Sleeping Dogs Definitive Edition Review

Sleeping Dogs Definitive Edition Review

This release of Sleeping Dogs is the big-time re-up the game needed for the current generation of consoles: Xbox One and PlayStation 4. It still doesn’t look as fantastic as it does when you’re topped-out on a high-end PC, but Sleeping Dogs Definitive Edition never looked better on a console. This game was fun and entertaining in an evolved old-school way when it was first released, and it’s all the more entertaining now.

Nokia Lumia 530 Review

Nokia Lumia 530 Review

When we posted our review of the Nokia Lumia 520 and subsequently the Lumia 521 for T-Mobile, it wasn’t yet entirely clear the impact they’d have on the Windows Phone universe. Now that we know that Nokia’s efforts allowed it to dominate the Windows Phone universe, we can see how important it is that the brand was able to create a generally OK phone as an extremely low-cost deliverable. They’re trying to do this again with the Nokia Lumia 530 around the world - today we have a peek at the T-Mobile USA edition.

SlateGo Mobile AirDesk review: your laptop’s best friend

SlateGo Mobile AirDesk review: your laptop’s best friend

The term “laptop computer” is a bit misleading. Sure, your Macbook might fit on your lap, but it’s definitely not designed just for that. A flat, metal bottom that gets noticeably warm when you use it for prolonged periods only leaves you shifting in your seat, or shoving a pillow underneath. The last thing you want is to leave the comforts of your favorite chair and head to a desk. The SlateGo wants to help end your warm-legged shuffle, but does it really work? Let’s find out!

Misfit Flash Review

Misfit Flash Review

This is the story of how I became a believer in the activity tracking trend sweeping the smart device environment. While I was baffled that anyone would want to exercise in the first place back when products like Jawbone UP, Fitbit, and the Nike Fuelband were launched. Now I understand. I get why it makes sense to want to track how active I am. It’s like scoring points in a video game - only these points make me feel like I’m winning physically. And the Misfit Flash is inexpensive enough - and works well enough - that I wouldn’t even have had to break the bank to get here.

You really have to ask yourself a few questions before you take the plunge. We really should make a flowchart for you in deciding whether or not to allow yourself to experience this game, starting with the key - have you seen the original ALIEN film?

Amazon Fire HD 6 Review

Amazon Fire HD 6 Review

With the Fire HD 6 we see Amazon approach the standard paperback book size device. But this device is not aimed at reading alone, it’s aimed at every kind of Amazon-based media. It is, after all, an Amazon-centric device, and therefor should be purchased only by those willing to work with Amazon’s collection of digital stores.

Dell Venue 8 review: mid-range and proud

Dell Venue 8 review: mid-range and proud

Android tablets shouldn’t cost much, and they don’t have to. Dell kept this in mind when designing and building their Venue 8 tablet. A decidedly mid-range tablet, the Venue 8 may still pack a punch. How brutal could that gut-shot be? We find out in our review.
