NZXT H2 Classic Computer Case – Logan’s Video Overview

NXZT H2 Classic Computer Case - Logan Video Cap
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’s Family Locator a Great Feature

imageVerizon 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.

Instant Communication – PTT made easy with TiKL

TIKL_icon 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.  

tikl_qrcodeA 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. 

If you’d like, you can also join the TiKL fan page on Facebook

What a great app I stumbled across today.  I’ve been getting office co-workers to install it all day!  Enjoy.

Samsung Announces New Eco-Friendly LED Monitors

samsung_led_new_50and30seriesLED 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!

Android Apps You Should get

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…

bezier_live_wallpaper_linkTo 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_linkUrban 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.
