Altec Lansing UHP326 Backbeat Series In Ear
Headphones are a personal thing. One person's amazing set of ear buds is another's torture device. So I'll give you a quick bit of information about my music background and needs list, then how these …

Microsoft Streets & Trips 2009 with GPS
I tried MS Streets & Trips on my Asus Netbook with 2 GB of ram during a recent road trip. Installation of the software on the notebook went well, and I plugged the small GPS unit into a free USB port …

Corel Home Office
I really wanted to like the new Corel Home Office suite. I don't like the bloat that comes with Microsoft Office (over a gig to install everything) nor do I need all the features within it. What I DO …

Rain Gods: A Novel
I'd never read a James Lee Burke novel before getting my hands on Rain Gods. If his prior work is anything like this latest book, I can't believe what I've been missing.       On the …

Canon VIXIA HV40 HD HDV Camcorder with 10x Optical
Camcorders are tough to review. The wide skill sets of consumers who purchase them as well as their diverse needs make for a ton of different approaches, though none that are necessarily one-size-fits-all. …

Logitech Wireless Desktop MK700
I go through a lot keyboards and mice; seems like I can never find a set that I'm completely happy with for one reason or another. And thus far in my search for the perfect set up, I've returned every …

Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2009
This is important: just because someone uses an anti-virus program and hasn't gotten a virus, doesn't make the program great. I don't use an anti-virus program at all on my netbook and have yet to get …

Vipre Antivirus+Antispy Home License
I don't usually buy anti-virus software. If I use anything, I'll put a free version of something on my computer, but I find the best way to stay spyware and virus-free is simply to understand what I'm …
MADE Products CA-2001-BLK Seattle Sling Waterproof
Here's the deal with this bag: if you need something to carry your camera equipment in that will be easy to travel with, keep your gear relatively safe, and above all keep it DRY - this is the best thing …
Altec Lansing 906/R US BackBeat Headphone with
This is my first set of stereo Bluetooth headphones, but I'm really happy I finally got a set. I'm not a big fan of single Bluetooth units, so I've resisted getting one. However, with my G1 now supporting …

Trouble Andrew
Trevor Andrew, AKA Trouble Andrew, may well be a brilliant and inspired snowboarder - I wouldn't know, as I don't follow snowboarding. I do however know a bit about making records, so I can say with a …

All That I Have: A Novel
I loved this book.      There, I've said it, so grab a copy.      What? More? Oh, right. OK then. I have not read "Go With Me", Freeman's last book, so I can't …
Arizona New Mexico & the Grand Canyon Trips
I've never read a Lonely Planet travel guide before, but after getting my hands on this one, I doubt I'll plan a trip anywhere without one (assuming wherever I'm going is covered of course).    …
Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3R Intel P45 + ICH10R Chipset
I have the Rev 1.0 version of this board, but have had absolutely no problems whatsoever. Installation of chip and cooler went fine, no problems installing OS of any sort.      All …
Canon Wireless Remote Control RC1 for Digital
Not much to say here that hasn't been said. The RC1 does exactly what you think it does: triggers the shutter on my XT (and many other Canon cameras) remotely.      Two simple controls: …
Lego Indiana Jones
Let me tell you: it's not easy to get my 8 year old son to stop asking me to let him play "M" rated games, but since I snapped up Lego Indiana Jones, there has been some very little need for me to so …
reviewed Asus Eee PC 1000HE 10-Inch Netbook. May 27, 2009
I'm late to the game here; there are already a ton of reviews detailing everything about the fantastic 1000HE - so I'm going to jump in with a few points that I find relevant that have been LESS detailed …

Microsoft SideWinder Gaming Mouse
I have major trouble finding good peripherals. I go through keyboards like candy and mice like Gatorade after a long bike ride, so I was really glad to finally get my hands (literally) on a keyboard (the …

Fischer & Wieser Mango Ginger Habanero Sauce,
Let me open by explaining something: I believe that good cooking requires some subtlety. A little restraint perhaps. But there's a school of cooking that seems to think that all you really need to make …

Durex Play Quiver Lubricant, 6 Cubes, 0.1 Packages
Let me say upfront that I'm not interested in writing a coy little review full of code words and metaphors. You know what these are for; my job it to let you know what they are like.      That …

Starvation Lake: A Mystery
I've always enjoyed mysteries. The problem is that there seem to be more cliches per page in the genre than in almost any other. Not so with journalist Bryan Gruley's first novel though, which is why …

Vendetta Cpu Cooler
I bought the Vendetta to replace the stock cooler on my Intel Q8200 Chip for a new computer build I recently did, and am extremely happy with it.      Installation was easy (I know …

Gaggia 8002 MDF Burr Grinder with Doser, Black
If you are reading this, you probably already know why a burr grinder is the only kind of grinder to get if you want to make good espresso (or coffee for that matter). And in the world of burr grinders, …

Microsoft SideWinder X6 Keyboard
I'm going to say right out that I'm not a heavy gamer. I do play occasional games, but plenty of other reviewers have covered the pros and cons of this keyboard for game use; what I haven't seen are a …

Rain Album Cover
Joe Jackson makes records worth listening to for many reasons. He always has. And Rain is no exception. It's a beautifully written, stripped down to the basics, eclectic record that gets better the more …

Ray Banks' second Cal Innes novel, Sucker Punch, is my first. I expect though that it won't be my last.      Sucker Punch takes us along with ex-con, ex-PI, codeine-addicted Callum …

Chocolate Rain by Tay Zontay
I beg to differ with the whole "21.5 million people can't be wrong" thing.   That said, just because 21.5 million people watched this on YouTube doesn't mean they LIKED it.  I mean, people stop …
