Smartphones and Sex: How the tech in your pocket affects life in (and out of) your pants

[#protected_0#]

One week ago we asked you about how your smartphone factors into your dating, romance, and sex lives. And while we expected quite a response, we didn’t expect this much of a response. More than 17,000 of you took part in our survey in the past week, and the results were interesting, to say the least.

There are plenty of interesting correlations and divergences based on age groups and platform choice. Some are not at all surprises, others caught us by surprise. For example…

Kickstart Project for HOYO – A Waterproof Smartphone Pocket with a Twist

[#protected_0#]

London, United Kingdom – Product designer and application developer, George Sheety today is pleased to announce the Kickstarter project for HOYO, a waterproof pocket for iPhones and iPod touch devices. HOYO is a 100% water- and dust-proof pocket that protects smartphone and music players from harsh and humid environments while providing full-touch control over the device. HOYO allows users to keep their devices within reach while in the shower or engaging in dirty work.

The HOYO Kickstarter campaign aims to raise 25,000 GBP by March 16. With this financial support, HOYO prototypes will be converted to production-ready models, the molds will be manufactured so HOYO can be produced in quantities, and test methods will be created to insure watertightness of all manufactured items. Early supporters of the Kickstarter project will be rewarded with special limited-quantity offers of HOYO kits that will be shipped for free to the United States and the United Kingdom in June 2014.

Feature Highlights:
* 100% waterproof pocket
* Full touch control through the transparent pocket (swipe, tap, or pinch phone screen easily)
* Extremely easy access to tuck in and take out any smartphone
* 100% watertight lid to protect from water splashes and humidity
* Crystal clear see-through pocket allows viewing of mobile screen
* Elegant design with fully durable anti-rust material
* Includes shower curtain cutting kit and all installation materials
* Step-by-step instruction manual, diagrams, and tutorial videos
* Can be installed on all types of shower curtains (plastic or glass) and any type of bathroom wall ceramics
* Variety of colors (gold and chrome will be unlocked when first goal is met)

The main concept of HOYO is based on the fact that a shower curtain is the only separator between the Dry Zone and the Wet Zone. If HOYO is placed on the shower curtain, with access from the Dry Zone and the pocket in the Wet Zone, users can interact with the device when in the Wet Zone and pick it up again when hands are dry and clean in the Dry Zone. This allows the device to be completely safe from water splashes while still providing access to the user.

Each HOYO kit consists of:
* A pocket holder ring which is inserted between the two layers of the transparent pocket
* A rubber seal that is placed between the shower or glass curtain and closing nut
* A closing nut that seals the hole in the shower or glass curtain
* A watertight lid that is equipped with an O-ring to prevent water from entering pocket
* A waterproof pocket that is crystal clear and see-through
* A fully transparent and removable strap that attaches HOYO to the suction cup
* A suction cup that will hold HOYO to any ceramic wall, mirror, glass panel or any smooth surface

Among the many places HOYO can be installed, the more common uses are HOYO’s installation in a shower. Installation of HOYO on a shower curtain involves first clipping the cutting kit on each side of the shower curtain. With a knife cutter, users cut through the slits to form a circle. Placing the pocket holder into the hole, users twist the closing nut. Once installed, users can tuck their smartphones in and out of the hole every time that want to shower. HOYO can also be affixed to a smooth surface by affixing the included suction cup, tucking the device in the pocket, and twisting the lid to seal the pocket.

“My hunger for online daily news specially tech news made me reach for my smartphone every single time I had a free minute or two to read and learn about new inventions,” says George Sheety, Co-Founder of HOYO. “The shower was one of the best moments where I could get an extra dose of the latest news uninterrupted before I went to work or ended my day.

“I used to lay my iPhone away from water splashes near the shampoo bottles until I bought a waterproof pocket. However, it was a tremendous hassle putting the device in and taking it out of the pocket everyday. It made me wonder if I could design something better? A pocket that I would use daily every time I took a shower? HOYO was simply born out of frustration in finding a simple, reliable, and easy-to-use waterproof pocket in the shower.

“As an architect, I’ve been always fascinated by the power of products design and their impact on people’s lives.” Sheety continues. “How brilliant it is to design a software or a hardware that thousands of people will use daily. How it changes their life experience for ever. How they become so dependent on that product and its simplicity that they forget how it first came to life and how much effort was put into the design to bring it to its end form. It’s my desire that HOYO make people’s smartphones more accessible and their lives much better.”

