Pictures of a possible ‘Dell Mini’ desktop PC and direct competitor for the Mac Mini have leaked on tinarwebz. Although this machine will always be handicapped because of Windows as OS and not Mac OS, it looks really sexy. Except for the name: Dell Inspiron Zino HD?
The Zino HD comes with HDMI port and at least 6 USB connections. There also seems to be a card reader at the front. Sexy looks but sadly my 24″ desktop monitor is rather old fashioned and only has VGA and DVI-D connecters. The Dell Inspiron Zino doesn’t seem to offer the stackable options we know from the Mac Mini either. I love how you can stack Mac Mini, Apple Airport and external harddrive to form one massive heater! [Read more…]
When thinking back to previous computer usage it is somewhat funny to remember how data storage has increased exponentially over the years and probably beating Moore’s Law by miles. I still remember the day people told me why we needed a 486SX (25Mhz) with a whopping 170MB HDD. In more recent times I was happy to have a a laptop with 120GB HDD space. Until some months ago that is. When I upgraded my white MacBook to a unibody with 250GB HDD this Spring I also ditched the ‘it’s a laptop’ concept and started carrying more and more media files with me. 30GB quickly became a 100GB partition with less than 20GB available.
The same 20GB barrier has been crushed weeks ago already on my main partition, the OS one.
20GB being important here because it is the moment my OCD gets triggered and I start panicking about not having enough of free space on my drives. Yes, 20GB free space makes me panic!
No need to say that I need a portable external hard drive, but what size to settle for. Fear no more, if you suffer the same problem as I do: Western Digital has just presented 2 new models of it’s My Passport Essential SE series. [Read more…]

Crysis developer Crytek has threatened its home country, Germany, to leave the country if the ban on violent games isn’t lifted.
“A ban on action games in Germany is concerning us because it is essentially like banning the German artists that create them,” he told PC Games Germany. “If the German creative community canâ€™t effectively participate in one of the most important cultural mediums of our future, we will be forced to relocate to other countries.”
“The current political discussion will deprive German talent of its place on the global game development stage, and deprive German consumers of entertainment that is considered safe and fun around the world.”
Boot your Software Update up because the Cupertino nerds have decided to update Mac OS X.5 once more. Leopard now reaches 10.5.8 status and for months already so-called pundits have been saying that the most recent update the latest for Leopard was until the release of Snow Leopard. We here at Gadzooki will not make any such claims as we do not consider ourselves Apple pundits, instead we will tell you what’s new in 10.5.8:
More than with any other 3G smartphone, iPhone users love to bitch and complain about the battery performance of their Jesus Phone. It must be said that the battery life isn’t too great but I am not aware of any powerful smart phone which lasts longer than a day if used in as often online, as music player and feed reader as I do with my iPhone.
Fact is, we are Apple users and just love to complain about these 3% imperfections of our expensively paid devices.
The X-Power 1 is another attempt at helping out iPhone users and offering them a better battery life on the road. And it’s one more failure.
