Playing Ruzzle is an amazing way to spend one’s time, but did you know there are apps that can help you be a more efficient person? It’s true. Especially when it comes to travel which can be overwhelming and make you feel discombobulated. Here are 5 travel apps that you should immediately download on your Dell inspiron laptop with inspiron 1520 extended life battery.
1. Oanda Currency Converter
Currency rates (and math) are very confusing. This app does all the work (and math) for you while keeping up with the regularly changing rates. Remember when francs still existed?
This is the only app you need to check rates on flights, car rentals and hotels. I promise.
3. Free WiFi Finder
Whether you’re online or off, this app gives you direction to free WiFi spots across the globe. And yes, the whole world has WiFi access now, even communities in Paraguay that don’t have garbage pick-up.
4. WhatsApp Messenger
If you don’t have an international phone plan (who in America does?) then download this app so you can text for free using WiFi when you’re abroad. OMG and WTF and all that.
5. iFly Pro
This app has in-terminal navigation for over 700 commercial airports. A lifesaver if your flights delayed and you want to know if you’ll have to run all the way through O’Hare to catch your connecting flight, or if you can just gently sprint.

Consumer Electronics Show (better known as CES), the ultimate showcase for the industry’s hottest new gadgets ended last week in Las Vegas. Scoured through some popular listings and I suppose the followings are some of the gadgets that will shape the consumer electronics world in 2013:
1. Samsung 85-Inch Ultra HD TV
Samsung 85″ Ultra HD or “4K TVs” offers 4 times the resolution of regular HD TVs. This monster is the biggest Ultra HD TV ever made, set in a tiltable metal frame for a sleek floating effect.
2. Samsung Youm
Flexible screens took centre stage at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show. OLED technology means that displays, whether they’re built into phones or TVs, can now be paper-thin and bendable.
3. HAPIfork smart fork
The HAPIfork contains a number of sensors that record exactly how quickly and how much you’re eating. Eat too fast and the fork vibrates to warn you to slow down. It also counts exactly how many forkfuls you’re shovelling in. It’s unclear though, if it’s an effective method of losing weight.
4. Oculus Rift
This virtual reality headset creates a completely immersive 3D world, so the wearer feels like they can simply step into it and touch their surroundings. Pretty interesting.
5. Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon PC
This could be classified into a new class of gadget, probably Table PC. It is touchscreen, 27-inch and can be laid flat horizontally so that several people can interact with it in table mode. Multiple users can share images round a table, read newspapers or play games. It comes with HP Elitebook 8530w Battery.
6. Nvidia Project Shield
This is a handheld Android-based gaming console for hardcore PC gamers. The Shield will stream your games from your PC via your Wi-Fi network and play them on its five-inch screen, providing you with high-end gaming on something that you can carry around with you.
7. Seagate Wireless Plus
The Seagate Wireless Plus 1TB WiFi/USB external hard drive is a standard external USB 3.0 HDD with a built-in WiFi adapter for multiple WiFi-enabled device connections. There is no need for any sort of internet connectivity. The end result is wireless data streaming of movies, photos, files and music.

The versatile IdeaPad Yoga 13 Ultrabook™ was named after the ancient Hindu method that brings tranquility and well-being from a series of physical postures—a lofty goal for a convertible tablet. But, after playing around with the Yoga 13, I realized that the device and yoga practitioners have more in common than you’d think.
The screen on the Yoga 13 flips a complete 360 degrees into four different modes for better productivity as either a standard laptop, a traditional tablet, a stand position which is perfect for watching movies on an airplane table tray, or tent mode—just to show off. A hatha yogini can do nearly 200 poses, including inversion headstands.
PCMag clocks the Yoga 13 with five full hours of battery life. Other reviewers have found the LENOVO ThinkPad T410 Battery lasts as long as six hours. Hibernation mode doesn’t take much power, extending the time you can keep the machine not plugged in. From hibernation, InstantResume takes the Yoga 13 out of sleep mode in one second. Yoga instructor Rod Stryker tells Yoga Journal that “yoga can help you unlock your life-force to feel energized all day.”
