I need a coffee…

Published on :

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 […]

Hi. My name is Alex, and I’m an email addict…

Published on :

Well, apparently. The thing that gets me about this story — and I’ll freely admit I’ve been known to jab at the “send/recieve” button in my email client of choice (Thunderbird, if you really care) — is the following quote: “On average, workers who receive an email take four minutes to read it and recover […]

Mamma Mio, here I go again…

Nothing like a bad tech pun to start the day. Or end the day, for that matter. Heck, you can engage in a bad tech pun at any time of the day. Try one today! In the meantime, CNET.com.au has another review of mine live today: Mio Digiwalker P350: “Can we move away from devices […]

5,310,222 bottles of beer on the wall…

According to Alexa, this blog is currently the 5,310,223rd most popular site on the Internet. So, all I have to do is sit back and wait for the other 5,310,222 sites to collapse or lose readership, and I’ll be the next Google. Who wants a gold-plated swimming pool first?

Bloody Nintendo…

Published on :

Bugger, bugger and blast. And stronger words, possibly pertaining to fornication… I rather like the Nintendo Wii. Review of it and the games in a forthcoming issue of Netguide, by the way. There’s only one thing I don’t much care for, and that’s the fact that the Virtual Console system doesn’t support TurboGrafx-16 games — […]

Heavy rain, when I’m with you…

Published on :

Sadly, I wish I was just quoting that Hall & Oates lyric for the fun of it. On the one hand, rain is good. It helps the newly planted garden grow, and makes the newly laid turf prosper. It even washes the car for me (because I’m lazy). And there’s something hypnotic about rain hitting […]

So rough, but we’re gonna make it…

Published on :

A rare bit of Hall & Oates inspired subject line malarkey, just for a change. The fine folks (and folkettes, and beavers) at CNET.com.au have two reviews and a feature of mine up for your delectation. Logitech Alto: “Logitech’s Alto offers an easy way to add a full-sized keyboard to your laptop while bringing the […]

You’d better wake up and release it…

Published on :

GadgetGuy.com.au has five — count ’em, five — of my reviews live today for your reading/research pleasure. I’m just nervously waiting for the Apple aficionados to descend on me en masse for having the temerity to say that there’s something out there in the ultraportable space better than the Shuffle. Awaiting immolation in 5, 4, […]

That lives up to all your funkspectations, no matter how high or low…

Published on :

After far, far too long, I’ve updated and reformatted my “About Me” page, including the answers to the not-terribly-frequently-asked questions I get. Yes, even that one about Nicole, and why I often have seemingly spurious subject lines — see above for a prime example. In other adminstrivia, I also noticed that Rah has once again […]

All your lovers, they look just like you…

I write stuff. You may have gathered this, if you’ve read this blog before. If you’re a total newcomer, then, welcome, come in, please take your shoes off and find a comfy bean-bag. Coffee is optional, and smoking is strictly prohibited. Offenders will be fed to the Snilth Wimbat. Having established that I scribe, you […]
