Posted by Charbax – June 5, 2012

Here's a 15 minute interview of me filmed by the Novacut guys using multiple high quality DSLR camera angles (you can watch it in 1080p!). I'm showing off some of the latest gadgets that I found in Shenzhen, I talk about why and how I video-blog from all the worlds consumer electronics trade shows since 2004, and I announce my next big feature on which is a $20/year Membership system to get access to buy all the best gadgets that I find at the trade shows all over the world, sourcing directly from the factories in Shenzhen and to get access to scans or pictures of the business cards of the people/distributors/suppliers that I video-interview (great for the buyers from around the world watching my videos and interested in having the best contact informations to the companies that I film). Look forward to the $20/year Membership system to be launched here in the days to come if I can find enough time to set it up while video-blogging here at Computex until June 10th.

Here's a link to buy it for $70 on Amazon:

FXI Cotton Candy availability status interview

Posted by Charbax – May 14, 2012 published this interview with FXI Tech about the status of shipments for their awesome Exynos4 powered HDMI stick product.

Something to do with FXI adding USB host to the design causing some of the delay. Hopefully they start shipping in Scandinavia this month, and to all other pre-orders during the summer. I'd like to see this form factor mass manufactured and sold for around $69 retail and not $199. See the TI OMAP4 powered Always Innovating HDMI stick alternative where it's said the BOM cost for such a platform may be as low as $30.


Here's my video of the FXI Tech HDMI stick:

Valueplus TizzBird Stick N1

Posted by Charbax – March 6, 2012

Using the new Telechips 8925 ARM Cortex-A5 processor platform, here's the new computer/set-top-box on a USB Stick, with a full sized HDMI port on one side, a full sized USB Host port on the other, a Micro-USB port for power, MicroSD card slot, that's it. Valueplus plans for a sub-$100 retail price, my guess is that the Bill of Materials for something like this can be done below $30 if mass manufactured. The market for these ARM Powered HDMI Sticks is going to be huge! Imagine a fully smoother Chrome on Android 4.0, a fully smooth Google TV user interface, this is awesome.
