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.

Computer Fits in My Palm, Pano Logic Review

Computer Fits in My Palm, Pano Logic Review

Desktop virtualization is a phrase you may be hearing more of sooner than later. The idea of computing in the cloud as opposed to today’s private desktop machines isn’t new but there haven’t been many products to put idea into practice. The Pano Logic designed by Whipsaw Inc. is the first of which I’ve seen blends the beauty of minimalist design with a seamless computing experience made near identical to the computer I’m using now to type this.

Better Bottle for Baby, Adiri Natural Nurser Review

Better Bottle for Baby, Adiri Natural Nurser Review

If you’ve ever been to a store that caters to mothers and newborns, you were probably overwhelmed at the selection. The number of bottle choices alone are staggering! One of the latest contenders is the accolade laden Adiri Natural Nurser. Designed by Whipsaw Inc. to simulate a mother’s breast and nipple using BPF FREE materials, it’s a baby bottle simplified in design but as it turns out may be better than the generic bottles flooding the market.

Water to Inspire, KOR ONE Hydration Vessel Review

Water to Inspire, KOR ONE Hydration Vessel Review

I’ve been toting around the KOR ONE Hydration Vessel for a week and the first thing someone said to me was, “that’s a water bottle? Looks pretty spacey man.” Yes it does look quite futuristic and some have even accused me of being wasteful – all that pretty packaging and design just to hold water. What gives?

Unisex Wallet – Dosh Wallet Review

Unisex Wallet – Dosh Wallet Review

Women have their purses and men have their wallets – so the stereotype goes. However in this day and age, we are seeing more and more unisex items made available that touch both the feminine and masculine side of all of us. I have to be honest here, my man’s wallets, they have always seemed so boring and plain. I was searching online a couple of months back for a nice new wallet upgrade to give my hunny for Christmas this year, and stumbled upon these guys: Dosh – Wallet as Art.

Rainbow Star Cutey Review

Rainbow Star Cutey Review

About a month ago, I had the pleasure of receiving the Rainbow Star Cutey by Lumenworks. I have a major weakness for groovy lighting, especially ones that change colors. This sweet little beast of a light is a smaller version to Lumenworks Rainbow Star light. Its base is made of metal and the transparent acrylic top is the icing on the cake for this little beauty.

I Want Everything in Containers, OXO Pop Review

I Want Everything in Containers, OXO Pop Review

Okay I need to spread the word. A few months ago the OXO company sent me a bunch of their OXO Pop containers for review. I’ve never been one to store things in containers because I only buy enough of anything for immediate use. But things like cereals, rice, and pasta are bulk items. I’ve been on a container storing binge because the OXO Pop containers actually work. Hey, they won the Red Dot 2008 Product Design Award so there’s way more than meets the eye here.

Don't Call it a Bean Bag, SumoSac Review

Don’t Call it a Bean Bag, SumoSac Review

Around this time last year we reviewed the Sumo Omni Lounge. It’s still in the office and despite being subjected to people instinctually wanting to run and “cannonball” on it, it has held up well. We recently had a chance to try out Sumolounge’s new and expanded product line, namely the SumoSac. In short, everything has been vastly improved. Tho the original Sumo Omni used “beads” and retained a beanbag-like consistency, the SumoSac is totally different. It opts for batting. Hit the jump for our review.

One Size Fits All, Herman Miller Embody Review

One Size Fits All, Herman Miller Embody Review

Over the past decade and a half Herman Miller has firmly established itself “the” company to go to with all your seating needs. The original Aeron Chair came to symbolize the dot com era. Any and everyone had to have one in office to be certified “cool.” The mesh design, fully adjustable design, and 3 sizes to choose from made it one of a kind. Flash forward 15 years and they’re set to do it again with the new Embody chair taking the one size fits all ethos by further improving a number of adjustable features.
