What is the Motorola Skip?

The Motorola Skip is a small felt-covered device that clips itself to a piece of your clothing such as a shirt sleeve or belt via a magnet that holds it in place. When the rear of your smartphone is tapped onto it (or brought close enough), it will unlock the device (once paired).

How does it unlock my device?

It uses Near-Field Communication, more commonly known as NFC. NFC is built into a lot of smartphones and has been the norm for around 2 years now. When the sensor picks up the connection, it is programmed to unlock your device (surpassing the password entry). Continue reading

Guest post written by Phil Taylor:

In the 1980’s cable television spread like a technological weed until everyone felt they had to have it. A few free, airborne terrestrial channels were no longer enough. With cable television came choices and with those choices came opportunistic businesses that promised to deliver us the best broadcast entertainment possible, at a price. When the cable companies had a monopoly on delivering us entertainment we had no choice but to pay their ransom. We now have choices, but the question is, are you bold enough to really do it? Are you ready to cut the cable and venture out into that wild wi-fi world?

Guest post written by Subane Abdi:

Google Glass… What exactly is Google Glass?

Well, this topic has been circulating the net for the best part of two years, ever since testing began in the spring of 2012. Google Glass is essentially wearable tech…? I know right, wearable tech, we have indeed advanced that far (I am, for the purpose of this article, ignoring smart watches, they’re completely different but I won’t ponder on that). This particular wearable tech comes in the form of glasses that fit snuggly where glasses ought to be… I assume you know where that is.

This article will cover some basic facts concerning the Google Glass, contain some very bias viewpoints of my own and round off by asking YOU the reader, where you stand on this quite fashionably sassy looking accessory. Continue reading

Apple iPhone 6 Pictures Leaked

Since I reported the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 pictures, it’s only fair I do the same for the iPhone 6.logo-apple_01

These pictures were reported by The Independent and photos are taken from TechRadar.

I claim no ownership of these pictures.

Anyway, on to the iPhone, it does look a tad slimmer and smoother… almost as slick as it could ever look. It’ll be interesting to see what the specs are like.

Full thoughts soon to come.

Check out the leaked pictures below: Continue reading

These are the official leaked images and are most likely the final version so check them out below:

Predicting Where Technology Will Be In 10 Years

Information Technology Concept

Hi everyone, you had this week’s guest post a tad early so I felt I should write something myself today.

Sometime last year, I wrote an article called “Where Technology will be in 20 years“. This was extremely popular and is actually my second highest viewed post of all time on The EssWhyDee Blog with a whopping 249 views as of when I started writing this post right here. So I thought I might as well write an updated version of this and see how far technology will go and where I think it’ll be at in 10 years time.

Read this article before continuing so you know what I wrote last year “Where Technology will be in 20 years“…
