Gumdrop Military Edition iPad 2 Case Reviewed

Sunday, June 12th, 2011

Hot on the heels of OtterBox, Gumdrop are hitting the Market hard with some fine competition for this well established maker of rugged cases. Following on from their Drop Series iPad 2 case Gumdrop have a brand new evolution, the Military Spec iPad 2 case. As the name suggests, this beauty has a few upgrades […]

SteelSeries Siberia Neckband Headset Review

Saturday, May 28th, 2011

I’ve never quite understood neckband headsets, and they do take some getting used to. The laws of gravity seem to dictate that having the band on top of your head is the most sensible location, but fashion will always try to run against the grain and thus, and for seemingly no other reason I can […]

Samson Meteor Podcast Microphone Review

Saturday, May 28th, 2011

It’s been a while since I’ve laid my hands upon any shiny audio gear, actually it’s been a while since I’ve done much of anything when it comes to Gadgetoid but I digress. Few things, it would seem, come shinier than the Samson Meteor mic, which looks like a 1950s take on a Portal (the […]

Foofbag Sleeve Case For iPad 2 And iPad

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

You didn’t think I’d stop at the MacBook Pro foofbag with the iPad 2 making such a great excuse for a whole new spate of case reviews? Indeed, I’ve managed to wrangle an iPad 2 foofbag… Okay, it’s for the original iPad but that wont stop it fitting the tablets slimmer sibling just as cosily. […]

iPad 2 Cases

Thursday, March 3rd, 2011

With Apple having a strong case offering for the iPad 2, in the form of the “Smart Case”, third party manufacturers are going to have to go the extra mile, and that’s certainly not a bad thing for us consumers. I’m already getting a rush of emails in about various iPad cases, with MobileFun already […]

Brenthaven 5-in-1 iPad Case Review

Thursday, February 3rd, 2011

It’s difficult for form not to follow function in a case. By their very definition they must encase your gadget, protecting it, long before they can worry about looking pretty. Brenthaven have taken this one step further with their 5-in-1 iPad case. Function definitely follows form, so much so that it clearly compromises it. But […]

MiFi 3352 On The Horizon, Unlocked 2352 Just £137

Wednesday, November 3rd, 2010

I’m a huge fan of the MiFi 2352. Favouring it’s lovely unlocked goodness, flexibility and great feature-set over network-locked alternatives. It cost a whopping £220 back when I first reviewed it, but Multiplex Systems are now listing it at £137. This is great news for anyone with an existing data contract or rolling contract, I […]

XGear Live Thin Shield And Silhouette iPad Cases

Saturday, October 30th, 2010

There’s no shortage of people out there who want their iPad protected with a minimum of bulk and, often, a minimum of aesthetic interference. The iPad is a beautiful device, indeed, and the Thin Shield is an excellent case for showing it off, whilst remaining theoretically more durable than hard plastic alternatives. The Silhouette is […]

Griffin GuitarConnect Review

Wednesday, September 29th, 2010

One might be forgiven for saying “it’s just a cable,” and that’s all the Griffin GuitarConnect Cable is at face value. But what it represents is liberation, a pathway to creativity and access to a diverse variety of reasonably good quality filters which would set you back a pretty penny in pedal form. I’ve got […]

InnoPocket HexaPose iPad Stand Review

Tuesday, August 24th, 2010

The InnoPocket HexaPose is the iPad stand that us lovers of Apple’s monitor and iMac aesthetic secretly wanted, coupled with tilt and rotate functionality that every iMac or Apple monitor owner secretly wants. InnoPocket have shamelessly and effectively ripped off the Apple monitor stand design when creating their HexaPose iPad stand, and I applaud them […]
