Xbox kinect

I have chosen Xbox kinect because I think it is totally cool that you can play games without a controller and  the motion sensor is very useful . I think it’s the best gadget for Xbox. It’s such a good idea they have made so much money of Xbox kinect  so its recommended .

Possibly the Best Balance Transfer Deal from Barclaycard Ever

One of the sentences most heard about credit cards these days is if only I had a little breathing space.  The interest just seems to pile up month after month making any chance of paying off a credit card completely seem as remote as Mars.  So, how would you feel about having 20 month’s breathing space?

I know it seems unlikely but that is exactly what Barclaycard Platinum is offering at the moment.  When you transfer your balance to this card you will benefit from the longest period of 0% interest on the market.  Yes, you read correctly – that is 0% on balance transfers for 20 months.

20 months is a long time. Plus if you transfer more than one balance you will also benefit from a 25% reduction in the handling fee, something not to be sniffed at – and even if you have only one balance to transfer the rate at its highest it will be 3.2%.

That could, if you do a little maths, help you out a great deal and could mean a substantial amount of money staying in your pocket.  Plus, of course, there is the Barclaycard Freedom rewards scheme which could help make an even greater difference in terms of pounds and pence.

Of course, terms and conditions, as ever apply: if, for example the amount you want to transfer is greater than 90% of the credit amount on your account then you will be asked if you would like to transfer a lower amount.  So, it’s always a good idea to read the small print first, such as Barclaycard’s full right to refuse a balance transfer or indeed to limit the amount that you are able to transfer. 

You can find out more here.

For many people this could still prove to be the balance transfer deal of the century! I have just created a small spreadsheet to calculate the cost of staying with my current credit card or going over to Barclaycard.  Put it this way, the difference is potentially greater than the cost of a two week holiday in the Caribbean.  I think I may well apply for this myself.

Gran Tourismo prologue 5 vs Need For Speed Shift

I have played Grantourismo for the past 6 months and I think it’s a great car game but I also like Need For Speed Shift because of the tuning and upgrade feature it has in the game. I think that Need For Speed would win if there was to be a competition between the two games because Need For Speed Shift  allows you to upgrade your cars to make them even faster than they were before. Gran tourismo 5 does not have that kind of feature, even though GT 5 does have a game feature that NFS Shift does not have which is the feature that saves your replay.
You can also earn trophies in NFS Shift after you have completed the task needed to get that particular trophy ; GT5 Prologue does not have trophies in the game which makes it lose a point to NFS Shift.

Acer Iconia

This is a review of the Acer Iconia.
This video just goes to show how far technology has come, from the first computers ever built, to more modern technology - nothing compares to this brand new Acer Iconia.
This is the first laptop in the world to have 2 touch screens. The technology is so sophisticated - it can tell how you are touching the screens and reacts in different ways. Touch the screen with 1 hand - all five fingers, and a menu will appear on the bottom screen which will allow the user to change applications. However touch the screen with both hands - all ten fingers and the keyboard will appear.
It is a very expensive laptop - but then again it is a double touch screen laptop, it is £1,499.99

Keyboard shortcuts?

In computing, a keyboard shortcut is a finite set of one or more keys that invoke a software or operating system operation when triggered by the user. A meaning of term "keyboard shortcut" can vary depending on software manufacturer. For instance, Microsoft differentiates keyboard shortcuts from hotkeys whereby the former consists of a specific key combination used to trigger an action, and the latter represents a designated letter in a menu command or toolbar button that when pressed together with the Alt key, activates such command.

PS3 - Killzone 3

This year PlayStation has taken the gaming level to another platform with the new release of 3D gaming. The new first 3D shoot them up game KillZone 3 has taken advantage of the new software by making their game 3D compatible giving you a chance to see the game in a different light.

Enhanced graphics give the gamer a sense of realness this is what it’s all about taking down the enemy and completing the mission go head to head with the computer and fight it out with countless enemies. The PS3 platform gives you a nice smooth game play, and with easy controls you should be able to get a hang of the game in no time.  

The 3D game play lets you see the game from a different approach, flying in the sky and scaling tall buildings will never be the same. As long as your television set is 3D compatible. The new graphics are really going to revolutionize the gaming industry forever.
