03/07/2012, You know the classic symptoms of a liar – twitching eyes, touching one’s nose or ear, fidgeting around, an overall nervous feeling, but those who are extremely skilled in the art of lying can even pass a polygraph test with flying colors. Just how else will technology be able to help the long arm of the law detect liars that come in all sorts of shapes and sizes? Well, there […]

11/14/2011, Think that Siri is one cool babe? Well, here is Trapit, a personalized tool which I believe, we here at Ubergizmo would appreciate. This is a personalized tool that will see action by discovering Web articles and posts, and it is finally open to the public today. How does Trapit work? For starers, it will crawl through around 100,000 sites, while increasing its library of sources by the week, in […]
11/01/2011, Logitech builds a number of gaming-related devices such as mice, keyboards and headphones. In the past, it has been using a set of drivers and software to control each – that’s how these line-up grow organically. But now that many of those lines of products are established and often used together, Logitech has merged much of the software into a single package called Logitech Gaming Software. Within that application, users […]
09/15/2011, In our current situation of patent wars happening left and right, naturally the more patents you have under your name, the more well protected you will be, not to mention you’ll probably have more “weapons” to use against your competitors should a patent dispute arise. Looking to protect their Android mobile platform from future patent lawsuits, Google has just bought a little over 1,000 patents from IBM.
09/12/2011, There are people who work with one computer but with multiple monitors, and then there are those who work with multiple computers with multiple monitors, which usually results in a table strewn with keyboards and mice. Not the most elegant setup but is sometimes necessary in certain professions, and not content with the current solution, Truong Do, an employee at Microsoft Dynamics has come up with what he calls “Mouse […]
09/08/2011, Going for a holiday in some fancy, faraway country where the language is very, very different, and English is not widely spoken can be fun, although when it comes to ordering food at a restaurant, things might end up getting complicated – especially when you do not have a local to guide you through the nuances. Thank goodness for technology – this particular translator app is able to enable both […]
09/07/2011, The Business Software Alliance (BSA) has recently published a report saying that almost half the world’s PC users acquire software illegally and think that it’s okay to do so. It recently published on its blog: 47% of personal computers acquire software through illegal means most of the time, with folks in developing countries contributing to most of the piracy. The BSA conducted its research by surveying approximately 15,000 PC users […]
07/20/2011, Airport security is never easy. Ever since the rise of aircraft-related crimes in recent years, the country has taken serious measures to ensure the safety of its flight crew and passengers on planes. One of the measures implemented to counter this problem has been full-body x-ray scanners that reveal everything about a passenger, most importantly: what’s underneath their clothes. Unfortunately this means that passengers are left in plain view, totally […]
07/06/2011, Unless you use a tripod or have super steady hands or are fortunate enough to have access to professional filming equipment, chances are your home made movies tend to be a bit on the shaky side, and we can’t blame you. After all you were probably thinking of capturing the moment, rather than worrying about image stability, right?
06/27/2011, The nice thing about MacBooks would be the multitouch trackpad, which pretty much functions like how the touch screen on the iPhone/iPod touch/iPad does. It incorporates various multitouch gestures, such as swiping and pinching. As cool as the concept is, one bad thing about it is that it’s limited to what Apple allows you do to do, which is where MagicPrefs comes in.
06/06/2011, Don’t you just hate it when you lose a spanking new device that you worked so hard to save up for? Yeah, that is what we thought, too, and with iPads as well as iPhones being one of the more popular devices in the market, it makes perfect sense that they too would be targets of thieves – after all, it would be quite easy to sell stolen items as […]
05/10/2011, We all know that the HP Veer 4G will be arriving this coming May 15th (that is just less than a week away) from AT&T, but what is the whole point of having a brand new phone if it does not have the stunning software to go along with it? That’s exactly what we were asking as well, and we are pleased to note that little birds have informed us […]
05/05/2011, While the iPhone is by no means at the bottom of the barrel when it comes to hardware specs, Apple’s road map of releasing only one phone a year does put them at a bit of a disadvantage when competing against phones from other platforms such as Android, and we all know how fast phones in the Android world turn obsolete. According to some observations from a Morgan Stanley analyst, […]
