Storage, GPS, notebooks and near arrests.
So far, the highlight of my day has been nearly (but not quite) getting arrested at North Sydney station. Apparently I look a bit dodgy, and shouldn’t take photographs of things. Who knew? Otherwise, it’s been rainy and wet and busy, much like any other day. While I get on with it, you can amuse […]
iPod docks as far as the i can see…
Another day, another feature review, this time at GadgetGuy.com.au, where I’ve looked over high-end iPod/iPhone docks with an eye to working out if they’re really worth the asking price: Premium iPod Docks: “Inexpensive iPod docks abound, but will moving up the price ladder yield a music system that better serves your playlist?

Peoples of the Universe, please attend carefully…
“The message that follows is vital to the future of you all. The choice for you all is simple; a continued existence under my guidance — or total annihilation.” Now that’s my kind of ultimatum. Straight, to the point, and with a clear-cut choice as its basis. I somewhat felt like giving my own ultimatums […]
A new low in EULAs
I’m somewhat gobsmacked by this end-user license agreement that just came up. This is 100% unedited, exactly what’s come up on screen. Would you agree to it? I mean, really. That’s just one of the hurdles in the life of a busy product reviewer, but it’s not all bizarre EULAs and pain. Sometimes, I get […]
