Switching to Three Australia for my cell phone service was an excellent decision. I get excellent call rates, good coverage, fast and cheap internet (thanks to UMTS), and as an added bonus I get a free IMAP email account with which I can receive unlimited emails (with attachments), and for $3 send unlimited emails (also with attachments) as well, regardlessRead more
Mac OS X deals with file moving and copying similarly to Windows. When you drag files/folders between folders on the same disk, they are moved, and when you drag them between different disks they are copied. On Mac OS X it is a little bit harder to change the default behaviour when you are dragging and dropping files. On WindowsRead more
I am trying to remember the last time that I�reviewed a Vaja case and ended up less than pleased.
After all, it would add so much to my coolness factor if I didn’t get excited every time they sent me a new case to try -�if I could remain aloof, if I didn’t stick my nose against the
What a long way�we have come, fire, torches, oil lanterns, and then the common everyday flashlights we all use. The flashlight to me is a neat human invention, a battery source running a bulb all mounted inside a portable casing so that you would never have to be stuck in the dark. The 21st century sure has brought us lotsRead more
I know the Ugobe Pleo Dinosaur isn’t new to those that follow robotic pet news, but I had conveniently forgotten about what may turn out to be the most cuddly and obtainable robot to date – until I read an article in Wired on the plane ride home from CES.
Clive Thompson managed to grip my attention with one of
[Ed. note: This is the follow up to Part One of my review on the HP Printing Mailbox and Presto Service, which can be read here.]
Shortly after Christmas, the large box containing the HP Printing Mailbox made its way from Texas to Florida. Once it had shown up at Papa’s, his step-son Rand unpacked it, unwrapped it, and
I have to�say that the Spectec SDW-820 SDIO WiFi Card is not a product I would have ever needed, if Palm hadn’t decided to deny WiFi to to its legion of WM5 Treo users. I can hear some of you asking it now…”Why would anyone with an all-you-can-eat data plan need WiFi?”
Well, because sometimes you do.
My purpose here is not so much a review, but some thoughts and observations on what I really like about my new 4215 and what I don’t like. These are the things that as a new Tablet PC owner jumped out at me right away.
I would like to begin by explaining how I came to purchase the Fujitsu 4215
Many of the cheaper DVD players these days include inputs on the front panel for connecting microphones for karaoke. More expensive DVD players however typically don�t include such functionality, and that�s where a company called IXT Systems has stepped in to bridge the gap. They have produced a microphone designed to integrate with any DVD Player to turn it intoRead more
Jenneth over at Girls Gone Mobile has published an excellent and comprehensive tutorial detailing the power of Windows Media Player 10 for Windows Mobile 5, with instructions on how to get media onto your Windows Mobile device, skin it to suit your needs, better control it through hardware buttons, share music with others over Bluetooth (a bit more powerfulRead more

If you are like me, used to bringing your laptop PC to your bed and typing all night long in a dark room, you may need
I am so excited! Almost doing a happy dance! Okay, I am doing a happy dance! But I am not even packed yet…ack! After I finish this post I will, seriously!
Monday morning I’ll be boarding the first plane to Las Vegas to attend CES. Right after I throw my bags in the room and freshen up, I’ll be offRead more
Soon after I signed Gear Diary up for Google’s AdSense, I noticed a new advertisement for something called Art Dealer. I had already weeded out the totally irrelevant ads for Kangol hats, heart-shaped boxes of chocolate, a zen garden, and lingerie (don’t ask!), and I was tempted to weed out this ad, too. But instead I made note ofRead more
After my disappointing experience with the Cowon A2 –and yup, I did return it–but still determined to see if a personal media player (PMP) can be a good thing to have around, I decided to give the Creative Zen Vision W a try (I’m still on the waiting).
Once again, the basic specs of the device are intriguing:

Are you still holding out for your perfect laptop bag? Perhaps you’ve been looking for one that isn’t too fussy, one that has plenty of large storage compartments, one that is made of strong durable materials, that uses a minimum of Velcro, one that has many pockets of all sizes…and most importantly, one that doesn’t cost an arm and aRead more
In August this year I went 3G. I moved over to Three, a 3G-only carrier here in Australia that provides the best prices on calls, caps, data rates and other services. I didn�t want to be locked into any contracts, so I bought both the SIM (or in this case, USIM) and phone outright. I got the Sony EricssonRead more
