BlackBerry Storm 9500: BlackBerry SmartPhone

BlackBerry Storm: Touchscreen Smartphone

The new BlackBerry Storm is the latest mobile phone from BlackBerry and the Storm is also BlackBerry's first touchscreen mobile phone. The Storm, with its slick candy bar style looks is also one of the best looking BlackBerry's and is most definitely not eye diarrhoea to look at.

The BlackBerry Storm features a fantastic high-resolution screen and an incredibly innovative multi-touch UI. The Storm's touchscreen features what BlackBerry call ClickThrough, whats this means is that you have to press down until you hear a click for it to work so in theory the BlackBerry Storm's screen is just one big button, cool!

Other features of the BlackBerry Storm include a built-in GPS system, media player, 3.2MP camera, BlackBerry maps, a 3.5mm audio jack and a memory capacity that can go up to 16GB. One thing that is for sure is that the BlackBerry Storm is a media and entertainment friendly mobile phone.

As for internet access the BlackBerry Storm has, EDGE, GPRS and HSDPA for super fast internet so you can get quick, no fuss access to site such as MySpace, Bebo and Facebook as well as all important fast Email access.

The term "iPhone Killer" gets thrown around rather hastily so we're not going to call it that but what we will say is that the BlackBerry Storm is unquestionably a high quality mobile phone and is great value for money.

Spykee Spy Robot

Meccano Spykee Spy Robot

The Spykee Robot is the kind of thing i used to dream about when i was a kid. I'm not going to beat around the bush here, I'm just going to spit out exactly what Spykee is... Spykee is a Spy Robot equipped with a camera, microphone and WiFi which allows you to use your computer to control this little CCTV robot from absolutely anywhere!

Spykee can detect movements using his built-in motion detector, can sound an alarm on your PC and get this... he can even send you a snap of your target!

Spykee is made by Meccano so naturally, you get the opportunity to build him yourself (which is very simple). Once you have got him put together you can send him on a "mission" where he will listen, watch and let you talk to people using his microphone.

Amazingly Spykee is compatible with Skype so you can even use him as a webcam and talk over the internet or with his speaker and you can play all your favourite tunes through him aswell.

When Spykee gets tired (runs out of battery) he will automatically travel back to his docking station for 40 winks, completely on his own!

This truly is an amazing piece of technology and definitely not something you will want to miss out on. It really is quite breath-taking.

Pleo The Robotic Dinosaur

Pleo: A Toy robot, pet or is he both?

So what is Pleo? Well he is a robotic toy dinosaur, a Camarasaurus to be exact but he is more like a pet than a toy.

When you first recieve your Pleo you will have to nurture him and treat him well from his hatching stage to his juvenile stage. Pleo feels hunger and fatigue - offset by powerful urges to explore and be nurtured. He'll graze, nap and waddle about on his own - when he feels like it! Pleo dinosaur can change his mind and his mood, just as you do.

Pleo is tremendously interactive and every single Pleo is unique, as this robotic dinosaur grows older it will develop its own personality, moods & habits. UGobe have done tremendously well with this toy but once you get it, it’s upto you to create Pleo’s future.

If you are sick to the back teeth of replacing dead fish or bored silly with lazy hamsters and rabbits that sleep all day, go for a different type of pet, a completely unique pet, go for a robotic pet, go for a Pleo and spend the rest of your days caring for and loving this adorable little creature.
