If there’s one piece of technology my wife likes around the house its a label printer. We label bins, cables, school supplies, kids cups, and a variety of other things. By today’s standards a basic label printer isn’t considered a high tech gadget, but once you pair that label printer via Bluetooth and a smartphone app, then you got something worthy to call techy. Meet the Epson LW-600P Bluetooth Label Printer. A compact, versatile bluetooth connected smart label printer. Let’s run down some of the key features real quick.

Falcon 9 R Rocket Fins

SpaceX: Falcon 9-R Rocket Shows Some Fin!

Falcon-9-R-Rocket-Fins

Elon Musk famously said – and I paraphrase: show a little ankle but not the whole leg.  SpaceX has recently shown us a little ‘Fin.’

Seems SpaceX has perfected rocket landings to the point that they’ve got time to work on finesse. New footage of a Falcon 9-R test flight at their McGregor TX site shows their test vehicle has ‘evolved’ fins which pop out of the sides like Tesla door handles. These paddles appear for attitude control and are deployed during descent. This should be a step up from the previous stopgap technique which involved bursts of gas from cold thrusters.

Digital_Lego_Fusion

LEGO have been a staple form of play in many children’s lives.  I definitely built more than my share of LEGO castles, pirate ships, etc. back when I was a kid.  In the last few years, LEGO have branched out into movie themed video games, and even a LEGO themed movie, many of which have met with great success and excellent reviews.  Now, LEGO looks to blur some of the lines between their building blocks and their games with LEGO Fusion.  Read on for more information on the new way to LEGO.

Nomad Follows Up Its NomadKey With The NomadClip

Nomad Clip Akron

Back in January, coming out of CES 2014, we reviewed the Nomad ChargeKey. A short and sturdy charging cable that fit right on your key chain.

Techaeris

The Charge Key is an ultra small USB/Lightning connector charging solution for your phone. Charge Key is about the size of an average key and even fits on your key chain. Having something this small is great when you either have forgotten your external battery, forgotten your charging cable or simply do not want to be weighed down with extra bulk.

Earlier this morning, the Canadian Supreme Court ruled on a recent case before them which examined the legality of voluntary warrantless disclosure of subscriber information from an internet service provider (ISP) to law enforcement. Matthew David Spencer was charged and convicted after a police officer tracked illegal child pornography file downloads to his IP address. The police officer was able to obtain Spencer’s real identity – without a search warrant – by asking his ISP (Shaw) for the customer information attached to that IP address which then allowed the police to track Spencer down.

Commercial Drones – Coming Soon To A Sky Near You

courtesy aviationweek.com

This is the first time ever that a drone has been granted the permission by the FAA to carry out a commercial mission. Two aircraft have gained the FAA’s certification, the Scan Eagle and Aerovironment’s Puma. Oil giant BP has been working with Aerovironment, a drone manufacturer, to fly an Aerovironment Puma AE on survey missions in Alaska. This decision comes about two years after congress mandated that the FAA construct a plan to incorporate unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) into civil airspace before 2015. While there is still no provision for any UAS to operate over the continental US, the fact that there is now a precedent set for the flight of commercial drones will encourage new UAS to emerge in all industries where there is a reasonable use.
