A Screen-Accurate Bluetooth Version Of The Star Trek Communicator Goes On Sale In January For $150

Ever since the Motorola StarTAC, the loose association between cell phones and the original Star Trek TV series has been painfully obvious. If you want to show your love for America's most iconic piece of science fiction (back off, Star Wars nerds, don't make me bring up midichlorians), you'll soon be able to buy a screen-accurate and officially licensed version of the cell phone's spiritual progenitor. The Star Trek Communicator Bluetooth handset, Starfleet standard issue, will go on sale on January first.

[Android M Feature Spotlight] A Modern Material Bluetooth Icon Makes Its Way To The Share Menu

Stop the presses! We have groundbreaking news for you, fellow Android lovers with a knack for detail and an insatiable thirst for Material. If you remember Lollipop, you'll recall that this archaic OS had an even more archaic icon for Bluetooth when you went to share something. Oh, you've already hard reset your brain and can't recall anything prior to M? Here, let me jog your memory with a screenshot.

Left: Barfville. Right: Yeah baby yeah! 

See? That's L on the lllleft and M on the mmmmright. It looks earth-shatteringly better, doesn't it? A material icon with the boldest bluest color and the longest shadow'est effect.

You can get a Jambox Bluetooth speaker on Amazon, but that requires Jambox money. Folks who dig the style but want something a bit less expensive can get a different music-pumping rectangular box for nearly a fifth of the price. The SoundBot SB571 wireless Bluetooth speaker is available for just $25, which you can reduce down to $20 if you enter the coupon code Q4NERSFR at checkout.

The speaker comes with a built-in audio line, so you're able to plug in devices that aren't able to pair over Bluetooth. There's also a built-in mic, so you can use the thing as a speakerphone. A 1000mAh battery powers it all.

[Android M Feature Spotlight] Android TV Gains Native Support For External Storage And A2DP Bluetooth Streaming

Hey Android TV fans: have you checked out our review of the NVIDIA SHIELD? You should. We worked really hard on it, and it's kind of being blown away by all this Google I/O news. Two things that the SHIELD Android TV can do that the Nexus Player can't are accessing external storage via USB and broadcasting audio over Bluetooth (with the extra remote). But if you flash the Android M developer preview to your Nexus Player, you can access both of those things! Neat!

The Android M build of Android TV will support using external drives for app and app data storage (which the SHIELD also does, by the way) with a formatting option.

Adidas Releases An Android Companion App For Its $200 'Smart' Soccer Ball

Remember those baseballs that measured pitch speed with a little LCD screen right on the ball, the ones that only the rich kids on your little league team had? This is the modern, logical extension. For the last year, Adidas has been selling its Smart Ball, a soccer ball (or football, if you insist) with integrated sensors that can detect speed, spin, strike force, and flight time, and a Bluetooth radio to transmit all that data. Previously it was only compatible with the iOS app, but the company has finally released an app for the most common mobile OS on the planet.

[Deal Alert] The Photive PH-BTE50 Bluetooth 4.0 Earbuds With APTX Support Are Down To $30 On Amazon

I have tried more than a dozen Bluetooth earbud form factors, but the one I absolutely love for everyday use is the Jaybird Freedom Sprint / Plantronics Backbeat Go 2 design. Two small earbuds, one wire, and all the freedom you can think of. It's less cumbersome than the dog tag design (à la Jabra Tag) and lighter to carry around than the necklace style (think Samsung's Gear Circle or LG's Tone series). And when you have something like the Freedom Sprint, you simply wrap up the small wire and put it in a pouch, pocket, or purse and you're good to go whenever you need it.

Kinivo BTC455 Hands-Free Bluetooth Car Kit Review: A Tangled Mess Of A Good Idea

Not too long ago, I took a look at the Griffin iTrip AUX Bluetooth dongle. It was a solid product that delivered on its goal of allowing people to connect over Bluetooth in cars that don't have the functionality built-in. But at $49.99, it's a little on the pricey side. For that cost, you can get a Kinivo BTC455 that not only delivers the same capability, it supports two devices at once, hands-free calls, and controlling music playback. Frankly, it's more bang for buck.

That said, after trying out the Kinivo BTC455, I occasionally longed for the Griffin iTrip AUX. Let me tell you why.
