So while I’m downstairs making a cuppa*, why not pop down to your local newsagents and buy yourself a magazine?
I know, I know — Newsagents are full of all sorts of magazines, and in today’s confusing world, you need some guidance as to what to buy. That’s exactly what I’m here for!**
For a start, pick up issue 10 of Home Entertainment: Australia’s Complete Digital Lifestyle Companion. Inside, you’ll find reviews of mine of the Creative Zen V Plus and Apple iPod 80GB, as well as the not entirely mis-named “Red Hot Routes” feature. Stop sniggering in the back there. It’s a GPS feature, you sicko!
While you’re there, you should also spot issue #1 (possibly a collector’s item, probably not though) of Windows Vista Magazine. Inside, you’ll find my reviews of the Altech NRG MIST QUATTRO Windows Vista Ultimate System, as well as the NEC Powermate V6102 Windows Home Basic system. Why anyone would buy Windows Home Basic is still, sadly, a mystery.
Last, but by no means least, the March issue of Netguide Magazine Australia should be within your reach. Inside you’ll find (as usual) a whole bunch of my scribings, including reviews of (customary deep breath): Sony VAIO VGNC15GPB , Lenovo N100, Fujitsu Lifebook A3110, Acer Aspire 5630WLMi, Dell Inspiron 640m, HP Compaq Presario B1900, Asus F3JP, Apple Macbook, Toshiba Satellite A100, Palm Treo 680, Logitech Quickcam Ultra Vision, FaceFilter Studio 2, Microsoft Office 2007, Quicken Personal Plus 2007, Sony DVD Architect Studio, Nintendo Wii, Compro Videomate U500, HP Photosmart D7160 Photo Printer, Jaws Unleashed (PC), Gears Of War (Xbox 360), Smackdown Vs Raw 2007 (PS2,PSP, Xbox 360) and The Legend Of Zelda: Twilight Princess (Wii, Gamecube).
That lot ought to keep you busy while I finish my coffee off..
*No, sadly, I can’t get you one.
** Actually, it’s not what I’m here for. Just to clarify.
