Work environment upgrades

After many months of contemplation, I have finally gone ahead and purchased a standing desk and a chair. Deciding on either of these is not easy as you are spoilt for choice.

HyderabadLaptops or seems to be a division or an alias of AISS (Academy for Integrated Systems & Solutions) and deals with computer hardware.

USB Flash Drive With Write Protect Switch

The first USB flash drive that I had owned, RiDATA 1 GB flash drive, had a hardware USB write protect switch. This was really cool as whenever I had to take a printout at some Internet cafe, I'd lock it and then only attach it to any computer.

However, of late, manufactures seem to have stopped putting this hardware write protect switch on USB flash drives.

We all have heard of the ISO image format which is a very popular way of backing up data CDs & DVDs. A very easy way of creating an ISO image in linux is by using the dd or dcfldd command.

Tekkeon TekCharge Mobile Power and Battery Charger Review

TekCharge MP1550 is an awesome mobile charger. I had purchased it from Amazon and got it shipped with one of my friends. Few things which I think are really cool about this charger are:

At last, I get my first smartphone - Motorola Fire XT530 which is based on Android. And this was a gift from a very close buddy of mine - Srikanth.

Fake Kingston 32 GB Pen Drive

Recently a salesperson turned up at our office proposing to sell Kingston 32 GB pen drives for a very cheap price (Rs.1200 each). He claimed that he had stolen some of them from the port when the shipment arrived. We were not interested and so did not purchase any of them.

As soon as he left, we did a google for the actual price of Kingston 32 GB pen drive. What we came across was a large number of articles mentioning about fake 32 GB Kingston pen drives.
