B&o Play Beolit 12 review

April 27th, 2012 by Raj

For those of you interested in my forever sporadic journalistic endeavours then you’ll be gleeful to hear my review of Bang & Olufsen’s new B&o Play product the “Beolit 12” is available for your eyes to consume over on MacTalk. An excerpt of said article is here found below to tempt you to read more…

Its relatively small & lightweight but stocky in stature and had I not already mentioned it was a speaker you might be asking yourself “What is it?”, the design not giving a lot away to its function yet screaming Bang & Olufsen from its minimalistic pore ridden facade. At first I have to admit I found the whole thing a little ghastly but in the month it’s sat pride of place in my lounge room the more I’ve fallen in love with its simplicity and come to appreciate the thought put in to the design.

If you’d like to read more may I suggest you go here.
For the photographic kind there are lots of lovely images of the Beolit 12 here.

Tutorial: How to install an SSD in your MacBook Pro

February 24th, 2011 by Raj

Feel like getting a little crazy and pulling apart your MacBook Pro? Well this is the tutorial for you my friend. Last weekend I had the wonderful experience of installing a Solid State Drive (SSD) into my laptop and documenting the process for all you interested folk out there.

For those of you wondering why you’d want to do this…. speeeeeeed baby! My beautiful laptop is completely booted in under 15 seconds from a standing start. Less than 2 from after typing in my password on OS X’s login screen!! You have to see it to believe.

Plus, if you do this in the next 24 hours before Apple announce they’re going to sell you a Mac with this already done in it you’ll prove just how ahead of the curve you are!!

As always head over to MacTalk to get the full run down of how it’s done! Enjoy kids!!

Review: Beat Heat Eat by Dean Lahn

April 29th, 2009 by Raj

Beat Heat Eat I’m not particularly in the habit of writing book reviews, in fact I don’t think I’ve really gotten around to doing such a thing since I was in the 8th grade at High School. That didn’t stop the boys at MacTalk sending me one to review though, which again -at first- seemed like a definite mystery to me too.

You see “Beat Heat Eat” is not your ordinary cookbook. It’s designed by a nerd and has a bunch of simple & tasty recipes for nerds. Seeing how I did at one stage co-host my very own Cooking Show and I am in fact a nerd (of sorts) it actually makes perfect sense that I should review the book after all. Isn’t it grand when everything just falls in to place?!

So be sure to jump over to MacTalk and check out another of my wondrous articles that just have you feeling all warm and gooey like a Cadbury Creme Egg. Hmmmm….. Creme Egg…….

Review: The i316 Micro size Bluetooth Headset from iLuv

April 8th, 2009 by Raj

iLuv i316 Bluetooth Headset (Front)

In my latest review for those happy chaps at MacTalk I tackle the new iLuv i316 Micro size Bluetooth Headset, which you’ll find distributed by iWorld Australia. She’s a little beauty and I do say “little” emphatically as you’ll notice it’s small size in the photo above. So head on over and check it out, if not for the article do it for these cool photos that I’m quite proud of if I do say so myself. Enjoy!

Review: The Agent V4 HD webcam (over @ MacTalk)

February 27th, 2009 by Raj

The guys at MacTalk keep sending me crap to write about. Most recently it happens to be a USB webcam that you can plug in to your Mac or PC called the “Agent V4 HD“, something you probably surmised from the title of this post already.

So if webcams are your thing and you’re in the market for one then it’s probably worth you jumping over to the article and taking a look see. In fact, even if they’re not I think you should take a look anyways if only to say hello to my lovely assistant Sooty!
