Around two weeks ago at “http://www.palmislife.com/“, we had a group purchase activity for buying complete set of Treo 650 Housing as replacement
No, I am not full of myself – I just got tagged twice in one day! First Chris, and then Alison…so a double tag means I get to cheat and do them together. Ha!
The rules are that I have to post five things that you may not already know about me, which is going to be hard, but here
My Treo started playing up recently, with random software crashes and some sort of battery drain. It got to the point where my Treo would only last 6hrs without any use before it would be dead. I had also just received my MacBook Pro, but I couldn’t get it to sync with it, so I decided it was time forRead more
When I bought my latest laptop I envisioned spending more time sitting on the office couch, versus time spent sitting at my desk. In this lovely fantasy, I would no longer sit with my back half-turned to the room; instead I would have my feet propped on an ottoman, with WiFi streaming to the laptop on my lap, and GizmoRead more
It’s hard to believe that this will be my fourth Lumaray LED flashlight review, but it’s true. Every time Lumaray releases a new light, I have to wonder what they could possibly do to improve upon their past version, but each time they manage to surprise and impress me.
Let’s take a trip down memory lane, shall we?
If you haven’t yet succumbed to the Apple iPod shuffle, then you might be interested in taking a look at another flash-based MP3 player that not only costs less, it can be configured to carry significantly more music for the same amount of money. I’m talking about the Brando USB MP3 Player + SD/MMC Card Reader, a device which sharesRead more
Ultimate Theft Alert is an application that runs hidden in the background and monitors the SIM card in your Windows Mobile Phone Edition device. It is designed to send an SMS message from your phone in the event that the SIM card is changed.
Installation is just like a regular Windows Mobile application, but configuration requires a little digging inRead more
My ex’s grandfather is 88 years old. Papa, as we call him, was stationed in Pearl Harbor and Saipan during World War II, and to this day he won’t ride a plane because of experiences during the war. This means that he doesn’t travel anywhere unless it is accessible by car or rail. Papa has three children, eight grandchildren, andRead more

The Targus ACC82AP is a 3-in-1 retractable Phone(RJ-11)/Ethernet(RJ-45)/USB cable set. Let’s take a look before unboxing…
Well, I did it. I didn’t think I would, at least for a while, but I did it. I bought the big screen LCD TV, I bought the DVD player, I bought the AV receiver and home theater speakers, and I ordered digital cable. It was a sad day for my wallet, but a happy day for me. It’s somethingRead more
As many of you know, I bought a Zune shortly after they became available. While it has managed to stay amazingly scratch-free due to its durable casing material, I still don’t feel comfortable letting it roll around in the bottom of my bag. Shortly after it arrived, the hunt for a good case was on!
One of the cases that
In my job as a computer tech, I have seen it all – from the simply surprising to the most horrifying thing that can happen to a computer and its hard drive. These are just a few of my stories…
A Western Digital 172AA arrived in numerous pieces, and it was totally wrecked. According to the customer, a pin on
I could whine about the fact that my elderly home doesn’t have enough electrical outlets for all my gadgets, but the fact is that even a newer house probably wouldn’t have enough outlets in the exact places where I would need or want them. Add to that problem a pressing need for surge protection, and it becomes obvious that aRead more
Some days it seems as if I have seen just about every form a USB flash memory device could take, but every now and then a product will come along and make me think “hey, that was a great idea!” The Brando USB Flash Card is just such an item.
Measuring 3.4″ long x 2.1″ wide x 0.15″ thick, the
Ever since I applied my first screen protector on my XDA II Mini I have been hooked. Since then, I have purchased a screen protector for every device I own, from PDAs, to phones, iPods and cameras.
I have only ever used one brand of screen protector and I have not yet found any reason to change. That brand is
Many thanks to Vincent for filming this video as he and I peppered a patient Samsung executive with SPH-P9000 questions.
There’s also another video taken during the luncheon where Dale Sohn (President of Samsung, North America) and Muzibul Khan (VP of Samsung Product Management & Enginnering) show off the P9000.
The keyboard looks pretty rigid in this second video, so
I am the first to admit that I don’t know everything there is to know about the different wireless data protocols and their acronyms, but I generally have a good idea of what each is and what the initials used mean. CDMA, WiFi, UMTS, EDGE, GPRS, EVDO, Bluetooth…no problem, I’ve got it. But until this week I had never heardRead more
Over a month ago G-A told me he was going to post about the new SPH-P9000 UMPC with a built in keyboard, and I couldn’t wait to see it in person. Today, I finally did.
Take a look, and tell me what you think…
This has been a very, very difficult review for me to write. Most gadgets, I find I either like them, or dislike them, or just feel kind of “eh” about them. The Cowon A2, on the other hand, arouses some pretty powerful conflicting feelings in me. I’ll try to give you all a full idea why throughout the review, butRead more
Tonight sure felt like a reunion of sorts! Joel from Geek.com and I met at the Borders Bookstore Cafe in the Time Warner Building to have a quick cafe latte and try out the Zune‘s WiFi sharing capabilities while we had a chance. More on that in the upcoming Zune review.
Once we got upstairs to the Samsung event,
I just got into New York for tonight’s Samsung’s 10th Anniversary (in the US) Party & Dinner and tomorrow’s Mobile Tech Summit. You should see this cute hotel room I’m staying in…”cute” meaning little and snug.Read more
