T-Mobile finally rolling out Cupcake for G1 – first impressions

Fri, 29 May 2009 20:22:28 +0000

Today, I had a little surprise waiting for me when I turned on my T-Mobile G1 phone. Cupcake, vs. 1.5 of the Android firmware, had arrived and was installing! I couldn’t wait to try out the new features including the Android virtual keyboard, the automatic orientation feature and the new camcorder application. In addition, Cupcake [...]

Jobo PhotoGPS reviewed

Thu, 22 Jan 2009 01:28:11 +0000

We recently looked at (and liked) a GPS solution for the digital photographer in the form of the GiSTEQ PhotoTrackrPro. This time we have a slightly different approach to the problem of geo-locating photos in the form of the PhotoGPS from German company Jobo AG. Jobo have been making photographic accessories for a while but [...]

What the Google Phone giveth, it also takes away – the G1 review

Wed, 17 Dec 2008 20:27:12 +0000

When I first got the Google Phone (the G1 through T-Mobile) I was rather impressed with it. Fitting in the palm of my hand, it made me think that if the iPhone was “Mac,” then the G1 is definitely PC. A little wider, a tad boxier. Clunky by comparison, but at first glance, it’s just [...]

Adobe Creative Suite Master Collection CS4

Tue, 09 Dec 2008 19:36:57 +0000

There’s a point in software development where fewer new features or innovations arrive and developers begin to concentrate on tweaking, thereby making it more efficient, faster, and secure. There are no longer any real “fins” to add, and so software engineers dive under the hood and begin to tweak for performance. Such is the case [...]

GiSTEQ PhotoTrackr CD111

Wed, 26 Nov 2008 18:38:34 +0000

I’ve spent a few weeks with the GiSTEQ PhotoTrackr Pro – a GPS datalogger that’s aimed at the digital photographer. The idea is to use a GPS receiver to embed location information in photographs which can then be displayed on a map showing where they were taken. It’s not a new concept but it usually [...]

ASUS AiGuru S1 – The new videophone from Skype

Mon, 17 Nov 2008 18:59:27 +0000

Skype in association with ASUS have jost released the first Skype certified videophone, the ASUS AiGuru SV1 and we’ve got our hands on one of the first units. Functionality The ASUS AiGuru SV1 offers full Skype video conferencing facilities with the need of a PC. You can use it for Skype-to-Skype video and voice calls [...]

Canon 5d Mk II an expensive camera that puts it all on the screen

Sun, 02 Nov 2008 23:47:45 +0000

Up front, you need to know that the Canon 5D Mk II is expensive. VERY expensive. Professional expensive. At nearly $3,000 for just the body, it’s not even an early adapter camera and is more for the wedding photographer or professional who’s looking to push the boundaries of their artistic skills. But for the money, [...]

Kodak ESP 5 Review

Sun, 02 Nov 2008 23:21:37 +0000

For those with tight desk space in the office, often times an all in one printer solution is a practical answer to the problem. All in ones have been around for over a decade and usually the bad wrap was that if one of the features failed, you couldn’t use the entire unit. So, if [...]

Cibox C107 Digital Picture Frame Review

Thu, 30 Oct 2008 13:18:24 +0000

Does it feel like we never get round to downloading our newly snapped photos onto the computer or when we do, its months later and they always just stay there in a file never to be fully enjoyed? Cibox answers this problem with its easy to use 7” Digital Photo Frame C107 from Red Save, [...]

With the Kodak Zi6, the Pocket Camcorder war is over before it begins

Thu, 23 Oct 2008 21:00:53 +0000

As Nat mentioned a few days ago, the launch of the Flip Mino represents the next step in pocket camcorders that provides more on-board memory and decent quality video for the YouTube set. Easy to use, easy to upload. Very low cost. But I can tell you this, the Flip is dead. Killed and buried. [...]

Bushnell BackTrack, a fairly limited intro to GPS devices

Wed, 22 Oct 2008 22:33:02 +0000

Those who are seriously into GPS (the worldwide global positioning system which uses a series of satellites to show their position within a few yards) will probably be rather frustrated with the simple interactivity of the Bushnell BackPack, but for the beginner looking to understand how it works and how to navigate with it, it [...]

Launch of the Flip Mino

Mon, 20 Oct 2008 18:32:56 +0000

With the great success of the Flip Video Ultra selling more than 1 million units, the anticipated launch of the latest product from Flip Video is now just around the corner. Boasting to be up to 40% smaller than the Ultra, have faster image processing and an omni-directional mic, the Flip Mino also has a [...]

coosh headphones – Stays on and feels good

Fri, 03 Oct 2008 16:53:12 +0000

Coosh headphones and headsets boast comfort and wear-ability along with full-bodied sound so it was time to test them out. Contained in a reusable jar, the Coosh headset already looks promising and when removed, the soft flexible silicone earrings certainly strike you. The original silicone design is durable and is so light weight that I [...]

Sports Deluxe Game Player Review

Fri, 19 Sep 2008 20:29:45 +0000

There’s many reasons not to choose the Sports Deluxe Game Console over the Nintedo Wii, which it is similar to and there’s one main reason to choose it in ADDITION to the Wii. It makes a good traveling companion that you can trash or lose without worrying about having to replace the expensive gaming console [...]

AudioVox Home Base – Good idea that’s isn’t the sum of its parts

Fri, 19 Sep 2008 20:21:05 +0000

When we broke the news at Coolest Gadgets of the AudioVox Homebase at CES last year, I thought this was perhaps the coolest home kitchen idea to make family life easier. The idea was simple. A digital frame wrapped around an acrylic base which also serves as a whiteboard for notes and digital recorder for [...]

Beats By Dre

Mon, 25 Aug 2008 11:35:26 +0000

I’m a bit behind the curve on this one – Monster Cable teamed up with rapper Dr. Dre a while ago to introduce the "Beats by Dre" headphones. I’ve been giving them a bit of a workout over the past few months, so how do they stack up? First impressions In typical Monster fashion the [...]

Storm Jacket keeps your gear nice and dry.

Thu, 07 Aug 2008 05:33:01 +0000

There are many accessories for a camera that are considered must haves. The extra set of batteries, the backup memory card, a Skylight filter for protection, a tripod and even a long range flash for those zoom shots in low light. But if you told me that I’d make the Storm Jacket one of those [...]

LapDome gives your laptop a home away from home

Thu, 07 Aug 2008 05:14:52 +0000

Computing outside can be a real pain in the thumb drive. The ambient light blaring up against that LCD screen can make it darn hard to see. Sure, you can try using a bellows, or even some sort of screen shade, but as the light shifts throughout the day, sooner or later you’re going to [...]

BACTrack personal breathalyzer review

Thu, 31 Jul 2008 16:57:38 +0000

This was an interesting review to write – there are only a limited number of things you can do to review  a breathalyzer and I don’t have access to sophisticated test equipment. So when it came to the operational review I had to resort to the “manual” approach with the aid of Mr Jack Daniels. [...]

Ripping Vinyl is easy with Ion Turntables

Tue, 29 Jul 2008 17:38:23 +0000

The Ion Audio ITTUSB turntable let’s your mom and dad’s old vinyl albums to your PC and hear what they were groovin’ to during the Summer of Love. Now sure, this unit has been around for awhile, but Ion has turned things up to eleven with some very notable improvements. First off, they’ve added two [...]
