How Steve Jobs Revolutionized One Industry

Now that we are the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, it’s hard to believe how far we have come along with these phones. Did you know that the original iPhone, also known as iPhone 1, iPhone 1G, and iPhone 2) came out in January 2007, after years and years of speculations? Hard to believe it was about 8 years ago.

Almost a year later, Apple introduced the iPhone 3G and the original iPhone is now considered to be obsolete. Rightfully so as we are well into the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

As Apple launches have come to be known for, the original iPhone also caused a lot of media attention; customers were lined up outside Apple and AT&T stores to get their hands on the precious device.

It’s funny to think that Steve Jobs imagined a device that would become this popular all over the world. Also extremely hard to process the fact that Jobs has passed away, yet had such a meaningful (and technological) impact… globally. In fact, Jobs remained true to this word when he introduced his world changing, innovative device: “I have been looking forward to this for two and a half years. Today, Apple is going to reinvent the phone.”

Boy, he knew that, now, didn’t he?

Just like that, the cell phone industry changed. Now, people had access to a mini “laptop” with the phone in their hands. Think about it: the ability to connect to the internet, browse, text message, along with tons of other applications (creating a multi-million dollar application business along the way!), games, and the ability to make video calls or regular calls.

The iPhone became infamous. While Android is loved as well, iPhone supporters are extremely loyal to the brand. Want an iPhone charger or headphones? How about a dock? There are tons of accessories that make the iPhone a lot of fun to use. Heck, some people don’t own tvs nor laptops, so they watch Netflix on their iPhones. iTunes is also on iPhone and almost everyone with one uses it for exercising purposes.

There are some phenomenal video editing and image editing apps as well as the American Sign Language app. How many worlds have been connected due to the creativity of Steve Jobs? Just the vision of man.

The man is so inspiring that Banksy recently created an art piece based on him. Of course, a movie was filmed and released shortly after his death and did well. To learn more about Jobs or Apple, all you need to do is do a simple search on the internet.

Kayaking “Fabric” Technology Allows For Inflatable Options!

Okay, so you obviously know of kayaking but did you know, due to the technology in so-called “fabric”, now you can purchase such a thing as an inflatable kayak? In fact, these have been on the market for YEARS.

While searching for inflatable kayak reviews, I came across some jaw dropping options. For instance, if you’re not an avid kayaker, you can drop around $150 and get a cheap inflatable option; if you’re an avid fisher, you can go for a fishing kayak. Heck, you can go for a tandem kayak or something really tough and durable like the AHTK kayaks!

Sure, you could drop a few hundred or grand on a hard shelled option but what if you live in a tight spot? Do you have storage room? Furthermore, you gotta think about how you’ll transport it for fun times.

If you are a beginner and curious about kayaking, give the inflatable options a shot. Once you’re comfortable, you can always upgrade to a better option.

And no, these babies, due to modern technology, are made with durable materials. Extremely durable fabric. Some are designed to be used in calm waters while others can be used in tougher conditions.

Make sure you spend time reading reviews in details so you can buy the most perfect option. In fact, if you live in an apartment and space is a concern, these inflatable kayaks can be inflated within 10 minutes and deflated the same way. These things are so durable that even after decent scratches, these things can last a long time, meaning they don’t pop and are quite the safe option. In fact, you can check out your options according to how much weight they can take and how much room there is in one of these. In fact, check out this option:

As aesthetically pleasing as some of these look, make sure you review every aspect before purchasing one. Better yet, if a friend has one, test drive it! Or perhaps you’ve heard of the beastly new “folding kayak” called the Oru… 😉

Transhumanism: Now You Can Insert LEDs Into Your Hands!

Okay, so if the idea of merging chips, robotics, and humans (think Terminator long term) makes you shudder, then you may not want to read this article or view the image we are about to show here:

Known as the “Northstar V1” chip, this chip is the size of a large coin (very large…) and has been implanted on the back of hands of three people. The chip was developed by Grindhouse Wetware which is composed of programmers, engineers and enthusiasts.

What are the long term implications of this experiment? Are the test subjects vulnerable to any infections?

What if an object hits them in that spot? Ouch!
