Is the MyID with QR Code the MedicAlert Bracelet for the 21st Century?

image

You're probably familiar with those MedicAlert bracelets. If you're not, at least it's good to know that the EMT's, doctors, nurses, and other first responders are. Those are the metal bracelets that list any allergies or medical conditions a person might have so they can quickly and appropriately perform first aid. For example, my father-in-law's bracelet said he had a pacemaker.

Where the Heck can I find a Decent Looking iPhone Case?

Where the Heck can I find a Decent Looking iPhone Case?

There's nothing like a good old fashion understatement to undermine the visceral reaction and emotional content of a statement. Never the less, I will lead with the proverbial understatement: Finding a good iPhone case is a challenge!
Some would disagree (another gross understatement 1), but the Iphone remains the iconic symbolence of the modern era and the most popular mobile amongst the hip, chic, happening, artistic, and the style conscious (as Apple products have been for decades). From the beautiful UI of iOS 8 to the thoughtful physical design of the hardware (though the iPhone 6 was quite a big step backward in that regard) the design remains iconic. People eagerly wait for the launch of the new models and are ready to pay almost any price for it.

Wellograph Tries to Find a Niche Between Fitness Band and Smart Watch

image

There has never been a better time for fans of smart watches and fitness bands. The Apple Watch validates the market, yet has enough shortcomings that it leaves room for competitors. I've worn a Pebble since they were available and I appreciate many of the features it offers, but it's getting a little long in the tooth. It doesn't offer any of the health sensors that are so popular these days.



Apple's Very Smart Watch

The smartwatch. Manufacturers have been trying to deliver on the promise of a full-featured wrist gadget for years. The pitfalls are plentiful: Battery Life. Charging. Water Resistance. Rugged Display. Comfort. Fashion. Features and interface. Price. With the Apple Watch, Tim Cook and Jony Ive’s team have addressed almost all of these areas of concern with Apple’s traditional attention to detail.
