    Review: ECBC Hercules Travel Laptop Backpack – TSA Fast Pass Approved

    I’m a nut for good bags. Durable materials combined with room for accessories is a recipe for success. Package that in a good look aesthetic and you’ve got me hook line and sinker. ECBC is a company that I wasn’t familiar with before this review, but now I’m looking forward to trying out more of their gear. The Hercules is their premier travel backpack, so let’s dig in and take a look!

    Review: The Kingston MobileLite Wireless Card Reader – Stream SD Cards and Flash Drives Over WiFi

    It’s silly how much I like this thing. During CTIA, my blogger friend forgot his camera cable and his memory card reader. The folks at Kingston hooked us up with a MobileLite and totally saved his butt. This is one of the handiest little gadgets I’ve had the benefit of playing with. Utilizing WiFi to connect up to three devices to the same pool of SD card and USB flash drive storage. Let’s check it out!

     
  • Juan at CTIA 2013: Hands On With Kingston’s MobileLite Wireless Card Reader

    Juan at CTIA 2013: Hands On With Kingston’s MobileLite Wireless Card Reader

    It’s funny how these trade shows work. A blogger pal of mine forgot to pack not only his memory card reader, but also the cable for his camera. Poor guy was on deadline yesterday to cover events on the show floor with no way to transfer images off his camera. And then we happened upon Kingston’s booth. This MobileLite Reader is a bit bigger than most phones and connects to PC’s, iOS, and Android devices over WiFi. Pop in an SD card, or connect a USB flash drive, and you can share the contents of that card or drive with multiple devices up to a hundred feet. The 1600 mAh battery can power the device for about 6 hours of actual use, and in a pinch you can leach off of the MobileLite to recharge your phone. Trying it out on the show floor, even with a bunch of other […]

I recently had the pleasure of spending a little time with their Boa Courier 13 Graphite, which is a messenger style bag designed to hold a 13″ laptop and some accessories. Let’s see what Booq has to offer for the fashionable geek on the go!

     
  • Windows 8 Quick Tip 02: Disable That Annoying App Switching Gesture!

    Windows 8 Quick Tip 02: Disable That Annoying App Switching Gesture!

    I really like Windows 8, but I HATE the stupid trackpad gesture which automatically throws you into another app whenever you slide your finger in from the left hand side. My buddy Jeb hates it too, and asked me how to solve it. Thankfully, it only takes one quick trip to your settings to get rid of, so let’s turn that junk off!
