This is an update of a review I wrote last year, which focused on the smaller, 7-inch version of the Kodak Pulse.
In my 20-plus years as a tech writer, I've owned or reviewed about a zillion gadgets. Some were good, many were forgettable, and a few were downright dreadful (I'm looking at you, Microsoft Spot Watch).
But a select few gadgets earned a special place in my heart, just by being insanely cool, insanely practical, or both. On this very exclusive list: the Apple iPhone, Palm V PDA, Roomba robot vacuum, TiVo DVR and, most recently, Kodak Pulse digital photo frame. It's available with two screen options: 7-inch and the newer 10-inch.
Kodak may have stumbled a bit while transitioning from its historic film roots to the modern digital world, but lately the company has created some killer products. For example, the Pulse digital photo frame remains one of my favorite products ever, and the new Easyshare Touch is my new favorite camera.
Did Santa bring you a new smartphone? Tablet? E-reader? Bluetooth
speaker? Gadgets like these need power, and it seems like there's
never enough--especially when you're traveling.
What's more, if you have an older mobile device, chances are good
its battery is starting to show signs of wear, meaning it doesn't
last nearly as long between charges.
All the more reason to pack a mobile charger. Ah, but which one?
There are literally hundreds of different makes and models out
there, all in different shapes and sizes, all promising to keep
your devices humming indefinitely.
My pick: just about anything from Anker's Astro series. And for a
limited time, you can get the top-end model for a song: the Anker Astro E5 mobile charger for $49.99
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.
Ever since I saw The Terminator as a child, I've had an ever-present fear that robots will eventually take over the world. Then about ten years ago, I saw the Roomba Vacuum and thought, oh god, it's happening! Of course, Roombas are very, very cool (and now they have Scoobas and other crazy sweep-on-their-own vacuums), but hardly Cyberdyne Systems' worthy. I mean, they don't even have eyes.
Now that Mother's Day is over and done, it's time to start shopping for the big guy. You know, Dad. Forget the ties and tools--what he wants is tech. I'm talking gadgets, gear, and guy toys. As a dad myself, I know just the right stuff to shop for.
Read on for five of my favorite ways to honor thy father.
