The Front Runner: Apple iPad Mini

Even though there are many other more powerful and capable Apple tablets on the market, you just can’t beat the sub $400 iPad Mini for usability and value for money. It’s high-res 7.8-inch screen with Apple Pencil compatibility means it’s ideal for playing games or watching movies on-the-go. Add to that its tiny dimensions and weight, and its eight megapixel front-facing camera, and you’ve got yourself one of the most practical and enjoyable pieces of tech on sale.

The Comparable: Samsung Galaxy Tab S6

If you’re more of an Android person, then Samsung’s $600 Tab S6 is the best of the bunch. Featuring a 10.5-inch screen and excellent S Pen compatibility, the S6 has tons of sophisticated features – and it looks stunning. With up to 256GB of storage and 8GB of RAM, and an optional keyboard add-on, it’ll serve a travelling office worker well. Its 13MP front-facing camera ain’t too shabby either. 

The Wildcard: Microsoft Surface Pro 7

Speaking of travelling office workers, this tablet has something its Android and iOS rivals don’t – Windows. If you’re after a desktop-esque experience, then this is it. There’s its beautiful 12.3-inch PixelSense display, a choice of Intel Core i3, i5 and i7 processors, and up to 1TB of storage and 16GB of RAM. Sure, it can cost you way over $1,000, but if you’re after the executive edge, look no further.

The Budget Option: Amazon Fire HD 10

Called “the most reliable 10-inch tablet you can buy for $150” by PC Mag, it may not be as polished as the aforementioned models, but with around eight hours of battery life, it’s perfect for backseat travellers and frequent streamers. Plus, its 32 or 64GB of internal storage means that you can save all your favourite games and movies for on-the-go entertainment. Simple and affordable, yet very capable.

The Deluxe: Apple iPad Pro 11

If you’re after the best, but still don’t want to break the bank too badly, then Apple’s iPad Pro 11 is the sweet spot. From around $800, the tablet’s 11-inch display, up to 1TB of storage and seriously impressive processing power, give it a laptop-like feel. And we think it’s much easier to handle than the bigger 12.9-inch Pro model. You can also clip the Apple Pencil to its body magnetically for added convenience.

So which tablet should you go for? Well, they pretty much belong to one of three categories; budget, casual or business. Just be sure the tablet you’re buying is fit for what you want or need it for.

Top 5 Home Gym Accessories (2020)

Welcome to GetMojo, we do the research so you don’t have to! In this video, we’re offering our picks for the 5 best home gym accessories on the market in 2020.

Whereas some gym equipment is focused on offering a very specific kind of workout, there are some awesome accessories out there that aim to enhance or change up your pre-existing routine. But which of these should you have in your home gym? Well, we’ve sifted through numerous website and consumer reviews to present our 5 recommended products. Okay, first up.

Extra Comfort: Gaiam Essentials Premium Yoga Mat

This one might seem pretty obvious, but a good, comfortable yoga mat can be absolutely essential to a range of different exercises – including sit-ups, crunches, push-ups and planks. Oh, and yoga, of course. This $20 Gaiam yoga mat is particularly thick at a quarter of an inch, enhancing comfort for the user. And it even comes equipped with an over-the-shoulder carry sling for added convenience. 

Extra Intensity: POWER GUIDANCE Battle Rope

If you’re looking for a new full-body exercise to mix up your workout routine, then battle ropes are a great option. Offering a unique way to improve your mobility, burn fat and have fun while doing so, this $100 battle rope is incredibly well constructed and designed to take a beating. Also, this particular battle rope comes equipped with an anchor point – which you sometimes otherwise have to buy separately.

Extra Punch: RDX Punching Bag

Punching bags are another great full-body workout solution. And this $125 RDX bag is designed to handle any kind of beating you throw at it. Punching bags offer an excellent way to engage your arms, legs and core muscles. You can pretty much unleash your full force on it, which in turn helps you build strength. This RDX bag also includes a wall-mounting bracket and a set of gloves. 

