Rosewill SP 7260 Computer Speakers for Movies, Music, Gaming

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSSIf you are looking for a sub-$100 set of stereo speakers for gaming, movies, or music, the Rosewill SP-7260 speakers will fit the job. These 60 Watt speakers have a range of 60 Hz – 20 kHz to capture a full range of sound. I tested these speakers in multiple capacities – as the replacement speakers at the TV and in the studio for music and podcasting. My results were a decent 4 ohm speaker for your listening needs. One issue I found with the speaker was the “wood case”. Inside I saw press board, over an oak board they had in the graphic. While pressboard does also give a fuller sound over plastic casing, I was a little disappointing over this feature that Rosewill mentioned. Another issue was the 6 foot 4-pin cable used to patch speakers together. While it worked...

What is HPE Labs “The Machine” at HPE Discover

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSSIf someone was to ask you to draw a computer, you would probably draw an opaque box with a monitor, keyboard and mouse. In the last few years, the vision changed ever so slightly with some possibly drawing a laptop or tablet. But a computer is so much more and it’s starting to lose it’s physical body. Just like with the “Star Trek” theme we saw all that week at HPE Discover. I got to talk with Martina Trucco about what Hewlett Packard Enterprise Labs (HPE) saw as “The Machine”. They created an interactive sculpture where you could go inside and see the interactions from the items we use everyday (and might not even know it). From the cell phone in our pockets, to the towers that replicate and push out those signals, and finally, the destination of your communications – whether...

HP Pavilion x2 is a Laptop, Tablet, Kiosk and More

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSSHP calls it their most versatile detachable PC. It’s a laptop that easily converts to a tablet and even a table tent for kiosk options.

Pavilion x2 12 inch comes in 2 models – with an Intel ATOM x5 series processor and Intel Core M – thier 6th generation processor. The machine I have is the Intel core m3 at 1.51 GHz, 100 MHz Bus, 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB storage supplied by Samsung. Windows 10 64-bit home is on the machine and it can be configured for PC or tablet mode depending on what you...

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 put on this monitor. Specs – ASUS MG279q 4K Monitor with FreeSync First of all, let’s take a look at the specs of the ASUS MG279q.

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSS Connecting your computer to your TV has never been so easy. Remember the days where you couldn’t even get a simple headphone jack from your CRT TV? Connecting your DVR, Roku, PC and more to the TV is as straightforward as connecting to the HDMI port. Yet the TV is now so thin it sets on your wall and your computer is not even close to it.
