The Archos 7 8 GB Home Tablet with Android is an extremely impressive new product and offers an exciting new way to access information on the internet. News, weather or any sort of important information can be easily and, importantly, very quickly accessed by users on a device which, eliminating the need to sit at a desktop PC, can be used in most locations whether indoor or outdoor where there is a Wi-Fi connection available.

The Archos 7 8 GB Home Tablet certainly has many exciting and technically innovative features creating a high demand for the product in today’s market. For an extremely portable device, the size of the screen is incredibly generous; at a wide 800 x 480 size, the Home Tablet’s multimedia content is easily accessible and clearly presented in a high resolution format. There is no need to zoom in on images or text either as the screen presents a crystal clear and colourfully vibrant screen.

 The memory capacity on the device is another key aspect to the product’s success; the 8GB of memory available for storage will allow 7 feature length movies to be kept on the device. Users can thus view 720p HD movies anywhere they want. Music can also be easily stored and to a greater extent. 4,000 songs and 80,000 photos can be kept on the memory whilst a micro SDHC enables the connection of memory cards so users can store even more media files.

The battery is efficient which is what users consider to be important. The Archos 7 8 GB Home Tablet enables the user to view up to 7 hours of video or, alternatively, 42 hours on a single charge.

One of the more interesting aspects for this device is the ability to be connected to a HD Television system. The composite video output enables users to watch any stored media content on the 8GB memory to be viewed through a HD TV. The only niggle with this is that the cable required to do this is, in fact, sold separately.

Users can also install a wide range of extra applications. The Archos 7 8 GB Home Tablet is based upon the popular Android operating system which means there is plenty of room and scope for the user to customize their device. The user can connect to the Android market and choose from a variety of extra applications to download in conjunction with the many apps already installed on the Home Tablet. Alternatively, the user can take advantage of the AppsLibs store for an extensive and diverse range of free or shareware applications.

The Archos 7 8 GB Home Tablet, overall, is a very new and exciting way of keeping up to date with news updates and friends and family through social networking and chat rooms.

HP iPAQ 111 Classic Handheld Review

The last decade has certainly seen the huge expansion of technological innovation in gadgets such as the laptop, netbooks, Iphones and many more highly sophisticated devices. The last decade then, with ever increasing demands, has also given rise for the need for mobile computing. The introduction of the HP iPAQ 111 Classic Handheld PDA device has certainly given the public what they want.

HP iPAQ 111 Classic Handheld


The portable, handheld nature of the HP iPAQ PDA allows the user to do all that portable laptop can do but, unsurprisingly, in a much smaller way. Microsoft Word, Excel and Powerpoint are all programmes that can be used and in an equally efficient way as using a laptop. From a technical standpoint, the HP iPAQ 111 is a very powerful device for such a small size; the processor, for one, is a Marvel PXA310 cpu running at 624MHz. Combine this with 64mb of SDRAM, 256 of Flash ROM and the Microsoft Windows Mobile 6.0 Operating Software and you are looking at what could potentially be a very successful contender in today’s technological market.

Looking at the style and appearance of the HP iPAQ 111 device, you can certainly tell that the designers have spent time carefully implementing their ideas to make this the best mobile computing device out there. With its light weight and anti-slip body, it will never be easier to carry a portable computer in your pocket. The user will have no problem seeing what’s on screen either; the size of the screen can show up to an amazing 64,000 colours and with its 3.5 inch touch screen, there’ll be no squinting of the eyes when reading whatever it is that’s on screen.

The incorporation of Bluetooth also makes this a very worthwhile device to have around. Business owners are one particular demographic this device may benefit; Bluetooth enables the synchronization of other Bluetooth enabled devices whilst also being able to synch their PDA with files and other documents through Bluetooth. Furthermore, the internet can be accessed through wireless networks in a diverse range of environments such as airports, offices and endless public places. HP iPAQ 111 users can print documents, access e-mails and exchange files. In fact, there’s not much that you can’t do here.

The price of the HP iPAQ, for many, could be probably a little lower but that does not detract from the amazing quality and power the device shares. Although there are similar devices with similar capabilities on the market for lower prices, the customer will undoubtedly find the HP iPAQ 111 Classic Handheld a new and exciting way of mobile computing.

In today’s society, the internet has grown and grown in to such a crucial part of everyday life that nearly everyone in the country has access to. Whether accessing information, shopping or socializing with friends and family, the internet has grown in to a huge, social phenomenon. Nearly every household incorporates the internet in to their daily lives, many with more than two PCs or laptops, and so the need for an effective internet operating service has become crucial. The Cisco-Linksys E3000 router makes for an easy and quick connection to the world wide web.

The Cisco-Linksys E3000 router is a powerful, dual-band wireless router. It can connect to a whole host of internet enabled products such as gaming consoles like the xbox 360, Playstation 3, or other mediums such as HD television systems. Downloading media and streaming files is an effortless and speed efficient, at up to 300Mbps, process due to its dual band processor.

Cisco-Linskys has also taken the protection of children in to account. In the world today, the internet, if ignorant of the potential dangers of using the internet, can be a risky medium for any user. Blocking threats to your PC is a doddle thanks to the Cisco-Linksys E3000 Router which offers a host of internet protection settings. These include possible connections to WPA/WPA2 Personal, Enterprise and the SPI firewall for increased security.

