When we think of events like IFA and the technology that comes along for the ride, most people tend to think of the fancy gadgets like phones, laptops, and TVs we'll never be able to afford.

The New Game by the Rock Band Creators Made Me Feel Like a DJ God

Yesterday my coworker laid the DropMix board out on a table and started dropping cards. Immediately catchy music played from her phone’s speaker and three passing coworkers stopped dead in their tracks. As she removed a card and added another the music changed to accommodate the new beat and one person said, “Is that, like, a mixing game?” Then another spied the colourful box the DropMix resides in when you want to shove it in the closet or under a bed. “Harmonix? The Rock Band guys?” The final never took their eyes off the board as she replaced another card and the music changed again. “I want to buy this.” Read More >>

The New, Smaller Samsung Frame TV Is The One That I Want

Samsung's The Frame is a TV that's just as much a piece of art as it is a television. Switch it on and it's a 4K Ultra HD; switch it off and it'll display any of hundreds of pieces of art. And Samsung's just announced a smaller 43-inch version, that interests me a lot more than the existing 55-inch and 65-inch versions. Read More >>
