Mighty Vibe returns to bring Spotify offline with you anywhere

Mighty Vibe returns to bring Spotify offline with you anywhere

Streaming is pretty much the de facto delivery and consumption method for digital content these days. So much so that getting access to offline content is ironically now a paid subscription feature rather than the default. But there will always be times when an Internet connection isn't available or isn't good enough for quality audio, let alone video streaming. And there are also times when you'd rather not bring your phone with you to increase its chances of survival. For both those cases, the Mighty Vibe, a.k.a. the Spotify iPod Shuffle, might be your cup of tea.

Phonak Audéo Marvel hearing aid: binaural audio for Android, iOS

A lot of the advancements in smartphone technology, from multiple cameras to high-end audio output, have been made with the physically capable masses in mind.

Multi-monitor setups are so common these days that even notebooks that are normally meant to have only one screen are being used with external monitors.

Google Pixel Slate official: Price, release date, details

The Google Pixel Slate is one giant tablet made to traverse the boundaries between desktop and mobile. This device is sold as a tablet, on it's own, but much like some of the most obvious competition (the iPad Pro, for example), it'll make the most sense with its sold-separately keyboard accessory. This device runs Chrome OS, and because the newest versions of Chrome run Android apps (and have for some time now), you'll find a whole lot of Android going on, too.

Devialet Phantom Reactor is a tiny speaker that packs a lot of punch

It's been a little while since we last heard from Devialet's Phantom line of speakers, but today it's getting a rather exciting expansion.
