THANK YOU! So annoying getting an update and having to relearn everything or figure out where things are. What exactly IS the advantage of having IOS7?! And the text color is way too light. I hate it. ~sigh~

How to Switch From iPhone 5S to BlackBerry Z30 (and Why)

6 comments, most recent: Ratko said on : "

I might have missed this, but there seems to be no way to transfer iPhone contacts (local) to the BB without syncing the contact data via cloud services such as Gmail, Yahoo, etc. Am I correct? Has anyone tried this method - (http://www.copytrans.net/suppo... )

It mentions that iPhone contacts are kept offline upon transfer to the BlackBerry but it uses the BB desktop software which is intended for older BB devices...


Group test: What's the best Blu-ray writer?

3 comments, most recent: Peter Rafeiner said on : "

The 8-Track people said that too :-)
In the US a 25GB Blue Ray blank can be had for approx. $1.
In cost per GB that is about par with a DVD but you can store substantially larger files.
I routinely need to back up files in the 20GB range; not movies but databases and could not really do that with DVDs. Spanning across media is way to risky as a single disk failure will ruin the whole set.

Compro C200 Plus review

7 comments, most recent: Mr Techy said on 19 January 2011: "Although it was easy to set up, recording from decent quality VHS produced mediocre results. Any slight glitches in analogue tapes were much more pronounced rendering some clips unwatchable. Analogue tape owners should look elsewhere."

Apple MacBook Pro (15-inch, Mid 2010) 2.66GHz Core i7 review

5 comments, most recent: fubar1977 said on 17 January 2011: "Overall experience has been fantastic, this machine just does all I ask it to and has given me no problems at all. Buying a Macbook Pro has been a "leap of faith" that has paid off in every respect, only complaints have been minor OS peculiarities that disappear with familiarity. Totally Recommended."

Kaspersky Internet Security 2011 review

8 comments, most recent: 961 said on 16 January 2011: "I have to confess my Bank supplied this to me free of charge, which must say something. But in the two years I have been using it the performance has improved markedly and I have had no nasty intruders"

Epson Stylus SX215 review

2 comments, most recent: User019283029 said on 15 January 2011: "Not a bad printer, but the quirks of not being able to print in "black only" mode, and not being able to scan unless all inks are OK is annoying. Quality is pretty good otherwise though!"

PhotoBox review

1 comments, most recent: zeromarks said on 11 January 2011: "Spoiled a gift for a birthday celebration, and has made me incredibly angry. The customer service was atrocious in my opinion, I found the staff rude and unprofessional. My card still hasn’t arrived, and isn’t expected to arrive for “another 4 – 6 days”. This is in total 12 days for the printing of a simple card!"
