    Be a real life James Bond with the Submarine Sports Car. This car really drives underwater! Got a body of water to cross? No problem, just drive this sports car into the water where it floats, then pull the lever to drop it into the depths of an underwater adventure. On land, this vehicle has a 54kW battery powered electric motor, allowing it hit speeds of 75mph. While that’s not super fast, you can easily outrun any other car by simply heading for the nearest lake, ocean, river, or pond and taking an underwater shortcut. You can’t do that in a Tesla (yet). The batteries are good…
  • Water level controller using arduino

  • Dunking Buddy Helps You Dunk Your Cookies

    20 Oct 2014 | 10:21 am
    Living in the first world sure seems to make it possible to think it’s necessary to design things like the Dunking Buddy. It’s a little gadget that helps you dunk your cookies in milk, because apparently holding them in your fingers is either too hard or too annoying. You could, after all, drop one in… and then that would be disastrous. So the Dunking Buddy attaches to the side of your glass with a magnet (with one part inside) and gives you a tiny plastic tray in which to place your sugary flour discs. That way the rampant danger of drowning cookies is mitigated, and…

    With Microsoft’s agreement with Nokia, we all knew that the Nokia brand name used on their smartphones would not be kept around forever. In fact Microsoft had slowly hinted that they would be shifting the branding away from Nokia and possibly replace it with Microsoft. There have also been leaks which revealed the Microsoft branding on a possible smartphone.

    David Ponce

    Apple could have made the iPhone 6 about a millimeter thicker and no one would have noticed. Instead, they made them this thin, and a camera sticks out the back like a sore thumb. On your back. Bravo, Apple, bravo. But regardless of how you feel about this potentially boneheaded decision, you might still want to keep your phone protected while taking advantage of the appreciated, but totally unnecessary, thinness. To this end, take a look at this case from Spigen. Made from polycarbonate and a discoloration-preventing urethane coating, this case is only 0.4mm thick. Less than half a…

    In the past we’ve declared one Android phone the best for most people, but we recognize that everyone has different priorities in a phone. And this year, the phone makers haven’t made it easier. The phone with the best screen doesn’t have the best battery life. The one with the best build quality has a subpar camera. The one with the removable battery and water-resistant chassis has a bloated, confusing interface and a plasticky body. So instead we’ll go through the Android phones we’d recommend, based on our own experiences and other people’s reviews. Which…

    19 Oct 2014 | 8:04 pm
    Apple Senior VP Craig Federighi When I first started playing around with Windows 8 laptops I wondered if Apple would ever follow suit with touch-screen Macs. But it turns out that the company has studied that question and has decided – at least for now — to stick with trackpads and keyboard for input.

    Hats off to Microsoft for its “Back to the Future” decision to release a new version of Windows that’s likely to be familiar to most users. Windows 10 is basically damage control for Microsoft. A couple of years ago, after years of research and development, the company released a radically different version of the world’s most popular computer operating system. Windows 8, which followed on the heels of the very successful Windows 7, was billed as a “reimagined operating system, from the chipset to the user experience,” that “introduces a totally new…

    Apple has released iOS 8.1, and with it comes a slew of new features for users of iOS devices.

The new Retina iMac starts with a 3.5GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 processor with two Thunderbolt 2 ports, 4 USB 3.0, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and a standard 1TB Fusion Drive.

But with the Leeo smart night light, even if your nearest neighbor is miles away, you'll be alerted to potential fires as soon as the alarm goes off.Read more...

  • iFixIt Chastises Apple For 'Breaking" The Flexible And Upgradeable Design Of Latest Mac Mini Model

    21 Oct 2014 | 2:33 am
    Apple has a history of trying to prevent owners of its products from mucking around inside its devices, and in case you thought the company turned over a new leaf with its Mac Mini system, think again. Though the previous model was relatively easy to service at home -- it scored an 8 out of 10 on iFixIt's teardown analysis -- the recently...

  • 2014 Nissan Titan PRO-4X and a Salute to Project Titan

    David Goodspeed
    20 Oct 2014 | 4:46 pm
    Some vehicle models just seem to come around often here in the GearDiary test driveway, and the Nissan Titan pickup seems to be one of them. I drove it when it first launched more than a decade ago, punished it on a wet off-road track in North Texas and most recently saw my third Titan in the past five years. 2014 Nissan Titan PRO-4X/Images courtesy Nissan Titan is probably the longest running model from any manufacturer that has not changed much since it launched. It arrived around the same time another Japanese automaker was bringing a fullsize pickup to market to compete with Detroit but…

    My synagogue’s executive director recently asked me to look into purchasing a conferencing device so Board members unable to attend our monthly meeting could still be part of the conversation. I’ll admit it never would have occurred to me to check out the IPEVO VX-1 Internet Conference Station were I not offered one for review. I was and am impressed.

