Since the Oxford Dictionaries named “selfie” the word of the year this week, the bar for quality ones has just gone up, and there’s a lot of new tech that aims to make them easier to take.
Yahoo News spotlights “#TheSelfie,” a remote-control device on a 4.5-foot cable that plugs into your iPhone or iPad’s headphone jack and allows you to snap a picture of yourself using Apple’s camera app. It costs $19.95 on GabbaGoods.com, though some have found it for $9.99 at T.J. Maxx.
You could buy that, or if you still have the white headset that came with your iPhone, you can take a selfie by pressing the “+” and “-” buttons. Learn something new every day!
