Wilson X Connected Football hands-on: The IoT gets competitive

With the Super Bowl upon us, what better time to preview the latest in Wilson X's wirelessly-enabled sports tech, the Connected Football. Though it's stuffed with Bluetooth and a bevy of sensors, at first glance you'd be forgiven for mistaking it for a regular football but, as Wilson demonstrated when I met with them in San Francisco this week, it'll unlock a wealth of new data when it arrives in time for the 2016 season.

Dangerous Golf brings powerups and destruction to the game

Dangerous Golf brings powerups and destruction to the game

I have a strange relationship with golf. I've played a few games with friends over the years. It's enjoyable, but not something I go out of my way to do. Putt-putt, on the other hand, is something that I could do all day long. My relationship with video game versions of golf are similar. I can enjoy serious ones with friends, but give me something a little more silly, and I'll probably enjoy it a lot more. Which is exactly why I'm looking forward to Dangerous Golf.

But now you can do it officially and with game stats right in front of you. In short, Facebook has just created the social network equivalent of a sports channel.

DraftKings and FanDuel can operate in New York again

DraftKings and FanDuel can operate in New York again

Last month we brought you the news that the Supreme Court ruled that both DraftKings and FanDuel could no longer operate in the state of New York. Well, specifically, that they were barred from “accepting entry fees, wagers or bets from New York consumers in regards to any competition, game or contest." That pretty much takes all of the fun out of what those companies do. It looks like that ruling is changing, at least for now.
