Here’s what’s high on my gadget wish list (originally blogged on MyDL).
1. Med8r – a high definition multimedia player

This fantastic device will let me watch TV series properly on my big screen, which I can access via the network (it’s WiFi compatible too). I really want a solution where I can sit on my couch and dump stuff onto the …

Rubybox: try before you buy

14/11/2011 – 23:18 | 5 Comments

I was sent the latest Rubybox (November) by the company, to do a comparison to Glambox. It is also an online beauty service that lets you ‘try before you buy’, for a fee.

When I received it, my first impression was that it was much smaller than Glambox. The size of Rubybox as shown on their website is not the size …

GlamBox is a ‘try before you buy’ online service for cosmetic samples, make up and beauty products. As someone who never has time to for these things, all the beauty products I own are months/years old. I read somewhere that mascara should be thrown out every 6 months. Oops.

So I took the plunge and signed up for a 3 month …

Likes & dislikes: Nokia N9

I’m two minded about the Nokia N9. While a lot of effort went into its design, Nokia itself have given up on the MeeGo operating system in favour of open source Tizen (not forgetting that Symbian is being replaced by Windows Phone). 

So if you’re seriously considering getting the Nokia N9, don’t expect a lot of new apps, or updates/support for …
