What is HDMI and What is DHCP?

LOL, I got these 2 questions from one of my Laptop Blog readers:

“What is HDMI”

“What is DHCP?”

Well, since I am a nice guy, I figured I’d helping in my simple language but here’s my definition of them for all of you readers who don’t know:

“What is HDMI”

HDMI is the adaptor that lets you connect your laptop/computer to an HD LCD TV digitally, about 100 times better quality than something like SVIDEO.   Plus, you can also transfer audio through the same cable so you don’t need 3 cables like back in the

What is Sonic Boom?

Today, I was just surfing around the web and found “Sonic Boom”!

What is it?

It’s when the aircraft goes faster than the speed of sound and creates water vapors basically or according to Wikipedia:

When an object passes through the air, it creates a series of pressure waves in front of it and behind it, similar to the bow and stern waves created by a boat. These waves travel at the speed of sound, and as the speed of the object increases, the waves are forced together, or compressed

Eco DIY – How to Make Fruit Bowl with Bamboo!

Bamboo has been undeniably the most eco-friendly choice for wooden products today.  According to Wikipedia, bamboo is the “fastest” growing wooden plant in the world today.

If you are luck enough to live in the parts o

AT&T BlackBerry Bold Review – Don’t Buy It!

As many of you readers know, I only post things that I can backup on this blog and to say the least, don’t buy the AT&T Blackberry Bold because I tried it last night and it’s as slow as your 3G iPhone.

It was my friend’s birthday in downtown San Francisco, (I also did test the 3G iPhone along with the Blackberry Bold) and had the chance to use his new AT&T Blackberry Bold.

Well, the benchmark was of course with my Sprint Blackberry 8830.  Aside from mobile internet speed issues, the Blackberry Bold proved to be bul

video://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKUKQ7QqOHw

Here’s a cool wireless E-book from Amazon, the Amazon Kindle.  The Amazon Kindle allows you to access the Amazon store via its EDVO connection (meaning you don’t have to connect to WiFi) and buy books that will get downloaded to your Kindle.

I think you can say this new Kindle is more like the iPod for books.  Of course, I really like it except the fact that the Kindle is still in black and white.  But if you are a book-fanatic and you have thousands of books in collection, you might want to consider this E-book that c

Stealth Pennycam is pretty amazing in that it can capture video but it isn’t stealth anymore if we know about it… Well, I guess it can work for petty thieves who don’t use the internet anyways.

The PennyCam is concealed within a Take-A-Penny, Leave-A-Penny tray, and connects to a DVR using a standard BNC http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BNC cable, which can be run underneath the counter. The USD$199 unit is powered by a 12vdc adapter, and delivers 500×582 p
