Full of Energi – TYLT Energi Charging Backpack Review

On our trip to Pax Prime, we had the chance to take this urban warrior’s utility pack through its paces. The TYLT Energi backpack is not just a bag that has specific compartments for any device or accessory you could imagine. It gets it’s name of Energi for its ability to charge up to three devices simultaneously and neatly through a well-planned cable management system. And just in case you need your NFC-capable phone to do perform...

Gaming in Glorious Surround Sound – Logitech G430 Gaming Headset Review

As you may or may not be aware, Logitech launched a campaign this year with the goal of unleashing aesthetically pleasing and a more varied line of gaming products for the PC. While many of the mainstay mice and keyboards received overhauls over the months, there was one thing that I did not keep track of and that was the line of gaming headphones. I regret that decision. Although Logitech did pump out a steady...

Switch to a Logitech G710+

I’ve been a fan of Logitech’s gaming series keyboards (“G Series”) since the release of the G15 in 2005 (which I still have in storage).  After owning it for a number of years, I replaced it with a mechanical gaming keyboard.  If you have never used a mechanical keyboard before, I highly suggest you give it a try.  I’m going to avoid going into the inner workings and boring details of key travel, actuations and...

[Review] Tylt Samsung Galaxy 3 Phone Cases

When you think about it, your Samsung Galaxy 3 is a rather expensive investment. Couple that money you spent on the S3 with a quick search on YouTube and you can get extremely afraid of what a single drop could do to your phone. At this year’s CES, we saw a ton of cell phone cases. Some were worried about making your phone looking shiny. Others were about protecting your cell phone but were extremely...

Your Own Private Cloud – Transporter

The calendar year is 2013. Cloud is all the rage and so is crowdfunding. I guess I shouldn’t have been surprised when a Kickstarter project like the Transporter came along but I was – very pleasantly. In the past, like many folks, I’ve depended solely on cloud storage providers like Dropbox, Google Drive and Skydrive. I’ve always managed to look past the privacy issues and the fee-based structure for these services (for additional storage) but...

[Review] Urbanears Bagis and Plattan

To say I review a lot of headphones would be a grave understatement. Like I have said countless times before, audio is key to any experience so it’s only natural that I would gravitate more towards trying out various headsets. Today, I introduce you, once again, to Urbanears; a line of headphones that are not only stylish but highly affordable. Today we take a deeper look into the Bagis and Plattan Headsets.

[CES 2013] MUNITIO NINES and SV Review

Company and product information were provided by MUNITIO’s official website, as well as images. Products were provided by MUNITIO for review consideration.   Back in January, merely minutes before we would be ushered out of a Las Vegas venue hall I spotted the MUNITIO booth. Usually during CES, if it’s anything audio related, I’m instantly drawn to it. It might be solely because I can’t let a day go by without music. Music drives my...

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...

Surface Pro

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...
