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 […]

GIFT GUIDE REVIEW: innerexile Hydra case for iPhone 6

By on

Well, this is my first iPhone case review and the first time I’ve heard of innerexile. I’ve had many phones cases, usually from well known brands such as Apple, Microsoft, Belkin and others but this is the first time I’ve had a case from innerexile. I was rather interested in the particular case as well since it was “self-healing” meaning that small scuffs and marks would disappear. The case design […]

REVIEW: Halo: The Master Chief Collection

By on

343 Industries is celebrating the 10th anniversary of Halo 2 in a big way – giving fans not only a remastered version of Halo 2 for the Xbox One, but every single one of Master Chief’s adventures in one special collection. Originally released for the original Xbox in 2004, Halo 2 was a massive success for Microsoft and Bungie, with acclaim from both fans and critics. The game quickly became the top-selling game for the original Xbox, selling at least 6.3 million copies in the United States alone.

SingStar PS4 Review: Screw The Neighbours

By on

I’m not gonna lie. I’m a bit of a karaoke tragic. Except I’m more of a shy one. Whether it’s in the car, home alone, or in my dreams, singing is my jam. Now, that’s not to say that I’m any good at it, but it’s somehow relaxing, in a weird way. And while I’m fine with neighbours hearing me in the distance, or pedestrians seeing me jamming out in […]

Nokia Lumia 930 – A Photographer’s Review

By on

Sometimes, lightning strikes twice. We’ve already had the chance to review the Nokia Lumia 930 as a day-to-day phone, and Stewart found the Lumia to be the best Windows Phone to date. However, I thought it would be worthwhile to take a deeper look at the phone from a photographer’s perspective – to see how Nokia’s vaunted reputation for mobile photography fares here.

Nokia Lumia 930 Review: The best Windows Phone yet

By on

Dubbed to be the best Windows Phone of 2014 – the Nokia Lumia 930 is the newest edition from Nokia. Being the flagship phone of 2014, the Lumia 930 certainly packs a punch. There’s a lot riding on this phone, it’s one of the first to run Windows Phone 8.1 out of the box and the first phone released under the “Microsoft Devices” brand. The Lumia 930 has a 5” […]

Review: Braven 710 Bluetooth Speaker

By on

When this speaker hit my desk, I was intrigued to see how powerful it was. The Braven 710 is a small, powerful Bluetooth speaker for your smartphone…. or really any device that has Bluetooth. It has a beautiful “aircraft grade” aluminium design which feels sturdy and has a premium feel, it’s ruggedised and water resistant to save you from unfortunate situations and just looks pretty damn good. The Braven 710 retails for […]
