JUMPR - Most Portable Jump Starter

The JUMPR is a sleek, lightweight external battery that houses an impressive 6,000 mAh battery pack capable of jumping a completely dead car battery in minutes. The multi-functional battery also features an USB 5V 2.1A output able to charge power hungry devices such as smartphones, cameras, and tablets. Users will never again have to worry about being stranded with a dead phone or car battery.
We're used to seeing the battery on the right, purchased at your local automobile hardware store, where it packs a flashlight, two jumper cables, and weighs... well, 25 lbs or so.  It's not easy to carry around, and we usually throw it in the trunk. Well, the JUMPR is only 7 ounces (the iPhone is 3.95 Oounces) making it quite portable just like your smartphones.
JUMPR is an ultra portable and compact universal battery pack that is just a tad bigger than your mobile phone and shorter than the length of the common sunglasses.  Despite the small size, it packs a whopping 6,000mAh lithium polymer battery inside it's metallic blue enclosure. I know what you're thinking... there are many people out there making portable USB batteries...What's so different about JUMPR?
Despite the fact that it only carries a 6,000 mAh battery and its size, the JUMPR does a lot more than just charge your mobile smartphone, camera, or tablet on the go.  With its sleek form factor of 139 x 75 x 15mm, this little device produces a 12 Volt output at a peak of 300 amps. 
If you don't know what that means, our automobiles and motorycles run on 12 Volts, and can sometimes, well, need a little boost - for those times we forgot to turn off the headlights or the days that we didn't close the door shut and the dome lights drained the power.
The JUMPR provides 12 Volts of power at peak 300 Amps to ensure that your dead automobile or motorycle battery can be brought back to life.  300 Amps is enough to jumpstart almost all 4-Cylinder and 6-Cylinder engines as well as possibly enough to jump start more depending on type of model. 
Throw this device in your purse, carry it in your back pocket, store it in your glove compartment - it's going to... one day, be your best friend.

중국發 '아이폰6' 목업 이미지 포착.. 얇은 베젤과 곡면 모서리 '눈길'

애플 아이폰6(가칭)의 목업 원형으로 추정되는 사진들이 중국으로부터 등장했다.
29일(현지시간) 프랑스 IT매체 노웨어엘스는 중국 애플 포럼으로부터 입수한 아이폰6의 목업으로 추정되는 사진을 공개했다.
사진 속 목업 제품의 정확한 크기는 확인되지 않았지만, 사진상으로 봐도 아이폰5S(7.6mm)보다 얇아 보이고 아이패드미니 또는 아이패드 에어같은 느낌도 주고 있다.
또, 기존의 각진 모서리가 아닌 둥근 모서리가 채용됐으며 돌출된 후면 카메라, 새롭게 디자인된 볼륨 버튼, 둥근 LED 플래시 등은 앞서 유출됐던 루머와도 일치한다.
이 목업이 실제 아이폰6 목업인지는 알 수없다. 사진을 입수한 노웨어엘스 역시'아이폰6'인지는 확실치 않다고 밝히고 있다. 하지만, 항간에 떠돌고 있는 루머와 상당부분 일치되는 점으로 미루어 보아 아이폰6가 이와 비슷한 디자인을 가지고 있을 것이라는 추측은 해볼 수 있다.

The Rufus Cuff looks great on the top of the wrist, like a traditional watch, or on the underside of the wrist, to keep alerts and messages more discreet. To show you how they look in person, we stepped out of the lab and into sunlight to take some photos.

Q: What kind of compatibility will the Rufus Cuff have with iPhone since it runs on Android?
