Mophie Juice Pack 3G with iPhone

Okay, we’re mobile warriors here at Gear Live, and the battery life is the only negative for me when it comes to my . The Mophie Juice Pack 3G aims to fix that problem, and so we took it to task. Now, mind you, not everyone uses up their battery as quick as I do - I have two email accounts that are on push data, and I also push calendars and contacts as well.

That’s where the Mophie Juice Pack steps in, aiming to provide that extra battery goodness. Read on to find out why it earned a spot in our Holiday Gift Guide.

Nintendo announces Wii MotionPlus controller add-on

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: E3, Hardware, Nintendo, Wii

Wii Motion Plus

Right before this morning’s Xbox Media Briefing here at , Nintendo announced the new Wii Motion Plus controller add-on. Basically, Wii MotionPlus is an accessory that attaches to the end of the Wii Remote, allowing it to more accurately trace motion in 3D space by constantly monitoring and orienting the controller. Every movement you make with the WiiMote is rendered indentically onscreen, resulting in true 1:1 response. Basically, the device gives you the Wii Remote as it should have been since the start.

See the full release from themselves after the jump. We are sure we will be seeing at least one title tomorrow morning that supports the new accessory during the Nintendo Media Briefing.
