By Christian Zibreg on Jan 30, 2017

Apple today released a developer-only beta of watchOS 3.2 and the biggest news aside from support for Siri in Apple Watch apps is Theater Mode that we thought would make its debut in iOS 10.3 (it didn’t). Activated via a brand new toggle in Control Center, Theater Mode puts your wearable device into silent mode while keeping the screen dark until you tap it or press the Digital Crown or the Side button.

Ugreen’s Magnetic Charger for Apple Watch is slim enough to keep in your pocket

By Anthony Bouchard on Dec 31, 2016

Most people experience all-day battery life with the Apple Watch, whether it’s the single core first generation model, or the dual core Series 1 or 2 versions that were launched just this year. While this is true for most people who use their Apple Watch regularly, new apps like Pokémon GO for the Apple Watch threaten to deplete your Apple Watch’s tiny battery much faster.

With that being the case, investing in some kind of portable power pack made specifically for the Apple Watch, like the Ugreen Magnetic Charger, is a good idea. Read More

Logitech’s G933 wireless surround sound headset takes desktop gaming to the next level

By Timothy Reavis on Oct 8, 2016

I’ve always been a PC gamer at heart. While consoles appealed to me in my younger years, I’ve never owned one and instead waged war in Age of Empires II on my Windows Vista (I know, I know) laptop. Although I casually played iOS games for a while, I’ve never found one that I can consider a “hardcore” game that I would continuously return to for the storyline or multiplayer – the two main reasons I’d consider playing any game.

The essentials of PC gaming begin with a solid monitor and graphics card to push those frames and make your games look incredible. The rest of the experience mainly comes from peripherals – your mouse, keyboard, and headphones – which all help you excel at the game you’re playing while enhancing the experience with programmable macros and directional audio. Logitech’s G933 Artemus Spectrum wireless gaming headset is perhaps the peripheral that has upped my game the most, as I truly found myself playing considerably better when using these headphones.
