If you have a new LCD or Plasma high definition and tried playing VHS on it, you probably have noticed that it doesn’t look very good. I don’t know whether upscaling the 200 or so lines to 1080i will make any major difference, but with the new JVC DR-MV7S DVD/VHS recorder you get upscaling [...]

Every day we leave our laptops and PCs and tootle off around the office, make a cup of tea, check up with colleagues or generally just hide so that no one can find us.

Traditional lures used to get the fish biting look set to be in their twilight years as the new high-tech STROM lure is capable of catching 4 times as many fish during a typical fishing outing. This highly advanced STROM lure utilizes the vapor deposition polymerization technique, providing a high degree of light transmission on the super-thin optical coating that changes according to the viewing angle. This chameleon-like ability enables the STROM to reflect light in many directions, thus giving it the edge over standard lures. It works equally well in both salt and freshwater conditions. The STROM lures come in 2.4g and 3.7g sizes and are priced at $25 a pop.
China is no longer the sleeping dragon, and some of their products are able to rival and even usurp their western counterparts. The GP75 GPS navigation system shares a very strong resemblance to the Garmin c340and TomTom One, and it comes with more features than you can shake a stick at, including a 3.5" 65k color TFT touchscreen display, integrated speakers, a CF memory card slot, and many others. Chances are you won't see the GP75 make its way to either Europe or Stateside, but there is still no harm in checking out the specifications and features after the jump anyway.

Are you currently trying hard to conceive with no visible results? It all boils down to the matter of timing assuming the other party isn't shooting blanks. The Baby Boom wristwatch by LAKS is one that is meant for ladies only (d-uh!), as it is capable of keeping track of your ovulation cycle, alerting you when your most fertile period arrives. You can wear it even after you conceive as the Baby Boom will display the number of weeks that you are pregnant in case you can't count up to 36. Overall, the Baby Boom is a pretty useful watch - too bad it comes in a rather bland design with monochrome choices for color. Pick one up for 90 Euros.
Since the Xbox 360 is a pretty powerful machine by console standards, chances are high that the unit will run into overheating problems as it takes a whole lot of power to churn out that many polygons per second. Koolance decided to tackle this problem by providing a liquid cooling kit that will sit well with all Xbox 360 owners. The $359 price tag will most probably put off most people, as it is just $40 shy of the Xbox 360 Premium System. At that high price, you will get the Exos-LT cooling system, CPU and GPU liquid blocks, yet another AC power adapter, and a special Xbox 360 mounting hardware. Take note that installation of this product will void your warranty. Only experienced users need apply, as you will find out that there are no instructions included for disassembling or modifying the Xbox, and attaching the cooling components.
