From conception to completion everything under one roof makes your life easier.
A levitating Bluetooth speaker
ASWY’s product, simply called the Floating Bluetooth Speaker, has three watts of output, five hours of battery life and Bluetooth 4.0 support. You can also plug an audio source directly into the 3.5mm input, and, since there’s an integrated mic, you can use the device as a speakerphone as well. Like with OM Audio’s version, you’ll need to use a powered base to keep the speaker in the air, but it’ll operate untethered as well. The base also includes an integrated USB port, so you don’t need to use a secondary adapter to charge up the device (though you can if you like). ASWY reps expect distributors to sell the speaker for $149 beginning this November.
Samsung now sells a $430 curved PC monitor to match your curved TV
Samsung insists “the curve changes everything” about watching TV, but can it do the same for PC monitors? Today the company announced that it’s expanding its portfolio of curved screens to include desktop displays. The first such product, a 27-inch 1080p display, has been priced at $429.99 and will go on sale October 1st. Samsung says its engineers “conducted extensive research on the human eye to determine the optimal monitor curve radius.”
iPhone 6s are being bent in people’s pockets
You aren’t holding it wrong this time, but there’s a good chance your pocket might be doing terrible things to your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus. Owners of these new gadgets are reporting serious warping issues after the phones have done little more than sit inside a pair of pants.
Apple’s aluminum unibody design is easy to appreciate, and the iPhone 6 launch made it just as easy to fall in love all over again. The curved edges to this phone are comfortable, and phone is just about as thin and light as you can get today. Unfortunately, it looks like Apple has sacrificed durability in exchange for that thin profile and impossibly light experience. Users are starting to report warping in iPhone 6 Plus models, and the images that accompany these reports are cringeworthy to say the least.
