Review: Briggs & Riley Luggage Makes Superior Travel Companion

image

On my recent trips to London and Washington D.C., I had the opportunity to review several pieces of Briggs and Riley luggage. I found them all superbly crafted and well-suited for the life of the commuter. The lifetime warranty on all bags includes repair coverage even for damage caused by an airline (but it does not include cosmetic damage). Each bag includes a unique serial number so it can be registered, eliminating the need to find original proof of purchase should the bag ever need repair.



Need a case? Need a battery pack? Need a charger? Prong PWR Is all 3!

Power. You can never have enough. Just ask any president, king, or dictator. That's why I always try to have a spare battery charger or battery case plus the necessary cables. But it can be a pain to carry everything around, and you have to remember everything. Last week, our family stayed in a hotel and my daughter left her charger and cable plugged into the wall in the hotel room. Those Lightning cables aren't cheap!



Looking for Unique iPhone Cases? Cellairis Has What You Need

image

This year at CES I was able to meet a brand that was completely new to me. I immediately fell in love with the sparkles, texture, and durability I saw. Cellairis carries iPhone and iPad cases, portable chargers, headphones, speakers, and screen protectors. The products I am loving right now are their cases. Cellairis has cases for everyone: moms, dads, professionals, fashionistas, tweens and teens... like I said, everyone. Here are some of my favorites, but don't let me limit you—you should check out the Cellairis line for yourself



10 iPhone Accessories Every Nature Enthusiast Needs

image

Happy Earth Day everyone! I'll admit, I've got mixed feelings about the contemporary celebration day known as Earth Day, simply because I feel strongly that EVERY day should be approached with the love and respect for Mother Earth that Earth Day promotes. Nonetheless, once a year is better than nothing. We all have our own connection to this great planet and there's no shortage of cool gadgets, gear, and apps to help us get out there and enjoy all that this bountiful planet has to offer. I've put together a roundup (presented in no particular order) of some of my favorite items. This roundup features accessories that will encourage you to spend more time romping and frolicking outside, and that will support doing so with your modern-day tech in tow. The gear featured here isn't necessarily produced by any award-winning Eco-friendly companies, but they might inspire you to spend more time outdoors and perhaps develop a greater connection with this great planet and Mother Nature.



PhoneJoy Ships a Compact Controller that Grows with Your Phone

image

The popular Kickstarter project from PhoneJoy is now shipping and I had the opportunity to try it out. This is a Bluetooth controller that expands to fit just about any phone, in landscape or portrait. By any phone, that includes Android and iPhone, and thanks to the expanding nature of the device, the next generation of larger iPhones should fit as well!



Let Your iPhone Live the Dream with a Noreve Case

image

I'm a sucker for a nice, quality, leather case. But I also like to wear my iPhone on my hip, like a modern day gunslinger. The Tradition case from Noreve suits the bill and offers additional modern conveniences. It's "no dream" either, considering "rêve" is French for dream! When the case is closed, there are still cutout openings to display the time and to answer an incoming call or swipe to open. This can be a handy feature.



A Different Kind of iPhone Case from Diffr3nt

image

Steve Jobs encouraged us to Think Different, and at least one company has named themselves after this motto. They even spelled it differently, as in "diffr3nt." Their name isn't the only thing different. Their products are made in the USA, which is certainly different. They use unconventional materials, like canvas for their iPhone cases. And the inside of the case is lined with a grippy rubber material that looks like it came from an inner tube. All of this goes together to make a compact, comfortable, and colorful case that nobody else is likely to have.

We all love to take pictures. Fueled by social media and the era of the smartphone camera, it seems like we've all become semi-professional photographers.

Enter the Pelican S130 Sports Elite backpack ($178.18 at B&H Photo), with an optimal solution for carrying your higher quality digital-SLR on your adventures this summer.

image

If you like the specs of the iPhone 5s, including the TouchID fingerprint reader, but wish you could add some vibrant colors like the iPhone 5c, the folks at Colorant can help out. The Colorant Link Pro is a water resistant, dustproof, sandproof, and shockproof case that still leaves the TouchID sensor accessible.
