7 Inch $50 Tablet Throwdown: Amazon Fire, RCA Voyager, ProScan 7

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSGood tablets are getting more affordable and very useful. Amazon launched the Fire 7 inch tablet in their line of Fire products. While a great tablet, I had to wonder how this stacked up to other $50 7 inch tablets. Therefore I found two tablets you might see during your holiday shopping. The RCA Voyager tablet from Walmart and the ProScan tablet which you can find in many different stores. Keep in mind these are not HD resolution tablets and will show slower results than a Fire HD or iPad Air. Nonetheless, these affordable tablets could become second tablets for some and replace laptops for others. Amazon Fire 7 Inch Tablet The Fire 7 inch has a screen resolution of 1024×600 (also known as WSVGA). The Fire is a Quad-Core ARM Cortex A7 processor at 1.3 GHz, and a Mali-450 GPU....

Aria Hotel Room Video Walkthrough: Las Vegas, NV

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSThis last trip to Las Vegas brought me to the Aria Hotel and Convention Center. I stayed in the Deluxe room, a 520 sq. foot room with King bed. The hotel opened in 2009 with 4004 guest rooms and 568 suites. The casino brings over 150,000 square feet of games and includes a 24-table Poker room and high-limit room. The view of the 24th floor was amazing, even though it wasn’t strip-side. I was able to not only get to the convention center pretty easy, I could also access the spa and pools without having to go through the smokey Casino. There is even a “Game Room” which features XBox and PS4 gaming for $12/hour. Aria Hotel Guest Room The Deluxe guest room itself was a little worn. My privacy (do not disturb) button did not work, which they had maintenance come...

D-Link Powerline AV2 2000 Gigabit Adapter

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSI own and have used the D-Link powerline DHP series in the past. My DHP 302 has been a life saver when I needed to run an Ethernet cable but couldn’t punch through a wall to do it. The newest D-Link Powerline adapter is the AV2 2000. This can send around 2 GB of data through your electrical wiring to places where Ethernet and WiFi can’t. It’s perfect for when you want to hard wire your Fire TV, XBox or PS4, or even plug it into a switch so you can connect all your devices. Some new additions to the AV2 2000 include MIMO – Multiple Input, Multiple Output. Think of it like the data splitting up and the smaller pieces take the path of least resistance to get to the destination point without any bottlenecking happening. Get the Powerline AV2...
