Being able to communicate effectively with your team can mean the difference between life and death. This is true in life…and this is especially true in the online arena. Being able to tell someone to get out of the fire or telling the tank that you pulled aggro on the boss (which can happen occasionally as a hunter) can mean a success instead of a wipe. (In case you can’t tell, the game I am talking about is World of Warcraft.) In the old days, I would have had to type everything in “raid chat”, hoping that the person it was directed to would see it, and on top of that, it would take precious seconds to even type my message/warning in the first place. Well, I now live a world that includes Ventrilo and the Logitech G330 Gaming Headset. Check out my take on this headset after the break.

You have questions, we have answers!

You have questions, we have answers!

Hey everyone! Sorry for the lack of updates recently, it has been really busy at the TechHub! Which is great because all the incoming freshmen need to get their tech questions answered somewhere, and where better to go for those answers than the TechHub? So I am going to take some of these questions and answer them right here (and make this a continuing segment on the TechTalk blog).

SkullCandy 50/50 Earbuds

The quality of the SkullCandy 50/50 earbuds can be summed up in three letters, w-o-w. These are an incredible set of earbuds especially considering the price (only $39.99 through the TechHub). Out of the headphones I have tested, Knights of Cydonia has never sounded as good as it did when I listened to it with these earbuds.

SkullCandy Lowrider Headphones

While SkullCandy Ink’d are definitely a decent pair of earbuds, they are just that…earbuds. You have to place them in your ear canal, and no matter what you do, you always run the risk of them slipping out of your ears. This is a problem that really occurs when you are exercising or working outdoors. So when looking for a solution, look no further than the SkullCandy Lowrider.

The great SkullCandy vs Apple earbuds debate is one that will continue to rage on for a long time to come. If I were to throw my two cents out there, while Apple has a fine product, SkullCandy beats the Apple earbuds like a piñata. Sure, the included Apple headphones are indeed free, but there are several reasons you should spend a couple of extra bucks for the SkullCandy Ink’d ones.

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.

The Holidays at the TechHub

The Holidays at the TechHub

Finals are over and the stress of school is gone for a few weeks. Now is the time to pack up and head home during this period to visit the family for the holidays. That’s when it hits you, “I never did any holiday shopping. What am I going to do?” And let’s face it, as a college student you probably don’t have much disposable income lying around to purchase these gifts with. So why don’t you just head over to the UC Davis Bookstore TechHub and put those gifts on your student account. And while you are there, pick something up for yourself and tell the folks it was a book you needed for class…

Following that, we show some highlights from our SkullCandy event we held in the store, where people traded in their old headphones for a free pair of SkullCandy ones. But stay tuned, because after that we show you how to take a screenshot on your Mac and Windows PCs.

The SkullCandy Pipe

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.
