Forza 3 at Microsoft’s Christmas In July

Thursday, July 30th, 2009

I’m not a big fan of driving simulations. Why? Because I’m abysmal at them. My ability to successfully navigate a track is inversely proportional to the realism of the driving simulator I’m playing. Once you get to the classic Ridge Racer end of the spectrum, I can drift ’round corners like a pro. But challenge […]

Sky HD And Sky Multiroom Reviewed

Saturday, July 25th, 2009

When it comes to HD content delivery, we’re able to choose between an expanding array of options from Blu-Ray Rental via a service like LoveFilm, to HD downloads through Xbox Live, to broadcast HD television. I’ve tried downloads, LoveFilm and even buying the odd Blu-Ray DVD in an effort to take advantage of my 1080p […]

NextBase Click 7 In-Car DVD Player

Saturday, July 25th, 2009

I was perusing Halfords a couple of days ago, admiring pink steering wheel covers and seat covers emblazoned with teddy bears in a thoroughly manly fashion, when the in-car DVD Player display caught my eye. Dominating over half of the display was the new NextBase Click & Go range. The range consists of a 7″ […]

Port Netbag for 10″ Netbooks

Saturday, July 25th, 2009

In an continuing mission (sorry!) to bring you the skinny on the best netbook accessories I’ve begun to broaden my horizons past Proporta, incorporating products from GearZap.com who resell a variety of brands (incidentally including Proporta). My first 10″ Netbook Case through from them was the Cool Bannanas Hard Cover netbook case, which I added […]

My hands on preview of Halo 3: ODST

Friday, July 24th, 2009

On Monday the 20th of July I was invited to join representatives of Europe’s gaming press at London’s Century Club, to get a sneak peek at the forthcoming Halo 3: ODST from Bungie and Microsoft Game Studios. With a demonstration of the campaign mode from Bungie’s top multiplayer developer Lars Bakken and a hands-on session […]

Dynasty Warriors 6 Empires – Xbox 360/PS3

Thursday, July 23rd, 2009

It’s been a while since the release of Dynasty Warriors 6, so it was inevitable that the release of this spin-off title would happen. Developed by Omega Force and published by Koei, it is available now for both PS3 and Xbox 360. Combining the hack’n’slash gameplay of the Warriors series with the strategy elements of […]

Dingoo Linux Improvements

Friday, July 17th, 2009

Dingoo Linux is still very much in its growing phases, Booboo has a current work in progress kernel that communicates via Ethernet over USB. A massive improvement for interacting with your Dingoo A320, deploying content, using Telnet and, the holy grail, FTP. Being able to get files onto a running Dingoo Linux via FTP over […]

Craig Looks At The Smart T5

Saturday, July 11th, 2009

Craig’s latest YouTube videos show clear signs that he’s finally cracked under the pressure of the Pandora project… okay, I kid. They are actually quite entertaining, quite bold and quite original and this latest video even has a few brief shots of the Pandora toward the end. The reason there’s no Pandora video yet? Craig […]

EcoNav Sat Nav Could Save You Fuel

Friday, July 10th, 2009

It’s always baffled me why so many, many products are pushed with the claim of being “green.” I’ll be honest, I don’t care about the environment, I have faith in the technological prowess of man, and thoroughly believe that no effort I go to in reducing my own “carboon footprint” will really count for anything. […]

iPhone 3G FlexiShield Skin

Wednesday, July 8th, 2009

I’ve never been a huge fan of *bling*, but there’s something kind-of appealing about the diamond patterned back of the transparent iPhone 3G FlexiShield Skin. The unique pattern of diamond-shaped lenses makes for an eye catching case back to the extent that it must be the first iPhone 3G silicone case that I’ve not torn […]
