For more information and to include yourself in this course, follow this link and…

Seagate launched their 600 Series SSD drives mid-last year and they really kicked up a lot of dust in the SSD community. We had briefly touched on them, as well as a few others at the time. Recently however, they were kind enough to send one our way to test out so that we can dig a little deeper and bring you a solid state review. Our first impression when holding it was “wow, this drive is really thin”. The drive we tested was the 5mm (thickness) model, designed for smaller devices such as tablet and small notebooks that focus…

Sony developed a wireless Walkman MP3 player and headphones (in one) that is truly waterproof and was brave enough to market it in a way that proves that it actually delivers on such promise. This player/earbuds combo launched inside of a water bottle inside of special vending machines. These vending machines were spread out to specific pools for consumers to discover. We don’t know if the water was actually consumable or not, but it was a great concept. The Walkman comes with 4GB of internal storage for your music and provides about 60 minutes of playback time on a full…

Vizio has announced that they plan to release a 120-inch Ultra HD LED TV later this year (price unknown as of yet). It will be part of their Reference TV series and will include a fully back-lit screen with 384 desperate zones that can be dimmed independently, allowing for improved blacks and contrast. Vizio said it will either come with a soundbar setup with wireless subwoofer (undisclosed as of yet, if the soundbar will be integrated or a separate piece).  No further information has been given by Vizio at this time.

Today we received this medium sized, very interesting speaker from the great people at Acoustic Research (Acoustic Research portable wireless Speaker AWS5B3). When our team visited their display at the CES (Consumer Electronic Show) in Las Vegas last month, we were very interested in real world reviews for this kind of product.  Let’s get started: The speaker can be connected to a sound source in a variety of ways, including direct, Bluetooth, and with an included 900 MHz transmitter. Direct is like many portable speakers in that it uses a 3.5 mm jack and the included cable to connect to…

Recently in this month’s “Patch Tuesday”, Microsoft addressed a number (24) of security holes and bugs in Internet Explorer. However, they seemed to have missed one that is affecting Internet Explorer (IE) 10 which attackers are currently exploiting all over. The attack takes advantage of a “Use-After-Free” memory corruption flaw in Internet Explorer 10, which enables them to abuse the memory space from allocated program space. They do this via a “watering-hole attack”  which attacks users when they visit legitimate websites, one of which being the U.S. Veterans of Foreign War (by infecting the legitimate website). It is considered a…

If you have an account with Kickstarter, it is highly advised that you login and change your password as soon as possible due to a security breach. Breached information included usernames, passwords as well as personal contact information. As of now they have claimed that no credit card or banking information has been accessed. Kickstarter is a crowd-funding website for all sorts of projects, such as movies, music, video games, gadgets and more. It has grown into becoming one of the most popular fund raising sites on the web over the last few years. They were very swift in letting…

The Logitech UE Boom is the older bother and next model up from the UE Mini Boom (which we recently reviewed) Bluetooth speaker. Retailing for around $199, it is larger, heavier and packs a great deal of sound into a small bit of space. Now that we have had the time to bounce back and forth between the two speakers for some time now, we have been able to enjoy each speaker’s advantages. Where the Mini Boom focused mostly on a “lot of volume” in “a tiny speaker”, the Boom focuses on that plus range. It covers a great range…

Mozilla has been teasing about the upcoming redesign of their popular Firefox browser for some time now. Originally going to be released towards the end of last year, it was pushed ahead for further development. During this time they have shared many renditions of what it will (or could) look like. It seems they are pushing for more of a simplified Chrome-like interface that is packed with customization options so that you can really fit it to your needs. It will be a consistent design across devices (PCs, tablets, phones, etc) and various releases of the Firefox browser, with improved…

There are a lot of soundbar options available to the market, but not all of them feature 5.1, decent sound, wireless speakers (outside of power) and carries a good price on top of it. VIZIO pulls it off with the S4251w-B4 5.1 Soundbar. This system delivers a decent amount of sound to it which conquers the other options within it’s price range. The audio is clear, crisp and although it doesn’t have a perfect range to it….it’s also only $299. It’s really had to argue with a price like that. Typically even brands like Samsung (which we are big fans…
