TechnologyTell

I was born on the heels of Apple's Think Different campaign in the heart of Jersey. Since then my entire life has revolved around technology. I sought out every single gadget and gizmo I could get my hands on. Past experiences/hobbies have included owning and operating a mobile DJ company, being a swim coach, and of course the computer fix-it guy for my friends and family ... and their friends. Additionally, I have spent time with: a top Japanese electronics company on a product development team, at a SoHo, based advertising firm, a tech magazine, and marketing male targeted personal care brands -- amongst other things here and there. While I never envisioned being a writer, that is what you call this, right? I do love innovation, technology, and toys; this is just the best way to explore the great frontier. Oh, and if you can believe it, Doug and I aren't even related.

Simple, CHEAP, wireless home audio streaming

Would you believe me if I told you that for $70 you can get all the music on your computer to stream to your stereo in less than 5 minutes? Before the Orb came along I wouldn’t have believe it: $70 seems way to cheap given that Sonos charges a few hundred for this functionality more »

Gadgetell Review: The Seagate Showcase DVR Expander

seagate showcase dvr expander hard drive

I am not sure about you but I am regularly running out of space on my living room DVR (from Time Warner Cable) and am forced to delete movies and/or TV shows that I haven’t have time to watch. I could opt to record in SD instead of HD (which requires significantly less space), but that is just too big of a sacrifice. With the Seagate Extender these problems dissolve away.

Gadgetell Review: Going Gaga over the Saga

Samsung SagaLadies and gentleman allow me to introduce you to what I believe to be the most efficient and effective smart phone for both Verizon and the WinMo community. A veritable hybrid of “touch” and well…touch. So what do I mean? The Samsung Saga is like getting three presents in one. You have the ever so popular touch screen element, the stylish and comfortable QWERTY keyboard, not to mention the backing of multiple programs for your Windows Mobile phone.

Love at first touch

It seems Samsung is really listening to WinMo users or maybe it is only my prayers that have been answered. I was obsessing over the release of the Samsung Omnia for the longest time; in fact, I am willing to bet that I may be the first person to get their hands on it. At first it was love at first “touch” now it’s like a relationship on its way out the door; the thought of touching and holding my Omnia gives me a headache. I wanted a two-way commitment from my phone. I wanted to touch and also feel. I am, of course, referring to the Saga’s QWERTY keyboard. Like a breath of fresh air, it swept me off my fingers and gave me that “push my buttons” feel that I didn’t realize I missed so much.
