Logitech to rebrand to simply “Logi”

Logitech has been around for many years (since 1981 in fact) and is a pretty recognisable brand. One which makes some of the best mice and keyboards around. Personally speaking when I do need (or want) to buy another mouse for my laptop, Logitech is the only brand that I look at. The company is updating it’s brand though and will begin releasing products with their new brand name of just “Logi”. The reason behind the change is because “Tech is everywhere” according ...

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Case Mate slim folio review

Last week I received Case-Mate’s “Slim Folio” case for Samsung’s latest phablet, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. Cases to my liking have been hard to come by for the Note 3 so far.

I also quite enjoyed being able to use the case as ... Continue Reading →

I’ve now had the chance to review the Belkin Snap Folio case for the Note 2, a case that I was also looking at when I received the Momax case. Both cases are quite similar in that the phone sits in the back part of the case and the case covers the screen. Similarly the ... Continue Reading →
