Google Maps for Symbian Review

by Andi

Google have recently released a native version of Google Maps, for Symbian. Compared to the older Java version of the program, this has lots of advantages, the most obvious being start-up speed and runtime speed. Every animation is smooth, loading times are blazing if you have a good connection. An added feature would be the GPS support. This is really cool as long as you have an always-on connection, especially …

Google Presentations

Upon looking in my Google Docs page today, I discovered some new thing: Google Presentations. Of course, the first thing to do was test it. And I did. And it’s cool!.. Even if there are no fancy transitions or animations, you can still create decent, good-looking presentations, and there are some pretty nice features to it too. Best of all, the presentations are always online and you can access them …

iPod Touch Review

by Mike


For the unknowing, Apple started shipping its new iPod Touch late last week. This is the new iPod that’s essentially the iPhone sans the phone; prices start at $300 for 8GB and go up to $400 for 16GB. While they’re usually sold out as quickly as they come in, I managed to grab one and made a nice little review, at least I hope it’s nice. I’ll be covering the …

One for the smokers: a cool vintage lighter!

by Andi

A few weeks ago, when ordering some motorcycle gear, I took a random look at the ‘Presents&co.’ section. There I found a lighter that caught my eye. Made of first-grade but vintage-looking brass, it’s a replica of those used by French soldiers in the first World War. It’s an inexpensive gadget which is always a pleasure to look at. You’ll see a bigger picture and a video after the break.

It’s a Guy Thing by Scott Seegert

I was recently approached by Scott Seegert and asked if I’d like to review his new book, it’S A GUY thiNg. It’s the first time I’ve ever been contacted by a published author and as I’m not renowned for saying no to freebies I was more than happy to accept. I received my signed copy of it’S A GUY thiNg last week and have flicking through it and giggling to …

Megatron is angry you haven’t seen his movie yet!!

by Fred

See My Movie!!!!

So maybe you’re thinking that Transformers is a dumb toy commercial. While it is based on the toys made in the early 80’s by Hasbro (Thank you Hasbro!) However the writing crew did a great job binding together a story that parallels the atmosphere of the original Gen I Transformers, while bringing new, and clearly up to date ideas to the big screen and introduce a whole new generation to …
