Great New App for Forgetful People

Pixie, a new start-up, created an app that gives non-digital items like wallets, keys, purses, etc. that are frequently lost a digital presence. This presence is actually a sensor, small enough to attach to most items. The sensor is attached to Pixie’s app, which will locate the lost item within a range. When that item falls out of range, it will let the user know the last place that the item was identified.
Another cool feature of Pixie is that the sensors attached to various items can connect to other items with sensors, making a network of all of your stuff. I’m sure that Pixie is not the first group attempting to make technology like this, so it will be interesting to see its success, likely based on the accuracy of its tracking services.
For anyone who has downloaded Pixie already, how accurate is it? Do you recommend it?

5 Apps for Couples in LDRs
"Honey, I'm sorry I have to take that job across the country." "Yikes," you think. But then you remember that you live in the 21st century, full of helpful communication tools and technology. YOU GOT THIS! Being in a Long Distance Relationships are really tough, but using technology can help keep things fun and creative with your communications tools. Here are some that I LOVE <3 1. Couple This app is pretty self-explanatory (I mean the name says it all!). It's essentially a sharing app for you and your partner. It's a clean way to share messages, video, images, and also real-time drawings. 2. Showgoers This isn't technically an app, but it's amazing. Want to have a movie date with your partner, but are having a hard time figuring out when and how to watch something at the same time? This app is a chrome extension that helps you both hit PLAY at the same time. Movie dates in the modern world people! 3. DreamDays I've come across a variety of "day counting apps" but this one has to be my favorite! Not only does it count down the days until something, but you can organize it too! Plus it's just really pretty and well-made, so you can count down the days until you see your partner in style. 4. Companion Ever worry about your partner and their late night commute? Or just would appreciate that your partner is watching over you. This app allows you to be your partners (or anyone really) "companion" as you watch them get safely to their destination. And is awesome. Thanks @LizArnone for that heads-up. 5. Simply Us Share your calendar, todo list, and others notes with your partner so they know what's on your plate. This one could be particularly helpful surprise dates, because you will know exactly when their schedule is less messy! You can also use these with Long-Distance Family and friends. In additions to some of these apps, my family likes to use WhatsApp and Snapchat to keep each other reminded of our love. Are you using any of these apps in your LDR? What tech do you use to keep in contact?

Sailor Moon Drops?!?!
Soooooo, I was on Facebook and it suggested a game for me to try! Every Sailor Moon fan who likes bejeweled should play this! This game is not only a fun puzzle game with pretty jewels, it also follows the Sailor Moon anime plot line! You move along a map, your enemy is Beryl (like the classic), and you get to checkpoints where you have to defeat enemies! You start with Usagi introducing herself, and transforming into a sailor soldier, and make friends along the way, like in the series! Plus, you can't forget the dynamic of Usagi and Mamoru! And of course, Tuxedo Mask, who as always, has a great bit of flare! 😂😉 I love her reaction! So classic! The game is well done and cute, everyone should play it! Happy puzzle playing!

