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.
I've long been a fan of Bluetooth speakers, which pair wirelessly
with your smartphone or tablet to provide a kind of self-contained
Sonos system: Your music library, plus services like Pandora and
Spotify, streamed to any room in the house.
However, with rare exception, these speakers tend to be small
and underpowered, which is problem if you want to use one in, say,
a large room or at the beach. Or to serve up tunes at a noisy
The Braven 850 is a portable Bluetooth speaker that's
surprisingly powerful given its compact size. I've been playing
with one for the past couple weeks, and it's a terrific product. In
fact, it's my favorite Bluetooth speaker to date.
The 850 measures 9.5 x 4 x 2.8 inches, roughly the same
size as the more celebrated Jawbone Big Jambox.
Your DVR is terrible. I mean, really embarrassingly awful. It's
functional, yes, but has one of the most unattractive and
unfriendly interfaces ever. I threw up in my mouth a little bit
just thinking about it.
And you're not alone: a lot of other cable-TV providers have
similarly bad boxes. That's probably why so many people turn to
TiVo. As third-party DVRs go, it's just about the best option out
there. (Okay, its pretty much the only option out there. Still,
it's a great one.)
Just one problem: TiVo charges an insane $19.99 per month
for service. And that's on top of the outrageous rates I'm already
paying for cable. (Whoa, more vomit.
Whether you're a techno-geek or a Luddite, eventually you end up with electronic waste. Those old computers, cell phones, and other gadgets that go unused and obsolete. What do you do with them? It may depend on where you live.
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.
