Review: Moshi IonGo 5K Duo

The Moshi IonGo 5K Duo Proves To Be A Capable Everyday Mobile Charger. In this fast-paced, tech-dependent modern day, a small but powerful mobile charger is one of the most important things to have. If you leave your house for more than a few hours and your phone dies, you lose access to chauffeur driving services, maps, food location/delivery, calling, texting, and basically all methods of communication unless you happen to stumble upon one of the few remaining pay phones. So in short, everybody needs a mobile external charger...

Apple’s Silicon Strategy: How Apple’s Custom Chips May Change Their Product Lineup

Naturally, following Apple’s WWDC announcements on June 22nd, there has been a great deal of chatter and discussion regarding the future of the Mac now that Apple is transitioning to using it’s own custom designed chips. And naturally, we may have heard a thing or two from sources who have served us well in the past (including one of the sources that gave us great information on Apple’s AirPower plans). That being said: I have an immense dislike for rumors on an existential level. The level to which rumors...

Review: ARCHIMEDE Pilot Chronograph TriKompax Watch

The ARCHIMEDE watch brand is a relative new-comer to the market – only launching in 2003. The Ickler family that designs and produces these timepieces has been manufacturing watchcases for almost a century. The first ARCHIMEDE watch was modelled on the classic Pilot design with extremely easy to read dials and numerals and was very popular from launch. Following the launch of the Pilot, there have been a succession of other families of watches under the ARCHIMEDE brand – Klassik, DeckWatch, SportTaucher and OutDoor. All made with the same...

Review: MotionVFX – MO2 Studio Bundle for FCPX & Motion

Have you ever wondered how YouTube bloggers and reviewers get those incredible intro scenes at the beginning of their videos? Or while watching an amateur short film, you see some amazing 3d content that you know isn’t real but looks so beautiful? Obviously, your first thought is they paid for that intro. Or they used some very expensive professional programs that are way out of my budget. Well, this is where mO2 comes in. MO2 is a real-time 3d rendering engine that seamlessly integrates with Final Cut Pro X...

Review: FireCuda Gaming Dock 4TB + 1TB Extension

Is this illuminating, quietly fast warhorse external hard drive and docking station for me? It would seem that every person who has a computer, or more specifically, a slim laptop, should contemplate using an external drive of some sort. With so many external hard drives on the market, which type and brand is the best one for your personal needs? To start, let’s break down the needs and uses of an external HD.

Review: Genesis G70 2.0T Sport

I have often marvelled at car companies like Mercedes-Benz and Volkswagen who at the peak of their product offerings had ranges that spanned hundreds of thousands of dollars and addressed every market segment from micro to mega-luxury. Even today, Mercedes-Benz has a range that starts with the A180 and goes all the way up to the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class. Back in 2007 Hyundai launched a large saloon called the Genesis and marketed it as a ‘modern rear-wheel-drive sports sedan’ which it certainly was. Then in 2015 Hyundai split the Genesis...

Review: Creative SXFI AIR Headphones

With so many audio devices on the market nowadays, it can be hard for developers to find a niche that will make their brand stand out to consumers. In the end, most developers focus their energy and resources on maximizing qualities that are expected of a good pair of headphones or earbuds, such as bass strength, clarity, sound personalization options, and similar features. This is not necessarily a bad thing, since optimizing these qualities creates a selection of better products all around, but product diversity relies most heavily on...

Review: Crumpler Mantra Backpack

Crumpler has turned itself into a household name because of its functional, long-lasting, and sturdy bags for all kinds of activities, from going to school to backpacking across the country. This Australian company has launched an array of bags, including the Crumpler Mantra. The Mantra is a flawless combination of style, functionality, reliability and comfort. While it may look like a fashionable city bag, the Mantra was built for the road. Spacious and heavy-duty, this weatherproof backpack is enough to fit everything you could possibly need.

Review: Nebula Mars II Pro – Portable Projector

The compact, award winning, beautifully designed Mars II Pro is anything but basic. This little device can project a razor-sharp image with a perfected auto-focus up to a 150 inch display using DLP IntelliBright technology. If you move the projector, it automatically adjusts the focus and keystone. Don’t think because it’s a 720p image, it somehow should be overlooked or pushed aside. The image quality is so gorgeous and bright that it surpasses some of the other well known brands that showcase 1080p when set at the same distance....

