At times during the Samsung press event today, it seemed as though the much-anticipated upgrade to the company's popular phone, the Samsung Galaxy S5, was almost secondary to the new Gear Fit wearable device -- at least as far as the attending press was concerned.
Jawbone's latest Era headset has a lightweight and comfortable design, ease of use, and impressive audio quality -- all of which make it a lot more wearable on the long term than most consumer headsets have been up to now.
It's becoming more and more useful to have a "hands-off" headset for use with your smartphone -- and with your Internet-based phone system (such as Skype). The Jabra Supreme UC can handle both tasks at once.
Microsoft has expanded the range of covers that will be available for the Surface 2 -- including one that is not yet available, but which was, for me, one of the most interesting gadgets shown at the tablet's introduction.
While it's a nice idea to allow buyers to design their own phones -- and while I think that the Moto X may be one of the better, if not the best, consumer phones out there right now -- the process still has a couple of kinks to be ironed out.
With the Moto X, Motorola Mobility and Google have chosen a more conservative, but perhaps wiser path: To make a reasonably powerful phone attractive via cosmetic hardware choices and ease-of-use software additions.
