BACtrack C6 Review: Keychain Breathalyzer – Drink Responsibly!

BACtrack C6 review! A rad piece of lifestyle tech. A night out drinking with friends can be fun, but we want to make sure it stays fun. There’s a stigma to using products like breathalyzers out in public, but BACtrack delivers one of the most discrete products I’ve ever tested. The C6 is a breathalyzer you can keep on your keychain and it delivers police grade accuracy for a crazy low price. Track your results with an app on your phone, or help your friends and family track their drinking when out and about. I put the BACtrack C6 through its paces out in Las Vegas, here were my results!

It Can Wait Expands Message From Texting to Smartphone Use

I’m a big fan of the It Can Wait campaign, which works to reduce the number of traffic injuries and fatalities by educating people on the dangers of distracted driving.

NR size-01

One key problem with their messaging however, has been the focus on “texting while driving”. As we now live most of our lives out of our phones. For many of us, the phrase “distracted driving” has been far more important, as there seems to be little functional difference in preoccupying a driver with a text over a Tweet, Facebook message, IM, email, or any other notification and interaction.

Happily It Can Wait is now moving their conversation to smartphone use of any kind. It’s a vitally important conversation for folks to have, as we move towards a world with more data enabled services, and we’re still a ways off from self-driving cars being the norm…

Review: App Trains You to Become a Better Driver

It’s rare that I find an app which instantly becomes a “must download” service for my phone. Providing a one-stop shop for all of my vehicle mileage and maintenance tracking, Dash became a mandatory service for me after about two days of use.

Connecting to your car’s computer via a Bluetooth OBDII adapter, and utilizing the sensors in your phone, Dash provides Fitbit style tracking and alerts. It aims to make you a better driver, and hopefully that will save you money in fuel and maintenance costs.

Let’s check out all the features on tap in this free app!
