Hardware Review – Official Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Qi Wireless Charging Kit

51026Keeping my Note 4 charged is a never ending battle. Coming from a Sony Xperia Z series means I’m used to 4 days battery life and the Note 4’s impressive screen real estate and snappy processing capabilities reduce that to a day at best.

Science is sexy – Mitochondria

Movie Review – Indie Game – The Movie

by Gouanaco (aka Max Winzar)

Indie Game – The Movie does a very good job of presenting what the life of a few Indie Game developers is like. Not just showing their success but also there hardships and problems that they encounter.

Hardware Review – Jabra Wave+

Spending up to 4 hours a session on a mobile phone a bluetooth headset isn’t so much an accessory as it is a requirement for day to day business.

Thanks to the boys over at MobileZap for getting one to me promptly (my old headset had fallen in a puddle) who provided the Jabra Wave+ for review.
