Each week we scour the digital world looking for the hottest gadgets, trending topics, new apps and more! We pass it on to you in easy to read bite-size morsels…after that you are on your own to surf at will!

appleLucky Number… Six?
As kids head back to school this year you can be sure their minds will not entirely be on their studies. On September 9th Apple unveils the new iPhone 6. Features they’ll be talking about on this year’s model? There’s a larger more durable display, a faster processor and an improved camera. Let the countdown begin!

marshallRockin’ is Cool…, but it isn’t Cheap!
Know a musician who you think has it all? Not so fast! Now they can rock when they’re off stage too with the Marshall Bluetooth Speaker System. Using Bluetooth Technology they can rock the house from their smart phone, tablet or computer. “We’re not worthy!”

bikeBike of the Future?
This new bike is called “Denny” and it is the most ingenious, useful bike ever! The handlebars double as the bike lock, the lights are automatic (turn signals and brake lights too!), there’s flexible storage space and a unique “Electric Pedal Assist”. Not available yet, I guess are old wheels will just have to do.

pinterestPinterest Users Unite…Literally!
Pinterest, the world’s largest scrapbook, has shown that they are in the game for the long haul. Earlier this week they released Pinterest Messages. Created and launched in just three months it already has more functionality than Facebook’s and Twitter’s messaging systems. With too many features to mention here, it’s worth a look.
