Belkin WeMo Motion, Switch, And Light Switch Review: Good Luck Getting Them To Work Right

Home automation is a pretty cool thing, and it's becoming more popular and encompassing every day. The ability to turn off a light from the other side of the house (or world) is a pretty cool feeling, but it also provides peace of mind – the days of wondering if you shut everything off before leaving are quickly coming to an end.

Belkin has been working to make this sort of automation simpler and more accessible to everyone with its WeMo line – a small group of devices that connect to Wi-Fi and make easy work of automating simple tasks and provide remote access to whatever unit they're attached to.

Dropcam Pro Review: Keep An Eye On What's Important To You, No Matter Where You Are

About a month ago, Dropcam released Dropcam Pro ($199), an upgraded version of its previous camera, the Dropcam HD ($150). This new version boasts quite a few improvements over the HD version (which is now simply known as "Dropcam" and nothing more), like a wider field of view, increased zoom, improved low light vision (night vision), and better audio quality. So, basically everything. Well, everything that matters anyway. The real question is "how useful is it?" – it's not only useful, but versatile.

Soundfreaq Sound Spot Review: A Speaker That Looks As Good As It Sounds

The amount of Bluetooth speakers on the market is mind boggling. Not only has every brand that ever made a speaker in the past throwing its offering into the arena, but the category has brought forth many new contenders as well, each of which claiming theirs is the "best." That's actually a silly assertion, as best is completely subjective. But I'm getting off topic. 

The way I see it, finding the right Bluetooth speaker for you isn't all that daunting of a task.

Remember Those Awesome Android Propaganda Posters From Andrew Bell? Cruzerlite Turned Them Into Nexus 7 Cases

Back in July of this year, we gave four sets of amazing Android Progress Administration Propaganda Prints from Andrew Bell. These throwback-style posters are stylistically designed to replicate those from the 30s and 40s, and they look fantastic.

Fast-forward to now and Bell has teamed up with Cruzerlite to bring some of this killer artwork to cases designed for the Nexus 7. I was able to get my hands on a couple back at the Big Android BBQ and, to put it simply, these are some of the best-looking cases I've ever seen.

Griffin PowerDock 5 Quick Review: The Charging Solution I've Been Waiting For, But It Comes At A Price

When it comes to Android gadgets, I have sort of a "the more, the merrier" mindset. But that poses a huge problem (aside from my wife's constant anger at money being spent on "another device I don't need"): charging them all is an absolute pain in the posterior. There are generally two choices: cords everywhere! or making my devices take turns charging. If you only have two or three devices, the latter option may be somewhat acceptable; anything more, however, and that's just not practical.

Sony QX10 Lens Review: Sony's Odd New Stepping Stone Between Smartphones And DSLRs

Back at IFA, I got my hands on Sony's QX10 lens camera, one of two such devices the electronics manufacturer announced in Berlin. I wasn't sure what I thought about it then, having only played with it for about a day, but I've spent some quality time with the device since, and I'm ready to lay down my full impression.

For those not quite up to speed, the QX10 (and its higher-end counterpart, the QX100) is a camera in a lens.

Samsung Galaxy Gear Review: What Am I Supposed To Do With This

Watches. A lot people used to wear them, because a watch had two great functional purposes: giving you the current time instantly, and providing a quick, easy, and almost universally recognized way to socially cue that you're becoming impatient / need to go / it's getting late. A lot of people actually still wear watches, but by and large, the reason has changed - it's mostly about fashion. For some people, maybe it was always about looks, but now more than ever the watch is, in any functional sense, obsolete.

Ultimate Ears MINI BOOM Quick Review: The Best Portable Speaker On The Market Just Got Smaller

Back in early July, I reviewed what has since been my favorite portable Bluetooth speaker: the Ultimate Ears BOOM. It really lives up to its name, delivering top-notch sound quality that's nearly impossible to find in most speakers twice its size. Of course, that kind of quality comes at a price – a $200 price, to be exact. And if you wish to utilize the Double Up feature that lets you use two BOOMs at the same time, that price doubles.

SanDisk Connect Wireless Media Drive And Flash Drive Review: Solving The Right Problem In The Wrong Way

Expandable storage seems to be dying off in Android. The excuses reasons are varied, but the writing seems to be on the wall. Of course, each time a new flagship rolls off the line sans microSD slot, fans cry out in frustration. SanDisk is taking on the challenge of making an accessory meant to bring expandable storage to any device. The result is called SanDisk Connect, a pair of portable drives with Wi-Fi that your phone or tablet can connect to for file storage or content streaming.

[Quick And Dirty Hands-On] Check Out This Little Box With A Retractable USB Cable In It From Scosche

A few weeks ago, I went on my semi-annual trip from Texas to Virginia to spend some time with my family that lives there. Throughout the duration of my stay, I had to tether for internet access, as I generally stay with my grandparents (<3), who don't have internet. They're extremely old-school country folks who like to keep things simple. Visiting them is actually incredibly refreshing – the air is pure, and lifestyle is vastly different than what I'm used to.
