    It feels as if we've been waiting for decades for battery technology to take its next quantum leap in terms of capacity and longevity. Sure, laptops these days last a little longer than they did ten years ago, but much of that is due to processors and the like consuming far less power now compared to yesteryear. But, if you can't create a

Then here is a gift guide for you! It’s loaded with items that will bring a smile to their recipients — no matter when they arrive!

    Subaru may be the king of all-wheel drive in its product line, but the automaker knows a thing or two about making vehicles that are fun to drive along with being really safe. The BRZ sports coupe is just such a car (sans AWD), and for 2015 Subaru adds more sport the model line with the Series.Blue limited edition. 2015 Subaru BRZ Series.Blue/Images by Author For a little review, BRZ was co-developed with Toyota as a fun sport coupe paying homage to the days of motoring fun in small, rear-drive cars.

    They say some people have stars in their eyes. Others can have stars in their ears. Literally, with these Constellation Earrings. There are two different sets of earrings available: Big Dipper/Little Dipper and Orion/Cassiopeia. The earrings are made of sterling silver with white topaz chips for the stars. That’s elegantly geeky. You can rotate them downward and wear them as a dangle earrings too. Great for astronomy fans and people who like stars (isn’t that everyone?). Scientifically proven to be stylish. When you wish upon a star, your ears ring true. Or something like that. If…

  • I Am Into This: Nintendo Games As Pulp Fiction Covers

    This is a small series of Nintendo video games imagined as the covers of pulp fiction covers by artist Ástor Alexander (also, his deviantART page). This is Metroid here, but there's Super Mario and Zelda covers after the jump. Plus a bonus non-Nintendo one for Bioshock Infinite's Burial at Sea DLC, because it lends itself to being a pulp fiction cover too perfectly to not be included. Not making a pulp fiction cover for Burial At Sea would be like picking anybody but me to be on the first issue of Dino F***ing Digest. Keep going for the rest.

As our sister site Hedonistica pointed out, it's annoying they never played the kicks in regular speed, or showed his score. Of course, based on the way he f***ing nails that bag, I'm just going to assume his score was 'ERROR: PLEASE STOP DOING THAT.' Keep going for the video, then spend a few minutes daydreaming that you're a badass ninja.

    In my work travels, I sometimes find myself in a roomful of equipment – and no furniture. Since using a laptop figures into most of my work, standing usually isn’t an option, and sitting on the floor is okay for a while. Jumping up and down or sitting cross-legged too long comes only when I have no other choices. So I added a Walkstool Comfort to my kit. It’s a high-quality, collapsible, telescopic-legged camp-style stool built in Sweden. The 45cm/18″ model is low enough to create an ideal lap-based laptop perch. It packs up surprisingly small, and is built for heavy…

    We went with IKEA for our kitchen remodel and saved a lot of money putting it all in ourselves. However, when it came time to install the handles on the cabinets, I tried carefully measuring the first one I did and it did not work very well. Then I found IKEA sells a drill template for just this purpose, it makes it trivial to install handle after handle in the same spot each time, and the handles came out great. The drill template aligns with one side of the cabinet door and you can mark and drill in seconds. I used a Sharpie to circle the holes that I was marking to make it even easier to…

  • SolaRoad Solar Bike Path

    Marcel Sim
    15 Dec 2014 | 5:07 am
    Cycling is a characteristic passion of the Netherlands, where bikes outnumber people. As of November, the country is home to the first solar bike path, SolaRoad. As sunlight hits the solar panel-paved route, energy is absorbed and added to the municipality’s supply. So far, the solar portion of the road is only 70 meters long, but it nonetheless produces enough energy to power several homes. The path itself is made of crystalline silicate solar cells that are encased in concrete and covered with a translucent layer of treated glass so that it isn’t slippery. Cycle Path [Cassandra Daily]

    Scan your Next Glass Of Wine And Beer Most people stick to what they know when shopping for beer or wine, cautious to guess wrong and end up with a bottle or 6-pack they don’t like. A new app called Next Glass is trying to fix that, and its solution works pretty well. The concept behind Next Glass is simple: You hold your phone up to a beer or wine bottle, and the app scans it and presents you with a score based on your preferences, along with its calorie count and alcohol by volume.

