The Google Live Case 'Shortcut Button' Looks Familiar - Workshop May Still Be Alive After All

Way back in August of 2014, we got a peek at a service Google was experimenting with, at the time called "Workshop." The service would allow users to create customized cases for their Nexus 5, featuring either photos or map imagery of their choice. The cases would come with a special live wallpaper, also customized around the user's preferences.

Aria's Sensor Will Let You Swipe And Tap On Android Wear Without Touching Your Watch

Here's the problem with Android Wear. Although my G Watch R is always with me, notifying me and taking my commands, controlling it with anything but voice seems a tad cumbersome.

One of the things that I love most about my Sony Z3 is its compatibility with Qualcomm's Quick Charge 2.0 technology. The phone takes forever to charge with a standard USB wall charger (like almost the entire night), but with a Quick Charge device I can bring it from dead to fully juiced in fraction of the time. I have chargers plugged in in various places throughout my home, but I only own one Quick Charger.

Xiaomi's US Store Is Now Live And (Almost) Ready To Sell You Things That Are Not Phones

After announcing the launch of its US Mi Store recently, Xiaomi has flipped the switch and is ready to sell you things. Although, "sell" isn't quite accurate—nothing is in stock at the moment. You still won't be able to buy a Xiaomi phone in the US, but it's something at least.

QardioArm Review: Blood Pressure Monitoring Never Looked This Sexy