Review: Autonomous – The Best Affordable Standing Desk

Most desks we inquire when searching usually have one main style and purpose, sitting or standing. The Autonomous Smart Desk DIY kit has features that create the perfect desk for anyone. It has the ability to adjust its height with a powered controller and control box installed and allows you to choose from 3 different styles. Office Desk, L-Shape & a Premium Office Desk Style.

Review: GRID Autosport – Best Mobile Racing Game

Some games just succeed at offering excitement and thrill without fail. You’re on the last lap, pushing the pedal and bumping the cars beside you. Everyone’s on a high to get to the finish line. You gun it and finally you zoom past the checkered flags. For a moment, you feel like you’re on top of the world. That is, before the next race, That’s the feeling we got from playing GRID Autosport. GRID Autosport was released in 2014 for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. It was the...

Review: 2020 Toyota Hilux Rugged X

Depending on where you grew up and whether your upbringing was urban or rural, it’s highly likely that you know what a Hilux is. Like Google or Atari or Qantas or GoPro, Hilux is a combination of letters that lacks any ambiguity. From movies such as Back to The Future to iconic TV shows such as Top Gear, the Hilux has been worshipped for its iconic looks and immense toughness. The latest and greatest version – the Rugged X – is a monument to the 52-year-old legacy that is...

Review: Dyson V11 Outsize Cordless Vacuum

I’m more used to reviewing cars but when I really think about it – it’s the engineering of a motor vehicle that really appeals to me. It’s the same with the Dyson V11 Outsize cordless vacuum that we’ve been using in the house during the COVID-19 Lockdown. It is an extremely thorough vacuum cleaner with some very clever technology baked in.

Review: Space Force Takes One Small Step Towards A New Comedic Hit

You may remember that way back in 2018, United States president Donald Trump announced a new sixth branch of the US Armed Forces: Space Force. A proposed branch of the military that would deal with space warfare was met with mostly unanimous mockery, but still it seemed to forge ahead. But it would seem that along with criticism and think pieces, the conception of the Space Force has also given us a brand new Netflix Original show from Greg Daniels and Steve Carell. Together, they form a formidable comedic...

Review: Lenovo ThinkBook 15

My plan is to approach this review in the same fashion that I write my car reviews. There are plenty of people out there that can talk about RAM and CPU and Inter CORE i7 processors. I’m nerdy, but not that nerdy. What I really want you to know is what this Lenovo Thinkbook 15 is like to live with. As such I’ve written this review on the very unit that Lenovo were good enough to lend me.

Review: Love Life – Fun Romantic Romp To Kickstart HBO Max’s Roster

With the launch of the new streaming service HBO Max coming at such a perfect time, everyone seems ecstatic to have another silver tray of entertainment options delivered (contact-free, of course) right into their homes. Right off the bat, there are plenty of different TV shows and movies both old and new to be watched on this service, but perhaps most interesting are the new Max Originals that will be coming out both immediately and over time. Things like a Gossip Girl sequel/reboot, an Adventure Time revival miniseries, and...

Review: 2020 Renault Kadjar Intens

The Renault brand has been around for 120 years since being founded by three brothers in 1899. In that time, the company has diversified like many European car-makers into everything from tractors to trucks to EVs to world championship-winning Formula 1 engines.

Review: The Wrong Missy

Netflix has been on a roll lately with releasing plenty of new content to keep us occupied in times like this, everything from fun reality TV like The Circle to exciting action films like Spenser Confidential to fantastic animated shows like the rebooted She-Ra. It’s nice that there’s truly something for everyone right now, and more is being added to their roster by the week. Currently, one of their newest additions is The Wrong Missy, a movie directed by Tyler Spindel, a stand-up comedian who is still a relative...

Review: Creative SXFI Theater

There’s no doubt that wired headphones are king, but each struggle to untangle those annoying headphone wires, more and more people are ditching their wired headphones for wireless ones. Now, before you go, “Bluetooth headphones have delay!” because of the latency issues that average wireless headphones have, Creative has actually solved that issue with their Creative SXFI Theater. You can still be immersed in your movies or video games with full, booming surround sound that captures you from all angles. The Creative SXFI Theater was released late in 2019...

Review: TCL 10 Pro Review – Simply Put: Premium & Awesome!

