Logitech MX MX610 - mouse 07/10/2006

*****THE AMAZING MOUSE****

Logitech MX MX610 - mouse *****Logitech MX Mouse***** I can't believe i am writing a review on a mouse... But none the less, it is an amazing mouse.... I apologize if this review is short for some of you but remember, i am reviewing a mouse... Computer mice are about as exciting as bars of soap. But these mice have now evolved into things much more useful, cool, they've have just got more technical....Basically, today's mouse has evolved from its ancestors at a slow pace, leisurely trucking along until something exciting happens. Well Logitech have definitely evolved in their world of mouse making... This mouse has a fantastic laser sensor range of up to 30 feet, and longer battery life than most cordless mice - as i should know - because i had one before and the battery on it was purely ridiculous -so rubbish that after charging, the battery would be on a low level within a day. The Revolution MX has four distinct, new features that could very well change how we navigate through files and programs - so it just makes our lives so much more easier... Logitech goes so far as to bill the MX as "the world's most advanced mouse." Logitech made a big splash after being the first to market a laser mouse, the MX1000. Today, Logitech makes amazing products with the release of two new high-end mice-the MX Revolution Cordless Laser Mouse and the VX Revolution Cordless Laser Mouse for Notebooks. These designs are so sleek and nifty; you just have to get one of these mice... So the features ...

*~*~*Walk the Line*~*~*

Walk The Line (DVD) º¤ø,¸¸,ø¤º°`°º¤ ø,¸¸,ø¤º Walk The Line º¤ø,¸¸,ø¤º°`°º¤ This is a great film for all those people who are into their music, and in particular, jazz and blues, and rock and roll. This film is based on a true event and is the story of Johnny Cash.....(as i am sure you have all heard of but if you haven't, he was a rock and roll singer and song writer back in the 1960's) º¤ø,¸¸,ø¤º°`°º¤ ø,¸¸,ø¤º A Bit about the Film:º¤ø,¸¸,ø¤º°`°º ¤ Guidance Rating: 12 A bit about the Director and Producers: Well the director for this stunning film was James Mangold and the producers were James Keach and Kathy Conrad. I think a special thanks should go to them for creating such a unique film as the majority of people simply watch the films without paying any attention to these important people who made it all happen. Genre of the film: Drama/ Historical Duration of the Film: 2 hours 4 minutes Actors: These were an awesome set of actors for this film: This film wouldn't have been the same without these two: Joaquin Phoenix - who played the role of Johnny Cash. & Reese Witherspoon - who played the role of June Carter. And i'm sure you all know who she is: she's probably most famous for playing the main role of the blonde in Legally Blonde 1 & 2. And i think her accent in the film was great - i wonder how she did it for an entire film? i know i couldn't.... Reese Wehterspoon also won the: ***BAFTA for Best Actress 2005*** & ***OSCAR for Best ...

Moulin Rouge (+CD) (DVD) 03/09/2006

Lets put the ROUGE back into the MOULIN..........

Moulin Rouge (+CD) (DVD) Here's a review i wrote a while ago, i thought i'd upload it: Hope you like it! Baz Luhrmann's Moulin Rouge A movie, like you have never seen before. This is a magnificent, heartrending, romantic musical, testing love to its maximum limits. The brand-spanking new Moulin Rouge is a fantastic depiction of love, presented by Fox Studios. Exclusive soundtracks accompanied by outstanding soprano and tenor vocals from Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor give a blast of excitement to this musical. The Moulin Rouge is produced and directed by Baz Luhrmann, who is also the former director of the all - popular Shakespearian Romeo and Juliet. If Kidman dueting with McGregor isn't adequate - then how about the out of the blue cameo appearance of Kylie Minogue; singing as a green fairy? It's an all - tragic dramatic tale of romance that made me realise there are no limits to love. And even heartbreak ends up leading to an even stronger bond. It is not quite reminiscent of a live Broadway musical, but if you found "Greece" and "Chicago" compelling, Moulin Rouge is an addition to this exquisite selection. With more exhilaration, thrills and twists, you could even say Luhrmann's movie is visually opulent, funny and the flawless cast without a doubt reinvent the ethnicity of blue époque Paris with magical realism. Set in Paris 1899, the Moulin Rouge highlights the magic of summer love. A young, audacious, gifted writer called Christian (Ewan McGregor) departs for Montmarte, ...

With a computer like this you can't go wrong - especially when Apple have specifically made a 30inch cinema display which is just simply breathtaking. You are all probably thinking this is amazing but just wait until you see the specifications on this beauty - your jaw will drop right down to the floor as did mine. I don't really understand specifications fully as I am sure the majority of you don't either but I do my best to translate that foreign language.

