PlayProof Review for iPhone 6/6S


The two most important things to consider when evaluating and all-purpose iPhone case are its size and it's ability to protect the phone from drops.  While there are many other factors we'll need to consider, this PlayProof case by evolutive labs certainly nails those two.  They claim that this case is drop rated to 11.5 feet while only adding 2mm of thickness to the iPhone. Evolutive labs was kind enough to send me these cases for review and in this review we'll put the PlayProof through its paces and show you why this case is one of my new top picks for an iPhone case.

ecobee3 Smart Thermostat Review (HomeKit enabled)


When it comes to heating and cooling your home, there are thermostats, smart thermostats, and then there's Ecobee.  And while this HomeKit enabled Ecobee3 was introduced just this past year, Ecobee has been making smart thermostats since 2007.  That's nearly four years before their biggest competition hit the scene.  Since that time their thermostat offerings have improved drastically and this latest thermostat is the culmination of their years of experience.  Ecobee was kind enough to send me this thermostat for review, and in this review we'll explain why you should consider purchasing a smart thermostat and we'll see if the additional options and features of this ecobee make it stand out from the competition.

Urban Armor Gear for iPhone 6 and 6S Review


What does a successful case manufacturer do when a new iPhone launches and it still fits in the existing cases?  They launch new colors.  This is the new UAG case for iPhone 6 and 6S in Cobalt blue.  The other two new colors are Magma red and Ash gray and both feature this shiny transparent finish.  UAG was kind enough to send me this case for review and in this review we'll touch on what's different in the transparent cases versus the solid colors and also highlight why this is still my top recommendation for a slim but tough iPhone case.
