Griffin Technology, a top company that is known for innovative accessories for personal computing and digital media, shows an awesome little device that doesn’t just look beautiful, but also allows you to use it for almost anything for media production or consumption.

If you’re familiar with Griffin, you might already know about the PowerMate that they had. It’s a Bluetooth device that can be connected to a computer via USB and can be used for multiple purposes. Recently, Griffin unveiled a new wireless version of the PowerMate Bluetooth, which supports Bluetooth 4.0. Currently, the wireless PowerMate Bluetooth is compatible with Mac laptop or desktop that supports Bluetooth 4.0 protocol. It has a power requirement of two (2) AAA batteries included, but you shouldn’t have to change the batteries more than you would an Apple wireless mouse.

Essentially, the PowerMate is a programmable USB controller. There are six actions or movements that it can do; rotate it left to right, click on it once, click and hold, click and hold then rotate it right and left. Each one of these actions, you can assign to a particular keyboard function in all of your favorite programs.

The program is fairly intuitive and one of the software that you would be getting with your PowerMate is a program where you can connect a multiple PowerMates at a time to a single computer. Through this software, you can set several commands in just a few clicks. Unlike with the old PowerMate, the new PowerMate’s sensitivity can be adjusted so you can be as minute or as big as you want to be. No matter what you want to set it to—zoom in, zoom out, brush size adjustments — everything can be done easily by setting it up using the new PowerMate.

If you want to have your own PowerMate Bluetooth, you can get it for only $59.99. Griffin Technology’s PowerMate Bluetooth will be available starting Summer of this year. Learn more information about this wireless programmable controller at GriffinTechnology.com.

FYI Connected Watches

The gang at FYI Watches have looked at the other wearable technologies out there including the so-called smart watches. They noticed something missing – style and purpose. They took that observation and the knowledge of what we really wanted and needed in a connected wristwatch and came up with the FYI Watches. Chris Montera, the Geekymedic and Jamie Davis, the Podmedic from Health Tech Weekly chatted with Brian Pemberton from FYIwatches.com about these innovative designer watches from Geneva Watch Group, one of the largest designers of wristwatches in the world.

The FYI Watches are able to connect to your iOS iPhone or Android devices giving you all the alerts you’re looking for, without the additional wasted space or extraneous information, with just a glance at your wrist. No more embarrassing moments digging in your pocket or purse for your phone to check on a call. You’ll know who called or texted from your wrist and you can then make a determination on whether you want to bring out your phone to respond. There’s also a proximity alarm so you don’t walk off without your mobile phone, making sure you’re connected to your home and work all the time without worrying about losing your phone.

You can pick up one of these fabulous connected watches in a month or so at FYIWatches.com for around $69.00 or in a local retailer near you in the next three to six months.

Bluetooth Connected Smart Jewelry Wows the Ladies at CES

Wednesday, January 22nd, 2014

csr_bluetooth_smart_jewellery_greenGet wearable technology giving you bluetooth connectivity with a little bit of bling at this year’s International CES conference. Anne Montera from the Tech Podcast Network and Health Tech Weekly checked out some connected jewelry this year at the Showstoppers event at CES 2014. Paul from CSR.com brought Bluetooth Smart Jewelry to the show this year and Anne felt compelled to try it on. Most wearable technology is clunky and tech focused. CSR has wearable tech that is fashion oriented and fitting with people’s personal style.

The idea that you can take jewelry or branded fashion items and make them have wearable technology capable resonates well with attendees this year at the conference, especially with women. The technology chipset can be added to any item of jewelry from a necklace, to a bracelet or even a ring. You can check out more information from the folks at CSR by visiting CSR.com and watch the videos that show how the wearable connected jewelry is made. Hopefully, the jewelry will be available for purchase sometime in the next 12 months.
