Tittle for Parents – Monitor Your Child’s Mobile Device Usage

Tech Report

The rampant usage of phones and tablets is undeniable. Furthermore, it interferes with the relationships parents have with their kids. What parents need is a way to regulate their children’s usage so it doesn’t become addictive.

And that’s where Tittle for Parents comes in.

Being a parent, you’ve probably seen how quickly your child may drift away from you and how easily distracted they get with their mobile devices. There’s less communication and when you may talk, it may just be going through one ear and out the other.

Tittle for Parents wanted a button to remotely turn off their devices and hopefully regain the family time that used to be had.

Tittle for Parents also wanted to provide parents with a smart tool that could easily limit app access at any time or with a fixed schedule such as during school or meal times.

Parents can set up multiple schedules to limit device usage during different times of the day.

Parents can also block access to apps like social media and games and allow selected apps that are educational and encourages learning.

With Tittle’s specifically designed browser, it offers parents the capability to review and block websites that your children may have visited.

You’ll be able to see how long they spend on each app and review any that they download. There’s also a tracking feature that lets you keep tabs on your child’s location.

IWN – Giving Those in Underserved Areas WiFi Access

Tech Report

Living in a city like New York or Washington, D.C., you’ll become conditioned to the luxury of WiFi. We take its availability for granted when we go home, walk into a cafe, or connect to the free WiFi on the subway.

But what about the areas outside of the city-rural areas that are underserved and don’t have access to WiFi?

Well, that’s where Intelligent Wireless Networks (IWN) comes into play.

Intelligent Wireless Networks is granting people access to whatever it is they need or want to do. The first line of access IWN provides is basic high-speed internet connectivity. But beyond that, they give people access to perhaps growing education, an opportunity to earn money, and now offering people the ability to play every day and build a business doing so.

IWN has worked for the last couple of years with the people of the community trying to educate as to why they need to get involved and why they need to buy into this community-based WiFi network model that they’ve created.

The level of development that IWN has experienced has been based on adoption rate. Getting into the communities on a localized level and educating them on why they need to participate has been so critical.

If someone is interested in building or taking the reigns in their community for a localized WiFi network, it’s simple to get started.

If you’d like to learn more about how IWN is providing underserved areas with wifi, head on over to intelligentwirelessnetworks.com today.

 

Third Reality – Simply Automate Your Home

Consumer Update

We understand how popular smart home technology is. But what if you didn’t want to go through all the complicated electrical work? That’s exactly where Third Reality comes in with their product, RealitySwitch Plus.

Third Reality is a company all about making home automation devices. The ‘Reality Switch’ is a device that they’re currently shipping and allows you to connect the switch to your Amazon devices and where it can tell it to turn your lights on or off.

But most significantly, the new device they have coming out is ‘Reality Switch Plus’ which lets you stay connected to any of the existing Amazon devices.

The most fundamental part of their solution is simple to install. And for anyone who’s buying a switch and who wants to automate their home; this can be the solution you’ve been searching for. And even better, you can totally do it yourself – no electrician or third party.

Being able to DIY certainly is less daunting, isn’t it? And though a new switch in many cases would cost you $30 or $40 for you to purchase, it would cost you an additional $100 to have it installed.

With Third Reality’s device, you can also have a remote with your app. For instance, if you’re away from the house and wish to turn the lights on or off, pull up your app and check the statues to turn them on or off remotely.

Instagram Drops New Features and Kills One

A couple of weeks ago Instagram released a surprising new feature called Stories, which allows you to share all the moments throughout your day. Similar to rival app Snapchat, stories consists of mini video clips or pictures stay up for 24 hours, appearing as a mini slideshow or video series. Facebook, Instagram’s parent company, attempted to purchase Snapchat a couple of years ago. They couldn’t buy the app, but that doesn’t mean that they couldn’t integrate their ideas in their app.

But Instagram released a feature that Snapchat doesn’t have: zooming. This gives the users the ability to zoom in on other users’ photos and videos by pinching the post. Unfortunately, this feature is only available for iPhone users, but they say it will be released soon on Android.

The new zoom feature allows marketers to get even more creative with content on Instagram. Instead of watching a video in one perspective, users can now zoom around and choose a certain focus to view.

Instagram will also take advantage of the new iPhone 7 plus dual camera. Courtesy of Tech Crunch.

The problem with this new feature is that Instagram images content can look grainy if you zoom in too much. But this isn’t stopping users from using this new feature—there’s even a trending hashtag about Instagram’s latest addition.

These features are here to stay, but the photo map feature is on its way out. This classic feature allowed you to see a map of where a users’ photos were taken (if you allowed it). Instagram said in a statement to Mashable, “Photo Map was not widely used, so we’ve decided to remove the feature and focus on other priorities.”

So what are your thoughts? Are you sad to see the Photo-Map feature go? Or are you happy that you can zoom? Tweet us your thoughts @NewsWatchTV.

4 Things to Expect From Nintendo’s New Console

mario

So Nintendo has been teasing us for a while now by keeping the details of their new console, the NX, pretty much confidential. Finally, we’ve gotten more of an idea of what to expect in the NX thanks to a number of sources that have confirmed details to Eurogamer.

  1. It’s a totally new concept – The NX is going to be pretty different than what we’ve seen from Nintendo in the past. This new console will be both a handheld and a console you can play on your TV. Basically, the NX as a whole will work as a handheld console that has its own display, which doesn’t sound too far out there – Nintendo has always been known for handheld consoles. Well, what sets it apart is the two controller sections on the side, that can either be attached or detached as needed.

  2. It’s basically 2 consoles – Nintendo knows that sometimes you get home and want to play on the big screen, and the NX totally reflects that. Yup, you can connect the console directly to your TV through the dock station. So it’s kind of like 2-consoles-in-1.
  3. It’s going back to cartridges – Physical media will be in the form of cartridges instead of discs, although we’re pretty sure that you’ll still have the option of digital downloads. Sources have also shut down the rumors that the system will run on Android. Instead, we’re expecting the NX to run on a totally new operating system from Nintendo.
  4. It’ll be very different from Nintendo’s previous consoles – Nintendo won’t confirm everything until the console’s unveiling, which is expected to be this September. However, one thing that Nintendo has made apparent is that this will be much different than the Wii and Wii U. Nintendo president, Tatsumi Kimishima stated, “It’s something unique and different. It’s something where we have to move away from those platforms in order to make it something that will appeal to our consumer base.”

 

Regardless, it’ll be interesting to see a new console from Nintendo and the secrecy that has been behind it is only building up the suspense.
