GolfSense 3D Golf Swing Analyzer – the perfect gift for the invisible golfing dad in your family [Review]

True story – for seven years I worked in the golf industry and watched as the industry’s main manufacturers continually created new products to help improve play. Most were marketed as the newest, latest, and greatest products that were designed to help you knock strokes off of your game. But the industry’s dirty little secret was that most of it really didn’t matter. The key improvement needed by most golfers is simply the development of muscle memory.

Versus Touchtab 10.1 Inch Tablet – you paid HOW much for your Galaxy Tab? [Review]

Progress is a wonderful thing. Take computing for example. Just a scant few years ago we were all lugging around very heavy, cumbersome lunchbox computers which couldn’t compute their way out of a paper bag, and now look at us. Sneak a peek at your fellow coffee shop patrons next time you’re in for a check up, and chances are a good third of them will be doing some sort of tablet computer dance over their Latte with Sprinkles.

THL W100 – is this Quad Core, Jelly Bean phone at just $159 worth buying? Yep. [Review]

High end smartphones are all well and good, but not everyone has $700+ to drop on a mobile, even if it’s got more processing power than the space shuttle. For those on a budget the choice is limited when it comes to top spec handsets, unless you’re prepared to compromise in some way.

It’s not just the headline features which make this product so special, but the fact that Samsung is clearly willing to continue pushing the envelope in terms of experimental features and services.

Dolly by iStabilizer – keep your videos smooth and silky on a budget [Review]

Let’s face, even on your best day (especially before the first coffee) your hand is likely to be a touch shaky. Which means that trying to film something at 50X is going to produce a fair amount of image bounce. Sure you can go out and purchase a tripod, but why do that when you can buy a cool looking rolling robot mount?

RHA SA950i review – stylish do-anything headphones

I’m ashamed to say that I’m not really a fan of this style of over-the-ear outdoors headphone. In my opinion if you’re outside listening to music in all the noise and traffic why wouldn’t you isolate yourself from as much noise as possible with in-earphones? So with all that in mind, why am I reviewing these RHA SA950i headphones? Well to start with they look really good, and secondly because I was so impressed with the last earphones they sent…

Tinke Wellness Monitor – keep yourself in good shape with your thumb [Review]

Our lives are definitely too stressful. For example over the course of a morning I will typically drink 12 cups of coffee, tend to demanding child, and get screamed at by my boss. Some people might call this *stress*, but I just call it *my life* which is why I want to *retire* and live on an *island* all by *myself* (and maybe with a soccer ball named Hank).

R-Box Dual Core Android TV PC – add computing power and a camera to your TV for $65 [Review]

We admit to being a little fascinated by these tiny TV PCs…Android dongles which add computing and Internet power to your conventional flat screen television.
