    Usually the sun makes your car much hotter but with the Kulcar Solar Powered Car Ventilator the sun can make your car cooler. The Kulcar fits into most any roll down window (note that it will work much better with straight windows as opposed to ones with a slight curve to the top) with the solar panel going outside the car and the fan on the inside. A rubber strip completes the seal and keeps bugs and small critters out of your vehicle while it’s parked. Since it’s solar powered, it requires no additional power or wires. Just set it up and cool down. Here’s what it looks…
  • Apple’s New iPad. The Rundown.

    iPod Touch Hacks
    Steven Tweedie
    11 Mar 2012 | 8:59 pm
    March 7th saw the announcement of Apple’s newest iPad, named simply “New iPad”. A departure from tradition, this marks Apple’s decision to discontinue a numerical model, instead focusing on refreshing the model on an assumed yearly basis. This is similar to the iPod line, where instead of numbers, the generation or year is used. Speculation has started that Apple may decide to introdudce this naming scheme for their newest iPhone. But enough on the name, what was all the hype about? The New iPad’s most striking feature is its Retina display, a crystal-clear 2048…
  • 12 Exciting Features To Expect On The iPhone 6

    31 Aug 2014 | 4:08 am
    In just nine days (September 9th, 2014), the world will be transfixed on their screens to watch Apple unveil its latest iPhone – or maybe even two. I believe the biggest anticipated feature will be the anti-Jobs sized, larger screen on the iPhone 6 which is rumored to be 5.5 inches. If you want to get a feel of exactly how big this is, head down to your smartphone centre and play with an LG G3 which also has a 5.5 inch screen. What else can we expect on the iPhone 6? Will there be anything extremely ground-breaking? From what I’ve seen from the rumors floating all around the web,…

    Whether you’re a fan or critic of Apple, we’re sure that most of you guys are at the very least curious to see what Apple has up their sleeves come 9th of September which is when Apple is expected to announce their new iPhone, the iPhone 6. Apple’s iPhones tend to sell pretty well during its launch weekend, however according to analyst Gene Munster, he predicts the opposite. According to Munster, he believes that sales of the iPhone 6 during its launch weekend could be lower than expected. He estimates that Apple might only be able to shift 6.5 million new iPhone 6 units during the…

    Word on the street is that Apple is getting ready to launch their own mobile payment services on the 9th of September alongside the iPhone 6. Now in terms of supported methods of payments, it seems that Apple has managed to get companies such as Visa, MasterCard, and American Express on board. However what good is a mobile payments service if retailers won’t accept your standards, right? Now for those who are wondering who are some of Apple’s potential partners, the folks at Bank Innovation (via AppleInsider) are reporting that Nordstrom could be one of them. They claim that Apple and…
  • Nokia Lumia 830 Could Sport 10MP PureView Camera [Rumor]

    Tyler Lee
    2 Sep 2014 | 5:34 pm
    If there’s one thing to get excited about the upcoming Nokia Lumia 830 are the rumors that despite it being a mid-range handset, it is expected to sport a PureView camera attached to the back of it. What this means is that users who want a good camera won’t have to shell out a lot of money for a high-end device. Now previous rumors have suggested that the Lumia 830 could pack a 20MP rear-facing camera, however those rumors have since been contradicted by a post by WPDang (via Windows Phone Central) who claims that the Lumia 830 might only pack a 10MP camera on the back instead. Now as we…

They can choose to use the default browsers installed on their phones, or they can go with third-party alternatives if they feel that it can get the job done better or if there are features in these browsers that they can’t live without. The good news for Windows Phone users, who might have been a little jealous of their iOS and Android friends, is that if you were looking forward to getting your hands on Opera Mini, you will soon be able to.

  • Windows Phone Developers Spend The Most Time On Design [Survey]

    Tyler Lee
    2 Sep 2014 | 5:07 pm
    When it comes to creating an app, there needs to be a good balance in terms of its design as well as the code underneath it. After all a badly designed app won’t sit well with users, and a good looking app with bad coding and a ton of bugs will probably see a lot of negative reviews thrown its way as well. Recently the folks at Evans Data (via WMPowerUser) conducted a survey of their own to find out how much time a developer spends on design, coding, testing, and etc. on their app. It might surprise you to learn that in terms of design, Windows Phone developers actually take the cake.

    We’re not sure why you wouldn’t just buy a darn keg of beer, but if you absolutely must get your malted beverages in a cardboard box, you should know that an Austin brewery has you covered. Austin Beerworks is selling a 99-pack of beer called the Peacemaker, and it’s going for $99. Our math skills put that at $1 a beer, which isn’t too shabby a price. The monstrosity weighs 82 lbs., is 7 feet long and presents logistical nightmares that are of little significance to people who are just looking to get hammered, we suppose. It won’t fit in your fridge for instance.
  • Bygen’s Hank Direct Bike Collapses, Uses Direct Drive System

