Smart bulbs are nothing new. You have products like the Phillips Hue or TCP Connected bulbs that range from a little expensive ($20) to very expensive ($60).
GE was sick of these high-priced bulbs (or they wanted to get into the game a little late). Most people really don't need millions of colors to choose from in their ordinary home lighting. Sure, it might be nice but for kits running up to $200 for just 3 bulbs, you're really getting into luxury item territory.
Kinect on the Xbox One is... imperfect, at best. Voice controls, when they work, are just awesome. Unfortunately, that's not always the case. While Microsoft has slowly been improving Kinect support, it just doesn't always work.
TechMatte provided me with a couple of cool little accessories to review over the past few days. I got my hands on the HTC One M8 amCase, the TechMatte Portable Stand, and the amPen.
I'm really enjoying the stand and case, plus the pen is a great "addon" for the two other items. After the break, check out my video review and more images of all the products!
Coming from the Razer Tiamat 7.1, the Sennheiser G4ME ONE is a world of difference. The microphone stands out best between the two and seems to be of a higher quality than the Tiamiat I used before.
Audio, overall, is fantastic. It really packs some punch with the bass and most levels seem to be great. Playing games like Battlefield 4 with these on really immerses you in the game environments. Music and video playback also sounds great, and - again - the bass really stands out here. (So if you don't like bass in a headset, you probably won't care for these!)
Cruzerlite has always offered a great selection of TPU cases for the majority of phones out there today, and the S-Line case for the HTC One M8 is no different. The case offers a small amount of protection when compared to other more bulky cases, but it's enough to get the job done for those of us who may only drop our phones once in a blue moon.
Check out my video review after the break.
