If you’re that good, you can actually win some decent money instead of wasting your earnings on some facebook credits or making in app purchases to make your character stronger. You know who you are! Check out Party Poker!
My MacBook Pro 15″ is awesome going on the road when migrating from workspace to work space, but when I work at home or in my main office, I like having it hooked up to a 21+ inch sized monitor with keyboard and mouse.
For awhile, I’ve been using the Book Arc as a stand to plug in all the external devices but it became a pain unplugging and plugging everything as I come in go. It’s not really that big of a deal but it was at a point where I was toying with the idea of just getting an iMac to use at home. However, spending around $1200 plus tax to satisfy my laziness doesn’t make financial sense! Unfortunately, there aren’t that many docking options available for the MacBooks except for Bookendz which costs around $250, and then the Henge Docks which is about $70.
Based on the reviews I’ve read, the Bookendz is a solid product and Henge Docks received mix reviews with complaints of reliable, build quality, and difficult setup. I decided to take a chance and go the cheaper route and give the Henge Dock a try, and have been quite satisfied with the product so far. Continue reading
I’ve been writing product reviews ranging from mobile phones, PDAs, notebooks, computer hardware, and video games since 1998. I have especially enjoyed reviewing products from Apple and the very first product I have reviewed from them was the 12 inch iBook in December 2004 that I bought from Fry’s Electronics just out of my sheer curiosity.
So pulling this off my Twitter Feed of today’s Apple event… here’s a quick recap!

I was up from 12AM – 3AM putting together a futon, TV stand and setting up a 32 inch Dynex LCD TV they had on sale at Best Buy for $249. The photos are in the order of what the room looked like before I set up anything and all the way to the end result! Did all this with an injured left shoulder by myself.

I know it’s been awhile since I posted anything. Been busy with work and life and have been caught up on multiple projects. Have a bunch of articles and gadgets reviews that I’d like to write up. Hopefully I’ll have some time this weekend. Anyway, here’s a collection of my desktop wallpapers that’s continually expanding.
I’ve been a fan of 13″ notebooks for the past few years because portability is most important to me. Then came the iPad and MacBook Air and it was almost pointless to have the MacBook Pro 13. It’s been acting as a file server for a couple of months and hardly left the house. I bring my Air out to the office and leave the 13″ at home and there are times when 11 and 13 are just TOO small.

The ear cushions arrived but I didn’t get a chance to test drive these till this evening. The way this works is that they go into the headset before adding the eartips and these cushions hang onto your ear much better. Continue reading
So it’s around 3:00 here at my office and I’m taking a break reading the online tech blogs and noticed a lot of significant things happening in the industry today. The three that stood out made a deep enough impression on me to write about.
HTC tells Apple to try competing, rather than suing http://t.co/X1WuAay via @engadget – I gotta hand it to HTC for finally saying what a lot of us have been thinking. I like Apple products but just like a lot of the bigger corporations these days, they are killing innovation by creating lawsuits to everything that remotely resembles their products and ideas. Thanks HTC!
