Rogue Wallet - The Kevlar Carbon Fiber Wallet with WalletGuard Review

I like high tech wallets so this wallet by Rogue Wallet caught my eye. The Rogue Wallet Kevlar Carbon Fiber Wallet is not your average wallet. The wallet is made of a special spectra carbon fiber sail cloth.

The wallet is made of carbon fiber sail cloth which is the same material used for high performance racing yachts. The wallet is strong and waterproof. The interior you will find top grade black leather. The wallet uses RFID-blocking technology to protect your credit card information from getting out. Identity theft is on the right as of late as well unauthorized credit card use. Rogue Wallet provides that extra protection for you wallet using their technology called WalletGuard.

I have to say this Kevlar Carbon Fiber Wallet is very different looking wallet. The wallet feels tough and provides protection with their WalletGuard technology. The Kevlar Carbon Fiber Wallet would make an awesome gift for a husband, boyfriend, or brother this holiday season.

Rogue Wallet - Natural Dry Milled Leather Black Review

The wallet is something you carry everyday so you want one that you really like. Rogue Wallet makes front pocket wallets using all kinds of designs and textures. Their new 2011 wallets are some of the best available. Here I review the Rogue Wallet - Natural Dry Milled Leather Black.

Every guy wants a wallet that feels upscale and real nice quality. Rogue Wallet cases are made of the best materials and backed by a 2 year guarantee. The new Natural Dry Milled Leather has a natural texture of a top grain cowhide. The Napa Leather which I also reviewed has a slightly smoother texture. Both are high quality wallets that I would recommend.

I always carry my wallet in my front pocket so I like that Rogue Wallet caters to my needs. The Naturally Dry Milled Wallet by Rogue Wallet is one better luxury wallets I have carried around. I highly recommend this wallet to anyone who wants a nice looking wallet that is built to last.

Rogue Wallet - Napa Leather Review

I was never a fan of wearing my wallet in my back pocket. That's why I love Rogue Wallet's Front Pocket wallets. The wallets come in a ton of different styles, textures and colors. I had a chance to check out their new wallets and here is my review.

The Rogue Wallet Napa Leather is one of their more upscale models. The Napa Leather is made of quality leather that has a smooth texture made from high quality vegetable tanned materials. The wallet comes in Napa Black, Tan, Dark Brown and Cognac Brown. The wallet is full featured including a slot for a license, 3 credit cards, and interior pocket for everything else. The wallet is slim and thin that you won't know that the wallet is even in your pocket.

The Rogue Wallet Napa Leather Wallet is a really nice wallet that would make a perfect gift. This wallet has the feel of luxury. The Wallet is $50 and comes with a 2 year guarantee.

Samsung Essential Indestructible microSDHC Card with adapter by Memory Card Zoo Review

Just yesterday I step on a headphone cord and it broke. I'm sure many people have bought things only to have it break very easily. When ask to review an Indestructible microSDHC Cards I jumped at the chance.

The microSDHC card I am reviewing is made by Samsung and sold by Memory Card Zoo. The card looks like your ordinary microSDHC card. It is an 8GB Class 6 microSDHC Card with adapter. The card is advertised as water proof, shock proof, and magnet proof.

Now I performed several tests such as:
Drop it in a cup of water
Hit is with a meat mallet
Rest it on a magnet
Run over it with an SUV
Bury it
Leave it out in the rain
Step on it with a boot

The microSDHC card worked like advertised. This SD card can take a licking and keep on ticking. This microSDHC card is tough enough to take some punishment and still work like normal. After I tested the SD card I tested it in my PC and loaded maps on it and tested it with my GPS without lag.

You can preorder the 8GB for £12.95 or 16GB for £27.50 at Memory Card Zoo HERE

iOS 5 released today...but

iOS 5 has been released today only to find that very few can update. That is because everyone is getting errors when they try to update to the new OS. When I try to download iOS5 I get a error 3200 message. This apparently is a server verification error on Apple's part. Apparently Apple can't handle the congestion of everyone trying to download the new OS. Apple keeps on making mistakes post Steve Jobs.

iPad Mini could be a cheaper tablet to compete with Kindle Fire

Could Apple create a game changer with a new low cost Ipad Mini Tablet. This tablet could be in the $200 range and have less features than the Ipad 3. AppleInsider seems to think that it would be made with cheaper parts but not downsize the screen. Although Steve Jobs slammed 7 inch tablets, Tim Cook hasn't so he could release a 7 inch tablet without any problems.