10-finger multitouch touchscreen technology makes the Yoga 13 extra sensitive to a user’s touch. Or, use the webcam as an input device, which allows you to command the machine with a hand gesture. On the yoga side, some Western doctors recommend hand yoga to patients suffering from arthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome.
OneKey Rescue is a system in the hard drive that is designed to instantly recover user’s operating system via a NOVO button, in case of an emergency, to backup or restore for recovery. Certified Yoga Therapist, Surya Kolpakov, recommends Bow pose to improve the body’s immunity and Down Dog for staving off colds.
Lenovo Cloud storage offers a common user interface with WIndows 7 and Android while giving secure and simple device support. You can back-up, synchronize, and share 5GB of free data that can be accessed from any device, anywhere via email or social networks. A regular yoga practice improves memory and brain performance, keeping your body’s “cloud” running effectively.
The IdeaPad Yoga 13 Ultrabook™ starts at $999. One year worth of yoga classes at Bikram Yoga Lower East Side costs $1400. Namaste.

I thought it would be interesting to kick off a series where each of our columnists would share the top 5 technologies that changed and profoundly impacted our lives, along with the reasons why. Technology has shaped and is shaping many different generations in different ways and will continue to do so for long periods of time. I know I always enjoy listening to others tell stories about the products that truly impacted them for the better and some of the reasons why. So here are the ones that shaped my life up to this point.
Nintendo Entertainment System (NES)
That’s right the very first EPIC NES. It was 1985 when the NES came into my house. I was instantly the coolest kid on the entire block. My father being one of the first analysts in the computer industry developed a good relationship with Nintendo so he got to bring one of the first units home.
Many of you can relate to your first gaming experience, whether it be with the Commodore, Atari, NES or even the Playstation or XBOX. It was mesmerizing, captivating and seriously addicting. I couldn’t get enough, the escape that video games presents or more immersive and emotional that books or movies could ever be, for me at least. It also most likely contributed to my ADD.
Now with the addition of things like Kinect and the Wii, families are getting together and playing immersive games together. For me it all started with the original NES.
DIR/W. Ah the memories of DOS. The PS/2 was the first computer I remember using at length. We had many others before it in our home but I simply don’t remember them as well. I learned to use DOS on the PS/2 which instantly made me the go to for tech support in computer lab in the 5th grade.
Computers and computing are a big part of many of our lives. I highlight this one because it was the one I spent the most time with at a young age and the one much of my computing foundation was grounded on.
Compaq iPaq 3630 W/ PCMCIA sleeve and Metricom Ricochet Wireless Card
I had a difficult time choosing between the iPaq and the first Palm Pilot. I was at the Palm Pilot launch event when Jeff Hawkins first publicly demonstrated the device. In fact my dad took me out of school to attend the event because he knew how significant it would be for the industry. I remember thinking at the time how groundbreaking this pocket computer was. The primary reason I chose the iPaq over the Palm Pilot was because of the Metricom wireless card adapter sleeve. Although the original Palm Pilot represented a vision for a true pocket computer, the iPaq with the Metricom Ricochet Wireless card brought me the Internet in my pocket for the fist time and that was what gave me my inflection point.
Now you may be wondering why I chose this device over a smartphone or cellphone of some kind. The reason was because this particularly product, tied to the Metricom broadband service, provided the basis for my smartphone experience. Because I was highly familiar and comfortable with a pocket computer experience, I didn’t have the same profound “aha” moments many did with their first smartphones because the iPaq had provided the fundamental experience of apps and the internet in your pocket.
My first HDTV – Mitsubishi 55” Rear Projection
Being an early adopter I bought my first HDTV the second I could possibly afford one which was in 2003. That was also the year my first daughter was born, so I positioned it as a birthday present for her, which obviously no one believed.