Apple Power adapter (M9837B/A) 01/09/2006

~~~~The All Forgotten Power Adapter~~~~

Apple Power adapter (M9837B/A) ~~~~The All Forgotten Power Adapter~~~~ Hey all, i thought i would write a review seen as though i haven't in a while and i thought that this particular item needed a review. Well it is basically a power adapter for use with all of the famous iPODS that everybody seems to have. And it is so unbelievably convenient for charging them, whether you are at home, on the road, or whenever your iPod is not connected to a computer. All you have to do is simply plug the adapter into a wall outlet and connect to your iPod for recharging - and it is quite quick as well. This adapter is compatible with the following if you are unsure: ~~~~~iPod shuffle ~~~~~iPod nano ~~~~~iPod mini ~~~~~iPod with color display ~~~~~iPod with video This should be the first thing you need to buy for your iPod - whatever model it is. It's the greatest, and it charges far more faster than when you plug it into your computer. For great compatibility, you can pull out the plug in the corner and replace it with the ones from different countries - how fantastic is that? I really thing that apple should have included this charger with every iPOD that you buy... It is so much more better - although i have to warn you that it doesn't come with a chord for some odd reason but can be easily bought for a low price.... Time for the price of this: Well, i did say it was a bit pricy for an adapter and it can be bought for approximately a minimum of £17 in most shops which is ...

Goa (India) 18/07/2006

~*GOA*~ Gorgeous Or Amazing?

Goa (India) ~*GOA*~ Gorgeous Or Amazing? Goa - the land of all natural beauty. Somewhere where you can just escape to and feel like you've left the planet. A holiday which once you embark upon will be totally unforgettable. A great luxury five star experience awaits you at the rich sandy beaches looking out at the far horizon sitting above the tranquil Indian Ocean. There was so much to do and so much to experience yet only four days to do so. This is my experience… Well it was in the middle of February when we set off out to Goa, and unfortunately we had to catch a flight from Mumbai to Goa, and for those of you that know Mumbai will realise that traffic in London doesn't even compare to that of traffic in Mumbai. But an unpleasant experience it was catching a plane from Mumbai. It was a mini jet flight and probably held no more than two passengers and it was quite funny because it was me and my family's fault that the plane's departure time was delayed by forty minutes because we paid no attention to the loud speaker callings made out to us whilst sitting in the airport. Well anyway, flights from Mumbai were horrendous! They were some of the worst planes ever: The one I was sat on…well…where do I start? Cramped legs, and hardly any room to breath but before departure, the kind hostesses gave us a refresher towel and a mango juice drink - something I love about India is that there's so many mangos and the best time to eat them is when they are fully orange ripe. The plane got ...

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W70S 13/07/2006

*Stunning 7.2 Megapixels*

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W70S º¤ø,¸¸,ø¤º°`°º¤ ø,¸¸,ø¤ºSony Cyber-shot DSC-W70º¤ø,¸¸,ø¤º°`°º¤ Well Sony certainly do have one of the best reputations globally and produce some of the most greatest electrical products form camcorders, digital camera, televisions, DVD players etc. And this is one of the newest model of their Cybershot range. A stunning 7.2 megapixel camera which is incredibly thin to say it has that much of a good quality. It's so unbelievably easy taking photos as well, even if your taking photographs for fun or whether that's the begginning of a new career, this camera suits all. º¤ø,¸¸,ø¤º°`°º¤ ø,¸¸,ø¤ºOVERVIEW¤ø,¸¸,ø¤º°`°º¤ It's great because you don't have to spend ages changing the settings on the camera each time you take a different photograph. This W70 has an updated traditional camera style with an eye level view finder and a huge 2.5-inch LCD screen which is much bigger than other cameras where you would only expect to see a 2 inch screen or something as little as a 1.5 inch screen. The camera, like all the other digital cam's from the cybershot range all have a Carl Zeis lens which in this case is named a Vario-Tessar lens - With it's stunning 3x optical zoom, you can't really go wrong with this camera. It has 6x digital zoom which is great but remember when you are looking to buy a camera, you should pay no attention to the digital zoom as the optical zoom is by far the most important. It has a Movie recording mode which is actaully really decent quality but ...

Jack And The Beanstalk - The Real Story (DVD) 12/07/2006

Jack and the Beanstalk - THE REAL STORY 2001

Jack And The Beanstalk - The Real Story (DVD) ~:∞:~:∞:~:∞:~:∞:~ JACK AND THE BEANSTALK: THE REAL STORY (2001) ~:∞:~:∞:~:∞:~:∞:~ This is an imaginative production on the traditional Jack and the Beanstalk story. While it was made for young kids, the story maintains adequate complexity to keep adults interested. But it really is something worth watching - it sure does have an unusual ending. Starring Richard Attenborough, Matthew Modine, Vanessa Redgrave, Mia Sara, Daryl Hannah and many more - together they have certainly produced a fantastic film for us to watch. Although these actors aren't famous as say- people like Jennifer Aniston, Cameron Diaz or Brad Pitt or anyone like that, it sure is a great film. This astounding movie is directed by Brian Henson who funnily enough directed a lot of the "Muppets" movies: Muppets from space, It's a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie, Muppets Party Cruise and The Muppets' Wizard of Oz. Well how could we describe the genre of this movie? I think it's definitely a drama and adventure film but more obviously a fairy tale! Matthew Modine plays the role of Jack Robinson, who is a very wealthy businessman and has no time for anything other than work, yet he doesn't realise that he is about to face the family curse where no man in the Robinson line lives past the age of thirty. Prior to his birthday, he stumbles across the remains of a giant's skeleton as well as someone who claimed to know the giant. He meets a woman (Mia ...

