Folding Door Guard – means you can fly back home with the dignity of clothing

Folding Door Guard – means you can fly back home with the dignity of clothing

If you travel a lot, especially internationally, you probably already know that burglars in other countries are either more abundant, or more ingenious, so staying in a hotel, regardless of the number of locks on the door, can be risky business. Well, the Folding Door Guard aims to address this issue in a portable manner.

This little device extends out, grips on the floor at the bottom, and forks itself around the door knob to make sure that door doesn’t move. However, if someone is capable of moving, or worse yet, breaking the tube-steel gadget then hopefully the 120 decibel motion sensor alarm would deter them or at least make them reconsider.

HP 2133 to sell 2 million units?

Apparently HP thinks so, they’ve taken it upon themselves to contract out 2 million units to Wistron. In case you’ve already forgotten, the 2133 is the Eee-like notebook that HP is going to start selling later this year.

Fujitsu 500GB notebook HDD released

Fujitsu has finally done it, they’ve caught up with Hitachi in releasing a 500GB notebook HDD. It has the 2.5” form factor and uses a mere 1.8 watts of power.

The lower power requirements make it greener than Hitachi’s offering. Chances are Fujitsu’s drive will be a bit cheaper than the Hitachi drive when it drops by the end of May this year.

ThinkPad X300 by Lenovo reviewed by the man – Walt Mossberg

Overall Mr. Mossberg seems quite pleased with the X300 and more or less says that even for the steep price it may very well be worth it. Really, he only has a slight indifference with the battery life, but his only major complaint when compairing it to the MacBook Air is that he says the Mac OS is far better than Windows.

ClickFree One-Click Backup

ClickFree One-Click Backup

There is, as usual, a catch that is that it only works with Windows for now. However, on the upside, it really is a one-click backup, as in you don’t have to install any software or setup anything, you attach this device and it starts backing up files instantly.

HP UMPC Compaq 2133 could be on the horizon

HP UMPC Compaq 2133 could be on the horizon

Alas, one of the other major PC manufacturers is getting into the UMPC space, well not really, it might just be semantics, but I’d call this and ultra-portable, not a UMPC. It’s the Compaq 2133 and its being made to compete with the Asus Eee, although hopefully it won’t have the same superbly generic hardware inside.

Buffalo LinkStation Pro Duo review

So I met with Buffalo at CES, and then shortly after they were kind enough to send me their LinkStation Pro Duo for review. I must say I am impressed, it is quite squarely aimed at business users, but for home users, it has some fairly useful features as well.
