Updated Neuros MPEG-4 Recorder 2 does the Q

Just got a note from the folks at Neuros: a new, free firmware upgrade to the Neuros MPEG-4 Recorder 2 (which I've heaped praise on in the past) not only doubles the bitrate for iPod recording, it also lets you capture and encode video for the Motoro...

Lumines II to distract players with music videos

You may have noticed that the forthcoming PSP game Lumines II will feature comtemporary songs and music videos (by "today's most cutting edge musicians," which generally means they aren't) instead of the generic yet appropriate techno and background ...

Samsung's two dual-layer DVD camcorders

MiniDV camcorder sales continue to slide, and Samsung has weighed in with a pair of DVD camcorders, the approximately $730 SC-DC564 and the approximately $597 SC-DC164. Both feature widescreen recording (though to all appearances only the SC-DC564 do...

SanDisk SDHC cards climb to 4GB

Earlier this year Panasonic and Toshiba announced 4GB SDHC cards (SDHC -- Secure Digital High Capacity -- being the next generation of SD flash memory), both of which will be available in the coming months.

SanDisk unleashes more memory

SanDisk has released a whole bunch of new flash memory cards to its lineup -- right around the time that everyone's announcing new digital cameras. What a coincidence!

Hauppauge WinTV-PVR-USB2

The analog Hauppauge WinTV-PVR-USB2 is one of the largest USB tuners we've seen. But big size does have some advantages: there's enough room to clearly label each connector, further simplifying an already simple setup. The inputs you're most likely t...

ADS Tech Instant TV +FM PCI

The most user-friendly feature of the ADS Tech Instant TV +FM PCI is probably its breakout box, which has composite and S-Video inputs. Thanks to the box, you don't have to access the back of your PC every time you want to connect an analog camcorder...

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre x360

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
