Zero Tension Mouse

Read more: Zero Tension MouseRelief for RSI Sufferers
We generally don't review mice as they are about as utilitarian as a USB stick. But when you suffer from RSI or carpal tunnel syndrome your interest in these rodents is elevated to a much higher level.

The Zero Tension Mouse piqued my interest for promising to relieve the rather painful sensation of nervous tenseness in my right hand. The ZTM is not the prettiest of its species and it certainly was one of the hardest to get used to.  As they say “no pain, no gain” so I struggled with the ZTM for a number of weeks.  Was it all worth it?

The Rotasole: Revolutionary Turning Sport Shoe

Read more: The Rotasole: Revolutionary Turning Sport ShoeI just watched the latest episode of Beyond Tomorrow, the Australian technology show, which featured the Rotasole. This innovative sport shoe will be able to massively reduce the number of sports injuries from twisting and turning one's feet in sports like basketball or tennis. The secret of the Rotasole is in the rotating disk in the middle of the sole which turns as you turn. This can minimise the stress on your ankle by some 30%. The Rotasole is already available.

Waking up is an ordeal and a challenge for most people. Being woken up before your body is ready can be a real trauma, particularly when using alarm clocks.  There must be a better way…

My choice?  A soft kiss on the forehead from my wife or a gentle reminder from the aXbo Sleep Phase Alarm Clock. Well, that's not really a choice, eh, but the aXbo has the advantage of knowing when it is the best time for my body to wake up.

This is how it works.

 

Sapphire ATI Radeon X800 GTO (AGP) - Reviewed

PC HardwareWritten by Ronald on .

Read more: Sapphire ATI Radeon X800 GTO (AGP) - ReviewedSince the release of the ATI's next generation X1000 series, ATI's graphics cards have brought higher and higher performance...more pipelines, higher clock speeds, etc.  The enthusiasm for ATI's latest cards doesn't necessarily mean that the older X100 series cards are left in the dust.  In fact, it means more affordable lower prices for the older generation.

Let's face it, not everyone can keep up with technology always.  I've had my custom computer built less than 3 years ago and the switch from the AGP interface to PCI-Express passed so quickly that it makes my system seem old already.  The good news is that there are still AGP versions of graphics cards available.

Today, I will be reviewing the Sapphire ATI Radeon X800 GTO.  This product emphasizes overclocking on a budget.  If you are still stuck with the older AGP interface and love to overclock, this card may be for you.

Read more: e Pause: eco-friendly bed with iPod Dock and Bose SystemRemember the old beds with built-in radio/alarm clock?

Forget that: the Pause by Design Mobel is nothing like that.

 

Avant-garde to the max, not just by design or by the inclusion of an iPod dock, but particularly by the use of native New Zealand timber.

 

The way the rimu timber is grown and harvested will make all Friends of the Forest proud and for AUD6000 you can sleep peacefully, knowing that your bank manager is the only one really worried…

SLI Notebook on the Horizon?

A few week ago we published a news article about developments towards a Nvidia GeForce Go 7800GTX SLi Notebook. Today, we found this very interesting article at hardwarezone about MSI's implementation of SLI technology with MXM modules or better known as NVIDIA's GeForce GO Series. As you can see in the pictures below, MSI demonstrated this dual MXM prototype at CES in a desktop configuration but this development also shows how close we are to seeing this implemented in SLI notebooks:

Read more: Harman Kardon SoundSticks IISince I enjoy sound, you probably have noticed the many speaker reviews on the site.  I'm always interested in the unique designs of speakers and of course in search for better sound.  For PC users, the typical companies that come to mind when talking about multimedia speakers are Logitech, Creative, Altec Lansing, etc. Today, I present to you a speaker set that should not be left out: it is the Harman Kardon SoundSticks II.
