Divoom Timebox Mini review: Fun, but ultimately underwhelming

Tuesday, September 19th, 2017

I've grown jaded to the Bluetooth speaker market lately, but I always hop on the chance to review a new one in the admittedly futile hope that it will exceed my general expectations of the product segment. I get really excited when I'm pitched something that has a truly unique aspect to it — and no, I don't consider durability or weatherproof-ness to be unique anymore. But do you know what I really dislike?

Jaybird announces the Freedom 2 earbuds and Jaybird Run completely wireless earbuds

Thursday, September 14th, 2017

Jaybird has made plenty of Bluetooth earbuds over the years, including the excellent Jaybird X3 earbuds from last year. Today, the company has announced a pair of new products. It's updating the Jaybird Freedom (which I wasn't as keen on) with the Freedom 2. It's also getting into this completely wireless earbud game with the Jaybird Run.

The Freedom 2 attempts to address issues I pointed out in our review—specifically, the fit wasn't great because of the battery hanging off the right side, and cable management didn't help.

Wednesday, September 13th, 2017

Google is still working on getting the September security patches out the door, but it has posted a security bulletin detailing the changes. Several of the flaws noted in the bulletin are part of an enormous Bluetooth vulnerability discovered by Armis Labs, which bills itself as an IoT security firm. The "BlueBorne" attack exposes billions of Android devices to complete takeover by hackers, but it's not only Android.

If Google Play Protect is breaking bluetooth on your Moto G4 Plus, don’t worry because there’s a fix

Monday, September 11th, 2017

We received a tip today about a strange problem affecting bluetooth on the Moto G4 Play, and it has something to do with Google Play Protect. It seems as though the issue is fairly widespread, too, as there are a number of reports on the Lenovo forums from disgruntled users. If you're also experiencing the problem, well fear not as there is a way to fix it.

What appears to be happening is that Google Play Protect on the Moto G4 Plus (running Nougat 7.0) is mistaking a system app called Bluetooth Share 7.0 for something unsafe.

Google app v7.11 beta suggests the next Android version is 8.1, adds battery levels for Bisto headphones, prepares to tweak user-defined actions, and more [APK Teardown]

Wednesday, September 6th, 2017

The latest update to the Google app is rolling out to beta channel members right now. There aren't any immediately obvious changes on the surface, but as the tradition often goes, there are some things under the hood worthy of discussion in a teardown. This version brings a pretty good indicator that 8.1 will be the next version of Android. There are also signs that user-defined actions are going to get some changes in the future.

Optoma NuForce BE2 review: The best Bluetooth earphones in this price range

Monday, September 4th, 2017

I am very cynical about Bluetooth audio these days. Even if the sound is good, the battery life sucks, the buds themselves aren't comfortable, and so on. However, I think I finally found a product that actually meets a lot of the criteria that make a good pair of Bluetooth earphones. Optoma's NuForce BE2 is made for athletes; it packs an IPX5 rating, decent sound, and a nice 10-hour battery life span all for $50.

Sony announces two more Bluetooth headphones and a pair of earbuds, all with terrible names

Saturday, September 2nd, 2017

There have been plenty of audio product announcements at IFA, like Google Assistant speakers from JBL and noice-cancelling headphones from Sony. Now, Sony has announced a few more products at the event - Bluetooth headphones and earbuds.

Sony h.ear on Wireless NC

First, we have the Sony h.ear on Wireless NC. Thankfully, the product itself is much better than the name. Sony claims it has 28 hours of battery life, and you can slide/tap your finger on the right side to control media playback.

Sony announces three new models in the 1000X family of wireless noise canceling headphones

Thursday, August 31st, 2017

We've seen more and more Bluetooth headphones as OEMs continue to drop headphone jacks, and today Sony has added three more to its lineup. The WF-1000X, WI-1000X, and WH-1000XM2 don't have especially distinct or poignant names, but together they represent a broad selection. Whatever one's needs are in a pair of noise canceling headphones, at least one of these should meet them. 

I have yet to make the jump to Bluetooth headphones, myself.

Fitbit announces its first smartwatch, the Ionic, along with new wireless earbuds and a smart scale

Monday, August 28th, 2017

Back in December of last year, Fitbit paid $40 million for Pebble. Considering Pebble's entire future product lineup was cancelled as a result of the buyout, many hoped that Fitbit would at least offer a similar product in the future. The company's new smartwatch is finally here - the Ionic - as well as two other new fitness products.

Fitbit Ionic

Let's start with the Ionic. It has a color LCD touchscreen, but can supposedly still last around four days on a single charge (when you're not using GPS).
