It’s getting to be that time of year when people will be deciding on gifts to give for the holiday. With the Kindle Paperwhite now being marketed as the mid-range offering in Amazon’s eInk reader line up, I’m betting there will be a number of them wrapped in colorful paper soon. [...]

One of the types of tablet, ereader, or smartphone accessory that tends to become the focus of endless experimentation, trial and error, and questing for further improvement – at least for me – is stands. The perfect balance of portability, stability, viewing angle, is the kind of topic [...]

Okay, yes, I admit the first time I saw this, my reaction was something like: weird steampunky fusion of tablet and mechanical spider. I don’t know which of us started singing “Spider Thing” to the tune of “Spider Pig” from the Simpsons, but both my husband and I have [...]

Having taken advantage of the recent Best Buy trade-in program and securing myself a shiny new iPad, I found myself in need of a case. My old iPad 2 case didn’t quite fit the fourth generation model. I like slim cases that don’t cover the bezel, and I decided to try the Ridge model by [...]
