Sennheiser CX 686G SPORTS In-Ear Headphones

We have just posted up our review of the Sennheiser CX 686G SPORTS. These are in-ear headphones that are made to withstand the wet, sweat and vigor of your active life. If you are active - or want to pretend that you are - make sure to check out our review. These are pretty solid and offer a lot of value for the money. Catch all the details in our review.

With the CX 686G Sports blocking most of the ambient noise, the listening experience was even better. Vocals, whether in Audio Books or music was clear and crisp. No matter how loud I played a wide variety of music, it was very clear and seemed to be well balance. Bass was deep, mid-range was clean and the highs weren't harsh or overbearing.

HTC Gives Away Your Fingerprints

In the world of fingerprint security, I always have my reservations. While I do use it on my Lenovo Thinkpad, they do have a reputation of security in the enterprise market. The same cannot be said for HTC and Samsung. It appears that the HTC One Max stores fingerprints as simple "dbgraw.bmp" files - that's right bitmap files in a standard folder that can be read by any application that wants to read files on your devices (pretty much all of them). This is a bit of an oversight, that will no doubt be remedied soon, but in the meantime, is available for anyone to snag. Whoops.

Users of biometrics-equipped phones will do well to upgrading to a supported and recent ROM, which given the telco and vendor patch bottleneck probably means moving older devices to custom operating systems like CynaogenMod. If that sounds a bit weird or scary, know that the community-coded Android variant claims more users than BlackBerry and Windows Phone combined.

The Voices Behind Siri

As far as voice assistants go, Siri is by far the most famous but have you ever wondered who actually voices Siri? Apparently the guys over at the Guardian did as well and have interviewed the 3 people who are the voices behind Siri.

Apple users are all familiar with Siri, the company’s voice-activated personal assistant that helps out with everything from speed dialling, scheduling meetings and searching for directions. Users of iOS have had the privilege of Siri’s help since its introduction as part of iOS 5 for the iPhone 4S in 2011, and the function was also added to the third-generation iPads a year later.

VHS Camcorder

Have you been craving to go back to VHS quality video instead of the nice and crisp 1080P video that your iPhone produces? Well for $3.99 you can do that thanks to a new app called VHS Camcorder. It's pretty funny to see people paying money to make video worse but I guess the fun factor is definitely there. TechCrunch reviews this app over here.

If you long for the shitty quality videos of pre-2000, the ones shot on a camcorder, then this iOS app is for you. Fittingly, it’s called VHS Camcorder and it costs $3.99.

It’s kind of worth it, and that’s coming from someone who doesn’t pay for a lot of apps.

Not only does your video get turned into something with zero HD quality whatsoever, it also sounds like utter crap. It even sticks that little date and time stamp on your video along with the “PLAY” text in the top right
