SCOTTeVEST 237D

The SCOTTeVEST 237D is the updated version of the Three.0 Spring jacket that we reviewed about a year-and-a-half ago. We have been testing out the 237D in Seattle weather for much of December, and are finding that the 237D moniker - which stands for “237 days,” meaning you can wear it for 3-out-of-4 seasons per year - lives up to its name for the most part. The 237D features 33 pockets, and adds the Detachable Cargo Cache, built-in battery holders, addition magnetic enclosures, and two more pockets than the Three.0 Spring. Check out the full review after the jump.

Gear Live Office Chair Mod

I’ve been needing a new computer chair for a long time now, along with new computer speakers.  I finally decided to go out and get them, and as I was shopping I couldn’t help but think about the prospect of combining the purchases, with the end result being a hybrid office chair-surround sound system. Sure, they make them - but doing it yourself is a lot cheaper, plus it would satisfy the geek within. Read on for details on how to do the same.

Swann Cameras

We took Swann super-nice security cameras for a spin, and tried to do things with them that they weren’t necessarily meant for in order to show how else they might be used. Here are the items we tested:

The Swann kit comes in two boxes with everything you need to create a fully functioning, impressive, security camera net, screws and all. You can use up to four cameras using one DVR. It records for up to a year with the lowest resolution, a 250GB hard drive (included if you option it, or you can supply your own), and 1 frame per second. You may record in a variety of ways which include, full screen standard definition, low definition with four simultaneous motion-activated shots (including motion-activated in particular areas of the image,) among others.

SeV Rodeo

The SCOTTeVEST Rodeo is yet another in the 4.0 line from our favorite gadget clothing company. We have been testing out the rodeo for the past couple of weeks, and have found it to be as versatile as it is functional. It has 39 pockets of various shapes and sizes for all your gear, and has a microsuede finish. Check out the full review after the jump.

Xbox 360 DivxAny Xbox fanatic knows of Major Nelson (also known as the mild mannered Larry Hryb,) the cool Xbox Live employee who manages a blog and pod

blogcast show. Recently, he let everyone know that we shouldn’t expect Divx support from the Xbox 360 using the Media Center Extender function - ever. Why? Well, he eludes to the fact that there has not yet been one commercial DVD release in Divx format, and therefore, there is no reason to support it on the Xbox 360. He went on to say that Divx is primarily used as a method to “back up” DVDs, and Microsoft doesn’t want to get into any hot water on that front.

We have a much different stance on this issue…
