The most wasteful time Judie and I spent at CES was the hour and a half we had at the Casio Press Conference. They really had nothing of substance to show us yet they made it out to be a huge deal.Yes, it wasted our time but, more than that, the hyperbole they used in their ridiculous attempt to makeRead more
My friend David just pointed me toward some of the best proof of just how deeply tablets have already penetrated. (Or should I say… TABLET… singular)
Take a look at this shot form the New York Times homepage… see something funny?
Yes, as David pointed out the text says TAP not CLICK.
TAP as in on an iPad…
Just about a year ago I reviewed the G-Pen-M609X from Genius, and I used it with my netbook. Yes, back then I was using a netbook, but then again, that was “BiP” … Before iPad. My conclusion was quite positive. I wrote
Overall I have been impressed with the G-Pen M609. Used as a pen-enabled mouse/trackpad it allows me

Just Yesterday Makershed.com started selling a Pixel Qi 10.1″ Do-It-Yourself screen kit and they are already out of stock and accepting preorders. If you’ve been living under a rock and are not familiar with Pixel Qi, then you should know this highly coveted technology is basically a normal viewable color screen indoors, and a super
I love using my fingers as my stylus and mouse on the iPad. At times, in fact, I find myself trying to tap the screen of my MacBook Pro or iMac only to realize that they aren’t touchscreens… yet. At the same time, there are some times when I want to use a stylus. For example, if I want to

Intel confirmed at IDF 2009 (Intel Developers Conference) that they expect manufacturers to ship Light Peak sometime in 2011. Light Peak is a connection technology similar to what USB devices do now, except it operates at 10gbps. That’s 10 gigabits per second connection rate, which is double the speed of USB 3.0, and about 20 times
Earlier today I had the opportunity to meet with Jeanniey Mullen, the Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) of Zinio. I’ve been reading Zinio’s digital magazines for years going all the way back to my first Tablet PC. Most recently I was wowed when they unveiled their iPhone app. Using “out of the box” thinking they were able to revision
A number of years ago I wanted to begin moving toward having a “paperless” life. I was tired of being swamped by piles of paper. It was getting out of control. The first step in my trying to unclutter my life (it is still “in process”) was to purchase a high-speed scanner. I did a good deal of research andRead more
I have been more than a bit quiet about the whole hubbub surrounding the potential for Apple announcing a tablet sometime in 2010. Part of it has to do with the fact that I’ve gotten so caught up in the rumors in the past… only to be disappointed each time. I don’t like being disappointed and am trying to avoidRead more
I like my Livescribe PulsePen… a lot. It is, in fact, one of my most used gadgets and is up there as one of my best purchases of the year, if not the decade. The pen offers tons of “wow that’s really neat” the first (or one hundredth) time you use it, but also has real, practical uses that fitRead more
I’ve always wanted to try a graphics tablet and was appreciative when Genius was willing to send me a G-Pen M609X to review and then continue using. When I opened the box I was immediately impressed. The tablet looks good, is well designed and, while light, feels quite sturdy.
I’ve been using it for a while now and have to
I just missed posting this review in time for Texas’ Spring Break, but it should still be timely for everyone who plans on traveling this summer. I’ll warn you now though, in order to use this product you’ll need to give up one of your vehicle’s cup-holders.
Why would I ask for something so uncivilized?
Because by giving up a
I have a weakness for small leather goods. I love bags and pouches and cases more than your average bear. (Wow! It feels good to get that off my chest.)
As a leather lover, I have long been aware of Vaja and the magnificent cases they make. My problem has always been that I never seem to have a phone
One of most laptop’s main limitations is their battery life, which can usually only be relied upon for a few hours. This hindrance is never more evident that when traveling, because finding a place to recharge in airports and train stations can be a major challenge. On January 1, 2008, carrying extended batteries will become a little bit trickier whenRead more
I have had my MacBook Pro for about 6 months now, and for the most part I have been very happy with it. The one issue that has been with it from the beginning is battery life. While it may be quite a powerful laptop, the 2.5hrs battery life (I have seen less more than once) is just plain slack.Read more
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
[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
The i.Tech Bluetooth Virtual Keyboard has been on my list of must-try items ever since I first heard about it – which if I remember correctly was in 2003!
The first time I saw pictures of a keyboard which worked by beaming a red�laser display on any flat surface, my inner geek did a happy dance! This is a product
