Like most guys, I enjoy keeping up with technology and having the latest “toys”. I’m still a student in college and am going into engineering so I’m always curious of the parts that it takes to put my gadgets together. Many people just buy, buy, buy without knowing how their toys are made or the work it takes to make such things. During one of my classes I had a huge project where I had to work with robotics.
I had never worked with robotics and thought it was going to be much more difficult than it actually was. If it wasn’t for ball splines I would have never made it through my project. Ball splines are a special type of linear motion bearing that provides linear friction-less linear motion and also transmits torque. The difference between a shaft and a bushing is that a shaft is free to move up and down and is free to rotate.
I decided to go buy my boyfriend a GPS, because he likes to think he knows where he’s going, but nine times out of ten…he doesn’t. We love to go on road trips and we are out on the road all the time, but it’s always nice to have the extra comfort to check where you think you are going.
I didn’t really know much about the GPS systems, but I got the Garmin GPS and so far we really like it. It’s a touch screen, and it can give you voice to voice directions. We usually turn the sound off though, because after a while it can get annoying. He loves the 3D traffic guide, that can help you steer clear of traffic which is a big bonus, because we do not like traffic at all. It’s amazing at what all these things can do. I’m thinking about getting my mom and dad one too, because they are always traveling the country and it definitely comes in handy.
I got the series ‘How I Met Your Mother’ for my cousin. He loves this show and can watch it all the time. He moved in with a few of his buddies and it is always a good time over there. They love watching this show and can not get enough of it. It’s season 6 of the series and I think he has all the season until now. I’ve only watched a couple episodes, but from what I’ve watched it was really funny!
His parents like to watch it too now, so when I go visit them, my uncle is watching it a lot of the time. I also got him a gift card to Best Buy, because he goes there almost every day it seems like and he is always getting something new. It’s crazy at all the gadgets he has and the technology he has at his apartment. He is a nerd but I love him any way.
This is a great gift for anyone! I also heard they are coming out with a newer model to! I love my iPad 2 and I think I would be lost without it. It’s a16gb and I take it everywhere I go. I am always traveling and it’s a great toy to have while waiting for you plane, or even on the plane. I can read, play games, check my email, or do what ever I can think of on it. I love it and now my kids want one too. They are just like a mini computer and an oversized iPod.
I heard that they are coming out with the iPad 3 around March 16. Which means, that you can either wait for the new one to come out or buy the iPad 2, which I love and have no problems with. If you wait for the third generation to come out, the iPad 2 will probably drop in price too! Yes they are spendy, but I think they are worth it.
If you are running out of space in your home and dont have a place to put your computer stuff at get yourself a Techni Mobili Rolling Computer Desk. With the Techni mobili computer desk you wont take up much space and you will be able to organize the house to the best of yourt abilities.
Don’t worry if you have a small living area this computer desk will be able to fit your needs.
It’s the age of technology so if you dont have a laptop you sure need one. If you are looking for a good deal on a laptop I suggest getting the Toshiba laptop bundle from Best Buy. Get a laptop and a wireless printer plus a mouse and a carry bag for your laptop for less than 350.00 plus tax.
The holidays are coming and keeping in touch with family is a must. The Toshiba laptop has a webcam so you can video chat with family. You can take pictures and print them out on your printer. You will have all you need with this Toshiba bundle.
The 5.25″ bays will hold optical drives, burners, or even (gasp!) your aging floppy drive, and up to six 3.5″ drives can be installed in cages behind the fans, and these can be arranged along the front any way you like. This case provides a plethora of possibilities, and room to explore placement of all the pieces. The PSU, in a departure, is at the bottom of the case, for better case stability and thermal environment for the CPU.
The side window into the case, in addition to letting you show things off, provides additional ventilation, either by way of the vented screen, or by the fourth fan in the box, mounted into clear plastic, for a clear and elegant mounting. This is a sturdy case built of steel, with enough cooling technology to keep things frosty in the hottest action. Take one home today and build yourself the “coolest” rig around!
On those days where you dont feel like sitting at your desk use a Laptop USB Folding Table w/2 Cooling Fan+Mouse Pad. Make yourself comfortable on the couch or on your bed. No longer will you have to strain your back on that aweful computer chair. All you need to do is bring out the laptop folding table and set up shop wherever you feel most comfortable at.
The world is moving wireless, there’s no denying that. More and more, consumers are doing away with wired networking and moving towards WiFi. Printer companies have really taken advantage of this fact and have made a huge selection of WiFi enabled printers. What’s really nice about them is that they’ve really come down in price, and are now pretty much the same price as a regular old USB one. What’s nice about having a wireless printer is that you can easily print to it from any computer in the house without having to mess around with sharing the printer on a computer since it stands alone on your network. Installation is usually a breeze. Also, it’s really nice to be able to scan images and have them sent over WiFi to your computer and be ready for you by the time you sit back down. I recently made the move to a wireless printer and couldn’t be happier with it. Look into it.
