Teracube is offering up an unheard-of 4 year warranty on their phones

I know, I know, we’ve been very heavy on phones as of late, between all of the iPhone coverage, and some other Android-related things. However, it just feels like there’s a lot of energy in that segment of the tech world, and I’m going to keep covering the stuff I find interesting.

Tesmo wants to give your laptop a little lift

Seems like ergonomics were all the rage. We had wrist wrists, mouse pads with gel built in, and all manner of things. For our keyboards, along with the split design, we’ve long had the ability to flip out little legs to adjust the typing angle. If you’re relying on the keyboard built into your latop, though, you were stuck. At least, until the Tesmo was thought up.

Portable computing power – not just for tablets anymore

When it comes to portable devices that fit in your pocket, we tend to think of things like gaming systems (Switch Lite, anyone? Or Evercade?), or maybe a tablet. If you want to go full-on and do some work, your options are a fewer. Sure, you could get a Chromebook, or get a keyboard for your tablet, but a Windows-based experience? That’s where the Pocket PC – now funding on Indiegogo – comes in.

This isn’t any old iPad dongle – it’s the BoltHub

You may have noticed a bit of a pro-Apple slant in our coverage as of late. Some of that is due to the hardware each of us most commonly uses in our daily life (and our day jobs), and some of it also has to do with the clever innovation going on. While non-Cupertino devices offer a lot of flexibility, I’d say Apple devices leave a lot of room for the aftermarket to come up with interesting solutions. One of those is the BoltHub.

Now Funding: the Qi-enabled TuffyPack

Cell phones are an all-but-indispensable part of most of our lives. Given their utility, being able to have a full charge throughout the day has drawn folks to the idea of battery pack phone cases, rather than carrying a separate battery. Makes sense, you’ve always got it with you, ready to top the phone off. One drawback is the large bump most introduce to the profile of our thin phones. Addressing that issue is the new TuffyPack.

Norshire is here to PUMP you UP (tires! pump up your tires.)

Under-inflated tires are a safety problem at worst. At best, they ruin your gas mileage. Neither are great, but stopping at the gas station and paying to use their broken air pump sucks, too. Norshire solves this for you, by making the world’s smallest tire inflator.
