    Review: The Telikin PC For Older Folks

    I've been putting off writing about the Telikin because, arguably, any PC is suitable the older audience that the Telikin is aimed. I set my Dad up with a Linux machine and then a Mac Mini and he's been surfing Drudge and listening to Polka like a champ for almost a decade now. Why spend $699 when you can feasibly hook Grandma up with a PC for $400 or so at Best Buy? Well the Telikin is an… Read More

  • Up Close With The Xetum Stinson

    Up Close With The Xetum Stinson

    You no doubt are familiar with the Xetum brand, based out of California.  If not, just have a look over at to the side of the page. In the past, we've reviewed their Tyndall model; today, we'll be taking a look at the Stinson. The Stinson presents as a very minimalistic three-hander, and it does it with style.  I say that for two reasons - first, it's an extremely clean dial.  Second, the… Read More

  • Review: Epson WorkForce Pro WP-4540 All-in-One Printer

    Review: Epson WorkForce Pro WP-4540 All-in-One Printer

    We've covered quite a bit of the Epson line and usually found the printers to be solid, respectable, and inexpensive. This latest addition to the WorkForce family, the WP-4540 is arguably all of those with a few caveats. This is a workhorse printer, designed solely to pump out as much paper as possible in an office setting. It's quite large and heavy, and adding on the extra paper drawer makes… Read More

    Review: The Playstation 3D Display Lets You Bring All Of Your Friends

    Back at E3, the gaming world let out a collective groan when Sony announced they were making a special 3D TV for the PS3. However, that groan swiftly turned into a clamor of adoration once it was explained that the TV, in addition to displaying 3D content, would also allow two players to play side by side, seeing different displays through two pairs of 3D glasses. Called SimulView, it was pretty… Read More

  • Review: Orb Audio Booster With Super Eight Subwoofer

    Review: Orb Audio Booster With Super Eight Subwoofer

    Orb Audio is roundly seen as being a company that produces decent to excellent mini speakers at a price that is, at the very least, acceptable to a wide strata of the speaker-buying public. We reviewed a set of Orb home theater speakers and our reviewer found them excellent for cinema playback. The company, seeing a niche, has just released the Orb Audio Booster kit, a $356 package with two basic… Read More

  • Feet On With Fila’s New Skele-Toes EZ Slide Monkey Shoes

    Feet On With Fila’s New Skele-Toes EZ Slide Monkey Shoes

    As a fan of barefoot shoes I jumped (not very high, because you don't get a lot of air with bare feet) at the chance to try out Fila's new Skele-Toes EZ Slide barefoot shoes AKA the crazy monkey shoes not made by Vibram. These shoes are marketed as "casual" monkey shoes and are not designed for running. They are, luckily, fairly attractive in a "weird dude who wears barefoot shoes" kind of way… Read More

  • Archos 80 G9 Tablet Review: Fun But Ugly

    Archos 80 G9 Tablet Review: Fun But Ugly

    Short Version: The Archos 80 G9 tablet isn't necessarily something I'd recommend for the hardcore tablet enthusiast, but it certainly gets the job done. Powered by pure Android 3.2 Honeycomb, the tab offers everything you'd expect out of Android and a nice variety of ports, albeit with a somewhat rough build-quality. Read More

    Review: NeatDesk Scanner For Mac

    This thing has been sitting on my desk for most of the summer, like a sad-eyed puppy. It wanted me to review it, but like a petulant, spoiled child, I ignored it. "You're just a scanner," I said. "Who cares?" "You'll care eventually," said the NeatDesk For Mac. "And when you do, I may not be there for you." Read More

    B&W C5 Review: Sound Great, Look Classy, And Strong Like Bull

    It's amazing that in 2011, roughly 1,000 years after the earbud was originally created, a model could come along that's actually innovative. But Bowers & Wilkins actually did it. The C5 in-ear headphones debuted several weeks back and I've been testing a pair for a while. In short: I'm in love. Oh, it's not just that they sound great; they're made by B&W so I would expect nothing less. Read More

    The Olympus E-PL3: DSLR Power In A Point-And-Shoot Package

    Short Version It's hard to recommend the E-PL3 over the more powerful and touchscreen-capable E-P3 but if you're in the market for a much more compact micro 4/3s shooter and you can survive without a built-in flash, this may be the camera for you. Read More
