Just take a moment and wonder at the marvel of the technology in your hand, if you happen to own a smart phone. Think about it, you have a tiny computer in your hand that has access to the web, bluetooth, GPS, texting, calling, wifi and in some cases an HD camera. That is truly amazing and would have been unheard of just ten years ago. But now that we have these little handheld wonder-gadgets, there are plenty of companies out there taking advantage of the technology available. Here are some of the oddest attachments that you may have never heard of.
It’s starting to get really warm outside, and usually that means more outside activities with the best android phone apps out there! Personally I have taken up hiking every other weekend, and living in Pennsylvania I have plenty of places to go. But I had a thought while out on my latest hike… are there apps for my phone to make a hike easier, or at least, help me find more trails I may not know about? What if the worst comes to pass and I get lost? What apps can help fellow hikers or campers out there to stay safe and have fun?
Many of us burn through one gallon of gas, easily, every day. I only drive a short distance, but I know that every two weeks I have to fill up my tank, leaving me about one gallon a day. Many of us also plug our cell phones into a car charger when we go on long trips. But how long could you potentially charge a cell phone with just the power from one gallon of gasoline?
We here at TheBlueDot love taking in used cell phones and putting them in another happy customers hands, but what about tablets? As tablets grow in popularity, thanks in part to the iPad and growing Android Tablet market, so do demands on newer and better technology. It seems new tablets are coming out just as quickly as new phones do, which can cause a bit of a headache for those unaccustomed to a device at such a price point being replaced so easily. So what can you do? The same thing you do with cell phones of course!
This kind of service has been in the works for some time, and has been in demand for even longer. Since text and GPS has been a normal feature on phones people have wanted a way to text 911 to both ask for help and to give the phones exact location to get help there quicker. Well, it seems Verizon is stepping up their game in helping to provide this service for anyone and everyone.
