Tech Talk: Flip Out

I’m back with another one and I’m glad you’re back too. I was able to round a few goodies…I hope you


First off, I know just about every cell phone can record

video, but I found this line of full functioning digital camcorders from Pure Digital that even fit in your


The Flip Video has

everything you need to shoot, transfer (flip-up USB connector) and edit all in

one package.It starts out at $119, but the one I tried out from the Ultra

series is priced at $179.99. It comes in several colors, including black, orange, white and pink.

Here are just a few of the features:

2GB of

internal memory for 1hour of storage1.5”

x 2.16" x 1.25" physical dimensions

Apple turned a lot of heads with their Mac Book Air. I don’t

care what you say, putting your computer in an envelope is pretty hot - but if

you’re not ready to leave the PC behind, Lenovo’s

Thinkpad x300 maybe the solution.

This chart puts the Macbook Air and the x300 head to head.

Over the past few weeks, I’ve written about a hard drive or

two to keep all that data you hold so dear safe. This one is new for me; I’ve

never seen any like this. SentrySafe

is keeping all you info safe by putting it in a safe.

Their digital back up system called the Fire-Safe is waterproof and can be submerged for up 24 hours, and is

fire-resistant for 30 minutes at temperatures reaching up to 1,550 degrees

Fahrenheit. It comes in two sizes, 80gbs

and 160gbs priced at $259.99 and $359.99 respectively.

Until next time, let me know what y’all want to see featured
