I never knew I wanted a GemBox until I had one

God is a Geek | 2016-07-04

Anyone who knows me, or even follows me on Twitter (shameless plug), will know that I am a bit of an Apple fanboy. I’m rocking a MacBook Air, iPhone 6 Plus and an iPad Pro, and my dislike for Android has been well documented. So when the GemBox turned up and was billed as an Andorid games console I was not expecting to like it, especially as some of its key features require a good internet connection, which is only a pipe dream for me.

You don’t need a console or a PC to play any more, as these titles prove.
While gaming hardware gets better and better, it’s not getting a great deal cheaper. Want a new VR headset? You’ll need to cut off an arm and a leg first, which makes those clever controllers it comes with rather tricky to hold. 4K PlayStation? Sure, why not. Just remember to shell out for a 4K TV while you’re down the shops, too.

Hardware Review – GEM Box: A budget all-in-one Android microconsole

Flickering Myth | 2016-06-06

When it comes to the home entertainment streaming market, business is booming. More and more people are making the decision to get rid of their digital TV subscriptions in favour of the Amazon Fire Stick, Google Chromecast and the Roku Stick. Small, affordable streaming services that offer more choice to consumers in terms of television and music content, and customisability are beginning to become the norm in the average household, so where does gaming fit into this? The Amazon Fire Stick and Google Chromecast do offer up a selection of playable games, but are very limited in terms of variety and compatibility. With this in mind, surely the next big step in this area of popular technology would be one that brings more focus to console-like games, right? Enter the GEM Box.

Gone are the dark days of low-res entertainment. Banished to the bin of bad telly be the buffering disappointment of 720p. Next-gen streaming sticks and bandwidth-busting TV boxes are here – and they signal the arrival of a hi-res revolution.
Whilst a world of from-the-web telly awaits, choosing the right box for your TV takes a bit of thought. Fancy 4K? After an Apple? Want to stream some games? One device most certainly does not offer all these features.
