The Edge Adapter

I think sometimes we think of everything as a commodity. Meaning when we go shop on Amazon we forget about the companies behind the product, the design, the thought and effort put into someone. We think of one power cord being the same as another. Or even now with information we view as a commodity, information on Twitter is the same as information published in the New York Times. The classic definition of a commodity is “a raw material or primary agricultural product that can be bought and sold, such as copper or coffee.” There is no difference from one to another, coffee is coffee for example. We need to get away from this thinking and really look at the intentions of the companies we buy from. The Italian designed Edge is different, the intention and mission behind Edge is different.

What is Edge?

– Edge is eco sustainable in that the cover and interior case are made of recycled plastic.

– Edge is powerful using the latest GaN technology. Edge is able to recognize the amound of energy needed to the device it’s connected to saving energy.

– The product is durable using durable materials. For example cords are made of fiber cloth.

– This is one of the features I like the most. Lets say Apple decides to change the style of cord needed to power your phone (As they like to do). All you need to do to keep the power party going is purchase a new cord. Edge has been equipped with detachable and exchangeable cords to give it better resistance and to last longer. Cords that are already available include USB-C, Micro USB, Microsoft Surface, Apple Magsafe, Apple Magsafe 2, Apple Lightning, Lenovo, Dell, and HP. Also, if you get tired of the device color you can purchase new case designs.

Power Cords

– Edge features modular design meaning whatever the device, you can get power to it.

Edge aims to be functional, sustainable, fashionable, and not something you simply buy and will soon throw away.

Any Rewards?

Yes, there are many rewards tiers starting with the $73 level. $73 gives you 1 early bird Edge product. The rewards go all the way up to $243 and that will get you 3 units at 27% off.

Conclusion

Edge is ready to go, their trusted supplier is about to begin production. The goal of the campaign is about $17,000 and they have 41 backers thus far. Even with 41 backers they are less than 50% there. Please consider supporting their Indiegogo campaign today and help make this campaign and new company a success.

Computers May Be Good For the Brain

Computers May Be Good For the Brain

It may seem fairly obvious to say that doing some exercises is good for the body. But what about the brain? In many ways, the brain looks like a muscle as well, and can use some exercise, but what type? According to a recent study, it seems computer use can be good for the brain, and protect your memory, thanks to some interesting activities that goes on when you’re in front of that monitor screen. So let’s see some useful information that you should know in order to keep your brain active and your body in good health.

The study basically spoke of the useful activities that can stimulate your brain, and help keep it in good health. Studies about the brain are not new, and they have been conducted for many years now. Typically, the results always point at mental exercises as the best way to keep your brain in good condition. The idea is that the human brain is made of connections between each of its parts. As you work your brain, by doing maths, logic puzzles, or anything that make you think, more of these connections are made. So if your brain is filled with connections, everything works much better, your memory stays more vivid, and you run a lower risk of getting any of the aging related brain problems, like a loss of memory. If each cell in your brain that contains an important memory is linked by 3 or 4 connections instead of one, it’s easy to see that it’s going to last longer and be more solid. This is the basis for this latest study, and the results it showed were very similar.

Basically, when you sit in front of your computer, you always make use of your brain in some way. You’re reading text, using a complex software program, or trying to understand a problem that requires you to think. Just like doing logic puzzles in a book, being in front of your computer will help your brain in some ways. Of course, if you just watch a video or play a shooting game, maybe the benefit won’t be that great. But if you play an interactive puzzle game, do some programming, or learn a new software, then all these things are useful, because they make you use your brain, and in turn they create more connections. So even playing a game, something that may seem like pretty much a waste of time, may have some good side effects. This may not all be intuitive, but that’s what the study showed, and it’s in line with previous research which showed that it doesn’t matter what you do, the important thing is to make your brain work in some way.

Of course, that’s not a license to spend all your time in front of a computer. The rest of your body needs to work out also, and staying sitting doing nothing is not good for it. You need to stand up, move around, do some regular exercise. But if you can mix the two, sitting in front of a computer and going out for some fresh air, then it’s probably the best of both worlds.
