Sandberg Micro WiFi USB Dongle Review

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

USB Wireless Adaptors are a curious product category with what would initially appear to be a rapidly dwindling market. It’s hard to find anything these days without WiFi built right in. But there’s an ever-growing demand for USB WiFi Dongles in an unlikely place; the world of homebrew hardware, Raspberry Pi’s, Beagle Boards and OpenPandora […]

From Snega2USB To Retrode 2: A Comprehensive History

Tuesday, January 31st, 2012

Playing vintage games, such as those from the steeped-in-nostalgia Master System, Megadrive, NES and SNES days, has always been somewhat of a legal minefield. ROM downloads, as abandoned as those old games may seem, are frowned upon both by the companies who once sold those games, and the enthusiast communities who still enjoy playing them. […]

Pandora Gamma Video

Tuesday, April 13th, 2010

EvilDragon demonstrates a great little app that lets you adjust the Gamma depending on what you’re running. Tone down those obnoxious SNES/Genesis era colours, or enhance your favourite classics. This is a mighty good quality video to boot.

Near Production Pandora Pictures And Video

Wednesday, December 9th, 2009

As the Pandora inches closer to production the dev team are appeasing the slathering appetites of Pandora pre-orderers the world over with pictures and video of what amounts to be the closest thing to a final Pandora we’re likely to see until mass production actually begins. The only differences: the gloss (instead of matte) finish […]

Mupen 64 On Open Pandora

Wednesday, October 28th, 2009

It’s not perfect, it’s not even really impressive at this stage, but it makes up for that with oodles and oodles of promise. Suffice to say, playable N64 on the Pandora is more or less a certainty and we’ve surely got the dual analogue to thank for making it an awful lot more comfortable than […]

Snega2usb Connect Your SNES And SEGA Genesis Carts As Mass Storage

Saturday, October 17th, 2009

Born on the same forums as the Pandora console, Snega2usb is a re-envisioned cartridge ripper that shows up as mass storage, making it an absolute synch to simply drag and drop ROMs right off your dusty old cartridges, or even play them right off the cart. It’s now available to pre-order and needs your support […]

Linux-based PSX Emulator On The Pandora

Thursday, August 6th, 2009

Craig has finally uploaded another video to YouTube. This time it shows off a Pandora PSX emulator in action, with the CPU clocked to 550mhz. The slight stuttering in sound should, with any luck, be ironed out with further optimizations. If all else fails, over-clocking should give us Pandora fanatics full speed PSX emulation in […]

MiFi 2352 Mobile WiFi Hotspot First Impressions

Tuesday, August 4th, 2009

I’m perplexed at the widespread, comparatively anyway, adoption of 3g USB dongles in lieu of far better and more flexible alternatives. So perplexed, in fact, that I decided to try one such alternative, the MiFi 2352 from Novatel Wireless, to see if there’s really a glaring flaw keeping it from the mass market, or if […]

Open Pandora Creeping Toward Production

Tuesday, June 30th, 2009

EvilDragon, the voice of sanity and reason from the Pandora Project, has posted yet another blog update to keep us slathering, news hungry pre-order customers happy.

Pandora Cube

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2009

Craigix has posted a very highly debated and controversial poll on the gp32x forums asking if a Pandora “Cube”, a headless, non portable version of the Pandora much like an HTPC or games console, would be a worthwhile pursuit. The topic is controversial because many people who have “invested” their time and money into the […]
