    3M Scotchlok butt connectors

    I ran across these when they came with my little Noctua fans. Please note they are for low voltage, but standard crimps should be fine. You just cut your wires, don't strip the end and slip the wires in and press done on the button with either the special tool or a pair of pliers. There is gel...

    Why is it taking so long?

    My boss pulled one on me this morning. Brought back memories of customers dropping on their computers for a data transfer and then coming back in 1 hour to see if it was done. He wanted me to pull his photos off his phone that he has never backed up before. 53 gigs of videos and photos, mostly...

    Let's talk about vehicle GPS devices

    I would like to discuss vehicle GPS units. We have a Garmin (I forget the model number) but i think it's a 5" widescreen model. When I bought it thankfully it came with lifetime maps. We used it over the weekend and I was thinking it was such a great investment, I mean I don't know how people...

    Installing screen protectors

    I think this belongs in Vent here. There is nothing worse than installing a screen protector. Just when you think you get it right you will notice a small speck or fingerprint. But @C Pav had good advice, take a long hot shower, then why the room is somewhat steamy install it. The dust particles...

    Ban of larger device electronics on airlines

    I wonder with the recent ban of larger devices on airplanes from some Mideast and Africa countries, if this will be the beginning of whole bans all over?  Not only is the U.S. doing it, but looks like the UK will enact this as well.  This affects carry on items, but can still check them in on...

    Soldering as a hobby

    Anyone do a lot of solder work?  I've generally not been the greatest at this, but one sister-in-law had brought a number of poorly treated electronic devices that needed some work.  I've soldered a 3.5mm jack onto something that was torn off before, so she had hoped I could fix them.  They've...

    Electronic pest repellents

    So in my new garage the old owner left some electronic pest repellents plugged in. I have never been around them before. But they are interesting. Basically I guess they produce electronics sounds that keep bug and rodents away. I did a search on Amazon and there are quite a few of them and a...

    Teardown of the world's worst tablet

    I have to admit I had a good laugh. Who even built these things? How can it even run?

    Tavi electronic device

    I really like this idea. i always thought the gameboy sp had a good design. The player features WiFi-based IPTV playback (in the black version, the white edition keeps it a bit more traditional), codec support aplenty, and a pretty slick interface for a fairly no-name player...
