Just Mobile AluPen Stylus For iPad And Other Tablets

Wednesday, June 29th, 2011

I tried a couple of iPad stylii a while back and found them to be, to spare a string of verbal abuse, lacking. They required too much pressure and were far too grippy against the iPad screen. They were ugly too, but form follows function… or lack thereof… so that’s really a moot point. My […]

i-Luv Smart Case Back Cover Review

Monday, June 27th, 2011

When I saw the Apple Smart Cover, the first thing I said was, naturally, “Ooo, I want one of those.” This was closely followed by “And a back cover for it, too.” Fortunately, I was not alone in this sentiment, and savvy case manufacturers have picked up on the desire for iPad 2 rear protection. […]

Tuff-Luv Marrakesh iPad 2 Case

Monday, June 27th, 2011

With its slick, minimalistic and environmentally friendly packaging, that invites you upon a tour of the product itself and permits access to its various functions, and the sheer detail and functionality of this case, you’d be forgiven for thinking that it’s a prohibitively expensive, hand-made case of European origin. But, in fact, Tuff-Luv manufacture their […]

Child of Eden – Xbox 360 review

Saturday, June 25th, 2011

Review by John Cranston In the 23rd century humanity moves freely amongst the stars, it’s collective memories now stored in a vast network known as Eden. Scientists attempt to introduce Lumi, an artificial intelligence construct, to this database but inadvertently unleash a virus which attacks the memories held within Eden. It’s your job to dive […]

Virgin Media TiVo Photo Extravaganza

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2011

Yes, I’ve been exhaustively reviewing Virgin Media’s new TiVo lately, and forsaking all else. All this tireless and diligent watching of TV is done for you, dear reader. Jokes aside, I’ve got 65 lovely photos of the Virgin Media TiVo remote, the box itself and the overwhelmingly red ( but pretty, in my humble opinion […]

Virgin Media TiVo 500GB vs 1TB

Tuesday, June 21st, 2011

Update: The TiVo price has been dropped to £99.95 for existing customers (I believe those who have bought at the higher price also get a refund). The extra £3 and XL TV package required are still going to sting a little, but this is a much more realistic price gap between the 500GB and 1TB. […]

Virgin Media TiVo First Impressions

Monday, June 20th, 2011

if you’re a Virgin Media customer, you’ve probably already been irritated by a pop up box extolling the virtues of their shiny new TiVo box. With Sky and Virgin having provided us satellite and cable DVRs for years, you’d be forgiven for wondering why you should bother with the TiVo which, at a glance, appears […]

Mivizu Sense Leather iPad 2 Case

Thursday, June 16th, 2011

I haven’t exactly been keeping up with iPad 2 cases, a shame in light of the wealth of products I tried out for the original iPad. But I’m trying to remedy that slowly but surely. The Mivizu Sense is a leather case for the iPad 2 which borrows heavily from Apple’s official case, sporting a […]

Foof-Bag Sleeve for 13″ MacBook Pro Reviewed

Sunday, June 12th, 2011

It’s difficult to put the aura surrounding the Foof-Bag into words, but I’ll give it a shot. It’s a curious case, stepping away from traditional looks to give something that could easily be mistaken for an item of clothing or a cozy hat. Indeed, the Foof-Bag takes human-clothing levels of comfort, and applies them to […]
