Every year we are offered a new batch of Playstation 3 games, when will this stop! with any luck never.

Lets find out what the latest ps3 games are like.


A couple weeks ago, I turned on.

“Well, with a little trepidation I’ve finally done it” the update read “I’ve bought my own detached house. It has all appliances I could need and a beautiful thatched roof”

I was surprised and impressed by this news, Bob is only a little older than me. I was shocked that he was enjoying so much success. Quite what (or who) he’d pulled off to suddenly get this kind of money. Worked. Lunch breaks.  He moved away and I only met him a few years later, whilst we were on the same train. Working as writers. I was about to post a long message congratulating Bob on his newfound success when I noticed the final two words to his status. Yes, Bob has the perfect place and yes, it has appliances and a thatched roof…On Skyrim. I groaned and joined the legion of talking heads telling him what a nerd. Read more »

If you use the new Motorola DP2400 radios in the office, then you need to look at these earpieces

Well, dear readers, here it really is, the final of the 5-part series on two way radio earpieces.

You’ll find we’ve thrown wholly random pop-culture references at you (everything from ‘Wacky Races’ to 007 himself) and we’ve (hopefully) had a couple of laughs amongst all the dry details and information. If you’ve read all of these items so far, then thanks, we appreciate your time.

OK, so the last item on our list is that Dp 2400 earpiece, which could the most expensive device we have viewed so far, albeit by only £2. The Dp 2400 earpiece, then, (for those among you who have not been keeping count) can be purchased from Earpieceonline for £29.75. Read more »


How do waterproof headphones work?

Asked by Betty from Hammersmith

I take it you’re a newer reader and you therefore aren’t aware of my dislike for recommending specific sets of headphones. In a usual case, (like when one reader asked me to recommend sweat-proof headphones) I have to answer with “it depends on a multitude of factors, such as how often you use them, how important sound quality is to you or even (in that one case) how much you tend to sweat. However, I’m not going to let you down, Betty, because waterproof headphones are actually a bit different… Read more »


Samsung Make every type of Television’s and this 42-Inch Smart TV is one to contemplate

It is an easy mistake to make I presume. I work at nighttime and, as a consequence, am often scarcely getting up at midday. At time of writing, it is just gone 4AM (and I do not expect to be asleep for at least one more hour). So, I sleepily say goodbye to my girlfriend as she gets up for work at 7AM and then I doze until approximately 10.30 or 11.00, before getting up and planning to work on my ‘fun’ tasks like internet comics, novels and attending online writing seminars.

Can you watch films on the ipad mini?

Generally, the iPad Mini is ok for watching movies (as well as doing pretty much everything else). The processing power is about the same as a iPad 4, so there’s no actual difficulty there and the playback is usually as easy as an android’s bottom (Star Trek gag).

Really the only real issue with the iPad Mini could be the lack of a ‘Retina Display’, the stunning display technology featured on apple ipad 3 – 4, iPod Touch (4th – 5th Gen) and iPhone 4 – 5 (amongst others). The apple ipad Mini does suffer somewhat with the lack of a Retina Display, however it’s probably not a crisis. Read more »

Bone conducting tech, how this trumps every other kind of earpiece

Music is a massive element of everyday life also it has been for almost as long as People have now been on this earth. I often point to a discovery of a 40,000-year-old flute dating back to the ice age as proof for this, but truthfully, all the facts you’ll need is all around you, every day. We recall ballads and music long after the folks who initially composed them have died and rotted away (a plan which I find curiously comforting) plus the music industry, love it or hate it, is definitely a big business.

If you employ motorola radios in your work, then you need to look at these earpieces

We ended the last piece by saying that you just should not use the featured product to protect the life of US president. Though, we’ll start this post by saying that, if you are aiming to guard President Obama over the next few months, then you are getting nearer to the right idea with this earpiece.

The Gp 340 covert earpiece is really a serious bit of comms. This earpiece comes attached to 1 of the curly receivers, the sort you’ve seen Agent Smith wearing in The Matrix films. The Motorola multi pin earpiece is a device designed for use with the GP340 crop of two way radio devices. Read more »


A Time For Champions: “I’m Sportacus!”

Sport games are the final fan’s revenge. You think that the referee threw the match? Put your money where your mouth is, sport games fan. Obviously, if you think Mike Tyson was overrated, it doesn’t necessarily follow that you’d be the person to inform him so. But maybe Mohammed Ali or George Foreman could? Therefore, sport games are born.


One of those oldest games genres, sport games have an enduring appeal as timeless as sport itself. You simply can not go and play for England in the next world cup on a whim, no, that kind of thing takes time, and airplane tickets, and days off work, and years in therapy and may even end in a messy divorce. sport games are also brilliant for proving your points throughout pub arguments.

Voyager 1 Makes noises from the outer limits of the solar system

The Voyager 1 spaceship, which just evolved into the very first man-built object to leave our sun system, has transmitted strange, sharp pitched shrieks and squeals from outside the void.

The noises, described by a few as a ‘howl’ and by some as a ‘scream’, were recorded from a distance of twelve Billion miles from our sun. Read more »

Why Can’t I Use a Radio or a Phone on an Aeroplane?

The real reason is that the signals generated by your radio receiver (yes, it generates signals as well as receives them) can interfere with the aeroplane’s navigation equipment.


In an article for ‘The Straight Dope’, published in 1987, Cecil Adams (who ran a similar, but far superior, column to this one) explained it far better than I could. He said,


“Most modern receivers use something called a “local oscillator,” which is sort of an internal transmitter. The oscillator generates signal A, which is mixed with the somewhat raw incoming signal B to produce nice, easy-to-work-with signal C. There’s usually some sort of shielding around the oscillator, but it’s not always effective and sometimes errant signals leak out to make life difficult for other radio equipment nearby. If the other equipment happens to be an aircraft navigation device, somebody could wind up digging furrows with a $25 million plow. So do your bit for air safety and bring a tape player instead.” Read more »
