Written by Martin Regtien on . Posted in Miscellaneous

Read more: The Nephilim Imperatives - Book ReviewHave you ever wondered what's behind UFOs?  Or about such sightings as Bigfoot or Yetis?

Does Area 51 pique your interest?

 

The other week a most unusual book landed on my desk called The Nephilim Imperatives, by Terry James.

This book purports to give a reason behind these sightings and it comes from a perspective that you may not have expected.

 

It gives credence to the existence of UFO phenomena and is an interesting read.

Belkin N1 Vision Wireless Router Review

Written by Paul Moons on . Posted in Miscellaneous

Read more: Belkin N1 Vision Wireless Router ReviewLet's not pretend otherwise: Routers are normally pretty boring devices. The best routers tend to quietly do their job in anonymity amongst the Rat king of cables hidden away from view.

If you do happen to intentionally glance at your router, it usually coincides with the words, Why are you not working? Expletives optional.

The Belkin N1 Vision takes this truth and attempts to turns it on its head. Here is a router that wants to be looked at.

 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.

Waking up is an ordeal and a challenge for most people. Being woken up before your body is ready can be a real trauma, particularly when using alarm clocks.  There must be a better way…

My choice?  A soft kiss on the forehead from my wife or a gentle reminder from the aXbo Sleep Phase Alarm Clock. Well, that's not really a choice, eh, but the aXbo has the advantage of knowing when it is the best time for my body to wake up.

This is how it works.

Samsung 910MP LCD Display

Written by Ronald on . Posted in Miscellaneous

Read more: Samsung 910MP LCD DisplayLCD displays for the computer have come to the point where they are more affordable and are starting to become more common.  Computer manufacturers now provide consumers with the option of choosing a CRT monitor or upgrading to an LCD display.  When comparing LCD displays with CRT monitors, each have their unique features that tend to a user's preference.  LCD displays are much thinner, lighter, and definitely more portable than a CRT monitor.  CRT monitors on the other hand are much heavier, but are much cheaper.

  

 

Today, I will be reviewing the Samsung 910MP.  Unlike most other LCD monitors, this is a multifunction monitor.  Other than solely being an LCD monitor, this monitor has TV tuning capabilities so you can watch TV on it also without the need of an extra internal or external card or device.  The 910MP manages to have the same Samsung LCD quality while providing the versatility of watching TV on the same monitor while saving overall desk space.  Couple this with an 8ms pixel response time and you've got a fully-featured LCD monitor that can do gaming as well.
 
The LCD monitor came in an expected cardboard box with a handle.  When opening the box on the side, everything was neatly packaged and well protected by the large layers of foam.  The LCD layer lies in between the two foam layers.  The included extra items are packaged on the sides of the box.
