Samsung Galaxy Tab on Sprint Network – 4G World

Podcast: Play in new window | Download (Duration: 4:07 — 22.0MB) We walked upstairs to the Sprint booth where we ran into Meleah.

The tablet has front and back facing cameras and comes in 16 and 32 GB models. The Galaxy Tab only does WiFi and 3G, but with the Sprint Overdrive, you can get access wherever there is service. The Overdrive serves as a mobile 4G hotspot for your tablet, laptop...

Chris Heuer Talks Social Media Club, Jeff Gets Head-shot – @blogWorld 2010

Podcast: Play in new window | Download (Duration: 5:29 — 85.9MB) I have been a member of the Madison Social Media Club since it’s inception. It’s interesting to see what types of people go to the meetings, for they are not geeks. This is topic I bring to the table with Chris Heuer (@chrisheuer) – Founder of Social Media Club. We talk about how SMC was founded and who would benefit from the club. I then partake in the free Head-shot. I have a little fun with the photographer.

Rum Runner Bar, Pinball Hall of Fame, Rain in Vegas – After @BlogWorld

It’s officially Sunday Funday, and I was not going to sit up in my room watching twitter go wild with quotes like Thanks @blogworld. Getting ready to board the plane. Goodbye, Vegas. Before I left, I found about a place where I can watch the Packer game in Vegas. Rum Runner is a small bar south of the strip on Tropicana that hosts Packer fans. I decided to go there to start. I didn’t know I was so close to the Pinball Hall of Fame or Liberache Museum.  RAWK! Rum Runner – Packer and Badger Bar. I started at Rum...

While the West coast still has a great deal of Celebloggers, you will soon see that since you can create content from anywhere around the world, not all of those celebloggers and...

Kodak Playtouch: Kodak Zi8, Zi10 Video Cameras Side by Side

Podcast: Play in new window | Download (Duration: 8:31 — 72.9MB) I have been excited of the Kodak line since it came out 2009. The Zi8 was a camera I could get behind simply because it had all the functionality of a handheld, but also had the ability to connect an external audio source. The only commercial handheld that had that functionality at the time was the Sanyo Xacti HD2000, but the price tag was $600 to Kodak’s $179. Kodak has decided to upgrade the line with the next version in their series – the Zi10, or Kodak Playtouch. The biggest feature...

Why I Choose Roku, Boxee (Application) Over Apple TV, Google TV

330 days from now, TV as we know it will have changed. I’ve been saying that for a long time, but on Sept. 1st 2010, I decided to put it on the countdown. Why? Because Apple and Google came out with their set top boxes (Apple, finally taking it seriously). When companies like Apple and Google get into this game, you know the wind is about to change. The Comparison GigaOM has a nice write-up comparing the applications on the boxes. Each one has their own advantages and disadvantages. For example, if you want the iTunes store, you will have...

Kids Walker Exoskeleton – Your 5 Year Old Wants Your Lunch Money

Remember the exoskeleton suit in Avatar that Col. Miles Quaritch got into or the suit that Obadiah Stane used in Iron Man? Thought to yourself – I want one? Well, maybe you can get that for not only you, but also your kids. The Kids Walker Exoskeleton suit is a big mechanical robot that you control. Sit down in the chair and navigate through the foot pedals and hand joysticks. And yes – this model is meant for Kids. The company – Sakakibara – not only makes exoskeletons, but also food mixing machines. Pretty interesting combination. The other exoskeleton looks like...
