It’s nice to have a little extra juice for your phone without having to carry around an extra battery or a bulky charger specifically for one model. Enter Powerocks Super Magicstick. It’s a cylindrical shaped power bank that resembles either a lipstick case or maybe a small cigar, depending on the way you look at it, which can charge most smartphones at least once and maybe even twice.
When I first heard about the camera on the Nokia Lumia 1020, my jaw dropped. 41 megapixels? I mean that had to be a joke, right? Why would you ever need that many pixels in a photo taken by a cellphone unless you’re planning on taking wall-mural selfies? (And if you are, make sure it goes on a bathroom wall.)
Still, I was excited to try out the phone.
With kids tuning in at a much younger age than before, reports have found that millions of children ages three and up are being affected by some sort of hearing loss due to their exposure to noise. And while noise can come from a number of sources, two supposed culprits, which should be of no surprise to anyone, are headphones and earbuds. So KidzSafe has come up with a solution that not only has volume-limiting technology built right into them, they’re also fun and fully customizable for the little ones.
If you’re looking a tablet, there are a lot of options out there. Of course, there are couple of different iPads to choose from and a veritable army of droids, but generally speaking Windows tablets don’t get the same kind of notice. Part of this may be because, until the last couple of years, the mobile Windows experience was frankly just terrible. And while Microsoft improved thw OS with Windows Phone 7 and 8, the nice thing about Windows tablets, now, is that they’re advanced enough that they don’t necessarily need a mobile version of Windows to run on them.
Granted, many Windows tablets run on Windows RT, which, strictly speaking, is a mobile version of Windows for devices based on the ARM architecture. (This is the most common architecture for tablets as most Android tablets use ARM processors.) But it is a full OS, offering much of the same functionality as Windows 8. My main issue with Windows RT devices is that since the OS has been optimized for a different architecture than your desktop (or laptop), you can only run programs on it that you can find RT versions for – usually through the Windows Store. So even if I could find an RT version for every program I could ever want, I instinctively lean towards tablets that run Windows 8. And one of those that’s worth a look is the Dell Latitude 10…
