We’ve seen Qualcomm’s new take on biometrics , it’s only now we realize it has a proper name – the Qualcomm Snapdragon Sense ID biometrics. It’s distinctly different from the way Apple and Samsung has envisioned biometric security for devices – that is, through a capacitive button.

A decent set of luggage is almost paramount these days when doing extensive or long travel. While polycarbonate luggage is usually a little more durable and lighter, it often only comes in a clam shell design (basically the suitcase zippers down the middle and opens with two equal size sides).
Believe it or not, LG already has an upgraded version of its luxuriousWatch Urbane: meet theWatch Urbane LTE, a souped-up version that focuses on speedy mobile data. The timepiece (which isn't using Android Wear) isn't as substantial a phone replacement asSamsung's Gear S, but it will let you leave your handset at home sometimes.
See that wooden round thing above? That's a smartphone -- a real, working smartphone with a high-res screen and a camera, and not just a concept that will never come to life. Just imagining how to take calls on it without a headset or how to access websites on it is giving us a headache, but it's sure a good way to stand out in a world dominated by rectangular devices.
Living in the Midwest, we getmore than our fair share of inclement weather. As I type this, in January, it is -8 F air temp with -27 F wind chill. Brisk, baby. Well, more like painful. I’ve tried many types of winter coats over the years, but I hadn’t owned a “puffy” coat since I was a kid.

If the Fiat 500 is an icon reborn, then why wouldn’t people want even more of an icon on their driveway? That’s the question the 2016 Fiat 500X arrives to address, slotting with Italian panache into the fashionable urban crossover segment.
In all the lead-up to MWC, we’ve come across something from BlackBerry! This alleged device is actually pretty snappy, too. A mid-range device, the handset has reportedly ditched its ‘Rio’ moniker for the ‘Leap’ mid-range brand BlackBerry is believed to be launching. Sporting a composite shell, the handset doesn’t offer up many details, and we even see an OS that might be in early development.
Now that we’re through the MWC hump, it’s time to shift focus. We’ve got our Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, and HTC gave us the One M9 as expected. Motorola let loose a really good mid-range device, the Moto E with LTE, ahead of MWC, so that leaves LG to bring us a new Android handset.
