iTwin SecureBox Review and Giveaway

A few months ago, Joshua reviewed the iTwin — an interesting device ($99) which when plugged into a computer, automatically creates an unlimited and secure file sharing network. Now, the iTwin has been updated to include SecureBox, an encryption feature which utilises Dropbox. We’ll take you through iTwin SecureBox and show you exactly how it works. We’re also giving away 5 iTwins at the end of this review! So if you’re into file security and encryption, or if you’re someone who values privacy, you won’t want to miss this giveaway.

Apple iPad Mini Review and Giveaway

This is a much overdue review, I’ll admit, but instead of publishing a breezy overview of the iPad mini, I wanted to experience and integrate it in my daily life in order to truly tell you if Apple’s latest creation — this overpriced 7.9″ tablet — is really worth spending so much money on. Before we begin, here’s a disclaimer: I love all Apple products from iPhones to iMacs. But when the iPad mini was announced, I wasn’t so sure. Anyway, we purchased a Slate 16GB iPad mini (WiFi-only model) for $329 to find out if Apple poured as much heart and soul into it; as they have for their previous products. After the review, we’re giving this 16GB iPad mini away to one MakeUseOf reader!

Evernote – Your Unified Notebook [Mac]

How do you keep track of the havoc of your online life? How do you quickly save an article for later reading? How do you make a note of a recipe or instructional to refer to later on a different computer? We’ve been through this topic several times before, and discussed many ways of storing notes, documents and organising emails online. But personally, I find Evernote to be the most complete package. And since we haven’t published a review of its desktop client yet, here it is.
