Sonos today unveiled their newest speaker, the Play:1.  It’s a $200 box that is about half the size of the company’s Play:3 and costs $200, $100 cheaper than the aforementioned speaker. I spent a few minutes with the speaker last week and while a full review is coming, here are...

Consuming music has never been easier thanks to the wide swath of devices that support a myriad of services.  Options range from the tried and tested Apple iTunes store, to MOG, to Rhapsody, to the darling of music startups Spotify.  In fact, some of my evenings have been spent taking...

- - 1 Comment

Buying an iPhone 5 is a no brainer.  However, if you already own the iPhone 4s you’re probably gripped with the anticipation of buyers remorse since there is the ever looming question of “is it worth it?”  Although we haven’t had a chance to complete a thorough review of the...

Hands on with StreamTV Network’s glasses free 3D tech

It’s always a bit of a hassle to demo a new product at a press junket. You have a group of people crammed into a small room – usually a conference room or a hotel room – which makes things abnormally hot, and there’s almost always someone there who forgot...

Hawken Hands-On (E3 Preview)

- - 0 Comments

There are only a few games from E3 that I can say without a doubt I’m dying to play, for the first time or again and again. Hawken was my second appointment at E3, and after a full day on the show floor, it’s the one game I’ve played that...

Razer Blade Hands-On (CES)

- - 1 Comment

Razer may have shown off what many consider a game-changer in the world of tablets, but I think equally important is the Razer Blade, a full-fledged 17″ gaming laptop. It’s not revolutionary in any way but one: it looks as slick as can be. It has the same design finesse...

MLG Pro Circuit Controller hands-on (CES)

If you look at anyone’s gamepads, chances are they are the original PS3 or 360 controllers. Not that there’s anything wrong with that; both Sony and Microsoft put thousands of hours of research into making their controllers perfect, and though neither is, both are very solid. But after five and...

There are a few phone companies that unfortunately only put a few phones out a year, and Sony Ericsson was previously one of them. At least in the US, anyhow. Now Sony has taken full control of the Ericsson brand, that isn’t necessarily likely to change, but Sony did reveal...

It may go without saying that the Samsung Galaxy S II is an incredible phone. Actually, they are incredible phones. They’ve done so well that there are at least five variants available worldwide today, four of which you can purchase in the US. The Galaxy Note is the most different...

It’s easily the most interesting Windows Phone 7 device in the world, the Dos Equis of WP7 devices. Nokia, a company whose name is rarely seen these days, and for the past few years has been mostly absent in the US (though their presence in the states has always been...

Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet (hands on)

- - 4 Comments

If Barnes & Noble’s original Nook Color, which debuted late last year, blurred the line between e-reader and tablet, the freshly unveiled Nook Tablet completely erases it. It’s a tablet, no question (it’s right there in the name), even though the Nook brand began as a dedicated e-reading device. B&N...
