Testing the HP Envy X2

by Dimitrios Thomadakis At the Show Stoppers event, during IFA 2012, we had the opportunity to take a look at and examine up close the new Envy X2 by HP, a hybrid tablet-notebook, one of those in fashion lately.

Old-school sound with the TDK Boombox

by Dimitrios Thomadakis As retro always was and will be in fashion, so it is in the case of the TDK Wireless Boombox, which brings to mind the cassette players (aka boomboxes), which youth carried around on their shoulders in the african-american and latin-based neighborhoods, across the Atlantic.

iRobot: the most-high-tech vacuum cleaner in IFA 2012

by Dimitrios Thomadakis It’s the gadget that will blow your mother’s mind. It’s the “pet” that every family would like to have. It’s the smartest household tool. It’s iRobot, the vacuum cleaner that has been rumbling during the last few months, and is in fact worth it.

There were actually cases for the iPad mini in IFA 2012

by Dimitrios Thomadakis The manufacturing company is called “Wanxinda (Guangzhou) Technology Product”, and if this name seems like a railway, you can just call it “WXD”. It may not ring any bells, but they had a booth in IFA 2012, and actually showed cases for the iPad mini, there! In fact, when we attempted to take some shots, […] 4 September 2012 at 12:23 am

A bluetooth keyboard-case for your iPad in IFA 2012

by Dimitrios Thomadakis One of the accessories we liked while touring around IFA in Berlin, was Zagg’s keyboard-case for the iPad. It certainly would not be nominated for an academy award in innovation, neither is it the product that surprised us more than anything, but it’s still a persuasive response to the trend that wants hybrid devices being […] 3 September 2012 at 10:57 pm
