Wireless, Printers, Mice, Keyboards, Phones, Fights & Additional Awesome

Another week kicks off, and with it a fresh menu of delicately prepared articles. Today, Chef Alex recommends:
At PC & Tech Authority, one part of the massive mobile broadband feature I’ve mentioned previously has gone up, detailing Optus’ test results:
Optus wireless broadband reviewed: “Optus’ network performance remains impressive, but…”
At CNET.com.au, an inexpensive printer with a terribly confusing print ink estimate scheme goes under my purview:
Canon Pixma MX885: “Canon’s small office multifunction is something of a bargain in the features stakes, although there are a few trade-offs in utility that make that possible.”
Telstra seems to think its latest Smartphone is (and I quote the advertising, both in words and pictures) AWESOME. I’m not quite so taken.
Telstra Smart-Touch: “After all, if a company as big as Telstra says it’s AWESOME, it must be so, right?”
And in this month’s PC User (on sale at newsagents now), I’ve got reviews of the Sony Xperia Play, Nintendo 3DS, Jabra Stone 2, Netgear NeoTV 550, Wintal DCR10W, Huawei Ideos X5, HTC HD7, Nokia E7, a whopping sixteen different Mice and Keyboards (tougher to test than you might think, even though one of them was waterproof), Motorstorm: Apocalypse and Fight Night Champion.
 
Whew. That’s a lot of dishes to prepare. I think it’s time for a break… but no, more customers await…
