Satechi R1 Arm Hinge Holder Stand for Tablets @ TestFreaks



" Every once in a while a product comes along that I’m just totally impressed with and that’s what I have today. I’ve never heard of Satechi before and chances are you haven’t either but they’ve sent me over one of their latest product called the R1 and it’s a stand for tablets. Yes it’s a rather simple product, no I take that back, it’s not simple, but it’s certainly interesting.  This is just one of those products that I can’t find much wrong with and those types of products are truly few and far between. So read on… "

Dr Who Worlds in Time Goes Live


Now this is cool, I’m a big Dr Who fan and there aren’t really many games based on Dr Who and I’ve always wondered why? I’m sure they would do great if they were made well of course.

Doctor Who: Worlds in Time is designed for devotees of the show looking for a quick pick-up-and-play game, and life-long gamers and sci-fi enthusiasts seeking increased social engagement. Players choose among four races and endless possible character combinations to create their avatars. They can join together in missions identified by the mysterious Time Lord to defend civilization by undertaking interventions against infamous villains bent on creating chaos and destruction in the universe. Throughout the game, players will explore deep immersive worlds (e.g., Skaro, Messaline, The Library and New New York) featuring iconic monsters (e.g., Daleks, Cybermen and Weeping Angels), delivering the authentic experience of being part of the Doctor Who realm.

While the game is free-to-play, revenue is generated through micro-transactions. Players can enhance their experience and accelerate their progress in the game through the purchase of Chronons, which will help them to complete missions, customize their avatars, build new contraptions and more. So it’s not exactly a free game after all is it? the basic game is and it’s rather cool really, I spent a little time with it and plan to go back and play some more when I get some time.

So go after those Daleks and Cybermen and save the world or even the universe!

You can go play the new Dr Who game for free here:

Free games are great and I know my kids spend a lot of time online visiting all of those flash based free game sites and they even like to play free bingo games online as their Mom and Grandmas got them into playing bingo. it’s fun with the cards and chips but of course the computer is better.

Pantech Link II @ TestFreaks


" Up for review today I have the Pantech Link II which is what you would call a feature phone, it’s not an amazingly high-tech assistant like other phones out there, but it gets the job done and sometimes that’s all you really need. The Link II is more of a social centric phone and it does feature a full qwerty keyboard and the capabilities we’ve come to expect from our phones like Bluetooth. The phone is very user friendly along with being thin and lightweight and best of all it’s very inexpensive."


Le Pan TC 970 Android Tablet Not Getting Update


So, sadly it’s official the Le Pan TC 970 is NOT getting any Android version past 2.2. ‘

When I first got the tablet I asked about the updated and they told me it would be getting Ice Cream Sandwich in the 4th quarter 2011, which of course we’re in right now. I had forgot about it and just remembered so I sent them off an email and this was the response I got:


The original Le Pan won’t be getting any Android OS upgrades but will receive firmware updates when needed. The TC970 does not meet the minimal specifications needed to run the new OS. It is capable of running 2.3 however the entire software of the tablet would have to be rewritten.
We really apologize that the tablet cannot be upgradable to anything past 2.2 at this point.


So no Gingerbread or anything new for the TC 970, but at least they’re still going to support it.
