Samsung is releasing three new 360-degree wireless speakers -- the R1, R3 and R5 -- as a follow-up to its Portal-esque R7 device. They're not quite egg-shaped like their predecessor (and its own predecessors), but they feature the same "ring-radiator" technology that helps them fill a room with so...

The new REGZA R1 series (up to 42-inches) and REGZA H1 series (32 and 37-inch displays) sport USB ports for...

It ain't the first time we've seen a gizmo take a backwards approach to launch, and we get the feeling it won't be the last.

For some reason DAB radio manufacturers love rocking the retro look, and Vita Audio's R1 is no exception.