Extra Steps: The Step Original Aerobic Platform

You can use a gym bench – or even the staircase steps in your home – to help you with dumbbell exercises and plyometrics, but having an adjustable platform step for your home gym is super-helpful and convenient. The Step Original Aerobic Platform is priced at around $100 and offers a non-slip surface that can be adjusted for height. Those who regularly do plyometric exercises will know how small tweaks to step height can make a huge difference to the intensity of your workout. 

Extra Resistance: Fit Simplify Resistance Band Set

A resistance band is like the Swiss Army Knife of the gym, because it can be used for just about anything. As well as being easily transportable, and offering a low-impact workout, it offers unique exercise opportunities, and can be a great substitute for typical, sometimes mundane, gym exercises like dumbbell curls. This $35 Fit Simplify set includes a wide variety of band strengths, and even comes with a door anchor for added versatility.

So which gym accessories should you choose? Well, if you have certain exercises that you find difficult, or a little boring, then finding an accessory to mix it up and make working out more manageable is a great idea.

Top 5 Water Bottles (2020)

Welcome to GetMojo, we do the research so you don’t have to! In this video, we’re offering our picks for the 5 best water bottles on the market.

If you’ve already started looking, then you’ll know that there’s certainly more than one way to stay hydrated, with water bottles coming in all sorts of shapes and sizes. But, we’re here to help. After sifting through multiple review websites and consumer reviews, we’ve put together a list of our top 5 recommended products.

Note: Clicking links in this article may generate affiliate revenue for GetMojo.

The Front Runner: Nalgene Tritan Wide Mouth

Ideal for busy gym goers, Nalgene’s Tritan Wide Mouth has been the brand’s bestselling water bottle for more than 20 years. With a wide range of sizes and colours – and with prices starting from just $10, this bottle features a wide opening allowing for easy filling and cleaning. It also features a millimetres and ounces read out on its side so you can stay on top of how much you’re drinking. If you’re after brand solidarity and reliability, then Nalgene really is the gold standard in this category.

The Comparable: Embrava Sports Water Bottle

While perhaps not as practical as the Nalgene Tritan, Embrava’s $20 sports bottle is a solid, reliable 18 ounce bottle with a sleek design and multiple color options. Praised by Amazon consumers for its leak-proof lid and for Embrava’s excellent customer service, it’s ideal for those that need a compact water bottle for hiking or taking to the gym.

The Clever One: Platypus DuoLock

On the subject of hiking, if you’re after something that can be seamlessly stored after and or during use, Platypus has a great range of fold flat pouches. Our pick is the $10 Platypus DuoLock, a 1-liter pouch that can be folded completely flat after use or hung on a backpack when full, thanks to its built-in carry clip. Due to its super compact construction however, it may not be quite as durable as some of the others on this list. 

The Budget Option: Contigo AUTOSEAL

Although coming in at around $15, the Contigo AUTOSEAL is a surprisingly sophisticated bottle. Contigo boasts that its double walled vacuum seal keeps drinks cold for up to 28 hours – and if its impressive 5 star Amazon reviews are anything to go by, then that’s absolutely true. On top of its cooling abilities, it also comes available in a variety of vibrant colours and most consumers claim that its lid is leak free. 

The Hot (and Cold) One: Takeya Actives Insulated Water Bottle

Keeping cold things cold is one thing, but this $25 Takeya bottle can do something a lot of other bottles can’t – it can keep drinks hot for up to 12 hours. The 24 ounce stainless steel bottle was featured in Esquire’s 15 best water bottles for 2020 list and is available in pretty much any colour you can think of. Featuring a convenient loop handle, and the option of either a spout or straw lid, it’s ideal for both gym and office use. 

So which water bottle should you choose? Although all of them on this list make great drinking bottles, many have unique features and some are better than others when it comes to leakages and durability – so be sure to take a look at other consumer’s opinions if you’re uncertain.

The Amazing Evolution of Video Game Controllers

The controller; synonymous with gaming, and as self-descriptive as a piece of hardware gets. Thumbsticks, buttons, paddles, bongo drums, hand gestures… It’s how we connect directly with the actions and characters in a game and without a controller we would be condemned to just stare at the start screen. 