  • How Technology Is Helping People In The Workplace And Beyond

    Marcel Sim
    11 Dec 2014 | 7:05 am
    New technology is helping people in new and interesting ways. When people think of technology, they often associate it with work because it’s hard to imagine the world of work without telephones and fax machines, hardware and software, wireless communication and video conferencing. Technology has made work faster and more efficient, and it has reduced overheads while improving revenue. A powerful example of the incessant demand for technology is a look at how CISCO Systems, a retailer of networking solutions, has been able to earn $12.36 billion this year despite a difficult global…

    19 Dec 2014 | 4:00 am
    It would take plenty of guts for a company to use a superlative like ‘ultimate’ when it comes to describing their product, and award-winning Swedish company Penclic isn’t shy when it comes to describing their latest wireless workstation to be the ‘ultimate’ model that is in the market. After all, if it is something that can be used while you are on the road, at the office, or right smack in the comfort of your own home, shouldn’t it be deemed to be in such a category?

    Everyone has different groups of muscles that trouble them. Most of us with desk jobs that require us to sit all day have back and neck pain, but that is not the case for the general populace. If the muscles in your hands, thighs, or feet are constantly annoying you, you’re going to want a way to fix them just as badly as someone who has an aching back. Your job and daily activities often determine what parts of your body are affected, but there are a variety of ways to handle each issue. Of course, seeing a massage therapist is always the best option (assuming they’re good at…

    If you do any sort of video work, you know how important it is to have professional quality. If you’re reading from a script, your options are either to remember it in its entirety hoping you don’t mess up, or read from a teleprompter. You could always remember bits and pieces and record a few lines at a time, but it will add in a lot more editing and makes your video look choppy. While memorization is great, it also takes more time, where the teleprompter takes money. Well, that was true until the Parrot came into being. This is a compact, portable, and affordable teleprompter…

    This winter, just like any other winter in the past, you would definitely want to keep yourself nice and warm. Of course, doing so can be achieved through a variety of ways, where the cheapest of the lot would be to ensure that you are properly clothed to meet the freezing temperature around you. However, if you do not want to be bundled up with so many layers of clothing, why not settle for a decent heating solution at home? Sure, that is going to cost a whole lot more at the end of the winter season due to your electricity bill, but the freedom of movement and convenience! Wearing a pair of…

While the world of robot fights as seen in “Real Steel” or more recently, “Big Hero 6”, are still impossible at the moment, one must always remember that Rome was not built in a day, and hence, baby steps ought to be taken.

    23 Nov 2014 | 6:29 pm
    Sponsored Post Mobile usage costs are something many of us don’t think too much about when we’re home, but when we go on holiday, we often discover that it’s something we should have considered. Usually we can connect just fine, but hostel and hotel Wi-Fi is usually horrible, or ridiculously overpriced. Likewise, roaming fees can crush an otherwise normal phone balance, leaving even the most careful of us wondering how we managed to pull up such an outrageous bill.

    Often computers display messages when something goes wrong. Usually these are essential for alerting the computer user so they can resolve the problem. However, when computers are used for public purposes, error messages can be embarrassing. Flickr has a collection of these in the Public Computer Errors group pool. Many of the local buses have a screen near the front with a map of the route, information about the current and next stops and a scrolling news ticker. On a recent journey we saw raw HTML tags displayed with CSS in the news ticker text. Recently some of the local train stations…

    Since I joined Mozilla almost a year ago, I have been more conscious of the independent web meme.   Today, Mozilla celebrates it’s 10th Anniversary of Firefox which is all about choice, control, and transparency on the web [1]. While I was personally aware of independence on the Internet (I’ve been a Firefox user for a long time), I truly did not comprehend the importance of this subject.  Last night on my flight out to Mountain View (thru SFO), I watched The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin and this reinforced independent thinking as it pertains to global currency.

