CES2014: June- Technology To Keep You Looking Beautiful

January 14, 2014 | by Tracy Lewis

CES 2014 was not just about 3D printing, curved TVs, or the latest tablet. There was also a huge focus on items to help you get healthy and stay healthy. One of the newest products by the Netatmo company is called June. June is a fashionable device that along with its companion app tracks your exposure to the sun. When spending the afternoon at the pool or beach we are more aware of how much sun we are getting, but most sun damage comes from every day exposure.

Wirefly Goes Hands-on With New Samsung Galaxy NotePro & TabPro At CES2014

January 13, 2014 | by Scott Lewis

While at CES 2014, I was able to get my hands on some great new technology. One of my favorites was the new lineup of Samsung tablets. The lineup consists of a new Galaxy NotePro 12.2, TabPro 12.2, TabPro, 10.1, and TabPro 8.4.

The NotePro 12.2 and TabPro 12.2 are almost identical except that the NotePro comes equipped with the integrated Samsung S-Pen. The S-Pen is a stylus that helps you to navigate the tablet without using your fingertips and allows you to do some special tricks. When you remove the S-Pen from its home on the top right-hand side of the NotePro 12.2, the Air Command window pops up on the display. From the Air Command window you can write memos to yourself, snip a picture from the display to save or share, search from content stored on your device, and even... read more
