Micro-SIM Shop adapters

SIM adapters are great when you need to switch between devices that don’t use the same-sized SIMs. Poorly made adapters can damage your device, so finding a good one is key. I decided to check out MicroSIM-Shop’s SIM adapters after reading about them on some mobile forums.

Sennheiser Momentum Ivory

The right pair of headphones can make an appreciable difference in how much you enjoy your music. Bad headphones can make even the best songs sound like crud. But a nice pair will encourage you to close your eyes and lose yourself in the music. The Sennheiser Momentums do a great job of that with a subtle style and beauty.

Element Case Sector 5 Black Ops Elite

The Sector 5 Black Ops Elite case for the iPhone 5/5s is Element Case’s flagship case in their tactical line. Aside from the usual features of the Sector 5 case, the Black Ops Elite also uses G10, a durable plastic laminate normally used in handgun grips and tactical knives. I picked up a sample during CES and used it for several weeks. I really liked it for the most part, but had a couple of issues with it.

SanDisk Connect flash drive

Mobile device manufacturers still charge a big premium for devices with additional memory. The cost difference between a base iPad Air with 16GB of memory and the 128GB version is a whopping $300.

Kensington PowerBolt 3.1

Having a single iPhone or smartphone used to be a big deal, then came tablets like the iPad. Now having multiple devices is the norm, which brings us to a charging dilemma. Charging your devices at home is probably a non-issue, but how about when you’re in your car? Can you and your spouse or partner charge your phones at the same time? What about an iPad? Got kids in the back with their own devices? What then? Kensington tries to address all of these questions with the PowerBolt 3.1 car charger.

ThinkPad T430

When I think of high-end business laptops, the first name that comes to mind is the ThinkPad T series. The T Series is somewhat of a throwback laptop, with Ultrabooks being the “it” design of late. The ThinkPad T Series’ classic design is precisely why I find it so appealing and why you’re probably reading this review. The T430 is Lenovo’s current T Series model and after taking a nice long look, I believe it’s a nice incremental upgrade from the T420.

Seagate Slim

Portable hard drives are great for carrying around data and for backups, but some “portable” hard drives aren’t always that portable. The Seagate Slim USB 3.0 portable hard drive, on the other hand, is amazingly thin and lightweight. But does it sacrifice performance for that svelte form factor?