    David Ponce
    2 Sep 2014 | 9:32 am
    The final size limitation that folding bikes often encounter is the chain; you can fold the bike, sure, but you can’t do the same to the chain. Bygen’s Hank Direct Bike simply ditches the chain and switches it for a direct-drive system. This means the pedals are directly powering the rear wheel, much like a Penny-farthing’s pedals power the front wheel directly. But unlike a Penny-farthing, the Hank isn’t a fixie: it has a hub transmission with three available gear ratios. The pedals extend forward and are placed at a natural angle beneath the rider, while the entire…

    Most of us choose to entirely ignore the area behind our monitors, just because we’re too lazy to deal with the spaghetti clutter of cables. If the putting-your-head-in-the-sand technique is running thin, you could try to give the Soba cable organizer from Bluelounge. Just slip them all into the “Vortex tube”and place them where you want it. The kit comes with 3 mounting caps, which can be affixed to any surface and help route the tube in your desired path. There’s even a Y-split, in case some of your cables have completely different destinations. For $25, it’s a…
  • Scribble Pen: So Is It Too Good to Be True?

    Hazel Chua
    2 Sep 2014 | 5:06 am
    Scribble took the internet by storm when it was announced back in May. Artists, geeks, and tech enthusiasts, yours truly included, were blown away at the premise of having a pen and stylus that could copy and paste colors from actual objects. All you would have to do is point the built-in scanner to any object, and the Scribble would replicate its color and let you draw on a tablet or phone or on paper, depending on which type you had. The project launched on Kickstarter last August 11th and surpassed its target goal in a matter of hours. Unfortunately, things went downhill from there.

OK, that network may not yet be mandatory. But an increasing number of teachers are flocking toward “connected learning,” which involves changing not only educational…

  • Standalone Kinect for Xbox One launches in October for $150

    When Microsoft removed Kinect from the lower-end Xbox One bundle (making the promise of what Kinect would be go up in smoke,) it also announced that it would make the Kinect sensor for Xbox One available as a standalone purchase for anyone who might want to add it to their console after purchasing one without it, but never announced a date. Now we know that the Kinect for Xbox One will be available in stores in October, and will cost $150. It makes sense that Microsoft would offer Kinect separately, but the extra $50 that it's taking on to the price may made it a dud out of the gate,…

    It's seemingly impossible to go any real length of time without learning of some security breach, but more often than not, the number of affected people is arguably minimal. Today, news is breaking of a breach involving Home Depot that's not minimal, and it's not a mere matter of some credentials being leaked, but rather current credit and...
  • Google Continues To Amp Android Wear, Bluetooth Streaming, GPS And Frequent Updates Promised

    2 Sep 2014 | 10:15 am
    Since the announcement of the Android Wear platform this past June, Google has said very little about what's in store for the future. As it stands today, we're anticipating the launch of three smartwatches based on the platform, including LG's G Watch, Samsung's Gear Live, and of course, the much-touted Moto 360. All three are set to launch...
  • The New Vista, Windows 8 Still Behind What Was Arguably Microsoft’s Worst OS Release Ever

    2 Sep 2014 | 10:07 am
    It appears that there is still some life left in Window’s 8. Microsoft’s current operating system has been a disappointment for the company since its release. While the OS has seen its percentage of user shares increase it has been unable to outpace Windows Vista during the same time period six years ago. According to web analytics...

Part of the digital economy is sharing. If you've got a product, it's really only to grow so much as folks will talk about it online. Obviously, Netflix stands to gain a lot (new...

  • Apple to Create 13 inch iPad

    26 Aug 2014 | 6:20 pm
    Bloomberg has reported that Apple is set to launch a 13 inch iPad in the first quarter of 2015. This is a departure for them, the initial Pad had a 9.7 inch screen. Two years later, Apple released the iPad mini with a 7.9 inch screen but was quickly a favorite among Apple enthusiasts. With Apple’s tablet sales slowing, this could be a big boost for Apple. Offering 3 sizes would allow them to expand the market and hopefully turn the tide for iPad sales. Share This

    2 Apr 2012 | 9:11 pm
    So you just purchased a new iPad, and you are excited to try out the new Retina display. So what do you do? Open up your Netflix app, browse some nifty high-resolution artwork, click play and – what?! You’re looking at the same standard-definition video. So what’s up? Well, it seems Netflix is taking their sweet time in allowing HD streaming on the new iPad. So, in the mean time, they updated their artwork to appear nice and crisp, but left streaming untouched. Netflix tweeted that HD streaming is “on the way.” Netflix is already streaming 1080p content to the new Apple TV’s, but…
  • Where’s the “3″ in the new iPad?

    Steven Tweedie
    13 Mar 2012 | 11:30 pm
    So the new iPad isn’t called the “iPad 3” or “iPad HD”, what’s the big deal? Apple obviously had their reasons for severing the number from the name, but their timing is peculiar. Why make the decision with the third generation iPad when the iPhone is currently at iPhone 4S? The first possible answer is simple. Right now, Apple is releasing a new iPad each year, and at this rate, we would be at the iPad 6 in just three years. At that point, it’s getting a little excessive. According to Apple, the new iPad is breaking pre-order records already, and is on par to see…

    Steven Tweedie
    11 Mar 2012 | 8:59 pm
    March 7th saw the announcement of Apple’s newest iPad, named simply “New iPad”. A departure from tradition, this marks Apple’s decision to discontinue a numerical model, instead focusing on refreshing the model on an assumed yearly basis. This is similar to the iPod line, where instead of numbers, the generation or year is used. Speculation has started that Apple may decide to introdudce this naming scheme for their newest iPhone. But enough on the name, what was all the hype about? The New iPad’s most striking feature is its Retina display, a crystal-clear 2048…

  • Wellograph, the First Sapphire Crystal Wellness Watch Launches!

