Logitech ClearChat headsets – Comfort and quality for the gamer

Logitech ClearChat headsets – Comfort and quality for the gamer

A little while back I finally caved and installed Ventrilo so I could talk with my fellow guild mates in World of Warcraft, and it's the best thing I ever did. Our runs are quicker and everyone is more efficient, except when we group with someone not using it, then they just feel left out. I do have one complaint about it, I can't stand to wear my headset for more than a couple of hours. I've tried a couple of different ones, but they all start to hurt my ears after a little while of gaming.

RedOne to ship their first 25 cameras this Friday

I love shooting video just as much as the next guy, but I don't exactly keep up with the latest high-end equipment since I'm an amateur at best. However, those of you seeking the best possible cameras you can get your hands on might do well to take a look at RedOne.

Home Network Hard Drives – Iomega’s new cost-efficiant NAS solution

Home Network Hard Drives – Iomega’s new cost-efficiant NAS solution

One of the best ways to keep all of your data in one place is by using a NAS. If you're not familiar with the acronym, it stands for Network Attached Storage and it's basically a network device for the sole purpose of storing files. They come in all shapes, sizes and prices. Iomega has just announced a new line of affordable NAS drives.

I personally just have an old Dell PC running a copy of FreeNAS to keep all of my files, I already had the hardware, and the software was free. Unfortunately it's a full tower, so it takes up a lot of room and uses more power than is really necessary. Iomega's new Home Network Hard Drives take up about as much space as a regular external drive, and will certainly use less power than a desktop.

BlackBerry Pearl 2 a.k.a. the 8120 Gets WiFi And More

The new BlackBerry, whose initial carrier is still up in the air, had been blessed with several new features. There is some new software as well as some new hardware, including WiFi.

Starting with the software, there is the version 4.3 OS installed. There are also some additions or fixes to SureType, email, and the nifty voice control stuff.

Griffin Amplifi Keeps It Simple, Yet Performs

Griffin Amplifi Keeps It Simple, Yet Performs

WYSIWYG is pretty much spot on for this iPod speaker. There is a dock on top, a knob/button on the front and a very basic IR remote.

The remote keeps functionality simple with pause/play, skip, volume, and power. Basically to get started all you do is plug in the speaker/dock, dock your iPod or connect another audio source via the auxiliary input, push the knob on the front to turn it on, and then turn the knob to crank it up.

HTC announce European TyTN II smartphone launch

HTC announce European TyTN II smartphone launch

My my, has it really been over twelve months since HTC's original TyTN launched?  They tell us it's so, and thus spring (and by spring I mean confirm what everyone has pretty much known for a while now) the introduction of the cleverly-named TyTN II on the European market.  High on the handset's list of curiosities is the slide'n'tilt 2.8-inch QVGA touchscreen display which not only clicks up to reveal a keyboard but is adjustable for angle should you want to pretend that the WM6 TyTN II is a teeny-tiny laptop.

 

WirelessGround USB Sync and Charge Cradle for iPhone

WirelessGround USB Sync and Charge Cradle for iPhone

WirelessGround has gone and made a device that actually causes the purchaser to lose functionality compared to what’s included. So what a third party has released and iPhone charging/syncing dock, who cares when you lose functionality.

What do you lose? You lose the audio out and the speaker grill, and you lose $23. I suppose there is one upside; WirelessGround’s unit does look a far shot better.
