I made a bunch of videos for the so close to perfection 10" Intel Atom Baytrail Windows Tablet, the Acer Aspire Switch 10. Check it out over at my YouTube channel!

After seeing an offer I couldn't refuse on the UP! Mini 3D Printer I pulled the trigger and got myself a little Father's Day present. And immediately the first day after I got it I went through an interesting experience.

And I can only imagine the other things I'd do with this!

I was surprised to find a selection of Mattel Boom Co guns in my local Toys R Us, and since I knew that they were pretty much challenging Dart Gun King, NERF for gun supremacy I knew I just had to get some guns to try it out. Here's a quick review and more importantly a quick comparison between Boom Co And Nerf!

While I was looking for information regarding the Action Camera AS100 a few months back, an interesting piece of accessory caught my attention on the web. It was for a Hard Lens Protector (AKA-HLP1) basically all it does is to cover up the lens of the AS100, while this might seem like an unnecessary piece of hardware considering the AS100 already comes with a protective case, there's a unique situation where you might want to get this. Check out the review.

The very cool Xiao Mi 10400 Powerbank actually has quite an interesting undocumented feature, I say it's undocumented because I don't see it mentioned anywhere in the manual. But my friend told me about it, so I decided to run some tests.

The Xiao Mi 10400 Power Bank is a kind of gadget myth, it's said to be cheap yet well built, and performs EXCEPTIONALLY well in contradiction to it's price tag. When Xiao Mi finally starting having a distribution presence in Malaysia I decided to pick one up and see if it is truly worthy of all the praise the Internet has given it.

I'm refering to the Asus Vivotab Note 8 of course. What makes it the ULTIMATE meeting Windows Tablet?

  • Small portable 8" Form Factor
  • Intel Atom Baytrail for long battery life and great relative performance
  • Wacom Digitizer Technology!!!

It's amazing how many people trip up on that ONE LAST damn item! Don't they know that if you don't keep the pen IN the device then no one will use it because everyone will be afraid of losing the expensive pen and thus take it with them sparingly (glares at Microsoft for Surface Pro digitizer mount solution)

So now we have here what could be the BEST Meeting Windows Tablet, and yet... as usual... the ball is dropped somewhere find out where in the review.

Due to size or cost constraints, there're quite a few 8" Windows Tablets which don't posses a video out port, the only video out solution then is to either use a USB to video dongle, or to use Miracast to transmit to a receiver, here's what happened when I tried to test these two methods out.

First I try out a USB 3.0 to HDMI Dongle.

Then I try out using Miracast.

And here's what happened when I tried to use the USB 3.0 to HDMI Dongle on the Dell Venue Pro which didn't seem to be able to supply enough power!

I was always a little bit fascinated with 'action cameras' like the GoPro, not because I envision dreams of strapping a camera to myself while doing extreme sports. But rather the fact that it's a small yet pretty high quality camera. And I finally picked one up myself... but NOT a GoPro, rather a Sony Action Camera AS100... yeah.. another Sony... Check out the review followed by some sample videos!

I didn't really believed much in ergonomic keyboards when I first saw them with their weird curves and slopes. Then when I finally bought my first ergonomic keyboard and watched my typing rate plummet I was ready to write them off... until I got better. Better being I got better at typing, while I could type fast previously thanks to a ridiculous amount of time spent in The Typing Of The Dead when I was young I still weren't very good in recognizing which fingers should hit which keys. The slope and space of an ergonomic keyboard forced me to learn to position my fingers properly and thus I was a better typist. And also my wrist felt less stressed after a whole day of typing, it was amazing. So now I'm no longer skeptical of ergonomic keyboards, and I embrace them fully.

And here's my latest keyboard : The Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Desktop.
