Latest Video – Our Segment from 04/21/2014


In this segment from KMSB Fox 11 Daybreak, We featured a couple of products which might be a nice idea for Mothers Day. While we had some of the TechtalkRadio Staff snicker and tell me I was off on the Keyboard as a gift , a few female friends have gone so far to tell me if I gave them a keyboard they would smack me over the head with it.

This is until of course that I show them what the Logitech Harmony keyboard is capable of and after a few minutes and a demo I am assured I won’t get rapped over the head with the keyboard.

While giving a keyboard to your wife or girlfriend might not be the thing during Valentines, hopefully Mom won’t get upset and enjoy the keyboard which integrates with the Media Center found common in many homes and eliminate 4 or 5 different remotes!

There was no argument when it came to the Asus MeMo Pad 7 HD which offers a variety of colors, including Hot Pink, and at a price point below $150, delivers with great looking video and features for mobile users. Again, showed this to a few of my female friends and they loved not only the tech element of the Asus Memo Pad 7 HD but also one of the apps called Mirror, which can be used to check makeup (The Forward Facing Camera). Front and Rear Cameras and not to huge, this is also a nice idea for Mom who has been wanting a tablet.

Take a look at the segment from Daybreak with Mark Stine of KMSB Fox 11.

Just how much does that Samsung Galaxy S5 Cost?

Last Friday, April 11th 2014, The Samsung Galaxy S5 was made available to the public. While the newest smartphone in the Galaxy line carries a individual price tag of around 650.00,  the components used to build the features of the Samsung Galaxy S5 have been calculated to about 256 bucks.

A tear down of the Samsung Galaxy S5 was conducted by the Teardown Mobile Handsets Intelligence Service at IHS Technology (NYSE: IHS).  The tear down group took a look at the cost of the materials such as the  WTR1625 radio frequency (RF) transceiver , the PMC8974 power management chip and the core processor, all from Qualcomm and generally improvements and updates to the previous Galaxy model. New features and faster speeds generally mean an increase in cost to build.

The numbers presented by IHS only indicate the projected cost to build a Samsung Galaxy S5 and the model used included a television receiver as this tear down unit came from South Korea. This estimate doesn’t include software, licensing and other royalties and cost.

The report from IHS also looked at comparative reports for previous tear downs including the Apple iPhone 5S which was estimated to cost 207.00.

TechtalkRadio received a sample Samsung Galaxy S5 for testing from AT&T and while it took me a few days to completely put down my iPhone 5, I am enjoying the experience. I’ll have more to report in a couple of days. Are you using the Samsung Galaxy S5? What are your thoughts!
