This tiny $2.50 device extends your disposable batteries’ lives by up to 800%

While lithium-ion batteries are all the rage these days, we still do use alkaline batteries for a lot of our important household gadgets. However, these batteries are often woefully inefficient and use up only 20% of their stored energy before they become effectively useless. However, a new device called Batteriser promises to fix this problem by boosting your disposable batteries’ lives by up to 800%. More →

BlackBerry scores a knockout punch against archenemy Ryan Seacrest

Score a win for BlackBerry. Per The Wall Street Journal, BlackBerry has reached a settlement with Ryan Seacrest’s company Typo in which Typo has agreed to stop selling its smartphone keyboard attachments for any devices whose screens measure in at less than 7.9 inches. Since Typo primarily made keyboard attachments for iPhones, this effectively means it’s game over for Seacrest’s knockoff keyboard. More →

Meet Voltus, the only Retina MacBook accessory you need to fix that USB-C port

The Retina MacBook’s single USB-C port is troubling some potential buyers who are worried about not being able to plug all the accessories they want into the laptop. Not to mention that, without an adapter, the USB-C port isn’t even compatible with most peripherals you’d want to hook to the Mac today. However, there’s a new Kickstarter project ready to solve that problem: Meet Voltus. More →

Best Cheap iPhone 6 Cases

Killer deal: Sleek iPhone 6 and 6 Plus cases starting at $5 from Amazon

Killer deal: Sleek iPhone 6 and 6 Plus cases starting at $5 from Amazon

We spend a great deal of time here at BGR digging through the web in search of the best available protective cases for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Why only those smartphone models, for the most part? Beautiful though they may be, Apple’s aluminum housings are insanely slippery and if you don’t use a case that offers some grip, you will drop your phone.

I’ve shown you my personal favorite iPhone 6 case, though I’ve also really been enjoying Vaja’s leather back lately, which isn’t really a case at all but provides much-needed grip. We also have plenty of great case suggestions that are more traditional and still sleek.

But what if you just want a good old-fashioned phone case that protects your handset for a few bucks at most? We’ve got some deals for you today that you won’t want to pass up.

This clever iPhone accessory is essential for anyone switching from Android

One of the biggest transitions you have to make when switching from Android to iOS is the fact that iOS devices lack a dedicated back button like the ones that come with all Android devices. However, a new Kickstarter campaign recently went live for a product called Halo Back, which is essentially a smart screen protector that adds a dedicated back button to either the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus.

Meet MuteMagic, a little $40 box that automatically mutes TV commercials

While there is absolutely no question that the MuteMagic is a couple decades too late to find real success, there is also no question that people who do decide to buy it will wonder how they ever lived without it — presuming it works as advertised. The website is a throwback to the dawn of the Internet and the device itself looks like something slapped together using parts from RadioShack, but MuteMagic’s promise is nothing short of a game-changer: For just $40, this little gadget will automatically mute commercials while you watch TV.

Google Creepy Robot Teddy Bear

Revealed: The creepiest Google product ever

Anyone who’s inclined to think of Google as a bunch of creepy privacy invaders will likely have their suspicions confirmed by a newly revealed patent that shows the creepiest Google product ever created. Per Engadget, Google’s X Labs team has been working on a “smart” teddy bear that can watch your children and respond to things that they say. As an example for how this would work, the patent describes how “the anthropomorphic device may aim its gaze at the source” whenever a child moves and from there it could “express curiosity, may tilt its head, furrow its brow, and/or scratch its head with an arm.”
