Duncan Geere Cameras, Previews, Video Reviews Leave a Comment

Yesterday, Dan got to check out Canon’s PowerShot range of cameras in person in Soho. You can see his thoughts in the video above – the conclusion of which is basically “they’re alright”. His favourite was the SX200 thanks to the decent zoom, wide angle lens and fully manual operation.

At the same event, Susi got her hands on Canon’s IXUS range. I’ll have that video up momentarily.

Katherine Hannaford Mobile phones Leave a Comment


After months of secrecy, we finally have confirmation about the new LG Black Label series handset, and whaddya know, it’s called ‘Secret’, or the KF750 to you and I.

Believe it or not, this handset wasn’t exactly secret, as we first heard of the KF750 back in March, along with the specs! Still, it’s bound to follow the success of other Black Label series phones, the Chocolate and Shine, with a carbon fibre profile of just 11.8mm, a camera with 5.0-megapixel sensor, and can take video at 120fps, with DivX certified recording. In addition to this, you can edit photos…

Top five crap Valentine’s Day colourways/products to get your loved loathed one tomorrow

Katherine Hannaford Top Fives Leave a Comment

This happens but once a year, where companies feel compelled to spray-paint their products an embarrassing shade of red or pink in the hopes some daft fool will be forced to buy it at 5.42pm on the 14th of February, because Godiva and Charbonnel et Walker have run out of chocolates.

Here’s my top five pick of what not to buy someone for Valentine’s Day tomorrow. Not a single one. No-one. Just don’t do it. Get them some tins of Green Giant niblets instead.

1.) Sony VAIO CR notebook -
an expensive present for your loved one, this red-painted laptop will set you back $1,000, however you can be safe in the knowledge your partner will slap you for insulting him/her with a red matching cover and heart-shaped key chain. What? You think they actually like Sony VAIOs?!

Sony’s updated a couple…
