Netatmo Urban Weather Station – the climate nerd gadget for Apple lovers [Review]

Chances are you have a grandpa/father/uncle that watches The Weather Channel for endless hours. They forget that it is used for snippets of information on the environment and choose to make it a integral portion of the daily entertainment. If you happen to be visiting them you may get caught up in an endless loop of small tidbits of weather conditions with promises of future forecasts. It’s boring, it’s tedious, it’s un-informative and makes you want to jump off a…

Lightspeed iHelicopter – the most fun you can have with your smartphone ever [Review]

You can use your phone for ever such a lot of things, but we bet you’ll not find anything which is as much fun as flying your very own remote controlled helicopter. Well, actually when we say fly, what we really mean is lurch around trying desperately not to hit pieces of furniture or crash through nearby windows.

WiFi Protector – easy instant protection from wireless hackers [Freeware]

You don’t have to look far to find lots of horror stories about ID theft, phishing and malware attacks on unsuspecting WiFi users. Sure, some of them are designed to generate more cash for the security business, but that doesn’t alter the fact that it’s generally a pretty hostile place out there if you’re not careful. Current solutions typically involve the installation of various complicated programs to protect your computer, but up till now there hasn’t been a really comprehensive…

Liquid Armor – hardcore phone screen protection from a simple nano spray [Review]

These glorious big touchscreens on the latest smartphones are all well and good, but they create a huge problem. How do you keep them safe and clean in every day use? For most of us, that means buying kludgy plastic screen protectors or cases, and laboriously fitting them to our phones in the hopes of keeping the damage away as much as possible. But we recently tested an interesting new product which seems to offer a really good alternative, without…

Easy-Macro – the ultra convenient and blindingly clever cell phone lens [Review]

Sometimes the simplest solution is the best, and when it comes to high technology it’s surprising how often that proves to be the truth. Take camera phones, for example. They’ve been around a long time now, and every year people introduce new products and gadgets to extend their value, most of which are either boring (oh look another iPhone case) or too complicated for their own good. But now and again, thankfully, we get something which is brilliant, simple and…

We take a look at two current leading examples of the new wave of tiny computers to see if either of them are worth buying for everyday use as a media center in the living room. The Raspberry Pi created a huge stir when it launched, and with good reason. The $25 tiny computer immediately grabbed people’s imagination because of its price, feature set, and above all, the lofty goal of offering a cheap and powerful educational tool for kids…

NeverLate for Android puts an end to missed appointments [Review]

One of the problems of living a high speed lifestyle is we often get caught out by circumstances beyond our control, which throw our carefully laid plans into chaos. Take car travel for instance, a process full of scheduling dangers. How many times have you been caught out by a sudden traffic jam on the way to the airport, or nearly missed a vital interview because of roadworks or obstructions on the freeway?

Unotelly is the global entertainment system we’d all enjoy if it wasn’t for the lawyers

The world is full of great entertainment, music, television, movies, games. You name it and someone somewhere has put it together for our enjoyment. The one massive obstacle to our participation in this fun fest is the army of lawyers and accountants currently blocking all attempts to allow unfettered access to the content, in order to protect their fading business models. And this is not about piracy, it doesn’t even matter if you’re happy to pay, they still won’t let you.

Ruetasomn Review – trying To Take A Chill Pill

About two months ago, I had seen for the first time something called Ruetaesomn. This is a pill that you take two to four hours before bed, and it is supposed to help you decaffeinate your system to help you get to sleep. It is plant-based, non-drowsy, and non-habit forming. I wasn’t too keen on the idea, but after being given a trial-sample, I thought I’d give it a go.

There are few things more boring in tech than computer keyboards, right? Dull, grey clacky products which typically feature all the charisma of a dead halibut. However every now and then we’re surprised by one of these things, at which point we sit up and take notice, which is what happened with this impressive and versatile new Bluetooth keyboard.

Kingsoft PC Doctor turbocharges your computer’s performance…in a safe way [Freeware]

The fact that there’s a ton of programs out there to improve the performance of Windows computers says a lot about the resilience of the modern PC. As we all know, using a Windows machine is rather like running a marathon. Sooner or later your computer hits a performance wall, the speed drops dramatically and you end up scanning the adverts for a replacement machine in desperation. But often there’s no need to upgrade, all you need is a tune up…a…

Biolite Stove review – Hands on with the camping stove for gadget lovers

The Biolite Stove caused quite a stir when it was first prototyped back in 2010 and so it should. How many devices can tie together a wood-burning stove with a fan and a USB port? Well the good news is, Biolite have gone into production and are now shipping the stoves. Mine arrived last week and so I’ve been camping out on my deck putting the stove through its paces.

Like FM powers your music discovery with Pinterest elegance and YouTube videos

When the history books are finally written about the evolution of music in century 21, the major feature that will hold the historians spellbound is how swiftly popular music moved from being a strictly controlled, media manipulated fiefdom, to a digital free for all, curated by the global crowd. The other surprise is likely to be how much influence YouTube videos had on this shift in consumption.
