One of the first things I noticed about my new FujitsuT4215 was that it gets pretty hot while running in laptop mode. See, there’s this vent on the left hand side, and it cranks out heat like there’s no tomorrow…and the bottom of the laptop get’s pretty warm, too. Which is why it seemed particularly timely when I received aRead more
Chris Davies of SlashGear fame has gone through a recent move which left him without reliable internet service for an excruciating two weeks, and believe me – I had to hear all about it from him, too!
So to back up for a moment…about the same time he received the Samsung Z560 review unit from T-Mobile UK, he also received
eWEEK seem to have gotten a bit confused by what constitutes a Smartphone, because one of these phones does not belong.
Apple’s recently announced iPhone has been widely criticized for being a closed platform, not open to 3rd party developers, which rules it out as being a Smartphone in the true sense. While not a very comprehensive list, up tillRead more
Computer busted, and you don’t know what to do? Need to transfer 10GB of data to your new computer from your old one, and that external hard disk isn’t being recognized by your old system any more? Support contract expired and you need help? Hey, no problem! Call the Geek Squad!
Yeah, yeah, I know; I sound like a commercial.
I’ve always enjoyed reviewing the laptop bags offered by Mobile Edge, because they make some of the best looking and most reasonably priced computer totes available. Today I am going to take a close look at the Monaco Notebook Case, which from the outside appears to be a stylish but still somewhat conservative laptop bag, but its brightly coloredRead more
No, this isn’t going to be a rant against warez, DRM or eBooks on MIRC. It is a question from me about how to handle sites like this (which I hate linking to, but I want you to see what they are doing), that lift and post entire reviews from Gear Diary and other similar sites.
I got a call
One of the first things I realized after getting my Zune was that although listening to it through a premium set of earphones was nice, there were going to be plenty of times when I wouldn’t want to hear my music that way. Times when I would want to hear it playing over a better sounding system than the craptasticRead more
One of the features that I’ve been enjoying on my new Fujitsu T4215 Tablet PC is the biometric scanner, and what’s funny is that it wasn’t something I even planned on using. I don’t need no stinkin’ finger scanner! Yeah right…
The fact of the matter is that any time I bring my laptop along anywhere, it’s an open invitation
When I heard about fire and ice coexisting together in the form of the Thaw made by Mathmos and sold by ThinkGeek, I was very curious as to what really goes on inside the shiny silver casing of the Thaw. Up until now, I never heard of putting fire and ice together in any form. I though to myselfRead more
As promised, here are a couple comparision photos of the Treo 750, 700wx and the 6945. I didn’t grab the SX66 for this session because it was on the other side of the house and I’ve got a few different things to do tonight, and didn’t want to be away from the PC long enough to grab it. It willRead more
Alright, alright, settle down! Just because you are looking at a picture of a pink headset, there is no excuse to dismiss the product as “not something I’d be interested in.” It’s also available in a unisex silver; I just wanted to try something different.
With that out of the way, let me tell you about how I gained first-hand
After my recent, somewhat disappointing experience with the Cowon A2 –and yup, I did in fact return the device–it was time to move on and try another of the available personal media players (PMPs) out on the market. This time, it’s the Creative Zen Vision W. (If you’re into unboxings, take a look at my unboxing on the VisionRead more
With the National Football League in high gear for the SuperBowl February 4, 2007, I’m reminded of SuperBowls past.
Perhaps your favorite team didn’t make the playoffs – there’s always next year! If not, the following year!
Back in the late nineties, the National Football League chose Sprint to be the league’s official telecommunications provider. Sprint produced a promotional commemorative
I left the room for a minute, and I guess my Palm got lonely.Read more
With the increasing amount of time that people are spending on their computers these days, be it for work or pleasure, eating and drinking in front of the computer is commonplace. With this comes the risk of spilling that coffee or cup of Diet Coke (Judie :P), or dropping crumbs of that cookie into your keyboard, where they will literallyRead more
How did you ring in 2007?
At about 11:50, I got online and placed my last gadget order of 2006 at the Fujitsu site, buying the T4215 Tablet PC. It has been an agonizing 20 days waiting for my first non-UMPC tablet to show up, but it finally shipped from Osaka Japan on the 15th and arrived late
If you own a Smartphone with hard numeric buttons or a Pocket PC Phone Edition with an always visible keyboard such as the Treo, then you probably don’t need the program I’ll be talking about today. But if you have a Pocket PC Phone Edition that is all screen with very few hard buttons – such as the HTC UniversalRead more
I can’t remember the last time we had this much snow! For those of you that are in Australia – ahem, Mitchell and Jenneth – enjoying your 100 degree summer heat, let this pictorial be a reminder of the freaky things nature is doing in Texas…
Sarah woke me up at 5 am this morning to see the snow. She
The Nokia N800 has been introduced at CES and all of the talk on the Linux based device websites has been about this new device. While I don’t have a N800 yet, I do have a Nokia 770 Internet Tablet and Judie has asked me to write my thoughts about it for Gear Diary. I want to thank Judie forRead more
It just looks like a naked black Zune lying there, right? But looks can be deceiving.This particular Zune has a Belkin ClearScreen Overlay in place, which means that even when it is rattling around the bottom of my Whiskey Chloe Edith, it’s screen will not get scratched by the keys or other pointy objects riding nearby.Read more
Q. Hi Judie,
I’m writing to you because I’ve read on geardiary that someone asked you for advice on buying a PDA; I have a couple of doubts in buying my first PDA and I was wondering if you could help me…
The first and basic use I would give to this PDA is internet surfing, emailing (both by WiFi),
[Ed. note: this review picks up where the Unboxing left off. If you haven't already read it, read the i.Tech Virtual Keyboard Unboxing first.]
This past month with the i.Tech Bluetooth Virtual Keyboard has been a bit of a roller coaster ride for me. During this time, I have managed to learn way more about Bluetooth Stacks and Windows XP
This past August in Nashville, Tennessee it was too hot to be outside to do any yard work, so I decided to work on a project in the comfort of air conditioning.
Everything I do or build is a mentally consuming exercise. I Google for ideas, pictures and documentation. Later I sketch, process and make the commitment to get it
