Break free from tethered headphones with Magzet magnetic audio jack

Break free from tethered headphones with Magzet magnetic audio jack

The Magzet is a magnetic audio quick connection that wants to change the way you use audio jacks on all your devices. Instead of being tethered to your laptop, tablet, or smartphone by your headphones, the Magzet is a breakaway connector that can connect headphones to any audio jack. It's designed to work with all audio devices from those ubiquitous Beats headphones to Apple's generic earbuds. After 18 months of product development, the team behind the invention is launching a Kickstarter to crowdfund their magnetic connector.

All 650 MPs in House of Commons to receive iPad Air 2

All 650 MPs in House of Commons to receive iPad Air 2

Once the current elections are wrapped up, all 650 members of the House of Commons will receive a special tool to help them perform their tasks. With a funding boost of about $300,000 (£200,000) annually, the MPs will all get an iPad Air 2 and a laptop of unknown make. It’s the latest workaround for Apple, who has been diligently working to get the iPad into hands of enterprise, schools, and now government. Questions loom, though, as critics say MPs will be playing games, not passing laws.

New Ebola-proof tablet designed for medical field workers

Ebola field doctors' need for an "Ebola-proof" tablet is finally filled. Hose it down with de-contaminating bleach, and all of the data will still be safe as its virus-free exterior. Here's something you probably never considered about the world's Ebola outbreaks: How can doctors and nurses keep track of patient data when every piece of paper, pen, and clipboard becomes contaminated just by being in the hot zone? As it turns out, according to Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF), the doctors were shouting patient data over makeshift barricades to avoid spreading the contagion.

Acer Aspire Switch 11 review: the best of both worlds

Acer is back with another convertible PC: the Acer Aspire Switch 11. As with this machine's previous iteration, the Aspire Switch 11 is both a tablet and a laptop, being whichever you'd like it to be in any given moment. This is nothing new, but these type of machines can often miss the mark when it comes to usability. Such isn't the case with the Switch 11 -- though a bit on the thick side, this convertible PC works wonderfully as a laptop and even better as a tablet. Will it meet your needs? Read our full review to find out!

Acer Iconia Tab 10 Android tablet flaunts Full HD display

Acer Iconia Tab 10 Android tablet flaunts Full HD display

It's been a while since we've heard from Acer's budget Iconia Tab line and apparently the OEM has been busy. Although the company's affordable devices sometimes earn it the connotation of being cheap, whether deserved or not, this time it isn't holding back. At least too much. While the new Iconia Tab 10 does still fall under the category of budget tablet, Acer is at least giving it a worthy Full HD screen, which, with Zero Air Gap tech, makes it a rather worthy one for the price.

Samsung’s new 128GB eMMC 5.0 storage targets the lower end

As repeatedly mentioned before, with the push for higher displays and CPUs on smartphones slowing down just a wee bit, attention is now being given to the last part of the system to catch up: storage. We are entering a period of not just faster flash memory for mobile devices but also growing densities.

Samsung quietly unveils Galaxy Tab A in Russia

Samsung quietly unveils Galaxy Tab A in Russia

Samsung has announced a new line of tablets in Russia, without much fuss or fanfare and not even an official PR statement. It's almost as if it were ashamed to let it be known that it has a new family of Android tablets, and maybe it's for good reason. Like their Galaxy A smartphone namesakes, these two Galaxy Tab A tablets are pretty much mid-range mobile devices seemingly designed for a specific use case in mind. But, unlike those smartphones, these tablets are still completely plastic.

Neptune Suite offers more “dumb terminals” for Neptune Hub

Neptune Suite offers more “dumb terminals” for Neptune Hub

The Neptune Duo has barely taken off the ground and already the Canada-based startup has already bigger, better, and more ambitious plans ahead. It has just launched at Indiegogo what it calls the Neptune Suite. As the name implies, it is an almost complete set of accessories that mirror a smart device's display. But, being Neptune, they all evolve not around a smartphone but a smartwatch, which Neptune has named, quite appropriately, the Neptune Hub. The idea may sound strange at first, but on further thought, it is actually quite interesting.
