This app definitely goes under the category of “what will they think of next.” I didn’t even know such a thing existed, but now that I do, I can’t imagine ever not using it. It could be life-saving.

Pillboxie can watch over the medication for everyone in your family. You can set a name or nickname for each different person, and also a different reminder tone for Notifications. Additionally, you can email a listing of your medications. Every time we go to a different doctor, they ask what medicine my son is on. I can email this to myself to easily read it off, or open the app itself. I have the app on my iPad, but I could also download it to my iPhone and just open the app to read off the medicine to the doctors.

When you add in your medications, you aren’t just listing them by name. You can identify them by type, shape, and color. They aren’t all pills. Sometimes they are drops, liquids, or inhalers. Creams seemed to be the one type that was missing, so when I added a cream, I just identified it as a liquid. When you’re taking many, it can be easy to mix them up. My son takes two different pills, one antibiotic and one for pain, so this helps identify which is which. One of them is an IV drip, so I took a picture of it with the app itself and used that as the visual identifier.

Along with knowing which medicine they are, you also need to know when they need to be taken. Instead of just typing in a time, Pillboxie has you “dropping” the pill or liquid or inhaler into a pillbox for a certain time. It’s exactly what you would expect for an iOS app, easy visual organization.

Other than just taking medications at the right time, there are also important things to know about them after they are taken, such as how they made you feel, if you took it at the right time or not, and if you took all of it that you were supposed to. Sometimes medicine help, but they don’t always. This serves as a good record for letting your doctor know when they work and when they don’t, and to remind you when you missed a dose, or when you weren’t able to take as much as you were supposed to. Additionally, there’s an area for notes. One great use for that is to add in your prescription number and the phone number of the pharmacy to make it even easier to phone in refills.

Once all your medicine are entered, you can visually see them all on the shelf, scrolling down to see them all if there are many, as there are with my son. Once you end a medication, you can change the time to being “Not currently taken.” It helps to keep it there on the shelf as a reminder of a past medication to tell doctors and hospitals. Notifications will kick in for just the medicine that you are currently on, giving you a reminder every time you are to take one.

I just wish I had this app earlier. My son was on a medication schedule the first few weeks that was very difficult to remember, with some being every eight hours, and some being every twelve hours. I had to have a schedule written up on and taped to the wall. The Pillboxie app would have been so much more easier, as well as being more efficient.

Now Never Lose Your Airpods With Apple’s ‘Find My Airpod’ Feature

Now Never Lose Your AirPods With Apple’s ‘Find my AirPod’ Feature

“Important Tip: The AirPods must be connected to the iPhone via Bluetooth to find lost AirPods.”

Even if the Apple AirPods are not connected through Bluetooth, there are still few ways Apple can help you to find lost AirPods.

First Thing First – Setup Your AirPods

Step 1. Get on to the home screen of your iPhone or iPad.

Step 2. Open the Apple AirPod case keeping your iPhone next to it.

Step 4. Tap on the ‘Connect’ button.

Step 5. If you have AirPods (2nd generation) or AirPods Pro, you can set up “Hey Siri” with your AirPods. Tap on the ‘Done’ button once it is complete.

“Please Note: If you are logged in to your iCloud account, your AirPods will automatically set up with all the supported devices that are using the same Apple ID.”

When your Apple AirPods are connected to your iPhone or iPad, it will be easy to find them if they are lost or stolen.

How to Find AirPods on Map

To find lost AirPods or stolen AirPods, you can sign in to chúng tôi or use Apple’s ‘Find My’ app to locate your lost AirPods on a map. ‘Find My’ app shows you the current location of all your Apple devices that are signed in with the same Apple ID. It will also locate your lost AirPods if they are connected. If they’re not connected, ‘Find My’ app will show you the location where they were online last time.

On A PC On Your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch

Open the ‘Find My’ app and select the ‘Devices’ tab. Tap on your AirPods and it will find your Apple AirPods. It will show you a location under each device or display ‘No location found’ if it is not turned ON.

“Important: If your AirPods are not together, it will show you only one location at a time on the map. Mostly it is the main AirPod. Find it, grab it and put the AirPod in its case. Refresh the map again and it will track the second lost AirPod.”

Play a Sound on Your AirPods

If you are certain that your lost AirPods are nearby, this is the best option to find lost AirPods. It should be connected to you’re your Apple Device through Bluetooth. You can use both ways chúng tôi or ‘Find My’ App to play a sound and find lost AirPods. Go to the ‘Devices’ tab and select your AirPods from the list. Tap on the ‘Play Sound’ button and Apple AirPods will play progressively louder sound for two minutes, or until you stop it.

