Today I am going to be reviewing the Veho 360 BluTooth Wireless speaker. I usually test all of the Bluetooth devices with my iPhone, but in addition to my iPhone I also paired it with my MacBook Air. The speakers in the air aren’t bad, but I wanted to see what kind of performance I […]
If you have been following the history of the iPhone, I’m sure you remember the famous Antenna Gate with the release of the original iPhone 4. The problem was if you held the phone in a “Death-grip” it would cause you to loose signal. The solution at the time was to add a “bumper”. The […]