I remember the first time I saw an HD picture on this beast. I nearly cried. I stared at it for hours and watched the most random things simply because HD content was limited and I just wanted to watch HD shows. I remember telling my wife it was like looking out a window or like actually being at the football or baseball game. She didn’t think so but I did and that was all that mattered.
I chose the iPad for a number of reasons. Mainly because in the 13+ years I have been working in the technology industry I always dreamed of a product like this (a no compromise tablet) and this was the first to deliver. I used nearly every pen computing tablet that came to market in a variety of shapes and sizes prior to the iPad. Yes, there are a number of good tablets on the market and they will all continue to get better but for me the iPad brought touch computing to the mass market and is still the cream of the crop in my opinion.
Arguably touch computing started with the iPhone but a small pocketable screen is only capable of some elements of touch computing where the iPad represents a much more holistic touch computing platform and has cast a vision of where touch computing will go with future innovations.

We’ve assembled a few thoughtful gift ideas from the old LogicBuy inventory. Some are full-fledged gifts, and others are cute extras to tack on to the package, and a few are just great ideas to make your mom’s life easier. Whether your mom’s an amateur blogger or a tech-averse luddite, the following gadgets are all easy to use and low in price.
One of these Smartphones
We’re not sure what plan your mother’s currently on or if she has any intention of switching. But ask yourself this: Does she know what Shazaam is? If she doesn’t, chances are she could use a phone upgrade. If she’s on AT&T, check out the Nokia Lumia 900 for $49.99, or the Samsung Galaxy Note for $229.99 (points for its extra-huge screen). Verizon also offers $50 for the Samsung Nexus and only $0.01 for the LG Lucid or Spectrum. There are plenty of deals for Sprint and T-Mobile customers as well. Almost all of these phones require a two-year contract with a carrier, so choose carefully. Take a look at our smartphone roundup page for all the best deals from each carrier.
Ematic E-Reader – $49.99
It’s hard to beat $49.99 on an e-reader from any store. Assuming that you’re looking for a straight-shooting e-reader and aren’t interested in any fancy tablet features, this is the best deal you’re likely to find. This 7″ model from Ematic comes with 4GB of storage space and a microSD slot with 16GB of expandable memory. It supports all the standard e-reading file formats like ePUB, HTML, and PDF. It even has a built-in music and video players that supports MP3, MP4, AVI, and others. But don’t expect wonders from its media player or proprietary software. We’re not familiar with its OS, Kobo eReading Desktop Software, and outside of the 2.5 million titles the eBook store offers, we can’t glean too much more about it. Mom won’t be able to download books wirelessly (it’s not WiFi-capable) but it will connect to her Mac or Windows PC with a simple USB cable. Also, it comes in a bunch of different colors. Pick her favorite!
JVC Sport Clip Earbud Headphones – $16.99
Nothing encourages good exercise habits like a pair of sports headphones. This pair from JVC will do the trick. It has in-ear buds, over-ear clips, 11mm drivers, and heavy bass response. They also come in a variety of colors. This 15% coupon for the JVC Sport Clip Headphones actually applies to all JVC headphones from Best Buy, but this pair is our pick for heart-healthy moms.
Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus 2012
Give yourself the gift of not having to fix your mom’s computer every time it gets infected. Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus 2012 won top grades from AV software reviewers around the web, and at the all-time low price of FREE it’s hard to beat. You will have to pay $79.99 for the initial purchase, but you’ll receive a full rebate and a 4GB flash drive if you fill out the form. Your mom (and your mom’s computer) will thank you.
Canon PowerShot SX150 – $144
Moms like preserving memories, but it’s up to you to point her towards the right digital camera. This deal on a 14MP Canon PowerShot should do the trick. With a big 3″ LCD display, a 12x optical zoom, and 720p video, she’ll have no problem taking and uploading crisp, beautiful photos. Also, it comes in red which means love, or something.
