Lots of devices this week, so if you're getting ready to go back to school, now's the time for picking up some killer deals that will rock your world without smashing your budget. We're talking MacBooks and iPads alike, so read on and find the deal for you.
When I was a kid, I discovered something amazing: detangler. You spray some on your hair, and voilà, a comb will run right through it no matter how tangled it was. To my knowledge, this product hasn’t been invented for headphone cables, and that’s a darn shame. But Jays seems to have solved the tangled cables problem anyway with the a-JAYS Four. These earbuds sport a flat rubber cable that just doesn’t tangle. I really tried, too. I balled them up and shoved them in my pocket, let them roll around in the bottom of my bag, never used a carrying case -- I even wore them in bed a few times. The cable is just wide and flat enough to resist knotting, and it simply doesn’t catch on itself when you ball it up. There’s no need to wrap or coil the headphones on anything. Just pull them out of wherever you stashed them, give ’em a shake, and they’re ready to go, untangled.
With Mountain Lion fresh out the gate, there doesn't seem to be too many deals on actual Macs this week, so cases it is. iOS accessories know no season and proliferate worse than bunnines in the springtime. We've rounded up the best of the sweet little bunnies and have just what you're looing for. Take a look at that face! How can you say no?
This week was the case of lots of cases. In fact, that seemed to be where all the good cost cutting action was. Sure, there were tons of App Store deals over the holiday, but this isn't our app price drop, this is solid merchandise you can hold in your hand. And what's better to hold in your hand than a slick case protecting your devices? Let's have a look at some of these.
I’m no cable-management fanatic, but I still don’t want to have to retrieve fallen MagSafe connectors from under the desk (that’s where dust bunnies have their picnic) or mistakenly grab my husband’s earbuds as I’m running out the door.
Hello, the 80s are calling! Give 'em a listen with this novelty case that'll be sure to get plenty of laughs. Looking for something a little more serious? Well, how about some serious savings on some killer hardware and software? Yeah, we thought you'd like that.
Sure, you could buy the same celeb-endorsed headphones that everyone else has. But for the ultimate in quality and personalization, a pair of custom-made in-ear earbuds is hard to beat. Custom buds used to be the exclusive province of musicians and sound engineers, but they’re becoming more affordable.
The world is a noisy place, and it’s nice to ensconce yourself in a comforting cone of music. The winner of our June contest will win id America’s Spark earbuds. Modeled after spark plugs, they provide smooth, clear audio and the inline microphone lets you answer calls on an iPhone, too.
We’re in the age of the celebrity headphone. Everyone from Jay-Z to Quincy Jones to, um, Snooki has headphone deals now. Those celebrity endorsement deals don’t come cheap, which is why it’s common to see certain brands costing several hundred dollars. But not everyone wants to drop several bills on a pair of cans. So we rounded up some more moderately priced headphones and put them through their paces. And the results were surprising.
Life's full of problems, so don't let your cords become an issue. This week's Mac|Life Show is all about getting those cords properly wrapped up so they're not impeding on all sorts of other areas in your life--like, uh, that other stuff in your bag.
