  • 16 MAI 2014 - Pira- 5nha Skylock Is the Bike Lock of the Future, and Its Awesome -Gizmodo Bike locks, while incredibly necessary, are way behind the times. Even the best of them will break under brute force, and then where are you? Bikeless and alone. The new Skylock, from ex-Boeing and Jawbone engineers, is about to leapfrog the competition and bring bike protection into the 21st century. It looks amazing. Skylock has Bluetooth 4.0 in it. Just like keyless unlock- ing systems youve seen on cars, you can do the same thing for you bike. Via Skylocks smartphone app, you can press a button to unlock the lock. Or set it up to have proximity detection, so as soon as you get right up next to it, it unlocks. If your phone dies, you can still unlock it via a combination (pattern) lock on the lock itself. In addition to being as strong as any U-lock on the market (or so it claims), Skylock has built-in acceler- ometers and Wi-Fi. It works like this: When you lock up your bike, you can connect the lock to a nearby Wi-Fi network. If someone starts messing with your bike, the accelerometers will detect it, and it will send a push notification to your phone via the app, so you can run out and thwart any evil-doers. You can adjust the sen- sitivity, too, so its not disturbed by a single, accidental jostle. Obviously, if there isnt a nearby network you can connect to youre out of luck (it works over Bluetooth, too, but youd have to be within 30 feet of it), but this is still an awesome feature.

  • 16 MAI 2014 - Pira- 9nha A Smartphone Turns These Fast Food Trays Into Tiny Soccer Fields -Gizmodo Decades ago McDonalds realized that food wasnt the only way to draw kids into its restaurants. Toys, playgrounds, and cartoon characters all help the cause, and now a Brazilian food chain called Giraffas has come up with a clever way to lure soccer fans into its restaurants, just in time for the 2014 FIFA World Cup. After downloading a free app, you can prop your smartphone up on its side on one end of the serving tray, allowing its front-facing camera to detect the soccer field graphics on the paper insert. Folded paper balls are torn off the edge of the placemat, and can actually be flicked at a virtual on-screen goalie, with the cameradetectingtheirmotionanddetermining whether a goal has been scored.

  • 16 MAI 2014 - Pira- 10nha BillGuard Launches Its Personal Finance App On Android And Adds Data Breach Alerts -TechCrunch Personal finance startup BillGuard has been working hard over the last several years to help its users to identify fraudulent charges on their credit and debit cards, and also to keep track of their spending on the web and on its iPhone app. Today its expanding its reach with the launch of an Android app, and also adding a new feature that will alert users when their cards have been affected by a Target-style data breach. The company, which was a Battlefield Finalist at TechCrunch Disrupt a few years ago, launched with the goal of alerting users to hidden fees that would appear on their bank or credit card statements. With the introduction of its iPhone app last year, it expanded to include so-called grey charges i.e., recurring fees that users might have agreed to but forgotten about. Last fall, it added tools to help its users track their spending and compare outflows in different categories on a month-over- month basis to give them a better idea of where their money is going.

  • 16 MAI 2014 - Pira- 11nha Never Forget a Photoshop Shortcut Again With This Interac- tive App - To use Photoshop like a pro, you need to know your keyboard shortcutsbut with so many to remember, you can easily feel more rookie than ever. This interactive app should help you out, by telling you in a jiffy which keys will help you get to work. Gizmodo Application Shortcut Mapper was created by Waldo Bronchart, and its an interactive web app designed to be a visual shortcuts explorer for popular applications. So far, it caters for Photoshop, Lightroom and Blender. The keyboard layout is shown as it would be when you open the program, telling you what keys will help you out. But it gets better: press another key, like Shift or Space, and the display changes to tell you what each key will now do. Its all color-coded, too, so you know which key brings about what change when youve chased down a particular keyboard rabbit hole. Lire le reste de larticle --> ici
  • 16 MAI 2014 - Pira- 12nha Foursquares Swarm And The Rise Of The Invisible App - Swarm is a new app from Foursquare out today that chisels off the check-in and proximity features of the main app and places them in a sparse, focus-driven new home. The app is nicely done, though it will be of most use to those in dense urban areas with lots of friends. TechCrunch The underlying mechanics of Swarm are whats really interesting here and more importantly what it says about the next generation of apps youll be using on your smartphone. Theresafundamentalshiftinthewaythatweuseappsunderway, and the symptoms are all over the map. From a deeper, more thoughtful approach to push notifications to the breaking apart of large, unwieldy apps into smaller more focused components.
