    Get your morning coffee brewing without getting out of bed! Sure they do make some coffee machines with built-in timers but what if your schedule is irregular? (Insert your own “coffee keeps you regular” joke here). One hero Instructables user made his own WiFi powered controller for his Keurig machine.There are extensive details at the link above if you’re actually going to build your own but the basic idea is to use an Arduino Yun wired to his coffee machine, then connected via a router to a web page he made. He simply uses his smartphone to go to the page, clicks a link…

    7 Cats love boxes, that is the universal truth. Amsterdam based company Poopy Cat embraced the idea, initially by creating their hit cardboard litter box, and now with the new line of cat playware. BLOCKS is a successfully funded Kickstarter project that goes into production in March. The principle is simple and brilliant: the BLOCKS package consists of two beams, two cubes, tunnel, bridge, slide and two types of connectors. It is light yet sturdy and can withstand any cat. The modularity of the design allows you to adjust it to your space constraints and your cat’s preferences. The boxes…

    Car manufacturers admit that they fake the throaty rumble of their products' engines, using tricks like hidden amplifiers or even playing digital soundfiles when you depress the gas pedal. For the 2015 Mustang EcoBoost, Ford sound engineers and developers worked on an “Active Noise Control” system that amplifies the engine’s purr through the car speakers. Afterward, the automaker surveyed members of Mustang fan clubs on which processed “sound concepts” they most enjoyed. Ford said in a statement that the vintage V-8 engine boom “has long been considered the mating call of…

    29 Jan 2015 | 1:00 am
    I live on one side of the planet and work on the other. When I go on or come off work, I’m a couple of days in transit, meaning that 1) I need to charge my gadgets and 2) I need to be able to use a variety of outlets when I do it. I’ve gone through a bunch of international adapters over the last few years. The cheap ones break or quit working. The pricier ones are clunky, and invariably get lost or stolen (everybody needs one, not everybody has one, and if you leave yours somewhere for two seconds somebody will walk off with it, guaranteed). All of them take up too much space in…

    While mobile payment solutions have been around for a while, it is safe to say that not many of them have seen the same fervent adoption compared to Apple Pay. Many banks and financial institutions have rushed to support the new service and according to a retailer, Apple Pay’s use is currently outpacing that of the competition.This is why it doesn’t come as a complete surprise to learn that it is possible that Apple’s competitors are scrambling to launch their own payment services in a bid to compete with the company and get in on the action.

Previously the company had promised an early 2015 release, but apart from that they were a bit vague on a specific date, at least until now. That being said we’re sure many of you guys are curious about the device.While the built-in features are plenty to be excited over, just like smartphones, having more apps would no doubt enhance the user experience which is why it doesn’t not come as a surprise that Apple is currently asking developers to have…

While we doubt Vine will be launching a safe for work version of the app anytime soon, the developers have since launched a special version of the app designed just for kids in mind.The kids version of the app was conceived during Vine’s Hack Week, which is basically time given to Vine employees to work on their own personal projects outside of work, which is also where the idea came together.

HTC had previously promised to roll out the update within 90 days of Google releasing Android 5.0.This would mean that that it should be arriving by the 1st of February. However according to HTC US product manager Mo Versi, the update for the carrier versions of the One M8 and One M7 have been pushed back by a bit.

Motorola then released the 2014 Moto G but unfortunately that phone did not come with 4G LTE connectivity, which we thought was a little odd. However a recent leak by an online retailer a couple of weeks ago suggested that a LTE version could be on its way, and sure enough it has arrived.The 4G LTE version of the Moto G (2014) has made an appearance on Motorola Brazil’s website where customers are already able to purchase the handset.

Not only does it provide you with 20,000mAh in charging capacity through two USB ports, at 2.1A and 1A of output (that’s a lot, by the way), it also recharges itself through a 1.2W monocrystalline solar panel.

  • Spine Optics Frame Hinge Brings Innovation To The World Of Eyewear

    Wearing glasses can be second nature for some, but that doesn’t mean their eyeglasses are perfect. No matter how well fitting they are, there’s always the possibility of forcing them too far apart, or of the hinge becoming loose after some time. The Spine Optics hinge pictured above is an innovation from Italian designer Guido Medana, and features a “5 vertebra design” that attempts to mimic the human spine in its flexibility and durability. Unlike traditional glasses, the Spine hinge creates a small tension that lightly hugs the wearer’s face, adapting to any…

    Yeah, that’s a sad headline, but there you have it. The Popcorn Monsoon is a little appliance for making popcorn, well, more fun. At least the popping part of it, since eating it is always kind of cool. The conceptual device uses hot air to get the kernels popped, which is healthier than oil. And then the popped corn gets pushed up this bent plastic tube and falls into an awaiting bowl. Kids can watch as the snack gets made, and they may look forward to eating it despite it being bland as heck. Yes, this particular product has existed for ages, only this one has a longer neck and bright…

