Internal tablet speakers fall more than short of an impressive sonic experience. Out of an iPad, Netflix film audio tends to sound like it’s struggling to even present character dialog let alone translate impressive explosions or emotive soundtracks. Inevitably, you end up jabbing the volume-up button as if you were scaring the device into pushing out louder, more definitive sound.

Have you ever heard that Bill Gates installed sensors in his home that will adjust a room’s environment when someone walks in – registering his or her body temperature, stress level, or age… This might be mythical, or Gates’s computer-controlled home even more impressive, but either way, few of us can share this experience, considering that we’re not all electronics billionaires.
But there is a tiny white cube that can report temperature, humidity, noise, light, air quality, and barometric pressure to it’s accompanying iPhone app—providing us everyday people with something close to the Gates House experience. Continue reading →
Reading lights always seemed to me to be uncomfortable clip-ons that obstructed my reading experience instead of illuminating it. It also seemed frustrating to flip on the lamp near my bed to read a book on my Kindle – a strange process of using older technology to light new technology.
