Sennheiser Urbanite XL Wireless Headphones

We have just posted up our review of the Sennheiser Urbanite XL Wireless headphones. These headphones have the legendary audio quality of Sennheiser with a little extra bass thrown in for good measure. They try and step out above the competition with wireless capabilities, NFC and a folding design that is still very rugged. Overall, they are decent, but you should check our review for all the details.

I really can't find much wrong with these, although if you're an audio purist, you probably won't like the extra bass that they covertly add into your music. I didn't at first. After listening to them for a week or more as part of the review process, I was a bit disappointed when I used different headphones. The extra thump of the bass is not overpower, and quickly become an added touch to your favorite music - whatever it is.

Android App Pick #187 - Relic Run

We have just posted up another Android App Pick of the Week and this week we are stepping into the boots of one of my favorite heroines. Relic Run puts Laura Croft in the spotlight and this game is perhaps the best of any "Temple Run" style game there is. In addition to the standard movements and controls, you get to wall-run, parkour, ride ATVs and more. Check it out and you'll be hooked for hours!

Liquid Metal Android is All About Security

The Turing phone has been making headlines for a while as the concept of the device was discussed. Well, the time is rapidly approaching for launch and it seems as though this liquid metal (liquidmorphium) is about ready for prime time. It is waterproof, features a fingerprint sensor but doesn't even have a USB port. It uses a proprietary magnetic connector that actually makes a lot of sense, but will require you to remember your device specific cable. This phone has a lot of great security features in addition to it's pretty cool design.

“We’re walking into the cipher phone age." That's the way Turing Robotics Industries CEO SYL Chao introduces the Turing Phone, an Android smartphone that aims to put security, durability, and fashion above all else. In a myriad of ways, the Turing is anything but your typical phone. There's no headphone jack, and the thing doesn't even have a USB connector. Instead, you charge it with a plug that looks like a clone of Apple's MagSafe.

Windows 10 EOL Date Announced

While Windows 10 hasn't offically launched yet, Microsoft has already announced the date they are ending support for the OS. Although many people said that this was "the last version of Windows", this clearly shows that there will be other versions - not just updates and subversions. Windows 10 will be unsupported by Microsoft on October 14, 2025 - so if you like planning ahead, you should maybe consider your upgrade options now.

Run a piece of Microsoft software after the end of extended support, and you so so entirely at your own risk. If new malware vulnerabilities are discovered after the end of extended support, Microsoft won't publish any fixes – unless you sign a paid, Custom Support Agreement (CSA), at considerable cost.

PayPal's Value Soars

Ebay purchased PayPal back in 2002 for $1.5 billion dollars and brought it under the Ebay banner. Fast forward 13 years and Ebay has decided that maybe letting PayPal function on its own and return to being a publicly traded company might be beneficial for everyone. PayPal was listed once again on the NASDAQ stock exchange and after a couple days of trading has seen its value soar up bringing PayPal's value up to $52 billion. Ebay's stock has dropped a bit since the split, but overall it looks like Ebay has probably made the right move and is benefiting financially from it. Reuters has more on this story.

PayPal Holdings Inc shares jumped as much as 11 percent in their highly anticipated return to the Nasdaq after more than a decade in eBay Inc's fold, valuing the digital payment processor at about $52 billion.

PayPal is a giant in the market it helped create - it processed 4 billion payments totaling about $235 billion in 2014. But the online payments landscape has changed drastically since the company was snapped up by eBay in 2002.
