Magnets and USB Hubs – Good Or Bad?

It all boils down to where you connect the magnets.  For the most part this magnetic USB hub is best designed to work with office furniture, cabinets and the like.  Probably not the best idea to set it on the computer chassis – although it wouldn’t do too much harm.

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

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

Nice Arm Rest For the Work-a-Holic

Not every work station is ideal.  In fact, most people probably have a desk area overloaded with paper, USB gadgets and family photos, so this portable arm-rest comes in very handy. Although it’s not a USB gadget, the arm-rest could be an invaluable tool to help fight Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or fatigue from your arm, elbow and shoulders.

Even as I type this article, my elbow is hanging off the side of the desk so a little more desk space would definitely help me. Ask yourself, do you need a little extra elbow support? Continue Reading
