A Light Bulb That’s Also a Speaker, I Have Heard It All Now!

IMG_20160123_090328LED + Wireless Speaker the Sengled Pulse

Ok so when I was sent these wireless speaker bulbs to test I must say I was very excited, the thought of solving a the old problem of keeping your room clutter free but also enjoy listening to music was right in front of me.

What’s in the box

 

IMG_20160123_090341

So when you open the box the first thing that strikes you is how clean and minimalist everything looks, Sengled have gone to a lot of effort to make the packaging and the product match the expectations of the buyer, who lets be honest is going to be someone who lives this clean smart lifestyle.

What to do first.

To be honest this is very intuitive as when you take the bulb speakers out of the box they are basically a bulb with a screw thread so you just do what you would do with a bulb and screw it into the bulb holder in your lamp.

IMG_20160206_122440

 

IMG_20160206_122514

Ok so when you look at the bulb in the holder it does look a little strange especially being red perhaps the white casing would look better, however turn on the lamp and once the light is on you can’t tell it isn’t just a conventional bulb in the lamp.

IMG_20160206_122531

IMG_20160206_122541

 

 

So we have light what about the sound?

So this is where the Sengled Pulse comes into its own so let’s recap you have a LED bulb which uses a lot less power to a conventional bulb only 8Watts and an LED bulb will last for 25000 hours that’s a lot of time for a light to be on so you never have to worry about replacing this bulb.

So these are wireless bluetooth speakers so yes you have guessed it you need a smartphone or tablet to make these speakers work.  So you need to download the app on either android though Google Play or Itunes on your Apple device.

So once you have put the other speaker into your second lamp (and you can have up to 8 in total) on the other side of your room and turned this on you have now created the ability to listen to stereo sound.

So open the App, now the app will sync with the speaker and once are connected you are good to go and begin steaming your music through your new bulb speakers.

I was using Spotify and I must say it was amazing!! it was so weird hearing music playing and not seeing any speakers anywhere.

The app lets you alter the volume, graphic equalizer setting and even dim the bulbs (both control at the same time) for that more moody lighting to match your choice of music.

Ok the sound is excellent but of course its never going to match a full hifi system but I don’t believe this is what it was intended for.  This is a smart way to light your room and listen to music all controlled through your phone or tablet without the unsightly stereo, speakers and cables etc.

15 Amazing Facts about NFC Payments

NFC – or Near Field Communication payments are literally the wave of the future. While there is an NFC payment thrust in the mobile phone industry, there is slow, but steady acceptance of NFC payments in the retail arena too.

Here are some things you may not know about NFC payments – but it’s still early days and it’s never too late to learn!

  1. NFC technology allows two NFC-enabled devices to exchange data at the distance of a mere few inches.
  2. NFC technology is completely wireless.
  3. NFC Technology can be contactless – NFC payments can be made through just the mobile phone as well as by tapping an NFC-enabled terminal.
  4. NFC technology definitely trumps the Bluetooth, as it consumes less power, and no pairing code is required either.
  5. Since NFC technology is less power-consuming, it means your phone has a longer battery life. This is important, especially if you are to adapt to the NFC payment lifestyle!
  6. NFC payments render the need to lug around a wallet full of cash, change and cards completely unnecessary.
  7. To become part of the NFC technology family, and conduct NFC payments with a tap, sometimes all you will need is a mobile phone with a SIM, as the SIM acts as your identity tool with the NFC network.
  8. More and more smartphone systems have incorporated NFC technology, so you may already be ahead of the game!
  9. While many people prefer traditional means of payments, with NFC payments, you are safeguarded from theft, or financial fraud.
  10. NFC payments are even more secure, because once you tap the Point of Sale terminal for a payment, you will be asked to confirm your NFC payment via a password, fingerprint scan, or other security measure.
  11. You can pay for a variety of services with NFC technology – in retail stores and online, and for micro transactions such as parking fee or bus fare too!
  12. NFC technology is fun – it allows your phone to ‘read’ NFC tags which may offer discount vouchers, helpful information, or the ability to pay instantly for something.
  13. Like most credit card systems, your NFC technology savvy mobile phone will allow you to make payments all over the world!
  14. NFC payments are travel-friendly: because all NFC payments are safe and secure with the advantage of PIN approval.
  15. NFC technology uses your phone to connect your bank account or mobile account to other people and businesses for payments – but at no point does any of your personal information go to the payee!

