Everything you can do with a USB OTG cable on your Oculus Go

January 18th, 2019

Best answer: The USB port on the Oculus Go can be used for a number of things, including connecting to gamepads, arcade sticks, and your phone, but you need a USB OTG cable to take full use of it.

Amazon: Oculus Go ($250)
Amazon: Cable Matters 2-Pack Micro USB OTG Adapter ($7)
Amazon: CableCreation Micro USB to Micro USB Cable ($7)
Gamestop: Wired Licensed Xbox 360 Controller ($20)
Amazon: 8Bitdo N30 Arcade Stick ($60)
What is OTG?

OTG stands for on-the-go. Devices that have OTG support can do more through USB ports than power the device. It’s relatively common on smartphones and allows for device access and in some devices allows for more convenient file storage and management.

The Oculus Go has OTG support, though it notably does not work with USB storage devices. That exception aside, the Oculus Go can become much more versatile by connecting accessories and other devices.

To use OTG on your Oculus Go, you’ll need a cable that supports it. In addition to the cables listed abo…

The $50 Wemo Dimmer Light Switch is back down to one of its best prices yet

January 18th, 2019

Never get out of bed to turn off the lights again.

The Wemo Dimmer Switch is currently on sale for $49.99 at Amazon. Though it sells for $80 regularly, it’s more common to find it priced around $67 on average there. We saw this same last week price-matching a one-day sale at Best Buy. the price jumped back up at the end of the day, so it’s very likely this price won’t last for much longer than that today either.

You can control this switch from the wall, the Wemo app, and your Alexa or Google Assistant device. You don’t need anything special other than Wi-Fi. With this dimmer, you can schedule your lights to do what you want. Adjust them with the sunset or sunrise. Turn off your lights with your phone when you’re at work and realize you forgot to — or from bed when you’re like me and being extra lazy. Set your lights to turn on slowly and help you wake up. These things are awesome, and once you get one you’ll wish you’d had it sooner.

This switch will calibrate to your curre…

Ace Combat 7 review: As real as you want it to be

January 18th, 2019

A great aerial combat game with very few bells and whistles.

As satisfying as it is to hear “Mission Accomplished. Bring it home, Trigger.” over the comm, I can’t afford to lose focus. Landing this F-14D isn’t as challenging as some of the other jets I’ve been in, but it’s far from easy after an extended dogfight. My hands ache from gripping the throttle and stick through the last couple of runs, and if I don’t keep my nose straight this landing isn’t going to go smoothly. I hear the control tower guidance to watch my speed, and slowly pull back to comply. Even with that decrease, it feels like the ground is coming up pretty fast. I take a deep breath, the wheels touch down, and this war machine I’m piloting eases to a stop.

I take my hands off the controls and exhale. NOW the mission has really been accomplished, but the war is far from over. And being on the ground mostly means I’m closer to people who don’t really like me all that much. Oh well, it’s time to go learn where I’m g…
