Griffin has unveiled a new device for musicians that is pretty cool. It’s called the GuitarConnect Pro and allows the connection of an electric guitar, bass or other musical instrument with a 1/4-inch plug to connect to your iPad or iPhone.
Here’s another one of those “Why didn’t I think of this?” ideas. Luca Mainini, Manuel Marino and Davide di Malta of Dev Design 2.0 had a multo buona idea: emulate the coiled form of telephone cords to make a charge and sync cable for iOS devices.
I have been using an iPhone since they first came out. I recently moved to an Android smartphone to see how the other half live. So far the thing that irritates me the most is that I didn’t think about all the gadgets that my iPhone was designed to work with that I have around the house.
Apple’s laptops are slim and sexy, but their svelte figures come at a price, and I’m not just talking about how much they cost. Not only do they have too few USB ports – all of Apple’s laptops only have two USB ports, except for the 17″ MacBook Pro, which has three – the ports are also placed very near to each other, making it very easy to block one while using the other.
Nothing annoys me more than the sight of cables and wires in disarray.
I have a lot of those plastic wires to hold the cables together in a bunch. While these don’t really make things look better, it does make everything more organized and orderly.
No, this isn’t a new toy for your feline friend, it’s a concept charger for your phone and/or other devices. While it makes sense to have something that’s longer than standards cords, I wonder if cats everywhere will rejoice upon seeing this charger that’s designed to look like a ball of yarn.
Network’s down again? The new hire still doesn’t have his username and password? Facebook (not) blocked? Kwa-pish! Pay the folks at the IT department – or your household’s resident computer nerd – a visit and show them you mean business with feralswirl’s Cat5 O’ Nine Tails, a flogger made out of Ethernet cables.
Hello geeks, look at your fruits, now look at this banana, now back to your fruits, now back to this banana. Sadly, your fruits are not USB-compatible, but if you get the USB-It Stick-On Cable, you can make your fruits and pretty much anything else a lot geekier.
This new adapter from Thanko lets users output video from an iPad, iPhone 4 or 4th gen iPod Touch to any HDMI-equipped display (via an HDMI cable of course) without fear of running out of juice, as long as you have a spare powered USB port nearby.
Where is that stupid charging cable? Last spring, Scosche released a cool USB charging cable that folded up into a keychain fob (much like the one you might have for your car). It was a pretty cool design that ensured that you had a charging cable almost anywhere.
Any computer user eventually needs a USB hub for one reason or another. It might be that your machine only had a few USB ports and you are out, or you may just need to get some ports further from your computer and a hub and long cable works well for that.
I’m a messy person. If you ask me to install your home theater, I will do it. I won’t like it though and I will leave a tangled mess of cables behind your entertainment center to remind you every time you look back there to hire someone next time.
I use an iPhone, but I am not a huge fan of Apple’s computers. I prefer Windows, but I will admit to being jealous of the cool MagSafe connector that MacBooks have. I have snagged my deckchair on the cord to my notebook before and ripped the thing off the desk damaging it in the process, so I can appreciate a breakaway cable.
There are a lot of folks out there who have an iPad or iPhone that like to stream content with from various sources like YouTube, Netflix, their video camera or their media library. The catch is that it can be a hassle getting that video onto a larger screen for viewing.
This Japanese supercomputer is supposed to be one of the most environmentally-friendly supercomputer arrays available. But is it just me, or is this the ultimate in cable management problems?
This supercomputer system is called the Grape-DR and is composed of 64 pairs of Intel’s Core i7-920 processors and a board mounted with 4 Grape-DR accelerator chips.
This year a company called ShambroWest Corporation launched the “first-ever worldwide cable television network,” called GenosTV, which is a broadband-based service that will supposedly feature “cable, network and other media content from every geography and in every language across the world.”
