Samsung Gear S Review: But I Don't Wanna Be Dick Tracy

Samsung started the smartwatch push in earnest with its over-the-top Galaxy Gear just last year. Now, some six smartwatches later, Samsung is releasing one that can make its own calls. The Gear S is a tiny phone on your wrist. But is that really a good idea?


Microsoft Surface Pro 3 Review: The Ultimate Outdoor Computer?

Need to edit photos and videos in the field? How about the forest or up the side of a mountain in Iceland? All while filing stories as you go? We do, and we’ve been dragging the new Microsoft Surface Pro 3 around to get that job done. Here’s how it performs.


Samsung Galaxy Note Edge Review: This Crazy Smartphone Ain't Half Bad

You’ve never seen anything quite like the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge. The phone looks like it’s melting. The entire right edge of the device is a second screen. And though it feels like a gimmick at first, that extra, angled real estate can be surprisingly cool.


The Best Indoor Drone For Every Need

So you want to be a drone pilot? This is where you start. Not with a crazy $US1200 semi-autonomous eye in the sky, but a cheap miniature quadcopter. Chinese companies are pumping out truckloads of mini quads right now, and while they can’t find their own way home, they can teach you the basics of how to fly a speedy four-propeller craft for under $100 even in a tiny apartment. They won’t make cops nervous, and they’re an absolute blast to fly around.


I Wish This iPhone Flash Drive Worked Better

I have no idea why Apple still sells iPhones and iPads that have only 16GB of storage. But wouldn’t it be great if you could just plug in a flash drive that added more? The SanDisk iXpand wants to be that drive. Sadly, it’s not.


Nexus 6 Review: It's Time To Go Big

The Nexus 6 is f**king huge. It’s also the best big phone I’ve ever used. Hell, it’s one of the best phones I’ve ever touched. I never want to give it up. It’s that good.


Nerf Rhino-Fire Review: The Most Badass Foam Blaster Ever Built

Remember when you had to pull back a Nerf gun’s plunger and load a new dart for every single shot? That was a loooong time ago. The new Nerf Rhino-Fire rains down 50 rounds of fully automatic flying foam from its dual drum magazines and twin oscillating barrels.


Belkin Thunderbolt 2 Express Dock: Australian Review

It’s baaaaaaaack, he said with an obnoxious musical twang. Belkin’s follow-up album to the original, weirdly expensive/oddly compelling Thunderbolt Express Dock is here. While it’s still expensive and odd, it’s still stupidly handy to have on your desk. Here’s why.


August Smart Lock Review: A Great Lock That Moves With You

Smart locks, along with intelligent lights, are the standard bearers for today’s home automation movement with some of the biggest names in security — looking at you Schlage and Qwikset — offering internet-connected locks. But a San Francisco-based upstart may have just beaten these industry titans at their own game.


Big Hero 6 Review: An Underdog Adventure Where Robots Have Hearts Too

Big Hero 6 is Disney and Marvel’s new robot adventure that takes place against the backdrop of the fictional San Fransokyo. It’s a huge and beautiful new world, and although the plot isn’t perfect, the movie is worth seeing for the robots, the city alone, and the jokes alone.
