    Review: Waterfield Cargo Mambo Combo Messenger-Style Laptop Bag

    This is one tough, yet elegant bag that will carry your gear in style. I have a
    lot of bags, a whole closet full of ‘em. Although I usually don’t get bags in
    the $200+ dollar range, (I’m kinda cheap that way), this bag is worth the price
    if you need an incredibly well made bag that can go from casual to client
    meeting.

  • Review: Iomega StorCenter ix2 Network Storage

    Review: Iomega StorCenter ix2 Network Storage

    Reviewing a NAS is probably not at the top of my list of things to do, but the Iomega ix2 is a dead simple network storage solution that works well. The model I reviewed is the 2TB variety and I finally caved and started backing up my files. Even though I set it up RAID 1 style, 1TB was ample enough to handle all of my content with plenty of room to spare. I wouldn’t recommend this to… Read More

    Review: Western Digital WD TV HD Media Player

    For months now, I have been trying to play .MKV and other video files on my living room front projector. At first I tried to connect a laptop directly to the TV. But this didn’t always work, the audio was crappy, and it was awkward to have a laptop connected to the projector. I started using my XBOX 360 to play video files. At first I wanted to stream the files across my network. This… Read More

    Review: Targus File Share Cable for Mac

    Guest review: John Ha I recently bought a Macbook to replace my aging Windows XP laptop. I figured that, like any new computer migration, I would load the applications I needed and then copy the data from my old laptop to the new one. I have a large USB thumb drive and a couple external hard drives, so no sweat – just use them to migrate everything. So when my brother told me he would… Read More
