Jet Pack Guy vs. Race Car

It's crazy when Jetpacks have come far enough that a guy is willing to put one up against a race car.  Obviously the car still wins, but it looks pretty cool.  I can't wait to see Jason flying one of these to a live WTU.


4G iPad Data Usage

CNET has an interesting article showing how much data you could use if you start streaming video with the iPad LTE.  Until the network gets saturated, LTE is pretty quick and if you are streaming high-quality video on your new iPad, this could put the hurt on when it come to data caps.  At this point, your biggest AT&T package is $50 for 5GB, and Verizon can score you 10GB for $80.  It won't take long to stream HD on your favorite video streaming service before you are paying overages.

Your first order of business with Apple's third-generation iPad: fill up that stunning Retina Display with plenty of video. But hang on--if you're getting the 4G model, better watch that over-the-air video consumption. Lightning-fast as it is, over LTE, you'll be tempted to burn through your data plan in less time than you might think.

Big Storage Showdown

As we continue through the news today, we've got a few (lots) storage reviews to share.  Take a look below if you need some place to store your files.


Android vs. WP7

HardwareLook has the Galaxy Nexus on their bench and gives us the scoop on this ICS (Android 4.0) smartphone and seems to be quite impressed with the overall unit - although not it's size so much.  I guess they wouldn't like the Galaxy Note then at all.

The Samsung Galaxy Nexus has a few special features which make controlling your smartphone and data usage so simple. Heading into the settings menu we see the following options. No task manager app is required to download with the Nexus as Samsung have build in the app manager into the phone under the Apps option.


It's not a fair comparison as we move from a high-end Samsung phone to a entry-level Nokia Lumia 710 running Windows Phone 7 at HardwareHeaven.  Still, this phone is a pretty affordable smartphone and offers a great - albeit basic, array of features and functions.

Recently Nokia have had somewhat of a makeover though and having received the Lumia 710 all the nostalgic memories of the good times I had with Nokia came flooding back. So I am slowing things down with Samsung Galaxy S2 and going with the Nokia Lumia 710 for a while, seeing how things work out... running on Windows Phone 7.5 Mango, who could resist?

Linksys PLEK400 Powerline Networking Kit

PLEK400We have just taken a look at the Linksys PLEK400 HomePlug Powerline networking kit.  This little kit enables you to hook up one device to your network without running cables or setting up a wireless network.  The idea is great but we've seen some hits and misses in the Powerline market.  Please check our review for all the details.

As I referred to previously, installation of the Linksys PLEK400 Powerline Networking kit is a snap.  It comes pre-configured and synchronized to each other so that all you have to do is plug each of them into the wall and then plug the network cables into your devices.  In order to connect to your network, you'll need to plug one into your router or switch and the other one into your device.

Thermaltake Toughpower Grand 1200W

Toughpower Grand 1200WWe have just taken a look at the Thermaltake Toughpower Grand 1200W PSU.  Using some form of dark magic, Thermaltake has managed to cram a 80PLUS Gold PSU into a standard ATX-sized case and kept it quiet, cool and rock solid - even with a very heavy load.  Please check our review for all the details.

The Thermaltake Toughpower Grand 1200W PSU arrived a while back without announcement and it was a surprise to get such a large PSU to review.  Even though it's a massive 1200W unit, what impressed me first of all was the standard ATX size that allows this unit to fit into almost any PC case.