    Michael Anderson
    2 Sep 2014 | 3:30 pm
    Most fitness watches share a common element – not GPS, or heart-rate, or step-tracking, or Bluetooth sync. They are pretty uniformly NOT fashion watches. They might work as ‘Geek Chic’, but no one will mistake them for a designer product. Wellograph hopes to change that, with the first wellness watch with a sapphire crystal display and a gorgeous design. Unlike other fitness/wellness watches, Wellograph is designed to sync style and sport, to look good with a business suit or a track suit. And unlike most smartwatches, Wellograph is a fully capable fitness watch . Wellograph…
  • A Waterproof Smartphone Is No Gimmick

    Daniel Cohen
    2 Sep 2014 | 1:00 pm
    When I got my Sony Xperia Z2 smartphone I didn’t think much about the fact that it is a waterproof phone that can be submerged without the need for a special sealed case. But after Carly’s son dumped, and ruined, her wife Sarah’s iPhone 5C into the water twice I realized a waterproof smartphone is no small thing. Having a sealed phone is, I believe, one of the key differentiators we will see as new phones are announced in the coming days. Judie is in Berlin for IFA. Her time there kicks off two weeks that are going to be filled with smartphones news. Tomorrow, for example,…

    The compact crossover utility segment is crowded, almost to the point where so many competitors get overlooked due to shopper fatigue. When Volkswagen of America launched its entry into the cute ute segment a few years ago they sought to bring a little fun – some of that Fahrvergnügen if you will – in the form of the Tiguan. 2014 Volkswagen Tiguan/Images courtesy VW Staying true to Volkswagen’s autobahn heritage, our recent 2014 Tiguan SE tester showed it is worthy of being called “the GTI of compact sport utility vehicles,” as it lived up to the automaker’s standards of design…

  • Is This Bicycle Unstealable?

    Craziest Gadgets Jeff
    26 Aug 2014 | 1:34 pm
    You don’t need to carry around a big heavy lock for your bicycle when you have this new bicycle design called the Yerka Project. That’s because the frame of the bicycle itself becomes a giant lock. You separate the bottom of the frame, unhook the seat post, then use that to make the bike into a lock. You can wrap the bike around objects of most any size. You can see in this quick video below how exactly it works.While conceptually using the frame as a lock is a good idea, it still leaves a few big issues unresolved: for starters the tires are not locked up. Although you definitely…

    Usually the sun makes your car much hotter but with the Kulcar Solar Powered Car Ventilator the sun can make your car cooler. The Kulcar fits into most any roll down window (note that it will work much better with straight windows as opposed to ones with a slight curve to the top) with the solar panel going outside the car and the fan on the inside. A rubber strip completes the seal and keeps bugs and small critters out of your vehicle while it’s parked. Since it’s solar powered, it requires no additional power or wires. Just set it up and cool down. Here’s what it looks…

    21 Aug 2014 | 11:08 am
    Here’s a new way to keep your mixed drinks really cold- with Iceliners. Instead of making an ice cube that goes inside your glass, this mold makes an ice cube that lines the glass. Ok technically it’s still in your glass but you get the point. It’s like drinking from an ice glass. Since the ice completely surrounds the drink, it gets cold fast and stays cold. Surface area! How does it work? Simply: You place the IceLiner atop the glass and press around the rim for a tight fit. Pour water (or whatever) into the spout on top and water flows in between the IceLiner and the…

    The towers attack the baseband radio in your phone and use it to hack the OS; they're only visible if you're using one of the customized, paranoid-Android, post-Snowden secure phones, and they're all around US military bases. ESD's Cryptophone 500 spotted 17 of the fake cellular towers on casual drives around the USA, including one at the South Point Casino in Las Vegas. The baseband processor, which controls the phone's radio, is notoriously insecure and vulnerable to over-the-air attacks; it can serve as a back-door to your phone's main OS.

Also, this one seemed to have a lot more bleeped words than the past two episodes. Presumably because Snoop was revealing top-secret military codewords on late-night TV. "He was cussing." Snoop Dogg?

Although it would have been even cooler if you made the bat-symbol so big they could have been eyeballs. *tapping head* I'm a thinker. Thanks to carey, who told me she's tempted to do the same thing with a Supergirl symbol. Heck yeah, take me to the beach with you.

    Delli Aldo and Ferro Aldo shoes are dirt cheap vegan shoes made of fake leather. However, they look exactly like leather shoes costing hundreds of dollars while a pair of Delli/Ferro Aldo shoes cost about $30 on Amazon. What’s more, in my experience, they require no polishing whatsoever, and are very rain resistant. They come in a ton of colors and sizes and styles. There are 2 downsides: 1) they run large. My normal shoe size is a 10. In Delli/Ferro Aldo, this works out to 8 and a half. So do heed theAamazon warnings to order at least one size down. 2) They smell awful, like plastic,…

Shave Well is 6×4″ as opposed to 7×5″ for this product.) This fogless mirror, with the unfortunate company name of Toilet Tree, is the best we’ve found for this task. Nothing fancy, just a mirror filled with hot water in a container. But it works.

