Geek Tech Live 58
 
Ok people, I am back from Vegas and we have a lot to cover so lets jump on in. 
 
I found an article detailing seven cool new android apps. I have been called a bit of an Apple fanboy so to show that I am somewhat unbiased here are seven cool and Free android apps to download
  1. Floating image
  2. Google Skymap
  3. Google Goggles
  4. Talk to me
  5. Moviefone
  6. Android Lightsaber (pictured below)
  7. Bubble beats

 I talk a bit about each and give my opinions on them as well. If you try these out I would love to hear from you. Just leave a comment at my blog at http://geektechlive.com. Thanks!
 
I then moved on to talk about Google Buzz and how Executive VP of Product Management at Google Bradley Horowitz stated that Buzz was never meant to rival Twitter or Facebook. I go on a bit of a soapbox talking about this one.
 
Next are two cool camera offering from Sony and Nikon. Sony is only a concept thus far but if it goes to production will be a very cool adition.

The Nikon has a very neat Articulating arm on the viewfinder screen. Very cool tech if you ask me!

Then I move on to free energy clothing? Well sort of caltech researchers have been able to make solar cells that could be woven into fabric so we could eventually have pants taht charge our Iphone 7G’s I guess. Assuming it all comes together and can be marketed and created on a big scale this may be a great leap forward for getting solar energy to the masses.
 
Finally I touch on SEO or Search Engine Optimization. A company out of the UK called SEO Consult has some free tools and one that  shows you “what google sees” when Google Crawls your website.they have the following free tools:
  1. keyword density checker
  2. keyword suggestion tool
  3. link popularity checker
  4. handy meta tag generator
 
 Well thats it for this episode. You can Fan me on Facebook right from Geektechlive.com I am on Twitter at @geektechlive and as always I look forward to your comments on the blog at geektechlive.com

Geek Tech Live Episode 55

GTL logo

Health Gadgets!

So, I got a cold a few days ago and I had even lost my voice there for the last few days. I was worried about not being able to even record a podcast on schedule for this week. It got me to thinking about all the health related Gadgets that are out right now and so once my voice came back I grabbed a few gadgets to share with you all. Below are the list as they appear in the podcast:

Bodybugg.com

bodybugg

I talked a bit about this as my second episode of GeekTechLive.com was all about me using it. I signed up for a 14 week fitness training course at my local gym. part of the course wasto use the bodybugg to help lose weight and track progress.  Please listen to my original podcast back at episode 2 for all the details but I will say this. It definitely made losing the weight easy.

BodyFat Scales

body fat scales

I think these are great for checking your progress on a diet or excercise plan. they arent as precise as the body bugg style of trackers but they definitely should show your your progress on a daily basis. I had one i used for a long time and i definitely found them to be a good replacement after I stopped the body bugg program. the link above will take you to the amazon market place showing all the body fat scales available.

Head spa Massager

What can I say? I cant help but find some wacky, odd and just weird health gadgets.  Take a look at the below “product demonstration” for the HealthCare Head Spa Massager. All I can say is thank gosh its discontinued!

I really dont know what to think of this item.

head massager

I am scared to ask if anyone bought them. they just dont look fun, or even enjoyable or on that point… relaxing. I think I would be mroe stressed out using it than not using it. These are the things that can scar our youth.  click on the above link for more info on this device.

Wireless toothbrush camera

You have been to the Dentist where they take photos of your teeth to show you trouble spots? well now you can do this at home and look for your self! I do think this has merit for making kids brush as they can watch after wards on the TV and see the inside of their mouths close up. so all in all not a bad idea…. kooky. but not bad.

MintPass Talking Dumbells

mintpass talking dumbells

This is one of more interesting and creative concepts to come out of Korea for health. you cant buy these YET but one can only imagine that they will be available soon. and maybe even hook up directly into the Wii ? nah… life cant be that cool. or could it?

GoWear Fit

gowear fit

If you have watched “the biggest loser” at all you might have seen the contestants wearing something that looked like the body bugg pictured  at the beginning of this post. well, you would be wrong.  they are actually wearing the GoWear Fit which you can buy at Amazon for 180 US dollars.

