Otaku Gadgets Week 33 Recap - gHacks Tech News

Otaku Gadgets Week 33 Recap

Otakugadgets.com is a gadget blog that is run by Everton of Connected Internet and Martin of Ghacks. It is actually our second joint venture after the successful Windows 7 website that we run together as well. We thought that it would be a good idea to write a weekly recap of the Otakugadget posts here at Ghacks to increase the reach of the website (and add some link juice as well).

A new week recap will be published on each Monday from now on giving short but precise information about the posts (max of one per day) that have been published at Otakugadgets in the last seven days. On to the posts:

  • Sony Vaio VGN-NW125J/T: HD, Thin and Light with a Low Battery Life - Sony is one of those companies that give a lot of attention to the appearance and the details of their laptops. Apple of course leads the industry in this (read Jobs is) but Sony is a good second in the design aspect. From their Vaio series of high-end laptops comes the well-designed and good looking Sony Vaio VGN-NW125J/T.
  • 5 Recent Voice Controlled Gadgets That Are Totally Cool! - Voice control is not what it used to be at one point. Back in the days when it was first introduced as part of mobile phones and other gadgets, it was still in its nascent stages. At that point, it was nothing more than a gimmick. This I can say from first-hand experience with older Nokia phones. The accuracy was nowhere near usable and well, it was not something you would want to rely upon.
  • Altec Lansing Expressionist Series Speakers: Double Barrel or Single Bass, Take Your Pick - A lot of people these days are making a permanent shift to laptops. There are various points as to why everyone is leaving their desktops but the main reason is the compactness and the portability. Laptops are fast becoming as powerful as desktops and hence it is easy to understand why people who wouldn’t make the switch earlier are doing it now. While laptops can match desktops spec to spec now, there’s usually one thing missing when people make the switch and that is audio.
  • Hewlett-Packard Pavilion dv4-1465dx: Runs longer and heavier - The Hewlett-Packard Pavilion dv4-1465dx is another laptop that is focused on being a great 14-inch laptop for students. As you might already know, students demand specific things from their laptops and the recent run of student friendly laptops try to conform to those demands. This particular portable has the advantage of a really long battery life. It has a huge battery that is likely to last you all day and for real.
  • Dell Studio S1440-022B: If you want budget and slim minus an optical drive, this is it - The Dell Studio S1440-022B is targeted at school students who are looking for a budget laptop. This new offering from Dell does something quite bold and does away with the optical drive altogether. As a result, the laptop becomes much slimmer and weighs less as well.
  • RIM (Research In Motion) BlackBerry Curve 8520: A Cheaper Curve - The new BlackBerry Curve 8520 is the model that comes after the Curve 8900. It is a lot like the 8900 with some of the features missing. Physically the design of the Curve 8520 looks a lot like the Curve 8900 but the former has enough new features that set it apart.
  • 8 Eco-Friendly ways of turning your gadgets green - I have recently been noticing a lot of new Eco-gadgets (or green gadgets if you will) in the market. A year or two back, these genuine eco-friendly products were barely practical let alone cool. But all that has changed. They are now looking pretty sleek and you can actually use them if you can get them. They aren’t always available and they are not available everywhere. If you do get them rest assured that that they are pretty cool and very practical.

Let us know if you have any tips or requests. We would love to hear them.

      I still dont see anything Otaku about Otaku Gadgets at all – just looks like more re-re-linked gadget blurbs and an unfinished wordpress theme (you guys didnt even fill out the about page or add text to the blocks at the bottom).

      Is this just linkbait?
