Japanese Company Makes Dock Station An iDream

Yet another “i” product for all those Apple gadgets, but this time we feel it’s a product worth mentioning.  The iPADock is a dock station to power or sync all your Apple gear in one handy location.  The iDevices has designated USB power ports, designated USB-to-PC sync ports and additional flash memory ports for SD cards, SDHC and Compact Flash downloading.

So if you haven’t asked yourself how to clean up your sync area at work or home for the Apple gear…don’t worry, that day will come.  For example, at our house we have 4 iPhones, two iPods, a FlipVideo and several cameras.  All of them will receive power via USB.

First off, we have 4 iPhones because we’ve migrated from 3G or 3GS to the 4.  The iPods are legacy products we had before the phones, yet we still use them for workouts…and the cameras, well those are good anytime.

What I like about the iPADock station are all the power and sync options.

PS Jailbreak Sales Solution Held Up In Red Tape

PS3 jailbreakingOver the past several weeks we’ve read reports about the PS3 Jail breaking solution via USB whereby the jailbreak tricks the console into thinking it’s in debug mode and thus gives you access to the device like never before.

The PS3 jailbreak would allow the use of illegal games as well as homebrew games to be played on the console.  In addition, the hack also blocked mandatory updates from Sony which could overwrite the hack and secure the device once again.

Jail breaking like this is nothing new, in fact we’ve heard about it with the iPhone for [literally] years.  However, with the PS3 it was a bit different.  It was different because the PS3 has been a platform which has remained unbroken or un-hacked [if that’s a word] for nearly a decade.  That is a feat no other gaming company has

Mitsubishi Home Theater 3D TV With USB

Mitsubishi is paving the way for hi-end 3D TVs with their recent announcement of a 40, 46 and 55 inch HD set.  The specifications are impressive but it seems there might be a disconnect on what they are making verse what people want.

Mitsubishi 3D TV

Lets start with the specifications.  Given the sizes above, you also have an internal 1TB hard drive, ten Diatone system speakers, a USB slot, a SD slot and HDMI connectivity and a pair of 3D glasses.

The following might be just my take on the situation, but I’ve found most folks like their DVR [hard drive] to be separate than their TV so that if something goes wrong, you don’t need to ship the entire thing back.  It also seems that with a USB port on the HD TV, you can now just attached storage.

I also find it funny that you spend  between $3K and $6K for the above, and they supply you with 1 pair of 3D glasses.  I’ll chalk this up to bad reporting from the original article and assume at least a 4 pack comes with the set.

Finally – is it just me, or does it seem

The wireless USB dock station does support Mac and Windows operating systems and after a quick scan of some blogs/forums we cannot conclude if the Warpia supports Linux.

We found the Warpia as low as $140 here.

Mini USB Monitor – Expand Your Netbook

Netbooks are great portable PCs and I would switch from my full sized Fujitsu laptop to my Acer Netbook if it wasn’t for the limited monitor space.

mini USB monitor

I understand there are trade-offs for ultra portable Netbooks verse size, speed and performance.  But with this new Lilliput USB monitor for only $99 it’s really got me thinking.  A switch might be eminent.

So for just $99 you get a 7 inch display with resolution of 800 x 480 dpi.  The contrast ratio is nice at 400:1 and connects only through a USB port.

So with the combination of my Netbook [we have 7 at work] along with the USB mini monitor, I’m still packing less weight and space then my full blown laptop.

Since there are no drivers needed for the Mac or PC it’s truly plug-n-play and ready to work with any PC, work or home.

So for $99 it’s worth a shot.  What do you think?
