Pinoy Big Brother Unlimited Limited Edition Flash Drive

ads here too

At first, you would notice this little gadget as an ID card that you'll be swiping in your high tech office to get an access but hey it's a 4G USB Flash Drive.  Yes you're right it's a USB Flash Drive.  At first I didn't even know how to get the Flash Drive out.  After a few minutes of flipping and looking through it, I finally get it.  It was just a simple push to unlock it and then you swivel it outward of the card.  I thought I was supposed to slide it outwards.


Looking at it is just quite interesting because of its flatness and smallness.  Cool enough to have it around on your polo pocket.  Just don't put it in your wallet or your pant's back pocket because it's fragile and could break it instantly.  Well, gladly we were able to have this in the press conference of the Pinoy Big Brother Unlimited held last week.

Hmm... A smell while watching your favourite movie? Sounds interesting oops I mean smells interesting. 

It seems that there was a French company who made a smelly device for cinemas. I wonder what does it feels and smells experiencing that kind of cinema.  The company was called Olf-Action, Olf which comes from olfactory sense.  The device that was created was called Odoravision and the smell track are being fitted into movies.

I think they have a great output of their product that they will be releasing a similar device which is mainly for gaming and if possible for home cinema too.  They call this device as SMELLIT.  This is really interesting!  According to OhGizmo! this device was on display at the Lisbon Design Show.  I just don't know what are the reactions of the visitors and attendees during the design show.

The scents are listed here on this picture below.  I'm sure you will like some of it and some will be something that you will not.  I just hope there's an off button for it when it comes to bad odors.

Just a reminder avoid movies with lots of farting and other bad odors.  You might not enjoy what you are watching.

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Net10 for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

 

Net10 this October will be perhaps a good deal for most college students here in the Philippines, especially those exchange students and those who would go in the US to have their semestral break because this cell phone company is still one of the cheapest and value savers when it comes to communication expenses.  As we all know semestral break is a chance to have fun and relax for the students but of course parents also needs communication with them so this phone company will perhaps answer that call with Net10’s lowest, cheapest and great value of unlimited plans.  Aside from unlimited text of Net10 which students can inform their parents of their whereabouts and situations they also got their unlimited talk that can sure give assurance to parents of their young ones.

Students now a days are much well versed when it comes to gadgets and techie stuff so they would always prefer a very good and well designed gadgets that will suit their personality and needs. That’s what Net10 has install for most of the students, they got simple phones for simple needs, phones with essential features such as camera, video recorder, Bluetooth capability and mobile web which are all under $40.00.  They also got a full QWERTY keyboard phones, slider phones, and touch screen phones.  With these full features it is available for only under $60.00.

International Long Distance Service is also available to over 75 countries that only cost about 15 cents per minute on calls originated from US.  So parents will sure won’t have to worry about their students having semestral break in the US because these kids can call at them any time they want for a very minimal amount.

Luxuriously Odd Shape Vehicle

ads here too

Image is credited to its creator.

I have been featuring concept designs of vehicles and other strikingly futuristic vehicles but this one is really way more than futuristic in looks.  It's odd!  When I first saw this picture on coolest-gadgets.com the first thing came into my mind was a cyclops.  The one-eyed giant.

Though it looks futuristically montrous it got lots of interesting stuff in it.  It is called eleMMent RV, this 40-foot long vehicle has a 500 square feet of usable area, a master bedroom with a very cool 40-inch flatscreen, and a couch and a table that can be transformed into a bar and lounge.  This vehicle is actually a truck with a 500 horsepower which has a fireplace, a pop-upsky lounge and fog machine plus a feature of glowing paint in the dark and a very cool vehicle wash system.

According to the creator this vehicle is designed oddly to giveway for fuel efficiency and of course going green for the environment.

It think this is great for those who would always love to go on strange adventures and journey.

TDK Life On Record: WR700

ads here too

I only know TDK when I was in elementary and high school. That TDK was common in my dad’s cassette tapes. Yes! I’ve seen it only on cassette tapes and I think my dad got a pile of cassette tapes from TDK brands. I thought I would never hear something from TDK again. Honestly, I thought TDK was already lost not until I heard that brand again in the Bloggers Blowout Event that was sponsored by Astroplus, OrangeMagazineTV & LG. I was shocked at first because TDK… I thought they were lost already but it seems that they’ve just been quiet for quite some time and they were busy developing technologies for their head phones.

