Thursday, April 29th, 2010

Well I’ve finally bitten the bullet and gone and bought myself a smart phone, my hand was somewhat forced by my previous handset crashing every couple of hours. It probably didn’t help that I dropped it down the loo once too! Anyway, The long and the short of it is that I took the plunge […]

Friday, April 23rd, 2010

Solar power seems to be working its way into many simple, common devices. Some of the simplest are the best, with the SolarDAB being a good example. Radio lends itself well to this sort of power, and it seems that car kits do too. The Clip and Talk Solar Powered Bluetooth Car Kit is a […]

I may be missing the point. But Splinter Cell: Conviction is rubbish. It has a serious identity crises, and is absurdly unforgiving.

Sony SRS DB500 2.1 Speakers Review

Sunday, April 11th, 2010

As much as they try to pretend otherwise with their Hi-Fi audio appearance the Sony SRS DB500 are PC speakers through and through or, at a pinch, a ridiculously over the top outlet for the tunes on your portable audio player. They’re great for gaming, but you will do them a better justice pumping out […]
