Foldio 2 Lets You Take Studio-Quality Pics on the Go

Foldio 2 Pop-Up Studio

These days, the image quality that you can get with some smartphones can rival those of images taken with an actual camera. That said, it doesn’t come as much of a surprise that people use smartphones to take pictures of stuff they’re featuring on their blog or selling online. The Orange Monkie team knows this, which prompted them to come up with the Foldio last year.

This time, they’re back with Foldio 2– an upgraded version of the mobile studio that’s twice the size of its predecessor. It comes with three backdrops and is lit by dual LED strips which provide more-than-adequate lighting for your shoot.

Pickup Power

Pickup Power

Just like that, our lives are now (sort of) run by mobiles. Smartphones, tablets, smart watches, music players… each one plays a part in your daily life, whether it’s for work or for play. However, each one is just as useful as a paper weight when it’s out of juice. That’s where Pickup Power comes into play.

It’s a power strip with three AC outlets plus a portable, removable battery that you can take and go to charge your device while you’re on the go. It’s available with either a 4,000 or 6,000 mAH battery.

iPhone 6 Gold

The most blinged-out phone in the market has to be the iPhone. Those with money to burn have commissioned custom iPhones time and time again, adding jewels and crystals and even coating it in precious metals. The iPhone 6 is no exception, as a gold-plated custom version of the phone is now on sale.

Gold & Co., is offering a 24-karat version of the newly-released iPhone 6, and word on the street is that big-name celebrities, athletes (including Floyd Mayweather Jr.), and royalty (some UAE royal family members) are interested in owning one. The basic gold-plated version is priced at $50,000, while the bejeweled ones can go up at $130,000.

All that for a phone with an upgraded version coming in a few quarters or so? Whoa!

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.

‘Ignore No More’ App Gives You the Power to Lock Phones Remotely

Ignore No More App1

 

Nobody likes being ignored, especially mothers. Unfortunately, kids (and even hubbies) these days ignore parents or their SOs for one reason or the other. Sometimes, it’s understandable. Other times, it causes undue panic because one party might assume that the other is in trouble. With this premise, Sharon Standifird created Ignore No More.

It’s an app that locks a paired device at the push of a button. The app has to be installed on both “parent” and “child” devices in order for it to work. (In some cases, that could be “wife” and “husband” or “girlfriend” and “boyfriend.)
