There are no shortage of Bluetooth-enabled devices in our homes. If you own a smartphone, chances are you’re capable of streaming audio to some other device if you’re not interested in listening to tunes on the phone’s small speakers. Most tablets, and even many PCs, have Bluetooth connectivity built in, and it’d be a shame not to take good advantage of all the wireless technology has to offer.

Last.fm has began offering streaming music over a decade ago, though its service never quite took off the way Pandora’s did. Subscription music services later [...]

BlackBerry CEO is Very Upset About Product Leaks, Threatens Legal Action

Mere days after a private beta build of an upcoming version of the upcoming BlackBerry 10.3 update leaked onto the web, BlackBerry CEO John Chen has posted a rather angry blog post on the official BlackBerry blog swearing revenge on individuals who “falsely posed” as an employee of a BlackBerry partner in order to “obtain access to secured networks” – or, in other words, to obtain confidential trade secrets exactly like information regarding that upcoming BlackBerry 10.3 update.

Smart and Senseless: Pay an Extra $50 For a Google Play Edition HTC One M8

One of the highly touted features of HTC’s new $649 flagship phone, the (terribly named) One M8, was Sense 6, or “Sixth Sense,” the smartphone maker’s newest iteration of its proprietary Android OS ROM. Sense has been a mainstay of all HTC phones since 2009, making changes to the Android experience like the overall look and feel of Android, not to mention the addition of Blinkfeed and the gesture-based wake-up and camera features, among plenty other HTC-specific bells and whistles. But if you want to pay an extra fifty dollars, you can [...]

The concept of player reputation isn’t new to the Xbox universe; the Xbox 360 has had a reputation system in place for years. But it appears that Microsoft is making it a bigger part of its newest console, the Xbox One.

Xbox One gamers have had reputations since the console launched in November, though they’ve been largely for show. [...]
