It’s no secret that the beauty business is a multi-billion dollar industry. Who among us has not succumbed to the lure of a nicely packaged cosmetic, hoping it would change how others see us, or perhaps, how we see ourselves. If I could return every disappointing item I ever purchased, I could probably get myself a new car. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could try on some of this makeup before we took out our wallets?
Gaming on the mobile platform has moved on from dedicated handheld consoles such as the Nintendo DS and Sony PSP (although the next stage of evolution, the Nintendo 3DS and PS Vita have been released for quite some time already) over to the smartphone and tablet platforms for obvious reasons – smartphone games are smaller and more manageable, and they do not need to take up too much of your time as most of them happen to be casual titles. The freemium model, however, does get my goat, how about you? Having said that, some games on modern day touchscreen mobile devices do take up more visual real estate than what some of us are comfortable with, which is where the SteelSeries Stratus XL wireless gaming controller for iOS devices come in handy.
The world of mobile gaming has definitely improved by leaps and bounds over the years, where we have seen superior hardware deliver a far more engaging mobile gaming experience than ever before, making smartphones and tablets as the default gaming platforms of choice compared to dedicated portable gaming machines such as the Nintendo 3DS and Sony PS Vita. Having said that, touchscreen controls aren’t exactly the best method of enjoying a mobile game, simply because your thumbs would have covered up some space on the screen that might have been put to better use. Enter the $99.99 Razer Junglecat gamepad that might just kick off a revolution for iOS-powered devices.
When it comes to something like a keyboard, it is a particular computer peripheral that can get very personal – certain makes certainly cater for different kinds of people, while others would swear by a selected brand. Others, however, do not really have a strict preference, but I would say that if you have been comfortable with a particular brand or type of keyboard, it can be pretty difficult making a change to a new one. Griffin Technology has something that iOS device owners might want to check out – a new Wired Keyboard.
Just about everyone you know owns a smartphone. It has become a part of our culture to want a sleeker, slimmer phone that does more than any other version on the market. There are of course a variety of cases to keep our glass-faced touchscreens safe, but the “cool” way to do things is to keep it case-free (live dangerously, right?)
We have a general thirst for knowledge of the world that can’t be quenched. We were born with no understanding of our surroundings, and have to be taught what things are, how they work, and how to interact with what’s in front of us. After a certain point, it’s up to us to gain knowledge about the world rather than being educated by teachers or parents.
We all had and/or have a special toy that we grew up with. Sometimes it’s a bear, blanket, or maybe it’s a strange stuffed animal like a puffer fish. Whatever it may be, it was more often than not a sort of security item, with which we felt safe from monsters in our own imagination at night, or dealing with new environments. While kids today still have teddy bears, they often pay more attention to technology as a comfort item.
So, you have just gone out to get yourself a spanking new iPad, and wished that it would not end up getting scratched or “hurt” by an accidental nick or drop? That should not be a problem, considering the numerous third party iPad cases that are in the market today, but just how many of those will be able to get their respective jobs done without actually losing its functionality? Logitech of Switzerland has long had a worthwhile history when it comes to iPad accessories, and their latest new Logitech Ultrathin that targets the iPad Air, iPad mini and iPad mini with Retina display would fit the bill perfectly. The Logitech Ultrathin improves upon its flexibility and design of its award winning predecessor, sporting a thinner and lighter keyboard cover, in addition to sporting a new multi-angle slot that gives one the freedom to adjust the viewing angle accordingly.
Changing up your diet for the better can be very stressful and time consuming. If you don’t know what you’re doing, it can take weeks to get in the swing of recording your food intake as well as the associated calories, salt, sugars, and more that are in it. Having a food scale handy can help, but that will only give you the weight, and there is a lot more information that you need to keep track of to really improve yourself.
