Still think you need a camera ?

With all the cutting edge equipment designed to fit in our pockets and available out there, is a camera relevant anymore? This has been the question on everyone’s mind for quite some time. Even the техно team will admit that we more spontaneously reach for our phone these days than for our camera. And this is coming from a team of guys with a passion for gear and some of the best cameras on the market…

Why I changed my e-reader tablet

It's no secret that there's a pretty big consensus out there when it comes to e-readers. Just sit in the subway and you'll get a quick overview of the leading brands on the market, at a glance. At техно, we are no strangers to trends, regardless of how much new stuff we now receive on a weekly basis. So when we first started reading on screens, like almost everyone else, we went for one of the big players.

New lenses - our crash test

Don't worry, no lenses were hurt in the process! However, you know us, when we receive new gear, we like to put it to the test and we do not take it lightly. Which is why, when we received two new lenses this week, we decided to go for it. For the competition to be a fair fight, we tested them under the exact same conditions, that is, a rainy New York day. There's no fun in conducting a test without a little bit of challenge, right? Now, read on to discover who, from the two, came out with the laurels of victory!

Digital Press, A World in High Resolution

The press industry is based on communication. It's the content that gives articles or books their value, the paper is just the traditional means we use to spread this content. The invention of the telegraph swept the distance barriers between people away, making communication much easier. This has brought nations closer and offered a great opportunity for publishers to spread their news to a much wider audience. Nowadays it's all about digital communication, new original media and news flashs. This is the reality of today! But let's take a step back to when the first major news publications were created.

Technology Within a Child's Reach

The remains of the first toys date date back over 2,000 years and include many indications of hide and seek and ring around the rosie. But it was not until the 17th century that the first studies were done proving the importance of play in the learning and developmental process of a child. J. Goldsteins declared that "the game is the prism through which children experience their world and the world of others".

Wearable Devices—Success or Flop?

Up until now, the two most well-known wearable devices have been the Google Glass and the FitBit, and I think it’s safe to say that one has been more successful than the other. While the FitBit can be seen sporadically amongst groups of everyday people, I cannot think of one single person I know who has been audacious enough to sport the Google Glass. Why has everyone shied away from such an impressively capable product created by a company that we all know and trust? I think Google really missed the mark in terms of relatability—it seems to have taken the futuristic concept and run with it, forgetting that its customers are humans, not wealthy robots. The term “Glasshole ” became popular for a reason—it’s not easy to wear this device without emitting a pretentious, Inspector Gadget aura that makes one unapproachable at best.