    It’s an exciting time for the advertising and marketing technology world.  WPP recently acquired up to 25% of Appnexus, Millennial Media just acquired Nexage, and Mozilla recently announced it was entering the advertising landscape (self promotion, I know). I’ve participated in this ecosystem for a while now and have some big hairy questions for us all going forward.  I think we should spend some time trying to think these questions through as an industry because we are all going to face it them. What happens when we have five closed ecosystems? You know, Google, Amazon, Apple, Baidu…

    Being a geek can sometimes become pretty expensive. Different devices offer differing amounts of geek fun for the buck. Every car and pickup manufactured from 1996 forward has what is known as an OBD2 port. OBD is short for on board diagnostics. The OBD2 port was originally mandated as part of emission control efforts. There are plenty of consumer-oriented OBD2 port scanners. However, with the proliferation of smart phones and tablets, something new has come along that many people have yet to become aware of. Inexpensive Bluetooth and WiFi enabled OBD2 modules are just the ticket to pair up…

    Earlier this fall, I decided to spend some gift money on a pair of good in-ear headphones for my iPhone that I use for exercise. I chose Sol Republic Relays in the Black/White color scheme. When you are wearing the Relays, they look very much like the Apple EarPods that come with the iPhone. But these headphones come with four different sets of Ear Tips that provide many semi-custom fit options. Although the Apple EarPods were a significant improvement over the old iPhone headphones in terms of reliability, they have been badly received because they have unusual teardrop-shaped ear buds that…

    Kathleen and I have lived in our house in Newtown for almost nine years. When we first moved in, we hadn't had time to buy outdoor holiday decorations, so we used solutions like the Chelsea Light Flurries Projector to blanket the front of our house in virtual snowflakes. But in the years that followed, like most other people in our community, we invested in Christmas traditional lights. And the ones I've started to purchase recently are long outdoor Christmas light sets that can be strung together in series and connected to a single outdoor power receptacle.

At the moment, there are expected to be 47.7 million Wi-Fi hotspots in the world by the end of 2014.

    16 Dec 2014 | 12:33 am
    I have spent the last two weeks living with the Panasonic AX802 ultra HD (4K) television. Yes, this 50-inch gogglebox is large, especially when placed within the environment of my tiny London flat, but is it any good? This has been the first year in which Panasonic has not had a plasma TV in their line up. The sad news was announced late last year with operations finally ceasing in March but they have deployed their boffins to sort out the Panasonic LED LCD range. The Panasonic Viera AX802 (also known as AX800 in North America and Europe) series of 4K Ultra HD TVs is available in three screen…

    It looks like Sony are at it again with the crowdfunding, the latest campaign being to fund the smallest smart lock. Sony is following up on the success of its FES smartwatch crowdfunding campaign. The FES smartwatch was entered on to the site without any mention of Sony. The clever watch not only uses e-ink for the display but the tech is used on the strap in order to give the wearer total control of how the FES looks. The company’s latest campaign on Majuake, the Japanese equivilent of Kickstarter, is for Qrio which, according to Sony, the world’s smallest smart lock. Qrio has…

    Good morning you gorgeous Gadgety faithful. On this crisp winter’s morn I have had to deal with the usual ignorance, self-importance and selfishness on the commute in to the office. As per usual I tried to take it all in my stride, attempting to swap my inner rage against impoliteness for some Christmassy spirit. I may have slipped a few times but, upon checking my emails, the news that this little corner of the interwebolosphere has managed to wriggle its way through to make the shortlist of the UK Blog Awards has truly lifted my mood. Yup, GadgetyNews is in the final 10 in the…

