From Handbags to Hand Drills: Slyce will find it for you

Standard

One of the most incredible things that smartphones have accomplished since their advent was making purchases possible almost anywhere. It doesn’t matter whether you’re hiking through the woods or sitting on your couch; where there’s signal, there’s a way. Despite this, smartphones still aren’t always able to answer one of the most commonly heard questions in North America: “Where did you get those shoes?”

That’s where Slyce comes in. Slyce is a Toronto based visual product recognition technology company that has created mobile and desktop software that allows its users to simply take a picture of the product they want, and so long as it is in recognizable condition they can buy it right through the app. Many companies have attempted to create similar software in the past, however these apps come with limitations not found in Slyce. Amazon Flow for example, allows users to take a picture of what they want and buy the item through Amazon. The problem however is that the item must be in the original packaging for it to be recognizable. So what about when you see someone on the bus with a cool pair of shoes or a cute purse you just have to have? Odds are those products will not be in the original packaging. That’s where Slyce really shines. It does not matter if the item is packaged or not, just take a picture and Slyce will search through thousands of products online to find it for you. Sound too good to be true? Check out Slyce’s website, it provides an excellent demo of how the software works on its technology page.

Finding the product should be no issue either. Slyce has paired with many big-name retailers such as Target, J.C. Penney, Toys “R” Us, and Home Depot to provide the widest range of products as possible to consumers. Whether it’s a pair of heels, a drill press, or even an Optimus Prime action figure, Slyce will be able to find it for you at a good price. The software can be used anywhere, and it can also find the items you want by taking a picture of a television or print advertisement. Just in case you have to be sure you get the exact item you’re looking for, you can even use it to scan the barcode, though this is certainly not necessary to find an perfect match. Slyce is an extremely fast growing company, and may very well be supported by even more large retailers in the near future. So the next time you see that shirt you need on your friend, your sibling, or even a stranger, just snap a picture and let Slyce take care of the rest.

Tablets And Cell Phones Are Welcome On FreedomPop’s Mobile Wireless Services

Standard

The size of cell phones has changed so much over the years that it’s hard to keep up. Some people say that fashion trends will recycle themselves after so many years, and it seems as if cell phone trends are doing the same thing. Cell phones were very big when they started being used about 20 years ago, and then people demanded that their cell phones become smaller. Smaller cell phones started showing up everywhere, and people began to be happy with them, but then smartphones came into play. When smartphones came in, the phones came to be small in size, but now smartphones can be extremely large. A tablet’s similar to a smartphone, except for the fact that most of them cannot make phone calls.

The average sized tablet is seven inches in size, and there are many smartphones these days that are up to 6 inches in size, which mimics the average tablet sizes out there today. It seems unbelievable that a person would want such a big cell phone, especially when they have to find cases to outfit it in. People tend to like smartphones that are very large in size because it’s like having a tablet and a smartphone in one. Although people can use a tablet that has cell phone capabilities, some prefer not to have a phone that’s so big, but many of the smartphones these days are not much smaller than regular sized tablets.
