Whenever a new device that has had as much anticipation and coverage as the iPad the second most important thing about the device launch is; accessories. For the iPad my biggest concern was how I was going to protect it, especially when it is in my backpack for travel/school. In comes Case-mate and Speck. Both [...]

Normally we cover advanced devices and smartphones as well as other tech news, for a change of pace I decided to take a look at the Motorola i890 from Sprint which features their push-to-talk Nextel Direct Connect service. It has been awhile since I used a regular “dumb phone”, a flip phone at that. So [...]

Are you guys tired of reading and hearing about the iPad yet? My guess is you are in one of two boats; you either can’t get enough of the coverage or you have despised it from the day the rumors that it might one day exist began. Either way you are more than welcome to [...]

Let me start by saying that I am not a fan of bluetooth headsets, never have seen the point to them. I realize that they make driving and talking on the phone easier, but I have never liked how they fit in my ear, pick up too much background noise, and I cannot hear anything [...]

One of my biggest pet peeves of using my BlackBerry at work or in a public place is the feeling that the person next to me is staring at my screen while I am mid conversation with someone. I know I can’t be alone in feeling like this. I have found something that eliminates this [...]

What a week. We covered the seemingly nonstop iPad news with some restraint to spare our readers of the constant barrage of “breaking news.” Then of course, there was that April Fools joke that got us, but we don’t have to keep bringing that up do we? A roundup of the stories from this last [...]

I have been playing around with the Verizon Push-To-Talk application that was released today for the BlackBerry Tour and I have to say I am impressed. I was planning on making a video originally but since both contacts phone numbers are on practically every single screen, I figured a screen or two would suffice. First [...]

I’ve been using the Motorola Droid for a few months now and I absolutely love this device. It’s been available on Verizon for quite a while now and in my opinion is the phone to get on Verizon. I have been a die-hard BlackBerry user for a while and this phone could replace my BlackBerry. [...]

Orbit groups your friends into orbits so you can decide how often and how much you hear from them…giving you the power to keep things quiet or receive real-time notifications about your contacts. And now users can search for local business [...]

When it comes to device skins, I am not a big fan. I can never get them installed correctly so they have bubbles, or dirt under them. The screen is hard to see with them on. This may be a user issue, but regardless I’m always frustrated with them. Enter BodyGuardz. BodyGuardz solves every issue [...]

This last week I took a day off of work to go up and see the amazing people at Otterbox in Fort Collins, Colorado. I really wasn’t sure what to expect with my visit, but after having met some of the team at CES I knew it would be a good time. I was surprised [...]
