GearEye is a product currently on indiegogo that wants to help you manage your gear.  If you're a one man band you know that keeping track of equipment is a difficult part of the job. We each have our own organizational tricks and methods, but in the back of our heads is always the possibility of a lost or stolen item of equipment.  Whether it's an SD card, radio mic kit or something else, we want to be able to keep complete track of our kit.  This stuff was expensive after all!

Gear Eye works by using RFID tags and a companion app to keep track of what you have and what you may be missing.  Just tag your gear, log it into the app and keep track of it in a streamilned way.  This product is not yet available, but it looks like it's going to be coming to you soon.

Bad News, Good News

The old news mantra — if it bleeds, it leads has been replaced by if it’s gross, adios. The prospect of a news-free electorate is terrifying.


The news business is in trouble. In the past decade, more than 2400 local newspapers have closed. NBC Nightly News gets 5 million viewers per night, in a nation of 340 million people, so most people are not watching. What are they watching? Netflix.


For most of human history, people lived in a world without news. The concept simply did not exist. The idea of news is really a 19th-century phenomenon, driven first by newspapers, and then by electronic media which brought us radio, then TV and now the web. Now, it seems, we are headed back to a world without news. Not because the technology is not there, but rather because, increasingly, people are no longer interested in news, at least in the way it is packaged now.
