John Richards, Director of the Windows Live Platform, has announced that “Today Microsoft is announcing some significant developments to the Windows Live platform that demonstrate Microsoft’s commitment to data portability and giving users a choice of how to use and control their information.” Evidently the first step is to make it easier to add all [...]
You’ll have to forgive me, as I was feeling too lazy to burn and then mail thousands of CDs out today. But I thought you all might like to listen to some of my favorite writing music, made possible by Muxtape. The cool thing about this is that the playlist might not necessarily stay static [...]
Trust me, I’m really trying my best to quit hauling around so many gadgets in my backpack. A 13” MacBook, power cable, mouse, 2 pens, iPod, iMuffs wireless headphone, JawBone headset, a smartphone of the week, Tekkeon battery charger, various cables, business cards and a legal pad are my bare minimums. Oops! I forgot the [...]
The Easter holiday delayed the delivery by a few days, but never mind, my new unlocked BlackJack II is here! I’ve had it for less than 12hrs but I wanted to post my first impressions of the device. • Looks great. The glossy black body is more stylish and “hip” than the original BlackJack. [...]
I’ve been shopping for a used car. I know exactly what I want. The problem is getting it. The vehicle I want isn’t common in my area, so I turned to the Internet to find one. What’s I’m finding, however, is that outside of buying via ebay, the shopping experience varies widely.

I’ve always been a big stickler for keeping my gadgets protected. I’m pretty proud of my iPods being fingerprint free for over a year now in its protective casings by DLO and OtterBox. With the investment in laptops, it’s a wonder why people don’t use a lapcase case, especially with all of the choices available [...]
DLO Video Shell is a useful case that doubles as an Ipod Nano stand.
Well, even though my sample Skooba Skreener didn’t come before my business trip last November, it did come in time for the various holiday nonsense, so I was able to give it a good workout.
I am continually surprised at the lack of external portable speaker gizmos for the iPhone. Plenty of them out there for the various iPods, of course, but the iPhone? There’s kind of a shortage. DLO thinks they have the answer with their new portable iPhone speakers.
I saw a pretty ugly crash scene a few days ago in front of my building. A truck had ploughed into the front of a flat across the road, and there was a lot of police and emergency crew milling about. Thankfully no one was hurt, but when my boyfriend asked for my camera to [...]
Of all the gadgets which I have ever reviewed, I think that the Litter-Robot would definitely win the title of most offbeat, but it was well worth doing. In late January, I unboxed the Litter-Robot, set it up, and then sat back to see whether Avah would accept this “spaceship” as her litter box. It [...]
I’m a big fan of ebooks. Unfortunately, they haven’t really lived up to their potential yet. As a fan – I’ve been watching the release of the Kindle closely. In some ways, it feels like it has to succeed if ebooks have any chance of becoming more than a niche market. I really want to [...]
The Nokia N95 8 GB model has started arriving in the United States. Several legitimate sites such as Dell or Amazon.com have the phone for about $ 640 – $750. How do you resist when you find a Nokia N95 8GB auction for a little over $400? Is the phone you just bought at auction [...]
By that I mean are you buying it just to load Windows on it? After showing my dad the review unit I have he was completely sold, and today upgraded from his old Dell XPS M1210 to a brand new 1.6Ghz MacBook Air. First thing I did to it for him was strip Mac [...]