Recently, we sat down with Adam Coe, the CEO and founder of Evil Controllers, a group of dedicated developers and professionals who give your controllers an evil touch. 

And together, we’re going to bring you the complete history of gaming’s most important and memorable video game peripheral – the controller.

Adam Coe, Founder and CEO of Evil Controllers.

“It started back in 2007, in my dorm room at the university of Arizona. At the time I was an avid Halo 2 player, playing my 5, 6, 7 hours a day and I simply wanted to improve my play style” said Adam.

Chapter 1 – The Origin

The very first game controller dates back to the late 50’s when American physicist William A. Higinbotham used an oscilloscope to create the world’s first video game – “Tennis for Two”. This simple game was played with only a knob and a button. The whole thing only took a few weeks for Higinbotham and a technician to assemble. Despite a successful showing at the Brookhaven National Laboratory Expo, Higinbotham would not pursue further into developing games. Little did he know this would spark an entire industry.

It wasn’t until the 1970’s when we started seeing more diverse (and awkward) controllers. Many retained the idea of knobs, dials, and buttons, but some went a little too over-the-top. The RCA Studio II, for example, looked like an oversized calculator. Then, you had controllers like the Coleco Telstar Arcade’s, which attempted to incorporate three different controllers with one peripheral – one with knobs, one with a steering wheel, and one with a plastic handgun. (Yeah, we can’t make stuff like THAT these days…) Shockingly enough, a handful of these controllers did support eight-way directional inputs such as the Fair Channel F console.

We didn’t start seeing the joystick we’ve come to know until 1977 when Atari introduced the Atari 2600. With its simplistic design, featuring four-way directional input and a single button, the 2600’s controller made playing games feel much more intuitive than the more complex nature of their competitors.

Atari 2600

So, why did it take us so long to get to the point between 1958 when Higinbotham developed “Tennis for Two” and 1977 when the Atari 2600 debuted? It is important to know that video games were still brand new, and we were still trying to figure out how games should be played. Adam points out that delayed communication between developers and consumers hindered progress. 

“I sympathized with the developers from back in the 70s, 80s and 90s because of the resources and structure of the world at the time, you know without having the internet and the consumer feedback everything is so delayed. You created a product, it releases, you hope it does well, you get that feedback and you have to implement that feedback. And this is all with significant delays in communication” remarked Adam.

Enter Nintendo in 1980. After spending years creating playing cards and toys, the House that Mario would soon build sought after other business ventures. Originally hired as a technician, Gunpei Yokoi was brought on to help Nintendo with the expansion. While the company would see success with Yokoi’s “Ultra Hand” toy and the Color TV Game systems, Nintendo wanted Yokoi and his team to do something that wasn’t the hundredth variation of “Pong”. In 1980, Yokoi and Nintendo would introduce a miniature device known as the “Game & Watch” series. The games started out with two buttons to move characters – one to move the player character right, and one to move them left. It wouldn’t be long before these handheld games would implement four buttons, but they would be a little uncomfortable to press. To fix this, Yokoi traded the buttons for a small, cross-shaped lever that could be programmed for eight directions. This was what we now know as the “D-pad”.

Gunpei Yokoi – Nintendo

The controller’s next milestone would occur a few years after the events of the “Game & Watch” series when Nintendo had their eyes on the home console market. The only problem was that they also wanted their product to be more accessible unlike the obscenely priced machines from their competitors. Deciding to get rid of the keyboard entirely, Nintendo found that they would need to create a new way for players to communicate with games. Introducing the Nintendo Entertainment System, which came with the already revolutionary D-pad dedicated to one side. Of course, this wasn’t the only reason why the NES succeeded with its controller. 

“I would imagine at the time, in that age they found it very simple to use as they were playing Mario with just a few buttons and so from that perspective I thought it was a perfect starting point to a video game controller” said Adam.

