Staples MailMate Compact Shredder

04/22/09 | by Adam | Categories: Technology, Reviews
Pluses: Small, attractive shredder capable of destroying CDs and credit cards. Staples will replace it when it fails within the warranty period. Minuses: Randomly decides that it's going to no longer turn on. Small paper bin means frequent changes;… more »
 

Review: Apple Airport Express's AirTunes

10/27/08 | by Adam | Categories: Technology, Music, Reviews, Macintosh, iPhone
Recently I picked up an Apple Airport Express which is their little doodad that acts as a 802.11n extender, USB printer host and -- most importantly to me -- an AirTunes source. One of the problems I've been chewing on for a while is how to get my home… more »
 

Laurell Hamilton's "Anita Blake" books

06/29/08 | by Adam | Categories: Reviews
The comedians over at Penny Arcade nail this one. Well, almost. My personal suggestion for similar genre reading after the Blake novels get a bit much is to try Karen Chance's "Cassandra Palmer" series or Jim Butcher's most excellent "Dresden Files"… more »
 

"Repo Man"

05/22/08 | by Adam | Categories: Music, Reviews
I have issues with this soundtrack. I bought it because of the presence of one stunning instrumental, "Reel Ten" by the Plugz. Moody, interesting, twangy. The problem lies in the remainder of what's on the disc. more »
 

Pure Moods

05/16/08 | by Adam | Categories: Music, Reviews
The "Pure Moods" series from Virgin is a real mishmash of styles and artists. Comprised of the like-named "Pure Moods" (one through four) and "Pure Moods: Celestial Celebration", the albums are linked by a feeling -- a "mood" I suppose -- but it feels… more »

Too much time on aircraft (and the road generally) recently has resulted in the following brief movie synopses(*): more »
 

David Arkenstone's "Atlantis"

03/18/08 | by Adam | Categories: Music, Reviews
There's not a lot to say here: it's, well, more David Arkenstone although this time he seems to be channeling a fair amount of Adiemus. Otherwise you more or less know what this sounds like without having heard it first. It's not as aggressive as… more »
 

Bic biro reviews on Amazon

12/31/07 | by Adam | Categories: Reviews
Some people have far too much time to play with. On the upside, a number of the "reviews" are screamingly funny. (Via Nodwick) more »
 

Stupid, stupid, stupid

10/31/07 | by Adam | Categories: Technology, Whining, Reviews
A year or so ago, I bought a Philips PhotoFrame (7FF1M4/37 model) as a present for a relative. It was well received and was used daily with no problems. That made it a great success in my eyes. Until tonight when I bricked it. more »
 

TomTom One

09/01/07 | by Adam | Categories: Technology, Reviews, Macintosh
Summary: stand-alone car navigation system I picked up a refurbished TomTom One earlier this year when Future Shop had a special on them. While it's worked pretty well inside the city of Calgary, I wanted to give it a good run for its money and the… more »
 

Bringing Teh Funny

07/31/07 | by Adam | Categories: Technology, Silly, Reviews
I like a good turn of phrase. To wit: I dislike crapping on sci-fi movies for 'bad science'. It's like crapping on Lord of the Rings for having elves and magic. It's a movie. If there were ever to be a truly realistic sci-fi movie, it would be several… more »
 

Review: D-Link DPR-1260

07/25/07 | by Adam | Categories: Technology, Reviews
Summary: 4 USB port 802.11g print server with some extra functionality Due to heating issues -- it's been a warm summer here in Calgary -- I've moved my D-Link DNS-323 NAS out of my office to somewhere a bit cooler. The downside of this is that I've… more »
 

Irregular Webcomic

07/20/07 | by Adam | Categories: Silly, Reviews
One of my favourite places to visit online is "Irregular Webcomic". The strip runs several independent plotlines which sometimes overlap, including Shakespeare as a modern technical writer, an incompetent fantasy-world adventuring party, an entirely… more »
 

M.A.S.S., "The Music Of Alan Parsons"

07/19/07 | by Adam | Categories: Music, Reviews
Oh, it's bad. I knew it was going to be weak, and then it managed to be even worse than that. This frisbee is a rendition of the instrumental works of the Alan Parsons Project performed on what sound like some remarkably cheap synths by an anonymous… more »
 

Synergy2 Desktop

02/05/07 | by Adam | Categories: Technology, Reviews
Truly the internet is a wonderful place; if you have a need, there's probably someone out there with just the thing to resolve it. Sometimes it's even free. Such is the case with Synergy2. more »

"Ready, Aye, Ready" was a slogan used by Canadian politicians to indicate Canada's willingness to assist the British Empire in any conflict. It remains in use as a motto for some of the Canadian military. It has almost nothing to do with the content of this blog.
