Analogix SlimPort HDMI Video Adapter Review

The Analogix SlimPort micro USB to HDMI adapter for devices like the Nexus 7 2013 tablet works well, but it is very expensive compared to MHL options and is less convenient than emerging wireless screencast options like Chromecast or Miracast.

Samsung Galaxy Qi Wireless Charging Pad Review

Samsung Galaxy Qi Wireless Charging Pad Review

The 2013 version of the Nexus 7 (Nexus 7.2) Android tablet has many advantages over its predecessor. It’s thinner, more powerful, has longer battery life, etc. One thing I’ve come to love about it is support for the Qi wireless inductive power standard, which allows you to charge devices without plugging them in.

I haven’t been too impressed by my Amazon Kindle Fire. One of the reasons I disliked it was the lack of key apps that I use on the Amazon app market. The biggest missing app was Dropbox, which I use to synchronize my KeePass database file. I manage over 550 different passwords via KeePass, so […]

A lot of my friends back home had two natural disaster scares last month: an earthquake that hit the eastern seaboard, and a hurricane that bashed a lot of North Carolina and Virginia. Some of my friends are still without power, and some had their homes and property struck by felled oak trees. My friends […]
