Fast Friday Tech Roundup: Sept. 5

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!


It’s All Aces
If you look around your home or office you’re bound to see an ACER product in use. Acer, the Taiwanese computer company, has just launched a series of new tablets, tablet-PC convertibles, wearable devices, a smartphone and more! Oh, and would you look at that, just in time for holiday shopping. With way too many features and specs to mention, click here to get the low-down on the hardware that’s right for your needs. Suffice it to say they all come with high speed processors, tons of storage, gorilla glass and affordable prices. An ace for Acer!


No Cloud for You
The latest hacking scandal, and release, of celebrity skin pix has led us to realize what we all already knew…the cloud is not all it’s cracked up to be. So, let’s show the folks in Hollywood how we get things done here on the East Coast…we use our own personal cloud devices! Yes, that’s right; we’re kicking-it-old-school by using an External Hard Drive! Check out the Western Digital My Book 4TB. For less than 150 bucks…it’s no hacking, just all backing…up that is!


Don’t play with my Emoji
Emoji’s, you know ‘em, you love ‘em! Emoji’s, in case you weren’t aware, are those little glorified punctuation marks people use to express their emotions within texts, tweets and emails. Well get ready, now there’s an app (currently in development), that let’s users communicate with nothing-but-Emoji’s! No hashtags, no text, nothing. Just pure icons, pictures and fun for everyone! Click here to reserve your username before they’re all gone!


When One Door Closes…
Is there really a new way to lock and unlock the door to your home? Yes! It’s called Haven. Haven attaches to the floor and the doorframe eliminating the need for the typical deadbolt or sliding chain. Using the latest technology and engineering might, Haven utilizes the strong foundation of the door and the floor to create an impenetrable seal. In case you’re wondering, you can open and close the door using your smartphone or an electronic key similar to the one you use to open your car doors. Open says me!
