We grew up using pencils and pens, so when we started using a stylus on our tablets, the feeling wasn’t completely foreign. However, when we could start doodling or doing full-scale artistic pieces on our tablets, we started to care more about the type of stylus we were using. Different responses to pressure, different types of strokes and more all came into play as more options came onto the market.
The idea of tablets being used as a portable media player is not new at all, but then again, neither is it something which is all the craze these days. The tablet market has definitely been on a decline, if slightly, in recent times, and it does not look as though it is going to pick up anytime soon either. This does not mean that there is no money to be made where tablet accessories are concerned, since there is still a sizeable market out there. However, the choice of accessories would certainly come under scrutiny, since there is plenty to look forward to if you are going to kit out your tablet — or iPad in particular, with a speaker case. Yes, you read that right — a speaker case, which is something that does not arrive every other day.
Apple has certainly forged the way forward where new technologies are concerned with the mobile device space. The Lightning port is definitely a new format that did raise its fair share of hue and cry when it was first introduced, although many have come to love and accept it shortly afterwards, despite the fact of purchasing a new set of accessories to go along with it. This time around, we have the folks over at Jackery who have introduced a new 2-in-1 Lightning Power Cable that sports an integrated battery which will cater for various compatible Apple devices.

It will also arrive complete with a removable magnetic polycarbonate 9.7-inch iPad Pro, folio and notepad, making it the ideal create-and-carry solution. The Booqpad for 9.7-inch iPad Pro will sport an asking price of $60 a pop if you are interested in picking one up for yourself.
Purchasing a brand new device would also mean one thing – going all out to make sure that it is well protected from knocks, drops, and accidental scratches. After all, who does not want to be a good steward of things entrusted to us? Griffin has long been in the business of offering protective cases to modern day devices, including the recently released Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. This time around, Griffin has revealed a range of protective cases for the newly announced 9.7-inch iPad Pro and iPhone SE, as these new accessories deliver a wide range of designs which have been tailored to fit various lifestyles while protecting and keeping each device in pristine condition.

This time around, one will find that the more recent two offerings from Satechi, which will be part of its metallic series, will comprise of not one, but two products in the form of the Aluminum Apple Watch Charging Stand and the Lightning Charging Stand.
If you have a smartphone with a camera, you have undoubtedly fiddled with taking pictures of everything from your face to your lunch. Moving just one degree to the right or left will change how the camera adjusts the lighting, making things look blown-out white, like shadow creatures, or in particularly well-lit areas, as if you had an entire lighting crew at your disposal. If you FaceTime with family, coworkers, and friends, your lighting setup may not always be what you would prefer. This is especially the case when you are dealing with different time zones, like my sister and I who have to coordinate California and Japan.
In this day and age, where we are flooded by so many different kinds of mobile devices in our “road warrior arsenal”, it makes perfect sense that we should get organized – any by that, we mean being able to know just which particular device should go with which charger, and on a moment’s notice, we can pack up our bags and bring the respective chargers around when we travel without mixing them up. Back home, however, it is a very different proposition, and having a dedicated charging dock that juices up multiple devices simultaneously is more than welcome. Griffin is no stranger when it comes to charging stations, and this time around, they have revealed the PowerDock Pro. The PowerDock Pro happens to be a five-bay charging system that powers up to five iOS or Android – doing so all at once in order to save time, now how about that? Just in case the PowerDock Pro seems to sound rather familiar to you, that is because it is an update to Griffin’s popularPowerDock 5, where the PowerDock Pro has been redesigned with a sleek new look and enhanced features.
