Review: Samsung S1 Mini (Because Everyone Should Have a Hard Drive in Their Pocket)

by on May 29th, 2009

I like to put backing up and flossing your teeth in the same category – the category that includes things you know you should do, but you don’t do, and when you realize you should have done it…it’s usually too late.

But with the Samsung S1 Mini, how can you not make backing up a regular activity? This thing is so small, so sleek, and so easy to use, it actually makes backing up enjoyable. The Samsung S1 Mini has a hard disk size of 1.8 inches and holds 120 GB. At 87mm x 62mm x 15.5 mm and 91g, it’s definitely convenient to carry around wherever you go, and it connects to any computer via a USB connection. You can use it on Windows XP/Vista or Mac OS X.

I love my HP IPAQ 910!

by on May 29th, 2009

Yeah yeah I know this isn’t a new product but I love my HP Ipaq 910 Business Messenger!  Actually after seeing my friend throw a fit the entire weekend and threatening to throw a phone out the window (will not mention brand but its apparently everything but a phone);  I sat there content with my phone.  Yes my phone may have minor problems like its not loud enough over my hip hop music and that may be a user error.  Also, call me crazy but I kinda like listening to my ringer and tend to miss calls while looking at my phone dancing along to the ring tone.  I also do this in my condo’s elevators and have a good idea that security is cracking up at me.

HP is updating their mini portfolio :)

by on May 27th, 2009

After listening to the latest changes being made to the line of minis, I’ve decided to finally go out and purchase one. I need one. I need a companion PC to allow me to function when I’m on the road without solely depending on my work laptop. Last week my work laptop got invaded by coodies and left me computer-less for the weekend. Despite enjoying the beautiful NYC weather, holiday BBQs and great sales – I was a lot less productive than I had hoped to be. Not a great look for a multitasker…

“Rock Band® Track Pack™ Classic Rock” Available Now Nationwide

by on May 20th, 2009

If its not obvious I love Rockband so check it out fellow rockers,  MTV and Harmonix just released the Rockband Track pack Classic Rock nationwide!  The new game is only 29.99 and has 20 songs from artists such as The Who, Rush, Boston, Police, Steve Miller Band, George Thorogood and more!

I am always excited about new songs, how many times do you do a mystery set list and then there it is…your heart drops.  The same song you have been playing since you started the game and in your mind you think “Oh no, not again…I can’t do it…I can’t play this song…crap I can’t abort the game then I will loose fans!”  Then you feel guilt, I use to love this band and if I hear this song again I may jump out my window.  Unhappily you play that song while attempting to figure out how remove the song forever…well maybe I am a bit over dramatic…

So bring on more songs for the rockers who need to be constantly stimulated Rockband

by on May 19th, 2009

So like most rockbanders eventually you need to leave your home.  I mean you can not just walk out your house with the full drum set and guitar…though it would be amusing to witness one would have to think your one french fry short of a happy meal walking around with a fake guitar. Today I was thrilled and I mean jumping up and down excited about the new Rockband Unplugged to be released on June 9,2009 for PSP!  Yes!  A new challenge!

Review: Seagate FreeAgent|Go – Portable Drive

by on May 17th, 2009

img_0820Seagate’s FreeAgent|Go Portable Drive is the first external hard drive that I laid my pretty little hands on. I was dreading actually using it, because I thought it was extremely complicated and time consuming. I imagined myself disheveled in a corner, with my computer running extremely slow, giving me errors that the maximum capacity was dangerously close to being met, advising me to close some windows…and me, flipping through pages, trying to figure out how I could clear some of the memory from my computer, by connecting it to a hard drive, before it gave me the oh’ so dreaded BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH.

That was my fear. I hoped not to end up in that situation.

And that’s exactly how it happened.

Review: LG Lotus for Sprint

by on May 14th, 2009

lg-lotusI’ve been a loyal Sprint customer for over 8 years now and through time, like most relationships; there have been ups and downs. One of the ups was when I received the LG Lotus to try out. From the moment I saw commercials for this phone, and when I tried playing with it in the Sprint store all I thought was ‘what the heck?’ – Why? Because over the years, I’ve been trained to think that all phones, to be normal, are rectangular, and most smart phones are touch screen or sliders.

Can you blame me? Not really. Most of us don’t live overseas, or spend enough time toying with the savy phones that come out, so when Sprint launched the Lotus I thought “Woohoo, change is coming!’.
