Samsung Gear S2: Australian Hands On

Samsung’s new Gear S2 smartwatch has been officially introduced to the world, and it’s actually pretty damn impressive. Google’s Android Wear ecosystem is about to get its first true competitor outside of the Apple Watch — it’s going to be a hell of a fight.


Samsung's Gear S2 Smartwatch Will Hit Australia Next Month, And It'll Work With Any Android Phone

Thinking of pulling the trigger on a new smartwatch purchase soon? Well, if there’s one in particular that you want, you don’t have to wait too much longer — Samsung’s new Gear S2 will be out in Australia within a couple of months, and you’ll be able to use it with any Android smartphone.


Hands On With LG's Rolly Keyboard For Tablets

In the middle of the throng at LG’s IFA 2015 booth, one little gadget got a surprisingly large amount of tech geek attention. The compact, portable and aptly named LG Rolly Keyboard is a super-convenient contrivance for tablet and smartphone typists.


LG's Watch Urbane Luxe Is 23-Karat Gold Bonkers

Android Wear watches are cool and all, but none of them are especially fancy. (Even the new Moto 360, with its flat tyre.) Until now, at least. An alligator leather wristband, 23-karat gold plating, and a $1000-plus price tag mean the LG Watch Urbane Luxe is a particularly niche geek accessory.


Use Dropbox To Keep A Shared List Of Links Or Bookmarks

Dropbox is one of those services that’s always getting a minor upgrade or two in the background without anyone really noticing. One of the newest features added to the web interface is the ability to drag-and-drop links into a Dropbox folder for safe keeping — the feature’s rather rudimentary right now, but it’s a useful way of collecting a bunch of links together and (if you need to) sharing them around.


Gizmodo Movie Night: Impress Your Friends With The Most Underrated And Underappreciated Movies And TV Shows

It’s almost the weekend, and that means you should book in another Gizmodo movie night. This week, polish your pince-nez, un-bend the corners of your copy of That Movie Book, and settle in front of the screen with a glass of wine and a plate of fine cheeses — these are the most underrated movies and TV shows streaming online right now.


Go Complete XKCD's Random Quiz In The Name Of Arbitrary Science

Most surveys are written with the intent of finding something out. The XKCD survey, written by stick-cartoonist extraordinaire Randall Munroe, doesn’t have an end game — it’s just trying to collect random information from as many people as possible, and then find unlikely correlations.


Google OnHub Review: Your Router Sucks, But Do You Trust Google?

Your router is the most horrible technology you deal with every day. This essential tool keeps your home connected to the internet, and yet, you keep it thrust in a dusty corner because it’s a wretched, opaque box of confusion. Google’s OnHub is a critical step towards helping you take control back from those miserable blinking lights.


It Turns Out There's A Much Cheaper Interactive BB-8 That Rolls And Talks Too

Sphero’s BB-8 will undoubtedly be one of the most sought-after toys heading into the holidays, but it turns out it’s not the only company who’s figured out how to bring BB-8 to life. This larger version of the droid isn’t remote control, but it can still roll, talk, and interact with kids through simple voice commands.


The Gear S2 Smartwatch Is A Good Idea, Racked With OS Growing Pains

Samsung has always, for the most part, marched to the beat of its own drum when it comes to smartwatches, making wearables with cameras, LTE and weird rotating bezels — all powered by its own OS, called Tizen. Although that first-party software allows Samsung to get creative with its wristputers, it also comes with unfortunate side effects.


Choice Says Netflix Is Killing Piracy In Australia In Problematic Survey

The launch of Netflix in Australia really is killing piracy. At least that’s according to a new survey. There’s a bit of a problem with that survey though, and it’s one that keeps popping up when we try to chart piracy.


An Extra Door On Samsung's New Washing Machine Lets You Add Last-Minute Additions

They’re more eco-friendly than top-loading machines, but front-loading washers don’t let you add forgotten garments once the wash cycle has started. With the addition of a second smaller door though, Samsung’s new WW8500 AddWash lets you toss in that missing sock you just found.