And of course the tests should take as little time as possible (preferably under 5 min), and run off portable devices. I settled on Mind Metrics — it’s an awesome phone app that lets me measure alertness, higher cognitive abilities…

  • Nanotech Waterproof T-Shirt

    Marcel Sim
    2 Sep 2014 | 6:30 am
    Melbourne based company Threadsmiths has solved the age-­old problem of stained white T-shirts by synthesizing a fully hydrophobic T­-shirt, ­ the first in the world to be available to the public. Dubbed “The Cavalier” ­ the 100% cotton shirt incorporates a nature ­inspired nanotechnology that completely repels dirt and liquids, leaving the surface of the fabric crisp, dry, and without stains. While other white T-shirts are stained and ruined by liquids such as coffee and wine, “The Cavalier’s” hydrophobic properties cause liquids to bead ­up and fall off the…
  • Introducing the Tiger EasyRoller: Creating Safer and More Efficient Work Spaces

    Steven Teo
    2 Sep 2014 | 6:08 am
    Despite its importance, the issue of health and safety continues to divide opinion in the contemporary workplace. Even the development of the so-called ‘myth buster’ panel in the UK has done little to bridge this divide, as there remain a number of individuals who continue to question frivolous and seemingly unnecessary rules that are created in the name of safety. This should not distract business owners from the importance of health and safety, however, or undermine the need for being proactive when implementing changes. Innovation and acceptance are central to the cultivation of safe…

Switchmate uses rare earth magnets to retrofit over existing light switches, turning them into smart switches using a Bluetooth low energy (BLE) enabled actuating mechanism. While current solutions require rewiring, screw mounting, or installing protrusive bulbs that reduce the functionality of existing switches, Switchmate offers an elegant light switch cover that effortlessly snaps over your standard switch plates.

    Economic growth in the UK may have finally reached pre-recession levels, with forecasts for the remainder of 2014 now up to 3.2%. This is good news for business owners, although it does not mean that they can afford to take a relaxed approach towards spending and investing commercial capital. In fact, if your business is to consolidate recent success and capitalise on a buoyant economy then it is crucial that you take control of your spending and strive to save money wherever possible. 3 Ways to Optimise Your Existing Storage Space Rather than investing in additional warehouse or storage…

    I quite like this slim and minimal desk by Nathan Yong. Inspired by mid-century design, the piece looks modern and vintage at the same time, a difficult fit to pull. The desk is compact, the work surface is big enough for a laptop and a writing area. The two sets of drawers, one under the desktop and one above, provide storage for papers, writing paraphernalia and other essentials. The upper drawers also serve as an additional surface for your lamp, books, or other whatnots that would otherwise take out desktop space. The frame and the drawer fronts are made from solid American walnut, the…

    The one thing that will weigh my bag down the most is my laptop. It is a monstrosity, but using a phone or tablet for work outside of the office just isn’t going to cut it. Opening up a laptop and setting to work anywhere is just too easy. You could make it work on your phone, but that would require opening an app, losing half of your screen to a keyboard, and you would have to use your fingers instead of a track pad or mouse, and that just doesn’t feel right. If you like the portability of your phone, but wish you had the keyboard and mouse aspect of your laptop, then you might…
  • The World’s Smallest Voice Changer is perfect for pranks

    2 Sep 2014 | 12:25 pm
    When we were young, there were all sorts of toys we wanted. We just wanted them, and seldom did we actually need them in any capacity. It was always up to our parents judgement on whether or not we would get a new tiny toy based on how much it cost, and how long it would be played with. Now we’re all grown up, and we can buy whatever toys we want, and the only way we can be told “no” is if our credit card is denied. If your idea of a toy is similar to what children would think of as a play thing rather than a car or boat, then you might like the World’s Smallest Voice Changer.
  • LG works alongside Swarovski to deliver premium OLED TV

    2 Sep 2014 | 10:00 am
    South Korean consumer electronics giant LG has decided to team up with famous crystal manufacturer Swarovski to come up with what they deem to be the ultimate premium OLED TV, as though having a curved OLED TV in the first place is not good enough. The normal curved OLED TV already costs a bomb, and when you throw in luxurious Swarvoski crystals into the mix, you can be sure that this particular combination is going to cost you quite a lot where your bank account is concerned. This unique partnership between the two companies would be a one-of-a-kind piece of home entertainment hardware that…
  • Humping Dog USB Cable Set finally gets an update

    I am quite sure that if there ever was a top prize for the world’s most useless USB accessory ever released, it would be the USB Humping Dog that would have picked up this coveted prize, hands down without any questions asked. Not only does it occupy a precious USB port on your computer, it does nothing else but hump your USB port – non-stop, so much so that you might be driven nuts with the constant gyrating motion (not to mention the mechanical sound that it makes). I wonder whether anyone has left the USB Humping Dog plugged in to a powered USB port long enough to see how many…

