Lenovo U410 Ultrabook Review

It was finally time to get a new laptop, and I now find myself typing on a Lenovo IdeaPad, the 14″ u410. This is considered an Ultrabook, which I think is some sort of official term that Intel came up with. It basically means powerful, and yet slim and sexy. After using this thing for about a week solid now, I think I’d have to agree. This is a ‘real world’ review, based upon the […]

Spotify App data usage on Android

Spotify-Logo1

I finally got around to testing the Spotify app for Android. I am a heavy user of the desktop version, so I was expecting a lot. I really have to admit, I have been extremely impressed. It’s slick, has most of the features from the desktop version, and the usability seems top notch. You can play your radio stations for free, and if you pay for the premium version, you can even download your playlists […]

For anyone who was looking for a cheap wifi adapter for the Xbox 360 and found nothing but frustration, I share your pain.

It was recently announced that Verizon is ending its unlimited data plan. Starting July 7th, instead of ‘all you can eat’, you’ll be getting 2GB for $30. While 2GB might seem like a lot to some, if you’re a heavy streaming app user, you might find yourself paying overage charges if you’re not careful. One of the major causes of this may be Pandora. For the most part, everyone loves Pandora. I personally know several […]

Netflix App Review for HTC Droid Incredible

Finally, the Netflix App for Android is here! Android phone users have waited quite a while for this to happen. I know that personally, I was getting tired of my iPhone using friends bragging about how they had the Netflix App for quite some time now, and I didn’t. We’re even now though! Well, sort of. There some controversy with this App, because it’s release for Android is incredibly limited. If you have one of […]

Sony MDR-ZX100 headphones review

41mhnOf6p7L._SL500_AA300_

I recently moved into a new office, and had to get a new set of headphones. I don’t buy them too often, so I’m always stuck with the question of which style to go for. I was considering some fairly cheap ear buds, but in the end, I decided to go for the Sony MDR-ZX100 headphones, which are over the ear. At my old place of employment, I was using the Sony MDR-NC60 Noise Cancelling […]