    You may have already fitted your Android Wear powered smartwatch with a custom face like the Gadgety Roy has done with his Kronus Gigante design, but now there’s more right out of the box. If you’re not so into tinkering as others, then the options for face designs on your Android wearable have been kinda limited but that’s all changed now thanks to Google’s rollout of the latest version of Android Wear, based on Lollipop. This update finally brings the promised ability for developers to create and sell their own unique, distinctive watch faces via Google Play. Some…

  • Moore's Law and Affordable Computing

    James Grahame
    2 Dec 2014 | 7:32 pm
    You've probably heard of Moore's Law. It's the notion that the number of transistors in dense integrated circuits will double every two years. When Intel co-founder Gordon Moore threw out the idea in 1965, he had no inkling that his observation would hold true for the next 50 years. In 1971, the Intel 4004 microprocessor contained about 2,300 transistors. In 1990, the Intel 80486 processor offered a staggering 1,000,000 transistors, and a modern 6-core Intel i7 processor crams several billion transistors onto a single die.  Analysts have highlighted the amazing rise in desktop computing…

  • Earliest Known Official Batmobile For Sale

    James Grahame
    17 Nov 2014 | 6:35 pm
    Robin Lee writes, "A heavily-customised Oldsmobile said to be the first officially-licenced Batmobile will go to auction later in December. Created in 1963, three years before the infamously camp Batman TV show hit the airwaves, DC Comics allowed a US chap named Forrest Robinson to build a Batmobile." I love the swooping look of this prehistoric Batmobile and I'm somewhat sad it didn't have the opportunity to star in its own series. Preferably in black & white. With gangsters. The minimum bid price is $112,500, but the auction house is expecting the final price to be significantly…
  • The Last Revox Repairman in Brazil

    The Revox Man from Baucia on Vimeo. Alfredo Luiz Baucia writes, "I think you would like to know about the last Revox specialist still working in Brazil, Getulio Cinquetti." Indeed, we would. Alfredo took the time to capture a typical working day for Mr Cinquetti on video. The result is a nod to the past and a reminder that in a few short years none of the original Revox technicians from the 1960s and 1970s will be around. Sadly, few want to learn their craft and there's a real risk that decades of technical knowledge will vanish moments after the last puff of solder smoke from the old…

I'm the father of a young child, which means I've suffered through dozens of episodes of Dora the Explorer, whose target demographic seems to be acid tripping bilingual preschoolers. I don't think children genuinely like this kind of show, they just accept it because they don't know any better and parents think it's safe. The simple truth is that kids crave real cartoons. Grownup cartoons. Wickedly funny…

  • Transportable Coldbrew Coffee Maker

    C. S. Magor
    8 Dec 2014 | 5:44 pm
    If you have never tasted cold-brewed coffee, you owe it to yourself to try. It tastes rich, flavorful and lacks much of the acidity that you find in a conventionally-brewed cup of coffee. It tastes great over ice, with or without milk, and you can even heat it up. While there are a few brew-in-the-fridge models on the market at the moment (the most famous being the Hario Mizudashi), this one stands apart in that it seems to use considerably less coffee (4 tablespoons for 20 ounces) – and in its portability (it has a screw-top and a neoprene sleeve). Brewing method, as described by Think…

    The fabric that you see before you is the result of a collaboration between Heriot Watt University’s School of Textiles and, Harris Tweed and Johnny Walker – and it permanently smells like Johnny Walker Black. The tweed carries aromas of rich malt, golden vanilla, red fruit and dark chocolate tones and has been designed to reflect the colors of the whisky ingredients. The scent is layered into the fabric throughout the finishing process and is permanently imbued in the tweed that will not go off even after dry cleaning. On the surface, it might seem somewhat silly for people to go…

The 3D-printed case, as the name implies, is designed to house a Rasberry Pi. The cartridge slot hides some conveniently positioned USB ports and the Ethernet jack. The grand sum of $49 gets you the case, while $119 gets you the Pitendo Ultimate, which includes a Raspberry Pi Model B+, an 8GB SD Card with RetroPie, One USB SNES Controller, an AC Adapter and an HDMI Cable – everything except the ROMs, which you will need to install yourself.

