The site is coming along nicely now. Still some nooks and crannies needing work. Rest assured I am on top of it. I want to make 2010 the year of the geek and I need your help!

As a teaser. Next episode I will be devoting to an indepth review of this wonderful device from vtech. The 9181 Wi-fi internet radio.
I also have in the works a review of the mozy cloud backup service.
Once the final touches are done on GeekTechLive.com I will also be doing an interview of the co-creator of the theme I am using called headway. You can read up on them at their website headwaythemes.com. Best 80 bucks I have spent in a while for ease of use web app design tool.

Geek Tech Live ep 49 Magic mouse review and Liquid image and WordPress theme Headway

Happy New Year 2010!!

I am taking this year to bring us back to the old way of doing things. I got a bit over zealous with my Foley artistry lately and realized you arent listening for the foley ( I hope) but for my information I bring.

That being said: I am trying this episode with no background music or intro music. tell me what you think at info@geektechlive.com or leave a comment on my blog at geektechlive.com

The Magic Mouse review I agve it 5/10 … 8/10 for style.. several million points negative for usability.

Dont get me wrong it works fine.. I just find that the mouse “being a trackpad” occasionally will start scrolling my browser screen all over the place. .. listen to my full rant in the podcast

Next I cover some cool gadget for skiers, boarders and even scuba and swimmers! coming in Summer of 2010! Liquid Image will be unveiling the summit searier snow goggles! Huzzah!

quoting the press release:

The Liquid Image Summit Series is the world’s first snow goggle with an
integrated digital camera. The goggle contains a wide angle lens to
capture all the action while skiing, boarding, sledding or
snowmobiling. The hands free unit has a 5.0 MP (2560 x 1920) camera
mode and a video mode that records D1 video (720×480) at a rate up to
30 frames per second with audio.

The Summit Series Snow Camera Goggle is easy to operate. There is a
button for On/Off/Mode and another button for the shutter. To record a
photo or a video, simply turn on the camera, choose the mode, then
press the shutter button. LED lights inside the goggle indicate the
mode to the user. Large side buttons along the right side of the frame
allow for greater dexterity while wearing gloves.

Liquid Image Summit Series 335 Snow Camera Goggle
The internal memory has 16 MB NAND Flash. The memory is easily expanded
to record thousands of photos or hours of videos by adding a Micro
SD/SDHC Card up to 16 GB. Files may be downloaded to a computer through
the High Speed USB cable
provided, or through a Micro SD/SDHC card.

The Camera operates on an internal rechargeable Lithium Battery
. Estimated battery performance is 2200 still images or 2:20 hrs of video.

The Summit Series Snow Camera Goggle model 335 is estimated to ship
late summer 2010, in time for the Winter Ski Season and for Holiday
shopping. This new model follows the concept of the original Liquid
Image Underwater Digital Camera Mask by creating an easier way to
record photos and videos. The concept of integrating the camera into
the sports equipment allows the user to travel with fewer items and to
keep their hands free while performing sports activities. The
integrated camera records a view similar to what is seen, allowing the
user to share their experience with other people, and to enjoy their
activities to a greater extent because they concentrate less on holding
and operating the camera.

The Summit Series Snow Camera Goggle model number 335 has an estimated
US price of $149.00. Specifications and pricing are estimated at this
time.

Liquid Image Co, LLC, is a manufacturer of cameras, electronics
, toys and games that target sports and outdoor activities with an
emphasis on Sport Technology and POV Cameras. The corporate office is
located in Sacramento, CA, with an international office located in Hong
Kong.

Next I talk about a wordpress theme I am trying out from headwaythemes.com

I am currently using it on geektechlive.com.. check it out and let me know what you think!  I realy am slowly liking this theme and its visual editor. if you are familiar with dot net nuke at all you will get the feel of the “leafs” that this theme allows you to manipulate.  its mostly drag and drop and I only had one small hiccup in the beginning but after that its all working fine.

Once GeekTechlive.com is all done I will do a full review of the theme and my impressions as well.

Once again… please follow me on Twitter! be my friend on Facebook, write me an email or just post a comment! I am nothing without you loyal listeners!

Coming up in episode 50 and 51 I will be getting my paws on a Vtech IS9181 wifi radio and also reviewing Mozy backup service.

Happy 2010!!!

Chris
