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

Written by Martin Regtien on . Posted in Accessories

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?

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.

Read more: Logitech QuickCam Ultra Vision Web CamWeb cams have been around for a long time, but many of them suffered from poor video and picture quality.  They had poor video quality because there was a high delay time between your actual movement and what was captured by the web cam;  poor picture quality because pictures never seemed to have the proper lighting and lacked clarity and resolution.  Logitech's QuickCam Ultra Vision web cam is a new product which addresses the issues of video and picture quality all bundled into a convenient simple package.

PhatWare’s New PhatPad 4.0…Note taking on a different level.

Read more: PhatWare’s New PhatPad 4.0…Note taking on a different level.In today’s Pocket PC world it is still the norm for one to purchase software to supplement or replace the default windows applications. This is still very true for the “Notes” software provided by Microsoft. This is where Phatpad comes in. This software “is an advanced notes organizer for Microsoft Windows Powered Pocket PCs. It allows you to draw pictures, jot text notes, or put a mixture of pictures and typed text on a virtual scratch pad”.

This is a quote from the manufacturer and as we all know, that has to be proven.

Read more: Zaon XRX Portable Collision Avoidance System (Flight Tested)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.

Read more: Qstarz TINY GPS Receiver with MP3 FunctionLooks good and SOUNDS good...

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. 

Flybook V33i with HSDPA from Dialogue Reviewed (Part I)

Written by Martin Regtien on . Posted in PC Hardware

Read more: Flybook V33i with HSDPA from Dialogue Reviewed (Part I)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?
