It seems like I’m always excited about wrist worn gadgets until I actually strap them to my wrist. Once I do, I quickly tire of them. I was hoping the LG G Watchwould buck that trend.

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.
Up until now, any Bluetooth or Airplay speakers were dependent on the device that was doing the streaming, whether it be a laptop, smartphone or desktop computer. It’s no big deal that the new, portable auris zwing portable speaker/boombox does that, but it will also do it independently of any device—as in all by itself.
CES is just around the corner so expect more leaked photos, information, and rumors to come up left and right.
