Computer Gadgets I Can Live Without

Standard

Living in Las Vegas gives one the opportunity to witness first hand what is happening in the world, and this city is a stage for launching what is hot and new. CES The Computer Electronic Show showcases each year the hot items. Our news stations each night showcase the items one would covet. This year one station showed clips from yesteryear, like the debut of the DVD player, Bluetooth technology, and flat screen televisions. Yes they were revolutions and I always wonder which item will become the next “must have” 

The Geonaute is a 360-degree camera that is waterproof, shockproof and can record for two hours. If I were a filmmaker this would be a great product, but at $499 I will stick with my phone and walk in a circle. There is another product from Eureka Park Phone Soap, it is a UV light to sanitize your phone, this is $50. I would rather wash my hands and not rub my eyes, pick my nose, or put my fingers in my mouth. I cannot see myself putting a mini tanning device in my purse to clean my phone. I would leave it at work, or at home. I would be upset if someone coughed in their hand then touched my phone the device would not be near. There are many items I could list, but the next one terrifies me!

The Yellow Jacket stun gun phone! Yes your iPhone and soon Android can be used to deliver 950,000 volts to a co-worker, a family member, an innocent person in a line who annoys you, imagine the possibilities! They also began to market them in Mexico City, do not worry about only being gunned down in Mexico, but if you haggle too much over a price, you may hear, “BBBZZZZzzz” then feel the pain! We thought we had issues with gun control, no worries the stun gun is here. Bullying in school can be taken to an all new level.  Do people really feel the need to carry a stun gun?

 

Every six months or so I go through my phone and delete the apps I really do not use. I smile when I get to the Flashlight, yes I use it, especially when I am at the dog park at night and I need to find Henry’s poo, yes the light is a must have. The DVR, I still do not have, and I am happy to say my life is no longer TV dependent, and most things I miss I find online. Yes my phone was at the show back in the day, that is a must have!

My final thoughts, the phone is bright yellow, so if you see someone holding that bright yellow phone and they coming at you, hopefully you have good Karma and they are inviting you for coffee. No, I will not be buying one. I can only imagine the moment I would need to use it, it would be the day I had my big purse, and often when it is ringing I cannot find the phone anyways.

  1. I am not sure how they manage the technicalities of acquiring & delivering 1 KW of electricity using an iPhone/Android. If that is true, the ‘stun gun’ is the next revolution in energy generation & storage! 😛

    • Imagine using the stun gun to find it depleted your battery and you cannot call the police! You are so right, if they have that technology I should not have to charge my phone but once a week. Now that would be the gadget I would pay for!

    • Please accept my apologies….this is a late response! Surgeries and life took me away. LOL I know my iPhone 4 would never have enough life, Maybe they will have a built in recharge if one uses the gun.
