Barnes and Noble Nook Tablet HD+ Review

Barnes and Noble Nook Tablet HD+ Review | Tech Review | Scoop.it

"Barnes and Noble has commercially released its first large screen tablet, which is a bit of a departure from the standard seven inch device. Its form and function are quite different than the prior iterations and should give people looking at the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 and iPad another player to consider."

The iPad Mini Could Spur an Education Revolution

The iPad Mini Could Spur an Education Revolution | Tech Review | Scoop.it

"I have long been a skeptic about the role of personal computing in education, especially for K-12 schools. Yes, the internet has made a wealth of information accessible to students. But the instructional revolution promised by technology optimists seems to hover forever on the horizon. The tablet—and for now, at least, that really means the iPad for reasons I will get to—could be the tool that finally makes the difference. And the new iPad mini could greatly accelerate the trend."

The Future of Wearable Technology

The Future of Wearable Technology | Tech Review | Scoop.it

You probably thought your Uncle Henry was a little weird (and annoying) when he kept showing you how many more Nike FuelBand calories he needed to burn/earn to reach his preset daily goal. But what’s amazing is how that little wrist band with its tight feedback loop displaying points can actually motivate people to improve their lifestyle. Oh, it also makes a nice watch.

 

We’re at the dawn of a new industry loosely called "wearable technology" that may have reached $4.6 billion in sales around the world already this year.And Google Glass isn’t even for sale yet. Many geeks already are on board. The April Modis Geek Pride Survey of people aged 18 or over found that "61 percent of self-described geeks said they would buy and wear a smart watch," and "56 percent would do the same with smart glasses." Perhaps even more interesting, 37 percent of non-geeks were also interested in smart watches, and 35 percent were interested in smart glasses....But where is the trend going?

While geeks accepted wearable technology first, will the general public get on board? Great question!

Good insight to have as a PR rep.  Knowing upcoming and developing trends is the foundation of our work.

This is an interesting infograph, I hadn't heard of a couple of these sites and after investigating further can see the added value that they would bring to online collaboration and sharing. I think that this Digital Footprint needs to be created hand in hand with Digital Citizenship investigations and lessons. The inner text needs to be what students use and relate to in class and at home so that it is rich and real to the student.

2012 Trends: Tech Year in Review - Tech Cocktail

2012 Trends: Tech Year in Review - Tech Cocktail | Tech Review | Scoop.it

The sharing economy is helping us cut down on clutter, as people choose to share rather than own things. We can get rooms to rent on Airbnb, one of the earliest “collaborative consumption” sites, which booked 5 million nights in the first half of 2012. We can reserve cars on Zipcar, Car2Go, andGetaround, which spent 2012 expanding their reach into new cities. And yerdle launched on Black Friday to encourage us to share things with our friends, rather than buy, buy, buy. In fact, the sharing movement has started to organize, with advocates like OuiShare and The People Who Share declaring November 14, 2012, to be Global Sharing Day.

A good Ultrabook, a bad tablet: the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 review - Ars Technica | Tech Review | Scoop.it
Lenovo's IdeaPad Yoga 13 is something different. Rather than folding to cover the keyboard, it has been endowed with an extremely flexible hinge that flips all the way over. This allows you not just to convert the laptop into a tablet, but also to use the base of the laptop as a stand for the screen. The end result is something that doesn't always work, but it hits more often than it misses.
