With the ability to watch the goodies on the go utilizing an existing HBO subscription, the HBO GO app suddenly made train rides and treadmills a whole lot more fun.

[Review] Greedy Spiders Doesn't Need Any Fancy Physics, Prefers To Puzzle You The Old-Fashioned Way

[Updated] Deep Review: Primo Power Core 8200 mAh Portable Battery Pack - Juice When You Need It, And A Whole Lot Of It

If there is one thing I constantly have to think about on a pretty much daily basis, it's juice. Not the kind of juice you pour yourself in the morning at breakfast, but the kind that is needed to power by insatiable electronics on the go. Last August, Phonesuit sent me a review unit of their 1000 mAh Primo Cube, but this year they really stepped up their game and sent over a whopping 8200 mAh portable charger called the Primo Power Core, compared to which the Cube is a mere drop in the bucket.
