CSN Review

I love a good le creuset (cookset) and the guys over at CSN stores hooked us up and we will be reviewing one of their products. Right now I am leaning toward this massage chair!

Thanks again CSN!

MLB.TV Review (PS3)

This is an unbiased review. I am not being paid to review this product and the reviews is based on my personal opinion.

I am not only a Yankee fan but a fan of baseball. Nothing brings me more joy than sitting back and watching a baseball game. Unfortunately the Yankees are not on all day so I was really considering subscribing to my cable companies baseball package "MLB extra innings".

Earlier this week the MLB and PS3 teamed up to bring MLB.TV streaming capabilities onto the PS3. When I saw this I became very excited due to the fact MLB.TV undercut what I was going to pay my cable company by 60 dollars (it would have been 80 but I got the premium package). I jumped on ordering up MLB.TV and linking it to my PS3.

The PS3 app is very smooth. The dashboard (pictured below) provides a live scoreboard and even while you are watching a game you can click O and go back to the dashboard. All games are streamed in HD depending on your internet connection and the picture looks great. I have had a few slight pauses but I think that is just the broadcast not the service. There is one small gripe that I do have, the screen is not completely filled up. There are two small bars on either side and even thinner bars at the bottom and top. They don't really detract from the viewing experience but when it comes to HD anything I become very picky.

If you are a fan baseball in general this is for you 100%. Great picture quality, fast loading times (for me), awesome interface. If you live out of your favorite teams area this would also be a great service to pick up.

Review: iPhone App MLB At Bat 2009

This app is awesome. As you should know I have an iPhone and I recently purchased this app. Not only does this provide you with live MLB gameday-like setup it also allows you to listen to each game. The gameday view is solid and you can also check the box score, field positioning, recaps and video. When listening live you can pick which team's announcers you want to hear. You can use this app anytime you have service because it works on EDGE, 3G and Wi-Fi and there is no blackouts. The one problem is that you have to re-buy this app every year (subscription-based). However the 10$ it costs is well worth it. This is the first year that I have bought it and well defiantly purchase it next year.

I give it a 9/10

NYY and the Meaning of Life

The wonderful people from MVP books sent me over a copy of New York Yankees and the Meaning of Life. This is small book chock full of quotes and beautiful pictures. I sat down and starting flipping through and 40 minutes later I set it down. I read everything, from the quote to the little descriptions. This book has beautiful photos that match the memorable quotes. I found a lot of things I have never seen/heard of, which is always great. Forever will it have a place on my coffee table. For only $16.00 on Amazon this is a great book to have (also it makes a great mouse-pad)

10/10 Highly Recommended

This is an independent review, though they sent my the book (free!) that did not factor into my review process. Believe me if something sucks, I will tell you
