Okay, hands up if you like to play pranks with laser pointers? Well, Mark likes to tease cats with them. Point them at a wall and watch the cat fly!
But these cigar-shaped laser pointers are everywhere and are rather, well, boring and generic. I like to be a little bit different. Since my iPod is my trusty companion everywhere I go, I already have a ready power supply with me. And if I am feeling particularly bored, I just hook up the laser pointer from the Griffin iBeams Laser Pointer And Flashlight For iPod or iPod Mini
to my iPod to distract the class by pointing it at the blackboard and making funny shapes while the lecturer is speaking. And if I need to bash my way through forests in the dead of night, I can just use the flashlight. No more bumping into poison ivy! The Griffin iBeams also come with keychain attachments so if ever you're in need of a laser pointer, you will always have one handy!
P.S. Do not aim at planes. I've seen a CSI episode where a guy with a laser pointer caused a plane crash.Order your Griffin iBeams Laser Pointer And Flashlight For iPod or iPod Mini here at Mr.Gadget Australia today!
Back in the day when "state-of-the-art computer" meant Amiga or Commodore 64, PC storage was either non-existent or limited to MB. Yes that's Megabytes. Today a typical low end PC will come standard with a 40GB (yes that's Gigabyte) hard drive. But in our storage hungry society even this isn't enough. Fortunately extra storage, though they don't grow on trees, won't cost you an arm and a leg. And for those "daring" enough to create their own extra storage, the bottom line dollar could well be a lot lower than what you would pay for an all in one external case with a pre-installed hard drive.
The Laser 3.5 inch USB 2.0 & Firewire External Case with Stand
, is an inexpensive external case. So if you already have a spare 3.5 inch hard drive, just slap it in this case and away you go. With it's USB 2.0 and Firewire connections, this case is not only ideal for PC's but also for Mac's. Great for storing those large files or a backup of your system!Features of the Laser 3.5 inch USB 2.0 & Firewire External Case with Stand:
- Connect 3.5" IDE/ATAPI type hard drive to your computers via USB port

A few months ago I had the privilege... nay, the pleasure of getting up close and personal with the Archos AV400. So when time came for us to depart from each other's company, my colleagues almost had to pry it out of my cold dead fingers, so to speak. Good thing it didn't come to that. This time around, I was kept away and limited to just pictures and print media of the new Archos AV700 Mobile Digital Video Recorder.
And with the features of this unit, i'd say that was the smartest thing to do!
With on the fly recording and compression of video files and its huge storage space (either 40GB or 100GB model) those long trips will seem much shorter. The Archos AV700 can also be fitted with accessories (sold separately) to fit and function in your car without any major surgery done to your interior. When you're done showing the relo's your family movies, you can move on and show them those holiday snaps because the AV700 handles these with ease. The MP3 playback capability of this unit completes this portable media centre. Did I hear the faint cry of iPod or was that just gas?Features of the Archos AV700 Mobile Digital Video Recorder:
Record directly from TV
After installing the TV docking pod in a one-time set-up operation, record directly television programs, movies and home videos directly from your TV, VCR, DVD player, cable box or satellite receiver (PAL & NTSC) ... and watch on the go!

Easily organize songs with the enhanced ARCLibrary and customize your view by artist, album, type of music, title, year, and play lists without having to use a computer. The AV 700 also offers an audio recording application to record (encoding in real time) in WAV (PCM or ADPCM), from almost all analog stereo sources. You can also use the stereo microphone if you want to record notes to yourself for easy access later.Photo wallet
The AV 700 acts as a great digital photo companion accessory. Transfer up to one million photos1 directly from your digital camera, from another mass storage device using the built-in USB host connection, or from a computer using the high-speed USB 2.0 interface. Organize photos and watch them in slideshows on the AV 700 screen or any external display.Connectivity

