Despite the advances in digital tech, writing on a screen with a stylus or stylus-type device doesn’t quite compare to a traditional pen. But we’re getting really close. However, some people still prefer to use a regular writing instrument, be it for the handling, creative experience, or good ole’ fashioned nostalgia.
Slowly yet surely, the standard USB cable may be a thing to collect in filled junk drawers or piles of unused accessories. Sure, it sounds kind of crazy now, but why use a basic cable for your needs when a multi-function cable can do so much more. Personally, I happen to like carrying less while still being able to do/have what I need.
To some people, a keyboard is just a keyboard. But they may be the same type who can pick any random mechanical pencil off of retail peg-hooks and feel completely satisfied. I don’t know how to do that, since even mechanical pencils are tools in my eyes. And any tools I use – knives for the kitchen, trimmers for the backyard, or keyboards for writing/gaming – are carefully chosen for the long-term.
Like a true Dudley Dursley, I have two bedrooms. Yeah, I’m that princess. But like a true corporate lunatic, I recently converted my second bedroom into a cute little home office for those days when I’m “sick” and can’t make it into the office. The newest fixture in my new space, a Canon Maxify MB5320, is an more »
The AAXA P450 micro projector is a fantastic piece of hardware for anyone who wants to experience big-screen viewing with pocket portability.
Last year, I had the opportunity to test out and review the Penclic B2 Bluetooth Mouse. It’s a fantastic mouse with a very innovative design, meant to provide greater comfort and reduction in strain. Despite the areas which it excels, the Penclic B2 is not without drawbacks. Namely, the use of the buttons and scroll wheel tends to be quite awkward.
It’s the dawn of a new era for the stock Android-running Nexus gadget line, as Google intends to target the mainstream, upper-tier tech market with the family’s fresh 6 and 9-inch members. The Nexus 6 smartphone and Nexus 9 tablet are slightly tougher sells than their predecessors, costing $650 and $400 respectively.
One of the great things about this mobile revolution is that there’s always something new and/or improved coming out. So long as it’s classified as either “now” or “soon”, whatever you get is going to be one of the best. Naturally, smartphones and tablets take the top slots, since those are the core products for accessories to revolve around. But everything gets an upgrade option eventually.
The Equil Smartpen 2 works like a standard ballpoint on regular paper. What makes the Equil Smartpen 2 advanced is the sensor to track and record strokes.
Most projectors are pretty boring to me. We commonly associate these hulking, ugly things with school classrooms, work meetings, or presentations in front of groups. The kind of projector I like is the one that pulls out of my pocket when I want to toss up some cartoons or a movie on a blank wall. That’s my kind of fun.
No matter how good the voice recognition or swipe-to-type software, nothing really beats a standard keyboard for writing notes or laying out ideas. There’s something about letting fingers hover, waiting to attack the keys with purpose, like a trapdoor spider snatching up unsuspecting prey. What? That’s not how the rest of you type? Give it a shot – it’s fun.
When it comes to me being mobile and productive, less is more. That’s why the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 smartphone (phablet) is my device of choice, compared to a desktop or laptop. I can have more power and information at my fingertips, all in the space that fills a pocket. I do as much as I can from the comfort of my hammock, impossible for a PC and awkward with a laptop.
