    18 April 2014, 3:19 pm by: Nick Guy

    Unlike the faux leather and jute versions of the past, this Booqpad is made of nubuck and polyurethane. Fully unraveled, the main folio portion is a 17.5” piece with several folds, and embedded magnets. On one side there are a total of four slots: two longer…

    18 April 2014, 2:29 pm by: Nick Guy

    One of the first applications we install whenever we end up with a new MacBook is coconut-flavour’s coconutBattery (Free). It’s been around for as long as we can remember, and just recently, version 3.0 was released. This free little app will tell you…
  • News: iLounge Game Spotlight: Hitman GO

    18 April 2014, 1:45 pm by: Phil Dzikiy

    The Hitman game series has proven popular enough to spawn a number of sequels, as well as a feature film. And with the release of Hitman GO ($5), it’s clear Square Enix thinks the franchise still has legs, as Agent 47 makes a big move from stealth…

  • Review: Rokform Fuzion+ for iPhone 5/5s

    18 April 2014, 10:09 am by: Nick Guy

    Given all its layers, it’s not surprising that Fuzion+ is a somewhat bulky case. It’s not overwhelmingly large, but it is taller, wider, thicker, and heavier than many cases. The layers are meant to be installed one at a time, which isn’t as laborious as…
  • Review: Incipio Tek-nical for iPad Air

    17 April 2014, 3:32 pm by: Nick Guy

    The most obvious upgrade to the case is the iPad shell. It’s still mostly plastic at the core, but instead of that material running all the way to the edges and leaving exposed buttons, there’s now a perimeter of rubber. This adds a level of drop…

  • Mac: Made by Cardinal Lifta

    17 April 2014, 1:12 pm by: Nick Guy

    If there’s a material other than aluminum that Apple accessory makers seem to love, it’s wood. Time and time again, we see products that use the natural material, which plays so well against the silver and black of today’s Macs. The newest addition to…
  • Review: Lepow ADD Power Bank

    17 April 2014, 10:46 am by: Nick Guy

    With ADD, Lepow’s designers seem to really have come into their own. It’s not fancy or flashy. Instead, the system features simple matte plastic rectangles, an elegant look that’s functional, too. The main pack, which comes in blue or pink, stands 4.7”…

  • First Look: Jabra Rox Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds

    17 April 2014, 10:02 am by: Nick Guy

    Although great, affordable Bluetooth earbuds have been available for almost a year now -- see Plantronics' BackBeat GO 2 as a good example -- the field of competitors hasn't grown as quickly as we might've expected. Jabra's Rox Wireless ($130) is one of the…

  • Mac: Bohemian Coding Sketch 3

    16 April 2014, 1:42 pm by: Nick Guy

    We like to think creative design work shouldn’t be limited to only those who can offered the right software, and that’s why Bohemian Coding’s Sketch 3 ($50) is so appealing. For a reasonable price, the app gives you graphic design tools that would…

    16 April 2014, 10:11 am by: Nick Guy

    Like almost all keyboard cases, this one is a hard plastic folio, with the keyboard located on the inside of the front cover. Oftentimes, the outside of the lid is made to look nice, even though it ends up being the base when you’re typing. Favi, on the…