We spent two months researching monitors, and this 24-inch monitor has the best combination of image quality, features, ergonomics, screen size, and price of any of the 24 total monitors that we considered serious contenders—and dozens more that weren’t. Some other monitors might beat our pick in individual areas, but the U2412M’s overall package makes it a great, inexpensive choice for most desks. Its IPS panel delivers more accurate colors (and at good viewing angles that you…

  • Magellan Cyclo 505hc Is a Great Reason to Get Off the Couch and On Your Bike

    Chris Chamberlain
    30 Jan 2015 | 12:00 pm
    When the temperature dips below freezing, it takes a lot for me to want to take my road bike out for a ride. Motivation can come in the form of variety, like a new route I’ve never ridden or the need to improve my fitness, because I ate everything over the holidays. The Magellan Cyclo 505hc provides me with both! Admittedly, I came into this review with a predilection to like Magellan and their products. I’ve used their GPS units since way before they were standard installations in most new cars. In fact, I still lovingly refer to my car’s navigation device as “Maggie.” But when it…
  • Stronglifts 5×5 App Review for Android: Handheld Encouragement

    Carly Z
    30 Jan 2015 | 11:15 am
    I am trying to get into better shape. After a minor knee surgery, my running routine fell completely apart. A good chunk of my injury was caused by muscle imbalances, so I set out to get into better shape with a strength training routine. I settled on the Stronglifts 5×5 workout; the Android app has been invaluable to my progress! I’m focusing specifically on the Android app because I’ve only been following Stronglifts for about three weeks. That’s not nearly enough time to fully review or evaluate the program as a whole, and quite honestly I don’t have the…

    May the good Lord shine a light on you, make every song you sing your favorite tune. With a pair of Light Therapy Earbuds you can hear your favorite songs AND shine a light into your noggin. These earbuds have integrated LEDs that channel light through your ear directly to your brain. Why do you need light in your head? It’s light therapy that affects your mood and energy level. Just 12 minutes of daily exposure (about the length of 3 Rolling Stones songs or 1/8th of a Phish song) should increase your energy levels and alertness.

With the Spartan Knife Block you can relive the glory days of the 300 while holding your knives elegantly. This knife block looks like a Spartan warrior deflecting arrows with his shield.

One hero Instructables user made his own WiFi powered controller for his Keurig machine.There are extensive details at the link above if you’re actually going to build your own but the basic idea is to use an Arduino Yun wired to his coffee machine, then connected via a router to a web page he made.

    One lucky kid named Collin just got the world’s greatest stroller. The boy is already a Batman mini-fan and his father is a huge Batman fan so the Superfan Builds team built a Batman Tumbler stroller for them. They started out with a computer model, then printed it on paper to test for accuracy. The frame was built from steel tubing. A car seat was used for the seat. A CNC router was used to cut PVC foam sheeting to make the exterior of the Batmobile. They used a high strength glue to put the pieces together. They attached it to the frame, primed and painted it. Then they attached all…

    The craftsmen at Ingenious Audio have funded their Kickstarter campaign for JACK, the amazing Wi-Fi device that allows you to connect your guitar to your amp, computer, soundboard, or phone for seamless, wireless, uncompressed audio. Jack generates studio level quality without any routers, or cables necessary. We are not jacking you here, folks (pun intended)! You can patch into your soundboard or laptop directly by fastening one Jack into the female receptacle on the axe.

Being sent a BOOM Swimmer unit to review, Gadizmo put this little guy through every rigorous test known to humankind outside of climbing in a trash compactor (do not try that at home, kids). The speaker went through a boot camp if you will. Here is what we found: First and foremost, the sound quality is pristine. Period. Holding the button on the rubbery outside casing activates the Bluetooth connection; smartphones and computers immediately pick up on it, so clicking activates the BOOM as the speaker of use.

Let the autonomous swarming drone spy games begin! We have all been there: one of you is the black spy, the other the white spy, and your game of ‘hide and go seek out and destroy the heinous enemy spy with your Nerf gun’ has stymied, because you cannot find your target.

    Car manufacturers admit that they fake the throaty rumble of their products' engines, using tricks like hidden amplifiers or even playing digital soundfiles when you depress the gas pedal. For the 2015 Mustang EcoBoost, Ford sound engineers and developers worked on an “Active Noise Control” system that amplifies the engine’s purr through the car speakers. Afterward, the automaker surveyed members of Mustang fan clubs on which processed “sound concepts” they most enjoyed. Ford said in a statement that the vintage V-8 engine boom “has long been considered the mating call of…

Apparently there have only been 60 confirmed megamouth shark captures and sightings to date. That's pretty rare. It kind of looks like a Pokemon. Megamouth shark -- I choose you! Uh, Megamouth?

