Sennheiser – HD700 Headphones – CES 2012

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSNick from F5 talked with Eric Palonen from Sennheiser to talk about some new products. The HD700 brings a brand new sound. This has a wide soundstage, because the transducers come in at an angle. The HD700 also has a ventilated magnet system. This channels air pressure so you don’t get turbulence in your ears. That means the headphones will not create any type of air flow obstruction, so the speakers can work more freely to give you the best quality sound. End result is crystal clear, unadulterated sound. Finally, the HD700 has a Vibration damping frame. It will reduce the vibration from one transducer to another. Pure sound all the way through. Get the Sennheiser HD 700 Headphone at Amazon This is for critical listening – audiophiles and recording agents. Anyone that is looking for those subtle nuances to create their wall of sound.

ClarityOne: Improving Sound by Repelling EM Interference Fields – CES 2012

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSDean Kurnell joins the TPN CES Live coverage with ClarityOne Audio. They were on the show last year talking about their technology. Now, they are ready to bring this set of earphones to market. Any audiophile will tell you that Electro-Magnetic (EM) Interference occurs, which causes speakers to counter-respond. That means you might not get the best sound from a speaker, simply because it’s too close to another electronic device. ClarityOne simply makes an opposing EM field to counter. Not cancel out, but neutralize the incoming EM field. The end result is the speaker can work naturally to deliver quality sound. Some have even said they hear more sound in the music so they can enjoy what is being performed. ClarityOne Audio headphones will be out in the next month. It is priced starting at $109, but for something that adds this much quality, it will...

Cellcontrol Blocks texting when Vehicle is Moving

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSChuck Cox joins Todd on the TPN Live CES coverage. They talk about Cellcontrol – a company that blocks texting while driving, but uses the vehicle to block. By putting a blocker in the car rather than on the phone, Cellcontrol can offer blocking using the vehicle. You are more likely to be in an accident when texting – driving. But you can limit what they can do. Cellcontrol blocks texts and applications like facebook and more. The end result – communicating with important contacts – 911, a dispacher or a single person. By putting Cellcontrol into Fleet vehicles, they have seen a 66% reduce in accidents. Even insurance companies have been seeing what companies like Cellcontrol does.

Aluminum Machined iPhone Cases from Wicked Metal Jacket

Normally I wouldn’t report about iPhone cases, but when there is a case that makes the phone heavier with a price that is $49, but the end result is cool, then I have to stop and get an interview. The company is Wicked Metal Jacket. They make iPhone (and soon iPad) cases in aircraft quality Aluminum bar stock. The company then cuts a design, from hearts to flames, in the stock. Add anodized colors and you have a case that will get looks. Wicked Metal Jacket makes quality aftermarket parts for Harley Davidson motorcycles. They do add a level of strength to the device while giving that cool look some people desire. The end result is a new type of case for the iPhone.

Fireworks Through iPhone – 1 Photo at a Time

Over the weekend the band played a local festival in central WI. At 10PM, they had a fireworks show. I did like anyone else – pulled out my iPhone and tried to take a photo. However, with the new shutter speed of the OS4, I realized I could take a few pictures in a couple seconds. So I kept hitting the shutter button. The end result was 374 pictures recreating the fireworks. It worked so well, there are points where you can see the firework climb in the sky and explode. It was an amazing display.

Ramblings – 8-01-2009 – Podcast Patent What?

You can Patent Podcasting? It was an interesting week. The one thing that just seemed to be the strangest is that a company called VoloMedia decided to put a patent on Podcasting. While we’re all still trying to wrap our heads around it, I can see how this can happen. I remember years ago I heard of patent cases all around of people who didn’t really invent something clean up because there was no document on it. Of course, the more famous story goes to the girl who invented that clip to store your sunglasses on your car’s visor. The story goes she used Bobby-pins to invent the clip. Someone else saw the idea and made an adjustment, then patented it for their own. The end result is that girl lost out on millions of $$ Yeah, this is not no visor clip and we are no little...

Installing Windows 7 on Ubuntu 9.04 – TVazine

VPC and VMWare are two great programs that allow me to do a lot. Windows, Linux and in some cases, Mac (although there are still legal issues with that). VPC is great because then you can have your computer loaded up with more than one Operating system and be able to get work done. I have installed Ubuntu on my Windows machines, but when I heard that Windows 7 will have a VPC-XP feature; I thought to myself – “Can XP be run in a Virtual environment within Ubuntu?” Then I thought even more – “Can Windows 7 run in an Ubuntu environment?” My question got answered quickly – Even better is that it was a program that worked similar to VPC. VirtualBox OSE is a Virtual PC program that works in the x86 environment. It is a program developed by Sun and can be installed in Windows,...

When Ubuntu Users Go Rogue: One Woman’s Story of Predjudice. 1

When Ubuntu Users Go Rogue: One Woman’s Story of Predjudice.

The original article on the station:WKOW – ‘Woman blames Dell for missing online classes’. Maybe an antagonizing title as it brought many Dell and Ubuntu users online to blast the TV station and the woman. And why did Ubuntu users do this? Well – this person wanted Windows instead of Ubuntu. The story starts out where the Abbie wanted a laptop for her studies. She bought one from Dell for $1100. The machine came loaded with Ubuntu – which Abbie hadn’t heard about until that point. When she called Dell, they told her that Ubuntu is a great OS and will work well for her. For Abbie, she is not in tune with the computer world as much as a lot of other people are. And rightfully so – I don’t normally rebuild cars, so I don’t know what parts I should use – I don’t build houses,...

Todd Cochrane is heading to Japan, so he’s putting up as much video he can. Therefore, I’ve been putting up all the videos. Add in the Backchannel posts and I’ve doubled the amount of articles on Geekazine for the next few weeks. Nonetheless, I am willing to sacrifice the time to get these videos up. I also started getting back into the swing of things. Bitstrips, Quickcasts and the Podcast. Of course, there was no LIVE Show on Monday due to a very special day of mine.

Spam Bust Brings Spam Down – Is That A Good Thing?

No, I am not an advocate of Spam. I am an advocate of controlled email. If you ask for it, you should get it, but it doesn’t mean you should get your email shared for so called “3rd party” affiliates. For if they are no longer and affiliate, do they still have your email address? Last week McColo, a webserver known for trafficking of Spam, was taken down. The result was an instant drop of unsolicited email. IronPort – An E-mail security firm, said the problematic email dropped from 153 billion messages to 64 billion: A drop of over 60%. Other sites also reported a down spike in messaging. But is that a good thing?
