We have yet to meet someone who loves the fact that, while the Xbox 360 aims to give you a completely wireless experience, when your battery runs low, you must plug in with the Play and Charge Kit in order to keep gaming. The recently released Quick Charge Kit for the Xbox 360 allows you to charge your wireless batteries using an A/C adapter, letting you keep up to two batteries completely charged up and ready to go if the one you are using is happens to die. Andru and Jake take a look at the Xbox 360 Quick Charge kit in this episode.
Alright guys, we know how much you are looking forward to getting your hands on the Microsoft Zune. We get it. In fact, in an effort to satiate those of you who email us constantly asking for “behind-the-scenes” Zune information, you are in luck. The Gear Live crew was able to spend some time with a fully operational Zune, and we have the video footage to prove it. We walk you through the menu system and interface of the device, showing off a bunch of it’s features for you. Enjoy the video. Oh, and if you have any questions, feel free to let us know in the forums.
EDIT: Alright, we got a bit more information from Zune PR, and wanted to lay it on you, in case you were confused by anything stated in the video (or couldn’t hear it over the horrible trip hop beats). Just so we’re clear, here is the official status of Zune’s relationship to PlaysForSure: The PlaysForSure experience is designed to provide consumers with a consistent and guaranteed entertainment experience across the devices and services that are a part of the PFS ecosystem. Since Zune is a separate offering that is not part of the PlaysForSure ecosystem, Zune content is not supported on PlaysForSure devices. By the same token, Zune will work with Zune-specific content as well as non-DRM files.
Being in love with mobile technology and gadgets, the one thing we all have in common is our dependence on batteries. What most don’t know is that there are quite a few varieties of batteries out there, each with it’s own pros and cons. In this episode, we show you a few different batteries, chargers, and hook you up with some knowledge to stay powered while on the go.
We recently gave you a first-hand look at what goes in to making a Tom Bihn bag. Now we take a look at one of their specific products, the Archetype laptop bag. The Archetype is unique in that the outside is made of a natural cork fabric. It’s a bit trippy at first because it’s, you know, cork. However, the point of the bag is to protect your mobile computer. We show you the bag and discuss it’s pros and cons in this episode.
