CNET Builds an Incredible Smart Home, Learn About iOS9 Before You Download It, and More In Five for Wednesday


  1. Every REALTOR® interested in smart home technology should keep an eye on all the research and testing CNET will be producing from the stuffed-to-the-gills-with-technology house they just set up outside of Louisville.
  2. Take this tour of iOS9’s new look and features before you download it later today.
  3. Want to donate to a political candidate? Twitter just made it really easy to do so.
  4. Uncharted Play makes soccer balls and jump ropes that store the energy that’s produced when they’re used; they come with an outlet into which electronics can be plugged. Buy one and Uncharted Play will provide one to a child in an energy-poor part of the world.
  5. Google will match the first €5 million in donations to assist in the ongoing refugee and migrant crisis in Europe and the Middle East. Doctors Without Borders, International Rescue Committee, Save the Children, and the UN High Commissioner for Refugees are the non-profits that will receive the money. Nice to see good things coming from our tech community.
