  • Xplore XC6 Rugged Tablet: It Will Last Longer Than You

    I’m usually good about keeping my gear out of harm’s way, but in the last month, I smashed two smartphone screens. I guess it caught up with me, which is probably one of the reasons why a ruggedized tablet makes sense, if you’re always taking yours out and about.

  • Survivor Cagayan Sitting in My Spy Shack S28E09 (CBS)

    So Tony blindsided LJ and his alliance last week. It’s going to fall apart for Tony. Jefra immediately asks who flipped. Tony puts his hand up and tells them that Woo also voted against LJ. Trish still trusts Tony. Spencer is surprised by how many big moves Tony is making.

  • Lytro Illum Camera Refocuses on the High End

    When the first Lytro camera was announced, it looked pretty cute, but it was impractical because of its limited options. It was basically just a plaything. Now, however, Lytro wants to change this with the release of a camera designed for professional and prosumer shooters.

  • Dot View Case Hack for HTC One M8: Awesomesauce!

    I’m all for retro gadgets, so I just love the Dot View Cover for the HTC One M8. It’s got a bunch of rows and columns of tiny dots through which notifications can be seen, in a retro 8-bit fashion – while also protecting the phone’s screen.

  • Nike FuelBand About to Be Nixed?

    Over the last few days, there have been reports indicating that Nike’s Digital Sports Division had laid off most of its staff. The division is responsible for the FuelBand, which seemed to be doing quite well, but in fact, apparently hasn’t really taken off. Read more @ Technabob

  • Ultimeyes App Aims to Give You Hawkeye Vision

    It’s a fact that staring at screens of all kind will strain your vision. However, there’s a new app that’s available for iOS and Android, which is supposed to help improve it. Fact or fiction? Read more @ Technabob

  • LG Lucid 3: Affordable Droiding

    I recently changed smartphones after I had lost mine whilst after dropping it from my motorcycle, consulting it for directions when I was stopped. A few cars drove over it, and I was surprised that it still worked with a completely shattered screen. Nevertheless, I was happily surprised when I no longer had to fight the autocorrect […]

  • Facebook Nearby Friends Feature: Get Ready for Some Stalking!

    Facebook is a powerful tool when it comes to connecting with people that you’ve met, as well as being arguably the most important social networking site on the planet. This can be both good and bad, and while I’m not sure if I want to share my location at all times on my timeline, I’m sure […]

  • Survivor Cagayan Bag of Tricks S28E08 (CBS)

    So Spencer found a normal idol and won immunity last time. Morgan was sent home. Back at camp, Tony is a dick and is in everyone’s face. The next day, LJ and Trish talk about Tony’s freakout. They are worried about his behavior.

  • Dronies! Drone-Selfies Are a Thing!

    I have to admit when I first heard of drone selfies, I thought that actual drones were taking selfies of themselves. That seemed a bit odd, but it made a lot more sense when I saw Amit Gupta’s drone selfie video. It simply blew my mind. The zoom out is quite amazing. Read more @ Technabob
