ARTRAGE FOR IPAD WINS 2014 PARENTS’ CHOICE GOLD AWARD 

Wins for Digitally Imitating Professional Artist’s Tools & Paints
Creates 3 Dimensional Art Realism for Kids without the Mess

Special Pricing for Annual NAEA Convention (National Art Educators Association) Previews ArtRage for Android

March 29, 2014, San Francisco, CA – Ambient Design www.artrage.com, the leading award-winning creator of realistic art painting software for Mac, Windows, iPad and iPhone, announced today that ArtRage for iPad is the winner of the 2014 Parents’ Choice Gold Award for the Best Mobile Apps at: http://www.parents-choice.org/product.cfm?product_id=32397&StepNum=1&award=aw. Available immediately at the Apple iTunes Store, ArtRage for iPad is the most realistic art app and software helping kids become creative on the go without the mess. 

ArtRage was chosen for the Parents’ Choice Award because it does a “remarkable job of imitating not only the professional tools and paints of artists, but also the 3 dimensional way artistic mediums react and build on a canvas,” said Parents’ Choice.  “For example, a hunk of oil paint can be squeezed out of a tube of paint and it sits realistically on your canvas waiting to be spread and molded with great accuracy using a palette knife, brush, or any of the other tools.  Any tool that is chosen can be manipulated using a finger or a stylus,” they concluded. 

ArtRage Exhibiting at National Art Educators Association – Previewing ArtRage for Android 

ArtRage will be exhibiting at the NAEA 2014, the annual convention of the National Art Educators Association, March 29-31, 2014 in San Diego.  At booth #632, the latest versions of ArtRage will be shown for Windows, Mac, iPad and iPhone and the upcoming version of ArtRage for Android will also be previewed.    

Parents’ Choice Champions Importance of Quality Children’s Media   

The Parents’ Choice Awards is the nation’s oldest nonprofit program recognizing quality children’s media to help parents and caregivers of all achievements and backgrounds make informed decisions about which new products are right for their children.  For more than thirty-three years, the Parents’ Choice Awards have honored the best products for children:  books, toys, music, storytelling, magazines, software, videogames, television and websites.  With a panel of educators, scientists, performing artists, librarians, parents, and even kids themselves, the Parents’ Choice Awards identify the very best products for children of different ages, backgrounds, skills and interest levels.   

“We are honored to win the Parents’ Choice Award for the best mobile products that entertain and teach with flair, stimulate imagination and inspire creativity,” said Matthew Fox Wilson, Creative Director and Co-founder, Ambient Design.  “ArtRage is a great way to get kids, teens, and adults of all ages interested in art and developing their creativity.  ArtRage is used in thousands of schools and dozens of museums to teach art.” 

Let Your Inner Van Gogh Out with ArtRage for iPad  

ArtRage for iPad lets you become a mobile digital artist on your iPad, providing the experience of actually “painting” digitally on an iPad canvas with oil paints that smear and blend, and watercolors that flow together to create soft, wet gradations, just as they would in a traditional art studio.  “If you’ve always dreamed of putting paint to canvas and letting your inner Van Gogh out, then you should check out the ArtRage app for iPad,” said Parents’ Choice.  “Whether aged 4 or 12 or 50 years old, if you are feeling creative, then you can summon that urge using this great $5 natural media painting app. It models real-world paints, brushes, tools, and canvases to let you paint, draw, blend, and create on screen.”  

ArtRage for iPad Features include:

·        Realistic color blending.

·        Paint Strokes:  High quality rendered strokes show the amount of paint on the canvas.

·        Oil Brush and Airbrush:  With thickness and smearing.

·        Palette Knife: For spreading and blending pigment.

·        Unlimited:  Unlimited Layers, Undo, Redo, and Color Samples.

New York Times Features iDevices iGrill2 by Jesse McKinley!
 

The iDevices Bluetooth meat thermometer ($39.99 to $99.99) was among the consumer gadgets, gizmos and kitchen, bath and living-room accessories on display at the International Home and Housewares Show, the four-day extravaganza held earlier this week in Chicago.

Interacting with your food was the idea behind the products made by a Connecticut firm called iDevices, which is committed to using smartphones to save America from undercooked pork and desiccated turkey. The iGrill 2 (available in May for about $100) is a thermometer that uses four small probes to allow users to control how their meat is done — rare, medium, etc. — and then sends them a cellphone alert when the meat is ready. (Note: You do not place your smartphone in the oven with the thermometer.)

The iGrill 2 was in the show’s Wired and Well expo, along with other high-tech innovations.

The One Bluetooth Speaker to Buy
Men’s Journal Selects foxL DASH7 as “The One Bluetooth Speaker to Buy” - MJ Approved
FoxL Dash 7

Bluetooth speakers haven't flooded the market – they've drowned it, crowding physical store shelves and online outlets with a seemingly endless supply of devices, most from little-known brands. Take Soundmatters, for example, and its inexplicably named FoxL Dash 7, which doesn't have the grabby design of some competitors, but carries a premium price tag.

And yet, this has been our go-to Bluetooth speaker for months. It's remarkably thin (0.44 inches), making it easy to slide into a coat or jacket pocket while running out the door. It can fill a room with clean, clear audio while laid flat on its back, with more bass and battery life (12 hours) than expected from something so small.

But what it does better than any Bluetooth speaker we've tested is sync up correctly with audio from movies and TV shows, when paired with a tablet or laptop. With other models, there's often a slight but deal-breaking lag between on-screen video and the accompanying sound, putting lip movement just ahead of audible dialogue. The Dash 7 has never committed that sin, pumping perfectly aligned audio that, when aimed directly at your face, is also surprisingly expansive, wrapping around like the left and rear-channel components of a surround-sound system. Bottom line: It's a wonderfully rich speaker that's up for any task, whether you're listening to Matthew McConaughey's morose ramblings on True Detective or lounging on some sandy, sun-speckled beach.

WHAT’S COOKING? VIKING RANGE, LLC PARTNERS UP WITH IDEVICES FOR CONNECTED PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT 

Avon, CT, February 5, 2014 – iDevices®, a leading product and app development company, specializing in the Bluetooth® and Wi-Ficonnected market, has been selected by Viking Range®, LLC as its partner for developing innovative, wirelessly connected Viking Professional products.  

The partnership will kick off with the development of a wireless temperature-monitoring system to be implemented into the Viking Professional 7 Series Range.  A Bluetooth Smart temperature-monitoring device designed and developed by iDevices will be retrofitted into the Viking 7 Series Range and will connect to users’ smart devices through the iDevices Connected app (available immediately for iOS devices with Android compatibility to launch in late 2014).  

“The Internet of Things is experiencing unprecedented growth and consumer brands are quickly realizing the need to develop products to meet consumer demand,” said Chris Allen, Chief Executive Officer of iDevices. “This relationship demonstrates the advancement of the technology and the role it will play in consumers’ everyday lives.”   

With the wireless temperature monitoring system, Viking temperature probe, and free iDevices Connected app, Viking Professional 7 Series Range owners will be able to conveniently indicate what they are cooking in their free iDevices Connected app, leave the temperature probe in the food, and receive an alert on their smart device once the food is cooked to the desired temperature.  The app also offers exclusive recipes, temperature graphing, social sharing and customizable timers.  

The Viking Professional 7 Series Range, the most premier Viking range yet, features 23,000 BTU Elevation Burners™ with brass flame ports adapted from the Viking Commercial product line, combined with a full-featured convection oven to create a restaurant-caliber range unlike any other in the residential market.  

“We continue to develop product and innovation that helps the Viking customer be the best home chef possible,” said Kevin Brown, VP Engineering for Viking Range, LLC. “We are excited about this partnership and the initiatives to provide the best products for our customers.” 

“Viking is already one of the most exceptional brands in the appliances market,” said Mike Daigle, chief operations officer of iDevices. “The combination of Viking’s top-of-the-line product with our leading-edge wireless connectivity should make this range one of the most advanced in the market.”

Mr. An Xiaopeng, Deputy Director General of the IT Industry Department, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT), said that China’s IT sales revenue reached $1.78 trillion and China manufactures over 50% of the world’s mobile phones, computers, and TVs.  Mr. Xiaopeng also said that China produces the world’s largest volume of electronic components and parts and has become the world’s hub for manufacturing, R & D, and procurement for the global consumer electronics and IT industry.  See Xiaopeng’s full speech presented at the CITE 2014 press conference held at CES at: http://www.thomas-pr.com/cite/DirectorPresentationatCITEEventatCES2014.doc, Powerpoint presentation at: http://www.thomas-pr.com/cite/CITE2014Introduction.pptx

China has 1.2 Billion Mobile Phone Users & 500 Million Internet Users, 270 Million Online Shoppers  

At the press conference, Mr. Xiaopeng added that China has the largest number of mobile phone users in the world at 1.2 billion and the largest number of Internet users at 500 million, with 270 million shopping online and 132 million setting up travel plans online.  On one day alone, on November 11th, 2013 (a day named by Chinese youth as “Online Shopping Day” – like Black Friday/Cyber Monday in the U.S.), $5.6 billion worth of sales were made on Alibaba.com’s e-commerce platform.  The Alibaba site attracted 17 million shoppers at peak time, resulting in 188 million transactions and 152 million shipments.

CITE 2014 Helps U.S. & International Companies Profit from the Large Asian Marketplace   

U.S. and international companies can profit from this large Asian marketplace potential by gaining business contacts and Asian information at CITE 2014.  Scheduled for April 10-12, 2014 at the Shenzhen Convention and Exhibition Center in Shenzhen, China, the 2nd annual CITE 2014 is the place to grow business and showcase the latest IT and consumer electronics technologies, products and innovation from around the world.  Jointly organized by the Ministry of Industry and Information  Technology (MIIT) and the Shenzhen Municipal Government of P.R.

