There's nothing like having surround sound, whether it be for gaming or for movie watching.

The Laser 5.1 Home Theatre Speakers seem rather impressive and are screamingly good value for money. How much do 5.1 speaker systems cost? A whole heck of a lot more than this one! Perfect for gaming and watching movies on the PeeCee without breaking the bank.

Well known Director, George Lucas, famous for producing the Star Wares saga, developed a sound qualifying standard known as 'THX'. George Lucas is fussy, to say the least, when it comes to high quality, absorbing surround sound. So when a speaker system is marked with a THX certification, it simply means they rock!!! Quality is assured! The MX5021 speaker system packs a whopping 90 Watts RMS, with the sub-woofer rated at 50Watts and the satellite speakers 20Watts each. Sound blasted from these puppies will fill a relatively small room with ease! Not only are they loud, but the quality is high and crisp. The satelite speakers are magnetically shielded, meaning they can sit next to your TV or computer monitor without interfering. However the subwoofer is not shielded. This isn't really a problem, as it rarely sits near the monitor.
Appearance is sleek and attractive to the eye, with a compact control pod to alter the sound settings. With it's remote control, you have total freedom. Given many people are incorporating their computer and home cinema entertainment systems, the Altec Lansing MX5021 speaker system is an extremely attractive and affordable option. Whether it be listening to your favourite music, watching action-packed DVD movies, or blowing away your enemies with 3Dshooter games, the MX5021's will immerse you into another world!

* Wireless Remote and Control Pod - Control of bass, treble, and master volume levels is at your fingertips with both the wireless remote and the control pod. Just sit back and enjoy!

But then again, we have to accept that in life, there are choices. Choices, such as Kim Beazley and that Latham dude, that there is more to life than Apple Apple Apple. There are people out there that don't want an iPod and can't stand the fact that there are walking clones who own iPods. There other people who can't afford the hundreds of dollars required to buy an iPod. Well, there is a new player that came totally out of left field: Verbatim.

Now they have released their own USB flash drive and MP3 player range. The Verbatim USB MP3 Player 512MB is your no-frills MP3/WMA player, that also includes an FM radio.

This is where the Apple iPod Camera Connector comes in. Similar to the Belkin iPod Media Reader, however it does not require you to take out your media card. It's so simple - you just plug your camera in with your camera's USB cable and then voila. Transferred! How useful is that? Especially at Disneyland!
I was just thinking - it's amazing how many different ways you can transfer data from one device to another. I know some of you are thinking "oh no, not ANOTHER one" - but this has style. And it's small. And it's made by Apple. How could anyone go wrong?
Actually, don't answer that. Thank you.

I have not not written in you for so long, since yesterday in fact. Which seems like eons ago in this age of high-speed, high-powered, coffee-laden work days. I wish to complain about the fact that I am always out and about, and never home, where power points await me. Yet, despite this inconvenience, I still have to be able to do more in increasingly less time. I don't have the luxury nor inclination to take a heavy laptop with me whenever I go Safari (teehee, that's the name of my web browser) and take beautiful landscape snapshots and close-ups of ferocious lions and tigers. Now, I just heard that these guys at Mr.Gadget are selling the Belkin Media Reader for iPod with Dock Connector which can solve all of life's little problems, such as world poverty, the war in Iraq, I mean, the world just makes me so angry. Oh wait, I guess it can't cure AIDS. But it does mean that I can transfer the photos on my iPod whenever my camera's memory card gets full. And I really hate it when it happens. Especially when it happened to me at Disneyland. Most people carry their iPods around with them wherever they go. What an awesome idea. I think I'll get one tomorrow at Mr.Gadget.
Adieu, till next time.

I'm talking more about computers. The latest processors, the latest screamingly fast video cards and wireless network speeds going through the roof. However, as great as wireless is (and will be), wired Ethernet is still the way to go if high performance and security are crucial. Currently, most wireless access points top out at around 54-108Mbps. However, there is still some way to go before it reaches Gigabit (1000Mbps) speeds which Gigabit Ethernet can facilitate. In fact, Gigabit Ethernet is fast enough that one can use multiple computers as processing nodes in audio production applications, such as Apple Logic Pro.
However, most of us have mission-critical networks within a workgroup or business. The Linksys SD2008 8-Port 10/100/1000 Gigabit Switch is what we use at Mr.Gadget because of its outstanding performance, value for money and Linksys's reputation for building bulletproof hardware. We've been using it for a little while now and the network is noticeably faster, more reliable and because it's an intelligent non-blocking switch, there are no bandwidth issues as there are when sharing a wireless network between multiple computers.
Features of the Linksys SD2008 8-Port 10/100/1000 Gigabit Switch
• Eight 10/100/1000Mbps, half/full duplex, switched ports
• Forwards and filters packets at non-blocking, full wire speed
• All ports have auto speed negotiation and auto MDI/MDI-X crossover detection
• Linksys reliability and limited lifetime warranty

