Rating 4.00 out of 5 [?]For many years I have owned numerous laptops and used the typical black canvas laptop carry cases. These have been great but on many occasions just too big to carry just the laptop and power supply in. I have tried some laptop sleeves also but these were too flimsy to protect […]
At 9:15 am this morning, I had the privilege of interviewing Colleen Lerro from the Consumer Electronics Association over the telephone. For those not familiar with the CEA, CEA produces the annual CES (Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas). If you have never been to the Consumer Electronics Show, you have to make a trek at least once to experience this grand showcase in person of thousands of new consumer products.
Wassop! Tuday – The common problem with doing a backup of my computers is dealing with opened files and opened programs always meant saving and closing the applications before doing a backup. Using the computer while the backup was taking place meant not having access to the computer. Installation of automated backup software always promised simple and headache FREE operations but this was never the case with all backup software I have used. The setup alone would be a nightware to configure. Did I want a file backup, mirror backup, backup right away, schedule a backup, uncompressed files, compressed files, encrypted files, incremental backup, overwrite old files and many more annoying decisions to make before you can start the backup process. If I forget to leave the computer on or the backup drive installed on my laptop, a message usually appears the next time I turn on the laptop that the scheduled backup was not completed and provide options but usually meant I would just reschedule. Sometimes missing 2 – 3 backup sessions.
Wassup! Today – Bluetooth headsets have become very popular in the last couple of years since many countries have instituted a law prohibiting drivers from using a cell phone that is held against your ear while driving. Most of these Bluetooth headsets have been the mono/single earpiece design. The lack of wireless stereo headsets was mainly due to the fact that a phone conversation is mono in nature plus the lack of software or Bluetooth stereo profile support. Now that the proper stereo profile A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution profile) and the remote control profile AVRCP (Audio/Video Remote Control Profile) has been created, we are able to take advantage of the stereo music that many cell phones support now wirelessly. To add more style and functionality to the wireless stereo music enjoyment and cell phone call access, Trispecs has combined the stereo Bluetooth headset support into a stylist pair of sunglasses.
Wassup! Today – The Siso Tablo from www.hantech.ca is certainly an interesting product to review. First off, I have been using a Wacom 4 X 6 drawing tablet for some time now. Great for drawing programs, navigating quickly on Internet Explorer and numerous other programs. The problem I have always had with the Wacom was I cannot easily use it with my laptop when the desk space is limited. The added space required for the Wacom drawing tablet is always an issue. Taking the tablet on the road is not really convenient also. Now the Siso Tablo solves the limited desk space issue nicely and is made for convenient use on the road as well.

Wassup! Today – Digital Video Camera:
In the last 3 years or so, we have started to see the introduction of HD digital video cameras and the lowering of prices of video cameras in general. $2000.00 USD was the normal price range for a basic digital video camera. Now we are starting to see a number of choices in the $500.00 – $1000.00 USD price range. This certainly will get more and more individuals into purchasing a digital video camera to capture those important family moments.
One of the common problems with video camera users is the ability to immediately view the movies conveniently. Old technology involved a VHS tape that allowed you to easily remove the tape from the camera and insert into your video cassette player. Now we are dealing with an internal hard drive or a removable memory card which is not supported by standard video players. This means connecting the video camera directly to your TV each time you would like to watch the video. For some, this is as simple as plugging the camera into the AV jacks on the front of the TV. Unfortunately, many will have to deal with the connections on the back of the older TV which can be a real pain to reach.
