Smarten Up Poochie, Dog Brick Review

Smarten Up Poochie, Dog Brick Review

Pet owners know nothing is too good for their poochie or kitty. They readily spend $100 on their beloved companions without batting an eyelash. Hey if you got the money, who better to spoil than your pets? In my quest to find something not only fun but mentally stimulating for my dog Miko, I came across a line of pet toys from a Swedish company called Nina Ottosson. They were kind enough to send my dog a few items from their new lineup. Hit the jump for my Miko’s review.

Touchy Much? HP Touchsmart PC Review

Touchy Much? HP Touchsmart PC Review

Touchscreen interfaces; the delicate balance between technology and cost are slowly falling in unison and HP aims to be in the vanguard. The Touchsmart PCs have always tried to epitomize that future but the 1st gen machines weren’t exactly winners. We took the 2nd gen machines for a test drive and spoke to Randall Martin – HP’s Worldwide Director of Design for Commercial and Consumer Desktop PCs about the present and future of the Touchsmart PC line.

DJ Play That Music! JBL DUET II Review

DJ Play That Music! JBL DUET II Review

The original DUET was a hit with many enthusiasts looking for a complimentary computer speaker system without breaking the bank. JBL went at it again with the new DUET II. New look, new specs and still affordable, but how does it perform? Hit the jump for my review.

New Read, Chair Wandering by Frederick Reber

New Read, Chair Wandering by Frederick Reber

I received so many books over the past holiday season I felt like I was back in school trying to get thru them all. One book in particular by designer and founder of Reberstein Design, Frederick Reber called Chair Wandering is a beautiful exercise in creativity and imagination. If you’ve got $25 laying out, don’t spend it on a night out on junk food and cheap booze, pick up this book.

Tools Of The Trade, 3Dconnexion SpaceExplorer Review

Tools Of The Trade, 3Dconnexion SpaceExplorer Review

3Dconnexion is synonymous with tools designed for 3D graphics so I thought a review on their IF DESIGN awarding winning SpaceExplorer was in order. When I started learning 3D graphics (not going to mention how many moons ago that was) 3-button mice were mandatory unless you were proficient with numerous keyboard commands and shortcuts. Designed to make life easier and more efficient, does the SpaceExplorer deliver on its promises?

Big Rack & That's A Good Thing

Big Rack & That’s A Good Thing

Need a duffle bag that’s sleek, nondescript, and functional? The Setgo Rack may be the bag for you. The company recently (Nov. ’08) updated their inventory with 12 new products for the urban go-getter. They were kind enough to send me the Rack bag to try out. I was on vacation prior and now wish I had the bag beforehand because it turns out, is quite sharp and utilitarian. Hit the jump for my review.

Now More iPhone Friendly, ZAGG Z.Buds Review

Now More iPhone Friendly, ZAGG Z.Buds Review

Back in October 2008, ZAGG sent us a prototype of their iPhone Z.Buds earbuds promising the best buds for your money. A lot of companies make the same promise but this is one product I think is worth a look if you’re willing to buy outside Apple’s utopian product design and brand control.

Compact SLR? Olympus E-420 Review

Compact SLR? Olympus E-420 Review

It’s the world’s smallest SLR or at least the smallest with interchangeable lenses. The Sigma DP1 is the “smallest.” Compared to other entry SLRs, this thing is miniscule measuring under 5 x 3.6 inches without a lens attached. All that compactness doesn’t mean Olympus went cheap on power. It’s packed with features! The composite body is solid and feels like it should be heavier than a scant 18 oz.

Look Ma No Paper! Wacom Cintiq 12WX Review

Look Ma No Paper! Wacom Cintiq 12WX Review

Wacom graphics tablets have always been in a league of their own. If you are looking for a professional tablet it’s not a question of what brand to buy, only what model. The Intuos range has been a solid choice for many years offering the portability the Cintiq 21 couldn’t. The Cintiq 12WX however created waves on its release as it made the Cintiq 21 technology portable for the 1st time and did so at an impressive price. Here at Yanko we have been reviewing the Cintiq 12WX for over 6 months and have become quite fond of it to say the least.

Guerilla Photography, Gorillapod Review

Guerilla Photography, Gorillapod Review

I saw some generic knock off at my local electronics retailer and decided it was high time to try the real deal first before giving the knock off a chance. Joby was kind enough to answer my request and sent me their wildly popular Gorillapod SLR-ZOOM, the flexi-bendy tripod that gets your camera into more nooks and crannies than you thought possible. Hit the jump for my review.

Packs a Bassy Punch, Sonoro Cubo Elements Review

Packs a Bassy Punch, Sonoro Cubo Elements Review

Sonoro Audio Cubo Elements clock radio won a Red Dot award for best product design so we just had to review one to see what all the accolades were about. Right off the bat, this is no typical clock radio. In fact, my regular radio tucked its tail in and hid behind the lamp as soon as the Cubo Elements came prancing out of its packaging. Hit the jump for my review.
