We have just posted up our review of the Rosewill RNX-AC750RT Gigabit Wireless AC router. This router is the current flagship from Rosewill, and while it isn't the fastest router we've seen, it makes up for the wireless speed with an awesome feature set that allows you to do a lot of extras - without hacking up the firmware. The wireless is still pretty snappy at close to 250Mbps, but it falls behind other products that are much more expensive. For price and performance, it's pretty hard to beat, but you should read our review for all the details.

Jay Morrison has been taking us through the heart-wrenching journey of the death of his Nexus 5 and the excitement about snagging the new Nexus 6. He gave us his first thoughts, walked us through the swelling battery and has now reached a conclusion after a few months. That's right, the Nexus 6 just has to go. It's too large, too bulky and while there are some amazing features, if you can't hang onto it or put it in a pocket, it has to go.

We have just posted up another Android App Pick of the Week and this week we are going hi-tech with an old classic. Back in the day, you'd use a piece of wood with balls on it and a whole and try and conquer the level by defying physics. Today, Rolling Balls is our App Pick and you won't have to carry around a sheet of plywood.

We have just posted up another Android App Pick of the Week and this week we are back with a gaming app. Land Grabbers is fun and requires a fair bit of strategy to defend your property as well as cunning and craftiness to dominate the enemy and grab up their land. Check it out and enjoy!

We have just posted up another Android App Pick of the Week and this week we are all about helping n00bs figure out League of Legends. While it may be too late to master the game for VulcLAN 2015, it will help you figure out how to control the map better and how to play your favorite character at the top of their ability. Learn how to be a Legend - or at least play in their League.

We have just posted up our review of a couple of microphones from Samson. We take a look and yell at the Go Mic Direct as well as the Meteorite. Both are USB microphones, both can be packed around and both sound much better than your built-in microphone. They do serve two distinct purposes though, so you'll have to read our review to find out "what it is they're good for".
