Super Slim Battery Case for iPhone
Finally! A battery case that doesn’t look or feel like a battery case! I love this. Instead of adding another battery, it has tech that keeps your phone cool. Why does that matter? When your phone gets hot, it takes up more energy. People are getting up to 20% longer battery life just by using this case. It fully supports wireless charging and is available for the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X, XS models. Find it here.

But stay tuned for the next iPhone to see what Apple decides to do. How do you like to unlock your phone?
Review on Time Flip Magnet
Time Flip is one of the coolest ideas I’ve come across for a smart device. I just want one that works. I bought it, set it up, and it just didn’t work as advertised. I hope they have gone back to the drawing board to create something in the future that will work because it is a pretty amazing idea! I’d love to be able to drop this in my bag and bring it with me to the office and flip it depending on the tasks I’m working on.
I’m going to keep my eye on this company and will let you know if I come across anything great. By-the-way, if you ever come across something cool and helpful, drop us a line! We know about a lot, but not everything!
With the prices of SSDs going down we’re finding more and more great products that are affordable. Check out this new drive from G-Technology. It’s a 1TB external drive that’s about 15x faster than your typical cheap external you’d get from Best Buy. It’s water and dust resistant, can handle drops up to 9 feet, and crush proof up to 1,000lbs. I would compare this to the Samsung T5. The T5 is just as fast and about the same size but wasn’t built to be “rugged”. You’ll find the T5 comes in about about $170 for 1TB and the G-Drive at $210 as of May 2019.
The iPad 2 is now considered obsolete
The last device that Steve Jobs launched at an Apple event, the iPad 2, is now considered obsolete. This is no surprise as it is now 8 years old. Pretty crazy to think how far we have come with the iPad since it was first launched. RIP Steve.
