The Antec 25 eleven hundred is a very amazing computer case aimed at gamer and high end pc users, as I am both I am very pleased with this case and will say it is one of the best I have seen to date.

Instagram Android

Yes it’s true instagram for android is finally here, its been months since they announced the development of instagram for android.

I have to say so far I am loving the app, as a photographer I really appreciate decent photo apps and this one so far really makes up for the wait.

Even thinking about removing my current photo apps it’s that good.

So far I have signed up and uploaded 4 photos, but I plan to upload allot more very soon, you can even see an example below.

Quick News About Mojo Future Tech

I have just got off the phone to my new contact at a company called Mojo Future Tech, these guys make a great product called the Mojo wrist band, which uses holographic technology to improve things like our bodies natural performance, for example balance.

Now I know what you are all thinking a small silicone band that can improve my sporting and everyday performance sounds like a load of voodoo rubbish, but I actually got the chance to use one of these at Gadget Show Live and they actually work really well, although I am still not 100% sure how they work, apart from they help your body perform allot better using the holograms embedded in the band.

But I will be reviving one some time next week hopefully and I will be performing a review and hopefully a few tests on sports people I know, so keep an eye on this page for more.

Dragon naturally speaking blog post

I’m writing this post with Dragon NaturallySpeaking, so far it is working perfect.

I can dictate into any word document or e-mail, without using the keyboard or mouse.

So far I’ve written this whole post using Dragon NaturallySpeaking, and going to attempt to use Dragon NaturallySpeaking to do most of the work this week and see how I get on, hopefully it will work perfect and at the end of the week I will perform a video you.

The video review will believe available on YouTube by the end of this week hopefully if I not too busy.

Also anybody listening to the show yesterday, will no that I have some cleaning products but touchscreens and phones to review, as well as a Xbox 360 wireless headset and Plantronics.

So make sure you keep an eye on this blog the review.

Seen some pretty amazing technology including:

  • All the latest 3D TVs, which are amazing.
  • Nintendo 3DS, which was good but could be allot better due to the screen has to be¬†positioned¬†perfectly to gain the full 3D effect.
  • Duke Nukem Forever, long time waiting for this new game but more than¬†worth the wait as the game is amazing, also expect a review soon as I now have an exclusive demo code to download the demo before release.
  • All the latest android tablets.
  • And allot more to be¬†shown¬†soon once I have edited the massive 140 photos, I had to show you guys everything I we found.

Also you can all hopefully if the companies get in contact, I should have sent to me a large number of products to review, for example Samsung Galaxy S 2,Galaxy Tab 2, View Sonics new android tablet and allot more to come.

But to keep you all entertained while they send me the products to review, Plantronics have given me the new GameCon X95 wireless Xbox 360 wireless gaming headset to play with and review, also I have a few electronics cleaning products to review and the Dragon speech recognition software to download and test.