In addition, there will be industry forums and seminars on the top 30 hot topics, including China’s industry chain, 4G, smartphones, smart TVs, wearable technologies, security systems and cloud computing.  

CITE 2014 provides a unique opportunity for U.S. companies to showcase their new brands, technologies, and innovations to Chinese and Asian distributors and the emerging Chinese marketplace with a new American Pavilion.  Unlike other Asian trade shows that focus on selling Chinese products to U.S. companies, CITE is geared to help U.S. companies sell their products into the Asian market, by organizing the attendance of numerous high quality Chinese distributors and dealers and providing on-site business matchmaking programs in a “one on one” format, with qualified supplier introduction meetings, purchase preferences, and supply meetings. 

New in 2014, CITE is launching Exhibit Zones to assist exhibitors with optimal booth locations, with zones focusing on mobile smart devices, computers, networking equipment, digital audio/video devices, software/apps, information services, the internet, cloud computing, integrated circuits, flat panel displays, LEDs, lithium batteries, solar energy, new electronic components and materials, automotive, financial, and medical technologies.

PRESS ALERT: 

PlusUs Delivers Solution for Samsung & Apple Portable Devices

 

Problem: Samsung and Apple dominate over 50% of the global portable device market with their innovative and desirable products.  Yet this innovation has not been extended to their 1 meter USB cables, which have mostly remained unchanged for years (with the exception of Apple’s lightning connector part). This one-size-fits-all approach forces users to carry their bulky cables with them in order to keep their devices charged on-the-go.   These common cables fail to address the widespread demand for portable and storable cables -- for devices to be truly portable, they need a truly portable cable. 

Solution:  PlusUs, a startup founded by 3 innovators from Perth, Australia, has developed LifeLink (patent-pending) - a new class of cable that addresses the demand for portability and easy storage.  The world’s thinnest cable, at only 2 credit cards thin, LifeLink is 70% thinner than Samsung’s and Apple’s cables When stored, LifeLink is the length of a credit card, easily fitting in a wallet, purse or even a keychain. This gives users the peace of mind of having their Micro USB or Lighting cable with them at all times. With USB ports in cars, airplanes, at work, hotels, in TVs, tablets and even with battery banks, the LifeLink cable is a must-have companion to a smartphone and tablet. 

LifeLink’s clever design allows it to double its length to 7 inches (180mm), longer than other compact cables allowing devices to be used while charging.  LifeLink includes other innovations, such as the unique perforated design that increases flexibility for reaching into tight locations and a Teflon covered cable for superior durability.  

After only 1 week, LifeLink exceeded its pre-order campaign goals. The cable is still available for pre-order for a limited time at getlifelink.com for $19, after which it will retail for $24.  Shipping is in early 2014.  Helping the community:  a portion of every LifeLink ordered will be contributed to a cause of the customer’s choice:  help educate a child in Nepal, provide shelter for a family in India, or contribute towards building water wells in Ethiopia.

Holiday Gift Guide: 4 Gadgets For Athletes
 
Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday are behind us, so I guess the 2013 holiday shopping season is in full gear. If you made it through the opening weekend with any money left, and you’re still in search of great gift ideas, here are four gadgets or devices to consider buying for your more active or athletic friends or family.

Forbes Features Thomas PR Clients SensoGlove & Golf-X-Cube in Holiday Gift Guide “4 Gadgets For Athletes”!
SensoGlove

Golf is a very popular sport. It is an exercise in sadomasochism that can be quite fun and relaxing if you do it right. That’s where the SensoGlove may be able to help.

Many amateur golfers have a natural tendency to want to swing a golf club like it’s a vertical baseball bat—gripping the club as if they’re trying to choke the life out of it and swinging with maximum force as if they’re trying to ring the bell at one of those carnival games. The reality is that proper form yields significantly better results than brute force.

You want to hold the club firmly enough to maintain control and not have it fly out of your hands and go farther down the fairway than your golfball. But, you also want a grip that is not too tense. You have to find a balance between gripping the club lightly, but tightly enough at the same time.

The SensoGlove is a soft cabretta leather golf glove with sensors in the fingertips and a small computer that clips to the glove on the back of your hand. The sensors detect how firmly you’re gripping the club, and the computer provides both visual and audible feedback to let you know if you’re gripping the club too tightly.

The computer operates on CR1620 watch style batteries which you can easily replace. If you wear the actual glove out, you can purchase a replacement glove from SensoGlove, and just snap the computer module onto it. The SensoGlove costs $89 on the website, and replacement gloves without the computer cost $22.48. There is also a value pack that comes with both SensoGloves for both your right and left hands for only $132.94—a significant savings over buying each separately.

Forbes Features Thomas PR Clients SensoGlove & Golf-X-Cube in Holiday Gift Guide “4 Gadgets For Athletes”!
Golf-X-Cube

The next gift idea continues to golfing theme, but it’s less of a “gadget” than the other items on this list. The Golf-X-Cube is literally just a block of green plastic. There aren’t any computers or electronics involved at all.

The concept behind the Golf-X-Cube is ingenious in its simplicity. The Golf-X-Cube is dark green on the very top, while the rest of it is a lighter yellow-green. To use it, you simply place it on the ground in front of you while you are practicing.

Just as with the golf grip, the goal of the golf swing is to execute proper form, not swing with every muscle and beat the ball as hard as you can. It’s important to rotate your torso, and shift your weight properly for the correct golf swing, and the Golf-X-Cube helps you achieve that motion.

When you’re in the proper position over the Golf-X-Cube, all you can see is the dark green top. The goal is to maintain that position throughout the swing motion. If you sway back or forward during the swing rather than rotating properly, the lighter green plastic will become visible.

The Golf-X-Cube is small enough to toss in your bag and take with you to the driving range, or try it out on a golf course if you like. It costs $33.95 and comes with a DVD that walks you through proper swing technique and how to use the Golf-X-Cube effectively.

HEALTHY NINJA LAUNCHES DELICIOUS HEALTHY FROZEN DESSERT TO HELP KIDS & ADULTS GET FIT

High Protein, High Fiber Low-Fat Performance Dessert
Now Available in 39 Whole Foods Stores
for Kids, Teens, Adults, & Athletes -- Promotes Better Health & Fitness

Gourmet Treat for Holiday Parties – Keep Fit during the Holidays
Created by Chefs from Berkeley’s Top Restaurant, Chez Panisse 
 

December 2, 2013, San Ramon, CA -- Healthy Ninja www.healthyninja.net launched today Healthy Ninja, a new high protein, high fiber delicious frozen dessert.  Available in Strazzleberry (strawberry/raspberry, with more flavors coming soon) at 39 Whole Food Stores in California and expanding nationally, Healthy Ninja is a high performance gourmet ice cream dessert, combination of high protein and high fiber created by a collaboration of Healthy Ninja and chefs from the famous Berkeley, California restaurant, Chez Panisse.   

All Natural Ingredients for Kids, Athletes, Health & Fitness Fans 

Geared for kids, athletes, dieters, and health and fitness fans, Healthy Ninja is a tasty all-natural frozen dessert that pumps up school nutrition, combats childhood obesity, and provides high fiber and protein for dieters and athletes.  Healthy Ninja combines the fruit and vegetable food groups that the USDA recommends that should be ½ of your plate at every meal, helping kids reduce calories and weight while increasing their intake of more nutritional foods.  Children love the taste and are drawn to the packaging and adults are impressed with the health benefits and natural ingredients:  strawberries, water, raspberries, cane sugar, dried milk powder, dried bean flour, lemon juice, almond paste, chia seeds, ascorbic acid, guar gum, milk, and tree nuts.  “This is what kids should eat instead of going to the vending machine,” said Rich Thornton, former Olympic swimmer and head SRLVA swim coach, San Ramon, California. 

Athletes Love it Post Work-Out: Frozen or as a Smoothie – Higher in Fiber than Greek Yogurt

Healthy Ninja can be enjoyed as a workout recuperative treat frozen as ice cream or as a smoothie when melted post-workout, after a bike ride, or hike.  Healthy Ninja is higher in fiber than Greek yogurt:  Healthy Ninja has 6 grams of fiber, most yogurts have no fiber (see nutritional comparison chart at: http://www.thomas-pr.com/136/photos/healthyninjanutrition.html).  Healthy Ninja also combines the power of beans for protein and fiber with Chia seed, which absorbs 9 times its weight in water making you feel fuller longer to assist in weight management.  In addition, Chia seeds give you a performance edge by prolonging hydration to retain electrolytes during exercise and exertion.  The strawberries and raspberries also provide vitamins and antioxidants to give you and your family a dessert or snack that can be enjoyed with good health at any time of the day. 

Fitness, health experts and doctors alike agree on the importance of fiber in the diet.  The Mayo Clinic Institute of Medicine 2012 recently listed the benefits of fiber (see article at: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/fiber/NU00033) : 

  • Lowers cholesterol levels:  soluble fiber found in beans, oats, flaxseed and oat bran may help lower total blood cholesterol levels by lowering low-density lipoprotein or “bad” cholesterol levels.  Studies also have shown that fiber may have other heart-health benefits, such as reducing blood pressure and inflammation.

  • Helps control blood sugar levels:  in people with diabetes, fiber (particularly soluble fiber) can slow the absorption of sugar and help improve blood sugar levels.  A healthy diet that includes insoluble fiber may also reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

  • Aids in achieving healthy weight:  high-fiber foods generally require more chewing time, which gives your body time to register when you’re no longer hungry, so you’re less likely to overeat.  Also, a high-fiber diet tends to make a meal feel larger and linger longer, so you stay full for a greater amount of time. And high-fiber diets also tend to be less “energy dense,” which means they have fewer calories for the same volume of food.

