Inateck USB 3.0 to SATA Converter Adapter review

My overflowing drawer of semi-obsolete computer parts and cables contains a number of hard drives from old computers. I hold on to them partly to keep any personal data under my control, but also because “you never know” when I might need to recover that data, or maybe even find a way to repurpose an old hard …

Expand your MacBook Pro or MacBook Air’s file storage with a micro SD card

Adding more file storage to a MacBook Pro or MacBook Air usually means hanging an external hard drive off a USB port, plugging in a USB flash drive or inserting an SD card. All these ways will work just fine, but they aren’t the most elegant solutions. Dangling an external drive from your laptop when you’re …

SendStation PocketDock

Last month I purchased a 2006 Mazda 3 5 door, which I’m totally enjoying. It is my first new vehicle in 15yrs. Yes it’s true that I’ve been driving the same little Red pickup truck (1991 GMC Sonoma) for the last decade and a half. There’s something to be said for no car payments :o)

So anyway, I was really looking forward to this new car having a much better radio than the junko Delco in the Sonoma. Unfortunately, the stock head unit in the Mazda turned out to be a little disappointing. It lacks an Auxiliary Audio Input, so that means no optimal way to play an iPod through the speakers. I tried several iPod powered FM transmitters, but struck out there too. Unlike in my truck, the sound quality using one was horrible. Also, the location of the cigarette lighter adapter ruled out using the TransPod, which worked wonderfully in the truck.
