Tstand Review: a reimagining of tablet holding

Tstand Review: a reimagining of tablet holding

This week we've been working with the Tstand, a tablet holder that'll allow you to use your tablet without cranking your neck or your knees. It's big. There's no denying that this stand isn't going to fit into your standard iPad sleeve - but at W 9.5” x L 10.25” x H 2.25 it's also not so large that it won't fit into your 13-inch notebook sleeve. The version we're working with is made mainly of ABS plastic, with silicone rubber bumpers to hold the tablet in place. This stand may look strange, but it might also be the tablet companion you didn't know you needed.

Revols Bluetooth earphones promise a custom fit for every ear

Many say that no one size fits all, and yet when it comes to earphones that is exactly what happens. Our ears, however, are as unique as our fingerprints (CSI anyone?), making generic shaped earbuds uncomfortable and unstable. What if there was a way to make your earphones conform to your unique ear? Well, now there is one. At least that's what the Revols Kickstarter is promising. And judging by how it zoomed past its funding goal in less than 7 hours, it's a promise many people are willing to invest in.

Audi, TOMS give TRAVELER sunglasses for Season of Audi purchases

Last June, car maker Audi and shoe and eyewear maker TOMS partnered to give out a free pair of shoes for every one who buys an Audi car during the Summer of Audi promotional season.

TarDisk Pear uses your MacBook’s SD card slot to create a Fusion Drive

What happens when you run out of space on your hard drive? Sure, you can start purging old files and unneeded programs, but that will only get you so far. The other option is to add a second drive, or simply replace it. Replacing an entire drive can be a lot of work, what with copying everything over, and getting your computer set back up the way you like it, and few laptops allow a second drive. Well, if you're a MacBook owner, there's a new option at your disposal.

Satechi USB Type-C hub has (almost) all the ports you need

Satechi USB Type-C hub has (almost) all the ports you need

The finalization of USB Type-C was welcomed by many. Hooray for reversible USB plugs! Their adoption by big tech giants, particularly by Apple and later by Google, was similarly praised. There is, however, one wrinkle in that otherwise lofty plan. Accessory makers aren't able to adapt fast enough, still stuck with USB Type A and micro USBs because of their more widespread use. Luckily, adapters are here to rescue the day. Like Satechi's new Type-C USB 3.0 3-in-1 Combo Hub that lets you connect almost all your peripherals in style.