    Michael Anderson

    This week Apple held its second product announcement meeting in as many months, this time focusing on the iPad and Mac and Mac OS X. While the September meeting featured the major announcements of large-screen iPhones and the Apple Watch, the October announcements were more subdued – but let’s focus on the disappointing Apple iPad announcements. As I mentioned, the event was about more than the iPad. Here are a few highlights: – OS X Yosemite was released into the wild. After using it for a day, I am totally in love. – A new ‘Retina iMac’ was released, with a…

  • Moto Hint Review: ​The First Bluetooth Headset I Wasn't Ashamed to Wear

    Brent Rose on Gizmodo, shared by Whitson Gordon to Lifehacker
    13 Oct 2014 | 11:48 am
    Bluetooth earpieces have always stuck out. I mean they've literally stuck out of your ear. Perhaps they're not as much of a fashion faux pas as Google Glass, but there's definitely a stigma about them. To combat the cyborg look, some wearable manufacturers are building smartwatches, but Motorola also has a backup plan: a tiny, handsome earbud that can act like a personal assistant.Read more...

    Be a real life James Bond with the Submarine Sports Car. This car really drives underwater! Got a body of water to cross? No problem, just drive this sports car into the water where it floats, then pull the lever to drop it into the depths of an underwater adventure. On land, this vehicle has a 54kW battery powered electric motor, allowing it hit speeds of 75mph. While that’s not super fast, you can easily outrun any other car by simply heading for the nearest lake, ocean, river, or pond and taking an underwater shortcut. You can’t do that in a Tesla (yet). The batteries are good…

Like a whale strains plankton through it’s mouth but lets water pass through, so does this Plankton Strainer. Food stays in, water stays out. Straining out water has never been so much fun. This creative kitchen accessory is made of plastic yet is boiling water resistant and dishwasher safe. It comes in green, blue, and gray just like real whales.

  • Haven’s Smarter Door Lock Puts the Deadbolt to Rest

    R.J. Huneke
    17 Oct 2014 | 7:26 am
    The smart TV, the smartphone, the smart (or stupid) motion action X-box, the smart thermostat, and yes, even the smart deadbolt all pale in comparison to the Haven’s “smarter” door lock in terms of home safety. The perpetrator subtly popped the front door’s deadbolt with ease, and then he was in. 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…

    The Mighty Mug is currently $62,000 over its Kickstarter goal for the coffee vessel that cannot be knocked over. You heard right, folks, the Mighty Mug refuses to go down, despite being slapped, knocked, or pushed by a sadistic hand trying to douse its Macbook’s keyboard in steaming liquid. How does that happen, you ask? It all begins with a story: What happens when an average coffee mug gets bit by a radioactive spider, no wait that’s something else, when an ordinary coffee mug meets Smartgrip technology? You get the sturdy Mighty Mug. Be shocked that this is on Kickstarter and not…

    You may not be a sports fan, but as a responsible parent or just a concerned citizen having a tiny, light sensor like the Jolt to monitor blows to the head during young athletes’ impact sports needs to be a mandatory part of the games. The Jolt Sensor is mere hours away from being funded on Kickstarter! In the wake of severe medical injuries, both short and long-term, in sports like American football in the NFL and their continued measures to protect the heads and brains of athletes, the Jolt seems like a no brainer (pun intended).

