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.)

TowlHub Holds Paper Towels, Charges Phones

Towlhub

 

It’s a towel holder, it’s a charging hub–no, it’s the TowlHub and it’s actually both. Everyone needs a holder for paper towels because it’s just inconvenient to use them without one. At the same time, people use their mobile devices so much that they need to be recharged every day (or a couple of times a day, if they’re really used that much.)

So presto: instead of being just one or the other, the TowlHub combines both so you can make the most out of your space and your towel holder. Win-win.

The TowlHub retails for $49.99.

One More Thing Your Phone Can Do: iPhone Laser Pointer

iPhone LAser Pointer

 

What can you do with your iPhone? Or better yet, the question should read: what can’t you do with it? First and foremost, it’s obviously a phone. Then it spins off into a camera, an audio and video recorder, a note pad, an organizer, a fitness tracker, a video game console, a music player, a map, and so on and so forth.

The capabilities of most smartphones are extended further with accessories like the iPin iPhone laser pointer. Dubbed as the “world’s smallest laser pointer,” the iPin fits right into the iPhone’s 3.5mm earphone jack. The entire thing weighs less than a gram and is powered by your phone, so there’s no need to replace batteries at all. The iPin also has an on/off switch so you don’t have to take it out when you want to use your phone in the middle of presentations.

It’s available online for $39.99.
