Phiaton announces next-gen BT 220 earbuds with ANC

If you’ve had the opportunity to get away from big cities for a night or two – like during a camping trip – you might have looked up at the sky to stare at stars. If the timing and location were right, it might have been a meteor shower show. Either way, there’s no contesting that a city’s air and light pollution really put a damper on celestial beauty.

Low on power? Galaxy devices share as battery packs

Despite our best intentions, sometimes our gadgets run out of power at the worst times.

TechnologyTell Review: Plantronics BackBeat FIT

When it comes to exercise, music is a driving force. Some studies have shown that people are less likely to commit to working out without music. However, not every set of headphones or earbuds are ideal when it comes to cords, sweat, and motion. It makes sense that a wireless product would pair well with activity.

Microsoft’s latest keyboard plays nice with Android, iOS

No matter how good the voice recognition or swipe-to-type software, nothing really beats a standard keyboard for writing notes or laying out ideas. There’s something about letting fingers hover, waiting to attack the keys with purpose, like a trapdoor spider snatching up unsuspecting prey. What? That’s not how the rest of you type?

TechnologyTell Review: Braven BRV-Bank battery pack

Earlier this year at CES 2014, Braven unveiled its BRV-Bank, the world’s first Bluetooth-enabled external battery pack. It’s designed rugged and waterproof, perfect for those with outdoor lifestyles. On top of that, the Braven BRV-Bank is packaged with a non-weenie flashlight. For serious! At CES, the BRV-Bank was only in a display case, but I recently had the chance to check one out in person.
