Roberts Revival RD50 Review Old Style New Sound

Tuesday, September 29th, 2009

Without a shadow of a doubt, the best looking radio from the Roberts camp is the Revival. Whether you dig classic styling or not, the good looks of the revival compared to the rest of the Roberts range are unquestionable. This may be indicative more of the garish, unrefined and bland designs of its cousins. […]

Ghostbusters – PS3 review

Monday, September 28th, 2009

Review by Johnus Maximus Believe it or not, the first Ghostbusters movie was released a little over twenty-five years ago. To coincide with the anniversary of its release in June this year, developers Terminal Reality and publishers Sony Computer Entertainment released Ghostbusters: The Video Game. Reprising the original cast members, this game follows on from […]

Norwich Apple Store Grand Opening

Saturday, September 26th, 2009

We set off at 9am expecting to see little buzz around an Apple store in our obscure corner of England, but it seems the culture, or just cult, of Apple Fandom is alive and well even in these far reaches of Norfolk. This day marks no more trips to the London based store, and no […]

Heavy Weapon invades PSN

Thursday, September 24th, 2009

Sony Online Entertainment is bringing Heavy Weapon to the PlayStation Network on 27th of August. This side-scrolling shooter is from Popcap Games, the minds behind the massively addicting Bejeweled, Peggle and Zuma. In it, you engage in thermo-nuclear war with your Atomic Tank. Play by yourself or with up to three friends, across nineteen levels […]

Three Mobile Broadband MiFi And Dongle

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2009

After acquiring a MiFi 2352 mobile router from Novatel I realised I’d need a more permanent data SIM with which to better test it. Not only this, however, but there seem to be many questions as to the compatibility of various SIM cards with the MiFi so I took this opportunity to test and report […]

Griffin iPhone Window Seat Car Mount

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2009

With TomTom now on the iPhone, amongst other navigational apps and, of course, your collection of music there have never been more excuses to look at car mounting solutions. There are many clip-on and screw on solutions for mounting gadgets but, by far, the most sensible way is a good old suction cup. The Griffin […]

Proporta Maya II Case For iPhone 3G, HTC Hero and more

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2009

The Maya II Case from Proporta is another feather in their well adorned cap and is, of course, a refinement of the original Maya style slip case of which I am a big fan. Little has changed with the Maya II in terms of fit and dimensions, however this new range has been considerably shrunk […]

be.ez LArobe Netbook Sleeve

Thursday, September 17th, 2009

My continued search for the best of the best netbook cases has seen my looking at reams of fairly average and all perfectly good cases. But nothing has been quite so obviously protective as this particular be.ez Netbook sleeve.

Antec Sonata Elite PC Case

Thursday, September 17th, 2009

Antec make shiny computer cases, there’s no denying that. I’m a particular fan of the P180 series, in their gunmetal-clad, fridge-freezer-like glory. The Antec Sonata Elite stays the course of Antec products, with a strong emphasis on being quiet whilst still having a high level of airflow for best cooling performance. It doesn’t do this […]

Nokia n810 £130 Bargain

Thursday, September 17th, 2009

It’s been a few years since i first looked at the n810. Back then I really wanted to pick up one of these fantastic tablets but i simply couldn’t justify the then steep £280 price tag. A lot has happened since then, namely such things as the iPhone 3g and HTC Touch phones which have […]
