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.

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.

Starting first, John is going to take a look at the SkullCandy Titans headphones and that review should be posted later today. After that, I will be looking at the Ink’d, Lowriders and 50/50 headphones later in the week. So stay tuned!

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.