Emojis Are Not Made The Same
Not all devices are alike. Apple, Android, and Windows, to name a few, are very different operating systems and that key difference also makes for very different variations of emojis. The most popularized Unicode Consortium, or the body that selects which emojis will make their public debut, is the Apple version. They are used in marketing campaigns, commercials, apps, texting, food delivery, etc. However operating systems like iOS, Android, Windows, Blackberry, Samsung, LG, etc. don't always have the same variations of emojis that the general public is accustomed to. This leads to an ultimate dilemma, emojis are basically a language all their own and somehow they are getting lost in digital translation. Thanks to Yahoo tech, a comprised list of varied emojis from device to device: 1. Woman With Bunny Ears You may recognize this emoji normally as the Bunny twins, tap-dancing girls, showgirls, or any of the other various nicknames. However when you transfer over to Android, you'll be in a surprise that the emoji becomes a yellow gumdrop looking face with a brown wig and bunny ears. The dynamic duo is no longer, which probably leads to some confusion at Halloween for Android users who are curious as to when there was an emoji of two Woman With Bunny Ears. 2. Colored Hearts This one is all about design. Apple keeps the hearts very uniform, vibrantly colored, and as basic as can be. For Android, the emojis hold a lot more meaning while also being somewhat cheesy. There is practically no color variation and I don't even know what to think about the fuzzy heart. Emojis are supposed to be playful and I think Android really missed the boat on this one. 3. Watch Obviously iOS looks classier but I am definitely a bigger fan of Android for some reason. I think sometimes less is more and I think it translates well in this instance. After all, a watch is a universal symbol so it's really hard to mess that up between devices. If anything, the emojis from device to device just show a different kind of watch that is solely exclusive to it's own device which seems cool in this example. 4. Eggplant You know exactly what this means if it's sent in iMessage. And you know exactly how hilarious this emoji can be because let's be honest, there is really no everyday use for an eggplant so you might as well spice it up a bit if you know what I'm aiming at. Now as for Android, it's a poor example of an eggplant to begin with but there is no way that it'd ever be used for alternative purposes within messaging. Just no way. 5. Slice of Pizza Okay Android wins on this one. The iOS version looks like a horribly designed emoji that is trying way too hard to be life-like. I appreciate the pic-art look of Android's emoji in this comparison. However, Dominos Pizza is using the iOS emoji in their brand as you can order a pizza now just sending that emoji. After all, that's pretty clever but the pizza emoji could get a generic facelift. 6. Rowboat This is a BIG difference. iOS looks certainly more appropriate and attractive on an interface. The Android immediately signals a date instance which could be totally misconstrued. Also Android needs to keep up with the times as emojis no longer have one option -- with LGBT and racial skin tones being introduced, their emojis need to be updated. Emojis are great because they include everyone and the rowboat needs the same. 7. Glowing Heart Either way, they both accurately depict what you're trying to show. Personally I like the iOS version more however the Android heart isn't horrible. A heart is a heart no matter how you dress it up. Good work to both. 8. Pistol/Gun Windows is the only operating system that doesn't include a gun that looks like iOS. Instead they've opted for a less serious space gun that could easily be more appropriate for Star Trek than anything else. With weapon emojis being taken more and more serious in the media, Windows will have to figure out how to not cause any trouble for its users who may be using their version of the gun emoji playfully while it will be translated into a more serious message. 9. Love Hotel Well to be honest, I've thought the 'H' on iOS stood for hospital and the heart symboled health. Apparently that's the exact opposite of what it meant. Windows does a much better job at representing this but they are both confusing. It wouldn't have killed them to spell out "hotel" on the building, you know. 10. Mobile Phone We get it, you love your own phone. 11. Donut Hmmm these are all very stereotypical of the interface they appear on. To be honest, Windows looks the least like a donut and I personally am not a fan. Android does a pretty good job and iOS is the most life like. I guess this one boils down to pure preference but it should be understood between each device fairly easily. I guess Windows doesn't like chocolate frosting. 12. Alien Monster Well these have very different connotations from the get-go. For iOS, most believe this emoji is a representation of an arcade game that you use with a joystick. For Android, however, it's actually alien monster that looks like an evil version of Pearl from Finding Nemo creepily ready to say "Awww you guys made me ink muhahahahahha!". We have an alien emoji already in iOS, why do we need this one? 13. Tennis Either way, they fit the bill and do a nice job at symbolizing. 10 for 10 on both.
Virtual Reality Lets You Hang With Totoro
British VR developers FirePanda have been hard at work the last few years. While most of the anticipation surrounding Virtual Reality has been game-centric, there are other VR developers who understand that there might be people interested in VR, but not in the gaming aspects of it. FirePanda are using VR for larger goals than just games (though they do have a game or two as well). They've used VR as an educational tool, for medical students to get some virtual hands-on practice in a RESUS room. They've also now begun rolling out little VR experiences taken directly from the films of Studio Ghibli. Check out this VR video: If you don't have any kind of VR headset like myself, this is a hard video to watch properly. The VR displays a mirrored image onto both of your eyes, hence the two displays in the video. Without the headset, this is just a strange video. But iconic. Everyone who's an anime fan has seen Totoro, and even if you haven't, you'd be familiar with the rotund spirit. So far, they have VR-d scenes from My Neighbor Totoro, Spirited Away, and Howl's Moving Castle. My personal favorite is the Howl's Moving Castle one, because the scene they picked is the fields outside of the house from Howl's childhood. That is definitively my favorite setting in the film, and the chance to experience it in VR is astounding to me. I don't have a VR headset yet, but if I ever get one, this is the first thing I'm gonna do. Check out all the anime VR stuff FirePanda has to offer here.

아이폰부터 애플워치까지 애플(Apple)이 다음 달 행사를 열고 주요 제품의 차세대 신작을 공개할 예정인 가운데, <블룸버그>가 아이폰과 아이패드, 맥북 프로 등의 세부 스펙을 보도했다. 또한 미국 IT 매체 <씨넷>은 지난 6일 “새 아이폰은 오는 9월 10일 발표할 것”이라고 예측하며 팬들의 기대감을 높였다. 이들이 분석한 바에 따르면, 지난 7년간 “애플은 아이폰을 미국 노동절과 같은 주 혹은 다음 주에 발표했다”라며 “올해는 9월 2일로 연휴 기간이 3일까지 이어질 수 있어 10일에 발표할 가능성이 유력하다”라고 전했다. 과연 실제 출시일이 언제일지 다가올 공식 발표를 기다려보며, 먼저 아래에서 예상되는 주요 제품의 상세 정보를 확인해보자. 아이폰 2017년부터 관례대로 애플은 올해 아이폰 XS와 XS Max에 이어 ‘프로’ 모델과 XR의 후속 모델을 포함해 총 3개의 새로운 아이폰을 선보일 예정이다. 아이폰 프로는 광각 렌즈를 포함해 트리플 카메라를 갖춰 고해상도 사진을 지원하고, 향상된 저조도 성능과 동영상 녹화 기능을 제공할 전망. 또한 무선 충전 기능이 도입되며, 다각도 페이스 ID 센서와 방수 성능도 향상될 것으로 추측된다. 아이폰 XR 후속 모델은 새로운 컬러 그린으로 출시되며, 최적의 줌 및 향상된 인물 모드를 위한 듀얼 카메라가 특징. 아이패드 애플은 올해 새로운 11인치, 12.9인치 아이패드 프로를 공개할 계획이다. <블룸버그>는 업그레이드된 카메라와 더 빠른 프로세스를 갖출 것으로 예측했으며 또한 새로운 제품을 위해 기존 9.7인치 모델의 생산을 중단할 것이라고 전했다. 맥북 프로 새로워진 맥북 프로는 16인치로 기존 15인치와 전체적인 사이즈는 비슷하지만, 화면 베젤 크기가 줄어들어 더 큰 화면을 갖추게 될 것으로 보인다. 전문가를 겨냥한 제품으로 새롭게 등장할 예정. 애플워치 새로운 세라믹 및 티타늄 모델로 선보일 애플워치 신작. 그동안 무성했던 소문처럼 새 모델은 워치 OS 6 소프트웨어 업데이트 및 새로운 케이스 마감을 활용해 출시될 것으로 예상된다. 더 자세한 내용은 <아이즈매거진> 링크에서
