If you have kids and you have modern gadgets such as iOS and Android tablets and phones, then you know how kids love to play games such as Angry Birds on these devices. However, like most parents you are probably a little apprehensive about handing over your gadgets to your kids and walking away due to the lack of default parental controls. This is where a device like the Nabi 2 really shines, as it has a kid-safe interface which you as a parent have full control over. For the price of around $199 its very competitive and it gives you the best of both an "adult" tablet and a kid-safe interface for your children to use.
We've talked about the Nabi 2 on some of our Podcasts and outlined its features in this review. You can take your Nabi 2 to a whole new level by "rooting" your Nabi 2 Tablet thanks to "jmztaylor" on the xda-developers website. Rooting means you can install Android apps from the Google Play Store and other apps such as YouTube, which you can't unless the device has root level access.
On the surface this looks like your typical blocky power strip, but under the hood this device is a full fledged hacking tool designed to let white hat hackers (the good-guy hackers) test the security level of a computer network whether wired or wireless.
The Power Pwn has an entire suite of hacking software built in, for testing Wi-Fi, ethernet, and Bluetooth. You can add an optional 3G/GSM adapter whcih is compatible with SIM cards from AT&T, Vodafone, Oragne and GSM carriers in 160 countries. The Power Pwn was partially funded by DARPA, which has a vested interest in protecting the governments networks, but with a pre-order price of nearly $1300, this might make the non-government regular person shy away.
Of its many specs it also includes 16GB of internal disk space, has a fully automated NAC/802.1x/RADIUS bypass. All 8 outlets are fully functional. It is preloaded with Debian 6, Metasploit, SET, Fast-Track, w3af, Kismet, Aircrack, SSLstrip, nmap, Hydra, dsniff, Scapy, Ettercap, Bluetooth/VoIP/IPv6 tools and more.
Technology keeps getting smaller and cheaper, especially that of HD cameras and video equipment. What a great merging of technology when you can take an RC airplane and put a virtually feather light 720p camera on board to record video. That's exactly what I've done with my Twinstar II Brushless Lipo RC airplane, in this case the 808 #18 720p keychain HD camera, which is known as the Car Keys Micro Camera. The 808 has been around for a few years, but they have become more refined and the price is hard to beat. Check out the video at the end that demonstrates this gem of a camera. It also has video out support.
Do you cringe when you see people taking pictures and shooting videos with their modern cameras vertically? Well don't despair there is hope! Maria and Fafa talk about the Vertical Video Syndrome in this PSA video and what you should do. Hopefully after this you have some sense of action on this very serious problem world-wide.
