It might be hard to believe, but National Geographic has been around for 125 years. To celebrate this important milestone, they sent one of their award winning photographer's Stephen Alvarez on an incredible ten day 2112 mile journey across the American west.

I have never been considered a workaholic, at least not when it comes to my day job. But when it comes to The Gadgeteer, I can't unplug and to be honest, I don't want to. I enjoy working on reviews and answering emails, even while I'm on vacation. This year we went to Sanibel Island Florida [...]

powerjacket-schettino-review-12

We've reviewed a few of Built's protective neoprene cases on The Gadgeteer.  I've tried several of their products, and their Neoprene Tote Bag for 13” Apple MacBook Pro is still my favorite laptop bag.  This is the first time I've seen their phone wallets, and they look very interesting.  They have the Smartphone Envelope for bigger [...]

nokia-lumia-822-13

It's been so long since I reviewed a Windows phone, that they weren't even called Windows Phones back then. They were called Windows Mobile phones. So it's an understatement to say that I've been long overdue to try one. Verizon Wireless was kind enough to send me a loan of a Nokia Lumia 822 Windows [...]

Ubuntu on your smartphone?

What do you use on your smartphone: iOS, Android, Windows? Well if Ubuntu has its way, it'll become another major player in the smartphone market as well. It's a pretty long video, but well worth a watch (the best phone interface info is between 6:20 and 13:45). What do you reckon? I think I want [...]
