Best beach tech

Digital Crave

When you get to the beach you want to be able to stay at the beach. That means packing a good beach bag and being ready for a day away from the comforts of home. Some people need only a good book, sunscreen and a towel. Others want to bring a little bit of home with them. Here's a list of five cool beach items that make it easy for you to bring the tech you need to the beach you love.

1. Phoenix Wireless Bluetooth Speaker

This little speaker is smaller than a cup of coffee and plenty powerful. The wireless speaker uses the Bluetooth feature on your enabled device to provide you with plenty of sound — enough for a large room or any sized beach blanket bingo you've got going on — within 35 feet of your cell phone/MP3 player/etc. It weighs just seven ounces, looks sharp and is easy to use. There's an auxiliary input for any non-Bluetooth devices and a lithium battery capable of eight hours of continuous playback.

2. Original V-Neck Sleeve

This is not your average V-Neck. At first glance it looks like there's a Gap employee somewhere looking for a gold star in folding techniques. On closer inspection this product is revealed to be a unique way to protect your iPad or Macbook. With additional pockets to store your phone, chargers and paperwork, the V-Neck Sleeve stands out from the crowd of plastic, "me-too" device cases. And it's machine washable. The sleeve is available in five colors and costs from $39.99 to $59.99.

3. Fanny Wang headphones

You see a lot of folks wearing noise-canceling headphones on airplanes, but they may be better suited to a busy beach day. If you want to carve out a little peace and quiet on a busy day at the beach, these are a fashionable and effective way to keep the outside world out. The headphones effectively eliminate over 95 percent of ambient noise, allowing you to listen to your music undisturbed wherever you are. The unit comes with 50mm titanium dual-plated drivers and a lot of other high-tech specs to justify their significant price ($299.95). If you want your music to be as awesome as the view at the beach, these are for you.

4. The Beach Safe

You bring a lot of important things with you to the beach — keys, phone, and money. How do you keep them safe while you're taking a swim? Try the U.L.O. Beach Safe ($24.95). It attaches to your beach umbrella and includes a resettable TSA-approved combination lock. Its overlapping edges keep the sand out and its white color and styling blends with the underside of your umbrella. It's a simple solution for keeping your valuables safe while your jumping the waves.

5. Underwater Digital Camera Mask

Now this is pretty cool. The Liquid Image Explorer Series 5.0MP Underwater Digital Camera Mask allows for hands-free use and is built with tough tempered glass lenses and an integrated crosshairs for lining up shots ($99.00). It operates at a depth of 15 feet and has 16 MB of built-in memory. There's also a MicroSD card slot, USB port for downloads and PC-only image editing software.

    • Reheating Rice Can Give You Food Poisoning If You Don't Do This

      Although reheating takeout when you're too busy to cook is one of life's great pleasures, leftover rice can actually be scarily bad for you, the NHS say. Because if you didn't already know, you can get a pretty grim case of food poisoning from eating reheated rice; it's not the reheating that causes the problem, but instead the way the rice has been stored after being cooked the first time. So uncooked rice often contains spores (cells capable of reproducing quickly) of Bacillus cereus — a bacteria strand that can cause food poisoning — that can survive when rice is cooked. And if the rice is left standing at room temperature after it's been boiled, the spores can grow into bacteria, which will

    • Three burglars entered an Oklahoma home. The owner’s son opened fire with an AR-15, deputies say.

      Gunfire rang out Monday afternoon in a home in Broken Arrow, an Oklahoma city 15 miles southeast of Tulsa. Three intruders were killed after the son of the homeowner fired a semiautomatic rifle in what local law enforcement officers later described as an act of self-defense, though their investigation remains open. The intruders — a 16-year-old, a 17-year-old and a man thought to be 18 or 19 — had smashed open the back door of the house, the Wagoner County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement posted to Facebook. Their plan was burglary, authorities said. They wore gloves, masks and all-black clothes, Wagoner County Deputy Nick Mahoney told Tulsa World. Two of the teenagers were armed, one with

    • Homeowner’s son kills three would-be burglars with AR-15

      Three would-be robbers were shot and killed Monday when an Oklahoma homeowner’s son opened fire on them with an AR-15, authorities said. Wagoner County sheriff’s deputies were called to the home in Broken Arrow, southeast of Tulsa at around 12:30 p.m. local time. When they arrived, they found the three dead suspects and two uninjured residents. Sheriff’s spokesman Deputy Nick Mahoney said the suspects enetered the home through a glass back door with the intent to burglarize it. It was not immediately clear why they picked that home. Mahoney said the suspects encountered the homeowner’s 19-year-old son, who opened fire after an exchange of words. Two of the suspects died in the home’s kitchen

    • NASA just captured a photo of Jupiter that you won’t believe is real

      NASA has managed to capture some pretty stunning photos of all the cool stuff they've spotted over the years, and rarely does it fail to amaze. There's images of planet surfaces, the rings of Saturn, and even black holes flying through space totally unchecked . Rarely, however, does a photo look so unreal that at first glance you'd be likely to mistake it for a work of Earthling art. A new photo captured by NASA's Juno spacecraft falls into that category, and oh what a sight it is. The image, originally taken by Juno's "JunoCam" camera, was taken in early February and shows Jupiter's ever-swirling mass of storm clouds from an altitude of roughly 9,000 miles. The storms which continually rock the planet take on a milky appearance when captured up close, and a citizen scientist named Roman Tkachenko took the liberty of enhancing the photo's colors to bring out even more of the defining lines and edges. The Juno craft, packed with all kinds of fancy monitoring equipment, made its fifth flyby of the planet on Monday, which is also the fourth "science orbit," which is the name they give the flybys when all the instruments on board are up and running. The craft's next flyby won't happen until late May 2017, so it's a rare and exciting event when one of these close passes goes by without a hitch. The craft's data is currently being sent to Earth where researchers will continue to mine it for precious information about our solar system's most intimidating planet.
