Cable Organizer Kensington SmartSockets Review

By | Power, Reviews | No Comments

kensington-smartsocket.jpgThe good folks over at Cable Organizer wanted me look over a Kensington SmartSockets Surge Protector. Sure, cables and cable management aren’t the sexiest tech areas in the world, but it’s something we all deal with. And power strips and surge protectors are a necessary evil in a high tech world. Let’s get down with some details on this particular surge protector. The Kensington SmartSockets surge protector features a table top design with six power outlets. This is ideal for conference rooms where conference phones and other devices have adopted a circular carriage. The design is sleek for a power strip and includes colored labels for easy identification.

Canon PowerShot S3 IS 6MP Review

By | Camera Digital, Reviews | 4 Comments

canon-powershot-s3.jpgI bought the Canon PowerShot Pro Series S3 IS 6MP with 12x Image Stabilized Zoom 6 months ago. We formerly owned a Sony Cybershot and weren’t able to do as much as we wanted. So, when we were going to go to the beach, we decided the time was right to invest in a new camera. Let me preface this review with some things. First, I am not a photography enthusiast or expert. I really like photography but have not had the time to invest into it. Having said that, I think this review will be of some real value to ordinary folks, with limited time. This review will serve you well if you are looking for a mid-range camera that works well for the novice.

GFI EndPointSecurity Review

By | Reviews, Security | No Comments

I was walking the other day, thinking about organizational security. There are all kinds of products out there to help you harden your perimeter. But there is one area that scares the daylights out of corporate security professionals – portable storage media. It wasn’t that long ago when 1.44 MB floppy drives ruled the day. And getting enormous amounts of sensitive data would have taken a long time. Now, we have 60GB iPods that can be easily taken into companies and used against them. And what most organizations fail to realize is that most crimes are not usually carried out by outsiders. The Computer Crime Research Center found that 98% of all crimes committed against companies had insider connections. So, if our potential threats are already inside our walls, how can we guard against security nightmares?

Taceo Email Attachment Security Review

By | Email, Reviews, Security | 3 Comments

essential-security-logo.jpgFirst, I want to thank the kind folks at Essential Security for the opportunity to review their interesting software. Simply put, Taceo (Latin for “I am silent”) makes your email attachments secure. This keeps would be snoopers from viewing those attachments. But it also helps with one of the most troublesome issues about email – control after sending. Taceo allows you to control viewing, editing, printing, and forwarding. That’s some nice peace of mind. And if you’re HIPAA conscious or are doing Sarbanes Oxley compliance, then you need something like this – period. Ok, let’s dive into Taceo.

Invisible Shield is Peace of Mind for your iPod

By | iPod, Reviews | No Comments

ipod nano shield.gifThe ShieldZone corporation wants to ease your mind. Everyone hates getting their iPod scratched, or worse, broken. They aim to make those iPod mishaps a thing of the past. Their Invisible Shield is a thin, transparent layer that fits over your iPod. And it’s made out of the same material that protects military helicopter rotors. Check out this demo to see its strength. We got the Invisible Shield and installed it in five minutes. It was easy and harmless. You basically spray the Invisible Shield material with the included spray. And then you overlay the Shield and work out the bubbles with the included tool. Then we took our iPod on a torture test – a week long vacation with 3 kids. Read More
