Posted in GE by Shane McGlaun on July 15th, 2010

There is an app for everything on the iPhone. Many of the apps are for things that I never really needed or wanted though. A strange new app from GE has surfaced that lets the user take a picture of a room of their house with the iPhone camera.

Once the pic is taken the app then lets the user apply lighting filters to the pic to get an idea what different light moods would look like. If you find a lighting mood that you want, you can get a list of the bulbs to get to set the mood.

GE has announced a new digital camera called the G3WP that can not only get wet and survive, but can actually be used under water to depths of 10 feet. Power for the camera comes from an internal rechargeable battery and it has several other features that you expect in a modern point-and-shoot camera.

Google gets 411 button on new GE home phones

Posted in Telephones by Nino Marchetti on February 7th, 2008

ge-google.jpgNormally we give traditional wireless home phones about as much attention around here as talking moose heads on the wall, but when the New York Times points out one which might be cool we have to check it out. They in fact seem to be right – the forthcoming GE Premiere DECT 6.0 28821FJ3 has a nifty GOOG-411 button centered for you to press for business information calls.

GOOG-411 you say? Isn’t that a Google property? That’s right – Thomson and Google inked a little paid attention to deal at CES last month which brings the one-touch, auto-dial GOOG-411 button functionality to a number of its 2008 DECT 6.0 Interference Free phones. This feature is tied to Google’s free, voice-activated, business directory assistance service and will actually be part of more than a dozen GE phones, available in April.
