There are plenty of companies building smart hubs for your home, but it's safe to say that SmartThings, which was bought by Samsung, is one of the most popular. That's not only due to the wide range of connectivity options it has, like both ZigBee and Z-Wave, and the 10-hour backup battery life, but also thanks to the big number of smart home gadgets that are compatible with it. Even better, the community is very active and usually figures out a way, whenever technically possible, to add compatibility to brands and accessories that aren't supported officially.
One of the last companies to integrate with SmartThings is Google and its Google Home speaker / voice control hub. Read More

The original Pebble predates Android Wear, and since the first model, the Pebble line has continued to improve and develop.

If you like well designed games with engulfing graphics, appropriately adapted to mobile gameplay, gamepad support, and dozens of unique characters and environments, you'll love Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath.

It has since been downloaded over 100,000 times and managed to keep a 4.5 star rating with nearly 17500 reviews. Impressive.
Stranger's Wrath first cost $4.99, but it has been hovering between $0.99 and $2.99 over the past few months. Now though, it's down to an even lower price, just like Munch's Oddysee was a few weeks ago. Read More