“Please Note: Do not try this when your Apple AirPods are on your ears as it is going to be loud.”

How to Find AirPods When Offline?

Well, that’s a dream as of now, once you have lost AirPods and someone turned off stolen AirPods, you can’t find lost AirPods. It doesn’t show on Map or play a sound as it loses connectivity. All we can find is, where it was last located when it got turned off. You can find AirPods when offline if they are still sitting there where they got into offline mode.

Can Someone Use Found AirPods?

If you have permanently lost AirPods, the person who found one or both of them can use them. Stolen AirPods or lost AirPods can be paired with their iPhone and they can use it as it doesn’t restrict the usage. Even if you have ‘Find My AirPods’ enabled, it will automatically be unpaired from your device list as soon as someone factory reset AirPods.

“Please Note: Apple AirPods doesn’t have any ‘iCloud lock’ or lost mode!”

If someone resets Apple AirPods and pairs them to a new Apple device, stolen AirPods get listed under that person’s Apple ID and his ‘Find My’ app. The new location permanently disappears from your device and the account. They are permanently gone!

Can You Track AirPods’ Case?

Well, that’s a good question. As of now, Apple has only designed to find lost AirPods but if you have lost AirPod case or it is leftover somewhere, and you ask me “can you track AirPods?” I’ll simply say it’s not possible to find your AirPod case.

Regrettably, only your Apple AirPods are designed to make a chirping sound on your lost AirPods’ but the AirPod case isn’t loaded with speakers or vibrators and thus they can’t create any sound to help you locate your lost AirPod case back.

So as you can’t find AirPod case, here’s what you can do now. If you finally realize that you lost AirPod case or it’s damaged, you can place a replacement order from Apple for a fee of $69.00 for the case or individual AirPod.

“Tip: This feature will not work if your AirPods are out of range, powered off, or in the AirPod’s case with a closed lid.”

Wrapping Up

Your Apple AirPod is your baby, you need to take care of them as you can’t always rely on ‘Find my AirPod’ apps. This app is just for your convenience if the AirPod is lost within your home. If you have lost AirPods outside your circle, it becomes invariably impossible to find lost AirPods or lost AirPod case. And especially, you can’t find AirPods when offline.

Site Miners Will Match Medicine And Engineering

Site miners will match medicine and engineering New program spots potential for life-saving collaborations

George O’Connor, a School of Medicine professor and asthma researcher at the Pulmonary Center, appreciates the value of serendipity. It was, after all, a fortuitous dinner with his Boston University colleague Bela Suki during a National Institutes of Health symposium in Washington, D.C., last year that led to an ongoing collaboration on a mechanical ventilation system that could one day help save the lives of patients with respiratory failure.

Suki is an associate professor of biomedical engineering at the College of Engineering, but news of his research never traveled across campus to O’Connor until they met in Washington.

Now, O’Connor is trying to identify the potential for similarly valuable collaborations, whose genesis need not be dependent on chance. He is one of two newly appointed University “site miners,” faculty members who will devote 20 percent of their professional time to identifying and cultivating research partnerships between engineers and clinicians that are intended to help translate promising technologies into better patient care. Mark Grinstaff, an ENG associate biomedical engineering professor and College of Arts and Sciences associate chemistry professor, is the other new site miner.

“The job of the site miners is to sift through the various projects and expertise ongoing at each campus, to try and mine the gems that have some sort of natural affinity for one another,” says Mark Klempner, a MED professor and the associate provost for research at the Medical Campus, which along with the College of Engineering and the Office of Technology Development is funding the positions. Every two years, an administrative committee will appoint one clinical site miner from the Medical Campus and one engineering site miner from the Charles River Campus.

“I think there’s a tremendous opportunity, because of the resources that are here, both in engineering and the medical school,” says Grinstaff, who researches synthesized biomaterials with uses ranging from sealing eye wounds to delivering cancer drugs. 

Grinstaff and O’Connor are scientific matchmakers who will seek out the technologies that hold the most promise for improving health-care practice and vice versa, looking into clinical challenges that might have technology-based solutions. They’ll meet with each other to discuss what they’ve found, and they’ll arrange meetings where potential collaborations can be discussed and critiqued by the engineers and clinicians themselves. 

