Black iPhone Battery Pack Unboxing by Exolife
Recently I got in contact with Exogear and they have sponsored this unboxing of the Black Exolife iPhone Battery Pack.
My first impressions are that the packing is very well done, it looks super clean and sleek and looks very professional. It really makes you know that this iPhone Battery Pack was worth the money just by the packing.
Next, upon holding the case for the first time, I thought it felt a little light and was very slim. The site advertises the slimness and also it being very lightweight, but I didn’t expect it to be as thin as it was, so I was very impressed and happy with that, but for those of you who know my reviews, I like my products to have a little more weight to them, but that’s just my preference.
I will have the full review up by next week, so be sure to check back for that!
Now that I’ve had my iPhone 4 for a week or so, I think it’s time to get into the App Reviews Market, so the first App Review is going to be on Ninjump Deluxe Edition!
To start, keep in mind that there also is a free version of this app that gives you access to the full game, but only 1 map instead of a choice of 4 different maps, which, believe it or not, actually really do make this game much more enjoyable.
So to start, this app is $.99 in the App Store or Marketplace and it is produced by Backflip Studios, who also have made some other pretty big hits in the App world!
So as far as what the game is all about, well, basically, you’re a ninja, because, well, who doesn’t want to be a ninja?! The goal of this game is for you, the ninja, to run up the walls and slice all kinds of creatures in your way as you travel upwards to your goal of beating your previous high score.
As far as graphical design and responsiveness, I give Ninjump an A+. THe graphics are super crisp and really good looking, while the responsiveness could be a tad better, but is still by all means, very usable.
Overall there really isn’t much more to talk about, but if you’re looking for a game that never ends and allows you to just pick it up and play for 5 minutes while you’re waiting in line or at an appointment just to pass the time, then this is very much worth looking into!
It’s that time of year again and that time is the Holidays! Can you believe that it’s December already? This is just mind-blowing to me, but anyway, the point of this article is to show you my updated room tour for the 2010 season! So without further ado, let the desk/room tour of a geeks desk/room begin!
If there is anything that you saw in the room tour that I didn’t talk about long enough, leave a comment or send me an email and ask me whatever you were wondering about that specific gadget or game and I’ll be happy to answer you and even point you in the direction as to where you can purchase one for yourself to start making your room “tour worthy” just like mine!
One more note, I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year! This time of year really gets me reflecting on what I’ve accomplished over the past 12 months and what my future plans are for the upcoming year and I really enjoy hearing feedback from all of you guys about what you like/dislike and any changes or suggestions you have that you would like to see implemented in the future. So again, have an awesome Holiday season and spread the Holiday spirit to everybody you see!
After almost three weeks of grueling testing, I have finally formed my opinions on the Nox Specialist gaming headset. Before we get started, let me just say that I have put off buying a nice pair of headphones for quite a while now and now that I have finally got around to it, I am extremely satisfied with my purchase and I could bet you would be as well if you choose to purchase a pair!
I’m first going to start by going over the build quality and durability of the Nox Specialist gaming headset. Let me inform you that these headphones have traveled from Pennsylvania, to New York, to Florida, to Michigan, to Las Vegas and they’re still not broken or worn down in any way. This pair of headphones aren’t too bulky, but they hold their own when it comes to durability. These little guys can take a fair beating before they’re going to crap out on you, so you’re going to have to intentionally try and break these if they’re going to break at all.
Next up is, of course, sound quality. Now I was doubtful about this aspect, because they aren’t built for noise canceling, so I figured, if there’s outside noise, it doesn’t matter how good the sound quality is, if you can’t hear it, there’s no use for it. Thankfully, this wasn’t the case with the Specialist headset. These things can really pack a punch and they really have THE BEST sound quality I have heard in a long time. The sound sounds like you really have speakers all around you, they did an amazing job with these things and they are well worth the money.
The next aspect to cover is the comfort. I know a lot of people who will sacrifice a little bit of sound quality and even durability as long as the headset is comfortable. Well, the Specialist headset has memory foam earcups that just feel like clouds on your head. These are extremely comfortable and don’t squeeze your head and don’t even make your head get all hot because of them heating up your ears. There’s nothing here I can complain about, so that is a very good thing!
Were almost through, one of the last things I’m going to bring up are the features of this gaming headset. There is some really awesome designing that has been implicated with the Specialist Headset that I am really intrigued with. On the right ear cup there is a volume rocker and a mute switch for the microphone, which, by the way retracts on the left side so that when it’s not in use you can retract it and nobody would even know it’s there! The microphone by the way is also has amazing sensitivity and pics up so much sound so crisp and clear that it almost gets to be a pain, but better more than less. One other very cool feature is the ability to remove the wire, so that if the wire goes bad, the whole headset doesn’t get junked, all you have to do is replace the wire and the headset will continue to perform!
Compatibility is last, but for no specific reason. Nox advertises that the specialist headset can be used with Xbox 360, PS3, PC, iPhone iPods, Laptops, and many cell phones and other mp3 devices. This ability alone adds a TON to the value of this headset as far as I perceive it. I love gadgets that have multiple uses and this headset hasn’t let me down yet. These work great with everything mentioned above and they do their job just as you would hope they would.
Overall, I would say if you’re considering purchasing a higher end pair of headphones and maybe even considering a Turtle Beach headset, I would say give the Nox Specialist headphones a try, just see how you like them, because I know I sure am happy I gave them a shot!