(image from recode) I’ve been thinking about self-driving cars for a little while now.  As you might (or might not) know, I enjoy cars.  I’ve blogged about the automotive industry a bit, I got to work on multiple automotive pitches on the agency side, and over the years frequent the Greenwich Concours…

This phone design has a custom finish that feels more rugged, and has a textured feel very different than the standard Galaxy S5.  Comments from current S5 owners told me that they wish their S5 had the same finish texture. The change in finish was made to make the phone easier to hold, and prevent…

  • Anti-Apple Publications Start Recognizing Apple's Excellence

    Dave Aiello
    6 Aug 2014 | 9:37 am
    For the last few years, Business Insider has made a name for itself by finding a way to point out the negative implications of current technology news on Apple Inc. So, I was surprised to read Jay Yarrow's post, It's Pretty Clear That Apple Is Winning The War With Samsung, which discusses the many ways that Apple's premium product strategy is producing benefits for Apple, while increased competition seems to be squeezing Samsung in ways that hurt their bottom line. This article is making the rounds of the Pro-Apple blogs and websites today. But it's important to stop and consider what it's…

  • The NFL is Focusing on Conditioning for Its Officials This Season

    Dave Aiello
    24 Jul 2014 | 6:43 am
    My sister pointed out this article from The Wall Street Journal which says that the National Football League is making aerobic fitness a priority for its game officials for the 2014 season. This is the result of several teams in the NFL using the no-huddle offense for a large percentage of their plays from scrimmage. According to the article, "Veteran referee Mike Carey, now an NFL rules expert for CBS, estimates referees run anywhere from 6 to 7 1/2 miles over the course of a game. This year, they'll have to do it at an unprecedented pace. Last season, teams ran 150% more plays without…
  • The MacObserver Publishes Fantastic WiFi Tips from a Former Apple Engineer

    11 Jul 2014 | 12:02 pm
    I get a lot of requests for help from people who have performance issues with WiFi networks at home and in public. It's often difficult to help because most people know WiFi like they know electricity: as long as it does what they want it to do, they don't think about it. The MacObserver published a great article yesterday called 4 Wi-Fi Tips from Former Apple Wi-Fi Engineer. This is not a comprehensive how-to, but there is something in the article for many people who think fairly deeply about the WiFi systems they use. Just to give one example: in the article, Alf Watt says, "Use {the} same…

    8 Jul 2014 | 12:14 pm, a website that's part of ESPN Internet Ventures, is one of the coolest sites on the Internet for data geeks. They constantly come up with articles that pique my imagination. Today they published an article which says that classic rock isn't what it used to be, citing data compiled from "25 classic rock radio stations operating in 30 of the country's largest metropolitan areas for a week in June". This is a fantastic article, in part because the author, Walt Hickey, built a scraper written in Python to compile the data from public play lists. I have to look back at this…

  • Microsoft Launch Cheap as Chips Phone But It’s Not Smart

    22 Aug 2014 | 2:12 am
    The latest cut price phone to come out from Microsoft will cost a mere £15. That sounds great, so what’s the catch? The problem with the Nokia 130 is that it doesn’t have a data connection, meaning that you can’t go online, download apps or do any of the other cool stuff that you really want to do. What is does allow you to do is make phone calls, send text messages, used an LED flashlight, plug in a microSD card and watch your videos. The Nokia 130 is the firm’s latest statement of intent in the budget phone market, even though they have recently made some noises about getting rid…
  • The Tablet That Corrects Vision Problems

    21 Aug 2014 | 5:47 am
    Could tablets provide a solution for anyone with vision problems? It seems unlikely but researchers are working on a display that could do just that. The prototype tablet display that is being researched basically compensates for any vision problems the user might have. So how does it do that? Well, the software in the tablet alters the light that is emitted by each of the screen’s pixels. This is done based on the needs of the viewer taking into account their glass prescription. As well as this, there is also a plastic pin hole filter that it used to make the image’s sharper. The…
  • Google to Re-Brand Photo Service?

    21 Aug 2014 | 1:43 am
    Could Google soon be bringing out its own new, dedicated online photo service or app separate from the Google+ service? According to some sources, in a report on Bloomberg, Google is hoping to get more traffic for its photo service. The idea being mooted for doing this is to make it more autonomous, with the possibility of attracting those users who aren’t part of the Google+ social network. There is also the chance that the service will be re-banded as part of these changes, although no potential new name has yet been suggested. It would appear that this change would most likely involve…

    You have seen at some point how football team have used cardboard cuts outs of spectators to make the stadium look fuller than it really it is. It looks kind of naff, doesn’t it? Why don’t they just use robots instead? That is exactly what some genius behind the Hanwha Eagles baseball team in Korea came up with. It seems that the team is struggling to get a good level of atmosphere in their stadium. So they did what anyone would do in that case and allowed absent fans to take control of a robot at the games.

