Review: Bullguard Internet Security [Windows]

Bullguard Internet Security 9.0 is the latest version of Bullguard’s well known internet security software. While I frequently write about free software options, Bullguard is one of the few paid apps I can definitely suggest. The price is about $60/year and the subscription is worth every penny. The latest version has a great new look with a new interface that’s simple, clean and easy to use.  The main screen presents you with a number of icons – each of which allows you to perform a different security task with a simple click of your mouse.

The icons on the main screen are:

Review: Expedia TripAssist for the iPhone

I’ve been a fan of Expedia as my source of travel information for quite a while, but recently I’ve become pretty impressed with updates to their iPhone application. The best feature of the newest version I believe is the TripAssist feature. The basic premise is that you can check all details of your itinerary and it will let you know where and when you’re to be somewhere within 24 hours of your trip. It tells you gates, times, has sliding screens that let you see each leg of your trip, what seats you can get, and best of all you don’t have to book through Expedia to use it! It is very easy to add trip information no matter where you booked.

More (yes MORE) free and great iPhone apps!

My laptop went on the fritz this morning, so now I am looking at laptops online to find a good replacement. I hope to find a great laptop that is affordable but also offers a lot of the features I need to be productive. offers great laptop reviews, so I have been checking this site out when I find a laptop I like on and and vice-versa. Since I often try to buy laptops on clearance, because the price is a lot more reasonable, and because I do not need the top of the line, latest features that come on today’s laptops.

Review: Untwisted Vortex

It’s been a while since I’ve done a blog review, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t let you guys know about Untwisted Vortex, written by RT.

I couldn’t tell you how I came across this site, but I am glad I did! There’s content for most of us out there, whether we are blogging for money or not. I enjoy RT’s writing style. He writes with passion, authority and humor – three things I think are most important when writing/blogging.

Review: Amazon Kindle

KindleRave reviews and complaints galore abound all over the blogosphere about Amazon’s Kindle, the new portable book reader, which only weights 10.3 ounces – far less than the weight of the three or four books I typically carry on vacations or even short trips across the state.

The Kindle’s price tag at $399 299 may seem steep for some – but once you consider that the price of Kindle’s book offerings average 50-65% off print prices, you’ll be able to purchase more books for the same price that you would have spent on “real” books! Additionally, there’s no cost for the wireless access!
