    Tyler Lee
    31 Oct 2014 | 5:13 am
    When it comes to gaming rigs, gamers tend to focus on the graphics component and tend to go for the best GPU that they can afford. Sound quality is usually an afterthought, or in the case of some gamers, not even considered at all as they are perfectly happy with their motherboard’s onboard sound card and their headphones. However if you consider yourself to be a gamer and an audiophile, then you might be interested to learn that Creative’s Sound Blaster X7 will be launching this December, although with a price tag of around $400, it is definitely one of the slightly more expensive…

    Around this time last year, Olympus announced the Stylus 1 camera, which is why we can’t say we’re too surprised to learn that Olympus has refreshed the camera by announcing the Olympus Stylus 1s. Unfortunately for photographers, it looks like the Stylus 1s will be exclusive to the Japanese market for now, but perhaps Olympus could bring it to international markets in the future, who knows? That being said, the Stylus 1s is not a huge upgrade over its predecessor from last year. In fact most of its specs will be kept the same, which means that users can look forward to a 12MP CMOS sensor,…

    Last week was Digital Citizenship Week, which was mostly about the online rights and responsibilities of teens and children. But after reviewing the results of a recent Pew Research survey on adult harassment, I’m starting to think that we need a digital citizenship campaign for adults too. The Pew survey found that 40 percent of adult Internet users said they had been harassed online, and nearly three-quarters — 73 percent — said they had seen someone being harassed. Young adults have it worse: Nearly two-thirds — 65 percent — of Internet users age 18 to 29 have been the target of…

  • The Samsung Gear S Will Be Available Soon; Do You Want One?

    Judie Lipsett Stanford
    30 Oct 2014 | 12:45 pm
    Word has just come out that the Samsung Gear S smartwatch, which we have previously covered is soon to be available from all major US carriers beginning next Friday, November 7th. We know that at Sprint, “well-qualified buyers can purchase Gear S with $0 down (plus tax) and 24 monthly payments of $16 (SRP: $384; excluding taxes; service plan required).” I spent some hands-on time with the Samsung Gear S at IFA, and I have to admit that this was one of the most compelling smartwatches that I saw there. Even though they are marketing sparkly wristbands to entice potential…
  • Why It Matters That Tim Cook Came Out As Gay

    Carly Z
    30 Oct 2014 | 10:00 am
    Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, has written a heartfelt and beautiful letter in Bloomberg Businessweek coming out as a gay man. If you haven’t read it yet, please stop what you are doing, and read it immediately. It’s been a bit of an open secret for some time, but seeing him put it in writing is quite empowering and courageous. I’ve seen some mixed reactions online about Cook’s letter. Some people are proud of him. Some feel he should have simply stayed quiet. A few have reacted with vitriol and hateful commentary. But if you look closely at what Tim Cook said, he clearly…
  • Incipio offGRID Backup Battery LED

    Dan Cohen
    30 Oct 2014 | 9:30 am
    I’m hesitant to describe the Incipio offGRID Portable Backup Battery 4000mAh as “cute” but it’s actually kind of cute… for an external backup battery. The bright colors, soft-touch material and cable-holder come together in a rather attractive way. Add in the accessible price of $49.99 and you have an impressive way to stay charged on the go.The six bright colors offered by Incipio range from Blue to Yellow and more.     The battery is a simple affair that packs a decent amount of power into a relatively small package. That means it is simple for you to…
  • The Instacube: A Long Overdue Kickstarter Project That Finally Delivered

    Judie Lipsett Stanford
    29 Oct 2014 | 2:30 pm
    In late 2012, along with 3400+ other people I backed a Kickstarter project called Instacube. The premise was simple: it was to be a stand-alone Android-based device that would wirelessly stream and display Instagram photos, when you could only view Instagram photos on iOS or Android devices.  I backed at the early adopter $99 level, and the wait began. The video makes it look pretty cool, right? When I initially backed the Instacube project on Kickstarter, I wasn’t sure if it was something I would ever use myself, but I thought it would make a good gift if nothing else. Updates from…

    Brent Rose on Gizmodo, shared by Whitson Gordon to Lifehacker

    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...