Canon CanoScan LiDE 25 06/07/2006

Must Read - £35 Canon Scanner

Canon CanoScan LiDE 25 º¤ø,¸¸,ø¤º°`°º¤ ø,¸¸,ø¤ºCanon CanoScan LiDE 25º¤ø,¸¸,ø¤º°`°º¤ Are you in need of a good quality scanner and can't really afford it? Well here's your solution: This great Canon scanner scans good quality images and yet it is not expensive at all, and is suitable for both Windows and Mac users. You're probably wandering what the catch is, and you're right there is one. This scanner is relatively slow at scanning images into the computer - and that is all - that's the catch. Pathetic really, when you think about it. The preview scan time takes approximately 16 seconds so a normal scan, depending on what resolution you've got it on should take from anything from 30 seconds. Now some people think this is really slow, but in fact it isn't really. Half a minute? Almost no time at all. Although, half a minute at 300dpi resolution, but if you want a 600dpi resolution picture, then the time may shoot upto anything between one and three minutes although, it's not as if you have to wait half an hour for one scan, and i always use my scanner at 300dpi for photos, and even less resolution for text. I recommend this scanner because it is a great price and great quality although i don't think you should buy it if you are an impatient person. Canon is a well known adn respectable company and i would never expect them to bring out a rubbish product so you can totally rely on them. This scanner is awesome - hardly take up and room at all on my computer desk and it's a flatbed ...

Compaq iPAQ Pocket PC H3950 º¤ø,¸¸,ø¤º°`°º¤ ø,¸¸,ø¤ºHP iPAQ Pocket PC H3950 º¤ø,¸¸,ø¤º°`° This is a great handheld pocket PC and what's more, you can carry it around with you wherever you go. Just think of all of the things you can do with a compact computer at the palm of your hands. Write documents and notes when you need to, particularly great when organising your life to put it simpler. I mean, it's far better then a diary because if you're anything like me, you probably end up misplacing your diary and I wouldn't dare think of losing my pocket PC. You can easily access the internet from wherever you are, if you need to look up tube/train times at last minute, you can. If you perhaps want to just research something at a particular moment for example in a pub quiz - I'm not saying you should cheat at pub quizzes or anything - well they're easy anyway. But what's more, you can check your email regularly without having the hassle of turning on your home computer when you've got this simple handheld PC at your fingertips. If your cooking dinner and want to access the web, in the car and waiting for an urgent email, or whether that's typing up your homework for all you teens out there. Want to watch movies and listen to music? Well you can do that too! Just think of all the things that this awesome gadget could replace: no need to carry a diary, a pen or notebook, no need for an MP3 player or iPod, and no need to carry a laptop around with you everywhere, if you do. And how could I possibly forget, ...

It's picture quality is astounding when capturing those precious memories you'd like to keep and even when taking photographs with this. The lens has a massive 25x optical zoom lens, which really is incredible, Widescreen high resolution recording and 2.7-inch Widescreen LCD display panel. This DC100 model is really easy to use and in particular suits those people who are just starting out at filming- whether that's a career or you're recording proffesional home videeos. And it is at such an affordable price and can be bought as little as £275. º¤ø,¸¸,ø¤º°`°º¤ ø,¸¸,ø¤º*RECORDING*º¤ø,¸¸,ø¤º°`°º ¤ The camcorder records directly onto DVD which is great because it means you can isert the disk into a DVD player and watch it straight away on your television set.

Apple iPod nano MA352FB/A 1 GB First Generation 30/06/2006

iPOD nano's rock!

Apple iPod nano MA352FB/A 1 GB First Generation "Hehe......COOL, cheaper than the 2GB and still holds all my favourite songs" *MY STORY* Well i bought my iPOD nano from abroad, obviously because i got some discount and of course i was shopping at the duty free area of the airport. Well i bought the iPod nano but what use was it to me if i had no songs on them? Well i came home and it appeared that after leaving my computer turned off for so long, it didn't work......No computer to charge my iPOD, no computer to transfer songs onto it and no internet to download any more songs..............make sure you have a PC that works. I received my iPOD in a compact box with the iPOD, ear phones with black soft cushion ear buds. I also received a case which does wonders and stops my iPOD nano from scratching or getting dirty. I also received a USB cable which is also used for charging and a dock adaptor. Also included was a Cd containing the software iTUNES which is perfect for transfering songs and pictures from your computer to your nano. It's really easy to use, and is available for both Apple Mac and Windows. The battery life is an incredible 14 hours which is pretty good in comparison with my previous mp3 player which lasted a mere 6 hours which is less than half of what the nano can last for. There are numerous things you can do on yuor iPOD nano whilst listening to music at the same time. Such as go through your photo collection, maybe by creating a slideshow. Or you might want to play games. You ...
