Snap Happy

By Kate Pierson In life, we are taught to live for the moment. And when that moment comes, we want to own it, preserve it and keep it with us always. A momentous memory can be of infinite proportions, but what we use to capture it, doesn’t have to be. Because with the tool that makes time stand still, it’s all about compact quality. Samsung ES-55 Digital Camera Whoever said quality means costly? Because the 10.2 megapixel Samsung ES-55 Digital Camera is disproving those odds and packing pics with punch into economical and easy to use...

Belkin Play Max Wireless Router

By Ian Knott I’ve become a big fan of Belkin products over the last few years, mainly because of their build quality, style and ease of use. Their latest range of wireless routers only serve to solidify my feelings towards the brand. There are 5 models in the router range (and 4 in the modem router range) so whatever your wireless computing needs are, there will be a model perfect for you. I had the pleasure of trialling the top-end model, the Play Max. The Play Max (and Belkin Routers in general) epitomizes the term ‘plug n play’. Wireless...

Sony Ericsson U5i Vivaz

By Ian Knott With so many mobiles looking so alike these days I was expecting a typical Sony Ericsson stylish but block-like design when the Vivaz arrived on my desk. How wrong could I be! The curvaceous, contemporary design just begs you to touch it, hold it in your hand and spin it around on the table. Yes, that’s one of the first thoughts that came to mind and not surprisingly that’s exactly what I find myself doing subconsciously. You see it’s the cambered back of the Vivaz – the same curved back that lays in your palm like it was...

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini Pro

By Ian Knott   I was quite excited to get my hands on the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini Pro as it was my first ever experience with the much lauded Android operating system. It took me all of about 1 minute to absolutely fall in love with it. The phone was running Android 1.6 – which is an older version of the software – but Sony Ericsson has promised an upgrade to 2.1 any day now. That said, I was still blown away by the dynamic menu system, total ease of navigation and the user-friendliness associated with every feature. I just hadn’t...

The Kymera Wand

The cardinal rule of the world of witchcraft and wizardry has been broken with the introduction of gadgetry to the “muggle” world. And while the relic prophecy of the magic land warns that muggles and magic should never mix, it seems the two worlds are colliding with the invention of the Kymera Wand, a buttonless gesture-based universal remote control. Delivered via a wand-shaped black box lined in silk brocade, the instruction manual has the antiquated look of potions parchment and while there may be nothing superstitious about the motion...
