Philips Hue Lightstrips and Bloom: An Eyes-on Review
A few months back, I outfitted my man-cave/media room with Philips Hue LED light bulbs in all of my recessed ceiling fixtures. This has given me the ability to set different moods in the room, and even automatically dim the lights to a warm, theater-like quality when I want to go watch a movie.

‘Here to There’ is a Map of Manhattan – As Described by Strangers
Most people mean well when they give you directions. However, they often give pretty confusing directions that might get you lost when you try to follow them. Turning these hand-scrawled directions into an art project, though, is New York conceptual artist Nobutaka Aozaki.

HTC One Sees Red at Sprint

HTC One Sees Red at Sprint
I’m a big fan of the HTC One. It’s one of the best Android smartphones made to date, combining an awesome display, great camera, a fast CPU and GPU, and excellent build quality. But if you buy one, you’ve been able to get it in bare aluminum (or a hard to find black).

Rechargeable AA Battery USB Drive Stores Power and Data
Rechargeable batteries are pretty eco-friendly in the sense that you can recharge them and use them, again and again and again, until they stop holding a charge. However, most battery chargers are bulky and are a pain to carry around, especially if you’re traveling or need to use it on the go.
