Review: PadPivot NST Ultra Portable Universal Tablet Stand

We were sent the PadPivot stand to try out with our iPads and were initially impressed by the stand. The versatility is impressive, and I was looking forward to being able to strap it to my leg in the car or curled up on the sofa with my feet up. Unfortunately, not long into testing, the stand broke.… Continue Reading “Review: PadPivot NST Ultra Portable Universal Tablet Stand”

Review: Sony Xperia Z

We were sent a Sony Xperia Z to try out for a few weeks, and in the interest of a proper trial, I swapped the micro-sim from my iPhone and popped it into the Sony, before tucking my iPhone away in the drawer, where it stayed for 95% of the time.

My first impressions of the phone were that it seemed really nice; sleek, shiny, and of good quality. It comes with a micro-USB cable and a neat little plug for charging, with the third prong slotting into place when in use, and tucking out of the way when you want to slip it into your bag.… Continue Reading “Review: Sony Xperia Z”

Review: Ideal Cases Personalised Kindle Paperwhite Case

There is a great range of products & designs, with customisable cases for most of the popular tablets, eReaders & smartphones currently on the market.… Continue Reading “Review: Ideal Cases Personalised Kindle Paperwhite Case”

Review: Otterbox for iPhone 4S Commuter Series

With a toddler in the house, it’s important to have a case that can protect your phone from drops and bangs. The Otterbox Commuter case is a fairly slimline case which attempts to make the compromise between a high level of protection without adding too much bulk. Unfortunately, the result isn’t quite as good as it could be…… Continue Reading “Review: Otterbox for iPhone 4S Commuter Series”

Review: Speck iGuy Case and Stand for iPad Mini

Our initial reaction to the iGuy upon opening it was “Wow, this looks fun… and it should do the job, too!”, and it hasn’t disappointed. James got an iPad Mini just before Christmas and is, understandably, rather protective about it… especially as Georgie can easily (and with an air of complete nonchalance) carry it about in one hand as she clambers about the room. We knew we needed something to make it more kid-proof, and the iGuy fits the bill completely.… Continue Reading “Review: Speck iGuy Case and Stand for iPad Mini”

Review: OXpwr Two Multi Purpose Battery Pack

I was sent the OXpwr Two a while ago to review (shamefully long ago; I’m afraid pregnancy, illness & other Real Life things have been interfering with the smooth running of Mama Geek!), and must admit am quite a big fan of this little gadget.… Continue Reading “Review: OXpwr Two Multi Purpose Battery Pack”

Review: Mooskins Personalised iPhone Case

When I bought my iPhone 4S last year, I quickly got myself kitted out with a Reveal case from Griffin, which I chose because I was concerned about adding too much bulk to my iPhone. However, I was quickly disappointed as the rubber edging of the case didn’t stand up well to Georgie’s grabbing (or any general use), and seemed to get looser & looser, so the case rapidly gathered dust & debris underneath the clear back which looked awful. The bottom opening to the dock connector was too small – it was a very tight fit with the official cable and I couldn’t use our third party in car charger at all, which was a right pain on long journeys.… Continue Reading “Review: Mooskins Personalised iPhone Case”
