by Caitlyn - on September 1, 2014

There are days when life wants to throw us a curve ball, and it’s always something we never expect coming out of nowhere. Usually you can recover from this sort of thing relatively easily, but it will knock you off-balance. Of course, there are also days where life fancies pelting us with rocks. This is the day that everything breaks, explodes, and just plain goes wrong.

Archos 101 Oxygen tablet offers yet another Android option

by Edwin - on September 1, 2014

ARCHOS-101-OxygenWhen it comes to tablets, French company Archos is certainly not a newbie in this department, although one is unable to rank them in the same vein as that of South Korean conglomerate Samsung. Still, some of Archos’ tablets in the past like the Archos 70 Internet tablet has proven to be an interesting attraction, but time does fly, and here we are with the Archos 101 Oxygen tablet that will rock to the Android platform.

Archos intends to change the way one experiences an Android-powered tablet through the merging of power, features and design. The Archos 101 Oxygen tablet will run on a quad-core ARM Cortex A17 processor, where it will be accompanied by 1.5GB RAM and 16GB of internal memory. In other words, the Archos 101 Oxygen tablet packs enough processing firepower underneath the hood to be able to handle all of the normal apps and online activities, such as chatting via an IM to sending emails, updating social network statuses, and catching up on your online news, without being too bulky that you are unable to carry it in a purse.

The Archos 101 Oxygen tablet will arrive next month for $249 a pop.

However, if you are short on time to read up on all of the relevant reviews in the past, and would like a swift recommendation, perhaps the Archos 50b Platinum could prove to be quite the winner here. After all, surely one would not expect too much from a $149 handset, but the Archos 50b Platinum is a bag of surprises!

This latest smartphone from the French device manufacturer will run on a quad-core processor, and will sport an extremely bright 5” IPS display that comes in handy at all times – especially if you tend to be outdoors a whole lot, as the brightness would somewhat combat the glare from the sun. Want to separate your work life from your private life? Not a problem, thanks to dual SIM support thrown into the mix. Not only that, its 8MP camera at the back offers Full HD video recording capability and autofocus, while the 2MP front-facing camera will also sport a built in LED flash that comes in handy during low light conditions.

As for its memory, you can swap out 8GB microSD memory cards from time to time to keep things fresh. Expect the Archos 50b Platinum to arrive later this month with Android 4.4 KitKat in tow as the mobile operating system of choice if you are interested.

rc-robot-carI do wonder how many of us are excited with any more Transformers movies that movie studios have lined up in the future – surely the fast paced action of transforming robots into vehicles that is too much of a blur for us to appreciate properly, even in an IMAX cinema, is a fad that has long overstayed its welcome?

Having said that, your child might be clamoring for a Transformers toy from Hasbro, but you decided to take the road less traveled with the $89.95 RC Car To Missile Launching Robot.
