In the past few years we have seen the rise and rise of Internet of Things (IoT). From a technical perspective, IoT are objects that can collect and exchange data based on electronics, software, sensors and network connectivity. TrackR Bravo is an IoT device that leverages crowdsourced GPS (via smart phones) to help the masses track down items that are misplaced, lost or stolen. DigitalReviews undertook a self-funded journey to see how well this execution works.
With thanks to Synology, DigitalReviews get to review the Synology RT1900ac Router - a high-speed wireless router designed for homes and offices.
Having recently written about the original Gear S smartwatch, which was the ostentatious and very curvy SIM equipped computer on your wrist, we now go to the realm of the normal-sized smart timepieces with the Gear S2.
Our friends at MobileFun sent us the Classic version which is the slightly more expensive one which comes with leather straps and an indented rotating bezel.
This is the first smartwatch I actually care to wear all the time.
This is why.
Thanks to MobileZap , DigitalReviews get to play with the Spigen Rugged Armor Nexus 6P Tough Case.
I have to admit slipping a black case onto my silver Nexus 6p feels a bit incongruous. Those thoughts slip away when I started using the product.
The Spigen Rugged Armor Tough Case looks the good and feels great, with carbon fiber panels at the top and bottom of the case giving it a touch of subtle highlight.
As part of my "Welcome to Nexus 6p" kit from Mobilezap, a USB Type-C 3.1 Male to USB 3.0 Male Cable!
There are a few big players in the virtual reality field, Occulus Rift amongst others comes prominently to mind. There are a few other players in the field however, and some are going down the lo-tech path. VR is hardly a new idea, having been kicked around for ages in real life, and far longer in movies and TV. The high tech path is still an expensive proposition, but there are cheaper alternatives becoming available. With thanks to MobileZap, DigitalReviews got to try out the Archos Virtual Reality Glasses.
Now that I can charge up my Galaxy S6 in next to no time (relatively speaking) through its proprietary fast charge unit, I want every device that I possess to be able to have that capacity.
This is where PortaPow saw the need and has come to the rescue with its PortaPow Fast Charge Data Block Adaptor and Cable.
Does it work?
This time around we also stuck with the original Samsung products in the hope of a better user experience.
We might change our mind on one of these products though...
Terms like virtual reality and augmented reality have been around for some time and it is only fairly recently that we have some applications and hardware available for consumers to test out these concepts.
One of the arguably better headsets seems to be the Zeiss VR One, which is the one that MobileZap sent us to test out.
Did it live up to expectations?
Well, it shows great potential, but...
let's see how it all panned out for me.
