If you have the iPhone 4 you already know that the battery life sucks. This new backup battery/protective case gives you the freedom to spend twice as long away from an AC power source. And while you’re roughing it out there off-the-grid, you can use Mophie’s GPS-enabling app to keep you on course while you hunt for that next outlet.
If shopping blogs stop posting new cameras every week maybe the manufacturers would quit introducing new models every couple days. Yeah, right! That’ll never happen, so let’s get on with it. This here is the Lumix GX1. It’s new. It has more features than anyone needs, like stereo sound to go with full HD footage; it also takes pictures, huge ones.
The makers of Boss Radios are dealing in ‘bent technology’ or ‘revitalized vintage.’ They take old, antique clock radios and convert them into plug-and-play digital music players. Re-fitted with new speakers, circuitry and a plug for your mp3 unit, they take your tunes back to the future.
The I’m smart-watch interconnects all your digital devices and lets you run your wireless life right off your wrist. Calls, email, text, video, socials, apps, all of it. Connects to iPhone and Android-based smartphones.
A ghost of technology past has been resurrected in the AirCassette, a new iPhone/iPod App. It’s simple. It makes your iTunes tracks appear to play on an old school cassette on your screen. A bit of nostalgia without the muffled hiss of the old tape deck, sounds good.
Whether you ski, bike, boat, surf, or just shoot personal movies at home, you should be shooting with a GoPro HD camera. Their pro-quality mini POV-digi cams are the best all-weather-over-the-handlebars-lost-my-front-teeth-memory-makers you can get. 1080p, variable frame rates, 170º FOV, all that. Photo: Dan Bracaglia
The D-Lux 5 is a peerless, high-powered digital point-and-shoot from Leica, makers of the world’s best cameras. Technically, this new Titanium model is the same as the black one, just sexier and a little bit lighter.
If you know the Moog, you love it. The classic, spaced-out synthesizer sound has been backing dance tracks, movie sound effects and hip-hop beats for decades. Now you can turn your iPad into a Moog with their new app, and this isn’t some noisy knockoff, the app came straight from Moog’s Intergalactic headquarters.
Motorola is calling their Motoactv fitness device “the ultimate.” The watch-like unit tracks your workout stats, stores up to 16Gigs of music, and even offers “audio coaching.” All this sounds good but wouldn’t the “ultimate” device actually be doing the workout for you?
With all the smart technology and after effects, it’s getting harder & harder to take bad photos. So why do yours still suck? User error? Bad aim? No matter what you’re lacking, the Lytro is designed to correct all your photography shortcomings in a small, easy-to-use package. Capture the entire light field. What does that mean? It means you can focus on certain details of your photo after the fact. That’s smart.
