[rating:4.5/5] First off, the complete name for the lens is the “Tamron 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD (B008) Lens” – while I didn’t mean to offend anyone by shortening it, that’s a bit too much for the title.  At any rate, for those who don’t know already, Tamron is...

It’s sickening how many iPhone cases there are on the market.  You can choose from the cheap to the ultra expensive.  Take for example Case-mate’s Titantium Premium case.  It costs a whopping $300.  Hardly worth the price based on the materials alone, but since it’s produced in limited quantities it’s...

Urbanears Plattan Headphone Review

- - 4 Comments

When it comes to headphones, it’s hard to beat on-ear or over-ear cups to get the most immersive sound quality, but the trade off tends be lack of portability. While larger earphones offer more power and tend to block out background noise better, they can really eat up a lot...