And how did Nintendo’s competitors handle this success? Well, Atari certainly wasn’t turning heads with its odd, remote control hybrid, and the Jaguar’s controller wasn’t any better, causing the manufacturer to dip out of the console market entirely. The Commodore 64 Games System, on the other hand, would try to bring joysticks back and keep keyboards with home consoles. Alas, the system never caught on. SEGA, Sony, and SNK would attempt their own formats while still using Nintendo’s blueprint of “d-pad on left, face buttons on right”.

Adam states “The only thing I really think that could make an improvement to the controllers back then is kinda obvious now, but simply being wireless.”

Chapter 2 – Improving The Standard

Back in the early years of video games, durability wasn’t much of a thought. The 1962 game “Spacewar!” required users to be extremely careful with the machine as it was easy for someone to accidentally flip the power off. However, controllers wouldn’t be so fragile as to cause accidental shutdowns. Adam recalls controllers, even back then, being pretty sturdy. 

“As a kid, controllers were really durable and I remember the cartridges of course needing to be blown in but the controllers themselves seemed like they could withstand anything with how durable they were.”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PlayStation_2

As we entered the sixth generation of home consoles with the Nintendo GameCube, SEGA Dreamcast, Sony PlayStation 2, and Microsoft’s original Xbox, one can notice where durability was becoming more of a priority. The GameCube, Xbox, and Dreamcast utilized rather bulky controllers. One could feel how compact their parts were. Clearly, the gaming giants were wanting players comfortable and unable to smash controllers easily.

“Games and controllers go hand in hand with influencing each other. It just depends on the current times, of the type of game and the current available hardware.”

Although, before we got our grubby hands on these consoles, controllers had reached another milestone. In 1996 Nintendo released the Nintendo 64 console with an analog stick to allow for smoother movement in a 3D environment. A year later, Sony introduced a reworked version of the original PlayStation controller – the first DualShock.

Original Nintendo N64 console

“And to improve the game they created, you know, analog thumbsticks that allows you to have more control so you know it took a little bit of back and forth and now its a standard but without those thumbsticks you’re unable to enjoy the game as well as you could and therefore they are a direct impact on each other.”

Not only did this prevent blisters from that incredibly rough D-pad by offering dual analog sticks, but it gave developers more ways to let players control the game’s camera and make it easier to navigate through games. Indeed, analog sticks were quite the innovation back then.

“I mean, I think we can all say that we remember first trying those going into a game and looking up at the sky, turning around and not even being able to play. And to think that that didn’t exist previously whereas now it’s a necessity.”

A player in GTA 5 Online uses their analog sticks to move the camera around 360 degrees.

Adam cites another innovation, one that is often overlooked or easily dismissed – rumble. A few months before Sony launched the first DualShock, Nintendo introduced the Rumble Pak. What’s so special about making a controller vibrate? Well, there’s more to it than just shaking the controller. This has now become a way for developers to effectively communicate errors to the player in addition to immersing them in the game world. We’ve scoffed at things like the Nintendo Switch’s HD Rumble, but this aspect of game design is just as important as thumb sticks.

We take thumbsticks and rumble for granted these days. However, if it wasn’t for these innovations, we wouldn’t be enjoying shooters and fighting games as often as do now. Because of these, our shots are more accurate, our combos can be pulled off quicker, and we can execute complex inputs without straining our hands. Now that we’ve reached this achievement, we’ve caught ourselves at a crossroads.

Chapter 3 – Perfection: The Impossible Goal

The eighth generation may not have accomplished anything too outstanding, but it defines our impossible goal of making things perfect. Adam says the most challenging demand right now is making a controller that meets every demand for every particular play style. 

“And making it a great experience, creating your own controller on a controller creator and really engaging in all the different features that we offer.”

Evil Controller’s Controller Creator Tool

Sony’s DualShock 4 and Xbox’s new controller for the Xbox One have included sensitive triggers and improved rumble features, giving players more feedback than ever before. Their controller plating has gotten tougher, too! As for the Plumber’s Palace, Nintendo has managed to include several control schemes in a single console with the Switch.

