Are you the type of person who always asks what time it is? Do you have a clock on your desk even though you have a clock staring you right in the face every time you look at your computer? Do you always wonder why your office is so darn cold? Do you need a [...]
When I first saw these speakers I thought that they looked great, and the fact that they came with a remote was a bonus. Let’s see if they stand up to my standards in regards to audio quality and compatibility with my favorite OS, Linux. In the package was a sub woofer with two satellite speakers, [...]
Have you ever been sitting at brink of buying a new device and been totally perplexed as to what device to buy? I am sitting at this point. The ultra low cost machines are the ones that really excite me at this point. You can buy so much power for less than what I paid [...]
First, before we get into today’s review, I want to talk a little about Sleep Apnea. Sleep Apnea is when you stop breathing while you sleep. The worst part of Sleep Apnea is a lot of people who have it don’t even know it. Symptoms of sleep apnea can include: Loud snoring. Waking up gasping [...]
Back in the day, about 20 years ago when I was in Boy Scouts, options for a lightweight lantern were rare; you either took along a big fluorescent lantern or a propane lantern. Lanterns are better than flashlights because they provide a circle of light around your entire work area instead of just one spot. [...]

[Ed. note: Just for fun - leave a count in the comments section of how many times the word "strap" appears in this review, and I will choose a random winner (of an equally random prize) from the correct entries on April 3rd.

Have you ever needed to give your cell phone a little bit of juice to get through a call? Were you near a socket when you needed to do it? If not, then you might wish that you had carried the USB AAA Battery Charger with Torch from USB Fever with you. It’s now become [...]
When I came across ZaReason, I was impressed. Selling machines that have Linux installed by default isn’t new, and many companies support only Linux now, but it’s ZaReason’s service and the communication I received all during the review process that impressed me the most. ZaReason cares about their customers and always puts them first, even [...]
A lot has been said this week about Walmart pulling the Everex gPC and Cloudbook from their stores. Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols has a interesting article on desktoplinux.com regarding his views. What it boils down to is the people who typically shop at WalMart are probably not even capable of determining what OS their computer is [...]
Ever wish you had a mouse with you to use in your hotel room with your laptop, but never took one because of the bulk? This may just be the mouse for you. Measuring in at 1.2 cm or for those of us in the US, 0.4 inches, it’s very thin. Almost too thin.
For SO long I have been looking for a MP3 Player without wires. Sure, everyone wishes Apple did it (I don’t). However, Best Buy, yes you heard me right, Best Buy has come out with a store brand MP3/Video Player that supports Bluetooth A2DP Stereo Headphones! Also, this MP3 Player is a Open Source fanatics [...]
Now alot of people will ask, what’s so different about Linux that makes it better then Windows? Well, alot of things really, but I think the best thing is the community.

I received the UltraLapSR today and here’s the unboxing! It took a while to get here, but that’s because Zareason does the right thing and thinks of the customer first! Walk with me as I unbox this beauty! Building Linux hardware so you don’t have to. I like that!
We’ve all seen the mini PCs like Lenovo’s Thinkcenter Desktops and Dell’s small desktops. We’ve also seen other PCs about the size of a external CD rom. Now, we have one that’s about half that size. VIA had brought out the Artigo Builders Kit. The motherboard on the Artigo is about the size of a [...]
