Anova Precision Cooker Review: Killer Sous Vide For Everyone

I have a problem. It’s a kitchen gadget addiction. Ever since I was a kid, I’ve always wanted to try the latest and greatest cooking appliances — or at least all the As Seen On TVand Sky Mall shit. Well, that addiction just paid off: The Anova Precision Cooker has been bringing me stupid amounts of joy for the past few weeks. Sous vide, anyone? This $229 gadget makes it so, so easy.


Microsoft Surface 3 Review: The Tablet I Want At The Price I Don't

I’m dancing on the grave of Microsoft’s original Surface tablet, and I feel no remorse. It’s hard to feel sad — it was a beautifully crafted ten-inch tablet that ran a crippled version of Windows. It was awful. Now it’s dead, and I’ve got a way better tablet. I’m so happy.


Asus Transformer Book T300 Chi Review: Won't Win Hearts, Will Turn Heads

So you want a laptop that turns into a tablet. No kidding! Plenty of people are jazzed by the idea of having a slate for sharing, plus a solid keyboard for typing. And the new Asus T300 Chi sure looks like a great pick: from just $1299 Australian you get a great looking PC that — both halves combined — is thinner than a MacBook Air. But that’s not quite the whole story.


PlayStation Vue Review: Online TV

Television is experiencing a digital renaissance. Cutting the cord no longer means severing you from live TV. We’re witnessing the birth of true internet television, and Sony’s PlayStation Vue is the service with the most to offer as of today.


We Tested Waterproof Down By Jumping In A Frozen Lake

Down is the most effective, commonly available insulator known to man. So long as you keep it dry. But new hydrophobic down coatings promise to retain its warmth when wet. We tested that claim by cutting a hole in a frozen lake and jumping through it.


Why Hammocks Suck

I’m writing this with a sore back and exhausted from not getting enough sleep over the weekend. Hammocks lure you in with the romantic appeal of above-the-ground, free swinging sleep, then pounce on you with a poorly insulated, biomechanically painful design.


HTC One M9 Review: A Great Phone That Can't Keep Up

Everyone loves an underdog. They’re new, exciting, and upset expectations. In 2013, the HTC One M7 brought that incredible disruptive energy to smartphones, and the following year’s M8 ran neck and neck with the best you could buy. Now, with the M9, the One is no longer an underdog — but it’s not exactly leading the Android pack, either.


Razer Blade 2015 Review: Finally Living The Thin Gaming Laptop Dream

Razer has spent years trying to build an impossible laptop — a powerful gaming portable with the facade of a thin business machine. It’s come close four times, but the Razer Blade has never quite managed to stick the landing. At least until now — I’ve spent the last two weeks with the new 2015 model, and it’s almost perfectly balanced.


BioLite NanoGrid Review: A Lantern, Battery And Torch All In One

This new BioLite NanoGrid functions as a hanging work light or lantern, a multi-point area light, a powerful torch and a portable power source for your electronics, all in a single $US100 product. The ultimate camping gadget? I got my hands on a unit to find out.


Review: The Delightfully Crazy MSI GT80 Titan Laptop

I’m typing this on a laptop with a real keyboard. Real, as in without the compromise in size, tactility or function that you’ve come to expect in laptops. I don’t really know how to express how strange that is.
