Planet Gemini PDA Review: A tiny computer with big ideas

Normally when I review a product, the question I’m trying to answer is whether it’s worth the asking price. But the Planet Gemini PDA was crowdfunded, willed into existence by almost 6,000 people pooling over $ 2 million on Indiegogo so that Planet Computers could build a modern version of the classic Psion PDA.

Not ringing a bell? That’s okay; the Psion only achieved wide popularity in Europe, and that was a long time ago. (In fact  [Read More…]

Planet Computers’ Gemini brings the classic PDA into the Android era

Some of you might remember the Psion Series 5, a personal digital assistant (PDA) device that launched back in 1997.

Nanoleaf Aurora review: The coolest lights on the whole damn planet

It turns out the smart lights I’ve wanted all along aren’t lightbulb shaped.

Shoot the bad guys and save the planet with Battle Planet!

Defuse the bombs, defeat your enemies, and try to survive.

Dropped onto a planet where my ancestors once dwelled, I’m armed only with a single gun, a jetpack, and the knowledge that my ride should be back in roughly a year. The place is mostly deserted, so it seems like it might be an actual cake walk. Well, until you factor in Tyranid spaceships launching bombs at ancient burial sites, subterranean worms, and bounty hunters all after  [Read More…]

Snapchat to bring Planet Earth to portrait mode every week

Good news for nature-loving Millennials!

Snap is bringing Planet Earth II, which aired at the tail end of 2016 on BBC, to Snapchat this month.

Each episode has been repurposed into 4 to 6-minute chunks and optimized for Snapchat’s portrait mode-only navigation, and features the same categories from the original show, including Islands, Mountains, Jungles, Deserts, Grasslands, and Cities.

The shorter pieces will also have 3D audio, something that few mobile-optimized pieces of content possess these days.  [Read More…]
