Bloomberg: Apple’s Amazon Echo-like smart home device now in testing phase

Rumors of a Siri-powered smart home device to compete with Amazon’s Echo and Google’s Home have been circulating since May of this year, but we haven’t heard much concrete information about the project since then.

On Friday, we got our first update on the device in months when Bloomberg published a report claiming that the product has now moved out of the research and development lab and into prototype testing.

iPhone Macro Lens

You never thought your iPhone could capture photos like this

You never thought your iPhone could capture photos like this

Smartphone cameras like the one on Apple’s latest iPhones have become incredibly capable over the past few years. In good lighting, it can be impossible to tell whether a photo was snapped by a smartphone or a dedicated point and shoot camera. That said, there are certain limitations a smartphone camera might never be able to overcome on its own, and high-quality macro shots are a perfect example. You simply can’t fit enough glass in a tiny little smartphone to create high-quality close ups.

That’s where the AUKEY Ora iPhone Lens comes into play, and it’s on sale right now on Amazon for just $25. More →

Apple iPhone 7 users report EarPods glitch

Apple iPhone 7 users report EarPods glitch

A quirky problem is reportedly affecting some people who are using Apple’s new Lightning-connected EarPods: the controls on the EarPods themselves stop working after a brief amount of time.

With the iPhone 7, Apple famously removed the traditional audio jack. Instead, the new device comes with EarPods that plug into the Lightning port— the same port used to charge the device. It also includes an adapter that connects older headphones with the 3.5mm jack to the more modern digital connection system.

Android Flash Drive

$12 USB flash drive works with your PC and any Android phone

$12 USB flash drive works with your PC and any Android phone

Why should moving files on and off your Android phone be any more complicated than it is with your Windows or Mac PC? It shouldn’t be, and now it doesn’t have to be. Cloud storage systems are great, but they use precious cellular data if you’re not connected to Wi-Fi and they can also be painfully slow. Instead of relying on the cloud, snag one of the two PNY DUO-LINK flash drives Amazon has on sale right now. You’ll find a 32GB option and a 64GB option, and both versions include a standard USB 3.0 plug as well as a microUSB plug for your Android smartphone or tablet. Do you have a newer Android model with a USB-C port? No worries — any simple adapter will do the trick. More →

How to keep your Wi-Fi connected when the power goes out

How to keep your Wi-Fi connected when the power goes out

A lot of people think that when you lose power at your house, your TV and home internet services go out too. Sometimes that’s the case but believe it or not, your TV and internet service are typically fine — you just can’t use them because your home router, cable modem and TV can’t be powered on. It’s fine to do without TV for a short time until the power comes back on, but losing your home internet service means you can’t work or do anything else without eating into your cellular data plan.

Check out the CyberPower CP1500AVRLCD Intelligent UPS, a 900W battery backup. Just plug in your cable modem and router, and you’ll be back to work — or back to streaming Netflix — in no time. More →

Best iPhone 7 Clear Case

Peel is the super thin, practically invisible case your iPhone 7 deserves

Peel is the super thin, practically invisible case your iPhone 7 deserves

By on September 20, 2016 at 11:38 AM.

Apple’s brand new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are finally here and they’re anything but boring. In fact, while they look very much like last year’s iPhones from afar, one look up close and you realize just how gorgeous these hot new smartphones are. The design is refined in every way and it’s easily the sleekest and most sophisticated smartphone design in the world — especially the sexy new Jet Black color. But Apple’s iPhones are still incredibly slippery, and that new Jet Black color scratches very easily.

If you bought an iPhone 7 or an iPhone 7 Plus, you definitely need to slap a case on it. The last thing you want to do is ruin the look of the phone though, and that’s where Peel’s Super Thin iPhone 7/7 Plus Case comes in. More →
