Win a Pandigital eReader
Sometimes, gadgets can change your life. Remember sending your first email? Seems like forever ago, doesn’t it? Now you’re checking it every day on your phone, wishing you could get away from it all. Today, it’s time to take things to the next level, and start doing all of your reading on a gorgeous, full-color eReader. That’s why Mario Armstrong and his team are giving away the Pandigital Novel 7″ Color eReader. Whether you want to check up on an email or PDF file before an important meeting, read a full-color children’s book to your kids, or even just listen to some tunes, the Pandigital eReader is the perfect way to get it all done.

Work Better in a Noise Free Environment
If you’re anything like us, you’re just as likely to be working from home as you are at the airport or the coffee shop. But none of these places are ideal work environments, are they? Maybe you’re dealing with screaming kids, people talking loudly on their phones, or even just the background noise. When you’re trying to get important work done on-the-go, you need to create a productive atmosphere and reduce distractions. That’s why this week we’re taking a look at a small investment that could make a big impact on your mobile office life: noise canceling headphones.

Boomerang Gmail Plugin Adds a Mobile Client: Schedule Your Emails from Anywhere
One of the coolest things to come out in the past few years was the Boomerang plugin for Gmail. It let users of the Firefox and Chrome web browsers ‘schedule’ their emails to run at a later date. Up too late at the office working unpaid overtime on a project but don’t want your boss to know? Schedule that crucial email to him for 8am instead of sending it now at 4am. Have something that you can’t talk about until next Tuesday, but you’ve written the email now? Schedule it to send later. Needless to say, Boomerang is one of those great products that completely revolutionized how we use email. Now, they’re announcing an exciting new product: a mobile application that lets you schedule your emails while on-the-go straight from your phone.

Walkie Talkies – An Overview   Leave a comment

What will you do if i stated I had found a radio earpiece article that is not only interesting but informative as well? I knew you would not believe me, so here it is the educational, excellent and fascinating editorial

headphonesWalkie talkies are unique in that the half-duplex channel they operate on will only allow one radio to transmit at any time, though there are no limits to the amount that can listen.
Rather than have an earpiece similar to a telephone, they have a built in speaker so the unit does not have to be held to the ear. They are used to connect to both other handheld units and to radio stations which are in a fixed location. The typical shape is of a large telephone handset, with a fixed antenna poking out of the top of the unit.

History
The fist radio audio transmitter and receiver that was coined the ‘walkie talkie’ was created by Motorola. The group involved created the Motorola SCR-300 using frequency modulation. This first revision was actually backpack mounted. Not long afterward, during World War 2, Motorola produced the ‘Handie Talkie’ which rather confusingly is what we would now recognise as a ‘Walkie Talkie’.

It had massively reduced performance, but was the first completely self contained handheld device.
Nowadays
They are widely used nowadays in both consumer and commercial environments, for example outdoor recreations, business use, military and public safety. As a result of this the prices and quality of the units vary greatly, from kids walkie talkies to rugged digital units for heavy industry use.

As technology has improved, and reduce in size, so have the housings. Normally, you will find the commercial walkie talkies are tougher, in protective cases and limited to a select few frequencies. Consumer versions on the other hand tend to be smaller, more lightweight and capable of scanning across far more channels within the band.

Kids walkie talkies are generally low power units, and as a result are exempt from licence requirements. Though they often look the same as fully featured versions, they are normally relatively low-tech in comparison.

Everything you know about earbuds is wrong   Leave a comment

You’ve probably stumbled upon this looking for information about earphone‘s, hopefully this will help you answer some of those questions, if not please click on one of the relevant links within the article

audioApple earbuds (left), and Etymotic ER-4 in-ear headphones (right).

It’s easy to understand why there’s so much confusion surrounding the differences between earbud and in-ear headphones. The two designs are sometimes referred to interchangeably, but they are two very different types of headphones. Earbuds rest on the outer concha ridge of the ear, located in the center of your outer ear. In-ear or ear-canal headphones are placed inside the ear canal, sealing the listener off from environmental noise.

A few in-ears — like the Etymotic ER-4 — fit deep into the ear canal to provide maximum isolation. Most in-ears are more comfortable “shallow fit” designs that provide less but still substantial noise reduction.

One not-so-obvious advantage of blocking outside noise is that since you don’t have to play music loud enough to overcome the din, you can listen at much lower, safer levels. In-ears’ noise isolation is a purely passive function; it doesn’t require batteries or electronics. In-ears’ isolation is good, but not as effective at hushing the din as the better noise-canceling in-ear or full-size headphones, which always use batteries and electronics. I find that noise-isolating headphones tend to sound better than noise-canceling headphones.

Phiaton PS210 half in-ear headphones.

Some people find the process of inserting in-ear headphones uncomfortable and don’t like being cut off from the environment, so they will probably find earbuds’ less-intrusive fit more comfortable. Earbuds also have another potentially significant advantage over in-ears: They let you hear more sound in your environment. With earbuds, you won’t feel sealed off from your surroundings, and that’s definitely a plus if you’re exercising, riding a bike, or walking on busy streets. I’m referring to the sort of earbuds that come with phones and iPods.

For best sound quality, I prefer in-ear headphones. Finding great-sounding earbuds is next to impossible, but Phiaton’s PS210 “half in-ear” headphone ($159) bridges the gap; it’s literally a hybrid of the two types of designs.
