When I first reviewed the 1964 Ears V6 custom in-ear headphones earlier this year I not only loved the sound, I got the distinct feeling the company tries harder to please its customers than other custom in-ear makers. For example, 1964 Ears V6-Stage headphones are sold with a longer warranty (two years) and lower prices than the flagship models from more established high-end headphone competitors. 1964 Ears doesn't make universal-fit in-ear headphones, all of their designs are custom-molded to your ears for the best possible fit and maximum isolation from external noise. The headphones are hand-crafted by 1964 Ears … Read more
It's not easy being a sad, rich man.
People look at you as if you have a disease. They worry your sadness will infect them.
Yes, they want your money, but they don't want to think that they'll get it and become as sad as you.
Amazon's new campaign for the Kindle Fire HDX aims to solve the problems of the sad, rich man. It's giving him a happy, poor woman to talk to.
This is like "Pretty Woman," if you can imagine Julia Roberts never being able to see Richard Gere.… Read more

Tablets have a small edge over laptops and desktops when it comes to customer satisfaction, but consumer love for PCs in general is down, according to a new American Customer Satisfaction Index report.
Released Tuesday, the ACSI's Household Appliance and Electronics Report 2013 measured the satisfaction levels for personal computers (including desktops, laptops, and tablets) based on interviews with more than 2,700 customers.

Video game controllers have evolved from simple plastic molds disguising circuit boards to sophisticated ergonomic input devices that can not only sense varying degrees of button pressure, but also motion and tilt. Now they're completely wireless, they vibrate, rumble, light up, and make sounds.
As any athlete values his or her equipment, so do gamers their controllers. In fact, the industry has seen an explosive response to the expanding market of controller customization. Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo all offer nontraditional versions of their respective console's controllers, ranging in design from simple alternative color options to over-the-top franchise-inspired works … Read more
Introduced all the way back in Android 2.1, Live Wallpapers provide animated, and often interactive, backgrounds that range from minimalist to downright busy.
As Android has evolved over the years and become more power-efficient, developers have created increasingly more robust Live Wallpapers.

I've put together a small collection of my favorite Live Wallpaper apps for Android, some of which are free. The apps mentioned here are uniquely different from each other and represent some of the best available for the … Read more
On Labor Day, we celebrate those who perform arduous jobs when they wish they could be, well, celebrating Labor Day.
I wonder, therefore, how the cabin crew of a recent Air India flight from London to Mumbai might have kept their good humor when a passenger called them over and said she'd just been insulted by a machine.
She claimed that she'd switched on the in-flight entertainment system and two messages greeted her. The first was: "This selection is not currently available. Please try again later."
Normal enough, you might imagine. However, beneath it were the … Read more

To use this free application, you just need to drag it to a location of your choice. There are no instructions readily available on how to use Bulk Custom Icon for Mac, but the program comes with a basic and (mostly) self-explanatory user interface. The left side of the window, which is clearly labeled, is … Read more
The course of a cell phone purchase doesn't always run smoothly.
The terms can be lengthy, the devices complex and the conclusion unsatisfying.
Sometimes, you don't realize what you've bought, until the returns policy has expired. And then you get mad.
Anger, though, can be expressed in many forms. One woman in Detroit needed to show that her anger was bottomless.
Claiming that her son had been ripped off to the tune of "200 motherf***ing dollars," she marched into a cell phone store and demanded restitution.
Sadly, she lost her equilibrium. I would like … Read more
AT&T customers, and people who buy their Moto X out of contract, can make numerous adjustments to the phone's body and interface before it ships to them from the phone's factory in Fort Worth, Texas. The Moto X costs $579 without a contract.
While Verizon customers can get the standard black or white cases when the phone becomes available to them on August 29, they won't get Moto Maker access until later … Read more
