Samsung PL150

One of the most exciting compact cameras I have ever tested was Samsung’s ST550, with its massive 3.5-inch touchscreen and 1.5-inch front-facing screen for self-shooting (of the photographic, and not the Tyler Durden variety).

Microsoft Arc Touch

I spend enough time writing and gaming that without the most comfortable hardware for each task, my poor strained tendons, muscles and joints are going to complain.

Canon PowerShot SX130 IS

When I found you could pick up a PowerShot – one of Canon’s “performance” range of digital compact cameras – within a $300-$400 price range, I jumped at the chance to review it.

Preview: Fallout: New Vegas

Back in 2009 we gave Fallout 3 a stunning, almost-platinum 9.5/10. New Vegas is set in the same post-apocalyptic America, but with a different player-character and a new, independent storyline.

Dell U3011

I’m pretty happy with my various computing devices, especially those of the desktop variety. I have ample processing power, storage and a collection of keyboards, mice and game controllers that would put many computer stores to shame. One thin...

Casio XJ-A245

With their latest XJ-A series of data projectors, Casio have done something I’ve always thought impossible: made data projectors not just interesting, but awesome. I mean that in the traditional sense of the word: the XJ-A245 I have in the lab...

HTC 7 Trophy

My introduction to Microsoft’s new mobile platform came in the form of the HTC 7 Trophy; the gaming-orientated member of HTC’s Windows Phone 7-based range. The idea is to capitalise on WP7’s integration with Xbox LIVE, and deliver ...

Alienware M15X

Alienware has long been a name associated with high-end gaming machines, especially in the notebook domain. Extreme performance, reliability and distinctive visual designs have maintained the popularity of the brand, despite their going from ‘...

Kodak Pulse

I’ve tested many digital photo frames, and found the results pretty hit-and-miss. Some digital frames offer great feature sets, but look far too much like a fancy piece of technology: your attention should be drawn to the picture, not the fram...

Kodak Playsport

Last month we ran a roundup of pocket high-definition video cameras. One model we were really looking forward to trying was the Playsport, a waterproof offering from Kodak. Unfortunately a courier mishap kept it from appearing in the feature, but we...

IDF - Research shows SSDs boost game performance

We've looked at game-friendly hard drives before, such as Western Digital's 10,000rpm "VelociRaptor" – a high performer with a correspondingly high price tag. It's generally thought among gamers that higher-speed drives improve load t...

IDF - Chip-level VNC a massive advance in IT support

If you've ever worked in IT support, you're sure to have seen a range of remote-access solutions. From the basic Remote Assistance of Windows, to online products like LogMeIn, to enterprise-level products such as pcAnywhere, there's one extremely com...

IDF - Intel focuses on user interaction

Like most in its field, Intel has always been a feature-driven enterprise. How do you buy a processor? Clock speed. Cache size. In recent years, number of cores. Technologies like Intel's Hyper-Threading and Turbo Boost. The aim of the design and man...

HP Envy 17

The Envy 17 from HP was a late arrival in our August 2010 multimedia laptop roundup, almost missing out on the test. In the end, I’m glad it didn’t.
