Satechi BT Cortana Button adds a new dimension to your computing experience

by Edwin - on August 2, 2015

Who would have thought that Bluetooth technology would last until today, where it is right now in the 4.0 iteration amongst the most current gadgets? Well, going wireless does seem to be the right direction for many a device, and until now, most of the time where we see Bluetooth technology applied would be to send music from a device to a speaker sans any kind of pesky wires that tend to get all tangled up in a mess, not to mention being a haven for dust bunnies to procreate. The Death Star Bluetooth Speaker is a pretty cute example, but with Windows 10 launched just last week, do expect Bluetooth technology to play a bigger role. Satechi themselves are up to the task with their recently announced BT Cortana Button. Just what is the Satechi BT Cortana Button all about? Read on after the jump to find out more.

MSI does the Windows 10 dance with new gaming notebooks

by Edwin - on August 2, 2015

MSI-GT72-Win10When it comes to notebooks, you can generally break that market down into two different niches – the first would be for the road warrior or businessman, who simply wants it to work without weighing too much. Sure, it will be able to crunch numbers and churn out spreadsheets, but chances are you would also find Minesweeper and Solitaire on it as the only games, too. The other would be high end models that are able to rival, or perhaps even surpass the processing and graphical firepower found on other desktops. This would be the fabled realm of gaming notebooks, and it is a market which MSI is familiar with. After all, they have come up with their fair share of gaming notebooks in the past, and it does not look as though they are going to stop anytime soon. In fact, with the recent release of Windows 10, MSI has also stepped forward to announce the availability of gaming notebooks with Windows 10, where among them include the ultra-powerful GT72 Dominator with G-Sync technology and the performance focused GE72 Apache and GE62 Apache.

Star Wars Death Star Cutting Board – the size ain’t too impressive

by Edwin - on August 1, 2015

death-star-cutting-boardDo you love to spend plenty of time in the kitchen, whipping up dishes that are not only nice to look at, but also delicious and smells so good? Surely there are many different ways to whip up a variety of dishes, and in order to do so, you would also need quite an arsenal of kitchen utensils and tools to get the job done. Among them would be the cutting board, of course, and we have seen some pretty interesting ones in the past like the Joseph Joseph cutting board that comes with a built-in knife sharpener, but surely it does not look as menacing as the $19.99 Death Star Cutting Board?

The Death Star Cutting Board might not be as large as the real deal in the movies, but this one simply oozes with style as it comes with a hygienic glass surface that is both odor and stain-resistant, being shy of 12″ diameter. While it is heat-resistant, it is not blaster-proof, which is to be expected. Just how heat-resistant is it? It can handle heat of up to 350° F, sports non-slip rubber feet and remember , do not throw it into the dishwasher!

R2-D2 Desk Vacuum Cleaner looks cute and works just fine

by Edwin - on July 31, 2015

r2-d2-desk-vacuumWhile some of us have our quaint, personal habits, such as not eating where we work, I am quite sure that many of us do not mind munching on some snacks while we hammer away at the keyboard in order to meet a particular document dateline. Pizza, donuts, and perhaps a pretzel is always more than welcome, although sometimes we would not mind having some cookies or biscuits, too. Of course, since we do not have the powers of Ant-Man to telepathically ask ants to clear up the mess, there is a recourse to ensure our desk does not have unwanted crumbs lying around. Star Wars fans will definitely squeal in delight with the £14.99 R2-D2 Desk Vacuum Cleaner, which looks super cute – and is functional, too.

Granted, this is not a new idea, as USB-powered desk vacuum cleaners have been around for close to a decade already, but this is yet another role that the little astromech droid that could excels in. Perfect for hoovering up salacious crumbs, it will be powered by USB instead of a crystal that powers a lightsaber, and there is no sweaty midget hiding inside. Unfortunately, there is no accompanying protocol droid to make up one of the silver screen’s more famous dynamic duos. The third leg of this R2-D2 Desk Vacuum Cleaner would play the role of the micro-vacuum cleaner, and when he is full of dust, just unscrew his domed head to clean it out.

Scosche reVOLT and reVOLT dual car chargers pack quite a punch

by Edwin - on July 31, 2015

scosches-usb-car-chargerThe modern day road warrior would have a fair number of devices that he or she totes around, and most of the time, we would have left the home with these devices fully charged. However, there are certain days where we are way too busy with our normal routine, using our smartphones, tablets, and even smartwatches more often than we normally do – and this would cause a massive drain on the batteries. Instead of fretting around, worried sick that your smartphone’s juice runs out before Waze can get you to that business appointment within the shortest time possible, why not ease all of those fears with a charger in your car? This is where Scosche steps in, with their Scosche reVOLT and reVOLT dual car chargers.

Speck CandyShell is one tough iPhone case

by Edwin - on July 30, 2015

speck-candyshellWhen it comes to cases for your smartphone, it can be quite a difficult decision to make. There are times when you realize that putting on a smartphone case would mean not respecting the kind of design work that had gone in to make your smartphone look as good as possible, but on the other hand, a protective case does what it is meant to do – to ensure that your device remains relatively unscathed from everyday brushes, accidental knocks and drops. In fact, this particular market can be said to be extremely lucrative, otherwise how else can one explain the massive number of different protective case models out there? Speck might have something for you to deck out your iPhone with which will be different from the other kinds in the market – the CandyShell Wrap.
