AGM X3: Actually Rugged AND Premium Performance

Read the full review and enter the giveaway: https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/agm-x3-review/

Our verdict of the AGM X3: 9/10 -The AGM X3 is a rugged and waterproof phone that holds its own as a premium Android device. It takes a beating without breaking a sweat and performs better than any other rugged phone. The main downside is its price, which puts it in the firing line of name brand flagship phones.

Buy the AGM X3: https://amzn.to/2Yz4kJi

Slight correction: Ian meant to say the phone does come with a quick charger, but not a wireless charger in the box

If You Buy Just One DSLR Accessory, It Should Be THIS

While heavy, the unique rear handled design makes it easy to hold as well as removing the need for inversion on underslung shooting. Batteries last all day, and the built-in HDMI wireless transmission to the ZYPlay app is fantastic. If you can only buy one bit of video kit for all your DSLR needs, this should be it.

GEEKS TRY WEIRD US & KOREAN SNACKS: TWINKIES! SLIM JIM! DORITOS!

What's in a Slim Jim? Do Hostess Twinkies expire?

In this week's episode of Tech Geeks Try Stuff, Joel takes us on a journey of weird US snacks, starting with the unmistakeable Slim Jims. Is it a jerky? Is it beef? Who knows?! Then we feast on the cream-filled joy of Twinkies. Next up is Joel's favourite flavour of Doritos - Spicy Sweet Chilli (which was a winner - that's the best Doritos flavour we have ever tasted).

Then we moved on to Korean snacks, and boy was it a lovely surprise! From Lotte's Custard Cream Cakes to shrimp crackers and Janggu (honey dipped snacks), they were the tastiest Korean snacks we've had. What a treat!

Tech geeks are typically found at a desk. In an office. Behind a cubicle. So when we got the chance to meet up in Berlin for IFA, we thought it might be a good idea to get together and try a bunch of the weirdest snacks from around the world. You know - to see what's out there. We literally bit off more than we could chew.

TECH GEEKS TRY STUFF: SPICY INDIAN SNACKS NEARLY KILLED ANYA!

Right, this time the tech geeks braved the world of Indian snacks; some spicy, some not. The spicy one nearly killed Anya though.

These were quick Indian snacks that they would have at tea time, so Indian tea time snacks like wafers, sing bhajiya, chakli, and farsan (which is similar to Bombay Mix).

And they were delicious!

TECH GEEKS TRY STUFF: AWESOME AUSSIE SNACKS & WEIRD MUSK STICKS WTH?

"IT TASTES LIKE MUSK!"

What exactly are musk sticks? Nevermind that, in this video, we'll tastes some of the finest and weirdest foods Australia has to offer. Some of them are actually pretty amazing (like Tim Tam and Kit Kat) - but we can't say the same for Vegemite.

TECH GEEKS TRY STUFF: Weird Canadian Snacks - SOAP FLAVOUR CHEWING GUM, SMOKED SALMON CANDY?!

It's true! We ate all that.

Again, Tina spoilt us with some really great snacks (see our weird German food video if you wanna know what I'm talking about https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DeMOWPtTL80).

This time, we tried some weird Canadian snacks featuring ketchup chips from Lays and Old Dutch, all dressed Ruffles (which I still maintain are the last crisps they make at the end of the day to clean out the machines), what turned out to be cat food, but at least there was a saving grace: Jos Louis. Ah, lovely chocolate covered velvet cake.

Have you tried any of these weird Canadian snacks? Let us know in the comments.

TECH GEEKS TRY STUFF: 2X FIRE NOODLES (8,800 SCOVILLE!)

CAN YOU FEEL THE BURN of 8k SCOVILLE?

So we tried 2x korean fire noodles - and honestly, it wasn't a proper challenge because we split 2 packets among 5 of us (yeah we were in Berlin and fire noodles was in short supply). Still, 8,800 Scoville. Yeah. Also, we tried Jackson's potential cure for spiciness - you guessed it - chocolate. Did it work? Ask Joel.

TECH GEEKS TRY STUFF: Mouth Melting Sour Candy!

Can sour sweets melt your mouth? Apparently.

So we tried a bunch of sour candy to gauge how sour they really are. Turns out, not overly sour but your mouth will melt from eating too many of them. Then rated by our resident sour sweet expert, James Bruce.

TECH GEEKS TRY STUFF: Weird German Foods - Pickled fish for breakfast, blood spread with bits?

Four tech geeks brave some of the weirdest German foods.

Featuring rollmops (pickled herring) which nearly killed Jackson, liverwurst, blood sausages (they were actually just a paste, but yuck), Waldmeister (a green poisonous drink), and SUPER DICKMANN'S. Yeah, we definitely tasted some weird German foods.

If you're brave enough, these are certainly some of the weirdest German foods to try.
