The Smart Beetle is a 14-cell display manufactured by HIMS.

However, it supports the ability to connect to 6 different devices, and is natively supported in iOS 9 and El Capitan. Note that the 6...

As someone who is on a budget and who found that the Mophie iPhone 6 case was too snug of a fit for my phone, I was looking for something cheaper and that would also work better with my 6S. This, for the most...

I had tried a LifeProof case with a previous model and did not particularly like it.

Let me start by saying I owned the original ERA and I loved it, it was the smallest BT headset at the time and it is still one of the smallest, but the new ERA 2 takes it to another level.

It has only 1 button and an on and off switch which is...

Ever since the last significant drop in my hearing, I've found it more and more challenging to rely on said hearing to carry out such tasks as using a screen reader, knowing when water is boiling, and the topic of this review: waking up in the morning.

Bem Wireless Speaker Band was presented at CES 2014 in Las Vegas, this accessory is a wearable Bluetooth speaker.

It is a really useful gadget for blind people, as it does not force anyone to wear headphones while walking on the road, with the White cane in hand or holding dog's guide; you finally can have hands and ears free!
