Chromecast, or the new Roku streaming stick? with the new Roku stick coming down in price to $50, you can now enjoy all that Roku’s platform has to offer without a set-top box. On the other hand, Chromecast offers a lot of unique twists that make it incredibly useful. Tough choice.

Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo, and Gear Fit pricing may have been revealed

At MWC last week, Samsung annouced a refresh for their popular Galaxy Gear smartwatch. Along with the updated Gear came two other wrist wearables, the Gear 2 Neo and Gear Fit. While much was made of the devices themselves, one thing went unannounced: what they'd cost. A new report hints at what that pricing may be.

Android usage: more than a third of users are stuck in 2011

It seems fair to say that many Android users want to be running Kit Kat. But the truth of the matter here, not all that many are actually getting that wish. In fact, according to the latest Android 'platform versions' report released by Google -- only 2.5 percent of users are on Kit Kat. Furthermore, even though Kit Kat has been available for roughly four months, it remains at such a little percentage that Google has yet to split the percentages between 4.4 and 4.4.2.

Chrome Beta for Android update adds Chromecast support

Chrome Beta saw an update yesterday, which is usually not a big deal. Bug fixes and other minor tweaks are normal, but this one added something special.

LG G Pro 2 review

LG was showing a few devices during during Mobile World Congress. One of those was the LG G Pro 2, which naturally, is the successor to the LG G Pro.

With that in mind, read on to see how the handset stood up during our testing.

Samsung has officially announced the Chromebook 2 Series. This updated Chromebook will be available in 11.6-inch and 13.3-inch configurations.

Omate TrueSmart: out running

We have to remember one thing when talking about any gadget -- just because you may hate it, that doesn't mean it isn't a perfect device for someone else. While some may criticize smartwatches, or the Omate TrueSmart in particular, I am thinking it may be a good running partner. It is a bit early to get super excited here, however I did take the TrueSmart out for its first run this morning. And at risk of offer the spoiler in the beginning, it seems to have performed rather well.