Device Requirements:
* Fits all types of smartphones up to 5.3 inch screens (iPhone 4, 4s, 5, 5s, etc.)
* Fits all phones less than 100mm in width and 165mm in height

Pricing and Availability:
HOYO’s Kickstarter campaign aims to raise 25,000 GBP by March 16. Early supporters will be rewarded with special limited-quantity offers. Early supporters contributing 12 GBP or more can choose to receive either one HOYO shower curtain kit or one HOYO wall kit. Early supporters contributing GBP15 or more will receive a HOYO set that can be used either on a shower curtain or on the wall. After the early bird specials are taken, supporters can give 15 GBP or more to choose either one HOYO shower curtain kit or one HOYO wall kit. Supporters giving 18 GBP or more receive one HOYO set that can be used either on a shower curtain or on the wall. Supporters giving 30 GBP or more receive the home set, which are two HOYO sets for use both in the shower and on the wall. Shipping in the United States and the United Kingdom is free.

Pocket celebrates a year with release of new features

The folks behind the Pocket app are celebrating one year. To clarify, they are celebrating the one-year anniversary of when they changed the name from Read It Later to Pocket. Regardless of the specific anniversary though, it looks like those who are using Pocket on an Android device now have an update waiting for them. In addition to the app update, this celebration also comes with some interesting comments on sharing.

It seems Pocket users (across all platforms) are now sharing more than 35 million items per month. While that certainly sounds like a large number, the interesting part here is that sharing over email is used more often than sharing over social networks. According to the data from Pocket, users are sharing over email more than twice as often than they are on social networks. You can get an idea of that from the image sitting below, however email sharing is double that of Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr combined.

Of course, these details about sharing seem to connect with the new features. First up, this release of Pocket makes it easier to share content with friends using the Send to Friend option. Those on the receiving end of the share will see the shared items directly in Pocket. There is also a new share menu that will highlight your recent apps and friends.

Shifting away from the sharing aspect and there is still a few remaining goodies. Here we have a feature called Instant Sync which will sync across multiple devices as well as an auto full-screen mode that works in both the Article and Web View. Finally, last up was the unspecified, but always welcomed “bug fixes and improvements.” With that, those with Pocket already installed can grab the update using the Play Store on their device. All others, Pocket can be found using this Google Play Store link.

Low-end Samsung Galaxy Pocket Neo smartphone tipped for May launch

Samsung Logo aa 600px 1

Samsung’s Galaxy smartphone line has always been primarily about diversity, variety and choice, but things are getting a bit out of hand lately. Not only is Sammy blurring the lines between mid-range and high-end and diluting the “Galaxy” brand in the process, but when it comes to entry-level devices everything is just too tangled to tell right from left.

If we are to trust SamMobile (and we usually do), a so-called Galaxy Pocket Neo is currently being worked on in Samsung’s labs and getting prepared for a mid-may release. Besides the baffling name, the little guy is to stir up quite some confusion, as it’s likely to be officially introduced close to a Galaxy Pocket Plus.

The Pocket Plus is rumored to carry the GT-S5301 model number, while the Neo is also known as the GT-S5310 or GT-S5312 (the latter for the dual-SIM version). Both phones are rehashes of last year’s Galaxy Pocket (aka S5300), which honestly is too much to take in for me.

Samsung-Galaxy-Pocket

But maybe you can easily tell the three apart based on their spec sheets, right? Only you can’t. The original Pocket came with a 2.8-inch 240 x 320 pix res screen, an 832 MHz ARM 11 CPU, a 2 MP cam and Android 2.3.

The Pocket Plus is said to pack an identical display, an 850 MHz Cortex A9-based processor and Android 4.0 ICS. Finally, the Pocket Neo is to come with a 3-inch 240 x 320 panel, the same pesky 2 MP camera and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. I really think my head is going to explode any minute now!

Thankfully, there is one scenario where Samsung is only mildly insane with all these ever so slightly different entry-level devices. And that is the Pocket Plus and Pocket Neo turn out to be the exact same phone. After all, the only differences we know of at this time are the on-board software, display size and model numbers, all of which could have been easily confused by the “sources in the know”. Please, oh please, let it be so!

One of the reasons why I keep my BlackBerry in a case (among many others) is because of the dreaded pocket dialing. You know that situtation, for some reason when your BlackBerry is in your bag, purse, or pocket and, unbeknownst to you, dials out to one of the many contacts on your list. The party on the other then happens to pick up and proceeds to listen to whatever conversation is currently in progress, which may not be for suitable for their ears because of content or background noise.

If that scenario sounds all too familiar then you are not alone. I’ve received plenty of calls from friends, family, and co-workers who didn’t realize they dialed my number or how I listened to the entire ruckus going on in the background.
