http://youtu.be/UUR1nfMp_bw We’re putting an awesome, high-end conferencing system into the Geek House, thanks to our friends at Polycom. They’re coming to town to install the system this week, but first David Foster and I have to hang a couple of 50-inch monitors for video conferencing. Here’s how we did that!
About 15 hours ago, the European Space Agency announced a landing site for a mission to the Rosetta Comet. But just a few hours ago, the ESA released a high resolution photo of the comet that clearly has something visible which can’t be explained. Yes folks, its ACTUALLY a UFO! The Rosetta Probe cost a […]
http://youtu.be/Zm9ZfXHXVzM We just got three boxes from our friends at Seagate, and each one has 100TB worth of drives in them. These are the brand new 6TB drives and they’re headed for the 45 Drive Storinator in our data center. That means 270TB of space in a single chassis that we’ll use for video editing […]

Most of the time you’re just concentrating on not dropping it! That’s no way to get good video! The S1 from Shoulderpod makes holding the phone much easier while taking video. The […]

There are options, but they all have their problems: too slow, too clumsy, too insecure… the list goes on and on. To solve this Toshiba has created the TransferJet, which makes moving files fast, easy and secure. […]
http://youtu.be/pu9w-e3N2O8 What is IFA? IFA is a huge European consumer technology show. It’s similar to CES, but in a lot more buildings – not necessarily bigger than CES, because the buildings are smaller, but it’s very maze-like, and it’s open to the public. And while we were in Berlin, we visited Schloss Charlottenburg, an enormous […]
http://youtu.be/huZuX6SJA8U I never thought I’d see a pair of injection molded stainless steel headphones, but at IFA 2014 I found just that. The RHA T10i headphones are unlike any headphones you’ve ever used, with some awesome features brought over from heavy duty studio equipment to a form factor well suited to using with your phone […]
http://youtu.be/6L3L_urV3RQ If you need a stand for your iPad Mini, you’d probably also like one with built in charging. The iPort Charge Case and Stand gives you both, with a design that lets you view AND charge it in either landscape or portrait orientations. The case has a nice feel to it, and the base […]
http://youtu.be/rAPpwU6FrYk We’ve already told you about our giant Cyclorama Wall at the Geek House. It’s 25′ x 25′ x 12′ and it will allow us to do some really cool infinite white background stuff when shooting videos. But putting it together was one of the bigger single projects in the Geek House remodel job. Here’s […]
