Hands On: Meditate Plus 1.01 (iOS)

05/04, 3:37pm

Whether you take meditation as an essential part of your life, or see it as just being able to shut up and stop thinking for a minute, there are an awful lot of meditation apps for iOS. Seriously.

We've come to Meditate Plus after anecdotal recommendations, which also said you can see this app as a model for how they all work.

Review: Jorno Bluetooth Keyboard

05/04, 9:27am

The Jorno Bluetooth keyboard and stand for tablets certainly looks nice. The gunmetal grey shell of the keyboard looks great while the unit is folded up. That's right -- the keyboard folds with two hinges into a swank-looking brick when not in use. There's also a nice case with a magnetic closure that transforms into a tablet stand. This keyboard and its care are ideal for travel -- it's lightweight and compact when not in use. There were some things we didn't like about it, but the designers were certainly on the right track when they came up with this one. Check our review to see what we thought about it.
