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.

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.”

This $11 quick charger from Amazon will charge your phone 75% faster (deal is back!)

Last week, we told you about a great deal happening on Amazon. For just $11, users were able to purchase a special charger that uses Quick Charge 2.0 technology to charge their compatible smartphones and tablets up to 75% faster than some stock wall chargers. This was apparently a pretty appealing prospect for BGR readers, because they flooded the site and the charger was sold out a short while later.

Well if you missed out on that deal, don’t despair: The $11 quick charger deal is back on at Amazon — at least, while supplies last. More →
