Belkin has managed to find themselves in the middle of a public relations fiasco as they are being accused of hiring people to write fake ratings and reviews of their products on many online shopping websites. This comes shortly after posting on Amazon’s Mechanical Turk site, which offers a thing called “artificial intelligence.”
Oh, the world of wireless HDTV just keeps slipping beyond our grasp! And though we know it will come eventually, it's frustrating, to say the least, that the technology keeps being put off.
Belkin have unfurled a new range of ETL-Verified CAT6a cabling, boasting up to 10-gigabit transfer speeds. Intended for data centers and structured cabling systems, the new cables and hardware are rated for 10Gbps transmission on up to 100m runs, and have gold-plated connectors with molded, snagless guards.
Belkin has come out with a few new laptop sleeves to protect your portable and they are actually pretty nice to look at. Dare I say it: fashionable? One in neoprene, the other quilted, you have plenty of options for storing your laptop on the go.
There have been several styles of armbands, but this is the first one I've come across for the iPod Touch or the iPhone. The Belkin strap will keep it in place while out for your morning jog, or even a bit of fun on your Wii Fit.
Many studies have popped up and said that for men, the heat from sitting your laptop directly on your lap could end up causing infertility. Which means if you like lounging on the couch with your laptop, it might be time to consider getting a stand for it.
This new model from Belkin is wide enough to even hold the larger 17” laptops. It also features an adjustable height, to get your laptop at a comfortable angle for you.
This isn't out just yet and they don't say when it will be, but it is listed as coming soon. Once it is released it will be sold for $39.99.
Belkin is about to put a 200Mb/s powerline Ethernet adaptor in the market. The Powerline AV+ uses an integrated hub to share the connection between the three devices plugged in. These three ports however are not gigabit ports, they are 10/100 Mb/s Ethernet ports.
Wireless streamers capable of handling high-definition video aren’t new, exactly, but they’re often proprietary systems intended by a manufacturer solely for their own displays. Belkin are bucking the trend, therefore, with their upcoming FlyWire wireless HD interface. Capable of transmitting full 1080p/24, it replaces an HDMI cable while still allowing HDCP devices to play properly.
Ladies and gentleman, we have finally arrived. A manufacturer finally took notice of the increasing number of devices that charge via USB and has been kind enough to finally start integrating that technology into surge protectors/power strips.
