sOccket soccer ball makes power from getting kicked

Posted in Green Gadget by Shane McGlaun on June 14th, 2010

I like gadgets that are functional in one aspect and then can do something completely unexpected as well. Such is the case with the sOccket. It looks like your average soccer ball and then it has a completely unexpected use — powering a small LED light.

The sOccket soccer ball has some sort of tech inside the normal looking ball that is able to generate electricity from the force of kids kicking it around and store that power for later use. This is important because many kids in countries like Africa don’t have power.

sidekicklxSmartphones are booming today despite the fact that the economy is worse than sitting through an episode of Dancing with the Stars (ok so maybe the economy isn’t that bad). Despite the fact that computer and electronics sales are down, sales of smartphones are still growing nicely. Some analysts say that’s because consumers are looking to devices that can fill multiple needs, which the average smartphone can.

T-Mobile users will soon have a new smartphone that they can choose called the Sidekick LX. The LX is T-Mobile’s first 3G enabled Sidekick and integrates social networking applications Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter in a bundle. Other features include built-in GPS, a 3.2-megapixel camera, and a integrated music player.

The PSP and Sidekick mate, make good looking kid
Samuel Lau took both devices, put on some Barry White, uncorked the champagne, then tucked them in bed together and closed the door. The result is a somewhat sexy sliding screen incarnation with a QWERTY keyboard underneath.

Unfortunately this baby is just a concept. Still pretty sweet. It’s a concept that comes with a 3.2 megapixel camera in back, a webcam in front, motion sensors, touch screen display, even geo-tracking so you can stalk other PSP owners. I wish this existed.

Microsoft to buy Sidekick maker Danger

Posted in News by Darrin Olson on February 13th, 2008

Microsoft to buy Danger, maker of the SidekickMicrosoft announced Monday that it is going to acquire Danger, software maker for the popular consumer-targeted Sidekick mobile device. Reportedly the purchase came after months of negotiations, with Danger receiving a number of different offers and Microsoft doubling their original offer to keep Danger out of others hands. That offer has been rumored to be as much as $500 million, but no official terms of the deal have been revealed.

While Microsoft has done well making software for smartphones the company mostly targets business users and fewer general consumers. The Sidekick from Danger is almost the opposite and is aimed at the younger consumer-based market in which Microsoft seems to be keen on getting into. Microsoft also recently made a $44.6 billion offer to Yahoo to help build a larger online, consumer-facing presence and could have Danger in mind to be part of that overall strategy, working against dominate competitive figures like Google and RIM.

The combination also offers an increasingly exciting set of solutions for consumers, publishers and advertisers while becoming better positioned to compete in the online services market.
