Griffin Beacon for Android @ TestFreaks
     Thu, Mar 08 2012 | 11:59A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I have too many remotes, I?ve got seven of them for my home theater system, that?s just too many and it can get confusing at times. I need a universal remote, but I?ve yet to find one that works with everything I own. Today for review I have a product from Griffin called the Beacon and it?s basically a universal remote, but it works with Android devices. Yes you can control your TV, Cable or Blu-ray player with your phone or tablet. It sounds like a great idea in theory, but is it a great product? I have to say I?m leaning towards yes, but it?s not quite perfect yet? "

Satechi SCH-121 Cup Holder Mount for Smartphones & Tablets @ TestFreaks
     Mon, Mar 05 2012 | 4:06P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Up for review today I have a combination product from Satechi called the SCH-121 which is a dual mount for both phones and tablet for your car that fits into most any size and shape cup holder in your car. It comes with an arm style mount and then two holders, one for the phone and one for a tablet and they can fit most any size phone or tablet safely and securely. It?s a neat little product for sure, but is it really useful or safe? Read on to learn more? "

Samsung Galaxy Nexus Review @ Tech-Reviews.co.uk
     Tue, Feb 28 2012 | 1:01P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We`ve got the Samsung Galaxy Nexus to review today. It features a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, which is capable of PC-like performance in your hand. The included 5MP camera is also capable of taking ultra-quick snaps, panoramic photos and shooting HD videos. All of this technology is situated behind the amazing 4.65-inch HD Super AMOLED screen. Let`s take a closer look.* *"

It's Kristofer from DragonSteelMods
     Tue, Feb 28 2012 | 9:03A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I don’t know about you, but my phones and mostly all of my gadgets must have cases on them. I paid quite a bit of money for these things and as we all know, accidents happen. No matter how careful we are with our stuff, things can happen out of our control that can quickly turn our devices into useless junk. I’ve got an HTC Titan Windows Phone and it’s nice, and it’s expensive and it needs protection so today for review I’ve got the HTC HC C652 Hard Case with Kickstand for the Titan. This case is meant to protect the Titan from bumps and drops and scrapes but it also has a built-in kickstand for your viewing pleasures.

CPU Idling Problem In The Apple iPhone 4S? (This Stupid App Doesn?t Work!) Rev. 2.1
     Sun, Feb 26 2012 | 5:34P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Apple iPhone 4S might be a small upgrade if you were using the iPhone 4, but it is a huge upgrade if you are upgrading from the iPhone 3GS, as I was. Not only was the screen much sharper (albeit still the same size!), the iPhone 4S was much faster. Unfortunately, I also immediately noticed a big problem with the iPhone 4S - its terrible battery life. Recently, my brother pointed me to a very nice app called System Monitor with Battery Max. It`s a 99 cent app that allows you to monitor the hardware and software of your iDevice. What`s really nifty about it was it was able to give me a live read of the iPhone 4S` CPU load. What we found shocked us - the Apple iPhone 4S had a constantly high CPU load even when it idles! DO NOT BUY THE APP. Please check out this critical update : - Added results for the Apple iPad 2. - Added more details about this app`s failure to account for the extra processing core in the Apple A5 processor."

ASUS Transformer Prime Review
     Thu, Feb 02 2012 | 9:01A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ever since the first Android tablets arrived a year or two ago things have been developing fast. ODMs and chip designers jumped onto the bandwagon fast as PC sales are declining, and much like the initial netbook market, the tablet market is on the rise. We test the The quad-core Tegra 3 based Eee Pad Transformer Prime, an unbelievable product. Fast, thin and huge in specs, but sure... very expensive. Read the article right here.

how to get the most out of Siri on the iPhone
     Thu, Jan 26 2012 | 12:00P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
PC Review has a comprehensive article on how to get the most out of Siri on the iPhone 4S. It includes usage examples for all compatible apps as well as some tips you may not have known: "There are a huge range of tasks that Siri can help with, and although it is still in beta (as of January 2012) Siri could change how we use our mobile devices forever. Whilst we are all used to speaking to other people on the phone, having a conversation with your phone can be an alien concept. The attitude that a lot of people have is “why use Siri when you can simply type in the information / query etc yourself?”. Hopefully this guide will inspire and encourage a change in the way you use your iPhone 4S."

Posted by: STAFF
We have just posted up our much-delayed 14th App Pick of the Week and this time it blends a gaming app with a creative app.  We picked the Origami Tutorial App as our pick of the week and explore paper folding on an Android device.  It may seem a bit odd at first, but it`s a great way to learn a new skill that you can use on analog paper."

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
