Todd Cochrane Interviews Danica Patrick

I was invited as a special guest by my sponsor GoDaddy to the Gatorade 400 held at the Michigan International Speedway. While there I was scheduled to do a 10 minute interview with Danica Patrick, sadly the heavy rains precluded a more formal stand up interview but she was gracious enough to do the interview with the two of us in a SUV next to her motor coach. The interview was recorded on my iPhone and I think it came out better than the 5 grand of video gear I had hauled to Michigan. I missed the most important question on whether she would consider doing a Podcast down the road. But I hope you enjoy the short interview and thank you to all that submitted questions.

D-Link AC3200 Ultra Wi-Fi Router

D-Link LogoWith wifi routers and access points, there’s a subtle game of one-upmanship based on the number of aerials sprouting from the device. If unit has only one aerial or it’s embedded in the unit, it probably comes free from the broadband or cable provider; two aerials is soooo 11g, three aerials and the router’s got some chops; six aerials….now you’re getting serious. Todd gets up to speed with the AC3200 Ultra Wi-Fi router from Daniel Kelley, VP at D-Link.

The AC3200 is a serious piece of kit. To start with, it looks like something straight out of a sci-film, a red stealth fighter fully armed with six laser cannon. And while the laser cannon are really aerials, you get the point – it means business. The AC3200 is a tri-band router using one set of frequencies in the 2.4 GHz range and two sets in the 5 GHz. It intelligently assesses the bandwidth and QoS (Quality of Service) demands of the connecting devices and allocates them to the most appropriate channels, and if necessary, can aggregate all three bands giving a maximum theoretical transfer rate of 3.2 Gb/s. No matter that the actual data rate will be much lower, it’s still screaming fast.

Additionally, the AC3200 uses beam-forming technology to focus the wifi signal to where it’s needed, rather than transmitting uniformly everywhere. On the wired side, there are four gigabit ethernet ports and two USB ports (one USB3, one USB2) for connecting up storage (DLNA server built-in) or printers. The AC3200 can be the hub of a connected home.

The AC3200 Ultra Wi-Fi Router (aka DIR-890L/R) is available now on-line for around $300. It’s pricey, but you get what you pay for.

Marantz PMD-901V Body Cam

MarantzPro

Action cams are great but if we’re really honest, half the attraction is the lifestyle, “You too can be as cool as these fit and good-looking guys and gals that ski off scarily large drops.” Yeah, right. Back in the real world, Marantz Pro have announced the PMD-901V (PDF), a GPS-enabled HD body cam. Jamie and Nick discuss with Eric Palonen how the Marantz camera becomes the objective observer in every day life.

The 901V is aimed at public employees, emergency responders and trades who need a record of their daily activities. Attached to the user’s clothing using a swivel clip, the camera can record up to 10 hours of audio and HD video to 32 GB of  internal tamper-proof storage. The camera is perfect for capturing life; wide-angle 140° field of view, waterproof (30 minutes at 1 m), wide operating temperature (-40 °C to 60 °C) and one-handed operation. There’s a 30 second pre and post recording buffer to ensure that critical moments are captured and footage can be marked as important as it’s being recorded so that’s it’s flagged when the recording is transferred off the camera.

The PMD-901V will be available in Spring 2015 for $499.99 from Marantz Professional stockists.