If you want to get a feel of exactly how big this is, head down to your smartphone centre and play with an LG G3 which also has a 5.5 inch screen. What else can we expect on the iPhone 6? Will there be anything extremely ground-breaking? From what I’ve seen from the rumors floating all around the web,…

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. Almost one in three (31 per cent) of smartphone users in the UK do not download any apps on their device in a typical month, according to a report by Deloitte – a steep increase from less than one in five in 2013.

    While traditional blood glucose meters only display a snapshot of your levels, Sugar (love the name!) uses a continuous skin glucose meter to monitor how your levels change over time. The unique wearable unit is designed to display glucose trends so you can see where you’ve been, where you’re going and how your levels are affected by food and activity. Used in tandem with a smartphone app, wearers can take a quick glance at their wrist to check their immediate status, or access their long-term recordings via their phone at any time.Read more at Yanko Design…
  • The Modern Space Age Stool

    2 Sep 2014 | 7:54 am
    With it’s aerodynamic shape, winged seat and functional rivet accents, the C5 bar stool subtly reminds of aviation, but it also draws inspiration from the iconic Googie architecture of the 1950s. With its exaggerated geometries and spacey shapes, its a quirky addition to industrial-style interiors. Presented in a stark white and natural wood contrast, it’s also sophisticated enough to compliment kitchen islands or the household bar. Read more at Yanko Design…

    I have hired a trainer to help me plan my exercise routine and one of her main tasks whilst I workout is to keep an eye on my posture. It is very easy for us to get it wrong, simply because our muscles in those area are weak and tend to stay in their comfort zone. This of course results in injury. To prevent this, especially when you are working-out alone, we have here the Smart Trainer concept.Read more at Yanko Design…

    Next week in Berlin LG is going to reveal its brand new LG G Watch R, in answer to the now in favor Moto 360. We’re not really sure what LG had in mind by this launch. It seems like they’re upgrading their own “squared” LG G Watch a little too soon, seeking after a perfectly circular classic look. But the timing looks to be perfectly planned, and perhaps the G Watch was simply pre-released to “test the market” in preparation for the sleeker G Watch R timepiece.

    It seems that the rumour of HTC being drafted in to make the next Nexus tablet is gaining more cred with new images showing an official keyboard case for the supposed 8-inch or 9-inch Android slate showpiece. According to these new leaks the HTC Nexus tablet will come with an optional smart cover accessory. This will not only protect the touchscreen machine but, when its owner needs more than to be able to poke (is that still a thing?), like or retweet, it  folds down into a slimline keyboard. Handy for sharing your feelings and epiphanies in 140 characters or less. As well as the keyboard…

Microsoft has not only confirmed the imminent arrival of Windows 9 but also a little hint of what’s in store. Microsoft’s Chinese office has accidentally leaked the Windows 9 logo in a blog post, which is no big thing really as it follows the design of Windows 8. What is a bit cheeky is the tag line which went along with it. Microsoft’s latest OS Windows 9 is coming soon, do you think the start menu at the left bottom will make a come back?

    I wasn't the right age to be fascinated with Transformers when they were new, though I did like a lot of the early all-metal robot toys. It was almost like a three dimensional puzzle, and when you were done you could admire the cleverness of a racecar that turned into a robot. Quickly the knockoffs came, with often shamefully poor representations of the transforming robot concept, and looked lbad whether vehicle or robot. In addition to the little vehicles, there were also converting toys that were in real-world scale. In the original toyline, the lead bad guy, Megatron, transformed into a…

It's not a reproduction, because it was never a product in the first place! You don't see them much anymore, but in this clock Dekatron tubes are probably the most important components because they are the register elements that store and count the current time. Dekatron tubes were introduced the early 1950s and were often seen in particle counters for atomic research. They were also used in some lower speed base-10 computers, but…
  • Science Fiction Thimbles - From The Future!

    Even around this house, these things are weird. Like every kind of object in the world, there are collectors for thimbles. Of course, that crowd is going to create new collectibles for their own delight. If you asked me, I would have denied it, but I guess it makes a kind of sense that someone would create sci fi thimbles. There's no year on the Dalek thimble. My guess would be the late 70s when the show was seeing a tremendous surge of interest thanks to Tom Baker's portrayal. The thimble is genuine ceramic, with a little gold trim on it. I could see it being a cherished little thing for…

    Bill Wyman was the bassist for the Rolling Stones, but found time for a solo effort. Here's a rare 16mm kinescope that a friend of mine just transferred ro video. It's a "Live" (lip-synched) performance of his song "Monkey Grip Glue". I don't know anything more about the clips, except that it looks like it's from a "Top Of The Pops" style show. Not only is this a different version of the clip that has been around on YouTube, but the color is unusually good considering the age of the film, and that color kinescoping didn't usually work all that well.

