Airtame - Wireless HDMI Connection Between Devices
Remember Google Chromecast? The Chromecast is an amazing gadget – it allows you to wirelessly transfer a Google Chrome tab to a TV screen allowing you to watch Youtube clips, browse website and even play browser games on your TV set. While all this is amazing, the Chromecast has a limitation – it can only transfer a Chrome tab to the TV screen – no Firefox tabs, no local movie watching, no local pictures slideshows … you get the point.

Enter Airtame – Airtame is designed to use a regular WiFi connection to make a link between your computer (works on Windows, Mac, Linux, desktops and laptops) and any other screen (including TV sets and PC screens). Simply hook up the Airtame into the HDMI port of any screen, turn on your laptop and choose to share or extend your desktop on the newly added screen. That’s it! As simple as it can get – also check the Sony FMP-X1 – The 4K Ultra HD Media Player and the Roku 3 HD Streaming Box for two other ways to stream content to your TV set.

The Airtame is in project stage at Indiegogo and you can secure one for an early bird price of $89 (delivery set for May 2014).

3 Steps To Help You Choose The Best Laptop For The Lowest Budget

I know you want the best possible laptop with the most powerful processor, huge amounts of RAM, a dedicated video card and almost unlimited storage space. Heck, an ultrabook would be amazing, but how about a big, powerful gaming mean-machine you can hardly describe as a laptop? Should it be an 11-in, a 13.3-in a 15-in or a 17-in? And the screen … should it be touch or not, should it be high resolution or lower res is just fine?

There are many laptop buying guides out there – some are too technical, some don’t have enough info and some have too much. Don’t worry, I’ll help you find the best laptop for the lowest budget possible and I’ll even tell you where to buy it.
I will do this in a simple way, in plain English so even a 5 years old will be able to follow through. But before that, let me tell you a little story … There was a time (about 4-5 years ago) when buying a laptop meant either having a huge budget to buy a good computer or having a low budget and ending up with a crappy one! Everything was in the budget. Most times we sacrificed features (read video output, Kensington lock, backlit keyboard, decent sound) to squeeze in a bit of extra power. At that time technology was expensive.

How about now? Now technology is cheap. So, with a bit of preparation, you can get the perfect laptop for your needs an the cheap. Grab a pen and a piece of paper or open your favorite note taking app and let’s get you a new laptop: ……………

GScreen SpaceBook 17 - The HD Dual Screen Laptop

In a world where ultrabooks are kings and most laptop manufacturers are making efforts to make their products thinner, smaller and lighter the guys from GScreen decided to go for screen real estate and pulled a 17-in dual HD screen laptop weighting 10 pounds (4.5 Kg). Are you ready to let go on portability for processing power and screen real estate? Let’s check out the SpaceBook’s technical specs:

  • Two 17.3-in LED-Backlit Screens, each with HD resolution (1920 x 1080 px)
  • Third generation Intel I7-720QM Quad core @ 1.73 gHz
  • 8GB DDR virtual memory
  • 1GB NVIDIA® GeForce® GTS 250M GPU 1333Mhz
  • 500GB HDD @ 7,200 RPM
  • Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 6-in1 Media card reader
  • Built-in stero speakers

While dual screen laptops have been around since a couple of years ago, I am still impressed by the amazing screen real estate packed in the SpaceBook 17. I am looking forward to see an updated version featuring the forth generation of Intel processors, an upgraded video card, at least double the RAM and a SSD storage drive. The 17.3 in laptop format is big enough to jam all these inside while still assuring a proper cooling process.

What’s your take on this Behemoth GScreen dual screen laptop? Would you get one for your daily computing needs?
