Samsung's Gear 360 Action Camera Gets Its Own Manager App, Compatible With Galaxy S6, S7, And Note 5 Series Phones

It's impossible to launch a new flagship phone these days without some fancy (and expensive) companion devices. At least that seems to be the approach that Samsung and LG are taking, and the former has a very interesting 360-degree action camera on the way. The Gear 360 captures both still photos and video in (you guessed it) 360 degrees thanks to dual lenses and a ball-like design. The Gear 360 is launched in Samsung's home market of Korea, and though it's yet to get a western release, the companion app is already available.

[Hands-On] Google Announces MODE 'Snap-And-Go' Watchbands For Android Wear

Google already sells various Android Wear devices in the Google Store, but now it's getting into the accessory game with the MODE watchbands. These watchbands are on sale today in leather and silicone varieties and will work on any watch (Android Wear or other) that uses standard lugs. They're designed to be easily swapped with a new clip system, but they're not cheap. Google is asking $50 for the silicone ones and $60 for leather.

[Deal Alert] Pebble Time Round Gets A Nice Discount To $144 ($56 Off) On Amazon

Pebble's unique smartwatch platform still has a few advantages over Android Wear and the like, particularly in battery life. And the latest version, the Pebble Time Round, is worth considering for anyone who was a fan of the original Pebble. It's considerably better-looking than the square Pebble Time (relatively large bezels notwithstanding), and the color screen and three-button interface are preserved. Today several of the Pebble Time models with leather straps have a generous discount over on Amazon.

Prospective buyers can pick up the black case + black strap model (20mm), black with red strap (20mm), or steel with tan strap (14mm) for $143.99, a $56 discount off of the retail price.

Almost A Year Later, Razer's Turret Wireless Keyboard And Mouse Combo Is Finally Available For A Whopping $160

It wouldn't be fair to call the Razer Forge TV a failure. No, that simply wouldn't be right. If I did that, I'd miss the opportunity to call it a half-baked, poorly-supported product that lags behind even the limited field of Android TV devices like a three-legged dog chasing a nitrous-powered mail truck. Almost a year after its US launch the set-top box is still inexplicably incompatible with Netflix, the promised PC game streaming software feature has disappeared, and even after being injected with the decrepit soul of OUYA the Forge is basically a dead platform. But there's one last thing to report on before we can finally lay it to rest: the Turret.

LG Makes A Surprisingly Big Deal Out Of Its UX 5.0 Software Skin Upgrade With A Video And Press Release

Years and years after Samsung, HTC, and Motorola started plopping bloated skins on top of stock Android, manufacturers are still trying to create semi-artificial market differentiation with their shiny software toys. While manufacturer skins have gotten more tolerable as of late (thanks in no small part to the way they've also become much more resource efficient), it's still vaguely annoying that all these companies feel the need to spend vast amounts of time and effort completely overhauling something that already works pretty well.

That Onewheel Electric Skateboard-Unicycle-Thing Has An Android App Now

The Onewheel typifies a brand new generation of personal transportation devices. They're the kind that make you go "huh, that's kind of interesting," then you look at a limited specification sheet and a sky-high price tag and decide to stick to your rusty bicycle. (It costs $1500 for the base model, if you're wondering.) But apparently there's something more than excess and capacitors built into that thing, because now it has an official Android app for management.

Yeelight Bedside Lamp Review: A Pretty Nice Wireless LED Lamp For A Pretty Reasonable Price

Connected "smart" lighting is far from a new concept, but in late-2012, Philips released the first Hue lightbulb which became the blueprint for a new category in an old market. It was no longer enough for lights to turn on at a scheduled time or with a clunky wireless remote, they had to become smarter, more efficient, more flexible, and we wanted to control them with our smartphones. But a product of this type lends itself to variations, special features, and stylistic choices beyond those of the original innovation. This brings us to the Yeelight, a Bluetooth-enabled bedside lamp with a stylish look, simple controls, and a couple of clever features to go along with it.

Eero WiFi Router System And Android App Launch To Very Positive Reviews

Google is trying to make WiFi routers easier and less ugly with the OnHub, but a company called Eero is trying to accomplish the same with a slightly different approach. The Eero WiFi system has just launched, and early reviews are very positive for both the routers (yes, plural) and the Android app.
