5 Retro Gaming Gifts For The Computer Nerd

Saturday, November 12th, 2016

I’ve compiled a short list of retro gaming gadgety goodness for that special basement dweller in your family. Hey, that’s not an offensive term; I only wish I had a basement to dwell in! This year we’re spoiled for choice. I suppose we usually are. But this year is special. The hobby electronics market has […]

MagneCube Magnetic Puzzle

Saturday, May 19th, 2012

By now you’ve probably heard of BuckyBalls, and perhaps even Zen Magnets and NeoCube. They’re all the same thing; sets of small 5mm magnetic balls which attract together in a variety of combinations. Most of these are either sold primarily in the US, or at quite expensive prices which would turn the ordinary buyer ( […]

Stickems Gadget Screen Cleaners

Saturday, March 31st, 2012

Ever since the proliferation of touch based input, Smartphone and tablet screens have been terrible fingerprint magnets and that grime quickly becomes an incumbent nuisance that even a sleeve can’t cope with. Enter microfiber cloths, you’ve probably used one, and you may even keep one handy. But it’s safe to assume you probably don’t, and […]

From Snega2USB To Retrode 2: A Comprehensive History

Tuesday, January 31st, 2012

Playing vintage games, such as those from the steeped-in-nostalgia Master System, Megadrive, NES and SNES days, has always been somewhat of a legal minefield. ROM downloads, as abandoned as those old games may seem, are frowned upon both by the companies who once sold those games, and the enthusiast communities who still enjoy playing them. […]

Scarab Multi-Tools Keyring

Thursday, November 24th, 2011

As Christmas draws close, the search for gifts begins and gadget bloggers turn their attention to shameless traffic grasping by spouting out more Christmas gift lists than you could shake a candy-cane at. I’m no exception, and have been reaching out into the gadgetosphere for all things shiny and gift-like to cast my eye over. […]

Solwise 183n Battery Powered 3G Router Review

Saturday, July 16th, 2011

A while back I took a look at the MiFi 2352. Since then, the idea of a mobile 3G WiFi hotspot has become widespread, with carriers offering various solutions. However, none of these solutions really represent a proper 3G “router” and are, for the most part, fairly dumb access points with very limited enterprise functionality. […]

Alienware Orion Backpack Review

Sunday, September 19th, 2010

The astute Gadgetoid reader will notice that my search for the ultimate gadget bag has been slow but ongoing. Most of what I’ve looked at thus far has been centered around a 13-15″ laptop, but the Alienware Orion Backpack is different. Those who have, for some reason, owned a ridiculously excessive Alienware Laptop (although to […]

Proporta Maya and Hard Digital Camera Cases Video Review

Thursday, February 25th, 2010

Whilst watching import jobs tick over slowly but surely, and waiting for my Samsung U10 video review to up load, I took some time to give you a glimpse at the Proporta Maya Camera Case and Proporta Protective Hard Camera Case, both of which are pretty good offerings for pretty different usage cases.

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 […]

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 […]
