IP Radio turns 15 – First out was the
Posted: January 12, 2015
Introduced at the Demo 2000 venture event the Kerbango Internet Radio became an “unknown” legend and we categorized it as an Internet Appliance. Stand-alone web access without a PC. Developed by a small group of people in Cupertino, CA, some of whom had come from Apple – just down the street, the cute retro-style radio made its debut onto the show circuit only to get bought up by 3Com in 2001 – Wow – and then … >> Read more

It’s all about the Mouse – From Mighty to Magic 2
Posted: October 24, 2015
We had them all over the years. The “Puck” Mouse that came with the first iMac, the oval [compromise] Mouse – still with just one button, making Apple’s insistence on a one-button mouse a running joke within the group of Mac users. Then came the Mighty. Finally – we had not just 2 but 4 buttons. It still had to look like a one-button mouse, though.
We guess it was the advent of “multi-touch” that may finally satisfy everybody – from the largest to the smallest “mouse”holder.
Just like magic – and it almost is.
Enter the Magic Mouse for a Test Drive. >> Read more

What if your Phone is always charged?

I always had a certain problem with my cell phones. Too many times I did not plug them in in the evening, with the result of an almost empty phone in the morning! The iPhone helped a lot – we plug it in anyway to sync our music, contacts, data – right? Well – not always. Not every day. Buying additional chargers made it easier. Now I had a charger for the car, one for the office, one for the kitchen and one in the bedroom. It did make it easier to keep it charged – as long as I plugged it in. And that was the problem!
About a week ago it all changed. I was able to “retire” some of my chargers. I’m charging wirelessly now. I’m using a Powermat. And I’m not running on empty anymore.
Stay tuned for updates on how it changed my charging MO. We will have a full review. In the meantime, to find out what Powermat is click here
