Gibson Memory Cable Will Capture Your Jams For Posterity

gibson_memory_cable

Ever been screwing around with a guitar, pumping out some jams for the heck of it, and realize that last couple of licks were genius? But then you have no idea what you did and they’re gone forever? Yeah, never happened to us because we don’t play guitar, but it’s a plausible scenario that makes the Gibson Memory Cable a really interesting product for any serious guitarists out there. It’s integrated directly into the cable, and records everything you play for up to 13 hours, directly to an SD card. Think of it as an audio dashcam. It’ll be available May 15th for an undisclosed sum.

Say Goodbye To Vertical Videos Forever With Horizon

horizon

Ever read the comments on Reddit whenever some schmo shoots a video with the phone held vertically? Not pretty, right? Even worse is when they start holding the phone vertically, realize their mistake and rotate sideways… Then all you have is a video that forces you to tilt your head 90 degrees in order to watch. It’s stupid. The Horizon app promises to fix these problems forever. Using the phone’s accelerometer, you’re presented with an always-horizontal window that appears even when you’re holding your phone upright. It serves to remind you that the phone is in the “wrong” orientation, and also serves as the viewfinder. Yes, the shooting area will be smaller if you keep shooting while the phone is upright, but it will resize dynamically if you tilt. Actually, no matter what angle you’re pointing the device, the video stays horizontal.

There are multiple aspect ratios to pick from and even filters to play around with. It’s unfortunately iOS only at the moment and it’ll cost you all of $1.

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.”
