    By Victor Oshiro | Posted October 26, 2014 at 11:29AM
    Often when dealing with networking products we look at small office solutions or home networking needs. What if you need to network a medium to large office or an educational environment? What if your business is a call center or other data heavy environment? That's a lot of computers, cabling,...

    We just got information for this product. Normally I don't post news based on an email message but a 4WD wheelchair is something that allows people off paths and that's just too cool to pass up. See more at http://whill.us

    MXR Custom Badass '78 Distortion

    By Victor Oshiro | Posted September 18, 2014 at 10:47AM
    In my endless quest of that just right sound I came across the MXR Custom Badass '78 Distortion. Seemingly, distortion would be the most important word in that product name. But Custom has severe connotations to electronic musicians and well, badass pretty much doesn't need an explanation. What...

    TC Electronics Trinity Reverb

    By Victor Oshiro | Posted August 31, 2014 at 10:52AM
    When I did the Quilter Toneblock review my son collaborated since he gigs live every week. His input was that he needed a reverb and from that point on he kept using the Quilter Aviator. Give it a month or so and we found the TC Electronics Trinity reverb. I'm a more is less kind of guy but my...

    As a veteran PlayStation® gamer and customer I can honestly say that the console has greatly evolved since its first generation release. The PlayStation was my first ever console and I've stuck with it through the years through thick and thin, outright refusing to switch to Microsoft’s...

  • Sony's networks attacked by DOS attack

    By Victor Oshiro | Posted August 25, 2014 at 09:56AM
    We have news that Sony's network as well as their Playstation Network are down due to a denial of service attack. Curiously, news stations are reporting that a Sony exec's plane was diverted yesterday - naming that exec in the warning about a bomb. More word about the DOS attack here.

    Plants Vs Zombies 2

    By Carlos Rios | Posted August 24, 2014 at 10:56PM

    When we think about zombie, what follows are usually thoughts such as nuclear weapons, expensive military weaponry and those really cool cars that are upgraded to take on zombies. But that doesn't come in Crazy Dave’s mind. No in fact he has a, unusual weapon. His best weapon, a...

    Canon EOS Rebel T3i

    By Kalea Oshiro | Posted August 20, 2014 at 02:17PM
    I have recently been named as the Chief photographer of my yearbook staff, not only because I know my camera's features inside and out, but I love cameras, and I especially love Canon cameras. They are the easiest cameras to use, and are pretty affordable too. The best model I have used so far...

    Nintendo Wii U

    By Kalea Oshiro | Posted August 15, 2014 at 09:21AM
    I'm not much of a gamer, and not a very good one either, but I find that there are still ways for me to enjoy my past time gaming. The Wii has always been one of my favorite ways to play games, especially games like Just Dance and Mario Kart. If you are wondering how the Wii and Wii U are...

    HUDWAY GPS Navigation

    By Victor Oshiro | Posted July 20, 2014 at 12:58PM
    I love taking long road trips. Two thousand miles over a few days is my idea of fun which I know for most people sounds like the beginning of a horror movie. If I get a few extra days to get to my destination I'll take side roads or smaller highways to meet the locals and see what I can find....
  • Apple to ditch the headphone jack?

    By Victor Oshiro | Posted June 5, 2014 at 10:41PM
    The more of this story I read the less I liked it. I like being able to have one set of headphones for all my equipment - having to buy proprietary adapters or not being able to use future Beats headphones with anything but Apple products just doesn't seem appealing. Read about it here.

    Actiontec Pwr51w Wireless Network Extender

    By Victor Oshiro | Posted April 15, 2014 at 09:46AM
    Not too long ago I reviewed a wireless network extender from TP-Link. What was noticeable with that device is that the further the extender got from the base signal the poorer a job it did rebroadcasting the wireless signal. In essence, you have to be close enough to get wireless to be able to...

    Tone Grenade Pedal

    By Victor Oshiro | Posted March 27, 2014 at 04:16PM
    The three main ways to make distortion are with fuzz, overdrive, and a distortion pedals. I tend  to stick to overdrive pedals for a couple of reasons. First, I can get a lot of distortion/gain from just about any amp or even a preamp like a pedal board. Secondly, I prefer the more singing...

My son is an avid gamer and wanted a laptop to web surf with and play games. We tried installing games on my laptop and found that...

    I'm pretty good at taking care of my gear so it shouldn't come as a surprise that my last TV - a 50 inch Samsung Plasma - lasted my family about 6 years of near constant use. That TV is now being used in my bedroom but it was getting time to update to a newer set. New features and better picture...

    To combat a recently discovered security hole Apple has released a new iOS today. It's small - 13 mb. During the process my phone got stuck on the updating process - I'd get the Apple logo on the screen during startup but the OS wouldn't load. After connecting the phone to my laptop iTunes...
