All You Need for Continuum

What is Continuum? (Video)

One of Windows Phone 10’s really great features that sets it apart from the other mobile operating systems is the new Continuum feature. This feature allows you to plug-in to a monitor or a TV via a separate dock accessory, HDMI, or Miracast dongle (to wirelessly cast it) to get a full-blown version of Windows 10 running from the phone. It’s pretty simple to set up, but unfortunately, it isn’t quite that simple. Nor is it that easy to understand what it can and cannot actually do so I figured I’d put together this video showing what Continuum is and how you can …

Project Fi

What is Project Fi & Why It’s Interesting

It was really only a matter of time, right? Having the world’s most popular website then launching in beta a program for super fast internet called Google Fiber, and having one of the most popular mobile operating systems in the world, only makes sense to then launch a wireless provider. Project Fi is Google’s relatively new wireless carrier that aims to simplify billing and create a network that can seamlessly use LTE data as well as utilizing Wifi for service. How Project Fi Works When using the Project Fi SIM card that comes in the mail after you apply for …

Keurig Kold

How the Keurig Kold Works (Video)

The Keurig Kold took Keurig about 5 years to bring to market. 5 years. From the people that dominated the single serving hot beverage market for so long and a cold beverage system seeming like a next logical step, why did it take so long? The usual suspects of carbonated, cold beverage drink makers all have CO2 canisters that need to be refilled at authorized dealers in order to inject that bubbly goodness into your drinks. Keurig wasn’t having any of that nonsense. They figured it was better for them to invent an entirely new method for getting the carbonation …

It’s that time again. A new iPhone has been released and that means two things —it’s time to sell your current iPhone to get some money to help pay for the new one, or it’s a good time to look on Craigslist and eBay for the older models that have just dropped significantly in price. For those of you looking to do the latter, there are a few things you absolutely need to know before you get started to save yourself a potential hundreds of dollars worth of headache. Check for a Clean ESN / IMEI The first thing to …

Everything You Need to Know About Google’s OnHub

Recently, Google announced it’s most recent tech innovation –Google OnHub. But this time the newest must-have device isn’t a new phone, or app, or other such spotlight-hogging device. Nope, it’s a router. The backstage run-crew of your technology dependent life. And you know what? It’s about time. With all the constant updates, new features, and brilliant advances of the last few years, routers have stayed unimpressively the same –same clunky design, same on-again-off-again signal, same unimaginably long password of gibberish letters and numbers, same pain-in-the-butt hunk of junk. So, good for you, Google, trying to bring the ancient router up …
