So I picked up my iPad air a few days ago, and the first thing I noticed was how small the box was. I had the chance to play with an iPad 2 the day before, and the box with everything inside felt like it weighed about the same. So what did I find when I opened the box? Simple packaging thank goodness. I felt like a kid with a new toy and I...

Hello Applevis community!

It’s my first review, so I apologize if there are any formatting issues or other inconsistencies. I’ve been browsing the Applevis website but didn’t find much information related to these Braille displays here or on the web, so maybe my experience will be somehow helpful for those who are picking a Braille...

The iphone fits nice and snuggly in to the Boxwave Buddy case so you don't have to worry about it sliding out. The keyboard keys feel nice under the fingers but theey are kind of small. You can feel the buttons well.

The bad things are that the keyboard will double type meaning you have multiple letters. You have to type slowish to...

Introduction For the power user, which I consider myself to be, one of the challenges is keeping all of your devices charged and ready to use. As someone who owns an iPod, iPhone, Macbook Air, and who requires braille support, I demand a lot of power each day. A problem for me is that most power strips are huge in size, or they do not have...

One of the many fun things about being blind is reading about a product and saying to myself, oh that sounds cool, and then thinking, well will I be able to work it. Yes, it’s great to have to think about that last part every time I buy something.

I recently set out to buy a new pair of Bluetooth desktop speakers. I wasn’t sure if I...

Bedphones are very flat, very thin earphones you clip to your ears. They are perfect if you want to sleep and listen to music without headphones falling off, hurting your ears, or without disturbing others in the same room.

Introduction
There are currently 2 models available of this pack, one which has a capacity of 8400 MAH which costs $32.99 and another which boasts a capacity of 14000 MAH which sells for $43.99. Both of these prices were found on Amazon the day this review was written. As I'm a heavy user of electronics, this means I'm also one that goes...

As a totally blind person good sound is something that is incredibly important to me. Over the past couple of years I have spent a large amount of time and money on different speakers and headphones for my IPod touch 4th gen and I phone. As the title of this review hints, I will be reviewing my newly acquired Bose Soundlink Mini.
Lets...
