The Samsung Galaxy SIV will be launched next week, March 14, at Radio City Music Hall in New York. As of this writing, the Samsung S IV’s features hasn’t been revealed to anybody. A blog in New York Times, reveals the special event next week in New York will be mostly on software, not hardware.
An exclusive leaked images or screenshots of the new Samsung Galaxy S IV is posted in an Israeli website. Here are some of them:
Is there a way to check if the USB drive or Flash memory card (SD card, miniSD, microSD, Memory Stick, etc.) you bought is fake? Can you tell the difference between a genuine device from a counterfeit?
Prices of memory and USB drives are insanely low specially on online stores. Just browse on eBay and you will see a lot of these devices, mostly from China. I’m not saying that all products from China are fake or fraud, but a number in devices in low price range are too good to be true.
Note, that 90% of my y gadgets here on top of my table right were all made from China and I diligently test them if the description posted on the seller’s website is exactly what the product is capable of. Sometimes, the description doesn’t match what is being advertised so I just have to balance my choices. Will I keep the product or should I send it back to the seller? What I usually do is just to keep the product and give a negative feedback on the seller, if they don’t want to keep their replacement warranty.
So what will you do if you are having doubts on the USB or Flash memory card you bought? Here’s what you can do:
1. The easiest way is to check the product against what is shown on the product list of the original manufacturer. If there’s no existing product from the site of the original manufacturer, it obviously fake. In fact, you need to do this step even before placing your order.
2. Internally, you can’t tell the difference between a counterfeit and a genuine USB or memory cards. However, there’s already a tool you can use. Download H2testw from this site: Read more…

Is there actually an all-in-one headset for different devices? Well, the answer is none.
Perhaps in the near future when all gadget manufacturers will be united and agree in one design of the headset.
Well, my problem was like this. I love listening to music ( I think everybody does). I listen to my collection of songs in my laptop every time I work. I was using a headset that came in the box with my laptop which we bought from Hong Kong. I’m also using this headset for my skype chat and when watching movies too.
However, I’m switching to another headset every time I want music to accompany me in my jogging routines. I’m using my smartphone that doubles as an MP3 player.
My laptop and the smartphone I’m using have different plugs for the headset and so I used to have two headsets. This was where my dilemma comes in. Sometimes, no, not sometimes but often I forgot which is which. I’m using the same brand of headsets but the plugs are different even if they look identical. One has smaller plug which according to the box that comes with it has 2.5mm in diameter while the other one is 3.5mm.
Wait… I just want to make it clear that Xiaomi is not running on iOS but it uses Android as it’s operating system. So I guess, I should have titled this post “the best alternative to Samsung [write the model here]“, since most Samsung smartphones are running in Android. Or, better yet, the title should have been “the best alternative to any smartphone”.
To tell you frankly, I was excited when this phone was announced in one of the online shopping forums I was monitoring. Simply because of two things: Features and Price.
Yes, believe me, Xiaomi will beat any other smartphones feature by feature, when it was launched. It’s the first Chinese phone to sport a 1.5GHz dual-core chip.
