Macally iPad mini Rotating Folio Case Review

Tuesday, February 19th, 2013

If, like me, you find yourself doing a lot of travelling, then you will know that finding the perfect case for your iPad mini is essential. The latest design from Macally may just be the perfect travel companion. The Rotating Folio case is lightweight, durable and comes with a little twist, literally. You may have […]

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 […]

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 […]

iLuv iMM747 Audio Cube for iPad/iPhone

Saturday, July 9th, 2011

Not in the least bit cubic, but providing a 10watt dock connector for juicing up your iPad, the iLuv iMM747 is a compact little speaker dock for your kitchen audio needs. Its punchy enough to take on other roles, too, but if you’re anything like me, you need some music to motivate you during the […]

iControlPad Review

Saturday, July 9th, 2011

I’ve had the iControlPad, a Bluetooth game controller for the iPhone, Android phones and other devices, for some time now and have thoroughly enjoyed catching up on my classic gaming favourites. Read on for an exhaustive review of its ins and outs. After waiting years for the Pandora, and continuing to wait with unwavering patience, […]

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 […]
