Parallels 6. Windows on your Mac.

OS X Desktop using Parallels 6

Oct 17, 2010

As good as OS X is, sometimes it just has to be Windows. For instance, there are applications that have been written for Windows, an for which there is no Mac version. Yes, I know that sounds odd, but there are some applications where there is either no Mac version, or perhaps the Mac version is not quite up to par. But when that happens, what’s a person...

Huawei Pocket WiFi E585

Vodafone Pocket WiFi Router

Sep 5, 2010

The concept of a pocket WiFi router is one that has always appealed to me. This sort of device reduces your reliance upon over-priced internet services that you may need to acquire when traveling, such as in a hotel room, or perhaps at a coffee shop or an airport.

I find them fiddly to use and horribly uncomfortable, often with poor sound quality. In the studio I have a pair of studio quality headphones that I can wear for hours and hours,...

Sony NEX 3

Jul 11, 2010

Sony have taken the compact digital camera market and blown a very big hole in it. Traditionally, this market, aimed at those who wish their cameras to be just a simple point and shoot affair, has been populated with small, fashion accessories, most of which also happen to make perfectly good wallet-sized images. While some of them can actually take some fairly...

Nikon D3s Reviewed

Jul 4, 2010

Courtesy of the good folks at Nikon Australia, we have had the opportunity to spend a couple of weeks with their flagship D3s along with a 70-200 VRII lens. First impressions are important, and this combo feels like a tank. The build quality actually reminds of the legendary Nikons of the 1970s and 1980s, and to be perfectly honest, that surprised me. In a good...
