    Google Search Starts Listening…Just like Google Now

    Google Now has been a solid product with a unique voice-command interface that really does stand out–even when when compared to Apple’s mighty Siri. Now, the company’s voice element is moving its way to Google Search, as the service will soon be rolling out to all U.S. English-speaking users on desktop, tablet and smartphones–no matter the platform. Simply tap the microphone icon and start asking questions questions; you can ask for flight information, reservations, purchases, and photos–just to name a few topics you can throw its way. Look out for the new feature in the coming days.

    We’re Giving Away A Samsung HM3300 Bluetooth Headset (Yes the one with NFC)!

    CONTEST TIME! I really enjoyed using the Samsung HM3300 NFC enabled Bluetooth headset. It was insanely easy pairing the HM3300 with my Galaxy Note 2, and recently happily discovered it would also pair with a Nokia Lumia 920. I liked this little headset so much, I want to give one to a lucky reader. All you have to do is leave us a comment on this post telling us what you two things you wish you could pair using NFC. I’ll go first: I wish all of my food had NFC tags on it so I could tap them to my microwave/oven to automatically program temperature and cooking time. We’ll pick one winner randomly. Make sure you use a valid email address as that’s how we’ll be contacting the winners. Only one entry/comment per person please! Entries will be open until 11:59PM Pacific today, and we’ll announce the winner tomorrow (Saturday […]

    Giveaway: We’ve Got Five Steam Codes for Defense Grid: You Monster!

    I’ve said it before. I’m a sucker for tower defense games.

    One of my all-time favorite TD games is Defense Grid, and I recently had the pleasure of working with the developers of Defense Grid on their upcoming expansion to the series DG: Containment. I got to meet and record Alan Tudyk (Firefly, Wreck-it Ralph) who is one of my all-time favorite actors.

    It’s Hard Letting Go….of the LG Optimus G

    Have you ever heard the expression, “If you love something, set it free?” Well apparently, Juan hasn’t–or at least if he has, he certainly hasn’t taken it to heart. And though Juan may have had a bit of a problem letting go, Aaron in Tulsa will have no problem welcoming his new LG Optimus G with open arms.