Stay on Your Diet in the Holidays 

Healthy Ninja is great to help you stay on your diet during the holiday season when most people gain 5-10 pounds.  A delicious festive dessert for Christmas, Holiday and New Year’s parties, Healthy Ninja can help keep you fit during the challenging end of year holiday season.  Available immediately at select Whole Foods Markets, Berkeley Bowl Market, and other retailers, Healthy Ninja has a suggested retail price of $7.99 for 1 pint.  For more information on Healthy Ninja, see the Website:  www.healthyninja.net, Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Healthy-Ninja/599718030048463,   Twitter: www.twitter.com/HealthyNinjaKR.

URBAN XPLORER LAUNCHES VINTAGE INSPIRED
AFFORDABLE LUXURY BACKPACK LINE
 
HalfPack RT “Road Trip” Backpacks are Rugged, Multi-Functional for Business or Road Trips with an American Classic Design for Your Inner Explorer
 
REVO Rapid Expand System Lets You Expand or Contract the Bag in Seconds
Discounted on Kickstarter for a Limited Time - Campaign Starts November 15th
 

November 19, 2013, El Dorado Hills, CA – Urban Xplorer www.xplorerbrand.com, creators of vintage inspired quality travel and lifestyle products that help people “Xplore” the world around them, announced today the Urban Xplorer® HalfPack RT line of “affordable luxury” backpacks. HalfPack RT (“RT” for Road Trip) is the first in Urban Xplorer’s affordable luxury line of stylish travel bags and gear.  

Designed not just as a bag, but as multi-functional, customizable travel gear with a vintage American classic design, HalfPack RT can be used as a business and overnight bag for business trips and then transformed as casual travel gear for weekend road trips.  HalfPack RT easily transitions from the formal to the informal with detachable backpack straps, adjustable shoulder straps and multiple pockets and compartments to hold laptops, tablets, phones, accessories, paperwork, clothing, shoes and more to accommodate your needs. 

Weatherproof and Stain Resistant NylonUX Ballistic Fabric for a Timeless Vintage Style 

Available in designer colors of Brooklyn Bronze, Electric Burnt Orange, and Classic Black, HalfPack RT is made of weatherproof and stain resistant NylonUX™ Ballistic Fabric 1680D, with customizable cotton/polyester straps, leather accents, steel hardware, multiple side pockets, with additional storage space from Seattle Stuff Sack™ and CaliCooler™.  HalfPack RT is the best messenger bag and the best laptop bag on the market.  Excellent for use as a backpack for school, laptop backpack, or for use as a business or travel bag, HalfPack RT is named after its functionality as a half backpack + messenger  + classic business bag that incorporates modern day functionality with a timeless vintage style.  

Features REVO™ (Rapid - Expansion - Volume – Options) System 

The HalfPack RT features Urban Xplorer’s unique REVO design concept (Rapid Expansion Volume Options), which lets you adjust the functionality of the gear by the integration of customization features and accessories.  The bag can be physically expanded or contracted according to your needs, with additional storage space provided by the Seattle Stuff Sack™ customizable add-on pouch that attaches conveniently to the bottom or front side of the bags and other options.  HalfPack RT can function as a backpack with the backpack strap attached or as a briefcase by carrying it with the genuine leather wrapped handle.  It also functions as a messenger bag by storing the detachable backpack strap in the hideaway pouch and attaching the included long shoulder strap. This innovative REVO design system lets you choose the bag that you like and then customize it to fit your unique style and requirements.   

“Before HalfPack RT, finding a quality made bag that was stylish, functional, customizable and yet affordable seemed impossible,” said Todd Fujiwara, President, Urban Xplorer.  “Backpacks are generally low quality with low functionality.  And typically if you desire a ‘quality’ made bag that is highly functional, you have to pay upwards of $300.  With HalfPack RT, we’ve created a luxury bag at an affordable sub $200 price point.”  

HalfPack RT Features:

PLUSUS ANNOUNCES LIFELINK –
WORLD’S THINNEST SMARTPHONE CABLE
Ultra-Portable Design Makes Charging On-The-Go Easy
 

No More Bulky, Messy, Easy to Forget Cables - Keep in your Wallet, Purse or with Keys

Don’t Get Stranded with a Dead Phone without a Cable -

Patent-Pending Ultra-Compact Flexible Strong Teflon® Cables
Full 360 Degree Maneuverability and Flexibility
Charge & Sync Apple Lightning, 30 Pin and Micro USB Android devices
 

November 5, 2013, Australia – PlusUs, getlifelink.com, developers of radical technology products that make staying connected easier, announced today LifeLink™, the world’s thinnest, most compact smartphone cable.  LifeLink is an ultra-portable smart cable that’s easy to carry in your wallet, purse, or even with your keys, so you are never caught without your Micro USB, Lightning, 30-pin cable when you need to charge or sync your device.  At only 2 credit cards thin (0.098 inches  or 2.5mm), LifeLink gives you the ultimate convenience of portability.  The patent-pending design lets LifeLink expand from the length of a credit card to more than double the length (7 inches or 178 mm), so that you can easily access your device while charging and synching.

Solves the Epidemic of Forgotten Cables When You’re On-the-Go

To solve the epidemic of forgotten cables when you are on the go, LifeLink’s iconic design had to be radical.  “Everyone is terrified of being caught stranded without a cable and a dead phone.  Let’s face it, smartphones have gotten smarter but their cables have not.  They're bulky, messy and easy to forget.  Our devices are portable but why shouldn’t our cables be?  PlusUs broke the rules in order to deliver an ultra-compact portable cable, while still securing durability and flexibility,” said Fays Sekkouah, Co-Founder, PlusUs.

 

LifeLink’s slim red cable is toughened with heavy-duty Teflon, so it is very durable, while still allowing 360º maneuverability and the ability to open to double its size.  The perforated overmolds contrast beautifully with the red cable, yet are engineered to add more flexibility.

3 Versions to Fit Your Device

LifeLink is available for all Apple devices (Lightning and 30-pin) and Android / Blackberry devices (Micro USB). At only 3.35” length x 0.98” height x 0.87” width (85 mm x 2.5mm x 22mm) and a light-weight design of just 0.21ounces (6 grams), it is extremely compact when folded.

Available for Pre-Order for Limited Time

LifeLink will retail for $24.  For a limited time only, it is available for pre-order at $14 with the coupon code “getlifelink” The price will continue to rise during the pre-order campaign. Go to getlifelink.com and be one of the first to own LifeLink. The product ships this Winter.

Changing the World One LifeLink at a Time

LifeLink goes beyond making a difference to the way you charge on the go.  With every LifeLink ordered, PlusUs contributes towards a cause of your choice, such as providing education for a child, shelter for a family, or clean water for a community. Find out more here: getlifelink.com

About PlusUs

Macworld Australia on foxl DASH7 - Awarded 5 out of 5 Mice Rating - Editor's Pick: "It’s one of those 'Wow!' products that never fails to put a smile on your face, and we have no hesitation in giving Soundmatters another perfect score and an Editor’s Pick."

Soundmatters foxL DASH7
Sound & Image, www.foxl.com.au

Pros
Excellent audio for the size; well-built; great for travellers
Cons
None – even the price is good
$259


Reviews In 2011 we reviewed the foxL v2.2 Bluetooth speaker from Soundmatters, declaring it “definitely something special”, saying its audio quality was “nothing short of astounding for a hand-sized unit” and giving it a score of 4.5 mice.

Then in 2012 we followed that up with a review of the Platinum edition, which took its quality a step further. That time it scored a perfect 5 mice. Both times we awarded it an Editor’s Pick.

Now it’s late 2013 and, after a number of delays, the foxL DASH7 is available in Australia. It’s similar to the v2 Series speakers in many aspects, but differs from them in one big way – it’s flat where the others are chunky.

The DASH7 is 5.3cm wide, 19cm long and 1.8cm thick, which makes it a bit narrower than an iPhone 5, 50 percent longer and twice as thick.

It has a black front grille and back, with a side band in white, black or red. To the right side of the grille are two volume buttons and another for power and Bluetooth control.

Behind the grille are two speakers and a BassBattery, which is the same configuration as the V2 Series.

The former are ‘Twoofers’ – tweeters that also woof – that deliver 2W of power when powered by the rechargeable battery or USB, and 4W when plugged into mains power via the 5V Power In jack.

The BassBattery is a rechargeable Lithium-ion battery combined with an acoustic bass radiator – an unpowered panel which extends the bass by resonating at a frequency lower than the active Twoofers.

Put together, they produce a sound that belies the DASH7′s size and is just as amazing as that of the V2 range. It’s rich and detailed with a beautiful balance across the tonal range.

It’s best when placed relatively close to you – in front of the iPad on your desk, for instance – but can also sound excellent from across the room.

We gave it a long test over a couple of weeks, playing everything from Verdi, Bach and Benny Carter to Them Crooked Vultures, Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Lorde – and it didn’t disappoint us once.

There’s a good amount of bass evident, but more is easily available by hooking up Soundmatters’ $219 foxLO subwoofer to the DASH7′s dedicated Sub Out jack.

Macworld Australia on foxl DASH7 - Awarded 5 out of 5 Mice Rating - Editor's Pick: "It’s one of those 'Wow!' products that never fails to put a smile on your face, and we have no hesitation in giving Soundmatters another perfect score and an Editor’s Pick."

The unit is designed to be omnidirectional when resting flat, and to provide a more targeted sound when standing up against the included case/stand.

Rounding out the package are a 3.5mm audio-in jack, a noise-cancelling microphone that lets you use the speaker as a handsfree unit for phone calls, and a set of four wall power plugs for use in different countries.

