Sandberg Wireless TouchPad Keyboard

Wednesday, July 30th, 2008

It’s only fitting that I should type the entirety of this review upon the Sandberg Wireless TouchPad Keyboard which it concerns. So that’s exactly what I’ll do. It took me only seconds to get used to the slightly bizarre “ergonomic” key layout which was one of my staggering total of two initial gripes with this […]

Ricoh GR Digital II – hands on review

Wednesday, July 30th, 2008

by Johnus Maximus If you are looking for a ‘point and shoot’ digital camera, then you may want to take a look at the Ricoh GR Digital II. Compact, well built and extremely customisable, this successor to the Ricoh GR Digital has plenty to offer photography enthusiasts, but priced a little over £300 it’s perhaps […]

Gadgetoid Facebook Group

Tuesday, July 29th, 2008

At long last I’ve tried embracing the social networking generation by creating a Gadgetoid Facebook group. I’ve never been entirely taken by social networking and my relatively brief stint with Myspace ended with me deleting my account; but Facebook will not let one iota of my personal information escape its sinister clutches. If you’re a […]

Dualit Espressivo Coffee Machine

Friday, July 25th, 2008

I’m a fan of coffee, it’s hip, it’s trendy, it’s in and it’s also a pretty damned fine way of keeping myself awake through a day of programming. Nobody says “let’s go out for a cup of tea” these days, it’s all about coffee and high street coffee is well known for being quite steeply […]

Racedriver GRID

Friday, July 25th, 2008

I am pleasantly surprised with Racedriver GRID which I’ve been brushing with on the PS3 for the past few days. It has brought my single most favourite feature of racing games back; the ability to drive the wrong way round the track and total other racers’ cars in head-on collisions. The damage model makes racing […]

SteelSeries Ikari Laser Mouse

Thursday, July 24th, 2008

It has been a long time since I last reviewed a gaming mouse and there’s clearly been some evolution or revolution between then and now, at least amongst the engineers at SteelSeries. This time I will be looking at the SteelSeries Ikari Laser Mouse and laying upon it the praise that it deserves.

Sandberg Wireless Touchpad Keyboard

Thursday, July 24th, 2008

With PCs getting smaller, rapidly growing into more media centric devices and finding their way into living rooms (not to mention the PS3) decent, wireless, all-in-one, sofa friendly keyboard/mouse combinations are becoming more important. The Sandberg Wireless Touchpad Keyboard is a new entry into this range of devices from Sandberg and, as the name suggests, […]

Creative Zen Mozaic

Thursday, July 24th, 2008

With a curious new take on styling that I firmly believe should be confined to the floors of Roman bath houses the Creative Zen Mozaic has upon its face a mozaic of buttons and colour toned squares that looks more than a little perculiar.

Nokia N810 Internet Tablet Reviewed

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2008

I introduced the N810 a while back with positive first impressions, and it’s safe to say that those impressions have not changed much even though I find myself wanting a device that combines the strengths of both the N810 and N800 into one, affordable package. Unfortunately, waiting for the next big thing gets you nowhere, […]

Tuesday, July 15th, 2008

If you have trouble with stiff HDMI cables sticking out from your HDMI ports either preventing you getting your television flush against a wall or protruding from a side-mounted HDMI port and looking unsightly then it appears IXOS have the solution. They may not look much but these high quality, high performance adaptors will solve […]
