Fugoo XL Bluetooth Speaker Review: First In Durability, Second In Sound

About a year and a half ago, I called the original Fugoo "the speaker I'd make if I made speakers." The design of it is actually brilliant — it's waterproof, offers 360 degree sound, is crazy-robust, and gets an insane 40 hours of battery life. Really, it's a beast.

Then, back at CES (yes, in January), Fugoo announced the XL. Like the name suggests, it's a big-ass version of the original Fugoo speaker. I've been waiting for what seems like forever to spend some time with it — as good as the original was, a bigger version is logically better, right? I mean, it makes sense to me.

[Deal Alert] The First Season Of Six Different Children's Shows Including 'Bo On The Go' And 'Animal Mechanicals' Free On Google Play [US Only]

Netflix is a great resource for parents wanting to occasionally entertain their kids with some educational shows without all the crappy Skylander commercials. There is just one issue – the content is only available when you have an active internet connection.

Which, in the days of broad LTE and WiFi coverage, is an easy thing to take for granted. That is, until you board a five-hour flight with a toddler in your lap, seated between two people who are looking at your child with a mixture of disdain and loathing. You can see in their eyes that they are just waiting to criticize your parenting as soon as your kid starts to cry.

TAG Heuer's Android Wear Watch Is Called The Connected, Costs $1500 With Sapphire Glass, A Titanium Body, And 1GB Of RAM

TAG Heuer has now officially announced the most expensive smartwatch running Android Wear, which means (by the infallible logic of luxury watch enthusiasts) that it's also the best. To be fair, in terms of materials and technical hardware, the TAG Heuer Connected probably is the best Wear device at the moment: it uses a new-to-Wear 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor and 1GB of RAM, along with 4GB of storage and a 410mAh battery. That means it should be faster than most current Wear devices, and with double the memory, it might have significantly better performance. It had better: TAG's suggested price and the going rate on the online store is a whopping $1500.

Crossy Road Developers Release 'Shooty Skies,' A Casual Free-To-Play Take On Shoot-Em-Ups

Crossy Road is often presented as a prime example of what's wrong with casual games, because it's a free-to-play game that's based on a classic (Frogger) and lacks any kind of sophistication. But Crossy Road does a lot of things right, too: it has an interesting if not unique visual style, it's accessible to any kind of gamer, and best of all, its free-to-play model is entirely reasonable, asking for only one dollar at a time and never forcing players to buy currency or tokens for random rewards. It's a good little game, is what I'm saying here.

Two of the three-man team from Crossy Road have released a new game in the same casual vein, Shooty Skies.

Android Auto v1.4 Cleans Up The Companion App Interface And Adds Granular Control For Previously Connected Cars [APK Download]

The Android Auto companion app is generally one of those things you're probably only going to work with a couple of times before you're done setting things up, then it'll stay tucked away, never to be seen again. But that doesn't mean it shouldn't look good and be as useful as possible. An update to the Android Auto app began rolling out today and it's a near total refresh of the user interface. Granted, there's not a lot to change, but it now looks much more like the companion app for Android Wear.

Starific - Endless Reactor Bursts Into The Play Store For Free With No IAPs And Optional Ads

Pong and Space Invaders went to a rave one night and got totally wasted on Pixie Stix and Starbursts. Nine months later, Starific - Endless Reactor, was born. The premise of the new psychedelic mobile game, by developer Beveled Edge, is simple. Keep your star(s) from escaping an octagonal grid while wiping away ever appearing waves of tiles and power-ups. Not grasping it? Watch the promo video and I'll catch up with you after.

Ok, now that you have seen a bit of game footage, we are hopefully on the same page. This game is a frenetic, eye-popping, ear-pounding, thumb-frustrating good time.