Bottom line.

Almost all small Bluetooth speakers lack something – definition, bass, balance, power, etc – but there are no compromises you have to make with the foxL DASH7. It’s one of those “Wow!” products that never fails to put a smile on your face, and we have no hesitation in giving Soundmatters another perfect score and an Editor’s Pick.

SENSOGLOVE WINS GOLF MAGAZINE’S TECHY AWARDS 2013 

SensoGlove is World’s First Digital Golf Glove
Corrects “Death Grip” for Better, More Accurate & Powerful Golf Swing 

Created Based on Feedback from International PGA Professionals 

October 23, 2013, Aachen, Germany – Sensosolutions www.sensoglove.com, a leading provider of innovative IT systems for sports analysis, motion and performance measurement, announced today that Sensoglove, the  world’s first digital golf glove, has won the highly coveted GOLF Magazine’s 2013 Techy Awards.  Featured in GOLF Magazine’s November 2013 issue, the Techy Awards recognize state-of-the-art excellence in 20 categories across the golf game.  

In awarding SensoGlove in the Techiest Glove category, GOLF Magazine said, “A death grip is great for Darth Vader, but on a golf club it drains your power.  This training aid’s tiny sensors measure your grip pressure through the swing, alerting you when you use a choke hold.  It’s a futuristic flourish used as a force for good.”

Wall Street Journal on foxL DASH7 "Small Speakers, Mighty Sound" by Erik Sofge!

Wall Street Journal on foxL DASH7 "Small Speakers, Mighty Sound" by Erik Sofge!

Libratone Loop and foxL Dash7: Small Speakers, Mighty Sound
By blasting sound in all directions, two new speakers belie their size

WARM AND FUZZY Because the Dash7 (shown in front of an iPad) is just ¾-of-an-inch thick, it can sit in front of the screen without obstructing the view.

FRONT AND CENTER: Traditionally, that’s where you need to sit in relation to an audio speaker for it to sound the fullest. But two new models—which coax soundwaves to splay out to the left and right, as well as center—manage to envelop a room without overwhelming it.

Take, for instance, the foxL Dash7 (). You can think of this 7½-inch device as a soundbar for a tablet computer. Like a traditional television soundbar, the Dash7 is designed to span the width of a screen—in this case, that of an iPad or similar-size tablet. But unlike the most portable speakers, the Dash7 measures only ¾ inches deep. You can place it flat on a table, face up, in front of a propped-up tablet, and it will leave the image unobstructed. Yes, this leaves the Dash7 pointing toward the ceiling. But that’s not an issue, because the speaker is tweaked to disperse audio at a wide angle.

Despite the Dash7′s slimness, its audio quality is a huge improvement over the feeble speakers built into most tablets. The iPad, for example, projects sound from one end of the device, making for a lopsided experience when watching videos, and even the front-mounted stereo speakers on less sonically challenged tablets are tinny and hollow. Connect the Dash7 and you’ll notice a much-needed boost in volume and clarity.

The Dash7 can stream audio wirelessly over Bluetooth, and in our tests using an iPad to watch video, there was no lag between the sound and image that can plague other Bluetooth speakers. We also liked that the Dash7′s surprisingly grippy feet provide enough friction to function as a makeshift tablet stand. Lean your tablet against some books, and the Dash7 will keep the device from sliding forward.

Planon PS905 PrintStik – Printing Goes Mini
Submitted by Anil George on Mon, 09/02/2013 - 11:51

T3 Middle East Magazine on PlanOn PrintStik "This could well be in every techie’s must-have list"!

Great concept, perfection is a few OS upgrades away

In terms of first impressions, the Planon PS905 PrintStik ticks all the right boxes. Very handy miniscule size, pretty smooth design, and the fact that you don’t need to refill paper thanks to an inbuilt roll. The device is touted as the smallest mobile printer, handy to printout a missing Air Ticket, or a few random notes you typed in the night before. The portability element apart, definite highlights include minimal moving parts for printing and the thermal ink factor, meaning cost efficiency.

Installing the device was a synch, and soon enough we were printing a page. Interestingly, the paper roll is installed inside the device, meaning it’s just a question of attaching your device to the laptop and pressing Ctrl P. The paper prints at a decent speed, the spec sheet claims up to 3 pages per minute, it comes out in one of those thermal papers that you get at your ATM. Interestingly enough, it doesn’t take in double spaces, meaning even if you type just 4 lines across an entire A4, the 4 get compressed and print. Pretty smart, that bit. Once the print is done, you merely tear out the paper.

The fact that you have to purchase the preloaded paper cartridge @ USD 29.99 for a set of 3 might seem an indulgence, but the thermal printing makes up for it in cost. Now, on to the not so great side… Lets assume lack of support for USB 3.0 is okay, but this device doesn’t support Windows 7, Windows 8 or Android. Huge downers, those.

Still, with OS Support updated, this could well be in every techie’s must-have list. The brand is constantly getting in the ‘first ever’ category [they recently launched the world’s smallest full page color scanner, which can scans with voice recordings to mobile devices], so we could expect an upgrade soon enough….

GOLF-X-CUBE ANNOUNCES ULTIMATE GOLF TRAINING TOOL --

 QUICKLY DEVELOP A RELIABLE, REPETITIVE SWING

IN AS FAST AS 15 MINUTES 

Patent-Pending GOLF-X-CUBE Training Tool Improves Your Golf Handicap &

Protects You from Back Injury -- Small, Fits Perfectly in a Golf Bag 

August 29, 2013, Quakenbrück, Germany Golf-X-Cube www.golf-x-cube.com, the golf experts and creators of patent-pending golf accessories and training tools that make golf easier and more enjoyable, announced today the GOLF-X-CUBE Training Tool, the ultimate training tool to teach you to play better golf in as quickly as 15 minutes.  GOLF-X-CUBE is a patent-pending training tool that fits easily in your golf bag, teaching you a reliable, repetitive swing to improve your handicap and make golf more fun.   

GOLF-X-CUBE is a UV-resistant polyamide reinforced cube with a hole on the bottom to insert a tee to keep it in place.  GOLF-X-CUBE sits in front of you, between you and the ball as you practice your swing to show you the proper golf stance, guiding you to hit the ball more consistently and straighter.  In as little as 15 minutes, you will see an improvement in your swing, and with 4-6 weeks of practice, your golf score will improve with better control of your body.   

Simple to Use -- Powerful Results – Includes Instructional Video DVD & User Manual 

The GOLF-X-CUBE Golf Training Tool is a visual tool which includes an instructional video DVD and user manual for training guidance.  It features a deep green colored top and neon-yellow sides that work as color guides to show you when you are swinging with the correct position. When looking at the guide from above and preparing a backswing, the yellow sides should not be seen.  If you see yellow sides, you are using too much upper body movement and need to try it again with a straighter position.  GOLF-X-CUBE is simple to use, with powerful results. 

Protect Yourself from Back Injury 

Most golfers don’t start playing golf until they are in their 40’s, 50’s or older, which makes it harder on their bodies to rotate using the correct angle and speed, leading to back injury.  This is why you see so many golfers taking medications for their backs and why it is crucial to learn the correct swing to protect your back when playing golf.  GOLF-X-CUBE shows you how a balanced swing should feel.  When you train with GOLF-X-CUBE, you will learn how to rotate your shoulders along the axis of the spine so you don’t have excessive sideways stress on your spinal column, the cause of most damage to discs.   

Priced at $33.95, GOLF-X-CUBE is available immediately from www.golf-x-cube.com at http://www.golf-x-cube.com/shop/de/training/1-golf-x-cube.html  and other major retailers.  GOLF-X-CUBE includes the cube visual aid tool, instructional video DVD, and manual.  For more information, see www.golf-x-cube.com.

IDEVICES ANNOUNCES MY VIRTUAL CLOSET

WEARABLE BLUETOOTH TECHNOLOGY & APP --

 Digitalizes Your Wardrobe

The My Virtual Closet app communicates with the fashion designer’s garments using Bluetooth Smart technology.  Through a discreetly placed package with a BLE chip and small coin cell battery within clothing, handbags, and shoes, designers and consumers will be able to interact like never before.  “My Virtual Closet is an idea that I had several months ago with the uproar in wearable technology,” said CEO of iDevices, Chris Allen.  “It’s something I think will not only revolutionize the in-store and at home experience for customers but will add unparalleled value for designers.”  

There are two elements to the My Virtual Closet app and wearable technology experience:

1. Point-of-sale:  The Virtual Shopping Assistant.

2. At home:  My Virtual Closet. 

Point-of-Sale:  The Virtual Shopping Assistant App Provides Garment Details, Inventory Look-Up, & Recommended Purchases 

The Virtual Shopping Assistant app is the first element, which is encountered by consumers in-store.  Bluetooth Smart enabled garments positioned throughout the store allow for self-guided shopping, meaning more flexibility for store representatives, higher sales revenues and a flawless store flow

The Virtual Shopping Assistant Features:

§         Product Information: displays full garment details, including descriptions, images, videos, care instructions, etc.

§         Inventory Look-Up: gives sales assistants and shoppers the ability to see in-store inventory and order online directly from the app.

§         In-App Recommendations: Increases in-store revenue through cross-sell opportunities.

§         Wish List:  shoppers are able to add items to their personal wish list for future purchase.

§         Social Sharing: shoppers can share in-store pieces on their social networks.

At Home – My Virtual Closet App Organizes Wardrobes, Builds Outfits, Shares with Friends 

The second element of My Virtual Closet takes place when the user is at home with their Bluetooth-enabled garments.  The My Virtual Closet App gives users an after-purchase experience never created before.  Using the app, users can organize, locate, share and piece together their wardrobe right from the palm of their hand.  