Just kidding, I'd still hit it. We set out to make Indominus the most fearsome dinosaur ever to be displayed at Jurassic World.

A pair of AA batteries supplies me with months of music, news, and sports broadcasts. Its reception is strong and steady, the volume is more than adequate, I’ve dropped it a few times without harming it, and it’s about the price of a sandwich. Sure, I wish it came it cute colors. Yes, it tends to tip over on occasion. And it’s so easy to carry from place to place that my biggest complaint is that I sometimes don’t know where…

When I go on or come off work, I’m a couple of days in transit, meaning that 1) I need to charge my gadgets and 2) I need to be able to use a variety of outlets when I do it. I’ve gone through a bunch of international adapters over the last few years. The cheap ones break or quit working. The pricier ones are clunky, and invariably get lost or stolen (everybody needs one, not everybody has one, and if you leave yours somewhere for two seconds somebody will walk off with it, guaranteed). All of them take up too much space in…
  • Microwaveable Bowls With Handles

    28 Jan 2015 | 1:00 am
    I habitually ate while seated on a sofa or at a desk. I had difficulty with plates and ordinary bowls. They could be too hot to carry; they were liable to spill their contents; and they were tricky to set down safely on my lap or to find free space for on a desk. So I was happy when I picked up a large (20 oz.) stoneware bowl with a handle. (Two cups =16 ounces.) It could hold a large-size can of soup. It was comparatively compact—and its handle was cool after microwaving. To accommodate it, I avoided food that required a knife and fork. Recently I acquired four brands of containers that…
  • Rayovac Indestructible 2 AA Flashlight

    I love Surefire flashlights. I had a 6P for years, and it was my go-to light. When it was stolen, along with my 25 year old D-cell Maglite, I went flashlight shopping and boy things have changed. The Surefire lights are still high quality, and still highly priced. They also require lithium batteries. With the new LED technology, I was able to try several lights for the price of replacing my Surefire. I tried Streamlight’s Twin Task (which at the time had two bulbs; a comparable bulb to the Surefire, and an LED bulb for conserving battery power). I liked it ok, but I didn’t like…

Portable and powerful, softish fan blades will not cut off your fingers. Folds flat and will adjust 45°+ tilt. Nice to de-fog the bathroom mirror after a bath. Variable speed control on high and Low settings. Small enough to pack on a trip. Pretty quiet.

    There is something to be said for doing it yourself. But you’re only one person. If you find yourself working 90 hours a week to do a bunch of jobs, you’re doing it wrong. Your efficiency will crumble, and you’ll begin compensating for your lack of sleep and social life in the ways that are common to people addicted to workahol. The fact is, someone can do some of this stuff a lot better than you can, leaving you time to do your best work, spend time with the family, and take a nap or something. You will feel better, and your customers will too. Here are three times when it is best to…

    Gummies aren’t just for bears and worms anymore. Tokyo’s FabCafe in Shibuya offers customers the chance to create a 3D-printed gummy version of themselves! Using the café’s 3D body scanner, customers can make colorful gummies of their bodies for White Day—a Japanese follow-up to Valentine’s Day. FabCafe, a coffee shop and 3D printing hub, originally offered female customers the chance to have their faces scanned and printed into a mold to be cast in chocolate for Valentines’ Day. For White Day, the personalized 3D-printed gift trend continued, but now the body scanner can…

    7 Cats love boxes, that is the universal truth. Amsterdam based company Poopy Cat embraced the idea, initially by creating their hit cardboard litter box, and now with the new line of cat playware. BLOCKS is a successfully funded Kickstarter project that goes into production in March. The principle is simple and brilliant: the BLOCKS package consists of two beams, two cubes, tunnel, bridge, slide and two types of connectors. It is light yet sturdy and can withstand any cat. The modularity of the design allows you to adjust it to your space constraints and your cat’s preferences. The boxes…

  • Ditch your purse for a pair of Double Agent Shoes

    30 Jan 2015 | 3:06 pm
    If you’re the type who enjoys donning a dress and heels for a night out on the town, you know a purse is likely going to go with you. Not wearing pants means no pants pockets, and no place to put your phone, wallet, keys, gum, or anything else you might need to carry. If you wish you didn’t have to lug a bag around, then why not make a part of your outfit a little more functional? The Double Agent Shoes are wedge high heels that have a secret compartment hidden in the base of the shoe. These come in a variety of color combinations, but are only available in full sizes. While they…
  • The Heated Hat stops noggins from going numb

