    By Victor Oshiro | Posted March 5, 2013 at 10:15AM
    Obihai Technology just sent in a bunch of neat products to demonstrate their VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) technology. With VoIP a user can make phone calls to other users using data over the internet rather than through a conventional phone line. Why would anyone want to do this? Cost....

    By Victor Oshiro | Posted March 3, 2013 at 10:38AM
    This last CES was a boon for us with great products to work with. Today we are going to look at one product that may be the most useful product of the entire show. EnerPlex was kind enough to send both an iPhone 4s and Samsung Galaxy S III Surfr for review. What's a Surfr? How about an external...

    By Victor Oshiro | Posted February 27, 2013 at 10:32AM
    Currently Windows 8 isn't selling well for old hardware users who normally upgrade their OS after MS releases one. Add to that the fact that browser usage is way down for MS. Now comes this story which may bolster IE against its competitors.

    LifeProof iPhone cases

    By Victor Oshiro | Posted February 17, 2013 at 05:34PM
    LifeProof recently sent in two of their iPhone cases for evaluation. One for iPhone 4S and one for iPhone 5. Previously with my iPhone I've been using an Otter Box case. I liked that it had a rigid case that was surrounded by a soft rubber case. Sadly, after about of a year of use my Otter Box...

    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...

    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

    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
