Tech Tuesday: Turn Your iPhone Into a Satellite Phone & Google’s Keep

This week on News 1130 radio in Vancouver, I talked about these items:

  • Turn Your iPhone Into A Satellite Phone: A new product from Thuraya called the SatSleeve allows you to turn your iPhone 4/4S/5 into a global satellite phone. You simply slide your iPhone into the sleeve and it connects to the Thuraya network from anywhere in the world. It’s not cheap though with talk time costing from $1 to $8 a minute depending where you are in the world. Data access is coming soon as well. It begins shipping in April for around $500.
  • Google’s Keep gives Evernote a run for it’s money: Last week, Google released Keep which is a cloud based note taking and to do list application. It’s currently only an app for Android smartphones but can be accessed from any web browser. It’s simple interface makes taking notes, organizing to do lists and tagging photos. It will also transcribe your voice notes. Free on the Google Play Store.
