Mophie Battery Pack for Your Cell: A Review
It’s no surprise that with all the different uses for our smartphones the one thing we are all longing for is a longer lasting battery life. One of many new companies selling battery packs is Mophie, and they just released a new “Space Pack” battery and storage case. 9to5Mac reviewed the product as a “very interesting and useful accessory”.
Local storage is built directly into the Space Pack case and content can be managed through Mophie’s free Space app. This app feels like using cloud storage, and allows access to music, movies, photos, and documents among other things. Syncing content from your computer is also made easy by simply dragging, dropping, and saving to the app.
The look and feel of Mophie’s Space Pack is similar to previous versions of battery cases they offer. Though slightly heavier than previous models, and longer than an iPhone, the case does provide more storage and power. It gives about 80% more battery and comes with the option of either 16 or 32GB of extra storage. 9to5Mac recommends the unique Space Pack case as a solid option for your needs.

E-Bike Sales: Soaring in Europe
E-bikes, a trend that hasn’t quite caught on in the United States yet, is booming all over Europe. The more expensive and evolving bike includes an electric motor to make pedaling easier.
Many manufacturers are competing to create the best e-bike with the best price, since the typical e-bike can cost around $2,700. In countries like the Netherlands, Germany, and Denmark the growth has been huge over the past few years. The popular new bike isn’t just for recreational riding either. People are using them as an easier and less sweaty way to commute to work and avoid car traffic. Some people are actually using them as part of their work day, like in the case of postal service workers.
Many feel the expensive price tag is worth it. The bikes can go several days between charges, depending on usage. To learn more about the rise of e-bikes, visit here.
Cisco turns 30!
Like us, Cisco turns 30 this year! Cisco, the worldwide leader in IT, helps companies by creating long-lasting partnerships and putting their customers first. They continue to identify customers’ needs and provide solutions to support their success.
Husband and wife Len Bosack and Sandy Lerner were working for Stanford University in 1984 and wanted to email each other from their offices in different buildings. Due to technical shortcomings they did not have the ability to do this. Out of their need for a solution to their problem, the multi-protocol router was created.
Cisco has since continued to shape the future of the Internet by creating value and opportunity for customers, employees, investors, and ecosystem partners. Solutions are driven by addressing specific customer challenges. To learn more about how Cisco, in their 30th year, is transforming how people connect, communicate and collaborate, visit here.
