Moshi VersaCover review; origami cool for the iPad

Moshi VersaCover review; origami cool for the iPad

Apple loves aluminum, and glass, and combining the two forms some very beautiful — and fragile — mobile devices. Their iPad lineup is among the more delicate, and with a large surface areas and thin profile, we tend to have trouble not scratching or busting them up. As devices edge toward paper-thin, we’re always looking for ways to protect them. For iPad, Moshi has created the VersaCover, an all-over protective case that has some interesting viewing options. It also pinches some of Amazon’s cool we loved with the Fire Tablet's cover.

Moshi Venturo review; a carry-all for the stylish

If you’re traveling or just migrating through the city and need to tote your tech with you, options abound. One of the more versatile and stylish options, named Venturo, comes to use from Moshi. Though many think of Moshi as an Apple-only accessory maker, Venturo is one that doesn’t fill a specific OEM niche; it just wants to be your day-to-day tech bag. Well appointed, Venturo has its sights set on the urban professional who needs to catch the train to work, but has enough bells and whistles for all.

popSlate Review – iPhone gets an E Ink case

popSlate Review – iPhone gets an E Ink case

The back of your iPhone is little more than an advert for Apple, so why not make it functional? As YotaPhone has demonstrated, there’s no shortage of things you can do when the back of your smartphone is a display as well, but tempting iPhone owners to cross the aisle to Android is a tough sell. Enter popSlate, a crowdfunded success story that embeds an E Ink screen into an iPhone case. It’s taken a little longer than planned to reach the market, so is it a case of too-little, too-late?

Aukey Quick Charge review; 10,000mAh of fast-charging bliss

You need power for your gadgets — there’s just no getting around it. Sometimes you’re near an outlet. Other times, you’re on-the-go and can’t be bothered to plug in.

Unlike most battery packs, it also supports Qualcomm’s Quick Charge technology, so if your phone also supports that tech, Aukey’s pack will power you up quickly. Does it really work as advertised, though?

Philips Hue Go Review – Finally, a battery

Philips Hue Go Review – Finally, a battery

Philips has been pushing its Hue smart lighting system for years now, but it’s taken until now, and the Hue Go, for the lamps to gain a battery for truly wireless convenience. Latest to the app-controlled line-up, the distinctive little lamp offers the same millions of color options as Hue has from the start; unlike most Hue bulbs, however, Hue Go can not only cut the cord but doesn’t demand a nearby smartphone. That flexibility comes with some compromises along the way, however; read on for my full review.

Moshi iLynx 3.0 review; a classy, fast-charging USB hub for all

Moshi iLynx 3.0 review; a classy, fast-charging USB hub for all

USB Type C is all the rage lately. The new Chromebook has it, and the MacBook relies on it entirely. You and I, though — we’re not there yet. While we’re still in USB land, hubs like the iLynx 3.0 from Moshi will remain as relevant as ever, but is it worth buying? We talk about future tech a lot, and that’s what (reversible) USB Type C is, but for right now (and really for the foreseeable future), USB is where it’s at.

LG G3 Google Cardboard VR headset Review mini

LG G3 Google Cardboard VR headset Review mini

The first thing I said to myself when I placed the "VR for G3" against my face was "ouch."* This piece of equipment is made of hard plastic, and is the beginning of something much bigger for LG and the Virtual Reality universe. They say so, in fact. "This is just the beginning," they print on a card in the box - "Want to be the first to hear about what's next from LG," they ask, "sign up now" to find out more. Meanwhile we're fairly sure we're a bit early to the game as the URL we're direct to launches a VR for G3 first announcement sort of presentation.

Logitech MX Master Review – The ambitious mouse

Logitech MX Master Review – The ambitious mouse

Turns out, mouse design is a serious business. Logitech has spent several years designing its new flagship peripheral, the MX Master, capable of embracing not just one but three of your computers, and even coaxing loyal trackpad users back into the fold. It also sees the return of one of Logitech's more contentious features, a slick scroll wheel with some fancy friction. I pushed my Magic Trackpad to one side to give the MX Master the chance to win me over; read on for the full review.

Jot Touch review — sensitive stylus perfection

Jot Touch review — sensitive stylus perfection

The stylus is not necessary for your day-to-day existence, we’d bet. You may think of a stylus as something you’re just not in need of, and you might be right. Though there have been a lot of really good styli of late, it’s still a relatively niche market. In that niche, though, some champions emerge. FiftyThree has their Pencil, which works in conjunction with the Paper app. Adonit has their Jot Touch, which works in unison with Forge (as well as a few other popular apps). Do the tandem warrant the asking price, though?
