Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | RSSA successful Kickstarter campaign, Pressy is a cool button you can program and use when you need it. Whether it takes a photo, turns on the flashlight, or opens up your favorite app, the button can become a helpful gadget. Pressy comes with a keychain holder so you can store when not in use. Download the app from the Play store and insert Pressy. Alert the phone its inserted, then use it for whatever you programmed the button with. For example, I have one press opening the Pressy dashboard. Two presses and it opens up one of my favorite games. Three presses and a photo is taken. Programming is simplistic at this time. I forsee a lot more options – maybe a morse code system to add more functions. Short presses vs. long presses opening new apps. It’s only available for Android devices at...

The light is portable so you can use it for everything from lighting a stage to looking for a lost item. The XM18 has multiple light settings. 600 lumens, 3,0000 lumens and 15,000 lumens. There is even a strobe feature for emergency or dancing. The XM18 is battery driven. 26 – 18650 cells with fan cooling and aluminum heat sink. The FourSevens XM18 Maelstrom costs $2,399. Other flashlights start at $23.99 (www.foursevens.com) [cessponsor]
Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | RSSI download apps all the time to review. You might download apps to play games, or just for utilities. But some of those apps might be doing more than just turning your phone into a flashlight. They might be malware, or they could be taking more personal information than you know. That is where TrustGo comes in. They look at the apps, then let you know if this app is safe to download. For Android (working on iOS), you install this app, then let it scan other apps that download. This is technically not anti-virus, because TrustGo does a lot more. In this day and age, malware is only one threat. TrustGo is available now for you to download.