Hardwiring computers through network cables is also an easy option waiting to be carried out. The 4 Ethernet ports, providing extra functionality and flexibility, enable the router to hardwire via 10/100 and 1000 Mbps. Also worth mentioning are the USB ports. Saving time is sometimes crucial and with this router printers can be shared so that the user does not have to revert back to the main PC to print something off.

Searching through endless reviews of this router, many are extremely favourable to the Cisco-Linksys E3000 High Performance Wireless Router. Indeed, the product includes all of the regular features users have come to expect from wireless routers, including the dual band connection and variety of safety settings. It is easy and quick to setup; two aspects of any product that will ensure the happiness of users all over.

There are a few negative aspects to the router however. One criticism is the heat that the router seems to generate. You’d think that Cisco Linksys may have solved the overheating problem but, as it happens, they haven’t. Other criticisms have engaged the occasional need to reboot the router or being kicked off of the internet. These small criticisms aside, the Cisco-Linksys E3000 router is a very quick and efficient way of surfing the web.

Apple MacBook MC516LL/A 13.3-Inch Laptop Review

With its sleek and technologically innovative design, Apple has claimed that this MacBook MC516LL/A13.3-Inch Laptop is not only speediest but technically able laptop in today’s market. Can an examination of Apple’s gorgeous new design really prove Apple’s bold statement is correct? The laptop certainly does appear to be a huge contender for the king of laptops with its power, speed and capability to support graphically intense computer games such as Call Of Duty. Its gorgeously sleek design and ability to surf the world wide web undoubtedly shove this laptop in to the higher echelons of the laptop table.

The MacBook MC516LL/A design is similar to other Apple laptops; with its curves and sleek shape, the laptop itself is a joy to behold. This is complemented further with what has seemingly become Apple’s trademark colour. With Apple, white is certainly the new black and the laptop is all the more unique looking for it. However, it is all well and being boasting of the laptop’s design and appearance, but what can this laptop actually do that stands it apart from others on the market? 3D games such as Call Of Duty 4 and Unreal Tournament can be played without problem and to the highest efficiency; speed and power are not going to be a problem here with Apple’s implementation of 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duos CPU, the 2 gig of 1066MHz DDR3 Ram and NVIDIA 320M graphics with 256Mb of DDR3 memory. Other software including movie making programmes and Photoshop can be run just as easily.

Concerns for the environment have also made the MacBook MC516LL/A a popular choice for people deciding which laptop to invest in. The hardware used by Apple is energy efficient and, perhaps more importantly, no toxic chemicals of any kind have been used in its manufacture. Furthermore, Apple can be seen to have made a step up from rivals such as Windows in regard to battery life. The longer lasting ability of the Apple Macbook is an undeniably huge advantage and, in gaining a step towards dominating the laptop market, will be crucially important in the future.

It does seem however, that Apple may still be able to make a few small improvements despite having seemingly gone all out to impress. With the norm in today’s market including the use of a 500GB hard drive, it is slightly disappointing to see the Apple MacBook using only a 250GB hard drive. One other niggling problem and possible obstacle is the price of the Apple’s product. Compared with, say, Windows’ laptops, the Apple Macbook is available to buyers at a higher price. The superior technical ability may ultimately account for this but may prove a stumbling block for many people. If the budget is there for an Apple Macbook, there are certainly enough advantages to recommend the MacBook MC516LL/A.

With waves upon waves of Bluetooth headsets already on the market, it can be difficult to know which one to spend money on. So, with the emphasis here on the Jawbone Icon “The Thinker” Bluetooth Headset, what can this Headset offer that stands it apart from the others? This headset is the smallest Jawbone model available but is just as comfortable and easy to wear. Many users have expressed their love of this particular model, commenting not only on its simplicity to use but also its durability as well.

 Jawbone Icon The thinker Bluetooth Headset

As with some other Bluetooth devices, the quality of the sound through the headset may depend on the weather. With windy conditions, say, the sound coming through may not be the best. This Jawbone model is, however, the only Bluetooth model to incorporate a sensor-fusion wind filter meaning that the user will no longer have to ask the speaker to make themselves louder. The sound will be clear come rain or shine. Complementing this feature is the NoiseAssassin 2.5 feature. This is a noise cancellation feature which, making this product very popular, allows for the expression of a far superior sound quality.

Another impressive aspect of the Jawbone Icon “The Thinker” Bluetooth Headset to mention is the talk-time. The 4.5 hours of talk-time available means that users can talk for a longer amount of time and, setting this device apart from others, is a longer time than any other Bluetooth models. The device can also last up to 10 hours on standby is another added bonus, especially for busy people who need to contact each other on a regular basis.

Comfort is also important for the user. This particular model comes with 7 different sizes of ear bud so the user can see what benefits them the most. The model also comes with an adjustable ear loop. This is for optional wear however, and is greatly advantageous for people who wear glasses who otherwise may have experienced discomfort.

A favourite new feature has been the addition of an on/off button. The device can be switched on simply and eliminates the need to hold the switch down for a long period of time to turn it off. The old way of switching the device on and off meant that sometimes the set was left on accidentally and thus wearing out the power. This is reversed here however.

To summarise, this Jawbone Icon “The Thinker” Bluetooth Headset model is well worth the asking price. For people who talk for long periods of time but want the use of both hands will love this new Jawbone design. With a host of new features, this is definitely a Bluetooth headset that stands apart from the rest.
