OnLive Micro Console Bandwidth Test

There has been a lot of talk recently about OnLive. Especially after the announcement about their $9.99 a month Unlimited Game service. Now OnLive has more the one flavor. I’ve already had a chance to do a Video Bandwidth test on PC / Mac. Though I was really itching to try out the console version. Actually it’s not called a Console, it’s a Micro Console :)

I’ve had the opportunity to have some hands on time with the device. Decided it was time for another Video Bandwidth Test, this time all console. So how does the device compare? Is the OnLive service really ready for primetime? Check out my Video Bandwidth test and write up after the break.

OnLive Bandwidth Test – MacBook Pro

I’ve been using a Mac for quite sometime and there has always been one disadvantage and that’s in the gaming department. Before there was Steam Mac support there was this other option called OnLive. The concept of streaming Video Game content sounded intriguing but there was many concerns on Bandwidth. Though it was definitely something I was going to keep my eye on. With the recent news of OnLive having a $10 a month monthly charge I figured it was time for me to give it a spin.

Full Review and Video Review after the break.

Product Review: iPhone 4 Ballistic SG Series Case

When a new iPhone is released there is always that scramble to find that perfect case. I went through that very thing when picking up my iPhone 4. With a limited selection at both Apple and the AT&T stores my hopes were dashed. That was when Ballistic arrived on the scene. Previously I reviewed their first model for the iPhone the Ballistic HG. This time around they are debuting the Ballistic SG. Which is a more sleek and sexy case. I’ve had some hands on time with the SG. How does it compare to the HG? Does the SG hold up to the everyday iPhone use?

Full Review after the break.
