With its HD-2D art style, engaging battle system, and sumptuous musical...

Headphones for travel-loving teens | The Sennheiser PXC 550 Review

Over the years I’ve gone through a lot of headphones, earbuds and various brands in the process. The one brand that has always stuck out as a clear winner in terms of consistency and quality is always Sennheiser. Recently after nearly 3 years of daily use (that’s not an exaggeration, they’d be on my head pretty much from the moment I woke up right until I went to bed) my old Sennheiser Urbanite XL’s finally died. The audio itself...

The Bamboo Slate – your paper drawing, on your computer!

I don’t know about you, but no matter how much I love my digital life, I am also never without ‘real’ pen and paper by my side.
