Coolest remote ever? iPod Touch controls everything

Savant, a gadget designing tech company, has recently unveiled its Touch Remote prototype. Basically, it’s an iPod Touch embedded in to a remote control. It can control anything, from TV and audio equipment, to lights and security cameras. It’s about as ‘all-in-one’ as you can get. In order for it to work, you do need to purchase the control hub, and attach…

iPhone accessory to help diabetics: iBGStar blood glucose meter

Everyday, I just become more and more amazed at what this platform can do. Case in point: Checking blood glucose levels. It’s a key procedure for diabetics, who need to monitor their blood sugar on an ongoing basis. There are a wealth of gadgets out there that can do this, and there are even some other iPhone-oriented accessories that do the job as…

iPhone 4 physical keyboard spotted at IFA

When the iPhone first came out, it was a pretty big jump from what phones were like at the time. It was considered a huge touchscreen (with a huge lack of buttons, except for home, volume and power). Most people fell immediately in love. But others just couldn’t get past the fact that it lacked any form of a physical keyboard. Most took it upon…

Awww, Pogoplug — bad timing?

Just a couple days ago, the company announced what would’ve been exciting news not too long ago…

Back when this was a rumored device, I must’ve harbored some sort of subconscious fantasy that Apple would include a kickstand in the tablet, not unlike the HTC Evo’s built-in wonder. Who was I kidding? There was no way Cupertino was going to go against its minimalistic design…

I Like It: Mirror Back Protector for the iPhone 4

I have a love/hate relationship with reflective screen protectors. To me, it’s just an intrinsically wacky product category. The problem starts with its fundamental reason for being – to turn the iPhone screen into a mirror. That’s great for applying makeup, scoping out the scene behind the user, or sporting something slick and vaguely futuristic. But…

Clamshell keyboard for iPad strolls through FCC

You may remember a while back, we told you all about the ClamCase keyboard for the iPad, which was the first we heard of a keyboard that offers the look and feel of a laptop on the tablet. Well, it seems it may not be the first one available in stores though. We could see another clamshell-designed Bluetooth iPad keyboard arrive pretty soon. The…