However, as gaming has grown and become more popular, we’re finding new problems with our standard controller. How can we make gaming more accessible to those with limited mobility? How can those suffering from muscular dystrophy or have gone through amputation get in on the fun and feel included? While Xbox has introduced their own adaptive controller in 2018, other companies like Evil Controllers are offering to develop special controllers for disabled players.

Microsoft Xbox adaptive controller

“Successful gaming is the ability to allow gamers with limitations to game. So this is something that I’m extremely passionate about. We offer products for these gamers that are so customized that it’s unique to their exact playing style and whether it’s muscular dystrophy or cerebral palsy, an amputee, we’re able to design controllers for these gamers.”

With these ambitions in place for the industry, where can controllers go from here? We’ve already gotten glimpses of where Sony and Microsoft are wanting to take things. With their Elite series, Xbox is looking to bring customization so players can play games with the best control scheme possible. As for Sony’s new DualSense controller, the gaming giant is planning to incorporate adaptive feedback in its triggers and vibration as well as a built-in microphone to allow easier communication between players.

Xbox Elite Controller

One thing companies need to recognize is that the controller is the connection between you and the character.

“I think they’ve identified the controller is what connects you to the game and by integrating things like haptic feedback and even audio into the controller, it’s really bringing a focus back to the controller from not just the functionality standpoint but from the hardware and feature standpoint.”

It’s also important that the next wave of controllers keeps both casual gamers and hardcore gamers in mind as Adam points out.

“Hardcore gamers have different playing styles right, than a casual gamer. A casual gamer may play 10 to 15 hours a week where a hardcore gamer might be 50, 60 or even more. And with that there comes wear and tear on your controller, so we have to create controllers that can withstand that wear and tear. It’s expected with this equipment.”

So, where would be without all of these innovations? Would we still be able to detect hits more easily without rumble? Would we still be using D-pads had Sony not launched the DualShock or if Nintendo never went forward with “Game & Watch”? Would we be enjoying the many games we’re spoiled with today had we not incorporated some of these features? The controller is much more important than we realize. It’s something we take for granted, something that gets more beatings for frustrating gameplay than it rightfully deserves. So, keep them clean, and don’t rage so much. Who knows how much longer we’ll have with them before they’re discontinued? …Or when we make the giant leap to hands-free controls like the Kinect. That was ugly to imagine!

“The next generation controllers probably are gonna have significant improvement to the thumbsticks and that’s something that I would like to see being that it’s been 9 years since the last release I would expect from a hardware standpoint that we would see a tremendous improvement.”

And on that note, we’ll leave you with some Microsoft Kinect memes!

The Front Runner: Igloo Marine Ultra Cooler

Igloo makes some outstanding coolers, from small pull-along 28 quart models to huge 128 quart chests. Our pick would be the 72-quart model, which is available on Amazon for $100. As well as offering UV protection for your beverages, and up to 5 days of ice retention, the 72-quart model can store up to 114 standard 12 oz cans. Plus, its rock hard exterior means it can handle pretty much anything you’re likely to throw at it.

The Budget Option: Coleman FlipLid Personal Cooler

Small enough to carry with you to work if need be, this 5 quart Coleman cooler can store up to 6 cans and costs just $10. With 80 per cent of those that reviewed it on Amazon giving it 5 stars, it’s been praised by consumers for its convenient size and longevity. And, you can choose between red and blue!

The Soft Shell: AO Coolers Canvas Series 24-Pack

Lugging a cooler around can be hard work, but having the option to carry it on your back or on your shoulder can be a massive plus – and AO are pretty much the kings of soft shell coolers. Our pick of their range is the $75, 24-can model from the Canvas Series, which offers up to 24 hours of ice retention and a side pocket for other items. And, it comes in a variety of different colors.

The Wildcard: Coleman Xtreme Wheeled Cooler

It may not be much to look at – and it may not be the biggest cooler at 50 quarts, but for what it lacks in style and capacity, it makes up for in practicality and ruggedness. Featuring a telescopic handle and all-terrain wheels, you can trudge this cooler pretty much anywhere. But, it still does a solid job of cooling, holding ice for up to 5 days and being capable of storing up to 84 cans. It costs just $40 as well!

