Google has begun featuring free ad-supported content on Google Video for the first time as part of what the company is calling a pilot test. The geeks at google seems to have finally taking a hint as regards its shockinly awful google videos service and decided to do something about it.

In a limited trial run featuring ad content from guys like Burger king and HP Google would show classics such as the Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps, the brilliant but mad Mr Magoo, The Charlie Rose Show and Charlie Chaplin flicks,the shows arent exatly going to tickle your pringles but i guess if you area sucker for the oldies it would doi for you .

For this to work content has to be key and for guys like me who have the attention span of a fish this doesn't cut it ,an old charlie champlain flick might might be fun for the first five minutes but the effect tends to ware off pretty quickly.So sort your content out Google or else were all sticking to the Tube .

Playstation 3-Can You Afford It?

If you love your game consoles like i do then you are rapidly anticipating the commencement of sales of the PS3.However speculated preorder prices have been crazy and it seems the retailers are trying the shock and ore effect to ensure we all shit in our pants has to be one the first site to slam a pre-order price on the PS($549 to be exact), with availability listed as due for release on the 17 November.

The website listing on the Play website says: “Due to an expected European shortage of the PS3, we are unable to guarantee delivery of your PS3 before Christmas.

The Samsung Q1-The Ultra Mobile Pc

The essence of the Q1 the first in the series of Microsoft inspired products, is centered around it being a fully fledged multimedia device that allows the user to perform a varying range of functions among which include
: Connecting to the internet via wireless connection
: Playing music, Videos, and games
: Allowing the user to plug in a phone and make voice call over the internet.

Pretty nice features in one gadge,t but geez the Q1 doe nothing that other cheaper gadgets in the market already do. Many portable hand held computers and laptops allow you play games and store music on them so what makes this so ground breaking.
Drawbacks: Its major flaw is its lack of longevity when it comes to battery power, as the Q1 when fully only goes on for about 3.5 hours
Gig space is pretty minimal as the Q1 only packs 40 GB of heat on it
A retail price of £750 in the Uk would put a big hole in anyone’s wallet and is a major turn off

Positives: Extremely impressive outlook and a flexibility that offers great appeal due to its fusion of functions.

The LG Chocolate KG00-Picasso Would Be Proud

The Lg ads and billboards have been every were and its kind of difficult to get away from it. So we had to check the phone out and see what all the hype was about I must say it surprised us in a lot of ways. On face value you see why the phone won the IF design awards.

The stylish exterior and panache the phone exumes is very pleasing to they eye and goes against the grain of what you would normally expect from an LG phone which normally seems to cater to those just want a phone to make and receive calls and want to look really boring doing it. The phone has nine touch sensitive navigational controls which lights up bright red like Christmas lights when the slider function is engaged. Believe us when you say quite a few people would be impressed when you pop the phone out to receive a call.

In addition to the drool worthy exterior the phone also come with features you would expect a high end phone to com with. Ranging from the Mp3 player to a mega pixel camera and an extremely high resolution LCD screen. It also pretty cool the fact that the phone allows you to use your MP3 tones as a standard ringtone.

That being said you see why the phone won an ward for its external design as opposed to its innovative features a s you get the impression that LG compromised slightly on features in order to deliver a truly piccassoesque like phone.
Nevertheless this phone with huge similarities to the Motorola Razr would have your friends in a state of ore and is definitely one with the ‘wow’ factor.

The Sony Vaio UX50-Is The Buzz Justified?

The original buzz created by the introduction of the Sony Vaio U line in 2002 and the increasing need to fill the void for a product that full encapsulates the balance between style , increased usability, power and portability has culminated in the release of the Ux50,UX90s and Ux180P Vaio range of laptops.

The sleek silver and black paneling of the PDA automatically calls to all our sensiblilities and makes it harder to imagine that the Vaio possess the functionality of a full-size laptop or desktop with similar levels of accessibility and functionality.

On face value there quite a few drawbacks to this
The Vaio can easily be dismissed as an over sized extremely heavy PDA(The Vaio weighs 520g grams) with a battery time toppling just over 3.5 hours .

Our view is the drawbacks and positives of the Vaio cancel themselves out so if you have a few quid to spare and are trying to impress the missus or your friends with a totally ubber sheik gadget then the Vaio which would hit European store late summer is a sure bet.
