    Review: BeyondCell Tri-Shield Case for the HTC One

    The HTC One is a premium device, and the metal uni-body construction feels really good in the hand. Unfortunately, aluminum can be dinged and scratched–so if you use your phone in rough conditions, you really want to throw a case on it. On the CTIA show floor, BeyondCell hooked my HTC One up with a little more protection, and the case sells for a VERY nice price…

    Review: The Charge Card – Wallet Sized, Credit Card Shaped USB Cable

    I love a good Kickstarter success story. I met up with the Charge Card guys on the CTIA show floor, and they were kind enough to hand me a sample of their new wallet sized USB cable. Let’s take a look at this great little back-up charge and sync solution. For more info on Charge Card, head over to: http://www.chargecardproject.com/

    Review: OtterBox Defender (1 of 3) – Rugged Case for the Asus Nexus 7

    First up, THE NEXUS 7! I loves me some RUGGED phones, tablets, and cases! After seeing our review of the OtterBox Armor case for the iPhone, Otter was kind enough to send us out some examples of their Defender line of cases. We’ll be looking at these in a three part video review to talk about each case specifically. For more info on OtterBox: http://www.otterbox.com/

     
  • Juan at CTIA 2013: Hands On With Kingston’s MobileLite Wireless Card Reader

    Juan at CTIA 2013: Hands On With Kingston’s MobileLite Wireless Card Reader

    It’s funny how these trade shows work. A blogger pal of mine forgot to pack not only his memory card reader, but also the cable for his camera. Poor guy was on deadline yesterday to cover events on the show floor with no way to transfer images off his camera. And then we happened upon Kingston’s booth. This MobileLite Reader is a bit bigger than most phones and connects to PC’s, iOS, and Android devices over WiFi. Pop in an SD card, or connect a USB flash drive, and you can share the contents of that card or drive with multiple devices up to a hundred feet. The 1600 mAh battery can power the device for about 6 hours of actual use, and in a pinch you can leach off of the MobileLite to recharge your phone. Trying it out on the show floor, even with a bunch of other […]

    Review: id America’s Metropolitan In-Ear Headphones

    id America sent us a pair of their new Metropolitan “In-Ear” Headphones. I’m very particular about inner-aural ear buds. If I’m going to be shoving something INSIDE my ear canal, I expect a certain tier of performance, fit, and finish. I’m not one to be satisfied with the disposable buds that usually come with our phones and MP3 players. Let’s see if these $30 Metropolitans have what it takes to stay plugged into my phone.

    Video Review: Sony Walkman W Sport MP3 Player (Meb Keflezighi Edition)

    In this day and age, the idea of reviewing a standalone MP3 player felt a bit dull. I mean, I haven’t even been in the market for one since I got a smartphone. However, after years of owning big smartphones, they aren’t always a great solution for going on a long run. Ever  wreck a phone with sweat “water damage”? The notion of going back to a standalone MP3 might be a bit “old school,” but niche solutions can sometimes work surprisingly well…
