If you’ve been reading this site for a while you may have read that I’m a musician, or at least at heart. I played in bands when I was younger, began writing and recording my own material years later, and continue to do so now. One thing that was always a pain was the setup process. The setup of recording and the setup for playing was never fun, and in the end produced poor results at home. If only IK Multimedia and the iPad existed when I was younger. Thankfully, they do now, and I’m reaping the benefits from it. If you’re a musician, you should be too. (more…)
IK Multimedia has announced their first wireless portable speaker designed for musicians. Now musicians can get studio monitor quality sound and power everywhere from a compact wireless portable stereo speaker. (more…)
Yes, there are new iPads coming in a very short time. But that doesn’t mean the previous models won’t still be for sale…and it certainly doesn’t mean those who buy them or already have them won’t need great protection for their devices! So, with that, here is a look at the Lifeproof Nuud Case for the iPad. (more…)
I recently brought you details about Just Mobile Lightning cables, which are great! Now I want to give you the rundown on their two car adapters for charging your iOS device on the go, the Highway Duo and Highway Max. If you’re someone who loves the Just Mobile brand and the look of their products, and you find your iOS devices in need of a charge on the way home, the Highway Duo and Max are going to be right up your alley.

A little while ago I was able to review the TruGlide Pro stylus, and found it to easily be one of my favorite stylus options for the iPad yet. Some people find the idea of a stylus pointless, but for me and many others out there, they are useful and fun. In addition to the traditional stylus, a few companies have gone as far with the stylus as to create a paintbrush feel. One of those companies is LYNKtec, and the stylus is the TruGlide Pro Artist Paintbrush Tip. (more…)
Just Mobile create some really great iOS and Mac accessories for the user who wants their extras to look great as well as function that way. From stands to cases to storage, Just Mobile is one of my favorite accessory makers out there. Their attention to detail and dedication to quality perfectly compliment the iPhone, iPad, or Mac.
In addition to the above mentioned items Just Mobile also carries Lightning cables for charging or syncing your iOS devices. Without surprise to fans of this company like me, these cables are not only better looking than the standard Lightning cable, they have a variety of sizes and styles. (more…)
With the rumor-mill yapping about an Apple iWatch or iBand or some sort of wearable computing device coming soon (but no ideas as to when), I have been increasingly interested in this type of technology. While Google Glass sounds interesting, it just isn’t the type of thing I want to use, nor is it in my budget at all. However, fitness bands and monitors are. So, I took it upon myself to give a few a try and see what it was like. (more…)
There are designers of Apple accessories that just get it. They understand that dedicated Apple users want a certain type of quality, and Twelve South is one of those companies. With the Twelve South HiRise for iPhone and iPad mini users get an amazingly beautiful stand and charging station for the iPhone 5 and iPad mini with Lightning dock connectors.
The HiRise does exactly what the name implies, it takes your device and brings it up a level. It puts it up a few inches off the surface, keeps it secure, and charges or even syncs it to iTunes. Not once when I had my iPhone 5 or iPad mini on the HiRise did I concern myself with it falling, it’s tight and secure. (more…)
We’ve all been there. That place or time when our iPhone or iPad is about to die, leave us without Maps or music, or even a way to text or call someone we need to. We’ve brought a charger, but there are no free outlets at the airport, the hiking trail has no outlets, or some other situation when you don’t have a way to charge your device. It’s a trying time. Thankfully there are solutions. Like the Gum++ by Just Mobile. (more…)
For those who travel a lot there is nothing more frustrating than a poorly designed bag, other than the insane security that is. The right bag can make all the difference when packing up your technology for on-the-go use and travel. I’ve used many different messenger style bags over the last few years when it comes to packing my iPad, iPhone, charger, and various accessories. They do an okay job, but it becomes a chore after a while. That is why the Recon One is so great. It takes the frustration out of loading up my technology, and even makes it useful after doing so.