My Virtual Closet App Features: 

§         Organize Your Wardrobe: consumers can view and edit multiple wardrobes (i.e. home, beach house, apartment, and travel).

§         Build Outfits:  piece together an outfit based on current weather and coordinating recommendations.

§         After-Purchase Cross-Selling:  designers can recommend correlating pieces available for purchase online or at the nearest store location.

§         Share with Friends: lend and request to borrow wardrobe items with other My Virtual Closet fashionistas.

§         Individual Garment Data:  track the number of times worn, last location, most recent dry cleaning, total wears, date purchased and number of friends that own that piece.

§         Social Community:  share your outfits with your social network.

IDEVICES ANNOUNCES NEW UPDATED IGRILL APP

FOR IPHONE 5

 

Utilizes iPhone 5’s New Features, including Retina Display and 1.2 Megapixel HD Camera

 

iDevices Works with Companies to App-Enable their Products

 

September 20, 2012, Avon, CT – iDevices®, LLC, www.idevicesinc.com, the creator of the award-winning iGrill® Bluetooth® cooking thermometer at www.iGrillinc.com, announced today the new iGrill App for the newly announced iPhone 5 and iPod touch.  Available seven days prior to the iPhone 5 shipping, the iGrill app has been updated, approved by Apple, and available in the iTunes App Store, instantly utilizing some of the newest iPhone 5 features, including a clearer HD camera, a larger 4-inch on the diagonal retina display, and a single log-in for social media sites, like Facebook and Twitter.

 

iGrill App’s New iPhone 5 Features:

·        Retina Display:  clearer viewing of iGrill app through iPhone’s enhanced 1136x640 pixel resolution retina display across a 4-inch diagonal widescreen display.

·        Facebook:  integration with Facebook gives iGrill community a view of each other’s epicurean world (recently used by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, who uploaded his iGrill steak masterpiece to his page with thousands of hits on the iGrill site).

·        HD Camera:  1.2 megapixel HD camera allows users to upload crystal clear images of their food creations.

 

Bluetooth 4.0 Integration with iPhone 5

 

A new feature of the iPhone 5 is the further integration of Bluetooth 4.0, which was first introduced in the iPhone 4S.  The iPhone 5’s Bluetooth 4.0 technology works with “idevices,” creating a connection that consumes only a small percentage of the power of the previous version of Bluetooth 2.0.  It also enables devices to be powered by small, coin-cell batteries or paper thin batteries, both of which iDevices is in co-development with its partners.  This provides a significantly longer battery life and lower production cost.  In addition, Bluetooth 4.0 also diminishes the need for users to go through the pairing process to connect their devices, making Bluetooth 4.0 device an easier experience for the end user. 

 

“We are excited to see that Apple is focusing on the continued deployment of Bluetooth 4.0 technology with the iPhone 5.  It’s these types of enhancements from Apple that allow companies, like ourselves, to continue to release cutting edge app-enabled products to the consumer.  We are currently in development on a number of new Bluetooth 4.0 products and we are extremely excited to see the market’s reaction to these new products,” said Christopher Allen, CEO, iDevices, LLC. 

 

iDevices Consulting Works with Companies to App-Enable their Products

 

In addition to producing award winning Bluetooth products, including the iGrill meat thermometer and iShower water-resistant shower speaker, iDevices also helps other companies incorporate Bluetooth and Wi-Fi to app-enable their products with its iDevices Consulting Division.  “iDevices Consulting is already working with a number of companies to utilize our Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi expertise so they too can capitalize on this cutting edge technology to enhance their customers user experience with the iPhone 5. This new technology will broaden the capabilities for hundreds, if not thousands, of app-enabled products, with explosive growth over the next 12-18 months,” said Christopher Allen, CEO, iDevices, LLC.  “iDevices Consulting is extremely well positioned to take advantage of the new Bluetooth technology in this dynamic new market.”

PLANON ANNOUNCES NEW SCANSTIK SK600V

WORLD’S SMALLEST FULL PAGE COLOR SCANNER

WITH VOICE RECORDING & BLUETOOTH CONNECTIVITY

 

Pen-sized Scanner for Mobile Professionals Lets You Scan a Full Page at 600dpi

in 4 Seconds -- Adds Voice Notes & Sends to Your Computer and Mobile Devices

 

MISSISSAUGA, ON, July 11, 2013 – PlanOn System Solutions Inc. www.planon.com, the world leader in scanning and printing solutions for the mobile professional, announced today the ScanStik SK600V, the world’s smallest full page color scanner, now with VoiceNotes and Bluetooth connectivity to send scans with voice recordings to Bluetooth phones and tablets or computers with the included USB cable.  Pen-sized, fast and easy to use, ScanStik SK600V is the most compact full page color scanner available on the market.  Perfect for scanning on the go, at work, home, or school, ScanStik SK600V is unlike other pen-sized scanners that only scan a line at a time, scanning the whole page at once just like a flat-bed scanner, but without the bulk.  For even more convenience, ScanStik SK600V also features a MicroSD memory slot that holds 1000s of image scans with up to 600 dpi resolution in color or black and white. 

A New Concept in Efficiency – Scan on the Go with Voice Notes for Reminders or Personal Messages 

PlanOn’s newest innovation takes efficiency to a whole new level.  In addition to including a rechargeable battery, MicroSD card slot, USB connector, and 600 dpi scanning system, the ScanStik SK600V now includes a microphone, speaker, and Bluetooth connectivity -- all in a small elegant package.  Use the Bluetooth connection to transfer scans in seconds to most smartphones and tablets or to a computer via USB and organize your scans with the included Abbyy Finereader SE professional level OCR software and PaperPort SE software image editing and organizing tool.  The new VoiceNotes feature allows you to record a reminder, comment, or instruction to send with the scan to a computer, phone or tablet -- an efficient and more personal way to send your message, especially when texting alone can be confusing.  

ScanStik SK600V helps you become more organized and efficient.  Key uses include: 

·        At Work:  quickly scan a signed document at your desk and save or email it, rather than searching for a scanner somewhere in your office.

·        For Mobile Professionals:  scan in your hotel room, rather than looking for the business center.

·        For Salespeople:  scan needed IDs and other documents right at a client’s home, saving time and providing important backup for real estate, banking and insurance sales professionals.

·        On Vacation:  capture 600dpi clear images on vacation, for menus, wine bottle label, receipts, or paperwork.

·        Home Office:  make digital copies of receipts, tax records, and filings.  Scan checks as you are ready to mail them, since most banks no longer return paper checks with statements.

·        VoiceNotes:  add VoiceNotes to highlights important points, for your own reference, or for reminders.

·        For students:  scan pages from a book without borrowing it and collaborate with students on projects.  Scan notes from missed days.

Review: ArtRage makes creating natural-looking art easy and fun
At a Glance
ArtRage 4.0

$50.00
ArtRage is easy and pleasant to start working with, especially if you have a pen tablet or a touchscreen computer.

Erez Zukerman
 
Painting is fun. Unfortunately, software for painting often gets a bad rep: I don't mean image-editing (Photoshop), but actual painting (Microsoft Paint). But Microsoft Paint is at the very bottom of the painting totem pole, often associated squiggly-looking Rage Guy memes. More modern tools like SpeedyPainter and Corel Painter Lite show that creating beautiful, natural-looking art using a computer is possible, and doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg. ArtRage joins these accessible tools with its own touch-friendly interface and an attractive $50 price tag.

The Symmetry feature makes for interesting paintings that sometimes look like koalas.
 
Much like Corel Painter Lite and its older sibling, Corel Painter, ArtRage simulates natural media. Paper and brush both have textures; load your brush with paint and draw it across the canvas with one long stroke, and it will gradually fade out. Paint over an area again, and colors will blend, leaving visible brush strokes.

ArtRage's interface is simple to pick up, with most functions in easy reach. I tested it with a simple stylus and one of the new breed of touchscreen-enabled laptops, the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13. Radial toolbars at the bottom two corners of the screen let me quickly switch tools and adjust colors without fiddling with menus. Other tools show up as floating panels, which are easy to drag and resize using large, comfortable grippers, and automatically wink out of existence as you paint near them. You can pan, zoom, and rotate the canvas with two fingers, making for a very natural workflow. While most of the interface is touch-friendly, it's not all quite there yet: Adjusting layer opacity still requires the keyboard, for example.

Stencils and rulers make it easy to constrain your work.
 
Once you get used to the friendly interface and simple tools, it's time to start playing around with some of the more creative features. Symmetry makes it possible to create interesting, kaleidoscope-like drawings, while stencils and rulers let you constrict your work in interesting ways, for a more accurate, geometric look. Stencils and rulers are made to look like physical objects lying on top of your canvas: You can drag them around and resize them, but they look like pieces of plastic or metal. ArtRage supports layers, too, and you can blur individual layers, adjust their blend modes, change their textures, and more.

When zooming in for detail work, it often helps to keep the big picture in mind. When watching videos made with SpeedyPainter, I noticed just how often artists would zoom in and out, again and again, to get a sense of how the work is progressing. ArtRage helps avoid this by offering a feature called Views. A View works like a little Polaroid snap of your painting that lies on top of your canvas while you zoom in to work on the details. Just like a physical Polaroid, you can drag the View around and rotate it. Unlike its real-world counterpart, you can also change a View's size, and zoom in or out on its contents. The same concept is used to show pieces of scrap canvas or other files for reference.

Polaroid-like Views of your work keep the big picture in view while zooming in for detail work.
ArtRage feels deep and capable, but remains accessible and easy to start with. The attractive price tag doesn't hurt, either. Like most other painting software, it is usable with a mouse, but shines when used with a pen tablet or a touchscreen. If you're looking for an affordable and simple way to get into digital painting, try ArtRage out.

