iDevice users has a common problem: breakage of the Apple’s 30-pin connector cable after certain period of usage. the MYSAVER, started out as a Kickstarter project, aims to save your original Apple cable from meeting such an early decommissioning. It is a simple device that attaches to your original Apple cable’s ends (the USB and the 30-pin) that prevent them from ever breaking. simple as that. no frills, no gimmicks, just plain protection for your much treasured original Apple cable. perhaps, applicable for those swear by the originals. however, such protection doesn’t come cheap. it will set you back at $24.99 a set but then again, it wouldn’t probably save much more in long run. though I have to say that the breaking part doesn’t really bother me much as long as it is still functional. it’s your call.

don’t like Apple, and loath the flood of Android tablets and yet still yearn for a tablet that does media and stuff? well, you are in luck. Cowon (yes, they are still around) has announced media tablet R7 that (incredibly) runs on Windows CE 6.0 OS. i applaud Cowon’s persistence in this respect but on the other hand, we are not sure how this is going to work out. these days we choose between iOS and Android, and we have almost forgotten about Windows CE until today. thanks for reminding us, Cowon. sporting a 7-inch display with just 800 x 480 pixels resolution, the R7 is said to be capable of outputting full HD 1080p via its HDMI out. other features include long battery life, numerous formats and codecs support, 64GB internal storage, a micro SD slot, and stubbornness for staying with Windows CE… oh wait, the latter isn’t really a feature. does it? anyway, no word on its exact pricing or availability at this point in time.

these days we almost cannot live without a computer (and Internet, of course) and for that, it is important to get this ‘cannot live without’ culture across to our younger ones by getting them to start early into the reliance of computing. apparently, Lenovo knew this fact and has pushed out the Lenovo ThinkPad X130e, specially tailored for the education market and since it is targeted at much younger users, it is also ruggedized to meet any potential abuse that kids at age could potentially unleash. some of ruggedized aspects include rubber bumper around plastic chassis, thicker bezel protected by 1.2mm plastic, recess and reinforced ports, a hinge rated for 30,000 cycles, and accelerometer to protect the hard drive from shock. though protected, the result of this ruggedizing resulted in a weightier 11-inch laptop (1.78kg, to be exact).

speaker systems are a dime a dozen in the market and obviously, we can’t be featuring each and everyone out there but there comes a time where we stumble upon a couple that we felt it will be criminal if we didn’t share it with you. the Minuskull just happens to be one of those speaker worthy of mention. as the name suggest, the Minuskull is shaped to resemble a skeleton head, albeit being a cartoonist one but it makes sense too, cos’ most of us wouldn’t want to be sharing our humble abode with a life-like skull, isn’t it? under the hood are a pair of broadband Fostex Fe-83 drivers with banana leaf pulp-made membrane, a mini subwoofer, and a custom-made 50W Mosfet amplifier. a set of RCA input allows for connection to virtually any sound source such as iPod, MP3 player, computer or whatever you fancy.

have you ever wonder what would Kevin Durant be if he wasn’t a professional basketball player? the newly announced Nike Zoom KD IV Weatherman Edition should give you a hint to that answer. apparently, weatherman was Durant’s childhood dream job. of course, he didn’t go that route but this pair of weather map inspired colorway sneakers should be at least be a consolation for that failed weatherman dream. aside from its eye-catching green front upper, the shoes feature a thermal weather map design on its back heel through to the sides, backgrounding behind the lime green Nike logo and that’s not all: flip the sneakers over, that familiar thermal weather map continues on the sole but this time, it imitates the thermal pattern of Durant’s feet.
