A monitor fanatic I am not. I recognise the difference between TN and IPS and so on but I don’t typically get excited over the colour reproduction of one or the response time of another. Value to me is the key. Though typically for me that means bigger for cheaper for the most part. Continue reading “LG 34WL500 34″ 2560x1080p 75Hz Ultrawide Freesync HDR10 Monitor”
Yep, another. This will be the last for a while as it turns out these things are bloody expensive.
This months box from a subscription box I subscribe to contained the Sudio Tolv true wireless earbuds (true wireless means there are no wires connecting both earbuds together). Continue reading “Yet Another Pair of Wireless Earbuds – Sudio Tolv”
I said I had at least one more set of wireless earbuds and today we have a pair of Aukey EP-B60 earbuds.
I came upon these earbuds because this time I was most concerned about battery life. Finding these took time and using different search terms until, finally, the Aukey EP-B60 showed up. Continue reading “Aukey EP-B60 Bluetooth Earbuds”
Recently we have seen a resurgence of science fiction on television and film including reboots of Star Trek and Star Wars, along with wild cards like The Orville and The Expanse. Of course my personal favourite series of Stargate SG1 and Atlantis has disappeared and I’m not going to be talking about them here today.
I was originally a huge fan of Star Wars and the original Star Trek movies. Eventually with the release of the prequel Star Wars films and watching through all the TNG era Star Trek series (and Enterprise). After that there was a long drought of science fiction content.
Brace yourselves. I’m about to take you on a journey of confusion, sadness and lens flares. Continue reading “The State of Science Fiction Television Series and Film”
I am always on the lookout for some new headphones and in the latest McDonald’s Monopoly promotion I had enough properties entered into their app that it gave me a good percentage off of Skullcandy products if bought through Skullcandy’s website. So I took a look at their stuff. Continue reading “Skullcandy Push True Wireless Earbuds”
It’s no secret that I am a Sega Genesis fan. I’m a fan even though we got ours from our aunt when she moved out west much later than the console was really relevant any longer. Continue reading “Sega Genesis Mini – Another Love Letter to Sega Fans?”
The big name in games is back in classic form. Who would have thought World of Warcraft Classic would be so popular on Twitch and with gamers alike. Blizzard certainly didn’t. So much so that they didn’t have enough servers on launch.
I have played World of Warcraft since about a year after the game launched and have sunk countless DAYS in to the massively multiplayer online role-playing game. Until WoW there just wasn’t a game like it that interested me though I did have my bouts with Guild Wars several times. I even tried Everquest. Bleh. Continue reading “WoW Classic Is Back. And I Like It.”
Stan Lee, a man of incredible imagination and talent, has passed away at 95. While I think many knew he had less years ahead than he had behind him no one wanted to see him leave us behind. Lee of … Continue reading Stan Lee, Creator of Many of My Personal Favourite Heroes, Has Passed Away
A couple years ago everyone was excited with the release of the Oculus Rift funded through Kickstarter and HTC’s Vive. Both are basically dumb high quality stereo displays with sophisticated sensors on board to detect what position your head and feet are in relation to things in a game.
Both the Rift and the Vive require a high end PC to be tethered to it to experience anything otherwise all you have is an expensive mound of sensors and displays. Continue reading “Virtual Reality On a Budget – Oculus Go”
