Smart iReach Selfie Stick

I’m going to head into unpopular territory at this moment and defend selfie sticks.

Review: Adonit Jot Pro Stylus

Adonit Jot Pro Stylus

Although an early driving theme behind the iPad was that the most natural stylus is your finger, a lot of us have found that fingers aren’t necessarily the most accurate drawing and writing tool, nor even the most natural feeling after a lifetime of using pencils and pens.