Using the high-speed USB 2.0 interface, the AV 700 will easily auto-synchronize this content with Windows Media Player 10 each time you connect it to your PC, or convert your Windows Media Player 10 library content to one of the many compatible formats (MP3, WMA, WAV, protected WMA, MPEG-4, WMV and protected Windows Media Video).Order your Archos AV700 100GB or 40GB Mobile Digital Video Recorder here at Mr.Gadget Australia today!
Microsoft is preparing their latest arsenal of mice and keyboards for the 2005 showdown with Logitech's latest G-series, consisting of G5, G7 and G15. Among the new devices, the Laser Mouse 6000
(US$60), Notebook Optical Mouse 3000 and Ergonomic 4000 Keyboard caught our attention.
The 6000, being a high-sensitivity USB mouse, is obviously targeting at the similarly-configured G5. Though, it seems to lack G5's unique 'weight cartridges' and 'gaming feet'.
The Optical Mouse 3000
(US$30) is luring lappy owners with a Nike shoe-lookalike shell in that it is encased mostly with rubber. There's also a magnification thumb button, a real bonus for users of the smaller 12" laptops out there.Last but not least is the Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 (US$55). The wired USB spilt keyboard separates both sides with a 14-degree gap, complete with a 7-degree wrist rest. Additional features include a zoom slider and a bunch of other programmable buttons.
According to various sources, these devices are set to launch in early September.
Do you drive long distances? Are you sick of the hassle and potential safety hazard of manually changing CDs? Tired of the same, boring old dross on the radio? Got an iPod with hours and hours of music that you just want to listen to while on the move?
Well, it's about time that Mr.Gadget is finally offering the Griffin iTrip iPod FM Transmitter!
I own one of these babies and let me say, the iTrip saves me from falling asleep on the Western Ring Road! And in conjunction with the XtremeMac iPod Car Charger
I can listen to my Enrique Iglesias and Britney Spears in the privacy of my own car and without the hassle of unsightly cables!Look Ma! No wires! Astound your friends!
Thanks to the magic that is FM radio, the iTrip converts your iPod music for playback through your car radio. You can select any available frequency from 88.1 - 107.9 MHz. Britney never sounded so gorgeous!Features of the Griffin iTrip iPod FM Transmitter:Any station you choose - digitally
The iTrip allows you to select from over 100 stations, which means you can always find an open band no matter how many radio stations are in your area. You can choose any station, not just the '4 stations' typically found on other devices.Just say 'NO' to drift
Digital tuning in iTrip also means the signal doesn't "drift." Other products use analog circuitry, which allows the signal to drift over time. But not iTrip. Digital tuning means no drift.Power to go
The iTrip is also more powerful than competing products, providing a significantly more powerful signal. Although the transmission range will vary depending on your area and receiving radio, iTrip has been used at some pretty amazing distances.Order your Griffin iTrip iPod FM Transmitter here at Mr.Gadget Australia today.

I've tried at least 10 different bluetooth headsets over the last year and I must say that mobile bluetooth headsets are generally getting better. Longer battery life, vibration alert, caller-ID display and even inbuilt ringtones are fast becoming the norm. However while it seems that every Tom, Dick and Harry is trying to come up with their own bluetooth headset the only brands that I would recommend that you pay attention to are Nokia
, Sony Ericsson
- trust me don't bother with unknown brands or el cheapo headsets; you'll just be disappointed.
Speaking of bluetooth headsets, I've just had the privilege of testing out the award winning, brand spanking new Blueant x3 Micro Bluetooth Headset
. First of all, kudos to Blueant Australia for bringing in this very cool gadget down under!
First impressions? Tiny, ultra light, chic design, blue flashing lights - I like blue flashing lights!
Setup was as easy as I anticipated. Again, like with many other Blueant gadgets, I did not even need to read the manual to pair it up with my XDA IIi - I just pushed what was very obviously the power button, held the power button down together with the volume up button, waited for the blue and red lights to flash, input the pair code (1234) and wham!
One of the best features of the Blueant x3 Micro
is all the goodies you get with it! I was surprised to find steak knives and the kitchen sink missing:
- One Bluetooth Blueant x3 Micro headset.
- One USB charging cable.
- One user guide.
- One AC wall charger
- One car lighter adapter for USB charging cable.
- One soft gel earbud cover
- Two foam earbud covers
- One removable ear-hook.
See what I mean?
Even though you can just pop it into your ear without any other attachments, I have opted to use the ear-hook for that extra snug fit. It sits very well on my ear and is unobstrusive enough to go mostly unnoticed in shopping centres, banks and other public domains (or maybe people were just being polite?).
Took it with me on a bike road this morning and had someone comment on how clear the voice conversation was. The Blueant x3 Micro
is definitely less cracklier than other bluetooth headsets I've had. When you use it in conjunction with MSN Messenger, sound quality is also acceptable - not as good as when using with mobile device but satisfactory.
All-in-all a superb device and can certainly see why it won the Innovations Award 2005.
See below more details on the Blueant x3 Micro. Big thumbs up from us at Mr.Gadget!Features of Blueant X3 Micro Bluetooth Mobile Headset:

The HP iPaq HW6515 Mobile Messenger Pocket PC (what a mouthful!), is a truly mobile device. So when it comes to synchronizing and charging the device on the road, why settle for a desktop
cradle? Unless of course you have a portable desk, or you're ultra strong enough to lug one around on the road, then maybe you can settle for a desktop cradle. But for the rest of us, the solution is the HP iPaq HW6515 Sync 'n' Charge Retractable Cable
. The perfect option for those using a notebook/laptop, this cable neatly retracts for storage. And because it charges as well, that's one less charger to carry around. The cable extends to one metre in length and there is no need to install additional software. All you need is an iPaq HW6515 and a spare USB port on your laptop/notebook.