Sree Tips: Father’s Day Apps And Gift Ideas
June 13, 2013 8:17 AM
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) - Father’s Day is this Sunday and it’s a good excuse to get a gift for the dads, granddads, uncles, and just-plain good guys in our lives.

Sree Sreenivasan, tech expert from our partner network CNET and Columbia University’s chief digital officer, has some ideas you’ll want to know about.

If the man you are buying a gift for already has a smartphone or a tablet, these are some cool, useful, and fun ideas for paid apps you can get him.

You can use the “Gift this app” function in the iTunes App Store or buy a Google Play gift card at a retailer via play.google.com/about/giftcards/

The final item is not an app, but an actual gift, though it is a digital one.

It’s the SensoGlove ($89).

It’s a gift your dad can touch and feel. The SensoGlove is a way to improve his swing by analyzing and giving real-time feedback about his grip. It has a small device on the back of a normal looking glove (you can move it to a new glove if your old one wears out).


 

SensoGlove in Newsday “SensoGlove, the world’s first digital golf glove, analyzes your swing via sensors and gives instant feedback.”

Golf Gear
If there's ever a time to get the most of a mashie - or putter, driving iron or niblick - it's June, when the weather urges golfers out to L.I. courses, from Bethpage Black to Shinnecock Hills. Which makes golf gear the perfect gift for many a dad (and grad - male or female).

Sensoglove, the world's first digital golf glove, analyzes your swing via sensors and gives instant feedback on grip pressure on an LED digital display; originally $89, now $71.20 (use coupon code "FathersDay13") at sensoglove.com.

PRODUCT REVIEWS [For DADs and KIDS] 

As Father’s Day approaches, I receive a Press Release from my favorite PR agent Karen Thomas whose firm bearing her name is the top PR firm for Consumer Technology products. This is immediately followed by the delivery of a couple of sample products for review.

I find the two technology products interesting for they cater to different generations – one for Dads and the other for Kids or Grandkids. Both qualify as great gifts on Father’s Day. 

SensoGlove 

This is a golf glove. Dads who love to play golf and want to improve their game would definitely like to receive this as a gift. 

This is the only golf glove in the market with a built-in digital computer. It is also the only golf glove that monitors a golfing Dad’s grip pressure throughout his swing. 

Golfers know that a lighter grip improves distance and accuracy with every club, including chipping and putting. Continuous grip monitoring through the built-computer would assist in training or practicing a lighter grip. 

The presence of digital computer is not annoying. It is light-weight and can be removed and replaced without removing the glove – functional only when needed. 

SensoGlove “looks, feels, and works just like a regular golf glove,” so a golfing Dad can use it for practice or play. In fact, SensoGlove can be and has been used for backyard practice, on the driving range, or during an actual round. 

Practicing with this glove teaches you the correct grip pressure for a smooth, consistent swing that delivers greater distance, enhanced precision, and lower scores. 

Golfing Dads should have it as a Father’s Day gift as they watch and dream of playing at the coming U.S. Open! 

KIDZ GEAR VOLUME LIMITED HEADPHONES for KIDS 

WHAT’S YOUR COLOR? 

The other product sent to me for review is wired headphone distributed by Kidz Gear with a limited volume for use by kids. 

In a Day Care Center managed by a friend in my neighborhood, I usually lend an iPod with several playlists pre-recorded. Very popular among the kids which include babies, is a song “Heavy” by Jason Myles Goss. I purposely limit the volume for safety as I attach a wireless speaker so everybody can listen and dance. It was such a hit among them that every time I visit, those who can speak shout “Heavy” the moment they see me. 

When I received the sample product for review, I visited the Day Care Center to test the product among the kids with the right age. I connected the Volume Limited Headphone to the iPod, and placed it on one kid’s ear. The child started listening, smiling and dancing to the tune of “Heavy”. 

I understand that the Kidz Gear Volume Limited Headphone is the first adult-featured stereo headphone made specifically for kids. I tested it myself and it really delivers great, rich sound quality for music and even audio books be they MP3s or contents coming from smartphones, tablets, radio, Game Players and other mobile devices. They are touted as the safest headphones for kids’ use in the market. If  you are looking for something to keep your kids still while in the car, at home, or on the plane, this is definitely a good one to try.  

It is designed to fit the little heads of children. It is also adjustable for those whose heads are a little bigger. They come in different beautiful colors. 

The box sent to me for review includes a headphone carry bag and splitter cable. The latter allows the other kids to listen to the same music that the headphone user is listening to. 

It is reasonably priced. I recommend it for Parents to buy either for their children or as gifts to others.

Unique gifts for the Mannish Boys in your life

By Victor Paul Alvarez | Digital Crave – Tue, May 21, 2013 2:30 PM EDT

I was 16 when I first heard Muddy Waters sing “Mannish Boy.” It was the live version on the album Muddy “Mississippi” Waters Live, featuring Johnny Winter, Pinetop Perkins and Willie “Big Eyes” Smith. Since then I’ve told anyone who will listen that I want that song played at my funeral. When I was a teenager I thought it was just a tough song. Still is. Little did I know the simplest interpretation of the title “Mannish Boy” would forever define me. I am best described as a boy trapped in a grown man’s body

As such, I am not immune to gadgets and toys no matter how old I get. I know I’m not alone. Consider the following unique gadgets when shopping for the Mannish Boy in your life. Father’s Day isn’t until June 16, but the earlier you plan for the Old Man the more likely you’ll be to buy him something more thoughtful than a fifth of cheap scotch. Dad doesn’t want that – well, he might – but he probably wants one of these.

SensoGlove

SensoGlove is the first and only golf glove with built-in sensors that constantly read the pressure of your grip. Its makers claim, “Practicing with SensoGlove will teach you the correct grip pressure for a smooth, consistent swing that delivers greater distance, enhanced precision and lower scores!” Golf pros say keeping a light grip is an important part of the game. This is easier said than done, as it is difficult to learn exactly what they mean when they say “light grip pressure.”

“One of the worst mistakes I see amateurs make in chipping is gripping the club too tightly or changing their grip pressure from the practice stroke to the real thing. Most often that activates the wrists and leads to a quick, stabbing motion,” Tiger Woods told Golf Digest in 2006. The SensoGlove’s built-in computer actively monitors your grip with sensors placed throughout the glove. You get instant feedback at all the points of your swing, with audio feedback that warns you the moment your grip becomes too tight.

The glove’s computer is lightweight and, blessedly, sweat-proof. Four tiny sensors are sewn into the glove, which works and feels like any other golf glove. You dial in your pressure on a scale of 1 to 18 and swing away. The computer reads and displays your pressure, warning you if you exceed your target level and showing you which finger is gripping too tight.

PLANON ANNOUNCES SCANSTIK–

WORLD’S SMALLEST FULL PAGE COLOR SCANNER

“Office in a Pocket” for Business, Home and School

 

Pen-sized Scanner Scans a Full Page in 4 Seconds–

Stores Thousands of Images up to 600 dpi and

Features PlanON CLC Image Technology for Superior Image Quality 

MISSISSAUGA, ON, April 9, 2013 – PlanOn System Solutions Inc. www.planon.com, the world leader in scanning and printing solutions for the mobile professional, announced today ScanStik, the world’s smallest full page color scanner.  Pen-sized, fast and easy to use, ScanStik is the most compact, sleek designed full page color scanner available on the market.  It’s perfect for scanning on the go, at work, home, or school – an “Office in a Pocket.”  Unlike other pen-sized scanners that only scan a line at a time, the light-weight ScanStik scans the whole page at once just like a flat-bed scanner, but without the bulk.  For even more convenience, ScanStik also features a MicroSD memory slot that holds thousands of image scans from 150 to 600 dpi resolution in color or black and white. 

‘Click and Scan’ Function Scans a Full Page in Just 4 Seconds 

Fast and easy to use, ScanStik features a ‘click and scan’ fast function, that scans a full page in just 4 seconds.  After scanning, just plug ScanStik into the USB port of your computer to transfer, recognize, organize, and edit scans with the included ABBYY FineReader SE and PaperPort OCR Software and PlanOn’s CLC (Crystal Line Contact) image technology with superior image quality for better presentations and OCR accuracy.  ScanStik also includes a rechargeable Lithium Polymer battery, which charges ScanStik via the computer’s USB slot, so you never have to worry about needing new batteries or buying a charger – and it’s also better for the environment.  

Makes it Easy to Work from Home or on the Road 

“With increasing flex-time becoming more prevalent with more employees working from home or on the road, people need to bring their office with them wherever they go.  ScanStik allows you to bring your office with you, letting you scan contracts, receipts, invoices, business cards – everything you would do at work – while on the road,” said Doug Verkaik, CEO of Planon.  

ScanStik Uses: 

For the Mobile Professional:  Smaller then full page scanners, ScanStik fits in your bag or purse and saves time by having your office tools with you at all times. Agents, (Real Estate, Investment, and Insurance) or salespeople gather important documents on the road instead of taking them back to the office to copy and return.  Just scan the info:  driver’s license, property tax bill, survey, life insurance, application, etc. on the spot.  Also ScanStik eliminates the hassle and cost of using hotel business services by scanning and emailing right in your hotel room. 

At the Office:  Use ScanStik right at your desk. Avoid the inconvenience of looking for a scanner in the office and then retrieving the file on the network.  Makes it fast and easy to receive documents from co-workers or customers, then lets you print, sign, scan and email back.   

At Home:  Use ScanStik for capturing expense receipts for taxes, pictures, and important personal documents (insurance, wills, report cards, warranty info, etc.).  Organize scans with the included software.  

For the Student:  Scan the pages you need from a book or article in the library or classroom without having to borrow it for days.  Collaborate with other students on projects and scan and share info quickly – scan lecture notes from missed days. 

