Motrr Galileo Robotic Gimbal with GoPro Mount Review

Podcast: Play in new window | Download (Duration: 7:29 — 346.8MB) When I create content – especially as a one person crew – I’m always looking for ways to make my cameras do more. When I saw the Motrr Galelieo last year I thought this would be a great way to do that. But not living in an iPhone world, it wasn’t a device I could use. Now, Motrr has come out with the GoPro mount to the Galelio. This compliments my video as I can now put the GoPro on a table or up on a tripod to pan...

HP Stream 11, Stream 360 Cloud Laptop for Under $200

Podcast: Play in new window | Download (Duration: 2:21 — 106.7MB) Cloud based laptops seem to be a great hybrid between tablet and computer. HP has come out with a great sub-$200 laptop in the HP Stream 11 – an 11 or 13 inch laptop running Windows software and internal hard drive of only 32 GB. However, with the free 1 TB OneDrive and Office365 (for 1 year), you can run what you need and get things done. HP Stream 11 x360 I got to talk with Bianamarie Carniel about the Stream 11 line of cloud-based computers. The first one...

Gallery Hotel, Barcelona Spain – Hotel Walkthrough

Podcast: Play in new window | Download (Duration: 20:13 — 928.0MB) It was my first time in Barcelona and I cannot express how memorized I was with the experience. The capitol of Catalonia, this urban area is a mixture of old Roman buildings, designs by Antoni Gaudi and some pretty impressive graffiti. But my focus is on a hotel in the heart of Barcelona – the Gallery Hotel. Going in December means an average high of 55-60 degrees (12-14 Celsius) but a lot of rain. In the week I was there it was only sunny 2 of the days. Coming from...

How HP Helped “Share a Coke”

Podcast: Play in new window | Download (Duration: 7:05 — 327.7MB) This year, Coca-Cola had a very popular campaign in “Share a Coke”. So who did they get to help print all the names on the sides of the bottles? HP had that honor. I talked with Doris Brown-McNally from HP’s Graphics Solutions Business about the campaign at HP Discover, the new artwork campaign starting and what that could lead to for businesses. The Target of “Share a Coke” Coke did a survey and found the “Tweeners” (between 8-18 years of age) did not know if they have tried a...

HP Elitebook Folio 1020 with Core M Fanless Ultrabook

Podcast: Play in new window | Download (Duration: 4:57 — 286.0MB) I have and use an Elitebook. Its a great travel machine to work and even create video and more. Yesterday, HP announced the newest version of Elitebook in the Folio 1020. Using the new Intel Core M processor, this laptop is the thinnest because it is fanless. We joked on the video – as thin as a cookie. There are two versions of the Elitebook Folio 1020 with the additional Folio 1020 Special Edition. The Core M-5Y51 or Core M-5Y71 with max turbo can take the processor up to...

Podcast: Play in new window | Download (Duration: 5:33 — 323.2MB) While at HP Discover Barcelona, I got to talk with Dave Gibson and Cliff Wilke – both Chief Technologists at HP. They are spearheading the next wave in Enterprise with Wearable Technology in what they call Digital Context Aware (DCA). DCA is the ability to work cross-platform on all wearable devices with an API to attach to their program so they can send information on the go.

Amazon Fire TV Stick vs. Fire TV: A Two TV Solution Under $200

Podcast: Play in new window | Download (Duration: 8:17 — 375.8MB) Earlier this year Amazon announced the FireTV – a competitor to the Roku and Apple TV. Doubling the specs of both devices, this became my goto choice for over the top television. Now, Amazon has come out with their lower cost version in the Fire TV Stick – mostly to compete with Chromecast and Roku Stick. This $40 device plugs right into your HDMI port in the TV, with a combined power USB cable which – depending on the TV you own – can be powered right through the...

Motorola Moto-X 2nd Generation with Bamboo Back

Podcast: Play in new window | Download (Duration: 6:18 — 289.3MB) Most of my phones that I’ve owned made mostly of plastic – From the Nokia 910 to the Razr, iPhone and even the Nexus 5 I currently own. If I ever wanted another texture, I would buy the case. But a phone with a wood back – Better yet, a Bamboo back? What a change in experience THAT is… I am taking a look at the 2nd Generation Moto X in Bamboo, which is now available on the Verizon network. This is one of three backing plates for the...

Taking the Amtrak Train: Walkthrough of the Roomette Sleeper Car

Podcast: Play in new window | Download (Duration: 7:47 — 348.6MB) Jennifer and I took a vacation to New York City. Instead of flying out, we did something a little more unorthodox in this day and age – took the train. From Chicago to New York City, we clacked around the Midwest and East coast with the Amtrak Cardinal line, coming home via the Amtrak Lakeshore. An amazing experience that not only let us see the sights but also appreciated the travel. Walkthrough of the Amtrak Roomette Sleeper Car There are three ways to travel via the train – in...

Podcast: Play in new window | Download (Duration: 7:36 — 344.3MB) It’s been an awesome time here in Vegas – I’ve been covering a conference and during the down time I’ve been playing with this – the GoPro HERO4 Black edition. This is the newest GoPro camera for live action recording. You might have seen skydivers, skateboarders, custom car owners, and other groups create some awesome video and this little device is ususally taking the video. As you can see, its a little larger than a box of Tictacs – with the waterproof case you could easily fit it in...

Podcast Microphones: Audio-Technica ATR2100 vs. IK Multimedia iRig mic HD

Podcast: Play in new window | Download (439.5MB) We have another podcast microphone showdown as I look at two USB podcast mics that you can use for recording audio. Audio-Technica’s popular ATR2100 USB/XLR hybrid microphone and IK Multimedia’s iRig Mic HD USB/iPad microphone. I have pitted the 2100 against the 2500 but now we’re looking at podcast microphone vs. podcast microphone. You can use these microphones with all iOS, Mac and PC software. These microphones will not work on an Android phone without 3rd party adapters. IK Multimedia iRig Mic HD This is a Condenser microphone only in USB format. The micro...
