Crowdfunding is one of the "new" tech economy's sharpest double-edged blades. While it has served as a legitimate platform for fans to support products and content they genuinely believe in and want to see become a reality, it is also ripe for scamming and incompetence.

Runtastic Libra Bluetooth Scale Lightning Review: Yeah, It Finally Supports Android

Some number of months ago (I forget how many), I decided I needed to lose some weight. Using MyFitnessPal to monitor my food intake/calories and Runtastic's suite of apps to track my cycling activities, I was able to knock off something like 45 pounds. I've since gained back about 10 of those pounds for various reasons, but I'm finally getting back on top of things so I can get back to where I want to be.

A big part of weight loss is having a good, accurate scale. While there are plenty of options out there, one with Bluetooth connectivity can simplify your weight loss journey since it can essentially automate weight tracking.

Meerkat Live Video Streaming App Exits Its Invite-Only Burrow, Sticks Its Head Out Onto Google Play As A Public Beta

Meerkat integrates with your Twitter account to let you stream live video to the world (or at least anyone who clicks on your feed). If you've been waiting to play around with the service, or this idea just sounds invigorating to you, Meerkat is now exiting its invite-only beta and opening itself up to everyone on Google Play.

I hopped into the app long enough to watch a truck driver talk about his route and what he's hauling, see some guy chat really quickly in front of a computer, and start my own brief stream of a Chromebook sitting atop a desk.

LG Releases LG Call For Android Wear, Triggers Nerd-Rage Because It's Only For The Watch Urbane

LG just released an interesting new Wear app that allows you to initiate calls on your phone from the watch UI. Does that sound like something you want? Well, you probably can't have it because LG Call is only for the new Watch Urbane. If only LG had made that more clear, the reviews would be less vitriolic.

[Live From New York] NBC Releases Saturday Night Live App Complete With Clips, Emoji, And More

Saturday Night Live has brought sketch comedy to weekends for decades, and over the course of that time, NBC has come up with various ways to make sure the skits stick with viewers for the remainder of the week. Its latest approach is to create a dedicated app that you can take everywhere and fill with enough shots of nostalgia to give a committed fan an overdose.

You can download this app to stream all the clips you want without subscribing to anything, and it really only takes a couple of taps to find yourself watching a playlist that takes you down memory lane and leaves you snickering uncomfortably at the back of the bus.
