Quitbit, un briquet connecté pour suivre sa consommation tabagique-Quitbit est un briquet connecté qui permet de suivre et de mieux contrôler sa consommation de cigarettes pour aboutir progressivement à un sevrage tabagique en douceur.
Connected-ObjectsDepuis des années, le tabac est responsable de nombreux décès
dans le monde. Pour pallier ce problème et traiter cette addiction,
des solutions ont vu le jour à l’image des patchs, des cigarettes
light, des chewing gums à la nicotine ou plus récemment de la
cigarette électronique. D’ailleurs, cette dernière est maintenant
connectée à notre smartphone pour suivre en temps réel sa
consommation. En matière de cigarettes connectées, citons
notamment Smokio ou encore MyVaps. Cependant, un nouvel
acteur fait son entrée sur le marché grâce à une idée originale
: un briquet connecté. Au lieu de connecter la cigarette,
Quitbit connecte l’accessoire indispensable à tous les fumeurs
Never Forget a Photoshop Shortcut Again With This Interac-tive App-To use Photoshop like a pro, you need to know your keyboard shortcuts—but 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.
GizmodoApplication Shortcut Mapper was created by Waldo Bronchart, and it’s 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. It’s all color-coded, too, so you know which key brings
about what change when you’ve chased down a particular keyboard rabbit hole.
Foursquare’s 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.
TechCrunchThe underlying mechanics of Swarm are what’s really interesting
here — and more importantly what it says about the next
generation of apps you’ll be using on your smartphone.
There’s a fundamental shift in the way that we use apps underway,
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.
The shift we’re seeing will be the third strata of user interaction
since the iPhone popularized the mobile app in a major way.
The initial offerings for the iPhone and then Android devices
adhered fairly closely to the ‘information appliance’ model. Using
software, you transformed your phone into a mostly mono-
purpose device just like it said on the tin. Now it’s a phone. Now
The startup emerged at a time when the industry was questioning whether or not
Facebook commerce, or “f-commerce,” as some had abbreviated it, was actually
worthwhile. Soldsie, which first launched in May 2012, found that Facebook
commerce could work, when it wasn’t just some other tab for users to click into,
but could instead leverage the social activities already taking place across these
retailers’, sellers’ and businesses’ Facebook profile pages.
On Facebook, sellers were sharing photos of their items for sale, which fans would
then comment on, like and re-share. Soldsie then added another layer to that ongoing
activity – allowing visitors to comment “SOLD” in order to make a purchase.
Consumers would only have to register one time with the Soldsie application, which
allowed the business to access their personal data, including their email address. On
the backend, Soldsie provides an interface for managing the invoicing process, with
tools for tracking sales, invoices, inventory and more.