    30 Jan 2015 | 2:21 pm
    When it’s bitterly cold outside, your internal temperature is not enough to keep you warm. You can put on layers of long sleeves and fleece-lined leggings, but if you’re out for long the cold will eventually start to seep in. If you have trouble staying warm at all times of the year rather than just winter, you’ll have to double your efforts. There are four main points of your body you have to keep warm unless you’d rather deal with frostbite. Your hands needs to be in thick warm gloves, feet need just as much covering, your torso will need as many sweaters as you can…
  • Clap Or Tap Block Clock – either way, it will be silenced

    30 Jan 2015 | 7:00 am
    Getting enough sleep is one thing – but to be able to wake up in the morning is another, especially when you have not obtained the right amount of sleep in the night before, hence leaving you with extremely heavy eyelids that are reluctant to open up the next day. Well, the right kind of alarm clock – one that gives out an almighty din would definitely be worth checking out, and even more so if it is difficult to shut off. We have seen some cool alarm clocks in the past, and this time around, here is the $79.95 Clap Or Tap Block Clock. Specially disguised to resemble that of a…
  • Retro Nintendo Famicom Battery & Card Reader delivers nostalgia to your desk

    30 Jan 2015 | 6:00 am
    We live in a world where there are any different kinds of memory cards in play, and it can be pretty difficult trying to keep track of what is stored where. A memory card reader would definitely come in handy where accessing various kinds of memory cards on your computer is concerned, and instead of taking the road well traveled, why not try something different – something that will be able to kickstart a conversation even with strangers while you work? I am referring to the $112 Retro Nintendo Famicom Battery & Card Reader, and the name itself pretty much says it all. After all,…
  • The Blade offers security for your laptop and tablet in public areas

    30 Jan 2015 | 5:00 am
    Notebooks (or laptops) as well as tablets are pretty much devices that one is unable to live without in this day and age. After all, these are useful when it comes to being productive while one is on the road, but you know what they say – there is always the risk of the notebook or tablet getting stolen, especially when you are out in a public space or area. After all, the world is not what it used to be, and honesty is starting to run low in social circles. Having that kind of fear playing at the back of one’s mind is not too healthy actually, so what kind of preventative measures…

    What if an app could tell you which people you should avoid and which people you should see more often? That is the concept behind pplkpr. It’s an app that works with your smart watch (like the Mio) that monitors your heart rate when you are meeting with friends and gives you feedback. pplkpr from Kyle McDonald on Vimeo. My biggest objection to this would be if I had to wear an ADDITIONAL bracelet to get this data, but if it works with a smart watch that I already own, then that would be information that would actually HELP me. I don’t already own a Mio, however, so I can’t…

But I’ve been burned before… so I looked at the list of magazines and I thought I found paradise. All of my favorites were listed on their website! I got so excited.

    LONG ago, I bought the Tilt Shift Generator App. It is one of my favorite apps to use to create beautiful pictures. TiltShift Generator – Fake Miniature on the App Store on iTunes I mostly use it to add a little pizzaz to a normal photo, rather than making a tilt shift photo. For example, I recently earned my one year chip at Overeaters Anonymous and talked about it on Starling Fitness. Here is the photo for that entry in its original form. And here it is with the tweaks from Tilt Shift Generator. I really liked how the selective focus on the one year chip really made it stand out. That…

    26 Jan 2015 | 9:17 am
    It’s the beginning of the year and many companies are hiring.  So are we (Mozilla).  But why should you consider the job opportunities at Mozilla versus many of the super hot pre-IPO companies that also offer good opportunities? If you are into advertising and marketing technology, I’d like to think that we offer one of the few truly differentiated value propositions in the ecosystem…  and delivering against this is a huge engineering, product, product-market, and account management challenge.  We truly put the user first – and give them complete control.  In…

  • Flic is a Programmable Bluetooth Button at CES

    Shawn Thorpe
    31 Jan 2015 | 1:55 am
    Configuration, customization and wireless connectivity were big topics at this year’s CES. One product that combines all of these features is Flic, a programmable Bluetooth button. Chris met with Pranav Kasari, a representative for Flic. Pranav explained that Flic is a programmable button that can be configured, using the Flic smartphone app. For example, a user could press a Flic button once to advance a Spotify playlist. Flic buttons can be programmed for up to three button clicks, so each button can perform up to three tasks. Flic is currently available thru an ongoing Indiegogo…

  • Stay Hydrated with H2OPal at CES

    31 Jan 2015 | 12:48 am
    Staying hydrated is key for maintaining a good baseline of personal health. But do we really know how much water we’re taking in every day? Sure, many fitness-tracking apps will let us log how much water we’ve had, but they rely on manual input, and it’s not always easy to remember just how many trips we’ve taken to the water cooler on any given day. Jamie met up with Matej Marjanovic, cofounder of H2oPal, a device that attaches to any water bottle and tracks water consumption. H2oPal then automatically sends that information to a smartphone app so there’s no…

Todd talks with Craig Miller from Powerocks about how they’re going to set themselves apart. Powerocks has adopted a two pronged approach. In its established market for mobile devices, it’s taking USB battery packs and giving them a lifestyle makeover, in this case a leather covering, to make them more appealing to a wider audience and sold in mainstream stores.

