Iomega px2-300d NAS Review

Iomega’s StorCenter px2-300d is a NAS unit aimed at businesses and the prosumer crowd, offering features beneficial to both types of user. This particular unit is the 4TB model, but the device is available in up to 6TB varieties, all of which share the same features.

Whether you’re a business owner looking for a way to keep your data safe or a prosumer in need a sophisticated personal server, read our full review of the px2-300d to see how the device holds up.

Acer Aspire S7 Review

The larger of the two big-hitters in the Acer Aspire S7 series Ultrabooks sits here on our desk like a high-powered glass-covered knife, ready to bring the best we've seen in touchscreen-toting Windows 8-optimized notebook action to the market. This machine has been delivered to our doorstep in its most powerful configuration, all $1,649 USD of it - complete with a 3rd Generation (Ivy Bridge) Intel Core i7-3517U Processor clocked in at 1.9GHz.

Now we've got to see if this is enough to match up with that price - or if after all is said and done, the price will be the last of your thoughts in this next-generation experience!

Orange Libon app pushes HD voice (since other carriers don’t seem to care)

Orange has launched Libon for iOS, pushing HD voice calls via app after apparently getting impatient for all other networks to implement the better quality audio. The free download - which will work on all carriers, and is headed to Android in early Q1 2013 - supports HD calls between Libon users over a 3G or WiFi connection, as well as personalized voicemail and voice-to-text transcription of messages.

Samsung Galaxy Note II Review

Samsung Galaxy Note II Review

Samsung's new Galaxy Note II arrives with some heritage to explain it, though a 5.5-inch smartphone can still take some explaining. After its first-gen predecessor blustered its way into a new segment - known by some and loathed by others as "phablets" - the new model tweaks the formulae some, boosting performance, smoothing the design, and polishing the digital pen elements that help set it apart from the smartphone crowd. So, if the original Galaxy Note eventually answered the question "will it sell?" can the Samsung Galaxy Note II convince us that it's a worthwhile upgrade? Read on for the full SlashGear review.

A solid reception to the One series and a potentially key deal to be the face of Windows Phone 8 - seized right under Nokia's nose, no less - is the dressing around hardware that is finally compelling: attractive, competitively priced, not embarrassed in specifications. Now, with the HTC One X+, there are signs that HTC is addressing its last big blot on the score-sheet: cloud services.

HTC makes no Sense

HTC makes no Sense

You have to ask yourself whether HTC enjoys floundering. The company was doing so well, with an eye-catching range of appealing new devices that didn't feel like yesterday's hardware, along with the promise of a more proactive approach to software and services. Now it has dropped the bomb on HTCSense.com, its web-based hub for smartphones and tablets: after April 30, Sense online syncing of Contacts, Messages, Footprints and Call History will all be wiped out. There's "renovation" incoming, HTC claims, but it's hard to think of a much worse way that the company could've handled it.
