Smart watches have been around for awhile now. Ever since someone had the genius idea to take the Apple iPod Nano and attach it to your wrist with a watch strap holder, there have been a few entries into the market that have tried to compete with this pretty cool concept. Most of these have been based around variations of the Android operating system, so you could pair the watch with your phone and add some cool apps.
Put Android technology in your pocket for the cheapest price, with the Philips Gogear Connect. Just like the iPod Touch, this is a stripped back piece of tech, more compact than a smartphone but still retaining that mini tablet like set of features whilst also being an amazing music and video player at the same time.
Slingbox is a seriously cool technology – it allows you to stream your home TV programs to your broadband enabled computer and smartphones. Both Slingbox (source/ transmitter) and the device (receiver) (computer and smartphones) should be running the SlingPlayer software and they should be connected to high speed broadband networks through a cable or DSL line or even a 3G network. When these conditions are satisfied, the distance between the source and the receiver does not really matter. As long as you are connected to high speed broadband, you can watch your SlingBox playback from anywhere- whether that’s another room in the house, on the train or bus while commuting or even halfway around the world.