I think I have been preoccupied by those big names that have been popping out in audio stores and nearly forgot the brand that my dad had love for quite long years. Yes, TDK cassette tapes had been our friend during those days that my dad was far away from us. The clear voice of my dad on the TDK cassette tape recording makes it as if he was talking beside us and that’s how clear it is.

Though TDK was quiet and a little bit creepy crawling underneath those big names, they were able to release some of their head phones that are being used by some people.

2010 when they had released they newest product called the TDK WR700, still struggling beneath those big brand audio names they managed to poke in some holes on that mantle of the head phone mainstream.



Though I have been with some choirs and was trained by some of the members of the known choir groups in the country, I still lack the ability to be very much keen with regards to sound recognition. So, for the sake and for the benefit of those who are newbies into music and head phones let us both discover things about this certain product.

Specification Details first, which is based on the packaging itself.

Plug Type: 3.5 mm – this is the size of the plug being used. So basically it is the normal size used for headphones


Driver Diameter: 34mm – this is the size of the driver or maybe called as the speaker itself undressed of the glamour setup.

Frequency Response: 20-20,000Hz – does not know much about this but of what I understand it is the signal of the headphone to the transmitter.

Sensitivity at 1 kHz: 106±5dB – this speaks about the responded that you can hear even to the tiniest recordings.

Input impedance: 32 ± 10% ohms – not very much sure about this specifications so I will just leave it to the experts.

Transmitter Range: 10m – this the maximum distance that the transmitter and the headphone will be much effective.

Other specifications are…

Non-compressed Stereo Sound – Preserves original 16-bit 44 kHz-digital audio CD signal quality. Kleer does not compress the audio prior to transmission resulting in uncompromised quality.

Dynamic Channel Selection Minimizes Audio “Drops” – Audio streams in the robust 2.4 GHz ISM band. Dynamic channel selection allows the transmitter to monitor interference and switch to another channel if necessary. 10 Meter/33 Feet Transmitter-to-Headphones Range

Ultra-low Power Consumption – 2 AAA Batteries provide 30 to 40 hours of listening time.

What’s inside the box?

The whole box includes the following: Wireless headphones, 2.4 GHz transmitter, jack extension cord, storage case, plus (I just don't if this really comes in the box) 4 “AAA” batteries.

The Review

For the weight of the headphone I could say that it is just a common weight of around 170g - 200g for the headphone and for our head to carry it anywhere and in mobile.

Technology used for the wireless transmission is called Kleer, basically it is like Bluetooth but with much clearer reception. Based in which according to what I have heard during the demonstration and a firsthand experience, the music is quite clear enough to be heard. I just have not tried using the TDK WR700 with some interference in the area. Another amazing feature with the Kleer technology is that the wireless transmission can transmit from the device to transmission up to four TDK WR700 headphones. So basically the family only needs one transmission to transmit the audio recordings or movie up to four headphones makes it much quieter to watch movies during late night weekend.

Discovering and flipping the headphones. As I flip it around I have notice that the earmuffs can be folded inward of the headphone for easy storage. In one of the earmuffs’ outer cover has a removable cover in which two AAA batteries can be placed to let the headphone runs as it should be.

Design matters, well I like the color combination of grey and black. Simple, classy and it rocks.

The wireless transmission is also battery operated that's why it needs four AAA batteries for it to run. The proximity for the transmission to work is about 10 metters. The span is just right for you to go mobile without the hassle of wirings that might get you into trouble some time.

Four batteries are just right to keep you from using the gadget in a span of 30 to 40 hours of usage. You can enjoy a lot of good music with that span of time but of course you cannot go alive and awake in straight 40 hours. We all need to get some rest and sleep and that’s what is one of the main reason why the TDK headphones goes wireless.

To some it all, since I can only based my assessment in what I have experienced with the product I could say that the TDK WR700 is one great gadget to have when it comes to mobility while the listening experience is perfect enough just like what is their slogan “Life on Record”.
