We've reviewed many Bluetooth speakers here at AP (I myself have penned many of them), but I'm not sure we've ever taken on anything like the Sound Rise from Soundfreaq. It's an inherently different sort of speaker, as it's really more than just a Bluetooth speaker – it's a Bluetooth alarm clock.

I'd like to think there are two kinds of people in this world: those who use their phone as an alarm clock, and those who have a more traditional buzz buzz buzz alarm clock.

Google Keep recently got a pretty big update that includes searchable images, list settings, and lengthened storage time of deleted notes (also, more yellow). Those were essentially the advertised features that came in this update, but one redditor found another cool feature: conflicting edits.

Basically, if you are editing a note on two devices at the same time (or happen to leave it open on one), and save them at different times, Keep will now alert that there's a conflict.

Amazon is no stranger to offering solid deals on brand-spankin-new handsets (and with Wirefly out of the way, it essentially has little-to-no competition these days), and it's now offering a great deal for potential Sprint customers who are considering the HTC One M8.

For the time being, Sprintsters can grab the handset for $150 on-contract – a good price in itself – but those who open a new line of service will also get a $50 Amazon gift card.

It's hard to believe that it's been a decade since Google first introduced Gmail beta to the world – a task that, at the time, the team behind the product had no clue would fundamentally change how we use email. According to an excellent piece on Time, however, Gmail is really a product that almost wasn't. There were times when the company questioned whether or not to release the product to consumers at all.

While many budget smartphones have come a long way in proving that "affordable" no longer necessarily means "bad" over the past few years (Moto G, anyone?), the budget tablet is still oftentimes a gamble. On one hand, devices like the Nexus 7 provide a fantastic user experience for not a lot of moneydollars; on the other, there are devices like the Snakebyte Vyper that basically verify the saying "you get what you pay for." Of course, some manufacturers – like ASUS, for example – seem to have a better handle on the art of building usable, affordable tablets.

On a scale of one to ten, how much do you like movies and TV shows? I'd like to think that most people thoroughly enjoy a good flick, and basically everyone probably has at least one series they follow, as well. Of course we all love Netflix and Hulu+ (well, maybe we don't love the latter), but you know what else is good? Free. Free movies and TV, to be exact.

Philips has been slowly adding various bulbs to its Hue lineup over the last several months, bringing even more smartphone-controlled lighting scenarios to users. The entire concept of Hue is freakin' awesome as it is – lights that can change to any color or, um, hue on the fly – so any addition to the family is really just the icing on the cake.

Today, the company is announcing three new products to its hue line: 3D-printed luminaries, lux, and tap.

Almost a year ago, Microsoft released Office Mobile for Android phones to the Play Store. The caveat, of course, was that it required an Office 365 subscription in order to use the application, which was kind of a bummer.

Fast-forward to today, and you may have heard that Office is finally available for the iPad – a rumor that we've seen come and go several times over the last couple of years.

In October of last year 2K Games released NBA 2K14 as an exclusive download for the Kindle Fire. Now here we are, some five months later, and the company has decided the time has finally come to drop the year's biggest NBA game into the Play Store. That's one hell of an exclusivity period.

Like its Amazon counterpart, the Play version of the game is going for $7.99, but the download seems to be significantly larger on Play.

Update 3/27/14: The guys at B & A Studio found a much more affordable way to manufacture the dock, so they cancelled the already-95%-funded project and opened a new one. As a result of the new manufacturing process, the company is now only seeking $13,000 (instead of the original $20,000), and the docks are down from $35 each to $19. That's a pretty massive savings – now you can essentially get two for the price of one original.
