Sunday September 15 – NavMan MY450LMT GPS Review, New iPhones, and Australia Post as our useless gadget.

Sep 16, 2013

Welcome to this week’s show, where we explore the merits of the newly announced iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C, we take NavMan’s recently released MY450LMT GPS for a drive through Sydney’s suburbs, and we again try to remind Australia Post about exactly what the concept of “customer service” really means.

Jun 5, 2011

The Netgear N600 is a well designed, high quality router that should satisfy most users’ needs not just in today’s ADSL world, but well into the the NBN future.
