It’s been a while since I last reviewed a smartphone so it was with great anticipation that the first smartphone I got a chance to play around with after all these years was Google’s first (but sadly the last smartphone) budget-conscious smartphone, the Moto G.
Kingston is a renowned maker of memory and storage solutions. To meet demands of the mobile consumer, Kingston has released the MobileLite Wireless (MLW), described as a reader, media streamer and USB charger. Multi-talented? Indeed.

Jabra, experts in portable audio solutions, recently introduced its new line of portable speakers – an enhanced second generation Solemate, new Solemate Max and Solemate Mini.

Astro launched its next generation multilingual TV guide late last month, the first of its kind in Malaysia. The revamped interactive guide is available to all Astro B.yond customers starting 24 February 2014 onwards. I had the privilege to beta-test the service before it was rolled out.
Toshiba went on a no holds barred refresh journey of its notebook portfolio mid last year, introducing the Qosmio X75 gaming notebook, the premium Satellite P series, the sleek Satellite S series, mainstream Satellite L series and entry-level Satellite C. Earlier, we had reviewed the Satellite L40 notebook targeted at students and entry-level users. Slightly higher up the range, we […]
I have to admit: I enjoyed my time with the Alienware 17. My home mid-range AMD rig was left abandoned throughout the time the monolith of a notebook stood on my desk. Continuing from Part 1 of the review, let’s look closer at the performance supported with some benchmarks and real-world gaming.
Alienware is a name synonymous with gaming hardware since 1996 and has been a brand of choice for many gamers both casual and hardcore. In June 2009, Alienware introduced the M17x, its first gaming product since the Dell acquisition. Now Dell’s premium gaming brand, Alienware has continued to churn out gaming notebooks and PCs with its distinctive alien-themed industrial design. […]
The Surface was Microsoft‘s first real foray into the hardware business. If anything, it proved one thing. Microsoft can make excellent hardware. Coupled with Windows 8 (and its RT variant), the Surface and Surface Pro later on proved that tablets weren’t just devices for play and content consumption, but could double up as productive, content creation devices too.

The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8 has been impressive thus far with its innovative multi-mode industrial design and impressive build quality. Looks can be deceiving though, so let’s look at how it performs in benchmarks and real world tasks.
Ashton says you should give it a go. So should you? The Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8 is what Lenovo is calling a multi-mode device, and I had found it practical if quirky in my first impressions. The 8-inch display seems to hit a sweet spot for me (there’s a 10-inch version of the tablet as well), but how does this […]
Bose is a name synonymous with premium audio products from full-on home entertainment systems to personal audio. So it may seem natural to get into the growing mobile Bluetooth speaker market. One that’s also very crowded with traditional players likes Logitech, JBL and Jabra. Bose has of course been there before, with the original SoundLink Bluetooth Mobile Speaker. This time […]
Toshiba did a big refresh of its PC line-up mid last year, unveiling a strong portfolio of notebooks including the Qosmio X75 gaming notebook, premium Satellite P series, Satellite S series, entry-level Satellite C series and mainstream Satellite L series.
