Utomic Metal Bumper for iPhone X Review

Silver Utomic iPhone X Metal Bumper case
The same company that made my lowest rated case also made my favorite. Some time ago, I gave the Utomic Edge corner protection for the iPhone X an abysmal review. While I appreciated the minimalism, I was not a fan of the adhesive. Perhaps it was the polished stainless steel, my tight jeans getting caught...

Moshi Vitros iPhone X Case Review

The Moshi Vitros was certainly an interesting case… I received the Moshi Vitros case about a week and a half ago. I found it conflicting. On one hand, it’s a beautiful case. I got the metallic red case, which looked amazing in photos of it on a black iPhone, and I’m happy to report looks...

Interest in iPhone at Historic Low

Did the price point of the iPhone X hurt interest in Apple’s iPhone? The iPhone has been Apple’s main source of profitability for nearly a decade. Customers upgrade their smartphones far more often than computers or tablets, and iPhones have massive profit margins, so while the Mac might have made Apple, the iPhone made it...

iPhone X Review: A Month-long Review

I often start writing a review within a few hours of using a product. I didn’t do that for the iPhone X. In part because, like many people who wanted an iPhone on release day, I’m a little late to the party. Reviewers from major blogs got to spend a day with the iPhone X...

Spigen Liquid Crystal iPhone X Case Review

Weeks before I got my iPhone X, I held a case for it in my hands. Spigen was quick to release a case for the iPhone X, and I ordered it expecting the best, an iPhone on launch day. I didn’t get that. In fact, I didn’t get my iPhone X for some time later....

iPhone X Meta-Review

The past few weeks have been rough for me. I’ve been apartment hunting, packing, and moving. On top of that, I stayed up until 4 AM last Friday to pre-order the iPhone X. Refreshing my Mac’s browser as well as both my iPad’s and my iPhone’s Apple Store apps, both on and off my WiFi....

Apple’s Not First, It’s Best

Apple didn’t release the first smartphone, they didn’t release the first touchscreen phone, but they did release the best, by a wide margin. Since then, other smartphones evolved to look more like Apple’s, and from there, we get the iOS vs Android duopoly that we have today. Apple wasn’t the first to make a GUI,...

Everything Apple Announced, and What it Means

You know? I like the number 9. It’s the highest single digit decimal number, it’s the number for the first month of fall, it’s my favorite number squared, and, for some silly reason, 9/10ths of a cent are added to the price of every gallon of gas in the U.S. Yes, 9 is a pretty...
