Sitting on my desk is currently the third pair of Satellite headphones Blue Microphone has shipped me since the company first sent them. In May. It's been a long time coming, and I'll let you know why, but our review is finally here, months later. Unfortunately, even with this third and final refined pair, I just can't recommend Blue's attempt at a premium wireless headphone. It's too compromised, too dated, and too expensive to justify.
To be clear, I've loved Blue's headphones to dates - the MoFis, Ellas, and Lolas all impressed me. In particular, Blue's efforts to integrate high-quality analog amplifiers directly into its headphones (aside from the fully-passive Lolas) have been of great interest to me, and I've generally been very satisfied with the results.

Motorola's DROID line, exclusive to Verizon in the United States, tends to get a few color variants every year. The high-end DROID Turbo, the only entry for the 2014-2015 cycle, already has several: it launched in black, red, and "ballistic nylon," and a blue version has been on sale for some time. By the end of the month shoppers will have three new options.
The new colors are variants of the flat black model, with the metallic parts on the speaker grille, volume rocker and power button, and camera lens ring colored in new trim. Blue, orange, and pink (violet) will be offered, with matching colors on the "DROID" badge on the back of the phone. Read More
The HTC One M8 hasn't been out for all that long, but it's already feeling the blues. This isn't just a slight case of them, either. According to a leaked press shot from @evleaks, the phone's suffering them from its heads down to its toes. Just take a look at this press image and see for yourself.
It's amazing how a phone with a body to die for could still find itself so depressed. But to the M8's credit, this condition runs in the family. The M7 hit the States last year in a metallic blue option that was exclusively available through Best Buy. Read More
Blue makes a lot of things better - berries, rhapsodies, alternative percussion groups. Whether or not Motorola's RAZRs look better with an azure paint job is something we'll leave up to you. Verizon is now selling blue versions of both the mid-range DROID RAZR M and the flagship DROID RAZR HD, though the latter is more of a trim than a full paint job. Both versions were spotted by notable tipster @evleaks about three week ago. The blue RAZRs are available for purchase online now, and should be in Verizon retail stores starting today.
The DROID RAZR M seems to get the lion's share of the paint job here. Read More
In case you missed the Black Friday deals on the Galaxy SIII but still want to get your hands on Samsung's flagship smartphone, Amazon's got a deal for you. The retail giant's Wireless arm is offering the Galaxy SIII (in your choice of white, blue, black, or brown) connected to Verizon for just $79.99 when you activate a new account or add a line to your existing service. This beats Amazon's previous deal on the SIII by about $20.00.
With an ample 4.8" Super AMOLED display, 2GB RAM, an 8MP camera, and a slim 7.6mm thick chassis, the Galaxy SIII is no doubt one of the best-spec'ed Android devices available. Read More
The wait is nearly over for the Galaxy S III if you're on AT&T. The big blue ball has just announced that Samsung's newest flagship will be available for same-day purchases starting July 6th in all of its stores nationwide. The company isn't sharing specifics on whether that will include only the blue and white versions of the phone, or if we'll also see AT&T's exclusive red version of the device. If we had to bet on it, we'd say the red version will still be a little way's off.
The device will also be available for overnight shipping on July 6th, so if you're keen to order online, you'll be covered as well. Read More
Today, BlueStacks - a company specializing in Android app integration in Windows - will be making two large, and (hopefully) impressive announcements.
One of these announcements is the Alpha version of their App Player for Windows. If the name didn't already clue you in, BlueStacks App Player allows you to run Android applications on your Windows machine and enter a whole new level of Appoholism. This means that all of your favorite Android apps are now also your favorite PC apps and, by extension, your favorite Android games can now be your favorite PC games. Imagine the convenience of playing Angry Birds on a huge screen that isn't in your bathroom (Android Police cannot be held responsible if you get confused in this scenario and require new pants).
