Today a person has a plethora of choices when considering peripherals. Choice could be considered a founding principle on the evolution of all electronics; however mice have always pushed the envelope to ensure their place amongst modern computer hardware. These essential components come in various sizes, colours, and functionality. Configuration can go from easy to complex, and allow for some truly amazing customization. Not only are they wireless versions, but ambidextrous, and programmable, which goes a long way to please different sections of the population. EVGA has produced the TORQ X 5 to be a gaming mouse.  At first glance, it is very evident that EVGA is serious about gaming, and the larger gaming community, when designing their hardware.

Got an iPhone 6? Apple's iPhones are one of the most popular smartphones today. While most users applaud Apple for the iPhones up-to-date features, these do come in with a premium price tag. You wouldn't want any scratches on it anytime, particularly the screen. With that in mind, screen protectors are a very common mean to prevent such problem.

I have reviewed a lot of mechanical keyboards over the last several years, and the same three factors have dominated my judgement on how well they score. Those factors are affordability, wrist fatigue, and build quality.

Tenda AV1000

In this age of technology, people are always on the go. Unfortunately, Wireless Technology hasn’t caught up to where we want it to be yet. It’s fast when nearby, but signal degradation is rapid once you start putting walls between yourself and the Access Point. This is where something like Powerline Ethernet Adapters excel though.
