About The Review "system"
System...? We're supposed to have a system to reviews? Just
kidding. In all honesty, though, I've never been much of a fan for
"grading" entertainment. If you wish for such a grading system,
feel free to use the following system on a sumerical basis; where
"deep impact" is 5 out of 5, and Burnout is one. Okay...?
However, why not have fun with a more
amusing ratings system...? Here at Techtite.com, we try to
have a little fun with the ratings we give, in the spirit of actual tektites. Actual tektites are fragments
of rock that, scientists presume, are originated from small meteors
and other debris that fell through the Earth atmosphere. The Techtite ratings system is based on that same amusing principle
Thumbs way, way down. This is the product that does everything
wrong, or close to it!
Thumbs marginally down. A potential candidate for
the "What Went Wrong"
department someday, this was the product with great promise,
though made one too many mistakes to recommend.
Thumbs Marginally UP. Worth paying for, if you

Think: the meteor that struck Earth and changed all life as we
know it. Revolutionary. Perhaps even evolutionary. The best
rating possible at Techtite.com. Must buy these!
To the more literal web site(s),
As of this site's fifth anniversary, 2004, this picture rating system
has been updated with a star guide underneath
the rating icons. All reviews posted on or after January 2004 will be
updated with the new guide. In the case of older reviews, for sites
that prefer the five-star rating method: consider each icon one
additional star, with Burnout one out of five stars, and Deep
Impact being the complete five.
Review Submissions are always accepted! Don't agree
with a review here? No problem! Write a review that is as elaborate
as one of the ones here, and we just may add it to the site,

"forum"; it will be put alongside all other reviews
here, for all the world to see, in style! For more on
