Turn Your iPad into a Full-Fledged Desktop with the myKeyO

image

Increasingly, iPads are replacing laptops and even desktops as the computing platform of choice, especially in schools. But the onscreen keyboard is often the weak link. There are a plethora of Bluetooth keyboards, notably Apple's own pricey Wireless Keyboard. It could get expensive to outfit each student with one.



Hengedock Has a Place for Everything

I'm on a train back from CE Week, blogging by iPad with a compact Bluetooth keyboard. While it's convenient to travel light, I will be glad to get back to my 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display. In fact, I won't be using that Retina display all that much, because I now have my MacBook hooked up to a pair of 24-inch monitors and the MacBook is tucked away in the new Hengedock docking station.



CE Week in June is like Christmas in July

I'm on an Amtrak train heading from Rochester, NY, to New York City to attend CE Week. CE Week is like a mini CES, with hundreds of vendors instead of thousands; but it's a nice way to see the latest technology, in one location, in a short time. I will be writing about many of the new products this week and next, but for now, I thought I'd write about some of the gear that makes it practical to work on the train.

Harrod's Upgrades iPhones, iPads, and Cases with Expensive Bling

Since my recent trip to London, I've shared many travel tips. But this time I'm going to just let the following images speak for themselves. They come from the technology section of the upscale department store Harrod's. Look not only at the beauty of the crystals, diamonds, and gold plating, but at the prices associated with them. Keep in mind, a gold-plated iPhone 5s covered in diamonds becomes obsolete just as quickly as your basic model at AT&T or T-Mobile.



Give Your iPad A Makeover With A Protective Skin From iCarbons (Review)

image

The iPad mini with Retina display's portability is definitely one of its biggest selling points. Unfortunately, the more you take it around, the more likely you are to accidentally cause some damage. The wise thing to do would be to get a case; but if you don't want to take away from the iPad mini's natural form, a protective skin from iCarbons ($14.95-$24.95) is a great substitute.



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

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!

Back in college, at Carnegie Mellon University, one of my professors posed the question, who was richer? Our choices were historical figures like King Louis, Julius Caesar, Andrew Carnegie, Napoleon, George Washington... and ourselves. The answer was each of us... None of those ancient figures could access any movie on demand via NetFlix or iTunes. None of them could communicate instantly with someone across the world, by video no less. They couldn't "see" star systems and planets as we can with apps like StarWalk. Modern technology makes our lives richer than the wealthiest people long since gone.



Best iPad Cases, Reviews: iPad Cases, Covers and Sleeves

When searching for the best iPad cases, covers or sleeves, you always look to find the best that fits your needs.  Cases should not only protect your tablet, but it should also show a glimpse into your personailty.  Articles like the Go Ahead and Brag, with Braggables.com, can help to illuminate what that is.

While you strive to cover your basic needs, you also look for cases that are practical and safe.  The Griffin TechSafe Case for iPad 2 Review is a perfect example of when you simply want an iPad case that will work, while at the same time keep your investment safe.  Although, perhaps you don't need a case that is built for trade shows and you only wish to protect your tablet while going through your daily activities or travels.  The best iPad cases, like the Piel Framma, can help show one of the possible options that can provide an elegant or simple design.  The Maroo iPad Case is another example of practicality meets fashionable.  Either way, we are confident that our website will guide you to the best cases, covers or sleeves that you want and need.

Another thought to have when considering what cases or cover you want to buy is whether or not it will fit into your car mount.  There are several car mounts that won't allow for your device to be in both the mount and its case.  So obviously you will need to make sure that the case is compatible.  Or perhaps your will always carry your device and want a cover with a handle.  Handles on the back can make it safer to hold, but some may not want the extra bulk.  These trade offs can help you to see what kind of cover you may want.

What ever your style may be, you can find more than enough here at iPhone Life.
