Newnex USB 3.0 Repeater Cable Hands-on Review!

I had the pleasure of talking to the President of Newnex, Dr. Sam Liu at CES 2010 (Thank you btw for the interview.), who was demonstrating the world’s very first USB 3.0 repeater cable that can extend the standard maximum length of USB 3.0 of 3 meters to 12 meters.

Palm Pre USB Cable!

I just lost my Palm Pre USB cable and ended up spending $100 that I didn’t need to.  I guess the retail stores STILL don’t sell the Palm Pre USB cables, what a bummer.

Peek Email Device Dissected!

Remember the Peek E-mail device that’s going to replace your Blackberry?  Well, here’s a reader who decided to see what’s “inside”.

Looks really well made – I was impressed by the aluminum backbone that supports the keyboard and the screen. The insides are very simple – just a few highly integrated chips. I haven’t hooked up the micro USB cable yet… I’m sure someone will beat me to it!

CheckTap is a “Programmable” Power Tap Device!

This is one of those gadgets, “why didn’t they think of this before?”.  The power tap device called CheckTap can be programmed via your PC through a USB cable to control and also schedule which and when your devices are on/off.

This gadget supposedly could save your home/office a whole lotta electricity, so long as you can “program” it.  I do assume that most people will be able to program this thing but do have my doubts that over 50% of population will probably be stuck trying to

Blackberry 9000 rumored to come in cheaper and w/o 3G

Blackberry 9000 is rumored to come in cheaper form and without 3G.  As a user of the latest 8830, “Are u kidding me?”

Without high speed data, it will make the Blackberry useless, especially for people like me who can use it as a broadband modem simply by connecting a USB cable.

So you know how we’ve been talking about the BlackBerry 9000’s ridiculously high selling price? Well, it looks like RIM is gearing up to launch a 3G-less BlackBerry 9000 so to speak. It looks pretty similar but there are also a few changes to the des
