Review: Doomsday

I have been waiting for this movie for some time, thinking its going to be a some thing like resident evil with some cool action. Then there was Rhona Mitra, who is very hot which is another positive aspect of this movie. I was sorely disappointed with this movie, it went from an action movie such as 28 weeks later to crazy world such as Espcape from New York, then jumped into Castles and Fortresses such as Robin Hood. I didn’t know where they were going with it, but it was a roller coaster and I kept looking at my watch. If you haven’t seen this movie, then don’t, it isn’t the worst movie out there, but it could have been a lot better.

Review: Ironman

This movie is everything it promised and more, I have been waiting over a year to see this movie and it was well worth it. I have been a fan of Ironman from the early 90s reading the Marvel comics, he was a superhero you feel you could reach since he was human and developed the technology to able to fight.

I was afraid when I heard Robert Downey Jr. was chosen as Tony Stark, in the comics Tony Stark was this genius who was also troubled, always trying to help and push himself to his limit, he is a solitary man with two lives. Robert Downey Jr. did an amazing job playing Tony Stark, he gave a certain flare to Tony’s darkness which I thought was excellent. The movie was executed perfectly, there was a perfect mix of special effects, it wasn’t overboard. The movie was perfect, you are satisfied with the movie and enjoyed it, but you are left wanting more. Stay after the credits there is a surprise which isn’t to be missed, can’t wait for the next Ironman.

Review: Phillips VOIP 841

I have been using this phone for a few weeks now and I used every feature it has. I tend to make a lot of phone calls to the US and UK, and some of those phone calls last over an hour. When talking to technical service of some kind you stay on hold for the longest time. The best solution for my needs was Skype, but the most annoying part for me about using Skype is having to use the computer.

A basic breakdown of Skype, its an internet based solution for Skype to Skype calls, and Skype to Normal Lines call. With the normal lines you have to pay a very small fee, and with a dedicated land line number in the US which is a one time fee. Now Skype offers Unlimited World Calls and Unlimited Country calls for a small fee as well. But I’m not here to review Skype but this Phillips Voip Phone.

Pros

  • All your contacts integrate from Skype when you login, any changes to Skype contacts online will be reflected on the phone
  • Very good quality of sound with Skype, good quality with land line, I was surprised that land line quality was worse then the Skype. Some people thought I was calling from within the US
  • Very good battery life lasted a couple of days on standby, and a couple of hours of talk time
  • Good with conference calls
  • No dropped calls with all my calls lasting over 30 minutes
  • Very loud speaker
  • Works with headsets
  • Reasonable Price

Cons

  • The phone design is nice but after long use it isn’t the most comfortable in your hand
  • No Volume Control
  • No manual and bad Phillips Support (Lots of Online Support from Forums)

Overall I think it is a fantastic purchase, and if anyone is looking for a Skype solution then this is your phone, better then any solution I have seen yet.
