Samsung Super WriteMaster Slim External DVD Writer – Review
The first question you have to ask yourself is, if you already own a DVD burner in your Mac (and chances are you do) do you need an external USB model? If so, then the Super WriteMaster Slim External DVD Writer from Samsung is a good choice.

BurgerTime Deluxe – Review

For this review, I cheated. I didn’t actually play LEGO Batman on the Mac all the way through. But before you form a mob to throw Apples at me in the nearest Apple Orchard, know that I have actually played this game to 100% completion. A contradiction? Not at all. My family has been playing Lego Batman for months on the Playstation 3. In fact, this is the first video game in years that my wife actually plays when I’m not even in the room. That in itself is a super-rare occasion. But that should also tell you something about both the quality of LEGO Batman and its fun factor.
