More fun with digital photos

It is great fun to move your favorite pictures into one file and set that file as your screen saver. You can have all your image files loaded randomly and displayed on your screen as your screensaver.

I get extra enjoyment out of my favorite photos this way.

Tech Toys everyone should own - USB thumb drive

If you work on multiple computers, and want to carry files around with you OR need a quick backup storage...

My favorite toy is the portable USB thumb drives. They are getting cheaper and hold more information all of the time.

If you are looking to backup your photos and music, I would go to something larger and less portable. They now have reasonable, external, USB hard drives which are a better solution for that.


Many of your MP3 solutions can serve in this capacity as well.

One of the things I like about my Sony camera is that it is reconized by the computer as a portable drive, so you can copy files both to it and from it without needing any special software.

Gadget Classics - Sony 60 CD changer stereo

I have had a Sony 60 CD changer/ shelf stereo system for about 3 years now. (I dream of the 400 cd changer I saw at best buy.)

This is one of my favorite toys. I like the fact that all of my cd's are centrally stored in the system so that I don't have to go looking for them. It is easy to flip through and see what I want to play. I can hook my DVD player or video game system up to it for better sound. You can even connect a keyboard to it to add information on the CD's.

review of the motorola V220


Xbox complaint

A little thing really.... The DVD player remote should be optional. We lose remotes all the time. (only to find them later, under the sofa, in the cushions, in the fridge)

The sony playstation will let you play DVD's using the controlers.... Microsoft would never let you do something that simple or FREE.

Sigh.
