Tagg Pet Tracker – Your Pet can Text You while he’s Away

Posted: 15 Feb 2012 08:38 AM PST

When I was a kid we had a dog that ran away all the time, I remember combing the streets and screaming his name over and over, making posters and driving the streets with my dad. Thing is, he was so cute and lovable, we would always find him hanging out with some neighbors, getting fed table scraps and lounging in the grass, but I still worried, I loved him so much.

Well, little Digger’s social life would have been cut short with the Tagg Pet Tracker, designed for dogs and cats over 10 lbs. this small, lightweight device attaches to your pet’s favorite collar with a 2 piece clip. Of course it is designed to withstand all the running, digging, jumping and swimming your pet may encounter during his getaway. The tracker is meant to be worn all the time, in all kinds of weather. 

So you set up your “Tagg zone” and attach the device to your beloved pet and Voila! Set it up so you receive a text message about your dog leaving the Tagg zone then check out exactly where he is on the map, Tagg will even provide you with directions! Use your Smartfone or your computer and know your pet will never be lost again.

Just think of all the time we would have saved looking for Digger, we would have known he was at the Murphys, having barbecue… He would have stayed there is he could.

Less than 100 bucks for the unit, includes 1 month of free monitoring (around $7.99 after that) for more information or to watch a video, please visit www.pettracker.com

SleepRate – and Sleep Well

Posted: 15 Feb 2012 08:06 AM PST

A typical morning at my house begins the same way everyday. I always ask my husband how he slept, and he always informs me that he was up all night. This is constantly a revelation to me, as I am a night owl, often up till 2 or 3 am and he goes to bed at 10, and never once… have I seen the whites of his eyes, or had silence from the snoring in over 10 years…

That being said, a new device is on the horizon that will end the blatant distrust I have for my husbands alleged sleep habits and can help him get better sleep in the bargain, SleepRate is designed for folks who want to check on, or improve their sleep using reliable, measurable data. The system uses Smartphone applications in order to upload heart rate signals from a heart rate monitoring device that is worn overnight. Then, Cloud-based algorithms analyze the information and go on to provide sleep management and improvement tools to the user, by way of a convenient “sleep dashboard”.

Sleeprate is a whole family of new and innovative products that can help us learn how we sleep, and how to get better sleep all within the privacy of our own homes. The company wants us to all be able to gain enhanced well-being by achieving the best nights sleep possible. I know my well-being will be enhanced just by being able to say “You slept like a dog and you know it!” and then be able to prove it!  Ah, I love the small victories!

SleepRate uses a formula that analyzes sleep based on heartrate, (so now I’ll not only know how well he slept, but if he had that Jennifer Lopez dream again) anyway, SleepRate insists that this heartrate method is highly accurate as well as being comfotable, affordable and compatible with most heart monitoring devices. Nighty-Night Rabbit.

iPad 3 set for March 7 launch?

Posted: 15 Feb 2012 05:30 AM PST

Apple truly changed the way we looked at tablets with the release of their iPad, and I would safely venture out to say that the iPad proved to be the death knell for netbooks. After all, how many folks do you know still tote around netbooks with the tablet market growing so rapidly? Of course, the same can be said for the smartphone industry when Apple’s iPhone arrived back in 2007, rapidly changing the way we see multi-touch surfaces on a portable device.

Having said that, the iPad as well as its sequel, the iPad 2, proved to be quite the retail hit, helping Apple achieve record quarterly profits – not to mention having their stock touch the $500 mark recently, marking a new high for Cupertino. Needless to say, Apple is not going to just rest on their laurels, and have been hard at work at the next generation iPad which we will just call it the iPad 3 at the moment. With so many rumors flying around, one of them has received plenty of attention – which is, its release date. It seems that Wednesday, March 7 will be the historic moment when the iPad 3 is introduced to the masses at an event in San Francisco.

Not only that, there are rumors going around that the iPad 3 will see a higher resolution screen than its predecessors, with Sharp’s IGZO panel purportedly being the one that your eyes will meet when you unwrap and power on the iPad 3 for the first time. Apart from that, there is also the possibility of 4G connectivity for US high-speed networks being thrown into the mix. Other rumors claim a quad-core processor – which is a vast improvement over the dual-core A5 processor that we see in the current iPad model.

