Watching Your Six Never Was Easier…We have reviewed a number of Portable Collision Avoidance Systems (PCAS) from Zaon. We had the opportunity to flight test their latest model in traffic detection systems which not only includes information on relative altitude and range but also in which direction to look for traffic, in other words quadrant bearing. The ZaonFlight XRX is a huge improvement over their previous top model and well worth the investment in making your skies safer. Have a look at why we think so.
Our quest for ever smaller GPS receivers has taken us today to the Qstarz BT-Q920 with a really tiny footprint. However, the Qstarz BT-Q920 GPS Receiver also comes with an interesting addition which brings back its proportions to a normal size.
I'm talking about the FM transmitter which allows you to play music through your car stereo system. Is this a case of useful integration or does it fall in the category BWC -- Because We Can?
Let's take the show on the road.
And by the way, the first pictures were shown on our sister site PocketPCReviews.net, where we first announced this little gem to the world.
There are few notebooks that have been head turners from the moment they were launched. The Sony Vaio is one of them and the Flybook from Dialogue another. It's been about two-and-a-half years ago when we first reviewed the original Flybook ultra-portable notebook.
At this very moment the latest incarnation, the Flybook V33i, is glamming up our desk, sporting a deep Ferrari-red exterior, making its diminutive size even more delectable...
Now that the Flybook has attained almost cult status, the question remains: is our first love for this highly connected machine still there?
Many of the speaker reviews for this site have been multimedia speakers meant for a desktop computer. This time, we're going to be looking at a different class of speakers which are meant for a slightly different purpose. The Audioengine 5 is a speaker system meant for listening to music from an iPod music player. In this review, we will examine how well the speakers accommodate the use of the iPod with these speakers. And of course, we will examine the most basic concept in a speaker review...how well they sound.
The Plane Quiet NC-7 is a pair of noise-canceling headphones that offer the convenience of being able to take them wherever you go. When evaluating noise-canceling headphones, we usually examine two main things: how well the noise-cancellation feature works and whether the headphones have good sound with the noise-cancellation feature on or off. If the product can nail these two down, then we've good a product.
With the abundant number of flashlights available on the market, sometimes randomly grabbing one off the shelf is good enough for most people. On the other hand, there are those that are a bit more picky and want the flashlight that is brighter, lasts longer, and is unique. In this category, we're not talking about the cheap $10-20 dollar ones. Usually the cost for these kinds of flashlights is a bit more expensive...usually $50 and above. Today, I had the chance to look at the Lumaray FL6 flashlight. It is a unique flashlight that does more than just shining light. Let's find out in the review.
Want to be able to type faster than the best secretary? With unerring accuracy? Have a look at the latest version of Dragon NaturallySpeaking, arguably the best speech recognition software around. This particular edition that we are reviewing today is called Preferred Mobile and includes a digital Philips VoiceTracer recorder.
Cameras are rapidly increasing in the number of Megapixels these days. In fact, we have just started seeing compact consumer cameras capable of taking pictures of up to 10 Megapixels! Whether those cameras take quality pictures is another story to tell. In general, with an increasing Megapixel count, that means you're working with larger pictures. And with larger pictures, that's definitely going to mean larger file sizes. The moment you press that snapshot button, the camera needs to store that large 10 Megabyte file (just an example) as quickly as possible into its memory. This example leads us into the product we will be taking a look at: the Kingston 133X Compact Flash (CF) memory card.
An interesting form factor is the one that looks like a credit card, only a tad thicker.2010-01-1
The clever thing about this one is that the USB connector is totally flush with the card and makes for a compact unit.
Brando is marketing these 1 GB cards in a variety of prints. This includes even a picture of the Mona Lisa!
Have a look at what this is all about.
Great Battery Life and Super Sensitive
However, the Qstarz BT-Q810 was about as small a GPS receiver as I have ever seen and promised an astonishing 25 hours of autonomy.
Could this little number be as good as the best SiRFstarIII unit out there?
