Pressy turns any headphone jack into a button full of shortcuts

An new project over on Kickstarter has our attention this afternoon. It's called Pressy, and the company is touting it as "the almighty Android button" and the best part is, it's already been fully funded. We're hesitant to talk about kickstarters lately for many don't hit goals, get delayed, and launch late. However, Pressy is an awesome and cheap little accessory many will be excited to grab.

OUYA game console arrives for retail sales

As had been expected, the OUYA game console has arrived with retail stores. Simply put, the console has shifted into general availability and those who are interested but have yet to make a purchase now have a handful of retail outlets to pick from. The pricing is the same as we had seen during the pre-order period, however there is some news about a few games that have recently arrived.

GameStick delayed yet again; Now expected in August

GameStick, which has been a continual development of a gaming controller equipped with Android (similar in concept to OUYA) that can be played on your TV, has announced that they will push back the release of the controller itself by at least a month. This follows them doing this once before, as they promised they would have it delivered by the first of this month, and instead put it back yet another month (July 1st).

Pebble smartwatch pre-orders will begin shipping “soon”

It looks like the folks at Pebble are getting ready to move into the next phase. Basically, the Kickstarter shipments are beginning to wrap up and shipments for those who placed a pre-order (after the Kickstarter project) should begin going out soon. In fact, a recent update on the Get Pebble site mentions that the first Pebble pre-orders will be "shipping soon." With that in mind, those who pre-ordered through the Get Pebble website may want to pay attention to their email.

AGENT smartwatch Kickstarter project goes live

The Pebble wasn't the only smartwatch to launch by way of Kickstarter, however given the financial success of the campaign and the delays that followed -- it is the one many seem to remember. Anyway, while shipping delays with the Pebble appear to be coming to an end, there is another smartwatch that has recently appeared on Kickstarter. This latest is called the AGENT and they are coming forward with an expected shipping timeframe of December 2013.

Phoenix hits Kickstarter goal to bring Android apps to HP TouchPad

I think most of the people who follow the mobile realm when HP purchased Palm to get webOS wondered exactly what HP was thinking. The operating system already failed to lure in developers and buyers for Palm. HP apparently felt that its name or position was all it needed to get webOS to become a popular and viable alternative to Android and other smartphone operating systems.
