Google Keep - First view on Google's note-taking service

Image
I used a number of software or apps – but after a certain time I have grown somewhat unhappy with the one or another app and interface. But lately I come across Google Keep and examined it and what should I say - I have been very impressed – and the people who knows me – know it’s not that easy to impress me :-) And it might become my new app to collect and manage all of my notes.



My first impression was – that it looks really clean and simple - with options to noting down text, recording audio, embedding photos and populating lists. And that’s a point where most note taking tools already fail. Most note-taking apps take a "more is more" approach and present a complicated conglomeration of navigation, submenus, features, and options – hey man I have an idea.

Nuviz HUD is finally ready for the road

HUD stands for Head-Up Display – Let me summarize what is meant with HUD in two sentences – HUDs are showing information via a translucent display. These displays allows the viewer to get information without looking away from the environment or things in front of the viewer. This technic of displaying information on a translucent surface has been used in fighter jets since years. And we see this technology since a while more and more in cars in which the data is projected onto the windshield.



And now there is a HUD device for motorcycle riders.

After years of talk, promises of various start-ups the first-ever Head-Up Display for a motorcycle helmet is finally about to hit the market.

After investing in Skully and losing my money – another crowdfunded project did what they promised the Nuviz HUD is finally ready for the road and ready to ship and at $699 in July 2017
