iRig UA for Android versus iRig HD for iOS Video Comparison

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSS I remember building my first pedal board out of an old record player. The size was wide enough that I could hinge onto my Peavey Rage amplifier. I had a Wah/Volume, Reverb and Doubler pedals which I affixed to the board and plugged into the power strip. It was crude, but it worked really well. Today, all you need is a smartphone to not only get all those pedals, but a plethora of amps and microphones as well. Digital guitar modeling has majorly progressed in the last 5 years – especially with companies...


Cachefly: A Little About Geekazine’s CDN for Video, Podcasts

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSS It doesn’t matter if you are a podcaster, video content creator, app developer or gamer – you need a solid CDN to deliver images, audio and video across your program. The content needs to deliver fast and reliably so your customers don’t move to another website, show or game. When I lost my CDN in August, I did a lot of shopping for a new location. I had over 900 videos that needed a new home and a lot of work changing file names just to get back on track. I have looked...


Hulu Plus with No Ads AND Showtime?

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSS Whenever someone says “Hulu”, people turn and complain about the ads. They have some of the best new content from major networks like ABC, NBC and FOX. But will the enticement of ad-free content, EPIX movies and Showtime bring you over to the service? EPIX Moving from Netflix to Hulu Plus Keep in mind I am saying “Hulu Plus” here. If you use the free Hulu service, you might not get this content. Nonetheless, on August 30th it was announced that Netflix will be losing the movie content from EPIX on September 30th....

ASUS MG279q WQHD Gaming Display with AMD FreeSync

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSS Check out the latest in WQHD monitors with this ASUS MG279q 27 inch FreeSync gaming monitor. It’s part of their growing line of gaming gear, but could this also become a great part of your home entertainment gear? On my desktop I run 2 monitors – one in portrait mode for reading and the other with productivity software on it. However, just like when the tech industry introduced 16:9 monitors over 4:3, I could see a lot of 2-screen users switch back to a single screen simply because of the content you can...

Audio Technica 8004L vs. Sennheiser MD 46 Long Handled Interview Microphones

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSS This video was created with no audio changes. The idea is for you to hear the raw version of each microphone and make your own decision. A few months ago, I compared this Audio Technica vs the SM58 and AT2100 microphones for use in interviews. I got a comment on the YouTube video from CapWKidd asking “What about the Sennheiser MD 46 microphone?” I turned around and tweeted SennheiserUSA, who actually got back to me within 24 hours. They sent me the MD46 long handle microphone. These are two different types of microphones...

Switching out Computer Heat Sink with Cooler Master Hyper T2

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSS About a month after setting up this new computer, my processor fan started sounding like a single prop airplane. I couldn’t record any video without that noise getting in the way. I tried several ways to pad, but it just made better sense to get a more powerful heat sink. Which is why I bought the Cooler-Master Hyper T2. Why didn’t I go liquid cool? I really didn’t want to have that hassle in my computer at this time. Further, if I have to take my machine on travel, this way works a...

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSS If you haven’t heard, will be closing its doors on August 20,2015. I have used Blip to host video since 2009, so I have to find a new home for over 900 videos. In the meantime, I put together a little video on what’s going on and what you can expect in the next couple weeks. Will Geekazine become a part of MaxMakers? I have not made that decision yet. They ask for a 2 year commitment, which I get a little weary on. I have put in a request to meet...

The ZAGG Speaker Case is not only that, but also a backup battery that gives you up to 8 hours of charge. About the ZAGG Speaker Case The case itself is technically a bumper you put around the phone.

Olloclip 4-in-1 Lens Attachment, Case for iPhone 6, 6 Plus

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSS I have worked with lens adapters for phones and handheld cameras for a few years. Some work well while others fall short. Olloclip is one of those devices that work very well for your iPhone. With the iPhone 6 and 6 plus, they have recreated the clip not only for easy connection, but also for easy storage. The Olloclip is a 4-in-1 lens adapter for your main camera and front-facing camera. The design allows you to flip it around and use how you need it. There are two lenses – a Telephoto and...