No wonder then NFC technology is poised to take over the world of retail and ecommerce.

We have all been waiting in a queue or on a train or bus and looked up to see virtually everyone either on social media or playing a game and not only have the new range of smartphones made this easier but developers have also created games which are mind blowing, I mean we are talking console quality a far cry from the first games of snake and roll the dice.

Most Android games offer a free version which is great although you do find there are in app payments which gives you additional access within the game, like the ability to add extra lives and levels or special features games like Candy Crush had become extremely successful with this business model.

Of course you have the more adult games which range from driving games like Crazy Taxi City Rush to Modern Combat 5: Blackout which as the name suggests is a combat game. These games are really more in depth and this is where you feel the consul games coming to your smartphone.

modern combat 5 blackout

Smartphone games for me are split into two camps the games that are great for the commute you know the ones you can just dip in and out of like the angry birds/bad piggies and the adventure or walk through which you can lose yourself for hours like Sky Force 2014 /Plants Vs Zombies.

So whatever you are doing and how much time you have you always have your smartphone and a game or app which is going to be right for that moment, the only problem you have is which game or app to choose, not a bad decision to have.

5 Mobile Android Games Worth Checking Out

5 Mobile Android Games Worth Checking Out

smart phone online gaming

Android owners with even a passing interest in video games have a lot to be excited about. Smart devices are more capable than ever when it comes to handling the necessary technical aspects of gaming, which has led to some seriously impressive results.

However, beyond gorgeous graphics, what it all really boils down to is whether or not the game is actually any fun to play. Not only that, but is it easy to boot up and enjoy whenever you get the urge/some free time? Or is it something that bogs down your device and only incites frustration? Well, with the help of this post, you’ll be sure to avoid any aggravation and simply enjoy your experience, because we can all use more time for relaxation. Here are five mobile games worth checking out on your Android device—and they’re all free.

Bad Piggies

If you have played/heard of the wildly popular Angry Birds, chances are you’ll be familiar with the main characters of Rovio’s Bad Piggies. While the pigs are once again after the birds’ eggs, this time they’re on the attack. Basically, you must use your knowledge of physics and problem-solving capabilities to build machines and steer the pigs to their final destination. It’s a little tricky but ultimately a ton of fun once you get used to it.

Disco Zoo

Disco Zoo, created by the team at NimbleBit, takes gamers back to the days of playing Battleship with your friends and family. However, it ditches the naval warfare approach and opts for something sillier, though equally challenging. Like you did in Battleship, you’re trying to discover the hidden pieces (or animals, in this case) and eventually throw a disco party. Yes, it’s absurd, but it’s a lot of fun, too.

Betfair Bingo

Continuing the throwback feel created by Disco Zoo, Betfair bingo embodies the anyone-can-play dynamic of a game that can be traced back to the 16th century. On the Betfair gaming platform, though, everything is modern and stylish. Also, newcomers are offered sign-up bonuses, there’s a chance to play for charity, and you can even win some serious cash. This isn’t your grandma’s bingo, though she, too, could learn to play it pretty quickly.

Pocket League Story 2

Football fans, rejoice, because the cartoon-y Pocket League Story 2 is one of the best sim-based sports games available right now. Developed by Japan’s Kairosoft, the title centers on all the aspects of the sport outside of actually playing it. The goal is to grow your team from local heroes to international superstars, all through obtaining the best players, building your own facilities, and nurturing your squad.

Nightbird Trigger X

And now for what’s easily the prettiest game on here, Nightbird Trigger X offers fast-paced, pick-up-and-play action for gamers wanting a little more excitement. There’s a lot going on in this title from COLOPL, but it’s an addictive and ever-expanding (through updates) experience worth playing. If you can’t get enough of it, you can always go back and play the previous entries in the Nightbird Trigger series.

So there you have it, five games for your Android that are free to play and sure to eat up any and all of your free time. Did we miss a game that you think should make the list? Make a case for it in the comments section!

