Last year when iPhone 6 comes out, I received the Aero case from UAG for review and eventually it becomes from go-to case for my iPhone 6. I use it almost everyday, except having my olloclip lens clipped on. The case offers superb protection to my fragile iPhone 6 and I don’t have to worry breaking it despite that I have Apple Care+ associated with the device.
I have been using a SCOTT Bluetooth Portable Speaker BT700 for about 1.5 year and I am quite satisfied with its performance, sound quality and the base output. It costed me around $30 at that time and I felt that was quite a good deal.
Recently, before the Easter holiday, I found a real good deal on Amazon for BÖHM SoundBlock Wireless Bluetooth Speaker for around $50 only (original price $140). The customer reviews are good and it has quite a good rating. I personally really like the outlook of this speaker. The size is also optimal for my desk. Simply say this speaker is something that I have been looking for.
I have seldom been so crazy to purchase a gadget right on the launch day, especially accessories for my Apple Products. I usually wait and see and check out numbers of reviews before I cash in. But I really love this product at first sight and I wanted it for my MacBook Pro for long. It is BaseLift for MacBook presented by Twelve South, launched last Wednesday.
It is a super-thin, microfiber-layered integrated stand and lap pad for MacBooks, which fits all current MacBook Pro and Air models, with the following features in summary:
– Super thin and light (3.7 mm, 119 g)
– Tilts MacBook to a comfortable typing angle (10 degrees, elevates by 32 mm)
– Improves air circulation
– Protects your thighs from the heat emitted
– Attaches to MacBook to go everywhere you go
– Protects and adds comforts to the bottom of your MacBook
– Easy to remove anytime, leaving no residue behind
– Easily fits into most bags and MacBook cases
BaseLift features a two-piece design. You can find inside the package the primary BaseLift Pad and an optional secondary Fit Strip for 13 and 15-inch models. Don’t panic when you open the box as there is a very comprehensive installation guide with graphical illustrations to help you out in getting the product set up and works well. Notably speaking, don’t just look at the pictures but also the words, you need to be careful with the alignment of the pad in order to have the best balance and experience when you flip your MacBook upside down again.
After the success of FlashQ wireless flash trigger last year, Anita Yim and her team are taking things to the next level.

Despite the fact that I have been having fun in using olloclip lens for more than 2 years since iPhone 5, I did not spend time to review it as it is just very popular and well-known already. About a month ago, as a loyal customer, I pre-ordered the new olloclip 4-in-1 Photo Lens for iPhone 6 / 6 Plus and I have been playing with it for a week already. Here is the unboxing and my first impression to it.
The crowdfunded olloclip concept was brought to reality in 2011. Currently this famous brand offers lines of products of accessories for worldwide mobile photographers, including the latest flagship 4-in-1 Photo Lens for for iPhone 6 & 6 Plus, as well as Telephoto and Macro lens. The company opens up numerous possibilities for users to capture creative photos and selfies beyond the limit of the smartphones.
After a few reviews in the past on iPhone 5/5s cases which have different special features, functionalities and characteristics, however, I have not touched on any of the protective cases available in the market. Today let us take a look at a Aero case for iPhone 6 from Urban Armor Gear (UAG) that I have been staying with for a week.
If you have seen one of our flying ads on the website, you may have already know UAG.

A while ago we introduced to you Zcan Wireless that is currently at the stage of fund-raising for production. At the moment of this post, it has already exceeded the goal before it closes on August 30, 2014. While expecting it to come in near future, let us take a look at the currently available wired version – the Zcan+ Scanner Mouse today.
Wireless printers, wireless gamepads, wireless charges, the whole nine yards… You’ve seen it all till now.
But there wasn’t any wireless mouse scanner existing on Earth, until the Hong Kong based company DTOI (Design to Innovation) came out with Zcan Wireless – the world’s first wireless mouse scanner.
It features a design of a standard optical mouse, but doesn’t include a cord and includes a miniaturized scanner that enables users to scan text and images instantly.
It has been quite some time from my previous review on an iPhone case here. Since then, I have also tried out some more other cases with specific functionalities such as the Otterbox wallet case. This is not just for interest but also because of a reason of need as it is handy for me to carry downstairs for some snacks.
Recently I have been looking for a tough case for my iPhone 5s mainly used for traveling that I planned for the year, especially for hiking, sunshine and beach. So I need a waterproof case with shock protection. But what I have seen in the market, the options look bulky, and they are heavy and expensive. More importantly, there are quite some trade-offs for screen responsiveness and button accessibility.
Thanks to Dog & Bone, I recently received a case that I have been looking for that suits my picky requirement.
The trend of shooting images and videos with an iPhone continues to go strong and despite the availability of fully-equipped DSLRs, a lot of individuals still prefer to use smartphones because of convenience and therefore look for ways to enhance the shooting experience on mobile.
This is where smartphone lenses come in: they significantly improve the shooting experience on your iPhone. The latest in this domain comes in the form of ‘Moment lenses’, a new campaign on KickStarter that aims to take iPhoneography to the next level.
