Stay Charged Up For Your Everyday Adventures

Wednesday, March 19th, 2014 | Author:

nwtcblusbl1mb_heroSo there I was having one of my typical weekends. You know the kind – very Indiana Jones-esque. Anyways, there I am hanging off the side of a cliff looking for treasure and BOOM my rope snaps! Luckily for me not only did I have a good grip, but as I panic keep calm, I remember I have my NewerTech Lightning Cable in my manly explorer man-purse. I tied that bad boy up and my rope was better than new. Also it should be mentioned that I fought off a pack of lions with the cable not but a week later. (Note: Please do not try to hang from your NewerTech Lightning Cable at home… or in a temple.)

Back in reality, I had been doing something just as demanding: pushing my way though the waves and waves of people at SXSW here in Austin. There is one thing that even the most experienced SXSW-goer looks for several times during the day – a place to charge their phone. Sometimes it’s in a crowd of people pushing around a portable charge station. Other times it’s in a socket in a dark alley. Article Continues…

Protect Your iPhone From Expensive Drops with KX, KXs

Monday, March 10th, 2014 | Author:

As we’ve showed you in the past, there are plenty of ways to break your iPhone. Admittedly, some ways are more common than others (most people tend to text while walking slightly more than they breakdance).

So how exactly are people breaking their iPhones? SquareTrade released some statistics on how the devices have been meeting their premature demise over the years. They’ve confirmed our rampant walking-and-texting habit by finding the No. 1 reason to be the iPhone “fell out of my hand”. (We have yet to confirm where “fell out of my wind turbine” ranks.) And 24 percent of owners either had their iPhone fall from their lap or knocked from the table. This is a significant portion of accidents, but these kinds of things just happen.

A separate study by mobileinsurance.co.uk illustrates the top reasons why these broken iPhone screens are often left unfixed:

Just Getting To Know ‘You Don’t Know Jack!’

Saturday, March 8th, 2014 | Author:

YOU-DON’T-KNOW-JACKLarge“You Don’t Know Jack!” Actually that’s a lie, more likely than not, you know quite a bit. But all that becomes rather relative in Jellyvision’s/Jackbox Games’ multiplayer trivia game.

YDKJ for the iPad is the next game in a very long line of games that have been living on the consoles of my generation for a long time. To see a free version of YDKJ for the iPad is amazing. So get ready to be slapped around with some sarcasm, because well… You Don’t Know Jack!

What can I say? I love tongue-in-cheek humor and sarcasm. And Cookie, the game’s host, is never shy about dishing out shovels of it at you. Every answer in the game, right or wrong, has a snarky response that will have you laughing. Article Continues…

Military Tactics Meets Cute ‘N’ Cuddly In RAD Soldiers

Saturday, February 15th, 2014 | Author:

mzl.nkiviokcGuns. Grenades. Knives. What’s the mental picture you’re painting right now? If you’re me, it’s probably something akin to Weird Al Yankovic dressed up as Rambo. Certainly not what you’d expect from what I’m playing in this week’s review.

The game is a tactical “shooter” that has you controlling military units in turn-based missions. The concept appealed to me, so I thought I would give it a go. Brace yourself for RAD Soldiers.

OK, so before we get into the meat of what this game is. I have to tell a personal story. Last night, our Internet wasn’t working at home (100 percent my fault, playing with custom firmware is fun!) and because of such playing, this game was about as easy as winning the Indy 500 while running barefoot. Everything in the game needed Internet access. Want to shop? Go online? Want to get a skin for your soldier? Go online. Oh, look a mystery prize dropped on the map what’s inside? AN ERROR TELLING ME TO GO ONLINE. Introducing the iFrisbee! Article Continues…