    Cory Doctorow
    18 Oct 2014 | 12:20 pm
    When you bought your Wii U, it came with one set of terms-of-service; now they've changed, and if you don't accept the changes, your Wii seizes up and won't work. That's not exactly what we think of when we hear the word "agreement." Yet this is how Nintendo's update to its end-user license agreement (EULA) for the Wii U works, as described by Youtube user "AMurder0fCrows" in this video. He didn't like the terms of Nintendo's updated EULA and refused to agree. He may have expected that, like users of the original Wii and other gaming consoles, he would have the option to refuse software or…

  • Booze flasks that look like NES cartridges

    Cory Doctorow
    13 Oct 2014 | 6:00 pm
    I bought one of these at New York Comic-Con this weekend -- it's a surprisingly good facsimile of an old NES cart; and the rubber stopper (rated to 10psi) performs better than it looks like it would. My only complaint is that it's a bit awkward to nip from directly, though it'd be fine with a straw. They've got five parodical "titles" to choose from (I got "Drunk Hunt"): Drunk Hunt, Castle-vodka, Super Bar-Hop Bros., Metal Beer, and Legend of Drink. The hardest thing about creating a concealable flask was where to put the cap. I think everyone on the Ink Whiskey team could attest to that.

  • Outerspace Gas Cloud Has Enough Alcohol To Keep Us Each Drunk On 300,000 Beers/Day For A Billion Years

    20 Oct 2014 | 2:30 pm
    In what may prove to be the most epic beer run of all time, scientists have determined that gas cloud G34.3 in the constellation Aquila has enough alcohol to provide 300,000 beers to every human on earth for a billion years. Obviously, I've already punched the cloud's coordinates into my spaceship's autopilot system and loaded the payload bay with junk food.

    The Suncast Yard Cart is rated 4.8 stars on Amazon. (And that’s the average of 124 reviews!) It is superior to a wheelbarrow for most of a homeowner’s purposes. It is easier to navigate (it’s pulled, not pushed), less tippy, less costly, lower-maintenance (no inflatable tire or rust-prone body), lighter (mostly plastic), less of a space hog, and less tiring (since none of the weight is borne by the shoulders). I’ve used it for collecting lawn clippings and yard debris. (It can also be used to bring grocery bags into the house from the car.) I’ve been pleased by all the features…

    There are lots of infant and toddler carriers out there to suit personal preferences. What makes this carrier special — and a big reason why it’s become our everyday go-to carrier for our 22 pound six-month old — is its unbelievably compact size and simplicity. Unlike other carriers like the Ergobaby and Babybjorn, when not in use our Bitybean carrier can be stuffed into a sack barely larger than a soft drink can. This means it can be easily slipped into a small diaper/travel bag, or even in our stroller’s cup holder. It’s there when we need it, out of the way…

In the past three years, I’ve got around Los Angeles primarily by bike, not just as a means of running errands, but of meeting up with interviewees for my podcast (Notebook on Cities and Culture), discovering new elements of the city to write about, and of simply exploring. In that same span of time, I’ve also visited and tried my best to understand other cities around the world, from Osaka to…

  • Portable Standing Desk

    Steven Teo
    20 Oct 2014 | 9:43 am
    You’ve probably noticed how standing desks are becoming more and more popular as it’s pretty obvious that so much sitting is bad for us. Refold has designed a cardboard standing desk that is both flexible and portable, as well as being completely affordable. The 100% recyclable desk folds up in seconds into a self-contained carrying case so you can either store it or tote it to another location. It weighs only 6.5 kg (or 14.3 lbs) so you can move it whenever you need to switch up where you work. A Portable, Flexible and Affordable Cardboard Standing Desk [Design Milk]

Perfect for small spaces, kids’ rooms, fire escape parties and folks who have recently moved (and require a versatile lighting object).

  • Easing Shipping Parcel Process

    Shipping a parcel can sometimes be more trouble than it’s worth — finding the right packaging, having to actually put clothes on to travel to the nearest post office, and the inevitable gargantuan queue. While ideas such as the UK’s Doddle have enabled commuters to simply drop off their parcels at the train station, a new app called Shyp lets users simply take a snap of their package to get it picked up and delivered straight from their home. The process of sending a package is boiled down to two simple steps. Users first take a picture of the items they want to send and upload it via…

    Music is definitely something that can motivate as well as inspire us, and there are many different modes of delivery when it comes to music. If you happen to feel that vinyl records give that kind of warmth in the music that CDs as well as lossless compression MP3s are unable to do so, and yet sit at the desk with a computer in front of you all day long simply because there is no way for you to lug a full sized turntable to the office. Here is a solution – with the $69.99 Revolution USB Turntable. The name itself more or less gives the game away, where you will be able to select from blue,…

Of course, some of us would prefer to keep our music listening experience as a private one, while others who are more of an extrovert would prefer to take it public. For those who happen to fall into the latter category, here is Sol Republic with their latest ultra portable, rugged Bluetooth speaker that is known as Punk.

