Sony WF-1000X True Wireless Noise-Cancelling Earbuds Review

Sony WF-1000X True Wireless Noise-Cancelling Earbuds Review
In the past couple years we’ve seen numerous electronic manufacturers dive into the new true wireless earbud market.

One of the newest well-known manufacturers that are in the […]

Omnicharge Omni 20 review: The one charger to rule them all?

Omnicharge Omni 20 review: The one charger to rule them all?
We’re at an interesting, and somewhat transitional time when it comes to what types of devices we’re carrying with us on a regular basis. Chances are good that you’re currently toting something today that has a different port than what your old device had. Further, you might even be carrying something entirely different in your […]

Leagoo KIICAA MIX: a bezel-less smartphone for the budget-minded (Review)
We’ve seen some intriguing smartphone innovations for the past year, but if there’s one product that attracted the attention of customers from across the globe, it would be the original Xioami Mi MIX.

YEVO 1 truly wireless earbuds – the best you can buy, but at a steep price

YEVO 1 truly wireless earbuds – the best you can buy, but at a steep price
Unboxing Yevo’s first foray into the truly wireless market – aptly if rather unoriginally dubbed the 1 – is a bit of an adventure.The box is black, textured – almost (but not quite) leather-feeling – with silver foil lettering and a folding flap concealing the goods. Under said flap is a plastic covering (which by the […]

Gear Up: Skinit offers another great skin and case option for the Galaxy Note 8
In a world of shiny glass phones and scratches galore, there are a few different options to consider to keep your device protected. While most everyone has already heard of dbrand and SlickWraps, some folks may not have heard of a company called Skinit. This company has been around for some time, but isn’t the […]

YEVO Companion App Review

YEVO Companion App Review
Yevo’s app – companion to the newly released Yevo 1 truly wireless earbuds – is a bit of a conundrum. It’s a simple app, with singular purpose, that’s plagued by over-design and needly complexity. Design I’m going to keep this short; the seven (!) horizontal pages of functionality in the app – Yevo 1, Battery, […]

Create interactive photos with DESCRIPIX

Sometimes you want to present a visual that has different ‘layers’ to it. While your main visual conveys on overall sense of understanding, there may be more nuanced details within the frame that you’d like to expand on. But, it can get confusing to continually switch between multiple frames to tell your story concisely. What […]

Mandagon: A short but captivating Tibetan adventure (Review)
After some really dark times in the Play Store, we are starting to see a big crop of games that focus on providing an unparalleled experience rather than being a platform built around microtransactions.

Fitbit Ionic review

Fitbit Ionic review
It’s becoming quite obvious as to why there are no major runaway hits for Android Wear. More specifically, it’s clear why there’s not one smartwatch that people simply “must have”. The reason? Fitbit and its ilk. I’ve had the pleasure of using various Fitbit wearables over the last few years. Moreover, I’ve also owned and […]

QardioBase 2 – a pricey but top-tier smart scale (Review)

QardioBase 2 – a pricey but top-tier smart scale (Review)
I’ve owned perhaps half a dozen scales in my lifetime; analog, digital, smart, you name it. My current daily use scale is the HTC-made Under Armour Scale, and I love it. It’s solidly made, convenient, full-featured, and fool-proof. The QardioBase 2 blows it – and all the ones before it – right away. Build   […]

BLU S1: First Impressions

BLU S1: First Impressions
The BLU S1 has gone official today in stores, but I’ve been fortunate to have had the last two weeks with the device. Since I intend to cover the device in-depth in an official review at a later time, my goal here is to give you some idea of what to expect when you get […]

Amazon Fire HD 8 (2017) review

Amazon Fire HD 8 (2017) review
The 2017 Amazon Fire HD 8 experience is perhaps the best tablet you’ll find in the sub-$100 price range. At only $80, it’s less expensive than last year’s take and yet features improved Wi-Fi and audio. Whereas only a few years back we might have recommend proceed with caution on a tablet that carries a […]

Tinycards is a powerful, but fun, flash card tutor (review)

Tinycards is a powerful, but fun, flash card tutor (review)
Flash cards don’t have the most “fun” reputation, am I right? The utterance of the term brings about the specter of a coming test; of hours or repetition in your bedroom….memorizing, guessing, and re-guessing until either you have the facts implanted in your brain, or you fall asleep on your bed. Either way, it’s not […]

Mekorama is Monument Valley without the gloom (review)

Most mobile devices owners are at least aware of an immensely popular game called Monument Valley. It’s a puzzle platformer; but that’s not what made it a standout. Instead what made it so unique was two main things: It’s very original visual scheme. It’s very deep/philosophical storyline. While the art & visuals were just fantastic […]
