Epocware Handy Tools Pro and Calendar Reviewed

Written by Martin Regtien on . Posted in Software

Read more: Epocware Handy Tools Pro and Calendar ReviewedIn April I got a new N95, Nokia’s flagship cell phone.  As far as mobiles go, it really is a nifty piece of kit running with lots and lots of potential. One of the reasons I say potential is because even though the hardware and its Symbian OS (3rd edition) is top of the line; it’s the ease of access to information and applications that makes the hardware truly handy. So speaking of handy, let’s have a look at very useful suite of apps Epocware prepared earlier, aptly named: Handy Tools Pro. Handy Tools Pro is a suite made up of Epocware’s Handy TaskMan, Handy Weather, Handy Clock, Handy Converter, Handy Expense, Handy Safe, Handy Keylock, and Zip Manager.

Apricorn Aegis Portable Hard Drive - Reviewed

Read more: Apricorn Aegis Portable Hard Drive - ReviewedA portable USB flash drive is one of those tools that is nearly essential to be able to carry your documents and files with you.  While USB flash drives have no moving parts, they are very limited in capacity.  They come in sizes as large as 1GB, 4GB, and I know it's possible there may even be an 8GB on the market somewhere.  Unfortunately, some people would like to be able to carry more files or larger files such as their music collection, videos, or even backup images of their computer.  In that case, it is practical to consider a portable external hard drive.  I will be taking a look at Apricorn's latest Aegis portable external hard drive.

Leadertone Pocket Chauffeur GPS6000 PND - Reviewed

Read more: Leadertone Pocket Chauffeur GPS6000 PND - ReviewedLeadertone is not a name you’d see often in the Western world. But their products may be familiar even though they can be unbranded.

Such is the case with the Personal Navigation Device that is suction-cupped to my windshield at the moment.  It’s a smart-looking compact PND simply labelled GPS.

Only the box gives it the honorific: Pocket Chauffeur. This is not to be confused with the Pocket Chauffeur you’ll find on Acer’s N35.

Techrific Australia supplied the unit which is priced at AUD399.

We are quite impressed with this handy all-in-one device and here are the reasons why.

KEYBOARDING CONUNDRUM

 

In my experience, keyboards are probably the most overlooked piece of essential computing equipment.  For years I have been putting together computers and for years I have purchased keyboards on the cheap.  After all, a good video card is more important than a decent set of keys to bash, isn't it?

 

Wireless Computing's RF-220 Wireless Keyboard begs to differ.

 One of the greatest needs for any human being is access to good drinking water. Without clean water a host of waterborne diseases can quickly ruin one’s day if not one’s life.

Here’s an Australian solution which addresses the problem of contaminated water, particularly for travellers. This Water Filter Drinking Straw is like taking some 1300 bottles of clean drinking water with you on your journeys.

Without the weight and the cost of them.

  

And there’s another, huge, side benefit to the iStraw as well. Here’s how it works.
