I've been using it for a while, and it is definitely worth a look into. Check it out for yourself.

Sometimes A Product Truly Lives Up To Its Name

  I have to admit that I love what I do.  I get to blog about some of the best products around, and every now and then the companies take notice and send me products that they want reviewed.  This was no exception.  I received the new iWow 3D adapter for iDevices from SRS, and got a chance to put it through its paces.  This seems like a wonderful opportunity for someone who is an audiophile to take a product and put it to use and see what it is truly capable of.  So what did I do?  I decided that instead of hogging all of the awesome, I would go ahead and let a few friends play around with it and give me their thoughts.  One of these friends is Holly, and here is her impressions of the iWow 3D in her own words.

Kingston Wi-Drive - A Solution To An "Unsolvable" Problem

  There are times that a solution to a problem seems like the most obvious thing to an outsider looking in.  People who don't own iDevices tend to think that when someone runs out of space that they can just add some more.  "Slap a new micro SD in it and call it good."  Well, Steve Jobs and Co. decided against that being a viable option.  In ANY of their products.  With the massive amount of iPads, iPods, and iPhones out there today, you would think that someone would have mentioned to them that they needed an expansion port.  Instead, Jobs decided to leave the device in 2 or 4 flavors.  "Oh, they don't like 16GB?  Give them 32GB or 64GB and let that be that!"  - Steve Jobs

Safety for the children...

Recently I participated in a BzzCampaign for Trend Micro, specifically the Online Guardian.  Unlike most campaigns that I participated in, this one was geared much more towards peace of mind than it was playing with products.  With 3 children in the house, 2 of which get online sometimes, having a product that could allow for their protection as well as a possibility of monitoring their activities seems like a good idea.

Kingston SSD vs Lee Majors

  "Gentlemen, we can rebuild him. We have the technology. We can make him better than he was. Better...stronger...faster!"  The opening to the Six Million Dollar man and my computers have a lot in common lately.  Both were just average, but forced into a situation beyond their control.  For Steve Austin, it was a crash that caused him to be rebuilt.  For my computer, it was the same.  So I contacted Kingston about getting one of their SSDs with the intention of putting it through its paces.  Little did I know that would happen, and so much more.

In Which CJ Ceases To Exist

  I have an odd secret to confess.  Not many people know about it, but I guess that the secret is about to be well known.  Are you ready?  Delightful.  I can turn invisible.  Wait, hold on!  I'm not crazy.  I have come to this conclusion after years of research into why I can successfully be ignored both at brick and mortar stores as well as by customer service.  I can look you right in the eyes, give you a VERY specific piece of information, repeat it, and you will still get it wrong.  This must be because of my powers of invisibility, which distort my image, voice, and actions from normal human senses.  I know that my dog could sense me, and this doesn't extend to anyone who knows me, but all others can successfully not see me for long periods of time.

Of Comic Books, Cartoons, and Fanboys...

  The people who read this blog have a connection to me and who I am.  We are kindred spirits.  Our passions for technology are apparent not just in products we own but the things we read about.  For those of you, I say thanks.  Now you can stop reading right here, because this next little bit won't be about technology, but another passion of mine: Comic books.  WAIT!!  No!!!  Come back!
