Blue Freedom

I have posted some innovative products for powering your devices when “Off Grid” and this new company called Blue Freedom is just introducing a new product that can now use flowing water to power your devices. First there were hand cranking devices, some that used fire, and  now you can have your own portable Hydro Power-plant.

Bunker Ring

I have been using this Bunker Ring for some time now, and I have to say its been the best accessory I have ever bought for my mobile devices. Its simple, effective, and cheap. The video talks about using it on your device without a case, but I have been using mine quite successfully with then case on my iPhone 6 Plus, shown in the photo below. Also I bought mine on Amazon for about $15.00


Samsung Galaxy S6

Which phone should I Buy?

The Samsung Galaxy S6 has some amazing new features, and some that will probably annoy owners of previous models of this device. My own initial impression of this device is that it is amazing and you really cannot go wrong with a beautiful device like this. Some of my favorite new features are a quick charging mode, which can recharge the device to 4 hours of additional usage in only 10 minutes! My next favorite feature is the camera, which boasts a 16MP rear camera and a 5MP front facing camera as well as 4K video. For more detailed specs you can check out complete product details on the Samsung website through the link provided.

Things gone are features like waterproofing, easily replaceable battery, and memory upgrades using micro SD cards.