    23 Sep 2014 | 2:55 pm
    A team from Istanbul University's Electrical and Electronic Engineering department have created an electric car that travelled 2500 kilometres with just $17 worth of electricity. They are driving it around Turkey to test it in all sorts of road and weather conditions. With petrol in Turkey costing about $2.18 per litre, going the same distance in a regular car would cost anywhere between $275-$450 depending on fuel efficiency! The "T-1" can do 500 Km on only 4 hours of charge. It weighs 500 Kg and can reach speeds of 130 Km/h. More info at…

    I downloaded Duolingo quite a while ago. It was a game. It acts like a game. It looks like a game. I set it up for only five minutes a day. I thought, I’ll play this for a while. 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…

  • Magic Eraser Works Like Magic

    My boy put Angry Bird stickers all over his computer when we first gave it to him. He is no longer obsessed with Angry Birds. 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…

It’s like Napoleon Dynamite said, Girls only want boyfriends who have great skills. It’s true, so if you’re thinking that all this time you spend learning how to code is wasted on us girls, it’s NOT. We notice when you use a quick keyboard shortcut instead of the menu. We notice when you can type 70 wpm. We notice and to be honest, it makes us feel a little flushed. PostSecret‘s beneficiary…

    23 Sep 2014 | 8:06 am
    It’s an exciting time for the advertising and marketing technology world.  WPP recently acquired up to 25% of Appnexus, Millennial Media just acquired Nexage, and Mozilla recently announced it was entering the advertising landscape (self promotion, I know). I’ve participated in this ecosystem for a while now and have some big hairy questions for us all going forward.  I think we should spend some time trying to think these questions through as an industry because we are all going to face it them. What happens when we have five closed ecosystems? You know, Google, Amazon, Apple, Baidu…

    For the “point’n’shoot” photographer, smartphones and their built-in cameras have almost completely replaced the compact camera which has seen a huge drop in sales over the past few years. Despite the handiness of the smartphone camera and the myriad of post-processing effects beloved by Instagram, there are times where the problem is getting the right image in the first place.

Not long ago, Twitpic posted on its own blog that it would be shutting down by September 25, 2014. Obviously, that didn’t end up happening. When that blog was posted, Twitpic pointed a finger at Twitter as the reason why.

    29 Sep 2014 | 7:07 am
    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........ All other factors that are invoked…
  • Casey Neistat Deserves Thanks for His Film on iPhone 6 Launch Day in NYC

    23 Sep 2014 | 7:26 am
    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…
  • Why Plugging an iPhone in to Use the "Hey Siri" Feature Makes Sense

    Dave Aiello
    19 Sep 2014 | 8:42 pm
    Let's say we are in a room full of iPhones. If "Hey Siri" could be enabled by default without a constraint like having the phone plugged in to power, when one of us said, "Hey Siri," all of the iOS devices in the room would start listening and responding at the same time. It may be true that the "Hey Siri" feature in iOS 8 is primarily configured the way it is in order to not kill the user's battery. But, that configuration works well in several use cases: In the living room of an iPhone user's home.. In the car where there is only one (or two) charging points. In someone's office.

    Some of you may know that I am using an iPhone 4s temporarily because I broke my 5s about a week ago. I upgraded the 4s I'm using to iOS 8 this afternoon, and the performance of the 4s feels about the same to me under the new operating system as it did under iOS 7. It is not quite as fast, but it is still definitely usable. Overall user experience is better, because there are new features of iOS 8 that are accessible by 4s users. Examples are: standard iOS 8 keyboard with QuickType, the "Hey Siri" feature, Notification Center widgets, Recent and Favorite contacts in the App Switcher. I think…

Its good news for those people then that LG is bringing out the brand new Wine Smart phone.

