New gadget could revolutionize keyboards… by ditching them entirely

Imagine a tablet that is just as conducive to productivity as a notebook computer, but has absolutely no additional bulk. Imagine the same solution could allow you to type just as quickly on an iPad or a smartphone as you do on a desktop computer, but without the need to add any big keyboard accessories to your bag. This is the future that a new startup in Austin, Texas has envisioned, and the company is now working to make this future a reality. More →

Samsung is about to buy the future

Samsung is known to dabble in any and every area it possibly can in an effort to find the next big thing. But the company’s actual “next big thing” may have been born outside of Samsung’s walls. According to a report from Techcrunch, Samsung is currently in talks to acquire smart home startup SmartThings for somewhere in the neighborhood of $200 million. That may sound like a lot for a company that began on Kickstarter not long ago, but it’s a bargain for the company SmartThings has become. More →

This is the only iPad stylus you should care about

This is the only iPad stylus you should care about

By on July 14, 2014 at 11:35 AM.

Let’s be frank for a moment: most smartphone and tablet accessories are garbage. Countless companies race to the bottom and do everything they can to flood the market with cheap cases, chargers, charms, covers and anything else they can churn out of factories in China. As a result, it can be painfully difficult to find high-quality accessories because we often have no choice but to dig through a mountain of trash to get to them.

If you’re looking for a stylus for your iPad, Android tablet, iPhone or Android phone, I’ve done the digging for you. More →

Kickstarter suspends apparent scammers before they fled with $550,000

The iFind Kickstarter campaign that many publications questioned earlier this week, believing it’s nothing more than a scam meant to steal money from unsuspecting backers, has been officially suspended, The Register reports. WeTag, the makers of iFind who were seeking $25,000 in funding, would have gotten access to over $546,000 in pledges in just a few days.

Yes, Nest will start sharing data with Google
