Star Trek%u2122Communicator - Android Apps on Google Play. Until the real thing comes, this app is great. It literally turns your Android phone into a Star Trek Communicator, complete with flip up screen. It also has a large volume of sounds and quotes from the original series. Sorry, iPhone users, we are geekier than you are. Stay cool.
Want a Working 'Star Trek' Communicator? Someone Has Made It So! [PICS] - Geeks are Sexy Technology NewsGeeks are Sexy Technology News. It was just a matter of time until someone licensed and made a working Star Trek Communicator. Attaching to a phone via Bluetooth, you too can flip up the cover, and call Captain Kirk on the Enterprise. Yes, I am a Trekker (adult Trek fan). Not a Trekkie (a child Trek Fan). Call it my guilty pleasure. For $150, you know I will be preordering one of these. Beam me up.
Hey Look the Most Nightmarish Idea for Plane Seating Ever | WIRED. I swear. I can't stand the center seat on an airplane. I am squished from both sides, and there is no place to put my arms. I avoid the center seat unless I am late, and that is all that is available. Now, in an attempt to squeeze even more passengers in, the airlines have explored the option of reversing the center seat. Supposedly, that adds leg room. However, it also makes me look at two obnoxious people for the whole flight, and I guarantee you that one of them will talk all the time, or whatever annoying thing you can imagine. I swear. If the airlines do this, I will start driving everywhere. I don't care if it takes an extra day or two. Hey, maybe I can reconnect with the homeland. I certainly will be more comfortable.
Apple Watch Review: After 2 Months%u2026 | TechCrunch. Josh Constine, from TechCrunch, posted this brief review of the Apple Watch after two months of use. I hope somebody else paid the plus $500 price for the watch. After almost a year, I am still using my favorite three smartwatches running Android Wear and Tizen every day.

Is Google Glass back from the dead with Enterprise Edition? | ITProPortal.com. Google Glass was always in your face and on your face, and I never got the appeal of walking around making other people feel uncomfortable. It is one thing that we live in a world where our every move is on camera, from CCTV to body cameras. But, something about Glass was just creepy. Now, after the first version died, it appears that Google is going for it again, with the Enterprise Edition. I have no objection to specialized uses for the device, such as assisting in teaching, surgery, police work and so forth. But, self involved "cool" people wearing these everywhere? No thank you. I like the idea of wearable computing; and, I can see industrial and professional applications for head mounted displays. But, for general use? Annoying.
Playing Bing Pong Is the Best Thing You Can Do With Bing. And I have been lauding Microsoft for becoming an innovative company again. Their virtual reality and OS improvements are mind bending; but, it appears the people who work in the search engine part of the company haven't got the memo. I still think, as I did in the beginning, think that Bing was a search engine name thought up by a group of Crosby fans born in the thirties. But, now, in an attempt to be cool, the company has actually created a Pong game in Bing. Yes, that's right, Bing Pong. Of course, the last time anyone played Pong was in the Seventies. It wasn't cool even then. I predict that you won't be playing this game. Now, if you want to know what Pong was (young whippersnappers), Google it. Just don't Bing it.