But the site miners’ work will not end there. “It’s not just about identifying innovative ideas,” explains Kenneth Lutchen, an ENG professor and biomedical engineering department chairman. After promising matches are made, the site miners will help researchers apply for grants needed for further research such as making prototypes that could be used in human trials.

Lutchen says the site miners are part of ongoing, University-wide efforts to “help move innovation from the lab to the bedside.” These efforts were recently given a boost by the Wallace H. Coulter Foundation, which awarded Boston University a five-year, $2.9 million grant to foster translational research in biomedical engineering, the funding source that O’Connor and Suki hope will help fund human trials of the mechanical ventilation system.

“There is a lot of potential that just wasn’t being tapped,” says O’Connor, who adds that the separation between the two campuses made it easy to overlook the possibilities for collaboration. “They’re over there, and we’re over here, and we weren’t really aware of what everybody was up to.”

Nevertheless, the human connections are just as important as money when it comes to finding technology that can improve patient care, says Ashley Stevens, director of the Office of Technology Development. Stevens says that about two thirds of the inventions that his office works to license and bring to market originate from either the Medical Campus or the College of Engineering. He even gives the Boston University Shuttle (the BUS) some credit for bridging those two sources of innovation since it began running more frequently and reliably in the fall of 2004.

“It’s such a people process,” Stevens says, and that’s where Grinstaff and O’Connor think they’ll have the biggest impact.

Why Silicon Valley Never Dies

The leading indicator of the health of Silicon Valley– how bad the traffic is – tells me that the Valley is back — big time.

This wasn’t supposed to happen. According to Larry Ellison, Dave Troy, Jordan DiPietro, Judy Estrinand many others, who have declared the end of Silicon Valley over the years, the age of rampant innovation and free-flowing capital are supposed to be long gone.

But if that’s true, why does it suddenly take an hour to make a 15-mile commute at rush hour?

Everybody’s talking about the new tech bubble. While some embrace the bubble theory (the growth will end in a crash), others believe in the boom theory (the growth will moderate over time), there’s no question that there’s a lot of money flying around in Silicon Valley.

Fueled by rumors of a failed $6 billion acquisition of Groupon by Google, as well as the ripeness of privately-held social giants like Facebook and Twitterfor IPO or acquisition, the bubble chatter is focused on the big deals by the biggest companies.

But all these high-visibility cases involve non-acquisitions – companies that have refused, failed or otherwise opted out of acquisition – which are the opposite of what is actually fueling the boom.

The real cause is a newish phenomenon whereby startups pursue acquisition as a strategy far more than before.

Here’s what’s going on. The pace of innovation continues to accelerate. This makes it more difficult for the big companies to compete with new technology. Big companies are bogged down by silos, politics and bureaucratic processes that make nimble flexibility very difficult. So they buy.

Meanwhile when the recession hit and large companies faced sudden reductions in revenue, they found it necessary to cut spending to make their numbers. Naturally, they slashed research and development budgets.

Now that revenue is picking up again, they find themselves with cash but lacking new technology. So they take their cash and buy technology in the form of a small-company acquisition.

The shift at larger companies from developing to buying new technology has triggered a shift in the strategies of both startups and venture capitalists.

The traditional objective of startups was to grow the technology and business and infrastructure to the point where the company could be self-sustaining, profitable and publicly traded — not necessarily in that order. That was the old vision, and there are still some companies trying to do this.

The new objective is simply to develop the next killer technology, service or business model while remaining “agnostic” about how money will be made. In other words, acquisition has been legitimized as the most likely way to monetize an idea for the inventors.

That actually lowers the risk for VCs. The reason is that, unlike before, a company doesn’t need to excel at all aspects of the business in order for them to recoup their investment. All they need is the right technology, which usually comes with the kind of people.

Who cares if they don’t know how to run a business, can’t sell or have some other failing? The cash rich tech giants don’t care about any of this.

As a result of this lower risk, and higher likelihood of monetization, investing in tech startups has become more appealing. And so the money is really flowing and valuations are through the roof.

There are other benefits to big companies to buying, rather than developing, new technology. Acquisition provides more control. Instead of being stuck with whatever approach is developed internally, big companies can just go shopping for the best one — or the one that’s already been proved in the market.

Microsoft’S Folding “Andromeda” Surface Leaks Again

Microsoft’s folding “Andromeda” Surface leaks again

The much-rumored Microsoft Andromeda dual-screen folding tablet will launch as a “pocketable Surface,” according to the latest leak. Andromeda first broke cover amid the rumor mill last year, as a new Windows 10 device that would build on cutting-edge hardware and software development within the company.

