Smart Remote on the Samsung Galaxy S5 | Android Central - 0 views

  •  
    The Smart Remote on Samsung Galaxy S5 features an infrared sensor at the top of the phone which can control your TV and other home electronics. The app, Smart Remote, requires a little bit of setup but is super useful for reducing the amount of controllers you have lying around and make you like much easier, not to mention its much easier to keep track of as well. The app also allows you to check what shows are on at all times and from anywhere.

Google Play Still Tops iOS App Store Downloads, And Now Narrowing Revenue Gap, Too | Te... - 0 views

  •  
    Picture in, your mind, an app. Now this app is probably popular, one you downloaded and is from the apple app store; this, however, could be changing soon. Although the android market place has been number 1 in downloads for a while now, they've been lagging behind in profit, but that gap is closing. The market place, already receiving 45% more downloads than the apple app store, is becoming more and more popular. Expanding markets in developing countries is aiding the expansion. Ultimately, android's reasonable pricing for phones is contributing to a huge boom in phone and app sales. Although this is the case, the market place is still far behind the App Store in revenue. The app store is currently making apple 85% more than the market place does for android, but those numbers are changing. One day soon, Android may topple apple's dominance in the app world and take its place as king.

Yelp (for iPhone) Review & Rating | PCMag.com - 0 views

  •  
    Yelp's ability to provide detailed information and reviews of businesses is very impressive, and the free app gives you exactly what you need when you're on the go. You can quickly find out if a business is currently open or closed, get directions to the site, see photos of what's inside, and read reviews and tips about the business. And the design of Yelp's mobile app makes doing so surprisingly simple. Yelp is an Editors' Choice iPhone app because it makes life on-the-go better and more enjoyable. And the information it delivers is extremely helpful for anyone in an unfamiliar city.

3D-printed cast concept uses ultrasound to heal broken bones | The Verge - 0 views

  •  
    A university Of Wellington graduate from New Zealand invented the Cortex cast. It is a 3D-Printable cast and has many benefits over your traditional plaster and fibreglass casts. The cortex cast is breathable, aesthetically pleasing, thinner/lighter, and waterproof. Though the start-up cost for a large 3D printer is expensive, the casts can be printed cheaply after. This technology is also being paired with 'Ultra Sound" healing. (LIPUS) is known to help heal fractures by up to 80%. I believe this cast in the future will be the one everyone will want and everyone will use. Once 3D printers become a standard piece of equipment in hospitals, the "Cortex Cast" will take over.

Daily App: Union is a powerful image blending tool for iOS | Breaking Apple News, Tips ... - 0 views

  •  
    Union is a new type of "Photoshop" app for your phone. This clever app allows you to load multiple images and blend them together in creative ways. This app allows for double exposure on photos for a cool effect, or simply making certain layers of photos transparent. The blending of pictures and using certain effects allows users to get very professional and artistic looking photos. This app also includes tutorial videos on how to use the app for particular artistic ideas. Photos created can then be transferred to your camera roll or other large social media outlets such as twitter and instagram. I personally believe this app is great because I have used many "photo shop" apps and they have all been lacking a certain something while Union seems to provide everything I need to edit multiple photos.

Powdered alcohol is coming to a liquor store near you | The Verge - 0 views

  •  
    Just when you thought that the authoritative figures of North America could not have been more messed up, the American government turns up and pulls something like this: Palcohol, take your Pal wherever you go! This is a powdered form of alcohol (in packets that you rip and mix the contents in water to receive hard liquor - or maybe even cocktails from pre-mixed powders) that the government has apparently legalized the production of, ignorantly raising the potential of underage drinking when they should be doing everything in their power to discourage it. This Palcohol concerns me greatly as it also makes the hiding and later consumption of alcohol to be a hell of a lot easier now, providing a gargantuan amount of opportunities for teen stupidity. Why, America, why must you do this to yourself? And you can't even blame another country for your problems of increased drinking and driving rates in youth, because this is solely your own fault.

