Twinhead Durabook D14RY rugged laptop reviewed


There aren't many competitors in the semi-rugged notebook market, and Panasonic's Toughbook is other other major brand that comes to mind. While we love the looks and lightness of the "business-rugged" Toughbooks, their semi-rugged machines aren't as attractive as the Durabook and they lack the computing power of the Durabook (as of this writing, the semi-rugged Toughbooks still have the original Core Duo rather than the Core 2 Duo CPU). The D14RY is an all around strong package not only in terms of ruggedness but in features and performance.

kwikSynCh Dual USB Charger

Kwik Usb

Yes, only 2 devices can be charged at once with the kwickSynch, but I also have a 120V-to-USB adapter (and the mTips work with any USB source), so I can do three at once. In a pinch, I connect the fastest-charging device (or least drained) as soon as I get to the hotel at night and switch last minute before I go to sleep. Even if I don't end up with all items fully charged, I'm still usually OK until my next meeting -- and I find that the colorful cable hanging off my USB port also makes a great conversation starter.

Three gaming keypads go head to head

Saitek Flexiglow Egromedia

Today we're featuring three new gaming keypads competing to take up that empty space to the left (or right) of your existing keyboard. First there's the updated Flexiglow Cyber Snipa, designed exclusively for FPS gaming with its creative layout of gaming keys. Next there's the Saitek Pro Gamer Command Unit that's capable of handling tasks in FPS and RTS gaming. And last, there's the Genius ErgoMedia 500, a spitting image of one of our recommended gaming keypads: the Nostromo N52.

How will these gaming keypads fair against each other? And, how do they match up against our favorite gaming keypads: the WolfKing Warrior and Ideazon Fang? Because it's been a while since we reviewed these older game pads, we'll be grading the three in this roundup on a tougher scale to keep up with today's crop of demanding games.

80GB PlayStation 3 coming soon ... to Korea

Ps3 And Controller

Strangely the company denies having any plans to ship the (slightly) enlarged PS3 to any other territories even though sources report it has already been presented for FCC filing. Does any of this mean anything? Well, it means Sony is keen to protect its market presence in the Far East since the launch of the 120GB Xbox 360 Elite but little more. After all PS3 hard drives can be easily swapped out for any standard 2.5 incher. So can we expect any other hardware modifications in these beasties? Nope.

Ink-less all-metal pen


There is no ink, yet this pen will write on virtually any type of paper! Its solid metal 'nib' consists of a metal alloy, that leaves a mark on most types of paper. If you use the sort of paper typically used in printers and photocopiers, the pen leaves a mark that looks as if it was made by a pencil. However the line will not smudge, and cannot be rubbed out.