On the hardware side, Microsoft was said to be looking at new, foldable and rollable OLED technology. Although dual-screen devices have been tried – and have, for the most part, failed – before, they’ve always used two separate panels. Andromeda, it was suggested, would go a significant step beyond that, and use a single display that could be folded in half for a more pocket-friendly form factor.

Andromeda would make heavy use of Windows Core OS, meanwhile, a more flexible platform for Windows 10 devices that would allow hardware-makers to be more selective with the functionality of those gadgets. Changes in the way Windows handles interfaces would not only allow Andromeda to rescale its UI to suit a smaller form-factor, but also whether the whole screen or just half of it was in use.

Since then, several rumors – and patent applications for foldable tablets – have surfaced, lending weight to the idea of all-new devices. A new leak today indicates that not only is Andromeda real, but it’s being positioned as an addition to – and a key waypoint for – the Surface range.

“It’s a new pocketable Surface device form factor that brings together innovative new hardware and software experiences to create a truly personal and versatile computing experience,” an internal document, leaked to The Verge, explains of the new gadget. Currently, the Surface line-up includes tablets, laptops with removable tablet displays and all-in-one desktop PCs. Andromeda, though, would be a “disruptive” device category, the document suggests, that sits somewhere between the traditional divide of “PC” and “mobile” hardware. Aesthetically it’s believed to resemble these concept designs by David Breyer from late last year.

It’s all reminiscent of Microsoft’s Courier, a project from 2009 that paired two touchscreens in a folio-style device. Intended as a digital vision of an “infinite journal,” Courier would support both finger and stylus input, relying on OneNote – Microsoft’s digital note-taking app – to store all manner of content. Unlike Andromeda, though, Courier’s design was envisaged as using two separate screens.

Of course, Microsoft could also decide to yank the plug altogether. That’s what happened with production plans for the original Courier device, and it happened again when the Surface Mini – a smaller version of the Surface focused on tablet use – was canceled reportedly weeks before it had been intended to launch.

According to today’s leak, there’s still plenty to be decided before an Andromeda Surface launch is anywhere close to being ready. Some of the prototypes apparently use ARM-based chipsets, though a final decision hasn’t been expressed on if production hardware would follow suit or look to Intel instead. Various different prototype form-factors are also being internally tested: it’s uncertain what screen sizes they might use, among other hardware details.

Still, Microsoft is said to be tentatively aiming for a 2023 launch. As with the Surface Book, which serves double-duty both as a product in its own right and as Microsoft’s hope to inspire Windows notebook-makers to up their game in terms of hardware design and functionality, Andromeda would be a nudge to OEMs to take more form-factor risks. Along those lines, Intel has been showing off dual-display reference designs of late, and Lenovo is known to be readying a new Yoga Book 2 which would have a regular touchscreen on the upper half, an e-paper keyboard on the lower half, and a 360-degree hinge linking the two.

Using Your Ios Device As A Remote

This is something I never even considered until my son came home from college. He had picked up a used iPod Touch from a friend and didn’t have the same music on it that we have  downloaded to our house iTunes account. He could have downloaded it from the cloud, but instead, he logged onto Remote and iTunes and played the music he wanted through one of our laptops.

Once you open Remote, you have two choices: Turn on Home Sharing and Add an iTunes Library. Before you add anything, Home Sharing needs to be turned on.

Turning on Home Sharing asks you to log into your account with the Apple ID and password. This isn’t necessarily the same ID and password of the computer you’re using, but yours. It’s how Apple keeps track of you.

Once you are signed in with your Apple ID, the app asks you to turn on “Home Sharing” on any computer using your Apple ID and iTunes.

Once Home Sharing is turned on, the iTunes logo pops up, along with your library on your desktop or laptop computer. If you have multiple computers using your Apple ID, all of those would show up.

Not only can you “see” what’s inside the library, you can also control the play. From here, you can stop, pause, forward, and reverse, as well as control the volume. The volume isn’t coming out of your Apple device, but the desktop or laptop computer. You can also create Genius libraries at this point.

This leaves this library as yet another option in the Remote app. Opening it not only allows you to play the computers that are using your Apple ID, but also the computers you have set up that are not. Your iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch can now be used as a Remote so that you can play music, movies, or TV from anywhere in your home or place of business. No longer do you have to go upstairs, go into another room, or go inside to change the music. You can do it all from where you’re sitting.
