Logitech Combo Touch

Read More

Want to turn your iPad Pro into a laptop, but don’t want to spend the $350 Apple wants for the Magic Keyboard? Spend $100 less and get the Combo Touch instead… It’s not as trick looking, but it works better in almost every way.

TAU Power Bank

Read More

I got one of these sent to me blindly – no note, no explanation, no request, no nothing… Hell, at first I didn’t know what it was. A hard drive? A stash pod? Eventually, I figured out it was a tiny power bank for your keychain that provides 1400 mAh of power on the go. It’s also built really well… Pretty rad.

Leica SL2-S

God, I hate Leica. No really… I do… The modern version of it anyway. But the thing is, I have a collection of vintage Leica lenses that I really want to shoot digital with. My Sony A7 body is a fantastic video/photo hybrid, but my old lenses just don’t shine through it. And I’ve tried various Digital M-bodies, but the value just isn’t there as I can’t afford both a still and a film setup… especially with the $8k price tag of an M10.

Enter the SL2-S. It’s $5,000. BUT, it’s a fantastic video platform and was literally made to shoot vintage glass.

Man… I hate Leica.

P.S. Just the battery is $300!

I’ve got no use for an electric bicycle thing… but if I did? Oh man… This thing is rad.

The thinnest iPhone case that actually offers some protection is available for iPhone 12/MagSafe now… I’ve never broken a phone with these cases, but others have.

Magic Keyboard With Touch ID

Read More

I am not an Apple Keyboard guy… Chicklet style keyboards in general hurt my hands during long sessions. However if you don’t mind them, this has been a long time coming – essentially, it’s your standard Apple keyboard with Touch ID built in. Odd that it has taken Apple so long to integrate this.

oriGrid

I’ve become an iPad power user somehow… In fact, I work more on my 12.9” 2018 iPad Pro than I do on my MacBook Pro. And this detachable grid system? It’s brilliant.

GoFish Cam

It’s a camera that you fix to your finishing line… allowing you to see the action from below. I don’t fish really, but this is rad…
