In My Own Words:
I'm a PhD candidate in the Department of Political Science at the University of Victoria. My research interests focus on how privacy (particularly informational privacy,expressive privacy and accessibility privacy) is affected by digitally mediated surveillance, and the normative implications that such surveillance has in (and on) contemporary Western political systems.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super cheap, works great, Jan. 25 2013
I was really happy with these. I've used the microSIM adaptor and after fiddling a bit the SIM was inserted without any problem. It's also easy to *remove* the SIM + Adaptor from my phone, which isn't always the case. Some adaptors, in my experience, are hard to remove and can damage the SIM tray. That's not a problem I've run into with this product.

I received my Slimport case earlier this week and I'm incredibly impressed. The magnets are strong enough to reliably keep the case closed while (of course) waking up the Nexus 7 whenever I open the case. The stand options are present, though there're not something that I'm terribly enthused about; while functional, the case doesn't quite keep the tablet up at an angle I find comfortable. I suspect this is largely personal preference though.

If I were buying another Nexus 7 case, I'd almost certainly buy this one again. The price/value ratio is absolutely awesome.

4.0 out of 5 stars A modest improvement, Jan. 25 2013
I've been a Fitbit advocate ever since getting my first ultra. The regular quantification of daily movement has been instrumental to increasing my daily exercise and shedding a whole lot of pounds. Whereas the Ultra relied on a base station to charge/receive information, the One uses Bluetooth 4.0 to communicate with iDevices, and comes with a small Bluetooth dongle so you can send data to Fitbit's servers via your computer. Plans are in the works to get the tracker to automatically sync with newer Android devices in the semi-near future.

A stated improvement of the One over the Ultra is the new rubberized case that you put the Fitbit One into. Older devices, such as the Ultra,… Read more
