These Kickstarters want to fix the biggest complaint about the new Retina MacBook

The Retina MacBook is a remarkable piece of engineering, but the 12-inch ultra-slim computer does have one feature that’ll annoy many computer users: The single USB-C port that’s supposed to be used for both charging the battery and connecting peripherals. However, you won’t be able to do all these things at once without purchasing additional accessories. Apple already stocks a few models, but you might be better off looking at Kickstarter for a better solution, as there already are some products looking to fix the USB-C problem. More →

Duracell Wireless Charging Ring Announced

Duracell unveils the stupidest product we’ve seen since Sony’s ‘premium sound’ memory card

Duracell unveils the stupidest product we’ve seen since Sony’s ‘premium sound’ memory card

Hey, would you like to get wireless charging capabilities on your phone even though it’s not equipped to handle wireless charging? Then don’t worry — Duracell has a less-than-amazing new accessory for you! Thanks to Android Police for directing our attention to Duracell’s new charging accessory that it claims delivers “wireless charging.” In reality, the charging pad just replaces wires with a charging ring that you have to plug your phone into and isn’t anything close to the kind of wireless charging capabilities you can get with the Samsung Galaxy S6.

Meet Zero G, the only iPhone 6 case that can defy gravity

There are plenty of interesting iPhone 6 cases to choose from if you’re looking to protect your handset against accidental drops, but the Zero G is something else, as it packs a brilliant new feature. The case, currently seeking funding on Kickstarter, doesn’t just wrap around the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus for added shock resistance — it also sticks to tables or even vertical surfaces, seemingly defying gravity in the process.

Meet the tiny device that solves all your on-the-go smartphone needs

If you’re a smartphone power user, you probably have lots of accessories that can do things like share files between devices, charge dying batteries, deliver external storage, or sync it with a computer. But most accessories we know of can’t offer all these features at the same time, which is where the new On The Go gadget might come in handy. More →

Connecting my life: The $50 gadget that transformed my iPhone

Connecting my life: The $50 gadget that transformed my iPhone

By on April 14, 2015 at 9:45 AM.

Apple’s latest iPhone 6 is a fantastic device that is packed full of technology. I carry one as my main phone for personal use and for work, and I have precious few complaints when it comes to functionality that the phone lacks. After all, Apple can only stuff so much into that remarkably slender 6.9 millimeter-thick case.

There are a few things rival smartphones can do that I wish my iPhone could manage as well, though. But as of today, that list has one fewer line item. More →

Don’t freak out about Galaxy S6’s lack of microSD support – here’s what you can do about it

One of the issues with the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge is related to storage. Both phones come with at least 32GB of storage, but it can’t be expanded by the user using microSD cards. However, if you’re still worry about storage on smartphones even if you plan to purchase 64GB of 128GB versions, you should know there are ways to add more memory to the phones. Geek.com has put together a nifty list of accessories that offer users access to more portable storage on the Galaxy S6 models. More →

iPhone 6 Cases

Every gorgeous iPhone 6 case we’ve ever recommended – plus 4 new ones

Every gorgeous iPhone 6 case we’ve ever recommended – plus 4 new ones

By on April 3, 2015 at 9:59 AM.

Ahh, the necessary evil that is the iPhone 6 case. What a shame, covering up all of Apple’s fantastic design work. Of course, it’s that very design that is at the root of the problem; Apple’s slick aluminum housing on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus practically guarantee that users will drop their iPhones at some point.

Of course, covering up the iPhone 6 with a cheap, ugly case simply isn’t an option, which is why BGR spends plenty of time hunting down the best iPhone cases out there for our readers to enjoy.

We have covered a number of great iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus case options over the past six months, and now it’s time to compile them all into one massive list. We’re also going to toss in a few new cases for readers to check out that have never been seen before on the site. More →
