Apple iPod Shuffle 4GB

Apple’s third-generation shuffle is a radical revision of the entry-level iPod. The controls have moved to the cable under the right-hand earbud, with only a Shuffle/Continuous Play/Off switch on the device itself. This has allowed for the smallest, neatest-looking shuffle yet.

LG 19LD350

The LG 19LD350 19-inch LCD TV doesn’t look anything special on first inspection, with its low price and a fairly meaty depth (65mm) that confirms the absence of an LED backlight.

Samsung UE19C4000

Samsung has been chief cheerleader for LED TV, so it’s no surprise that the UE19C4000 is edge-lit. What is unexpected is that this 19-inch LCD is just 29.9mm deep.

Macally HiFiTune

The Macally HiFiTune may not be the prettiest earphones, but slip them in and put on your favourite song, and you’ll soon forget the aesthetics. The deep bass that is combined with reasonable treble tones make it feel as though you are using a pair of over-ear cups. It’s a shame then, that the HiFiTune’s  Full Article…
