JVC Xtreme Xplosives Earphones Review – The Best In-ear Earphones with Great Bass

I got myself a pair of JVC Xtreme Xplosives earphones to replace a pair of broken Sony’s, and I’m very pleased with my purchase. At $20 or so, these earphones handily beat competitors costing 5 times as much, and are the best in-ear earphones with great bass that I’ve found. When I first opened up the packaging, the earphones looked much bulkier than what I was used to with my previous pair of Sony earphones. Once you wear them though,

Why I Chose To Switch To Mac OS Over Windows 7?

So several people have asked me why I made the change to Mac OS, from being a Windows user for over 2 decades. Here’s why: 1. A more functional laptop I wanted a new laptop. I narrowed it down to a Lenovo, Sony or Macbook. 2 years ago, I wouldn’t even consider the Macbook, but these days the Macbooks come with a very functional touchpad, a gorgeous screen, and very comfortable keyboard. Not only that, it’s unibody design meant less

How To Fix The Problem of Suddenly Not Being Able To Send Messages With Your Sony Ericsson Phone

If you have a Sony Ericsson mobile phone and suddenly have problems sending messages, this solution may help. This may also work on other phones. Basically, it’s some bug that causes your phone to be stuck on one message and prevents you from sending messages totally. You know your phone is working fine otherwise, because you can make and receive calls, and you can even receive messages fine. I tried normal reboots and complete power cycling, but those don’t work

Why a 20-year User of Windows Made The Great Move to a Macbook Pro

I have a Lenovo Thinkpad X60s, which had been a great machine, but it was getting old and slow. My Thinkpad served me well for the past 3 years, and went through pretty much everything. I used it daily, carried it to school, work, home, everywhere. It’s size and heft made it a very portable machine, though I never did like how the screen looked — it was much too dark and matte for my liking. My dear machine even

Loud Sony Radio Alarm Clock Review

I’m terrible at waking up, because I get so busy that I don’t have enough sleep. So I need really good alarm clocks that are loud and reliable. I used to have a super loud alarm clock that could wake up the entire house (think of a rape alert with an alarm clock), but it wasn’t reliable. Sometimes the alarm wouldn’t go off, or it wouldn’t keep time properly. So I got another clock, the Sony ICF-C218 Automatic Time Set

Cheap iPhone Earphones From eBay – The Real Deal?

One of the problems with my previous phone – the Samsung i780 – was that it was incredibly hard to find accessories for it. I couldn’t find a headphone jack converter for it – and I really needed it because I couldn’t use the stock earphones as they kept falling out. So I couldn’t use my normal earphones with it, which was a bummer. With the iPhone, it came with an in-built 3.5mm headphone jack, so things were great –

Toshiba Announces End of HD DVD, Sony’s Blu-ray Triumphs

I was just reading in the papers about the decision of Wal-Mart dropping HD DVD for Blu-ray, and wondering what the impact of that would be. I guess I found out. Toshiba has just officially announced the discontinuation of its high-definition video format, HD DVD, after numerous bigwigs such as Wal-Mart, Netflix, Best Buy and many others abandoned HD DVD for Sony’s Blu-ray. It appears that Wal-Mart was the final straw. With no major players backing up its format, Toshiba
