Oberon Design iPad 3 Artisan Leather Case Review

Saturday, September 1st, 2012

I’ve tried a lot of iPad cases in my time, but I always ultimately come back to the thick, durable and distinctive cases from Oberon. Sadly the fluctuating thickness of the iPad in each of its incarnations has rendered my original, favourite iPad 1 Oberon case somewhat loose for the sleeker iPad 3. Fortunately I’ve […]

Microlab H21 Bluetooth Bookshelf Speakers

Saturday, August 11th, 2012

Bookshelf speakers are an oft overlooked home-entertainment addition, perhaps because bookshelves are a dying breed, or are always crammed with the latest videogame releases. But the bookshelf form-factor is a great, multi-purpose alternative to an MP3 player dock and makes for a tidy, attractive desktop speaker solution, too, if you prefer to deliver your audio […]

Yet Another Mobile Game Controller

Wednesday, March 14th, 2012

Joining the ranks of many other mobile game controllers, which have followed in the success of the iControlPad, the Evolution Controllers Arduino based DRONE™ controller has crept up on us along with an accompanying KickStarer project aiming to secure the $60,000 needed for injection moulds, manufacture and testing. It is, by far, the prettiest such […]

Otone Aporto USB/Battery Powered 2.0 Speaker Review

Monday, January 30th, 2012

I’ve never been a huge fan of portable speakers, this is probably because they’re traditionally quite awful. The Otone Aporto, however, combines reasonably decent sound with a quirky transforming trick. Its creator, Otone Audio, is a home-grown rising star in the audio world, headquartered in Manchester. They’re a relatively new and largely unknown company who […]

Snugg Leather iPad 2 Case Reviewed

Saturday, October 8th, 2011

Leather cases for the iPad 2 aren’t exactly hard to come by, but they’re not all perfect. The ideal case is a combination of good looks, handy features and all-round protection, and the leather iPad 2 case from ticks all the boxes. First off, it comes in black leather, accented with white machine stitching. […]

Three Huawei E586 High-Speed Mobile Broadband Router Reviewed

Thursday, October 6th, 2011

Ever since I first reviewed the Novatel MiFi 2352 I’ve been evangelising mobile broadband routers to everyone who’ll listen. And for a good reason, too; they’re awesome. Why? Well, rather than buy a 3G version of, for example, an iPad; you can buy a mobile router and share its connection with every WiFi-enabled device you […]

iLuv iCK826 Bluetooth Keyboard Case For iPad 2

Wednesday, October 5th, 2011

Before even the first iPad landed, back when Netbooks were still the thing to have, I remember remarking that a keyboard-case would be a great addition to Apple’s upcoming tablet. It’s not until now that I’ve actually got my hands on one and I find it, in all honesty, somewhat of a mix between a […]

Native Union POP Phone iPhone 4 Headset Reviewed

Thursday, September 1st, 2011

In the race to create the most hilariously unnecessary but somehow strangely cool product, Native Union are out in the lead with the POP Phone; a phone-shaped headset ( actually, it’s more a handset! ) for the iPhone 4 and other supported devices. Designed by David Turpin, it’s certainly not the first product of its […]

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. […]

ABC PocketPhonics for iPad Review

Tuesday, July 12th, 2011

It’s no secret that the iPad is a brilliant educational tool. But it’s only as good as the software you run on it. It should come as no surprise, then, that the educational software market for the iPad is growing, and is already diverse and competitive. I’m constantly keeping an eye out for educational software […]
