Get rid of your internet cables and if your searching for a cheap reliable wireless dongle then look no further! Yesterday after installing windows 8 on my friends computer he ran into a little problem, he had no way to connect to the internet because the computer was too far from the router (it was downstairs) and he didnt want cables going through his house so we searched for a wireless dongle. 

After running around Argos, Staples, Maplins and Comet, the average price was £20! just for a wireless dongle which is a complete rip off obviously. Argos was alright considering they were selling one for £10 but that was out of stock, my friend almost bought the next one up for £15 but again that was out of stock too. We gave up, came back home and i showed him this wireless dongle on amazon for only £5+free delivery in the uk! 

"I bought this for my old windows XP Desktop as I no longer wanted wires trailing around the house. It works amazingly well, lovely connectivity and hardly any speed loss, and no ghastly wires to worry about.
I had no problems persuading it to work automatically after loading the driver on the supplied mini CD ROM, and my only regret is not buying one sooner." 

"Ordered because I had problems with my existing Netgear adapter getting very hot and the connection failing as a result. This adapter was about a quarter of the price of the Netgear, came with a mini CD to install the driver - which was very easy. Connected to the superfast broadband router easily and all seems to be working fine. Doesn't seem to be getting hot either. Only slight oddity is the constantly flashing blue light, so it's gone in a USB slot at the back of the case under the desk - so that doesn't affect us at all but could be a little irritating if you had that in your face all the time.

Very pleased so far. "

Do yourself a favour and dont buy a wireless dongle from the popular retailers on the high street because you will get ripped off into spending £20+ on something not worth more then a fiver. If you found my article helpful then please feel free and post a comment. You can purchase the Wireless Dongle from amazon here

Amazon Discount Deals of the Month

     Amazon Discount Deals of the Month

At least once a month ill be posting the top electronic deals on amazon for the current month, here ill likely post an amazon review under the product considering i wont have tried them all. 

1.Kindle! - Perfect way to get into the kindle market if you weren't sure about it previously for just £69.00

Kindle - small, light and fast

  • Less than 170 grams - lighter than a paperback, fits in your pocket
  • New darker, hand-tuned fonts for easier reading
  • Reads like paper with no glare, even in bright sunlight
  • Download books in 60 seconds with built-in Wi-Fi
  • Holds up to 1,400 books - take your library wherever you go

"Wow'..This is the goods. I got mine this morning from Amazon. It was so easy to set up, even I managed it, and that is saying something. Within under 20 minutes i had it all set up, and charging through my computer. I got 12 books on from Amazon, in next to no time at all. No more paying for postage, or having to wait for the postman to bring you a book to read. Great stuff.
Once you have found the book you want, All you need to do is press the buy it now button, and before you have time to blink, your book is ready and waiting for you to read. I must admit, for a while I have been thinking of getting a Kindle, but thought that they would be hard to get used to. I was wrong, They are just great. I know I will be taking mine out with me when go places. I got the leather case too, and they are a real team. I feel my Kindle is well protected, and no more getting fed-up waiting in a Dentists, or a Doctors surgery's, or any other place you have to wait. Just take out the Kindle, and enjoy what ever book you have picked.

I went for the basic one, as all I want to do is read a book. No bells and whistles on it. Just a basic kindle that I think is the best thing I have bought in ages. Thanks. Amazon.." - Amazon Review

2. iPod Touch 16GB 4G -


  • Up to 40 hours of music playback
  • Up to 7 hours of video playback
  • VGA quality video on front camera
  • Apple Maps location service

"The iPod Touch itself is also brilliant! Bought this because I dropped my previous one and have been waiting months to have it repaired but it's now useless so after all the stress I thought I'd just buy myself a new one. The white iPod is simply gorgeous, a twist on the original black one. After having both colours I prefer the white colour a lot! The 16GB lets me hold LOADS of stuff! I restored all my music, programmes, pictures and apps onto this one and there is still lots of memory for me to hold lots of other things. My favourite thing about the iPod touch is the camera. It takes great photos and the option to turn around the camera so you can easily take photos of yourself and with your friends without the difficulty is great! You can also download Instagram to make your photos even more impressive! At this price it's so worth it and I haven't been able to find one cheaper than Amazon!" - Amazon Review

  • Handy portable storage - Massive 1TB

"Had the 1TB for a few weeks now and I'm very impressed , the image doesn't do the drive justice - it's a BLACK chequered and textured finish to the top, piano black around the sides and a Matt Black Durable underside with 4 rubber feet (These little rubber feet/touch pads are a great idea as its stops the drive clattering on the desk and sliding around ). In the box is a USB 3.0 micro cable (The drive and cable are fully backwards compatible with USB 2.0 which I'm currently using )a quick start guide and the warranty document (3 Years ) - on the drive there is security and back up software which i have yet to use but helpful if you don't have any.
So far it's done its job perfectly and I'm very impressed - recommended purchase 100%"

