Friday, August 5th, 2011

If you live in Britain, then you’ll recognise summer and the hot weather that goes with it as an elusive beast that creeps up on you when you least expect it, delivering its fickle burst of heat for a handful of days before giving way to storms. When this happens we all dive for our […]

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 […]

APC BE700G UPS reviewed with 27″ iMac

Wednesday, May 12th, 2010

I’m taking a look at the APC BE700G UPS, using it with a 27″ iMac simply because there’s no good information out there on how long Apple’s latest consumer desktop behemoth will last on UPS backup battery, how well the OSX works with such devices and how easy they are to set up. In short, […]

BioShock 2 Xbox 360 Review

Sunday, April 4th, 2010

I’ll come right out and say it, BioShock 2 is not as good as the original, and I could find many aspects about this particular sequel to pick holes in, but before doing that I would like to add that, despite its flaws and a disturbing tendency towards harbouring some weird message about parenthood, I […]

The JOBY gorillatorch is awesome

Thursday, April 1st, 2010

One of the folks representing JOBY dropped me a line out of the blue to big up the GorillaTorch, a light emitting cousin of the GorillaPod, and I couldn’t resist taking a look, if only to use it as an excuse to get my hands upon the legendary GorillaPod itself. Much to my surprise, however, […]
