[PAX East 2013] Powerhouse Gaming Laptops by ASUS & MSI – First Impressions

In the world of PC gaming, it is commonplace for your traditional PC gamer to have a rig that they built themselves. I still have mine, although it was built during the creation of Stonehenge. But how about your closed-quarters gamer looking for a desktop replacement? Not everyone has the space for a 500 key Razer keyboard with a game stats screen. So what do gamer-supporting computer companies consider a proper all-in-one gaming package? On...

Samsung Unpacks the Galaxy S4

Last night, Samsung unveiled their much anticipated S4 to the masses and the response is pretty mixed. It’s pretty clear that Samsung is continuing it’s all out assault on Apple. For the past year, Samsung’s targeted marketing campaigns aimed towards taking jabs at the iPhone and it’s users. There was no mistaking that Apple is their target and tonight was no exception. This time Samsung even brought a few other allies into the battle arena. But...

CES 2013: Samsung TecTile Programmable NFC Tags Review

In anticipation of tonight’s Samsung announcement, I thought it would be the perfect time to share my thoughts on the TecTile® Programmable NFC Tags which are now available. For those who might be unfamiliar with what NFC technology, NFC stands for “Near Field Communication” and it’s technology that is akin to bar or QR code scanning. Both can be programmed to do pretty basic tasks like sharing contact or product information while they can also...

Microsoft Surface Pro(s)…and Cons

Well, here it is. On Feb. 9th, Microsoft unleashed the Surface RT’s younger, fatter, heavier and faster brother for public consumption: The Surface Pro. I managed to snag one on release day because I’m kind of a crazy person when it comes to the gadgets that speak to my heart. When Microsoft announced the coming of the Surface Pro, it was a love connection. Now that I’ve had this device for a few weeks, I thought the...

Today, HTC unveiled it’s worst kept secret: The HTC One® or the M7 as it was referred to prior to it’s launch. I know, I know. Aren’t there other HTC phones with the One name? There sure are but we’ll have to get past the semantics to check out how this phone is poised to be the only device you’ll need in 2013. And why some of you might just dismiss it entirely.

Samsung GALAXY Camera 1

CES 2013: Samsung GALAXY Camera Review

Today, I continue the CES 2013 coverage with a review of the Samsung GALAXY Camera.  Hybrid cameras or even WiFi enabled cameras are the latest craze. Tablets and smartphones are becoming the primary photography device for most consumers, possibly thanks to apps like Instagram and Twitter. During CES, it was interesting to see Samsung come out with a high-end device that might be perfect for the most avid mobile photographer or videographer. If you’re curious to see...

But we’re only a few more days anyway till the event and I can’t wait to share everything from the event. Be sure to...

For the longest I have been wondering what the hell is up with the Beats by Dr. Dre™ headphones. I didn’t even realize that they made speakers too. I see the commercials. I see celebrities sporting them. I see them on the train. I even see the Beats logo on my phone. It’s freaking everywhere! So, what’s the deal? Are they really this amazing pair of headphones that would ultimately change my life? Is there...

CES 2013: Voxx International Corp Press Conference Highlights

On the same day as the Samsung press conference, we got to sit in during the Voxx International Corp. press conference where the mantra to “believe in less” was drilled into our heads. However, let’s be honest; when I come to any CES press conference, I don’t fully know what people are getting ready to unveil. The less I know, the better. During the press conference, Voxx announced a ton of new products for 2013...
