Umano-Thumb

I'm a big fan of public radio, podcasts, and any form of news consumption soothing enough to lull me to sleep if there isn't enough light stimulating my eyes. Umano suits me well. It's an app that lets users listen to articles from top news sources read by professional narrators. There's no excessive emotion, no pundits talking over each other, no background music, and no silly sound effects (okay, there are a handful of those).

Update: Verizon has responded to our inquiry about the Nexus 7 LTE registration issues. A company representative said that the Nexus 7 LTE would be certified for the Verizon network at some point.

That isn't much to go on, but it's certainly promising - it implies that Verizon is at least aware of the problem and taking steps towards upgrading the company's infrastructure to compensate. Of course, it could take any amount of time for Verizon to certify a new, unlocked device for their network (and Verizon isn't exactly known for speedy response when it comes to devices and software).

How many times do you unlock your smartphone within the span of a minute? I can't count the number of times I've unlocked my phone, started a podcast, put it down, changed my mind, unlocked the phone, selected a new podcast, put the phone back down, heard a chime, unlocked the phone, responded, and put the phone down - finally - for long enough to focus on something else. For the sake of convenience, I desperately want to leave my phone unlocked, but doing so frankly isn't safe.

There are heaps of Bluetooth speakers out there with more or less the same design. Sure, there’s a little tweak here and there – some of them might sound a bit better, and others have better battery life. The Bem Wireless Outlet Speaker takes a somewhat different approach. This unit has no battery because it plugs right into the wall like an AC adapter. In fact, it kind of is an AC adapter.

If you're sick of snagging the cable from your earbuds on everything possibly imaginable, then there's but one solution for you: a set of Bluetooth 'buds. Ridding yourself of those pesky cables has been proven to improve one's quality of life by up to 19%, according to a recent study that I just made up.

But seriously, a set of Bluetooth buds/headphones can easily make life less annoying. And while we've reviewed several different sets over the last year (give or take), the Bluebuds X from Jaybird ($170) just may be the "best of" in that realm – Artem definitely loved them.

If you listen to the Android Police Podcast, you may be well aware at this point that I'm not the biggest fan of Samsung's Android-powered cameras. And I have reasons for this! I've used the Galaxy Camera as a replacement for my crappy little point-and-shoot for weeks at a time, and it just never grew on me. It was insanely bulky for the very average photos it produced (for a point and shoot costing well over $350), and the lack of simple but powerful features like manual focus (yes, really) was a total turn-off.

Sony has taken a real beating in recent years. Even after shedding the dead weight of the Ericsson joint venture, Sony has yet to find its stride. The Xperia Z smartphone was a valiant effort, but other OEMs are overshadowing that device as 2013 drags on.

The less competitive Android tablet space might be where Sony can revive the Xperia name and win the hearts of Android users. And this is the device Sony is hoping does it: the Xperia Tablet Z.
