Projectors are really cool. Point one at any wall just about
anywhere and you've got yourself a home theater.
Of course, you'll need to connect a laptop or DVD player.
You'll need to position everything close to an AC outlet for power.
Oh, and don't forget about speakers. Maybe I should have said,
projectors are really cool--once you get past all the
Wouldn't it be great, then, to have a projector with
everything you need built right in? Like this one: Staples has the
3M Streaming Projector for $159.99 shipped
(plus sales tax in most states). That's just about half the $299
The Streaming Projector is compact enough to fit in the palm
of your hand, yet it's like a self-contained home theater. It runs
on a rechargeable battery, so you don't need a nearby outlet.
Yesterday, Google introduced the Chromecast, an HDTV accessory that's kind
of like a cross between an Apple TV and a Roku box. But here's the
kicker: It's only $35.
The gizmo looks a lot like a USB flash drive, but instead of
plugging into your PC, it plugs into one of your TV's available
Apple just took the wraps off the heavily rumored iPad
Mini. As I expected, it starts not at $249 or even $299, but
$329. The big question: Is it worth the money?
That's a tricky question to answer when you factor in
competing tablets like the Amazon Kindle Fire HD, Barnes &
Noble Nook HD, and Google Nexus--all of which start at $199.
For many buyers, especially those looking for a tablet to go
under the tree, that's too big a difference to ignore. Heck, the
original Kindle Fire currently sells for just $159, literally less
than half the price of a Mini.
That said, I think Apple's new baby offers enough added value
to warrant its higher price. Here are five reasons why I think the
iPad Mini is a good deal:
1. Bigger Screen
The Mini has a 7.9-inch screen. The Fire, Nook, and Nexus all
There's nothing like a gross-out news story to offer a little
perspective. Last week, I might've complained that shipping was taking
longer than expected. Now, I'm just glad that my gadgets don't arrive
covered in gum and vomit.
As The Consumerist reports, this was the sight that greeted a Dell Outlet customer when his refurbished laptop arrived with gum on the inside and a barf-like substance on the outside. What's worse, Dell initially blamed FedEx.
the problem seems to be mostly sorted out, and the man will soon have a
shiny, new, non-waste-covered laptop on the way. And, thankfully, the
vast majority of refurbished laptops don't have this problem, or any
problems, really. We should be careful not to take the wrong lesson from
this. Refurbs are still a smart choice. Read on to learn why.
On Tuesday, Apple announced the new iPhone 4S
in a humble ceremony, with little fanfare from the press. Nonplussed,
the blogosphere instead focused on more pressing issues, such as the
rate of new job creation. It was a day like any other.
No wait--don't! These little suckers may look delicious and crunchy and they may fool you by coming in "flavors" like cherry, lemon, blueberry, orange, and green apple, but you can't eat them. Or I guess you could, but you probably wouldn't like the taste. Unless you like eating electronics, in which case maybe you shouldn't be reading about lollipop-shaped speakers in the first place...
