CES 2013 has been bringing out some great products for us to get our hands on but some products downright stink. Take the iPotty for instance, a children’s potty training toilet with an iPad stand is taking iAccesories a little too far. I’ll let the picture speak for itself but no way would I ever put my iPad in that thing! Now I bashed on the amount of iPhone cases that we are seeing at CES and I’ve tried a lot of iPhone cases out but I think I finally found the perfect case. Hit the more for a look at the best form meets function case that’ll keep you entertained all day long.

Pinball Machines, iPhone cases and Gaming Tablets oh my! The amount of iPhone cases at this year’s CES is nearly sickening. Everything from bamboo to Marvel Superhero’s and skin-tight waterproof suites. It’s become very obvious that this year’s CES is a tradeshow and not so much a product announcement platform. 3D is out for the most part and audio is a big factor this year. Monster (Creators of Beats by Dre) abounds alongside every rapper/hip hop artist out there promoting a new pair of headsets. No real feedback has come back on most of the overpriced, gaudy audio devices but if you are looking for something to style with your newest pair of kicks the options abound. Your money is probably better spent on a pair of Skullcandy headsets giving you a better bang for your buck. Hit the break for more…

Why Battlefield 3 will have you glued to your seat

When the latest instalment of the Battlefield franchise arrived at my doorstep, I can easily say that I was more than just excited. Having played both Battlefield 2 and Bad Company 2, I had great expectations for the shooter, expectations which were duly met.
The first option the game offered was to download the HD texture pack, which, in my hurry to start the campaign, I ignored it. So as I started the campaign I noticed little things, the scenery looking flat and poorly rendered fire. I went back and installed the texture pack. The effect of the pack could not be missed, with sparks, dust and explosions all appearing on my screen in their HD glory.
The campaign itself was at time very tedious. Frequent press-button-now scenes became dull, making for a less than exciting ending. Similarly glitches in the game were far from uncommon. At one point and found myself staring in confusion at my Russian comrades who could materialise through walls and doors, leaving me frustrated and having to restart. Overall though, the campaign is short and sweet. It follows American soldier Henry Blackburn who is thrown head first into a nuclear bomb plot. Unsurprisingly there are Russians and a Middle-Eastern threat involved, which has become the seemingly staple enemy of modern FPS’.
