Altego Laptop Carriers: Travel in Style (review)

image

I have a ton of stuff to carry around with me at any given time. I travel quite frequently, and I take my laptop, iPad, and iPhone just about everywhere I go. Because of my need to carry so many vulnerable devices, I’ve tried roughly 11 gazillion bags that all promise to protect my stuff whilst looking stylish and awesome.

Some of the bags I’ve tried have been good, some have been ok, but one thing is for sure. I am now an expert on bags. Between my hunt for the perfect carryall and my wife’s handbag obsession, if you can carry stuff in it, I know all about it. When I got the 17-inch Polygon Sunfire Backpack ($89.99), and the 15-inch Polygon Sunfire Messenger Bag ($79.99) from Altego for review, I had high hopes for them. They’re special because they’re specifically made to keep Apple products safe and secure.

Canary Home Security System: Sophisticated Security Brought to Your iPhone

image

I like to think of myself as a pretty tech savvy guy, but I have to tell you that setting up my own home security system was a major pain. It was complicated and time consuming and I’m not looking forward to the day when I have to upgrade and do it all over again. But maybe I won’t have to now that the Canary home security system ($199) is coming on the scene.

When I first heard about this revolutionary system on Indiegogo, I felt as if my prayers had been answered! The Canary is a single device home security system that tracks motion, temperature, air quality, vibration and sound in your home. You control it through an iPhone or Android device where you receive instant alerts if there’s a sudden change like a rise in temperature (indicating a fire) or loud noise (from a possible break in).

CoolStream Portable Bluetooth Speaker [product review]

image

About a year ago, Coolstream made a splash with its Bluetooth receiver that plugged into iPhone docks. Since Bluetooth is a standard data transmission method, this allowed any Bluetooth streaming device to send music directly to the dock, keeping people rocking out to their favorite tunes.

Fast-forward one year, and Coolstream is at it again: this time with the BTS201 ($59.99), a highly portable Bluetooth speaker system.

Physically, the BTS201 is fairly small, about the size of an SLR camera (around 7x4x3 inches). Tacky rubber feet keep it stable and free from sliding around. Real metal speaker grills prevent damage to the drivers and cones and the perforations are tiny enough to keep debris out, down to about the size of a grain of sand. The enclosure is decidedly NOT waterproof (though it worked surprisingly well in a ziplock for splash protection by the pool). Control buttons and indicator lights on the top of the device are a bit hard to see from the front of the unit, but simply picking it up, adjusting as necessary, and then putting it back down again solves that handily.

CoolStream Bluetooth Headphones Review: Go Wireless and Never Go Back

image

As you guys know, I’m kind of an active guy. I love biking and running in particular, but I’ve gotta have my tunes with me! Anyone who has ever tried to go for a run with headphones plugged into a device knows what a phenomenal pain in the tookus it can be. You get tangled up, the ear buds get tugged out of your ears, and you spend more time fooling with the darn things than running. So, when I got the CoolStream Bluetooth Headphones ($49.99) in for review, I was pretty darn pumped!

And I had every right to be, but before we get started, here are some specs taken from the CoolStream website:
