Galaxy S8 Rumors
Tech fans around the world are abuzz as the rumors ramp up ahead of Apple's big iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus event next week.

Hello will begin selling its Sense sleep tracker at Best Buy and Target

Cotton Sense and Sleep Pill While Kickstarter is a great place to start selling products online, and Amazon is a good next step, you’ll often see hardware companies begin shipping their products to local retailers like Best Buy. There’s a good reason for that — online commerce may be increasingly eating away at shopping offline, but that doesn’t mean people aren’t spending a ton of money at… Read More

5 alternatives to Sonos speakers that all offer killer sound

Best Sonos Alternative 2016

Sonos wasn’t the first company in the world to release a wireless speaker, but there’s little question that the company played a major role in popularizing the category. Thanks to the success Sonos has had, every audio company imaginable has jumped head first into wireless speakers.

iPads as effective on kids as sedatives at calming them before surgery – medical study

If you’re a parent who’s ever wished you could just give your kids a sedative to calm them down, apparently you can – handing them an iPad has exactly the same effect.

A French medical study reported at the World Congress of Anaesthesiologists in Hong Kong found that using iPads to reduce anxiety levels in children prior to surgery was every bit as effective as the sedative midazolam. Midazolam is normally administered prior to a general anaesthetic …

Apple will finally update its stagnant Mac lineup this fall

Apple Mac
Over the past few months, it's become increasingly hard to ignore the fact that Apple's Mac lineup has gotten unusually stale and, dare we say, even a bit outdated. Apple's Mac Pro, for example, hasn't been refreshed in nearly 1,000 days. There is good news on the horizon, however. For any prospective Mac buyers who have been patiently waiting for a massive refresh, Apple's hardware plans this coming fall shouldn't disappoint. According to a new report from Bloomberg, Apple over the next few months is planning to roll out a slew of long-overdue Mac upgrades. Whether you're in the market for a new notebook or a new desktop computer, it appears that Apple will have a little bit of something for everybody.