    Craziest Gadgets Jeff
    29 Oct 2014 | 7:55 pm
    Well now I guess we all are going to have to add 3D printers to our holiday shopping lists. With 3D printing technology your imagination is the limit to what you can create. And someone imagined a T-Rex shower head. And it was made. And since the plans were publicly released here on Thingaverse, anyone with a 3D printer could make their own dinosaur shower head from the comfort of their home. And they did. They actually do sell quite a few dragon faucets but dinosaur faucets or showerheads is not something that’s commercially available (and really I did look it up because that’s…
  • A Solution for Power Bricks in Surge Protectors

    Craziest Gadgets Jeff
    29 Oct 2014 | 11:19 am
    Your surge protector might be designed to hold 6 things plugged in but many of today’s electronic devices using bulky AC adapters/power bricks, actually fitting 6 devices can be impossible. Have no fear, Plug Power is here to save the day. It’s simply a little tiny extension cord. Because sometimes that’s all you need- just a little distance. Plug in the Plug Power and move those bulky adapters off the power strip and out of the way. It has other uses too: Need to reach an outlet that’s behind a couch or large piece of furniture? Instead of cramming a 3 or 6 foot long…

    Ahh geek love. When a pair of Star Wars super fans get married surely you cannot expect them to go with boring old plain metal rings. No, they must proclaim both their love for each other and their love for the epic trilogy simultaneously. And the way to do it is with these R2-D2 and C-3PO wedding rings from Juan Hidalgo. They actually look like they’d almost pass for regular rings. Somehow the groom gets to be R2 though? Pretty cool.

    This is one really fun way to keep your keys safe. It’s a VW bus keychain. But that’s not the big deal. What makes the VW Bus Keychain cool is the miniature wall-mounted garage that it comes with. The tiny camper van fits perfectly into it. You’ll always have a place to “park” your keys. Designed by Andre Rumann, this tiny Volkswagen is a collectable 1:87 scale replica of that classic hippie mobile. A great gift for surfers, hippies, car lovers, and VW enthusiasts. Personally I think the garage is begging for a “flower power” style paint job but you…

    Got a pair of outdated Power Mac G5′s lying around and some talent in woodworking? Why not combine the two and make this sleek bench? That’s what Projekt Galerie did and the result is actually pretty stunning. The wood bench top was carved into a bow shape at the edges to fit seamlessly onto the top of the old computer chassis (yes that is the plural form of the word, spelled the same but pronounced differently- I just looked it up, grammar cops): I’d sit that. Why Apple built this desktop with two large handles like you’d be toting it around from room to room is a…

  • 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…
  • Jolt Impact Concussion Sensor Protects Young Athletes

    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).

    24 Oct 2014 | 6:00 pm
    The Scrubba is a washtub, washboard, soaker and dry-rack that collapses down and fits in your pocket, and can also serve as a drybag for camping trips. I'm on a gruelling book tour and doing a lot of sink-laundry in hotel rooms, so this kind of thing is perhaps unduly exciting for me at the moment. It's a somewhat pricey $55, but could conceivably replace hotel laundry where a washing a single pair of socks costs $5, and thus earn its keep rather quickly. The Scrubba Wash Bag (via Oh Gizmo)

It packs a defibrillator inside and was designed to be able to reach cardiac arrest victims quicker than traditional emergency response teams. Because when you're having a heart attack, the last thing you want between you and a defibrillator is a bunch of @$$holes in their cars too busy texting to get out of the way of an ambulance. 'Around 800,000 people suffer a cardiac arrest in the European Union every year and only 8.0 percent survive,' Momont, 23, said at the TU Delft University. 'The…

