Modern Dad says the Ring Pro doorbell is worth the bucks!

Logitech Keys-To-Go ultraportable keyboard

Keyboards haven't yet outlived their usefulness, and Logitech continues to make some of the best for adding a little something extra to your iPad.

Here we've got a quick look at the Logitech Keys-To-Go. It's a ridiculously thin keyboard for tablets. The one we have here is technically marketed for Android and Windows — it's got a telltale Windows key as well — but it'll work with iOS, too. (If you just have to have one sans Windows key, there's a more iOS-friendly one available, too.)

There are a couple ways to use this keyboard. The sexier of the two is to already have the tablet propped up somehow (perhaps with Logitech's own propper-upper), and then have the keyboard away from the display in a more comfortable manner. We'll call that "future mode." But given the resolution of tablets these days, you might want it closer. So there's a removable plastic clip that lets you stand the tablet up in the usual position right behind the keyboard.

Adobe gets its docs ducks in a row with Document Cloud

Acrobat DC apps for Android and iOS (and with easy syncing for Windows access)

Adobe may have invented the portable document format — that'd the venerable PDF, boys and girls — but for whatever reason its "Acrobat" suite never really had much to do with consumers, and even for biz types it often was easier just to print, sign, scan and send. That ends today with the announcement of Document Cloud, which brings forth Google Drive-like syncing capabilities and the mobile document power we've seen from Samsung.

HTC and Under Armour announce iOS-compatible Grip fitness tracker

We've patiently been awaiting the first wearable from smartphone (and tablet) manufacturer HTC. Today, we've got it — and it supports the iPhone.

The HTC Grip is a GPS-capable fitness tracker that's in the same sort of category as the Microsoft Band and entries from Fitbit or Jawbone. (A watch, folks, will have to wait, apparently, though it's not like we didn't see this one coming.) It connects to phones running Android 4.3 and up, and iOS 7 and up, and syncs with Under Armour's UA Record application, which just gained millions of more users after UA purchased My Fitness Pal and Endomondo.

FAA proposes new rules for small unmanned aircraft

The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) today is publishing new proposed rules for "small unmanned aircraft systems" — commonly (but not entirely accurately) referred to as "drones" — that would require an operator certificate and the user to be at least 17 years old. The proposed rules also would dictate when and where and how such "unmanned aerial systems," such as (but not limited to) the type controlled by iPhones and iPads could be flown:
