Review: EVGA UV Plus+ USB 2.0 Video Adapter

I reported on the EVGA UV Plus+ USB video adapter a couple weeks ago and today I found this good EVGA USB video adapter Review from TigerDirect. The video is about 4min long and has some terrible comedy – but funny to watch in a pathetic way – like The Office. If you need some more detailed information about the EVGA USB video adapter, or on the fence and need someone to verbally push you over the edge, check this out: Can’t view the video? Click here.

Mobile Phone Projectors by Texas Instruments

On many occasions I’ve wanted a projector for my cell phone.  My most common need is for sharing photos stored on my phone to my folks, who’s sight isn’t that great.  Texas Instruments is putting on a full court press to get projectors bundled in with cell phones by year’s end.  Putting aside my trivial needs for a phone projector you take this product into the business world and all sorts of applications pop up.

It will be interesting to see how small these units are, what kind of power they will draw from either you cell phone or power plug and what kind of clarity will be displayed.  TI did mention DLP technology for some models which would resolve any concerns for clarity and quality.  TI also mentioned by year 2010 the cell phone projector business could be as popular as camera phones.

VGA, DVI and HDMI to USB Trifecta Power House Adapter

On the heels of announcing the EVGA USB to VGA or DVI adapter comes USB Fever with their power house trifecta USB to VGA, DVI and HDMI adapter.  I believe it’s the first USB video adapter with these three options. So with the news of USB Fevers multi-display adapter we can revisit the idea of boosting your video space.  For me, this product is of special interest as I’m currently running a 19″ wide screen off my laptop dock station.  Unfortunately the laptop doesn’t have enough video processing to push two monitors.  The USB Fever multi-display USB adapter solves this problem.

It appears EVGA has an edge on higher end resolution, but the USB Fever will still get you a max 1400×1050 resolution.  This is ideal for 19″ wide screens.  The VGA, DVI and HDMI video adapter can string up to 6 monitors together and will work through powered USB hubs.  I would venture to say this solution isn’t ideal for hi-end graphics applications like 3D modeling or gaming, but would be a good product for use of viewing spreadsheets, email, word processing, web surfing, blogging, Photoshop and TV.

Myka: BitTorrent Set Top Box Is King Of The Hill

Set Top boxes have a big limitation in that you get Pigeon Holed into one device such as AppleTV or the forthcoming NetFlix unit, but the Myka could change the landscape forever.  The Myka is a BitTorrent device which will work with anything the web has to offer and can download/play MPEG2, H.264, WMV and DivX media.

myka bittorrent

As Wired reports, the Myka is userfriendly because it takes the nerd out of the BitTorrent process.  The Myka is intelligent enough to provide content (legal or otherwise) from a Peer2Peer network without all the advanced skills often required to pull off a BitTorrent download.  The Linux based box is a simple connection to the TV via HDMI, composite (ouch), S-Video or SPDIF and connects to the internet via eithernet or WiFi.  The Myka comes with a variety of internal hard drive configurations (80, 160 or 500GB) and includes an external USB port for additional storage or future connectivity / peripheral options.
“There’s no way the content providers will allow this pirate box on the market, right? Wrong. Myka already has the official BitTorrent service on board, which means it will carry legitimate content from 20th Century Fox, MTV, Warner and Playboy, amongst others.”
Wired posted a full interview with Myka’s president Dan Lovy, so if you’d like to learn more about the Myka set top box which will rule them all, jump. Continue Reading

Credit Card Size Digital Video Player

 Is that a PMP in your pocket or are you just happy to see me? Sorry, that’s all I could think of for this super mini video player that sports a 2.4″ or 2.8″ full-size bright high-res LCD display. The device can be expanded with a memory card (T-Flash or MicroSD) but comes with 2GB built-in. The battery life will let you play video for 3-4 hours and audio for 6-8 hours.

The device is so simple but really combines many features people look for in a PMP including simplicity of transferring video to the device (supports USB mass-storage mode for easy transfer of video on any OS), expandability memory, charging via USB (when traveling I hate bring extra chargers) and can play FM Radio, Text, Pictures, Games and Videos.
