PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED TO TALENT ZOO’S DIGITAL PIVOT What a shame! No, really, what a shame! Robots and Pencils just released a new app this morning for the iPhone and Apple Watch that gives us a whole new perspective to fitness, weight loss, and our overall health, period. And, it’s no cakewalk, either. Or, wait… maybe it is CAKEWALK. With a growing market for health and mobile fitness, it was bound to happen. A mobile app with personality stepped onto the scene. CAKEWALK is, according to the creator, Ben Myers, meant for “anyone who needs added incentive to stay fit.” They can “download their own personal drill instructor to their phone — a sarcastic cake with legs character who is hard to please and eager to shame.” The app was built on the ideal that some people need tough love in their workout regimen and daily routine. Because some people respond better to harsh criticism, CAKEWALK throws out all traditional models of positive reinforcement out the window, bringing “more sass than sugar” to get people into gear. Public shame brings out the inner tiger in some, pushing them out of their complacent behaviors and into a healthier lifestyle. CAKEWALK isn’t just […]

PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED TO TMC NET’S CALL RECORDING As BlackBerry continues fulfilling pre-sales of a November 6 release of BlackBerry Priv, CrackBerry, the survivors’ guide to everything Blackberry, fills us in on BlackBerry’s SecuSUITE for Enterprise app. This app will be available later this week for BlackBerry 10, Android and iOS. This app is structured to allow VoIP technology to conduct secure, untapped conversations across the globe. This security is set at the maximum security level.

Previously Published to TalentZoo’s Digital Pivot Forget wearable watches by Apple. They’re a done deal, and it might be a good thing. Elegance, flair, and pheromones for the tech world are soon to be unleashed in the form of Eyecatcher by Looksee Labs. Gaining popularity on Kickstarter, this developer is currently raising 224% over the proposed need of $75K. They only have 36 days left in the campaign and still have the potential to reach a “stretch goal” of $250K. Meeting this goal will mean that it will be available on Android as well as on the iPhone. The iPhone was the first choice for the developer. https://www.youtube.com/embed/_hQ5fWtNebQ?feature=oembed ​Eyecatcher reminds us that “smart and sexy is a powerful combination.” Without the need to recharge often, one will wonder if it needs any power at all. As a matter of fact, the rechargeable battery is said to last up to one year on a single charge. This means there will never be another excuse of a “dead battery.” Ladies, we know what your boyfriends will be getting this Christmas. Yes, this bracelet could be dangerous!

Previously Published to TalentZoo’s Digital Pivot In the shade of misfortune, not many are able to take a sports injury and use it to influence the world of technology. Inspired by a tennis injury, our world has been given the gift of see-through technology. Handscape, a company passionate about innovation, has created a case for Apple’s iPhone and iPad devices. The world got a chance to see this technology live on The Sabir Bey Show, Friday, October 9, 2015. We watched as Tong Luo, Founder and Chief Technology Officer of Handscape, turned an ordinary iPad device into see-through technology. He demonstrated the uses of Handycase, playing a game, reading a book, and even showing us how each one of us could hold the whole world in our hands. He went on to explain his project and how it can bring change through innovation. This is a case that will allow us to use more than one finger at a time. Handycase allows you to revolutionize your Apple device and use all ten fingers at once — from either side of the device!

There are many speculations as to what Apple will release next. As a matter of fact, the Internet has been going into overdrive, as “Tech Gurus” try to prophesize Apple’s big announcement set for tomorrow, September 9th at 10:00 AM PST. That’s 1:00 PM for all East Coast enthusiasts. There have been many blog posts and articles released that almost resemble pre-game commentary during the NFL playoffs. The suspense builds, as Apple drops teasers along the web, and most importantly, a site specifically designed for the live Apple event, with the message: “‘Hey Siri, give us a hint. Join us here on September 9 at
10 a.m. PDT to watch the keynote live.’” …and the prompt to add this event to your iCal calendar. You can’t get any more genius than that! Or, can you? Early this morning HandyScape launched a campaign for HandyCase™ technology on Kickstarter. Their goal is to further product design and enhancement of hardware, software, development, marketing and sales support. This technology is a guaranteed hit, as there are rumors flying around that Apple will make its way, as a late bloomer into the gaming realm of entertainment, surely adopting new technologies along the way. Multi-patented and […]