Spoiler Shield is the first line of defense against spoilers | Breaking Apple News, Tip... - 0 views

  •  
    I can not count how many times already that I have had something spoiled for me, be it a television series I have yet to watch, a book I have yet to buy and read, a movie still left to watch, or even a new music video for a certain Korean boy band that I follow and cry over. And all of these disgusting spoilers, that ruin my entertainment, come from the single source that is the Internet. I can't even innocently scroll through my dashboard on Tumblr to update my blog anymore without discovering five plot twists in which I have not yet been pleasantly surprised in, a death scene I least expected before it was my time to watch it, and maybe even a leaked practice video to a supposedly secret EXO comeback. Not only does this infuriate me to no end, but it also fuels the fires of my happiness in that someone created the "Spoiler Shield" app - a way to specifically block all of the spoilers you will find while going through your social media sites. Just simply input the subject you would not like to previously see before you invest the time to actually watch it, and the app will block all spoilers relating to it in real time so that going on your social media daily will never be a problem again. At last, I have found an app that will keep my eyes innocent to .gifs from Game of Thrones Season 4 so that I can now watch the show without it being ruined. The idea that this app will prevent me from stumbling over random spoilers greatly pleases me.

'Minecraft: Pocket Edition' Surpasses 21 Million Copies Sold; Title Update 15 Releases ... - 1 views

  •  
    Minecraft PE is one of the greatest apps ever. Minecraft PE has stood on its head since it's release and is one of the most popular apps of all time. Minecraft was originally a PC game but some may say that the Pocket Edition has proven to be better. So will Mojang(the creator) slowly add more content or will a new follow up be at large?
  •  
    Minecraft PE can be a very enjoyable game. Over 21 million copies of this seven dollar game was sold since its initial realise for the Xperia PLAY on August 16, 2011. I fined did really interesting that this game is doing so well. The mobile version so far, has 7 million more copies sold than the PC version. The PE version still does not allow redstone placement, although it can be mined and used in crafting recipes, and have near infinite worlds. I believe many of the customers are first time players who want to try the game at a lower cost. Although I do like the Pocket edition version, the PC version just has more to offer with the possibilities of mods an online multiplayer game modes.

Drones help find World War II's missing soldiers - 0 views

  •  
    The BentProp Project is a group which has been searching for WW2 relics in the Pacific Ocean for the past few years. Some of the things they find is downed aircraft and unexploded bombs, with a side of human remains. Recently they started using robots to create a 3D map of the area of ocean explored rather than towing a side-scanning sonar device behind their boat. Although progress is very slow the team will not give up. I believe that the employment of new technologies to find pieces of the past really interesting and important, especially when it is such an enormous event like the Second World War. This kind of history must be expressed and remembered so we do not repeat the mistakes of the past. I feel like this kind of practice should be continued and funded for the next couple decades

Dash (Android) review - CNET - 0 views

  •  
    Do you ever want to know the way your cars works or how your driving habits affects your fuel economy? Then Dash is the app for you. However, it is only available for Android and in the US for now. For the app to work, Dash connects with an on board diagnostic that plugs to a dedicated port in your car and uses bluetooth to send data to your phone. Every car made after 1996 can use this app. The app requires an account and a diagnostics dongle. Once Dash is all set up, it will gather data about your car and your driving habits. Every time you start the car, drive around and turn off the car, it counts as a trip. For each trip, you will get a score which measures how safe you drive, and habits such as sticking to the speed limit. When you finish a trip, you get a breakdown of your starting and ending points, the total distance you drove, how long it took you, the amount of fuel used in dollars, and your average fuel economy. Dash also helps with repairs, and has many social features as added extras. New features that are on their way include a way to alert emergency crews that an accident has happened when the airbags are triggered. In my opinion, this app is a must have for drivers especially those who are still learning. With this app, your driving habits can improve a lot with its cool features.

