Further seconds of tablet coverage

Sure, it probably doesn’t need the hype. In fact, the only thing thinner than the iPad 2 is the quantity of available stock… [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hnOVZOzpejM[/youtube] (hey, at least it’s not a lame April Fool’s joke. I have far better lame jokes up my sleeve that I can deliver any day of the year I choose.)

I'm ready to be fired from the Cannon… or is it Canon?

One of the more common spelling mistakes you’ll find, along with “Phillips” for the consumer tech company. Late last week I travelled up to Byron Bay with Canon (disclaimer: They paid for my transport and accommodation. Make of that what you will) to field test a number of Canon products; most prominently cameras, both DSLR […]

Balls, Phones and Games

Another busy day sees yet more content going live. First up, at CNET.com.au, a review of a very nice trackball. I’m going to be sad to see this one go back, frankly: Kensington Orbit Trackball with Scroll Ring: “The design of the Orbit ball makes it stand out from the trackball crowd, which traditionally goes […]

Shiny phones, shiny drives and… Weird Al?

An opinion column, a review and a quick video. Or, in other words, I’m rather busy. First up, at Hydrapinion, I’ve mused on the ethics of recording acts in concert, by way of Harvey The Wonder Hamster: Weird Al, Copyright and Camera Confusion: “Have I missed a common consensus about what’s acceptable with portable gadgets […]

If you don’t, you probably don’t need to know). Over at CNET.com.au, another uDraw title got a going over: uDraw […]

It's all gone a bit Tablet-centric

As a multi-purpose freelancer*, I often find that my writing duties revolve around certain themes. One day it’s all Apple, the next it’s all printers, then AV suites, then… well, you get the idea. Today’s theme would appear to be Tablets. First up, at CNET.com.au, a review of an iPhone/iPod speaker dock… that also takes […]

30 Seconds Of Tech: Sandisk

The 30 seconds of tech concept evolves a little. A deliberate challenge: Can I make a thirty second video about a tech product that, underneath the surface has some nice numbers, but is externally very bland? Still experimenting with the format and getting a few details, such as the requested superimposed subtitles in there. Thoughts, […]

30 Seconds Of Tech: Samsung Galaxy Launch

An experimental idea I’ve been kicking around in my head for a while now. I attend a lot of product launches, and get some good hands-on time with products. It’s typically not enough to form a proper review, but it is good for showing off products. And that’s what thirty seconds of tech is meant […]
