LG Optimus 3D Max review

A hands-on review of the LG Optimus 3D Max.

But do you really need 3D on a mobile phone? Anyway....

Nokia's 41 MP sensor camera phone

I believe that the phone I have been dreaming about is finally here.

The Nokia 808 PureView comes with a crazy 41 MP (Yes! that's right) Carl Zeiss lens with Xenon flash. It also records 1080p Full HD video (with LED video light) with up to 4 x lossless zoom.

Apparently the 808 is also has the world’s first device to include High Amplitude Audio Capture which allows you to record distortion-free audio at levels of up to 140 dB.

The phoen has a built in 6 GB internal user memory which can be expanded up to 48 GB with an external microSD memory card to store all the pictures and videos.

The phone has a talk time of 11 hours and stand by time of 465 hrs, though I guess this is if you decide to use the mobile only for making and receiving calls, in which case, you do not need this phone.

Check out the full specs here.

Perfect bathroom upgrade for the geek

I was in the bath today morning and looking around I realised that our bathroom is desperately in need of a complete makeover. Looking for inspiration I went to the Ikea website and even though I am a big Ikea fan, there was nothing exciting. Anyway I somehow reached a site and scrolling down the home page the words rechargeable LED mirrors, caught my eye.

I was definitely curious and I found out that these interesting bathroom mirrors from HiB have built in LED lights and require no electrical installation. The mirrors include a rechargeable battery pack which can be easily removed from the side of the mirror and charged with the supplied mains adapter.

I found out that a single charge will give an average battery life of around a month since the mirrors use energy efficient LED bulbs. They are safer and cheaper alternatives to the standard wired-in illuminated mirrors and what a great way to instantly transform the bathroom.

Buffalo Drivestation 1Tb

In September 2010 I bought a TOSHIBA Ultra Slim External USB Hard Disk with a huge 500GB storage.
Well, It's taken more than a year but the Toshiba is almost out of memory as well.

Looking around, I came across the Buffalo Drivestation 1Tb USB2 External Hard Disk Drive on Play.com for £79.99 with free delivery.

Yes, I bought it.

Nothing fancy as you can see from the pictures and not that portable either. Furthermore, I need an external power source as well. However, I am not complaining.

I just plugged it in and my PC recognised the drive immediately. So far it has been reliable and file transfers between the Buffalo and my PC is quite fast. Now I want to see how fast it takes to fill up 1 Tetrabyte of storage.