    9 Oct 2014 | 8:24 am
    First, the official jibberish: Samsung Electronics announced today the beginning of mass production of the first 3-bit multi-level-cell, three-dimensional, Vertical NAND flash memory, to be used in solid state drives. Now you may know Samsung for their kickass smartphones, but Samsung’s largest market share actually comes from their advanced memory technology division. Memory, yes, those tiny chips that store all your data, hot and cold. So what does all this sum up to? Well, the advent of cheaper, faster, better drives, which in short, is pretty much the death of those bulky,…

  • Apple unveils new iPad Air 2 and newish Mini 3

    Jay Garrett
    17 Oct 2014 | 6:35 am
    Apple has just revealed the iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3 at its press event last night stating that they feature “technology jam packed” in to an “incredibly thin and light package”. Do they live up to the hype? Well, I’m not too convinced. iPad Air 2 Starting off with the iPad Air 2, this year’s model comes in at just 6.1mm thick. That’s pretty impressive – basically you could stack a pair of iPad Air 2s and they would still be thinner than the original iPad. The iPad Air 2 now features a laminated screen, the LCD glass and Touch ID sensor are optically bonded,…

Ed Zarick is a self-taught engineer and has started to sell his Xbook One which features a 22-inch Vizio 1080p LED TV and the console itself packaged in a 3D printed and laser cut case. For fans of the Sony gamer then the Playbook 4 (I wonder if BlackBerry are happy with this) is pretty similar in that it too features a 22-inch Vizio 1080p LED TV and a 3D printed and laser cut case for the console. These may be portable but they’re not in the Ultrabook class for…

  • Reviving An Old Film Brand

    James Grahame
    14 Oct 2014 | 7:32 am
    We're at a crossroad in digital imaging - that magical time in a technology's adoption curve where nearly everyone uses and enthuses about it. In a few years - perhaps five or ten - we'll see a small but determined group of people aggressively readopt traditional still and motion picture film as if it were a new technology. And that's a good thing, because it gives us more variety.  The problem is that film manufacturers are in trouble and only a handful will survive the next five or 10 years. That's where this Kickstarter project comes in. Ferrania started making film in Northern Italy in…

    Jeff Ledger writes, "We've been busy over the summer combining two Microcontroller chips to create a unique microcomputer that has retro 'feel,' and plenty of programming power. We called it the Micromite Companion. It's a kit computer that is programed in BASIC, capable of sprites, tiles, and SIDlike audio with 54K of programming space. The MMC also capable of communicating with serial, I2C, SPI, 1-wire, and other modern devices and sensors." I'm a sucker for recreations of classic computers, but this machine is all new.

  • Adults Try Power Wheels On For Size

    7 Oct 2014 | 1:21 pm
      photo from Power Racing Series website In the mid 80s, toy company Kransco debuted Power Wheels, a series of ride-on replica cars and trucks for kids. The expensive battery-powered motorized vehicles were a hit with kids almost immediately, with sales reaching a million/year by 1990. I can think of some real car companies that would love those sorts of sales. Eventually Mattel bought the line, and soon after we had Barbie and Hot Wheels tie-ins that have kept the line going for so long. Newer models have refinements such as FM radios, doors, power lock brakes... can an iPod dock…
  • Winnebago Returns To The Seventies

    James Grahame
    2 Oct 2014 | 6:54 pm
    The Winnebago RVs of the late 1960s were boxy, lumbering beasts. Their metal facades were usually festooned with olive green, orange or yellow striping. They were the road-borne equivalent of vintage Kenmore kitchen appliances -- practical but definitely not likely to turn the heads of Porsche aficionados. The 2015 Winnebago Brave looks almost as if a vintage motorhome from the seventies was abducted by aliens, spiffed up with all the latest mod-cons and dropped back onto the roads of the American midwest four decades later.   With a nod to the original (above), it's available with a…

    1 Oct 2014 | 11:50 am
    $39.99 is all it costs to get your hands on the new ColecoVision Flashback console with 60 built-in games. Coleco's late entry into the early 80s console wars was one of my favorites, simply because it was the first to offer a near-arcade experience at home. The fact that the pack-in game was Donkey Kong didn't hurt things, either.  This miniature recreation doesn't include any Nintendo titles, but it does offer enjoyable classics such as Zaxxon, Venture, Space Panic, Jumpman Junior, Frenzy, Cosmic Avenger and Choplifter. The console and controllers mimic the original hardware in an…

In a test of 135 currently-available smartphone models, Apple’s new handset came an embarrassing 17th – cue the snickers from Windows Phone and Android fanboys. But does it really matter? This author, for one, thinks not. The top two spots are both Nokia Lumia models, which edge out a Sony Xperia Z2. The Samsung Galaxy S5 packs an impressive punch, it comes in at fourth place. Below that, the Pantech Vega Secret Note, the Asus PadPhone Infinity, eight different Xperia Z1…

    SpaceX founder Elon Musk has made it no secret that he plans to go to Mars, and it looks like he’s giving NASA’s ambitions about the Red Planet a bit of a boost along the way. During a Falcon 9 launch from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida in September, the space agency sent a pair of chase planes up to take high-resolution images of the booster as it made a powered test landing on the surface of the Atlantic Ocean as a way of gather critical engineering information for future Mars missions...