    31 Oct 2014 | 2:00 am
    I ran across these gloves when I did a bathroom remodel around 2 years ago. Basically, they are a thin synthetic knit glove that has a palm and fingertip area that’s coated in a “polymer.” Traditionally, I’ve worn those cheap rubber dipped gloves when working with tile, but these gloves are far superior. The best part of these gloves is that they are really thin and allow for all the manual dexterity that you would have in a nitrile glove, but the Gorilla Grip gloves are much more durable. They’re great for wet work because they let the back of your hand breathe…

When we got power back we passed the lanterns on to her friends until they had power restored. We never changed the batteries and neither did they. My grandmother gave one to all her friends last Christmas — best received gift ever. One of the best features is that it is actually bright enough to be useful. I love the hook on the bottom that lets me hang it from a fixture or pipe. (There was a huge battery shortage before, during and after the storm so now I keep…

This tool is specifically great for painting high trim like crown molding and ceiling lines. The platform is textured and provides stability, even when reaching into high corners. It also folds flat for compact storage. I couldn’t imagine painting any room without this miniature scaffold. -- Sarah AkersTorin T55044 Aluminum Work Platform $61 Available from Amazon

  • A New Gadget to Control Temptations

    The TIME OUT lock is a patent pending time locked system that looks just a like a pad lock, however it has a timer embedded in the lock so it remains closed for a designated period of time. The timed lock can be set anywhere from 1 minute to 24 hours. People can use the TIMEOUT lock to lock themselves out of things such as refrigerators, pantries, cabinets, etc. that may hold temptations inside. Cigarettes, alcohol, medication, phones, tablets, keys, snacks, games, and credit cards are just a few examples of things that can be locked away and out of site.

    31 Oct 2014 | 7:00 am
    Children are extremely precious gifts, and boy, do they happen to grow up extremely fast. Having said that, it is best to always devote as much time as possible with them in order to enjoy their growing up years before they end up as rebellious teens who have forgotten the tender years that they spent with you. Some parents do carry out the tradition of reading bedtime stories to their children, but if you are unable to be there in person during certain times due to business travels and the like, then the $69.95 Parent’s Voice Book Storyteller would be the ideal replacement.

Some people are more comfortable with having the pair of headphones hanging over their ears, while others prefer it to remain in-ear, so that they get to maximize the amount of audio feedback.

    Action speaks louder than words, but in the case of the aptly named Acton, it will be able to go about its task in an understated manner without “shouting” out its pedigree, so to speak. The Acton is a spanking new speaker that might be small in size, but it is definitely big on performance. This is one prime example of mom’s advice coming in handy – never too judge a book by its cover, and in the case of a speaker, this would mean not to judge a speaker’s performance based on its size alone. The Acton from Marshall will arrive in either black or cream colors, and this…

While some folks do swear by a wired mouse for superior and guaranteed reaction with each click and flick, I am quite sure that technology has moved along over the years to ensure that a wireless gaming mouse too, is capable of offering competition-grade performance.

    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…

    Groupon often comes in for criticism when suppliers who use the site fail to deliver on the advertised product or service. You can argue the merits of whether they should be liable or not, but actions speak louder than words and for me, Groupon have done the right thing. Back in December of last year, I bought a Nexus 10 via an offer on Groupon UK for around GB£250. It arrived promptly and worked fine until a problem developed with the flash on the camera in late April. I contacted the supplier and after supplying photos of the problem, they agreed to repair the tablet in “six to…
  • Twitch Would Like You to Wear Clothing

In general, dress codes are not put into Rules of Conduct unless there have been problems. I’m not aware of anything specific that may have prompted this change, but it seems to me that Twitch must have had reasons for making it. The new change to their Rules of Conduct includes a section called “Dress…appropriately”. The key portion says: Wearing no clothing or sexually suggestive clothing – including lingerie, swimsuits, pasties,…

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........

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…

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.

Sometimes more than should probably be admitted to the wider world. The survey by the mobile gaming site Mobile Slots found that close to 1 in 5 single men would choose to have an iPhone 6 instead of a girlfriend.

