Huawei P10 Plus review
Posted on 13-May-2017 17:28Tags Reviews, Android, by M Freitas

Huawei is quickly becoming a household name in the smartphone market. Its Huawei P9 brought in innovations such as dual lenses, Leica partnership for the camera software and hardware while the Huawei Mate 9 brought super-fast processor, AI-based multi-tasking and power management. With the new Huawei P10 this goes even further. Comments (Comments)

Petcube Play review
Posted on 13-May-2017 16:53Tags Reviews, Consumer Electronics, by M Freitas

Here's an idea: get a WiFi camera, add something we all know pets love to play with (laser!), overlay a social network for pets and a sleek design. You get Petcube Play. Comments (Comments)

datAshur Pro review
Posted on 4-Apr-2017 15:29Tags Reviews, Consumer Electronics, by M Freitas

As far as data security goes, most USB flash drives are rated pretty-low. You see, security can only be strong when it's easy to use and people won't go through lots of procedures to get a half-good experience - even when data security is at risk. This is not the case with the datAshur Pro. Comments (Comments)

Posted on 24-Jan-2017 17:09Tags Reviews, Computing

It's been a long time (since my move from desktop to laptops, a few years back) that I could enjoy a desktop with almost instant startup, no waiting for Office programs to run and (very important) playing games with all settings switched to HIGH. Comments (Comments)

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)

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)

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)
