Digitsole introduces wearable “smart” insoles

When it comes to insoles, I am extremely stubborn about them. Even after being advised by my podiatrist that I would continue having to deal with tendonitis without them, I still opted not to wear them. But thanks to Digitsole’s advancements in the field of insole functionality, I might be changing my tune in the near future. Even better, it’s a wearable that can’t be seen – thus cutting down on the nerdy stigma of visible wearables. No offense, Glassholes.

The Labor Day Weekend binge-watching guide

Is there anything better than a long weekend? Yes. A long weekend spent doing absolutely nothing. Sure, I have plans to go hiking and to a baseball game but for the most part I will be on my couch enjoying my air conditioning, drinking iced coffee and binge-watching to my heart’s content. But Hannah, there’s so much to watch – how can you even decide where to start? Great question, hypothetical reader. I’ve combed the recent streaming additions to our favorite streaming sites, and I’ve selected your best options for this special Labor Day Weekend.

All USB cables are hideous compared to crafted LifeStar

To most people, myself included, a USB cable is little more than a mandatory accessory used to power and sync our gadgets. It’s there when you need it, but gets pushed or tucked away once it’s done the job. Few people like having desk clutter, especially when the objects are so mundane.

ChargeSpot enables businesses to offer wireless charging for both Qi and PMA devices

The technology industry loves format wars, so it’s no surprise that there’s another one going on in the emerging and very exciting field of wireless device charging. That’s where the heroes come in — the companies that develop products that support both battling standards before one of them prevails.

SmartWallet is exactly what it sounds like, and it hopes to be filled with sweet, sweet Kickstarter cash

It seems like every object is getting smarter these days, so why not your wallet?

Oxford adds “YOLO,” “adorbs,” “side boob,” more to dictionary; language snobs be like, “SMDH”

Ain’t no (lame) party like a language snob party. The easily outraged have found another reason to be outraged, as the Oxford Dictionary has added dozens of new words, many of them derived from the web and social media, to OxfordDictionaries.com.

MaCO magnetic cable tie is perfect for headphones, mobile

Although technological advances have been marching us toward environments of wireless-everything, cables are still a reality. Even if you don’t mind how they coil about and criss-cross everywhere, wires still require management. Unless you really, truly don’t care. But the rest of us prefer to have a little organization and tidiness.

TechnologyTell Review: Blackfire Clamplight LED Lantern

The Blackfire Clamplight LED Lantern reminds me of a work/trouble light with a camping lantern’s influence. I think it’s the handle shape and how the Clamplight looks when hanging upside-down. This light looks and feels well-built and rugged. The water-resistant, matte black exterior is smooth, but not slick to hold.

Snooze alarms with single gestures, now on Amazon Fire Phone

The changing of the guard, as night trades places with day, is a beautiful thing to behold. Most of us don’t get to enjoy the luxury of sunlight creeping in rooms to gently rouse sleeping bodies. Nope. Instead, people choose to be sonically attacked by an alarm during the depths of slumber.

Booq Cobra pack, perfect backpack for mobile professionals

If you’re a professional with a great career, you likely understand that appearances do count. If not for those you work or interact with, at least for your own self and image. I, for one, fully believe that people make judgments based on how we look and what we accessorize with. Everything from choice of clothes down to the devices we carry can speak volumes about who we are (or want to be). Like it or not, impressions count.

Colfax Smart Pack melds wireless tech, power, with urban appeal

When wearable tech is a topic of discussion, it usually covers such things as smartwatches, Google Glass, fitness trackers, and such. Those devices are more common and of a wider variety, of course. When it comes to gadgets and wearables, it’s easy to overlook that everyday bag or backpack. The bag that carries all your stuff says as much about you as any other type of fashion accessory.
