The past month I put the Philips Padded Easel Case for the iPad to the test. My iPad is always on the go, and needs that extra protection. However, for now I wasn’t ready for a titanium shield around it. The case’s exterior is smooth and is resistant to most palm marks, but once in a while some latent ones from lunch are easily wiped clean. The texture is friendly to decals, an opportunity to truly customize this case and make it an extension of me.

The fine folks at ModulR were nice enough to send us their new ModulR iPad Case Accessory System. I don’t think I have been this excited to get a case since I first saw the Method Portfolio by M-Edge. The accessory system comes not only with an iPad case but also a cover, stand and wall mount ($99.00USD). I thought for many reasons this case was going to quickly transition into my full-time keeper, displayer and protector of my tablet goodness. The only problem with this vision is the [...]

Blame it on the rain…or the iPad!
I use my iPad and iPhone all day for work and play. Combined they are the hub for connecting with my social network, sending emails, taking/revising notes during a meeting, sharing demos, watching TED Talks… But sometimes I want to embrace my inner wanna-be artist and create cool photos.
Since I am not a photographer or Photoshop wizard, I spend much of my time turning my very average photos into works of “art” – hey beauty is in the [...]

As many of you know I am very active on Twitter (@ifficiency). I can’t help but set the record straight on the NEW and IMPROVED Verizon iPad. Most of the comments I have read on Twitter describe how “Amazing the new Verizon iPad will be” or “how service is going to be so much better.”
The Verizon iPad is nothing more than a standard Wifi only iPad you can buy at ANY Apple, Bestbuy, Target or Walmart. No difference! No bloatware, not faster connection speeds…nothing. [...]

Chris Brogan recently spoke at a LinkedOC event I attended and confessed to us he does not use location based services. He stated “Foursquare is the AOL of yesterday. It is not the best, but its all we got“. Although I agree with Chris and have never really seen the merit of “checking-in” I am now a believer in their future.
I have spent the last few months testing location based services Foursquare, Gowalla and Whrrl on my iPhone 4. This post is not intended to be [...]

My friends at Wireless Emporium sent me this awesome iPad case. Before I review the case I recommend you check these guys out. The site is clean and has a huge selection of ‘gadget’ accessories. There is a link at the bottom of this post for free shipping!
The case we received (the day after we ordered it) is simple sleek and serves its purpose masterfully. I have had the opportunity to review more than a few cases from different manufacturers and I truly do like this case. The [...]

In the midst of Apples new controversy ‘GlassGate‘ case Manufacturer EXOGEAR has come out with a very bold statement. According to Abigail with M-Squared the PR firm for the case manufacturer ” EXOGEAR announces that its snap-on case is the best and only option for avoiding breakage.”
Well Abby, I have to agree! I have been using the case since the first day it was released and it is the only case I use. It takes care of every possible downfall the iPhone 4 could [...]

The fine folks at Griffin Technology were nice enough to send us a new model iPad case to review. Like Christmas in October a brown UPS box containing the Elan Form Graphite showed up and the first thing we noticed was the slick texture of the Woven-look outer layer. The inside of the case is made of an impact resistant polycarbonite (big words for what feels like a rubber liner) adding limited shock absorption.
Unlike a lot of cases this one is slim and enhances the feel of your iPad while [...]

Recently I have fallen in love with YourVersion. The service is nothing more than a news “aggregator” that allows YOU to define the content it displays. All the rage for the last few months have been apps like Flipboard and Pulse. RSS readers with amazingly beautiful front ends that read feeds defined by you. Where these Apps fall short are that the only content they display are what feeds you enter. You place the ifficiency.com/feed and a stream of all recent posts come flooding [...]