4 Biggest Competitors of the New iPhone 6

iphone 6 vs anroid

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were just released and for those who aren’t jumping ship to buy the newest item in Apple’s long lineup, there’s great news. Several Android phones are going neck-to-neck to deliver features that (quite possibly) blow the iPhone 6 right out of the water.

At first glance, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus look amazing and sleek externally—but you have to really examine what lays under the hood. The iPhone 6, features a 4.7” screen that is slightly smaller than ones found on most smartphones. The much larger 5.5” on the iPhone 6 Plus, push it into “phablet” territory— although the phone is much narrower (and longer) than most others. The iPhone 6 and 6 plus models are fairly light; weighing 4.55 ounces and 6.07, respectively.

The regular iPhone 6 features a LED backlit IPS and retina display with a 1334×750 resolution; the iPhone 6 Plus comes with a better 1920×1080 resolution.

Both feature only an 8 MP camera and 1.2 MP front-facing one, which are surprisingly much lower than expected. The video option looks more promising—as it will record in continuous autofocus in 1080p HD. Like other Apple produces, both the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus come only in fixed 16, 64 and 128 G storage options; why there isn’t a 32 G, is a mystery. Neither phone includes a removable storage option (via a microSD card slot) — so whatever storage option you buy is exactly what you’ll get.

So if you want something other than one of the new iPhone 6 models, these 4 top Android models deliver the most bang for the buck and will undoubtedly give Apple a run for its money.

1.    Samsung Galaxy S5

The Samsung Galaxy S5 features a 5.1” Full HD Touch Screen Display, which is slightly larger than the iPhone 6’s 4.7” screen. Its screen comes in a super AMOLED screen display with 1920x 1080 pixels (the same as the iPhone 6 Plus). There is hardly anything comparable with the S5’s brilliant 16 MP camera. It also has a 2 MP front-facing camera.

Though it comes with 16 GB of storage, the S5 can be expanded via a microSD card (unlike either iPhone 6 model). In terms of operating systems, the S5 runs off of Android 4.4 Kitkat® (where the iPhone runs off of iOS 8). The S5 is a heftier, but more solid phone in the Galaxy’s lineup (5.59 oz)—heavier than the standard iPhone 6, yet much lighter than the iPhone 6 Plus.

2.    LG G3

The LG G3 features a large 5.5-inch Quad HD IPS display (the same size as the iPhone 6 Plus screen). At, 5.28 oz. the LG G3 is remarkably nearly a gram lighter than the iPhone 6 Plus! Its 13 MP camera blows the iPhone 6’s 8 MP camera out of the water. Like the Galaxy S5, the LG G3 has an Android 4.4 Kitkat operating system.

3.    Samsung Galaxy Note 4

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will be released on Oct. 17th. This phablet holds a lot of promise and will go neck-to-neck with the iPhone 6 Plus. With a 5.7” HD screen, it’ll be bigger than the Plus’s 5.5”. At 6.21 oz., it’ll also weigh more. Unlike the iPhone 6 Plus’s fixed storage, the Note 4 will come with 32 and 64 GB memory options, as well as expandable storage space.

Unlike many other devices on the market, the Note 4 will come with a 16 MP camera and impressive 3.7 MG front-facing camera. The Note 4 will also feature a metal frame, unlike many in Samsung’s Galaxy lineup.  It’ll run off of Android 4.4 KitKat, have an AMOLED display and have a screen resolution of 2560 x 1440.

4.    HTC One M8

The HTC One M8 features a 5” full HD screen and weights 5.64 oz. — lighter than a nice middle ground between the two iPhone 6 models. Unique to the M8 is a Duo Camera with “UltraPixel” and a Smart Flash. They allow users can add unique 3D features to photos after they are taken. There’s also a feature called, “Zoe Highlights” that create 30-second photo montages with different themes.

If you haven’t yet run out to get the new iPhone 6—or aren’t ever planning to—don’t worry. Android phones continue to push the boundaries of today’s mobile technology. These four phones will definitely out shine the iPhone—and you can avoid those long lines and backorders.

