It’s no secret that I love hybrid devices. Laptops are handy and tablets are fun but having one device that can function as both is even better. Something about a gadget that can transform between different modes simply feels more futuristic to me. Lately I’ve been putting the Asus Transformer book T100TAM through its paces which is just such a device. It’s a sort of two-in-one laptop-tablet hybrid device that lets you use it as a laptop when you need to and as a standalone tablet the rest of the time.

Review: Razer Nabu X Fitness Band

This is my second kick at the can with Razer fitness trackers. Back in December I was sent a model that didn’t seem… quite right. Turns out I’d been sent a development prototype for the Razer Nabu, and while I loved it, it didn’t seem to work the way the app suggested it should. It has a screen that would give you the first few words of emails or instant messages and gave you some insight to your alerts. Interesting, but only if it works right? From what I hear the production models are quite a bit better than what I was sent.

 

We had to send that model back, and in January this tracker showed up: The Razer Nabu X. The plan black band is adorned inside with Razer’s trademark neon green… would this be the tracker that would get me off my FitBit kick (I wish I could quit you, FitBit)? Read on to find out.

You know what’s awesome? The Sony HDR-AZ1VR Mini POV Action Cam with Live View Remote. You know what sucks? Defective memory cards.
