With every passing decade, technology continues to grow by leaps and bounds. Still, there's something to be said about adding some old-school cool to new stuff. Check out my review of the Grovemade bamboo and wood case for the iPhone to see what I mean.
For all the talk about smartphones and tablets usurping portable gaming devices and even standalone video game consoles, there's still one issue that continues to hold them back — at least for hardcore gamers such as myself: the controls. I take a look at a wireless controller that tries to rectify that situation on the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch in my SteelSeries Stratus wireless iOS controller review.
Two-timing usually isn't a good thing. Unless you're talking about dual USB drives. Then it's called multitasking, which is a good thing. Check out my Leef Bridge Dual USB Drive review, for example. To recap, the moral of this story is: two timing with your USB thumb drive is good, two-timing with your relationships is bad. Just ask Tiger Woods.
Traveling is nice and all, but it usually involves some compromises. From the dangerous dance of keeping your pants on while taking off your belt at the security line to foregoing the comforts of home on the road, traveling typically means making a choice between what to take and what to leave behind. This includes handy dandy gadgets like a humidifier. I take a look at one in my Satechi USB Portable Humidifier review.
In the rabid race for smartphone supremacy, every competitor tries to get ahead of the curve. Although that's something that's usually done figuratively, LG literally took that mindset to heart with its new G Flex by releasing, yep, a curved phablet. Check out my LG G Flex review for the details.
Remember the saying "If it ain't broke, don't fix it?'" When I last reviewed the Performance Designed Product's Afterglow wireless headset, I gave it pretty high marks for its excellent audio performance, universal application across various systems, and cost in comparison to other gaming headsets. Fast forward to the here and now and PDP has released an update to the Afterglow with its Prismatic headset. Is it better than the original? Read my PDP Afterglow Prismatic Wireless Gaming Headset review for the details.
Portable speakers are usually like a bite of generic candy from the grocery store. They're great to satisfy a quick craving but aren't exactly filling. Although most small speakers are light on sound and features, however, there are some that try to go the extra mile by offering plenty of extras. One such device is the Braven BRV-1 portable outdoor speaker. Are all those extras enough to justify a purchase? Read my review of the Braven BRV-1 wireless rugged speaker to find out.
Ah, yes, football, a word that can be pretty charged depending on how you use it and where. For example, the first time I saw the official EA Sports Football Club wired controller from PDP, I honestly thought it was a special controller for EA's line of Madden football games. Then I saw the familiar black and white markings typically associated with a different brand of football. For more about this, uh, "soccer" controller, read my review of the official EA Sports Football Club wired controller from PDP.
It seems that everytime I attend a business conference of some sort, the number of people I see using iPads in place of netbooks or laptop computers continues to expand beyond the good, old pretentious hipsters to include regular folks. For a typing option on the go, check out my review of the Rapoo E600 wireless Bluetooth keyboard.
So you're feeling high as a kite after figuring out how to take a screenshot with your LG G Flex of that tiny, little fireball Justin Bieber. Maybe you even learned how to add or remove apps from your LG G Flex to boot. Now you want to know how to access the phone's SIM card. No worries, it's actually easier than you think. For the lowdown, check out my LG G Flex SIM card tutorial.
