Never lose your phone again with the EZIO line of jewelry!

Are you paranoid over leaving your phone behind somewhere? I know I am. I’m so nervous I grasp my cell if I’m anywhere new or unfamiliar, basically kung-fu death gripping my device in a sweaty panic. I wish I had a second layer of defense against the “UH-OH”s, something to tell me I’m forgetting it. Something like the EZIO line of watches and jewelry.
EZIO (not the Assassin) uses Bluetooth 4.0 and proximity sensors to alert users when they get too far away from their linked device. Stray 5-10 feet away and the watch or necklace will alert you that your expensive communication unit is not with you. EZIO does more than that though, it also alerts you to missed calls and texts!
The EZIO lineup will include watches for both men and women, necklaces and bracelets. The watches will retail for $149.99, will include a stainless steel front with leather banding and is expected to hit March 2013. The pendants and bracelets will come in four designs for the style savvy lady, will retail for $99.99 and are also expected in March 2013.

Geeky Gadget Review: Turtle Beach EarForce Tango Headset
Last Updated on Wednesday, 23 January 2013 05:30 Written by Laddie13 Wednesday, 23 January 2013 05:30
I don’t always game with a headset but when I do, I don’t like being restricted by wires. Last year my quest to become untethered while gaming led me to Turtle Beach Earforce Delta. Little did I know having the freedom of no wires would bring about another burden, battery addiction. The Turtle Beach wireless headset is powered by two AA batteries and I found myself forking over a small fortune for the tiny power givers that also seemingly gave out in the most inopportune moments, for instance during a heated MP match.
Turtle Beach obviously realized their mistake of not making the headsets chargeable and have recently introduced models with built-in batteries that can be charged during gameplay if needed. Sure I didn’t need a new headset but I could not resist the lure of the TurtleBeach EarForce Tango. So when Amazon recently discounted them I couldn’t resist spending my holiday gift cards and cash on the Call Of Duty themed rechargeable wireless headset. In the long run I will be saving since I no longer have to buy batteries, or at least that’s what I’m telling myself to justify the purchase.
The Tango headset sports a lovely black and orange color pattern matching the Black Ops theme its branded with. Even if you are not a fan of Call Of Duty, these babies look amazing. They boast 5.1 surround capabilities which at first I thought might be a downgrade from the 7.1 the Deltas had. However for gaming I actually think the 5.1 is better as the surround sounds much closer and encompassing which works well when listening for enemy footsteps in multiplayer. The headset ships with 8 pre-set sound configurations designed for optimal Black Ops 2 sound enjoyment but with the advanced sound editor you can customize new ones. It’s even possible to upload your own configurations so that others in the Turtle Beach community can also use them. The chat function is also open for customization and with the touch of a button it’s possible to make your voice sound like a robot. That’s a feature I’m tempted to try out when gaming with immature randoms who think a girls place is not in gaming. Read more: Geeky Gadget Review: Turtle Beach EarForce Tango Headset

Gaming, mobile and audio peripherals are some of the biggest attractions at CES this year even more so than the TV’s and PC’s. However one presence that seemed to rise up and dominate at CES 2013 was the Kickstarter projects. I doubt you’ll get any objection the Pebble Smartwatch stole the show. With over $10 million dollars in funding its release has been long-awaited. The Pebble uses an E-Paper display that allows for an amazing watch display with prolonged battery life.

CES Daily Round Up Day 2

Pinball Machines, iPhone cases and Gaming Tablets oh my! The amount of iPhone cases at this year’s CES is nearly sickening. Everything from bamboo to Marvel Superhero’s and skin-tight waterproof suites. It’s become very obvious that this year’s CES is a tradeshow and not so much a product announcement platform. 3D is out for the most part and audio is a big factor this year. Monster (Creators of Beats by Dre) abounds alongside every rapper/hip hop artist out there promoting a new pair of headsets. No real feedback has come back on most of the overpriced, gaudy audio devices but if you are looking for something to style with your newest pair of kicks the options abound. Your money is probably better spent on a pair of Skullcandy headsets giving you a better bang for your buck. Hit the break for more…
