Big Savings on Apple TV

image

I've been a big fan of the Apple TV for a while. In addition to Netflix and consumption of various forms of media, the AirPlay feature is a lot of fun. I can wirelessly project my iPhone or iPad's screen to a big screen using the Apple TV. There are even games that take advantage of AirPlay to project a different view to the public. Our family likes to use Party Doodle which works like Pictionary, and the iPad screen shows the clue while the Apple TV only shows the drawing in progress. Games like Real Racing let you use your iOS device as a controller and see a different view of the track, and fellow racers, on the big screen.

JVC gave me a set of Extreme Fitness HA-ETR40 earbuds ($39.95) to try. This sporty pair of earbuds with microphone should meet the needs of most athletes. It's waterproof and washable, so sweat won't be a concern. The customizable fit makes sure the earbuds will stay put during a workout.



Review: Kenu Highline for iPhone 6

Even with a protective case, there's still a chance you can damage your iPhone if dropped from a sufficient height. With the Kenu Highline ($29.95-$34.95), dropping your phone becomes a little safer. Just a little.



EZCharge Could Be the Best Car Charger You Can Buy

Bracketron gave me an EZCharge ($24.95) Dual High-Speed USB Charger to try. It could be the best car charger you can buy, and I say that because very often, such car chargers are free, as promotional items. But in this case, you get what you pay for. This car chargers offers a lot of features that make it worth paying for. 



How the Apple Watch Helps You Meet Health and Fitness Goals

The Apple Watch is cool. It might be the next big thing in smartwatches, and it's certainly a step above the rest when comparing it to wearable fitness monitors. 



Headphones Roundup: Polk Nue Voe, Phiaton MS 100 BA, and TunePhonik iZX5

image

I conducted an extensive review of three headphones. This review includes aesthetics, features, and sound. Like many areas of modern electronics, hundreds of headphones exist in a seemingly infinite variety of shapes and sizes. The most important element though, is good fit and good sound. Beyond that, nothing else really matters.



ACCELL PowerGenius: Gadget Power Options Galore!

image

I missed these guys this year at CES, but wanted to swing back for a quick product review, since they have one or two new and interesting power gadgets and sent a review unit for us to try out: The PowerGenius Rotating 6-outlet Surge Suppressor ($29.99). If you're an iPhone Lifer, we know you are always on the lookout for smarter power options. ACCELL has an array of portable and home-and-office-oriented solutions to consider.



Choosing Which Apple Watch to Buy

image

We've "sprung forward." Now we know what the specs are for the Apple Watch, and most importantly, what it will cost, in each configuration. We know that the somewhat smaller watches with a 38 mm case (height) will cost $50 less than the 42 mm ones. We also know there is no functional difference between the smaller one and the larger one. For my money, I will probably get the smaller one. It should be somewhat less bulky and perhaps more importantly, $349 is closer to an impulse buy (at least as Apple products go) versus $399. As an app developer with several watch apps on the horizon, I know I need to own an Apple Watch. But that doesn't mean I need a fancy one.



March 9 Apple Announcement: Apple TV-Same Device, Lower Price. Featuring HBO NOW.

The Apple TV hasn't had a product refresh in about three years. So when Tim Cook brought up the Apple TV at today's event, I was so excited to see what Apple was about to reveal. At long last I thought, a new Apple TV! Something fresh and refined to compete with the likes of the Chromecast and Roku streaming devices!
