The Best Action Camera For Every Need

If I’m going to be doing stupid things that risk the health of my various important body parts — and I do, often — I want to make sure I capture those moments so I can relive them later. That’s how I elbowed my way into the action camera beat more than three years ago, and I haven’t looked back.


The Best Action Camera: Q2 2014 Edition

You can’t just do something dangerous and insane these days without filming it for posterity. And while action cameras let us relieve these life-highlights over and over, they aren’t all created equal. We decided to see for ourselves which one could handle your extreme adventures best.


Watch How America Is Getting Frozen In This Timelapse From Space

Hercules, Ion, evil polar vortexes and Disney movie marketing — the winter has come and United States is freezing. Scientists expect temperatures not recorded in two decades, as low as -34C. Here you can see it happening from space using NASA’s Aqua and Terra satellites.


Ion Air Pro 3: The Waterproofiest Naked Action Cam Around

Ion may not be the first name you think of when it comes to action cameras (or the second), but the company has been around for a few years.

Battlemodo: The Best Action Camera

Action cams have always sounded great. Just strap them to a bike, a surfboard, a car or a helmet, and record a ride from the daredevil’s point of view. Now they’re getting fancy, with full 1080p HD recording, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS. So which is the right one to capture your classic runs and epic wipeouts?


New iCade Peripherals Just Require Really Awesome Games

Ion Audio’s new iCade peripherals look really cool. I’ve been playing with the iCade for months now, and it’s great in every sense except the game support. Until the awesome iMame retro arcade emulator came along, most of the games sucked.


I'm A Little In Love With My New iPad Arcade Machine

Last night I sat in front of an arcade machine in a darkened room of my house and played ’80s arcade games until well past midnight.


First Peek At The JooJoo Tablet's Guts

When Jason first played with JooJoo’s tablet, he caught a fleeting glimpse of a 1.6GHz Intel Atom in the device’s BIOS. Via the FCC, now we know for sure: It’s based on the Atom processor, and as predicted, Nvidia’s Ion.


Nvidia Optimus Switched This GPU Off! I'll Yank It Out To Prove It!

The Nvidia Optimus seamlessly switches between GPUs based on need. And based on this fellow being able to yank out a GPU while the rest of a system is running, it works rather well too.
