One of the highlights of Microsoft’s Windows 10 devices event, just completed in New York, was the reveal of the Microsoft Display Dock. This slightly-less-than-hockey-puck-sized device gives you the ability to connect your Windows 10 phone to a monitor and use it like a desktop PC. If [...]

The folks at Inateck have sent me another device, a 2 port car charger with an Apple Certified Lighting Connector.

When Amazon sent me a Paperwhite 3 to review, they included an Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Leather Cover, and I’ve been using the cover for a couple of weeks now, long enough to form some impressions. I like the cover. It feels good in the hand, and it has a tiny bit of extra “cush” [...]

One of the downsides of owning an ereader with less popularity than an Amazon Kindle is finding accessories for it. I’m more comfortable reading a device when it has a case, so I wanted to find one for my Kobo Glo. I didn’t like the look of the official Kobo Glo HD sleepcover case, and [...]

It’s time for another Inteck review. As I’ve said in the past, I love their products, and they just sent me a new Kindle Paperwhite case. It’s too bad I gave it to my husband, because I like this one as much, if not more than, the previous one I reviewed. This one is going for the [...]

A new device means purchasing a new cover or case, and I decided to go for the official Amazon Standing Protective Case for Fire HD 6. I had looked at an M-Edge case in Best Buy, and I usually like their products. It was about $5 cheaper, but I ended up going with the Amazon case. Why? Because it [...]

Because we just can’t have too many external batteries, right? Of course not, so when cheero asked if I wanted a sample of the cheero Power Plus 3, I said, sure! This has turned into my favorite external battery. With 13400 mAh of power, it’ll charge a phone multiple times. On one [...]

I love Inateck products. The Kindle case they sent me last year is still the one I’m using, and it’s holding up nicely over time. I’m confident they have products which work well and will last. So when they offered to send me a sample of the [easyazon-link [...]

Spotted on shelves in branches of Waterstones but also found in many other locations and outlets across the UK, Wild & Wolf’s new range of highly styled styluses might well be looking to inspire some on-the-hoof highly mobile travel writing – or ticket bookings – if the [...]

One more thing transformed by digital technology: Gloves

January 19, 2015 // 1 Comment

The chill of a Hungarian winter brought home to me how gloves are being transformed by ubiquitous smartphones and tablets. Because where else are you likely to use your mobile phone than when … well, mobile? Let alone if you try to check Google Maps on it while walking, or if you try to read [...]

January 19, 2015 // 0 Comments

Readers may remember that a while ago I bemoaned the absence of premium pen brands from the stylus market. No longer. Now it seems that even haute couture brands are getting in on the stylus act, merging tech accessories with the kind of accessories that only Clueless‘s Cher would know how [...]