  • Handmade Dolls Based on Photos, the Ultimate Narcissistic Gift [Selfie Dolls]

    If you ever felt that you should have your ugly mug on a loveable, huggable doll, the folks at Mahinarium, a Hungary-based doll maker, have you covered. For the eminently reasonable starting price of $95, they will turn one of your pictures into a doll. The asking price gets you a basic 12-inch doll, fully clothed, with a pair of glasses (if applicable). Adding pets, favorite objects or children costs more. It is worth pointing out that the process is not fire-and-forget: you send a photo to Mahinarium and they send you a mock-up image for feedback, you can work through the fine tuning of the…

    Just when you thought toys sucked after the 80s, some crazy inventors came up with this: The Butterfly in a Jar. It’s probably the most awesomest toy pet you could have, and potentially the toy of the year. Screw those lame hamsters. You can’t put those things in a jar. Actually, you can. But they start to smell after awhile. The butterfly movement is very realistic, but hold off on calling animal cruelty just yet. The butterfly isn’t real, I swear. It uses a teeny tiny electric wire that responds to the tap of your finger making the butterfly flutter around inside the jar…

    People first became aware of the Lytro light-field camera last 2012 producing unique images with adjustable depth of field and perspective. While it is the first camera of its kind, the device did not necessarily take off, in part for the camera’s unique box design and the low resolution output. Lytro is aiming to change all that with the new Lytro Illum Camera. The new Lytro Illum takes on a design similar to DSLR cameras that photographers are familiar with. It still uses the technology that its first light field camera is known for. Since it is using a different technology, it also…

    At an event held yesterday evening in Beijing, Chinese smartphone giant Huawei celebrated the one year anniversary of its Honor 6 handset by unveiling the taunting-ly titled Honor 6 Plus. Coming off as a shot fired across the bow of Apple’s recent jump to a larger iPhone, the latest addition to the Honor range sports a 5.5in 1080p JDI negative LCD and Huawei’s own Kirin 925 octa-core chipset. The real kicker, however, is the inclusion of two 8 megapixel rear cameras which boast to pump up the effective pixel size to 1.98 microns for cleaner images and improved sensitivity. The…

  • 8 Of The Best Computer Monitors For Gaming Over 24-Inches

    Shawn Sanders
    17 Dec 2014 | 10:30 am
    The hunt for the best gaming monitor is afoot. There’s a new visual fidelity milestone available for wanton coveting. The exalted 4K (3820×2160) display resolution is very slowly inching toward affordability with some of the industry’s newest most capable PC monitors. A 4K display resolution is virtually 4-times that of the old 1080p standard and produces richer more detailed images thanks to the increase in pixels present horizontally and vertically. Yet resolution is not the “end-all be-all” of this particular tale. It is definitely a major deciding factor when evaluating a…

But one thing that never interested me was home-brewing. It’s not that I wouldn’t love to be able to create my own unique craft brews — there’s nothing I’m more interested in doing — but the problem is that home-brewing is a complicated and timely hobby that’s difficult for newbies to pick up and be successful at.

But giving up surround sound seems a given since all the speakers are contained in single cabinet staring dead-on at the person watching the TV. But the Yamaha YAS-203 Sound Bar’s got that covered: its “surround sound” feature actually lives up to the name.

Spotify analysts scrutinized the success of Meghan Trainor's pop hit "All About That Bass" in two markets — in the United States, where the song appeared in stores, on streaming services, and on the radio at the same time, and the United Kingdom, where the song only went on sale a month and a half after it first appeared on Spotify UK.

