SPUD Is A 24″Display For Your Mobile Devices That Slips Into Your Purse

Until, businesses have been touting projector as the solution to your tiny mobile device screen. Projectors sound good and all, except that you need a proper surface to get things going. Just when you thought that (projector) is the only way to go, a Huston-based startup came up with a brilliant solution. Called Spontaneous Pop-up Display, or SPUD in short, it is a solution that sits between lugging along a projector (and finding a proper flat surface) and actually bringing along a full-size monitor. Well, about the latter… SPUD is actually a 24-inch display. Continue reading SPUD Is A 24″Display For Your Mobile Devices That Slips Into Your Purse

DeX Wants To Turn Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ Into A Desktop Computer

Attempts to turn Android smartphone into a computer isn’t new, but somehow, Samsung made it a big thing. Or maybe it is a big deal because, Samsung DeX, the device that will enable the Android-based desktop experience, will turn the newly announced Galaxy S8 and S8+, and provide an experience that no other makers have done. To be honest, I almost dismissed as just another attempt to do so. However, in DeX’s case, docking the S8 or S8+ will enable seamlessly access to apps, edit documents, browse the web, watch videos, reply to messages and more, and doing so with a much larger display and the convenience offered by an actual keyboard and mouse.

Disposable One-Time Use Portable Battery Should Be In Every Survival Kit

Improved battery technology may have enabled smartphone to last longer per charge, but it turns out to be counterintuitive cos’ the amount of time we spent on using our mobile devices also increases and to top that off, apps we used now also consume more of the battery life, and so, we are pretty much back to square one. That’s why portable battery or powerbank is a booming business, but even if you have powerbank handy, the truth is, you may have forgotten the cable. That’s one of life ‘bugger’ moment. When that happens, sometimes you wish you could just swap out the battery for a couple of double AAs. Continue reading Disposable One-Time Use Portable Battery Should Be In Every Survival Kit

Wiplabs’ New Dock Has A Special Cable Head That Sticks When You Need It To

Smartphone or tablet dock is a dime a dozen and so, if you are going to produce one, you ought to make sure it is rocking some pretty solid selling points and we thought that’s what exactly what iDockAll 2 has. iDockAll 2, as the numeral implies, is the second iteration of Wiplabs’ first iDock introduced way back in 2013. As an outfit that keeps up to date with changing times, Wiplabs went back to the drawing board and rethink what a dock should be. Definitely not for mooring ship. Sorry for the subpar joke, I just can’t help it. Continue reading Wiplabs’ New Dock Has A Special Cable Head That Sticks When You Need It To

HP Sprocket Photo Printer Prints On ZINK Photo Paper, Cost Just $130

HP is no stranger to making printers which kind of surprises us that the computer hardware maker is not actively covering all matter of prints. Ok, may it has. Anyways, the HP Sprocket you see here is the company’s latest portable printer that produces 2 by 3 inches photos, complete with a peel-and-stick back to appease the ‘millennials’. Wait. Do we even print anything other than school and work documents these days? Maybe we do. Personally, I am not fond of printing anything, much less photos. Mainly because I am super lazy and the thought of printing using the multifunction printer, which is located several feet away from me, gives me the cringe. Yes. I am beyond lazy. I rather spend the energy washing cups for my next shot of caffeine, really. Continue reading HP Sprocket Photo Printer Prints On ZINK Photo Paper, Cost Just $130

Sony Xperia Ear Wants You To Nod Your Head To Answer Phone Call

With the proliferation of voice commands, Bluetooth headset (or earpiece) can be physically as small as possible.

Yep. That’s right. Head gesture. Already ‘head gesture’ sounds pretty absurd but though so, the Sony Xperia Ear Bluetooth Earpiece which uses this technology thing is very real. And we are not even kidding. Continue reading Sony Xperia Ear Wants You To Nod Your Head To Answer Phone Call
