Business/Technology: In China, People Usually Carry Less Than $15 In Their Pockets… But NEVER Leave Home Without Their Smartphones (Video)

Got that “Making Moves With Puff” (Craig Mack) playing in the mental for some reason. Something about the headline maybe. Haaaaa, bwoooyyy!

Buuuut, for real, they DON’T gotta get the cash nowadays. See how China is already in the future? Cash is already dead in China. They pay for EVERYTHING with their phones. Cash is NOT king, unlike in the States. They don’t even do credit/debit cards. Even chipping off money to the homeless… all digital, with the phone, homie. Watch!

Got An Apple Watch? Then You Can ‘Summon’ A Tesla Car Like Michael Knight Calls KITT (Video)

Once again, a nerdgasmic advance in real-world technology. Megabucks real-life Tony Starks aka Elon Musk, and his Tesla car brand, are showing us something really, really COOL! Remember how the car (KITT) on the Knight Rider TV show used to come when Michael Knight (played by David Hasselhoff) called him on his super-spy type watch? Yeah, that’s the Tesla Summon feature.

Dope, right? Oh, and the car in the clip above… it drives itself, too!

‘Legal Equalizer’ App To Help You Know Your Rights And Protect You In Encounters With Police (Video)

“This app is something that we truly believe in…that’s going to make things more equal for everybody. That’s the point of this app. We want people to know their rights. We want people to have their friends and family contacted…when they have any kind of interaction with law enforcement officers.”
Mbye Njie

This is the type of thing apps should be doing. Music, movies and games are fine; but how about securing your liberty. Think about it: Your rights are your RIGHTS, but only if you remember to invoke them! And will you remember your rights when local law enforcement is tapping on your window during a ‘routine’ traffic stop? The police are trained to get information from suspects they might otherwise withhold; but you should NOT be treated like a suspect if you are not. Cops would certainly not mind a little leeway in dealing with a ‘tough arrest.’ Perhaps knowing their curbside investigation is being recorded – and that your friends, family and/or lawyer has been notified – is better for EVERYBODY… the peace officers AND the people they’re sworn to PROTECT and serve.

And what if you are detained or taken into custody? With this Legal Equalizer app, you can be reminded of what the authorities can and cannot do or ask. It would probably comfort you a bit to also know that you won’t spend time in a squad car station without your folks knowing AND knowing where you are (yes, the app will send the location to whomever you designate as well).

Bravo, Mr. Njie for taking huge steps to bring technology to this fight for our lives! Want to help? Watch the above update video, and check out the GoFundMe page for the Legal Equalizer.

Technology: Qualcomm’s Paul Jacobs Sees a Bright Future for Smartphones (Video)

Qualcomm was the chip company smart enough to put Internet protocols into cell phones right around the time the ‘Net was becoming accessible to the general public (early 1990s). The guy at the helm of a company that demonstrates such foresight is someone to whom we should listen, right?

Well, whether or not you do, I am listening to what Qualcomm CEO Paul Jacobs has to say:

‘There are a lot of opportunities… Obviously, the smartphone trend is going to continue… There will be 5 billion smartphones sold between now and 2016.’

Paul Jacobs

5 billion!! Did y’all get that? Now, what would smart folks in media (radio, TV, performing artists, promoters, bloggers, etc.) be looking to do in light of such a tip from such an authority as Jacobs? I dunno.

(Yeah, I do. Look left. You can download the JayForce mobile app… to interact with this site via phone… to listen to Beatz & Lyrics with JayForce via phone… you… do get it, right?)

So, just how far can this mobile trend take us? Possibilities for business are obvious; but what about for humanity. Check it:

‘Let me tell you something that’s pretty cool. There’s a researcher we’re working with who has an idea to put a tiny chip inside your bloodstream … and it’ll maybe lodge in your wrist and look for certain indicators that in two weeks you might have a heart attack. Can you imagine that? So your phone will ring and tell you to go to your doctor. That’s in the lab right now. People are working on that now.’

Paul Jacobs

LovePalz: New Smart Phone Sex Device Goes Virtually Hi-Tech (Video)

Yes! Yes! YES! Get your phone jone on folks! Haha! I might be wrong for tagging this ‘comedy’ because… mark my words… SOMEBODY will be hoping to use this ‘technology’… A.S.A.P.! The video presents the LovePalz concept – a smartphone operated virtual sex device which allows you to have sex with a partner over the phone. Shout out to Broccoli City for the perfect set of ‘instructions’ to accompany this video:

‘To use the Palz a man puts his thing in a thing and a woman puts a thing in her thing and the technology mimics the same speed, or not, because who’s counting.’

Hey… if you think you can take it… watch the video. Had me cracking up!
