Joby strengthens its grip on the device stand market

griptight-mountYou can more or less say with plenty of confidence that a selfie is something which just about everyone snaps without giving too much thought about it, so much so that there is a booming market of selfie sticks. The thing is, selfie sticks are great if you would like to enjoy a less personal look, but they are not too good at capturing moments from truly interesting angles. Joby has a stranglehold (pardon the pun) on the device stand market, and this time around they intend to expand their top selling collection of portable GripTight device stands that will cater for a slew of hugely popular smaller-sized tablets, and it does not matter whether they come with or without protective cases. Among the tablets that will play nice with Joby’s latest offering would be the iPad mini, Nexus 7, Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 7.0, Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact, Kindle Fire HD 7 and Nook HD models.

iPad Air 2 gets its very own LifeProof NUUD case

ipadair2-nuudHow was your Memorial Day weekend? Was it as blissful as expected, and I would like to think that this is the ideal time off to take when it comes to sweating it out in the great outdoors. After all, we have more or less spent enough time at the office, don’t you think so, that breathing in some much needed fresh air would be rather nice. Well, if you are going to be out in the wild, perhaps making sure that your devices are also well protected would be a prudent idea, which is why folks who tote around an iPad Air 2 (all the more if you happen to carry this 24kt gold-plated iPad Air!)would do well to pick up the LifeProof NUUD case.

I remember the first time I was introduced to a microscope, I was instantly intrigued, and wanted to “magnify” absolutely everything I could get my hands on. Some of it was spectacular, other things? Well, let’s just say I will never be able to un-see them. But all in all, the ability to see the world around me in such detail was wondrous, and something everyone should be able to experience, and the Dotlens may just be the gadget that brings that experience home.

The Microsoft Universal Folding Keyboard is tiny and mighty

Microsoft Universal Foldable Keyboard

While some don’t mind losing the tactile feeling of typing on a touchscreen tablet or phone, it’s difficult for others. You can’t type as quickly because your fingers can’t feel the keys or spacing between them. If you travel often and don’t want to always be forced to carry a laptop around, then having a Bluetooth keyboard handy can make all the difference. It can be whipped out at a moment’s notice, and often has a longer battery life than your laptop.
