DJI Digital FPV System

It’s downright scary to see how fast DJI moves. Give it a month and this crazy advanced FPV system will be obsolete in the market – not because of competitors, but because DJI will release something even better.

NOMAD Kevlar Cables

Read More

I hate charging cables. Even the Apple made units wear out too fast and you are left with this frayed cable that works only if it’s oriented just right and you don’t touch it. It’s made doubly frustrating when you’re in the car.

These cables solve that… I actually don’t think it’s the novelty of the Kevlar, but the shroud they use around the ends that makes them so durable.

And they may seem expensive, but since you aren’t replacing it every six months, it’s actually kind of cheap. Just don’t lose it!

Roccat Vulcan 120 Aimo

I don’t own one and have yet to test it, but a recent reddit poll eluded to this being the best overall keyboard on the market. The people that own this thing love it.

But, of course, it’s damned expensive. $260.

The Sevenhugs Smart Remote U

Read More

I just got one of these Sevenhugs Smart Remotes to review… and holy hell, is it good at what it does. There are no buttons. Essentially, you just point the remote at whatever it is you want to control and the display on the remote shows the interface needed to control it. It just works. The catch is, you have to put sensors in the room where the remote is to be used.

Don’t want sensors? Get the cheaper Smart Remote X ($200). It works just as well as a remote and you don’t have to use the sensors… You do lose the “point and shoot” novelty, but it’s still a fantastic remote.

The Facebook Catastophe

Read More

I’m asked about my distaste for Facebook quite a bit and have a sort of elevator response that I give. But frankly, that’s the tip of the iceberg. Roger McNamee wrote the book on it… and he recently did a podcast with Mark Hurst that gives a more detailed perspective of the problem.

Find a tech guy… any tech guy in the tech world… and ask him if he has a facebook account. There’s a reason for his answer.

Anyway, take some time to listen to this.
