SteelSeries Stratus MFi game controller for iOS review

Support for MFi (Made for iPhone/iPad/iPod touch) game controllers came with last fall's introduction of iOS 7. Some products have focused specifically on the iPhone and iPod touch market with devices that clamp on to the iPhone. SteelSeries is taking a different tack with its Stratus game controller, a standalone device that works with iPads too. It was introduced for $99, but SteelSeries has since cut the price to $79.99. The Stratus is available either in black or white.

LandingZone Dock for MacBook Pro review

I love to be able to take my 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro with me when I hit the road, but when I'm in the office, I prefer to have it connected to other devices like an external display, Time Machine backup, speakers, and other peripherals. Connecting all those cables produces a lot of sideways sprawl and cable ugliness. Infiniwing's LandingZone Dock for MacBook Pro cleans all that up and provides a secure place to keep it, besides.

Wacom Cintiq 24HD Touch review

The Wacom Cintiq 24HD Touch offers a full HD experience with a screen resolution of 1900x1200 pixels, and an aspect ratio of 16:10. Currently, it is Wacom’s highest color performance display delivering a staggering 97% of Adobe’s RGB color gamut with more than 1 billion colors. All of this is packed into a 24” multi-touch display weighing in at 28.6 kg (63.8 lbs), including the stand. It also costs $2,999! So, it is worth it?

The DODOcase leather wallet for iPhone is everything you love about the DODOcases for iPad made pocket-sized. Made in San Francisco, the DODOCase leather wallet for iPhone combines fine, old world leather sewn onto sturdy book backing with three "slash" pockets and one window pocket to hold your credit and ID cards, and a tray to hold your iPhone. So how does it stack up?

BookBook wallet case for iPhone review

Twelve South's BookBook wallet case for iPhone 5s and iPhone 5 looks, for all intents and purposes, like a gorgeous old leather-bound book. Like something out of a pulp-fiction library or fantasy role-playing game, magic bound within. And indeed there is! Open the BookBook up and your iPhone — and cards and cash — are safe and secure inside!

Belkin QODE Ultimate Keyboard Case for iPad Air review

The iPad Air can be a productivity powerhouse when paired with a great keyboard case. We've already put several of them head to head and now Belkin's back with another offering, the QODE Ultimate Keyboard Case. I had issues with some of the design choices Belkin made with the standard QODE Keyboard Case which I outlined in my review. Let's see if Belkin's top of the line offering fares any better in real world use...

booq Boa squeeze bag hands-on!

The booq Boa squeeze packs five accessory pockets spread along the sides and the back, an iPhone compartment on top, and an iPad and MacBook Air or MacBook Pro pockets inside. And yet it still manages to look sleek and sexy! Thanks to a 1680 denier ballistic nylon exterior and ultra-soft nylex interior, it'll repel tears and water, and keep all your gear safe and secure as well!

Brian Cox's Wonders of Life lets you hold the glories of nature in your hands

Brian Cox's Wonders of Life comes from the same team that brought us Wonders of the Universe.

For those who haven't, like Wonders of the Universe before it, Wonders of Life takes you on a journey, this time not of stars and solar systems, but of plants and animals. It's not just the journey here that makes Wonders of Life such an amazing iOS experience. It's the experience that makes Wonders of Life such an amazing iOS app.

Tylt PowerPlant portable battery pack with Lightning connector review

Wi-Fi. Cellular. Games. The more you use your iPhone, the more you're going to run down the battery. As advanced as the iPhone gets inside, there are still practical limits for the capacity of its internal batteries, and sometimes what comes with it simply isn't enough. That's where a device like Tylt's PowerPlant, a portable battery pack, can really make a difference.

Beyond the Dead review: Build a settlement of zombie killers on iOS

There’s no shortage of zombie games in the modern age, not even on mobile. And while zombies lend themselves especially well to action and shooter games, they also pop up in many other genres.  A couple of iOS examples: The Walking Dead is quite a popular adventure game, and cult favorite Zombies!!! mixes the undead with a dice-rolling board game.

Mobile publishing giant GREE has recently tossed its own hat into the world of zombie games with Beyond the Dead. Coming from GREE’s Vancouver-based studio, Beyond the Dead is more of a traditional mobile game than the two titles I just mentioned. But this one’s mixture of card collecting and town building with a zombie apocalypse still makes it worth a look for zombie-loving casual gamers.
