Synology DiskStation DS411slim NAS review

Synology DiskStation DS411slim NAS review

Backup is, for many of us, a guilty topic. Even the geekiest of computer-addicts can find themselves blindsided by data loss, and while cloud services like Gmail and Spotify may be rescuing us from having to keep local backups of our mail and music, there's still plenty of pain when a drive unexpectedly fails. Synology's DiskStation DS411slim offers a somewhat unique take on the home and small office NAS market, using notebook-sized HDDs to pack quad-drive redundancy into an device with a smaller footprint than the average router. Can it save us from drive death disaster? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Two “totally distinct” iPhones in September insist sources

Two “totally distinct” iPhones in September insist sources

The one iPhone/two iPhone fifth-gen rumor mill continues to grind, and after yesterday's supposedly definitive claims that Apple was readying a single iPhone 5 for launch in September this year, rather than a two model lineup including an iPhone 4S, now there's more intel suggesting otherwise. 9 to 5 Mac's source says Apple is, indeed, planning to sell "two totally distinct iPhones" come the tail-end of Q3 2011, with one being a cheaper device intended to take on low-priced Android handsets.

Archos 80 G9 and 101 G9 Tablets hands-on [Video]

With the iPad dominant in both market- and mind-share, it takes something special to distract from Apple's all-conquering slate. Archos reckons it has the answer with the 80 G9 and 101 G9 tablets, a pair of low-cost models announced last week and priced from just $279 despite a 1.5GHz TI dual-core OMAP4 processor. SlashGear grabbed some hands-on time with the two slates today, to see if they lived up to their lofty aspirations.

Microsoft CEO must go demands influential investor

Microsoft CEO must go demands influential investor

An outspoken and influential hedge fund manager made waves at an investor conference yesterday by calling for Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer to step down. Suggesting Ballmer's "continued presence is the biggest overhang on Microsoft's stock," Greenlight Capital chief David Einhorn insisted it was time to "give someone else a chance" at the helm. The investor - whose fund currently holds approximately 9m Microsoft shares, or around 0.11-percent of the outstanding shares - blamed Ballmer for wasting time and money on poorly considered mergers and acquisitions, as well as short-sightedly mishandling the smartphone, PMP and tablet segments.

For a gadget reviewer, I’m rubbish at advice

For a gadget reviewer, I’m rubbish at advice

There's an awful moment after I tell someone what I do for a living when you can see the cogs churning behind their eyes. "Oh," they say, nodding in a way that suggests they've suddenly realized they don't have to spend five quid on a gadget magazine, "I need a new phone/laptop/tablet/washer-dryer actually… what do you recommend?"

Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play Review

Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play Review

Frankly, it's a surprise it's taken them this long. The idea of a PlayStation phone hasn't been so much a persistent rumor as it has a cellular cloud hanging over both Sony and Sony Ericsson. It overshadowed the launch of the PSP Go and has been responsible for untold speculation about terse relations between the divisions. Throw in more pre-announce leaks than average, and the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play has quite the reputation to live up to. Can the first gaming-centric Android smartphone deliver both the polished day-to-day experience we now expect, and live up to the PlayStation branding? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Nintendo 3DS Review

Nintendo 3DS Review

Nintendo has a reputation for kooky, eccentric products, and on that front the 3DS is no different. Upgrading the now-familiar clamshell console with a glasses-free 3D display, it promises a new breed of games, impromptu social gaming with StreetPass, and the instant allure of 3D photography and Augmented Reality. Still, while Nintendo has been busy getting its freak on, the mobile gaming market has become a whole lot more serious. Just about every gadget that wants a place in your pocket - your cellphone and PMP included - wants to take care of your gaming needs as well, and so the 3DS has more competition than ever before. Can the console deliver, or do its eccentricities count it out? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

iPhone 5 Will Stick with 3.5-inch Display [Logically]

iPhone 5 Will Stick with 3.5-inch Display [Logically]

Let's begin this short journey into the Apple mind with a so-called "leaked" image of what they're calling an iPhone 5 screen photo. What this photo shows is basically black ink printed on transparency paper. Out on the streets they're saying this is a 4-inch screen that Apple will be using for their next iPhone model. No way. Why? Well before we go into any further proofs, take a look at the top of the phone (on the left.) It's printed completely uneven - just about as uneven as the notion that iOS will ever be working on a 4-inch screen.
