Sunday, October 17th, 2010

With so many iPhone cases and so little time I’d like to introduce you to three iPhone 4 case offerings from XGear Live in one short, but sweet post.

iPad Case Review Round-up

Friday, June 11th, 2010

It’s been a busy month or so here at Gadgetoid, without even an iPad to call my own I began looking at iPad cases with the Proporta Maya II iPad Pouch Case and have since looked at a further 10 different iPad cases, with at least 4 more reviews still to come. From the best […]

APC BE700G UPS reviewed with 27″ iMac

Wednesday, May 12th, 2010

I’m taking a look at the APC BE700G UPS, using it with a 27″ iMac simply because there’s no good information out there on how long Apple’s latest consumer desktop behemoth will last on UPS backup battery, how well the OSX works with such devices and how easy they are to set up. In short, […]

BioShock 2 Xbox 360 Review

Sunday, April 4th, 2010

I’ll come right out and say it, BioShock 2 is not as good as the original, and I could find many aspects about this particular sequel to pick holes in, but before doing that I would like to add that, despite its flaws and a disturbing tendency towards harbouring some weird message about parenthood, I […]

The JOBY gorillatorch is awesome

Thursday, April 1st, 2010

One of the folks representing JOBY dropped me a line out of the blue to big up the GorillaTorch, a light emitting cousin of the GorillaPod, and I couldn’t resist taking a look, if only to use it as an excuse to get my hands upon the legendary GorillaPod itself. Much to my surprise, however, […]

Korg microSTATION

Wednesday, March 24th, 2010

Set to be available this May (2010) at a price which is yet to be confirmed, the Korg microSTATION is a new and decidedly less than “micro” addition to Korg’s Micro range. The keys may be mini, but there’s 61 of them over the microKORG’s 37, and you can be absolutely sure that they’ll be […]

The iPhone As An Educational Kids Toy

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2010

Have you upgraded to an iPhone 3Gs, or perhaps you’ll treat yourself to a 4th generation iPhone this year? Don’t trade in, sell, or give away that old iPhone. Why? It’s a powerful educational toy that could help prepare your child for the next era of personal computing, in addition to providing boundless educational and […]

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 […]
