Apollyon Rising 2012 - a Book Review

Written by Martin Regtien on . Posted in Miscellaneous

Read more: Apollyon Rising 2012 - a Book ReviewImagine writing a book that you know will have a lifespan of only two years.  That's the danger of publishing a book with the date 2012 in the title.  However, it also gives an immediacy for the buying public as we all want to know what's going to happen in the very near future, rather than decades down the track. 

And so it is with the book Apollyon Rising 2012-- The Lost Symbol Found and the Final Mystery of the Great Seal Revealed by Thomas Horn.  If you think that is a long title, there is also a synopsis on the cover: A Terrifying and Prophetic Cipher Hidden from the World by the US Government for over 200 Years Is Here!

This sounds like the ultimate conspiracy theory in the style of Dan Brown.
Except...
there are some disturbing facts that sets it apart in this popular genre.

If you have read the news article written about this product, then you already know that I am very nervous about this.  I see my little dog, a Bichon Frise, through “rose coloured glasses” I’m told, but I do need to stop her welcoming people by jumping up at their cars.  The experts at www.dogmaster.com.au who are only a phone call away and have supplied the Petsafe Deluxe remote trainer to me for a “hands on” review, have absolutely assured me that if I follow their instructions religiously, all will be well.

 

So here goes!

The little unit I just received from www.oo.com.au is just the shot if you are visiting a foreign country and don’t know the native language well.  I threw some batteries in and ran it through its numerous functions.  You can see some of the translator’s capabilities within the product description and I can report that what it does, it does well.  For its size, the Trinvo translator is pleasantly surprising.

 

Vantage Vue Weather Station - Reviewed

The Vantage Vue was sent to us courtesy of  www.davisnet.com in USA and  through their Australian distributor Ecowatch at www.davisinstruments.com.au in Australia.  With the product being their latest 2010 model hot off the assembly line it required some last minute radio frequency alterations to conform with Australian legal requirements.

Let me first apologise to those people who were expecting a “shoot out”.  Unfortunately, the other party would not supply their product under the same concept and understanding that Davis did.  Davis just said “we are sending you our latest 2010 product, compare it with whatever you like”.  Nice to be so sure of yourself I guess, but I did wonder if they were perhaps too bold.

Have Davis set a new benchmark for their competitors to aspire to?  Let’s see!

Das Keyboard Professional - Reviewed

Read more: Das Keyboard Professional - ReviewedThis computer keyboard is different than all other keyboards that we have reviewed in the past.  Rather than putting all these fancy features on a keyboard that we may not actually need, a company has decided to go back to the 'basics' of the keyboard.  Going back to the 'basics', may not always have the desired effect.  This keyboard has a pricetag that most people may not be willing to pay for a keyboard.  At the same time, this review aims to see if this keyboard justifies its cost.
