Archos 5 Internet Tablet – A 4 out of 10 Gadget Review

archos 5 internet tablet 150x150 Archos 5 Internet Tablet   A 4 out of 10 Gadget Review
I have a problem with edges. Edges are something that for me, just get in the way somewhat. In this review I am reminded of several of my pet hates whilst discovering a brand that I knew existed but had never paid attention to. The brand is Archos and they seem to have spent the last decade being mostly ignored by the casual shopper but lusted after by pure geeks. Whilst Mr and Mrs Average walked lustfully into the Apple store to buy the latest colour iPod, the wisest of us all kept quiet about the technical marvel that was in our hand at the time….I’m talking about the Archos you disgusting people! Incidentally I want it made clear that I am Mr Average in the example above. I’m a geeky sort of fellow but there are limits.
With the recent release of the 8th generation of Archos devices, the company decided to send me a 7th generation product. This is presumably due to the fact that I (like most others) have ignored them in the past and this is their introduction to their range. So here it is: a review of an Archos 5 Internet Tablet that is going to be largely ignored because everybody who wants an Archos, wants the latest generation of it. Read the full story »

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time has trailer released

The Prince of Persia seems to have gone all British guv’nor on us as Jake Gyllenhaal is sporting a decidedly un-Persian like accent (not that I know what that accent is…is it an accent)?
Anyway, here …

Up review – reinvigorate your passion for film

Jennifer’s Body review – you didn’t expect it to be good did you?

After the relative shambles that was inglourious Basterds I decided to take a short break from reviewing films. Quentin Tarantino’s latest “masterpiece” had drained me of that much hope for cinema. Naturally I had planned …

Is this a movie or a concert? Why on earth is it merely limited to 2 weeks (other than to cram as many individuals into the cinema at one time)?

Apart from the obvious fact that James Purefoy seems to be struggling with an Oirish/Irish accent (or is it west country farmer?), the Solomon Kane trailer looks quite reasonable.
