Read more: Samsung Gear S Smartwatch Revisited – Did Time Stand Still?

Sometimes it is just nice to revisit a golden oldie... But in this case we are talking about a smartwatch that hit the shelves less than a year ago: the Samsung Gear S.

When it came out I was stunned at the supremely curved display and the fact that you can use it with its own Sim card.


There are dozens of reasonably capable smartwatches to choose from but this particular model still holds its price it seems so let’s have a quick look at some of the main features of this watch and where in some aspects where it falls down a bit...

For some trades an industrial labeller is essential. For others it’s a nice to have tool. I am one of those folks that hate to label people but love to label things....


So when 4Cabling sent us the Brother P-Touch E550WVP Industrial Labeller, we were keen to have a look at what can be done with a fully featured labeller.


And yes, I can see that it would be very useful beyond its intended target group.
I’ll show you why.

Sony SmartWatch 2: Still a Good Buy?

It's been nearly 2 years since we took a good look at the Sony SmartWatch 2 which had just been released then. It is a bit surprising that this watch is still being offered for sale well after its successor has become available. So what made this one a stayer? Can it still compete in the marketplace?


Sometimes it's good to have a look at a product when it is fully mature and when MobileZap sent us this one rather than the anticipated Sony SmartWatch 3 we departed from our usual approach to write only about the latest and the greatest...

So is the Sony SmartWatch 2 still worthy of your consideration?

 

Sony SmartWatch 2: Smart Enough?

There is no denying it: there will be a smart watch in your future!
There are dozens of manufacturers having something up their sleeves, literally. We have already seen the likes of Samsung Gear, Garmin, and Pebble.

We also had a look at the COOKOO connected watch which was rather disappointing as to its functionality both as a watch and regards its additional features.
And so was the Sony SmartWatch in its original version.

Does the SmartWatch 2 fare any better?

There is a lot of emphasis these days on living an active, healthy lifestyle and there are a plethora of gadgets and devices to help us achieve that. One of them is the Jawbone UP wristband. It is not only an activity monitor but it also keeps track of your sleep patterns. And for good measure it can monitor your food intake and calculate the calories that you then have to walk off....
But there is a bit more to this wristband so let me "walk" you through it.

Pocketbook Touch: Just Another Ebook Device?

When our favourite distributor AlTech took on a new line of products from Pocketbook and sent me one of the top models, the Touch, I had to wonder where the market for e-book readers is going to take us in the coming years.
With the proliferation of large smartphones and tablets, some of them as cheap as dedicated e-book readers, will there still be a market for the likes of Pocketbook Touch?

Poor Mobile Coverage at Home? The Telstra Cel-Fi Smart Antenna Solution

Read more: Poor Mobile Coverage at Home? The Telstra Cel-Fi  Smart Antenna  Solution
I have never considered myself a fringe dweller except when it comes to mobile phone coverage, stuck at the fringes of Telstra's network. There are thousands of people in the same situation who have been relegated to second class citizenship in this 21st century when it comes to mobile connectivity.  For years you've been paying for missed calls, dropped calls not to speak of extremely poor wireless broadband.

You've tried all the solutions: rooftop antennas, blue tick phones, perhaps even looked at the promises made by repeater units....
Is there a real solution, one that is even sanctified by Telstra?

Google Nexus 7 --Reviewed

Read more: Google Nexus 7 --ReviewedEver since Asus announced their sub-$300 tablet at CES 2012, I have been itching to get my hands on one.  Then it all went quiet for a while until it resurfaced as a Google Nexus device.  I had a standing agreement with my wife that as soon as the Nexus 7 is launched I will be pre-ordering one and now DigitalReviews get to take a spin with it.

Best Tablet? Samsung Galaxy 7” Tablet P1000 – Review

Written by Joe Baker on . Posted in Mobile Devices

Read more: Best Tablet? Samsung Galaxy 7” Tablet P1000 – ReviewWell, we considered that we picked a good tablet last time, so let’s see how we fare with the Samsung Galaxy GT P1000N 16GB Next G and Wi Fi.

Once again, not Ice Cream Sandwich, but this one is a bit more suited to the “fairer sex” for hand span size. We deliberately went for the 7” because it is slightly narrower against the 7.7”and we believe that these two tablets will cater nicely for male or female alike.
