This is one of the most handy things I use with my iPhone. It is a very small braille display, perfect for mobile privacy. Unlike the other popular mini display at the time (the braille pen 12) this device has routing buttons, something I believe to be necesary. It also has a five-function "joystick" that enables quick use of the functions like swipe right, left, up, down, and double tap. Therefore, navigation is simple. Six-key entry is nice as well, although sometimes (I believe this is the…

AirStash looks like a normal pendrive: rectangular shape, with a cover that must be removed from the bottom side, to reveal the USB connector, and inserted again if USB is not used. In the middle there is the button, the unique button, used to turn wi-fi mode on and off. The top side has a slot for a normal SD card, it supports classic SD cards up to 32GB, and if a micro-SD is used, the small card must be inserted into its adapter, to turn it into a SD, before inserting it into the airstash;…

The Line6 Mobile In Continues the jaw dropping concept of all this? from your pocket? though it's outer casing is made of plastic, it feels pretty stirty. About the size and feel of a Compact Flash CF Card Case, it has two 8th inch input jacks: (Stereo Line in, and instrument level) on the front, and a doc connector on the rear. It's long enough to plug into a device even in an otterbox style case. It comes with a cable which converts from 8th inch to quarter inch, which is good, because I…

This charger is pretty simple and easy to use. Its a 5600mah and I found that I could fully charge my iPhone three times before having to recharge the Ravpower. It also comes with a variety of different plugs to use with other phones. They also included two usb cables of different sizes so you don't have to worry if you lose one cable, you will have an extra backup. Another neat feature is the built in flashlight which actually has some good strength and projection. And lastly I found that it…

The PowerGen External Battery Pack is not an iOS device specific charger, which can be viewed as a draw-back or an advantage. The battery pack was designed to essentially charge anything that has the ability to charge via USB. It comes with a multitude of adapters for plugging in to such devices as an iOS product, any number of Android devices, GPS Receivers, and just about anything else you can charge via USB. While the documentation is not available digitally, which is the reason it gets 4…

If you're looking for a durable case for your iPhone 4 or 4S which would also keep the screen shielded even at the time of use, look nowhere else. The Griffin Survivor Case for iPhone 4 and 4S provides the best type of device protection without sacrificing usability. As one Amazon reviewer says:

Not completely waterproof, definitely water resistant. The iPhone sits inside a virtually fully enclosed plastic…

The IHome IA100 is the flagship unit in IHome's new linf of app-enhanced devices. This means that all dock settings can be controlled and adjusted with apps on an IOS device. The IA100 is universal, meaning that it supports IPhone, IPod Touch, and IPad devices. I am sure IPad 3 support is coming in a future firmware release. This dock features Bluetooth capabilities that allow you to listen to music, as well as make and receive calls. This is in addition to the built-in dock for IOS devices.…

When I travel I have been using the New Trent Battery to keep my iPhone and other USB powered devices charged up. It has two USB ports so I can charge my iPhone and my Bluetooth headset at the same time. The battery is about the size of the iPhone 4, and turns on with the press of a button. If nothing is connected or the charge cycle is done the battery will turn off automatically. I found this product works quite well and I don’t have to replace my case or make my iPhone overly thick. I got my…

a very small and comfortable headset. It has one single button, with the following functionalities: 1. a very long press turns the jabra stone 2 on or off. It has all English-spoken audible messages. 2. when on, a short press tells the battery status: high, medium, low. 3. a short press while the phone is ringing: answers the current call 4. a short press during a call: ends the call. the voice will say, call ended. 5. 2 fast short presses while the phone is not in a call: the headset says "…

Visually impaired people are often used to have several devices at home or office: smartphones, computers, Braille display, USB rechargeable devices, and so on. This means that the house and office, is full of electric or USB cables for charging batteries, with the mess they can cause! Many cables in the same place, with even the risk of falling on them! A small Italian company, called Feligan, has solved the problem: a unique solution for all devices! Power Brick. This accessory can charge…

We have all heard about extended battery cases for IOS devices. I first heard about this one last year when I was beta testing IOS5 and was having battery life problems. I had heard about this case's little brother, the Mophi Juice Pack Air, but was not interested due to its smaller capacity and the fact that it did not fully charge your phone. This one's price is slightly higher at $99 when I bought it. However, I could not be happier. This case has extended the battery life of my phone by as…

This review is about the third generation model of the Apple Wireless Keyboard. The keyboard itself is very thin. It needs two AA batteries which you slot into it from the left side on the back of the keyboard. On the opposite (right) side is a round button. The keyboard width nicely resembles approximately a 40 cell braille display, which makes it a perfect match for use with a Handy Tech Braille Star 40 for instance. The keys feel very nice during typing, and are quite large. In fact, I am…

The Handy Tech Braille Star 40 is a portable, rechargeable 40 cell braille display with serial, USB and Bluetooth connectivity.  Its physical dimensions are 331 x 227 x 24 mm (width x depth x height).  The tactile surface of the Braille elements are concavely shaped.  Each cell has exactly one cursor routing key located above.  Below the cells you find 8 braille dot keys separated by two space keys.  To the left and right of the reading area are the so-called tripple action keys which you…

As advertised on the web, the Apple TV comes with VoiceOver. Enabling VoiceOver on the Apple TV without sighted assistance is easy: Connect the device via HDMI to your TV or AV-Receiver.  Make sure the appropriate port is choosen on your TV or AV-Receiver so that you can hear audio coming from it once its booted.  Then connect the power to the Apple TV and wait for it to boot.

Once its finished it will announce to you that you are supposed to press the lower right button three…

So I purchased this keyboard last year for my iPod Touch because I did not want to mess with typing on the touch screen. I find that I use this device on all of my iOS devices including my iPhone, iPad, my Mac Mini and of course my iPod Touch. The keyboard is relatively comfortable to use whether on a tabletop or on your lap and it is not too small to type on and not big and bulky either. I paid $69 for it but they have come out with a newer one so I would suggest looking in to that one. This…

I've only tested the Focus 40 Blue braille display from Freedom Scientific on an iPhone 4. Almost all on-screen gestures have key combinations to execute the same commands on the braille display. Though the display's keys are rather noisy, the display is very responsive. I find that I have to retype braille more often than I have had to with other displays. However, the display is light and compact. The display is comfortable to use, and the braille is crisp. I would advise purchasing an…

I thought that I would help to kick things off in this new area of the site by giving a quick review of the Seidio Rugged case for the iPhone 4

When the iPhone 4 was first released there weren't too many cases available, and fewer still that matched my 'must have' feature of having some form of belt clip. Things were further complicated because there are times when I want to just slip the phone into a pocket. It looked like I would end up with 2 cases, one slim enough to fit in a…

Ok, the following is a review of the Plantronics Voyager Pro HD which is the latest version of the Voyager pro series.

First, the headset feels and looks almost exactly like the previous versions of the Voyager pro. The headset has the large behind the ear portion with the buttons and battery housed in this section.  A loop covers the ear with a boom microphone that swings down and an insert with difference sized inserts for the ear.  Buttons are in the same position with the…
