I was after a small MP3 player that was cheap, durable and small enough to take along to the gym and as the session only lasts 1-2 hours max, battery life and capacity was not that important. In the tech section of my local Tesco store, they had the Pink & Silver Technika 4GB mp3 player reduced from £14 to £10. I had sort of looked at these before and the reviews said it was low and lacked any way of seeing what track you were on. For a mere £10, I bought it anyway as the next model I was looking at was £24 with a screen on at Argos. It ticked a few boxes of course – it was small enough to slip in my jogger bottoms without causing issues when I am training. It was cheap so if for example I smashed into it with a 50KG dumbell, I would not be too upset when it would stop working and finally at 4GB, it could store enough songs for a varied selection of songs.
The most common question I get asked from people who want to buy a tablet, probably for christmas is which one should they buy? Its an obvious question of course if you head out to the shops and see the apple selling for £269 for the mini or £399 for the 9.7″ model. People know apple, they have the iPhone so they feel they should be buying the apple brand instead of an unknown entity of Android. I want to go over some of the points to help you make the right choice which will work best with you.
Recently after fixing (or failing to) the last laptop, the person asked me to get him a caddy to house the 2.5″ sata drive so he could at least access all of his data, my goal then was to spend the least amount while still providing a half decent case. The problem with most of the online stores was the fact that once you added the item to your basket, even though it was very cheap, the price doubled with the postage added on. After some searching I came across Kenable and they had a 2.5″ sata enclose for £3.69 the postage was as low as £1.99 using royal mail. I in fact ordered two of these, one for myself as I have some spare 160GIG sata drives hanging about.
I noticed my previous Logitech Headset which I used for all voice comms (Skype and such) was still working, the foam had started to rip, this meant it was time for a new headset. I went to my local Tesco store and by chance noticed they had some HP Premium Digital headset for £25. I checked out the box and noticed it was USB, this was good as I prefer USB to jacks for headphones. I questioned myself would it be any good, will the noise stay in these one’s or escape like the last set I Bought. Would the microphone be good or some cheap low quality thing these things often have. I took a chance on the grounds if it was bad, I would take it back.
While I was out and about I went into HMV for some headphones as it goes and while I could not find a decent pair of headphones, I did manage to see a whole range of bargains in the PS3 Section. Some of the prices of the games were about the same I had seen elsewhere but some were so cheap it was almost silly not to buy them. I saw EyePet which included the PS3 Camera for a steal at £10, now I already own the Webcam and have no great need to buy this Eyepet thing, as it is aimed at kids. The other Bargain I saw was at another store with Socom 4 which came in at £15 and this included the Bluetooth Headset.