    OnePlus One is working on their own Android ROM based on Android 5.0 Lollipop which is expected to roll out next month which will be optional for OnePlus One users. They can install it instead of Cyanogenmod, and also users in India where Cyanogen has an exclusive deal with a local manufacturer. It seems OnePlus is taking measures to develop the company as a major brand rather than rely on Cyanogen, and have taken a step to ensure that. Customers who ordered the OnePlus One recently spotted that Cyanogen logo is missing on the handset as shown above. The removal of Cyanogen logo doesn’t…

    Dave Aiello

    Motigo is currently an iOS-only app that was initially released in June 2014 to provide in-race motivation to endurance athletes. This app allows you to record, manage, and play at specific points in your race motivating audio clips from family or friends. I know I'd get a big kick out of hearing my son Jimmy say, "Come on Daddy, you can do it!" at the 2-mile mark of a 5k race. Motigo is free to download, but currently has in-app purchases associated with each cheer that you want to have a friend record (one cheer is $1.99, five cheers is $7.99).

According to USA Hockey Magazine, Red Army will open in New York and Los Angeles on January 23, in other cities shortly thereafter. (In Philadelphia and the "New York Area", where I arguably live, the movie will open on February 13.) Hopefully Russia and its neighbors that used to make up the Soviet Union, don't decide there's something in it they don't like, and decide to hack Sony again.

Yes, Leatherman apparently has a version of this already in the pipeline that includes a Swiss-made watch component. But Apple-- I need a bracelet like this for the Apple Watch Sport, the aluminum version of the forthcoming Apple Watch, or the Apple Watch itself, which is stainless steel. Seriously, if they made a deal with Leatherman to make this happen, they'd sell a ton of them, and it would be a total win-win. "Each link on…

    Earlier this fall, I decided to spend some gift money on a pair of good in-ear headphones to use for exercise with my iPhone. I chose Sol Republic Relays in the Black/White color scheme. When you are wearing the Relays, they look very much like the Apple EarPods that come with the iPhone. But these headphones come with four different sets of Ear Tips that provide many semi-custom fit options. Although the Apple EarPods were a significant improvement over the old iPhone headphones in terms of reliability, they have been badly received because they have unusual teardrop-shaped ear buds that…

The internet clothing firm Betabrand has teamed up with the anti-virus company Norton to make trousers that are hard for hackers to get past. The reason for this type of jeans to even exist is to stop thieves hacking into the owner’s payment cards or radio frequency identification (RFID) passports. By doing this someone can copy and steal the information held on the hacked property. This is a type of cyber theft that is…
  • Sony Produces a Watch Made Out of E-paper

This exciting development is part of the tech firm’s plans to use the material to make new fashion products. It is called the Fes Watch and while it isn’t as feature packed as the best new smartwatches, it does offer a cool, monochrome look. Interestingly, the FES watch has came about thanks to a crowdfunding campaign on the Makuake site, with Sony’s name kept firmly in the background. Instead, their Fashion Entertainments division has…

    You might wonder why some selfie sticks are banned in South Korea. Is it because of the fears of uncontrolled sticks bashing people on the head at the country’s big tourist attractions? Perhaps it is because selfies have been blamed for the rise in plastic surgery statistics in some parts of the world? Or maybe it’s because they just look a bit silly? The truth is that the Asian country has banned unregistered sticks because they class them as communication devices that need to be tested. This is because the selfie sticks use Bluetooth to communicate with the phones nestling on them and…
  • Is Wi-Fi Giving You a Headache?

    18 Jan 2015 | 5:56 am
    The biggest headache with Wi-Fi is usually around trying to find somewhere to hook up for free on a secure connection. However, some people now suggest that exposure to Wi-Fi could be hazardous to your health, leading to headaches as well as nausea and other types of pain. Someone who has been in the news because of exactly this issue is a lady called Mary Coales, who says that these has been suffering problems since 2012 partly due to Wi-Fi. The 63 year old former civil servant says that she now doesn’t go to places like restaurants, airports and parks where Wi-Fi is present. Up to 3…

    22 Jan 2015 | 10:19 am
    A gold-leafed wood Lampshade designed for a standard 4' fluorescent tube. The design was inspired from the famous Artichoke Lamp designed by Poul Henningsen in 1958. The Laser file included in this design are for the brackets that hold the curved wood fins in place. The pre-cut wood fins can be purchased online and each measure 3" x 4' x 1/8". The wood fins are curved by first steaming them in a homemade steam chamber (instructions can be found online) and then clamping them between two halves of a 5" diameter PVC pipe (I will post process pictures) to give the wood fins a shallow curve with…

Sure it wasn’t the easiest device to use, but it’s dogged adherence to fulfilling it’s one niche works well for me. Despite my love for the device, and we have a few in our household, recent Kindles are not known for their build quality, the Kindle Paperwhite included.

