Do you remember the iPin Laser Presenter that I reviewed for the iPhone? It was a very small device that plugged into the iPhone's headphone jack and could be used as a laser pointer and Powerpoint controller. It was a cool device, but at the time, it was only compatible with iOS devices. Samsung Galaxy… Read More

Working in a corporate office setting like I do, meetings are a fact of life. Heck, at Cummins, we have meetings to talk about meetings. No, I'm not kidding... Although I have to attend more meetings than I care to, I'm lucky that I don't have to present them. Recently I overheard one of my… Read More
High powered lasers are nothing new. We've reviewed several over the years. But have you seen one that can be switched between low and high powers with a turn of a key? Me neither, so that's why I agreed to take a look at the 125mW Green Laser Pointer from SKY Technologies. The laser comes… Read More
In July, I completed a review of the Jasper Keynote presentation remote and although I found the device to have some beneficial features, it lacked the reliability that I want when giving presentations. So my quest for a presentation remote to add to my gadget arsenal has brought me to the Presentation Remote Pro from Keyspan. Letâ€™s see how this one stacks up.
Let me start off by saying the Techlasers Infiniti 125mW Green Laser is NOT a toy. Most of your â€œrun of the millâ€ laser pointers are rated at less than 5 mW (milliwatts) of output. This one weighs in at a hefty 125 mW. What does that mean? It means this baby will burn â€“ literally. More on that laterâ€¦
I've recently had to give several presentations using MS PowerPoint and Keynote. Although nothing replaces preparation and knowledge in a successful presentation, a good gadget can go a long way to give your lecture professional polish.
Just how geeky are you? Do you happen to have a laser pointer in your gadget bag or drawer? Ok, give yourself 5 geek points. Do you use this pointer for tasks other than pointing out mundane details during presentations at your day job? Give yourself 5 more geek points. Do you pester your cat by shining the laser on the floor beside it, to get him to chase the tiny point of light like some type of alien rodent? Ok, no points for that, because that's just mean ;o) Can your laser beam its dot up to 38 miles and burn holes in black trash bags? I didn't think so... I win!
When I am working on my laptop, there is no doubt that using a supplemental mouse is much easier than trying to navigate with the Fujitsu P2110's foam covered peg. After a day of wearing my pointer finger to a nub, I mentioned to Julie that I needed to buy a travel mouse. She got… Read More
