Unlocking my Rogers Samsung Galaxy Note SGH i717 proved to be a daunting task and it did not have to be. I received 20 pages of information with “How to enter unlock code” for several dozen Samsung models, none of which was my own and much of which was repetitive, from GSMlibery where I paid for and from whom I received my unlock code.

Onkyo TX-SR313 Home Theatre Receiver My review on Onkyo TX-SR313 Home Theatre Receiver is a personal one and comes from the desire to buy the best at the lowest price.

The Kobo Broken Screen Believe it or not, the Kobo broken screen is not cracked, it just looks that way because the e-ink is producing this effect. This is what happens when it is accidentally bumped. And according to Kobo, at least those with whom I’ve spoken, it is not covered under the warranty. This, in my opinion, is a design flaw.
