Essential Android Apps

It's been a while since I upgraded to an Android phone and I thought I'd share some of the apps that I find invaluable. The downside I find with Android is there are fewer quality apps i.e. well designed user interface, few bugs and fulfils its goal well. And to top it off, they're usually buried beneath a huge range of rubbish and spam...


Arakawa Under The Bridge, Ichinomiya Family Heirloom Tie Review ::

I was bored of all the ties I keep seeing at the local stores so I thought I'd try to find something unique. When I watched Arakawa Under The Bridge I thought to myself, "I want that tie!" Sure enough, I found the Ichinomiya Family Heirloom Tie by Cospa at the AmiAmi store although it wasn't back in stock until December. For 4725 Yen, I was...


AMP3 Player’s Surprise Santa Sack 2010

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, Readers! Up to anything this year? Me, just some quality gaming time. As I mentioned before, I haven't really had any time to game since starting full time work so these days it takes me a lot longer to finish a single game which is why you don't see any reviews any more. However, it's not a bad thing...


Hand Warmer Gadgets ::

Happy New Year, readers! How's your part of the world been and how have you been spending the holidays? Snow's all melted here leaving lots of grit and a muddy looking ground. Not a pretty sight. Always wanted to try one of these reusable hand warmer gadgets considering how cold it can get in Scotland but, never really got round to picking...


AverTV Capture HD H727 Review

It's been a while since I bought a VGA cable so that I could play my Wii on a PC monitor. But now that I've bought myself a PS3, that cable wasn't going to work so I decided to go for an HD capture card - AverTV CaptureHD H727. This is about double the price of a dedicated converter and it also means you'll need to keep the PC turned on when playing...


Cowon iAudio 9 Review

Decided to pick up a new DAP because my old Meizu Mini Player's down to less than an hour's worth of battery life left per charge and, I really didn't want to use my mobile phone as a music player now that I know more about sound quality. This time I decided to go for the Cowon iAudio 9 since I've read Cowon's players produce the best sound...


Nokia 5800 Review, GPS Navigation and Internet on a Smartphone

Decided to replace my current mobile with a smartphone because I thought internet on the move and GPS would come in handy when scouting for new places for the odd photo stroll or good spots for practising my photography. However, I didn't want to pay the price of a laptop for say the HTCs or an iPhone so I decided to try the Nokia 5800...


Advanced MP3 Player's Surprise Santa Sack ::

Was browsing around looking for a new DAP because my current one's built-in battery is wearing down to only 2 hours. Then I found this - A "Santa Sack" filled with random goodies from Advanced MP3 Players' shop for £5 ( £7 including P&P). It's kind of like paying for a raffle ticket really and in this case, you have a chance to win a DAP, pair...


Hama Star 62 Tripod Review

Decided to pick up a tripod for night photography. Originally I was going to go for the Hama Star 61 but it seemed to be a little on the light side at 1.3kg so I went for the Hama Star 62 version instead which is at 1.5kg. It seems to be good value for money at its small price. It comes with a bag but no instructions. Shouldn't be too hard to work out...


DSLR Photography - 55-250mm Telephoto Lens, Hoods and Polariser

Uh oh, I'm starting to buy into Canon's DSLR system which means my wallet will soon be gone. Anyway, thought I'd share a little of the information I've learned as I read more about photography and experiment with more gear. The more experienced photographers amongst you can correct me if I'm wrong about anything ^^; DSLRs have all...
