Apple 4.7in iPhone 6 And 5.5 iPhone 6 Plus Smartphones With Retina HD Display
I initially intended this article to be rant longer post about the latest iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus and how Apple made history with its famous smartphone line. But finally, as the net is full of Apple histories and tons of posts pro and contra their latest models, I decided to compile it in a couple of phrases and let go on the subject …

While I love how Apple designs their gadgets with that fancy, metallic finish, I know how reliable and fast their smartphones and tablets are, I envy iOs users for having access first and sometimes exclusively to some apps and games (although this changed a lot lately, Android is keeping the pace very well and it even starts setting the trend) I always stayed on the Android side of the technology!

I always saw Steve Job’s Apple as a trend setter. They always took the hard path (remember … promoting touch screens when all gadgets had buttons, promoting Bluetooth when all headsets had wires, promoting cool and expensive designs and most smartphones were struggling finding a decent finish, reliability and ease of usage when all manufacturers looked to cut costs and quality… and so on) and they were well rewarded for doing so (hey … while they were pushing hard they become the most valued company of the face of Earth!!!).

Noke Bluetooth Padlock
Just as the iFingerLock biometric padlock we featured earlier, the Fuz Design Noke Padlock is designed to overcome classic padlock problems such as losing the keys or forgetting the opening combinations.
The Noke padlock connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth and, via free iPhone and Android apps allows easy setup and operation. You can setup multiple smartphones to open a Noke, you can share access with other users, you can check usage history and easily unlock the padlock without even pulling the phone from your pocket.
The Noke padlock has a built-in battery which lasts up to a year of usage and, if you run out of battery or if you don’t have your phone with you, it can be operated by simply tapping the hinge (just as classic Morse code) and entering a quick click code previously set up.

The Noke Padlock is in project mode at Kickstarter and you reserve one for $59 (that’s about $30 less than what it would retail for). The project already reached it’s funding cap 9meaning that the Noke will be produced and released to the market) and the delivery is scheduled for February 2015.
