A Printer That Looks Like A Trouser Press, Bored Games And More…

Somehow, I knew that the year wouldn’t finish on 335 online reviews. At CNET.com.au, I’ve got this pair of reviews. First up, a printer that, when the time came to name it on the network simply had to be called “Genesis Of The Daleks”, although I did toy with Star Trek and Phil Collins puns as well:
Lexmark Genesis: “In the interests of science, we also tested how well the Genesis worked as a trouser press. Aside from offering to scan our slacks, it performed poorly.”
And then something that I should love: A collection of classic board games. Except that… I didn’t.
Hasbro Family Game Night Vol 3: “Your host through all the games is Hasbro’s own Mr Potato Head. And he’s easily the best thing about the title, hands down. Anyone who doesn’t like Mr Potato Head, frankly, has no soul.
The problem is the rest of the games on offer largely don’t have any soul either.”

Meanwhile, in the print world, I’ve been busy too. The January issue of Australian PC User features a whole range of my reviews. For the second month in a row there’s a smorgasbord of smartphone reviews — the HTC Desire HD, Blackberry Torch 9800, LG Optimus 7, Motorola Milestone 2, HTC 7 Mozart, Samsung Galaxy 5, Millennius Apanda A60 and Nokia N8 to be specific. Joining them in standalone reviews are┬áthe Telstra T-Touch Tab, JVC Picsio GC-WP10, Flip UltraHD, PADACS Ultracharge, Franklin Roadie, Western Digital MyPassport Essential USB 3.0 500GB, Buffalo Ministation Lite USB 3.0 500GB, Buffalo Drivestation USB 3.0 1TB, NBA 2K11 and WWE Smackdown Vs Raw 2011.
Maybe I should revise that 2010 figure to closer to 600 reviews…
