The Best iPhone 13 Mini Cases

The iPhone 13 mini would hopefully not mind us calling it petite. We honestly mean it as a compliment since most phones are too big for those of us with smaller hands. But just because it's mini, that doesn't mean you shouldn't provide it with a maximum amount of protection.

The Best iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro Cases

So you finally figured out which of the four new iPhone models is right for you, but the one thing you can't decide on is what case to get. Maybe you chose the iPhone 13, which has a few advantages over its predecessor—like its (slightly) more friendly price, enhanced battery life, and an A15 Bionic chip that handles Cinematic video mode. Or maybe you chose the iPhone 13 Pro for 1TB of storage and a lens setup that gives you telephoto abilities.

The Best iPhone 13 Pro Max Cases

You bought the iPhone 13 Pro Max because you like a bigger phone. But big phones take big falls. You're going to need a case that can protect the phone, particularly since it can cost up to $1,599 and has some serious camera lenses. This list has lots of options depending on your needs. There's one case that keeps the camera covered when not in use, a couple of options that strap your phone right to you, and one that has a handle built right in. Of course you could be the type who barely wants a case at all, and in that case we also have you covered.

The Best iPad Keyboards for 2021

Apple's iPad, iPad mini, iPad Air, and iPad Pro are unquestionably the rulers of the tablet market. As of Q1 2021, Apple dominates the tablet market with 31.7% market share. All the iPads offer a variety of sizes and features, but no touch screen can replace a keyboard for writing and revising lengthy documents. Fortunately, whether you're at home, at work, or at school, these Bluetooth keyboards can make your iPad feel like a laptop. As a bonus, many of them work with iPhones as well.

Need Your Caffeine Fix? Check Out the Best Smart Coffee Makers for 2021

If you're like me, you need coffee in your system in order to function in the morning. The problem is, the times you need coffee the most are the times you're the least capable of operating appliances.

No matter the issue, it would be great if you could just summon the perfect cup using your phone, so that it's waiting for you when you walk into the kitchen.

The Best Phone and Camera Gimbals for 2021

For a long time, you had to make a choice between buying a camera that snapped still photos or moving pictures. But the lines have eroded over the years, and the mirrorless interchangeable lens systems that dominate the camera market today are true hybrid devices, just as good at recording 4K and 8K video as they are at snapping high-quality Raw photos.

What's the Best iPhone to Buy in 2021?

You may have heard that "the iPhone" is the most popular smartphone in the US. But that's not quite accurate, because there are a lot of different iPhone models being sold right now. At the time of this writing, Apple itself is offering eight different iPhone models. Survey the shelves at the three major US carriers, as well as Metro and Cricket, and that number rises much higher.

The Best Sheetfed Document Scanners for 2021

I’ve covered the document scanner industry for well over 20 years, and each year I find myself even more impressed with the sheer number of machines. There’s everything from tiny single-sheet portables capable of scanning and processing just a few pages per minute (ppm) up to high-volume workhorses rated at a few hundred pages per minute or more. These sheetfed document scanners are on the workhorse end of the spectrum. If you've only worked with the relatively slow scanners on all-in-one printers, you'll be amazed how quick a dedicated sheetfed scanner can be.

The Best 75-Inch (and up) TVs for 2021

When it comes to TVs these days, 65 inches isn't considered nearly as large as it used to be. Sure, 65 inches is plenty big—probably too big for small rooms and apartments—but with 75- and 85-inch models becoming increasingly common, anything smaller just doesn't quite say "big-screen TV." It's also...

The Best Sony Mirrorless Lenses for 2021

Cameras that can swap out lenses, like those in Sony's mirrorless system, don't work with just any lens. You'll need to shop for one that's made for your camera. If you opt for the Sony system, you'll benefit from a very long history, and with a decade's worth of lens development, there are oodles of optics from which to choose.

The Best Small Business CRM Software for 2021

Customer relationship management (CRM) platforms keep sales departments informed and efficient, both of which are vital to staying competitive no matter what size of business you're in. Although common in large businesses, CRMs are less common in small businesses, particularly microbusinesses and startups. You might be able to get away with a contact management app for a while, but if your sales are in any way dependent on good customer relations, you'll eventually be looking for a CRM. Fortunately, there are CRMs built specifically for small businesses that can help get you started.

The Best L-Mount Lenses for 2021

When you're buying a camera with interchangeable lenses, you're also buying into a lens system. For many, that means optics from the same manufacturer as your camera, supplemented via third parties. The L-Mount mirrorless system is a bit different—while it was started by Leica alone, it's been joined by Panasonic and Sigma. Together, the three make up the L-Mount Alliance.

Beyond PrtSc: The Best Screen-Capture Apps for 2021

You're going to need to capture an image on your monitor at some point in your life. It could be for an important investor meeting. It could be for reporting software bugs. It could be for Twitter laughs. Unfortunately, Windows' old PrtScn capture-to-Clipboard key has a very limited use, even when paired with Paint or Paint 3D for image-editing purposes. You'll need the power and flexibility that screen-capture utilities provide.

The Best Small Phones for 2021

For years, smartphones have been slowly expanding in size, to the point where it's hard to use them with just one hand. Flagships are inevitably huge: Apple and Samsung have saved their best cameras, biggest batteries, and most capacious storage for the 3-inch-wide hand-buster phones in Apple's Max series and Samsung's Note or Ultra models. But it's still possible to find small, good phones that will fit in your hand, give you all the features you want, and generally not break the bank.

The Best iPad Apps for 2021
