budget_iphone_leak_colorsWhen the first colorful shells for the so-called budget iPhone first started leaking, they seemed like they were probably fake.

It’s pricy, though: $20 will get you the 30 pin model, but if you have an iPhone or iPad with a Lightning connector, it’ll […]

Giant Braven 850 Speaker Blasts Music Alone Or In Pairs

The little drilled aluminum Braven 650 is one of my favorite portable Bluetooth speakers – it’s small, it’s light and tough and it sounds great.
