Read more: Swann Communications Digital Private Eye - ReviewedThe need for security – often in the form of covert surveillance – is rapidly increasing in our modern world.

Our homes and businesses follow the trend set by governments and law enforcement agencies.

I was looking around for an unobtrusive recording device that would have motion activation and take reasonable good pictures at set intervals.
I think I've found exactly that when I came across the Swann Communications Digital Private Eye. And as a bonus it also functions as a webcam.
Let's see what it is all about.

 

Belgium, the Movie - a Short Review

Written by Ashleigh on . Posted in Miscellaneous

Read more: Belgium, the Movie - a Short ReviewIf there is one thing that fascinates me it's flying low and slow and taking in the scenery below. 

I am lucky that I can do that in the course of my work as an aerial photographer but there are plenty of places that I haven't been to and love to see from an aerial perspective. 

Belgium is not one of those places.  I have flown over this small country many times when living in Holland but it is one thing to just fly over it in the course of your work than to be able to sit back in your lounge chair, to relax and let the whole scenery unfold before you on a high-definition screen.  It is the same difference as cooking your own meal or going to a top-notch restaurant for a gourmet dinner.
Belgium, the Movie, subtitled Enjoy Your Flight over Belgium, is such a gastronomic delight, so to speak.  It portrays Belgium as few tourists (or Belgians!) will ever experience it: flying through Brussels, following the grand boulevards in your helicopter -- not all that much higher than treetop level...

It wasn't too long ago that we reviewed the eStarling from PF Digital.

I made a remark in that write-up about this being one of the few DPFs that had a wireless capability.

Well, today we are looking at another one and it seems that the ability to upload photos to digital picture frames wirelessly from your computer or directly from the Web is a hot feature these days.

The Nephilim Imperatives - Book Review

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.

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.

While keeping up to date back-ups and storing your data in RAIDs is a good start, it all means nothing without an adequate supply of power - Especially during a power outage when critical equipment needs to be shutdown to avoid data loss.

 

Eaton's range of Uninterrupted Power Supplies (UPS) aim to provide this power and with it, peace of mind.
