GroupShot is an easy to use group shot app that helps you turn an ordinary group photo into an impressive photograph.

Group photos are among the most taken photographs, followed closely by portraits. If you spend a couple of hours navigating Instagram or Facebook, you will find out that almost one out of every three photos is a group shot. We like to share our memories with others; one likely reason we like having others in their photos.

iOnRoad, an augmented driving app, uses your smartphone’s native technologies to alert you of possible collisions on the road.

One of the most important things to driving a vehicle safely is to understand the traffic itself. If a car is slowing down and you are right behind it, you will have to apply brakes before you collide with it. Similarly, you have to watch out for unwanted lane shifting, since it can result in accidents in heavy traffic.

Although these are basic things about driving, they are still the most important ones. If you can keep safe distance from other traffic and avoid frequent lane changes, you will be safe. However, if you don’t pay attention to the road, you may not have enough time to apply brakes or steer away to avoid a collision. But you won’t have to stay focused if you’ve an app that warns you when you are risking a collision. iOnRoad, an app from an Israel-based company (that I met with on a recent trip to I went on to learn about Technology in Israel), is an award-winning augmented driving app that does just that.

No photographic memory? No worries! The Memoto lifelogging camera records every moment as you live it.

Modern psychologists have collected solid evidence reflecting that photographic memory is a myth. One can’t recall images from memory with perfect accuracy. Nevertheless, there’s no denying the fact that some people have incredibly accurate memory. Akira Harahuchi, for example, set a world record for recalling the first 83,431 decimal places of pi. There are many other examples of people with phenomenal memories – but none with a true photographic memory.

Although the notion of photographic memory is fiction, you can still recall your best moments, thanks to Memoto. Memoto is a tiny, automatic camera that continuously collects your memories through photo.

PlayStation 3 has been a massive hit all across the world. The new PS3 US version was recently launched to capitalize on the success of the PS franchise.

Most of us remember the days when Nintendo dominated the gaming industry, followed by Sega. Sony introduced its gaming console, PlayStation, in 1994 and it took the market by storm, displacing its competitors within two years of launch.

Today, Microsoft is leading the gaming industry with its Xbox console but Sony isn’t far behind. However, Nintendo is nowhere to be seen, with its worst sales in 2012. To re-dominate the market, Sony has released PS3 US.

Fooducate, an app for healthy food, uses an innovative algorithm to rate food products according to the information on their label as well as the ingredients within it.

When it comes to buying healthy food, most parents have no idea what they are buying. Even if you start focusing on ingredients and fats, with ever changing dietary findings, it’s difficult to know what’s healthy. Similarly, families may have a tough time deciding whether to avoid food coloring or not. Parents also have issues deciding about ingredients such as nitrates, breakfast cereals, trans fats, etc. For most people, it is tough to make a rational decision based on the information we are inundated with each day. With manufacturers making so many claims about their products, who knows what’s accurate. Fortunately, there’s an app to take the guesswork out of healthy eating.

Technology in Israel: I spent a week in Israel meeting with leaders in tech. The result is a thoughtful view of a tiny country that few ever get to see.

If you’re wondering why I haven’t blogged in the last week or so, it’s because I was traveling (with a very tight schedule). Last week I had the pleasure and privilege of taking part in a delegation trip to Israel to meet with the country’s leaders in technology (startups, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, investors, incubators and more). The invitation was extended by the Israeli Consulate of NY and Israel’s Foreign Trade Ministry. The attendees, in addition to myself, were a handful of fellow U.S. bloggers. The trip’s objective was to immerse the delegation into technology in Israel, a tech and startup scene that’s been dubbed the ‘Startup Nation,’ which is also the title of a best-selling book on the very subject.
