I use my MacBook Pro to develop apps, so I'm constantly taking it with me when I visit clients and colleagues, and even to Starbucks, which means frequently unplugging it and plugging it in. So I decided to get a docking and charging station in order to simplify my life. I was looking at the Thunderbolt docks from Belkin and Matrox, but at upwards of $300, it's hard to accept that price just for the convenience of using a single cable to connect all of my devices. A great compromise is the simpleDock ($119.95) from Kanex.
Sennheiser has made quite the name for themselves when it comes to premium headphones. It’s almost common knowledge that their wired headphones are like the Porsches of the headphone world. That’s all well and good, but what about their Bluetooth headphones; how do they rank against other high quality Bluetooth headphones currently available? I got to spend some time with the Sennheiser MM 550-X over-ear Bluetooth travel headphones ($499.00), which are Sennheiser’s top-of-the-line pair of Bluetooth headphones. Read on to find out how they performed and how they stack up in an ever more competitive Bluetooth headphone category.
It's springtime and folks are gearing up for travel and vacations. With that in mind, I'll be taking a look over these next months at some of the gadgets and gear that can make your adventurers more convenient, more fun, and more tech friendly.
If you’re traveling in the near future, and especially if you're traveling with family, this new hard drive/Wi-Fi hotspot from LaCie might just be the indispensable travel companion you've been waiting for.
SmartWatches are all the rage, even if Apple hasn't jumped in to the pool, yet. I've owned SmartWatches from Pebble, Martian Watches, i'mWatch, and more, and so far, none has met all of my requirements. One watch might have good battery life while another has a better screen or more apps, etc. So I'm happy to see more options.
Lots of folks like to fall asleep to ambient sounds or soft music or to run to inspirational music. However, most earbuds and headphones aren't a great solution. Enter the doctor-created SleepPhones ($39.95) and RunPhones ($39.95). These devices embed small speakers in headbands and connect either via traditional wires, or flexible and strong wires, or even Bluetooth, depending on your needs.
These days, to get me interested in your iPhone case, you gotta have a gimmick. I expect your case to offer protection, especially a raised lip that rises above the front glass. What else you got?
How about a kickstand to make it easy to view movies hands free? Maybe a way to redirect audio so instead of projecting sound down, it is projected towards me? And make sure you offer it in lots of colors.
Lifedge is a relatively new company on the iDevice case manufacturing scene. Based in the UK, their products can be purchased both locally and abroad. Lifedge specializes in creating classy, low-profile, ruggedized waterproof cases for iDevices. Currently their catalog of cases consists of an iPhone 5 version, (which is compatible with the 5s, though without allowing Touch ID use) and an iPad 2–4 compatible case. As of yet, they do not offer a case option for the iPad mini or mini with Retina, nor do the have an iPad Air case, but hopefully we will see a wider case selection of iDevice cases from this fledgling company in the near future. Stay tuned to iPhone Life and I'll keep you posted as their product line continues to grow. In the meantime, let's take a closer look at some of the details and specifics of these waterproof and highly durable iDevice cases.
We do enjoy the games at iPhone Life. What's not to love about having something like a kabillion titles to choose from?! So, we decided to run a series amongst the gamers here that highlight our favorites over the years (some of us been swiping, tapping, or joysticking since the 1970s), and expound a bit on our opinions about freemium, downloadable content (DLC), and regular old-school purchase models. Siva Om has regularly covered this area (and does a superb job) in his column, but the other iPhone Life gamers thought maybe we would each throw in our two cents as well. Here is mine...
Steve Jobs didn't like the idea of keeping an iPhone in a case. So much effort went into making a functional work of art, that hiding it in a case was sacrilegious to him. Maybe he needed to get his eyes on the Berlin and Sydney Birdcage Designer Cases from Strong N Free.
