Tech Review – MoblNRG Lithium Ion Battery

While we certainly enjoyed covering SDCC this year, we’re always battling one thing: our battery life on our smartphones and electronics. This year was no different. Between doing social networking, recording videos and taking pictures it was a chore to keep the smartphones charged.

What’s worse is when you discover you have less then 50% battery and it’s not even the middle of the day.

Luckily for us, a certain booth caught our eyes and came to the rescue, promising  a mobile solution to charging your devices. MoblNRG stepped up and took the SDCC challenge. So how did the MoblNRG lithium ion battery hold up? Did it give us the extra charge we needed to get through SDCC?

Review: The Scar

Posted by: |

Review: The Scar

Imagine a world that’s run on magic and steam. Fill it with a collection of races so different from each other that they might as well be alien species. Then picture a pirate fleet that takes every ship it captures and adds it to the collection of ships already bolted together into a miles-wide floating island.

What you end up with is a city-on-the-sea, one made entirely of steamboats and tall-ships and blockade-runners and pleasure yachts, all of which have been gutted and turned into libraries and markets and workshops and sports arenas, or just scraped down to the waterline and covered in soil to make farms. And around each corner is a woman with a scarab for a head, or a human with pistons instead of legs, or a cactus-man, or a priestess who used to serve as the figurehead for her ship, or any number of other people who were taken prisoner when their ship was pirated and are now trying to make a life for themselves as a citizen of the floating city.

And that’s only the setting. The story quickly moves on to a quest to find a hidden civilization, in order to recruit the one scientist who can track down and capture an impossible underwater creature big enough to pull the floating city to the literal end of the world: a fissure in the ocean (and the planet, and reality) known only as the Scar.

Tech Review – Kinivo BTC450 – Bluetooth Car Kit

Tech Review – Kinivo BTC450 – Bluetooth Car Kit

There are plenty of downsides to owning an older car, usually involving the outdated car stereo. There have been plenty of solutions, my favorite being the Cassette adapter. I feel quite lucky that I have at least an Aux port, but I’ve been in too many cars that have those lovely bluetooth stereos. I’ve contemplated replacing the built in stereo, but those that support Apple Car Play are expensive. There is always that avenue of saving up for a new car, perhaps the affordable Tesla car? What? Don’t take my dreams away.

I’m not the only person that experiences Bluetooth Stereo Envy, and Kinivo has just the solution with the Kinivo BTC450, a Bluetooth Car Kit that plugs in using the Aux Port. I’ve had the chance to drive around using the device, so how does it rank? Is this the ultimate Bluetooth solution?
