Choosing a notebook PC: Size matters

Since I just purchased a new notebook PC, I’ve been taking a good look at the notebook market for the last couple of weeks. Prices are lower than ever for great notebooks, but the growing number of vastly different choices can be confusing. Starting today, this series of posts will look at some of the decisions you ...

The Hilton Hotel MP3 Player

While Mike and I were at SXSW in Austin, Texas, we stayed at the Austin Hilton Hotel right next to the conference. It’s the first time we’ve stayed at a Hilton Hotel since they have added the MP3 Player Clock Radio. I had heard about it, but I had never seen it.

CES: Shure Headphones

Mike and I have commented before about the difficulty of finding good headphones for exercising.

Mike and I tested the E3G headphones at the Shure booth ...

Review: Sony MDR-V250 Headphones

At your typical electronics or department store, it’s easy to find all kinds of headphones in-the-ear types, tiny earbuds, and various strange shapes that don’t fit anyone’s ears. (Are you listening, Nike?) It’s becoming harder to find cheap headphones that are shaped like plain old headphones, but fortunately, Sony ...
