PowerBot Universal PowerBank by KickBot Review (VIDEO)



Hey everyone! I've been looking for a good portable charging solution for a little while now, and I found this cool little gadget a couple weeks ago on Amazon. I like it so far, and while it isn't the best there is, it's good enough for me at the moment. I recommend for anyone who wants to have a backup battery for traveling, but doesn't want it cost a ton of money or fill up a lot of space in their bag.

Tech I Use Everyday, February 2014 (video)




Samsung Galaxy SII: http://www.samsung.com/global/microsi...

HP Slate 7: http://www8.hp.com/us/en/ads/slate-7/...

Note Everything App (Android):https://play.google.com/store/apps/de...


1. Samsung Galaxy SII. Now this is not a new phone by any means. It was originally released in 2011, and at the time I believe it was the iPhone 4S's main competitor. It has an 8MP camera, runs the Android version Ice Cream Sandwich, and has a decently sized 4.5 inch screen. It does everything I need it to at the moment, and I actually shoot most of my videos with it right now.

2. HP Slate 7. I received this for Christmas last year, and pretty much can't put it down. It's red, which I love, it's reasonably quick, and although the cameras are not very good, I really have no other complaints about this device at the moment. The case selection is a bit sparse, but other than that, it's a great tablet and I am quite satisfied.

3. Note Everything. My tablet didn't come with a memo or note taking app of any kind, and I didn't want to use anything like Evernote because I didn't want everything being uploaded to the cloud and available on all my devices. It is a simple, bare-bones app for offline note taking, and it even lets you create notes from drawings and voiceovers.

What's your favorite tech that you use right now?

Flappy Bird: The Most Annoying Game Ever?

Have you heard about the Flappy Bird? Well, it's take the mobile gaming world (and a lot of phones) by storm. People are becoming obsessed with this game, not because it's easy and fun, but for the opposite reason: it's very difficult and frustrating. It's hard to understand, until you play. I tried this game for the first time, and filmed my reactions to failing at what may be one of the hardest mobile games ever made.



Have you tried Flappy Bird? What's your highest score?

Download it for iOS: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/flappy-bird/id642099621?mt=8  or Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.dotgears.flappybird
