Written by Kevin Cheng on . Posted in Accessories

Read more: thinkTankPhoto Retrospective Laptop Case 15LIt is no big secret that I am a fan of the thinkTankPhoto Retrospective bags. I have a Retro 20 which I use as an all-round camera bag and a Retro 50 for when I need to carry all the camera gear that I own. For a while the Retro 50 was repurposed as a laptop bag for work. Under the threat of a fate worse than death for non-disclosure - (such as permanent deprivation from coffee), I was given a Retrospective Laptop Case 15L to road test weeks before the official launch.

Read more: Qi Universal Wireless Charging PlateFor a few years now I have been hoping that wireless charging will become commonplace. Certainly the technology has been available, I remember reviewing such a system back in 2010. But it seems we are still on the cusp of the technology going truly mainstream with more devices starting to support wireless charging natively. Wireless chargers too, are becoming increasingly available at a reasonable cost. DigitalReviews has the pleasure of reviewing the Qi Universal Wireless Charging Plate courtesy of MobileZap.

The COOKOO Connected Watch: There Is an App for That....

It's not quite like my dress watch but rather chunky, cumbersome and connected.
Oh wait! Being connected is actually quite good as the COOKOO , just like its "real life" counterpart in some European clocks, is an announcer of sorts. For the times when your smart phone is just out of reach - but still within Bluetooth range - it will announce any missed calls, messages and emails. And when you can't find your phone. Yes, complete with the famous cuckoo sound, which I haven't heard for a long time in these parts.
Should you buy one?

Sometimes a headphone is not the best solution for listening to audio. For instance when you want to share some music from your phone with others. Or when you're doing some manual work where headphone wires will get in the way. I'm often in that last category when I like to listen to an audio book whilst doing some menial task that doesn't require much brainpower.


A Bluetooth speaker that easily connects with your phone is a pretty proposition for me.
The Arctic Sound S113BT is a handsome looking device but can it deliver?

Ever since I got my grubby little hands on the Asus Nexus 7, I have been looking for a case to go with it.  For a while I waited for the official "Travel Cover" thinking that would be the way to go.  But official cases are a bit like generic cases, usually drab, sometimes with an assortment of garish colours, mostly utilitarian and well, bland.  Then one day on my travels I stumbled across Waterfield Design who kindly agreed to provide DigitalReviews a Nexus
7 Smart Casefor review.

Wrapsol: the strongest gadget protector? - Reviewed

Read more: Wrapsol: the strongest gadget protector? - ReviewedI am generally not a fan of screen protectors. I have used many different types in the past which were often hard to apply, left some air bubbles and hindered the interaction with the screen. And recently most of my gadgets featured some type of Gorilla glass which makes them almost impervious to scratches. But there are situations where a full body armour might be the best way to protect your precious link to the wonders of the World Wide Web….

Tim Overheu recently checked out what is arguably the strongest protective film technology for the iPad and here is his review.

Read more: J5create Wormhole Station: Fastest connection through Cyberspace?Recently we needed to move files from one laptop to another and even though there are several ways of accomplishing that, we were able to do this in a most elegant way with a wormhole. A what? Wormholes are always associated with shortcuts you can take through space-if the theory is correct…

So the naming of this latest J5create product is rather telling: it suggests a fast and easy way through cyberspace with two connected computers.

Let's see how it works.

Think Tank Photo Retrospective 20 --Reviewed

Written by Kevin Cheng on . Posted in Accessories

Read more: Think Tank Photo Retrospective 20 --ReviewedFor the longest time I have been on the lookout for the "perfect" camera bag, a combination of functionality, storage, durability and most of all, does not scream "steal me I'm a camera bag with expensive gear".
 
I found the Think Tank Photo Retrospective a while back, looked around some more and just kept coming back to it. 

Many thanks to the team at Think Tank Photo who kindly provided a Retrospective 20 for review.
