Pressy Adds a Programmable Button via Your Smartphone Headphone Jack

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSA successful Kickstarter campaign, Pressy is a cool button you can program and use when you need it. Whether it takes a photo, turns on the flashlight, or opens up your favorite app, the button can become a helpful gadget. Pressy comes with a keychain holder so you can store when not in use. Download the app from the Play store and insert Pressy. Alert the phone its inserted, then use it for whatever you programmed the button with. For example, I have one press opening the Pressy dashboard. Two presses and it opens up one of my favorite games. Three presses and a photo is taken. Programming is simplistic at this time. I forsee a lot more options – maybe a morse code system to add more functions. Short presses vs. long presses opening new apps. It’s only available for...

Acoustic Stream is a Bluetooth Wireless Guitar and Microphone

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSImagine a device that can send your guitar signal and vocals to the amp, then give you a wireless in-ear. That is what Acoustic Stream is all about. Acoustic or electric guitar – Acoustic stream could be the bluetooth wireless alternative. Backed as a Kickstarter, Acoustic Stream was able to raise the money to continue development to this device. The Bluetooth dongle pairs with an iOS or Android device to turn into a recording unit, tuner, or push the signal to an amplifier. Best part is you don’t need a pickup on the guitar – the Acoustic Stream will become that pickup. I talked with Bob Bean – creator of the device. He has been working on this project and plans to turn this into your 4-in-1 wireless device. That means you will be able to also connect a microphone and...

Help Keep the Day in Technology History Podcast Going – Kickstarter Project

One of the shows I create has been a labor of love. For the last 5 years, I have been putting together a timeline of technology history on posting on first a weekly, then daily basis. The Day in Tech History was first called the “Week in Tech History” when started in January of 2008. In August, I knew it needed to move to a daily show. Since then, I have recorded 7 days a week – 365 days a year going into it’s fourth season. The show had many great sponsors that have helped the Day in Tech History keep running. However – especially in the last year – Sponsors have been spotty. Besides, I never liked putting sponsors in the middle of a show – however, the cost of living pretty much told me I needed to do this. But then I had a revelation. Actually,...

Help Kickstart Geekazine Special Media Feed’s Next Season

When I started going to conventions and other live events 4 years ago, I never expected having so much fun. Packing the bags with heavy equipment, hoping TSA won’t confiscate my luggage, waking up at 7 am and going to bed at 4 am does not sound like a fun job. Spending hours of time editing and posting video, while still trying to keep a literary head also doesn’t sound too much fun, either. But I do like to do it. It brings a level of accomplishment. Whether going out to BlogWorld and getting interviews from social media pros, or attending a local convention like Midwest Gaming Classic to get interviews and demonstrations. So here I am, four years later. Hundreds of videos alone – thousands in joint venture with others. Yet there are so many shows I haven’t covered yet. ComicCon in Los Angeles for 2012, SXSW...
