Google Plus Just Took A More Fashionable Turn


Google just released information about the pending Google Plus update. The popular, but not the highest popular social media network out there, just got better. The reasons are several: there is a new design, a completely revamped way of how you use Google Plus and quite an interesting selection of features coming up. For many, Google Plus has been and is an unwanted child of the social media world – but in all true fairness, it does bring a whole lot to the table, that most of us haven’t really utilized or understood well enough. Google has been talking with their users, all in order

ResMed S+: High Tech Help for Good Night’s Sleep


For over 25 years ResMed has been providing medical equipment for sleep-disorder breathing. They are clearly not a johnny-come-lately, jumping on the latest hi-tech bandwagon. This fall ResMed introduced the S+, a no-contact sleep tracking device developed for the consumer.  This differs greatly from wearables such as the Basis Peak and the Jawbone UP systems that promise to track sleep as well as steps, calories, and activity. The ResMed S+ uses a combination of respiratory and biomotion sensors that not only monitor your motion and breathing while you sleep, but the temperature, light and noise in your bedroom as well. In addition to the biomotion

Blackberry Passport Preview


No, Blackberry isn’t dead yet, and it’s coming out with what might be one of their most audacious products to date: the Blackberry Passport — which looks a lot like Blackberry’s Porsche Design P’9981. However, the Passport has a few really interesting features that make it a better phone than the Blackberry phones of yesteryear. This phone is being launched at first in the US and Canada.   First and foremost, it has fairly up to date hardware, sporting a 4.5″ perfectly square display at 1440 x 1440 resolution. This is a fairly high resolution display for Blackberry and admittedly a very odd aspect ratio when compared

iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6 Prices in Different Countries

Ever wonder what people in other countries are paying for their shiny new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 pluses? Well, we’ve decided to look into the current Apple  listed prices for officially launched (or about to launch) countries in Europe, Asia and North America. Last time we looked at iPhone prices was with the iPhone 5S and by that point there were already dozens of countries launched. So, this time it was decided to start from the beginning and to continue to follow the market as it moves forward. There have already been reports of iPhones selling for over $1,500 in some markets, but the majority of those

Security Researcher Claims iOS Devices Have a Backdoor

Apple Logo iMessage iWatch Backdoor

A security researcher is claiming to have found a set of services in iOS that appear to be a firmware-level backdoor in iOS devices. What’s more interesting is that Apple has, in a very non-Apple manner, responded to his claims by posting a support page about it. He claims that these are confirmations of the backdoors that he found in iOS and that Apple claims to use them for diagnostic and enterprise purposes. These backdoors can only be accessed by Apple (or anyone that has access to Apple’s services) so they’re mostly secure backdoors, but they are backdoors nonetheless. Most consumers are completely and wholly

Fitbit Gets Fashionable with Tory Burch for Fitbit

Tory Burch Fit Bit

Anyone that uses most wearable tech knows that the first generation of most wearables is generally very functional but not very aesthetically pleasing. That could be easily exemplified with Google and their Google Glass which now has nice looking frames and no longer makes people resemble cyborgs. Google worked with DvF or Diane Von Furstenberg to improve the overall aesthetics of their wearable technology and it really does help a lot. So, it seems as no surprise that another ‘bland’ looking product like the Fitbit, which is still popular, would get the designer treatment as well. So, here is Tory Burch for Fitbit with a
