  • Plan V Uses 9V Batteries To Charge Your Phone

    David Ponce
    25 Nov 2014 | 10:49 pm
    You may not know it, but there’s likely a drawer somewhere in your home where you keep all kinds of odds and ends that you need around the house. Screws, butterfly fasteners, IKEA wrenches, a hammer, and probably a couple 9V batteries for your smoke detector. Well it turns out if you get the Plan V, they’ll have another potential use: charging your phone. Plan V is a tiny dongle that takes a 9V battery and uses its power to charge your mobile device. It’s great if the power is out for an extended period and you really need to charge it. Or if you’re out somewhere and…
  • Confessions of a Coffee Addict

    Like most of you, I’m a coffee addict and love to carry my java with me. The problem with most cuppa joe’s is that they don’t provide for instant gratification, aka brewing on the go. The Nomad Coffee Maker rectifies the situation by being this portable maker that taken in the coffee filter on one end and dispenses the brew into the other (or any cup/container). Practical in its approach, the design also includes a USB connection to power the maker via your laptop or wall socket. Very Clever!Read more at Yanko Design…

    26 Nov 2014 | 6:45 am
    There's been a lot of talk around the net recently about the Incipio Feather case for the iPhone 6. It's lightweight, priced reasonably, and available in eight different colors. It's a perfectly nice iPhone 6 case, but it's certainly not the thinnest case around. On Incipio's site, the Feather case is listed as 1.524mm thick. That's certainly nothing to scoff at, but if you're looking for the absolute thinnest iPhone cases, there are plenty of options that are a fraction of the Incipio Feather's thickness.

Lingerie brand Victoria’s Secret has jumped aboard the wearable tech bandwagon this time around, where they are selling a new sports bra for approximately $75, and this sports bra comes with integrated electrodes which will hook up to a heart rate monitor.Since the integrated technology remains hidden from view, it is a whole lot more aesthetically pleasing compared to the slew of plastic wristbands that are an eyesore, which have made up the early…

    It’s a cliché of so many movies: nervous girl walking back to her car in the dark, clutching her keys in her hands as if she’ll manage to fend of a would-be attacker with them. Maybe that works in the movies but in real life, it wouldn’t hurt to have something like the Yoogo keychain instead. Its special shape lets you securely grab it, while allowing some portions of it to stick out between your fingers. This both protects your hand in case you have to defend yourself, while inflicting a little more damage to your assailant. It’s not quite a brass knuckle, so we…

That aside, this is one awesome leash. The alien is made of airbrushed foam, and the harness ties up with velcro. It fits smallish dogs, ranging between 15-35 pounds in size. It’s also pretty darn expensive at $150, but we bet you’ll be the only one in the neighbourhood with something like this and are likely to be quite the hit at the dog…

It allows you to find and save recipes you want to make from sites like Serious Eats, Epicurious, Cooks Illustrated, New York Times, Gourmet, Eating Well, Real Simple, Whole Foods, and more.

My first inclination was to say no — I’m in the business of reviewing apps, not advising people who make money from them — but then I found out that it was a free app designed to help fight Ebola, so I couldn’t say no. Neither could Amazon. Brothers Malan and Philip Joubert dropped by and explained how their app, Ebola Care, can help health care workers in affected West African…
  • Survey finds parents mostly OK with kids’ use of tech

The study, Parenting in the Digital Age, which was conducted for FOSI by Hart Research, is based on an October, 2014 national survey of 584 parents of children age six to 17 who access the Internet.

  • Amazon's Fire Phone Slashed From $649 to $199 Unlocked With No Contract

    26 Nov 2014 | 3:00 am
    We praised a few elements of Amazon's Fire Phone in our review earlier in the year, but one thing kept us from falling head over heels: the steep price of entry. With mid-range specifications and no access to Google Play, the Fire Phone is a unique creature that serves a smaller market. Some of the innovations on it are worthy of laud, but

Sure, laptops these days last a little longer than they did ten years ago, but much of that is due to processors and the like consuming far less power now compared to yesteryear.

Perhaps they're not as much of a fashion faux pas as Google Glass, but there's definitely a stigma about them.

