ALL tech companies copy. It’s all built on what came before. It’s how it’s implemented and the infrastructure built around it that matters and few companies out side of Apple, Google, and possibly Samsung seem to do it very well.

Genius LuxePad 9100 Bluetooth Keyboard
Review

On November 27, 2012, in Bluetooth, iOS, iPad Keyboard, Keyboard, Review, by Peter Nikolaidis

Genius LuxePad 9100 Bluetooth Keyboard
Price:$69.99 US
Company: Genius


I was recently sent a LuxePad 9100 Bluetooth Keyboard by Genius to review. In a nutshell, if you’re going to use a physical keyboard with your iOS (or other) device, this is a decent unit. However, there are shortcomings, not necessarily of the hardware, that you should be aware of.

Pioneer Elite N-30 Front View

Pioneer Elite N-30 Networked Audio Player
Company: Pioneer Electronics
Price: $499.00 USD

Pioneer, a venerable name in home audio, has come up with a pair of interesting devices to better integrate the audio part of the internet and your own digital music library into your home audio system, the N-30 and N-50 Networked Audio Players. The Networked Audio Players are part of Pioneer’s Elite product line, noted for their excellent construction and superb audio quality. Pioneer foolishly loaned me an N-30 to evaluate. I say foolishly only because I seem to attract products for review that have fundamental flaws that cause me to write far too many negative reviews. Sadly, this is one of them.

About Larry Grinnell

Larry Grinnell has been a Mac user since before there were Macs, first being exposed to his brother-in-law's Apple Lisa 7/7 office system, in 1982 or 1983. After a nine year stint in the US Air Force, he took an electronics technician job at Motorola, Inc., where he stayed for almost 27 years. In that time, he held additional diverse positions from manufacturing engineering technician to technical writing to print production consultant to department webmaster. Currently, he's the sole technical writer for a small communications/electronics firm in Davie, FL. He is a member of the MyMac.com writing staff, and recently completed a two-year stint writing a weekly Macintosh and Apple-oriented column for the Palm Beach Business website (http://www.pbbusiness.com). In his copious free time, he does layout and prepress work for the Grinnell Family Association's quarterly newsletter, and runs their website at http://www.grinnellfamily.org. In 2013, one of his photographs was published in the New York Times. He just finished editing, layout, and prepress work for an all new Grinnell family genealogy, which promises to be roughly 2,800 pages in size. Publication date is tentatively scheduled for late 2015 or early 2016. Larry collects jazz guitar recordings, and is currently trying, for the fifth time, to learn to play the guitar. He lives in Greenacres, FL.

Tim and David have a heated discussion on the merit and fairness of comparing the Kindle Fire to the iPad in reviews. What the tech industry needs to do to get competitive and make better products is also discussed. Plus, David asks the question: with Modern Warfare 3, has the Xbox 360 reached it’s zenith? And Tim goes through a major change with his entertainment system. And if all that is not enough, some big changes are discussed about the MyMac Podcasting Network, and what is the Stoplight Network?

The Invasion of the GMen

It’s a week of MyMac.com Podcast tomfoolery as many of the shows switch hosts! The Pocket-Sized Podcast was fortunate enough (though that should be taken with a grain of salt) to get Gaz and Guy, the GMen from the MyMac.com Podcast to cover his duties. For some reason, Guy talked about Sharepoint a Microsoft program, while Gaz being more sensible (another grain of salt is required here) talked about his new iPhone 4S. Samsung’s Dutch patent trolling got a bit of a talking to and just why the EU thinks that carrying two cables for iOS devices is better than one baffles them both. Guy knows why most Android devices will never be updated and both GMen are a little perplexed by the change in the name of the Macworld Expo to iWorld.

Tim and David delve into Amazon’s Android App store and disagree, then a short rant on the TSA performing pat downs on children. Also, Cisco has killed off the Flip, and Tim and David spend just a few moments on ideas that no one had at Cisco to rescue the produce, apparently. Finally, Nintendo is rumored to be releasing a new home console system very soon, so the topic turns to the Wii and what Nintendo should have in the next system.
