We’ve seen smartwatches and even smaller mobile companion accessories launching in the market. But the MOTA SmartRing takes the cake for being the smallest of them all as it fits right into your finger. The idea is to provide notifications to the users right at their fingertips (quite literally) and offer the liberty to view or dismiss them at their convenience. As you can see from the image above, the SmartRing doesn’t have a large screen real estate, which is understandable as it is meant to slot into your finger. But...

Things just got real. The start of the new school year is less than a week away, so it’s high time you stopped daydreaming about the good old early days of summer. But September 4 doesn’t have to be a time of grief and sorrow. Not entirely. You might as well embrace the beginning of the rest of your life, and make the most of it. And what better way than loading up on sizzling hot Android gear to ensure you’ll stand out from the crowd once that first bell rings? Already stacked on tablets, convertibles, laptops and/or multi-purpose...

The Castle of Illusion game from Disney is now selling for just $0.99 on the Google Play Store. This is a 90% off on the regular asking price of $9.99, so it’s quite a big discount coming from a developer such as Disney. Unfortunately, the deal only seems to be available in the U.S. and Canada as of now, so you’re not in luck if you don’t belong to these regions. Castle of Illusion was originally launched on the Sega Genesis console back in the 90s which has since been remade in 1080p resolution for consoles as well...

Samsung has been quite busy today with the announcement of the Gear S smartwatch earlier and now the Gear Circle bluetooth headphones. These headphones aren’t your standard run of the mill earbuds though, as they come with a unique vibrate feature which notifies users when there’s a text message or an incoming call alert. For those unaware, the same set of functionality is also available on the Sony SBH80 bluetooth earphones, so Samsung clearly isn’t the first to launch something like this. The Gear Circle is also capable...

Mophie is a well known brand popular for its external batteries and cases. The manufacturer has now announced that it will be launching its popular juice packs meant specifically for the Samsung Galaxy S5. The unit will be available in both white and black colors with a price tag of $99.95. Customers will have to wait until the 8th of September to get their hands on this case though, so it’s only available on pre-order now. This juice pack for the Galaxy S5 has a capacity of 3,000 mAh, which is slightly more than the actual capacity...

External battery packs have become a necessity of late given the tedious hours of usage our devices go through. Although modern smartphones come with enormous batteries, it’s never enough. And carrying an external battery is not always convenient given the size and the space it takes in our pockets or purses. However, a new product called QBracelet looks to curb that particular consumer pain point. This device wraps around the user’s wrist as you can see above, with a microUSB (or Apple Lightning) plug on one end slotting...

The timing may seem a bit off (actually, way off), with all the Moto 360s, second-gen LG G Watches, third-gen Sony SmartWatches and rookie Asus Android Wear efforts around the corner. But you know how things go in the tech world, and particularly in a niche as hot as the wearable sector. There’s always something better, cooler, stronger on the horizon, and if you keep holding off for “the next big thing”, you’ll end up constantly on the lookout and never satisfied. Besides, in a way, the timing is ideal to round up the best existing...

They said Android is limited. Impractical to use on a larger than 10-inch screen. Worthless with physical keyboards, and utterly inoperable on “full-on” computing machines. They scoffed at the idea of mainstream Android laptops, which was filed under megalomaniac fantasies from overly imaginative, reality-disconnected nerds. Well, we showed them. And by we, I mean a handful of visionaries that left no obstacle get in the way of unlocking Android’s true potential. Sure, Google’s “mobile” OS is still light-years away from becoming...
