Written by Martin Regtien on . Posted in Miscellaneous

Read more: The EGO Multi-Tool Reviews: Part 1 – Power Head and Pole SawWe reviewed the EGO Self Propelled Mower last year and were so impressed with the design, built quality, power and user friendliness that we gave it our Editor’s Choice Award.

Do these accolades apply to the rest of the EGO garden tools?

We were keen to find out and today we’re looking at the Multi-Tool range and specifically at the Pole Saw attachment.

In Part 2 we’ll cover a couple of other attachments for the Multi-Tool: the Brushcutter and the Whipper Snipper (or Line Trimmer).

So come along and find out how we fared.

Logitech StreamCam - HD content creation powerhouse

Read more: Logitech StreamCam - HD content creation powerhouseIn what is probably a stroke of genius, the Logitech StreamCam was launched in the midst of the COVID-19 isolation here in Australia. Given we were all working from home and bogged down in endless meetings over Zoom, Skype, WebEx, you name it.

Logitech pitches the StreamCam to streamers, with a focus on image quality and dual front-facing microphones. DRN is going to take it for a test drive, let's hope my mug does not crack the lens since I have not had a haircut or a shave since end of February. I have never been the looker in the family, but right now I resemble more so an Asian woolly mammoth or the Dulux mascot.

Give me three things you don’t like about your inkjet printer.
I don’t care what make and model you have but most folks will come up with something like this:

The price of the ink, the mess of cartridge changes or running out of ink at the most inopportune moments and, generally, the high cost of printing.

Those things always made my shortlist in the past few decades that I’ve been using inkjet printers.

Let me tell you how the Epson WorkForce ET-4750 EcoTank revolutionised my printing.

Read more: WD_Black P10 Game Drive - Game Faster, Game SmarterFor this review of the WD_Black P10 Game Drive, we welcome another new face to the team. Peter Bower is a mixed bag of tricks. In former lives, he was a professional photographer and videographer, published writer, English academic, award winning poet, hater of soup, website manager, social media guy, ginger, and creature of the night. He is the founder and former editor-in-chief of SWAMP and VoTogs. He is still a ginger and now finds himself a government employee. When he’s not working, he is a semi-serious gamer and lover of live music, bad movies and action novels. His website is well out-of-date, as is his Facebook. But you can say hello to him on Twitter @OeterB.

So how did we fare in our evaluations?

Hard on the heels of our most recent review of Dr Horn’s Shadowland book – a thoroughly documented volume on who really is running (and ruining!) the United States of America – here is a book that - among other things - describes NASA’s role in a cover-up of what’s heading our way.

What is the 2000 year old Wormwood prophecy?

Is it relevant for us today, living in this generation?

And, if so, can we prepare for this catastrophic event?
