Digital Driver’s Licenses Could Be a Real Thing Next Year

Driver’s licenses are kind of important. They don’t just allow you to operate a half-ton vehicle on public highways going 65 miles an hour. They also let you travel to places you’ve never been; get you into bars with your friends; and are frequently utilized as evidence of your ability to work and exist in [...]

Google Now Just Got a Whole Lot Smarter

It seems Google has realized it can’t do it all (GASP!)—so it’s getting some help from the other useful apps you have on your phone. Google Now is utilizing its feature called “cards” and integrating them with information pulled from other apps you’ve already downloaded. (Want to get Google Now? Download the Google App for [...]

What’s Up with Snapchat’s New Discover feature?

On January 27, I got a message from Snapchat that simply had me go to the App Store to download a new update. I had no idea what I was getting into—or, should I say, what Snapchat was getting into. Turns out, Snapchat has updated its app to include a Discover feature. Team Snapchat says, [...]

Review: The New LinkedIn Job App is Simple and Effective

I’m just going to say it. I’ve been impressed with LinkedIn. On its way to irrelevancy just a few short years ago, they’ve really stepped up their act, becoming a go-to resource for staying connected to coworkers, movers and shakers in your industry. They’ve really stepped up their mobile app and their online presence, and [...]

Don’t Spend a Fortune on Smart Lighting. Get This Instead.

A few years ago, we told you about LIFX, a smart bulb you can control with your smartphone. Back then, it was just an idea. Today, you can buy them. Only trouble? They cost $99…each. Ouch. Plus, what about all the old “regular” bulbs you have lying around? You’re just going to dump them in [...]

But these gadgets almost seem superfluous and cumbersome when compared to this one brilliant bracelet.

Control Your Music Without Touching Your Device

The invention of the personal mp3 player made the entire world realize something we really knew for years: music makes everything better. Going for a run? Skiing the slopes? Roller skating at the park? Music will make all of these activities at least five times better. At least. Unfortunately, these activities undoubtedly come with their [...]

Marriott Won’t Block Your Mobile Wi-Fi Hotspot Anymore

Frequent tech-savvy travelers are used to hotels charging big bucks for the privilege of using the hotel’s provided Wi-Fi as a service. In my experience (and others agree), this Wi-Fi can become quite slow, especially when it’s trying to handle all the smartphones, laptops, and tablets we take with us while traveling. (Have you ever [...]

A Portable, Mobile Printer for Now

If you’re like me, when you need to print something, you go to work. With a laptop and an iPad at home, not to mention the prevalence of PDF forms that you can send digitally, the uses for home printers are very few these days. Plus, desktop printers are still pretty clunky and cumbersome. Still, [...]

Run a Small Business? Keep an Eye on Your Competitors with This

My day job is at a NYSE-traded company. They began their social media efforts eight years ago with one guy, and today, that guy has built an entire department. They manage SEO, a corporate blog, Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn content, along with Pinterest and Instagram. They’re constantly in touch with our consumers. And so are our [...]