TCL 10 Pro feels solid and premium. It has a sturdy metal frame and some nice weight to it, giving that build quality greatness. It has an In-display Fingerprint Sensor that works fast and is completely undetectable when not in use. The curvature of the glass screen is flawless and meets perfectly to the phones body, so you never feel a change in textures or an edge lip while swiping left to right with your thumb. TCL has done an amazing job compressing all their knowledge from the world...

Review: 2020 Mitsubishi ASX Exceed

There is a sweet-spot in almost everything we do. That point at which the delicate balance between needs and wants, night and day, fast and slow, or small and large is just right. For me, this was the lasting impression with the Mitsubishi ASX Exceed.

Review: I Know This Much Is True

Tragedy is one of the oldest genres of stories, and throughout the centuries we’ve been given new and varied ideas for tragic tales. They are one of the fundamental storytelling setups because no matter what the year is or where in the world you are, everyone can relate to tragedy. Even with many people in low spirits as they are right now, many can find comfort in a well-executed tragedy, but that sort of balancing act is easier said than done. Enter HBO’s newest show, I Know This Much...

Review: Paperlike iPad Screen Protector

The new Paperlike 2 Screen Protector retails for €34, £31, or $38 from their website paperlike.com, while not cheap compared to the average selling price of most iPad screen protectors, Paperlike can offer an experience like no other. I’ll be testing out the brand new Paperlike 2 on a 2018 iPad Pro 11” paired together with the second-generation Apple Pencil. The Paperlike 2 ships with two screen protectors and two installation kits which include two dust absorbers, two sticker guide sheets, two help stickers, two wet wipes, and one...

Review: Oris Big Crown Pointer Date Watch

Very few companies today have a 115 year heritage that has remained steadfast in its principles and values. It’s this heritage that keeps Oris at the forefront of watchmaking having “survived two world wars, crisis in the Swiss watch industry and the birth of the connected age.” An incredible story indeed. Scores of watches now make up the Oris collection – all manufactured at the company’s headquarters in Hölstein, Switzerland. We’ve been wearing a couple of timepieces from the Big Crown Pointer Date collection.

Review: Theragun G3PRO – A closer look at the heavy-duty percussion massager

More and more people are using percussion massagers for so many things. If you’re new to the game, percussion massagers loose up muscles that feel tight and knotted. They offer a lot more benefits than traditional massagers, and can help with pain relief, soreness, injury prevention, and muscle misalignment. Theragun is one of the leading brands of percussion massagers. Their latest massager, the Theragun G3 Pro, is one of the best of its kind and has received praises despite its hefty price tag.

Review: Bad Education Tantalizes Viewers With Sublime Casting

Last September, the Toronto International Film Festival saw the premiere of many promising films, all with varied genres and ideas put into them. Among these films was one called Bad Education, a half-biopic, half-comedy tale, telling a story of school embezzlement based on true events. It’s always exciting when a director gets their hands on a movie concept based in reality that’s stranger than fiction, because it means they’ve already got a fantastical narrative that begs to be presented in an engaging way. And this director, Cory Finley, seems...

Review: 2020 Isuzu D-MAX LS-T

When (as legend has it) a Gippsland farmer’s wife wrote to Ford Australia suggesting that they consider building a car that could “take them to church on Sundays and the pigs to market on Mondays” I doubt that the farmer or his wife would have pictured the pick-up / light truck market that we have today. Well beyond what we would call the humble “ute” is now a category that contains vehicles that have six figure prices and an array of features and options that boggles the mind. For...

Review: Sennheiser CX 350BT

Sennheiser is known for releasing a solid lineup of headphones and earbuds on the regular, so I was excited to hear that I would be able to test out and talk about their newest wireless earphones. I’ve found wireless earphone models to be one of my personal favorite designs when it comes to Bluetooth audio devices, as they can be used most anywhere and be practically forgotten about due to comfort, yet you can still easily remove one earbud for a moment if you need to speak to someone....

Review: Google Pixel 4 XL

In the great race of phone options that seem to be growing larger by the day, the Google Pixel model is a relatively recent addition to the competition. Manufactured by HTC, the first generation of this line only dropped in October of 2016, although it was somewhat of a spiritual successor to the Nexus phone brand. Upon release, it had its crowds of both energetic fans and no-nonsense critics, but that was 2016. Since then, the company has released a new model every year in October, respectively. They’ve had...

