Ampe A10 quad-core Freescale i.MX6 tablet review

Liliputing has posted up a review of the Ampe A10 quad-core Freescale i.MX6 tablet.  This Chinese tablets has some monster specs including the Quad Core CPU.

While the i.MX6 quad isn’t as fast as some other recent chips, it seems to provide a decent bang for the buck. At $220, the Ampe A10 is one of the cheapest 10 inch tablets around with a quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 CPU.

Acer C7 Chromebook gamechanger

 

Everyone was disappointed when the iPad Mini was priced higher than expected.  The $329 price tag was way too high for budget minded consumers during the holidays.  Now you can purchase a feature rich laptop for an amazing $199.  The Acer C7 Chromebook maybe the hottest item this holiday season with a low price with high value features.  The Acer C7 Chromebook features a Intel Core processor, 11.6-inch display, a built-in HD camera, dual-band Wi-Fi, and HDMI output.  The 320GB hard drive will give more than enough to save all of your work on.

Jabra Solemate Review

 

Jabra is expanding its line from Car Speakers and Bluetooth headsets to wireless speakers. The Jabra Solemate is their first Wireless Bluetooth Speakers to be used with Smartphone’s and Tablets.  Although there is many Bluetooth speakers on the market, I found quality ones to be lacking.

The Jabra Solemate is inspired by a rugged shoe or boot with a rubberized bottom sole and pull tab that can be used to carry the mobile speaker. The curved sides, metal body, and rubber give the Solemate a luxury feel. I have reviewed several Bluetooth speakers in the past but the Solemate is the only one that doesn’t feel like a toy.  The Solemate measures 2.8 by 6.8 by 2.5 inches and weights 1.3 pounds.

The setup of the Solemate was very simple. I just powered on the Solemate and an intro tune came on and I held the power button up for 3 seconds. Then the iPad seeks Bluetooth devices and I click and pair with the Solemate. The setup was so simple I was up and running in seconds. I now can view my music on my iPad and play the music through the Solemate rather than the tiny speakers on the tablet.  The battery lasts 8 hours of wireless play.  The sound quality on the speakers is the best I have seen on a portable speaker.  The built in subwoofer provides rich bass and can go up to 120 dB SPL.  The Bluetooth speaker also can be a wired speaker with include usb cable or 3.5 audio cable.  The Solemate can also connect to your phone to be your personal speakerphone.

Overall I love the new Jabra Solemate as it is easy to use and feels of the highest quality.  The Solemate is a well built Bluetooth speaker and has a stylish design.  The Solemate is a perfect companion to my new iPad when watching movies and clips on YouTube.

WINGStand Portable Stand Review

The new iPad is heavy and when watching videos I prefer to use a stand.  The WINGStand portable stand can dock your iPad complete with Apple keyboard.  It is a new product that is very convenient when traveling.  I have used many stands in the past for iPads and iPhones but the WINGStand really stands out.

The WINGStand comes in black or white colors and is made of durable plastic.  The stand is made to hold a tablet device along with an Apple Keyboard.  The stand comes in two pieces that you can attach for travel and break apart to use as a stand.  The WINGStand measures 2” × 2.75” × 0.75” and weighs a mere 0.53 ounce.

Since the WINGStand breaks apart you can adjust the two pieces to accommodate any size tablet or phone.  I tested it using the new iPad, iPad Mini, and iPhone 5 and it worked great each time.  When you attach an Apple Wireless Keyboard you can make this into a small dock that you can type and browse the web on.  I could see people putting this in the kitchen and looking up recipes on or doing some light business work on.

I put the WINGStand on the coffee table and I browse the web and type out emails while watch TV on my big screen.  Also it’s lightweight make the stand perfect for travel on the plane on a long distance flight.  At only $14.95 a piece this is a perfect stocking stuffer this holiday season.

The Black & Decker Gyro Review

 

I’m no expert when it comes to home repair but the Black & Decker Gyro sure makes me look like one.  The Gyro is a new power screwdriver from Black & Decker using motion-activated gyroscopic technology for easy simple use.  The Black & Decker Gyro is the perfect tool for both men and women to fix things around the house without much any instruction.

The Black & Decker Gyro comes with a single charger and two 1-inch screw driving bits.  What comes in the package is everything you need to get started on you home projects.  The pistol like design makes it easy to grip and hold for precision screwing in screws.

The Gyro operates by griping the Gyro with back button pressed and tilting the Gyro to the right to screw in the screw and turn left to unscrew the screw.  I have to say it’s probably the easiest tool to learn without having to read a manual.  In a matter of seconds I replaced a light switch outlet that was crooked.  The 4 Volt MAX lithium-ion rechargeable battery are really powerful and provide 18 months charge.  The LED light comes in hand when you’re working at night and need a little more light to fix the problem.  The Black & Decker Gyro is made to last and comes with a two year limited warranty.

The Black & Decker Gyro is the perfect pick up and use tool around the house that will get used quite often.  It’s lightweight and ease of use makes this an essential tool to add to your tool box or cabinet.  Black & Decker has been leading the way in packing technology into power tools and the Gyro packs a powerful punch in compact size.  The Gyro is the perfect gift for the tool guy in you family and it’s less than $40 to buy.
