• Conference Call with Viewsonic and Userful

    By Victor Oshiro | Posted March 9, 2015 at 10:04AM
    I was recently offered an opportunity to speak to representatives from both Viewsonic and Userful. What interested me in this was that news had just broken that the third largest company in VDI, Ncomputing, was being bought and had just laid off the majority of its workforce. I think Ncomputing...

    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

  • USB finally fixed

    By Victor Oshiro | Posted August 18, 2014 at 11:24AM

  • 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.
  • Fix for IE released

    By Victor Oshiro | Posted May 3, 2014 at 02:26PM
    We warned you that you needed to avoid Internet Explorer like the plague until a patch was released for its latest security flaw. In a very strange move Microsoft has decided to patch Windows XP users at this time also. Strange considering XP is no longer a supported OS but I guess the threat to...

  • Apple releases iOS 7.06

    By Victor Oshiro | Posted February 24, 2014 at 10:18AM
    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...
  • Flappy Bird Going Away

    By Victor Oshiro | Posted February 9, 2014 at 11:14AM
    In a bizarre move the developer of Flappy Bird is pulling the app from the app store. You have until noon Eastern Time to get a copy of the game. This article states its not for legal reasons and the developer was making $50,000 a day in advertising. A strange move that doesn't make sense...
  • iPhone 6 and Phablet news

    By Victor Oshiro | Posted January 7, 2014 at 11:56AM
    Some interesting updates in this article. First, a price drop for the 5s to coincide with the release of a Phablet (phone/tablet) and some more firm news on the iPhone 6. Previously Apple wasn't willing to cut the throat of the iPad with a phablet but that appears to be shifting quickly.

  • Windows 8.1 Released

    By Victor Oshiro | Posted October 18, 2013 at 10:32AM
    This news is about 24 hrs old but I waited to see if there were any issues reported. Luckily it looks like this update should be a go for anyone with Windows 8. What's new? As usual there should be a lot of security enhancements but of note is the return of the Start button. A move back to more...
  • iMessage not working in iOS7?

    By Victor Oshiro | Posted October 3, 2013 at 11:10AM
    Apparently I'm not the only one who found that iMessage no longer works in iOS7. Upgrading to 7.02 didn't help either. You did know 7.02 is out right? I suspect an update with a more classic look which also fixes all the glitches mentioned in this article will be out before too long. As far as...
  • Is ios 7 more meaningful than the iPhone 5s?

    By Victor Oshiro | Posted September 11, 2013 at 10:32AM
    Just before the release of iPhone 5s Apple will release ios7. Since most of us aren't going to upgrade our phones, tablets, and watches on release day for 5s I think this will be a more meaningful attempt by Apple to hold onto its market share. If you can survive this long video let us know what...
  • Huge iOS, OS X vulnerability uncovered that can render apps unusable

    By Victor Oshiro | Posted August 29, 2013 at 11:52AM
     "Apple has been aware of this vulnerability for six months and has yet to patch the exploit in any currently available operating system build." Yikes, expect an update soon I suppose. So much hype with new OS releases to coincide with iPhone 5s probably made this a back burner at Apple. Read...

    So you read articles how 3D printing will be a new revolution and you wonder how it can do anything for you. I came across this nice site where a car enthusiast is building an Astin Martin DB4 with 4x4 inch squares of plastic printed in a 3D printer here. If I'm understanding his process he will...

    Quilter officially released their head version of the Aviator amp we loved so much. That amp has become our go to amp for practice and performance and getting a head version should help folks who have been sitting on the fence decide if they want to try it. Here's a link to the product at...

    By Victor Oshiro | Posted July 30, 2013 at 09:07PM
    Looks as though this rumor is conclusive now. Whats the big deal? Biometric security could end up everywhere - from your car door to your front door. Maybe we'll lock someone out of the fridge if they don't do their chores or instead of entering a PIN with your debit card you can have your...
