Every year around the holidays, I start to get an anxious feeling. My mind and body instinctively know deep down what’s coming shortly after New Year’s Day: another grueling trek to (and, shudder, within) Las Vegas for the annual Consumer Electronics Show.
Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, now US Cellular and up next Sprint. That’s where you should look for Android 4.4 KitKat on Motorola’s Moto X, while the undervalued Republic Wireless version will reportedly have to wait until “early 2014”.
When the PowerPot first launched on Kickstarter, it turned into a huge success. Huge. Now the company is back on Kickstarter again with a newer level of “huge”. The PowerPot X and XL feature the same thermoelectric generation, but in a bigger size with more power.
Last month, Samsung released the Android 4.3 update for the Samsung Galaxy S3, which turned out to be a big mess and forced the Korean OEM to pull he update due to wide range of issues. Today, Samsung resumed the Galaxy S3 Android 4.3 update and we’re hoping that they’ve fixed all the known issues and bugs that were present in the previous firmware such as inconsistent WiFi issues, very poor battery life, laggy performance, complete lock-up of the device on lock screen.
When HP and Walmart joined forces to unveil the umpteen budget-conscious 7-inch Android tablet around, they also introduced a nifty and rather unique concept. The modestly specced, dirt-cheap $90 Mesquite was to be sold exclusively during Black Friday 2013.
And the Nokia Lumia 929 leaks Saga continues. Today, more images of the purported Nokia Lumia 929 surfaced from Mexico, showing us glimpses of the alleged handset.
Up for grabs from an array of stateside retailers, with or without contracts, Nokia’s proudest Lumia family members yet, the 1520 and 2520, have earlier today gone on sale in the UK as well.
Weren’t we supposed to have universal mobile phone charging by now? I think I remember hearing that discussed at various conferences and in position papers about technology standards. But we’re not there yet- Apple’s insistence on the new proprietary Lightning connector starting with the iPhone 5 may have had something to do with that- and so until then, we’ll have to be content with the Digital Treasures ChargeIt! Universal Power Bank. And I certainly am.
Ever get toasted with your friends late night and come up with a great (or at least intriguing) idea? “Wilfred” star Elijah Wood and his Wooden Wisdom DJ partner Zach Cowie did. And they came up with what we believe are the first headphones to be made of whiskey barrels.
Talk about rock-solid sources of classified intel. We used to think there was no one more reliable than Twitter insider @evleaks and no publication with a cleaner track record than Wall Street Journal.
Here we are-it’s the beginning of December and suddenly the holidays are beginning to feel very real. And if you’re like me, you took one look at those Black Friday lines and said “nah, I’ll just get my holiday shopping done later.” Well folks, it’s go time and I’m here to save you some stress. The Soundfreaq Sound Spot is the perfect gift for everyone on your holiday list, except maybe your roommate who likes to play music AT ALL HOURS OF THE NIGHT. So let’s cut to the chase.
Need a great, unique gift for that picky gamer? Razer might just have what you’re looking for.