    You don’t need to be Huey Lewis to be singing about going back in time. You don’t even need to be The News. You just need to be wearing this Back to the Future Flux Capacitor Watch. Modeled after Doc Brown’s flux capacitor, this watch takes it out of the DeLorean and puts it on your wrist. It’s made of stainless steel, just like a DeLorean. Unlike a DeLorean it won’t time travel if you hit 88mph. It does have a “time travel” mode though. Press the button to activate “time travel” mode and the watch goes haywire, the Flux Capacitor starts…

Use Soba’s ortex tubing to easily tie, add, and subtract cables. What is it exactly? Soba is a zippable sheaf used to hold your myriad wires for power supplies, your bevy of HDMI and other visual/audio cables (dare I say three-wire component) in a streamlined, sharp looking Vortex tube.

    At one point in Star Trek’s evolution the flip-phone communicator was extended by a Federation insignia badge on the uniform that when pressed could cue up a conversation between other members of the star ship wearing their own device, and that logic has led to OnBeep’s Onyx.

Yes, it is on Kickstarter and yes the name is Carvey. This device is pure genius, though little thought must have been left to the actual naming of this Inventable from Inventables. For graphic designers making custom figurines, statues, signs, and other works of art with 3D printers, the addition of a Carvey could allow them to build innumerable visions and…

The house and all of its domestic treasures, a vintage 1964 Godzilla action figure that guarded an Amazing Spiderman # 21 comic book encased in UV protective plastic, was ripe for the picking. It seems that one of the other prevalent ways that a break-in occurs is with the simple kicking in…

    There's been a lot of talk around the net recently about the Incipio Feather case for the iPhone 6. It's lightweight, priced reasonably, and available in eight different colors. It's a perfectly nice iPhone 6 case, but it's certainly not the thinnest case around. On Incipio's site, the Feather case is listed as 1.524mm thick. That's certainly nothing to scoff at, but if you're looking for the absolute thinnest iPhone cases, there are plenty of options that are a fraction of the Incipio Feather's thickness.

    26 Nov 2014 | 10:30 am

The pills contain 100% all-nature ingredients (i.e. fennel, blueberries and seaweed) and cost €10 (~£8, ~$12.50) per jar of 60 pills. Obviously, I recommend taking at least two bottles before sitting down to Thanksgiving dinner. Mr Poincheval said he came up with the idea for the pills one evening when he was enjoying a hearty meal with some friends. "Our farts were so smelly we were nearly…

Usually we can connect just fine, but hostel and hotel Wi-Fi is usually horrible, or ridiculously overpriced. Likewise, roaming fees can crush an otherwise normal phone balance, leaving even the most careful of us wondering how we managed to pull up such an outrageous bill.

See if I learn anything. I set it for French. I wanted to learn French so I could read the advertising posts on Facebook from Safari Alto, a camper manufacturer from Montreal, Canada. It was a humble goal, especially since they usually provide an English translation. To be fair, I speak Spanish pretty well and took a semester of Latin in college, so this is the third time I’ve tackled a language. Some of…

Angry Birds are for little kids now, and he took off all the stickers. Even though we gave him some Goo Gone, there was still some horrible, sticky residue. The residue stayed there and we pretty much resigned ourselves to a disgusting computer until my husband tried a Magic Eraser on it. The result was… magical, to say the least. We couldn’t believe how well it worked to remove the dirt AND the sticky residue. If you are dealing with sticker goo on your…

While I was personally aware of independence on the Internet (I’ve been a Firefox user for a long time), I truly did not comprehend the importance of this subject.  Last night on my flight out to Mountain View (thru SFO), I watched The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin and this reinforced independent thinking as it pertains to global currency.

    From the level of press coverage, it’s very easy to think that the only smartphones on the market have huge screens and price tags to match. If it’s not an iPhone 6 Plus or Nexus 6, it’s not worth talking about. Contrary to the column inches, there’s a wide selection of phones that have smaller screens for less cash which still offer a great deal. Which brings us to the Huawei Ascend Y550 4G Android smartphone. Let’s take a look. The Huawei Ascend Y550 doesn’t stray too far from the “black slab” formula: 4.5″ screen on the front, camera in…

  • The Amazing Extent of Bono's Injuries in His Central Park Bike Crash

    Dave Aiello
    20 Nov 2014 | 6:51 am
    When I read about what happened to Bono in his Central Park bike crash, it makes me think of all of the terrible crashes that happen in pro cycling, and how lucky many cyclists have been to not be catastrophically injured. The headlines I saw in first reports were things like "Bono Injures Arm in Central Park Bike Accident, Requires Surgical Repair". But the surgeries he required were much more extensive than what the headlines indicated. Rolling Stone says: While riding his bike through New York's Central Park on Sunday, the singer attempted to avoid another rider and was involved in what…

    Last night the National Hockey League paid its respects to the people of Ottawa, which experienced a devstating terrorist attack on Canada's National War Memorial and its Parliament Building by playing the Canadian National Anthem at all games, which is not normally the protocol. During the playing of O Canada at the Pittsburgh Penguins - Philadelphia Flyers game at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh, I noticed the Penguins were using small LCD displays on the neck of the microphone that Jeff Jimerson was using during his performance.

