On today's Tekzilla, we talk camera apps for your smartphone, disaster prep for your tech, Nexus 4 wireless chargers and the blinky red light!
Today on Tekzilla, Severe Weather Preparedness Week: we've got five things to do BEFORE mother nature stomps your house flat. Can you add NFC to my smartphone using MicroSD? Sim City is here... how excited is Veronica? Very! Are the rumors of Apple's iOS watch legit? Six strikes? How about copyright holders reward people that don't steal instead! Qi wireless chargers for the Nexus 4 tested. Do NOT Mock The Red Blinky Light!
In honor of National Severe Weather Preparedness Week, brought to you by FEMA, and NOAA we've got out Top 5 list of things to do -before- a storm, tornado, earthquake, flood, or some other natural disaster hits your home! And check out Get Tech Ready for more ideas, like how to subscribe to FEMA text messages.
Check out this fun new Chrome experiment called Chrome Sync Sports, this week's "Website We Just Can't Get Enough of!" It runs on Chrome, turns your phone into a game controller, and lets you have multiplayer matches against your friends. Try it out!
Thanks to the Qi standard, set by the Wireless Power Consortium, there's a growing collection of Android phones -like the Nexus 4- that can use wireless inductive charging. No cables, just set your phone down on the charger! Roger's been testing the Nexus 4 Wireless Charger and the METRAN MWT01. Do they really work? Watch the video!
Patrick mocked the red blinky light on his Eton radio weather radio last week... Earl writes in to tell us that the red blinky light helped local police find his home after a tree took out the roof!
"I just watched Annie's report on the six strikes anti piracy program that ISPs are implementing. How about rewarding those people who don't commit such infractions? Say a $5 iTunes gift card or something? Why not reward good behavior for once?" We talk punishment, and show off some Copyright Alert System notices that ArsTechnica found!
