A Response to the Daily Show’s Glass Segment

Hi Mr Stewart, I’m Ritchie, and I’m appalled at the conduct of your reporter, Jason Jones, in his duplicitous interrogation of those young men and women fighting for their rights to be given access to the bars and entertainment venues of their choice regardless of their borg transforming, openly mockable, slightly creepy headwear. For these […]

What’s in the Google Glass Bag?

If you’re at all interested in smartphones, and wearables, then you would probably have heard of Google Glass. In fact you might have heard of Google Glass for all the wrong reasons lately as well.

HTC One M8 First Look and Camera Demo

I have a confession to make. I have never used a HTC smartphone. Some of my friends own one, and I’ve always kind of looked at one from a distance, but I’ve never really spent much time digging deep into any particular model. Well, today that changes, and I’m here to give you my first […]

Samsung Galaxy S5 Preview

As I mentioned in the last article about the Galaxy S5, there are a heap of features that make it a stand out model for 2014. The Samsung Galaxy S5 has taken design cues from it’s bigger Note 3 brother and also presents a more hard-cornered profile with a removable, dimpled back panel that is […]

LG’s New Smartphone Ad Is Cringeworthy

We made a bit of fuss about the appearance of two curved phones back when LG and Samsung released information on their models – the LG G Flex, and the Samsung Round. However, I had NO IDEA that LG would produce such a memorably ad to support their new phone, and that it would go […]
