Bring a Bag of Rhythm to Your Next Jammin' Party this Summer

image

Phil Spector gave us the Wall of Sound. Julie Andrews gave us the Sound of Music. Now, Bob Marley's family wants to give us the Bag of Rhythm. I've written about the House of Marley before, and their commitment to both quality audio equipment and charitable efforts through their 1love foundation, named after Bob Marley's classic song.



Review: Incipio iPhone 4/4S Stowaway

image

and let me add..."Credit Card Hard Shell Case with Silicone Core".  That's the official name of this case on Incipio's website. For brevity I'll just call is the Stowaway.

The first thing I always ask myself is "who is the case made for?" In the case of this case, I've selected three audiences:

  • men with gym memberships
  • men out on the town, particular at clubs
  • teenagers

A review for each.

Men with gym memberships



Breath=Battery Power? An Innovative iPhone Charger Concept

image

Yesterday I came across an article on the Huffington Post about a device (still in conceptual form) that charges your iPhone by converting your breath into electrical energy. Theoretically, it would allow you to charge your iPhone while sleeping, running, or performing any other act of breathing. The only catch? You have to wear this Storm Trooper-esque mask (shown at right).

 



Reflections on the OtterBox Reflex Series iPad 2 case

image

I was skeptical when I pulled the OtterBox Reflex Series for iPad 2 case out of its box. After taking it apart it kind of went to pieces. And I had to put them back together again. And the result was a good one. My iPad 2 has been sporting the OtterBox Reflex Series for a couple of days, except when attending business meetings (when it dresses up in a Qmadix Portfolio - more on that in an upcoming print edition of iPhone Life).



iKlip Studio Review

image

The dedicated iOS application and accessory designers at IK Multimedia have been hard at work amassing quite a catalog of products optimized for the musician. A recent addition to this line-up is an iPad stand that meets the stringent requirements of durability and stability that have been shown in the rest of their iKlip line. Does the iKlip Studio match these high expectations? Read on to find out.



Qmadix Metalix Snap-on Cover

This $29.99 was a bit of a revelation for me. I love cases, and have many to play with (keep reading...I have a good backlog of iPhone cases I'll be writing about over the next few weeks).

Don't leave us hanging, what revelation? The revelation that a case can almost make a phone feel lighter. I know, that doesn't make any sense, but this case fits so well, and adds just the right grip feel so that holding an iPhone feels better with the case on than with it off—and better than any case I've come across yet. 



iHangy Lets You Keep Your iPhone Close to Your Chest

I've written about the iDangle before, and while it has some advantages, there's a new kid in town called the iHangy that might appeal to the ladies.





Quick review of my quick new iPad

image
So the new iPad (which I will probably still call the iPad 3) has arrived, and I've migrated my contents and settings from my iPad 2 to it.


While some of my existing cases are too wedded to the iPad 2 form factor, my REV360 from Hub Innovations is fitting the bill nicely.



Kingston Wi-Drive tries to help you save money on the new iPad

image
Unfortunately, Apple doesn't allow SD card expansion and even the camera connection kit is limited in utility. If you haven't decided which model of the new iPad to buy, or if you wish the iPad or or iPhone you already own had more storage, you might want to consider the Wi-Drive from Kingston.



Widge is a fun and protective wedge shaped case for your iPad

image
I have been using a new iPad case from x-doria.com called the Widge. It's a protective hard foam case in the shape of a wedge. It looks a bit like an oversized doorstop, but the shape gives you two different angles for viewing and typing, but it also provides a couple of ways to grip the Widge.
