Playstation Vita Review & Launch Event

This past Friday I got the opportunity to attend the Playstation Vita launch party in Toronto. I have had practically every single gaming system that Sony has produced, be it the original Playstation, PSP, PS2 and now the PS3, so I was very excited to see how the developers at Sony would top it off with their new entry into the hand held gaming segment. Sony has had a lot of success with gaming consoles and hand helds, but with mobile gaming seemingly taking over, Sony has a tall task ahead of it. The event gave us the opportunity to play with the Vita hands on, and these are my first impressions of it. Read moreRead more

SPIbelt Review: The Perfect Pouch for Athletes and Travellers

The first question that came to my mind when I came across the SPIbelt was what purpose could it serve? On the surface it appears to be a tiny, thin, storage pouch that can’t carry much. The SPIbelt was created by Kim Overton as a solution to her troubles transporting her keys during her runs. Now why would someone spend money to only transport their keys? Surely a pocket or fanny pack would do. I was mistaken in my initial impression of the SPIbelt. Ever since I received it, I have been using it during my weekend runs whenever I want to bring my keys, cell phone, and some money. Read moreRead more

Veho Pebble Portable Battery Pack Charger Review

The nature of my job is such that I am always on the move.  Whether I am flying, on the train, in the car or on the bus, I am always travelling.  Nothing makes the time fly by during travel better than using a personal media device.  Whether its a Play Station Portable, an iPad, iPod, iPhone, or even a miniature DVD player, these various devices always keep me busy and make the travel time fly by.  However, when I am on a long journey, without access to a power outlet my issue is that many of these devices only last for a couple of hours.  That just isn’t long enough.  The folks at Veho have come up with a solution to my problem.  The Veho XT Pebble Portable Battery Pack Charger can store enough power to fully recharge most electronic devices up to four times.

OtterBox Commuter for iPhone 4 Review

When it comes to the market for cell phone cases, you have two options. You can go for something fashionable, which will make your phone look fantastic and provide minimal protection, or you can go for something that provides extreme protection, but is often bulky and ugly. Otterbox is one of the few companies that manages to bridge that gap. They are best known for their solid protection oriented case, the Defender. The Defender provides maximum iPhone 4 protection, but at times can be bulky. OtterBox knows that its not for everyone, and thus has successfully bridged the gap with their Commuter Series. The Commuter provides the same high standard of protection as the defender, but in a more stylish and slimmed down package. Read moreRead more

Speck Candyshell Flip for iPhone 4 Review

U Be the Critic recently attended the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.  The show had some big attractions, including giant 3D televisions, flying robots you can control from your cell phone, and tons of new tablets due to be launched this year.  The one thing that really surprised me was the amount of companies creating cases and accessories for the iPhone and iPad.  There was so much selection, but few quality offerings.  One of the companies that stood out from the pack was speck.  If you have been to an Apple store, you’ve seen their products.  The Apple store generally only carries high quality 3rd party accessories for their products, and speck definitely meets Apple’s standards.  Speck offers cases for the iphone and ipad, laptop bags, and many other accessories for various electronics.  Today we are reviewing their Candyshell Flip case for the iPhone 4.

Sony Ericsson XPERIA PLAY Preview

Apple and Blackberry have been dominating the smart phone market lately. I’ve always been a fan of Sony, but none of their phones have impressed me as of late. Sony’s partnership with Ericsson has yielded mixed results. I am a fan of the XPERIA X10, but many within the smart phone industry are not. Sony has finally stepped up their game with a new, formidable entry into the market. Sony Ericsson, a joint venture between Sweden’s Telefon AB L.M. Ericsson and Japan’s Sony Corp, finally offered us a glimpse at the highly anticipated new smart phone they jointly designed for playing high quality video games. Read moreRead more
