    You may have heard of a little game called Threes! - it's a charming iOS game only recently released - and is also slightly addictive. Basically, you are presented with a 4x4 grid that is populated with 'tiles' that increase in multiples of 3's (hence the name) as you swipe pairs together. The tiles are either blue '1's', or red '2's' - which must be joined to make a white '3'. From here, the tiles will continue to commingle with a 'twin' and produce even more white tiles - which also increase in multiples (e.g. '3' and

    PROS: Built-in battery; comfortable to hold
    CONS: Limited games
    PRICE: $129.95
    RATING: 4/5

    Logitech’s G550 PowerShell caters to gamers who are still enamoured with the traditional console-style controllers, converting a 4in iPhone 5/5s or iPod touch into a more traditional gaming device.

    The PowerShell features a Lightning plug and is designed to snugly hold your iGadget. Almost doubling the width of your phone, the case incorporates PlayStation-style ...

    Mac OS X 10.7 and above
    $79.95 (game + cable) - $239.95 (Epiphone Les Paul Jr guitar + game + cable)


    PROS: Actually teaches you how to play guitar; Great variety of songs
    CONS: It’s designed for consoles
    RATING: 9/10


    From plastic guitars to an entire pseudo band, the music genre is one of the fastest evolving in videogame history. It was but a mere five years ago that Guitar Hero ruled the land, before the superior Rock Band outclassed ...

    PROS: Simple but thrilling combat with a great touch interface
    CONS: Pointless story inundates the player with too much text
    3.5/5

    When Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag was revealed, an online chorus questioned why Ubisoft didn’t call it “Pirates” instead. At first glance it has nothing to do with the arching Assassin’s Creed narrative, and more to do with the trials and tribulations of swashbuckling, sea shanties and swindling rum. ...

    $1599 / Epson
    PROS: Bright; portable
    CONS: No battery; no audio line-out
    RATING: 4.5/5


    Small enough to slide into your bag but bright enough to pack a punch, Epson’s EB-1776W is designed for road warriors looking to make a good impression.

    Weighing in at 1.7kg, with a slim-line design, the 1776W has the footprint of an A4 sheet of paper and is only 44mm thick. It slips easily into a travel satchel even once you allow for ...

    $259
    PROS: Excellent audio for the size; well-built; great for travellers
    CONS: None – even the price is good
    RATING: 5/5

    After a number of delays, the foxL DASH7 is available in Australia. This is great news, as we've been big fans of previous Bluetooth speakers from Soundmatters.

    The DASH7 is similar to the v2 Series speakers in many aspects, but differs from them in one big way – it’s flat ...

    CONS: Light on bass

    $299

    RATING: 4/5


    A new entry-level speaker makes the Sonos Digital Music System more flexible and affordable than ever.

    Sonos is the gold standard when it comes to multi-room audio and it’s a lot more flexible than simply hooking up speakers to a few Airport Expresses spread around your home. Sonos speakers create their own wireless mesh network, so you only ...

    PROS: Bluetooth keyboard; secure; nice feel; magnetised stand

    CONS: Some unresponsive buttons with iOS 7

    $99.95

    RATING: 4/5



    The Keyboard Folio mini for the iPad mini is a fantastic combination of style, practicality and longevity.

    Logitech’s keyboard case is available in three colours: a dark blue, a light blue and a vibrant yellow – which we reviewed.

    The outside of the case has a textured covering that feels sturdy and prevents ...

    While pocket-sized projectors are great for people on the go – and all four of the models on these pages can be used with iOS devices – there are compromises to be made.


    Optoma PK320 Pico Projector



    Amber Technology
    $539
    PROS: Small; lots of connectors
    CONS: Dull whites
    3/5

    Optoma’s PK320 looks promising but won’t cut it for that important business presentation.

    Its footprint is only slightly larger than an iPhone 5, but the Optoma is blessed with mini-HDMI, micro-USB, micro-SD, composite video and VGA connectors – so it will play nicely with pretty much any device. If you want to travel light, it also features 1GB of onboard storage.

    Tipping the scales at 235g, the Optoma comes with a carry pouch and a tiny remote control. There’s a power adaptor in the box, but you can also run this tiny projector on a mobile phone-style rechargeable battery.

    PROS: Speedy charge; feels durable; portable

    US$69.95 + shipping

    Rating: 4.5 / 5

    We love our iPhone 5s. At times a little too much. And overuse leads to a smartphone paperweight, if no one around the office is savvy enough to remember their cable or wall charger. Even worse if we are on the road.

    So, what is the solution? We could ignore that Facebook notification, consider closing our Music app and reconnecting with the surrounding ...
