Windows 8 Review

The biggest change in computing starts now.  And no Apple isn’t the one revolutionizing it.  Sure some might argue the iPad is inspiring it, but they are wrong.  Windows 8 is the opposite of the iPad.  Windows 8 is the long held idea from Microsoft that the PC is king and that experiences should add and not subtract.

My iPhone Experience

The iPhone came out in 2007 amidst a lot of hype.  I asked back then if the iPhone was revolutionary.  It certainly had its failures in key aspects as noted in my article, but Apple has improved upon the original and is now on its 3rd iPhone and 3rd version of the iPhone software.  So I picked up an original iPhone with version 3.0 software to review.   Here is my experience.

MacBook 2.0 Ghz review

The 2.0 Unibody Macbook is equipped with a 2.0 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 2GB of RAM.   It also has a 160GB HDD and 13" LED backlit screen. It lacks the backlit keyboard that its faster 2.4 Ghz cousin has.


The TyTN II (AT&T Tilt) is a Windows Mobile based smartphone from HTC.  It is impressively equipped and features stunning features.  It competes directly against other Windows Mobile smartphones, Symbian devices such as the Nokia N95, and devices such as the Apple iPhone.  However, for those who want a wide variety of features it is arguably the best phone available.

Insignia IS-HTIB102732 DVD Home Theatre

The first thing that caught my mind about the Insignia IS-HTIB102732 was the price!  The Insignia IS-HTIB102732 is a 5 disc DVD/CD/MP3 Player with 7 speakers pumping up to 1000W into your room.  It also includes the ability to insert an SD/MMC directly into the player to play WMAs, MP3s, and even display JPEG Photos.  Lastly, for those of us who listen to the radio, included is an FM/AM Tuner!   You will other Home Theatre Systems without the features for a higher price!

Insignia IS-LCDTV32 LCD TV

The Insignia IS-LCDTV32 is a Liquid Crystal Display TV that is HD Ready with an high WXGA Resolution.  At the lower end of the price scale, I found this totally black television to be stylish.  In store comparisons on picture quality promoted me to purchase this TV.  I had previously owned another LCD TV, that worked well except it was not High Definition (HD) nor did it handle dark scenes well.  This was very important to me, as well as the price.