Review: 2020 Toyota Camry Ascent Sport Hybrid

Growing up, my Dad worked for a company specialising in agriculture. We spent many hours of our school holidays cris-crossing Western NSW visiting cousins and friends whilst Dad went about his business. His company cars back then were always Fords. First a couple of Falcons, then a Fairmont, before a few Fairmont Ghias, then Fairlanes as he ascended the corporate ladder.

Review: ASUS ROG Phone II

Republic of Gamers, the makers that brought us the original gaming phone, have come out with the next level of efficient mobile gaming – the ROG Phone 2. While the original phone was an interesting game-changer, critics agreed that there were quite a few features that could be added or improved on to make the device soar. Now we finally have their answer in the form of this phone, with its intimidatingly large yet smooth design and powerful processor, this phone is poised to become the face of optimized...

Review: 2020 Hyundai IONIQ Premium

Within a couple of hours I was out of a Nissan Leaf and into the Hyundai IONIQ Premium. Back to back from one all-electric 5 door hatch-back into another. The perfect comparative environment. My initial thinking was that these two EVs would be on the whole pretty much the same. They are both EVs, yes – however, the similarities for better and worse end there.

Review: Logitech MX Master 3

When upgrading their PC, most people rush to buy new video cards, keyboards, and monitors — but one thing that is commonly ignored is the mouse. When it comes to boosting productivity, the mouse is one piece of hardware that you need to invest in. The Logitech MX Master 3 targets advanced users like software developers, engineers, data analysts, and other professionals. Priced at $99, it’s a mouse that’s worthy of its name. This master mouse features an electromagnetic scroll wheel and customizable settings so that you can tailor...

Review: 2020 Nissan Leaf

I’ve always loved the 5-door hatch-back. Back in my youth, the Honda Civic was a favourite. My own car today is a Volkswagen Golf. A great combination of useable space, thrifty economics in terms of running costs, and occasionally a great drive when the moment and environment is right. As a result I was very much looking forward to my first proper experience in an all-electric car that was also a 5-door hatch. And so my week with the Nissan Leaf began.

Arts-n-Crafts with BWS

It was quite literally a dark and stormy night recently when we attended an evening of “Arts-n-Crafts” with the team from BWS. The event was held in the bowels of the old Readers Digest building in Surry Hills which is now home to Woolworths subsidiary Endeavour Drinks Group which covers brands like Dan Murphy’s, BWS, and Cellarmasters to name a few.

Review: Spenser Confidential – A Fun, Simple Romp Through An Action-Packed Mystery

If you’re the type to frequent bookstores, particularly within the mystery section, hearing the name of a detective named Spenser may ring a bell for you. Indeed, Robert B. Parker’s famed police investigator has been in the public’s eye for almost 40 years now, with his very first novel having been released back in 1973. Parker wrote a total of 40 Spenser novels up until his death in 2010, after which crime journalist and author Ace Atkins was selected to continue the Spenser saga, which is still ongoing as...

Review: 2020 Kia Sorento GT-Line

I’m writing this review the very week that Holden is farewelling Australia after 164 years of operation. From the very comfortable driver’s seat of the Kia Sorento GT-Line, I’m sorry to say that I am completely convinced that Holden’s demise was avoidable.

Review: Canon PowerShot G7X Mark III

These days, compact cameras have become fairly popular not only among photography enthusiasts, but also with the general users. While smartphones can do a good job in most situations, a real camera’s functions and controls can give superior images your phone will never manage to capture. Canon’s PowerShot G7 X is easily one of the most attractive cameras for vlogging. Its excellent autofocus (AF) system, coupled with image stabilization, a 24-100mm f/1.8-2.8 lens, and handy flip screen are all useful features for creating digital content. Its latest member, the...

Review: 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Exceed

I have to admit, I was perplexed in the lead-up to driving this week’s car and writing this review. The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Exceed was the second PHEV vehicle I had driven in two weeks. Déjà vu was kicking in hard as I hopped into the very comfortable front seats of the Outlander. “Remain objective…” I kept telling myself.

Review: Yale Assure Lock SL

How many times have you forgotten your keys when you leave the house? Once, twice, or maybe just like we have, you’ve stopped counting. You get home after a long day at work, excited to jump into your bed, when you realize — your keys aren’t in your pocket. The answer? The Yale Assure Lock SL. The Yale Assure Lock SL is the latest digital smart home security from the lock maker that has become a household name: Yale. For less than $300, you get a sleek, key-free touchscreen...
