These days I feel like I can never have too many sync/charge cables. Granted, my situation is a little unusual in that I tend to have lots of different gadgets floating around the house, but it's not uncommon for a person to have a couple different devices with different kinds of ports.
Of course, with multiple ports comes the hassle of multiple cables. That's why I prefer a small one-size-fits-all solution. Like this one: EverBuying.com has a 5-in-1 "noodle style" sync/charge cable for $3.12 shipped. That's about the lowest price I'… Read more
At the 2013 International CES, Ford brazenly offered Sync, its in-car infotainment platform, up to anybody who wanted it. As of September, nobody has taken the company up on the offer, but that isn't stopping it from moving forward. The Blue Oval has just announced the successful acquisition of Detroit-based startup Livio.
Livio, which formerly made its own line of hardware accessories under the Livio Radio brand, offers a solution called Livio Connect, designed to make smartphone interaction (the art of pairing your handset with your car) simpler for developers and easier for users.
Connectivity is an increasingly important … Read more
Contacts Sync and Transfer is designed to work around the often cumbersome integration of multiple sets of contacts on your iPhone.

With this app you can back up and restore all of your contacts in a single interface.
When you first load Contacts Sync & Transfer, you will be prompted to create an account. … Read more
Ford Motor, trying to show off its electronics credentials, on Friday unveiled a new concept vehicle with technologies that Chief Executive Alan Mulally said will eventually lead to self-driving cars.
The concept car, a modified version of the compact S-Max that Ford revealed at the IFA electronics show in Berlin, has a variety of digital-era advancements:
Vehicle-to-vehicle communications technology, a variation of Wi-Fi networking, that lets cars communicate directly to discover risks like a stopped vehicle around a blind curve.
A system that uses radar and cameras to watch for pedestrians and apply the brakes if a collision is imminent. … Read more
FreeFileSync Portable lets you compare and synchronize files and folders, but it doesn't offer much in the way of advanced goodies as there's no way to compress, re-organize, or clean up your files as you're copying them. Still, if you just want a slightly better version of Windows' drag-and-drop system, this program will probably meet your needs.
Though this includes portable right in the name, it checks in at 24MB. That's not massive by any means, but portable programs tend to be less than 1MB. It makes it easier to carry them on a portable drive, … Read more
In 2007, Facebook had been open to the public for less than a year, but a troublesome tendency -- now commonplace among nearly every college-age teenager in the country -- had already begun emerging: The moment incoming students received their roommate's name, they would type it into Facebook to learn all they could.
That singular action -- which often inspires overbearing parents and judgmental teens to flood housing offices with complaints -- led Robert Castellucci to co-found RoomSync, a pre-eminent roommate pairing service that operates right within Facebook.

Look, I'm not terribly partial to babies.
I'm no more partial to seeing them in ads. Yes, those E-Trade babblers were quite sweet, but I would no more recommend a baby ad than I would recommend dating someone who wears Crocs.
Oddly, then, I came across this new ad from Samsung, in which the star is another little bald person, and I reluctantly find it endearing.
The ad is for a vacuum cleaner. I think I own a vacuum cleaner, though I'm not sure where it is.
Yet here the creators have found a way to make … Read more
SyncTwoFolders for Mac creates an identical copy of a folder for other uses. Its interface is easy to use and its tutorial breaks it down well enough for even the most inexperienced users to get right to work.
After its initial startup, SyncTwoFolders for Mac brings up a window with basic instructions and a warning to use caution to prevent the loss of data. It also explains the simulation function, allowing the user to double-check the output before initiating the program. The actual program includes a simple menu with a button to select the source and target folder using a … Read more
