    4 Gadgets and Apps Every Techie Needs

    As technology becomes more prevalent, it becomes more difficult to determine which tools are essential and which qualify as little more than decoration. Naturally, that definition varies greatly depending on your interests. For the tech-obsessed, that means having the coolest, most potentially useful apps and gadgets. Of course, not all awesome tools come with golden guilt around them. As you’ll soon see, some go almost entirely unnoticed when they’re doing their jobs properly. If you have serious tech needs, this list is for you. Virtual Private Network On the less glamorous but extraordinarily useful end, we have the Virtual Private Network (VPN). This is a service that everyone should already be using but is chronically underutilized. Some of that has to do with a reluctance to pay a monthly subscription for a security service, while in other cases it’s simply because few people even know what a VPN is or does. A VPN is a service that lets you access the internet through a remote server. Most subscriptions run around $10 a month depending on your plan. That’s barely more than a couple of cups of coffee. Yet the benefit is huge: VPNs encrypt your online traffic and make you invisible to hackers, trackers and government censorship. What’s more, VPNs have their IP addresses based on their locations. This is why you’re anonymous while using one, but it also comes with another great perk. Regionally locked content such as some YouTube videos and Netflix when you’re traveling can be experienced in full. For a full guide on where to get a VPN and how to set it up, Secure Thoughts is a good place to start. Smartwatch A bit of a forewarning on smartwatches: paying a lot doesn’t necessarily get you better or more useful features. In fact, many of...

    MagicJack Review

    I recently moved over my home phone over to MagicJack. This whole move started a little over a year ago. I had a verizon land line that I was hardly using and spending $65 dollars a month on and only using when my cell phone had no reception. I then had the bright idea to move over my phone service to my internet service providers. My ISPs phone service which was $40 dollars a month cheaper than the 65 dollars I was paying but still too expensive for just a phone. I then started looking around and the MagicJack caught my eye basically because of the great price. I could buy a piece of hardware for $35 dollar and have unlimited calling with no long distance for an entire year compared to the 65 or 40 dollars I was spending a month. After the year was over I could spend $55 dollars to renew my MagicJack subscription for another year and it was still cheaper then what I was paying. When I got the device home the setup was very basic on MagicJacks site just creating an account, picking a local phone number and activating the device. After the setup is done you can disconnect the device from the computer and hook it up to wall outlet as long as ethernet and phone wire are attached everything works. Another great feature of the device is the app for iPhone and Android which allow you to make wifi calls from anywhere you have wireless or cell phone service. VoIP is the wave of the future and MagicJack has it all figured out and simplified for ease of use for their users. When using MagicJack I found the sound quality very clear I had no interrupted service or anything so far everything...

    DIRECTV VS DISH

    The question I always get email is do I go DirectTV or Dish. Lets compare the 2 side by side using the respected $19.99 a month plan offered by both companies. Satellite Company DIRECTV DISH Plan Select plan 130+ channels Popular Channels Included 1 year commitment Smart Pack 55+ channels Sports Package Included 2 year commitment Bundles verizon At&T century link internet and phone Premium Channels HBO and Showtime free for first 3 months. HBO and Showtime free for first 3 months. Cost of  receiver Receivers cost between $69 and $399. Monthly $6 fee for additional receivers. Certain receivers included free under certain plans. Hopper HD DVR is included free all but one of the plans $19.99 (this one), or available for a $99 upgrade from the basic plan. $10/month whole-home DVR fee.* Cost of receiver service $10/month for first 2 years. $20/month thereafter $6/month. Additional $10/month for HD service. Basic DVR is available for Smart Pack with $7 monthly DVR Service fee.* Installation Free installation. Free installation on up to 6 TVs. When you look at what you are being offered DirectTV offers free install which is I am sure huge selling point. Even though Dish is offering less channels there throwing in sports package with DirectTV charges for with there packages. The hopper on dish is not free on 19.99 month plan but again that’s there huge selling point. Overall when you look at it yes both plans offer different things which in the end works out price and value wise about equal.

    CD Quality vs MP3 Quality

    When I go to the mall I always see kids listening to their iPhones threw there Beats head phones. I watch TV ads and they brag about the quality of the headphones. I agree beats are great and iPhone ear buds are fun but what people do not realize is that the music sounds great but not as great as it could be if you were using cd quality. CD audio is digitally sampled at 44kHz, which sampling theory says can capture any frequency up to 22kHz – the upper limit of human hearing. The volume levels are then quantized into 16-bit quantities, which can represent 65,536 discrete values for the loudness. 24-bit audio is often sampled at 96kHz or 192kHz; those 24 bits can represent 16.7m discrete loudness values. By contrast MP3s are compressed by an algorithm that throws away parts of the sound that long laborious testing determined could not actually be heard. What was very apparent is just how bad a poor-quality MP3 sounded, how good a 320kbps MP3 and CD sounded. Hi-res music is currently available but it costs more than a standard MP3 file. The other issue is size for an album which takes up around 2 and 5GB of storage space. MP3 typically take up around 5MB per track. More devices support hi-res music Samsung, Sony, LG and Apple already selling music players and smartphones capable of playing 24-bit music. Apple, Amazon and Spotify offer similar hidef-reserves that offer 320kbps but with caped data plans by phone carriers by default these options are not selected you have to go into settings and bump them up to 320 kbps. After experimenting with both CDs and MP3 and reading about the Fletcher Munson Curve an MP3 played at 320kbps is about on par with CD Quality...

    Heart rate Monitors Accuracy

    More wrist-based heart rate monitors are hitting the market, letting you gauge your fitness with a quick read of your pulse. http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2404445,00.asp But as Sharon Profis discovered after a visit to the doctor, these optical monitors may need more R&D. There may be a problem with your fitness tracker: it could be misreporting your pulse. You can find the results below, but it seems the optical sensing technology used in many of today’s new, wrist-based mobile heart rate monitors is sometimes inaccurate. That’s in comparison to time-tested EKG machines (or the heart rate monitors that emulate them), which sense the electrical impulses that trigger your heartbeats. http://www.cnet.com/news/how-accurate-are-wristband-heart-rate-monitors/
