a-JAYS Four

Feb 6, 2011

As you know, we have previously spoken highly of the various JAYS products. For the uninitiated, these products consist of a number of different in-ear headphones for personal listening to your iPhone, MP3 player, or similar. A couple of weeks back the new a-JAYS Four earphones arrived in Australia, courtesy of the local distributors, Smart IT, for us to...

Eurosmartz PrintBureau

Eurosmartz PrintBureau

Jan 9, 2011

EuroSmartz PrintBureau is an app for the iPad and iPhone that promises much, but delivers very little. At AU$16, it’s actually a very expensive application, but even if they were giving this away for free, it would be overpriced, such is how poorly I view this particular application. For instance, it’s supposed to deliver direct printing from your...

Coming on to the market just in time for the holiday season is the ultra cool Parrot AR Drone. Here we have a device that has very few redeeming qualities and not much in the way of practical uses, but it’s just so much fun, and it’s lack of practical uses is a part of its appeal: this one is just for fun, and there is absolutely nothing at all wrong...

And it works pretty well, too. While the map updating is a little jerky an slower than you would see on a dedicated GPS solution, you must (a) remember that...

Uniden iGo 43 GPS

Nov 14, 2010

Finally, a GPS system that doesn’t frustrate and annoy me to the point where I choose to not throw the thing in the used GPS bin! Seriously, most GPS units that we get to see – and wee see lots – have so many minor annoyances that they just become frustrating to use. The directions they give are wrong or not really logical, their traffic and...

Blackberry Smoothie

Blackberry Smoothie

Oct 24, 2010

Earlier this week RIM showed us their latest entry into the very competitive phone market, the Blackberry Torch. I’ve got to say that I’m impressed. At last we have a Blackberry phone that I could live with. And at the Gadget Grill, I think it’s fair to describe this phone as a real Blackberry Smoothie. First of all, it’s quite a compact...
