Etymotic hf3

I previously had Etymotic ER4 microPro headphones, and had custom molds made by ACS Custom.  Unfortunately, I left them on a plane once and lost them.  Since then I had to live with a few mediocre headphones (my punishment).  But…

Droid Eris vs. iPhone

I bought an HTC Droid Eris (on Verizon) this week-end… just to play with it and to decide whether Android was a threat to the iPhone.  This phone still runs Android 1.5 so there will probably be quite a few…

The joys of a fast machine

I’ve been pretty happy with my Lenovo S10 Netbook, and furnished it with a 320GB hard drive and 2GB RAM.  It is great for travel, even though I tend to plug it into an external monitor wherever I can since…
