PSA: Amazon Has A USB OTG Cable For Less Than A Dollar With Free Shipping, So You Should Probably Buy It

On devices without a full-size USB port (read: most), using external USB peripherals - like keyboards, mice, game controllers, etc. - is basically a non-experience. In order to use said accessories, you need an OTG cable, which essentially converts the microUSB port of a device into a full-size port.

Right now, you can get one such cable from Amazon for $0.83. Yes, eighty-three cents. That's crazy cheap. Not only is this cable useful and affordable, but the shipping's free, too.

Samsung has really been talking up the Note II lately. For good reason, too - it looks pretty amazing.

Samsung Galaxy S III Hitting Telstra In Australia On October 9th, Will Arrive With Jelly Bean Out Of The Box

We've all heard the old saying "better late with a newer version of Android than never," right? That's how I've always heard it said, and apparently I'm not alone. Telstra just announced its own variant of the Samsung Galaxy S III, which will be available beginning October 9th.

The Aussie 4G version of the device is basically identical to the international edition:

  • 4.8" SAMOLED display
  • 1.4GHz quad-core Exynos processor
  • 8MP Rear shooter
  • 16GB storage, microSD Card slot
  • 4G LTE, HSPA+ Dual Channel 3G
  • Android 4.1 with Touchwiz

The good news here is that the superphone will ship with Jelly Bean out of the box, so users won't have to wait for an OTA update to become available to get the latest version of the OS. 

If you've been waiting to get your hands on a 4G GSIII in Australia, the wait is over in ten days.

[Review] iLuv MobiAir iMM377 Speaker Dock Is As Nice As It Is Universal, Which Is To Say 'Mostly'

I have a love-hate relationship with docks. On the one hand, they offer me a place to keep my devices, a home, designating where my fancy smart toy resides in an otherwise chaotic world. I may change which pocket, hand, spot on the coffee table or place in my heart that a phone belongs, but a dock is always a constant. When night comes, the dock is its resting place. On the other hand, paying $50 or more for a dock that I can only use with one phone is not something I'm a fan of.

Among those devices was the ATRIX, Photon, and Electrify, which are all basically the same phone. Now, Motorola has made yet another change to the timeline, and it's not good news for owners of the aforementioned devices.