If you know me, you know that i'm a firm advocate and believer of the wireless world. I find wires annoying and... well... I just don't like 'em! So when I came in to work yesterday and the boss slapped on a pair of headphones to my head, I couldn't beleive that I was listening to music from his computer across a five meter room. Either he had headphones with an extra long cable or the Zensonic Z710 Wireless Headphones
had arrived! To prove it was the Zensonic Z710 Wireless Headphones
, I did the ultimate wireless headphone test. The "office chair spin around and see if you get tangled" test. Suffice to say, i'm here today typing this blog. A true testament that I was not entangled by the tentacles of a wired device.
The Zensonic Z710 delivers great audio. Not something one would use to monitor the next Eric Clapton or Britney Spears album in a recording studio but when chilling out to tunes, these wireless headphones have a quality that rivals even some of it's wired counterparts.
Features of the Zensonic Z710 Wireless Headphones:
-Listen to CD quality sound through ceilings and walls
-Transmitter connects to regular mini-DIN headphone socket for convenience, or to dual RCA outputs for ultimate sound quality
-Transmission won't interfere with WiFi networking

How many CD's or DVD's do you have strewn across your desk outside of their cases? Add to that all the ones in your desk drawer and the few behind the desk and if you're like me, you probably have a fair few too many optical discs gathering dust and getting scratched up all within a two metre radius of your desk! But even if you are a well organised CD collector, you know it's next to impossible to keep those CD's scratch free, especially when 'friends' keep borrowing them. In time CD's & DVD's may get too scratched up that computers and players are not able to recognize them. With the Laser DVD/CD Scratch Repair Kit
you can give new life to your CD's and DVD's. This kit will clean and repair small scratches thereby giving you a chance to make another copy or back-up of those all important files.

Wires. A big hassle and when not properly connected, can be a danger to you and your employees. Potentially an occupational health & safety disaster. Their only advantage is their speed. But what if you could unwire your network? Re-design your office or study room without the need to worry if "the cable is long enough"? Now you can with D-Link's ultra fast wireless networking gadgets! The hub of this network is the D-Link DI-624 AirPlus XtremeG 108Mbps Wireless IP Router
. From here all your networked devices can share the same broadband connection and connect with each other. Perfect for connecting all those computers for wireless LAN gaming... err wireless network sharing.
Features of the D-Link DI-624 AirPlus XtremeG 108Mbps Wireless IP Router:
The packet bursting technique puts more data into a single transmission, allowing more raw data to be stuffed into each packet and as a result not only delivers much more data, but also executes this process with less traffic on the network. Packet bursting transforms lengthy binary code into simple equations, resulting in an overall reduction in the number of 1s and 0s being sent over the network. It is also the technique defined as one of the methods for performance improvement in the IEEE 802.11e QOS draft standard.
The fast frames technique enhances data throughput by increasing the number of bits sent per data frame and accelerating the timing of a data frame with a dynamic transmit optimizations. This technology enhances the Packet Bursting capability synergistically to provide accelerated performance results. The fast frames technique is also based on the 802.11e QOS draft standard.
Hardware Compression and Encryption
XtremeG uses the Atheros AR5002 chipset which employs special engines to compress and encrypt data. These hardware engines operate in real-time to enhance throughput by implementing standard algorithms and compressing data prior to transmission and after reception.
Multi-Channel Bonding embraces two radio channels simultaneously. It collapses the available channels from 12 to 6 for increased bandwidth on the available channels. Single and double channels are not run at the same time. This technology senses single channel and dual channel frames and negotiates time-based solutions with priority on single channel processing.
Select Mode gives users the option of locking the Xtreme G products into a Static mode (instead of the default Dynamic mode) for even higher performance within a complete D-Link 108Mbps Xtreme G environment.
The D-Link 802.11g DI-624 XtremeG features robust security to protect the wireless network from intruders, complying with the latest wireless networking security protocols, including WEP encryption and Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) support for both 802.1x and WPA-PSK. The DI-624 is also capable of supporting the government-grade AES encryption and upcoming 802.11i standards.
In addition to being the industry's fastest wireless network solution, It includes management settings and policy-based content filtering for advanced network management. Filters can be set based on MAC address, IP address, URL and/or Domain Name.

