TEC Lingo Wireless Mouse

If you have been saving money for other laptop mouse, you may probably have to hold on to it for now because TEC's Lingo wireless mouse may turn out to be a more tempting offer. Not only it functions like a traditional mouse, the TEC Lingo may come as the "world's smallest mouse" at only 27.5 x 60 x 19 mm and 0.8 ounces.

This tiny mouse can cover up to 800 dpi for those precise clicking needs. It also has 2.4 GHz with a range of up to 32.8 feet, and about 15 hours of battery life with automatic shut off if left dormant for 5 minutes.As much as this mini wireless mouse looks cool, I honestly think that handling the TEC Lingo may take a high learning curve. Not only you have to get used to handling the smallest mouse, but also scramble to find it inside your bulky laptop bag.

Although it is currently unavailable in the United States, you can have one of these simply by shipping.

iPod Nano's have become quite popular gadgets that almost everyone has nowadays. Such a portable gadget makes it quite convenient for users to bring around anywhere, almost. Though they are quite handy and portable media players, iPod Nano's still are not well protected from getting wet. They lack suitable waterproofing.

The Ego IceBar2 is a waterproof iPod Nano speaker system can be a good addition for the popular portable media player.

Speakers are powered by four AAA batteries also housed within the IceBar2.The body is made up of Polycarbonate plastic with a silicon elastomer o-ring seal that will keep the insides dry.

In fact, the IceBar2 is also equipped with a removable float that allows the unit to easily float in a body of water for easy location. Available at the Atlantic Store for US$80.


Ultrasone Pro 900 Headphones Review

Let me say this right now. Your music is not good enough for these headphones. Remember that $4 milkshake from Pulp Fiction? That only scratches the surface of how utterly awesome the UltraSone Pro 900 headphones are. From listening to MP3’s to working in Pro Tools, I was honestly blown away by the sheer magnitude of quality that the Pro 900’s achieve.

The Pro 900’s come with a really nice hard shell case, two styles or cord, and two styles of velvet ear padding. They even come with a demo CD that contains various genres of music and sound effects. They are constructed of a thick plastic and plush velvet foam and feel very solid and comfortable even after hours of extended use.

These headphones are basically a thesaurus for every positive descriptive term there is, they’re that incredible. Rich and balanced bass response is complimented by refined treble and mid range frequencies. Discerning ears will definitely hear differences in bit rates and levels of production quality of their MP3’s. That’s the thing, the Pro 900’s are so accurate and true that they’ll literally pick apart your music. You’ll notice flaws in recording techniques and appreciate subtle nuances that you’ve never heard before.

As I’ve mentioned in past headphone and earbud reviews, an important variable in gauging the quality of a headphone is going to be the source material you’re listening to. With today’s music listener using primarily MP3’s that have fluctuating compressions, it makes it more difficult to accurately judge what’s really going on.I was able to clearly tell when recordings and mixes were all over the place as well as when everything was tight and compact. For whatever it’s worth, it definitely made me more critical towards my judgement of recorded music. But a rare treat in that. Makes me wish I had had these twenty years ago!

The only thing I didn’t like about the Pro 900’s was the input jack. You need to attach the 3.5mm adapter to use it with any MP3 player and it ends up sticking out really far and can be slightly obtrusive. Other than that, these are the best headphones I have ever heard point blank, period. If they’re in your budget or you have to save up for a couple months to buy them, they will be one of the best things you can buy for yourself as a music lover. Even from an audio engineering standpoint, mixing and recording with the Pro 900’s was a sheer blast. I absolutely recommend the UltraSone Pro 900’s to everyone who has the cash to drop on some immensely amazing headphones.

Abrams' reboot, Nokia are offering something to help them accessorize - Nokia 5800 Star Trek edition. It will come preloaded with Trek-related content like a phaser app, which will definitely help fend of people with lightsabre applications.

Another interesting 5800-related piece of news today is that the phone will launch with Nokia's Comes With Music service in Brazil. During the first month after the launch, it will be available only through Brazilian operator TIM.

Sony Ericsson C905

The C905 is Sony Ericsson's first Cyber-shot slider and its most advanced camera phone yet. With an 8.1 megapixel camera and real camera flash amongst its cutting-edge capabilities, it offers easy photo-taking in a phone that derives its looks from a digital camera and offers the picture quality to match.

The camera features auto focus, face recognition, a new feature called Smart Contrast, image stabilization, BestPic, red-eye reduction, xenon flash as well as photoflash for both photos and videos.

The camera is clearly the main selling point with the C905, but Sony Ericsson haven’t skimped on other features. The C905 has GPS, WiFi, HSDPA high-speed data, stereo Bluetooth and an FM radio.The display is a 2.4″ 240 x 320 pixel QVGA-resolution scratch-resistant mineral glass TFT display, and tucked behind it is a slide-out numeric keypad. There’s also a version of the Access Netfront web browser, push email support, instant messaging and of course a multimedia player.

The Sony Ericsson C905 measures 104 x 49 x 18 (19.5) millimetres, and weighs a massive 136 grams. It'll be available in Copper Gold, Ice Silver & Night Black in early Q4, with a bundled 2 GB Memory Stick Micro M2.

It comes in three variants, two with full support for UMTS and HSDPA in the certain regions (even America). The battery is good for 380 hours of standby or 9 hours of talk on GSM networks, or 360 hours of standby or 4 hours of talk on 3G networks.

The C905’s GPS can be used with Google Maps or Wayfinder, but it’s not clear what sort of satellite navigation options might be available as standard. As the C905 isn’t a smartphone, then the GPS functionality might be a little limited.

Samsung s30.

Samsung recently unveiled the Instinct s30 mobile phone, which on the outside looks like a smaller version of the original Instinct. However, the Instinct s30 is not really a mini Instinct.

Compared to the original Instinct, the s30 has a far sexier appearance. The curves around the edges make it more pleasing to look at compared to the blockish stature of the original Instinct. The 3.2-inch display with 432 x 240 resolution, however, leaves us begging for a much clearer screen. It takes quite a while to turn the power off, and the teeny-weeny 1GB microSD card slot makes it hard to eject. The saving grace in the Instinct s30's design is having a 3.5 millimeter headphone jack.
The Instinct s30 uses the similar OS to the original Instinct, which some users find disappointing. The icons on the main screen could not be customized, and the text messages still appear as a pop-up alert even when the message panel or web browser is loaded, making an utter nuisance. The built-in applications for MySpace, YouTube, Facebook, and Photobucket come as mildly impressive, but the applications found in BlackBerry App World come as superior. But when it comes to the basic tasks like typing a text message, making calls, and checking voicemail, users can definitely rely on the s30.

The biggest beef about the Instinct s30 is the expensive price tag. Getting this phone on contract with Sprint for $130 could leave you wanting. The mobile phone does not have a radio nor WiFi connectivity. The web browser features a large sidebar that appears as a waste of space, and it only appears fine for viewing mobile web pages (but not that good in web pages). It does not have a multi-touch feature or even an accelerometer.

The bottom line: The Samsung Instinct s30 would have been a great lower-end phone if it is promoted as such.

Hewlett Packard announced a new line of inexpensive notebook PC targeting the business professionals.

You can use it just like any other keyboards, only that the raised surface makes it less likely trap dirt and dust, while making it easy to clean and more maintenance free.

Some of the HP Probook models will have the latest in wireless connectivity through HP Mobile Braodband. Using a single module, the HP un2400, the HP Probook enables to support multiple mobile broadband network technologies and mobile operators.
