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.

The Perfect Streaming Music Service

With all of the music streaming services on the market (and with Apple joining the party), people are taking a look at what is the best music service for themselves and their family. Emily Yoshida compares Spotify, Tidal, Rdio, Apple Music and Google Play Music this time around. While there are a ton of other services, these are the big names that have the largest libraries and the most features overall. The winner is subjectively announced at the link below.

The biggest ongoing problem in my technological life is when, where, and how to easily listen to music. There are two reasons why this is a problem: 1) music is a vital part of my life - I need a steady stream of new tracks and artists to listen to, and I need to be able to cue up my old favorite songs at crucial moments - and 2) I strongly suspect there is no perfect way to listen to music. But sometime in the mid-aughts, I came close.

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.
