Some moms are tech moms; some moms are intimidated by the TV remote. It doesn't make us love them any less, but it can make them difficult to gift-shop for. Still, despite every mother and every woman being different, when it comes to the Mother's Day Tech Gift Challenge, we say "challenge accepted." These are the gifts we guarantee that every mother will love. That would be guarantee in slightly less than a legal and refund kind of way, but still, confidence is high.
Once you step away from buying Apple's Lightning cables, you don't go back. Previously, we had worn out too many to make us willing to keep paying the same price, but this time we wanted something Apple just doesn't do. We needed a short one, and that need led us to the Belkin six-inch/15.2cm Metallic 2.4-Amp Lightning to USB Charge/Sync Cable.
If you don't have an Apple Watch, you may feel that Christmas has already come for people who do -- and you've got a point there. If you do have an Apple Watch, though, you tend to adore it, and there can't be anything better for inserting yourself into a loved one's life and/or attention span than by giving them something to make the Watch even better. It can be done. It can. It's just not easy.
Belkin has announced its new Car Power Valet accessories, new charging accessories designed to fit in with the interior of high-end vehicles. These high-end car chargers utilize an embedded smartchip technology that determines the optimal level of energy pushed through to an iPhone, protecting devices from damage resulting from excessive charging.
It's like looking at photos of people standing in front of bookshelves: you want them to get out of the way so you can see what books they have. Similarly, whenever there's a review anywhere of a bag, admit it: you're curious to see what people are carting around in them. There is a serious point: until you buy one, you can only get a sense of the size of a bag by seeing what they're capable of carrying. No, it's just nosiness, isn't it? With the sole aim of hoping to twist your arm into showing us what's in your kitbag, here's the contents of mine.
Mobile accessory maker Belkin announced on Monday the availability of its newest device to accompany Apple's iPad Air 2, the Ultimate Lite Keyboard Case. The new case is the lightest premium case Belkin offers, weighing in at 306 grams, and carries a six-month battery life per full charge for the keyboard.
This is how it should always have been, and this is surely how it's always going to be in the future, but right now there is exactly one Apple Watch dock that comes with its own charger. Every other one, great and bad, requires you to use the charger that came with your Watch. Now, the Belkin Charge Dock for Apple Watch and iPhone has its own, so you can plug this into the mains by your bed, and leave the Apple charging cable in its box. Or take it with you on the road.
Smartphone and tablet accessory manufacturer Belkin today announced the Belkin Charge Dock for Apple Watch + iPhone. The Belkin Charge Dock is the first Apple Watch peripheral to feature an integrated magnetic charger for the watch, and a Lightning connector for an iPhone.
Today Belkin announced a new line of fashion-inspired charging cables. MFi certified to ensure iOS compatibility, these Lightning to USB cables are designed to clip on and off any bag, purse or keychain, so that users are never without a cable to charge their iPhone, iPod or iPad. The new fashion cables are available in three design options: a leather tassel, a braided USB clip, and a metallic keychain.
I'm in England, where you don't tend to lean over people and ask where you got that device. We're not really polite, we're just wary. Yet I've been asked that many, many times since I bought this Belkin keyboard case for my original iPad Air. It definitely looks great, it definitely looks immediately, obviously useful. The point of Living With is to examine beyond those first looks, though, and I think the question is whether, after 15 months of intensive use, I would buy it again.
