It seems the relationship between the two companies has fallen apart as it didn’t quite work out as well as they had hoped. Now it looks like they will be seeing different people as they go their separate ways. This was all of course triggered by the negotiation over who would have what (and how much) control over the newly combined wireless company. It would have quickly boosted the companies to a competitive subscriber number (more than 130 million subscribers) against AT&T and Verizon, allowing them to thrive with these new numbers and combine technologies for a stronger network. Of course…

Here comes another interesting idea by a company hoping to get their product onto the market next year. What if you didn’t have to iron your clothes manually, while also not having to bring your clothing to the cleaners to accomplish the task? What if you had your own personal machine to do it all for you? Rohan and Trevor are two individuals who are working hard to accomplish just this. The solution is called “effie”, a machine that can dry and iron your clothes for you in as little as three to six minutes per garment (six if it needs…

Those little roaming vacuum cleaners just got a whole lot better with the announcement of Samsung’s Star Wars Limited Edition POWERbot cleaner. There’s already a number of cleaners available on the market, including the popular Roombas that most are familiar with. However, none of them are as cool as a Star Wars themed cleaner that rolls around your house. The new POWERbots will be dressed to either look like a Stormtrooper or Darth Vader himself, and feature a number of sound effects and quotes inspired by the Star Wars films. Perfect for dedicates Star Wars fans around the world. http://brightcove05.brightcove.com/o1/923227797001/923227797001_5604207630001_5604201058001.mp4 Samsung promises…

The Kinect sensor built up a lot of anticipation when it was first announced in 2009 during the Xbox 360’s life cycle, with announcements and conceptual videos to show where the future will take us with such technology and what they planned to deliver using it. From the ability to control your console using your voice to being able to scan physical objects into the game you’re playing to create custom personal skins (their example was a skateboard). You could stand in front of the Kinect and virtually see what a piece of clothing would look like on your body…

We have found another great set-top smart box solution running Android that helps deliver your favorite apps and features to even the dumbest HDTVs on the market (assuming they have an HDMI connection at least). This round we have the G-Box Q3 Android Box by Matricom, a good solution for those looking to keep costs down while getting all of the bells and whistles crammed into a tiny little box that sits nearly by your TV. It features Android Nougat (7.1) inside and a quite user-friendly interface where they organize everything into your typical categories, including Videos, Music, Apps, Games…

In the continuous race to see who can release the best digital assistant, A.I. equipped speakers are launching left and right into the market. Amazon has their new Echo speaker (Alexa) they recently announced; Samsung has announced they are moving into the same market with Bixby (2.0); Google has their new Home Mini speaker; and now Microsoft will have their own as well thanks to Harman Kardon with the new Invoke Speaker. We have spoken about it in the past as they took their time making their way in, making sure it wasn’t a rushed product (Harman Kardon does have known…

We seem to run across dozens of headphones every quarter, covering everything from buds to cans. Despite such traffic, one thing that never changes, is the fact that it never gets old. Mostly because most of us here are audio heads, so breaking open a new pair of headphones or a fancy new speaker is like Christmas every day. The magic of it all is always understanding the various levels of consumers who are looking for these solutions and what their needs and interests lead toward when it comes to expectation and function, vs turning into an audio snob and…

Samsung’s Bixby hasn’t exactly had a smooth experience as it began its path into the world of digital assistants. Competing against the likes of Google, Amazon, Microsoft and Apple, it had large shoes to fill if it wanted to make an impression on anyone. Especially since all of the phones that supported Bixby already had a personal assistant available at launch (ie, OK Google). One of the most common issues was Samsung’s idea of forcing Bixby on everyone with a hard-button built right into their Galaxy S8/S8+ phones that was so easy to accidently press when reaching for the phone…

It’s too hot; it’s too cold; my feet are freezing; I don’t like the temperature you set. So many complaints can come from laying under the sheets (when trying to sleep), and most of them generally narrow down to just a few simple variables–and one of these is temperature. Each person has their own sleeping preferences and sometimes balancing layers with your house’s climate control doesn’t solve any of them. A person in one room may like it to be average while the other might prefer a much colder setting. Setting the thermostat in your house either way will only…

Over the next few days, Plex will be rolling out a new feature to their mobile app on Android. They are now adding support for Android Auto, which is a popular app among Android users that allow their phone to interact with certain vehicles that support the feature, to easily access and control all of the music on their device as well as a handful of apps like Pandora and iHeart Radio. All of this is accomplished by displaying the information and allowing it all to be controlled from the vehicle’s display/screen. If the vehicle doesn’t support this feature, you…