    The plastic bag to the left unfortunately symbolises how I travelled this summer. I looked extensively locally for a more elegant solution but the local market for carry appears to have changed. No longer can you easily find iconic cases for your iPhone, nor can you find beautiful products like this leather wallet from Bellroy (truth be told products of this quality are hard to find anywhere). In Taiwan, or at least the city in which I have live, perhaps interest has waned or simply changed to online retailers. I have had one of Bellroys’ slim wallets for a number of years and can…

While I am always looking for something new or interesting, once you find an app. that works it takes a truly unique approach to unseat what’s already on my home screen.

Plenty of the difficulties I faced when living in a foreign country have become obsolete now: things like translating a sign or getting lost are no longer an issue with the right apps installed on your phone.

It undoubtedly makes life easier, but at the same time it takes away some of the magic, which is perhaps what we left home for in the first place. That being said, here…

With this announcement, Microsoft moved away from its earlier policy of releasing Windows which had to be purchased each time it came out with a new version. Users on Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 will be eligible for a free upgrade. A second feature called “continuum” also caught our attention. With continuum,…
  • Samsung To End Partnership With Qualcomm For Galaxy S6

    29 Jan 2015 | 10:40 pm
    Samsung and Qualcomm have enjoyed success together in the past with Qualcomm Snapdragons being used by Samsung in almost every major device. However, Samsung has decided to put an end to this partnership. According to some reports, it looks like Samsung is ready to exclude Qualcomm processors for the Galaxy S6 in favour of its own chipset. Reportedly, problems arose when the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipsets overheated repeatedly during testing of the Galaxy S6. Also, Samsung has recently gave out signals that it doesn’t want to rely on other companies with the launch of Tizen powered…

  • Alfa car battery runs on water and lasts a fortnight and arrives this year!

    Jay Garrett
    28 Jan 2015 | 6:12 am
    I was enjoying Sunday dinner with friends last weekend and electric cars cropped up in the conversation. The problem with them being the need to recharge them en route if you were to take them out for more than a quick urban jaunt. This is set to change thanks to the Alfa battery. Being able to recharge your car in the space of a few hours is fine but if this is needed partway through your journey then, not so much. We would all prefer batteries that are faster to recharge but ones that boost their green credentials at the same time are even better. Fuji Pigment has developed an aluminium-air…

    You know the saying “If you don’t like the British weather, just wait 5 minutes”? Well, with the deep freeze, then thaw, then lovely sunshine back to it being unkind to brass monkeys, trying to get the heating sorted is tricky at best. But when the weather is fairly warm when I leave for the office and then next minute there’s the second ice age I know my gaff is going to be freezing. If only there was a way to pump up the heating on my way home… This is where Hive comes in. Hive was set up by British Gas in 2012 with a mission to revolutionise the way we control our homes. Using…

    27 Jan 2015 | 6:21 am
    If you have read any of my tablet reviews I will generally openly state that I am tablet-ambivalent. A tablet skeptic, if you will. This kicked off five years ago today when the late, great, Steve Jobs unveiled the iPad in a keynote where he spent a lot of time sitting on a sofa. Apple was obviously looking to create the same amount of buzz, hype and gadgety lust as they did with the iPhone. The thing is that it just didn’t seem to resonate with me, and plenty of other people. I for one looked at the iPad, and then at my iPhone, back at the iPad and decided that my phone could do…

They can often be used where smoking is normally prohibited (although this is slowly changing). They help eliminate cigarette butts littering the streets.

    25 Jan 2015 | 2:28 pm
    Perhaps it has something to do with Baby Boomer demographics, or maybe people are just looking for something different, but classic analog synthesizers are all the rage at this year's NAMM music industry show in Anaheim, California.  Moog Music takes the crown with some absolutely breathtaking recreations of Bob Moog's groundbreaking modular synthesizer from the 1970s. They range from the suitcase-sized Moog System 15 (150 units at $10,000), the mid-range System 35 (35 units at $22,000) all the way up to the System 55, a massive $35,000 machine featuring 36 handcrafted analog modules in two…

    James Grahame
    24 Jan 2015 | 9:29 am
    The massive 2015 NAMM Show is underway in Anaheim, California this week and analog synthesis is all the rage. While Moog and Korg are busy reintroducing classics from the 1960s and 1970s, Akai decided to step outside the box by introducing an all-new $499 4-voice analog synthesizer keyboard. Sadly, it's absolutely awful.   Let me rewind a bit. Last year, Akai introduced the $199 Rhythm Wolf analog drum machine. It received underwhelming press coverage, with weak drum sounds and an even weaker bass synthesizer voice that couldn't actually stay in tune across a couple of octaves. On the…
  • Moore's Law and Affordable Computing

