What’s Up Wednesdays: What I’ve Been Writing

RetroDuo Portable V2.0 - MEGATechNews.com

Normally on What’s Up Wednesdays, I gather up five interesting blog posts from around the Internet and share them with the Beyond the Rhetoric community. This week, I’ve decided to share some of the other articles that I have been writing on the web. It’s been several months since the last time I’ve done this, so I thought you may be curious about some of the other content I’ve posted on the web.

Of course, please don’t hesitate to contact me if you need some writing work done too.

MEGATech Reviews – RetroDuo Portable Version 2.0 Core Edition NES/SNES Handheld
From MEGATechNews.com

Can you imagine taking the original Double Dragon out on a road trip? Or how about enjoying Super Mario Bros. 3 while waiting at the dentist’s office? It’s great how well this works, but the real problem is the sheer size and bulk of that RetroPort adapter. With the sizable NES cartridge inserted, the overall protrusion from the console is almost double the height of the RDP2 itself. That’s awfully ungainly.

BlackBerry Z10 Smartphone Review
From MobileMag.com

People who are coming from legacy BlackBerry products may face some confusion with BlackBerry 10. There is no BlackBerry button, for example, nor is there is a hardware back button. Just about everything is done via gestures and many of these originate from off the screen, not unlike webOS.

Gamify Your Life With HabitRPG
From SmartLifeBlog.com

One of the more interesting methods to consider for this is called gamification and one of the newest tools to hit the web for this purpose is HabitRPG. It gamifies all the things that you have to do each day, placing them in the context of an SNES-era role playing game. Children of the 80s and 90s will certainly appreciate this retro appeal.

Eightarc Fusion Synthesis Professional Arcade Stick Unboxing Video

Maybe you have an Xbox 360, but your buddy has a PS3 and you guys want to play Street Fighter together. Normally, you’d have to have separate FightSticks from Hori, Mad Catz or whoever else for the two different consoles, but that’s not the case with Qanba and Eightarc products. One excellent example is the Eightarc Fusion Synthesis, which works across the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

CodeGuard Automatic Full Website Backup Service
From BloggingTips.com

Manual backups can be time-consuming and unreliable. It makes far more sense to consider a service like that offered by CodeGuard. They promise to give you a “time machine for your website,” completely automating the backup process and storing all that vital data to the cloud.

    You always write interesting articles Michael. One thing I have never asked is: have any of your reviews resulted in a change in your use of technology? Have you replaced a piece of technology that you were using with one like you had reviewed?

    • Michael Kwan says:

      In a sense, yes. Reviewing a number of different products over a more extended period of time gives me a better perspective on what I like (and don’t like), as well as what features are (and aren’t) important to me. This has helped me in deciding on new digital camcorders, Ultrabooks and smartphones, in particular.
