My Favorite iPhone Cases for Every Situation

image

 

I understand that others might not change their iPhone cases daily like I do, but I think we can all agree that there are times when you need something different then your "everyday" case. Here are the cases that I'm using right now—for every situation. 



zBoost Cell Phone Signal Booster Review

image

The zBoost SOHO boosts cell phone signals for both voice and text for all of the major cell phone providers. The zBoost cell phone booster consists of two main parts: the base unit that resides indoors and the external antenna which resides on the roof of your home. Though installation wasn't plug in and go, we are thrilled that we can now disconnect our landline and finally use our cell phones in our home.



Sennheiser's Momentum: Premium Bluetooth Headphones for the Discerning Audiophile

image

Sennheiser recently sent me a pair of their premium quality Momentum Bluetooth over-ear headphones ($499.95) to try out for a little while. They had quite the effect on me, a powerful one that has been difficult to put into words. Any description I give of these headphones could easily seem exaggerated, but the fact of the matter is that the Sennheiser Momentum wireless are simply one of the best pairs of headphones I've ever come across, certainly one of the best Bluetooth headphones I've had the opportunity to try out. I think you'll be impressed with my findings, read on after the break for all the details.



LifeCharge JuicyPACK Offers Best of Both Worlds

image

Chocolate and Peanut Butter. Great on their own, but even better together. That appears to be the concept behind the JuicyPACK from LifeCharge ($69.99). I've written about LifeCharge's iPhone cases, but I was pleased to see that they also make a stand for iPads. They also make a battery pack for iPads. Actually, it's the same thing.



ZAGG Pocket Keyboard Review

image

Portable keyboards are often small yet awkward to carry around. They are cramped and often flimsy, and sometimes not worth the materials used to make them. The ZAGG pocket keyboard ($69.99) admittedly uses much of the same light materials, and though it isn't as sturdy as some less flexible keyboards we've tested, its smart design allows you to fold it up like origami for easy stowage.



Apple Watch Sightings Continue

image

Just as politicians are showing up in Iowa ahead of the upcoming Presidential election, the Apple Watch is starting to pop up in fashion magazines around the world as the Apple Watch announcement nears. Angela Ahrendts, Apple's new head of retail and former CEO of Burberry, is pulling strings (threads?) to get the watch seen in fashionable places. It's probably not much of a sales job... what fashion or style magazine wouldn't want early access to the most anticipated fashion accessory of 2015?



After the Apple Watch, Virtual Reality?

image

With the March 9 announcement date revealed, with the cheeky "Spring Forward" message indicative of turning clocks ahead, we can now look forward to what comes after the Apple Watch. Yes, there will be updates to the MacBook Air, with a 12-inch screen expected, and maybe a 12-inch iPad Pro as well. Others have written about the 200 engineers working on an Apple Car, although I think the likelihood of Apple shipping cars is still small.



Prong is Back, with a Battery This Time

image

The Prong case was one of the most promising cases when it debuted at CES 2014 a little over a year ago. It was the first, and only, case to include retractable prongs allowing it to plug directly into a wall socket. No need to carry a microUSB or Lightning cable.



Pebble Announces New Apple Watch Competitor

image

On Tuesday Pebble announced their new Pebble Time watch, which will be available in May. At the same time, they launched a new Kickstarter campaign to help fund the device, with a starting price of $159 and an expected retail price of $199. Pebble Time uses a new interface called Timeline that's based on a timeline that includes notifications, news, weather, sports, traffic, reminders, and more. Like the Apple Watch, the timeline elements are fed by apps. And like the Apple Watch, you can get information at a glance. The new interface puts apps more in the background and exerts a bit more control over the user experience. This, too, is reminiscent of Apple Watch.
