Hands On: an Apple Watch Edition

04/28, 7:11am

Bling Bling

Yesterday, we took a trip up to Dallas to try on the Apple Watch Edition. Yes, that's the really expensive gold one. Sadly, there were no flights of champagne, or tastefully-appointed back rooms. What we did get, instead was a friendly and enthusiastic Apple Store employee, and the heft of four to six ounces of 18-karat gold on our wrist. Keep this in mind: aside from the two sizes of screen to choose from, the price differences between the different models has everything to do with aesthetics and what the casing or band materials are made of, particularly with the Edition.

Living With: a (non-Apple) smartwatch

04/26, 7:30pm

Beyond the cool-gadget factor, can they really improve on the smartphone?

Anyone who's been listening to The MacNN Podcast knows there's been some discussion among the staff about wearing smartwatches, and if they think it would be beneficial to do so. Some of us are dubious it would be a useful addition to our workflow, some are skeptical but hopeful an application of value will arise, and some have already ordered theirs and are waiting patiently. Recently, a friend of ours scored several refurbished MetaWatch Frames from Meh.com for what we're going to call "a really good price." So we bought one, in an effort to see if there was any point to wearing a smartwatch.

Review: Bracketron PowerFlex external battery

04/26, 7:00pm

A tablet stand that can charge two devices at once

When we're traveling or just generally out and about, we've taken to bringing a tablet and Bluetooth keyboard with us, rather than a laptop or netbook. Power for both our tablet, phone, and any other chargeable devices is always an issue. Our personal motto is "ABC," or "Always Be Charging." When we're not in our car or near an outlet, if we're lower than 75 percent on something we plug it into an external battery. Really all anyone needs is power to nourish these digital brains, but extra features are generally useful. The Bracketron Power Flex Stand is a 10,400mAh battery with a built-in tablet stand and flashlight. It will not only support one's tablet or smartphone at a pleasant viewing angle, but will also charge two devices at the same time with dual USB ports. Is it a must-have? Check out our review to find out.

Apple unveils three new TV ads for Apple Watch

04/24, 4:00pm

Campaign focuses on real-world usage and impact rather than features

Celebrating the launch of the Apple Watch, the company has posted three new ads showcasing its newest device -- complete with Apple's signature style of illustrating everyday use of the Watch ahead of explaining features or giving the product a false image equating it with power, sex, or glamor. The three ads -- "Us," "Up," and "Rise" -- offer dramatized but realistic normal uses for the Apple Watch, with differing emphasis.

The boutiques are said to be receiving pre-alloted shipments of the Sport and Watch models, but the gold Edition version continues to be unavailable anywhere at retail.

Review: Rapoo A300 Mini NFC Speaker with Bluetooth 4.0

04/22, 10:45am

A lot of thump in a little box

The Rapoo Bluetooth Mini NFC Speaker is a little metallic box about the size of a baseball. In spite of its small size, we were very pleased with the volume and quality of the sound it produced. The documentation made some claims of fancy features we weren't able to substantiate, but the overall performance of the speaker, compared to other portable Bluetooth speakers, was pretty swell in our opinion. Check out our review!

Review: Neurio Intelligent Home Monitor

04/20, 3:03pm

Keeping track of what's on, and what it's costing

Neurio Home Intelligence is a piece of hardware that, when integrated into a home's breaker box, monitors electricity usage and allows the homeowner to see at a glance if they left the oven on, and what their electric bill might be. While the installation seems simple enough, we recommend having a qualified, professional electrician install it; using it after that is as easy as pie. While the performance of the Neurio Home Intelligence wasn't as magical as some of the documentation made it out to be, we really like this thing, and found it very useful -- check our review to see why we liked it so much.
