  • Mac: Satechi 10 Port USB 3.0 Premium Aluminum Hub

    47m By Jeremy Horwitz
    “No, no, no,” you said when you saw Satechi’s 7 Port Aluminum Hub on iLounge + Mac earlier this year. “Seven extra USB ports for my Mac is not enough. I must have 10 ports.” If that plea sounds familiar, consider yourself lucky: Satechi heard you and…
  • Review: Logitech Keys-to-Go For iPad

    2h By Jeremy Horwitz

  • Review: Infinity Infinity One Wireless Speaker

    2h By Phil Dzikiy
    {image1} {image5} Infinity One has a gorgeous body — we think it’s one of the nicest speaker designs we’ve seen in quite some time. A black cylinder, it has a heavy aluminum body coated with a ceramic finish. It’s roughly 9” from end to end, 4” in…

  • Review: Pelican Protector for iPhone 6 and Voyager for iPhone 6 Plus

    Wed 3:50pm By Phil Dzikiy
    {image2} {image3} Protector is a fairly standard co-molded case, but that’s a good thing. The case has very good button coverage and responsiveness, appropriate port cutouts, and a substantial lip on the front of the case for screen protection. Protector…
  • Review: STM Flip for iPhone 6

    Wed 3:18pm By Phil Dzikiy
    {allimages} Flip will hold no more than two cards — you might be able to fit a third card, but then the cover won’t close as easily. We did find the two small suction cups worked very well for covering the phone’s screen when not in use. The plastic…

    Wed 2:02pm By Phil Dzikiy
    {image1} {image2} {image3} {image4} While we now feel that wallet folio cases deserve some recognition for being more useful than standard folio cases, Griffin really tiptoes along that line with Wallet Case for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The two tight card…

    Tue 11:52am By Jesse Hollington
    {image1} Although Jamstik looks small and unassuming compared to a traditional acoustic or even electric guitar, as a purely digital instrument it can eschew the trappings required to generate sound, in much the same way that electric pianos differ from…
