Acclaimed audio makers Bang & Olufsen are no strangers to the mobile industry, but here at CES 2015 they are unveiling some rather interesting products that represent a few firsts. Among these is the Play H8 headphones. B & O are positioning this as their first wireless headphones, but they are definitely more than just that.
CES day three brought interesting tidbits, but nothing monumental. If nothing more, we got to see some really interesting things we might actually want to buy rather than the 80-inch TV we know we won’t even look twice at next time we’re shopping. There were also some eye-rollers, as well as some cool home automation gadgets you might be interested in.
So, you now own the ultimate mobile device and have decked it out with the best accessories. But what about portable speakers? If you are Bang & Olufsen, you design the BEOPLAY A2. The A2 is a 10.1″ x 5.6″ x 1.7″, 2.4 pound, rechargeable, Bluetooth 4.
Inside the newly announced Audi Q7, the newest version of Audi virtual cockpit will run the show. Users will be working with a new MMI all-in touch control unit, and both Google Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are also able to be run to connect to users' iPhone or Android smartphone.
Bang & Olufsen has a few wares on display here at CES 2015, but undoubtedly the most eye-catching piece of them all is the BeoSound Moment, a sound system, practically a sound system controller in the form of a large tablet-like slab, that has a few gimmicks up its sleeve.
It takes a special kind of crazy to show up to the biggest consumer electronics show on Earth, to pay for an exhibition space next to Oculus VR and then advertise your product as an "Oculus killer." That's exactly what 3DHead did with its "GCS3" headset. That phrase is even painted on their booth, as seen above.
A periscope. An asthma inhaler. We’ve even heard the RE from HTC referred to as other things we won’t print, but one thing remains clear: HTC wants you snapping more pics. With the RE, HTC is moving past their time as a phone maker, and headlong into the world of accessories.
The first thing you should be saying when you hear that Key and Peel are coming to Chromecast is NOOICE. Viacom has announced that the Comedy Central app will be bringing their most highly-rated comedy series to the Chromecast streaming universe very, very soon. This includes South Park, Key & Peel, and a whole lot more.
When Samsung announceda trio of audio productsahead of CES, the two egg-shaped speakers immediately grabbed my eye. Obviously, these don't look like regular ol' in-home gear, and while Bang & Olufsen has been making said audio techmore decorativefor quite some time, an affordable entry would certainly be welcome.
When it comes to headphones thesedays you have a whole world of choices out there. Along with those choices comes an array of features and price points. Bluetooth is one of the features becoming more popular, but wireless connectivity usually comes at a higher price. Mpow is bucking that high price trend by introducing the Muze Touch Bluetooth headphones.
Since streaming music has become more popular, it should come as no surprise that home stereo systems are starting to get a connected makeover. This could be the year that Sonos, the longtime leader in this field, gets some competition.
As a diehard fan of my Roku ($99), I was unsure of what to expect from the Amazon Fire Stick. I have also tried Chromecast and Apple TV in the past, but I have always been pretty partial to the Roku experience: the ability to stream Netflix, Hulu, HBO, Showtime, and yes, Amazon, from my television.Plus, there's the bonus of not needing to purchase anything from my cable provider.
OPPO , which already has a large following in China, came into mainstream Android consciousness last year because of the OPPO N1 . Or to be more precise, because of its ties with CyanogenMod as the first OEM to ship with the custom ROM out of the box, at least partially.
When I’m considering a new pair of earphones, I usually skip the in-ear variety because they seem to always fall out of my ears and I don’t like the noise isolation feature that they usually possess. When Moshi Audio approached me to ask if I would be interested in reviewing theirClarus earphones, their ear loop design intrigued me, so I said yes.
Back in August, Facebook messenger became obligatory. I ran a column called Yes, you DO want Facebook Messenger that many Facebook users were shockingly opposed to. But it's been barely 3 months and Facebook has already announced it: they've reached a tipping point. They already have 500 million users using - not just having downloaded - using Messenger each month.
Over the years, I’ve had the chance to review several small, wooden speakers from Pyramid Distribution. You’ll find links to those reviews at the end of this review. I had assumed those cute little speakers, shaped like acorns or Scottie dogs, would be more fun than functional, but I was proven wrong by every one of those I reviewed.
There's no question that IBM is undergoing a huge and painful transformation . Chairman and CEO Ginni Rometty is doing a lot of things right to navigate IBM through it. But Tuesday was a pivotal day for the company and she was no where to be seen, missing a chance to show leadership. On Tuesday, IBM announced its fourth quarter earnings and offered guidance for 2015.
Last year Hooked Digital Media released Haunting Melissa , a serialized horror movie that was exclusive to iOS. Earlier this week the group released the sequel, Dark Hearts , which picks up where its predecessor left off. There's more creepy goodness here, released one chapter at a time.
There are a few fun things about the "Melissa" movies, as I've begun to call them.
