HANDS ON: PlayStation VR, is it worth the hype?

By on

TechGeek is currently at PAX Aus 2015 in Melbourne, and I was lucky enough to get my hands on the upcoming VR headset from PlayStation. There’s been a lot of hype about the hardware recently, with rumours of a new Until Dawn title being in development for use on the headset (and also general excitement that it’s even coming out). But I’m here to give the straight facts about this […]

Review: Grow Home for PS4

By on

Grow Home is my favourite game of the year. With a beautiful polygonal art-style, bright colours, and fabulous climbing mechanics, it’s admittedly simple, but perfect. And yet the PlayStation 4 port, which was just released today for free through PlayStation Plus, runs like crap on the console. But more on that a little later. As the game’s name suggests, Grow Home sees you grow a plant into the heavens.The bigger your plant […]

The Final Curtain: Batman Arkham Knight Review

By on

The Batman: Arkham trilogy has time and again proven itself to be one of the most popular games series on market. Arkham Asylum broke into the Guinness Book of World Records in the category of “Most Critically Acclaimed Superhero Game Ever” when released, and was only knocked out of the position by its sequel Arkham City. Arkham Origins, standing as a prequel to the pair, was not as groundbreaking, but was still met with positive reviews.

Review: Bose QuietComfort 25

By on

If you look around at any airport, you’re most likely to see at least one person with a set of Bose headphones. Why? Because they’re fantastic. The QuietComfort 25’s are no exception. With fantastic active noise cancelling features and sound quality that wow’s, you’d understand the $400 RRP price tag. The QuietComfort 25 is the first update to the headphones in over 5 years and the improvement in design and […]

FoodGeek: Cadbury Vegemite Chocolate Review

By on

Yes, we’re a little late to this party, but I thought it Cadbury’s Vegemite chocolate was still worth a taste-test from your trust-worthy FoodGeek columnist. Vegemite is such a weird thing as it is. It’s basically a salty, somewhat bitter product that looks deceptively smooth and creamy. And it tastes incredible melted into a warm, fluffy bit of white toast. But if you put it anywhere else you’ve lost me. […]

FoodGeek: Doritos Roulette Review

By on

There’s nothing worse than guilt walking, and yet it’s an activity I generally partake in at least twice weekly, usually following a binge on some terrible foods. Today, however, I embarked upon a different guilt walk, one that I’ve never really encountered, mainly because, as well as completely devouring an entire packet of Doritos chips, the actual eating itself included its own pain. And that’s because I was eating the […]

Review: Sony Smartwatch 3

By on

Smart watches are a brand new thing out on the market and we’ve been seeing iteration after iteration of models from different companies such as Pebble, Motorola, Samsung and LG. These manufacturers have been pushing out some pretty nifty products including the Moto 360, LG G Watch and Samsung Gear S, however, Sony has a bit of a hit and miss record with the original Smartwatch and Smartwatch 2 – […]

Inside Telstra’s $112 million George St Store

By on

While normally TechGeek wouldn’t review a store, I had the opportunity (well, I was walking past) to take a look at the recently revamped “Telstra Discovery Store” better known as the Telstra George St store. Back in late 2014, Telstra spent $112 million dollars revamping the store to turn it into a huge “collaboration space” for Telstra staff and guests. However, there certainly isn’t an absence of technology from the […]

Review: Parallels Desktop 10

By on

The last time we took a look at Parallels Desktop was Version 6, which was back in 2011! Now we’re at Parallels Desktop 10 and it couldn’t be better. Parallels Desktop is one of those go-to programs for your Mac when you need to virtualise an operating system (probably Windows) and it’s certainly sufficient to get the job done. In this version of Desktop, Parallels have improved the speed and […]

Review: Parrot’s Rolling Spider Minidrone

By on

Small enough to fit in the palm of your hand or your bag but noisy enough to annoy everyone around you – that’s the Rolling Spider Minidrone from Parrot. The Rolling Spider is a small and easy-to-use “drone” which is aimed at novices to get their piloting ambitions off the around (see what I did there?). Though small and compact, the Rolling Spider only has 8 minutes of flying time […]

Review: Sonos PLAY:1

By on

Sonos has been long known as that company which produces the really experience but really great speakers. Well, Sonos have released an entry level speaker called the PLAY:1 – it’s a little cheaper than the other models but still packs an incredible punch. I’ve had a few months with a pair of PLAY:1 speakers with the intention of pushing them to the limits and trying out the new Deezer Elite […]

FoodGeek: Pizza Hut’s Doritos Crunchy Crust Review

By on

The topping chosen to complete this review was part of the ‘Meatlovers’ range. I’m driving home from the local Pizza Hut, gliding through an almost empty trail of road. The smell of pizza wafts through my car, a can of ice-cold Mountain Dew splashing around in my cup holder. I can’t resist any longer. I have to at least have a chip. Just one chip off the Pizza Hut Dominos […]

REVIEW: HTC RE camera

By on

Smartphones are currently dominating the camera scene. Gone are the days of carrying around your point and shoot camera, all you need now is your smartphone and you can snap away. However, HTC are trying to solve a problem we didn’t think existed – smartphones aren’t that good at capturing the moment easily. So they’ve developed a solution… and it’s called the RE. It’s a small camera, modelled after a periscope […]