    Anyone who spends a significant amount of time on the saddle will know that it is a jungle out there. Every time you take the bike on the road you are throwing yourself into a potentially fatal mix of aggressive drivers, bad drivers and bad luck. Having a camera won’t help with the last variable, but it can help you gather evidence against the first two. The Fly6 does just that, in a particularly clever fashion. The Fly6 is a tail light with an integrated camera and microphone. The camera continuously shoots 15-minute segments in 720p, with a a wide angle (130º) lens – recording…
  • Paper-shaped Water Bottle is Messenger Bag Friendly

    C. S. Magor

    Carrying your own water is good for the environment and everything, but it isn’t exactly good for the paper contents of your bag. If you have tossed a water bottle in your bag before, you will have no doubt had the experience of turning a loose piece of paper into a crumpled mess – or worse, a soggy crumpled mess. The folks behind Memobottle hope to change all of that by releasing a bottle that is the same shape as industry-standard paper: A4, A5 and Letter. Regarding capacity, the A5 bottle carries 750mL (25 oz), while the A4 and Letter bottles let you carry 1.25L (~42 oz)…
  • Eyeball Bowling Ball, As Gross as it is Awesome

    This eyeball bowling ball is bound to get a few looks at the local bowling alley. This disgusting-looking piece of sporting equipment comes in sizes of 12, 13 and 15 pounds and is currently on sale at Amazon. My only criticism is that it is modeled on a human eyeball, it is pretty hard to sell a 15-pound eyeball as realistic. In your author’s not so humble opinion, they would have been better off modeling it on the ocular endowments of some sort of large sea mammal – you haven’t bowled until you have rolled a strike with the eye of an (apparently) freshly slaughtered blue…

    I’ve recently gotten my greasy hands on a Sphero 2.0 remote controlled robotic toy. Did it deliver the giggles promised in the advertisements? Overview The Sphero 2.0 is the latest evolution of the Sphero toy. Inherently comical, the tennis ball sized toy created a lot of buzz on the Internet when its first edition came out. Made possible mostly by the fact that they can sell it without a remote control since it requires a tablet or smartphone to control it which helped keep the costs down. The range if the original Sphero was limited at 50ft and the speed 3ft second, it did glow in…

    The pan that you use can make a tremendous difference to its heating efficiency and cooking quality. Flare Pans, which use FIN-X technology are the work of Oxford engineering professor Thomas Povey and his team of masters students. They claim that their pots will reduce the amount of energy required to reach temperature parity by 44%. These more efficient pots unfortunately come with pretty hefty price tags. A small 20 cm saucepan will set you back a hefty GBP 49.99 (~USD 85.00) – prices get significantly more expensive for bigger pots and pans. Then there is the other little issue of…

    10 Jul 2014 | 1:23 am
    Researchers at Oxford University developed a phase-change based display. These materials, the same materials used to make some rewrite-able DVD discs, may enable ultra-low-power (non-volatile) full-color displays with a much faster refresh rate compared to E Ink displays.The researcher use small jolt of power to change the crystal structure of the material, which changes the way light bends when it hit it, and so it changes the color of the material. Light reflects of each of the layers in different ways, canceling some wavelengths and amplifying others—green and blue light might be…

    2 Sep 2014 | 3:28 pm
    Although cardiac pacemakers have saved countless lives, they do have at least one shortcoming – like other electronic devices, their batteries wear out. When this happens, of course, surgery is required in order to replace the pacemaker. While some researchers are looking into ideas such as drawing power from blood sugar, Swiss scientists from the University of Bern have taken another approach. They’ve developed a wristwatch-inspired device that can power a pacemaker via the beating of the patient’s own heart. .. Continue Reading Battery-less device powers a pacemaker using heartbeats…

    If you frequently ride a bike on asphalt, then it’s entirely possible that sooner or later you’re going to wipe out and end up with some nasty skin abrasions. While such "road rash" can occur just about anywhere on the body, the shoulders and hips are particularly prone to it, as they’re the parts of the body upon which cyclists quite often end up sliding across the road. In order to help protect those areas, Scott Sports has announced a new line of cycling clothing made to protect against road rash ... with a little help from ceramics and carbon fiber. ..

    I have been using Dropbox since 2010 and have nearly 290 GB of storage space in my account. However, I decided to give OneDrive another shot since it comes integrated deeply with my new Windows 8.1 device out-of-the-box.

    Start-ups have come into vogue. Today’s Silicon Valley has brogrammers, swag galore, and even its own reality TV show. Geeks are the new party rockers and we’re starting to see the resurrection of crazy start-up launch parties.

Since it features a full-blown Windows 8 Pro operating system, I could use for just about anything including Photoshop or running Ubuntu in Virtualbox when coding. The 128 GB model goes for about $999. Throwing in a type keyboard brings the price tag up to about $1,100.

    Arby’s has a secret menu item (meaning it’s not on the official menu but you can request it and they’ll make it for you) called the Meat Mountain. It’s a truly formidable tower of meats, and it all started because of this promotional photo: Arby’s created that poster to remind consumers that the chain sells plenty of meats besides its famous roast beef. This marketing strategy worked, apparently, because people started coming in asking if they could order that entire stack o’ meats. And the Meat Mountain was born.

For instance, slowing down the frame rate enables you to record a blooming flower in real time, but its resulting video shows the flower blooming…

    Several weeks ago, I put together a photo essay of some of the many hundreds of cool aircraft I saw at EAA AirVenture, an annual air show in Wisconsin that counts itself as the largest in the United States. One of the planes I mentioned was the Ercoupe, an unusual model from the middle of the 20th century that dispenses with the foot pedals normally used to control the rudder; instead, the Ercoupe controls it automatically based on the pilot's aileron input. I also mentioned that the odd configuration could cause trouble in a crosswind landing where rudder authority is critical, but reader…

The sustained harassment, coming from several users in particular, was so bad that one of Twitter's executives later said the company was evaluating changes to curb future incidents.