    James Grahame
    2 Dec 2014 | 7:32 pm
    You've probably heard of Moore's Law. It's the notion that the number of transistors in dense integrated circuits will double every two years. When Intel co-founder Gordon Moore threw out the idea in 1965, he had no inkling that his observation would hold true for the next 50 years. In 1971, the Intel 4004 microprocessor contained about 2,300 transistors. In 1990, the Intel 80486 processor offered a staggering 1,000,000 transistors, and a modern 6-core Intel i7 processor crams several billion transistors onto a single die.  Analysts have highlighted the amazing rise in desktop computing…

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…

    The SalivaScanner is a novel device that is currently up for funding on Kickstarter. As the name implies, it detects whether someone has spat in your food (or adulterated with any other biomedical matter) – which would make it handy for police officers, chronic complainers and anybody who prefers to rub serving staff the wrong way. That is something of a niche market, which is likely a big part of the reason why the device is so slow to gather funding. The other issue is likely to be the cost – but given that it would more than pay for itself with one successful lawsuit, I would…

  • Self-repairing, reconfigurable electronic circuits take a step closer to reality

    Colin Jeffrey
    31 Jan 2015 | 5:37 am
    If electronic circuits could automatically reconfigure their internal conductive pathways as required, microchips could function as many different circuits on the one device. If many of these devices were then incorporated into larger pieces of equipment, such as robots, it is possible that self-sufficient, self-sustaining machines could change to suit their environment or even reconfigure broken or damaged pathways to repair themselves. Promising applications like these – and more – could one day be made possible if technology resulting from recent research into atomic manipulation at…

    Though certainly convenient, listening to music through earphones plugged into a smartphone is not always a satisfying experience. Some music lovers, like myself, prefer to carry around a dedicated high quality audio player, while others who like to groove on the move might give the source audio a welcome boost by using a mini middleman like Cambridge Audio's DacMagic XS. Either way, higher quality comes at the expense of increased pocket bulk.

    In order to study how young fish such as salmon are affected by swimming through hydroelectric dams, scientists have traditionally equipped them with surgically-implanted acoustic tracking tags. Unfortunately, the implantation procedure can harm the fish, plus the weight of the device can affect their behavior. Now, however, a team at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) in Washington state has developed a much lighter acoustic tag, that can be injected into fish using a needle. ..

The Verge has learned that the program, along with the majority of BBC programming, will be vanishing from Prime Instant Video starting February 15th. According to sources familiar with the matter, the issue is exclusivity. Amazon's licensing deal with the BBC allows other subscription services like Netflix to carry the same shows at the same time. That doesn't align with Amazon's current strategic goals, so we've learned the company is choosing to not renew the agreement. It's a bit of hardball that could…

Wait a second. That last one sounds familiar. Maybe that's because it's a line drawing of a shot from "Sight," a Black Mirror-esque short film about an augmented, sinister future. As it turns out, Magic Leap's patent art isn't so much its vision of the future as one created by various students and designers. Former…

    It seems that in Silicon Valley, it’s not about how tall your building is, but how wide and green it is.   Although the Tesla Gigafactory is not in Silicon Valley, it’s also much, MUCH larger than Apple Campus 2.  By nearly a factor of 4 larger is the Gigafactory than the new Apple campus building. While this might not seem incredibly impressive on the outside, how many large warehouses or corporate campuses built in the last 10 years can claim carbon neutrality?  Tesla is building enough solar power into the surrounding areas that it the plant will be run on renewable-energy…

  • T-mobile Unlimited (sort-of) Everything Plan

The data, T-mobile claims, is Unlimited (sort-of).  I really dislike putting that condition in but it’s worth noting that offering unlimited tethering has not been on the plate of any carrier in a very long time (if ever).   You do…

  • Ballo Stool

    30 Jan 2015 | 11:04 am
    Don Chadwick designed the Ballo for Humanscale as another solution to society's growing problem of too much butt contact. Sitting improperly, and especially for too long, seemingly gets a worse rap with each passing week. And while the Ballo stool hasn't jumped on the stand-up-only bandwagon--thankfully, given its weeble-wobble design--it does promote good posture and active engagement while sitting. (That also means using it is somewhat of a workout in and of itself, so you won't be inclined to sit for extended periods of time.) Ballo consists of a pair of air-filled, non-slip dimpled domes…

That's right, a carafe. Even the word sounds classy and sophisticated. But Soma isn't all about the visuals. The company's primary goal is still to make your water clean, safe, and tasty, plus maintain a green environmental footprint.

