RAVPower PB-13 Portable Power Bank

Every year, our power needs grow. Tablets get bigger, phones get more needy. Portable power is pretty much a must for anyone travelling or for someone that works away from a power source all day. The good news is – there are hundreds (if not THOUSANDS) of choices for portable external battery chargers. The bad…

Taotronics Bluetooth Speaker TT-SK01

I wasn’t really in the market for a Bluetooth speaker, but my wife was interested in something for her classroom.  Something small, cheap, portable and easy to use – something she could take to school (she’s a teacher) and use to listen to music when class isn’t in session.  Since her students have light fingers,…

Samsung Galaxy S4 (Verizon)

Recently I moved “up” from the Samsung Galaxy Nexus (just Gnex from now on) to the Samsung Galaxy S4 (just S4 from now on) – both on Verizon. You can read my write up on the Gnex here. I’ve been asked to give my opinions on the new S4 and while I covered it on…

RAVPOWER WiFi Disk/Power Bank (RP-WD01)

I can barely contain myself long enough to write this review.  For the longest time I’ve been searching for the ultimate, portable solution for storage for my non-microSD slot Nexus phones and tablets. We need more storage.  No matter how much memory your device has on board, you need more; movies, documents, music, personal files…

X-Plore File Manager (Android)

File management is not a part time gig for me. If there is a storage medium attached to the device I’m using? I want the most power possible in accessing and manipulating it. It doesn’t matter if it is a local drive, flash drive, network drive, FTP site, Google Drive … if it stores files,…

Review: Pocket Tanks (Android)

Artillery games are nothing new … Set your angle. Compensate for the wind. Set your power. Hit fire. Give an evil chuckle when you hit your enemy. Wash, rinse and repeat. In fact, before Solitaire became the “installed on every computer” go-to game, some form of Artillery was pre-installed on most computers (or at least…

Review: Samsung Nexus 10 Tablet

Before we settle in with the wash and rinse review of the tablet, you should hear a bit about my back story so you know where I’m coming from.  While not essential for the review, it will give you a good idea what mindset I come from with regards to tablets.  If you’re only interested…

Wii U: Launch Day Impressions

As someone fortunate enough to be enjoying my Wii U on launch day, I feel it is my responsibility to tender my experience here for my fellow Review Lagooners since I know a lot of people are taking a “wait and see” approach to Nintendo’s new console. Therefore, I’ll take a very quick look at…

Nyko PlayPad for Android Devices Review

When it comes to hardware – “software is king”; after all – who wants a great piece of hardware with poor (or no) software available for it? Nintendo has proven that they can take low spec machines and pump out great software for it – and make a killing. Microsoft is combating the “end of…

Secret Treasures: SpaceSniffer (Windows)

If you work with computers long enough, you’re bound to create an arsenal of “secret treasures”; little programs that you may only use once a year – but are indispensable when you do need them.  Every time you use it, you think to yourself, “What would I do without this?” and you wonder whom else…
