Quick Take: TapTapSee for Android Works Just like the iPhone Version, But Should It?

Image Searcher has brought their popular image identification app TapTapSee to the Android platform so I decided to take it for a spin. For a first effort, the app looks quite polished and works as advertised. Taking advantage of some of the features of Android would make it even better. Read more

Google Files a Patent for Contact Lenses with Embedded Cameras

Earlier this year, Google announced that it was developing contact lenses that would be able to detect a person's glucose levels. Now, according to the Telegraph, they've gone one step further and filed a patin for contact lenses with imbedded microscopic cameras. The camera would allow the user to take a picture of whatever was in their direct line of sight, and they would be able to control the camera through blinking patterns. The sensors in the cameras could be able to detect light, color, objects, and even faces. This technology could be an amazing asset to a blind user by pairing the contact lenses with a mobile app for object recognition and even warning the user about upcoming obstacles or mobility hazards.

Security Alert: Paypal Fishing Scam

We wanted to alert you to a scam involving fake Paypal transaction notices via Email which was reported by one of our users. The message was pretending to be an official notice from Paypal that payment was sent for an ad. It included several red flags, however including this sentence which perhaps was the most obvious: "payment has been deducted from the buyer's account and has been "APPROVED"but will not be credited to your account until the shipment reference/tracking number is sent to us for shipment verification and this is done to secure both the buyer and the seller against any fraudulent activities."" Paypal would not hold your money until a tracking number has been sent. If you receive a payment notice from Paypal or another service and are unsure if it is legitimate, log into the website directly and look through your recent transactions to verify the purchase. While these types of scams are nothing new, it's always good to exercise due diligence when receiving Email related to a financial transaction to ensure it is not a fraud. The text of the message is below. Names have been removed for security. Read more

Qantas Offers Accessible In-Flight Entertainment on the iPad

David Woodbridge recently took a Qantas flight from Melbourne to Sydney. During the flight, he had the option of testing out the in-flight entertainment system on an iPad provided by the airline. He really didn't know what to expect, but he was optimistic. Much to his surprise, triple click home turned on VoiceOver, and the entertainment app was very compatible with VoiceOver. He even said in his blog post on AppleVis that he was so excited about the accessibility of the system that he lost all track of time. Since the iPad is the most popular tablet, hopefully other airlines will follow in Qantas's footsteps, and offer accessible in-flight entertainment for their customers. If you've experienced other in-flight entertainment options on other airlines that were accessible, tell us about your experience in the comments.

Will UEB Really Kill More Trees? We Used War and Peace to Find out

It has been said that Unified English Braille, or UEB, will cause braille to become bulkier and use much more paper. But is this really the case? We took one of the largest works of literature, War and Peace, and transcribed it from its 1,269 print pages to braille using both contracted and UEB formats on 8.5 by 11 inch paper. The results? It would take 3,458 pages to produce the contracted braille version while the UEB version consumes 3,535 pages. The difference is a miniscule 2.3 percent. Of course this is just one title, but perhaps the new braille standard won't be wasting as many trees as some had thought.

Selling Bose Companion 20 speakers for $100 Second Gen Brailler for $300, StandScan Pro$25

Hi, I'm selling the Bose Companion 20 speakers for 100 dollars. The reason I'm selling them is because I'm replacing them with another brand. Those speakers are originally $250 but I'm selling them only for $100. The second thing that I'm selling is a nice blue color second generation brailler. It is very light in weight and it is very easy to use. It has the six perkins style keys in silver, it has the space bar, it has the line spacer, and the back space all in silver. In addition it has a nice leather cover to protect it from dust and etc. So, I'm asking for $300 and regular price is like $1000. Also, I'm selling this is because I had purchased a braille display and I won't need this tool any more. The third thing that I'm selling is a very cool tool that is used with an iPhone and this tool you can use the OCR app like Prismo and Text Detective to capture the text and your iPhone will read the text for you. Never the less, this tool needs to be assembled and it is a very handy tool to use on the go. I'm selling the Stand Scan Pro for only $25. So, for any questions please call me at 832:421:1581, or by my email below.

Classical Guitar Pack for $300 OBO

This guitar has a solid spruce top, a Spanish-style classical neck, and beech wood back and sides. Unlike steel string acoustic guitars, this one is only 36 inches long and has a 24-inch scale, or vibrating string length.

It also includes a professionally installed pickup to amplify the mellow, natural acoustic sound. This pickup and installation is a $150 value. This package includes the following items: * pre-strung, 3/4 size classical guitar as described * Pre-installed pickup with strap button attachment * High quality gig bag with pocket, carrying handle and strap * Soundhole humidifier, easy to refill by touch only * Tuning reference mp3 * String change guide mp3 * Resources list including audio courses and where to buy strings If you've always wanted to play guitar without losing valuable finger sensitivity, this is the guitar for you. Audio courses are readily available but must be purchased separately; a list of these is included in the package. Asking $300 or best offer. Shipping is via UPS Ground in the continental U.S. only. PayPal preferred. Feel free to email with questions or to request mp3 sound samples of this guitar.

Blue 32GB Samsung Galaxy S III, realtree camo Otterbox Defender case - $250 w/ shipping

I have for sale a blue 32GB T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S III, model SGH-T999, in excellent condition. It's been kept in a smoke-free environment and in the Otterbox case since I got it around February 2013. Included with the purchase will be the phone, the box and all items that were in it when I got it. I am also including the realtree camo Otterbox Defender. It is in good condition. The bottom right corner of the outer portion of the case is a little loose, but it's hardly noticeable. The current software (or ROM) on the phone is the latest Samsung has to offer. Android Jelly Bean 4.3. I can root the Samsung ROM or put an alternate ROM on the phone if requested for an additional fee of $15. I am asking $250 via PayPal for the phone and case, including shipping. US only, please.

MacBook Pro $900 and Acer Iconia W3 Windows 8 Tablet $175

I have a Mid 2010 13 inch Macbook Pro for sale. It will come in its original box, with original disks, though I will install a fresh copy of Mavericks, (the latest version of Mac OSX). I purchased this Mac in February of 2011, and it is in excellent condition. The original 256 gig hard drive has been upgraded to a 256 gig SSD, which I will leave in the machine, so it runs nice and fast. As for specs, it's got a dual core processor clocked at 2.4 GHZ, 2 USB 2.0 ports, an SD card slot, 4 gigs of RAM (upgradable to 8), and a slot-loading optical drive, as well as bluetooth and WiFi. I am asking $900, but I am willing to negotiate this price. I also have an Acer Iconia W3 tablet. This tablet runs the full version of Windows 8. It has an 8.1 inch display, an Intel Atom dual core processor clocked at 1.8 GHZ, 2 gigs of RAM, and a 32 gig SSD and a micro SD card slot. I will also include the card with the activation code for Microsoft Office 2013. It will be shipped in the original box. I will also include 2 cases. One of which serves as a stand, and the other has a built-in keyboard that connects to the tablet via USB. I am asking $175 for the whole package. Finally, I have a Trekker Breeze for sale. This unit has only been taken out of the box about 4 or 5 times. Like my other products, it will be shipped in the original box, with all original accessories and maps. I would like $500 for this. Please send all offers, questions, comments, etc to my email at: jmcahs@yahoo.com Or, feel free to shoot me a text or call at: 2108827443 If you call or text me, please mention this ad.
