เสาร์, 05/02/2015 - 02:45

Usher Syndrome Advocate Molly Watt recently wrote about her experience with the new Apple Watch. Considering she was born deaf and is legally blind, you would think the tiny touch screen would be off limits for her. However, her experience shows that smartwatches may be more useful than some folks have imagined, especially for the deaf community. […]

A few days ago a company called Fonkraft unveiled a new design for a modular smartphone platform and launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise $50,000 to turn the concept into reality. That struck me as a surprisingly small amount of money for such an ambitious project… and apparently I wasn’t the only one who was […]

Microsoft buys digital pen tech from N-trig, maker of the Surface Pen

ศุกร์, 05/01/2015 - 23:09

There are (at least) two things that set Microsoft’s Surface tablets apart from Apple’s iPads and most Android tablets. First, they run Windows. Second, they can work with an optional Surface Pen which lets you write, draw, or hover over icons, text, or other items as if you were using a mouse. Microsoft designs its […]
