Review – MP300 Plus Multimedia Speaker System

The MP300 Plus by Edifier are actually a quite sophisticated and cost-effective audio solution, and deliver exceptionally high quality sound for their size and price. The mid/high spherical speakers have an impressive frequency range of 230 Hz to 20 kHz, offering crisp and clean mid-range and highs, and the sub-woofer handles 45Hz to 200 Hz, adding that great bass response often missing from small speakers. The sound is crisp and clear…

Even more AT&T fail- iPad with 3G more expensive

AT&T has announced new data plans for mobile Internet, claiming these plans will make it “more affordable to more people…”, but this is just not so.

The Little Digital Video Book – Review


When it comes to getting a digital video camera, you typically come about it in one of two ways. Either someone gave it to you as a gift, or you just bought it because your old one just broke. But in both cases, you probably obtained it just a few short days before you actually need to use it. Sadly, these cameras are a bit more complex than you typically expect, and you are not going to have those 3 to 4 weeks you need to figure out how it works. So what do you do?

Not A Review – Microsoft Office 2008


I was really looking forward to getting my hands on Office 2008 a year ago. It looked promising, an update to a major Macintosh software title four years in the making. I won’t pretend that I really wanted this software to be great. I always hope software for the Macintosh platform is great. And having read many online reviews, as well as David Cohen’s first-hand reports, on Microsoft Office 2007 for Windows, I had high hopes.

Two of these, both “USB sticks” recently caught my attention, so I felt it was time for a head to head comparison of two of these; the Pinnacle’s TV for Mac HD Stick, and Equinux’s TubeStick, both very small USB tuners for your Mac that let you watch TV right on your Macintosh.
