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.

What is a flagship? For some companies, it's about cramming as many features into a device as physics allows. For Huawei, it means something else entirely: Though it creates smartphones for the power-hungry crowd, its most eye-catching devices typically favor mass appeal over brawn. Exhibit A: theAscend P7, a smartphone that emphasizes design and user-friendliness over a blowsy spec sheet.
So many Ultrabooks in ourlaptop buyer's guide: Not one with a 15-inch screen. Which is strange, because it seemed for a while that bigger-screen ultraportables were going to become a thing; HP, Sony and ASUS all tried their hand at super-light 15-inch machines. Two years later, though, Samsung is one of the only companies that's still at it.
When it comes to ASUS, buying a full-size Android tablet has usually meant venturing past the $300 mark; even theTransformer Book T100set you back $349 when it first came out, and that was considered a steal. That's no longer a problem in 2014. ASUS' newTransformer Pad TF103Ccosts $299 with the company's signature keyboard dock included, or as much as some smaller mid-range slates.
There have been a large number of Bluetooth audio devices reviewed here on The Gadgeteer lately! Well, they are pretty popular devices. Especially Bluetooth speakers. They free you from the tangle of cables, after all! What we have on offer here for your consideration is the Inateck BP-2001 Portable Bluetooth Speaker.
Last month was a special one for Max Pogliani: Not only did it mark hisfirst anniversaryas Vertu's CEO, but it also saw the launch of his very own baby, the Android-poweredSignature Touch. This new phone's up-to-date specs have already silenced critics; and despite the luxury market's slowdown, the Italian exec said his team's already ahead of budget in the first half of this year.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The recently announced RHA T10i (US$199.95) noise-isolating, in-ear headphones take top-shelf in RHA's lineup of fantastic headphones. According to RHA, the T10i headphones take precedence over the MA750i ( read my review here ), which have been my everyday headphones over the last year or so.
A little while ago I reviewed the Sonos Play:1 speaker . I was thrilled with how the speaker packed a real punch in sound, performance and design. Over the last few weeks I've had the addition of the the Sonos Play:3 (US$299) and Play:5 (US$399) to add to the Play:1, creating a truly wireless sound system for three rooms in my flat.
I’ve been reviewing a few Bluetooth speakers lately and while some are copy-cat versions that show little imagination in design or audio quality, others are unique enough to garner attention. The Creative Sound Blaster Roar speaker falls into that unique category. In some ways, maybe it’s too unique (more on that later).
It will also connect with a PlayStation 4, allowing you to play PS4 games on another TV in your house, using what it calls Remote Play. The only caveat is that a wired internet network connection is necessary.The PlayStation TV will be $99 for the system itself. You'll also need to buy a DualShock 3 controller, which must be purchased separately and costs about $40.
