When Judie asked me if I was interested in reviewing the miniSDIO version of the Spectec WiFi card similar to her SDIO one, I was thrilled. My Treo has been pretty well perfect since I got it, except for internet access. Up until recently I have had to make do with only a 10MB data allowance, which is pretty smallRead more
What kind of mouse do you like to use when you are working at your desktop? Mine is a Logitech MX 1000 Laser which I’ve had for a couple of years, and it’s still going strong. I like it so much because it fits my palm, tracks exceptionally well, has multiple scrolling and button features, and it has a long-lastingRead more
This week, I had my mother-in-law and neighbor call me with questions about their televisions. Both being in their seventies, the question was simple, yet bewildering; �My TV doesn�t work!�
One was the issue of the picture staying on after powering off the TV via the remote. The other was the inability to change channels or adjust the volume. Regardless
So let’s say that you haven’t exactly kept up with your New Year’s Resolution of doing 30 – 50 minutes a day on the treadmill, with a little bit of upper body weight lifting every other day. You didn’t think anyone would ever notice, right? Well, if you travel, you’ll now have a new reason to get your butt backRead more
I’ve mentioned before what a problem dust can be in my workspace, and nothing aggravates me more than watching it try to settle into the crevices of my keyboard. One of ways I regularly combat this unwelcome desktop addition is by blasting it with compressed air. When the folks at CO2 asked if we would be interested in taking aRead more
My Treo 750 is a fantastic device that does email, web browsing, PIM, and if you want it to it can even make phone calls. The price of all this functionality is size. The Treo is by no means a small phone. With the likes of the Dash, the Blackjack and even the JAQ3, the Treo (all models) are quiteRead more
When I was growing up, I always had at least one or two cats, and while some people will be quick to say they are “dog people”, cats were always my favorites. Well, until the sad day when it was brought to my attention that the vicious “hay-fever” and itchy eyes I was constantly suffering from were massive allergies toRead more
We’ve all seen watches that can play MP3s before, heck – I’ve reviewed two of them, and both could even serve as voice recorders. Well, today we are going to take a look at the MP4 Watch, which is the first watch I’ve tried that can not only play MP3s and record voice memos, it can also display photosRead more
First a little intro
Over the last few weeks I have been thinking about building a new PC. My current PC is fine, but that it part of the problem. It is running too fine. I am afraid if I do anything to it I might mess it up. That and the fact it cost me a fair bit sees
The love of gift cards is the root of all that is evil with money� or so say shopping purists who frown on those who purchase gift cards as lazy or lacking in the �social skills� to find the perfect gift for a friend or loved one.
Cash from Grandma on a birthday or a check as a graduation gift
Windows Mobile Device Center (WMDC) is truly pathetic. After beating on it for weeks I have come to the conclusion they have done nothing but dress up the already miserable ActiveSync. Let me just rant about the useless and frustrating error messages. Those of you who have seen 0x8000E0DF know exactly what I’m talking about. Now I just made upRead more
For some time Proporta has been known for their custom molded aluminum PDA cases as well as their Alu-Leather case line, which consists of hand-crafted leather cases with an aluminum “screen saver system”. Today wer’e going to take a look at the next generation case from Proporta: one that was created especially for the Palm Treo 700 series, and oneRead more
Treo at Last (and I’ll Never Go Hungry Again..!)
Some of the best things come in small packages. I’ve been looking at a number of different mobile devices over the past few months. Right now, I’ve got 5 WM PDA Phones, and 2 WM Smartphones. The PDA phones are mostly locked to specific carriers. I’ve got an HP 6945 and
I freely and openly admit that I have purposely avoided getting a Bluetooth headset.� It isn’t that I’m opposed to them (although I do find it funny at the airport when people forget to take them off and try to go through security!) it is just that I have never found one that I’ve been completely thrilled with.� Most ofRead more
I was looking around for a charging cradle that would allow me to store my Palm Treo 650 or 680 in an upright position. Most of the ones that I’ve seen advertised range in price from $29 to $49 USD.
While esthetically useful, the practicality of obtaining a cradle meant having yet another spare power cable and sync cable stored
I bought a brand new Toshiba Satellite A-105 laptop in late September 2006, and by the time my new Fujitsu T4215 had arrived in mid-January, I had already managed to start wearing the left leg off of the Toshiba keyboard’s silk-screened “A” button. I have no idea what my problem is, but I am really hard on keyboards; I haveRead more

The G-Force is the 21st Century’s answer to the much-loved Original Big Wheel. It provides
I’ve reviewed quite a few OtterBox PDA Cases in the past, and one of the main traits they all shared was their near indestructible tough design. Today I am going to take a look at Otterbox’s answer to the traditional laptop case. Obviously their version wouldn’t be made of Cordura, leather, or any other “girly” material. To stay true toRead more
Reading Slashdot this morning, I read a post linking to an article on RollingStone asking the question “Is Apple the New Evil Empire?”. The article goes on to describe the various ways that Apple has silently dominated various markets, especially the digital audio market, even though it is Microsoft who are the subject of discussion regarding monopoly and control.
