Listeners:

Seasons Greetings from Canada. I have been a faithful listener to the podcast for a long time and would like to pose a question to the team. Who has tried the Tile Bluetooth tracker and what are your thoughts of the practicalities of the network of users helping you find, your keys for example? What daily use scenarios have you come up against? The Galaxy S7 Edge is my daily driver. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks for doing what you do. You run one of my top podcasts.

Albert Wilcox

Jay: I really like it – I actually have two (one on my house keys and another on my car keys). I’ve not had to use them ‘in anger’ but during my review I found everything worked as it should. The GPS is pretty accurate and I do like the ‘community search’ idea. It’s kinda like insurance, it’s always good to know it’s there but hope you don’t have to use it.

Griffin Powerdock 5 Unboxing

image26The Powerdock 5 is a device that only the most spoiled or organised will desire. It’s a costly accessory that is necessary for some. Powerdocks are a personal favourite of mine as, when done right, they can really enhance a desk or night stand whilst keep all your devices in the one place and full of juice.

Features:

Store and charge 5 iPads, iPhones or iPod touches simultaneously
Space-saving design for your countertop
Cables not included
Input: 100-240 V AC (Comes with UK and EU power cords)
Output: 10 watts (5 volts DC @ 2.1 amps) for each charging bay
Accommodates iPad tablets in their cases

You can pick one up from Amazon for around £60.

Or from Griffin’s official website.

THINKWARE has been awarded CES 2017 innovation award

THINKWARE’s CEO, Heung Bok Lee, announces today that global dash cam brand “THINKWARE DASH CAM” has received the “2017 Innovation Award” in the car audio/video category for the “DASH CAM 5800 Air”, from the world-renowned Consumer Electronics Show (CES). This has been the second consecutive year that THINKWARE has received the prestigious CES innovation award; reserved for only the best products in each category.

The THINKWARE DASH CAM F800 Air is the first model to feature a design compatible with IOT (Internet of things) technology for the realisation of a completely ‘Connected Car.’ The F800 Air model’s IOT connection gives drivers complete peace of mind with the ‘Emergency Alert’ feature. It sends location and status information via text message to your pre-selected emergency contacts when the system detects a crash, rollover or the SOS button is activated. It also has the ‘Parking Incident Notifications’ function, which, in real time, sends alerts if your vehicle is hit while parked, even subtle impacts such as door dings or a door closing. Furthermore, with THINKWARE’s patented LBS (Location Base Service) technology, all drivers will soon benefit from ‘Geo Fencing’, an alert system which informs you if your vehicle enters or leaves a designated area along with the ‘Driving Report Service’ a feature that analyses driving patterns of its drivers to support safe driving.

In addition to the innovative technologies, the aesthetics of the F800 Air has been designed with an attractive and modern look with a slim frame design, aluminium materials for the round camera module, and an overall ‘U’ shaped body that integrates the entire design.

The F800 Air’s breakthrough innovations and bold designs certainly helped it achieve the CES 2017 innovation award.  The dash cam is currently in its final stage of development and is scheduled for a global launch next year.

THINKWARE stated, “With the innovative “connected car” technologies, the dash cam will take on an important role in providing both driver convenience and safety and the continued evolution of the capabilities of the dash cam seem boundless with IOT.”

This year will be THINKWARE’s 6th consecutive presence at CES 2017, reinforcing their global position as the world’s top dash cam company in global sales and market influence.  Last September, THINKWARE established their Chinese branch along with a ‘premium offline store’ in the city of Simchun to expand their B2B market in China.  Also, in Singapore, THINKWARE has been offered sales partnership programmes at Toyota dealerships and at branches of car accessory brand, Autobac. Additionally, with the success of their partnership with BEST BUY distribution channels in the United States, THINKWARE plans to continue their sales expansion into Europe, South America, and other Asian countries and is expecting to more than double 2016 sales figures.

The CES 2017 Innovation award is awarded for outstanding design and technology through evaluation by the CEA (Consumer Electronics Association) and IDSA at CES (Consumer Electronics Show), one of the world’s top 3 recognised technology exhibitions.
