Jot Pro/Mini review; two fine-tuned stylus offerings

Jot Pro/Mini review; two fine-tuned stylus offerings

The stylus, as we know it, isn’t very good. The digital pen replacement is often incorrect, clumsy, and downright useless. Let’s be fair that if the stylus were any kind of reliably good, we’d have found out how to go paperless long ago. Sadly, they’re typically not. The Jot Pro and Jot Mini aim to change your mind about the stylus, with their pinpoint accuracy and pen-like feel. Are they good enough to keep you reaching for your tablet or phone instead of paper, though?

MOS Kick revisited; version 2.0 improved in time-lapse

MOS Kick revisited; version 2.0 improved in time-lapse

The last time we talked about the MOS Kick, it was in the late stages of a crowdfunding campaign. Though it fell just short of its goal, the team behind MOS Kick weren’t going to give up. The tiny stand also made its Kickstarter debut at an odd time, when the iPhone 6 was all but confirmed and most were suspending any purchases until they got their hands on a new phone. Refined, we’re taking a second look at an old favorite.

Moshi iVisor Glass review — clearly superior

Moshi iVisor Glass review — clearly superior

Your iPhone 6 might need some protection, and Moshi is there for you when you need it. Aside from their long list of cases, the company that makes so many Apple device accessories also has a unique take on screen protection for the iPhone 6. Their iVisor Glass is a solid iPhone 6 screen overlay, and cleverly mimics the aesthetic of your phone. Though Moshi says you can skip the glass down the street, we don’t recommend that. We’ll test its everyday use, though.

TokyoFlash Kisai RPM Watch Review – a minimalist LED watch

TokyoFlash Kisai RPM Watch Review – a minimalist LED watch

Japan is famous for its minimalist approach to style. The Japanese design team TokyoFlash is behind some of the most unique watch designs on the market. They don't look like ordinary watches. The RPM is TokyoFlash's latest watch from their Kisai brand. It exemplifies a mix of futuristic yet simple design that we've come to associate with Japanese designs. The first thing you'll notice about the RPM is that there is no dial. This watch doesn't use numbers or hands. The sleek, metal link watch uses a pattern of abstract blue LEDs to display the time.

MPOW Bluetooth 4.0 Stereo Foldable Headphones Review

MPOW Bluetooth 4.0 Stereo Foldable Headphones Review

If you’re in the market for a pair of Bluetooth headphones, you’ve likely heard about MPOW’s foldable Bluetooth pair. Though no longer a new offering, the headphones have managed to catch the public’s eye over the past year or so and have since found a dedicated fan base hawking the headphones to others. MPOW’s foldable headphones are relatively inexpensive at $30 to $35 (depending on where you get them), and they offer some appealing features like headset functionality and ultra-long battery life. Are they worth getting, though? Read our full review to find out!

Razer Tactical Bag Review: the gear backpack of your dreams

Razer Tactical Bag Review: the gear backpack of your dreams

My review of the Razer Tactical Bag began in January of 2015, about a month and a half ago. The bag was delivered to me right in time for CES 2015 - easily the most action-packed week for me out of the whole year - for tech, that is to say. During the week I carry a lot of weight. In past years, I've brought bags that weren't up to the task. I've had bags whose handles rip partway through the week. I've had bags that didn't end up having nearly enough space or pockets for organization of oddities. The Razer Tactical Bag was up to the task.

EasyAcc 10,000mAh portable battery mini-review

EasyAcc 10,000mAh portable battery mini-review

A portable battery seems like an unnecessary burden until that one time you really need it, then it's worth its weight in gold. Not all external batteries are created equal, however, and investing in the wrong one could mean endless fiddling to make sure it's still charging, trouble getting it to hold a charge, and frustration when it fails in the middle of your weekend getaway. I recently got my hands on EasyAcc's 10,000mAh portable battery, and having been burned (in the non-literal sense) by external batteries in the past, I was skeptical about how it would hold up.

August Connect and August Smart Lock review

August Connect and August Smart Lock review

Your connected home is only complete if it’s secure, and that starts at the front door. Though several cameras and motion sensors plan to tell you if something is going on, there’s no better first step for security than a locked door. There’s also nothing cooler than locking and unlocking your home from a phone, and the peace of mind you get from checking in on your front door from anywhere is comforting. Beautiful enough to reside in the Apple Store, we wanted to know if August was just a pretty face, or a home automation must-have.

The Falcon Backpack mini-Review

The Falcon Backpack mini-Review

When we reviewed the Falcon Northwest TLX gaming laptop, with it came a backpack. Not just any backpack - a custom-made Falcon Northwest backpack designed by the founder of the company Kelt Reeves. This backpack cannot be purchased on its own - it only comes with a TLX or DLX notebook from Falcon Northwest. But that doesn't mean we can't count it amongst the finest tech backpacks we've seen over the past several years.

LG G Watch R Review: best in class

LG G Watch R Review: best in class

With the LG G Watch R here at the start of the year 2015, we've got very little competition in smartwatches. There are several Android Wear watches made by top-tier brands and a few smart watches made by brands we've not ended up sticking with for long. But for now, it's a war with hardware. LG G Watch R's body is unique - not as universally appealing as the stark, cut-back body of the Motorola Moto 360, and not as heavy-hitting as the Samsung Gear S. Instead we've got LG doing what LG does best - making a device that stands out amongst its peers and sits comfortably on your person.
