September 3, 2015 // 0 Comments

In these dog-days of generic Lovecraftian smorgasbords, a collection entitled The Monstrous could easily evoke jaded expectations of yet more creaking tentacles and stale Yog-Sothothery. Even a name like Ellen Datlow, doyenne of horror/weird anthologists, might not conjure up greater hopes, though [...]

The folks at Inateck have sent me another device, a 2 port car charger with an Apple Certified Lighting Connector. With this device, you can charge one iDevice and two other devices all at the same time. The package comes with a micro USB cable as well, so out of the box you can charge two devices, [...]

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 [...]

The folks at Inatek were kind enough to send me two of their iPad sleeves to review—a matching pair for my iPad Air and my iPad Mini. The sleeves are both made of a very nice felted material and are a great choice for on-the-go protection. Their offer came at a perfect time for me because I [...]

My Season of Tech Upgrades concluded with the arrival of my sparkly new Macbook Air. My existing Macbook Pro is about five years old, and showing its age. I installed Mavericks over the summer and managed to eke out a few more months, but lately have been finding that it has to stop and [...]

It has been the season for tech upgrading in our house! My iPad and Macbook both got replaced, and we got a second Apple TV for the main television. I don’t love doing all of this. It is nice to have new things, but I always cringe at spending the money! Thanks to a well-timed sale of my [...]

You know how sometimes that thing you wanted without even realizing you wanted it comes along? That was my reaction when I received the email from 1 Voice about their new Bluetooth ear warmers. They sent me a sample, and I was eager to try them out, especially since temperatures have been dropping, [...]

Accessory Review: Inateck USB 4 Port Hub

Some Android devices have micro-SD slots and some, like the Nexus 7, do not. If you listen to a lot of music or like to load video to your device, you know it’s easy to run out of space. Without on-board expandable storage, what are your options? I just came back from a camping trip, and I [...]
