Say Hello to Smart Rope, the Fitbit of Jump Ropes

Say Hello to Smart Rope, the Fitbit of Jump Ropes

smartrope1

The online Apple store this week started selling Smart Rope. What makes this jump rope “smart” you ask? The jump rope counts the number of jumps you take. My first thought was whats the big deal. The Tangram Smart Rope shows the number of jumps right in front of user. So as you jump you will see your jumps “in the air” which is pretty cool. The Smart Rope has built-in LEDs. You can also display the number of calories you burn instead of jumps if you wish. The 23 LEDs embedded in the rope flash at thousands of times per minute, using persistence of vision. The LEDs are bright enough to be seen clearly even in bright room.

The Smart Rope relays your information to your smartphone via Bluetooth. You have to use an app called the Smart Gym. The app displays information on jumps, calories burned and total training time. You can also sync the app with Apple HealthKit to help provide an even more accurate picture of your overall well-being. The cost of Tangram Smart Rope Factory in the Apple Online store is $89.99 or you can get it at Amazon for the same price.

Is Nintendo’s Mini NES too little too late?

Is Nintendo’s Mini NES too little too late?

NESnew

Pokémon Go is everywhere. While you might think this is great news for Nintendo, you would be wrong. Pokémon Go is actually wonderful for Apple and Niantic. The reason is Pokémon Go was developed by Niantic, and published with help from The Nintendo owned The Pokémon Company. Nintendo has licensed rights, receives royalties for games Pokémon. Meaning they are not getting the boat load of the estimated $1.6 million in profit Niantic is making daily from the game. So before Nintendo gets its cut, Niantic, The Pokémon Company, Apple and Google are all receiving a percentage of sales.

That might be the reason  Nintendo is releasing the NES Classic Edition. I wants some of the action and money from all the hype. While the excitement is very real. It is not the game console people were hoping for. Cough, NX, cough. However, the Classic Edition system will come preloaded with 30 games. The main staples such as Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Metroid and others are part of the 30. There are some things you should know about the system before you get too excited. First and arguably most important to know is that mini NES can not play your old NES cartridges. The only games that the Classic Edition can play will be the 30 games we listed at the end of this post. This should not be a surprise since an NES cartridge is actually larger than the min NES.… Read the rest

Pokémon Go Tricks, Tweaks and Hacks

Pokémon Go Tricks, Tweaks and Hacks

PGOintro

Now that you have got your hands on Pokémon GO you can’t seem to put it down. We already gave you The Complete Guide, Tips & Trick to Pokemon Go but here are some Tweaks from the jailbreak world to help you level up. If you are one of the lucky few people who have their device jailbroken we have some tweaks to make Pokémon GO even better than original.Pokémon GO has a failsafe in place to stop you from using Jailbreaks but there are ways around it. NOTE: These might get you blacklisted from Pokémon GO. Use at your own risk.

The Tweaks

  • PokePatch and allows you to play the game on jailbroken devices. What if you don’t even want to leave your house? There is a tweak for that.
  • PokemonGoAnywhere if for you lazy gamers without a drone to fly around. You don’t have to leave your house to search for Pokemon.  Simply tapping on the screen will allow you to walk around the map. That is all well and good but what if you can’t even get into the game due to the servers crashing?
  • FlappyGo got you covered. The tweak lets you play Flappy Bird without leaving the Pokemon GO app. Lets say you don’t have time to even open the app.
  • Pokemon Lock lets you play the game right on your lock screen. While that sounds great I would not recommend it because you have to disable your devices passcode.

The Complete Guide, Tips & Tricks to Pokémon Go

Pokémon Go is a drug. Pure and simple. You know it is killing your battery and productivity but you continue to play. The servers crashing left and right but you just keep logging on. Nintendo’s first mobile-based Pokémon title is an official worldwide even in its broken form. This is also the first VR/AR hit. Pokémon Go shows the power of VR/AR if done right. People are walking around cities and towns looking their phones disregarding hazards in the quest to catch them all. Catching them all is not going to be easy but here’s our complete guide.

“The point of Pokémon Go is to travel around, exploring different geographic areas to find appropriate Pokémon. In a small town, expect to find a lot of normal- and grass-types. Going near water will attract water Pokémon. Playing at night brings out more nocturnal creatures, like Clefairy and Gastly.”

There are plenty of Pokémon if live in urban areas. You can find Pidgeys, Nidorans, Meowths, and Eevees, however if you want to catch a wider variety of Pokémon, good luck. Make friends and expect to do some traveling. Don’t be surprised if you start looking for rustling grass in real life only to disappointed that these patches actually contain no wild Pokémon.


No Pokémon popping up?

  • Tap the lower right hand bar on the main screen for a “nearby” menu of what Pokémon are in your area.
  • Footprints beneath each Pokémon meaning tell you how close they are to you.
  • No footprints?

Snapchat Introduces Memories & My Eyes Only Mode

Snapchat Introduces Memories & My Eyes Only Mode

SaintelDailySnap

Snapchat is not happy just being the new hot place for the millennials to hang out. They have done a lot over the years to transform from a place for sexting to a place where companies and business can get a foot hold into the lives of the young crowd. The newest update brings a new feature called Memories. It’s pretty much what it sounds like, sort of. You can save Snaps and Stories in your own personal collection. Instead of using the Camera Roll in Apple’s default Photos app to save pictures by default; pictures and videos can be saved directly in the Snapchat app.

One of the biggest things about the update is that Snaps that you take can also be saved to Memories then re-used in your Story later one. So there is no confusion, Snaps used in Memories will have a special frame to let people know it’s not in the moment. Sadly, Snapchat says it will be rolling out Memories “selectively over the next month or so” so keep an eye out for the update in your app. You can search for Memories using keywords and Memories are backed up by Snapchat, not Apple.

It’s super easy to find the Snap or Story you’re looking for in just a few seconds by typing keywords like “dog” or “Hawaii” — that way you can spend less time searching and more time enjoying your Memories. We realized that Snapchatters want to feel comfortable showing their Memories to friends while they’re hanging out together, so we made it easy to move Snaps and Stories to My Eyes Only — and avoid awkward moments when a friend stumbles upon a Snap meant just for you.

The Impossible has Happened: Durant Heads to Warriors

The Impossible has Happened: Durant Heads to Warriors

dorrant

I will be the first to say it. I didn’t think that Durant would leave OKC. Heck, OKC didn’t think Durant would leave OKC. However that is just what the superstar has done. Durant is will sign a two-year, $54.3 million contract with the already well stacked Golden State Warriors. The deal will also include a player option after the first year.

“The primary mandate I had for myself in making this decision was to have it based on the potential for my growth as a player — as that has always steered me in the right direction,” Durant wrote. “But I am also at a point in my life where it is of equal importance to find an opportunity that encourages my evolution as a man: moving out of my comfort zone to a new city and community which offers the greatest potential for my contribution and personal growth. “With this in mind, I have decided that I am going to join the Golden State Warriors.” “It really pains me to know that I will disappoint so many people with this choice, but I believe I am doing what I feel is the right thing at this point in my life and my playing career.”

OKCGOldenOf course this takes us right into how will Stephen Curry feel about sharing the limelight with Durant? If they don’t win it all this year will the two-time reigning MVP who can become a free agent after next season leave?… Read the rest
