Drinking alcohol is a thing people like to do. Unsurprisingly, some people aren't sure when enough is enough, so they continue to drink said alcohol until things get...bad. We've looked at a couple of different BACtrack Mobile Breathlyzers in the past - the $50 Vio and its more accurate $130 brother - which would help one quantify how intoxicated they actually are by reading their blood alcohol content level (as opposed to what?

Two months ago, we looked at the newest member of the SHIELD family, NVIDIA's SHIELD Tablet. This eight-inch beast is one of the first devices to feature NVIDIA's screaming fast Tegra K1 processor, which makes it not only a killer gaming tablet, but an all-around great digital sidekick for general use. I've used it for everything from Trine 2 gaming sessions on the TV (in Console Mode) to writing full reviews with an external keyboard, and it has been up to the task every time.

It's basically my job to type, so I type a lot. There's quite a bit more to it than that, of course, but typing is kind of the cornerstone of being a writer of any kind. Because of the amount of typing I do, a good keyboard is important. Not just a good keyboard for my desktop and laptop, but when I'm going to be doing some work on my tablet, I need something I can trust there, too.

Every kid loves Legos, and most people in general have loved Legos at one point in their life (the only exception are people who were never kids). It's one of those toys that has stood the test of time – kids have not only enjoyed, but basically obsessed over Legos for more than 60 years. That's pretty impressive.

One of the reasons why Lego has been able to maintain popularity is because it's constantly evolving as a toy.

There comes a time in ever person's life when they need to charge and/or sync like seven things at once. For years we've been left on our own to figure out how to deal with this quandary – do we use seven different chargers scattered all throughout the house? Fewer chargers and alternate devices on charge? Try to use the same charger for everything? There really isn't a good solution.

The folks over at Eggtronic knew there had to be a better way.

As a Dropcam user, I often wish I could get a little bit more than an activity notification on my Android Wear watch. I don't want to watch the video feed for 10 solid minutes, but the option to quickly see what my camera is seeing in an instant would be amazing. If you're a tinyCam user, you just got that luxury. I'm jealous.

As of version 5.6, you can now say "OK Google, start tinyCam monitor" to your Android Wear watch and get a quick glimpse of the video feed.

You know what goes great together? Stocks with a side of free phone. Seriously, if you haven't tried it...well, now's your chance. We've teamed up with Handy Apps once again to hook one of you guys up with a free phone – an LG G3, to be exact – but we'll get into that in just a little bit.

First, we want to talk about Handy Apps' Stocks IQ. If you track stocks in any way, this may be an app you want to have installed.

There is no shortage of calendar apps for Android, each of which is looking for a way to set itself apart from the crowd. Lately I've settled in with Sunrise Calendar as my go-to, as it's just easy to use and provides all the features I want in a calendar. And it just got a little bit better.

As of version 1.3, it now syncs immediately with Google Calendar. When changes are made in any of the apps, on the web, or in the Chrome app, then it happens across all devices in real-time.
