Magic The Gathering: Theros Blazing Beasts Of Myth Intro Pack Review

Sunday, October 20th, 2013

Blazing Beasts of Myth is one of the 5 new intro packs spearheading the Theros expansion. It’s a Red/Green deck that focuses on early game survival and mana ramping, and has some great cards to this end.

Otone Aporto USB/Battery Powered 2.0 Speaker Review

Monday, January 30th, 2012

I’ve never been a huge fan of portable speakers, this is probably because they’re traditionally quite awful. The Otone Aporto, however, combines reasonably decent sound with a quirky transforming trick. Its creator, Otone Audio, is a home-grown rising star in the audio world, headquartered in Manchester. They’re a relatively new and largely unknown company who […]

Out of a blue comes a YouTube advertisement from Motorola. The imagery seems to suggest a new RAZR, with… well… a razor being shown alongside things getting sliced in half. But this will be a smarter, faster phone which suggests an Android-powered handset with the famed RAZR moniker. I’m a fan of Motorola’s recent Android […]
