Jeffs Reviews

I review computer hardware and software, consumer electronics, kitchen gadgets and tools. Almost all I know about computers comes from hands on learning on the internet on my own, no classes or college in computers. I have built a few computers on my own and do all the work for all the reviews I write, contacting the companies myself and asking for things I am interested in purchasing myself. I work hard to bring you my opinions of the things I review and hope you enjoy my writing.

Zer01 The way Cell Phones are Going, I Hope!

I saw a press release from Zer01, a new cell phone company that is very interesting.

They are offering a cell phone plan that is upfront payment with no contracts and no limits. Seems that people are finally getting something they want without all the hassles of contracts tying them down for years. They will be starting in June with some Beta testing first and looks like they will be able to convert your own phone to their plan.

Way to go, check them out here: Zer01 Mobile

Cyberdyne & Robots

I came across a newsletter from DVICE about a real company in Japan that is making robotic suites for people to wear that will help them in rehab after injuries called an exoskeleton. The suit looks a lot like those scifi things in movies, wait wasn't there some movie about a company called Cyberdyne, big film with robots that took over the world.

Nah, couldn't be the same company. By the way the companies name is not the only movie reference, HAL is the name of the suit, Hybrid Assistive Limb. The suit looks really cool and could really help a lot of people.
