As I stated when [reviewing the Minisuit 3-in-1 Folio Case](http://www.daniweb.com/hardware-and-software/tablets-and-mobile-devices/reviews/477039/review-minisuit-3-in-1-keyboard-folio-case-nexus-7-2013#) for the Nexus 7 2013, the most important things a writer looks for in any keyboard are key travel, spacing and feedback. Obviously a travel keyboard throws some additional requirements into the mix such as weight, size and battery life. However, when it comes to the single most important factor for me personally, and that's key spacing, the Minisuit Ultra-Thin Aluminium Bluetooth Keyboard Cover falls flat. There is simply no spacing at all, the keys just seem to merge together and it is very hard indeed not to hit the …

For a professional writer of any description, there are three things that matter when it comes to the keyboard that they are using: key spacing, key travel and key feedback. The Minisuit 3-in-1 Folio manages, as far as any such small keyboard is ever going to achieve, to get the key spacing and feedback right. The scrabble tile keys are far enough part, in that there is sufficient gap between them and above/below them to prevent too much mis-keying. This is the bane of most travel keyboards, the keys are badly spaced and you end up making so many typos …

This one is for UK-based DaniWeb members, or those of you who are visiting the UK and want to be able to charge your smartphone via a USB mains charger that is neither bulky or heavy. I'm not usually the type of person to get excited by a plug, honestly, but I will make an exception for the Mu. ![Mu02](/attachments/small/0/Mu02.jpg "align-right") The designer of the Mu, Min-Kyu Choi, says that he was frustrated by the dimensions of a traditional plug and thought that it was about time to redesign something that dated back to 1947 and hadn't really changed much …

Continuing the Lord of the Rings theme that I started with in the title of this review, I believe it is Gandalf who says "there is only one Lord of the Ring, only one who can bend it to his will. And he does not share power" but he sure wasn't saying it to the One|Cable. It exists to share power between most every kind of mobile device you own, apart from those that have a proprietary charging connector which are not made by Apple. As long as your smartphone, tablet, satnav, MP3 player, Bluetooth headset etc etc accepts either …

DaniWeb recently reported [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/hardware-and-software/netbooks-tablets-and-mobile-devices/news/376700/1621471"]how Apple had won a ban on the sale of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet in Europe [/URL] and even [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/hardware-and-software/netbooks-tablets-and-mobile-devices/news/376718"]published the rather generic-looking design drawings[/URL] at the heart of the case. Now a Düsseldorf regional court judge, Johanna Brueckner-Hoffmann, has heard the Samsung appeal against the ban and concluded that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 gives a "clear impression of similarity" to the iPad: the result being that the ban has been upheld, but only in Germany rather than being across the EU. If [URL="http://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/09/21/samsung_could_block_iphone_5_in_europe_patent_wars_rumble_on/"]reports[/URL] are to be believed, Samsung could fight back with an attempt …

[ATTACH=RIGHT]22424[/ATTACH]When it comes to robotic pets I still have my heart set on one day owning a Sony AIBO as I always wanted one when they arrived on the geek scene, but could never justify the cost. The Desk Pet TankBot is no AIBO; for a start it's a tank and not a dog, it's a lot smaller and far less intelligent no matter what the packaging blurb tells you. Oh, and it's nowhere near as cute either. But then again, a second hand AIBO (should you be able to find one for sale in good working condition) is going …

There's only one iPad (discounting model variations) but there's a small army of Android tablets demanding your attention and your money. The question is, are any of them better than the market defining Apple? DaniWeb goes hands-on to find out... If you think about tablet computing these days then the chances are what you actually mean is the Apple iPad vision of a slate-based device. That's not altogether surprising when you consider how long Microsoft, and others, had been trying to break this market only to falter and fail. The iPad, without doubt, energized a genre by pretty much redefining …

While it is possible to look at the iPad as being a big apple (with a small 'a') and the Galaxy Tab a small apple, comparing the Streak to the iPad really is more like apples and oranges. Indeed, the two are so different in every regard that to try and make any sensible comparison is all but impossible so I'm not going to bother. Indeed, I think the more important question that needs to be asked is less whether the Streak is an iPad killer and more whether it is a tablet at all. With an overall size of …

It was back in November 2010 when we first took an [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/hardware-and-software/netbooks-tablets-and-mobile-devices/reviews/327951"]in-depth look at the Android tablet alternatives to the Apple iPad[/URL], and to be honest we weren't really that impressed with any of them. The new Motorola Xoom, however, promises to change all that. The Xoom is the first tablet to feature the latest Google Android 3.0 'Honeycomb' Operating System, and was the Best of Show winner at the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show earlier this year. But how does what some have been calling the first Android-powered tablet that deserves to be taken seriously stack up against [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/hardware-and-software/apple/ios-iphone-os/reviews/354609"]the new …
