For those who don’t have the patience to read this post all the way through, let’s get the bottom line out of the way. The TLDR of it is this: The Marshall Major III Bluetooth is perhaps one of the best sounding on-ear bluetooth headphones in its price range that I’ve ever tried. It may not be as affordable as your common garden variety headphones, but it most certainly wasn’t designed and created to be such.Read more

Summer means lots of getaways and fun trips outdoors. And since we usually travel with friends and family, what better way to make our out-of-town adventures more fun than by bringing along some of our awesome gadgets. Whether it’s a high-capacity power bank that keeps our mobile devices juiced up or cool Bluetooth speakers to keep us company by the beach, it’s always great to have these things along.
With that in mind, Digits Trading has recently unveiled some of their newest tech accessories to make our summer escapades, parties and staycations even cooler (or hotter!) Haha!
I was there when Digits Trading made the big reveal and… well… being a geek myself, I could help but become giddy with all the cool gadgets they unveiled.
Hello, my dear readers. Are you currently mulling over the idea of getting a new laptop, either for yourself or for a loved one? Dreaming of finally having that beautiful Apple MacBook Air? Well, it seems that there is no better time than now to turn your dream into reality.
Take advantage of Beyond the Box’s MacBook Air Lifestyle Bundles!
Starting September 1st, the MacBook Air 11″ & 13″ 128GB variants will be available in super easy Zero24 installments and will be offered with three unique lifestyle bundles at NO EXTRA COST. That’s right!
Hey, let’s face it… The MacBook Air is arguably the most beautiful laptop one can own, wouldn’t you agree? Just imagine – the MacBook Air’s aluminum unibody design exudes a modernly elegant and minimalist appearance. The tapering edges also make the laptop genuinely attractive and impressive.
Measuring 17mm in diameter and weighing at 1.4kg, the MacBook Air is gorgeously thin and incredibly light. Just how light, you may ask? Light enough to make it barely noticeable in your bag, yet robust enough that it doesn’t feel like it’s going to break when you use it.
Whether you’ve never had one or planning to retire your old MacBook, you will no doubt get the most out of your new MacBook Air lifestyle with Beyond the Box’s MacBook Air Lifestyle Bundles.
Music. It motivates people with active lifestyles to push further and train harder.
It guides your rhythm. It keeps you company.
That’s why I absolutely make sure to have music with me every single day I go out to train… whether lifting weights at the gym or doing a couple of laps outdoors.
This is why having a good music streaming service, reliable mobile data and a dependable set of earphones are absolute musts for me.
While I’m pretty much an avid fan of Spotify and have never had the need to switch to a different service, my set of earphones are a totally different story. I’m constantly on the lookout for better ones that can keep up with my kind of lifestyle – a pair that doesn’t get in the way of my physical activities, yet doesn’t mind getting soaked by the intense sweat of my training.
Right now, I am currently trying out the BlueAnt Pump Mini.
The BlueAnt Pump Mini is a sturdy pair of bluetooth earphones that promises 6 hours of play time on a mere 1 hour charge. And though, I haven’t really worked up the battery of this baby enough to see if it does last that long, using it for 2-3 hours at a time during long hauls and intermittent training proves its power to be very promising.
Who doesn’t love protective cases? Apart from a case’s main purpose of keeping your device unharmed from nicks and bumps, it also gives your phone some much needed character.
A case’s design is a statement. It also tells a lot about you and your individuality. And hey, admit it… we are all about standing out and being unique, right?
That being said, I’m featuring a brand that is known to produce beautifully sleek and very functional protective cases for various smartphones and tablets – Urban Armor Gear (UAG for short).
And since I can’t showcase all their cases in one fell swoop (because they’ve got lots!), lemme start with just one for now… their “Maverick” for the iPhone 6.
Since I love the sleek clean look of my iPhone 6, it was a no-brainer that I’d be partial to the Maverick’s “clear” variant. That way, I get the best of both worlds – beauty and functionality.
Yes, I admit. I love collecting phone cases – all kinds and all brands.
And now that I’ve upgraded to the iPhone 6, I have started collecting protective cases once again to keep my device safe and looking good at the same time.
Since protection is of utmost priority when looking for a good case, naturally, I went for the more reputable brands which have long been proven to keep smartphones safe from high impact mishaps.
First on my list – Tech21.
Tech21 has always been one of my trusted brands when it comes to protective cases. In fact, I still have roughly 6-7 Tech21 cases here at home for my iPhone 5S. Thankfully, my kids use iPhone 5S units so they automatically become the happy beneficiaries of my phone upgrade.
One of the very first protective cases I got for my new device…
I’m pretty sure a good number of you guys scrambled for the new iPhone 6 (or 6 Plus) during the Christmas season. Whether you got it as a gift or you got it as a present to yourself, every iPhone owner knows what comes after setting up your awesome device…
It’s time to go shopping for some awesome iPhone 6 cases! Yeah!
We all know that there are vast selections of iPhone 6 protective cases out in the market. And if you know better, fake cases just won’t cut it. They may be dirt cheap, but these imitations will do nothing to actually protect your newest Apple device from drops and bumps.
If you truly value your iPhone 6, investing in top quality cases is an absolute must. Besides, why wrap your expensive phone in cheap garb? It’ll cost more (and inconvenience you) in the long run when you accidentally damage your iPhone.
So, if you agree with me, read on because I’ve got a really amazing iPhone 6 protective case recommendation for your precious device.
Let me be the first to say it in case you felt the same way, Airdrop sucks balls every so often. It’s faulty and it isn’t reliable. It’s great when it works but it’s such a pain when it doesn’t. And boy does it falter quite often.
I sometimes take countless minutes trying to detect my other devices via Airdrop when it should be practically instantaneous. Sometimes, sending files via email end up being faster, albeit more tedious.
In my quest to search for faster (and more reliable) means to transfer files from one device to another, I stumbled upon a really nifty gadget.
It’s called the PhotoFast i-FlashDrive HD.
The little speaker that could.
That’s how I would probably describe the Carbon Audio Pocket Speaker.
You’d think that something that can easily fit inside your shirt pocket cannot possibly produce sound so rich and full. Not to mention, loud.
You’ll notice immediately when you open the Carbon Audio Pocket Speaker that its design is far from other typical Bluetooth speakers in the same category. For one, this device sports a set of speakers on both sides of its body (front and rear) giving it what Carbon Audio calls “360-degree sound”.
There are iPad Mini cases and there are iPad Mini cases… the selection is so vast and so wide that you somehow can’t seem to tell which one is the good choice. But every so often, a unique case comes along that actually stands out because of its combined beauty and functionality.
And the Gripster Wrap by Native Union, in my opinion, is one among a very select few worthy of that recognition.
Why? Because the Gripster Wrap’s beauty is simple and its features aren’t novelty at all.
