Microsoft Wedge Mobile Keyboard review: a keyboard designed for Windows 8 tablets

ms keyboard Along with the Microsoft Wedge Touch Mouse, the Microsoft Wedge Mobile Keyboard has been released in preparation for Windows 8. It doesn't have a design as divisive as the Wedge Touch Mouse, but it complements it with the same black and silver colour scheme. It's a small keyboard - not any longer than most tablets, and so typing on it for long periods can be quite uncomfortable. However the buttons feel good, and it's a huge improvement on using an on-screen keyboard on ...

New trailer for Bioshock Infinite sheds light on latest, greatest shooter

New-Trailer This looking to be one of the best shooters of 2012, or early 2013. Bioshock Infinite is the third Bioshock title and brings much of what we know into the foreground. Skyhooks for transport, burning bloody hands as weaponry and Elizabeth's intense psychic powers. Plus we get glimpses of Infinite's "heavy hitters", the mini-bossess of the title. Isolation, desperation, fear and hatred. It's going to be one to beat.


Toshiba Satellite P850 review [Video]

video review Did everyone catch the memo? Laptops and tablets are about to enter a renaissance thanks to Microsoft. So where does this leave the other device makers? If it's Toshiba we get the Satellite P850, a laptop designed with entertainment in mind. What do we get for roughly US$800, how about 8GB RAM, some nippy performance and very lush sound? We can deal with that, and so can Stuart Thomas our resident lover of laptops. It's video time.

Microsoft Wedge Touch Mouse review: a unique design for a mouse, but is that a good thing?

Screen Shot 2012-10-22 at 10.55.34 AM With the launch of Windows 8, Microsoft has released some new peripherals that have been designed to complement the new operating system, and its new way of doing things. First up is the Microsoft Wedge Touch Mouse, a rather odd looking Bluetooth-only mouse. In the past, Microsoft has launched a number of ergonomic peripherals that are comfortable to use for long periods of time. As you can guess from one look at this mouse, this isn't one of them. But that's not the ...

Epson TW5500 review: quality is worth the cost

Epson Projector We live in an age where small things are able to do a lot quickly. The Epson EH-TW5500 Home Projector (catchy name ain’t it?) is not one of those things. It’s absolutely bloody hulking. Despite the Gearburn editor’s assertion that I just needed to spend some time in the gym, calling this thing portable would be like calling Stephen Hawking an Olympic athlete. Plug it in, baby If you’re going to have this thing in your house then, it’ll more than likely ...


Windows 8: throw out everything you know

Zune pass Looking at the PC market over the past three years, it's easy to see that things have become rather long in the tooth. PCs have become as boring as cereal in the morning, making you wish that you never woke up. But fast forward to the end of 2012 and things seem to be heating up. In the past, when people talked about a PC you could easily think of a really heavy box and a big LCD display with ...
