Cove charges (and hides) your smartphones and tablets at home

A usual household with three-four people living in it would normally have an average of 2 gadgets each person, so that means at least 8 gadgets that may need charging at the same time. That would be okay if your household had a lot of power outlets. But what if you live in a small space with limited sockets? It will be a tangle of wires and a first-come first-served way of charging. A new IndieGoGo project wants to help you solve that problem and in a pretty way at that.

Amazon Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, now have X-Ray for Instant Video

"It's that guy again! Wasn't he on...uhm...what was that show again?" Normally, when you watch a movie or show and this situation comes up, you pause the video (if you're on demand or on video streaming), get your phone or tablet, then try to search for specific terms that would eventually lead you to who that actor is. But it will take you a few minutes, maybe hours. Now if you have an Amazon device and Amazon Instant Video, it will just take you a few seconds.

Pictures of almost bezel-less Nubia Z9 leaked

It looks like a lot of smartphones now, specifically those from Chinese brands, are aiming to go as bezel-less as possible. While those devices may not be the sturdiest, they do look the shiniest and the prettiest. A new smartphone from ZTE called the Nubia Z9 is laying claim to the least bezel-y phone in the market and based on the device's leaked images ahead of its launch, it does seem to look that way.

Mobile carriers deleting some pre-installed apps from Galaxy S6

ASUS to launch fitness-centric, 10-day battery life VivoWatch

ASUS' current wearable, the ZenWatch had a pretty great two-day battery life, for a device on the Android Wear platform. It looks like they're trying to top that with a new smartwatch that they're launching, and this time, it's not just 2 days or even 5 days, but it claims it can run on 10 days without recharging it. Will the VivoWatch live up to its promise of being a fitness-centric smartwatch?

Google Store slashes price of Moto 360

The Moto 360 is one of the smartwatch models I've been personally eyeing but there are too many choices out there that it's hard to decide. But this could be The One now for me as Google Store slashed off the Moto 360's price from $250 down to $165. That's a huge discount there but Google wasn't the only one who did lower the price of the Android Wear smartwatch. Best Buy and Amazon also cut off $100 from any variant of the Moto 360--resulting to more people able buying the Moto 360 in any material or color they want.

Space Marshals is a Western sci-fi tactical shooter, load up

Pixelbite Studios is based in Helsingborg, Sweden and is mostly known for futuristic racing games. They go in totally a different direction with this, their new project called “Space Marshals”. By design, it looks like a Western, but the storyline involves heavy sci-fi elements, and the gameplay is tactical shooting a la Metal Gear Solid. What do you get? A pretty enjoyable ride.
