CEDIA 2007 – Terra Speakers CA Series

The CA series, much like their AC counterparts, are meant to stand up to all the elements. The only difference is that this time, the speaker company from Maine made them flush mountable.

There are 8 models in this line, ranging from 5.25” all the way up to 8 inches. There are dedicated woofers, speakers with dual voice coils to cover the highs, and Mid/Bass speakers.

Insect Vacuum – It sucks big time…literally

Insect Vacuum – It sucks big time…literally

I always thought bugs and insect zapper was a crazy idea, and as of today that opinion of mine is off the table. Introducing the “insect vacuum”, a small gun-like mini vacuum that sucks up insects. The catch is you have to be within the range of its sucking power, which is around one to two inches.

SlashGear Review: Helio Fin

SlashGear Review: Helio Fin

So this morning I received in my hot little hands a Helio Fin. Its been well covered on SlashGear, and even more so in our forums. If you want the full list of details you can read the full information here.

First, there is the 3MP camera that is built in, then there is the thin and sexy clamshell form factor; I have borrowed a pink RAZR for comparison. Other than that there's Helio’s Ultimate Messaging Suite and Ultimate Inbox. The new features on the software side aren't small in comparison either. First there is Helio On Top or H.O.T., then there is HelioUP making it ever easier to geo-tag and instantly upload photos and videos taken with the Helio Fin. Last but not least there is Garmin Mobile, their new turn-by-turn GPS navigation software.

Nokia battery recall isn’t actually a recall, or is it?

Remember that story that we ran yesterday on the huge Nokia battery recall? Nokia has made an official statement regarding the story. The recall is for real, but they wanted to clarify one minor detail.

Apparently this is a voluntary recall, not your regular run-of-the-mill recall. I guess I need to read more of the fine print because to me, if some thing is bad and they ask you to return it for a replacement, that's a recall. Here is what the Nokia spokesperson had to say about the matter. "The difference is that a recall is something a company has to do. We did not. We simply felt that in this case, it was the right thing to do.”
