Last January, Amazon announced AutoRip, a program which allows you to get free MP3s for any CDs you’ve purchased since the mid-90s. Now, they’re extending that offer with AutoRip for vinyl record purchases, according to reports. As of last week, you can now get free MP3 versions of music purchased on vinyl, which is a great deal for music lovers who want the sound of vinyl, but still like the convenience of having a digital copy of their music.
Thanks to a successfully funded Kickstarter campaign, emergency cell phone charging is about to get a whole lot…smaller! Instead of having to drag around a cord and find a power source or pack a bulky self-contained charger, we’ll soon be able to travel with a keyring charger that’s the size of a quarter to make sure you have some extra juice in case of an emergency.
Back in 1997, just about every pre-teen girl (and lots of guys too) had a Tamagotchi or at least one of the knock-off brands of electronic pets. I was obsessed with mine until my parents made me get rid of it. Apparently, it’s really annoying to light sleepers when your pixelated cat is beep-meowing for food at three in the morning!
Now, you can relive the glory days of the mid-90s as the proud owner of a Tamagotchi once again. Tamagotchi L.i.f.e. is a new app available on iOS and Android that allows you to take care of a virtual pet just like you did in the good old days. The app is free, though there is an ad-free paid version available as well.
A team from the University of Notre Dame has developed the first iPad app to help you diagnose concussions. Is this the future of healthcare?
A team at University of Notre Dame has developed the very first app for diagnosing traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) using voice recognition. Currently, there are 1.6 million to 3.8 million sports-related TBIs every year, including 300,000 among young athletes. This app could help diagnose concussions and other TBIs faster, helping those with injuries avoid long-term problems. In addition, there are non-athletic applications to this app, including helping diagnose TBIs in the field for members of the military.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve wished I could “call” my keys to find them, just like I do when I misplace my cell phone. Now, that’s actually a possibility (sort of). With Stick-N-Find Bluetooth stickers, you can track and find just about any item using your cell phone.
Stick-N-Find is about the size of a quarter, so you can stick it on almost anything, not just your key chain. You can set it to buzz or flash a light, and you can also have the complimentary phone app alert you when your sticker goes out of range.