  • Swann Pan and Tilt Security Camera

    30 Jan 2015 | 8:18 pm
    Not long ago, a high resolution surveillance camera would set you back many hundreds of dollars. Only recently have prices dropped to a level that most home or small business owners can afford. This is not the first camera like this, but the ADS-446 SwannCloud HD Pan and Tilt Wi-Fi Security Camera with Smart Alerts has features that you’ve not encountered before. I guess the clues are in the rather long name: you get cloud access, HD, Pan and tilt, wi-fi and smart alerts. This means that the camera has a resolution of 720p, built in motor control, is fully wireless and capable of alerting…

  • Philips In.Sight Review

    28 Jan 2015 | 9:00 pm
    Although Philips insists on calling the In.Sight a “Wireless HD Home Monitor”, it’s not a monitor at all but a home security camera. Like many recent security cameras, you’ll need an Android or iOS device to set it up and it needs an internet connection because it stores your security footage online. A pack of two costs just $284, while a single camera costs $146 – both prices are very competitive. Setup is easy using the wizard in the free app. Once your camera is up and running, it detects lighting conditions and automatically switches between normal and night-vision mode as…
  • Upgrade your Dropcam for Free!

    27 Jan 2015 | 6:11 am
    If you’ve been thinking on how to monitor your home or you simply want to record something without having to wait for the right time, a Dropcam could help with that. The idea is to set the camera on a desired position and the captured images is then sent to cloud storage. With this method, you can stream live feeds wherever you are. Recently though, a good news was announced. Nest, the now-owner of Dropcam, said that there will be a replacement program for the the original Dropcam and Dropcam Echo owners. At first thought, this will appear like an effort to stop support over the old…

    For former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, the story of 2016 could have been third time's a charm or déjà vu all over again. Alas, neither will come true.The two-time candidate released a statement on Friday saying he will not run for president a third time in 2016.We understand if you're disappointed.

While I really don't care too much about short term stock price movements, this particular move in Apple's stock is a reflection of investor optimism following the most monstrous quarter ever seen.It's true.

    Despite Lenovo launching affordable tablets regularly, the Chinese company took a hiatus on the Android-running Yoga range. Lenovo however, broke the silence in October by announcing a bigger, better Yoga. The first-generation Yoga tablet was beautifully designed and the Yoga Tablet 2 is no different. It boasts a metal body with a textured finish at the back that gives the tablet a premium look. It weighs around 1.4 lbs  and is just 7.2 mm thick on the thinnest side of the tablet. We tried out the 10-inch variant of the Yoga Tablet 2. The 10-inch display has an IPS panel and a resolution…
  • ASUS MeMOPad 7 Review

    1 Dec 2014 | 6:02 am
    ASUS is the company that makes Google’s superb Nexus 7 Android tablet and now the Taiwanese giant is making even cheaper tablets. The ASUS MeMOPad 7 is available in in a range of striking colors, including black, yellow, white, blue and our personal favorite, red. For such cheap tablet, the MeMOPad 7 is surprisingly sturdy and well-made. The thin borders on the longer sides of the screen and the smooth, slippery rear surface can make it difficult to get a comfortable firm grip on it. The ASUS MeMOPad 7 has neither the soft, easy-to-grip rear of the Nexus 7 nor the thumb rejection technology…
  • DELL Venue 8: A Let Down?

    DELL Venue 8 Review The venue 8 is Dell’s latest android tablet. If it looks familiar that’s because it comes wrapped in exactly the same hardware as the DELL Venue 8 PRO, but runs Android 4.4 (KitKat) instead of windows 8.1 From the outside both tablets look identical, cased as they are in the same sturdy, black plastic. The narrow borders to the right and left of the screen (when held vertically) make it somewhat tricky to hold and use with one hand, though the ribbed rear compensates for this somewhat with its easy-to-grip texture. At 338g, the Venue 8 is virtually the same weight as…

Amazon Kindle Fire HD 6 is the cheapest and smallest Amazon Tablet yet. The 8GB model just costs $79, although it’s worth paying an additional of $20 to double your storage to 16GB as there’s no microSD card slot for future storage expansion. These prices include ads on the lock screen (you can pay $10 more to get rid of them) but…
  • Asus TRANSFORMER PAD TF103C Review

    Asus Transformer Pads used to be marketed as a premium alternative to Apple’s iPad. Over time, however, Asus has brought down the price, and the current Transformer Pad TF103C costs only $348 for the tablet and keyboard dock. As a tablet alone, the Asus Transformer Pad TF103C is rather humdrum. Although the soft-touch plastic backing makes it pleasant enough to hold, it’s dumpy at 10mm thick and 556g, and there’s little about its specifications to set the heart racing. There’s a bog-standard 1,280 x 800-resolution IPS display, a 2-megapixel camera at the rear and a 1.2-megapixel…
