Speck CandyShell Grip, Get Your Gaming On

Speck 2

Let’s talk candy, not Candy Crush (I will block you) but CandyShell Grip from Speck. Speck a company I’ve come to love has come a long way since first starting in the smartphone industry. Speck has delivered many different styles of cases over the years like the CandyShell series, SmartFlex series, Pixelskin series and Fabshell series.

My favorite case of Speck’s at the moment is their CandyShell Grip series. If you’re a big time gamer and want great protection you’ll find the CandyShell Grip will handle your needs.

Since being introduced to the CandeyShell Grip, it’s been hard for me to use other cases. For starters, the rubber grip structure eliminates the slipperiness helping prevent you from dropping your phone. Not to mention the case has all-around protection from a raised bezel which keeps your screen safe and it also has rubberized cover shield buttons.

Review: AfterShokz Sportz M2

AfterShokz-Sportz-M2

At first glance, one would think these are some very strange looking headphones. AfterShokz Sportz M2 headphones are not your traditional headphones you would find in the store, they are open ear headphones that use bone conduction technology to transfer stereophonic sound via vibrations on your cheekbones to the inner ear.

I was first introduced to AfterShokz at CES 2012. They had a very impressive product, and I could tell they were off to a good start. Well, CES 2o13 rolled around and AfterShokz was back with a bigger and more impressive booth. They had revamped their product line and made some great improvements.

AfterShokz sent me a set of the Sportz M2 headphones to review, and it has been a pure pleasure to be using these headphones. Keep on reading to see what I thought about them.

Possible Sync Cable For The New iPhone

Veister, a company that specializes in USB cables tweeted a photo of what looks to be the sync cable for the next generation of iOS devices from Apple. With Apple’s announcement less than a month away we have already seen pictures of an 8-pin dock connector and 4-inch display which all tie into Apple’s new iPhone.

As always we don’t believe anything until Tim Cook says it is so. But even if this is just concept based off the leaked iPhone parts it is still interesting to see. I sure hope Apple has made more than enough dock adapters.