Lastly there is the

Roll Charger

Roll Charger

Ok so how do you get a Zen, Eco friendly workout and still be able to charge those AA batteries for your Xbox controller? The Roll Charger thats how!!

Just put the AA or AAA batteries in the balls and roll them around in your palm. The Balls stimulate pressure points in your hands to relieve tenison and get you to the Zen like state… which you are going to need when you pop out the fully charged batteries to get ready for some Modern Warfare 2 Action! yah!

Geek Tech Live ep 49 Magic mouse review and Liquid image and WordPress theme Headway

Happy New Year 2010!!

I am taking this year to bring us back to the old way of doing things. I got a bit over zealous with my Foley artistry lately and realized you arent listening for the foley ( I hope) but for my information I bring.

That being said: I am trying this episode with no background music or intro music. tell me what you think at info@geektechlive.com or leave a comment on my blog at geektechlive.com

The Magic Mouse review I agve it 5/10 … 8/10 for style.. several million points negative for usability.

Dont get me wrong it works fine.. I just find that the mouse “being a trackpad” occasionally will start scrolling my browser screen all over the place. .. listen to my full rant in the podcast

Next I cover some cool gadget for skiers, boarders and even scuba and swimmers! coming in Summer of 2010! Liquid Image will be unveiling the summit searier snow goggles! Huzzah!

quoting the press release:

The Liquid Image Summit Series is the world’s first snow goggle with an
integrated digital camera. The goggle contains a wide angle lens to
capture all the action while skiing, boarding, sledding or
snowmobiling. The hands free unit has a 5.0 MP (2560 x 1920) camera
mode and a video mode that records D1 video (720×480) at a rate up to
30 frames per second with audio.

The Summit Series Snow Camera Goggle is easy to operate. There is a
button for On/Off/Mode and another button for the shutter. To record a
photo or a video, simply turn on the camera, choose the mode, then
press the shutter button. LED lights inside the goggle indicate the
mode to the user. Large side buttons along the right side of the frame
allow for greater dexterity while wearing gloves.

Liquid Image Summit Series 335 Snow Camera Goggle
The internal memory has 16 MB NAND Flash. The memory is easily expanded
to record thousands of photos or hours of videos by adding a Micro
SD/SDHC Card up to 16 GB. Files may be downloaded to a computer through
the High Speed USB cable
provided, or through a Micro SD/SDHC card.

The Camera operates on an internal rechargeable Lithium Battery
. Estimated battery performance is 2200 still images or 2:20 hrs of video.

The Summit Series Snow Camera Goggle model 335 is estimated to ship
late summer 2010, in time for the Winter Ski Season and for Holiday
shopping. This new model follows the concept of the original Liquid
Image Underwater Digital Camera Mask by creating an easier way to
record photos and videos. The concept of integrating the camera into
the sports equipment allows the user to travel with fewer items and to
keep their hands free while performing sports activities. The
integrated camera records a view similar to what is seen, allowing the
user to share their experience with other people, and to enjoy their
activities to a greater extent because they concentrate less on holding
and operating the camera.

The Summit Series Snow Camera Goggle model number 335 has an estimated
US price of $149.00. Specifications and pricing are estimated at this
time.

Liquid Image Co, LLC, is a manufacturer of cameras, electronics
, toys and games that target sports and outdoor activities with an
emphasis on Sport Technology and POV Cameras. The corporate office is
located in Sacramento, CA, with an international office located in Hong
Kong.

Next I talk about a wordpress theme I am trying out from headwaythemes.com

I am currently using it on geektechlive.com.. check it out and let me know what you think!  I realy am slowly liking this theme and its visual editor. if you are familiar with dot net nuke at all you will get the feel of the “leafs” that this theme allows you to manipulate.  its mostly drag and drop and I only had one small hiccup in the beginning but after that its all working fine.

Once GeekTechlive.com is all done I will do a full review of the theme and my impressions as well.

Once again… please follow me on Twitter! be my friend on Facebook, write me an email or just post a comment! I am nothing without you loyal listeners!

Coming up in episode 50 and 51 I will be getting my paws on a Vtech IS9181 wifi radio and also reviewing Mozy backup service.

Happy 2010!!!

Chris