    If you haven't read Jean-Louis Gassée's post called BlackBerry: The Endgame, I'd really recommend reading it. The article talks about the missteps that Research In Motion / BlackBerry Limited took since the introduction of the iPhone that have lead to a spectatular loss in the value of their business. .... In reality, RIM was much more than three years behind iOS (and, later, Android). Depending on whom we listen to, the 2007 iPhone didn't just didn't stand on a modern (if incomplete) OS, it stood on 3 to 5 years of development, of trial and error........

    Yesterday I talked about the Chinese regulatory delays that created the conditions necessary for a gray market in iPhone 6 and 6 Plus devices to flourish. I felt like this information added context to Casey Neistat's film, and was worthy of a full blog post here. Some other prominent bloggers agreed. For instance, my post was discussed in a full article on The Loop. This greatly helped get the ideas I expressed into the larger discussion about Neistat's film, which I greatly appreciated. I think you can raise issues like the delayed network access license in the People's Republic of China…

    Casey Neistat created a 6 1/2 minute film called Black Market Takes Over the iPhone 6 Lines that shows portions of what happened at the Apple Store SoHo and other Apple stores in Manhattan on the day before and the day of the iPhone 6 release. The film focuses on a number of people of Asian descent who do not appear to speak English waiting in line to purchase iPhones. The purchase pattern illustrated was that these buyers bought iPhones (presumably unlocked models) for cash and then, almost immediately and in the vicinity of the Apple Store, apparently sold these phones to other people for…

    The prestigious James Dyson award for new inventions always gives us a chance to get a glimpse of some gadgets that could go on to change to the world. This year’s winner could help to save the lives of some of the most vulnerable babies in the world. That’s because it is the prototype of an inflatable incubator for premature babies. The man behind it is called James Roberts and he is a graduate from Loughborough University. The incubator is called Mom and it would cost a lot less to produce than traditional incubators.

    The battle for mobile phone generated taxi business continues to see more apps produced. While Uber is the most well-known of the apps, a new start-up called Maaxi could be set to shake up the industry. This new app is aimed at black cab taxi drivers in London and is designed to let them compete against the likes of Uber and Hailo. The idea behind Maaxi is that a maximum of 5 people who plan on travelling in the same direction can share a taxi and split the fare between them. Of course, there is also the option to ride along for those who prefer to travel in that way. The Licensed Taxi…
  • No New Nintendo 3DS for Christmas

    The release of the brand new Nintendo 3DS / 3DS XL in Asian markets made it seem certain that Brits and Americans would also be able to buy one this Christmas as well. However, the word from the Japanese gaming giant is that there will be no release of the new version of the gaming device in the UK or the US this year. It might seem obvious that the new Nintendo 3Ds should get released everywhere that people might want to buy it. Having said that, the firm confirms that sales of the original 3DS are still high enough in the UK and the US for them to keep on selling it over the festive period.
  • Will the Apple Smart Watch be Launched for Valentine’s Day?

    Rumours are growing that the Apple smart watch could be set for release in early 2015. In fact, some experts suggest that it could be in the shops for Valentine’s Day. While the middle of February isn’t usually the best month for gadget sales, Apple has taken advantage of the rush to buy gifts for loved ones in the past. For example, their pink models and their iOS storage devices have previously been launched at this time of year. However, this information appears to have come from a joke. An insider at Apple is said to have leaked the information that the tech firm will be “lucky”…

    Apple is turning to Samsung for more parts in future production runs of the iPhone 6, sources tell Business Korea. Beginning this week, new runs will reportedly use batteries manufactured by Samsung SDI. More significantly, though, Apple is said to be considering replacing Toshiba TLC NAND flash storage with a Samsung equivalent. Toshiba NAND is currently believed to be the only kind used in 128GB iPhones, and some reports have linked it to occasional device crashes. Toshiba, SanDisk, and SK Hynix are allegedly producing the storage for 64GB models....

