Review Dropcam® HD – Wins on Simplicity, Design, and Execution
There are lots of devices that claim to be easy to install. Dropcam has developed a Wi-Fi wireless solution that takes literally seconds to set up. That's quite an acheivment when you pull it off correctly.
The box claims “Watch online” in 60 seconds. I didn’t have a timer going but it sure was very close to its promise. I’ve installed quite a few other Wireless IP Cam solutions which were easy to install but none were as easy as this. Having installed hundreds of hardware devices and thousands of software apps, my main flaw is that I tend to try to jump ahead anticipate the next step after scanning the directions. Sometimes I omit steps by not carefully reading the quick start until I run into trouble. Sometimes it's a good test because many users tend to do the same. Read the review

Windows 8 Has Keyboard ShortCuts - Lots of Them!
Now that I’ve had several weeks to take Windows 8 for a spin I'm getting the hang of it. I see where Microsoft is going. Sort of. Initially, the "new user interface (UI)was quite puzzling to me. And it still is a pain on a non touch screen enabled device without a through knowledge of keyboard shortcuts or just dropping to desktop mode. Initially, I was only aware of a few keyboard shortcuts but not enough of them to keep me productive at all. Fortunately, there is a list. A large list of them! Most users without a touch screen device will want to learn and use them to navigate quickly. Where are the keyboard shortcuts?. Well they were hiding in plain sight. Turns out the Microsoft team had posted them on the Windows Experience site and I missed them. - Howard Sobel

Small, Fast, Flexible - WR700N 150Mbps Wireless N Mini Pocket Router
These three words spell out the advantages of TP-LINK’s new TL-WR700N 150Mbps Wireless N Mini Pocket Router. Packed inside this tiny footprint (3.2 x 2.8 x 1.1 inches it fits inside a large pocket) sits an extremely flexible wireless solution for use at home and travelling. Since many hotels offer wired ethernet connections they seem to limit you to one specific area. TP-LINK has eliminated that problem by allowing you to plug in the device near the cable and you have your own WI-FI hot spot in your room. You can then use your any of your WI-FI enabled devices. Surprisingly, it supports 5 modes: AP Mode (Default), Client, Repeater Mode and Bridge Mode. The AP mode converts a wired (cat 5 connection) into a simple wireless access point providing any WI-FI device within range a solid ultra fast connection. For comparison we tested a Fios G router, a Belkin N router along with the TP-LINK product. The WR700N got the fastest download and upload speeds on Ookla’s speed tests feeding off of a FIOS fiber optic connection. The modem is compatible with 802.11n/g/b and supports WEP, WPA/WPA2, WPA-PSK, WPA2-PSK encryption standards.Read more.
