ViewSonic VX2260wm, 1080p On A 22″ TFT

Wednesday, November 5th, 2008

16:9 aspect ratio displays are looking like the next thing in line to sweep over modern computing and gaming. With movie aspect ratios growing ever wider and shorter our 16:10 screens are looking somewhat narrow and leave us with some serious letter boxing. Ick! ViewSonic have pushed out the VX2260wm, a 1080p, 16:9 display packed […]

Noise.io iPhone Synthesizer And Controller Review

Wednesday, November 5th, 2008

I was fortunate enough to get my hands on Noise.io a couple of days before its release. Now, a couple of days after, I have been absolutely stunned by the iPhone synthesizer and even bought the application, despite already having it, to support the small but talented development team who have invested months in this […]

Sony Rolly Dancing Mp3 Player

Monday, November 3rd, 2008

Whilst perusing a Sony store looking for an all-in-one computer suitable for wall mounting an enthusiastic attendant gave me a demonstration of the Sony Rolly. And it is hard not to be enthusiastic about the Rolly. It’s an interesting concept, a dancing Mp3 player, that moves fluidly and accurately in time with the music emitting […]

Microsoft Xmas Showcase 2008

Monday, November 3rd, 2008

You may, or may not, have noticed that we’re getting fairly close to that most wonderful time of the year, when radio stations start playing Mistletoe & Wine, scarf and gloves become a daily necessity and mince pies are back on the supermarket shelves. It’s also a time of the year where a fiercely drawn […]

FingerMouse Is Here To Save The Day

Monday, November 3rd, 2008

I currently have the most perculiar of mice attached to my right index finger. It’s known only as “FingerMouse” and it is exactly what the name alludes to. A mouse that you use with a single finger…oh and a thumb for mouse clicks. FingerMouse is a very intruiging idea executed in such a way that […]

Tangent Quattro MK2 Review

Monday, November 3rd, 2008

I’ve been playing with the Tangent Quattro MK2 for the past few days and absolutely love it. It’s small, packs a serious sonic punch for its size and has classic good looks to boot. The one thing I don’t love is the FM Radio. It’s just a little bit too old school for me, and […]

Antec Notebook Cooler and Notebook Cooler 200

Monday, November 3rd, 2008

I’ve been eyeing up Notebook Cooling solutions for some time now, but have not got around to taking a proper look at any until now. My findings are mixed, whilst Notebook Coolers seem somewhat unnecessary for machines that should be perfectly capable of cooling themselves, they have their benefits and are incidentally quite useful for […]

Vaio VGC-LV1S VS 24″ iMac

Monday, November 3rd, 2008

I’ll always be a PC user at heart, despite my almost total migration to Macs, that’s why the temptation of the Vaio LV has kicked in and usurped my plans to wall mount a 24″ iMac in the bedroom in lieu of a SlingCatcher and 26 or 32″ LCD television. My trip to the Microsoft […]
