Gizmag reviews the new Samsung Galaxy Note 3, with its even bigger screen and improved sty...

Samsung's Galaxy Note 2 was one of our favorite mobile devices from the last year, but it still had some room for improvement. What happens when Samsung takes that already great mobile device, and improves on it in all the right areas? Well, you get an absolute beast of a mobile device, the Galaxy Note 3. Join Gizmag, as we review Samsung's latest flagship phablet.  Read More

The Defender, in place on the handlebars and ready to go

Last year, a couple of MIT grads took to Kickstarter to raise production funds for their just-about-everything-proof bicycle light, the Defender. Made mainly from a solid block of aluminum, the light was reportedly tough as nails, waterproof, and very theft-resistant. It was also designed to look like the cylinder of a revolver. Well, the Kickstarter project was a success, and the light is now available for purchase. I got my hands on one, to see if it actually lives up to its makers' claims.  Read More

The Mega sports a faux chrome plastic back

Whatever sort of smartphone you might want, Samsung has got you covered. Unlike its chief competitor, Apple, which recently broke with tradition by unveiling (gasp!) two new models of iPhone at once, the Korean monolith makes devices of all shapes and sizes. Samsung's huge 6.3-inch Galaxy Mega sprang forth from that spirit of concocting a flavor for every taste last month, and I've spent the past few weeks putting it through its paces to try to find out if there's room in my life for such a sizable smartphone. Here are a few of the conclusions I've reached over the course of my month with the Mega.  Read More

Gizmag reviews Grand Theft Auto V, the long-anticipated next chapter from Rockstar Games

If you have a successful gaming franchise, there are two approaches you can take. You can follow the Call of Duty blueprint, and, like clockwork, churn out a new cash cow every holiday season. Or you can take Rockstar Games' approach, take your old sweet time, and deliver the best damn game you can possibly deliver, no matter how long it takes. It's been a long time coming, but Rockstar's latest, Grand Theft Auto V, shows just what a game can be when its developers give it the time and attention it deserves. Read on, as Gizmag reviews GTA V.  Read More

Gizmag reviews Apple's iPhone 5s, the latest iterative 'S-series' update out of Cupertino

Apple has settled into a pattern. While most smartphone makers try to blow our minds once a year with eye-catching new designs, shapes, and sizes, Apple has stuck to its guns: a redesigned iPhone one year, an almost identical-looking iPhone with upgraded internals the next. Is the latest iterative update, the iPhone 5s, worth jumping on? Or is this the year to hold off, or maybe test the Android waters? Let Gizmag try to answer, as we put the new iPhone 5s through the paces.  Read More

Gizmag looks in detail at the trials and tribulations of using a 3D printer at home

For the last week, I've been living with a 3D printer – one of the cheapest on the market: the Flashforge Creator Dual. After 30 or so prints, I've discovered some of the foibles of home 3D printing, and some of the work-arounds. Is this a glimpse into the future of home fabrication, or a niche hobby piece? Grab some hairspray (seriously) and dive in as Gizmag reviews the FlashForge Creator 3D and, more importantly, takes a detailed look at the practicalities of 3D printing at home.  Read More

The Minx Air 200 wireless speaker system from Cambridge Audio

Last month I got the opportunity to spend some quality time with the Minx Go Bluetooth speaker from Cambridge Audio and came away mighty impressed. Since then I've been playing my tunes through its bigger brother, the top of the range Minx Air 200. This wireless speaker is roughly four times the physical size of the Go, is compatible with Apple's AirPlay technology as well as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, and has a monstrous 200 W amplifier at its heart.  Read More

Gizmag tries out Horizon Fuel Cell Technologies' i-H2GO hydrogen-powered car

At the end of last month, Horizon Fuel Cell Technologies began shipments of its latest hydrogen fuel cell-powered remote-control toy car, the i-H2GO. Like its predecessor, the H2GO, it runs on hydrogen obtained from user-supplied water. The main thing that's new about the i-H2GO, however, is the fact that it is now controlled using a free app on the user's existing smartphone. I got my hands on an early production model, mainly just so that I could truthfully say "I've driven a fuel cell car."  Read More

The T3, trackside at the Castrol Raceway

It was just last month that we heard about a nifty little gadget known as the T3 Tactical Auto Rescue Tool. The device was created by New York City paramedic Avi Goldstein, for freeing accident victims from their wrecked cars – it's intended for use by both first responders and everyday drivers. Goldstein recently sent me a T3 to try out firsthand, so try it out I did ... at a race track.  Read More

Gizmag reviews the Pebble watch, which helped to kickstart the impending Smartwatch Mania

Smartwatch Mania is coming. Whether or not Apple releases its rumored iWatch this year, Samsung's Galaxy Gear and Sony's Smartwatch 2 are in the pipeline, and many more are on their way. Some big companies have bet some big bucks that the wrist will be the next big battleground in computing. So what better time to take a closer look at Pebble, the crowdfunded watch that helped create all the fuss? Read on, as Gizmag reviews the retail version of the Pebble smartwatch.  Read More
