Seagate Personal Cloud Review

Seagate Personal Cloud Review

Cloud storage is the current step we’re taking when it comes to managing our files. We also look to cloud storage to keep our pictures and videos safe, too. With all the security mishaps of late, keeping your info locked away on someone else’s hardware might be concerning. If that sounds like you, Seagate has a solution. Their Personal Cloud offers similar cloud-based features as your existing provider, except it’s all yours. Does it perform as well as it’s billed, though? We find out.

Review: Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 14

Review: Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 14

If you've seen one ThinkPad, you've seen them all. Such was a common opinion back when ThinkPads were IBM's heavy, obtrusive bricks, but as Lenovo has shown in recent years, times have changed and so has the brand. ThinkPads have retained their business-chic stylings, but have been updated with slim, sleek, and -- more often than not -- flexible bodies. The ThinkPad Yoga 14 is no exception; the laptop has all the markings of being a ThinkPad (including that beloved keyboard), as well as a modern and robust design that'll help it appeal to the newest generation of techies. Does it stand out enough among Lenovo's other recent ThinkPads to be worth the attention, however? Read our review to find out.

Final Fantasy Type-0 HD Review

Final Fantasy Type-0 HD Review

To suggest that Final Fantasy Type-0's international release was "long awaited" would be a gross understatement. The original game (pre-HD)'s demo was first released in August of 2011, back before the first whispers of an 8th-generation console release. Originally titled Final Fantasy Agito XIII for its non-HD PSP release, this game was eventually re-named Final Fantasy Type-0, so named for its original approach in battle in the Final Fantasy universe. Here we've got Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, a game that's been in development since mid-2012 for release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Your iPhone 6 is probably your go-to device for just about everything. If you’re like many iFans, you keep it in your desk, nightstand, and pull it out all the time. For just about any reason, too.

Not only does it secure your phone with Moshi’s hybrid construction method, it has a kickstand for those times you want to watch a video or have the screen upright.

TDK Life on Record TREK 360 review; big sound in every direction

When it comes to Bluetooth speakers, there’s plenty out there to choose from. If you want to get a bit more premium, the choices start to thin out quite a bit. Try to get an upgraded option, but still remain affordable, and the choices are fewer. With the TREK 360, TDK wants to give you reason to think smaller without considering compromise. With speakers forcing sound in 360-degrees, does the TREK 360 produce enough quality sound to make you want to buy one? We find out.

Moshi Sensecover review — all calls, no waiting on the iPhone 6

Moshi Sensecover review — all calls, no waiting on the iPhone 6

If you make or take a lot of calls, cases might agitate you. Having to flip open a cover just to take a call is a bit annoying, and the lack of screen protection can be concerning. If that sounds like you, we’d suggest the Moshi SenseCover. Not only will you get all-over protection, but the SenseCover offers a really unique touch capacitive sensor on the front flap that allows you to accept a call without ever opening the case up.

Moshi iGlaze & iGlaze Armour review; iPhone 6 protection in style

The two cases are very similar, but also uniquely suited to your taste and level of concern over your new phone. If you’re in the market for a case, we suggest you check this review out.

Jot Pro/Mini review; two fine-tuned stylus offerings

Jot Pro/Mini review; two fine-tuned stylus offerings

The stylus, as we know it, isn’t very good. The digital pen replacement is often incorrect, clumsy, and downright useless. Let’s be fair that if the stylus were any kind of reliably good, we’d have found out how to go paperless long ago. Sadly, they’re typically not. The Jot Pro and Jot Mini aim to change your mind about the stylus, with their pinpoint accuracy and pen-like feel. Are they good enough to keep you reaching for your tablet or phone instead of paper, though?

MOS Kick revisited; version 2.0 improved in time-lapse

MOS Kick revisited; version 2.0 improved in time-lapse

The last time we talked about the MOS Kick, it was in the late stages of a crowdfunding campaign. Though it fell just short of its goal, the team behind MOS Kick weren’t going to give up. The tiny stand also made its Kickstarter debut at an odd time, when the iPhone 6 was all but confirmed and most were suspending any purchases until they got their hands on a new phone. Refined, we’re taking a second look at an old favorite.

Moshi iVisor Glass review — clearly superior

Moshi iVisor Glass review — clearly superior

Your iPhone 6 might need some protection, and Moshi is there for you when you need it. Aside from their long list of cases, the company that makes so many Apple device accessories also has a unique take on screen protection for the iPhone 6. Their iVisor Glass is a solid iPhone 6 screen overlay, and cleverly mimics the aesthetic of your phone. Though Moshi says you can skip the glass down the street, we don’t recommend that. We’ll test its everyday use, though.

Moto E 2015 (2nd Gen) Review

Moto E 2015 (2nd Gen) Review

Motorola's 2nd gen Moto E comes with Android 5.0 Lollipop, a 4.5-inch display, and is perfectly legit for the price it's being offered at. Is it the finest piece of hardware on the market today? Of course not. Is it meant to be? No way. Does the 2015 Moto E provide one of the most compelling value propositions for a smartphone in the world today? Absolutely it does. This is Motorola's continuation of their most successful smartphone-selling setup to date - inexpensive, yet not cheap - easily one of the best new smartphones for the price it's being offered at globally this year.

Japan is famous for its minimalist approach to style. The Japanese design team TokyoFlash is behind some of the most unique watch designs on the market. They don't look like ordinary watches.
