Canon PowerShot SD990 IS Roanoke VA

As a fan of Canon’s Digital Elph cameras, I was a bit disappointed by the current flagship model of the series, the 14.7-megapixel PowerShot SD990 IS . My disappointment lies mostly with the build quality of the PowerShot SD990 IS; it produces image quality that’s among the best we’ve seen of cameras of a similar ilk.

Format Word Tables Roanoke VA

Take a tour of Microsoft Word's unsung table in Roanoke feature and learn how easy it is to make snazzy tables for your documents. Most of us know that formatting a table’s data, cells, and borders can potentially help readers grasp what a table is trying to say. But that doesn’t mean we know the best way to make it happen.

Genius G-Shot HD520 Roanoke VA

Unlike the candy bar-like shapes of the UltraHD, Vado HD, and Zi6, the G-Shot features a pistol-grip design with a flip-out LCD (its design is similar to the Xacti). The flip-out LCD can rotate 270 degress, so you can turn the display around for self-portraits. The G-Shot’s LCD also make it easier to shoot subjects when you need to hold the camera over your head or closer to the ground. The G-Shot has a 2.5-inch LCD, bigger than what’s usually found on most pocket camcorders. We had no problems seeing the LCD in bright sunlight.

Mac OS X Review Roanoke VA

Learn how to shrink applications down to fit on smaller screens, or how to make them larger, if you wish (perhaps to adjust for a too-small font size).

OS X Calculator App Roanoke VA

Have you ever thought that the results display in the built-in OS X Calculator app was too small? No, I haven’t either…but perhaps, just perhaps, one day you may want to see the results of a calculation in a much bolder, larger, and easily-read-from-across-the-room form. If so, look no further than your handy Control key and mouse button (or if you’re multi-button-mouse-enabled, the right mouse button).

Offering a wide-angle Leica lens, very good image quality, a big LCD, and excellent battery life, Panasonic’s Lumix DMC-FS25 in Roanoke is a great well-rounded pocket camera.

Power Pros Touch for iPhone Roanoke VA

Unless you’re already familiar with the franchise, you wouldn’t guess that Power Pros Touch is all about baseball. The series known as Jikkyo Powerful Pro Yakyu in Japan is famous for its arcade baseball action with tiny characters sporting unusually large heads. This console staple has now found a home on iPhone and iPod touch, courtesy of Konami Digital Entertainment.

Rocstor Rocpro 850 500GB Roanoke VA

The Rocpro 850 500GB in Roanoke is a solid performer in our benchmarking tests and is further recommended by a strong warranty and a competitive price.

Safe Web Browsing Roanoke VA

As a security analyst and researcher, I often find myself exploring some of the darker corners of the Internet. In the course of staying current on security issues, I frequently must browse the sorts of Web sites no average person should go anywhere near; I'm also far more likely to be targeted in an attack. That's forced me to develop a somewhat extreme approach to safer surfing.

SMS Touch for iPhone Roanoke VA

This SMS-to-e-mail app in Roanoke features some improvements upon the pre-iPhone 3.0 version of the iPhone's built-in SMS app. But the clunky app-switching entailed by frequent use of SMS Touch won't work as a long-term solution for anyone planning to send more than a couple texts a day.

SpamX 4.0 Roanoke VA

While SpamX in Roanoke remains unparalleled at reporting spammers to their ISPs, and offers a very effective spam filtering solution, all of the problems we noted with version 3 remain with version 4.

Weather Widget App Roanoke VA

The Weather widget in OS X’s Dashboard (in OS X 10.4 and later) displays a six-day forecast along with the current weather—complete with a large graphic representing the current conditions. As I check the Beaverton, Oregon weather this morning, for example, I see a large glowing sun, and a forecast high of 90F. Different weather conditions offer different graphics, so over time, you’ll see a number of different images appear.
