myUTN USB Server Secures Your Peripheral Over Fiber Optics

usb server security

SEH launched a mini USB server designed to secure USB peripherals over fiber optic and Ethernet networks.  What the myUTN USB Server does is allow connection of a USB device into your fiber optics network or Ethernet network without needing additional USB cables or drivers.  Imagine plugging in your printer or scanner into a fiber optic port on the wall rather than a traditional USB port of your computer.  In addition, the myUTN USB Server provides top-level security so data being transmitted over the network wont be compromised.  A good example is connecting a USB bar code scanner for products or medical devices to the network with ease and security.

Review: Telescope Lens for 3G iPhone

Review: Telescope Lens for 3G iPhone

I was so excited to get the new telescope lens for the 3G iPhone, but at the same time, apprehensive that it would be a gimmick. I was thrilled to find out the telescope lens actually worked!  The case used to mount the lens also snaps On and Off quite easily.

Using the case without the lens is a great way to add some protection to the iPhone, but when using a dock station, you’ll need to remove the case. The lens screws on and off so you can fit this inside your travel pack and take it out when you need it. Obviously you won’t leave the lens on while cruising around town.It doesn’t come with a lens cover which is fine for me, but considering it’s stored more than used, especially if you are planning to be mobile, it would be nice to have something so the lens doesn’t accidentally scratch.  For me, a zip-lock bag works fine. I took some photos around the house.  Just like a real zoom camera lens, you have Continue Reading

USB Volcano

Here is an excellent example for the term “useless USB gadget,” the USB volcano.  The USB volcano is comprised of a plastic shaped volcano which blows red plastic bubbles out from the center after you’ve filled up the jar with water.

The USB volcano illuminates, so when the lights are off you get a cool glow effect from the LED lights.  Gadgets4All is pitching this as a great décor item to spice up your desk space or turn your boring atmosphere into some more Jurassic Park.  I don’t know about that.  Even at $18 I’m having a hard time finding a reason why.

Review: 4 Port USB Car Charger Adapter

Review: 4 Port USB Car Charger Adapter

I love this thing…It’s exactly what I wanted. I did not want to purchase a different charger for every device I have and my bluetooth speakerphone adapter and both cell phones are all charged via USB cable so now I can charge all three of them through the USBFever 4 port USB car charger and adapter.

I don’t think I’ll ever use all four at once but knowing that you can is empowering (pardon my pun) After a trip to Sea World, my iPhone 3G was just about depleted (no surprise about the short battery life – but I wouldn’t trade it for any other phone, in fact, I’m slowing transitioning from Windows to Mac for my personal computer as I’m not playing FPS games anymore and the Vista Operating System turned into a huge let down for me). So I decided to set the iPhone stop watch and take some screenshots by pressing Continue Reading

Yesterday [Sep 23, 2008] Transcend announced their newest V20 drive is available at 64GBs.  That’s as big as my laptop from 10 years ago.  Now it’s the size of my thumb.  I put the date in here to so we can reflect back in another 5 years and laugh.
