Ricoh CX1 Camera Gets Its Own Website

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

The Ricoh CX1 which is, hopefully, the first in a long-line of CX series cameras which shift away from the mega-pixel race and toward providing a plethora of fun and useful features, has warranted its own personal micro-site. The website attempts to showcase the diverse range of features present in the CX1 and, whilst it […]

World of Warcraft: The Addiction

Tuesday, April 28th, 2009

I’ve heard the tales from many a recovering WoW addict, they suffer from urges to play the game again but, having gone cold turkey, are now deterred by the knowledge that, without an entire life to dedicate to the game, you’re really going to get nowhere. World of Warcraft caters for two particular brands of […]

Krusell HTC Touch Pro Orbit Flex Leather Case

Tuesday, April 28th, 2009

I find Krusell cases to be somewhat of a mixed bag, on one hand their comparatively low prices make them an excellent choice for the less affluent leather fan, on the other hand this low price is very clearly reflected in the finish the cases. The finish, which tends to not quite reach the lofty […]

Halo Wars Mini Review

Tuesday, April 28th, 2009

There are too many games to play, too many gadgets with which to tinker, but not enough time in the day. I’m sure there’s probably not enough time in yours, either, so I’ll keep this review brief and it’ll be all the better for both of us, okay? Right, now that little whinge is over […]

Dead Space Xbox 360 Mini-Review

Tuesday, April 28th, 2009

Dead Space is a would-be Resident Evil set aboard a “planet cracker” mining ship in, well, space. It’s a curious horror game in that it seems to avoid all the typical devices one would expect from such a title. I hate to launch on such a negative note because the game, despite seemingly utterly missing […]

Toying With The VAIO VGC-LV1S

Tuesday, April 28th, 2009

With a bit of spare tinkering time to hand over the Christmas period I decided to take a look at the VAIO VGC-LV1S. Sony sent me a pre-production model which showed off all the design considerations of the expensive but feature packed all-in-one but, alas, none of the performance.

Uniblue Driver Scanner

Monday, April 27th, 2009

Occassionally I pick up a piece of software to review which I am incredibly skeptical about. Uniblue Driver Scanner is a prime example. It purports to scan your system for installed drivers and recommend upgrades which can then be easily downloaded and installed via its UI. The problem, or so I thought, with this is […]

Garmin Oregon 300

Monday, April 27th, 2009

Following my initial coverage of the device I held onto the Garmin Oregon 300 for several months, one of which was spent in Mauritius, an absolutely perfect opportunity for putting it through its paces. It’s fair to say that, lack of official maps of Mauritius aside, the Orgeon 300 passed with flying colours and proved […]

Antec A/V Cooler

Monday, April 27th, 2009

When Antec aren’t throwing together stylish, silent or utterly absurd desktop computer cases they’re busy applying their quiet cooling know-how to anything else that could possibly require a cool breeze in order to prolong its lifespan. One such device, The Antec A/V Cooler, is apparently “the perfect device for cooling all your home audio/video equipment.” […]

Line 6 Pocket Pod Express

Monday, April 27th, 2009

At first glance the Line6 Pocket Pod Express is very cute, stylish, and shiny. Almost toy-like. It’s the smallest and most basic of the Pod lineup and is designed to be simple, easy to use and portable but it’s looks can be deceiving, for they hide quite an exceptional sounding and flexible piece of kit […]
