Nokia N8

More than meets the eye The design profile for the N8 is a new direction for Nokia — in fact, it’s quite a unique look for smartphones in general.

Canon Legria HF S21

Canon’s 2010 HF S series of AVCHD camcorders consists of two models that, as usual, differ by memory configuration and the availability of an electronic viewfinder (EVF).

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II

Say what you will about Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II, but it’s far from the worst Star Wars game ever made. Is it as wretched as the licensed game of Episode III? Not on your nelly. As rotten as The Clone Wars or Super Bombad Racing? How on Earth could it be? It might, however,  Full Article…

James Bond 007: Blood Stone

This is what you call a missed opportunity. A totally original Bond game, scripted by a Hollywood screenwriter, voiced by Daniel Craig and Judi Dench, starring a digitised Joss Stone and developed by the team behind The Club and Project Gotham Racing, Blood Stone should have been a blinder.
