    GoPro Sued Over Hero4 Session Design

    The GoPro Hero4 Session looks like the Polaroid Cube. It’s hard to deny otherwise.

  • Blue Releases A New Set Of Headphones

    Blue Releases A New Set Of Headphones

    I’m a big fan of the Blue Mo-Fi headphones. They sounds great and I can wear them all day. But they’re too large to travel and have a built-in preamp, which requires recharging. Enter the Lola.
