If you’re an active iPhone user, chances are you’re likely running low on storage space, particularly if you shoot lots of hi-res pictures and high-def video. We know of course, that iPhone memory is not expandable – no card slots for extra storage. The solution might just be Leef iBridge 3.0 Mobile Memory. It’s a nifty gadget that plugs directly into your iOS device’s Lightning port that allows you to expand your memory and working in conjunction with its companion app gives you in part the functionality of a mini external drive – and more.

Some people put cases on their phones, so often they’re pretty indifferent to colour. Others on the other hand are more particular. So for those of you who may be interested in a Google Pixel and Quite Black is not your thing and Very Silver is a little too typical, you’ll be happy to know that Google has just added a limited edition model, available for preorder in Canada that’s Really Blue. Yes, really! Read more…at Canoe Tech Blog.
I remember long ago, as a child, not feeling well; the first thing Mom did was check my forehead for a possible fever and then force that awful glass thermometer which was never that accurate anyway, under my tongue. There has certainly been progress in this area over the years with technological advances. In fact, the new FLO Smart Thermometer by Zeraph can take temperature readings without entering or even touching any part of the body. Read more…Full review at Canoe Tech Blog.
I have to admit it’s been a while since I reviewed or regularly used a traditional canister vacuum. However, I can remember eons ago, not so fondly mind you, how often the darned thing tipped over and the hose became twisted and tangled. I had no choice but to stop, put it up right and untangle myself. So it piqued my curiosity when I heard that Dyson had developed a new Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal vacuum which they said self-rights itself when toppled.
Remember the Weebles?
I have to admit, at first, I had an immediate flashback to the 70s. The TV commercial forever ingrained in my brain and the slogan, “Weebles wobble but they don’t fall down.” Anyone old enough to remember? If not, I’m sure it’s on YouTube.
Apparently, I’m told, the team at Dyson had the same experience when founder James Dyson really put his engineering team to task to come up with a solution for the toppling canister. Read more…Full review at CanoeTech Blog.
One would rarely think of describing a Bluetooth speaker as having a luxurious feminine style, but when you look at the Braven Lux you just may smile and nod your head in agreement. In fact if you come across a lady holding one in her hand you might mistakenly take it for a clutch purse.
Created by accessory maker Braven, the LUX wireless speaker is part of a limited edition for the Braven Design Series, so I’m sure the purse look was created rather by design and not pure by accident. Read Full Review at G4TV Canada.
Grabbing mobile video is pretty easy these days, but to really capture both high quality video and audio quickly and easily on the go, can be a little more cumbersome. This is where the new IK Multimedia iKlip A/V comes in. It’s the first all-in-one broadcast smart mount designed to do both by integrating an ergonomic handle, a mic pre-amp and wireless support into one handheld gadget.
Designed in Italy with guidance from mobile broadcasters and field reporting professionals, iKlip A/V features a mounting platform consisting of a slightly curved metal bar. In the middle is a standard UNC ¼” threaded camera mount with thumb wheel. There’s also a removable rubber reinforced double spring-loaded expandable clamp that allows you to securely attach any 3.5”-6″ iPhone, iPod touch or Android smartphone to it.

It comes in the form of a kit that consists of a clear spray solution and an anti-microbial 6″ x 6″ orange microfibre cloth. There’s no alcohol or ammonia in the solution, which can be harmful to the coatings on some screens, particularly those like the oleophobic coating found on the iPhone.
Screens like the iPhone are designed for capacitive touch. This means that it relies on the ever-minute electrical particles found in the human finger that makes touchscreens possible. That’s why touchscreens don’t really work if you’re wearing regular gloves.
If you’re like many of us, you often end up throwing away a little too much food because it goes bad before you get a chance to consume it. To give extended life to your food Enlifery, a home electronics designer, created Ankomn Savior, a non-electric food vacuum sealed container the company claims is the most powerful one ever built.
By creating a proper vacuum, removing air and excess humidity, the company says will allow food – depending on what it is will last 8x longer maintaining its flavour and taste, eliminating unnecessary waste and saving you some of that hard earned cash. Read full review at CanoeTech Blog.
Accessing your computer or mobile device while on stage for artists or presenters can often be a pain. This is especially true if your hands are full and all you want to do is turn a page on your sheet music, change a setlist or move through a presentation. This is where the new iRig BlueTurn comes in. It’s a compact wireless page turning gadget that utilizes your foot rather than your hand.
Created by IK Multimedia and made in Italy, iRig BlueTurn is a simple yet clever little BlueTooth enabled box. It’s designed to sit on the floor with two soft touch illuminated buttons positioned side-by-side to execute commands from one of three preset modes: Arrow up/down, Page up/down or Arrow left/right that you can configure upon power-up. In some apps, receiving these commands may allow control of other functions such as scrolling and start/stop functionality in certain modes depending on how the app interprets the standardized commands.

When you hear Ventie, the first thing that comes to mind is a mega cup of Starbucks coffee. But this Ventie has a slightly different spelling and has nothing to do with the caffeine fix; what it can do is make your smartphone hands-free by giving you the option to easily mount it to the air vent in your car.
The Ventie Mount by Satechi is a clever little accessory. It has a spring-loaded head designed to grip any smartphone that measures between two and three and one-half inches wide. It could also be rotated to accommodate a number of GPS models or even your smartphone if you prefer to orient it in landscape mode.
In fact, the grip head is mounted using a ball-and-socket joint and swivel arm system giving you some decent flexibility in positioning the mount to give you the optimal viewing angle from your driver’s seat. Read more…at Canoe Tech Blog.
