Smoke detectors … the last thing you never think about … just after your thermostat. Nest, the company who put the thermostat on the map, is now in the business of smoke detectors and I have the email to prove it.
The Nest Protect, “the next big thing idea from Nest,” can alert you to an emergency, where the emergency is coming from, i.e. upstairs bedroom, downstairs bathroom, etc. as well as alert you via your smartphone when the batter is low. Pretty neat. You can pre order the device here. More info after the jump. Continue reading
I’m a big fan of new technology … but I think the rumors of the upcoming launch of the iPhone 5S having a biometric fingerprint reader are, well, false. But why do I think it won’t be there? The real question is why would it? Look at the last several iPhone iterations … see any major additional features beside case, processor and storage updates? Nope. See any sci-fi type security integrations besides pinlock? Nope.
It’s not that I don’t think Apple is capable of adding it in, it’s just that I don’t see the need for it. I wonder how many people actually use a pin to have to unlock their phone. Continue reading

Introducing the free Adoo to-do list and task manager, the simple mobile to-do app that gets things done with the swipe of your finger for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Ditch the checkmark and swipe your to-do’s to the left to complete or to the right to do later.
When I started out to make the new mobile to-do list app Adoo, I wanted something simple enough to use that I spent the least amount of time in the app and more time actually finishing my to-do’s. Productivity was the ultimate goal. Secondly, I wanted to ditch the checkmark or tick. It’s been used since the Romans and to be honest, I feel like to-do lists are all the same so that’s why I added in a really cool swipe-to-done function. Continue reading
