NZXT makes great computer cases. Logan loves cases that make things easy – like taking out front bay retainers, fans, hard drives and good wire management, in fact, without those things he will rarely look or talk about them. Today I saw this video was put up this morning and now I actually want to run out and buy this case today to upgrade from my current gigantic NZXT case.
To get the full details, watch the video and you can get the full details, but I’ll tell you what made this Classic H2 case from NZXT a must have by me:
8 hard drive bays (with easy access)
a case-top drive bay which allows you to pop a drive in and out. Amazing
the “wireless” case front fans
the magnetic fan cover
soundproofing foam integration
Keep reading to watch the video and see these great features close up!
Verizon has their ‘Family Locator’ package available for parents (and spouses) who want to keep tabs on their loved (and untrusted) ones easily through a web or smartphone interface. Today I was stumbling around the Verizon Wireless website, annd found the ‘Arrival and Departure Update” feature. Now, this is a little big brother, but…
It’s freaking awesome. Without “watching” and checking on your family, you can simply setup specific areas for specific dayparts for specific people. So, you can define your child’s school (down to a 1/4 mile area) for the house of 8:30 to 3:30 each weekday. Once your child arrives in that location, you can receive a confirmation of arrival each morning. Likewise, you’ll be notified when they leave that area each day. Any movement outside their scheduled location will also trigger an alert, allowing you to figure out what is going on quickly and easily.
Okay, some people just LOVE push to talk (PTT) – think back about 5 years when it was all the rage. Sometimes annoying, yes. Useful othertimes as well. But I never liked the “walkie talkie” button thingy. Made it seem too ‘low tech.’
Well, TiKL has released an app for Android that makes it cool, very ‘transponder’ like and actually is GREAT for when you are driving in the car. No need to call when you can just ring in.
It uses our primary phone # on your device as your “id,” simply listing all of your contacts and you choose them to add to your list. There is a do-not disturb mode, which the “Call info” button will allow you to obtain the recent caller information. Just hold down the button on the center of the screen, you’ll get a red glow, and talk away.
A confirmation tone sounds after you let go (or is an electronic “over” LOL). It’s a great app, glad to see it’s free and you can get it too! Just scan the QR code here to get it straight from the Android Market.
Samsung has been satisfying many customers with their favorite Touch of Color displays, but these new LED eco-friendly displays will be sure to provide many with an even sleeker display. Based on the release photographs, the new models feature a sexy metal stand without the full “disc base” that we were used to seeing on the TOC monitors.
Their specs are impressive with a 2ms response time, 16:9 aspect ratio and of course are full 1080P. A new feature called ‘Magic Return’ does something like move your desktop around to actively powered-on displays. Not sure how much that will wreck havoc on your life (or carefully arranged desktop), but hey, it’s a new feature!
Watch for the new 50 and 30 series LED displays soon at TigerDirect.com!
With the forthcoming release of the Droid X from Verizon on July 15th, people who love the Android operating system are getting more and more excited. For those who have been using android, or are recent converts, they love it. It’s so easy to use, Google integration makes life joyful, and I could go on and on…
To give your droid a new look, check out the live wallpaper called ‘Bezier’ as recommended by Ryan Whitwam over at Tested.com. It’s a great live wallpaper for those with Android 2.1 and higher, and unlike the resource intensive live backgrounds (like the awesome Mario one), this one reportedly does not drain the life from your phone. To check it out, use the QRcode on the left from your phone – like I need to tell you this.
Urban Dictionary has provided people with a great resource for many years – and it often gives you words you never knew about and sometimes they have very interesting definitions.
There is a great new app which harnesses the power of Urban Dictionary for the Android, and even provides a “Word Widget” that allows you to simply shake your phone for a new word anytime! Get it today from the QRcode on the right.
Well, those are the two recommendations I have for you today, but next time we’ll review a streaming music app and how it really works in combination with other phone services and applications IRL.
One of the first things you’ll notice about the Gateway M-6848 Refurbished Notebook PC is its elegant and polished chassis covered in a Garnet Red finish. It is simply beautiful and fresh to look at. The same could be said for its 15.4-inch diagonal widescreen WXGA display. The full-sized US keyboard and wide are simply a joy to use. Plus, the laptop is very easy to carry around, with weighing just 6 pounds.
With many new games boasting the most explosive, eye-opening graphics and astonishing special effects, there has never been a better time to be a PC gamer. What’s more, you don’t always need to have the most powerful graphics card in order to enjoy a high-quality gaming experience. Just take a look at the powerful and very affordable Diamond Radeon HD 4650 Video Card.
Running a small office is never easy. With all the different concerns and time constraints that face small business owners, it’s no wonder “replacing the printer” ends up last on the list. The Canon PIXMA MX700 is an All-In-One Office Printer: combining the tools you need to keep your business booming, and taking a significant amount of the hassle out of the equation at the same time.
