BlueAnt updates Q1 with A2DP support

Posted in BlueAnt by Shane McGlaun on December 2nd, 2009

blueantq1-sbI like it when manufactures add new features to the gadgets I own via firmware updates and don’t charge me any more money to get the features. This is what Apple does for the iPhone, Sony for the PS3, and now BlueAnt is doing the same thing for its Q1 Bluetooth headset.

The Q1 headset already has a lot of features, but the device lacked A2DP support for streaming audio from a smartphone to the headset. Streaming music might not be that great considering the headset is not stereo, but I am all for streaming directions from my iPhone navigation app.

niobluetoothThieves suck. You should be able to track down the people who steal your stuff and kick them repeatedly in the gonads. A new antitheft device that uses Bluetooth called Nio is now available in the US for purchase through Amazon.

The Nio tags can be used to protect all sorts of electronic devices like mobile phones, laptops and the data on the devices. The tags can be set with a security zone of up to 80 feet and when the devices move more than the set distance apart both the tag and the device it is protecting produce an audible alarm.

Sony VGP-BMS80 VAIO Bluetooth Laser MouseSony’s VGP-BMS80 VAIO Bluetooth Laser Mouse features technology that is a little more serious than a typical mouse. This guy will give you wireless control of your PS3 or PC as long as it’s within range.

An optical sensor on top lets you use the mouse in the air like a trackpad, making it great for presentations. I guess you could say that this is the Vaio version of a wii-mote. It will cost you $80.

Make a Bluetooth Star Trek Communicator

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on November 7th, 2009

Make a Bluetooth Star Trek CommunicatorIt’s the perfect weekend to build your very own Bluetooth Star Trek communicator, so you can stay in touch with the folks on the Enterprise. You don’t want to get stranded on a foreign planet do you? This project will take a little skill, so just be aware that you’ll have to cut a circuit-board, drill some holes, add a serial port, a Bluetooth module, and a microcontroller.

However, when it’s done you’ll be placing and answering calls the same way James Tiberius Kirk does. If you want to give it a go hit the link to get full step-by-step instructions.

First images of RIM’s BlackBerry watch

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on October 19th, 2009

First images of RIM's BlackBerry watchRemember that rumor about RIM working on a Bluetooth watch to accompany its phones? Well looky here. We may now have the first real renderings of the final product. It may be called the “inPulse” and it features an OLED display, real-time message preview, and probably caller ID.

Looks like the watch isn’t being developed by RIM. Instead, work has been farmed out to a company dedicated to the BlackBerry aftermarket. An official announcement is coming “soon.” Thing is, Bluetooth watches haven’t been great sellers, but maybe more compatibility with the Blackberry is the trick.

nectarretractableBluetooth headsets are a great way to allow the driver to keep focused more on driving rather than dialing and holding their phone. The problem is that you typically have to take your eyes off the road to put the headset on.

Nectar has announced a new line of accessories that includes the BlueClip Retractable and the BlueClip Necklace. The retractable clip is available in several different colors and is sort of like one of those retractable key rings janitors favor.

BlueWatchDog: Bluetooth personal anti-theft device

BlueWatchDog: Bluetooth personal anti-theft deviceBluetooth technology is great for handling wireless, hands-free calls, but I bet you’ve never used it like this. Think of this one as a virtual perimeter device. The BlueWatchDog Personal Anti-Theft Alarm will alert you on your cellphone if someone steals your belongings, like say your wallet and takes them outside of your specific radius.

Basically the alarm will sound in an ear piercing shriek that hopefully will make the thief scared and drop what they are stealing…. Only to have them break it if it’s an expensive device no doubt.
