Disclaimer: Yes, we bought into the Hue ecosystem, meaning that just like Lego we want to have all the bits and pieces that Philips/Signify/Hue bring to the market.

In every colour. In every shape.

Today we look at the PLAY component. 16 million colours in a svelte, black unit that can sit unobtrusively behind your television or game monitor, casting a soothing backlight or vivid auroras of light that match what’s on your screen or sync with your music.

“..Goodbye cruel world, I'm leaving you today, there’s nothing you can do to make me stay, goodbye...”
There’s no need to escape the world any longer..

Testing out the Jabra Elite Active 45e wireless buds, I trialled a little Pink Floyd for sound quality (opening line is from 'dark side of the moon', for those not born before the invention of electricity..), a nod in the direction of my first encounter with high- fidelity music through a (then) quality sound system; a mahogany-veneer Marantz stereo system with speakers big enough to hide inside.

Here at DigitalReviews we thought it would be a good time to look at the state of play with the current G903 with the PMW3366 12k sensor in eager anticipation.

The folks over at Logitech were generous enough to send along a Powerplay Wireless Charging System with it.

Read more: Calming Blanket - The Grasshopper Lies HeavyAbout a month ago I wrote a review on Glow Dreaming, a device that is designed to be sleeping aid for children.

My oldest boy Master L has always taken a while to fall asleep for one reason or another, and I have really been wanting to try a weighted blanket to see if it will help.

The folks over at Calming Blankets kindly tossed a discount code my way.

How did it work for my son?

Sometimes simplicity is THE secret sauce for a storage solution.

Regular readers of this site will have seen our previous Drobo reviews – both network and direct attached storage models which we rated very highly for their user friendliness and apparent simplicity. I say “apparent” as the magic to make the Drobos so user friendly is anything but simple.

So today we have a short review of a DAS unit with a gigantic storage capacity: the Drobo 8D.
Eight bays that you can fill up with the highest capacity hard drives you can afford.
Let’s have a look at some of the features.

Read more: Logitech M350 Pebble - A Pink Digital DiamondIt is a running joke between my partner and I, when I randomly send photos of packets of Burger Rings and Cheezels popping the "big" question.

So when the opportunity came along to review the Logitech Pebble M350, I figured I can do it with a rose pink "diamond". Props to my editor Martin who was in on it too.

With thanks to Logitech for their continued support, we get to test drive this "Minimalist. Modern. Silent." wireless mouse.

When I received the email offer to review these buds, I was quite literally entangled in wires from my daily headphones, trying to take a call, listen to a podcast and read my emails..

The opportunity seemed fortuitous and timely.

Voltaire Smart Grinder - Quest to waking up to freshly ground coffee

MiscellaneousWritten by Kevin Cheng on .

Read more: Voltaire Smart Grinder - Quest to waking up to freshly ground coffeeThe Voltaire Smart Grinder was a Kickstarter project by Get It Right with a lofty project statement. "Making fresh coffee is as much an art as it is a science. And truly awesome coffee starts with two things: fresh beans and a great grinder. We've taken these two critical elements - fresh beans and consistent grind - and combined them into one amazing machine: Voltaire."

The Voltaire Grinder can be paired with an airtight container (for storage of grounded coffee). Both the grinder and container can become "smart" with the addition of a sensing platform that is design to keep track of how fresh the coffee beans are, and how much there is left in the hopper or past their prime and re-order on your behalf.

So, how did we go?
