Novel ad campaign squeezes extra life out of dead batteries

Novel ad campaign squeezes extra life out of dead batteries | Technology | Scoop.it
Thai soymilk company Vitamilk has rolled out a rather interesting advertising vehicle in the form of a large signboard that takes "dead" batteries and squeezes enough extra power out of them to charge smartphones...
zachary nunnikhoven's insight:

This is a great idea because it would reduce the amount of batteries put into landfills greatly. This artical makes a good point when it says that most people through away batteries once there divice shows signs of not working properly. I know that this is true for me because i do that all the time. This could also really help the evironment and the amount of toxins released into the soil.

I agree with your insight. I think it will greatly help reduce the amount of pollution by reducing the amount of toxins given off by the batteries if they're not completly dead.

Can You Hear Me Now? New Technology Has Me Putting My Finger In Your Ear
Aleteia
The Christian universe is enormous, with a seemingly endless number of sites, blogs and websites.
zachary nunnikhoven's insight:

This seems like a good idea to me. I think that if you could use it in the class room that it would be great for when a teacher needed to talk to a stundent idividually and not have the other kids over hear. I also think that it would be weird having a teacher or even a friend come over and start touching your ear. It would also be very unsanitary.

Galaxy Gear a wearable device enhances the freedom of mobile communications (Im not sure I actually like these new bigger sized phones, I find them a bit impractical, what do you think?
zachary nunnikhoven's insight:

'Texting Zones' For Distracted Drivers in N.Y.

'Texting Zones' For Distracted Drivers in N.Y. | Technology | Scoop.it
At a press conference on Monday, Governor Cuomo announced that the state would designate certain areas along New York highways as texting zones. In addition, New York State will provide signs advertising the texting zones to drivers.
zachary nunnikhoven's insight:

I think that is a good idea because it would hopefully reduce the amount people text while driving because they would have a place to stop and text. It is also kinda rediculas that they have to do that because the only reason that anyone should ever be texting while driving is if its an emergency. I also think that people might not even use these stops so they would waist the money setting up these stops and no would use them.

zachary nunnikhoven's insight:

If they can perfect this I think that it would be a very useful tool. You would no longer have to get up and plug in your charger and have to sit right next to the outlet wehn your battery got low. This also could be helpful in the class room if they can put it in laptops. Then if you forgot to charge your laptop over night then you would not have to get up during class and switch seats with someone because your out of battery all that you would have to do is use this.

Tests: New iPhones less durable than iPhone 5 - Boston.com | Technology | Scoop.it
NEW YORK (AP) — As Apple pitches its newest smartphones, users may find something lacking compared with last year's model: They could break more easily.
zachary nunnikhoven's insight:

I dont think that i would by a new smart phone if it would break right away. I would rather use my money on other things. I know you can buy case's for your phone.

I think that they should make sure that their new phones stay as durable as the ones before it. Us being humans we drop and break them. I think this might even be a way for Apple to just get more of our money for repairs and maybe just new phones.

Company selling iPhone cases with built-in stun gun | Technology | Scoop.it
A company called YellowJacket is selling iPhone cases with a built-in stun gun in the hopes of deterring thefts of the new devices. (Worried about protecting your new iPhone 5S from thieves?
zachary nunnikhoven's insight:

I think that it is a bad idea to have a stun gun in an iPhone because I think that there would be some kids messing around and thing that it would be a good idea to shoot eachother and they might wind up hurting each other.
