Today I picked up the 2009 Lincoln MKX an elegant SUV which is the envy of all my neighbors. They take pride in the fact that I have to return it.
Some of you are probably wondering, why I have had 3 cars to review over the past month and well to be honest the subscription for the Sirius Sat Radio had expired on the cars and I was unable to test out the Travel Link Feature and Ford wanted me to try it out. I of course wanted to test another car out so I agreed to try out the Sirius Travel Link Feature.
Black Friday is almost here, and while the economy is bad and people are fearing a recession, everyone loves and is still looking forward to black Friday. Who wouldn’t? After all when can you get stuff for dirt cheap.
The best deals of the year are on black Friday oh and people don’t just love Black Fridaysfor the deal they also love it because it’s fun to go out to a mall the day after thanks giving. But there are some of us hard core computer geeks who would rather wait for Cyber Monday.
Today Dell and at&t wireless announced the availability of the Dell Inspiron Mini 9 with at&t mobile broadband.
Users can order the Mini 9 with mobile broadband directly from Dell. The Mini 9 with at&t mobile broadband will run you an extra $125 dollars but will come with a $120 mail in rebate when you sign up for at&t’s wireless broadband for 2 years. So yes you have to sign a contract.
Last week Radiris and I had the pleasure of testing out the 2009 Ford Flex which we returned a day late to ford. While Radiris will have a more extensive review in the coming days I wanted to share with you guys a video we made of our selves testing out the phone feature.
Pardon the video quality as it was shot with a point and shoot camera.
Gamers know that every little bit of processing power they can get out of their system may improve their gaming experience just enough to make it to the next level. So many including my self have disable their anti virus software while playing games.
I disable it to get back that memory and CPU power the anti virus software is using, others disable it because getting an alert during game play can ruin any mission they may be on. But with so many games on-line you start to put your system at risk when you disable your anti-virus, and I for one have noticed that the major security software makers have trimmed down enough on the bloat that you can run it while playing a game.
This review is a bit overdue, it was meant to be posted early October but for some reason it got stuck in the queue and I am posting it now.
HP recently made available the HP Elitebook 2730Pp upgrade to the HP Compaq 2710p which in my opinion was one of the best tablet PC’s ever made available. I personally did not think it could get any better I loved the light, the built in business card reader. I thought the HP Compaq 2710p was great and could not get any better.
But the 2710p had it’s flaws, it did not have a touchpad and a lot of people diliked that, also when you removed the stylus from the holder it often times launched out like a projectile, some people also wished it had a scroll wheel on the side so that they could scroll through webpages and documents while in tablet mode easily.
About 3 weeks ago I got my hands on the Startech 4-in-1 VGA USB Docking Station, a nice looking USB hub, VGA port and sound card. I say nice looking because it’s slim and black and matches the rest of my system, it’s also very easy to hide.
In a day and age where most people use their USB ports not only as a place to plug in their peripherals but a place to charge their phones, bluetooth headsets etc. Six USB ports on the back of the computer just isn’t enough anymore. So products like the Startech 4-in-1 VGA USB Docking Station will give you those extra USB ports.
Turn on your Xbox 360 and download the update, need I say more???????
Today HP has introduced the Touchsmart tx2 the first convertible notebook pc with Multi-touch technology. Meaning you can touch the screen with more than one finger at a time and it will register all fingers.
With a similar design and feel to the HP tx2000, the Touchsmart tx2 has a new paint job and other slight differences. For example the finger print reader is now on the right side of the screen and some buttons that were located on the monitors backside have been removed. Also the LED colors for some buttons have been changed from Blue to White.
And now for something completely different:
“I’m recording this message so that if I don’t make it, at least somebody- anybody who finds it will have an idea of what the hell they’ll face getting through this nightmare. Our original party was four: Bill, Francis, Zoey, and me, Louis. We were trying to make it to the top of Mercy Hospital, but I’m the only one left, and I don’t know if I can do this alone. Bill was the first to go. We had just cleared a horde of zombies and he stopped to patch himself up while the rest of us went ahead a bit to scout…a muffled scream was the only warning we had. By the time I blew the smoker’s head off its tongue had already crushed his windpipe. Zoey was next…she was a cute little thing. A boomer threw up nasty green liquid all over her and a hunter shredded her before Francis and I could clear the mass of Infected from around her. We made it into the subway tunnels alright, but Francis ran off into the dark when he heard a woman sobbing…thought it might be another survivor. I heard the Witch scream, but I didn’t turn around. Wait, I can see a heavy metal door at the top of this room…it’s a safehouse! I might actually.*thud thud thud thud*..wait…what’s that rumbli- Oh God noit’saTanknonoNONONO *ROOOOOOOOAR* *gunfire* *crunch crunch crunch*” – Audio recovered from a mangled tape recorder by unidentifiable remains.
Hit the jump for more prose and less agony.
