Gadget Advisor: Not Just for the Gadget Obsessed!
Gadget Advisor is updated multiple times a day with articles on gadgets and consumer electronics. It also posts popular rumors about the technological world and covers tech and gadget news stories.
If you’re a gadget lover, you’re probably already reading the Gadget Advisor—either that, or your RSS feed reader is broken!
Don’t know what a feed reader is? Well, you’d be comfortable here, too—which is testament to the breadth and depth of the Gadget Advisor‘s postings. There’s a little something for everyone. Launched in September 2008, the Gadget Advisor is an all night drive through for those who obsess over gadgets and software, displaying the latest and greatest consumer electronics.
A typical week at the Gadget Advisor reveals a lot of useful advice, as well, like their recent feature on “34 Recommended Software Downloads” in which the Gadget Advisor crew provided a list of applications that they had extensively tested and found to be of the highest quality. Check it out here.
And the Gadget Advisor also includes some very in-depth reviews that even the most dedicated ‘gadget geek’ would consider worthy. Take for instance their recent piece on “Gadgets to Consider When Travelling“. After reading their article, which includes a capsule review of Envision’s “Video Eyewear” heads up display, you’ll wonder how you ever left home without any of these great ideas.
And the Gadget Advisor also includes some hardcore tech stories that only the most gadget drive could possibly appreciate or even decipher (One recent headline: “Cray CX1 Deskside Supercomputer“)! Any need for a $25,000 desktop supercomputer from Cray anyone?
Moreover, take a look at their recent piece on the “NVIDIA Quadro Plex 2200 Dedicated Desk-side Visual Computing System“, which the editors even admit “is not an average consumer platform in any sense, and you’re not likely to find it in or around many hardcore gaming enthusiasts’ vicinity”. Multiple GPUs working in unision. Can you imagine the computing power?
But in the present age, bleeding edge gadgets aren’t merely for the technology obsessed early adopters—in many ways ther are a sign of what Mom & Pop will be using in five-years time.
For instance, take a look at Gadget Advisor‘s take on Fujitsu’s “U820 Ultra-mobile PC (UMPC)“. These ulta mobiles are meant to be truly portable—in some cases replacing one’s reliance on laptops altogether. This unit offers built in GPS and is powerful enough to decode 1080p high def video. And it’s only 1.3 pounds. Yes! Under a pound-and-a-half!
I doubt however, that Mom & Pop will ever find themselves with a “7″ USB Touch-screen Monitor“. This nice looking piece of kit will be reserved for hardcore enthusiasts. They’re pretty cool looking and sport a touch-screen, a 1.3MP webcam, and microphone and headphone jacks.
The variety of equipment featured on the Gadget Advisor provides an excellent reason as to why I feel this gadget enthusiasts blog will develop a devoted (even obsessive) following.