The main features of the Nexus 6 are the new bigger six-inch Quad HD screen, huge 3220 mAh lithium ion battery, 13 megapixel camera with OIS, dual front speakers and of course Android Lollipop. I love the curved back design and the big bold camera placement on the back. The new Nexus 6 will be available for pre-order later this month.

  • 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…
  • A Very Cool $59 Retrocomputer

    James Grahame
    8 Oct 2014 | 10:30 am
    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. It combines the old-school familiarity of BASIC with the ability to…
  • 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…
  • ColecoVision's Affordable Retro Console

    James Grahame
    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…

    Will the Hemingwrite help you to write like Hemingway? No, but it might keep you off Facebook long enough to bang out a couple of chapters for that novel that you have always been meaning to get started. For those of you not old enough to remember what typing on a typewriter was like – let me tell you, it was fantastic. 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…

  • Oppo claims its smartphones are Apple’s nemesis

    Stuff Staff
    29 Oct 2014 | 5:00 am
    Don’t pit Oppo against any of the Chinese vendors. That’s the message Oppo Singapore CEO and managing director, Sean Deng, wants to get across. Deng gets confused why people associate Oppo with Chinese companies since it was founded in the US before moving its base to China. In addition, he claimed every single component of its smartphones isn’t made in China. According to Deng, the entire DNA for Oppo is different from other manufacturers as other vendors see a gap in the market and target that market with their mobile offerings. But for Oppo, he said it makes devices based on what the…
  • Surprise! The Oppo R5 was unveiled alongside the N3 – and it’s insanely thin

    Stuff Staff
    29 Oct 2014 | 4:55 am
    Literally minutes after the unveiling of the Oppo N3, the company dropped another smartphone-shaped bomb in our laps. A very thin smartphone-shaped bomb called the R5. The R5 is the successor to the Oppo R3, which, at 6.3mm, was the thinnest 4G smartphone of its time. Now, Oppo has outdone its own record with the R5: a nip and tuck has resulted in a handset just 4.85mm thick. As for its looks, it’s got a macro-arc frame made of alloy. Be amazed, because the R3 apparently houses a cooling element, made by a phase-shifting material, that changes when heat is generated in order to cool the…
  • Oppo N3 packs a motorised camera for super selfies

    Oppo has taken the wraps off its highly anticipated smartphone, the Oppo N3; and it’s the ultimate selfie snapper. The N3 packs a motorised 16MP camera that can rotate by itself; the smart snapper can manage up to 206 degrees of rotation. According to Oppo, it is the first phone to pack motorised camera technology; you’ll be able to control the rotating camera using on-screen gestures, Touch Access or Oppo’s O-Click technology (which works like a remote control). SMALLER IS BETTER? That’s not the only surprise the N3 packs. Where everyone from Apple to Samsung seems to be…
  • Lenovo slides into wearable tech with the SW-B100 smartband

    It’s no longer a case of who’s getting in on wearable tech but who isn’t – and Lenovo is no longer content to be the latter. The company’s Smartband SW-B100, which has popped up on the Lenovo website, looks a lot like the Fitbit Flex – a rubbery wristband that presumably syncs data with your smartphone. With Asus and even Xiaomi making fitness bands, you might wonder what Lenovo is bringing to the table with this one. The band is available in two colours: blue and orange. As far as compatibility requirements go, it seems to work with Windows (Windows 8 minimum),…

    Sony’s big 2.0 version firmware update for the PlayStation 4 is due out tomorrow, and one of the biggest additions is Share Play, which lets a game owner invite an online friend in to play – even if the guest doesn’t own the game. And you won’t even need to download the game to join in. It’s all handled through streaming game technology – like that used for the PlayStation Now service – and if you’re curious about how it’ll work, you can catch a glimpse of it above.

