Glowdeck Combines Wireless Charging, Bluetooth Audio, Notifications, And Some Pretty LEDs To Make A Successful Kickstarter Thing

Why do you have so much stuff on your table? What if there was only one thing that could charge your phone, play music, tell you the time, and do a bunch of other stuff? That would be cool, but there isn't. There will be soon, though, now that Glowdeck has hit its Kickstarter goal. Just set your phone on the Glowdeck, and the magic happens (allegedly).

[New App] Popular iOS App Retrica Comes To Android For The Selfie Lovers Who Are Not Yet Sick Of Filters

Retrica's popularity can be summed up in one word: selfies. If somebody - let's call her Sue - needs a picture of herself right this moment, she needs an app with a minimalist interface that doesn't get in the way. And since Sue Somebody is working with less than optimal circumstances and a mobile phone with a crappy front-facing camera, she wants a wide range of filters that could mask how bad of a photo she's about to take.

'Glass Updates Are Back' - KitKat Update To Bring Photo Bundles, Voice Command Sorting, Much More

After much wringing of hands, it looks like Google Glass is back on its update track, with a long-awaited bump to KitKat imminent. Announced in a post to Glass' Google+ page earlier, the update is a big one. Obviously the headlining feature of the update is a move to Android 4.4, but Glass will soon be able to bundle photos, videos, and vignettes from each day (to free up precious timeline space), reply with photos in Hangouts, and send feedback directly from Glass.

[Deal Alert] Samsung HomeSync On Sale At Best Buy For $99 ($200 Off) With Free Shipping Or In-Store Pickup

The Samsung HomeSync hasn't been a huge success, and the astronomical price probably had something to do with that. The device retails for $299.99, and it's only a few bucks cheaper on Amazon right now.

Sony QX10 And QX100 Receive Version 3.0 Firmware Upgrade With Quicker NFC Connect Times And "Half-Press" To Focus

It doesn't matter which phone a Sony QX10 or QX100 owner uses, these cameras are better. The drawback is that the user experience is nothing short of awkward. One particular issue is slow NFC connection times, making it challenging to capture spontaneous shots (and aren't those the best kind?). Fortunately, this is the type of problem an update can address. Firmware version 3.0 is now available for both models, doing precisely that.

Rumor: Google's Android App Icons To Get A Moonshine Makeover [Updated]

Included in Android's design guidelines is a section regarding iconography. The guidelines give very specific instructions on how to design a launcher icon for Android - it should have a unique silhouette, it should have a slight downward perspective, and it should be clearly visible no matter what wallpaper is behind it.

Many have opined, however, that it's odd that Google maintains different iconography for its apps on Android and their corresponding web services.

Google Patent Application Details Micro Camera Embedded In Smart Contact Lenses That Could Improve Vision, Aid The Blind, And More

Google makes cool stuff. There's self-driving cars, that funky street view camera, and those experimental glasses anyone will be able to buy for one day only tomorrow, April 15th. Yet for every product that comes out, there's another in the pipeline that may or may not ever see the light of day. Last month we learned of a patent application for a pair of smart contact lenses that would process blinks as input for wearable devices.
