We have done a fair few reviews over the last few years featuring vacuum cleaners. Dyson took the lion share of these but when one of our editors got hold of the Bissell AirRam vac some time ago, I knew that we would hear more from this American company.
Today we are reviewing a multitasker that has just launched here in Australia: the Bissell Vac & Steam.

The great thing about the latest model in the Galaxy S series is that it is waterproof to some extent but this also means that the USB charging port had to be covered up.

This little extra step in recharging your phone may not be the sole reason for wanting to look at wireless charging so let's see what else is on offer from Samsung to make life a little bit easier.

Today we are looking at 2 "official" solutions: the S Charger kit and the S View cover.

So let me explain it in layman's terms. This is easily the most secure, the toughest, and the largest capacity drive (up to 6 TB!) you can buy for a fairly reasonable amount of money in 2014.


Let's see what is inside this Fort Knox of HDDs.

Most things of value are worth protecting. Particularly when you're travelling with it. You buy a new phone and the first accessory you buy is probably a decent case. Same with the Phantom 2 Vision. If you just fly from your backyard or your local park you can do without a case but if you go further afield a strong case is a must.


Today we are reviewing the GoProfessional hard case which impresses on a number of levels.
