Here's a cool prospect: Imagine making a call while on-the-go, and rather than have the transmission go through a tower, it instead goes through someone else's phone. This idea isn't new, but Qualcomm has the capability to make it a standard, and with LTE Direct, it hopes to accomplish that. LTE Direct has the... Read more...
Intel-owned Basis has just unveiled a brand-new smartwatch, and while I'd understand it if you didn't get too excited based on that fact alone, this model does seem to have what it takes to stand out of the crowd.

Since the announcement of the Android Wear platform this past June, Google has said very little about what's in store for the future.

Razer certainly has its work cut out for the company this year.

Motorola might not be the dominant force it once was, but it sure does know how to get people talking. Its latest patent does more than enough to make that happen, because it's yet another one of those ideas that seems to be pulled straight out of a 1980's science fiction movie. The patent, titled "Coupling an... Read more...

In enterprise environments, it's long been accepted that keeping a particular machine "100%" safe requires little more than keeping it off of an external or internal network, making sure to disable its network devices - wired or otherwise - and of course, disabling its optical drives and USB ports.

Speaking of smartwatches, there are already plenty of them out there (albeit not necessarily Android-based devices that answer your phone calls), and Garmin has a couple of new ones for athletes. The Forerunner 620 offers a host of features, including those that offer granular data about your runs, pace, heart rate... Read more...
I think it's safe to say that a generally agreed-upon thing in tech is that cords suck. You might have way too many of them to deal with, or you might be tired of plugging one in the wrong way all the time (I'm looking at you, USB). It's for these reasons that wireless power is an interesting topic, and while there... Read more...
Intel's Wireless Display technology, also known as WiDi, hasn't exactly taken off the way Bluetooth has, but it's still a blossoming protocol that has the chance to eliminate wire usage in the display market.

Logitech is going for a certain look and feel with its Z600 Bluetooth stereo speakers, which is to say that it’s trying for a sleek, high-end-looking product that matches the luster of ultrabooks.

What Nest did for the thermostat, August will do for the conventional door lock. The door lock is one of those things that has largely gone untouched over the years.
