IDAPT i4 Charger can charge the world!

You have heard charger makers state they will charge every device. Some get pretty close and some fall well short of those goals. It looks Like the IDAPT i4 gets high marks for being able to charge everything except electric cars. Based on the plethora of gadgets, phones, hand-held gaming platforms,kazoos,refrigerators and wombats that this thing can charge I wouldn’t put it past being able to charge almost anything short of that. The IDAPT i4 can charge a long list of devices. I don’t have the inclination to list them all but the number currently sits at 4000 devices. No, i did not accidentally forget to proofread this sentence…  the IDAPT i4 will charge a confirmed 4000 devices. Among those devices are the following: The iPhone, iPod, Blackberry, Nintendo DS, PSP, PS3 controller, GPS systems, digital cameras, and Bluetooth products.
The IDAPT i4 features an interchangeable tip system making it completely customizable.  It has 3 charging points and an additional USB charging point, allowing users to charge their electronics without the mess of tangled cords or the need for more than one outlet. MSRP of the IDAPT i4 is set at $60 for a pack of 6 interchangeable tips or $50 for a pack of four tips you can choose yourself.  The IDAPT i4 will be available in August so order one now and get on the list!

Comic-Con loads up list of Exclusive items.

Oh yes people we are in the final countdown to Comic-Con 2010. I bought tickets last year when they went on sale. Tickets were sold out very fast and I have been counting the months and weeks until I could start saying I was counting the days. On Comic-Con’s website at http://www.comic-con.org they now have a list of Exclusive only at Comic-Con 2010 merchandise.  Some things from the list that I think look cool are Star wars bookends for $60

Comic Book Guy #1/Futurama Comics #50, Gears of War Action figures, Signed Autographs and much much more. Even a Domo  only found at Comic -Con

Crackdown 2 will be coming July 7 and I cant wait!

I have been playing the Demo of Crackdown 2 for a while now and I am just as hooked on this game as I was with the original Crackdown. Crackdown 2 seems to bring all the same fun but in a bigger and in some cases cooler package. The fact you will be able to do a four person coop mode is a beautiful thing for sure. The environments are bigger and the things you can do are bigger and badder too. The cool things I have seen from the demo was that you can do a coop mission, sighting the target is spot on and any in demo achievements you accomplish will be transferred to the real game  once you purchase it.  I was addicted to crackdown the first time and Crackdown 2 looks to be just the same fix I have been waiting for. Crackdown 2 will be available July 7th.

Boxee Box is Coming!

Boxee BoxOh yes. if you are at all familiar with streaming media over the network from Hulu or Netflix you are gonna love this. Up until now Boxee.tv had just a small download that turned your PC or Mac or even Apple TV into a streamin media magnet. But in Quarter 2 of 2010 Boxee will be unveiling the Boxee Box the single most coolest hardware device since the Roku was made available to the masses a few years ago. I loved my Roku and i still have it and use it today. Boxee box seems to take it to the next level though. Here are the basic specs:

  • HDMI
  • Optical Audio
  • RCA Stereo Audio
  • WiFi (802.11n)
  • Ethernet
  • 2 USB Ports
  • SD Card Slot
  • RF Remote
  • QWERTY Keyboard

The remote with the QWERTY keyboard built in really is cool and the design of the Boxee Box is slick as well. If I can get my hands on a demo model for review I will definitely let you all know what I think. Until that happens we all have to wait for a few more months before we can buy one. No price as far as I can see has been decided on for the Boxee Box. I sure hope its as affordable as it is awesome looking.

TheIndie.biz Launches Frindie, A Social Music Application for everyone

theindie.biz FrindieTheIndie.biz Launched a new Social media experience that will allow you to enhance your music listening by finding out what their friends on major social media networks are listening to or buying to listen to. Facebook,Google,Myspace and Twitter are all covered a well as Yahoo, Bebo and Friendfeed.  The Frindie application is a tool that hooks into these social media avenues and will allow with just one click of a button the ability to view how many and of which of their friends listened to, bought, shared etc.. a particular song.  This spin on this one is that its not a bunch of strangers telling you what they like this is your friends that are letting you into the inside scoop on their listening habits, likes and dislikes.  The cool thing with Frindie is that it allows bands as well as fans to fully maximize the social networking experience. This tool will help people find new and interesting music to listen to. What better way to find music you will like and the likelihood of music you will like if you are getting those listening recommendations from your own circle of friends? I would say you are looking at a definitely cool new tool for finding and expanding your current music likes.  On top of all this sharing Frindie will also let you search for music based on the standard Categories and Groups  as well. Maybe, you will even make some new musical friends along the way and that is never a bad thing. To quote the Sirius Cybernetics Corporation “Share and Enjoy!”.

TatMash.com Allows you to try out the Tat before you buy the ink.

tatmash.comSo, here is an interesting concept.  You think to yourself, man I wish I had a cool Tattoo but what shoudl I get? and If I do choose that  twelve in tall papa Smurf on my chest, what will it really look like? Well, now you can get the ink with no remorse and no retribution from friends by heading over to Tatmash.com. Tatmash.com now has an online tool that will allow you to pick a spot that you would like to have a tattoo on and then choose from a multitude of designs to apply to the area.  All this can be done with no needles no ink and a lot less alcohol, ok well you can still have the alcohol but in the end when you wake up the next day instead of a regret you will have a cool picture of you sporting a tattoo that you luckily didn’t get.  For the rest of you TatMash.com is a great way to plan ahead for your next design. figure out if things look good before you go to the artist and even print out your thoughts to take with you to the shop. All in all its a very cool idea and definitely made me ask “Why didn’t I think of that?!?”. So check out Tatmash.com and give yourself and your loved ones some ink!.

Introspective on the IPad!

hhgttg Ipad

I go into detail on the IPad and my thoughts on the release day as well as make a startling discovery about myself. Listen in on my own internal debate. How Close is the Ipad to Douglas Adams “Hitchhikers Guide” and more.

WordPress 3.0 Beta

I blogged about the WordPress 3.0 Beta release a day ago and now I talk about the pros and Cons of the WordPress Multi User addition and compare it to Dot Net Nuke (DNN). Full URL to Post here: http://geektechlive.com/2010/04/wordpress-3-0-beta-released/

Easy Way to preiew an IPhone and soon Ipad App.

I you are like me you scrutinize every Iphone purchase since those 99 cent charges can add up. Well, now you can have someone else spend their money and tell you what the app REALLY does before you buy it.  My Blog Article at geektechlive.com tells you all the nitty gritty as well as the link to http://iphoneappdemos.tv/

Make mine Marvel Ipad?Maybe Not.

Every since Marvel was bought out by Disney I have been keeping my eye on them before they turn into the Multiheaded Hydra that is Disney. I assume it starts with some sort of Bite like a Vampire then Disneys Fangs slowly drain the life force from their intended victims replacing it with unicorns and rainbows and incessant looping music on how its a very small world after all.

OK, Initial speculation by me in a blog post, on the IPad having Marvel Comics on it may have been a bit too soon. I dive back into the dark recesses of my brain to talk about the evolution of the Comic and how the IPad could kill off Comic books… the real tangible paper comics that I know and love and collect.

OK, that is all everyone. Have a happy Week and I will see you soon. Catch me on Twitter @Geektechlive or Facebook!
