Whenever a service we use gets bought by another company, we're always filled with hope and anxiety over its fate. It could either be a case of growth and improvements or a slow dwindling descent into irrelevance. I'm afraid Allthecooks may start falling into the latter category if its new owners don't react swiftly to the criticism of their most loyal users.
Are you bored of the endless parade of touchscreen slabs that smartphones have become? Do you want a new idea, a strike of genius, something to foam at the mouth for? Then look no further than the Japanese market. The companies there are just scrubbing every assumption we have and building weird products to appeal to their awesome and quirky market, like this Kyocera DIGNO rafre. Let's pretend that we all know how this name is pronounced and move on to the highlight feature of the phone: it's hot water and soap washable.
HowHigh are you? Oops. Hi, how are you? You'll have to forgive me, I'm a lil' buzzed right now, nothing illegal I swear, I have glaucoma and the doctor prescribed this herbal cure. Natural stuff he swore. But each time I take it, I get high-strung and paranoid, a pot. Lot. I said lot. This sounds so bong. DAMMIT, wrong. And sometimes it feels like I'm on a spinning wheel and... HAHAHAHAHAHA! Did I say spinning weed? That's funny. Billion dollar idea. A board game with weed types and you take whatever the wheel lands on. Tag line: It lights up so you light up.
There comes a point in any phone's life when it just wants to put its futon a couch and rest for the night. It has worked an entire day and it deserves to be a lazy boy after all those tweets, messages, photos, calls, and the millions of other things you made it do. If you have no Ikea what I'm talking about, you should go check out Phoniture, seriously, you otto-man. It may look like a regular couch stand for your phone, but trust me, it gets way bedder.
It's a wireless Bluetooth speaker, a microphone, and a cradle. There are a bunch of cables involved and the detachable ottoman's battery life only lasts 3.5 hours for Bluetooth music playback — you can't escape these two deap-seated problems.
If today has taught us anything, it's that Lenovo doesn't like keeping its feet on the ground. The company's crazy concepts and ideas department, which is obviously not getting along on a shoestring, hasn't been dragging its feet in the last year. It has just unveiled a new Smart Cast phone concept, a Magic View smartwatch prototype, and now it's time for the other shoe to drop — literally.
See, usually humans use their face to convey their mood and expressions to the world, but if most people are goody two-shoes who walk with their head tilted down to avoid looking at others in the eyes, you have to find another way to get their attention.
You're not alone. We all feel the catrocious weight of our daily grind, from early meowning until late evening, and by the time the clock strikes a dozin' bells, we're ready to roll over on our work stations and catipulate. Evidence supporting:
But if you're in pussyssion of an Android Wear watch and you find yourself kitten tired the entire time, you'll deem this very nappropriate. It has pastail colored lazy cat doodles fur every day of the week, with hours labeled as naps, some in catslock and others in lower cats.
This siestacular face works on both circular and square watches and comes with a darkly catmospheric ambient mode.
Hear Me, this deal is most probably limited to the US only, like all the previous Play Music offers over the past couple of weeks. It's not my fault, this is the way labels and geographical limitations work. You can whine, curse, boycott Google, but it's a lost cause. With that out of the way, let's get to the meat of the matter.
The Play Music team is on a roll. I mean, Lorde was something, but Imagine Dragons are just insanely more Radioactive — at least in this humble person's opinion. I was introduced to their music while watching Chuck, It's Time was playing in the background, and I simply had to grab my phone to SoundHound that tune.
About three weeks ago, Paradox Interactive released what could possibly be one of the best game trailers we've ever seen. It was for its then-upcoming game Leviathan Warships, and was chock-full of more ship puns than you can shake a stick at.
In fact, it was so good they decided to release a second trailer, with even more puns.
If you've had enough puns (I'm kidding – there's no such things as too many puns) and are ready to actually play the game, it's now available in the Play Store. The second trailer above notes a price of $10, but it's listed for $4.88 right now – most likely a launch sale price.
It seems to be a growing trend among manufacturers to show off the process behind creating their products. Today, Samsung joined the ranks, bringing us an inside look of the stress test process that the company's moneymaker undergoes. To ensure that every Galaxy S III can stand up to all the punishment you can throw at it, there are a number of machines that attempt to scratch, crack, or soak the handset to see how well it can hold up. Oh, yeah, and there's an automated ass that sits on the phone over and over again.
If you've ever seen a stress test video, there won't be much here that's entirely shocking, though this clip is in Korean.
