Intro

What if I told you that you could have a tiny device you can use to control the music, audio books, or podcasts on your iPhone or iPad? Nice, right? No fumbling with on-screen buttons, no limited AirPod controls, no missing the rewind function on your Aftershokz headset. But what if I then told you that this same device can be a remote control for VoiceOver itself? That, without having to touch your screen, you can open and navigate apps, double tap, change the volume, even…

Introduction:

In our ever-expanding world of technology, we have also experienced an ever-expanding need for more cables and, more specifically, USB powered charging devices. And while we're at it, also more of those power bricks that go with our technology to charge it through AC power. Unless, you have something which can charge multiple USB powered devices at once, while also connecting to the wall. The Rock Wall 5-Port USB Charger being sold by

The BOSE Sound Link Revolve+

What is it?
It’s a 360 degree drop proof and water resistant Bluetooth speaker made by BOSE. It stands 18cm in height and 10cm in width at the base. It looks like a cone with a flattened top. Sort of like a Dalek from DR Who.
It is constructed from smooth seamless Aluminium with a silicone top and bottom. Around the sides of the speaker are finely milled sound holes. The speakers come in “Triple Black” or “Lux Grey” which is a posh way of…

I hope to set up my first home brew extracter kit this weekend. It took some time to get my tilt up and running, but it is now water calibrated and ready to go. This is huge for me. Tilt is one of two smart hydrometers that I know of and it's the cheeper of the two. I've got a regular hydrometer here as well. It's just a glass tube like a standard thermometer. Utterly useless to a person who is blind. The tilt sits directly in the fermenter and takes constant readings wich it…

This product is called the Coulax CX04, a comfortable device that you like a necklace with half of the necklace cut off, if you get what I'm saying.
It is a small, round band that fits comfortably on your neck, and the magnetic ear buds stick to its sides so they don't whack you while you are running, doing fitness, etc.
Once you take them out, you fit them right into your ears. If you are not a fan of ear buds this might not be a good choice.
The on/off switch is on the…

They’re here; they’re finally here!

At their event in September, where they presented the iPhone 7, Apple also showcased two tiny earphones they called the AirPods.

Offering a truly wireless experience, these Bluetooth earphones claims to simplify our life by offering a seamless integration to Apple’s other line of products, especially the iPhone 7 without the headphone jack; and no, this does not come with the new iPhones. You have your Lightning headphones and adapter for…

This third-party Apple Watch band currently sells for less than $20, a fraction of the price of Apple's own offering. It is available from Amazon or at . It comes in black and silver, like the Apple one, but it also comes in rose gold. Like the original from Apple, it consists of a single, flexible, lightweight mesh band with a clip at one end and a magnetic tab at the other. A metal clip slides freely along the length of the band. The band is designed so that the metal clip cannot…

This is a case for the ipad mini which comes with a built in Bluetooth keyboard.

The case opens like a book. The top part of the case houses the ipad mini while the bottom of the case is the built in keyboard. The ipad mini sits securely inside the top of the case. All buttons and ports are uncovered and visible. There are two magnets on the bottom of the cradle which allows the ipad to sit upright for typing. The case holds the ipad in landscape mode like a laptop. The case can…

Reviewing the DKnight MagicBox II

A few weeks ago, I was browsing my "Tech Deals" list on Twitter. I read about some bluetooth speaker for $30, then had to re-read the tweet. No, I hadn't read wrong: the speaker was on sale for $30, and normally cost around $130. I'd been wanting a bluetooth speaker anyway, and $100 off was too good to pass up. A few days later, I unpacked my

Introduction

The headset consists of a thick, C-shaped cable worn around the back of the neck, with a slightly thicker control unit on each side of the opening in front. Each control unit contains a button and a slide switch, with the power switch on the right-hand unit. A small magnet…

introduction
This is a review of the jbl reflect aware sports headphones which I received today from amazon.
The first thing to say is that I ordered these from amazon not through the jbl website itself this is because the site isn't very screen reader friendly and I got annoyed fighting with it trying to add them to my shopping cart.

So these are sports headphones I got these hoping that they would be more rugged that previous headphones I have owned which only seem to…

When one looks for a suitable pair of headphones; what does one look for in particular? Of course, the question is highly subjective, but one may come up with general criteria for suitable headphones. They should not be too highly priced, neither should they be too cheap (as we all know what happens to the average run-of-the-mill headphones). They should sound great, comfortable for long wear, preferably wireless but with reasonable battery life. They should surround us with quiet comfort so…

Tired of carrying multiple bulky chargers? Tired of bringing the wrong power brick?

The Zolt charger, voted a Consumer Electronics Product of the year, will solve this for you.

Rather than copying Zolt's info here, you can go to www.gozolt.com to read it all and to buy this great product.

But let me explain, the Zolt is about 3.5 inches long and just over an inch in diameter, but octagonal rather than round. On one end are flip-out…

the Sony mdr-z330bt bluetooth headphones are very good and easy to use. It has a 30 hour battery life, and really nice lows. On the left earpiece, there is nothing to interesting, but on the right, you get a lot of controls

Starting on the top, you get this 3 action button/slider. If you slide it down, this means next song, if you slide it up, then iTunes plays the previous song. If you press it, then it plays the song or answers a call. Yes, these headphones also have microphones…

This is a review of the Kingston mobile lite wireless g3, this is a wireless card reader which can be used to backup and restore information from both ios and android devices, though Obviously I only have experience of use with ios.
So, to describe the device its about the size of a box of matches, very pocketable, it has only one button on it for turning it on and off, on the unit itself there is a slot for a card, it can take both standard and micro sd cards with an adapter included…

This is a review of Apple's wireless magic keyboard.
Let me start off by saying that this keyboard is probably one of the less expensive Apple products out their. it's $99, including tax.
The keyboard can be pared by turning on bluetooth on your mac or iOS device. On the top right of the keyboard is the on/off switch and to the left of that is the lightning port for charging the battery. On the four corners of the back of the keyboard are little pieces of rubber shaped like…

Over the past couple of years, I've had to do a fair amount of traveling for work, and I've also done quite a bit for pleasure. When you travel to more than 15 states a year, it's quite inevitable that you will stay in multiple hotels with multiple kinds of lay-outs. And as I work in a job where technology is one of my primary focuses, I have to take a lot of technology with me from place to place. Not only must I transport it, but I also must keep things either plugged in or charged. Not…
