I’ve previously talked about cell phone signal boosters, well, for those not in the know, here’s a quick info of what this device is. A cell phone signal booster is a device that can amplify your mobile phone’s signal. This device usually has a very large internal or in some cases, external antenna in order to receive signals properly.
Although sometimes, it’s not your service provider’s fault that you get a lousy signal. Mobile phones have become more of a fashion icon that’s why instead of external antennae, manufacturers opt for internal ones and these antennae sometimes cannot get a proper reception. That’s why if your friend or family member has a different mobile phone model, you’ll notice that they get a stronger or weaker signal than you do.
A cell phone booster is very easy to install. These devices are usually pretty compact though still bigger than your mobile phone, thanks to advances in technology. You can get some pretty cheap cell phone booster on eBay.
I’ve previously played with my cousin’s windows mobile phone and I couldn’t help but notice that they have a way of switching cell phone signal from GSM to WCDMA or choose it automatically. My Sony Ericsson Phone doesn’t have that option. Yes, I can choose GSM only or GSM or 3G but no option for choosing 3G only signal.
I wish Sony Ericsson would remedy this in the near future. I’ve always tethered my mobile phone to my laptop and sometimes, my phone constantly changes from 2G to 3G and the result is that I get intermittent Internet connection. If I could choose to get 3G signals only, that would solve the problem even if it means, I only get 1 bar of signal. Of course, I can always use a 3G cell phone signal booster but those things costs a lot.
A cell phone booster is a device that would allow you to boost the signal that you’re mobile phone is getting. We all know that indoor signal quality of some providers are crappy so some people would buy these devices.
Okay, so I’ve been ready for the digital TV transition ever since I’ve purchased by Bravia TV LCD TV a few years back but for those thinking of buying an HDTV instead of a TV with a digital tuner then it doesn’t hurt to look at Sony’s Bravia TVs. Yes, according to Consumer Electronics Association, you can get a DTV ready TV for as low as $200 but add around $200 more and you can get a spanking new Bravia TV and you’ll be more than ready to meet the DTV transition.
Of course for $400, expect to just get around 19 inch of LCD TV from Sony but I assure you that you’ll get more than DVD standard signals with HDTV and once you go High Def, you never want to turn back. So throw away your analog to digital TV converter voucher and just splurge on an HDTV.
If you’re a Sony fanboy/girl and you own a yacht, you might want to rethink getting Sony car audio for your boat. There’s a reason why boat ladders and boat seats are made of different materials compared with cars, it’s because being in the high seas will expose everything on your boat to a damp and corrosive environment that’s why boat manufacturers opt for specially made products for their yachts.
So even though I always recommend Sony products, for your boat’s audio system, you might want to opt for Clarion. Clarion has an exclusive marine audio system line and you can bet that their audio systems would last you a long while since these are specially designed with the high seas in mind.
One of my friends asked me why I chose to be a Sony fan rather than an Apple fan. Well, I know I’m not being fair since I haven’t tried using a Mac PC but it’s more of an OS thing really rather than the hardware thing. In terms of products and design, Sony and Mac are both offering their products at a premium compared with similar consumer electronics but the thing is, I’m just more comfortable using Windows than Apple’s OSx.
Besides, I’ve already a couple of expensive software and games installed on my VAIOs running Windows so I don’t want to have to buy a different license just so it would work on Mac. True, there are also some free mac games floating around the net but even the best mac games and software that are free, I still don’t have the time to learn OSx.
Besides, it’s not like I’m completely boycotting Apple, we do have one iPhone in our household and we constantly download iPhone mobile games for that so you can’t say that I’m not buying Apple products.
If you own a PSP and you’re looking to learn how to unbrick or unlock your PSP, you’ve probably heard of the infamous PSP Pandora battery. Why the PSP needs that particular kind of battery, I do not know. Unbricking or unlocking your PSP is a bit too technical and even I haven’t tried it because of the complicated procedures.
If you want to know how to unlock your PSP using the Pandora battery, you can visit a lot of popular PSP forums. The benefits of unlocking or unbricking your PSP? Well, some say if you unbrick your PSP, you’ll be able to customized the firmware and when you do that, you’ll be able to load a lot of cool applications for your PSP, one of them is the PSX or PS1 emulator which lets you play PS1 games on your PSP.
The Sony Ericsson C905 is Sony’s newest cybershot phone that boasts an 8 megapixel camera! 8 megapixel, that’s a lot of camera power, plus it has autofocus and lots of other camera goodies. Sony Ericsson’s previous camera were only 5 megapixels and their latest include the Sony Ericsson W902, a walkman phone with a 5 megapixel camera.
Sony Ericsson C905 reviews say that image quality wise, the C905 is superb. Though of course, I don’t think that this will be enough for photo enthusiasts to throw away their stand alone digital cameras.
One would wonder if a big company like Sony utilizes dedicated servers for their Sony Playstation Network website. It’s just that every time they announce a firmware update, I have to wait a few months since I could hardly get hold of their site because of the traffic. Thankfully, there are some gaming websites and forums wherein you can download the files and their server is a Los Angeles dedicated server so I accessing their websites and downloading files is very fast.
Maybe it’s time that Sony transfers some of their funding and invest in bigger servers, preferably with R1Soft Backup so that they could cater to the growing Sony Playstation Network community.
