If you're like me, you're always running out of battery life on your various gadgets during the day. Whether it's your cell phone, MP3 player or laptop, we all could use more battery life at some point. That's why the Powergorilla Battery Charger is nifty to have around.
This unit is portable and resembles a brick of sorts. It can be used to charge up your portable media devices or your laptop, if you wish. Specs for this battery charger include the ability to amp up your laptop for an extra 2-5 hours and other portable devices up to 20 hours.
There are adjustable voltage options as well, letting you specify just how much power you want. And LCD screen always keeps you in the know when it comes to how much power is left and its status. The Powergorilla Battery Charger works with devices charged by means of USB. You can expect to pay $299 for this gizmo. The added battery life is certainly worth it, almost $300 is a lot of money for some people.
Sanyo has announced another fiendishly-complicated looking GPS system with an unusual name. The NV-SD585DT 'Gorilla' has a 5.8-inch touchscreen, 4GB SSD and a 1-Seg digital TV tuner. There's also an ECO driving mode, as seen recently on Digitalcube's U7 GPS.
So the GorillaPod is not new, still cool, but not new, what is new is the accessories they are now packaging with it. There is a suction cup and a couple of Velcro attachments each of which are mountable on the GorillaPod just like a camera.
Smile!! If you love to take photos, you know that sometimes the great picture is hard to capture. Finding a right spot to shoot is not always easy, but thanks to the Gorillapod, now you can shoot from anywhere from any terrain you want.
The Gorillapod is a tripod with three flexible legs that can rotate 360 degrees. It can grip on to just about anything. Whether you are shooting with a small digital camera, an SLR, or a video camera, the Gorilapod is there for you.
A new report sheds some interesting light on just what Apple may be up to this Fall. As they bet big on Sapphire glass (to the tune of $700 million!), it seems iPhone and iWatch screen production is ramping up as well. As we anticipate new smartphones and a wearable from Apple, we may be through the Sapphire looking glass on both.
Kyocera and Verizon has just beaten Apple to the punch, whether or not the latter actually reveals a sapphire glass-toting iPhone 6 in September. Kyocera's Brigadier smartphone comes with a decent set of mid-tier specs, a near indestructible Sapphire Shield display, and a price tag that may sound too good to be true.
When Amazon wades into a new segment, competitors take note, and few devices have been so nervously anticipated as the Fire Phone. Amazon's first smartphone doesn't just put Prime in your pocket, it also pushes the limits of UI, with its quartet of Dynamic Perspective cameras, and computational photography, with Firefly. Ambitious, then, but Jeff Bezos & Co. have seldom lacked that. Question is, does the Fire Phone deserve to be the hottest handset in town?
