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.

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...

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

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 – Built the Google Way

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 – The Cool and Fast Game Changer

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.

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.
