    Addonics HDMU3 Mini HDD Duplicator Station

    By Victor Oshiro | Posted February 14, 2013 at 10:06AM
    Oleg came in contact with Addonics at this year's CES. When I Googleed Addonics I got Addonics: Making Data Storage Simple. To me that's a huge claim for any company to make. Why? We've seen so many types of removable media come and go and various formats that OEM manufacturers have adopted and...
  • The Apple iWatch Rumors Just Became Apple iWatch Reports

    By Victor Oshiro | Posted February 11, 2013 at 10:14AM
    The idea of trying to watch Facebook videos or read e-mail on a watch just doesn't appeal to me. I stopped wearing a watch a few years ago just because quite literally there's a clock around me at all times - my phone, computers at work, on the walls, etc. Now I'm supposed to be web connected...

    Mionix Ensis 320 Mousepad

    By Victor Oshiro, Quincy Oshiro | Posted February 5, 2013 at 08:28AM
    Recently we reviewed the Mionix 8200 Mouse. Mionix was kind enough to also send their Ensis 320 Mousepad at the same time. At first a mouse pad may seem like a throwback but after using this unit I was surprised how well it works with gaming and everyday work.

  • This easy hack adds wireless charging to Samsung Galaxy S3

    By Victor Oshiro | Posted February 3, 2013 at 06:16PM
    Here's a neat short article for adding wireless charging. Take note that in one photo the copper tape on the battery connectors looks dangerously close to each other - if you can't separate them more then add an insulator in between them. Once you close the case the tape could touch and short...

  • 5 new Apple products for 2013

    By Victor Oshiro | Posted January 10, 2013 at 10:55AM
    Most of this isn't new information but seems like the release dates have firmed up for a lot of products. I think the June release for the iPhone 5s is more realistic as the phone releases are usually closely tied to OS updates for older phones. Check out the article here.

    Peavey Valveking 100 watt Tube Amplifier

    By Victor Oshiro | Posted January 9, 2013 at 11:26AM

    I recently came across this amplifier on a fluke – a Craigslist ad with an unbelievable price. If the price is right I’m always willing to try new guitar gear out even if I already have equipment that fills that role. Enter the Valveking which I found in fantastic condition – one...

  • Valve makes the Steam Box official

    By Victor Oshiro | Posted January 9, 2013 at 10:05AM
    nVidia just announced the release of a gaming system yesterday and today Valve announces their intention to release a gaming system. Competition is good but profit margins in consoles are surprisingly low. Both Microsoft and Sony make their money on monthly subscriptions to their respective...
  • Lenovo's New Coffee Table Computer Is One Big Gigantic iPad

    By Victor Oshiro | Posted January 7, 2013 at 12:19PM
    The title of this article is a little deceiving as this unit runs Windows 8 and a new OS called Aura (anyone know if this is Android based?). We'll get more details as CES continues since Oleg is there this week. I have to go back to work so I won't get one of these in a swag bag - just kidding...

  • Happy New Year! No real surprises in this article but this is the first report I've seen with a tentative release date. Samsung hit a home run with the Galaxy phones so it stands to reason a larger screen is in the iPhone's future. What is odd is the idea that there may be different screen sizes...
  • Well if you can't buy em take their idea and make it your own. Then have your CEO involved with writing code to put a 'positive' spin on the whole idea. Wait - what?
