The smallest Bluetooth headset in the world is blowing up on Kickstarter

Motorola’s Moto Hint is definitely one of the most interesting Bluetooth headsets around, or at least that used to be the case until Dot arrived. The device is an even smaller headset compatible with the iPhone and Android handsets – Dot is dubbed the world’s smallest Bluetooth headset on Kickstarter, where it has almost reached $300,000 in pledges soon after launch.

The Retina MacBook finally gets the USB Type-C external battery it deserves

One of the main new features of the 12-inch Retina MacBook is its USB Type-C port that can both charge the battery and let you connect other devices at the same time, but only as long as you have an adapter. And now a new accessory from the makers of the Magnetic Organization System (MOS) is promising to be the USB Type-C-friendly external battery that your MacBook deserves.

2 wireless speakers that are unlike anything you’ve tried before

By on July 9, 2015 at 12:11 PM.

It has been more than five months since we last covered wireless speakers here on BGR, but with summer in full swing, it’s time to help ensure that Apple Music is keeping your pool parties on track with the best possible sound. We’ve recommended some real gems in the past — check out last year’s holiday buying guide and this post on the Bayan Audio Soundbook X3 for examples — but I’ve tested about a dozen more speakers since then, and there are two options among them that really shined.

Every Trekkie Will Want This Amazing Star Trek Communicator Smartphone Accessory

Star Trek has a lot of cool technology that we don’t have today, such as warp drives, tractor beams and teleportation. That said, its smartphones look really, really out of date — in fact, Star Trek’s famous communicator mobile phones look more like clunkier versions of old Motorola flip phones than they do modern smartphones. That said, diehard Trekkies will nonetheless love a brilliant new smartphone accessory unveiled this week that will give them the ability to look just like Captain Kirk while they’re talking to friends on the phone.

This Car Charger Will Charge Your Phone Up To 75% Faster, and It’s Only $11 on Amazon

People went crazy over the deal we found a while back for an Aukey Quick Charge 2.0 wall charger that was just $11 on Amazon with a coupon code. Some smartphones that include compatibility with Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 2.0 technology don’t actually ship with compatible chargers, so this was a great way to snag one without paying full price.

But what happens when you need to charge your phone in your car? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. More →

Apple Watch Luxury

Apple Watch isn’t About ‘Need’, it’s About ‘Want’

Apple Watch isn’t About ‘Need’, it’s About ‘Want’

The Apple Watch has been out in the wild for about two months now and, as with anything, time has seemingly softened the initial run of harsh critiques and over the top glowing reviews that accompanied its release. With the passage of time, we’ve thankfully started to see a greater number of more reasoned takes on Apple’s new wearable.

Suffice it to say, the Apple Watch isn’t as revolutionary as the iPhone, nor is it an utter disappointment a la the Newton. The truth, like most things, lies somewhere in the middle.

Apple Beats Headphones Knockoffs Differences

Reports Saying Beats Headphones Are Cheap May Have Been Grossly Exaggerated

Reports Saying Beats Headphones Are Cheap May Have Been Grossly Exaggerated

A prototype engineer made waves on Medium last week after dissecting a pair of Beats by Dre Solo headphones. He suggested that the luxury item is a lot cheaper than you’d expect because it packs superfluous metal parts with the sole function of adding weight to the product. He may have been absolutely correct when it comes to the pair of headphones he disassembled… but it turns out he may have ripped apart a knockoff. More →
