Faceoff Wired Pro Controller from PDP for Nintendo Switch

If you are anything like me, you have likely applauded Nintendo for the invention of the Joy-Con. Two together makes a full, regular sized controller, but on their own they can quickly provide flexibility by allowing two players to play instead of one. It is an ingenious bit of technology that makes the Nintendo Switch compatible for two players, right out of the box. But let's be real, if the opportunity was available, and funds unlimited, everyone would purchase 4 Nintendo Pro Controllers and be done with these Joy-Con controllers all together. Sadly, at ...

Samsung Gear S3 Frontier: Battery

One of the reasons most people shy away from smart watches is the assumed battery life such a device could have. Some of the fancy, higher tech devices require a charge every day and a half - which ultimately means you are charging every night to avoid it dying mid day. Even watches that claim to track your sleep become unusable as most individuals are popping them on the chargers overnight, limiting some of the watches functionality that consumers paid for.

BlackBerry Motion Review

I've been using the BlackBerry motion for a good 2-3 weeks now, and I'm thoroughly impressed with the product in my hands. BlackBerry gets a lot of flack and hate, some deserved and some not, but with their latest two cell phones - the BlackBerry KEYone and the BlackBerry Motion - they are letting the cellphone marketplace know they are still alive and well, and ready for business. Whether a classy businessman, or someone who enjoys having phone and data security a key priority, you shouldn't look past the BlackBerry Motion for your next everyday smart phone.
