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?
I've spent about 3 months with arguably the best-connected ultra-portable notebook in the world, most of that time on the road and all of the time the Flybook being the only computer I worked with. How did that go? Have my enthusiastic first impressions (see our July 21 review) mellowed or did I discover the Flybook is for keeps? Follow me as I put my traveling companion to work.
As an avid gamer for many years now, I have witnessed and played with all kinds of controllers for the PC as well as different consoles. I continue to use one of my favorite game pads, Microsoft's SideWinder, which I bought many years ago. This game pad still serves me well in today's games such as Need For Speed Underground as well as classic emulated arcade games. To this day, I still am slightly disappointed with many of the game pads out in the market today. They simply fail because they don't have enough features or most important of all, they fail functionally. For instance, this includes having the right number of buttons as well as where they are placed. A very important concept to a consumer is the durability of the controller. I have seen the directional pad of many controllers break or wear out over a period of time. In addition, I even saw some controllers whose directional pads or buttons simply didn't work well. Today, I will be reviewing Logitech's RumblePad 2. This game pad has extra features that will appeal to most consumers. It has built-in vibration for games and it is cordless as well. These features are great and all, but does this game pad pass the test when it comes to basic functionality and design?