ScanStik Features:

·        Resolution:150,  300, & 600 DPI

·        Scan: 24-bit Color JPG, B&W

·        Dimensions: 8.9" x 0.5" x 0.5" (227mm x 13mm x13mm)

More power is in the cards

If you'd like a way to charge your phone with something far smaller than the Hoover Dam – or even those power cords that somehow always get tangled up – think small. Very small. That's the idea behind Tarot, a portable power bank from Powerocks. As the name suggests, the card-sized Tarot can fit in a wallet, pocket or purse. A bit thicker than a credit card, the power bank contains a rechargeable 1500mAh lithium ion battery that can provide emergency power to phones, tablets and other portable gadgets. Available in black, silver or pink, the Tarot ships with a Micro USB to USB cable and a water-resistant pouch. It costs about $35.

The Tarot Sees a Full Battery in Your Future
By ROY FURCHGOTT
NY Times Features Powerocks Tarot Portable Power Bank “The Tarot Sees a Full Battery in Your Future” by Roy Furchgott!
The Powerocks Tarot auxiliary battery is the size of a stack of credit cards.
 
Backup batteries usually trumpet their capacity, but capacity results in size: they are sometimes as large as a paperback book. The Powerocks Tarot, though, trumpets its size, because it’s just about the same as a stack of credit cards.

Its capacity isn’t bad either. At 1500 milliamp hours (mAh), it should be enough to top up an empty iPhone.

In a test, the Tarot filled a completely drained iPhone to 65 percent capacity in nearly an hour. It filled the high-capacity battery of a discharged Motorola RAZR Maxx HD to 39 percent. That’s impressive, considering that Motorola’s big auxiliary battery, the 4000 mAh P4000, filled the same phone to 89 percent.

Although Powerocks claims the Tarot is small enough to fit in a wallet, it had better be a big wallet. While the perimeter measurements are about the same as a credit card, it’s about as thick as a stack of 10 credit cards.

There is nothing fancy about the case, although it is available in black, silver or pink. It has four L.E.D. lights that show battery level. A red L.E.D. turns blue to let you know when the Tarot is done charging.

The battery comes with a cable that has a standard size USB on one end and a Micro USB connector on the other. It doesn’t come with a charger, but you can plug it into a computer or, in all probability, the one that comes with your phone.

The Tarot is available from Powerocks online for $35.

New devices from PowerRocks, Accell and AT&T Keep You Charged on the Road
5/7/13 3:20 PM
In my lifetime we’ve had Pet Rocks, Pop Rocks and Fruity Pebbles, but never Power Rocks - - - until now.

The PowerRocks Stone 3 7800 mAh ($99.99) is a dual USB battery - - - they call it a “Powerbank” - - - that can charge two mobile devices simultaneously including tablets, cameras and smartphones.

The device has two USB output ports and micro and mini USB input ports that are used to charge it, so you can use either the micro USB cable that comes with the 7800 or another that may be lying around the house or office.

The charging cable that comes with the 7800 needs either a USB plug adapter, which is pretty common with today’s collection of mobile devices, or can be plugged directly into an outlet or computer that has a USB port. The PowerRocks logo flashes when it is charging and, obviously, stops flashing went it is fully charged.

We were able to charge an Apple 4/S and an Amazon Kindle Fire four or five times using the PowerRock device without having to replenish the battery, which is pretty good by today’s standards. The company’s website boasts that it can charge devices five or six times, so it pretty much performed as the company claims.

One of the best things about the 7800 is its size. Weighing in at a mere eight ounces and being pretty small (three inches squared) in stature, it takes up very little real estate in a briefcase, computer bag or purse.

The Stone 3 is also built to last a bit longer than most of the other batteries on the market today. A majority are rated at 6000 mAh indicating it will take about 6000 milliamp hours for the battery to die. The Stone 3 is rated at 7800 mAh. You do the math.

Power up Mom’s day
Give her the gift of tech with these new gadgets

GoSmart in Philadelphia Daily News by Jonathan Takiff!
Posted: May 03, 2013
MOTHER'S DAY is nigh. Whatcha getting yours?

The gift of a gizmo lasts much longer than flowers or candy and reminds her of your love for months and years to come. Gadgets such as these:

FUZZY WUZZIES: Does mom like to pad around the house in fuzzy slippers? Now she can bring the same comfort and good vibes to her computer station with the GoSmart RestPad, a generously oversize, nonslip mouse pad with an equally accommodating wrist rest made of soft, breathable and washable sheepskin. The pad feels cozy and helps prevent repetitive wrist injury. A GoSmart Pad normally costs $34.95 (plus $10 shipping) at Amazon, but entering code GSMD2013 at checkout saves 25 percent on purchases through May 13.

Short on ideas for Mother’s day? Gizmo Guy recommends the GoSmart rest mouse pad (top).

Macworld UK’s 5 Star Rating of ArtRage 4 by Duncan Evans:  “Up until recently, the digital painting world was split between those working miracles with Photoshop’s limited tools and those enduring headaches with Painter’s overbearing complexity. When ArtRage arrived it was like a breath of fresh air, and here with version 4 it has stepped up to rival either, more expansive package, for your digital painting needs.”

Manufacturer: Ambient Design
Manufacturer: Ambient Design
Pros: Natural media watercolours and oils react with each other and the canvas, the uncluttered interface is a revelation compared to rivals, lots of pen and tablet support, adjustable and configurable user options, incredibly cheap.
Cons: Lacks variety of natural media tools, not much in the way of filters, weak on the lighting front, tools aren’t as sophisticated as Painter, can be slow at times.
Min specs: Requirements: Mac OS X 10.6 or later, Intel CPU, 512MB RAM.
Price: $49.90 (£35)
Star rating: We rate this 5 out of 5.Star rating

Up until recently, the digital painting world was split between those working miracles with Photoshop’s limited tools and those enduring headaches with Painter’s overbearing complexity. When ArtRage arrived it was like a breath of fresh air, and here with version 4 it has stepped up to rival either, more expansive package, for your digital painting needs. ArtRage is like Painter in that it is a proper, natural-media painting package. That means that paint on the paper has depth and mixes with the underlying colour or watercolour spreads and dries on the paper. In terms of what’s new in this version, it’s all about supporting and making best use of tablets and pens, though most features are supported by mouse control as well. There’s bristle stiffness and head aspect control when using the oil paints, colour and brush sizes can be stored as presets, your own colour swatches can be saved and there are coloured canvas patterns. For direct Wacom stylus support there’s new support for the Stylus Tilt, Airbrush Wheel and Art Pen Barrel Rotation, stylus properties can be defined and tools can be assigned to specific styluses.

There are lots of other enhancements, the most notable of which are the paint symmetry options that will help speed up painting by duplicating brush strokes. These include mirroring, adjustable axes and rotation and symmetrical strokes. Although ArtRage is fairly robust there’s now automatic backing up of files when saving so there’s always another copy on hand.
Macworld UK’s 5 Star Rating of ArtRage 4 by Duncan Evans:  “Up until recently, the digital painting world was split between those working miracles with Photoshop’s limited tools and those enduring headaches with Painter’s overbearing complexity. When ArtRage arrived it was like a breath of fresh air, and here with version 4 it has stepped up to rival either, more expansive package, for your digital painting needs.”
Using a trace layer means that the tool used automatically picks up the colour from underneath, making it easy to create a new image.

If you were hoping for lots of new media brushes then look away, the focus here is on making everything work better. Previously you could pin reference images to the canvas, well now you can pin scraps for colour mixing or making test paintings. There are also independent viewports that can be zoomed and panned and references are easy to drag directly off the canvas when no longer needed. A number of the enhancements are workflow related, so that the workspace can be collapsed to provide a tight, focussed area and there’s a single panel for gathering custom resources. There are some new tools though, with the addition of a cloner, gradient and pattern fills and a noise filter.

If you’ve never used ArtRage before, then the minimalist interface will come as something of a surprise, but it’s all about making the tools easy to use and concentrating on the painting. This release continues that progress making it a compelling, low-cost alternative to the natural media overload of Painter. The oils and watercolours aren’t as sophisticated as Painter, but they are definitely better than Photoshop’s tools, and they do act and react in a natural media fashion. This makes creating those styles of artwork much easier.

When ArtRage arrived it was like a breath of fresh air, and here with version 4 it has stepped up to rival either, more expansive package, for your digital painting needs.”
There’s support for multiple layers and easily using reference images and scraps of images for test purposes.

Macworld Buying Advice
Easy to recommend ArtRage, the latest improvements make it more flexible and powerful. While it isn’t on a par with the tools available in Painter, it has a massively shorter learning time and can be producing excellent results in very little time. With a bargain price as well, ArtRage 4 can sit happily alongside your more expensive software, ready to be picked up and used quickly.

5 Gadgets to Enhance Your Golf Game
Golf swing suck? Game not on par? These apps, handhelds, and other small devices will boost your performance on the course. Hello, victory.

5 Gadgets to Enhance Your Golf Game

SensoGlove

Nailing your swing is about finding proper pressure—if you hold the club with a death grip, chances are you’ll gaff it. But thanks to sewn-in sensors, the SensoGlove pulls feedback from previous swings to calculate what your grip should be throughout your stroke. A tiny, sweat-proof computer measures your swing’s pressure from 1 to 18 so you can adjust for your next shot. Plus, it shows you (down to the finger) where in your grip you need to relax your hold.

