So This Is What A $US150 Xbox Controller Feels Like

“$US150 for a gamepad? Hell nah.” When Microsoft announced the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller, those were my first thoughts. Then, like a fool, I decided to try it. You can probably see where this is going.



Screw Wearables -- Now Wi-Fi Will Monitor Your Body

Pro/Con: Why Google's Fi Could Be Awesome And Terrible

Today, Google announced its very own wireless network in the US. Just $US20 a month for unlimited call and texts, plus $US10 per gigabyte of data. No contracts or termination fees. Google will even refund your unused megabytes. Sounds awesome. So what’s the catch already?


The Best (Possible) Features Of Google's New Wireless Service

Google has a wireless service coming. We don’t know when or who can get in on it, but we now know a lot more of the (possible) details, thanks to a new leak. And some of these (potential) features sound (hopefully) pretty great.

August Smart Lock And Connect Review: I'll Use Keys, Thanks 

When we first reviewed it, we called the August Smart Lock superb. I knew that sooner or later, I’d invite one into my home. I got my chance a few weeks ago with the August Connect dongle, a $50 add-on that gives the lock internet access so you can control it from anywhere in the world. Sadly, it also revealed the lock’s nastiest flaws.


Two Of The Big Wireless Charging Organisations Are Merging

There are way, way too many wireless charging standards, which is part of the reason that the technology is struggling to take off. Now, two of the competing bodies have decided to merge.


Seagate Makes Some Compromises For A Cheap $130 Wireless Drive

The easiest way to expand the storage capabilities of your smartphone or tablet is with a wireless external drive. It means there’s never any memory cards to swap (or lose) and you can share videos, photos, and music with multiple users at the same time.
