Griffin iTrip AUX Review: A Cheap Way To Get Bluetooth In Your Car That's Still Kind Of Pricey

Newer cars let you connect your phone over Bluetooth, empowering you to stream music and make calls.

[Review] Griffin Stylus + Pen + Laser Pointer: You Never Knew Something So Simple Could Be So Useful

I already know what you're thinking: Are they really reviewing a stylus? Aren't all styluses (or styli, if you prefer) the same? Here's the short answer to the latter: No, they're not.

I have a few different styluses, and I can definitely confirm that using each of them is a different experience. Each one has a different feel, texture, and -- what really sets them apart from one another -- weight. For this review I will focus on the Griffin Stylus/Pen/Laser Pointer, but may throw in the occasional reference to my other two styluses -- a Targus stylus and SGP Kuel stylus -- just for comparison.
