The SOPA Blackout Created a Big Problem

The SOPA Blackout Created a Big Problem | Tech lounge | Scoop.it
SOPA has been a big deal for many online sites like The Lounge we produce videos where we interview artists and singers, film makers and more. On occasion we use TV footage to show some of the talents who are actually on TV. If this new law passes and someone reports this site, the law permits the host of this site to take it down. We don't like the idea of such limits no matter how legit the reason. Now many sites are planning a major blackout to protest this potential law.
Like any good protest, it created a news event that brought large-scale awareness to something that's wrong with the world.

TouchFire: The Screen-Top Keyboard for iPad | Tech lounge | Scoop.it
TouchFire makes your iPad feel like a normal keyboard! TouchFire puts the "touch" back into typing on an iPad. You can now feel where the keys are and rest your fingers on the home row, so you can type as fast and accurately as you can on a laptop.

We have been keeping an eye on this product for some time. The product lays on top of your iPad 2 and stays on it by using The magnets hidden throughout. The keys line up to the basic keyboard layout in them screen and allow for tactile feedback. When not in use the keyboard safely and softly stores away without the threat of loosing it. Check out this slick idea to make the iPad feel more like a magic laptop. Designed and developed by engineers, who have designed amazing technology products, it's a must see at least.

THE INDYWOOD MOVIE PROJECT - BECOME A PRE-ORDER PRODUCER FROM £10/$16

THE INDYWOOD MOVIE PROJECT - BECOME A PRE-ORDER PRODUCER FROM £10/$16 | Tech lounge | Scoop.it

The Indywood Movie Project is a indie Zombie flick that has been trying for the past for years to get funded entirely by twitter fans.  The film called the "INVASION OF THE NOT QUITE DEAD", began as a dream for filmmaker Ad Lane.  After finally passing kidney stones... yes kidney stones, he re-evaluated his life and decided to attend film school where one of the lessons learned was the difficulty in getting a film financed. 

 

He then launched The Indywood Project where he would persue a fan fund to raise capital to create his film.  All of the funding would come from fans on Twitter.  He would manage to raise nearly half of his planned budget. He would occasionally have "No Sleep" twitter fundraisers of which one was 86 hours long.

 

His committment is clearly firm and they have already shot over half the film in Bulgaria.  The second half is being shot in the UK this year where he hopes to complete it by the summer.  Check out his early trailer footage.  What do you think?

More than 40% of smartphones owners who use Research in Motion BlackBerry, Microsoft Windows Phone and Google Android platforms prefer Apple's iPad to tablets from their current smartphone operating system makers, according to a recent survey.
