Garmin Fenix 2 Watch Review: Jack Of All Trades, Master Of Many

The Fenix 2 is the watch Garmin has made to appeal to active people who might end up doing… well, just about anything outdoors. It’s not just for runners, just for swimmers, just for snowboarders, or just for hikers, it’s for people who want a single watch to track their complete athletic lifestyle. The good news is that the Fenix 2 is truly fantastic for almost all of those things. Almost.


Moshi SenseCover Review: Answer Your iPhone Without Opening Its Case

If there’s one thing that can divide iPhone users, it’s the debate over whether to hide their precious handset inside a fancy case. Some prefer the feel of a naked iPhone in their hand, while others don’t trust themselves carrying it around unprotected.


Moto X (2014) Review: Still The Android Phone For Everyone

The original Moto X, which debuted last year, was a different breed of smartphone. Rather than trying to build a beast with the best screen and the most horsepower, Motorola focused on the user experience above all else. The result was a phone that was so intelligent and comfortable to use that it almost didn’t matter that it was out-gunned in a lot of ways. Well, the 2014 model is here. Not only does it retain that same sublime user experience, it comes out guns blazing.


Infiniti Q50: Australian Review

I went for a drive last night. I didn’t have a destination in mind. I just clipped my belt and started driving around Sydney, drinking in the beautiful light of our nation’s largest city and enjoying the luxury of the car I had to review. It’s called the Infiniti Q50, and I want to be in it and driving more than I want to be in my lounge room at home going nowhere.


Moto 360 Smartwatch Review: The Best Might Not Be Enough

Early this year when Google first announced Android Wear, it teased us with the Moto 360. It was by far the best-looking smartwatch we’d ever seen. Many months later it’s here at last. It’s the best Android Wear device yet, but with the Apple Watch looming on the horizon, it’s no longer clear if that’s good enough.


Acer Chromebook 13 Review: With Great Power Comes An Iffy Screen

Nvidia’s Tegra K1 is an absolute blast in an Android tablet, and now the Acer Chromebook 13 is slapping it in a laptop body too. The result isn’t perfect, but it’s a promising look at where Chromebooks could go.


Moto 360 Battery Life Test: So Far, Not As Bad As You Heard

Battery life is generally the slowest thing to test on a gadget, and it’s almost always the toughest to get right. There’s just no way to rush it, and there are just so many variables regarding how people use a particular gadget that it’s always one of those “your mileage may vary” type of situations. Last week, some very early reviews of the Moto 360 smartwatch lambasted its weak battery performance. It’s possible they may have jumped the gun.


Tamagotchi 2014 Review: My Pocket Friend Left Me Before I Could Kill Him

Remember Tamagotchis? Of course you do. They taught you about responsibility. They taught you about friendship. But most importantly, they taught you that friends don’t leave friends in rooms filled with their own feces. Now, it’s time to reopen those old, grief-stricken wounds. The Tamagotchi is back — and it is still hungry.


AMD Radeon R9 285 Review: The New $250 Video Card To Beat

With the series having already exploded onto the market this year, a new Radeon 200 graphics card may not make for the most exciting headline, but this one is a little different than most other Radeon 200s considering it isn’t a rebadged HD 7000. Codenamed “Tonga Pro”, the new Radeon R9 285 takes the latest technology from the R9 290 range and makes it more affordable.


Holden Trax LTZ: Australian Review

If you’ve got kids, or have to commute to work around school drop-off time, you know how it can be driving through a school zone clogged by obnoxious soft-roaders. They’re big, they’re impassable and tough to get in and out of tight spots when you’re the one in the driver’s seat, especially in the city. When it came to getting behind the wheel of the Holden Trax LTZ, however, we were pleasantly surprised by its departure from class.
