Simple but brilliant: Texting for pizza

On the surface, it doesn't quite make sense why you'd text a pizza order rather than just call it in. But sometimes ya just don't feel like dialing, waiting for someone to pick up, then explaining all the details, right? "Yes, I really do want a larg...

Control your iPod--with your mouth?

It's a natural reaction for me to clench my teeth whenever that James Blunt song comes on my iPod. Yes, in a moment of weakness, caught up in the hype, I downloaded it; and it still lives in my playlists. So how very convenient it'd be if, with a lit...

Get Ready to Rock

The Stones' Paint It Black, Sabotage by the Beastie Boys, Cherub Rock from the Smashing Pumpkins. These are just some of the songs that will be available when Guitar Hero III hits shelves later this year.

Apple goes to the airlines

You're sitting on a cross-country flight with your video iPod. But instead of enjoying those episodes of "Lost," you're watching that battery indicator sink lower and lower until finally it goes kaput.

JVC adds to the iPod craze

OK, we've officially lost count of the number of iPod speaker systems out there. And JVC has recently added a slew of new ones to the pot. Most drool-inducing is the NX-PS1 (US$250, available in September), a desktop system consisting of four cubes--...

Drunken speakers

Anything with the word "sake" in it immediately piques our interest, which is probably why JVC made sure to mention that its new compact home theater system features "sake-soaked wood cone speakers." JVC's new EX-A10 includes laptop-sized stackable r...

IPod remote with LCD

Here's a slightly different twist on the oversaturated iPod accessory market. Keyspan has announced the TuneView, a remote control for your iPod or for iTunes that has a built-in LCD so that you can actually see your playlists and songs as you naviga...

Apple iPod Photo

Carrying a wallet full of pictures around with you is so last year. Apple's iPod Photo makes looking at your most beloved pictures while on the go as easy as listening to your favorite tunes. But it isn't cheap.

Wi-Fi in the sky

Wi-Fi on airplanes just got a lot more entertaining. Boeing last week launched a streaming television delivered straight to your laptop as part of its Connexion by Boeing high-speed Internet service. The video service will debut on Singapore Airlines...

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre x360

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
