OK, so today was something a little different…
(Post contains many images, so it’s after a page break. It’s your bandwidth I’m thinking of…)
The sweat is just down to Sydney’s always appalling humidity today. The other stuff? Two reviews, live today at CNET.com.au:
Internode MiFi: “Internode’s MiFi 3G modem/router works quite well, but carrier issues and high pricing are a big downside.”
Samsung Q320: “Samsung’s Q320 impresses us on most levels, except for the critical issue of battery life.”
And now back to the sweating.
Another day of rather mixed articles for your perusal.
Firstly, PC Authority has a roundup of remote control applications for iPhone:
Amazing Apps for your iPhone: Remote Control Apps: “Control your music, video, mouse and even your entire PC with these five remote control applications for the iPhone.”
and then CNET.com.au has another two of my reviews up. Firstly, a Samsung notebook:
Samsung R519: “Samsung’s R519 brings entry-level pricing and sensibilities to the market in a notebook that won’t wow anybody, or send them broke either.”
and then a DS game review that affords me the ability to reference ’80s action-adventure series and potentially defame a member of the Rolling Stones, and all within context.
Band Hero (DS): “Band Hero for the DS tries very hard to mimic the success of its full console brethren. It fails very hard, too.”
My job is nothing if not varied. Today’s articles run the gamut from cinema apps for the iPhone to 802.11n routers. Firstly, CNET.com.au has a two-pack of router reviews of mine up:
Billion BiPAC 7404VNPX: “The 7404VNPX has pretty much every feature you could ever wish for in a modem router — except stability.”
Billion BiPAC 7800N: “Billion’s 802.11n modem/router provides good signal but loses the message somewhere along the way.”
While at PC Authority, another iPhone Apps column emerges, this time recommending the best ways to hit the silver screen on time with your iPhone:
Amazing Apps for your iPhone: Cinema Apps: “Connect your iPhone to the local cinema with these four apps for buying tickets, checking screening times, and seeing what’s on.”
It’s quite well recognised that the iPhone’s camera isn’t much to write home about.
It’s a heck of a lot better than the one included on the iPad, though…
I’ll let that one sink in for a while. It may come to you, it may not. In the meantime, I’ve delved once again into the world of iPhone photo Apps with a look at Panorama stitching apps for PC Authority:
Amazing Apps For Your iPhone: Panorama Photos: “The iPhone’s camera is, as we’ve discussed before , not the greatest bit of optical equipment on the planet. With the right Apps, however, you can make an ordinary camera into something extraordinary.”
