03/06/2014, Kids are a bundle of energy, joy, and at times, frustration – especially when you are already running late for a particular event, and they are frolicking all over the house – with some of them even indulging in a little bit of hide and seek along the way. And for those moments when you all hit the local mall, it can be quite challenging for a new parent to […]
03/06/2014, Earlier this morning, we did take a closer look at the Le Chal smartshoes which will help the blind or visually impaired get around without additional or external help, but this time around, a new pair of shoes that will also rely on GPS technology which will be able to assist dementia patients as well as those afflicted with Alzheimer’s disease, as caregivers need not worry as before about their […]
02/27/2014, Apple Maps has not exactly been the most accurate way to get around somewhere which you are not familiar with, as a grandmother in rural Pennsylvania can attest to. In fact, for the past one and a half years, Apple Maps has been sending skiers who rely on their iPhone to get around to her home, rather than the ski lodge which they intended to visit. Basically, Apple Maps would […]
01/03/2014, TomTom has already updated its GPS lineup Go series in Europe back in April and today, the company launched the new TomTom Go Series with TomTom Traffic in the US. The most significant update is the total re-thinking and re-design of the user interface, and from the screen shots I saw, it looks really promising: everything looks sleeker and nicer, the color scheme is much more harmonious and all the […]
12/04/2013, Trusting your phone to navigate you through a heavily-populated city is something we’re sure many of us have done as we try our best to follow directions to get to our destination in a timely manner. But what if our clothing could be used to help direct us to our destination? That would help in cutting down how often we stare at our phones, and is exactly what the NAVIGATE […]
11/18/2013, Let us face the facts – the world today is not as forgiving or as friendly as it was all those years ago when our grandparents were wee kids, running around the neighborhood without a care in the world. Crime was basically unheard of then, and a murder was a big deal. Well, kidnapping cases have been on the rise over the decades, so what can a parent do on […]
11/14/2013, Prior to Google Maps, MapQuest was the king of direction giving, although we’re sure if you used the service, you ended up with directions that were actually less accurate than Apple Maps. Either way, people trusted MapQuest back in the day and the service is now attempting to win back its old users by completely redesigning its mobile apps on iOS and Android.
11/13/2013, When it comes to sharing information about yourself to others, this can prove to be a double edged sword. For instance, it does give you a record that you can stash away for posterity to know just where you have been, but on the other hand, it also allows others to know just where you were, and where you are right now – which might spell trouble for your empty […]
10/03/2013, Just like fashion, whenever a new season kicks in, there is a change for your wardrobe. In the world of hunting or fishing, it would be new gear that tend to claim you could bring your game to the next level, never mind the fact that your technique and lack of expertise is what’s holding you back. But the marketers do not want to tell you that – no sir, […]
09/16/2013, Garmin has just unveiled a couple of GPS running watches, where they come in the form of the Garmin Forerunner 620 and Forerunner 220. These two models happen to be the lightest, thinnest, and most advanced offerings for runners from Garmin to date, and Garmin claims that if you do not happen to have a personal running coach, either one would make for a pretty decent substitute. First of all, […]
08/29/2013, Summer is coming to a quick close as Labor Day weekend is nearly upon us, which means you soon won’t be able to head down to your local beach, lake or pool and take a quick dip as it’ll the temperatures will start to dip very soon. Although if you live in the southern part of the U.S., you can completely disregard that last sentence as it’s pretty much party […]
07/30/2013, Well, well, it seems that you might want to upgrade your navigational systems on your multi-million dollar yacht after hearing this news – researchers from the University of Texas claimed to have succeeded in generating fake GPS signals, and this effort was not done through a computer program performing a brute force hacking, but it required several years of work and mistakes before the team managed to spoof GPS (Global […]
06/24/2013, Garmin is dipping into the Android waters again, this time with its Monterra, which is a dedicated handheld GPS.
04/22/2013, Cyclists seem to always get the raw deal, with pedestrians complaining when they cycle on the sidewalks, and with motor vehicle owners complaining about cyclists if they cycle on the road, especially since they aren’t as readily visible compared to cars or maybe even motorbikes. Looking to strike a bit of harmony between cyclists and drivers in general, navigation company Navevo has teamed up with Transport for London and released […]
