I have a confession to make: I'm obsessed with wireless portable audio gear. Bluetooth earbuds, headphones, and portable speakers excite me more than they probably should. And I'm OK with that. My wife, however, gives me "the look" every time a new gadget arrives, rolling her eyes so far up her skull she could have easily become a soap opera star or an extra on The Walking Dead. She doesn't get it - she's not a geek who loves to get to the bottom of every feature, spot every miniscule detail, and figure out if we have something special on our hands.

Now that Samsung officially announced the Galaxy S4, you may be feeling a bit overwhelmed by all the new features and software improvements. I know I am still trying to wrap my head around various S Things while pondering whether we have an S Hit on our hands on or not.
To aid with the process and showcase every square inch of the Galaxy
S3S S4, the company uploaded this official 4m24s Galaxy S4 intro video, complete with elevator music and lots of subtitles.
Update: It's official. Samsung Just Officially Unveiled 'The Next Big Thing' – Come Meet The Galaxy S4!
The next Galaxy's unveiling is finally upon us at 7PM Eastern/4PM Pacific tonight, March 14th. Come back to this page a few minutes early to watch the event stream live as well as follow our live blog. Don't forget to bring a snack - it'll likely go for well over an hour.
We may have already discovered some of the features and a possible look of the S IV, but there's always a chance that the leaks we've been seeing, which all came from the same dual-SIM device in China, aren't actually representative of the final hardware.
You don't really need my commentary for this one. Just kick back for 2 minutes, watch, and see if this humorous take on Google Glass by stuntbear cracks a smile on your face. These will never get old.
Warning: As you've already probably guessed, some interesting language some might call French indeed found its way into the video. Consider using your headphones if watching at work.
The Galaxy S IV should be unveiled in roughly 2.5 days, and, as we expected, the leaks just keep on coming. Of course, the problem with Samsung's flagship Galaxy device launches is it's pretty much impossible to figure out whether what we're seeing is the real design or not due to multiple prototypes and a veil of secrecy that I daresay tops even Apple's.
Today, we have a video of the very same alleged Chinese dual-SIM variant of the SGS IV GT-i9502 that we saw yesterday when it posed for a surprisingly high-quality photoshoot (I guess the blurrycam was broken).
A few days ago, a pair of apps called RemotePlay and RemotePlayM by new Android developer Piddas21, a subsidiary of Taiwanese Quanta Computer, hit the Play Store ahead of SXSW. The idea is great - media and document sharing in real-time, across multiple platforms, such as Android, iOS, and Windows 8. Want to easily stream a video from your Nexus 4 to your iPad? No problem - it should be as simple as dragging it to a bucket with your iPad's name on it, and voila - you're watching a video on the big screen.
Thanks to some quick thinking of an enterprising xda-developers forum member loan92, who used his charm and boyish good looks to distract HTC employees from his sneaky actions at an event in Italy, we have eighteen beautiful wallpapers the company bundled with the upcoming One flagship.
For your convenience, I've mirrored them to an imgur gallery where they can be viewed using the widget below.
As an addendum to the announcement of Google completing AOSP rollout for Android 4.2.2, I wanted to highlight a big milestone for the Nexus program - something that has never been the case before today.
After asking JBQ (not to be confused with JDQ39) a follow-up question, I was able to get some clarity on his earlier post and confirm that as of today, with the release of Android 4.2.2 binaries, we have for the first time ever Nexus devices that have 100% of proprietary binaries available.