Jussi bagged the prestigious Braun Prize, while the Asian team has bagged the Red Dot Awards. To be honest I love them both, because of their practical approach at guiding lay people in first aid.Read more at Yanko Design…
  • In The Mood For A New Laptop?

    Love this refreshing design for a laptop by Antoine Beynel. It’s got that sexy aluminum finish and neat keys on the keyboard.

  • New Skin … Faster Than Ever

    25 Nov 2014 | 3:54 am
    The ReSkin Device is an innovative medical tool that can help burn victims make recovery faster with the help of skin grafts. Essentially, stem cells are harvested and then made to grow as skin in a special incubator. This special formula is then sprayed onto the victim requiring the graft. The time taken for the initial process is under two hours, which is significantly faster than the current methods. What is interesting is that the entire healing process takes about a week and is relatively painless. Super!Read more at Yanko Design…

  • Just Plug to Unplug – Booting Unwanted Users from Wireless Networks

    13 Nov 2014 | 8:06 pm
    Wireless networking is awesome, but it’s hard work to maintain and keep secure especially when you run a business like a cafe or you have many friends coming in and out of your house. One too many users slowing down or even snooping in on your wireless traffic isn’t cool, but now with Cyborg Unplug you can boot them. The Unplug was created by Julian Oliver, the famous coder who wrote the script, which whole purpose was to kick Google Glass users from WiFi networks. Functioning with the same principle, simply plug the Unplug to kick out those unwanted trespassers.

This was primarily due to the Internet. The internet rendered the traditional concept of writing letters almost obsolete. However, the same internet has now created a business opportunity that has been valued at almost 9 billion dollars for the same sector it almost destroyed a few years ago.

I love the swooping look of this prehistoric Batmobile and I'm somewhat sad it didn't have the opportunity to star in its own series. Preferably in black & white. With gangsters. The minimum bid price is $112,500, but the auction house is expecting the final price to be significantly…

Alfredo took the time to capture a typical working day for Mr Cinquetti on video. The result is a nod to the past and a reminder that in a few short years none of the original Revox technicians from the 1960s and 1970s will be around. Sadly, few want to learn their craft and there's a real risk that decades of technical knowledge will vanish moments after the last puff of solder smoke from the old…

I'm the father of a young child, which means I've suffered through dozens of episodes of Dora the Explorer, whose target demographic seems to be acid tripping bilingual preschoolers. I don't think children genuinely like this kind of show, they just accept it because they don't know any better and parents think it's safe. The simple truth is that kids crave real cartoons.

Build Quality The ATV520 comes in a cardboard box that looks nothing as nice or fancy as the Apple TV. We have to face the facts here, Apple spend a lot of time designing their delivery packages and it shows. MyGica though, ship their unit in a regular white and orange, generic looking box, that reminds pretty much everyone that the actual unit inside is made in China and will run Android.

I don’t know if it was the reassuring report that came with every key stroke, or the ding as you got to the end of a line, or the delightful clunk of carriage return – or a combination of all of the above. At any rate, it was faster than handwriting, but slower and…

    Scotland's Albatern is putting a new, modular spin on renewable energy generation. WaveNET is a scalable array of floating "Squid" generator units that harvest wave energy as their buoyant arms rise and fall with the motion of the waves. Each Squid can link up to as many as three others, effectively creating a large, floating grid that's flexible in every direction. The bigger this grid gets, the more efficient it becomes at harvesting energy, and the more different wave movements it can extract energy from. Albatern's 10-year target is to have 1.25 kilometer-long floating energy farms…

    Old people get such a bad rap when it comes to mobile devices that you’d think every invention of note was made by someone under 20 years. But the digital age which has spawned smartphones and tablets, especially tablets, has also spawned a lot of confusion — hence there is a huge market for those over 50 (and 60 and 70) who’d appreciate a tablet that didn’t try to prove how “cool” it was and instead focused on letting them DO things. That’s the rationale — and it’s a good one — behind the RealPad. And having it put out by AARP, the org for folks who’ve hit the…

    Asus Transformer Pads used to be marketed as a premium alternative to Apple’s iPad.

There’s a bog-standard 1,280 x 800-resolution IPS display, a 2-megapixel camera at the rear and a 1.2-megapixel…
