Google Keep

Google has officially released their newest app, Google Keep. Basically Keep is an Evernote competitor that helps you take better notes in either text, audio, or picture form. Google Keep is now available in the Google Play store for devices running Android 4.0 and above. Arstechnica takes a closer look at the app over here.

It looks like Evernote has another competitor in the note-taking game. Though it was leaked only a few days ago, Google has officially lifted the curtain off its Google Keep note-taking service. Keep allows users to quickly jot down ideas, make checklists and voice notes, and archive important photos. Everything is then stored away in Google Drive, and it syncs to all of your Google-linked devices.

Rosewill @ CES 2014

We had the chance to stop by and see Rosewill at CES 2014 and saw a whole bunch of new products. Rosewill produces a ton of different products and they seem to always be releasing new products so we had a bit of catching up to do.


Rosewill had a whole variety of cases on display and this year they've got some very nice looking aluminum cases that they have just released. Typically aluminum cases cost a fair bit more than steel cases but Rosewill has a couple offerings that won't break the bank and will make it look like you spent a whole lot more than you actually did.

Rosewill Case Lineup @ CES 2014


Rosewill had quite a few new products on display from their gaming lineup which included gaming keyboards, gaming mice, mousepads, headesets, and pretty much anything else a gamer would need. 


Another interesting product launch from Rosewill is their R-Studio lineup of earbuds. Rosewill has released 3 versions and you can expect to find them ranging from around $39.99 USD (F-340's)-up to $59.99 USD (F-860's). We have seen quite a few earbud offerings at CES 2014 but Rosewill's are some of the more affordable ones we've come across and we look forward to taking a close look at them in the future.

Sennheiser focuses on wireless at CES 2015

Every year we try and meet with Sennheiser at CES to see what they have that is new, refined and better and this year their big focus was on wireless. Many companies can put a Bluetooth receiver in a set of headphones, but they don't all sound alike. Sennheiser takes they excellent Momentum line and puts basic Bluetooth features in this great product and manages to keep the audio quality they are known for.

The other wireless set they were showing off was the Urbanite. These have been around in a wired version for a while, but they have joined the wireless world as well and include touch sensitive controls for play, pause, forward, back and to answer and end calls. Take a look at the video below for more details.

Microsoft wants to bridge gap between Xbox and PC

Microsoft's video game chief Phil Spencer has announced that they are working on a new app that will work on both Xbox One and Windows 10 PC's that will allow you to run Xbox games on your PC and PC games on your Xbox. The gaming industry is huge dollars so trying to bridge the gap between them is a smart move if they can do it right. 

Microsoft also announced that they will be bringing an adaptor out to allow you to hook your wireless Xbox One controller to your PC, which is something people have been waiting for.

ABCNews has more details.

Phil Spencer, head of the company's video game division, detailed Microsoft's plan for game makers to create universal apps that can run on both Xbox One consoles and PCs with Windows 10, as well as smartphones, tablets and other devices running the forthcoming version of Windows. That includes HoloLens, Microsoft's wearable headset that gives wearers the ability to interact with three-dimensional images.

"Our goal with gaming at Microsoft is to allow people to play games wherever they are," Spencer told game makers Wednesday at the Game Developers Conference. "We know for developers that it's critically important for you to reach those gamers wherever they are."

Rosewill RNX-AC750RT Gigabit Router Review

We have just posted up our review of the Rosewill RNX-AC750RT Gigabit Wireless AC router. This router is the current flagship from Rosewill, and while it isn't the fastest router we've seen, it makes up for the wireless speed with an awesome feature set that allows you to do a lot of extras - without hacking up the firmware. The wireless is still pretty snappy at close to 250Mbps, but it falls behind other products that are much more expensive. For price and performance, it's pretty hard to beat, but you should read our review for all the details.

Overall, the performance and package of the Rosewill RNX-AC750RT is really good. While it certainly isn't the fastest wireless router we've seen, in terms of wired performance it comes in right at the top of the charts. They combine solid performance with a very robust feature set and a bunch of extra setup options not usually found in mainstream routers.
