Only a little more than a year ago I purchased the Garmin Nuvi 1490t satnav. Although a big issue regarding frequent automatic restarts was resolved with very good support from the Garmin helpdesk, I was longing back to my previous device from TomTom more and more.
I’ve been using my HTC Touch HD Windows phone for 2 years when I was finally done with it. The speed was really bad, especially compared to the new Iphones and Android machines. So, time to find something new. I decided to go for the first dual core Android phone to become available, which happened to be the LG Optimus Speed 2x or LG P990.
When I composed my new pc, the included Asus P5N7A-VM motherboard included all the graphical output connections I could want. It appeared however that it was not possible to use the DVI and HDMI connection in one go. Therefore I would need another graphical card. So I purchased the Asus EN8400GS SILENT/HTP/512M.
It features a DVI-I Dual Link (24+4+1) and a D-Sub port
For a low-budget home office PC AMD has some really nice processors. I chose the AMD Athlon X3 445, which currently gives most power for the money. As the computer will only be used for office like applications, I searched for a motherboard with all interfaces onboard: the ASRock 880GXH/USB3.
Recently I chose the Canon MG5250 above its major all-in-one competitors. Now I bought the thing, got it installed and am herewith sharing my first experiences.
Recently we installed a Spinning Bike and a desk in our bedroom. If you ever sat on a spinning bike you might have noticed how boring this can be. It would be great to have a TV in front of the bike to distract. On the desk however I’d like to have a decent monitor to be able to work from home comfortably.
