You asked for it, you got it!

After rigorous training, brainstorming sessions, and sleepless nights, we are happy to announce that we are finally launching the official GadgetMatch Online Store where you can get all the GadgetMatch-branded merchandise that we’ve been sporting the last few months.

Producing merchandise alongside content is not easy, and our factory elves are still on vacation, so we are launching the store with only one product for now.

Introducing: GadgetNotch

2018 is a tremendous year for innovation. Ever since Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, we’ve seen smartphone after smartphone with the greatest feature ever invented: the notch.

GadgetNotch is handcrafted with love using artisanal upcycled vegan material sourced from Middle Earth

Here at GadgetMatch what we care about most is YOU, the consumer. So we thought, why don’t we give the world — the universe rather — the experience of a brand-new 2018 smartphone?

For an introductory price of US$ 9, you can make your phone great again. With a few clicks, you’ll be getting your very own GadgetNotch right at your doorstep.

GadgetNotch is handcrafted with love by independent artists around the world using artisanal upcycled vegan material sourced from Middle Earth. It will cling to your phone without leaving a permanent trace, the same way you clung to your ex before finally moving on. It will come in black and white so it’s compatible with every smartphone ever invented.

Shipping is also free for orders above US$ 90, so do your Christmas shopping early and get one or two for your friends and family.

So, is this your GadgetNotch? It’s way too early to tell; we will be waiting for YOUR full review.

Our R&D team is also working hard on a version that’s compatible with feature phones like the Nokia 3310. We will let you know as soon as we are ready to roll out.

So you don’t miss any of that, subscribe to our YouTube Channel, like our Facebook page, follow @GadgetMatch on social media, and make GadgetMatch.com your daily habit.

Until the next great idea. Thanks for dropping by!


… and Happy April Fool’s Day! If you had a good laugh, share this article with your friends without spoilers so you can spread the LOLs!

‘Milestones’ celebrates GadgetMatch’s story and commitment

For years of covering technology

Published

on

It’s been five years since GadgetMatch was established. Founded on the premise of making life better and easier through technology, we’ve come a long way since then. We saw how technology plays a key role in shifting our lives. Even then, we’re still looking forward to what innovations tomorrow will bring.

To commemorate our journey in covering the latest news in technology, we tasked a Filipino artist to create a set of wallpapers entitled Milestones, reflecting our story.

Milestones: Peak

Peak symbolizes being on top of what we do; the pleasure of seeing a beautiful content created after an arduous journey. It emphasizes on the contentment we feel about our quality work and a metaphor for looking over the horizon; we won’t limit our creativity and will never stop innovating, just like technology.

Milestones: Passion

Passion is the inner fire inside us. There’s a burning desire we have from day one, and we never let it die because we stay committed to our vision and mission: Explaining technology in simple terms. While keeping up with technology can be exhausting, our passion burns stronger.

Milestones: Perception

Perception is a wallpaper that relies on the viewer’s perspective. It’s a reflection of people’s perception and our journey that we don’t share. Are we going up or going down? In reality, we’re all just going up, and the stairway symbolizes the little steps we take to achieve our goal. We’re not rushing, but we’re on our way. Help us achieve 1 million subscribers on YouTube!
