Toshiba Satellite Radius 11

Laptops and personal computers are apart of our everyday life of productivity.  If you’re like me, you’re starring at your laptop at least 8-10 hours a day (thanks to blogging, my 20/20 vision was gone a long time ago…)  We carry our laptops with us to work on the go and attempt additional productivity in our downtime – but did you know there’s a new affordable option, perfect for entrepreneurs, college kids – and a great alternative to expensive MacBook Air models.  

Toshiba has launched the Satellite Radius 11, a 2-in-1 convertible with an 11.6” touchscreen that can be used in five different modes – Laptop, Tablet, Tabletop, Presentation and Audience. With a starting price of $329.99 MSRP, the unit serves as a versatile, portable and stylish device that can perform everyday tasks for work and play tasks alike.

January 8th, 2013 by Christen Rochon

 

Let’s face it, not all nerds are created equal.  We know this, and thankfully we’re not at the top of any nerd’s megabrained list.  However, we definitely know a thing or two about mobile, computing and consumer electronics – and more importantly, we know that this year’s #2013CES will be the most impactful Consumer Electronics Show yet.  If you’re wondering how in the world a electronics convention could have any impact on what you have going on in your life today, you’re sadly missing the boat.  The announcements, premieres and unveilings happening over the next two days might just be the products meant to make your life unbelievably easier and impact your 2013 more than you know.

1. samsung, Samsung, SAMSUNG!

Among the companies present at CES, Samsung will be one of the most influential. The company has evolved from challenger to champion in recent years, displacing Sony as the world’s largest manufacturer of high-end TVs. Not only has Samsung produced amazing televisions, home electronics and smartphones throughout the years now with their sights set on tablets and cameras – this company is sure to set the standard for innovation during CES 2013.

Why It Will Impact Your Year:  This is the year where consumer electronics meets customized streaming content and word on the block is that Samsung has already begun making waves into the next level of content creation with the mSpot streaming services.

2.  Connected Convenience

This year, if it’s not ready to go out of the box, it’s not truly effortlessly connected and therefore could no way become a leader in the world of connected convenience.  That’s what it’s all about this year at CES and you’ll undoubtedly see and hear more and more about Bluetooth this and WiFi that.  With over 61% of households having WiFi, manufacturers are banking on making products that are easily parable and that makes the most of this new wireless lifestyle.

Why It Will Impact Your Year:  Have you sat in a newer model Chevy, Cadillac or Acura lately?  Not only are households becoming well connected but cars are too.  We’re headed into a wireless world, whether you like it or not and if you want to transition with the latest in consumer electronics, you better learn how to pair that smartphone with your refridgerator, your mp3 player to your car and that tablet to your tv.

3.  iEverything

Even during its’ absence from CES – Apple still manages to dominate with this year’s iLounge Pavilion. The iLounge Pavilion features the latest and greatest third-party accessories and software for Apple’s iPod®, iPhone® and iPad®. From electronic plug-ins to fashionable cases, speakers, headphones and exciting new games and applications, you’ll be amazed by the opportunities created by their great designs and features.  More than 500 companies that make peripheral technologies for Apple devices have signed up to show their wares at CES.

Why It Will Impact Your Year:  Apple is constantly evolving it’s products, from mp3 players, to smartphones and now with rumors of a new revolutionary television device – you’ll definitely need to be aware of all the gadgets, accessories that could make for easy living with your new tv in the future.

4.  Windows 8

First off, Microsoft isn’t officially at the show this year – but you can expect more Windows 8 tablets, laptops, and tablet / laptop hybrids boasting the new operating system in it’s physical absence.  While many of the major companies — Dell, HP, Lenovo, Toshiba, Samsung, etc. — released Windows 8 tablets and computers before the holidays, you might be surprised at what some were holding back. We’re also holding out for some interesting tablet concepts from Intel, Nvidia and others.

Why It Will Impact Your Year: As supercharged laptop computers evolve, each company is not only attempting to convince you that their product is similar, but they’re also becoming competitively priced to aggressively battle it out for that consumer dollar.  (It’s a great time to be in the market for a laptop or desktop computers.)

November 3rd, 2012 by Tech Staff

 

If you find yourself more interested in answering a messaging alert, less engaging in real life activities and having a shorter attention span than usual – then you’re not alone.  Like many others, your Facebook addiction is affecting your mind in adverse ways.  Facebook and Internet addiction can have damaging effects, such as a decrease in our attention span — in fact, since 2000, our collective attention span has decreased by 40%.  In fact, the social media addiction epidemic is SO REAL that in China, Taiwan and South Korea “Internet Addiction Disorder” is already accepted as a psychological diagnosis. Next year it will be included in the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders (DSM-V), the American “bible of psychology.”

How To Access Your Favorite Websites (Even If They’re Down…)

October 30th, 2012 by Christen Rochon

 

Chances are, if you’re on the Northeast or remotely affected by the latest weather system to hit the U.S., you’re at home or at work feaverishly searching online fo news and information regarding news headlines leading lady – Sandy.

Hurricane – Tropical – Super – Storm Sandy has wreaked pure havoc across the Northeast, causing major flooding, wind damage and over an estimated $20 Billion in damages.  Some of the damages found include server systems of sites like Huffington Post, Lifehacker and more.  Lucky for us, Lifehacker has shared a few tips on how to access web sites while they’re down.

 

Access Cached Pages Through Google

Google caches a large portion of the internet, and it’s easy to access those caches when a site isn’t available.  All you have to do is search for a URL prepended with “cache:” like this:  cache:http://lifehacker.com

That’ll take you to the cached version of Lifehacker.com.  You can replace it with any URL to get the latest version Google currently has in its cache.

Alternatively, the Google Cache Bookmarklet helps you access the cached version of any page you visit with just one click.  Just visit any page, and if it fails to load you can click the bookmarklet to visit the cached version immediately.

 

 

If that doesn’t work, you can check out a few more Lifehacker.com tips here. Happy web surfing!