  • Belt Transforms Into A Scooter

    Kristie Bertucci
    30 Oct 2014 | 3:00 pm
    Is it a scooter or a belt? Actually it’s both! Although the two seem like two totally different things that don’t make sense as one, designer Adam Torok thought outside the box and decided to combine the two with his new creation – the Collapsable Belt Scooter. Fully Functional Belt Every guy needs a belt to hold up his pants and the Belt Scooter does a great job at it! It fully wraps around you waist and weights only 1.7k, so it’s not as bulky as you’d first think. Then when you’re ready to take off, just take it off, unfold it and be on your merry way!
  • Does the Nexus Player Deserve a Spot in Your Living Room?

    What streaming device is in your living room?  Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV, or Roku?  Or perhaps you have a “smart TV”, which after all the smoked cleared a few years ago turned out to be more dumb than smart. Largely because of their speed, or I should say lack there of. Now, Google, who makes the Chromecast, and once had something called Google TV, is asking for another spot in your living room.  It’s called the Nexus Player. The Nexus Player is a hockey puck shaped device clad in all black, and relatively simple looking.  Clean, though, and nothing short of…

    Motorola and Verizon have announced the latest Droid smartphone, the Droid Turbo, which will replace last year’s Droid Ultra. The Droid Turbo’s biggest selling point is its mega battery, which is 3,900mAh and will last you for 48 hours of use between charges, according to Verizon.

    In light of disappointing earnings, Samsung just told the world that it's planning to "fundamentally reform" its take the smartphone. But it's fair to say that the company may have changed its thinking long before yesterday's dire report.

  • The Russian World Cup logo looks like a bug-eyed alien

    31 Oct 2014 | 6:26 am
    This week, the internet has found some time away from quarrelling with itself over GamerGate to try and figure out exactly what the logo for the next soccer World Cup is meant to represent. To hear it described by the Russian hosts and the Portuguese designers at Brandia Central, it's an amalgamation of the host nation's proud traditions in art, architecture, and space exploration, mixed in with some symbology about the human aspiration to reach for the stars. Those themes are subtly woven in by using Sputnik's shape at the top of the design and ascending human figures at its base. Perhaps…

  • Price for Huawei Honor 4X

    31 Oct 2014 | 4:47 am
    We have all seen the Huawei Honor 4X models leaked after it got certified for sale on China. For those of you who don’t know, we have received some specs and pictures of the handset, as well as a rumored price point of CNY 800. To be more precise, that would be $130 or €103 at the current exchange rates, but new info reveals something completely different. If we take in consideration another source, the Honor 4X will be priced under CNY 1,000, though it will probably go for CNY 899. That means $146 or €115. It is true that this is not a big difference compared to what the previous…
  • Galaxy Note 4 – what many people wanted

    31 Oct 2014 | 3:55 am
    Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is just what many people wanted in the first place. Its specs are high-end ones, its price is fair for what you are receiving, so there is no surprise that the market has such a positive reaction towards the Note 4. A new report from Korea revealed seems to confirm that. Samsung Galaxy Note 4′s sales figures are better than expected. As it turns out, 4.5 million Note 4 units have been sold since the handset’s market debut, which is quite an impressive number given the fact that the smartphone was available only in Korea and China at the beginning.

  • Screen resolution of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy A7

    30 Oct 2014 | 8:37 am
    As you probably remember, we have received some contradictory details about the screen resolution of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy A7. While some sources said 720p, there are several others telling 1080p, but now we are back with fresh info in order to clear the mystery. A leaked User Agent PROFILE confirms the 1080p number for the SM-A700FD, which is a dual-SIM version of the device. Even more, we have been informed about the fact that the screen will have a 5.5″ diagonal, so we are taking about a 400ppi pixel density, up from the previous Galaxy Alpha 312ppi.

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…

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.

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.

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…

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…

    With the internet going abuzz with Apple’s recent product announcement, we took some time to review the iPad Air 2. iPad Air  was a great leap in design. iPad Air 2 certainly has many improvements.

At only 6.1mm it is a very sleek but powerful tablet and weighs less than a pound. You won’t have to think twice about carrying it around. Another great thing about iPad Air 2 is that the images look sharper and more alive. Apple has done some magic to…
