4 killer Amazon deals every iPhone and Android phone user needs to check out

Call it part of the burden of smartphone ownership: you simply can’t do without certain accessories. Paying $400, $500 or even $600+ for a smartphone is only the beginning — if you want to get the most out of your iPhone or Android phone purchase and make life as easy as possible, you’ll also need to buy several accessories.

Additional chargers are a must, of course, but buying OEM isn’t always the best way to go. And of course, there aren’t always any OEM options when it comes to portable power packs, so you’ll need to look elsewhere.

Today, we’ve got four limited-time Amazon deals to tell you about, and you won’t want to miss them. More →

That same feature might not necessarily be needed on a smartphone such as the iPhone 6, but one company came up with a compelling reason for anyone to want a smartphone magnetic charger. More →

Video: Gun-firing drones show humanity is hellbent on killing itself

Putting guns on drones isn’t such a crazy idea if you ask the military. You can mount destructive missiles on unmanned vehicles and send them to do the dirty work – it’s not necessarily moral or right, but that’s beside the point right now, because now we’re seeing regular citizens create gun-toting drones of their own that they can control just through their iPhones.

New teardown reveals the truth about Beats headphones

The relatively successful launch of the Beats 1 radio station isn’t the only reason Dr. Dre’s brand has been in the headlines recently. Nearly a month ago, Bolt prototype engineer Avery Louie popped open a pair of Beats headphones only to discover that the so-called luxury equipment was no more technologically advanced than headphones listed for half the price.

The article reached every corner of the Internet within days, but once the story began to receive some scrutiny, it became clear that the pair of headphones Louie examined was in fact a counterfeit product. But that doesn’t mean Beats is in the clear. More →
