iPhone 5 Hands-on

If you have been waiting for the next generation of iPhone your wait is almost over. September 20th is the day both the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C start to ship. Engadget has some hands-on time with the iPhone 5S and shares their thoughts over here.

As you may have already heard, the 5s is rather similar in overall hardware to the iPhone 5, though there are a few changes in key places. As you can see in the above image, it's available in three colors: space grey (which has black highlights on top and bottom), white and -- as rumored so many times -- gold.

Luxa2 @ CES 2014

We took at a look at some of the mobile products from Luxa2 and saw that they have embraced Qi wireless charging in ways that we wish other companies would. They have a few really nifty products and you can check them out in our CES 2014 coverage!

Monoprice at CES 2015 - More than just cables

CES 2015 continues to roll on and today we had the chance to stop by and see the folks at Monoprice and some of their new products they've introduced for the upcoming year. Monoprice was at one time best know for their cables and accessories, but they've continued to add new products, lots and lots of new products. Monoprice was proudly showing off their new 28" 60Hz 4K monitor. There have been a good number of 4k monitors hitting the market in recent months, however, Monoprice is offering theirs for $499 USD which is going to be tough to beat.

In addition to Monoprice's new 28" 4K monitor, they were also showing off their 30" 2560x1440 which retails for about the same money. This panel has higher quality color reproduction which justifies the higher price-per-pixel.

Pay Your Bills in GMail

If you use Google Now, you may be a bit surprised to see your bill reminders popping up on your device. This is the contextual invasion (or beauty) that is Google and it's not going away. In fact, Google wants to take things a step further and they want to deliver your bills through GMail and have you submit payment right through your email. While I'm sure the security issues and obstacles are huge, I really do love this idea. Super simple.

According to a document obtained by Re/code, Google's working on a way for you to receive bills from your service providers in your Gmail account, and pay for them without having to leave the confines of your inbox. The service, currently code-named "Pony Express," is apparently being prepped for a launch in late (think fourth quarter) 2015.

ASUStor AS5004T 4-Bay NAS Review

We have just posted up our review of the ASUStor AS5004T 4-Bay NAS. ASUStor ups the power on this unit away from the Intel Atom and give you incredible performance as well as a host of features that you probably won't ever use. This box is made for more that just serving files, media and websites. You can actually play Minecraft, Emulators and more; plus you can stream it all to your favorite mobile device. It's fantastic and not that expensive, but you should read our review for all the details.

We setup a four-drive RAID 5 array and used Automatic Load Balancing to get the most out of the dual Gigabit network connections and when in use at VulcLAN 2015, we managed to connect over 40 people to it and absolutely punished the NAS with some crazy heavy load. It didn't hiccup, flinch or hesitate at all. Performance was top notch. While ASUStor has labeled this drive in their 'Home to Power User' performance tier, it can easily be used in a small business for data backup, central storage, cloud storage, media serving and more.
