Ryan Seacrest’s ‘BlackBerry killer’ copycat keyboard is back from the dead

You can’t keep a good copycat down. CrackBerry brings us word that Ryan Seacrest’s Typo has just unveiled a new keyboard attachment that it hopes is different enough from BlackBerry’s keyboards to avoid getting slapped with injunctions. The first-generation Typo was such a blatant BlackBerry knockoff that it never really stood a chance in court and was immediately hit with preliminary sales ban earlier this year. More →

GoPro: Car Wheel Video

We got dizzy watching this GoPro video so you don’t have to

We got dizzy watching this GoPro video so you don’t have to

More and more videos recorded with GoPro cameras are popping up online, some daring, some scary and some weird, as the tiny portable camera gets more and more popular. But what happens when a GoPro owner decides to stick his camera to one of the wheels of his car using nothing but duct tape and to record a short drive at 45mph or so? First of all, the resulting nearly 3-minute long video is impressive, showing yet another way the camera can be used to obtain some stunning visual effects. Secondly, you start to get dizzy, and the video seems awfully long. More →

Motorola now wants you to buy temporary digital tattoos to unlock your Moto X

Remember the Motorola Skip? A tiny wearable smartphone accessory that can help you quickly unlock the Moto X and other 2013 Moto Droid handsets? Well, Motorola has devised a similar version of the Skip, but this time around it goes on your skin rather than on a piece of clothing. The company has partnered with VivaLnk, and started selling a temporary Digital Tattoo that can be worn on the user’s skin to quickly unlock the Moto X. More →

Kenu Airframe Plus

Kenu Airframe+: One of our favorite smartphone accessories just got even better

Kenu Airframe+: One of our favorite smartphone accessories just got even better

By on July 22, 2014 at 2:00 PM.

Kenu’s Airframe is my favorite in-car phone mount, but for those of you with phablets or bulky cases, it’s a bit small. The company is seemingly well aware of that, and is making strides to address a broader market with the introduction of the Airframe+. Weighing under an ounce and supporting phones with screen sizes as large as 6-inches diagonally, the sized-up holster addresses one of the few gripes I had with the original.

I’ve been using the Airframe+ for the past couple of weeks, and I can safely say that it’s a marked improvement over the already-impressive Airframe. More →

Indiegogo Pd.Id Date Rape Drug Tester

Potato Salad backers, here’s the project you really should be funding

Potato Salad backers, here’s the project you really should be funding

Potato Salad took Kickstarter by storm a few days ago when the project to create a salad went viral, convincing many people to donate a lot more money for this particular Kickstarter listing than it actually needed. However, there are more interesting and useful projects out there, such as the pd.id stick that’s currently looking to raise $100,000 by August 29 on Indiegogo. What the pd.id can do is to quickly test a beverage for traces of drugs that are sometimes used to coerce some people into doing things they otherwise wouldn’t – in other words, pd.id is a date rape drug test capable of quickly recognizing many types of drugs.

GoTenna Smartphone Antenna Accessory

This expensive little gadget wants to fix a problem you might never encounter

This expensive little gadget wants to fix a problem you might never encounter

A new smartphone accessory called goTenna wants to fix a problem some users may experience from time to time, but probably not that often since carriers are focused on expanding into rural areas: lack of cellular coverage. goTenna is a tiny expensive antenna that can be used to send messages and location data between smartphones via radio waves when a regular cell connection is not available. But the problem with goTenna is that it’ll only work with other goTenna device owners. That’s likely why goTennas sell in pairs, so the users can give one of the portable antennas to friends and family. More →

Google Nest Jailbreak Hack

Hackers target Nest as a warning to Google about data-sharing

Hackers target Nest as a warning to Google about data-sharing

If you ask Nest about sharing data with its new owner, the company will say that advertising isn’t part of its business model and that it plans to protect the privacy of its customers from Google. Nest will have to share some data with Google and others in order to enable automatic home-related features, but it is not supposed to lead to Google targeting users with even more ads than it currently does. To make sure Google won’t someday spam Nest owners with ads, a group of hackers plans to take preemptive action against Google and Nest, Forbes reports. More →
