Note: The views and opinions expressed in this article are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect those of Poc Network. It’s time to finally share some of the experiences I have had switching a line over to T-Mobile over the last year. An experience that has been had since around May of last year. What is quickly becoming one of the most noticeable networks due to great marketing and of course the recent acquirement of the 600mhz spectrum, also doesn’t seem to make any attempts to hide its dark side. They do have some really attractive pricing…

It feels like it was only two years ago when we were bragging about SanDisk announcing a 200GB microSD card. Mostly because it was two years ago when this happened. Since then however, we have come far enough to stick our tongues at 200-256GB as SSD and other formats of flash media move far beyond this capacity. Now, microSD shares the same glory as SanDisk has moved to offering 400GB microSDXC that can be purchased this very moment. So just in case that smartphone that offers 64-128GB of space isn’t enough for you, and you need something to brag to…

It’s that time again to rush out and grab your free games if you are an Xbox Live Gold subscriber. This month’s games are live and ready for the taking, and there are a few titles to brag about. First up and probably what will be the most widely accessed (by those who haven’t already bought it), is Forza Motorsport 5, which is clearly is a timed release to get everyone amped up and prepared for the upcoming Forza Motorsport 7 on the Xbox One X releasing in November. Forza proves time and time again to be a highly addicting…

Yet another US company has been obtained by an overseas company yesterday, as Lexar (Milpitas, CA) was acquired by Longsys (China). Lexar was sold by Micron (Boise, Idaho) for an unknown amount, after recently announcing their plan to let go of the brand and focus on higher profit opportunities. Longsys is a large NAND flash storage manufacturer based in China, looking to grow their presence in the US using Lexar’s brand, due to the company’s well recognized name and reputation in the flash-based memory industry. So you can expect to see Lexar’s lineup grow in the future to introduce new…

Taking half a break (there’s a pun here) from all of the wireless in-ear headphones we have been covering, today we get to talk about a single Bluetooth earbud for taking calls with, the ZNT N1 Mini Bluetooth earbud. It’s a single bud like any other Bluetooth earpiece for your phone (hence, taking “half” a break from headphones), but this one tries to stand out among the rest. What allows this one to stand out more than anything, is both size and user friendliness. This earbud is barely larger than an American penny. It fits nicely within your ear and…

Amazon has finally added the ability to Alexa, that allows it to stream music all throughout your house at once (assuming of course that you have an Alexa-equipped device in each room). Before, you would only be able to get the current Alexa device (ie, Echo) to play the music you want to hear. Meanwhile, speakers from companies like Sonos and Bose allow you to stream to multiple rooms at the same time. In face, many companies have been jumping on this bandwagon over the last few years. Finally, Amazon has jumped into the crowd as well with their latest…

No surprise here, as Microsoft has set the ball in motion to end production and sales of the original Xbox One consoles. Originally released nearly four years ago (November 2013), the original console will be quickly living in the shadow of the Xbox One X when it arrives later this year, and the Xbox One S already surpasses its abilities as is. So there is no point in keeping the original around when consumers can get the One S for less and get more from it. November of this year will mark the launch of the new Xbox One X,…

We had to take a moment to reflect back on a hard drive dock and duplicator/cloner we tested out last year–the EZ-Dock 3 by Kingwin. A simple to use device that works both via USB and can also duplicate on its own, without any connectivity to a PC. It came back into the spotlight this week when we did a number of hard drive swaps, duplications, tests, formats, and more. Things have been a little crazy around here as of late. In the process of all of this, we broke out some of the devices (docks) we have tested both…

Now, in our last story, we just got through with bragging about an 8TB hard drive from Seagate, and how it works out to be an excellent backup solution. However, Western Digital (WD) has announced the release of a 20TB external solution for desktop computers, that more than doubles that of the Seagate. Of course you have to consider the fact that most consumers either wouldn’t be able to afford something like this or simply just wouldn’t have enough data to put on it. However, it doesn’t change the fact that 20TB of capacity is pretty cool, and a lot…

Whoa doggy, do we have something fun to look at today! Well, technically we have been looking at it for a week now, but today is where we get to share with you our impression of a hard drive that carries a very generous amount of space. Today we are talking about Seagate’s Expansion 8TB (External) USB 3.0 Hard Drive (HDD). The average consumer has been favoring 3-4TB drives for external backup scenarios for quite some time now, based on average sales around the globe. However, as internal drives begin to grow in capacity by default in newer desktops and laptops,…
