Logitech Harmony 1000i Universal Remote

AccessoriesWritten by Martin Regtien on .

Read more: Logitech Harmony 1000i Universal RemoteThe universal gripe about remote controls is that there are too many of them in the average household and they are too complicated to use.  We want one device to control all the others.
Is that a pipe dream?  Hardly.  Universal controls have been around for quite some time with Logitech one of the key players in this field.  Now they’ve brought out the ultimate control device: the Harmony 1000i Universal Remote.  Capable of subduing every household and entertainment device within 10 yards!  But how did I fare in subduing the Harmony?  Well, that’s an entirely different story...

 Read more: ZeroTherm BTF90 CPU CoolerWhen evaluating a CPU cooler, there are several things to look into.  In order of importance, the obvious factor is how well the product actually cools the CPU.  And then the next question to ask is how simple is it to install.  And then it would also be nice if the cooling solution looked good at the same time.  The ZeroTherm BTF90 is a product that provides an elegant-looking cooling solution that aims to nail down all of these key areas and excel in them at the same time.

When I took up the offer to write a review on the TVMini Express by Miglia Technology I didn't quite know what to expect.
Technologies develop fast and shift while we as consumers might just not be aware of it.

In hindsight it's all quite clear! I live in the Netherlands, where like most households we have cable television. When I saw a news item sometime last year (I think it was September 2006) I didn't take much notice of it: the normal airwave tv transmissions in our country would stop on December 11th, to be replaced by digital airwaves... I remember thinking something like: "So what?!" And forgot about it, until I received this tiny box over the mail a few weeks ago.

I must say I have learnt a lot over the past few days, and found a good excuse to buy myself a beautiful new little laptop. Now I enjoy clear tv pictures, and sparkling stereo sound with my headphones.

Of course I realize it's a bit over the top to buy a new MacBook only for reviewing this tiny digital marvel at the beginning of the 21st century. I see it as a lovely start on a journey to make it the center of all my digital communication: education, entertainment, keeping in touch with friends and family all over the world...

 Every once in awhile a gadget lands on your desk and hangs around, kicking up a storm. 

The aptly named The Tornado (but not for its destructive capabilities!), is an incredibly useful device for transferring data from one PC to the other. 

We have just finished a big Vista migration in which this device played a major role.  

Let me show you how life in the fast lane has now become a lot easier with hurricane-like transfer speeds and a pretty (inter)face.

 

Coby MP-C951 MP3 Player

When talking about MP3 Players, I usually put them into different categories typically based on their storage capacity.  The 1-2GB MP3 players are usually simple and nature and are meant to be on the go and be able to listen to a few songs here and there.  the 4-8GB MP3 players can store quite a bit more songs.  And the last categories are the ones that are 20GB and above that can pretty much handle your entire music collection.  These MP3 players vary in functionality.  Typically, the larger the capacity of the MP3 player, the more likely it is to have features such as viewing pictures or even videos.  The smaller capacity MP3 players are more for basic music playing and will be lucky to find a FM Tuner or voice recording capabilities.  The whole point is that MP3 players come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and colors.  It is best to determine what your needs are before looking at what is available in the market.  Are you the type of person who just wants to be able to listen to a few songs on your free time or do you want to be able to carry your entire music collection and be able to listen to your music all the time?

 

Newton Peripherals MoGo Bluetooth Notebook Mouse

Read more: Newton Peripherals MoGo Bluetooth Notebook MouseIt seems such a great contrast: not too long ago we reviewed one of the more sophisticated mice, the Logitech MX.  Today we look a very simple mouse: the MoGo Bluetooth Notebook Mouse from Newton Peripherals.  It may look simple but it is every bit as sophisticated and an extremely handy tool for laptop users.  The MoGo slots right into the PC card space which is normally empty on most notebooks.  That’s where it hides unobtrusively and where it gets charged.  How well does such a flat device work on a day-to-day basis?

 

Canovo Dual-TouchScreen Tablet/Notebook

Industry NewsWritten by Z-NetWORKS on .

Read more:  Canovo Dual-TouchScreen Tablet/NotebookYou might remember the very innovative Canovo Dual-TouchScreen Tablet/Notebook that was reported on recently.
Innovative because the keyboard has been replaced by another touchscreen! There are some obvious great advantages to this (and some minor problems as well). Think of truly being able to customise your keyboard for every task and having double the screen size when needed!
Well, we have some more info on this concept machine.
I spoke with Valerio Cometti, managing director of V12 Design in Milano, Italy.
This is what he said:

Here’s a smart idea coming to us from the world of jet fighters where Head-Up Displays have been standard for decades.
Now this basic technology is cheap enough to equip every car with it, not just a few luxury models.
GlobalTop Technology will be showcasing the GPS HUD Speed Meter at CeBIT which displays your speed and other navigational info, like direction, onto your car’s windscreen.
Not having to look down to check your gauges increases safety and the beauty of this device is that it can communicate via Bluetooth with your Smartphone or PDA navigation program.
We’ll be FedExed a HUD module in the next few weeks so that we can report on how it works but this is what we know so far:

Logitech MX Revolution Wireless Laser Mouse

Read more: Logitech MX Revolution Wireless Laser MouseI have seldom been so enthusiastic about having to review (yet) another mouse as when we received the Logitech MX Revolution Cordless Laser Mouse.  The MX Revolution might sound like marketing hype but it is a Revolution in more ways than one.  If you can see beyond the initial price shock this is arguably the best all-purpose mouse out there and we will show you why.
