Sony Handycam PJ710 Review

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | RSSI had the opportunity to play with the Sony Handycam PJ710 over the summer. I saw these Sony cameras at CES and was really excited to add this to my video arsenal. This is a camera that is also a video projector. Great for showing off those videos you just took of the kids, the parents or whatever you recorded. The camera is part of the PJ7xx series. PJ710 and PJ790. The main difference between the two is the PJ790 comes with 96 GB internal flash memory – perfect for a few hours of recording. I also have the Sony Handycam XR260 – a previous model with internal HD that records up to 24 hours in 1080p. Advantages of Sony Handycam PJ710 The best advantage was the stabilization system. The balanced optical SteadyShot is a device that will actually stabilize the video by moving...

5 Years of Geekazine.com – The Good, Bad and the Future

Do you remember what you were doing 5 years ago today? I do. I started this website. -Jeffrey Powers, Geekazine.com It was this day in 2007 where I hit the button and started Geekazine.com. The podcast was already running (as I started it a month prior). I launched the website and did the podcast for the day. I felt it was a great launch and an exciting time for me and Geekazine. Then I got laid off from my job. It was literally the day before launch that I was called into a room and told my services were no longer welcome. I was also sick during the launch and the audio was not going my way. I took the negative focus and put it in positive articles on Geekazine. Adding the Focus section and the video (pic 1*) which I talked about tech how-to. I also started...

Ecovacs Robotic Window Cleaner Scale Glass to Clean 0

Ecovacs Robotic Window Cleaner Scale Glass to Clean

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | RSSIf you own a building – especially one that has multiple floors – it can get hard and dangerous to clean windows. But not anymore as Ecovacs are here. Ecovacs is a Chinese company that produces cleaning products for multiple use. Now one that cleans the windows. Winbot is an interesting cleaner. It works on the same magnetic connection as some name badges you see have. The two halves separate, then adjoin back together on a window pane. One moves around and both of them clean the window in a pattern that will not leave streaks. You would have to be able to connect both parts on the window, so sealed glass on the 100th floor might not work. However, if you have a storefront, or a 2 story house, it can do the job without you getting on a ladder. It even works with...

Corning Puts Tough Glass on Smartphone, Tablet 0

Corning Puts Tough Glass on Smartphone, Tablet

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | RSSHollis James joins the TPN Live CES Coverage. Corning is the company that puts the glass on those devices. Corning puts their “Gorilla Glass” on these devices. That is what is used on Samsung, LG and other devices. From phone to TV – the Gorilla Glass will withstand above average wear and tear. Not only shatter-resistant, but also scratch resistant. They have a group of people in a room that try to break the glass. How fun a job is that? Since Corning is 50% owned by Samsung, it’s safe to say their surfaces are Corning.

Ramblings: Hard Drive Woes – July 3rd, 2010 0

Ramblings: Hard Drive Woes – July 3rd, 2010

It’s been a while since I did a Ramblings. Here we go… Last night I went to record some of July’s Day in Tech History episodes. The audio was lagging – when I stopped processing, it would sit and think. I was able to save the recording, but it took a good 5 minutes to catch up. I finally got it to work better by putting the cache files on another drive. Uh oh… This is the first time in 15 years of PC computing that I have had a hard drive even start to falter in a production machine. Not a good feeling. At least I have good backups. I was able to pull the data off the drives. It just took a while to do. I still have to run the Seagate software, but the bigger question is if the drives are still under warranty. Seagate drives...

When SPARC is Gone: Bill Allen – HP Road Show Converged Infrastructure

We all hate the word. It means extra hours and that one thing that hangs up the project until someone goes “Wait, this is how it works” and everything just makes sense. Migration We are coming up to a point where even old software needs to move forward. Legacy is not the way to go in this day and age. Staying on Legacy equipment may mean you are going to pay even more when you don’t have a choice. Bill Allen talks about why it is important to get off the old Legacy and get on a system that will bring a Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) back to the company. Bill mentions the dedicated migration centers of HP, and their single source support for Linux, Solaris, Windows and HP-UX. Most important, you will be upgrading to machines that will do the job in a fraction of time...
