Catalyst releases new line of waterproof sleeve for tablets, laptops

Rugged tech accessories producer, Catalyst, has introduced a new line of protective waterproof sleeves for use with tablets, laptops and even documents. Suitable for commuters and students, the Catalyst Waterproof Sleeve aims to offer a minimalist design with an IP66 waterproof rating. The sleeves feature a double-lock watertight closure that is capable of completely sealing out rain, snow, dirt, spills and brief submersions underwater. Its strap system can be adjusted for use as a backpack, a single-shoulder sling bag, or the sleeve can be used simply as a protective case layer.

The Catalyst Waterproof Sleeve is available in three sizes -- eight-inch ($40), 11-inch ($45), and 15-inch ($55), and can be purchased online though Catalyst.

Ooloo app for iOS and Android answers voice-search queries via live 24/7 staff

A new app service from online backup service IDrive has been released, offering users answers from a live staff for voice-search queries. Ooloo, available for iOS and Android, works by tapping to then speak a question, with the option to tag it with specific categories. Ooloo's assistants note your location, and provide a response to one's query. The answer is sent to the user, who can rate it as "Awesome," "Good," or "Meh." Ooloo is free to download, and is available through iTunes and Google Play.
