All-new iPad Air and iPad mini, iMac And AirPods Get Updated

Here are some new happenings over at Apple. Apple has announced the all-new iPad Air and iPad mini and revealed that it has updated the iMac line and its wireless earbuds, Apple AirPods.

At least that’s my overall sentiment of this once phenomena tech giant. Continue reading All-new iPad Air and iPad mini, iMac And AirPods Get Updated

GravaStar Is About As Conversational As A Bluetooth Speaker Can Get

If the mechanical spider Bluetooth speaker appeals to you, then I am pretty darn sure the Zoeao GravaStar Bluetooth Speaker will too. Looking like an alien invader, GravaStar is just about as conversational as a Bluetooth speaker can get. The reason cannot be more obvious. Just look at this little guy.

GravaStar is NOT just about looks; it has performance too. Continue reading GravaStar Is About As Conversational As A Bluetooth Speaker Can Get

Apparently, I should because, he did intentionally flaunted a pair of custom kicks by DC Custom Sneakers – a pair of Nike that would have hard core Tesla fans swooning all over because, Tesla logo and Elon Musk.
