Wren V5US speaker does it all wirelessly with Air-Play, Play-Fi, and aptX

If there is one thing to know about using projectors, is that the cool factor is inversely proportional with the size. Smaller projectors make the fun blast right through the roof!

Upgrading to the iPhone 6 or Galaxy S6? Turn old devices into home security

Sometimes the thrill of upgrading to a brand new mobile device can be tempered by that feeling of waste. It’s part of technology culture, where the latest features and powerful hardware come with the latest models. Given the marketing push behind new releases as well as discounts through mobile carriers, it’s hard not to want to trade in older devices for the new.

Love light? Then you’ll want the Philips Hue Go

By now, you’ve sure to have been exposed to all sorts of LED bulbs from a variety of brands. Both the standard and the wireless kind. So far, the wide majority of these offerings have been of the A19 type that goes into a traditional lamp socket.

This needs to happen now: Lyric IoT speaker

I’m a little bummed out that I missed my chance to see this Lyric speaker in action while at SXSW 2015. Ah, if only I had an additional half a day more. I’ll cross my fingers the company will showcase this product at next year’s CES 2016. Now I’ve seen and listened to my fair more »

KeyMe expands digital key kiosks, now available at Lowe’s

I’ve locked myself out of the house twice this past year. The first time was a complete ‘derp’ moment, when I left my keys sitting on the counter. The second time – lets blame it on entropy – my house key fell off my carabiner clip. Since I am that kind of person, it took more »
