DJI Phantom 2 Vision

dji-phantom-2-vision-main

Been absent for a while due to work and family but very occasionally something comes up which just HAS to be shared with the world.

Over the past decade Ive had a lot of toys, gadgets, semi professional and professional RC but none have been so much fun as……………..The DJI Phantom 2 Vision. 

The DJI Phantom 2 Vision is a $1,200 consumer drone. Costly yes……worth it? Read more »

Brief hands on Sony Vaio Duo 13

Ultra books…………….high end notebooks with reduced bulk without compromising on performance. The Sony Vaio Duo 13 is exactly just this.

With a Core i7 processor (haswell), 8GB Ram, 256 GB SSD HD, Windows 8 and a 1920 x 1080 display weighing in at a little under 3lbs makes this an extremely portable yet a powerful device. Sony got it right this time(Last years 11 inch duo was a disaster in my opinion).

Caphgture

The ability to transform into a slate(measuring at 0.77 inches thick is what I like best about this Ultra Book. I’m not much of a windows fan but after using this for a few days I’ve actually given up my MBP retina and Ipad since this is basically a 2 in 1 device. Read more

Popcorn Hour A400 hands on.

The future belongs to media players. We have seen some great media players such as the Apple Tv, Roku, WD and so on but none have actually wanted to make me shift from my Bluray players to them till I used the Popcorn Hour A400.

CaaptureThe A400 is the fourth generation media player from Syabas(Now Cloud Media) and is their latest and greatest(my personal opinion). Measuring at  7.2 inches wide, 6.2 inches deep and 2.2 inches high and weighs 2.86 pounds, don’t let the size fool you. This is one powerful device.

I transferred the heaviest movie I had( Life of Pi which was in excess of 45GB) and hit the play button thinking it would take a good few minutes so play but surprisingly in less than 5 seconds it did the trick. The same file when played thru Apple TV………well I just got tired of waiting.  Read more

I have used a few robots in the past such as Robosapien series including the V2, Rovio, iSobot etc which have really never had any practical utility as such so I was hesitant in buying the Roomba 780 fearing that it might be the same.  Read more

Brief Review Lumia 925

Lumia 925Lumia 925 is the latest Windows based handset from Nokia. With specs almost identical to the Lumia 920, this feels like a slight upgrade from the previous Lumia. The biggest issue I personally had with the 920 was its size/weight and no option of expandable memory. Read more

HTC ONE(M7) Hands On

MTC One M7Enough cant be sent about this handsets. I have always liked the build quality of HTC and the ONE is definitely following the tradition of a great looking design. It is the most beautiful phone out there.

Specs wise the One delivers.  With a full HD screen, an “Ultra Pixel” camera, fantastic speakers and a completely new way to see your social media. The all-aluminum chassis, using a zero-gap unibody design makes this phone one of the best looking devices ever seen.

The HTC One is almost all Read more »
