If you switch the mic settings about a bit, you can pick between mobile phone, music and gaming audio, depending on your preferences.

  • Sony PlayStation 4

    Gift: Sony PlayStation 4 

    Price: £499.99

    Sony's PS4 is a long awaited update to the popular Playstation 3 console -- and every self-respecting owner of a cave needs at least one console, right? The PS4 is due for release on the 29th, and not only has new & improved graphics, but also allows you to share moments when you play on social media or connect up to a mobile device. Of course, if you're an Xbox fan, then Microsoft's new Xbox one is already available.

  • The Gallery Curse

    When will zdnet authors realise that the stupid gallery format used on here is losing them readers.

    Nice door handle, that's as far as I'm going. Who knows what the rest is but I don't care enough to go through the hideous gallery arrangement.

    • Yep. Same here.

      Like the door handle.

  • Henge Dock

    I have written my post in my website:

    This is great if I have a 39", 42", or 47" television as a monitor as I don't have to buy an iMac with a fixed 27" display.

    The reason for a large monitor is so I don't have to zoom in too much compared to having a small monitor. With my 47" at 1920x1080, I don't have to zoom in at all in my Ubuntu desktop. I could settle for having a 39" but I like to watch movies at sizes 47" and higher, but any larger than 47" and I will have to shrink down my applications vertically. I like having horizontal real estate that my 47" screen provides. Of course, the only thing I can't do in my Ubuntu desktop is run Mac applications that are specifically for a Mac.

  • Universal remote price

    Shocking that a Logitech Harmony Touch universal remote costs nearly as much as an iPad Mini at this point. How can they not get that price lower? I have the Logitech Harmony 880, and some of the buttons have stopped working after 3-4 years. I'm having a really hard time thinking I have to spend $250 or more to replace it.
  • Wrong Logitech Harmony product

    Not interested in the Logitech Harmony Touch. The true geek will want the Harmony Smart Control, which includes the Harmony Hub that allows an iPhone or iPod Touch (not sure about Android) phone to be the advanced remote control, but also comes with a simple remote in case no phone is handy. For the price of Logitech Harmony Touch, I can get Harmony Smart Control and an iPod Touch on eBay (my phone is Windows Phone).
  • Another practical present

    My husband is a professional athlete, so I usually present him something related. But this year I ran out of ideas completely)). Recently was looking for some books on amazon and stumbled upon special proposal for post-workout products called BCAA. I have heard my husband mentioning this in connection with his trainings). Carefully consulted him – found out this product is broadly used by athletes! So I made an order at Already anticipating how surprised he would be!
