iPhone 6 metal, magnet accessories can mess up OIS, NFC

Magnets and consumer electronics do not usually mix well, except for a few, well engineered cases. That tenuous relationship between the two seems to be the cause of some reported problems with the Optical Image Stabilization feature on their iPhone 6 Plus, as well as NFC performance on both the iPhone 6 and its larger sibling. And the source of this problem might be that fancy metallic case or magnetic accessory that you have may have just purchased from some reseller off the net.

Razer BlackWidow Chroma Review

Razer BlackWidow Chroma Review

Of the three Razer Chroma devices we've reviewed this week, the BlackWidow gaming keyboard is by far the most complex. In color, anyway - instead of just a couple of different ways to display color, this keyboard works with a wide variety of color blasts. It's one of the finest gaming keyboards on the market, too, of course. Since it first launched in 2010, the Razer BlackWidow has been one of the most popular gaming keyboards on the circuit - the pro eSports gaming circuit, that is - this is one of the keyboards the top gamers in the world use when they're competing for millions of dollars in cash prizes.

Google Cardboard gets serious: VR headsets for the masses

Just as Samsung and Oculus release their virtual reality headset for mobile devices with the Gear VR, Google is reminding the world that they kind of, sort of came first. Released first back at Google I/O 2014 earlier this year, the fold-up piece of cardboard with two glass lenses and a metal washer for a button was released basically in secret. Now just a few months later, Google has released their homepage for the unit and a dedicated section on Google Play. Now, they mean business.

Lumu review: the light meter has gone mobile

Lumu review: the light meter has gone mobile

Avid photographers know lighting is important. Often times, those dedicated to getting the perfect picture have expensive meters meant to allow them insight on which is the best exposure and filter (among other camera controls) to use. Lumu, a new plug-in for your iPhone, wants to help lighten your camera bag by getting you to leave the meter at home. Along with a few apps for iOS, the aim is to get you plugging into your audio jack rather than carrying a bulky meter.

Adidas Originals smartphone case Review

Can the brand with the three stripes bring the same quality to their smart device accessories that they do their sneakers and active wear?

Logitech Ultrathin, Type+, Keys-To-Go iPad Air 2 keyboard Review

Logitech Ultrathin, Type+, Keys-To-Go iPad Air 2 keyboard Review

With the iPad Air 2 in tow, we've had a go at the three newest Logitech keyboards this November, seeing how each of these machines fares in the field. With the "Keys-To-Go" model we've got the simplest machine - thin, tiny, and coming with not a whole lot else other than portability. The Type+ provides a cover for your iPad Air 2 along with a keyboard, allowing you to protect your iPad in-between typing sessions. The Ultrathin acts as a Smart Cover, but doesn't protect the way the Type+ does - instead you get an awesome hinge that allows you to adjust your iPad Air 2 at will.

Olloclip 4-in-1 Photo Lens for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus Review

One of the few rare gems happens to be Olloclip's new 4-in-1 lens for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, unique among camera add-ons because it works for the front and rear simultaneously. Portable, with a twist in design allowing you to clip it onto a pendant or keyring, the Olloclip has been hanging from my belt over the past few weeks; read on for my full review.
