VTech I5871 Design Phone

03/05/2007, I was looking for a new home phone and after stopping at the local Frys, I realized that home phones were just as ugly as when I bought the last one: seven years ago. However, the VTech I5871 (what a horrible name) stood out and after quickly reading the...

Maxtor Fusion 500GB Review

02/26/2007, The Maxtor Fusion is a Personal Web Server that looks like an external hard drive connected directly to your Ethernet network. I said “looks like” because it’s not just a hard drive: it’s a little computer that acts as silent...

Pantech PX-500 EVDO Card

02/26/2007, Real road warriors know that Wi-Fi’s coverage can’t be relied upon for professional purposes. The Pantech PX-500 is a PCMCIA card that can connect your laptop to Sprint’s 3G network and let you access your emails and data in a much wider...

Oakley Radar Hands-On

02/26/2007, Last week we showed you the Oakley Radar launch in San Francisco. This time, we have crisp photos of the new sunglasses. We received a black model this time (we played with the gold one at the event). A closer look reveals a very cool translucent...

Garmin Nuvi 660 Review

02/20/2007, When it comes to GPS devices, Garmin is a very recognizable name, so much in fact that some customers would pay a premium over similarly-featured competing products. We’ve received the Nuvi 660 and eagerly installed it to take it for a ride. The...

Digital Audio Video Experience, DAVE, from Seagate

02/06/2007, DEMO 2007 – We have already published about the DAVE, but I could get my hands on it at DEMO 07. The demo on stage did not work (what a nightmare for Rob Pait (photo), Seagate’s Director for Global Consumer Electronics Marketing !)… but...

Pharos GPS 600 Review

01/23/2007, We’ve received a Pharos GPS 600 phone a few days ago and it’s working quite well. The device has a clean design and feels sturdy with its dark gray (non slippery) surface. The display frame has a matte aluminum finish that will not distract...

Shure E500 Review

01/05/2007, The Shure E500 seem to be the highest end earphones that one can find, so we wanted to test them and see how they perform in real conditions. Fortunately, I have a sound expert at hand with my buddy Eugene D. We tested the unit and here’s what he...

Nokia 770 Review

12/18/2006, By guest editor Steven Nersesian The much maligned Nokia 770 is the subject of our next adventure in reviews. In my years of dealing with technology there is one major truism: no electronic product exists (and probably never will) that meets...

Oakley Thump Pro Review

12/04/2006, Oakley extends its line of “Wearable Electronics” with a pair of MP3 sunglasses designed for sports: the Oakley Thump Pro. At first sight, it resembles its older cousin, the O ROKR (read review), but a closer look reveals a thinner...

T-Mobile Dash Review

11/22/2006, I had the opportunity to use the T-mobile Dash –also known as HTC S620- for half a day and I have to say that I liked what I saw. First, the device is cute and feels great in my hand. It is half the thickness of my gigantic Treo 700w and weighs...

Buffalo LinkStation HS-D300GL Review

11/08/2006, Over the years we grew accustomed to seeing external USB or Firewire drives. Many users like them because it’s an easy way to extend the storage space without having to open the PC. Unlike its USB or Firewire competitors, the Buffalo LinkStation...

VoSky Call Center Review

11/08/2006, Thanks to ActionTec, we got a hold of their product, the VoSky Call Center. The device, about the size of a Blackberry, connects to a USB port and will take your home phone via its RJ11 port. It acts as a switch between the Skype application and your...