  • New Samsung Galaxy devices in Sprint’s leasing program

    A few weeks ago we have been surprised to see that Sprint introduced its device leasing program, but so far only the two iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus models have been in it. Well, things are about to change! Thanks to this scheme, you have the chance to lease a handset by essentially paying Sprint a monthly sum as ‘rent’. And the best part is that the carrier has announced it is ready to add two new devices to the leasing roster; we are talking about Samsung’s Galaxy S5 and Galaxy S5 Sport. So, given all these, you already have the possibility to grab either smartphone through…

Like that, they have integrated the TouchWiz UI with the new version of Android, so here we have a newer build of Android 5.0 for the Galaxy S5 that has been just showcased. It is true that the handset’s information page still doesn’t say the word Lollipop, but the Android version is finally listed as 5.0, instead of the “L” we saw last time.

  • T-mobile Unlimited (sort-of) Everything Plan

      Unlimited Everything Plan (sort-of) T-mobile has some pretty impressive lines of service.  I’ve been a customer since Android hit the market and I can testify to that quality of service.  At one time it did offer a whopping 10 Terabytes of streaming data per month, but nothing is perfect (even for T-mo).  But is it truly unlimited data? The data, T-mobile claims, is Unlimited (sort-of).  I really dislike putting that condition in but it’s worth noting that offering unlimited tethering has not been on the plate of any carrier in a very long time (if ever).   You do…

The uses for such a device would seem to be limitless and via the video below, Dropcam gets us started.

    Well I guess it's technically the "Batman Mask As It Could Be in 1920" according to designer Bob Basset, but look at that laced-up backside. And its ingredients: leather; brass; and mesh. I think this Dark Knight has S&M written all over him. Catwoman will be pleased. Bob Basset is a self-described "family of crazy masters." Their nut house, founded in 1989 in the Ukraine, creates an extensive line of fine and unique art pieces, most with a steampunk...or superhero dominatrix in the boudoir...edge.

  • Introducing the Spirit Charger

    The new Spirit Charger is an upgrade for the Tetris power bank, one of our best selling units. The Tetris was popular because it was easy to use. In addition to being a portable power bank it served as a USB wall outlet, which meant that when it came time to grab the Tetris, it was always charged for you. When the time came to head out and your phone battery was low, it was ready to help. When the power went out, it was on, and when you discovered your battery was low as you sat on the couch to tweet your world views, it was there (regardless of your views!). Well the Spirit Charger improves…

Well, then the DJI Phantom for GoPro is the answer! This is also the most preferred drone mount for GoPro owners. This DJI drone that you can buy from Amazon for only $449 is a bargain at this price. Keep in mind that other drones for sale by DJI cost over $500. This drone costs slightly less without ANY compromise on quality.

  • DJI Phantom FC40 Review

    Matt Larson
    6 Dec 2014 | 1:14 pm
    One of the most popular drones for sale this Christmas is predicted to be the DJI Phantom FC40. It is a strong model, reasonably priced (a lot cheaper compared to the DJI Phantom 2 models) and sturdier than the AR Parrot 2.0 drone. We have therefore decided to test and write a review for this FC40 drone below. One of its main advantages is that you can also attach a GoPro to it and control the GoPro via the GoPro Hero+ app via Wifi separately from the drone. This is possible because the DJI Phantom FC40 operates on the 5.8GHz frequency so it will not interfere with the GoPro camera. We…

The Wide-Angle Zoom AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 12-24mm f4.0G IF-ED. Used with one of Nikon’s DX format D-SLRs (which have APS-C size sensors), the 12-24mm has an effective focal range of 18-36mm which means it’s great for panoramic landscapes, street scenes, cityscapes and architectural subjects.

But before you gave your hard-earned money to a camera of your choice check out our tips below on how to choose a compact digital camera. A basic digital camera will suit someone who wants to take pictures to view on their computer and create 7x5in prints. It should cost around $80, but there may be hidden downsides such as slow performance and very basic user controls. Spend a little more and you’ll get a higher resolution. A 16-megapixel sensor has the potential to produce sharp prints up to A3 size, but only if it and the lens…
  • Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4: Best Digital Video Camera?

    Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 Review The term “game changer” is bandied around a little too much in relation to many new cameras, but as far as the Panasonic GH4 is concerned, it’s pretty well on the money. Firstly, Panasonic’s mirrorless flagship is invading territory that was once the exclusive domain of D-SLRs, offering a more compact (but no less capable) alternative to the models popular with video makers. Secondly, it’s mounting an attack on the camcorder market by adopting all the video-related features that are standard on pro-level or semi- pro models, but haven’t been found…
  • Sigma 50mm f1.4 DG HSM: Best Digital Lens?

    Sigma 50mm f1.4 DG HSM Review It’s tempting to think that the Germans have a monopoly on premium quality interchangeable lenses – and, in particular, Zeiss’s recent offerings tend to reinforce this – but Sigma is quietly challenging with its Art Series fast primes. The first in the series, the 35mm f1.4 DG HSM, won this category last year and, this time around, Sigma had a Zeiss contender to deal with, but still won the day for a lens which earns superlatives for every aspect of its design, construction and performance. Sigma still makes all its lenses in Japan and, perhaps not…

Connect it to your home network and the whole family can make use of it from PCs, Macs and even smartphones and tablets, yet it costs less than $50. Although it offers all these functions, the Canon MG2950 is still basic in many ways.

As it turned out lots of early adopters are complaining about improper multi-touch detection and the low touch sensitivity that results in either the phone not detect your finger, or registering it in the wrong place.

    ASUS is the company that makes Google’s superb Nexus 7 Android tablet and now the Taiwanese giant is making even cheaper tablets. The ASUS MeMOPad 7 is available in in a range of striking colors, including black, yellow, white, blue and our personal favorite, red. For such cheap tablet, the MeMOPad 7 is surprisingly sturdy and well-made. The thin borders on the longer sides of the screen and the smooth, slippery rear surface can make it difficult to get a comfortable firm grip on it. The ASUS MeMOPad 7 has neither the soft, easy-to-grip rear of the Nexus 7 nor the thumb rejection technology…
  • DELL Venue 8: A Let Down?

If it looks familiar that’s because it comes wrapped in exactly the same hardware as the DELL Venue 8 PRO, but runs Android 4.4 (KitKat) instead of windows 8.1 From the outside both tablets look identical, cased as they are in the same sturdy, black plastic. The narrow borders to the right and left of the screen (when held vertically) make it somewhat tricky to hold and use with one hand, though the ribbed rear compensates for this somewhat with its easy-to-grip texture. At 338g, the Venue 8 is virtually the same weight as…

Amazon Kindle Fire HD 6 is the cheapest and smallest Amazon Tablet yet. The 8GB model just costs $79, although it’s worth paying an additional of $20 to double your storage to 16GB as there’s no microSD card slot for future storage expansion.

    Asus Transformer Pads used to be marketed as a premium alternative to Apple’s iPad. Over time, however, Asus has brought down the price, and the current Transformer Pad TF103C costs only $348 for the tablet and keyboard dock. As a tablet alone, the Asus Transformer Pad TF103C is rather humdrum. Although the soft-touch plastic backing makes it pleasant enough to hold, it’s dumpy at 10mm thick and 556g, and there’s little about its specifications to set the heart racing. There’s a bog-standard 1,280 x 800-resolution IPS display, a 2-megapixel camera at the rear and a 1.2-megapixel…

The Aura H2O is waterproof for up to 30 minutes in depths of up to one meter; it easily survived a soak in a hot bubble bath. The Aura H2O’s 6.8in screen has a resolution of 1430×1080 pixels which is higher than the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite’s 1024×758 pixel 6in display. The result is text that is wonderfully clear and crisp, looking just as good as a printed book. The Paperwhite still looks pretty good in comparison, but far cheaper, unbranded,…
