Azumio Argus Motion Tracking App Review

In Reviews, Tech by Brandon

With the release of the iPhone 5s (and the iPad Air), Apple added the M7 motion coprocessor. The M7 chip isolates the motion tracking functionality that used to be built in to the main chipset, this means that the motion tracking instruments — the accelerometers, gyroscopes, and compasses— now do not require the main chip to be powered on, thereby …

Apple iPhone 5s Case Review

In Reviews by Brandon

After braving the crowds early Friday Morning (and stumbling upon some crazy iPhone exporting ring) I finally had an iPhone 5s. It wasn’t until Saturday AM that I realized that needed a case on my 5s (my trusty Poetic Atmosphere was included in the sale of my iPhone 5), and the new leather iPhone 5s case from Apple seemed like …

In Reviews by Brandon

The biggest complaint when the iPhone 5 first came out was that the replacement of the ubiquitous 30-pin connector with the new lightning one meant that virtually all of the iPhone peripherals people had accumulated over the years were now useless.

Newer Technologies NuTouch Gloves review

In Reviews by Brandon

For those who may not know, SupplyDrop is based in Boston, MA, where we have angry drivers, the Red Sox, and well, cold weather. This means that for at least 3 months a year I am wearing gloves (except this year, with unseasonably warm weather), and the biggest problem with gloves is that my smartphone is essentially useless to me …

Poetic Atmosphere iPhone 5/5s Case Review

In Reviews, Tech by Brandon

Here we are, another day, another iPhone case review. At least this time it’s for the iPhone 5. I have a confession: I hate iPhone cases. I have not successfully kept a case on my phone since the 3GS, and even then, that case lasted only a couple of months. For any case to be successful, it needs to fit …
