News for Thursday August 30th 2012


Happy Thursday! Yep it’s time for the news once again and then I’ve got a lot of work to do. I’ve got the Giada A51 mini PC review to finish, hopefully I’ll get that up tomorrow, but before that I’ve got a camera case and an HDMI adapter or splitter review to get posted as well. Then there’s everything else to get finished as well, anyway, read the news and check back later for more news and a review.
