With 100+ servers in over 44 countries, IPVanish is one of the best and most reliable VPN services I’ve used to date.

I like to stream content through my laptop and tablet…everything from news and magazines to TV shows and movies…one of my biggest pet peeves is when I travel and I can’t access content from my home country. Why can’t I travel Europe and still be able to connect to Netflix and get USA content? This is where IPVanish comes in. Once installed, it allows me the ability to make it seem like I’m connected from anywhere in the world.

Signing up for an account and installing the application is incredibly easy…you can download it to your PC/tablet, have it configured and working within minutes. With the VPN service activated, you are able to “appear” almost anywhere in the world. Some people even have their routers configured with VPN clients and running the IPVanish service, allowing all devices in their network to be connected from another country. This is very convenient for devices that do not allow you to run a VPN client on them (IE: Apple TV, Roku, etc.).

Here’s some geek info:

Acoustic Research Releases New iPad and iPhone Accessory Lineup Designed for Her

AR for Her 3

Back in November, we told you about Acoustic Research’s new line of iPad accessories in the “For Her” series. In November, AR announced that the line up would include a tufted design in black or white, a pink and white polka dot design or a leopard print look. Today, the company has unveiled the entire spring 2014 collection, with a few new designs, plus a few new accessories.

Acoustic Research’s new “AR For Her” line of tech accessories comes in a variety of cleverly disguised forms. Not only can you accessorize your outfit with a matching purse-like speaker, but you can also keep your iPad charged on the go with a lipstick-shaped backup battery. Give your desk a little color with the mini speaker, and make your iPad pop with colorful charging cables.

This ladies’ line of tech accessories does more than just look fashionable. Women of all backgrounds can look stunning with their geeky gadgets. “Research predicts that millennial women will account for almost 15 percent of all U.S. retail sales by the year 2020, with consumer electronics being a top industry for growth,” said David Geise, President of VOXX Accessories Corporation. “We created AR for her because we see the great impact millennial women will have on the American tech industry in the coming years and we wanted to be at the forefront of that movement.”

In addition to the purse-like wireless Bluetooth speaker we mentioned in November, the AR For Her line incudes the “ZipStick,” which is a portable battery pack featuring a flashlight and a panic alarm for $34.99. The runway inspired designs include polka dots, and white tufted patterns. The USB port makes it possible for you to charge any compatible device on the go with a 2200 mAh UL Lithium ion battery. Optional versions without a panic alarm are available in black, cobalt, red, animal print, cayenne polka dot and white for $29.99.

The mini speaker is Bluetooth compatible and is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. The smooth rubberized finish and lightweight design makes it the perfect accessory for moonlight walks on the beach or a picnic in the park. The mini speaker is available in cayenne polka dot, black, and white for $34.99.

AR for Her 4

Of course, everyone needs a charging cable. Why should you have to look like everyone else with a boring old white one. AR for Her has a line of brightly colored three-foot charging cables for Lightning, 30-pin, and micro USB charging. Colors and patterns will vary and will be available in spring for $11.99 to $24.99.

Have an iPad-related Question? Check Out Our New ‘Ask the Expert’ Column

We spend a lot of time on our iPads here at PadGadget, testing out apps, playing games, and discovering new tricks. As a result, we are essentially iPad experts, and now we want to share that knowledge with you.

Each week we will be accepting questions from you, our readers, which we will answer in this new column. You can ask us anything, from how to use a feature on your iPad, to the best apps for a certain task, and anything in between.

Looking for the perfect app for note taking? Want to know how to make phone calls on your iPad? Need a great new game to play, or tips on how to use your iPad to keep in contact with friends and family? Just ask us, because we are here to help. Think of me as your personal iPad tour guide from here on out.

To start things off, I will answer a sample question that I have heard multiple times from my own friends and family: How do I set up iCloud on my iPad?

The answer is simple, luckily, because Apple makes this experience pain free. First you will need an iPad running the latest version of iOS, which is iOS 6. You can check the version of your iPad, and look for any updates, by navigating to the General tab of the Settings menu. You’ll also need an Apple ID, and if you’ve ever downloaded an app, you already have one.

Apple gives you the option to turn on iCloud when you set up a new device, but you can also activate it in the Settings menu. Open it up, scroll down to “iCloud,” and you can turn on individual sections after signing in with the aforementioned ID.

iCloud is useful for syncing Apple apps like Mail, Contacts, Calendars, Reminders, Safari, Notes, and Passbook. It is also useful for sharing documents in applications like Pages and Numbers, and it’s absolutely essential if you ever lose your iPad. Each of these apps can be turned on one by one, but make sure you turn on Find My iPad, which will locate any missing device.

You will also want to scroll down to the bottom of the screen to turn on iCloud backup. This option ensures that your iPad will sync to the cloud automatically, eliminating the need to back it up on a computer. Photo Stream is also a helpful feature, serving as a backup source for all of your photos. Lory wrote up an excellent guide on how to use Photo Stream, so make sure to take a look for further instruction.

There’s no need to do anything other than turn each iCloud option on, both on your iPad and on your other Apple devices or your Mac. iCloud settings on your Mac are located in “System Preferences,” which can be accessed by clicking on the Apple at the top of the screen.

The syncing will happen automatically whenever you use an iCloud enabled app. For example, once you have turned on iCloud and you make an appointment in the calendar app, it will sync to all of your other devices. It’s an essential service, and it really is simple to use. For an even more precise step-by-step instruction manual, check out Apple’s iCloud setup site.

If you have any additional questions, feel free to ask in the comments. You can expect each week’s post to be detailed, direct, and full of useful information. Let us know what you’re looking for in the answers – we’re aiming to tailor these posts to our reader’s needs.

Commenting on the weekly Ask the Expert posts is one way to ask us a question, but you can also use the PadGadget contact form, which is located here.

If there’s an issue you’ve been trying to figure out or an app you’ve been searching for, you’re in the right place. Ask us, and check back next week for an answer!
