CleverLoop home security review
Posted on 28-Feb-2016 13:12Tags Reviews, Consumer Electronics, by M Freitas

Having recently looked at a home automation system I thought it would be good to have a look at a pure video security system, and luckily the CleverLoop folks have a New Zealand presence. I had a chance to meet with their local representative and one of their developers who was visiting the country. Comments (Comments)

The Navman MiVue 580 is a high definition dashboard camera with good support for night time recording. It is no surprise that it also supports location timestamp, thanks to its built-in GPS powered by Navman technology. Comments (Comments)

Withings Activite trackers review
Posted on 28-Oct-2015 14:10Tags Reviews, Consumer Electronics, by M Freitas

The Withings Activite brand of activity trackers offers a balance between functionality and fashion. They are simple and disguise its function well. And to me that's the main appeal of these pieces. Are they watches with activity tracking or activity trackers that can tell the time? Comments (Comments)

Intel NUC NUC5i5RYH review
Posted on 21-Sep-2015 16:01Tags Reviews, Computing, by M Freitas

The Intel NUC platform has been around for a while and it's a favourite of mine when someone asks for a good HTPC platform (thinking as a consumer) or an all around desktop platform for business needs. Comments (Comments)

Logitech MX Master review
Posted on 26-Aug-2015 14:14Tags Reviews, Consumer Electronics, by M Freitas

Over the years Logitech changed into a computer peripheral company but the mouse is what defined it for me. The latest model to land here is the MX Master wireless mouse, a futuristic looking mouse with modern features. Comments (Comments)

It was my first 3D printing experience and I can say it was a success - or almost. But most likely my fault. Comments (Comments)

ALLDOCK review
Posted on 5-Aug-2015 11:17Tags Reviews, Consumer Electronics

It happens to everyone... We have more devices that need USB charging than we have space on a desk. And the cables. And the number of chargers with different space requirements. Comments (Comments)

Sony Smartwatch3 review
Posted on 14-Jun-2015 15:59Tags Reviews, Android

For a few weeks I have been wearing the Sony Smartwatch3, an Android Wear-based smartwatch device. Like any upcoming technology smartwatches promise new use cases and like in any upcoming technology it can deliver well in some scenarios - and not so much in others. Comments (Comments)

Dyson DC65 Animal vacuum cleaner review
Posted on 14-Jun-2015 15:51Tags Reviews, Consumer Electronics

It is incredible the amount of dust our home accumulates. We have been using a Dyson vacuum cleaner for years but have never really tried an upright model, so the DC65 was a good surprise. Comments (Comments)

ASUSTOR AS-7008T 8 bay NAS review
Posted on 7-Apr-2015 12:40Tags Reviews, Computing, by M Freitas

Network attached storage devices and full on computers aren't much different these days. Take the ASUSTOR AS-7008T 8 bay NAS device for example: you can just add some storage to it, configure the way you want the NAS to work and tuck it away in a corner, doing storage things. Comments (Comments)
