    Cute thing

    posted by bardy on 02/08/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    A nice toy for my toddler. Gave it to her at bath time and she kept playing with it. The main fish floats steadily and the little fish are packed nicely in it. They also float and are stable on the water. The paint seem to be stable as well (at least after ...
    Cons:
    None so far. Everything seems to be in order, the paint looks fine and the fish floats as promised.

    It can bring back life to an old iPAQ

    posted by bardy on 01/05/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    - Replaces old and dead iPAQ batteries - I added this to the cons as well, but the fact that the battery extends beyond the device's original size is a plus. It allows better and more convenient grip. - Comes with a modified back cover.
    Cons:
    - The rating for this battery is 2500mAh. However, from what I saw it lasted about 2-3 hours, which is way shorter compared to ...

    Nice addon, Linux compatible

    posted by bardy on 12/03/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    - Very small - Does not need drivers - Automatically identified and installed in Linux (Ubuntu 10.10 and even 8.10) - Range is impressive considering its small size. It even found my neighbour's cellular phone while searching for devices
    Cons:
    - None that I could find so far - The only thing that I could think of is the small size, which makes it alittle difficult to ...

    Its a toy, not a musical instrument

    posted by bardy on 11/29/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    The wooden body is solid and I don't suppose that it'll break easily. It contains strings and even a plastic pick.
    Cons:
    This is not a musical instrument! The strings cannot be tuned to decent pitch. In addition, the spanners are connected direct...
