Plantronics RIG Gaming Headset [Best of PAX: Review]

The problem is, some of these events can be huge, which means not just crowds of bodies clamouring for the best view of the action, but during weekend events acres of tents and assorted living places jostling for position in anonymous chaos.

DragFX instantly turns your wimpy family wagon into a muscle car monster

In the recent Vince Vaughn movie, The Dilemma, the story revolved around a pair of car engineers who were developing a technology that would let hybrid and electric vehicles sound like regular beefy conventional gas powered cars. The movie apart, the idea of the tech seemed pertinent, since silent electric motors could cause a few issues if pedestrians can’t hear them coming.

The amazing AfterFocus gives your smartphone gorgeous camera skills [Daily Freeware]

The smartphone camera has come a long long way since the launch of the Nokia 7650 in 2002, which is generally thought to be the first mass market camera phone in the world.

How Many lets you instantly calculate the true cost of the gadget you’re buying [Daily Freeware]

Here’s the problem. Money. It’s become far too abstract. Not only is it usually dispensed via bits of colored plastic, or transferred from place to place in digital bits and byte, but we have lost sight of the true value of the things we buy.

Twoppy lets you create your own mobile phone tour guide in a flash

There’s no doubt that smartphones are a perfect tourist tool, just think of the things you can use them for. You can use one to navigate around a strange town (as long as you’re happy paying the roaming data fees for your GPS app), take photos of interesting monuments, even check on currency rates while out shopping. Brilliant, and that’s just the obvious ones. One other very cool use is as a mobile brochure for activities you may enjoy.
