Blackberry Bold

Beauty and brains. Be Bold. The blackberry bold is definitely one of the best designed blackberry devices; its rounded edges, smooth curves and polished exterior really catch your eye. It is indeed a beautiful phone, and your friends will certainly be jealous, but unlike some other phones, it also delivers when it comes to usability and performance. The bold’s dazzling screen will leave you amazed at its pixel quality, with a resolution of 480 x 320 it offers a truly rich experience when viewing videos and pictures. The keyboard is sturdy yet soft to touch, even with all the gloss it still remains an incredible business phone with almost every application you’d need straight out of the box. The bold exudes class, and a level of sophistication that other phones lack.

Nokia N97

Nokia's N97 should be released in the first quater of 2009. Nokia's new flagship phone is certainly an impressive one, and provides strong competition for the devices in its category, packing all the usual features associated with Nokia devices and a whole lot more. its touch screen with tactile feedback is a welcome advancement, and would make the use of the touch screen a more interesting experience. they have also added a full QWERTY keyboard that slides out, so you can actually have a choice of using either interface. Nokia calls it the "world's most advanced mobile computer." and there is enough evidence not to doubt that claim. Other specifications are HSDPA, WiFi, and Bluetooth radios, A-GPS, a 3.5-mm headjack, 32GB of onboard memory with microSD expansion,for a possible addition 16GB of memory and a battery capable of up to 1.5 days of continuous audio playback or 4.5-hours video. 5 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss glass and "DVD quality" video capture at 30fps, too.

After 25 yrs, is Mac better than PC?

This is a debate that has been going on for years and would probably still be going on years to come.

Saturday 24th January marked the 25th anniversary, when the first Macintosh was released. If you use Mac now, you obviously think Mac is better than PC. The Mac operating system - Mac OS X, is arguably the more elegant of than PC. Although vista is trying to battle back, i still think that the Mac interface is prettier and more intuitive than any flavour of windows.

Mac users could list various reasons why they feel Mac is better whilst PC users could list the same for Windows (chech out The Gadget Group discssion on facebook

At the end of the day, which one is better comes down to how you want to use your computer.
