Hey everyone! Make sure you check out our review of the Star Wars Stormtrooper 2GB Mimobot. It is a pretty cool little flash drive, here is a quote from the review…
“Designer flash drives have been around for quite a while and Mimobot has been one of the top names when it comes to cool designer flash drives. They have quite a few cool flash drives that have their own interesting designs. Their line of licensed flash drives includes Hello Kitty, Star Wars, Halo, Domo, and Happy Tree Friends. Of course when they asked us if we wanted to review a drive we picked Star Wars. They were nice enough to send us their Stormtrooper Unmasked 2GB drive. It is called Unmasked because you have a 50/50 change of receiving Han or Luke. Read on to see which drive we received!” Read On…

One of the most frustrating things about going to a B.Y.O.C. (Bring your own computer) LAN event is having to carry your system from the car to the setup area. This can be particularly exhausting if the setup area is a great distance away from the entrance to the building, a prime example, PAX Prime 2010 in Seattle, with the BYOC up on the 6th level of the convention. Trying to carry my system on my shoulder and my monitor in the other hand was a most exhausting experience, not to mention uncomfortable as it was a very warm day and left me sweating for a good 20 minutes after reaching the line. Today I take a look at the solution to my problems, the Antec Lanboard. While wandering around PAX, I stopped by the Antec booth and saw this item sitting on display, instantly knowing I had to try it out. As soon as I got home and set up my computer, I was on Antec’s website ordering this to my doorstep.
