Gadling Gear Review: Poüch iPad Case From Tabü

Gadling Gear Review: Poüch iPad Case From Tabü Aug 18th, 2012 at 8:00AM: Let's face it – iPad cases are a dime a dozen these days and owners of Apple's tablet have more options to choose from than they ever thought possible. Most of those cases are fairly generic looking and bring very little to the table beyond providing very basic protection to the device. But occasionally a case comes along that does stand out from the crowd and offers some unique options that...

Gadling Gear Review: Satechi Portable Energy Station

Gadling Gear Review: Satechi Portable Energy Station Jul 16th, 2012 at 8:00AM: I think it is safe to say that we now travel with more gadgets than ever. Between laptops, iPods, smartphones, tablets and digital cameras, we tend to hit the road with more technology at our disposal than James Bond. Keeping the batteries on all those gadgets fully charged can be a real challenge, however, particularly when you're away from a power outlet for an extended period of time. But the...

Apple Granted Patent For Airport Check-In System Jul 11th, 2012 at 8:00AM: The U.S. Patent Office granted Apple a nifty new patent yesterday that could potentially have an impact on the way that many of us travel. The rather vague filing describes a number of unique ways that an Apple designed device could potentially interact with a check-in system used by airlines or other modes of transportation. The patent, which was originally filed in 2008, outlines the use of...

Gadling Gear Review: Braven 600 Portable Speaker

Gadling Gear Review: Braven 600 Portable Speaker Jul 9th, 2012 at 8:00AM: A month or so back we posted some suggestions for tech and travel gifts for dads and grads with the Braven 600 portable speaker earning a spot on that list. This small, yet powerful, sound system is so impressive that we thought it was worth a full review as the compact speaker has a lot to offer travelers beyond just listening to their music on the go. The first thing you'll notice about the...

Run Your Own Airline With Pocket Planes For iPhone/iPad

Run Your Own Airline With Pocket Planes For iPhone/iPad Jun 17th, 2012 at 8:00AM: Pocket Planes, a new game from app developer NimbleBit, allows players to do something that I'm sure many of us at Gadling have always dreamed of – run our own airline. The app, which was released a few days ago, runs on both the iPhone and iPad and features deceptively simple, yet highly addictive game play. Players begin by first selecting a region of the world they want to launch their...

Gadling Gear Review: SuperTooth Disco Portal Speaker

Gadling Gear Review: SuperTooth Disco Portal Speaker May 21st, 2012 at 8:00AM: One of the best things about carrying smartphones, tablets and laptops with us when we travel, is that we are also generally carrying our entire music libraries with us as well. The problem is, the speakers on those devices aren't usually the best for enjoying that music and we don't always want to wear headphones to get the best sound. Fortunately a number of companies now make excellent portable...

Traveling With Camera Gear Made Easy With New Backpacks

Traveling With Camera Gear Made Easy With New Backpacks May 6th, 2012 at 11:00AM: Traveling with camera gear can be difficult. Delicate, sensitive lenses and other equipment need to be packed securely but in a way that allows it to be checked at security checkpoints. That makes maneuvering through airports take extra time. Now, a new series of luggage makes life easier for the traveling photographer. Think Tank Photo has a new Airport™ series of travel specific,...

Popular Guidebooks Go Digital

Popular Guidebooks Go Digital May 4th, 2012 at 2:00PM: Frommer's has a new series of guidebooks out. Nothing new there; that's what they do. Unique to Frommer's new "Day by Day" series though is that they are digital guides, which allow users to search, bookmark and navigate through the content easily. Enabled by Inkling (the interactive textbook people), the Frommer's "Day by Day" digital books retail between $10 and $15, and are available as...

Gadling Gear Review: G-Form Extreme Portfolio And Extremed Sleeve 2 For iPad

Gadling Gear Review: G-Form Extreme Portfolio And Extremed Sleeve 2 For iPad Apr 23rd, 2012 at 8:00AM: Last fall we favorably reviewed the G-Form Extreme Sleeve for the iPad, lauding it for its ability to protect our expensive devices while traveling. In developing that product, G-Form created new materials that are designed to stiffen on impact and absorb up to 90 percent of any impact. That ability was demonstrated very effectively with a video that shows a 12-pound bowling ball being dropped on...

Cockpit Chronicles: Getting More Out Of Layovers

Cockpit Chronicles: Getting More Out Of Layovers Apr 19th, 2012 at 9:00AM: For some, life couldn't be any more perfect than if they were paid to travel. I've run across three airline crew members who have discovered ways to keep their jobs fresh and exciting by embracing what is for them the biggest benefit that comes with working for an airline: travel. You hear about the turbulence in the airline industry nearly every week – layoffs, pay cuts, pensions lost...

Gadling gear review: Lenovo IdeaPad K1 tablet

Gadling gear review: Lenovo IdeaPad K1 tablet Feb 20th, 2012 at 8:00AM: Over the past two years, the introduction of tablet computers have had an unmistakable impact on how we travel. Smaller and lighter than laptops, yet with plenty of power and versatility, these devices allow us to stay connected, entertained, and productive, while on the go. Obviously, Apple's iPad is the most well known of these products, but there are a host of other tablets available as well....

Gadling gear review: DODOcase for iPad 2

Gadling gear review: DODOcase for iPad 2 Feb 7th, 2012 at 9:00AM: iPads, tablets, Kindles and other tablet devises are making it easier to carry around hundreds of books and the entire internet in slim, lightweight devices. That technology needs to be protected, and, with the DODOcase, you can do it while nostalgically remembering what it was like to carry around an actual notebook. Remember those halcyon days? But a good iPad case is defined by more than its...

Hotel in Vancouver, Canada, puts a new spin on in-room iPads Feb 1st, 2012 at 3:30PM: No need to worry about tipping your tour guide on your next trip to Vancouver, Canada, as the OPUS Vancouver hotel has recently added iPads to each of their 96 guest rooms to act as personal tour guides of the city.

Ten technology products that changed the way I traveled in 2011

Ten technology products that changed the way I traveled in 2011 Jan 5th, 2012 at 11:00AM: 2011 was a great year for Gadget lovers - the tech industry pushed out new products at an insane pace. As usual, a vast majority of said gadgets were borderline useless, but especially for the traveler, the year proved to be quite rewarding. Like most years, I went through a huge amount of new gizmos, but some of them really stood their ground - and made it into my bag for more than one...

Gadling gear review: Stem Innovation Time Command Mini clock

Gadling gear review: Stem Innovation Time Command Mini clock Jan 2nd, 2012 at 8:00AM: I've always enjoyed having a collection of my music with me when I travel. It helps me to relax on a long flight, keeps me entertained while on the go, and is much appreciated when I'm passing the time in a hotel room. Thanks to MP3 players and smartphones, it is now easier than ever to carry our entire library of music with us wherever we go, and enjoying that music is made even easier with a...