Android Mobile Casino Players Dominate

Android Mobile Casino Players Dominate 

Apple vs Android

The ongoing battle for dominance in the mobile arena between Android and Apple can be likened to the erstwhile rivalry between Mohamed Ali and Joe Frazier. The question remains: who is Ali and who is Frazier in the mobile arena? Regardless, it’s all about entertainment value, and that’s precisely what users of both Google Android and Apple smartphones and tablets are interested in. There is no doubt that Android dominates an overwhelming share of the mobile markets, with third quarter market share in 2013 topping 81%.

Contrast that to Apple’s seemingly insignificant market share in the mobile arena. Numbers alone do not account for profitability, as is evident by the fact that Apple generated some 56% of profits during the third quarter of 2013 – even with its greatly diminished market share. Users of both operating systems are able to maximize their entertainment pleasure by way of high-quality mobile apps delivered by the world’s finest online gaming operators.

Mobile Rivals Go Head-to-Head for Player Patronage

iPhone 5 Cases which are out of this world !

iPhone 5 Cases Something Different

Don’t you just love a iPhone case that is just a little bit different to the main high street stores and this is what I have found at ‘The Dairy’

The Dairy’s (own words)

‘Slap some personality into your favourite geek device and break through the ranks of uniformity with our amazing case designs or even create your own’.

I was trying to find a new case for my iPhone 5s when I came across this fantastic iPhone store based in Australia called ‘The Dairy’  (Don’t worry they ship all over the world for free) which had an absolutely fantastic range of cases not just for the iPhone but the following devises.

Cases available for:

  • iPhone 4/4s
  • iPhone 5/5s
  • iPod Touch 4th Gen onwards
  • iPad 2 onwards
  • iPad Mini
  • Samsung Galaxy S / S2 / S3 / S4
  • Samsung Galaxy Note

The Dairy is a 100 % Australian company with all the designs made and printed in OZ.

The company is all about fun and bringing personality back into the mobile phone case world, after all we do carry our phones with us all the time (if you are anything like me you can’t live without it).  The Dairy’s high quality phone cases feature some of the best designs I have seen for a very long time they are stylish but also fun and very unique especially if you design your own.

The cases have been added to various collections, which is great if you want to check out a particular area which resonates with you.  Personally I just loved looking at the full range on the gallery as I wouldn’t want to overlook any designs

What I loved about this company is that the designs are absolutely fantastic like this Jelly Bean design, they also have a range called the The Candy Shop including Gummy Bears, Smarties etc.

Jelly_Beans_largeGummy_Bears_large

 

The very best feature is the design your own case how about showing your baby pics, holiday snaps or wedding photo’s and if you have the money get a case to match your outfit for the night now that is living the high life.

Technical Stuff

Every one of our polycarbonate cases is printed using the latest sublimation technology that allows designs to be embedded onto the casing. This is NOT your regular sticker affair but a high-tech process that ensures you get a durable, long lasting case you can use for ages (yep the image won’t fade or rub off, not like those cheap and dodgy cases). – Couldn’t have said it better myself

‘Geeks Have Landed’ would look fantastic on a case or even our logo on :

I’m liking this 

Plenty of designs available, or just create your own and free delivery although you might have to wait a couple of weeks depending on where you live, and with Christmas coming up that has to be one present in the bag.

 

The Best Children’s Apps For Your Tablet

Many thanks to Ken Embechebe, owner of UK based gadgets site Universal Gadgets, for this insightful article on Apps for Children.

Nowadays, many children grow up in a world where access to touch-screen internet connected devices is common-place. Millions of people use smartphones, tablets and computers every day.

Whereas the previous generation had Nintendo Gameboys, and handheld consoles, this generation have powerful tablet computers. As many adults will know, giving a child unmonitored access to the internet can lead to potentially dangerous situations. This is where apps come in handy. Utilising apps allow your children to enjoy their tablet experience whilst you can rest easy knowing exactly what it is they’re doing.

Understanding how to best engage, entertain and educate our children through the use of these applications is vital. The below collection of tablet apps manage to be fun and educational; a mix that’s quite often incredibly hard to master.

Learn:

Social camera apps are all the rage at the moment.
