MobileLite Wireless

Sharing media files and content with mobile devices isn’t always an easy task. The Kingston MobileLite Wireless is a compact Wi-Fi device that aims to simplify file sharing while on the go and provide additional storage for devices with limited memory. Basically a Wi-Fi enabled card reader, the MobileLite Wireless comes without any on-board storage. Instead, it has a USB port and a built-in SD card reader that allows the user to plug in their own USB flash drives and microSD/SD memory cards. It also doubles as an external battery pack, capable of charging your mobile devices. Could the MobileLite Wireless be an ideal mobile travel companion? Read on to find out.

Batteries are the weakest point of any portable electronic device. They are the only piece of the mobile-puzzle that keeps us from being truly mobile. Eventually, this piece of the puzzle will be figured out. Until then, carrying a spare battery for a smart phone or tablet isn’t always possible, giving accessories such as the myCharge Peak 6000 a chance to fill a void.

There are a lot of choices for smartphone cases and what works for one person may not work for another. It’s really a personal choice based on your needs and preferences. TPU cases tend to be the closest thing to not having a case at all, similar to silicone cases. The advantage of TPU over silicone, however, is that TPU is tougher, more durable and attracts less dust/lint. I had the opportunity to try out the Cruzerlite Androidified A2 TPU case for the Galaxy Nexus and came away very impressed.

Straight Talk BYOP

As more people look to lower monthly bills and spending, one area that is often looked at (at least by me) is wireless service. Using one of the larger carriers as your service provider can set you back $70+ per month depending on the provider and plan. Pre-paid providers are starting to get looked at as viable alternative, and rightfully so.

Eye-Fi Mobile X2 8GB Memory Card

Chances are, you’ve heard of Eye-Fi wireless memory cards. For years, Eye-Fi memory cards have been making the process of transferring photos from cameras to computers a simple, cable-less affair. Not being satisfied with being a one-trick pony (albeit an amazing trick), Eye-Fi introduced a new feature called Direct Mode. Direct Mode allows photos from your camera to be wirelessly transferred to your smartphone or tablet, even without a Wi-Fi connection.
