Factory Unlocked Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Phablet for $350 Off

Yes, I know that you can head on over to your wireless provider of choice and get a new smartphone for a reduced price when you sign on with a contract, but that’s just not suitable for some people. Some people prefer to have their phones unsubsidized and out of contractual obligations, so if you want a unlocked Galaxy Note II, this is the deal for you.

Many school systems across the globe have made switches to tablets and e-readers. Having a digital solution like this means kids don’t have to carry heavy backpacks full of books, which can lead to back issues in the long run. It also can save the educational system money since the e-books are generally cheaper than text copies, of course you also have to pay the huge cost of the tablet/e-reader initially.

Toshiba’s 13-Inch Excite Tablet Is Not That Exciting

Toshiba’s Thrive tablets were certainly not crowd favorites, and the company, after listening to customer complaints, has introduced a new line of tablets in the Excite line. It’s a good thing that they are changing their designs and bringing out pretty looking devices: the 7.7″ tablet which has the same AMOLED display on the Galaxy Tab 7.7 and the 10″ Excite with a resolution of 1280 x 800. But why in the world have they decided to include an unnecessarily large 13″ model in the list?

Slingshot: The Universal Smartphone Stabilizer

I had started working on a smartphone stabilizer for my iPhone 4 about 9 months ago now.  I purchased all kinds of mini tripods, accessories, and some carbon fiber parts from the local RC shop.  It was a pretty sad attempt at macgyvering something, and I wasn’t satisfied with the results, so I just shelved it and thought that someone else will eventually create something.  Today, it has nearly come to reality.

Samsung Galaxy Note Smablet Review

The Samsung Galaxy Note, oh what a debate this 5.3-inch Android smablet (smartphone-tablet) has created. Some haters hate it, because, well, they love to hate things. And others love it, mainly because of its beautiful bright display. I’m going to address a few things with this review because in all honesty, we need to evolve the way we use “smart” devices. And there are a lot of underlying issues that people just don’t talk about, or have a clue about. If we’re not using these devices with any sense, then we’re not really going to have the best experience in the long term.
