Anyone else experience a “very sleepy” iPhone after installing iOS 11? I’ve encountered at least three times that my iPhone 7 doesn’t want to wake up right away. It’s usually after I put my phone to sleep then try to wake it immediately. The screen stays black. I know the iPhone is still on since […]

Obviously I suck at this new Pokemon Go game, I’m stuck at this splash screen.
I guess it’s not a well kept secret that Apple is about to announce a new iPhone model. The supposedly small form factor SE model already has cases ready for review.
I surely can’t afford a Tesla electric vehicle as a holiday gift, but I can afford to gift a Tesla-branded iPhone case. These are made out of remnant leather pieces that are used in actual Telsas and go for $45. But then again, I wonder if these are like those license plate frames that say […]
Ahead of the formal announcment of the latest iPhones, the rumored iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, protective cases are already available for sale. Spigen is advertising their pre-release selection on Amazon and at a reduced price. I don’t get how this is happening, but hey, Spigen is based out of Irvine, CA so all is […]
Like me, you may have heard of Apple’s CarPlay “system” that links your iPhone with your vehicle but never saw CarPlay in action. Today, I got a first hand look at CarPlay via the Alpine iLX-007 in-dash receiver. An aftermarket car stereo replacement, the iLX is CarPlay personified. Connecting your iPhone to the iLX brings up the familiar iOS screen […]
Yes, there are now two official apps for sneakers. Adidas used their Confirmed app to secure a pair of Yeezys, and not to be outdone, Nike launches their SNKRS app today. Right now, it looks like full functionality of the app isn’t yet unleashed. You can see mobile versions of Nike’s public launch calendar or […]
I’ll be honest. This gift is actually for myself and won’t be available until February 2015. But when you tout your product as the “perfect keyboard for the iPhone,” the wait is worthwhile for the Next Keyboard. Slide on the space bar to move the cursor? Genius. My personal favorite, no confusing shift keys. Swipe […]
Getting a case for your iPhone is a somewhat complicated choice. Protection, weight, looks, feel, cost – there are so many variables to consider before making your pick. For example, take this awesome looking iPhone 6 case constructed out of carbon fiber. Made by Carbon Trim Solutions, this case is stylish in gloss or matte […]
It’s been barely one week using my new iPhone 6, but here are a few more observations. Does it bend? Seriously, what? Why is #bendgate even a thing? Um, how about not sitting on your phone to begin with. And if you had a plastic encased phone, I’m guessing the phone would crack. At least […]
Oh my fickleness for iPhone cases. Here I was set on getting a Spigen Neo Hybrid Metal case for my new iPhone 6. But then I heard that while the fit was fine, there was a minor discrepancy with the clickiness of the volume buttons. Nothing major, but I guess a last minute adjustment for […]
After a few days using my iPhone 6, here are a few observations and thoughts. I went with the 4.7-in screen iPhone 6, wary of the large 5.5 iPhone 6+, but I did succumb and maxed out memory. It’s thin. Very thin. That’s the very first thing you notice when you pick up the phone. […]
