Proporta Maya Camera Case

Tuesday, June 30th, 2009

In a surprising, but really rather pretty fushion of the design cues of their Maya and Perfora range of cases, Proporta have produced a digital camera case. It blends the diagonal-stripe of the Maya line, with the perforated leather of the Perfora cases, producing something that compliments both but really tops them in terms of […]

Open Pandora Creeping Toward Production

EvilDragon, the voice of sanity and reason from the Pandora Project, has posted yet another blog update to keep us slathering, news hungry pre-order customers happy.

Sky HD on the InFocus X9

Monday, June 29th, 2009

I’ve been continually skeptical of Sky HD, at least I was until I actually had it installed and tried it for myself. Far from my impressions of heavily compressed, “muddy”, not-quite HD content. The 720p HD-ready content available via Sky HD looks stunning on my 1080p, 40″ Bravia. However, despite not being “true” high definition, […]

Razer Sphex “Gaming Surface” Review

Monday, June 29th, 2009

Just in case you’re wondering exactly what a “gaming surface” is, it’s a fancy term for gaming mouse-mat. No mouse mat could be more deserving of such a fancy term than the Sphex, however. Named after a genus of wasp, “Sphex” implies that any gamer with it stuck firmly to their desk will dominate their […]

SiRF III Bluetooth GPS Receiver From

Saturday, June 27th, 2009

When you often arrive at what feels like it could be the very best of a product class, and don’t have the time to compare alternatives you must draw on experience with similar gadgets to gauge quality and performance. Being one man with too few fingers in too many pies I often find myself at […]

13″ MacBook Pro

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2009

Upon hearing the 13″ MacBook Pro announcement my initial response was “SD CARD SLOT!” It was also my second, third and forth response. Like many others who keep their nose to the ground and their eye on the horizon where the Apple Rumor Mill stands proud, its mighty sails ever turning and constantly … sorry, […]

Sena Corsa Designer Case For iPhone 3G Review

Monday, June 22nd, 2009

With the iPhone 3GS on the horizon, and no significant external design changes I figure it’s a good time for another round of accessory reviews. I’ve no plans to grab an iPhone 3GS, so at the moment I’ll have keep my eye on cases and accessories compatible with both devices. Fortunately the iPhone 3GS is […]

Sennheiser CX550 Style II In-Ear Earphones

Monday, June 22nd, 2009

Review by Rob Farley The Sennheiser CX550 Style II earphones are your typical, in-ear, noise blocking affair. These noise blocking, sound producing earplugs are loved by as many as they are hated and their form factor is as close as you can get to the Marmite of ‘phones. Most of the “hate it” camp, however, […]

Proporta Maya Leather Style iPhone 3G Case

Monday, June 22nd, 2009

Yes, it’s yet another iPhone 3G case review. This time it’s a slip style case which comes in an array of colours (and sizes, if you want a Maya case for a device other than the iPhone 3G) with two coloured, diagonal stripes to add interest.

FUEL – Xbox 360

Saturday, June 20th, 2009

Review by Johnus Maximus In an alternate present where global warming ravages our world, society has retreated to safety and shunned the use of fossil fuels. An underground racing circuit arises where brave drivers compete against each other, the landscape and the ferocity of Mother Nature herself. This is the premise of FUEL, the newest […]
