We got our hands on two different cases for the iPad 2 from a company called ZENUS. We had not seen their offerings previously but were immediately impressed by the sheer number and variety of cases they have available. The first of the two cases we’ll look at is the ZENUS iPad 2 Leather Case ‘Prestige’ HandCraft Stitch Pouch Series.Read more
Have you ever taken a good look at the space just in front of you when the morning sun shines directly in your windows? If you have pets or live anywhere other than in a hermetically sealed envelope, you are probably used to seeing fine floating particles that are nearly unidentifiable … but if you have allergies they are all
When a new device comes out it is almost inevitable that one of the first companies we will hear from is WaterField Designs. They make some of the most protective sleeves and cases around. Better still, their products — while not the most inexpensive — are always made from quality materials, have fantastic build-quality, and they last… and last…Read more
If you haven’t heard of the musical sub-genre ‘dubstep’, or artists like Deadmau5, Tiesto, Skrillex, and so on … I have a suggestion:
GET WITH IT!!!
Seriously, this no-words-needed, drum & bass inspired techno dance show electronic style of music is all the rage with kids, to the point where I was only slightly surprised to see the dubstep-heavy Wheetobix
This week we learned that Samsung will be the latest Android licensee paying huge royalties to Microsoft, and a general sense that the final nails in the ‘Android is free’ coffin have been hammered.
We also heard the uproar about the Spotify-Facebook linkage, and even though Spotify now has a ‘private listening mode’ they still require a Facebook
The title is misleading, since you really never know … but here are three things my kids can’t see to leave alone this week – which I suppose is better than Nyan Cat yet again!
First, we have an amazing show of ‘chicken beatboxing’ … which is beatboxing, but with chicken sounds! Yeah … just watch:
Next we have aRead more
Are you still toting your Laptop around without any protection? That will never do!
To help you safeguard your expensive portable computers, we have a selection of Skooba Design Skooba Skins!
What’s a Skooba Skin? Quite simply put, it is a slim laptop sleeve that converts to a tote with the “flip of a flap”, allowing you to “protect
This is the second of two iPad 2 cases from ZENUS that we are reviewing. This time out we are looking at the ZENUS iPad 2 Leather Case with Stand ‘Prestige’ Crocodile Sportism Series, a pearl white folio-style case made of leather that is embossed in a manner that makes it look like crocodile skin. Here’s a closer look.
Anyone old enough to remember how floppy disk drives had some very characteristic sounds will instant appreciate this video – the Imperial March from Star Wars played on two floppy disks.
According to Silent’s official site:
How does it work?
It’s nothing new and it’s very simple. The sound comes from a magnetic head moved by stepper motor. To

The other day I wrote about my frustration about the state of fragmentation in the Android ecosystem, citing my inability to buy the game Magic Defenders for my Acer Iconia A100 7″ Honeycomb-based tablet. I have been fortunate in the two of the developers from Clueless Ideas, the company making the game, have reached out to me – and

The NOOKcolor is a great device, but like all electronics it needs a certain degree of protection. Loose in a bag there are too many things that could scratch, crack, or damage the screen or plastic body. But cases that offer total protection often add significant bulk, or are awkward to hold, or have various other tradeoffs. The Speck FitFolioRead more
Today U.S. Cellular announced they are bringing three new Android devices from HTC to the market: HTC Wildfire S and HTC Hero S smartphones, and the HTC Flyer tablet. The Hero is a powerful 1.2GHz Snapdragon powered phone running Android OS Gingerbread, and has a great screen and plenty of memory and storage to handle everything you throw at it.
It is hard to believe, but not everyone wants to listen as you pump sound from video games through your home theater system. That is why there are gaming headsets to begin with – they provide a microphone, but can also provide very sensitive audio … or blast your face off with mega-sound! I use basic Apple or Sony earbuds

You can’t be too cautious these days about backing up your data. Time and time again friends, family and co-workers come to me about trying to recover pictures, music and documents on a failed or virus ridden drive. Some even have their small business data lost when the main computer goes down.
My first advice to
I recently wrote about my initial experiences with the HTC 7 Pro from U.S. Cellular and commented on some early concerns about Windows Phone 7.5, aka the ‘Mango’ update that some are touting as what will save Windows Phone and enable Microsoft to lead the smartphone market. Despite early concerns and more recent issues with Windows Phone Marketplace ‘spam’
Volkswagen is in the midst of a product transformation. For model year 2011 it completely redesigned the popular Jetta and this year they are introducing a new Passat and Beetle. While giving the vehicles more precise lines there seems to be a strong determination to clean things up and simplify design and content while at the same time placing a

In part 1 of this 3 part review series we looked at the Speck FitFolio. In part 2 we looked at the Speck BookShield. In this third and final part of the series we will look at the Speck WanderFolio for Kindle 3. Think of the WanderFolio as the big brother of the FitFolio, and you’ll
I have already posted about the 20th anniversary of Nirvana’s Nevermind being celebrated by Spin Magazine’s free set of cover songs, but today VEVO is doing something really great to celebrate the anniversary as well.
The concert isn’t presented as one big video, but rather as discrete songs on VEVO’s site. Here is a single song – Breed:
I love Tower Defense games such as Plants vs. Zombies and Fieldrunners, so when I saw a link on Google+ for a great new tablet / Honeycomb based TD game I got excited! When I heard it was a magic-based variant on the genre, I was intrigued and based on a couple of comments I was pretty well sold! Here

Today marks a new era in ultra geek timepiece technology. Tokyoflash just launched their first ever touchscreen watch known as the Rogue Touch. The Tokyoflash design team has been hard at work this year with a whole new lineup of killer watches, this is the first to combine their hybrid LED/LCD technology with a full buttonless
Last year I had a chance to review a FlipSide 2X wallet. (Read the review here.) The wallet is rather unusual. It is hardcased, offers limited storage and is RFID shielded. I love it because it has forced me to keep only a bare minimum of items with me and, after months and months of use it still
On the eve of Amazon’s expected unveiling of a 7″ Kindle tablet Toshiba has announced their 7″ entry into the ever-more crowded field. It won’t be available until December but that does mean it will be available as a holiday gift choice.
