Open Pandora Working And Portable Unit Demo

Tuesday, March 24th, 2009

Wow. They really know how to prompt second thoughts in respect to netbook purchases!

Rising Star Games for Nintendo DS triple-review

Saturday, March 21st, 2009

Reviews by Johnus Maximus Are you looking for some games to keep your DS alive during the morning commute? If so, check out this triple play review in which I give you the low down on three titles that are available right now from publishers Rising Star Games. The first review is for Dungeon Maker, […]

Flower Power

Friday, March 20th, 2009

At the request of John I hit the PS3 Store to pick up Nobi Nobi (aka Stretchy Stretchy) Boy, the incredibly low price came as a bit of a surprise but I also remembered that Flower had slipped past me for a couple of weeks and decided to include it in my purchase which came […]

Long Awaited SlingCatcher Update Arrives

Friday, March 20th, 2009

I’ve been hanging on to the SlingCatcher for the past few months with a view to quickly jumping on an anticipated firmware release which may or may not have incorporated new functionality. The good news is that the latest release, which I earnestly updated the Catcher to last night, includes new functionality.

Korg LP350 First Impressions

Wednesday, March 18th, 2009

Yesterday I arrived home to find an absolutely behemoth, obelisk*-like box towering over everything else in my living room. It contained the Korg LP350 Digital Piano which Korg so kindly sent for a spot of ivory tickling. The Korg LP350 is the latest in Korgs line of mid-range compact digital pianos. It sits above the […]

Open Pandora Prototype Assembly

Saturday, March 14th, 2009

Some great photos of the Pandora Prototype assembly process have been posted on the Open Pandora developer blog. They do, slightly, make me regret blowing my Pandora fund on a Samsung NC10, but sitting here using OSX (albeit with no battery indicator) on a Netbook is an experience in itself. Fingers crossed for Pandora review […]

Quake 3 On The Pandora

Saturday, March 14th, 2009

As the developers themselves put it, there’s nothing that need be said here. I’ll simply add: wow.

Wrath Of The Lich King

Monday, March 9th, 2009

Well I’ve been playing (read: reviewing) Wrath of the Lich King for some months now and, for the most part, thoroughly enjoying it. The new content is surprisingly actually quite good and, in my humble opinion, far, far more entertaining, varied and fun than that of classic World of Warcraft and The Burning Crusade. Wrath […]

Samsung NC10

Tuesday, March 3rd, 2009

It seems that every man and his dog has a Samsung NC10, and Paul over at Modaco is no exception. His continued success in getting-OSX-to-run-on-things-it-really-shouldn’t has kept me going and finally resulted in my very own triple-boot Samsung NC10. I eventually got the iDeneb CD to boot by copying it (Carbon Copy Cloner or Restore) […]

Ricoh CX1 With Expanded Dynamic Range

Monday, March 2nd, 2009

Yes, we’re still in bed with Ricoh, loving their cameras and not making much of an effort to broaden our horizons in this respect. The thing is, though, I genuinely do like Ricoh cameras and seem to have them in for review frequently enough that I haven’t updated my own digital camera in many years. […]