  • Belassi B3R Sport: The world's most powerful PWC

    20 Oct 2014 | 11:56 pm
    Seven years ago, Gizmag's Mike Hanlon made a bold prediction: the 400-horsepower PWC cometh. With Benelli's top of the line V6 jet ski smashing out some 342 horsepower, and a series of supercharged Hondas, Sea-Doos, MV Agustas and Kawasakis nipping at its heels, it seemed a horsepower war was brewing. But in the aftermath of 2008's global financial system collapse, it seems things have gone back to slightly more sensible levels. We say *more* sensible, because Benelli has just rebranded its PWC business as Belassi and built a brand new, turbocharged engine pounding out 315 horses to take the…

  • Amazon Fire TV Price Drop

    17 Oct 2014 | 7:00 pm
    Amazon Fire TV Price Drop Coincidence? On the same day that the Google Nexus Player arrives the Amazon Fire TV price drops.  Coincidence? No, the Nexus Player won’t even get to you house until 3-4 weeks from now. In that time you could be enjoying a months-worth of content on Amazon.  But what does the Fire TV not do? Play Google Movies.  And what does the Nexus Player not do? Play Amazon movies. So which do you choose? Both of course.  Seeing that you already have a Roku 3 and an Apple TV.  Why not just add the full gambit and get each video source at each device. Amazon Fire TV…
  • Get Outta My Head: Stack Smart Light Bulb

    27 Sep 2014 | 5:25 pm
    The Stack Smart Light bulb is what the Nest is for home heating and cooling.  It is the first iteration in what might be the closest thing to the future of lighting.  It’s not just mood lighting, it’s algorithmic interactivity lighting, or a light that knows your habits. So, it’s really here, the smart light bulb.  No other light bulb seems to compare or in reality should ever bear the name “Smart”.  I have to admit that I am curious to see it in action as I know how smart the Nest is.  So few tech items I’ve purchased have had an ROI of less than 12…

    USB Type C offers new Power Ever since it’s inception, I’ve personally tracked the progress of the Universal Serial Bus (USB).  In the mid-1990’s I postulated about the idea of a SmartMedia Card being attached to a USB plug that could be connected to a computer for external storage (now called the USB thumb or flash drive). It has fascinated me how it could be possible to have a cable that could be so “universal”.  I appreciated the ideal and so the USB consortium has announced the latest in the line of products, USB Type C. It’s pertinent to cover the…

    It’s been quite a while since I’ve written a GOMH, but this one is a biggie.  Dropcam Tabs are pretty cool.  They literally allow you to keep track of everything you own. About the size of a stick of gum, the Tabs have several sensors built-in along with a long-lasting coin-cell battery (expected life 2 years).  These sensors include an accelerometer for sensing when things begin to move or when they stop.  There is a vibration sensor for when things shake or break. The uses for such a device would seem to be limitless and via the video below, Dropcam gets us started.

     Sizzling Bacon a Netflix Original With this Netflix Original, you might think you’re getting something good.  But don’t be fooled by the sexy imagery or tantalizing, golden-brown strips of luscious pork belly. In this 20 minute production of Sizzling Bacon, Netflix brings you a frying pan with two strips.  I was honestly disappointed, expecting that maybe they might go all out, in the way that Google tends to do. April Fools Day joke or not, I think I take my bacon a little more seriously, does that make me a food snob (probably)? I was tantalized at first. But you never can…

That's a way better name than one that alludes to Black Hawk Down, whose ultimate fate doesn't really make the best selling point for an RC toy.

A “flash drive” is SSD (Solid State Drive) technology, which stores data like a regular hard drive in most PCs. Flash drives can be used for external storage, as the main storage drive in small laptops, or as portable USB drives. A USB flash drive is more specific: it’s the industry term for a small roughly…

This time around, the big news seems to be the boost in API’s for app developers. Android was slow in the beginning when it came to the app market, at least when it was compared to the much more prolific Apple. But in the last several years they have managed to close that gap. With apps being released every day, they are looking to further push the production of both indie and official applications for their mobile…