  • How to Wipe Your Computer

    Chad Felix
    29 Aug 2014 | 6:40 am
    Before you sell or dispose your computer, you should clean it of sensitive documents and data. To be 100% safe, you should wipe your computer even if you plan on keeping it around in your closet or garage to guard against the risk of information theft in case your computer falls in the wrong hands. Deleting sensitive documents, reformatting your disk, or emptying your Recycle Bin is never enough. Your digital trail is much longer since things like email messages stored in the computer with login credentials, or website passwords cached by your web browser can be recovered even when Windows…

    by  twm1340  The Terminator needs no introduction to gamers. Since Arnold Schwarzenegger first hit our screens as the cyborg assassin sent from the future (2029 to be exact) to assassinate Sarah Connor, the whole thing has grown into a genre all of its own it seems. In fact, “The Terminator” wasn’t really expected to do all that well at the box office but of course, the rest is history as they say; the movie topped the U.S box office chart for two weeks. And it was mainly due to this commercial success that three sequels have so far been produced. “Terminator 2: Judgment Day” was…

  • Butterfly 2 in its home country

    2 Sep 2014 | 8:21 am
    HTC is launching the Butterfly 2 in its home country, Taiwan, with plans to release it in several other Asian markets as soon as possible. With a price of around $700 – at least in Taiwan, we must admit that we like what we see. Its body is made out of polycarbonate, this is the only problem that we have, but the rest is quite attractive. The handset that we are talking about features a bright 5-inch 1080p display, BoomSound speakers, as well as an impressive 13 MP Duo rear camera that makes us all think of HTC One M8. In fact, Butterfly 2′s main camera is a 13-megapixel one which…
  • Circular Plastic OLED (P-OLED) display from LG G Watch R

    2 Sep 2014 | 6:43 am
    As we have all seen, LG Electronics is expanding its wearable product offerings with the unveiling a new Android Wear device — the LG G Watch R at IFA 2014 in Berlin next week. LG G Watch R houses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 SoC with 1.2GHz CPU and 512MB of RAM, just as we have all heard from previous rumors, but something else has captured our attention even more. LG G Watch R is the world’s first watch-style wearable device expected to come with a circular Plastic OLED (P-OLED) display that utilizes 100 percent of its watch face, so we cannot wait to have it in our hands and use it!

  • Samsung Galaxy Note 4 wallpaper

    2 Sep 2014 | 3:35 am
    Are you aware of the fact that the official Samsung Galaxy Note 4 wallpaper made the rounds online? We have been surprised to find out that as well. The colorful image confirms the QHD (2560 x 1440 pixels) resolution of the upcoming phablet’s display as long as the original size of the image you see here is of no less than 2560 x 2560 pixels. Of course, wallpapers for Android devices do not have the exact resolution as its display in order to be able to accommodate extra homescreen panes, so everything makes perfect sense. Besides that, it seems that Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is still pretty…

  • Ascend P7 Sapphire Edition is official

    1 Sep 2014 | 8:32 am
    We have just heard that a Huawei executive confirmed the existence of the Ascend P7 coming with a sapphire display, so everything that we have told you up to now is as real as it can be. In fact, the company’s PR team made the smartphone official or some sort of that as it has revealed that that the phone will be called Ascend P7 Sapphire Edition, and that it is coming to China soon. The explicit mention of China and exclusion of other countries suggests that the phone will most likely have a limited release in the company’s homeland, but we cannot be sure of that at this point.

    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…

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.
  • Netflix Original: Sizzling Bacon

     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…

I did not realize that I was so popular until today.  My first guess was that it had to do with some spam factor, or that Google might have made a mistake, but then I checked Mike Elgan’s profile and by comparison I’m still small potatoes.   But of course my curiosity led me to other…

It’s not obvious to me what Facebook would do with a VR company, but I am sure that they have some ideas.  $2 Billion worth of ideas, at least I hope it’s at least that much.  It’s just that to me the two are incongruous. Facebook is Social Media, Oculus VR is…

Then Sam and Rosie and however many generations of Gamgees plowed on in the Hobbiton after them. And now, thanks to Riccardo and Carlia of Forgiantica Leather, Bag End serves as a home to wallets. Keys. Phones. Lipstick. E-cigs and vaporizers. Not really the best way for the LOTR icon to go out at the top of its game, but at least it's still making itself useful. Both the shape and design of Bag End's door transform pretty seamlessly into a ladies' purse, and Forgiantica Leather…

Some of our worst storms here in Canada tend to arrive in August, September, and October, so now is the time to consider how we can best prepare. Believe it or not, we have a suggestion. Portable power. As everyone knows, one of the big inconveniences of a bad storm is losing power (provided you are safe). Candles are lit, and if we are lucky we gather and play favourite board games. If that is not an option, then maybe it would be nice to have a smartphone or tablet handy and charged. Here is where our Powerocks portable power banks come…
