Nokia Sleep Sensing and Home Automation Pad hands-on

For techies and casual tech followers alike, there’s always something a little nostalgic and endearing about the release of a new Nokia device. These days the phones are still rolling out under HMD Global, but separately, under Nokia’s official banner, and in conjunction with the company’s acquisition of Withings, the Nokia digital health business continues to offer a decent ecosystem of devices.

Today we’re taking a look at one such device whose primary focus is sleep tracking, and secondarily, home automation – the Nokia Sleep Sensing & Home Automation Pad. Nokia’s never been one for …

Apple AirPower Qi pad seen in Vienna airport turns out to be a fake

A traveler arriving back home in Vienna, snapped photos of what looked like Apple’s multiple device Qi charging pad on sale at the Vienna Airport arrival hall. The gentleman, a man named Peter Allan, tweeted the photo and stated that the AirPower Qi charging pad was priced at $200 at the airport. As it turns out, it was a fake. According to a report published on Sunday afternoon, some of the packaging on other Apple products seen in the photo appears off, which indicates that the products inside them are not legit. For example, the Chinese label on the box for the Lightning to headphone jack adapter …

When will tampon users stop shaming pad users?

TwitterFacebook

For far too long, people who use menstrual pads have been doubly stigmatized: first for their periods, and second, for their feminine hygiene product of choice.

“Why do you want to wear an adult diaper?” tampon loyalists will ask. They are confident that their hygiene product is the superior one. They believe those who choose pads are weak, anachronistic, regressive. Pad users, in their minds, are blind to social norms and addicted to the pleasures of the napkin, a disposable mattress for the vagina. 

Times have changed. It is 2018: time for menstrual pad users to reclaim their rightful role at the apex of the feminine hygiene product hierarchy and stand up for what they believe in. (Unless it’s the first day of their period, in which case, please take a chair.) Read more…

Anker PowerWave 7.5 Charging Pad and Stand Review


Wireless chargers have become a dime-a-dozen product – seemingly overnight. Whether it be a result of the sign-off by mobile juggernaut Apple or simply of the advances in such technology, or both, wireless chargers are here to stay, and it’s becoming hard to tell which ones are worth your money.

One thing’s for sure though: no one wants a slow charger. Apple, as usual, has its scarce selection of fast wireless chargers it chooses to sell on its website – two third-party charging pads, priced at $60 – and Samsung has its own fast-charging wireless pad which flips up into a stand and sells …

Similar to the DeX Station, the Samsung DeX Pad will let you dock your Galaxy phone, and connect it to an external monitor and other peripherals, like a keyboard or a mouse, basically turning the handset into a PC of some sorts. However, the upcoming DeX Pad reportedly also allows you to …