The Deluxe: Yeti Tundra 45

28 can storage for $300? What’s the deal? Well, the Yeti Tundra isn’t your average cooler. Built like a tank, inside and out, the Tundra 45 features military-grade polyester handles and 2.75-inch thick walls, offering “unparalleled cold retention”, according to thespruceeats.com. Due to its thick shell, a small ice goes a long way with this one. Plus, it’s got a slick design and is available in a series of colors.  

So which cooler should you choose? For most, storage capacity and practicality will likely be the decider. Whether you’re planning on taking one to work or on an expedition, choose appropriately.

The $115 Holbrook is still built with durability in mind however, thanks to rugged polycarbonate frames and lenses. And, of course, they’re available in a ton of color configurations. 

The Retro Pick: Persol Original 649 Series

If you’re specifically after those retro vibes, and you want a style that will last you forever, then Persol’s 649 Original range offers some superb options. Priced at around $160, the 649 Originals offer subtle accents, like a raised central browline, that add undeniable character. They also feature the brand’s patented Meflecto system, which allows the frames to contort to the wearer’s head for added comfort.

The Wildcard: Bose Frames Audio Sunglasses 

While not for everyone, these Bose Audio Sunglasses may catch the attention of gadget-seekers and music-lovers. With built-in open-ear audio, you can connect via Bluetooth and listen to your favorite music on the go, while still being able to listen to what’s going on around you. These $200 sunglasses also feature a built-in microphone for phone calls, and can stream music for up to 3 and a half hours on a single charge.

The Classic: Ray-Ban Aviator Classic

Arguably the most famous style of sunglasses ever, the Ray-Ban Aviators are an absolutely timeless pair. Iconic for movie stars and those who aspire to be like them, the $125 Aviators feature large oval, metal-rimmed frames and are available in a wide variety of colors and lenses, including prescription and polarized. If you want to go for an instantly recognisable style, then Aviators are for you!

So which pair of sunglasses should you choose? Well, it’s important to think about your face shape before buying sunglasses – or any glasses for that matter – so be sure to think about which styles suit you best before taking the plunge.

Priced around $200, this cruiser bike is aimed at women who like to stay relaxed and comfortable when cycling.

With an aluminum frame, the men’s Volare 1200 is super lightweight, making it easy to load on and off the subway, or up the stairs in your office building. It also features a 21-speed set-up, meaning it’s super versatile when it comes to tackling the ever-changing, inner-city terrain. Plus, 21 gears means you can easily burn a few calories on your way to work too. 

The Wildcard: Margaritaville Women’s Cruiser Bike

It can get pretty serious and, well, overwhelming, when shopping online for a bicycle. But this vibrant Margaritaville model is clearly a great option you needn’t pass up. On top of being quirky and eye-catching, this seven-speed bicycle offers a smooth ride and super comfy seat that comes accompanied by a cup holder and an optional convenient storage basket. And it’s surprisingly affordable too, at around $200.

The Deluxe: sixthreezero EVRYjourney Hybrid Cruiser

Not only does this bike offer a relaxed and comfortable upright seating position as well as a lightweight aluminum frame – and the choice of multiple different gear options – it’s just so incredibly cool. Its vintage design is filled with high-quality subtleties like gloss chrome components, fenders, a rear rack and whitewall tires. Plus, its all-black coloring really makes it stand out – especially if you choose a contrasting seat and handlebar combo. And with prices starting around $400, it’s expensive, but it won’t break the bank. 

The All-Rounder: Raleigh Detour 2

There is a very good reason this is our all-rounder pick. Basically, it does everything, and it does it really well. With prices starting around $300, the Raleigh Detour 2 comes with 21 easy-to-shift gears, a solid aluminum frame and tons of size and color options, with a Step Thru frame to make mounting easier. You’re pretty much guaranteed to find a configuration to suit everyone.

So which bike should you choose? Well, it’s worth remembering that bikes are usually customizable. So if you see one you like, but are not a fan of the seat, tires or brakes, then chances are you can upgrade them to suit your needs. So just bear that in mind!
