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.

The SkullCandy Pipe

One of the more popular items for students on college campuses is a good set of speakers for their iPod or iPhone. Products like the iHome or a set of Logitech speakers can run anywhere from $75-$200 depending on the style and the features and can take up a good amount of space on your desk or night stand. The Skullcandy Pipe is an alternative in both price and space, running customers $59.99 and taking up no more space than a flashlight.

The Acer Aspire One D250

With the increasing appeal of portability in computers, the Netbook’s popularity has exploded on college campuses. “Netbook” has become the term used to describe small and portable computers that rely heavily on internet use and require little processing power. Most range in size from 8”-12” and lack CD-ROM drives to keep them light weight. While the TechHUB can order a variety of Netbooks, our best seller, and this month’s Cheaper Alternative, is the Acer Aspire One D250.
