Now that Apple has released iOS 8 on the eve of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus hitting Future Shop shelves, the new update to the operating system is less the interface coat of paint that iOS 7 was, and more a pack of features that bring it up to speed with what competitors are doing, along with a twist here and there. It’s free to download and is compatible with iPhone 4S (and later), the iPad 2 (and later), both iPad minis and the fifth-generation iPod touch.
Retrofitting your home’s lighting is perhaps the least invasive form of renovation available to you, and your Wi-Fi network is one of the biggest reasons why. Philips Hue is a family of LED lights that can turn any of 16 million colours, adding more than just hues and shades, but entirely different settings, moods and ambience to any room. While I’ve looked at the Hue Starter Kit, Bloom and LightStrips already, the Iris and Lux are two more unique members to add to the list.
Normally, when I — or any other of my colleagues — are asked to review a product (tablet accessory or other) it usually bears a name that doesn’t really explain what it does (think Pebble, mophie, etc.). This couldn’t be further from the truth with the LifeProof line of iPad cases for the Air and Mini.
So what does “LifeProof” really mean? Does it imply that the product is exempt from death and taxes? Maybe it can avoid dinner with the in-laws? Close, but not quite. In this instance, owning a LifeProof case means you can have an unequivocal safety net cast over your Apple iPad. You can use it without worrying that the next accidental drop, spillage of liquid, or playground sand is going to mean replacing the device.
Let’s dive into the two types of LifeProof cases, the Nuud (pronounced ‘nude’) and Fre (pronounced ‘free’), and compare their screen protection, aesthetics and usability.
When Parrot first unveiled the Jumping Sumo at CES back in January, it used a small toy basketball net to illustrate the fun you could have in making this roving drone jump. Rolling around on two wide wheels, while controlled via the free FreeFlight 3 app on iOS and Android, the Jumping Sumo is a remote-controlled gizmo that is sometimes hard to define, yet easy to enjoy because of what it does. After spending time with it myself, I got a better sense of the pros and cons of such a unique toy.
Not many student dorms or residences come with cable TV. After all, you’re there to learn, not to chill out with Robert Downey Jr. But these days a lot of dorms come with WiFi, which means you can get yourself a TV streaming device, and watch TV or movies whenever you want, in the privacy of your (tiny) room. Check out the Top 3 streaming devices available.
Look at one of Apple’s MacBooks today and you will see something that looks familiar, yet uniquely different at the same time. The MacBook line has gone through several evolutionary changes over the last eight years, having also gone from three particular designs, down to two: the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro. Both follow the same design philosophies, though feel distinct at the same time. Based on my years of experience with both, I can tell you why.
Apple's notebooks and desktops are seeing increasing levels of popularity as well as adoption into the educational market. Their build-quality, reputation for security, and general durability and ease of use, make them ideal devices for students and teachers in many universities and disciplines. Let's take a look at the strengths and ideal use cases for Apple's current line of notebooks and desktops geared for back to school.
Finding a good laptop requires research and maybe even a little sleuthing, but what might be ideal for someone else may not be the best fit for what you need. The bevy of choices doesn’t simplify the process all that much, so narrowing things down does help make a more concerted effort to spend money on something that is ultimately an investment.
In the previous post, I ran through some laptops that I thought would be good starting points for students, breaking them down into various categories. Of course, that was my opinion to the best of my knowledge. You, the readers and customers, have made your opinions known through feedback provided on the site.
As the title suggests, the weeks leading back to the start of a new school year might require you looking into a smartphone that will help you over the next eight to 12 months. Now, the “best” doesn’t necessarily mean the best on the market, but rather the best for what you need. You may be a student on a budget, or your needs might not be particularly complex, and that’s why the list in this post is focused more on bang for the buck.
If you’ve ever spent an afternoon surfing the App Store, you know there's a plethora of apps out there for the home theatre lover. So how do you choose? Which ones should take up gigs on your already full phone or tablet? Right this way ...
Robots have always been cool, no matter what form or medium you find them in, and the Sphero is no exception. It’s equal parts functional, colourful and cute wrapped up in the form of a ball — a ball that you can control with your iOS or Android smartphone (plus iPad and iPod Touch) via Bluetooth. The first one introduced consumers to the concept, but the new Sphero 2.0 has been designed to be better in all respects, from its weight and noise, right down to how seamlessly it works. We took it for a good test run to see how it performed.
The idea of a fitness instrument that you don't have to think too much about is easy to like. It’s even easier when it comes with a built-in source of motivation.
Enter the Striiv Play Smart Pedometer, a fitness tracker module that pairs with your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch to measure all the steps you take when walking, running, going up and down stairs, plus the elapsed time, distance traveled and calories you lost.
