LifeProof iPhone 4/4S Case Review @ TestFreaks
     Sun, Sep 23 2012 | 10:28A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the past using an all-encompassing protective iPhone cases meant sacrificing the sleek Apple aesthetic for a larger cases such as an Otterbox Defender. In the past cases designed to protect from more severe hazards tended to be bulky. Todays review item helps change that by allowing your iPhone to face water, dust, snow and shock all in a svelte housing."

Apple iOS 6 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Fri, Sep 21 2012 | 5:56P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Apple`s latest iOS 6 isn`t as game-changing as previous versions, but it adds numerous features, such as a new Passbook app, a revamped Maps app, and new accessibility options that make it a must-have download if you own a compatible device. But some features aren`t available on all devices either due to hardware limitations or because they`re specific to iPhones or iPod touches."

Traveling with an iPad
     Sun, Sep 16 2012 | 9:00A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I’m no different than most when it comes to computer use. I have a primary desktop system I use at home and when the need arises, I carry a notebook with me when traveling. I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t travel too frequently and when I do, it’s usually for business purposes like covering a trade show. But as tablets become more popular and continue to chip away at the mobile computing market, the idea of leaving the notebook behind in favor of a slate certainly seems attractive. On the pros side you have portability, instant-on capabilities, longer battery life, a touchscreen, and in the case of most modern tablets like the iPad 3, an HD video camera.

Optimus L7 and Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus review
     Sat, Sep 15 2012 | 9:03A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The LG Optimus L7 and the Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus are two very different-looking phones that are built with many of the same components. In terms of looks and features LG is the winner. The L7 has a nicer screen, Android 4.0, NFC and looks better in our opinion. The problem with the LG phone is that the hardware isn't on the same level as its looks. The Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus might not be as stylish, lacks ICS and NFC, and has a lower-resolution screen, but in the end that's a better combination than the LG Optimus L7. The entry-level SoC makes more sense here than in the LG phone.

AviiQ Portable Charging Station Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Fri, Sep 14 2012 | 3:57P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We travelers carry with us a growing number of devices that charge via USB: phones, tablets, cameras, and more. While devices are solid, easily stored objects, their power cords and wall adapters are nebulous masses of frustration at the bottom of a backpack! The Aviiq Portable Charging Station aims to address this problem by providing a neat carrying case with a removable, four port USB power hub. It provides spools for cables and lays them in such a way that removing them isnt wholly necessary. ThinkComputers has the review."

Patriot Gauntlet Node Wi-Fi Storage Enclosure
     Fri, Sep 14 2012 | 9:01A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are a couple of inconveniences of modern connected living that Patriot Memory is trying to address with a product called the Gauntlet Node. One is the problem of storage; the only computer or mobile device we have--and you know that we have quite a few--that isn’t constantly running out of local storage, is your big desktop system. Whether it’s due to our packrat-like tendencies, our prolific shutterbugging, our library of music and movies, or the need to maintain secure backups of all of it, file storage is a nagging problem. The Gauntlet Node is a wireless hard drive enclosure that offers a possible solution to both problems; it’s a self-contained portable media server that supports bulk storage (hard drives and SSDs) and can stream via WiFi to up to 8 devices simultaneously.

Avatar S Gaming Mouse Review
     Thu, Sep 13 2012 | 3:26P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gaming mice can be expensive, though, and it really sucks to purchase an expensive mouse just to find out it wasn’t as good as you thought. The Avatar S mouse has been out for a while, but still holds strong because it is one of the cheapest gaming-grade mice you can find.

Pivos XIOS DS Media Play! Network Media Player Review
     Mon, Sep 10 2012 | 9:28A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When i first started testing and reviewing hardware media players roughly 5 year ago Plasma and LCD screens were quite simple (just taking their first steps actually) without the plethora of features one can find now even at mid-end, low cost models. Amongst those features are built in hardware media players which i was surprised to see that they are not that bad in reproducing Full HD 1080p media content with quite good image quality. Of course as always the key players/manufacturers in the industry keep introducing new features so they can make their products more appealing to consumers but we always need to remember that one of their main goals is always to reduce the cost of their products (to increase profit) and so one can never really compare one of these low cost internal hardware media players with a retail model like the XIOS DS Media Play! by Pivos which we have here with us today since the differences in specs are quite honestly somewhat vast."
