These cute little speakers from iUi look like someone pulled a side mirror off someone's MINI Coooper and turned it into a speaker.  They connect wirelessly to your audio device through Bluetooth (AAC and apt-X Codec) or NFC; if your device has neither, the speakers also have a 3.5mm aux-in jack on the back.  The IUI [...]

Sometimes you really don't want to be tethered by wire to your phone or MP3 player, and these days Bluetooth speakers and headphones are commonplace. Satechi was good enough to send us a pair of the BT Lite Headphones to review.  Now I'm used to being "Wired for Sound", and I figured surely being wireless has [...]

Solutions to this problem include various hands-free systems like Bluetooth headsets and speakerphones. Plantronics has just introduced a new addition to the last category.

atomic9-wristband-1

We all know that due to safety reasons, we shouldn't talk on cellphones when we're driving. That's why some states have instituted laws that prohibit holding a phone up to the side of your head to talk while driving. They require hands-free devices like visor mounted speaker phones and Bluetooth headsets. Today I want to [...]

Just say "Hello Moshi" to activate 13 voice control commands that allow you to set up five speed dials, ask for a list of commands, call back the last incoming call, check the [...]

ZOMM is a multi-function gadget that can fit in your pocket. It is a wireless leash for your cellphone, that will signal with an audible alarm when you're too far away from your phone, thus preventing lost phones.

bluetooth-001-500x375

Despite my extra geekiness and my affinity for electronic gadgets and toys, I only very recently acquired a cell phone with bluetooth. I'd been using a Motorola V325 with Verizon for three years (try this - they'll start begging you to upgrade to a new phone a few months after your "New every two" date), [...]
