I have rarely had so much fun and so much frustration at the same time. Flying the Helo TC is not the easiest task in the world. It takes a little skill and a learning curve. The controls are delicate and you need some space to maneuver until you get your skills down pat.
Helo TC is a twin rotor remote control helicopter that is superbly engineered. It lights up like Ferris wheel and is sturdy as a house despite its seemingly delicate appearance.
The Verbatim Ultra-Slim keyboard really is slim. It measures just over 1/8" think by 8 3/4 x 4/3/4 and weighs about as much as a hummingbird beak. So, it's compact and easy to carry on the road, yet it's a full-size Qwerty board with lots of special key features. It makes the perfect stock stuffer for the dedicated road warrior or for at home/office use to increase productivity.

Iâ€™ve lost my earlier skepticism and think that Microsoft is going to be a big player in the smartphone industry. This week weâ€™ll look again at several of the new phones coming, including T-Mobile's offerings, as well as some of the early impressions.
If you refer to or use Wikipedia as much as I do, then you have to get a WikiReader (created by Openmoko). Not directly smartphone-related, I know, but bloggers should really listen up. This is s great companion device, especially for those times when you just can't get to the network, and you need to brush up or verify some tech info.
Microsoft stirred things up last week with its Kin phone, and some very helpful articles and video demos have appeared. Again, Iâ€™m impressed with the vision behind this product. Also, this week Iâ€™ll note a review of the T-Mobile HTC HD2, as well as of the HTC HD Mini. And Iâ€™ll point to an interesting article about the lack of multitasking in the forthcoming Windows Phone 7.
The big news is that at a press event yesterday Microsoft announced two new phones that will be out soon, confirming ongoing rumors â€” and marking Microsoftâ€™s entry into the hardware market. This week Iâ€™ll give you some details of these two phones, plus point you to a giveaway.

It seems odd to talk about a specific Windows Phone 7 Series form factor, since Windows Mobile devices have typically had a fair amount of variety. But apparently Microsoft will exert much tighter control of chassis design this next round. This week Iâ€™ll point you to some info regarding the chassis design as well as more discussion of this forthcoming Wndows Phone software. And Iâ€™ll note info on the newly announced HTC HD Mini.
Windows Mobile 6.5.3 is now starting to arrive, with the release of two new phones. This week I want to point you to information about these new devices, but will first note some good how-to information about converting videos for your Windows Phone as well as watching Amazon Unbox movies on your device.
When Google's Nexus One launched a few weeks ago, BillShrink.com produced an infographic comparing the 'total cost of ownership' for a number of popular smartphones: Nexus One, iPhone, Droid and Palm Pre.
This past week T-Mobile officially announced that it will be releasing the HTC HD2 in the spring. In this column weâ€™ll also look ahead to the coming of Windows Mobile 7 â€” and the sad fact that it may be too late, given the Android surge. Plus, Iâ€™ll point you to an unboxing and hardware tour of the new Nexus One Android phone from Google.
