  • Get ready for new Beats (wireless?) headphones at the iPhone event

    Get ready for new Beats (wireless?) headphones at the iPhone event

    That’s what we call a teeny tiny fuckup. Beats sent a press release to iGen.fr and other French media outlets saying that they should expect new Beats products on September 7 during Apple’s press conference. There was also a screenshot of the official Apple media invite so that it was 100% clear for everyone that Beats was talking about Apple’s event. But this leak is… Read More

    The Apple Watch 2 could have a bigger battery for a GPS chip

    Rumor has it that Apple is about to introduce an Apple Watch 2 on September 7, alongside a new iPhone. While many leaks indicate that the Apple Watch will have more or less a similar design as the original watch, a new leak from Byte shows that the Apple Watch 2 could have a bigger battery and a thinner display. The reasoning is quite simple. Based on previous rumors, the Apple Watch 2 will have… Read More

    Montblanc enters the 21st century with a fancy digital pen

    Fancy pens are fancy. They’re nice to own, really great to write with, and awful pretty. But what happens when you mash up fancy pen manufacturer Montblanc with some digital paper? Baby, you got a 21st century stew goin’. Montblanc calls it Montblanc Augmented Paper and it’s basically specially coded (and coated) paper that lets the pen and notebook sense their position. The… Read More

    3Doodler targets architects and designers with a new professional 3D printing pen

    Desktop 3D printers have long had a tough road to legitimacy. For as long as the space has existed, critics have questioned their purpose beyond the creation of simple, plastic ephemera. It’s been a tough charge to escape, particularly for those running in the thousands of dollars; as such, it’s probably no surprise that the market has seen, to put it mildly, a cooling… Read More

    Withings adds heart-rate monitoring to its analog fitness watch

    There’s really only so much you can do with your analog fitness watch before it turns into something else. Withings already has one of the nicer offerings in the space in the form of the Steel — a solid time-keeping device with step and sleep tracking baked in. As the name implies, the Steel HR brings heart-rate (not human resources) monitoring to the equation. It accomplishes… Read More

As the name suggest, these devices replace the existing valves on your radiator. Netatmo has already released a smart… Read More

  • BMW first to sell CarPlay as standalone service

    BMW first to sell CarPlay as standalone service

    BMW buyers will now have the option to get CarPlay installed in their new rides. But for a cost. BMW is charging $300 to add the service to new vehicles making the German auto maker the first to charge buyers for access to CarPlay.

    Move over Cortana – another voice-powered smart assistant might be on its way to Windows PCs. That’s according to a new report from CNET, which cites confirmation of talks between Amazon and Lenovo by an unnamed Lenovo executive as the source of the info.

    Neato debuts a pair of connected robotic vacuums starting at $399

    Neato, the other company that produces robot vacuums (no, the other, other company), is back with two new entries in its floor cleaning robo-servant line. The latest additions, debuting at IFA this week, continue the company’s (relatively) low-entry point and a focus on connectivity, which – in that respect, at least – leapfrogged iRobot a while back. The base-level D3 runs… Read More

    DJI wants to end shaky smartphone videos

    DJI hopes you’re tired of shaky and embarrassing smartphone videos. The Osmo Mobile is a handheld 3-axis stabilizer gimbal for smartphones. Just strap a phone to the top and a similar gimbal used in the company’s drones will keep the video silky smooth. The kit works similarly to the DJI Osmo except this new version lacks a built-in camera. It uses the capable camera in a… Read More
