Update on SharePort Go Wireless Router

Samsung Galaxy Camera Getting a Workout

Clever Camera Strap from CarrySpeed.com
We use cameras a lot and get to experience a lot of camera straps. This one from CarrySpeed.com has an amazing feature for very quickly adjusting the strap length.
Flashlight from Redrock Micro
Lots of companies have giveaway items at trade shows like NAB, but very few are as cool and useful as this flashlight from Redrock Micro.
Versatile Camera Cage and Eyepiece from CarrySpeed
We’re also very impressed by the camera cage and VF-4 eyepiece we got from the folks at CarrySpeed.com.
A VERY High-Capacity Backup Battery
If you need a LOT of backup power in your day, the Just Mobile Gum Max Duo is an incredible solution, packing 11,200mAh into a very compact design that’s easy to take with you when you travel.
Bruce Murray says
The flashlight is made by http://www.BaycoProducts.com . I’ve used them for years. They are nice for walking, flood lights you feet, forward facing spot lights the way ahead. I lost mine on my last trip. But I replaced it with a Nebo Larry Light. I clip them to the inside of my gear bags they flood the bags with light. Both are available on Amazon. Bayco makes several other Spot/Flood flashlights that are very versitile.

Just ordered 3 of those flashlights for $20 through Groupon
The wireless router is really a good update if you want wifi but what I want is the high capacity backup battery. This is really what we all need since all smartphones today drains super fast.
David Corbett says
All good stuff, looking forward to review of the Synology and how it stacks up against Drobo
