Why I'll Probably Ditch My US Telco For Google's Project Fi

Onkyo's New Wireless Earbuds Look Hilariously Huge

Onkyo is best known for its strong tradition of audiophile-grade home theatre gear.

A Hidden Tesla Coil Wirelessly Powers This Lamp's Interchangeable Bulbs

Google Wants To Become A Wireless Carrier, But Not For Why You Think

We’ve long heard whisperings that Google wanted to become a wireless carrier, and over the weekend, a Google executive confirmed those rumours. Intriguing! Just imagine Google Fibre — but for mobile.