PlayStation 4 is Winning the War. What's Next? - IGN - 0 views

  •  
    The Titan had landed with Titanfall but the PS4 still stood tall. Despite Titanfall which released in March and is the best-selling game, the PS4 still sold more consoles than the Xbox One. The PS4 is scarce and hard to come by compared to Microsoft's Xbox One which is in-stock everywhere. Yet the PS4 has only one real exclusive hardcore game released it is still selling more than Xbox One and WiiU. So obviously the PS4 is winning the war but what will happen in the future.

Candy Crush Saga - Does It Deserve Being One of the Top Games on Facebook? - 0 views

  •  
    This article is about the app that has been #1 for the past months. Its Candy crush created by King Digital Entertainment. This game is a match-three puzzled video game that now is everywhere. Including the apple app store, google play store, facebook, pc and more. It is so popular that there are 46 million average monthly users and its worth $22.50 per share in the stock market. However, does this game deserve being one of the best game app? I think that it does deserve being one of the best games in mobile. There are similar popular games such as jewel mania but candy crush has bubbly colourful visuals, different storyline/goal for every set of levels, and it looks delicious. Also when you are stuck, you can ask your friends to help in social networks which i think helps the game to be known more. King is still installing new features and new levels to it. So I don't think this game will go away anytime soon especially with all the advertisement it's in and the popularity.

Apple: Samsung should pay us $2.191B for infringement - CNET - 0 views

  •  
    For my bookmark on legal issues I found an article on the newest court issue where Apple wants Samsung to pay 2.191 billion dollars on the issue of another patent infringement. I found this article to be interesting because it is not the first time Apple and Samsung have gone to court over patents and I do not think this will be the last. It is interesting to see which two of the biggest tech giants will win the case. I like law and technology so combining the two into an interesting case attracted my attention.

E-waste haunts the digital age - 0 views

  •  
    For my excessively late article on computers and the environment i did it on a article discussing the issues of E-waste in the digital age. I love technology but I realize that the way that we dispose of our technology is unacceptable polluting other countries with the technology that we consider obsolete. We need to find a better way to dispose of our tech such as melting it down and re-using it as opposed to just shipping it to other countries to worry about.

Japan Makes Awesome Anime Of Its Latest Rocket Launch With NASA | Gizmodo Australia - 0 views

  •  
    The article talks about how Japan in the JAXA launched a rocket with NASA launched a rocket together to collect data on rainfall and snowfall, and Japan creates an anime on this. This isnèt really relevant for a bookmark but HEY its cool! Also I like anime. The article has anime and space tags for obvious reasons; it is about an anime based on a rocket to space. My thoughts on this are that I have to find this anime right away and I am wondering why they made an anime with a random rocket launch of NASA and JAXA.

Saving computers helps kids, environment | Ipswich Queensland Times - 0 views

  •  
    The people in this article all take old, used up and bad computers and make them new and better again. They are a non-profit organization who gives the computers back to the schools who are sending them. They are both helping the environment and helping the children learn through the computers that they make. This connects to computers and the environment because the people in this organization are doing what they can to help out by fixing computers, therefore helping the environment by reducing the amount of computers thrown out. My thoughts about this are that what these people are doing is a good thing, though more people should be helping with what they do, however I am not sure if this is a sustainable action, since it takes time and sometimes money to fix computers.

7 Free Image Hosting Sites for Your Photos - 0 views

  •  
    For uploads of images and the like. Imgur is the leader in free image hosting, with a simple to use image hosting service with no extra perks. One of the things that I like about imgur are the small links, because they are very copy/pastable. Second in line, is flickr. Less like imgur, and more like a social networking site. It is geared more towards sharing. It contains massive amounts of storage for your photos, 1TB to be exact, just by signing up. So flickr seems to be more personalized than imgur, and that's not a problem. For a commoner like me, I'd just rather use imgur. Expect a photographer to use flickr. Next up is photobucket which is the same as flickr in many regards. Imageshack is an alternative to imgur if you want crop your image or add special effects after you finish uploading. Freeimagehosting.net is sort of a competitor... and the last two happen to be gimmicks, postimage.org and imgplace.com