From the preview shots
, Age of Empires 3
, the newest extension to Ensemble's Age of Empires series looks to be one of 2005 most antipicated PC games. Conquering the world on your computer will be more fun than ever with enhanced game play and captivating 3D and lifelike graphics; water glistens like water and metal shines like metal.
For students who are easily distracted from their scholastic duties, do NOT buy this game! Ok, buy it after exams.
A great game of strategy and history - one of my favourites!Age of Empires 3 Product Description
Age of Empires III will offer gamers the next level of realism, with advanced battle physics and unparalleled visual detail. The new game picks up where Age of Empires II: Age of Kings left off, placing gamers in the position of a European power determined to explore, colonize and conquer the New World. This time period features stunning scenes, from towering European cathedrals to courageous tribes of Native Americans, and spectacular combat with Industrial Age units like rifled infantry, cavalry and tall ships bristling with cannons.
Age of Empires 3 will once again demonstrate Ensemble Studios' reputation for excellence and innovation in the real-time strategy (RTS) genre. The game will set a new standard for visual quality and amaze players with detail never before seen in an RTS. Age of Empires III will also excite strategy gamers with new game-play elements, including the concept of a "Home City", new civilizations, units, technologies and an immersive new single-player campaign that will span three generations.New Key Features of Microsoft Age of Empires III:Tone mapping -
This photo imaging technique balances the colors in a scene on the fly. The end result is a rich, warm game where bright colors are vibrantly rendered alongside darker counterparts, such as shadows.
Lighting and shadows
- The sun is always shining in Age of Empires, so it's important that lighting and shadows be an awe-inspiring experience. Units and buildings cast shadows according to a real sun position, and even cast shadows on each other. High Dynamic Range rendering allows us to represent the shiny glints of sunlight that bounce off highly reflective surfaces.Bump and specular mapping -
Water glistens like water. Metal shines like metal. These advanced techniques serve to provide an extra level of rendering detail heretofore unseen in real-time strategy (RTS) gaming.Water
- We felt that portraying stunning, realistic water effects in the game was so important that we devoted a programmer to it full-time. You'll find the water rich with details like foam near the shore, accurately modeled water motion, flotsam in rivers and realistic water colors. Plus, reflections change with the viewing angle, the angle of sunlight and the motion of the water. The overall effect is breathtaking.Cliffs & Riverbeds -
Instead of just stretching terrain, we built a system to attach geometry to the terrain map to allow for realistic overhangs and steep cliffs, from areas like the American Southwest. This effect is supported on random maps too.Get Age of Empires 3/III from Mr.Gadget Australia!

Unless you need robust applications like Photoshop while on the road, you probably only need the basic progams to keep you going, such as Word or Excel. And with these two programs fully supported on the Pocket PC platform, the need to lug around a notebook has become obsolete.

PDA keyboards have arrived on the scene but the ones most sought after are the wireless type, either IR or bluetooth. The latter being the more reliable in terms of connection and response.

Most homes and businesses are aware of the hazards associated with leaving your computer unattended and unlocked. Electronic theives, peeping Tom's or mischeivous children come along and tamper, destroy or steal sensitive material while you're off relieving yourself or making a coffee. Die hard hackers and kids with too much time on their hands can easily find a way to get in and perform their dastardly deeds. Up until now there have been solutions to this problem but you had to be willing to pay through the nose. That is until now! The Laser Wireless USB PC Lock
is a budget conscious option which disables your PC automatically or manually when you leave.Features of the Laser Wireless USB PC Lock:
- Effective range: 2 metres
- The computer automatically enters 'Lock Mode' when the user is away from the computer by more than the effective range. The computer automatically resumes normal operation when the user is back within the effective range.
- Once the computer enters the 'Lock Mode', a password is required to use the computer if the transmitter is unavailable. If a user boots or reboots their computer, one of two things will happen: (1) If the transmitter is near the computer, then it will be automatically unlocked i.e the transmitter and PC lock are talking…no lock mode needed. (2) If the transmitter is not near (i.e an unauthorised user is trying to use the computer) then it will be locked and a password is required. Walking into range with the transmitter at this point will NOT unlock the computer, a password is still required. Furthermore, if the PC lock is removed either when the computer is on or off, the password is required.
- One transmitter can be shared with several computers.