It would be interesting to see how developers react to the iPad 3 when it arrives – no doubt that droves of the current batch would hope not to have to convert their software and apps to accommodate the higher resolution display, as it seems that the increased screen resolution would just affect the apparent detail level of images. Would you side with the iPad, or make the jump to an Android-powered tablet?

Rokform’s Rokbed Fuzion iPhone 4/4S case is proudly made in the USA

Posted: 15 Feb 2012 05:00 AM PST

“Made in USA” used to be a symbol of quality, but over the years, with the manufacturing of goods being outsourced to countries that have far cheaper labor and poorer working conditions in some cases, we see less and less “Made in USA” labels on products that we purchase off the shelf. In fact, Made in China has long been the mantra for many manufacturers, be it clothes, toys, and consumer electronics equipment. There has been some debate as to whether Apple should make less in the name of profit and bring back manufacturing of their iPhones to the US, but at least Rokform is proud to be all American.

This manufacturer of premium protective cases, stands and accessories for the iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPad, iPad 2 and iPod touch devices has their latest product up for sale – the Rokbed Fuzion Aluminum/Polycarbonate iPhone 4/4S case that is said to be the result of top-quality domestic production. Let us read up more about it in the extended post, and who knows? You might out of the door after that in a jiffy to pick up one of the Rokbed Fuzions.

According to Jeff Whitten, Vice President of Rokform, “At Rokform, delivering the most functional cases, stands and accessories for the latest iPad, iPhone and iPod devices is our top priority. From our raw material sourcing to design and engineering, every aspect of Rokform product development is done right here at our facilities and with our domestic factory partners and suppliers. Our approach to manufacturing and design is unique to the industry. Through this start-to-finish, hands-on method we can ensure the best performance for our customers in every Rokform product.”

The Rokform Rokbed Fuzion is CNC machined from 6061 T-6 aircraft grade aluminum and injection molded polycarbonate, where the polycarbonate lower portion will quickly snap in and out of the aluminum, and yet it is capable of fitting in snugly for a safe and secure protective fit. It will come in a range of anodized colors in order to suit most tastes. Definitely looks mean, this Rokbed Fuzion. You game to dress up your iPhone in this?

Plantar Fasciitis Relief Rocker

Posted: 15 Feb 2012 04:30 AM PST

Being warmed up and properly stretching yourself before you go for your morning run is always essential, as you do not want to pull up with a cramp just 5 minutes into your exercise routine. As for the $39.95 Plantar Fasciitis Relief Rocker, this stretching device will relieve the pain as well as discomfort associated with plantar fasciitis, where it will do its job of preventing it from occurring down the road. All you need to do is stand on the unit with one foot, while performing a gentle rocking motion to stretch the plantar fascia. This move would help prevent the painful inflammation which results in plantar fasciitis.

The v-shaped foot platform will gently stretch the toes toward the shin, while the adjustable heel rest enables you to increase the range of the stretch as you end up being more flexible than ever before. Good thing this particular tool comes with a manual to help you get started with the right foot – pun not intended. The entire daily routine shaves off just five minutes of your precious time, but at least you know it is for your own good, and it can even be used to stretch achilles tendons, ankles, calves, and hamstrings.

Doctor Who Flesh Bowl Figure Creator

Posted: 15 Feb 2012 04:00 AM PST

Being a cannibal is not everyone’s cup of tea, and considered as repulsive in majority of cultures. However, those who follow the Doctor Who series might find this officially licensed merchandise to be worth looking into. We are talking about the $49.99 Doctor Who Flesh Bowl Figure Creator, touted to be the “government’s worst-kept secret”. It comprises a bio frame, a reasonable amount of flesh compound, as well as the necessary tools to get you started.

All you need to do is to follow the (thankfully) included instructions by adding water, mix up the concoction, and wait for a while for the flesh to solidify. Definitely the perfect tool when you want to recreate scenes from The Rebel Flesh. Creating dopplegangers had never been this fun, and I suspect that your kids might find this to be more interesting than their Play-Doh.