PRODUCT REVIEWS: POWEROCKS

TECH IT FROM MY BARBER by Benjamin Maynigo

If you have any, most, or all of the devices enumerated in the picture (Photo 1), you usually have “low bat” problems. You have issues on recharging your device/s especially when on the plane or in some places where there are no charging stations.
Asian Journal on Powerocks: "But recently, Karen Thomas of the Thomas Public Relations - The #1 Award-Winning Public Relations Agency for Consumer Electronics, on behalf of Powerocks sent me an email stating that sample products were now available and was checking my interest in reviewing them... I love it! I highly recommend our readers to buy it!" - Ben Maynigo, Asian Journal.
(PHOTO 1)

Having the said devices, I was always interested in portable chargers that kept my gadgets usable and my stored documents, photo, and video libraries accessible and available at all times. Power was always a key factor.

During the International CES 2013 in Las Vegas, Powerocks - known as creators of fashionable power banks, launched some mobile power products that sought to resolve the issues raised above.

Samples of the products were not available for review at the time so I could not test and write about them. But recently, Karen Thomas of the Thomas Public Relations - The #1 Award-Winning Public Relations Agency for Consumer Electronics, on behalf of Powerocks sent me an email stating that sample products were now available and was checking my interest in reviewing them.

Having shown some interest on my part, Karen immediately arranged for the delivery of the products. I received a couple of the products last week and have been using and testing them since then.

STONE 3

The Stone 3 has been quite useful to me – for my IPAD and my iPhones. It is lightweight, portable and small enough that I can hold it in the palm of my hand. It could easily fit in a briefcase, backpack and a purse. It is very powerful and a suitable companion when going on vacation, to work, to the gym, and anywhere you go on a daily basis.

Containing a rechargeable 7800Ah lithium ion battery, it is strong enough to charge my iPhone and iPAD simultaneously. It has a dual USB output allowing the charging of two devices at the same time. It is compatible with Apple products and other universal Micro USB charging ports. It also uses clean and reusable power.

I love it! I highly recommend our readers to buy it!

MAGIC CUBE

Magic is also small (in fact, smaller) but quite powerful. I used it for charging my Kindle and my Android. It is rechargeable, very portable and of course, lightweight. It has a large capacity (6000mAh) and has a built-in USB and Micro USB cables.

Like the Stone 3, it is also compatible with Apple products, cell phones, smartphones, and other digital devices such as Bluetooth headsets, cameras, GPS, tablets, and more depending on device charge requirements.

It is compact and with its size you can put it in your pocket, your purse, briefcase, backpack and hold it in your hand. It is very convenient to have it with you when traveling. It charges your tablet, eBook Reader, or other mobile devices safely and quickly. This is one battery that would not let you miss a call, or lose power in a meeting.

If you only bring one mobile device when going away, this is the companion rechargeable battery for you. The “Family Choice Awards” has recognized Magic Cube as one of the “Best in Children’s and Parenting Products”.

Buying it is recommended!

GoSmart Stylus
 
GoSmart Tip & Magnet Detail
 
The GoSmart stylus is an unusual but well-designed stylus with a target tip that is Teflon coated to protect your tablet screen but the unique open design tip is where the GoSmart sets itself apart.

Ease of Use, Performance: 5/5
Look & Feel: 4/5
Features: 5/5
How much I enjoy: 5/5

Recommendation: 5/5 Stars

The GoSmart stylus for both the 200 and 300 series are uniquely designed stylus that include an aluminum body with or without magnets to attach to your tablet or other metal surfaces but the tip is what really makes these different. The GoSmart stylus have a unique metal tip that is Teflon coated to protect your screen and is a circle and crosshair design for easily seeing where the exact tip rests on your tablet.

The crosshair design means you see exactly where the tip of your stylus is at any moment instead of those big fat foam rubber tips that are not as precise for typing and other uses such as drawing and image editing. The tip is on a spring that inserts into the front of the stylus body for an easily replaceable tip that is also available from GoSmart for about $7 while the 200 and 300 series stylus cost about $24 without magnets and $25 with magnets.

The 200 series GoSmart stylus have a plain round body with a plastic colored cap while the 300 series is a tapered body with a rocket fin rubber cap that is also available in a small variety of colors. The caps come in blue, white, red and black while the aluminum body of both series have a nicely textured body for a smooth but comfortable grip on your stylus while using it.

The embedded magnets on the two stylus I received for review are handy for connecting to the side magnets on the iPad tablets to hold the pen or to stick them to steel surfaces like the side of a computer case. I can keep my stylus in handy reach at my desk on the side of the case while the 200 series has the clip on the cap for easy use to clip the stylus on a cover or a pocket.

The 300 series is more of a cute design but if you're not worried about needing a clip the rocket design is a fun way to approach a stylus but both stylus work equally as well which is fantastic. The tip with its open design allows you to see more of your screen and ensure you are precise when using the stylus which works extremely well for all uses but especially for image editing and drawing.

The Teflon coating ensures you don't scratch your screen but the GoSmart website does advise using a screen protector to prevent fine scratches which is a good idea to protect your investment. I had no problems using a variety of drawing, sketch and image editing programs like the new Adobe Photoshop Touch tablet image editing program as the stylus worked smoothly but precision is where the main difference can be seen.

Seeing exactly where the tip of the stylus is touching the screen makes image editing and drawing a real ease on your tablet using the precise GoSmart stylus tip design which is easily half the size as traditional foam rubber tips. I highly recommend the GoSmart stylus for precise touch screen use while the 200 or 300 series style is more a personal choice for a professional or a more fun style.

PC Advisor Awards foxL 4 ½ Star Rating - “Soundmatters foxL v2 review: a magical portable speaker that beggars rational belief” by Andrew Harrison. 4 ½ Stars
By Andrew Harrison | PC Advisor | 05 April 13
 
The Soundmatters foxL v2 is a very compact speaker for laptops, smartphones and iPads whose sound quality belies its tiny 14cm long size.
 
We’ve heard many small PC and gadget speakers before, but nothing that has come close to the sonic realism of the Soundmatters foxL v2.

Laptops don’t have to be the only source of sound for small speakers. And when a speaker is this compact, this pocketable, it demands to be picked up and hooked up to phones and iPads too. Just don’t confuse the Soundmatters foxL v2 with the usual cheap tat billed as portable wireless speakers – this solid-feeling black bar just 140mm long reproduces music beautifully.
PC Advisor Awards foxL 4 ½ Star Rating - “Soundmatters foxL v2 review: a magical portable speaker that beggars rational belief” by Andrew Harrison.
Most little plastic PC speakers are light in weight and even lighter in sound quality, yet the Soundmatters foxL exudes class, in both its feel and its sound reproduction.

At 269g, it’s strangely heavy, a glass-filled-plastic case stuffed with a 4W stereo Class D amplifier, two innovative woofer-cum-tweeter drivers that Soundmatters calls a twoofer. And a lithium battery that doubles as a bass speaker, trademarked the BassBattery.

A little grille-shaped kickstand hinges off the back to let the Soundmatters foxL sit at a good angle on the table. Behind this stand you can make out the rectangular battery pack, suspended on a rubber diaphragm and acting as a passive bass radiator.

The actual sound drivers are the unusual twoofers, facing forward and standing proud of the main chassis as two spherical domes. These patented units use 1in voice coils, which seems exceptionally large given the moving domes are no larger. Across the entire front face is a perforated panel which prevents you from touching and damaging these drivers.

As well as a sound speaker to augment laptops and other mobile devices, the Soundmatters foxL v2 can be used as a hands-free speaker when paired with a phone. We found it just usable as such, with the usual distant-sound issue that made conversation a little harder than usual.

Soundmatters foxL v2: Performance
You can connect the Soundmatters foxL v2 through a regular 3.5mm minijack socket, or via Bluetooth A2DP. The latest version is said to support aptX, a near-lossless audio codec, although our older sample was only able to use the default SBC codec, which compresses the bitstream too heavily for our taste.

But over a wired link the foxL v2 gave an uncannily fulsome and rich sound. Held in the hand, you can feel the device’s palpable vibration as its battery gets excited.

Set down and playing music, upright bass had real texture, heard in the prelude and riff of Miles Davis’ ‘So What?’ before moving on to the ambling walking pattern. Trumpet and modal piano sat neatly over, projecting cleanly into the room.

Vocals were also flattered by the speaker, maintaining great diction and highly intelligible without standing forward enough to imbalance the mix.

With speaker drivers only around 100mm apart we can’t expect super stereo but the Soundmatters foxL nevertheless has a way of conjuring up a large soundfield.

Feed it some ping-pong stereo material like ‘Any Colour You Like’ from The Dark Side of the Moon and you can just pick out the left/right edges; but it still satisfies with that punchy yet expansive soundscape.

As you move your listening position around a Soundmatters foxL sat on a table, tonal quality remains strangely constant, rather than fall apart with the huge tonal shift that many speakers – large or small – suffer.

The spooky thing is just how much the Soundmatters foxL v2 can be appreciated... from outside the room. There's something quite wholesome and phase-coherent about its sound that makes it just as realistic when heard from afar.

Maximum volume level can be exceptional given the size. Powered from the internal battery, Soundmatters specifies the amp at 2W per channel. With the help of the Mini-USB charger connected, it stretches to 4W, and you can actually hear the extra few dB of sound pressure available.

Played flat out, we never heard clipping or driver bottoming, suggesting some crafty limiting to prevent damage to your sensibilities or the device itself.

The Soundmatters foxL v2 is distributed in the UK by Musical Fidelity.

BIKE RADIO
As much as you might like to rock out while you ride, wearing headphones on a bicycle is just too risky. Soundmatters handlebar-mounted speakers make your music collection good to go. Just link these rechargeable wireless speakers to a portable music player (such as iPod touch, iPhone, or Android phone), then enjoy loud-and-clear playback of your favorite road-tripping tunes. The speakers are good for five hours on a single charge, so chances are you'll run out of energy before they do.
