TGP #289 Speechnotes



Welcome to The Gadget Professor Show #289 hosted by Don Baine. Speechnotes – Ronen Rabinovici studied mathematics, physics & computer sciences and has a Master’s in physics from Weizmann institute. He always loved math and creating, and took many awards in math competitions as a kid. A few years ago,he made the Jewish Timeline (www.odyeda.com/en) infographic, which since then became main stream – and de-facto The Timeline being used all over the world to study Jewish chronology. It’s being used by schools, by the Hebrew University and also shown in some exhibitions (eg – it’s shown in the Bible City – Jerusalem). Not surprisingly Ronen has gone on to develop some amazing technology centering on speech recognition. Here are a few of his most popular successes!
1) TTSReader – the most popular online text-to-speech reader, reads pdf files too.
2) TTSReaderX – adds reading capabilities to the Chrome browser itself – ie – adds text-to-speech to every website, without leaving the page. Can read out loud the whole page, or selections. Especially great for Wiki articles, blogs, …
3) TTSReader for Android – same as above – for Android – so you can share any text / file with the app – and it will read it in the background (same as a music-player)
4) Speechnotes – the most popular dictation notepad on the web. Rated 4.7! on the Chrome store! Users’ feedbacks are like: “We ditched Dragon (100$ software) for Speechnotes (100% free)
5) Speechnotes for Android – Dictation notepad for mobile, supports bluetooth – and our patent-pending dictation keyboard.
6) Speechkeys – My personal favorite – the world’s first dictation keyboard. Patent-pending – and I believe that’s the future… It allows dictating, at the same time as using the keyboard for punctuation and symbols. => You dictate words – you type symbols => Enhances speed, accuracy and more natural. https://speechkeys.io
7) Speechlogger – instant translation Speech-to-Speech
8) TextHear – a cooperation with Geemarc – we’re developing devices for hearing impaired – it’s a small revolution – will transform any regular phone to a caption phone…

TGP #288 EZDisk EZ610S



Welcome to The Gadget Professor Show #288 hosted by Don Baine. EZ610S Many people have such experience: some files are sensitive need to be protected and some files aren’t. But how to separate them on a drive? By software? Nope, it’s too complicated! Hardware encryption engine
The EZ610 is design with hardware encryption engine. It’s working without software or driver is required. So it can work on multiple operation systems including Microsoft® Windows, Apple® OS X, Linux, Android and Chrome. The hardware encryption engine protects the entire files store on secured partition. It’s impossible to read and write the data on secured partition, if removing the hard drive from EZ610 and put the hard drive on a normal enclosure or even connect to computer SATA port directly.
The EZ610S will separate the disk space to one public partition and one secured partition by 50/50 of total capacity. After password setting, then computer will only recognize public partition when USB plug into the host. It does allow typing the password at the time hard drive idle. And if the password is correct then secured partition will appear properly.

I was very disappointed with the EZ610S, it did not work as advertised, and the manufacturer never responded to any of my questions.

TGP 287 Aluminum Cups



Welcome to The Gadget Professor Show #287 hosted by Don Baine. These aluminum cups were popular in the 1940s and ’50s in the same settings where today plastic is the number one material of choice: barbecues, parties and picnics.The two main manufacturers of aluminum tumblers were Sunburst and the Italian company Bascal. The cups came in bright colors – purple, pink, red, blue, silver and a variety of other hues. The aluminum was anodized – a process that protects aluminum from oxidation, increases wear resistance, and promotes color retention. Still, these cups are not recommended for dishwashers, as their colors will fade faster than with hand washing.With their humble size, these cups are a bit out-dated for today’s soda lovers. They hold a mere 11 oz of liquid. The current 7-11 Super Gulp measures a mammoth 64 fluid oz. You can still find the originals in antique stores, flee markets, and on Ebay. I still have a big sweet spot for these delightful cups in my childhood memories – a constant source of joy!

TGP #283 IK Multimedia iKlip Grip



Welcome to The Gadget Professor Show #283 hosted by Don Baine.iKlip Grip is the new multifunctional video stand with Bluetooth shutter control* for smartphones, compact video cameras, audio field recorders and more. iKlip Grip is 4 accessories in one: desktop tripod, grip handler, monopod and tripod adapter, that can securely hold any smartphone with or without a case with screen sizes from 3.5″ to 6″, and features also a standard mounting system for connecting small mobile video cameras like GoPro®, compact digital cameras and stand-mount audio field recorders.The secret to iKlip Grip lies in its ingenious expandable and secure holding bracket that allows you to precisely position any smartphone at any angle for capturing photos, video and audio. iKlip Grip features an expandable spring-loaded soft-touch rubber bracket that provides secure superior holding power. Repositioning of a smartphone is as simple as expanding the brackets to release the phone, then re-securing it. The iKlip Grip holding bracket features standard 1/4″-20 tripod screw threads so it can be mounted to any standard tripod as a mobile device adapter.There are lots of things not called “selfies” that… well, just feel good in your hand. Puppies, girlfriends, a ‘59 Les Paul, a ’52 Tele… and of course, the iKlip Grip. Its ergonomic (a fancy name for “designed to actually fit in your hand”) design is pretty darn easy to hold all night. And while the base for iKlip Grip serves as a sturdy, steady handle when you’re at a concert or trying to grab the perfect shot of the band for your facebook feed, it also transforms itself (with a little help from you) into a compact tabletop tripod you can position on any relatively level surface for ultra-steady media gathering. Flip the legs out and bam! You’ve got yourself a nice tabletop tripod for your phone or camera.
