Garmin vivomove review
Posted on 21-Aug-2016 18:57Tags Reviews, Consumer Electronics, by M Freitas

The Garmin vivomove is a good looking activity tracker that resembles an analog watch. It is closer to a sport watch but the ability to swap wriststraps makes it easy to adapt to different social situations. Comments (Comments)

Meizu M3 Note review
Posted on 21-Aug-2016 17:06Tags Reviews, Android, by M Freitas

I have received a Meizu M3 Note smartphone from PB Tech for review and it's fair to say it's a very impressive device - for the middle-tier price range and superb service by PB Tech (more on this later) this is an excellent choice for our market. Comments (Comments)

Philips has released an updated Hue platform with a new Hue Bridge, the little smart box that connects up to 50 Hue lights and lamps to the bigger network out there. Comments (Comments)

Posted on 10-Jul-2016 12:25Tags Reviews, Android, by M Freitas

Huawei is quickly becoming one of the largest smartphone presences in the markets and this year's blitz marketing campaign focusing on the new Huawei P9 is just evidence of how much the company is investing on this. Comments (Comments)

Sony Wireless Deep Bass SRSXB3 review
Posted on 29-May-2016 13:46Tags Reviews, Consumer Electronics, by M Freitas

It is a common thing: you have a great set of playlists in your Spotify account and want to share this during a party or when meeting friends... But your smartphone is not a speaker and the sound doesn't make justice to the brilliance of your selection. Comments (Comments)

Earlier this year Fibit announced a couple of new additions to its line of fitness track. We look at the Fibit Blaze. Comments (Comments)

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)

Posted on 9-Feb-2016 11:35Tags Reviews, Consumer Electronics, by M Freitas

I had the Dell XPS 13 Intel Core i5 for a couple of weeks - a mid-range laptop and yet with power to spare. Comments (Comments)

Navman MiVue 580 review
Posted on 4-Jan-2016 11:36Tags Reviews, Consumer Electronics, by M Freitas

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)

BB-8 app-enabled droid by Sphero review
Posted on 15-Dec-2015 20:00Tags Reviews, Consumer Electronics, by M Freitas

What promises to be one of the movies of the decade needed a merchandise that would make it justice. Sphero solved the puzzle. 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)

Posted on 26-Aug-2015 14:17Tags Reviews, Consumer Electronics, by M Freitas

Printers have come a long way and less is more now as the HP Deskjet 3630 shows. 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)

Da Vinci 3D printer review
Posted on 14-Aug-2015 15:38Tags Reviews, Consumer Electronics, by M Freitas

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

Sony M4 Aqua review
Posted on 13-Aug-2015 11:10Tags Reviews, Android, by Steve Biddle

I've always been a fan of Sony phones, so I was keen to see how this new mid-range handset stacked up. 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)

Posted on 5-Aug-2015 11:02Tags Reviews, Consumer Electronics

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)
