What's in a name? I like it when a device is just named for what it is: I'm talking about the Video Name Tag. Simply put it's basically a video playing business card which you can wear on your shirt. Nothing attracts more attention than moving images particularly if you're wearing it in a busy crowd! So if you're not too self-conscious and you want to draw some attention to yourself or your business let's switch it on and see what kind of response it generates.…
What is a PianoMaestro you might ask? It's an electronic teaching and tutoring aid for piano students and which aims to make learning the piano an enjoyable experience. If this could be true, bring it on! So let's see how the PianoMaestro is able to achieve -at a fraction of the cost- what we look for in human piano teachers.
The name “KArcher” has always been synonymous with high pressure cleaning, but boy, they have really come up trumps this time. Never have we reviewed a product of this type where the constructors must have designed the product by customer demand.
We have just received the best of the Premium Class, high pressure water cleaners - the KArcher K6 – 450 T400. It simply has everything. Made in Germany, it reeks of quality and engineering innovation. With the T400 you get everything you need for specialised jobs such as; Variable high pressure available in each of these applications, general cleaning, patio cleaning, gutter cleaning, vertical high situation cleaning. And all of these cleaning functions can also be assisted by use of a special purpose chemical injection.
Read on and we will tell you about a high pressure cleaning machine where we really struggled to find any issue that could be improved upon.
For years I have been looking for an easy to use backup solution that would run in the background continually updating my backup files. I found the solution years ago and it already saved my bacon on more than one occasion. But it wasn't all that fast and the interface left something to be desired. Now, the folks at Rebit brought out version 5 that addresses all these issues plus has some new features and is cheaper to boot. So, are we a happy camper?
You’ll never be out of a job when you’re in the security business, they say, and I suppose that this also applies to firms that supply security products. If that is the case Compro will do well as they are marketing a number of security cameras that most every one could use. One of these is the Compro IP60 which is a H.264 Network Camera with a few interesting features which makes it very much worthwhile to consider if you're running a business or for your home security.
Let's have a look.
While batteries pack in higher performance and technology improves lighting, we are taking great steps in LED efficiencies so it becomes a very changeable market in the torch world. So much so, that our new friends at the LED Torch Shop told us we could pick anything out of their huge selection to review. They had EagleTac, Fenix, Jetbeam, Led Lenser, Microfire, Nitecore, Sunwayman, and Surefire.
We selected what we thought would be the two brightest and go the furthest LED Torches - an Eagletac M3C4 @ 800 Lumens and the even more powerful Jetbeam RRT3 @ 1200 lumens.
How did they go? Read on as we evaluated them in comparison to see what came out the “best for the buck”.
About a year ago we tested the Playon!HD Mini’s bigger brother on this site. Have a look at Paul Moons’ review here. This will serve as the background article for the Mini as the functionality is essentially the same. So my review will focus mainly on the hardware side of things, including the wireless USB adaptor that BlueChipIT graciously supplied with the unit.
The PR blurb describes the Playon!HD Mini as “Sexy, compact, completely silent and feature packed” which -- they hope -- should make the Mini the must have media streamer for your digital lifestyle...
Today we will be revisiting our friends at Qref whose main mission in life is to bring the most useful and comprehensive aviation checklists to the market. We had a good look at one of their first productions: the Garmin 430 avionics checklist which you find here. That review gives you a lot of background information on the company so today we can be brief about the checklists for the Cessna 172R and the Bendix King KLN89.
The sturdy flip-over format of these checklists will make it easy to incorporate these with your knee board and are priced at just a tad under US$25.
Using 21 RC planes, we have endeavoured to supply all the information that anyone wishing to buy the best Beginner’s plane, or best Intermediate/Expert plane or to just fly remote controlled planes, would wish to know. Read on to find out how all of these planes were assessed against one another over all our tests to arrive at a best RC plane selection of “Best RC Plane of the Year” for each class.
We have, to date, spent five months putting the article together and it is currently not on schedule but will be published on this site during the third week of November 2010. But enough on what’s coming up, let’s tell you about how fantastic this little plane is!
