HDBT-990 Wristband Communicator

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on January 4th, 2010

Think of the HDBT-990 Wristband Communicator as a cellphone watch de-volved. It’s as if the industry has given up on the idea of a cellphone watch and focused instead on the communicator from Star Trek I. This is basically just a Bluetooth headset on your wrist.

One that costs $85 and lacks any style at all. If this is the future, then the future is ugly and awkward. Freeze me now and wake me up when I can call someone on my wrist in style.

Magic Mouse draining Bluetooth keyboard batteries?

Posted in Apple by Conner Flynn on January 3rd, 2010

The theory is that the Magic Mouse is preventing the keyboard from going into sleep mode, which makes sense. After one user swapped his Magic Mouse with a Logitech model, the problem was solved. Another user claims that Apple Tech Support says that this is a known Bluetooth driver issue and that a fix is on the way.