4. New Apple TV (Latest Model - Launched Mar 2012) - For the Mac users that browse my blog
£89.19 & this item Delivered FREE in the UK

  • Rent from the largest selection of HD movies.
  • Browse and play YouTube and Vimeo videos, access online Flickr photos, and listen to Internet radio.
  • View the most recent photos taken on your iOS device and pushed to your Photo Stream in iCloud.
  • Wirelessly stream content from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to your widescreen TV.3
  • Sleek design that’s small, quiet, and energy efficient.
"1. For the past 6 years I've had a Mac Mini hooked up to our HDTV to provide home theatre/hi-fi goodness. The Mini is now long in the tooth and needed updating. The Apple TV has done this and at a fraction of the cost. All the functionality provided by the Mini can now be duplicated by mirroring my iMac or MBA - including Sky Go (something not possible from an iOS device).
2. By mirroring my Mac/iPhone/iPad to my HDTV via the aTV, I have a brand new multi-platform (kinda) HD gaming system. The Apple TV does this supremely well. Angry Birds and Real Racing 2 are just 2 games that I've tried so far that looked fantastic on the bigger screen. Incidentally, running an 'n' wireless network eliminated any lag issues.
3. I can stream my entire iTunes music and movie collection either from iTunes Match or from my Mac Mini - soon to become a wireless home server - need I say more ?!
4. HD movie rentals are stunning. Fast, crisp, great colours. My blu-ray player may have just been made redundant ! I rented Prometheus last night. Brilliant. Good film and 'movie-going' experience." Amazon Review

5.Logitech Z323 Speaker System - Get rid of your old computer speakers and upgrade to this including sub

  • 360-degree sound helps project audio evenly in all directions, so you get a great listening experience throughout the room
  • Ported, down-firing subwoofer delivers rich bass that brings music, movies and games to life
  • 1 dual RCA jack and a 3.5 mm jack make it easy to connect a Logitech Squeezebox™ network music player, gaming console, DVD player or iPod®
  • Integrated headphone jack lets you listen in private whenever you want
  • Ships in Certified Frustration-Free Packaging
  • 2 Year Guarantee 

"I did a lot of research before purchasing these speakers. I was tempted by the Logitech LS21 because of the price (my friend has them and I know that they are extremely good value for money) but since it was my birthday I thought I would spend a bit more and I was not disappointed. The sound is very clear and they can make a huge amount of noise. One warning would be that the bass can be very loud - stuff rattles in the room when the subwoofer is on max - but it is perfect for normal listening and can be turned off completely if you are worried about noise complaints etc.
Overall I would thoroughly recommend these speakers, excellent for a cheap to mid range purchase" - Amazon Review

Nicolites Electronic Cigarette Review

Nicolites Rechargeable Electronic Cigarette Review

When buying a Nicolites E-cigarette you will be given; 

  • 2 Cartridges (Cartomizer), each last as long as 20 normal cigarettes would. 
  • A USB charger, fits into anything that has a USB socket, even an iPhone USB plug 
  • The E cigarette

Where i'm from in England I've had the opportunity to try the more popular refillable tornado tank E-cigs which were a nightmare to use considering they have a lifespan of only a month whereas in the 3-6 months of using the Nicolite cigarette I HAVE NEVER HAD ONE BREAK ON ME. These E-cigs generally just don't break. Although i did have one where i turned the cartridge too hard into the cigarette and it did break but that was partly my fault from not realizing i was turning too hard.

If you are trying to give up smoking then i can assure you Electronic cigarettes work the best and this one works very well in fact. When trying to quit smoking i found that freely smoking inside without worrying about the smell on my clothes and in the house was the best feeling and even better when you know your not doing any damage to your health while smoking these. After a while of using the E-cig you will start to lose the urges for a normal cigarette. 

The E-cig is about twice as big as a normal straight Cigarette, there is no button to start the vape compared to most other E-cigs. You place it in your mouth just like a normal fag and as you take a pull the mechanism inside starts and vapes. This is done in a way to mimic what smoking normally would be like and as an added bonus effect the end of the E-cig glows red to show its working. The end will flash repeatedly when it needs to be charged. 

At this point, the only negative thing I can say about this E-cig is that the cartomizers dont last very long, if you smoke a pack of 10 over two or three days then you might only be spending £6 a week on a pack of cartomizers (they come in 3) . But if you smoke more then a pack of 10 a day then you'll find that one cartridge will most likely run out over the course of a day. There are options around this to buy a seperate fluid that will fill the cartomizers which allows them to last up to a week each.

For me this is the only electronic cigarette that i can use without any problems or hassle. The tobacco taste is also very nice and if i ever feel like i need to have a cigarette, i take a few hits on the E-cig and that need just pretty much goes, Rinse and Repeat until you lose your smoking habit. 

What To Do Next
You can order a Nicolites electronic cigarette from amazon. It costs around £21 with the P&P. If its out of stock then click "new" to be taken to another seller on amazon that has it in stock.
