Easy Virtual Tax Prep

Biz Report

2016 is in the books and you know what that means. It’s time to get those taxes done. Now traditionally there are two ways you can go about doing that. You can either file them yourself online and wonder if you’re doing them correctly  or take all your documents over to a tax prep franchise. Both have their costs and benefits. But what if there was a way to combine these two into one convenient platform. Check out Taxhub.

Taxhub is a virtual income tax preparation platform that allows you to share your tax documents with a CPA just as you would in person. The idea here is to combine the convenience and low price of an online tax filing with the peace of mind that comes with a professionally prepared tax return. Here’s how it works. Log on through your web browser or the taxhub app. Upload your tax documents. A simple picture of the docs will suffice. Next schedule a call or video conference with a CPA so then can ask any relevant questions and consult on any needed points. Once they’re done you’ll receive an e-mail that prompts you to verify your identity through an IRS-approved identify verification method. That’s all there is to it. The best part, because they don’t have thousands of offices like most tax prep franchise, you will pay around half of what you would normally pay to have your taxes prepared.

So, if you’re ready to get started on your taxes head to gettaxhub.com today to get started!

Turn Your Headphone Wireless

CES

If Apple’s new AirPods are any indicator, the future of headphones is wireless. But what do you do with all those wired headphones that still work perfectly fine? You’re not just going to throw them away when you paid good money for them, right?  The solution is Tunai’s CLIP.

Tunai is a company that works to create innovative products which is different from what’s in the market. Their newest product, CLIP, allows you to turn your headphones into a wireless product. Here’s how it works. You insert your headphones into the CLIP’s auxiliary jack, instantly turning your headphones into a Bluetooth headset. Now just clip the CLIP onto your shirt or jacket. Press the CLIP to wake up your phone’s voice assistant or to operate any of the normal controls like rewind, skip forward, play or answer calls. Not only does the device convert your wired headphones to Bluetooth, the cord manager can hide extra wires and make you look neat. Additionally, the CLIP features a high definition mic to replace the one on your headphones. CLIP can also be used as Bluetooth mic for wireless voice recording.

“CLIP preserves the authenticity of sound using an advanced audio rebuild technology we call ‘Sound Revitalization Technology (SRT)’ . Instead of the traditional low quality audio compression SBC technology, CLIP supports AAC & MP3 to minimize distortion when sound is compressed for streaming over the air. Our unique patent pending “Sound Revitalization Technology, SRT” scans the received audio data, and rebuilds the distorted audio.”

To purchase the CLIP head to Amazon or their website at tunai-creative.com today.

CES

While we love checking out new companies here at CES, one of our favorite things to do is to catch up with friends that have updated their technology over the past year.  One company that’s added exciting enhancements to their residential product lines is Interlogix, especially with the UltraSync SmartHome system.

We have taken a security platform that’s been available for a couple of years and we’ve really merged smart home capabilities into that. So, not only can you be notified if someone breaks into your home or if a fire goes off in your house, someone breaks a window.. but you can also have the ability to turn on lights, unlock doors, you can view cameras, all those things from your UltraSync SmartHome app. So, some new enhancements that we’ve made and that we’re showing here at CES are selectable backgrounds, we have some backgrounds that consumers can put on their app that make it look a little more consumer friendly – something that they like. They can also take their own photos and upload those onto the app. And then we are also talking to people about using timers and delays, and sunrise and sunset as ways to make their automations more helpful and user friendly.” -Warren Hill, Product Marketing Leader, Interlogix

“Ideal for modern families, the UltraSync SmartHome brings smart, cost-effective security and lifestyle management into your home and at your fingertips. Reliable and convenient, UltraSync lets you synchronize your home systems with your day-to-day activities and create customized scenarios so that your home responds to your unique schedule.”

MagniSmartech Smart Mattress

Tech Report

As we get older it seems we’re on an eternal quest to find the perfect mattress for our nighttime z’s. Maybe we need more than just a comfortable mattress. How about one that has integrated technology to help get that peaceful night’s sleep?  Well, Magniflex is an Italian manufacturer with over 50 years of experience in the mattress industry as a business to business operation.

Their unique MagniSmartech integrated sleep system has taken their mattresses to the next level. MagniSmartech allows you to learn more about your sleep through the use of sensors that gather data about you and your sleep environment in real time. The data and suggestions are available to view the next day in the accompanying app or through a web browser. The sensors track many parameters like the hours slept, your average heart rate and respiratory rate and their fluctuations, as well as environmental data like the brightness and noise level of your room. MagniSmartech also features an innovative soft wake up function as well as chromotherapy using LED, but probably the most unique feature is the anti-snore function, which automatically recognizes when you’re snoring and then goes into action adjusting the position of the bed until the snoring stops, at which point it returns to the original position.

Smart bed not for you? They have every other kind of mattress that you could imagine and desire. Including pet beds, you know how much we love our pets here at NewsWatch. They even have accessories for your office or travel if you’re interested.
