Logitech G19 Keyboard Review

Thursday, June 18th, 2009

Ever since the tragic-looking G11 which I couldn’t even muster the effort to shrug at, Logitech have been soldiering on, taking strictly evolutionary steps in an apparent effort to make a keyboard, the functionality of which could replace your computer entirely. The G15 was a much sleeker and thoroughly more attractive step in the right […]

iPhone 3G Protective DomeSkin

Thursday, June 18th, 2009

Do you remember the days when interchangeable face-plates and casing on phones was all the rage? These days, everything from dinky feature phones to behemoth smart-phones flatly refuses to be defaced with cheap market-stall *bling*, but not all is lost. The world of device skinning has exploded into a wealth of online sites. They all […]

Proporta Universal Emergency Travel Charger

Monday, June 15th, 2009

I’ve been using the Proporta Universal Emergency Travel Charger on the odd occasion for a while now. It was a difficult device to actually test in the short run, because you don’t really know if it fits the bill until you have an emergency I-really-need-to-charge-this situation. I didn’t quite get there, but managed to try […]

Proporta DVD/Netbook Case Reviewed

Monday, June 15th, 2009

I’ve thus far resisted the temptation to pick up a portable DVD player favoring, instead, a humble, hand-holdable PMP to pacify a bored, car-bound baby. I picked up the Proporta DVD/Netbook case after seeing it in the results for Samsung NC10 cases, alas it doesn’t actually fit the Samsung NC10 nor any other 10″ Netbook […]

Dynasty Warriors Gundam 2 – Xbox 360

Friday, June 12th, 2009

Review by Johnus Maximus Giant robots, hormonally challenged teenagers and voice acting so ridiculous you can’t help but laugh. Yes, it can only mean one thing – Dynasty Warriors Gundam 2, developed by Koei and Omega Force and published by Namco Bandai Games, has arrived! This is a hack’n’slash game which uses the game mechanic […]

Dingoo A320 Review

Saturday, June 6th, 2009

Having put my money down to secure a Pandora I’m finally commited to the inevitable but hopefully short wait for the console to be tweaked, finalised, approved and shipped. To pass the time and feed my hunger for some open source console goodness I decided to try and get my hands on a fresh face […]

Sky HD And Multiroom First Impressions

Thursday, June 4th, 2009

It hadn’t occurred to me until recently that I could leverage my humble journalistic position to obtain a Sky HD box to sample the service. I have been watching the price since its release, but could never really quite justify taking the plunge, partially because I was highly sceptical of the picture quality. Now the […]

Pandora Cube

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2009

Craigix has posted a very highly debated and controversial poll on the gp32x forums asking if a Pandora “Cube”, a headless, non portable version of the Pandora much like an HTPC or games console, would be a worthwhile pursuit. The topic is controversial because many people who have “invested” their time and money into the […]

Most Complete Pandora Photos Yet

Monday, June 1st, 2009

CraigIX has posted the most complete pictures of the Pandora yet. Although it’s still clad in a prototype CNC case this particular Pandora is actually in a fetching black, as opposed to the white stress-line-revealing getup of previous assembled units. There are more pictures and, of course, much discussion available in the thread. Edit: Given […]