However in purchasing a DVD recorder, whether it be for the home PC or the living room, one has a multitude of recording discs to choose from. Which one do you go for??? DVD-R, DVD+R... what do the '-' and '+' mean anyway??? Then there's DVD+RW and DVD-RW, not to mention DVD-RAM!!! Choices, choices, choices!!! Well let's very briefly look at each format so that we can be better informed when going to purchase our DVD media.
DVD-R: This media is equivalent to CD-R, except given the DVD format, you can store up to 4.7GB instead of 800MB. Quite handy actually. Data can only be recorded once. They can be used to record movies and will work on most modern, commercial DVD players. However there may be issues with older models.
DVD+R: As with the DVD-R formats, DVD+R can be used to record movies and watched on most commercial DVD players. Whilst having similar characteristics to DVD-R in terms of storage capacity and a one-time recording capability, they can only be recorded in DVD+R recorders. Likewise, DVD-R DVD's can only be recorded in DVD-R recorders. So you need to make sure you know the specifications of your machine when choosing the DVD's.
DVD-RW: This is the re-writable or re-recordable version of the DVD-R DVD formats. So you have the option of recording on these DVD's a number of times. There is one catch though. You need to re-format the DVD before recording again. That means everything that was on the DVD will be wiped off. DVD-RW recorders will usually record DVD-R, CD-R and CD-RW media. These formats can be viewed in most modern day commercial DVD players but will have trouble in older machines.
DVD+RW: These are... you guessed it... the re-recordable versions of the DVD+R media. Only the newest DVD players will play movies that are recorded using this format and the same goes for these DVD's as the DVD-RW in terms of storage capacity and compatibility with only DVD+RW machines. It's good to note that some DVD recorders can record in DVD-RW and DVD+RW formats, making them more attractive and versatile.
DVD-RAM: These media are found in 2.6, 4.7, 5.2 and a whopping 9.4GB capacity! It's re-recordable and works like CD-RW media. They not compatible with commercial DVD-ROM and DVD players. They need a DVD-RAM player to run. However the advantage is that they can be re-recorded on a number of times more than DVD-R media - 100,000 times as opposed to the much smaller 1,000 times!
So there's a brief overview of some of the DVD recordable media out there. The main thing to remember is to check the specs of your machine to ensure it is compatible with the specified DVD media. Now let's go and make the most of this exciting technology!!

Well, spending a week Sydney was great and all, but of course, I really missed working at Mr.Gadget, putting up wacky blogs and responding to angry customer emails. So, here we are, back to the daily grin...I mean, daily fun!
Have any of you watched these really cool detective movies, where they take their detective notes onto a little dictaphone? You know, on a rainy day, wearing a beige trenchcoat and bowler hat covertly talking into a dictaphone hidden inside their trenchcoat - "January 9, 2006 outside 14 Bolitho Street, Sunshine. I have seen the elusive Mr.Gadget walk in looking rather suspicious. I don't know why, but I will investigate." And then the detective mysteriously disappears...oooo...mysterious.
Well, it's taken a while for the dictaphone-making companies to realise it's the 21st century and that tapes are now obsolete. Not only do they have a limited recording time (most tapes are less than 60 minutes long), the recorded sound on tape isn't fantastic and it's a pain to have to keep changing tapes.
Well, Sony have realised that, since MP3 players nowadays use flash memory to store hours and hours of music, why not dictaphones? What a grand idea.
The Sony ICDB100 Digital Notetaker 16MB can store up to 8 hours of digital recording, thanks to Sony's compression technology. And thanks to its tape-less storage, soundbits can be tagged and replayed without the rewind/fast-forward hassle of tape. All at an inexpensive price for a dictaphone.
Features of the Sony ICDB100 Digital Notetaker 16MB
- Slim design
- 16MB Capacity for up to 8 hours of continuous recording
- 3 Message folders
- Up to 99 messages per folder
- VOR (Voice operated recording)
- Easy Search
- Easy Editing
- Repeat/ Auto Scan play

Computer temperature will increase when it's being worked harder. For example if you make a habit of overclocking your CPU or playing power-hungry gaming software, your PC temperature will increase due to your hardware working overtime to keep up with your demands. As a result you need to have higher fan speeds to counteract this unwanted heat. However one does not always play games and therefore the fans don't need to be blasting away all the time. With the Cooler Master Aerogate I Fan Controller you can control up to four internal fans (both CPU and case fans) to meet your performance needs.
