Cable Labels: Mixed-Up Cables No More

Cable Labels

 

Tired of mixing up cables and turning on the switch to another line when you meant to switch on the one beside it? Well, this first-world problem is solved with these Cable Labels. As its name implies, these are labels that are meant to be attached to your cables for easy identification. Just write down what the cable connects to (for example, your TV, printer, speaker, etc.) and tack it onto the corresponding cable. Easy peasy.

The Cable Labels are available online for £7.50 (or about $12+.)

Bleep Smart Cable Charges Your Phone, Backs Up Your Data

Bleep

People mourn for more than just their phones when they lose them. In fact, most are more worried about the data on their phones rather than the actual devices. Tel Aviv-based Company Musers is well aware of this fact, so they’ve come up with Bleep. It’s a smart cable that backs up your phone’s data while you’re charging it so you’re covered in case you lose your phone or damage it beyond repair. It also protects you against hardware crashes, which sometimes happen when you least expect it.

Bleep can back up your messages, photos, music, videos, contacts, calendar, and app history, among other things. It’s also designed to work with its companion app which is password-protected for your data’s security.

Donor Cable Bracelets Lets You Share Power to Those In Need

Donor Cable

So your phone’s running low on power and you forgot to bring your cable or charger (or both) with you. You’re in the middle of typing out an email for your boss or getting the hang of the game that everyone at your office is playing. Whatever it is you’re doing, you’re desperate for power. Unfortunately, nobody around you has a charger on them either. If only there were some way you could bum some power off of their phones…

Well, if you had the Donor Cable, then that’s exactly what you can do. It was distributed byAzerbaijani cellular network Nar Mobile to anyone who bought an Android phone. It starts out as a bracelet but unfolds to turn into a cable that allows you to connect your phone to someone else’s for battery power transfer.

Charge, Connect and Locate Your Smartphone Plus Store Stuff with GOkey

GoKey

So you’re thinking of going on a trip. Your phone might be sleek and compact, but its accessories aren’t. You’ve got an external memory card to store extra stuff, a locator that comes with a sticker and a remote in case you lose your phone, plus a charger completer with its cord to power up your phone when it’s running low on juice. You might as well get a bag to store all this stuff…or you could skip everything and just get the GOkey instead.

The GOkey is a compact device that functions as all of the above, minus the bulk. It fits easily into your keyring so you won’t have to think twice about it, since you wouldn’t leave the house without your keys now, would you?

Cable Companies Get the Honest Trailer Treatment–And It Ain’t Pretty

The deceit begins almost right after you sign the contract and make your first payment to your cable company. “When will the technician come to set things up?”, you might ask. “Oh, they’ll probably drop by your house tomorrow,” the cable rep might respond.

Three days later and the cable guy is still a no-show. You’ll be left waiting at the door with no cable, no Internet, and no more patience. Thus begins the hate-hate relationship that you’ll have with your current cable company and with the one after that, because contrary to how things might appear–all cable companies are the same.

Check out the hilarious parody above that speaks the absolute truth about cable companies.

Boxee TV Lets You DVR With No Limits

The Boxee Box brought with it lots of hype, but it’s a hard world out there for a media streamer. So the company is switching tacks and trying to enter the DVR market with an interesting offering: unlimited storage on the cloud. Most DVRs come with hard drives and after a few months of rigorous recording, you’re likely to start feeling a little squeezed. Not so with Boxee TV, which uploads everything you decide to keep, so you can pretty much record it all! And you’re then free to watch it back from any device that has access to the Internet. It has a dual tuner that allows it to display TV from over-the-air signals and basic unencrypted cable, and you’re able to record one show while watching another.

The service costs $15 a month, and will be “rolling out to 8 of the top TV markets in the US: New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, Philadelphia and D.C. Additional markets later in 2013.”
