Proporta Working On New Apple iPad Cases

Saturday, January 30th, 2010

No sooner than one day after I speculated that Proporta would be working on an aluminium reinforced case for the iPad they sent me an email confirming exactly that. They’ve added a spate of products to their iPad lineup, including 3 iPad cases. The Aluminium Lined Apple iPad Case from Proporta is a sure-fire winner […]

Apple iPad

Saturday, January 30th, 2010

The Apple iPad was a fairly predictable announcement, perhaps one of the most anticipated in the history of Apple but what many expected to be a revolutionary device is, at first glance, only evolutionary and not only resembles a giant iPod Touch but makes no effort to claim otherwise. Indeed, that’s exactly what the iPad […]

Proporta Maya Leather Style Apple iPad Case

Thursday, January 28th, 2010

The dust from the announcement of Apple’s iPad is still settling and, as usual, people are separating into love-it and hate-it camps with an extraordinary level of separation. Sure, there’s probably more indifference out there than there are lovers or haters, but they’re keeping quiet about it. If you’re dreaming of grasping an iPad and […]

Wild Charger Wireless Charging Pad Review

Wednesday, January 20th, 2010

Wireless chargers are coming thick and fast as a forefront to a possible revolution in charging and power distribution. The ultimate goal, of course, is for every device to have wireless charging integrated, and your desk, tables and other furniture to have distribution systems to keep everything charged no matter where you might carelessly leave […]

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves Review

Sunday, January 17th, 2010

It’s not often that I sit down and blast through a game, thoroughly enjoying it every step of the way. Uncharted 2 has been one of those rare occasions, however, remaining gripping at every step, avoiding pesky loading screens, and dishing out near perfect, seamless, cinematically sound action gaming which is impossible to put down. […]

Samsung Genio Touch Review

Sunday, January 17th, 2010

It’s clear that the feature phone market is still dead-set on emulating the cutting edge that is smartphones. The Genio Touch, as demonstrated by its name, is a touch sensitive phone that endeavours to be as much like its bigger brothers as possible without becoming unnecessarily expensive or, even, evolving any features you wouldn’t ordinarily […]

Proporta Leather Memory Wallet Review

Sunday, January 17th, 2010

Is your life overtaken with SD-card scoffing gadgets? Do you need a place to keep those spare SD cards safe, cozy and warm? Well the Proporta Leather Memory Wallet could be the ultimate wallet replacement for you. Could be. Unfortunately it doesn’t work so well as a wallet. See you over the fold to find […]

Mad Catz Cyborg Premium Gaming Mice

Wednesday, January 6th, 2010

Taking the well-known Saitek brand to the next level, Mad Catz have finally demonstrated their embodiment of the very spirit of Saitek battleship-build gaming peripherals with the Cyborg R.A.T. series. These are truly groundbreaking mice, but their responsiveness could make or break them no matter how good the adjustable technology is.

And the winner is…

In December we ran a competition to win a signed Left 4 Dead 2 tshirt. Thank you all for your entries, there were some rather amusing and original campaign name ideas. After careful deliberation, we’ve chosen a winner…

Parallels Desktop 5 First Impressions Review

Friday, January 1st, 2010

I finally braved the upgrade to Parallels 5 and found it far less painful than I expected. It’s faster, more compatible and generally better than its predecessor and I’d wager most upgraders will see the difference quite soon after taking the plunge. The upgrade process from 4 was simple enough, requiring no scary disk conversion […]
