If you’re looking to do something philanthropic, how about pledging your support to a few Kickstarter projects? Kickstarter is a crowdfunding platform for creative projects of entrepreneurs who ask for funding. This way, they raise enough money to start their business or find out if there’s consumer demand for the product.

As a contributor, the most exciting thing about these projects is getting your hands on the new product that has not been out in the market yet. Only a few of you get a taste of what could be the next big thing. (And no, it’s not the Apple Watch.) Let’s zero in on these Kickstarter projects involving high-tech products for the living room.   Continue reading “The Best Home Gadgets on Kickstarter” »

hikingHiking and backpacking season is upon us. Whether you enjoy day hikes in the park or week long backpacking trails, technology is important even if you’re trying to get away from it all. The “there’s an app for that” slogan doesn’t work when you’re out in absent cell tower areas. So before you hit the trail, make sure you have tech resources to be prepared for your hike.

GPS:

This is a piece of technology that should be used by backpackers in remote areas. Phones normally don’t work on deep trails so having a GPS can be handy while trying to navigate backwoods trails. Make sure to get one waterproof, there’s no reason to cut costs when getting a GPS. In some instances a quality GPS can save someone’s life. Here’s a list of excellent GPS selections for your backpacking trip. Continue reading “Hiking Technology” »

Money can’t buy happiness, but these days it can buy you some pretty cool stuff. As home automation starts to be a thing of the present rather than the future, home gadgets are becoming just as cool as any other portion of the tech sector. Don’t believe it? Let me build my case.

Exhibit 1: Home Security

Most cable companies offer home security over your wireless network that can be accessed from any device, even remotely. (Although if my home security is only as reliable as my Comcast wireless, I’m in trouble) These systems can detect the sounds of breaking glass, and even help with flooding detection. But my pick for home security is this home lock from Goji. The sleek design and welcome message are enough to make it look high tech, but this lock also features bank-level security, wi-fi access, and snaps photos of visitors and alerts you via text message and email.

2014_SES_27_Flip_SHP_LS_4916While the Groundhog may have rained on our parade for warmer weather, it will come around eventually. With warm weather comes boating season, and what better way to get out on the water than on a pontoon boat? Pontoons are the perfect party vessel, they can double as a fishing boats, and many are capable of watersport activities.

The future is evidently now, and many of those neat-o gizmos you ogled over in the cartoons and movies are quickly becoming a reality. Although floating cars are still a ways away, smartwatches are here and they are big, bold and busting out quite a few unexpected stops. A true standout among a small, elite crowd is the newly revisited and remodeled Pebble Steel, a striking and highly capable smartwatch that’s surprisingly affordable (averaging around $249.99) and amply professional in appearance. A popular, fashion-oriented and well-polished product indeed, the new Pebble Steel has much more on its mind than just the time of day.

Residing on the upper tier of functionality and flare, the Pebble Steel smartwatch has been quickly making a name for itself during its short lifespan, already outclassing its predecessor, the original Pebble, which in only twelve months of availability secured a home on well over 300,000 wrists. The Pebble is successfully laying claim to an expanding smartwatch kingdom, and it seems that the new Steel version is about to put a fork in the remaining competition. At least for the time being.

internet-100016261-largeI admit, I use a lot of bandwidth every month, which I’m sure my Internet Service Provider (ISP) is very aware of. I don’t have cable, so I use torrent programs, stream media, Skype, game, and use other services quite often. And you know what?  I don’t care, since it’s what I pay for. Even if I use more data than most people in my town, does that mean I should automatically have to pay more than everyone else?

Maybe I should admit yes, but that will never come from my mouth. I am not stupid, and most of you should know that once you give some companies – especially big biz and corporations – unregulated power, they’ll exploit their customers any way they can. We’ve seen it happen with cell phones, most notably AT&T, and that is already happening with Internet.
