The iHealth Blood Pressure monitor is an FDA approved product and is now in its second generation with wireless bluetooth connectivity allowing connection to more mobile devices via a wider array of app offerings. This makes it a great option for families who want or need to monitor their blood pressure on a more regular basis.

Cloud or App Based Health Tracking

The application from iHealth comes with a free cloud service that allows you to store data online for retrieval later on a web browser instead of the mobile device. Via the app or the cloud, all of the data can be tracked and trended to give users a view of health progress and changes over time.

The iHealth suite of health monitoring tools is available now from a variety of retailers.

Geekazine at CES13 – TPN’s 3rd Year Live Streaming CES!

Geekazine

It’s that time of year again. Time to get plans in order and get ready for the biggest event of the year.

Holidays? No! I’m talking CES 2013!

Hello, I’m Jeffrey Powers of Geekazine and How to Record Podcasts. I am here to let you all know I will be once again going to CES 2013! Just like Geekazine did in 2012. Just like Geekazine did in 2011. Now it’s 2013 and I’m heading out there again!

What I’m expecting this year at CES

I expect the tablet and smartphone imitative will be crazy. Everyone will have an app for these devices or an accessory to connect to these devices. I expect 3D will still be making strides and TV screens will get bigger and thinner.

LTE is being rolled out but it doesn’t mean the next version of wireless is not going to rear it’s head. Your home wireless is going to pass 802.11n (with 802.11ac) and you will soon pass a Gbps mark.

TPN Live Stream of CES

With the booth move to North hall, I expect our live stream will be off the charts. There will be a lot of traffic where we are so our exposure will increase ten-fold.

Never before have I been this excited about CES. With CES being the largest show floor I am hoping to see a lot of innovative technologies and great new gadgets.

Then there are the after parties. Lots of great events where you can meet the cast and characters that cover CES year after year.

This is the cant-miss show of the year and I am excited to be part of it.

Here is the presentation in the video if you would like to follow along:

Line2: Add a Second Line to Android or iOS device

Add Flexibility with WiFi Connection Second Line

You may want to keep business calls separate from personal calls. You may want to keep your cellphone number private, or have responsibilities for a volunteer organization or agency that needs a public face. Line 2 is a great choice for professionals.

And as an added bonus, you can take an old iPhone, add this $10 a month application and have a fully functional phone within a wifi cloud that will forward to a regular phone or voicemail when you are outside of the wifi zone.

There’s a 7 day free trial period.

Perch: Solution for Chargers Left Behind

Sunday, February 26th, 2012

Don’t Lose Your Charger

Road Warriors are famous for multi-tasking on the run. One of the consequences is that they often run out of their hotel rooms or airline business clubs with a variety of chargers left behind – either behind drapes, under desks or in the out-of-the-way places that outlets live.

Perch has developed a device that sounds the alarm whenever you depart. It very simply reminds you to take your charger for mobile phone, GPS, radar detector, laptop or other device with you, instead of leaving it behind and coming up short on juice a few hours later.

Duracell is Bringing Wireless Charging Everywhere

Friday, February 24th, 2012

Duracell is starting in one the mecca’s of sports, Madison Square Garden, in their pursuit to build a network of wireless charging everywhere you go. They will be partnered with some 2013 cars and envision a future of airports, coffee shops, and more where your devices will just charge wirelessly simply by being there in that location.

Partnered with Proctor and Gamble, Duracell is perhaps the first to tackle this market, and they are in it in a big way with lots of expansion plans. Your phone won’t just magically charge by being present in a location, though. There will be Powermat stations available in locations where you will likely spend an extended period of time, like coffee shops, bars, and the like. They also plan a Google Maps app that will show you charging locations in your area. In fact, eventually they envision the Powermat technology built right into new devices with no case necessary.
