Tech Support?

Time to exit, stage left…

I have had an incredible time writing these blogs over the last couple of years. While I have never actually managed to get a good schedule down for writing them on a consistent basis, I always enjoyed getting some time set aside to do so. So it is with a heavy heart that I inform the regular readers of the TechTalk blog that as of now, there will be no longer be any updates to it for the foreseeable future. We will leave the page up though, for anyone who still has lingering questions about any of the “How-To” articles we have written, or just want to watch one of our videos again. So thank you all very much for just reading my (and my colleagues’) articles, it has been a pleasure.

Black Friday Crowd

That guy way in the back? He was just looking for some diapers for his kid late at night. He picked the wrong night to run out...

I have been watching, listening, and reading all of the great after Thanksgiving sales that will be going on in the consumer electronics market. I have seen numerous amazingly priced items, too good to pass up, and yet I look at them with a cynical, cautious eye.

Tech Used daily by one employee

These items are carried by one TechHub employee on a daily basis. What is not shown though? The camera used to take this photo...

I have been in the technology business for over 20 years now and as my hair has grayed, and I have become less tolerant to change, I realize I am not a great supporter of this “tech” age. With devices such as Kindles, iPhones, iPads, and Android based smartphones; I have yet to find something that makes me say my life will be simplified with these devices.

Big Sound, Tiny Package

Big Sound, Tiny Package

Recently our store acquired some new product, and one of those items was CP audio’s CHILL PILL. At first, this came across as another little gimmick item that would not live up to its reported abilities, but I could not have been more wrong.

Skullcandy Titans

I have been a proponent of Skullcandy equipment for a few years now. I  believe for the price and the great warranty (limited lifetime) they offer the best product for a reasonable price.

Well the announcement has happened today. Apple has officially announced its new product, the Apple iPad. Other than a horribly named product, this new device is really an enlarged iPod Touch. Wow Apple, that was it, a decade of speculation, of feverous anticipation, you give us a “roid” induced iTouch.

Could this be the new thing from Apple Inc.?

 

Many speculators have been pointing to a new touch driven laptop from Apple to be the latest thing to come out of the Cupertino, California campus. But is it true? Like most rumors about Apple product announcements, this one again is being confirmed by an insider who wishes to stay anonymous.

Well it has been awhile since I have ranted about something, so I thought today was as good a day as any other to post my opinion. I know that opinions are subjective to the person, who expresses them, but with experience these opinions have some validity to stand on their own, my case in point has to deal with technology and consumer electronics.

I have been an avid iPod user for about 4 years, and for 4 years I have witnessed the untimely deaths of my Apple earbuds. These neatly packed, white headphones Apple supplies with every iPOD it sells are fine for use for the first week. Then you need to go out and replace them, because you played your Metallica louder than 1/3 the volume bar on the iPod. To replace the Apple headphones with the same thing you will need to drop $29 for a headphone that gives you now both volume control and a mic. These are both great features that are great to have, yet it is still the sound quality and durability that is lacking.
