Hands On: Satechi Smart Travel Router

06/29, 4:30pm

A travel router that doubles as an international plug adapter

In our experience, there are two things -- both of which cause frustration and discontent -- that most international travelers can agree on: hotel Wi-Fi, and the fact that one probably won't be able to just plug something in to fix it. Not only are there differences in what's coming out of the wall in different regions, but the standards for how plugs are shaped are different as well. We were very interested, then, when we saw the Satechi Smart Travel Router. Aside from creating a personal Wi-Fi network when it's plugged in, it also provides two USB ports, and acts as a plug adapter.

Review: PWR Case by Prong

06/25, 5:02pm

A battery extender case that gives the user options for charging up.

Ultimately, there's one thing we all want from smartphone accessories; we want options. When it comes to keeping our iPhone charged, we don't always have them. Despite our best efforts, and theirs, not all of our friends have an iPhone like us, nor do we have a smartphone that charges off a micro USB cable as they do; then there's the issue of if we have something to plug into. The PWR Case by Prong gives us the options we crave when it comes to keeping our phone up and running. We'll tell you all about it in our review.

Hands On: Griffin All-Terrain Survivor Case for iPad Mini

06/25, 9:45am

A rugged three piece polycarbonate and silicone case

We are often going camping and taking technology with us. While we always do our best to take good care of our things regardless of our proximity to nature, it didn't strike us that maybe we need better protection for our mobile devices until we dropped one of our tablets in the mud. So, we obtained a Griffin All-Terrain Survivor case for our iPad Mini 2. While we had a bit of trouble with it at first, it's proven to be very useful in keeping our tablet grime and moisture free when we take it out and about.

Hands On: Satechi Seven-Port Multi Charging Dock

06/23, 2:14pm

A seven-port USB Charging Station keeps you from being powerless

Whether at home or at work, there's a lot of stuff that needs to be charged -- and sadly there's only so many outlets to charge them on. Even if the number of outlets isn't a problem, who wants to always have to answer the question, "have you seen the iPad?" with the answer, "have you checked the bathroom?" The Satechi Seven-Port Multi Charging Dock is a seven-port charging hub that only takes up one outlet, keeps everything together in a single location, and makes an effort towards the Herculean task of making the rat's nest of cables and devices look nice and neat.

Apple recalls, in-depth E3 game announcement coverage, more

06/22, 11:09am

Extend hotel Wi-Fi or make an impromptu media server anywhere

We tend to travel, we like to go camping, and we also enjoy using our technology while we're out and about. As such, we have a deep and abiding interest in external charging devices; if they do something useful besides charge our phones and tablets, so much the better. On a related note, we've often had not-so-great experiences with hotel Internet access. That's where the HooToo TripMate Elite travel router comes in.

Hands On: Samson Meteor M2 Multimedia Speaker System

06/19, 4:45pm

Vintage style speakers look great, fall short on audio quality

Let me paint an all-too-familiar scenario: You've got a stereo system that still works perfectly fine, but through a series of unfortunate events, you're stuck with speakers that don't work. Or maybe you just bought a brand new computer that lacks speakers at all, and you want to listen to Pandora while you surf the web without cutting off the outside world. Maybe the speakers of your favorite record player just don't do your albums justice. Whatever the reason, you're looking for new speakers ASAP. Allow us to introduce to you the Samson Meteor M2 Multimedia Speaker System, a retro-inspired speaker set designed to alleviate such problems.

Apple strips Monster of MFi licensing over Beats Electronics lawsuit

06/16, 6:00pm

Move follows lawsuit that originated prior to Apple acquisition

According to a lawyer for Monster, currently embroiled in a lawsuit against Beats Electronics that started due to Apple's takeover of the headphone and accessories maker, Apple has suspended Monster's ability to make "Made For i" (MFi) accessories -- a move that will affect nearly a quarter of Monster's 4,000 products. Monster counsel David Tognotti said that Apple's chief litigation lawyer said that Monster's lawsuit had "destroyed the working relationship" between the two companies.

Review: Rocki Wi-Fi audio streamer

06/15, 7:12am

Problematic device adds wireless streaming to existing stereos, speakers

Sometimes a simple idea spawns a helpful device for consumers. From making everyday tasks easier to sharing experiences with others, a small thought can blossom into a must have gadget. The Rocki is a device that likely spawned from a small idea like "sharing music" or "music streaming," taking to crowdfunding to build a pocket-sized unit to add wireless functionality to existing stereos and powered speakers. But does this $49 stream-enabling device turn the idea into something great, or does it buckle under the weight of possibilities? Find out in our review.

Hands On: Osmo, a Tangible Play system (iPad)

06/13, 1:30pm

A gaming system for iPads that melds virtual and physical environments.

We really enjoy it when a developer takes advantage of the fantastic technology we have today while still grounding an experience in our own physical space. Osmo does just that and does it nicely. The Osmo system uses an angled mirror clipped over the front-facing FaceTime camera alongside a stand, and coupled with free iPad apps to make the area directly in front of the iPad an active virtual and real-world play space. The combo is a very simple way of going about it, but the results can be magical.

Hands On: Xventure SmartLantern

06/12, 1:23pm

A handy flashlight that will also keep mobile devices going

We go camping regularly. Sometimes the conditions are quite primitive, sometimes there's Wi-Fi, but two things are always at a premium: light at night, and power ... always. So we were pleased when we first saw the Xventure SmartLantern: it's an external battery that doubles as a flashlight or a lantern. Now a great many external chargers we've seen over the years include a "flashlight" feature, by which we mean there's usually a single small LED sunk into the side of the case to use in an emergency. But the SmartLantern makes providing light a priority. Considering the name of the thing, it's arguably the primary function.

Review: Intuos Creative Stylus 2

06/08, 7:53am

Good heft, usability for the iPad-unleashing stylus for artists

The iPad has begged to be used as an art device since day one. The ability to draw directly on the screen, as well as its extreme portability, seemed to invite artists to tote it along for whenever inspiration strikes. For the first couple of years, there were artists capable of producing all sorts of fantastic works with the iPad using just their fingers and a handful of pioneering art apps. Fast forward a few years into the future, and people took notice of the iPad's potential, one of which was graphic design giant Wacom. Today in a full review we take a look at the Intuos Creative Stylus 2, the second iteration of Wacom's Bluetooth-enabled Intuos line for the iPad.

Review: WorldPenScan X

06/08, 4:05am

A handheld scanner and translation dictionary

We admit it, we've never had much luck learning another language. In the past, we've made liberal use of dead-tree edition and digital-translation dictionaries to figure out what people are trying to tell us. The WorldPenScan X is a tool that helps with that. The user scans some printed material with the device, and the text is sent to a mobile device or computer for translation; there's even a feature to pronounce the word or words, which seems useful if you're trying to order off a menu. It's a pretty great idea, but the device didn't always help us as much as we would have liked. Learn more in our review.

New cases feature full-size keys, double-space periods, Bluetooth 4.0, more

While Typo is legally barred from making any further smartphone keyboards, it is specifically allowed in its court settlement to make products for devices with 7.9-inch screens or larger -- the exact size of the iPad mini.

Review: Rapoo Bluetooth A600 NFC Speaker

06/03, 2:05pm

Just as good as the smaller version with the same drawbacks

For the most part, we enjoyed our experience with the smaller Rapoo A300, so we were interested in what would be different about the next model up in the line. The Rapoo A600 is about the mass of a good-sized potato, or of two A300s set side-by-side. We ran it through its paces, and while it performed admirably, we don't see -- or hear -- much in the way of a difference between it and the smaller version. Check out the full review here.
