The best digital camera in auto mode?
My wife and I are very excited to be having a baby, and I'm starting to think it would be nice to have something a step up from our Canon Powershot S100. Don't get me wrong, I think it's a fantastic camera, but it's still just a point and shoot.
So we're looking at digital cameras, but we have a requirement. See, we're having a kid, I run my own business, and she's starting a new job. We are not blessed with an abundance of time, and frankly we're not even that interested in becoming photography... Read more →

RX100 M3: New wrappers for 1080p video, will it work with iOS?
This sad puppy at 1920 x 1080 resolution feels the same way I do that I can't transfer 1080p video from my RX100 to my iPad.
The RX100 M1 and M2 both recorded 1080p video, however Sony decided to encode video in their AVCHD format. This meant that if I recorded video on the go at true 1080p, then I wouldn't be able to import or edit it on my iPad (iOS doesn't support AVCHD).
In order to get video to record in a format that the iPad could read (e.g., MP4), the RX100... Read more →

1Password shows off their iOS8 app extension, and it looks awesome!
As you may recall one of the newest additions to iOS 8 is a more open intent system, and this is something iOS fans have long been wanting. Currently there is tool called OvershareKit [1] that developers can take advantage of, but that's only for sharing. What the wonderful folks at AgileBits have done is create[2] an extension to let developers use 1Password to auto-fill password fields. It's a huge feature I've been wanting out of 1Password and iOS for a while and... Read more →

Halt and Catch Fire S1E9: Party Rock
Here we are at the penultimate episode of Halt and Catch Fire with no clue about whether the show will be renewed. I've been enjoying it thus far (if I wasn't I probably wouldn't still be watching it or writing these posts), but how I feel about it getting canceled or renewed entirely depends on what happens in the final episode. Right now, there are a lot of balls up in... Read more →

What's causing this spinning wheel in iOS all day long?
Yesterday, this spinning wheel was going to town all day long on my phone. I'd force close apps and nothing would change. It's no wonder my battery life went from about 90% to 20% in 3 hours, while barely touching my phone! Finally, after rebooting my phone last night, it appears to have gone away.
That said, is there any way to see what apps are currently accessing data? (Similar to how we have a screen that tells us what apps are currently /...

Stuck between the htc on m(7) and iPhone 5c need a little help!
I really like both of the phones but I'm in the need for a new phone. My upgrade is soon but I'm having trouble picking one maybe some good things about either one will help me decide. Thanks.

Streaming some baseball through TiVO's iOS app and the Roamio
I can watch baseball in the backyard! Life is good...
I've written about our TiVo Roamio before, recently when I was wondering why the TiVo app didn't seem to stream with it: http://www.engadget.com/discuss/what-s-up-with-my-tivo-app-1psx/
Anyway, fast forward a few months and a couple of app updates later, and things seem to work much better! So much, that I'm able to actually stream live games (and recorded shows) to my iPad without... Read more →

Concurrent Bluetooth capabilty
Hi guys.
I had a question about the bluetooth feature. So the watch connects to the phone via bluetooth - that I get and I assume I leave my bluetooth on and connected all the time (4.0 shouldn't drain the battery) but what happens when I get in my car and want to use the car speakers for audio? Would I have to turn the watch 'off' when I get in my car so it can pick up the car bluetooth or I could I have it run concurrently, with audio for calls and music to run through the car, and push...

Nexus 5 vs Moto X battery (Summer 2014)
Happy owner of a Moto X here. Great phone but I would like more horsepower.

I read a lot about Nexus 5 battery life but nowhere can I find an updated bettery life review.

I would also like to know how (battery life) it compares the Moto X?
