When the first generation Apple Watch was released, I was the first in line to get it. I…
When Apple announced the AirPods along the iPhone 7 back in September, I thought that they are bound to fail. I was always struggling with my wired earphones to keep them on my ears as they were constantly fall off, so I expected the same experience from the AirPods. To my surprise, the AirPods are the best wireless earbuds I have ever used. I have been using them for the past 2 months now and I am in love with…

The PlayStation has been my primary gaming platform for many years now; it has everything a gamer wants: graphics, performance, versatility and connectivity. But, one thing was still missing, and that's mobility. Moving your PlaySation around is not an easy and friendly task. Remember the old Sega Genesis Ads? "Genesis Does What Nintendon't."

I have purchased over the years more than ten long lenses for my mobile phones, and they never worked out for me.
