New wireless charging tech lets you drop up to three gadgets anywhere on this pad to charge them at the same time

If you’ve ever used a wireless charger, you know there’s exactly one place you can put your phone on it to work. Now, a new type of wireless charging technology is hitting the market and it’s more effortless than ever.

“People have generally not had a great experience with wireless charging,” explained Noah Dentzel, CEO and co-founder of Nomad. The company is known for its high-quality mobile accessories.

Recently, I visited Nomad’s headquarters in Santa Barbara to check out a new device called Base Station Pro.

“As you’d imagine, you just drop your phone down, and then it starts charging,” says Dentzel. The entire surface is a charge. Not only can you lay your phone anywhere, but it can charge up to three devices at once.

“What this is all about is assurance and reliability. Put it on there, you’re going to wake

Everyday cheapskate: Kitchen gadgets that will pay for themselves | Family

A vacuum sealer, when used diligently, will extend the shelf life of every type of food imaginable. That means your garbage disposal and trash can will cease to be the best-fed members of your household!

I am more convinced than ever that healthy eating is one of the most effective ways to reduce health care costs. That’s why I thought we needed a powerful juicer to make healthy smoothies every morning. So, I purchased a highly rated juicer — and used it exactly two times before it became a dust-collector and space-occupier.

Cleaning the thing was so difficult and time-consuming that it became more of a problem than a solution. Whoops.

Another problem? Juicers don’t make smoothies! Powerful, professional-grade blenders do.

So, eight years ago, I donated the juicer to a friend who could use it and replaced it with a Blendtec. That exact model Blendtec is still available at

Super-neat gadgets for people on the move

Activ5 pocket gym
The 125mm-long box announces this as a “tiny gym in your pocket” – one of the more extravagant claims I have seen, unless the gym were for the performers in a flea circus. The Activ5 is like a smooth, medium-sized pebble that fits in the palm of your hand and has no controls and seemingly no gym-like characteristics – not even an overpriced juice bar. But what is not immediately obvious is that it is an isometric-based training device and turns out to be rather brilliant. Isometrics are strength exercises that use your body’s muscle force against itself or a static object or surface, and are said to be highly efficient without involving weights or other equipment.

The kitchen utensils you just need to get rid of

For people who cook at home, the kitchen needs to be a well-oiled machine that is both easy to use for food preparation but also a pleasant place to spend time. Most people don’t have canyons of extra space in their kitchens though, so it’s important to make sure everything that makes it into our pantries, shelves, drawers, cabinets, and, most exclusive of all, our countertops, is there for a reason.

Even if you are blessed with a huge amount of kitchen real estate, it’s safe to assume your design intent doesn’t include mountains of unnecessary clutter.

Here are the common items taking up precious space that most of us can get rid of, guilt free.

With no gadgets,students all at sea | Hyderabad News

Hyderabad: Nearly 7,000 school students in Mahabubabad district have no access to any gadgets and hence cannot attend the online classes, which are beginning on September 1.
Students in Telangana have been asked to attend the online classes which will be telecast on DD Yadagiri, Saptagiri and T-SAT network. However, the grim reality for many students, not just in Mahabubabad, is that they do not have either a TV set at home, a computer or a mobile phone with Internet facility, sources said. As the new academic year 2020-21 rolls out amid the pandemic after a long delay, officials are asking the gram panchayats to provide TV sets for the benefit of students. Mahabubabad district collector VP Gautam asked the panchayats to seek cooperation of the pubic representatives in this endeavour. Cable operators have also been asked by collectors to see that there is no interruption in the telecast.

UCLA Researchers to Use Apple Gadgets in Depression Study

Identifying depression can be a tricky beast. However, UCLA researchers are collaborating with Apple in a three-year study to see if gadgets can help revolutionize how depression is detected and treated.

The study, which was co-designed by UCLA researchers and Apple, aims to measure sleep, physical activity, heart rate, and “daily routines” to see if there is a correlation between these metrics and depression and anxiety. To track those metrics, researchers will utilize an iPhone, Apple Watch, and Beddit, the sleep-monitoring gadget company that Apple acquired in 2017.

The idea here is that depression and anxiety may be related to physiological changes. In a best-case scenario, researchers would potentially be able to identify the onset of a depressive episode based on a person’s health data, as well as track whether a certain type of treatment is effective.
