Read more: Australian Bushfire Season 2019-2020It is rare for me to not reasonably inform of current events. With the holiday season devoted to a renovation and a house move, I only stop to spend some precious moment with my family. It is much to my dismay and horror to realise the full extent of the devastation that Australia is facing.

Read more: Waterfield Mezzo Backpack LaunchQuite some time ago, I reviewed a Waterfield tablet case and came away extremely impressed with the quality and finish. To ring in a new year, they have launched the Mezzo Laptop Backpack. Waterfield describes it as "a sophisticated midsized pack with padded laptop and tablet compartments, large water-bottle pockets on either side, and a front, pleated pocket inspired by old-world saddle pouches that closes with a sumptuous, full-grain leather flap." Judging by the picture, it certainly looks the goods!

Firstly, I would like to thank Martin and Arjan for building a solid platform with DigitalReviews.Net (DRN), and keeping me in the DRN family for the last 13 years. I still remember my "job interview" in 2007 - somehow scoring one of the GPS HUD units to review and I had my '06 Saab 93 Aero (the last of the true Saabs before the GM parts bin completely took over.)

After 15 Years of Publishing Has a New Editor!

Read more: After 15 Years of Publishing Has a New Editor!First up: a Happy New Year from the team here at DigitalReviews!

New beginnings and fresh starts are always exciting and after a decade and a half at the helm of this review site it’s time for me to step down.
It’s no early retirement for me at 72 as I’ll keep on writing and contributing to the website I started as PocketPCReviews and which soon outgrew that pre-smartphone segment.

So we renamed it to (DRN for short) and kept growing. My son Arjan has been the webmaster from the very beginning and every few years redesigned the site to keep it up to date.

It was great to develop relationships with manufacturers and tech companies and their representatives to the point where they often would send us the latest and greatest in their new product range. We’ve had many a scoop review and high rankings in Google Search.

Twitch TV and the Rise of Live Gaming

Read more: Twitch TV and the Rise of Live Gaming

The emergence of Twitch TV has heralded a new step in the evolution of the gaming market, by enabling players to record live gameplay and broadcast this to a network of followers. This is part of a rapid and relentless evolution, which has seen desktop and mobile gaming thrive on innovation and overpower the once dominant console sector.

This trend is unlikely to abate any time soon, as the rigid and costly nature of console gaming continues to fail in the wake of more flexible and immersive mobile experiences. With cross-platform gaming technology also making a more diverse range of titles available on the desktop, video games are continuing to lose their market share.
