KEYBOARDING CONUNDRUM

 

In my experience, keyboards are probably the most overlooked piece of essential computing equipment.  For years I have been putting together computers and for years I have purchased keyboards on the cheap.  After all, a good video card is more important than a decent set of keys to bash, isn't it?

 

Wireless Computing's RF-220 Wireless Keyboard begs to differ.

Without the weight and the cost of them.

  

And there’s another, huge, side benefit to the iStraw as well. Here’s how it works.

Joby GorillaPod: Going Ape Over a Tripod

Read more: Joby GorillaPod: Going Ape Over a Tripod There's a pleasure that may be had from the simple act of placing a gadget on a table and watching someone's brain kick into gear as they realise what its purpose is.  The Joby “Original” Gorillapod garners the lion share of attention as I parade it past a few photography aficionados.  There are plenty of bragging rights to this gadget.

 

The Gorillapod is a camera tripod with a “twist”  - literally!  Lots of twists in fact.  Instead of straight barrel legs, each leg is composed of 9 articulated ball joints, each capable of bending ~45° and rotating 360° to provide unprecedented flexibility and support for taking the perfect photo.

 

Despite the "pod" suffix, the Gorillapod bears no relation to products from that "fruit company" based in Cupertino.  Even before I attach it to my camera, I am already thinking back to the numerous trips I have made and wishing I had had this in my gear pack.

Read more: OCZ Rally 2 and VBoost Flash DrivesToday, we will be taking a look at two different flash drives from OCZ.  The first one is the OCZ Rally 2. 

The OCZ Rally 2 is a general purpose flash drive used to store your personal files and folders. 

The other flash drive we will be taking a look at is the OCZ VBoost Flash drive. While this drive can also be used for personal files, this flash drive was meant to be used with Windows Vista's feature ReadyBoost. 

In this review, we will take a look at both of these drives and discuss their design, performance, and functionality.  For the VBoost drive, we will focus on how well it performs in Vista in conjunction with ReadyBoost.

Gosget MB-988SL Solar Bluetooth GPS Receiver Data Logger Announced

Industry NewsWritten by Martin Regtien on .

Read more: Gosget MB-988SL Solar Bluetooth GPS Receiver Data Logger AnnouncedAnother day, another GPS receiver manufacturer, rebrander, it seems.

Ever heard of the name Gosget?  Me neither. 

There is no excuse for ignorance so we looked up some details for you. 

 

The brand is being launched by SeeYou.com in Taiwan but their website doesn't seem to be operational yet.  They are launching three Bluetooth GPS receivers:
Gosget MB-588 Bluetooth GPS receiver
Gosget MB-688L Bluetooth GPS receiver + Data Logger
Gosget MB-988SL Solar Bluetooth GPS receiver + Data Logger.


A couple of the units look very much like some of the Qstarz receivers that we recently reviewed (Travel Recorder) and it also seems another reincarnation of the i-Blue range, like the 737 and 747.

You can find the details of the solar unit below.
