If you’ve been looking for an alternative streaming service to Netflix, there’s one service that many, including myself, have probably overlooked until now – Amazon Prime Instant Video.
iPhones are gorgeous and expensive devices. So, it’s natural to want to protect that investment and preserve its elegant design. While most cases effectively safeguard the beauty of the iPhone, they tend to make it less than beautiful in the process.
There are cases however, like the Incase Leather Snap Case that offer protection and rugged good looks, in a thin, premium leather covered hardshell, that doesn’t compromise the elegant design of the iPhone.
If you own an iPhone, you’ve discovered it does a lot. If you’ve visited the App Store lately, you’ve discovered with apps, it can do even more. While the iPhone comes bundled with already useful software features, imaginative developers are continually finding new and clever ways to augment your iPhone experience through Apps.
Weather apps are among the most downloaded because they offer more useful information than the built-in app. I’ve found however, many of these apps are typically harder to use than they need to be.
Battery runtime on mobile phones isn’t what it used to be. I used to charge my cellphone and expect it to run for days before my next charge. But let’s face it, mobile phones aren’t just phones anymore.
Today’s mobile phones, particularly smartphones, have more in common with laptops than they do with cellphones. If you’re like me, you’ve come to this realization long ago and use your iPhone as you would your laptop. And, because it does practically everything that a laptop can do, minus the bulk and weight, it’s probably become your only mobile computing device.
However, this level of performance also draws power too, giving me the same mediocre battery life I would get from my laptop. If you’re looking for a way to keep your iPhone 5 running all day, while leaving all the charging accessories at home, I’ve found an integrated battery case to be the best solution.
For people like myself who have a horrible sense of direction, or simply hate to ask for directions, driving to a desired location has never been easier. GPS navigation has, for the most part, taken the planning and guess work out of finding a route to where I need to go. However, one area of turn-by-turn direction that In-Dash and Mountable GPS systems continue to fumble with, is building routes around the unpredictability of traffic and conditions on the road.
If you’re buying a car or just shopping for a Mountable GPS Device, consider the following before you plunk down that small fortune to add that fancy navigational system to your dashboard: There are far better and less expensive solutions available. One in particular I’ve found to be fantastic…
After Apple’s recent change from the nearly decade old 30 pin dock connector to the new and more adaptable Lightning connector, much demand for new Speaker Docks have been on the rise.
While an integrated speaker and charging station has its utility value, I’ve found “Speaker Docks” often to be accessories with limited versatility or packed with features redundant to the ones found on the iPhones themselves.
Mobile Phones aren’t just Phones anymore. iPhones in particular are fully featured computers with an amalgam of numerous functions and technologies. All the gadgets I once carried in a bag have been combined into one remarkably small device that fits comfortably in my pocket.
It is a wondrous feat of engineering, its features make it an indispensable tool of productivity, and it is not cheap.
If you too own an iPhone and sometimes worry about the potential hazards that could destroy that investment, either of the following two protective solutions I regularly use may be what you’re looking for.
Devices are more mobile – which in turn, make us more mobile.
If you’re like me, you have a bag full of battery powered gadgets. If you’ve been following my blog, you’ve undoubtedly noticed a recurring gadget from my bag that is a battery called the Mophie Powerstation. It’s often mentioned for its ability to charge all my other gadgets on the go. But, like all my other gadgets, it too may need a charge on the way to where I’m going.
Get A Car Charger… But Which One?
A friend asked me to help him choose which car adapters to purchase for his smartphone and tablet. We went through adapters specific to each device before I finally recommended The Incase Mini Car Charger (or chargers like it) because of these winning features…
Before you know it, summer will be upon us. If you live in places like California, it sometimes feels like summer never really left. Hot and arid climates make air conditioning a welcome comfort. However, staying indoors isn’t always fun. So, companies have made devices that help you stay cool on the go.
When searching for gadgets to keep me and my kids cool outdoors, I found mostly battery powered fans combined with spray bottles. These work by misting yourself with water and using the fan to evaporatively cool you.
Although this solution can work well, the spraying can also effectively get my camera and other gadgets wet in the process which is no bueno. Continue reading
Today, there are numerous gadgets and applications that work to help us accomplish our day to day tasks with little to no physical effort. These technologies enable busy professionals and parents like myself to do more in our day. However, these same conveniences can sometimes instead help to promote a sedentary lifestyle.
As it turns out, there are an increasing number of gadgets and apps that work to promote an active lifestyle through quantifying the physical exertion you do make and rewarding you for doing more.
The Nike+ FuelBand and it’s accompanying web and iPhone software is Nike’s answer to the growing demand for devices and services that help to motivate activity, track progress, and reward the user for the effort.
