Manufacturer: Newer Technology
Current Retail Price: $24.95 (currently on sale for $9.00)

Last year we took a look at the NuGuard KXs Screen Protector for iPhone 4/4S and concluded that it was excellent.  There were a couple of small quirks, but its look, feel and functionality were second to none.  We’ve had a while now to test the equivalent KXs screen protector for iPhone 6 Plus to see if it continues the series’ fine tradition.  Does the KXs screen protector for iPhone 6 Plus keep pushing the envelope or just tread water? Read on to find out if this iteration is as impactful as the last.

hub-it

Manufacturer: Eggtronic
Current Retail Price: $79.99 US

With so many electronics on the go these days it can be hard to find a place to plug them all in. Multiple-USB AC plugs, which we normally prefer, go a way toward helping this problem but they’re usually restricted to just 2 or 3 USB ports at most. Eggtronic saw a need for a highly customizable Cadillac-level option in the realm of USB hubs and charging accessories, so they launched the HUB IT. We got our hands on a review unit of this interesting product, so read on to see if we think the HUB IT is charged or running on empty.

Manufacturer: 8Bitdo
Current Retail Price: $39.99

Last year we reviewed 8Bitdo’s great take on a wireless Bluetooth Famicom controller, the FC30. This year, 8Bitdo has expanded its offerings to include a similar controller, but this time based on the classic NES controller. Does their NES-style controller live up to the lofty reputation they have established for themselves with the FC30 or is it a quick cash-in on their early successes? Read on to find out a bit more.

NuGuard KXs Screen Protector for iPhone 4/5

Current Retail Price: $9.99 (“Case Friendly” 4/4S) / $10.79 (Full Size 4/4S)

Let’s face it, there are thousands of kinds of screen protectors for smartphones these days.  I personally have paid everywhere from about $2.00 to $30.00 for screen protectors of varying quality for my iPhone over the years.  Not all screen protectors are made equal either, each one seems to tout a different feature: anti-glare, extra clarity, multiple Hs of hardness, even extra-oleophobic surfaces.  I even ordered “Diamond” screen protectors once thinking that they would be “tough like a diamond” and when they arrived they were so full of sparkles that they considerably obstructed the iPhone screen.  To compliment their NuGuard KX line of slimmer protective iPhone cases (that we quite liked) NewerTech recently launched the NuGuard KXs line of screen protectors for the iPad, iPhone, and even Galaxy S4.  These screen protectors (or “screen armour”) claim to go a step further in protecting your costly devices’ screens by adding a moderate level of impact absorption into the mix.  Does the NuGuard KXs follow in the footsteps of its namesake or does it just blend in with the screen protecting masses?  Read on to find out how impactful our impression is of this new screen protection contender.

Developer: Zen Studios
Publisher: Zen Studios
Genre: Pinball
Players: 1
Console Reviewed: PS3/PS Vita (PSN)
Also Available On: Xbox 360 (XBLA), PC/Mac, iOS, Android
ESRB Rating: E (Everyone)
Progress: Played each board several times on both systems and achieved decent high scores

Zen Pinball 2 and its inexplicably numerous variations on just about every currently available platform is about as ubiquitous as a pinball platform could possibly be.  In most of its forms, the core Zen Pinball 2 platform is free with extremely protracted demos of a few available tables included, so you’re expected to purchase packs of pinball tables to get any real gaming experience out of the game.  The first three of ten planned Star Wars themed DLC pinball tables for the Zen Pinball 2 suite were launched recently with designs based on Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, the character Boba Fett and the animated TV series The Clone Wars.  Is the Force with this first batch of pinball tables or do they belong to the ever-growing dark side of licensed Star Wars video games? Read on to see how we liked our pinball Jedi training.

NuGuard KX iPhone 4/4S/5 Case

There are a lot of cases on the market for iPhones that protect them by surrounding them in thick metal, rubber, or both.  These cases, while utilitarian to some degree, always add an ungodly amount of bulk to your once sleek and portable device.  For many consumers, including myself, a huge bulky phone is too high of a price to pay for ultimate protection and peace of mind.  Newer Technology is attempting to bridge the gap between inconveniently bulky protective cases and the sleeker, less protective ones that many opt for instead with their NuGuard KX Protective Case line for the iPhone 4, 4S, and 5.  So is their new case as tough as nails or like nails on a chalkboard?  Find out what we thought about our time with the NuGuard KX after the jump.
