The Go-to Manufacturer of the New iPad’s Insane Display

On Tuesday, I encouraged anyone in the market for a new iPad to go with the iPad 2, instead of Apple’s (Nasdaq: AAPL) latest creation. And while several reviewers online agree, many others believe that the new iPad is worth the $100 premium over the previous model. Regardless of which camp you fall into, one...

Geode’s Zero-NFC Solution Explained

A new mobile payment contender has been making waves the last 48 hours. It began when TechCrunch’s Chris Velazco wrote an article Tuesday about the iCache Geode. In short, it’s a high-tech case for the iPhone 4 and 4S that – like NFC devices – gives users the ability to ditch their wallet full of...

My Take on the New iPad: Get the iPad 2 Instead

As I’m sure you know that Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL) unveiled its tablet device last Wednesday, simply dubbed, the “new iPad.” Two days after, a friend of mine wrote on Facebook that she purchased an iPad. But instead of opting for the new version, she ignored the hype and went with the iPad 2. Which is...

Introducing the High-Fat, No Exercise Diet

In high school, I used to work with racehorses over the summer. And by that, I mean cleaning out stalls from 5 AM to noon, seven days a week, for about $5 an hour. After each shift, I would stop by McDonald’s (NYSE: MCD) and order three – yes, three – double cheeseburgers off the...

New Invisibility Technology Keeps Waves From Rocking the Boat

I’ve never been one to get seasick. But I’ve been around people who can’t even take a short trip on calm water without keeling over the side of the boat. If you fall into the latter category, there’s hope for you yet (beyond popping several Dramamine tablets before your excursion). In fact, the solution actually...

Google Wallet Gets a Run for its Money

So far, contenders to Google’s (Nasdaq: GOOG) mobile payment application haven’t really posed much of a threat to the search giant’s dominance in the space. Isis is another story, though. I’ve mentioned before that Isis – a joint venture between Verizon (NYSE: VZ), AT&T (NYSE: T) and T-Mobile – is the biggest competitor that Google...

Google “Assistant” May Leave Siri Speechless

Barking orders into your phone and watching it complete tasks accordingly won’t be exclusive to iPhone 4S owners anymore. Yes, we’ve seen a fair number of competitors to Apple’s (Nasdaq: AAPL) personal assistant app, Siri, crop up recently. Evi and Dragon Go!, for instance, leverage Nuance Communications’ (Nasdaq: NUAN) voice recognition technology, just like Siri. But both...

Swing and a Miss: Why DigiMo Won’t Upstage NFC

It’s been exactly one month since I downloaded the Google (Nasdaq: GOOG) Wallet app to my smartphone. And it’s safe to say that I’m hooked. Not just because of the ease of use, either. Much of the appeal actually comes from the reactions from those around me. These have ranged from simple murmurs of excitement...

Fighting for a Piece of Raspberry Pi

How much are you planning to spend on your next computer? Here’s an idea. How about $35? It’s possible, thanks to U.K. non-profit, the Raspberry Pi Foundation. The device works pretty much just like a standard computer, too. Just plug in your monitor, keyboard and mouse, and you’re up and running. It’s capable of storing...

Potential Unlimb-eted: The Key to Fully-Functional Prosthetics

While printing full body replacements might be a way off, scientists are quickly figuring out how to manufacture prosthetics that work just like real body parts. Sure, some prosthetics can already provide basic motor function by hooking them up to other parts of the body. But this method doesn’t produce a lifelike response and the...
