“In a world, where enterprise and consumer technology seems to merge more more every day,” you now find yourself faced with more options than ever before when it comes to the tech that surrounds us. Now, if only I could express the deep movie guy voice in my opening text any further, you’d feel the true dramatic build up that the product we are about to discuss truly deserves. Sadly, you cannot, therefore I will continue with words and try my best to express what we have learned from testing Synology’s latest AC router, the RT2600ac. You could imagine that a…

Smartwatches are becoming a big thing this year as companies all around the world push to deliver their own concept of what a smartwatch should be. One of these is FMTwo Game Inc, who feels that the gaming community lacks a watch themed specially for them. With that in mind, they have been working to deliver Gameband. Gameband is a smartwatch for gamers that aims to do more than just track your steps. It also features some video game classics on-board, such as Asteroids, Pong, Breakout, Centipede and more. It’s kind of like having an Atari version of Nintendo’s NES…

The continuing saga of trying to get decent Wi-Fi coverage in a 3000+ sq ft two story house built in the 1970s with steel siding (not aluminum) may finally be coming to a very end thankfully. I have tried many wireless routers made or sold by the 3 major router companies, with various problems. The biggest problem has always been getting good signal access in my 1 acre yard, at least to the swimming pool, or to the many IP security cameras located on property.  The culprit has always seemed to have been that pesky steel siding installed on the home.…

Here we are: two months after the Christmas shopping madness, and I finally find a second NES Classic Edition Controller for my NES Classic Edition from Santa. In the original NES console a player only needed one controller, the game system would just change player and one would have to pass the controller back and forth. With the emulator based NES Classic Edition, that is not how it plays out. When I had one controller, I had to physically unplug the controller from the player one slot and quickly plug it into the player two slot. All that really meant…

Kai is a new device, currently on Kickstarter) that attaches to your glasses, allowing you to have voice control similar to the Amazon Alexa–only with you everywhere you go. You can trigger it by pressing a button on its face or via a voice trigger. It simply clips onto one of the arms of your glasses and rests on the end, conveniently hidden (sort of) by your ear. It then uses bone conduction to get audio to you without sharing it loudly with everyone around you, allowing your communication additional privacy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xAjv9LZAM8M You can listen to an incoming text message…

Those are some strong words right there. Especially since most of our machines here are equipped with the C922 webcam, thus we are quite familiar with it. The C922 has been an amazing webcam for us and now Logitech claims to have one-upped it with the new Logitech Brio Pro. The new Brio is a 4K solution at an affordable price. Not so affordable if you’re an average consumer looking for an average webcam, but perfect for someone looking to use theirs for business or pro hobbyists like competitive gamers and YouTube celebrities (given, some of the latter use professional…

Have you ever found yourself wishing you had something large to draw on during a meeting to share your big idea with your staff or coworkers? Something to share notes openly, but all you had was a TV or a projector nearby but no PC with special app to pull anything off with? Or, maybe you want to have a quick meeting at the hotel before your team embarks on a journey to sell your product in a new town or show. Sometimes it would be nice to have a good old fashion whiteboard to doodle on as those never…

Originally the mount/app allowed you…

There seems to be an endless supply of VR headsets that have flooded the internet and stores. Some trying hard to be unique and the others just dozens of copies of the exact same thing. This is where having a brand people can recognize really helps. Some of those recognizable brands however tend to focus on a specific selection of phones. One of these is Samsung’s Gear VR. An excellent VR headset, however you will only agree if you have a Samsung Galaxy 6 or newer device to go with it. If you own anything else, then it’s back to…

Google has decided to throw the switch on some older versions of Windows by halting support for Gmail if you are using a version of Google’s Chrome browser that is 53 or older. As of version 50 of the famous web browser, it is no longer compatible with Windows Vista or older (ie, XP). The current version of the browser (public release) is 56. The purpose of this change is to help motivate users to upgrade their software and help prevent possible security issues due to outdated versions of the browser or operating system. Since Windows Vista/XP users can only…
