While I’ve raved before about Philips’ L-Prize LED lightbulb it is about to have its socks blown off!  Enter the LIFX via an already successful Kickstarter project launch.  The LIFX will be one of the first major “Internet of Things” product that makes a significant impact on a large scale.  With the ability to have every LED light bulb networked, dim-able, and controllable by your favorite smart device it will change the game of current home automation and lighting energy consumption.

lifx-wireless-led-light-bulbThe Kickstarter product video gives you a good initial picture of what to expect from networking each and every lightbulb of your home.  It lightly hints at one of the major benefits - time savings.  The video demonstrates the ability to control the LIFX via the device you have but what we will see as we continue down this path is a blending of the control that the LIFX brings combined with the motion sensing of something like the Wemo or another proximity or biometric sensor.

While the different colors of the LIFX are neat they’ll provide the ability to have the perfect lighting in any situation.  LIFX uses a master/slave concept to connect to your home router via 802.11n and then onto all the other LIFX smartbulbs via IPV6 802.15.4 mesh network.  And once LIFX hits the streets the LIFX Software Development Kit (SDK) will croudsource some major innovations in automation!  Want the house setup to simulate sunrise and sunset - do it!  As far as the fading night light - awesome.  Have the ability to fade it off for the little one to fall asleep while ensuring the child is afforded the great sleep that a very dark room provides.  Need to walk through the house light your entire path before hand.

One thing is sure - these wireless lights are going to be a significant game changer for home lighting, home automation, and lighting energy consumption.

I got to check out some of the new top of the line gear and the best screen protection technology has been producing while at CES at the beginning of the year.  I have always wondered why individuals take a gorgeous product like the new iPhone 5 and slap the ugliest and size negating case over these phenomenal Apple products.

While there is always a lag getting out new cases for any gadget Zagg already has the iPhone 5 Screen Protector available!  While most of us treat these new and very costly devices with the care they require micro scratches and dings from other items in our pockets or bags.  Zagg’s Screen protectors are the very best and every invisibleSHIELD purchase comes with a Lifetime Replacement Guarantee demonstrating Zagg’s confidence in their products.

We’ve discussed the ramifications and issues of Search Engine Optimization (and Exploitation) during Internet Information Operations.  Which Search Engine do you find yourself routinely using?  If you’re a betting individual the odds are heavily in favor of

If you are in the Internet Marketing sector you clearly favor  It provides the massive money roll that is Adsense.  Internet Marketers are motivated by one things - money.  This creates an entire infrastructure of White, Grey, and of course Blackhat Internet Marketers.

But if you are a standard consumer you’re being heavily skewed by the actions of Internet Marketers.  If you’re using you gain very little benefit other than a large propensity for those wanting to grab your views in one manner or another.  At least with Bing they are currently paying their users to conduct Internet searches via Bing Rewards.  Simply signing up with Bing and enrolling will provide you a minor benefit that will accumulate over time (slowly providing you things like $5 Amazon gift cards every few weeks).

Whatever you choose ensure you understand how you are being targeted by those wishing to gain a bit of the massive advertising dollars that is shelling out.
