  1.  Life of Brian but in glorious High Def!

    Posted: 

    I'd read the reviews of this before deciding to buy it as I was worried about the possible quality of a film which came out originally in 1979.

    I need not of worried! everything previously written about the amazing quality of the transfer to Blu-ray is true! It really is a labour of love by the kind people at Sony that they lovingly restored this great film to it's former glory (if not better than the original cinima release!) Plenty of features including two different commentary tracks by some of the Pythons themselves. If you are a fan of the Pythons and have access to a Blu-ray player you absolutely owe it to yourselves to buy this masterpiece.

  2.  Teleatlas Maps not a match for Navteq Maps

    Posted: 

    I recently "upgraded" from a Garmin i3 (running Navteq Maps) to a Tomtom Go 710. This was a carefully chosen product based on the fact that I would be driving in Norway. I selected tbe Tomtom Go 710 as they claimed to have the most complete maps of Europe installed including 99% coverage of Norway. Many of the locations I am visiting are not mapped on the Teleatlas product! However, it turns out that the corresponding Navteq maps DO have these locations! In the UK I have only been using the Tomtom for about 600 miles and in that time I have found more map inaccuracies (or Normalisation issues as Tomtom call them) than I had found in 2 years and 15,000 miles of use of the i3 (including numorous occasions where Tomtom tries to navigate me the wrong way up a one way street!) The optional TMC unit is also very sporadic in its functionality. Given the purchasing choice again I would chose a Garmin Nuvi 660 (slightly more expensive but you get what you pay for!) On the plus sides the numerous customisable features are nice. I think all in all if Tomtom stuck to Navteq maps they would be able to offer a much more complete product for slightly more money. I was also annoyed to buy the Go 710 with the "Latest Maps" only to find out that the month later the next version was out. Tomtom want about £100 to upgrade with a still wildly inaccurate map. I would pay somewhere in this region for a Navteq map, but would not put my hand in my pocket for another Teleatlas product as they are not accurate enough to warrant my hard earned money.
