Choetech 5 Port USB Surge Protector, Griffin Reversible Lightning Cable

Both are great products to have for your USB or iOS needs.

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSS September 9th, 2014. That is the date of the upcoming iPhone event. The quintessential reset to the world of smartphone technology. But what are we going to see? Will a watch be part of it? “I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.” That came from the man...

Day 1 of NAB 2014 – Cases, Lights and Streaming Boxes

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSS Day 1 of the NAB show expo was informative and eye-opening. As a video podcaster, I checked out a lot of great items and new ways to create content. My first travels went to the North hall which saw a lot of broadcast specific items. These were hardware and software solutions which would cost broadcasters $10,ooo or more. While these are not things a normal podcaster would invest in, I still got to understand how things like closed captioning, satellite feeds, multi-studio broadcasting, and more worked. Central hall brought products I could sink...

Absolute Lo-Jack Challenge 2

Absolute LoJack Challenge & My Stolen iPhone Story

NOTE: This is a post brought to you by Absolute LoJack. The Contest part is over. All opinions on software are those of Geekazine. Last week I announced a contest and talked about going #DigitallyDark for the Absolute LoJack Challenge. I have actually had this happen to me, which is a far better story than any “recreation” I could make. That is when I started thinking about better protecting my devices, especially since  I need them to do my job. Remember: A Laptop is stolen every 50 seconds. That laptop could have your vacation or kids photos, tax or other business documents, or...

Hey! A New iPad Air! Apple Event Brings Mavericks, Mac Pro

Subscribe: iTunes | Android | RSS I got my 5th pair of Google Glass last week, but they didn’t come from San Francisco. I talk about it all on TWIGG as Luke shows off the Texas state fair. Got a Fitbug Orb in the mail, so I’ll be testing out my health for the next couple weeks. Crowdfund has taken a lot of free time – iPad365 has been on hiatus until now (because I probably should talk about the new iPad, right?) I’ll be speaking next week on Google Glass, so the show may be a day late. Hotline –...
