Author: Sean Michael Kerner (eweek) Two weeks ago, Microsoft first warned its users that it was investigating public reports about a zero-day vulnerability in its Internet Explorer (IE) Web browser. It’s a vulnerability that still has not been patched in a full update and is now actively being exploited by attackers. There is a simple step however that enterprise users can take to mitigate the risk. Microsoft declined to provide any specific timing about when a full patch for the issue, now known as CVE-2013-3893, would be available. “We are aware of a limited number of targeted attacks; customers who…

We use various types of flash memory throughout the office and our personal lives. From SD cards… to Compact Flash… to USB drives. We have a vast collection of gadgets and computers that make very good use of it all. Sometimes however, we require something more than just a normal card. We require *SPEED*. That is where the SanDisk Exreme Pro comes into play. Among the various brands and models that we use all over, this card so far has performed the very best. With speeds of up to 95MB/s (in our experience, we have seen up to 112MB/s). This…

We meant to do a review of this a long time ago but due to mixed feelings about how long it would last compared to the horrible reviews of competing brands, we decided to give it a year and come back to it when 1) we know for sure what we are saying has longevity and 2) we remembered that we haven’t written the review yet ūüôā We have also included our tutorial at the end on how to fix the speaker if it no longer extends all the way (explained below). The X-Mini is a small capsule sized speaker…

We have been on a review kick lately as we have been able to get our hands wrapped around some amazing tech! Especially these last few months. This time, we are taking another spin into different direction, coming at you with a drone review! ¬†The¬†AR.Drone 2.0 Quadricopter Power Edition to be specific. A lot of the consumer-level drones on the market are limited in flight time which has pushed us away from testing them out. Who wants to lug out a drone to play with, just for it to die 5-10 minutes later? We have been following Parrot and their…

Author:¬†Roy Furchgott of NYTimes Three things distinguish the new Logitech Z600 desktop Bluetooth speakers. The manufacturer, Logitech, uses two as selling points and doesn’t say much about the third. The Z600s have an eye-catching design. At about 9.5 inches high, the tapered, cloth-wrapped cylinders look a bit like miniature nuclear power cooling towers, and a textured silver-gray material that wraps them gives the speakers a Modern look. Another distinguishing feature is the three drivers. Two face the listener and the bass faces down. The Z600s¬†pump out some serious volume. I thought their sound was very detailed; you can hear every…

This has been a sensitive topic for us as most of us have been overly picky when it came to projector qualities. Wanting everything from a large throw, great colors, to a nice bright picture. All of this of course using your typical movie theater as a judging variable. On top of that, it has to be generally affordable as most of the “best” projectors can’t compete with flat screen TVs because their price is just too unreasonable to win. Unfortunately, unless you spend more than $6,000 on a projector, it seems it is going to be difficult to match…

From Yahoo News: When it comes to the digital future of Kansas City,¬†Google Fiber, the super-fast Internet service from Google,¬†automatically comes to mind. But it is not the only revolutionary new Internet service provider in town. The¬†KC Freedom Network¬†aims to one-up Google Fiber by bringing truly affordable Internet to the city, according to¬†The Verge. But, wait, isn’t one of the amazing things about Google Fiber that it offers a free Internet option? Well, “free” has some strings attached. Interested customers must pay a $300 construction fee for the service, which can be paid either all at once or in $25…

Author: Laura Lake (About.com) Have you noticed an increase in video placement online?¬† Everywhere you turn you run into videos.¬† There are funny videos, informational videos, product showcase videos and blog videos.¬†¬† Are more videos being produced or is there something behind the video phenomenon? If I had to answer the question, I’d say both.¬†¬† There are businesses that are realizing the impact of videos and because of that more videos are being produced. Videos impact our marketing efforts in several ways.¬† They provide: A¬†human element¬†to your brand. Deliver a more targeted audience. Higher conversion rates. Increased visibility and exposure…

Author:¬†Stephen Shankland (c|net news) It may be a turnaround or it may be a blip, but Internet Explorer’s share of usage resumed growth according to separate studies of the Web. StatCounter and Net Applications disagree about the best way to measure browser usage, but for August, they agreed on one thing: Microsoft’s Internet Explorer had something of a resurgence.

Now we are big fans of everything tech, and even bigger fans of ground breaking tech. Before I get to far ahead of myself though, I should mention that Sony’s FDRAX1 isn’t out yet so it’s hard to get too excited calling it ground breaking just yet…but if it lives up to some of the cameras Sony has released in the past, this is going to turn a lot of heads. Kind of like when the Sony SR-12 first came out, it took the consumer market for a spin offering such a high quality and once professional only (feature-wise) camera…
