Satechi CD Slot Mount Review: It's Time To Give Your Car's CD Player A Purpose Again

The Satechi CD slot mount is well worth a buy (oops, I was supposed to save that for the end, wasn't I?). Last week I went hands-on with the Kenu Airframe+, an AC vent mount that I absolutely loved. But some readers pointed us in the direction of CD mounts, a category I hadn't yet considered, and one that gives purpose to a part of my car that I otherwise would be just fine with leaving off entirely.

Samsung Level Over, On, In, And Box Review: Samsung May Finally Be Getting Sound Right

Samsung's finally getting into the premium personal audio market with its Level line of products, but can they just walk into this increasingly crowded space, one that is, frankly, dominated by the oft-maligned Beats Audio? Two pairs of headphones, one pair of earbuds, and a portable Bluetooth speaker comprise Samsung's first real effort to break into this lucrative space - are any of them worth your attention? Perhaps surprisingly, the answer could be yes.

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet Review: It's Hard To Overstate My Satisfaction

It's no big secret that I'm a huge fan of NVIDIA's SHIELD. In fact, I believe I called it my favorite device from last year on a recent podcast, a claim that I readily stand behind. To me, it shows how versatile Android can be, despite the fact that the unit itself is essentially a one trick pony (it's damn good at that one trick, though).

Then there's NVIDIA's second foray into device design, the Tegra Note 7.

Modern Combat 5 Review: A Mobile Shooter Loaded With An Extended Magazine Of Caveats

Like a great many developers, Gameloft has resorted to rolling in-app purchases into most of its games. One notable exception to that de facto rule is the new installment of the Modern Combat series. These games have much more production value than any other mobile first-person shooter, but this is a genre that's notoriously hard to adapt to touchscreens. So, can a big production budget make Modern Combat 5: Blackout worth your time?

Dash Review: This Ride Has Gone Far In The Six Months Since Launch, But It Still Has A Bit Farther To Go

Dash is one in a slowly growing number of Android options that lets you track where your car is, where you've traveled, and how much gas you've burned up. To make things simple, it combines everything into a basic scoring mechanism - though this is only part of the app's appeal. Those of you with older cars can see why your check engine light came on without having to go to a mechanic, and the enthusiasts among you can turn to the app as an extension of your dashboard that provides more information than your vehicle manufacturer deemed necessary.

Mad Catz C.T.R.L.R. Review: MOJO's Kick Ass Controller Comes To All Android Devices

A few months ago, I reviewed Mad Catz's first console, MOJO. While I came away with mixed feelings about stock Android with nothing more than controller input, C.T.R.L.R. itself left me impressed (the name, on the other hand, is terrible). It's packed with useful buttons a-plenty, including full navigation, media, and volume controls.

Now, Mad Catz has released a standalone version of CTRLR that can be used on any Android device (or Windows PC) over Bluetooth.

[Hands On Video] Android's New Screen Casting Feature Is A Game Changer, And More

Yesterday Google flipped on the Chromecast screen mirroring feature that the company announced last month at Google I/O after teasing us for months. With it, users just tap a single icon to have everything on their screen magically projected onto a television. Forget waiting for individual apps to implement Chromecast support, this feature will let you mirror all the things, and it opens up a world of mobile games to a screen size many of them have never seen before.

Leo's Fortune Review: An Action Platformer To Treasure

Being completely covered in blue (or greenish blue, whatever) fur is not enough for Leo, the protagonist fluffball in Leo's Fortune – he also has a stylish mustache. Leo was a well-off ball of fuzz when suddenly bam. All his gold was stolen. The thief made one mistake, though. A trail of coins could lead Leo to his fortune, but only if you can navigate this lush world brimming with danger.

Yantouch IceDiamond+ Bluetooth Speaker Quick Look: The Light Show Goes On The Road

A little over a year ago, I reviewed the Yantouch BlackDiamond3, a visually appealing speaker that makes a show of the music thanks to its 16,000-color LED lights. While a decent little speaker, it had a few downsides – namely the lack of a battery and unsatisfying low end. The company is now back with the speaker's successor, the Diamond+ ($150), which fixes at least one of those issues.

This model comes in two different colors – white or black – with each one being appropriately named (IceDiamond or BlackDiamond).

Acer Iconia One 7 Lightning Review: Basically What You'd Expect For $130

Acer is one of those companies that, in my mind, builds very good budget-friendly hardware. It may not offer the fastest or the best on the block, but when you're on a tight budget, Acer is always a solid choice.

The same goes for its Android devices – Acer has done a pretty good job of placing itself in the "budget, but not really awful" category when it comes to its mobile division.
