Changing SIM cards can be quite an annoyance, especially if you travel to the same places often, and don’t want to deal with international roaming fees. That’s one of the reasons why dual SIM smartphones are pretty useful.
My mother has boxes of old 35mm film from my youth tucked away in closets and the attic. Most of those pictures we have probably never looked at because the prints were lost long ago. If you have a bunch of old 35mm film around, a new product is on Kickstarter which will help you get these images into your smartphone in digital form.
After the numerous times I’ve dropped my iPhone, I totally believe in the protection of a sturdy case. Thanks to cases, my current phone still has no scratches, so when I inevitably upgrade, the pain in my wallet will be a lot less thanks to the resale value I’ll get from a non-messed-up phone.

I’ve rarely had to use a handset with my smartphone, maybe that’s because I don’t talk much on it, and most earphones tend to have built-in microphones, so they are perfectly capable of acting like handsets.
Depending on what type of jeans you wear, I think most of us will agree that it can be uncomfortable having to carry your smartphone in the front pocket. Years ago, I had a pair of dress slacks that had a little pocket midway down the thigh that unzipped that you could poke a smartphone into.
I know I’m not the only person who has been itching for car manufacturers to finally begin integrating wireless smartphone charging into their vehicles. The first company to do this on a production vehicle is Toyota (Dodge is offering the feature as an after-market add-on for it’s 2013 Dart).
I have to admit that I use my Bluetooth speaker almost daily. Whether it’s to listen to music while I take a shower, or go to sleep while listening to an audiobook, I definitely get the most of this kind of device.
It’s never good when your bathroom scale gives you inconsistent readings. That’s probably one of the reasons why people seem to like these new high-tech scales that can track your weight history via your smartphone. There aren’t too many available on the market yet, so it’s good to see more alternatives popping up like this one from Wahoo Fitness.
I’ll start out this review by saying that I’ve been an avid iPhone user since the day the first model came out. I just haven’t seen an Android phone I liked well enough to even consider a switch – until now.
After having played around with a couple of wireless speakers, I have to admit that I like them. The wireless JBL SoundFly is somewhat diminutive, but it packs enough power to let you listen to your music in almost any room.
The speaker plugs into a power outlet and it packs 20W of power.
Nothing sucks more than running out of power when you need it the most. And by that, I mean running out of juice to power your smartphone, MP3 player, flashlight, radio, and other gadgets that run on batteries.
While a new crop of smartphones has just been released in the U.S., the Japanese aren’t going to fall behind anytime soon. They just upped the ante with the new Sharp Aquos Phone Zeta SH-02E, which is the first production smartphone with an IGZO display.
