1

IMG_0002 copyIt was the arrival of the original GoPro HD that saw action cameras come of age.  Before then, they’d been chunky affairs, lacking quality optics and the rugged requirements of an action-addict. Since then,  lots of imitations of the GoPro have surfaced, though few have managed to compete with the quality of the diminutive action camera. Enter: The full HD ISAW EXtreme action camera.  Is this the camera that could finally take it to GoPro?

Narrative Clip Review

1

NarrativeGifIn early Autumn 2013 we started seeing the new wave of wearable cameras make their way on to the market, with the Autographer from Oxford Metric Group leading up the charge.  In November I visited The Gadget Show Live @Christmas, where I had my first hands-on with the Autographer.

HTC Desire 300 Quick Review

0

IMG_0003 copyThe HTC One might have grabbed headlines as a classy flagship of HTC’s 2014 lineup, but there’s still plenty of space at the opposite end of the spectrum, where cheap Nokia Windows Phones and Motorola Es and Gs are doing incredibly well here in the UK. HTC’s latest affordable handset is the Desire 300, and it’s got all the specs you’d expect if you didn’t want to get the incredibly good value Moto G. Does the Desire 300 compete? Let’s take a closer look.

Sennheiser Momentum Over Ear Review

0

Sennheiser_momentum_4Here at Technow, we like things loud. Lucky for us, I got my hands on a pair of over ear Sennheiser Momentum. These headphones promise to be a sensory delight. But do they meet my expectations? The momentums are Sennheiser’s attempt to produce a pair of cans that are desirable for everyone. Monster Beats got this spot on with their bold design, and clever marketing campaigns; and even though the audio quality doesn’t warrant the cost, children, students and adults alike spend hand over fist for the looks.

0

HPChromeBook11(11)When Chromebooks first appeared, there was confusion as to what niche they were trying to fill, whether anyone would buy a machine which relies largely on Internet connectivity for functionality, and if manufacturers were going to take Google’s netbook replacements seriously.  May 2011 seems like a long time ago, and it’s only now that Chromebooks are starting to gain traction and become relevant. So is HP’s first effort any good? Read on to find out.

HTC BoomBass Speaker Review

0

IMG_0036 copyIn the words of The Fresh Prince, backed by DJ Jazzy Jeff, “Boom! shake-shake-shake the room, Tic-tic-tic-tic Boom!” And with that, I present to you an unusual smartphone accessory in the form of the HTC BoomBass.  It’s a Bluetooth speaker cube that pairs via NFC, and has a rather novel sliding base on which you can rest your smartphone. The curious part? It’s not a normal speaker. So if you own one of HTC’s One smartphones, keep reading…

Archos GamePad 2 Review

0

IMG_0009In February 2013, Archos released the original Gamepad.  As the first gaming-centric Android tablet it received reasonable attention, but failed to inspire any real buzz around it.  This was mostly because it looked like a tablet with hastily added on gaming controls that were neither responsive, or pretty. Fast-forward a year and Archos hopes to produce a tablet that can be considered a proper gaming machine.  Did they succeed? Let’s find out.

The Elder Scrolls Online: Review

0

tesoFor many (including myself), The Elder Scrolls series has come to represent the crown jewel of single-player RPG’s. The series, last served by an immensely popular fifth instalment, is what most tend to think of first when it comes to this genre, and for good reason! My own interest in The Elder Scrolls series comes not from long-time fan loyalty, but from a critical admiration of the series’ focal design ethic, and the consistent level of quality that it is delivered with. After putting in thirty to forty hours in the beta and retail release, I felt ready to pen my thoughts – read on to find out what they were.
