Tons of Apple Announcement
A Little More Indeed...
Today at 10 p.m. Pacific Time (12a.m. GMT +7), Apple finally gave us the final touch to finish 2012 (or isn't it?). They got a lot of things to announce, starting from the heavily-rumored iPad Mini, a refreshed next-gen 9.7" iPad, 13" Retina MacBook Pro, refreshed Mac Mini, and the new iMac. It seems like the invitation was... wrong? Hehehe
Stay tuned, for I'm going to deliver the announcement one by one :D
you do when you have a Windows tablet that doesn't include a keyboard dock? No,
you neither throw it into the trash can or merely play games with it. You'll
buy a set of wireless mouse and keyboard and of course, a USB OTG cable and put
them together. That way, you'll have yourself a complete 'hybrid' notebook,
albeit cheap. Now, I'm
pretty certain that you're thinking that there's no such set that has the right
size for your tablet. It'd make you look very ridiculous, and you'll be ashamed
to bring it with you, even to your favorite café. Fortunately, I have a
solution that I recently found. The Logitech mk240 Keyboard + Mouse Combo. It's not the best solution, but at least it can save you some cash and a little bit of embarrassment. With the
width almost equal to a widescreen 10" tablet, this might be the
closest-to-perfection keyboard to pair with your lonely Windows tablet. It's
quite thick, but quite easy to carry, consid…
(Update: Due to comments of one of our readers +Detrio Detrio, I've updated the conclusion in this review. Be extra careful when using this device, as any cosmetic damage will void the warranty.)
In this modern day
and age, Internet has been moved from tertiary necessity to secondary (or even
primary for certain people in certain countries). Internet connection is no
longer tied to messy, limited cable, for wireless is the current way to go.
Unfortunately, even so, not all areas in our life is covered by wireless
networks. Although this limitation has been slightly overcome with cellular
data connection, some devices still don't support SIM cards such as laptops and
Wi-Fi only tablets. Wi-Fi tethering would certainly kill our phone's battery,
so what's the solution? That's right, Mi-Fi. Mini Wi-Fi router which supports
SIM cards and cellular data connection on the go. One example of Mi-Fi
is the ZTE MF90 I've reviewed quite some time ago. Recently, a new model ha…
Honestly, I've never thought that I would ever need a USB hub. In case you don't know what a USB Hub is, it's an accessory that allows you to 'multiply' one of your USB ports to more than one (usually 4 ports). Anyway, I thought that way because my old Dell Inspiron has 4 USB ports. That's more than enough for me. In fact, I was surprised that there are only a handful of laptops that actually have 4 USB ports, regardless which version of USB it has. Now, I have two additional computers: a MacBook Pro and an Acer Iconia W510 tablet. Both of them have limited USB ports; in fact, I have to use an OTG cable for the latter. That fact forces me to finally turn to USB Hub.
Yesterday, on Christmas day, I came across this little product. It's pretty rare to see a hub that uses USB 3.0 ports, so I decided to take a look. It was a little bit pricey, but I thought it was going to be worth it in the coming years. USB 3.0 devices may still be limited in number, but it w…