Netgear NeoTV Wireless Media Player – $49.99
Is your mom on the Hulu Plus? The Netflix? She’ll love it. Set her up with this Netgear streaming media player and you’ll swear that 1-hour-of-TV-a-day rule she instituted was by a whole other person. Plus, the NeoTV is cheaper than the cheapest Roku ($59.99) and Apple TV ($99). Extra points if you pay for her Netflix susbscription, too.
This Cute Laptop Sleeve – $27.99
“This is why we can’t have nice things!” — your mom.
Show her how you’ve grown with this super cute laptop sleeve by BUILT NY. Not a polka dot person? Try these understated florals in B&W. It’s a 16″ case, though, so make sure her laptop is a 16″ or under.
I’ve already shown you the Ematic ($49.99), the cheapest e-reader around. But if you’re looking for a totally tricked-out e-reader with a whole range of functionality, your dollar goes a lot further for an extra $100 with the Nook Color ($149). The Nook has a 7″ backlit screen, includes 8GB of memory (expanadable up to 32GB with microSD card), and it’s Wi-Fi-capable.

There are tons of free apps available for the iPad, but there are some even better paid apps out there that help users stay productive with what is often labeled as a just a “consumption device”. In this piece, I’ll take a look at some of the apps that I like to use to when I’m away from my notebook computer.
Splashtop 2 – Remote Desktop $4.99
Splashtop 2 is an invaluable tool for those that love the ability to be able to “travel light” by only carrying a tablet, but still access full desktop apps/functionality in a pinch when required. Splashtop 2 allows you to remote into any desktop/laptop that has the companion Splashtop Streamer software (free) installed. Once connected, you can perform any task that your heart desires as if you were sitting in front of your standard PC/Mac.
Splashtop also offers easy setup and discovery of PCs and can work with a local LAN/wireless network or over the internet. Best of all, the app currently only costs $4.99.
Photoshop Touch $9.99
Photoshop Touch a simply a no-brainer choice people that need an image editing app on-the-go. The $9.99 app provides a close approximation of the full-size Photoshop software package for tablet users. Photoshop Touch provides the ability to use layers, selection tools, filters, and the ability to work with images up to 12MP. Users can sync projects though Adobe Creative Cloud, print projects using AirPrint, and even continue their projects on their desktop/laptop using Adobe Photoshop CS 5.1 or CS 6.
And for those that may seem overwhelmed by the vast options and somewhat confusing interface, Photoshop provides some handy in-app tutorials to help power you master difficult concepts.
Sure, there is an official Twitter app out there for the iPad, but if you truly want to micromanage your Twitter experience, it’s hard to beat TweetBot. TweetBot offers a much friendlier and logically-arranged user interface than the official Twitter client, and there are numerous options including the ability to customize alerts and choose your own URL shorteners and image uploading services.
Quickoffice Pro HD $19.99
Quickoffice Pro is probably one of the best ways to edit Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents on the iPad. The office suite costs $19.99, which manages to undercut Apple’s trio of iOS apps (Pages, Keynote, Numbers) by $10. Quickoffice allows you to sync your files with a number of services including Dropbox, Google Docs, SugarSync, and Evernote. In addition, Quickoffice is compatible with Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents (it’s even compatible with documents dating back to Office 97).
Other features include the ability to save files as PDFs and print documents directly from your iPad using AirPrint.
If you want to know just how good Quickoffice Pro HD is and how important it is for the mobile document editing space, look no further than the fact that Google acquired its maker back in June.
GoodReader is a handy tool to have around for those that need to manage large TXT and PDF files. While there is a built-in PDF reader in iOS, GoodReader takes things to the next level with the ability to annotate documents (highlight, draw, underline, strikeout, etc.) to your heart’s content. GoodReader also offers the ability to Sync across Dropbox, SkyDrive, and SugarSync (there are also options to use WebDAV and FTP among others).
