Meet El Presidente

Alright, iTunes. You win. I’ll listen to some Duran Duran then, shall I?
First off the blocks today is a news story written yesterday for APCMag.com:
Ruslan Kogan unveils his new netbook: “It’s very cheap, and surprisingly for a cheap Netbook, it’s pretty decent.”
And then it’s off to the local agency of News with you for multiple Kidman-based print offerings.pcu_apr09
First up, the April 2009 issue of PC User, which had 12 pages of the best Broadband and VoIP deals Australia has to offer. That’s a lot of content to write, and an almost brain-breaking number of ISP Terms & Conditions documents to read through. You’d think I’d have less insomnia with documents like that to read through, but perhaps my brain has become immune to the pain of a T&C document. Beyond broadband, you’ll also find my reviews of the HTC Touch HD, Telstra EasyTouch Discovery, Digitech Audio USB Turntable, Gigabyte GM-M8000 gaming mouse and Gigabyte GK-K8000 Gaming Keyboard.
If you were to wander into the offices of PC User Magazine, you’d only be a stone’s throw away from stablemate Australian Netguide, and, as has been the case for some time now, I’m also in this month’s issue rather heavily. First up, a comparitive review of home laser printers, including the Brother HL-2140, Canon Laser Shot LBP3250, Fuji Xerox Phaser 3125N, HP LaserJet P1005, Lexmark E260D and Samsung CLP-310. Standalone reviews include the Telstra T165i Country Phone, Telstra EasyTouch Discovery Phone, Avanquest Perfect Image 11 Backup & Protect Suite, Netcomm NB12WD MyComms Gateway, Belkin Hi-Speed USB 2.0 7-Port Hub, PC Tools iAntiVirus, iolo Drive Scrubber, Sandisk Mobile Ultra 8G and Verbatim Colour Edition 320GB HDD. But I’m not quite done yet! There’s also the Broadband Table and Games reviews, which this month encompasses F.E.A.R 2, Midnight Club LA, Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe and Killzone 2.
OK, OK. I think I’m starting to work out why I feel so worn out right now…
