Skullcandy FMJ iPhone earbuds and microphone – Review


Skullcandy; now there’s a naming success. Skullcandy’s a little company that markets a wide selection of headphones, earbuds, and accessories. I’ve never had any trouble remembering this firm’s name! Skullcandy’s target audience is the skater/hiphop crowd, but don’t let that (or their too-cool-for-school website design) drive you away, even if you lean more to the fuddy-duddy side of the spectrum.

PRIMA SELECT Premium Leather iPhone Flip Case – Review

The Weeks Division of MyMac Labs get plenty of iPhone cases to review. Some are better than others. Unfortunately, Prima’s Premium Leather Flip case does not fall into the "better than others" category. While our review case was nicely made of leather, with several slots for credit cards or licenses, Prime seems to have not understood what makes a useful iPhone case.

Rick Sammon’s Canon EOS Digital Rebel Personal Training DVD
Review


The Canon EOS Digital Rebel Personal Training DVD seems to be aimed at first-time DSLR owners, and Rick Sammon certainly has far more than a few things to teach them. Much of the material is pretty universal, but the DVD is specifically aimed at owners of Canon’s Rebel XTi.

Review


MyMac.Com has reviewed different large multiple-disk storage products recently.

Laptop Legs and Mac Feet
Review

I own a newer PowerBook. And as anyone who owns a newer PowerBook (or any newer laptop) knows by now, it gets very HOT! Enter Laptop Legs and Mac Feet from LapWorks to solve the problem. When I first saw this product, I said, “No way, I’m not sticking those things to the bottom of my PowerBook.” But once again, after having my PowerBook get so warm I could not longer type on it, I decided to give them a try, and I am happy I did.
