The Magnet Base Cable Wrangler Review

The Magnet Base Cable Wrangler is a designer-like solution to cable management. It’s both sexy and easy to use. The base unit is a small mound shape that helps elevate your cable above a table. It stores the magnet that will help stick your included cable firmly to this soft fabric material. Since it has a good amount of weight, the unit could additionally act like a paper weight.

The included Lightning cable is made of a similar color and fabric to the base unit. Silk has magnetized both ends of the cable so you can place either end on the base unit. Now if you want to use your own cord you can. Included in this package are three rubber tips that are magnetized so they will be able to hold a typical USB charger cord.

 

They do have another product that works hand-in-hand with the wrangler. The 2-Port Fast USB Wall Charger will help you charge two products at the same time. Instead of constantly having those two USB cords fall to the floor, you can magnetize them to the wrangler.

With these products, Silk has definitely created a ecosystem that helps organize your life in a stylish way.

Martian mVoice Smartwatch Review

What makes a smartwatch smart? I believe that so far the tech and watch industry have yet to figure this out. There has to be a reason why people eagerly buy smartphones, but not smartwatches. Martian has taken a step back and looked at what we think we want in a smartwatch and simplified it.

What do watches do best? They tell time. The Martian mVoice Smartwatch places this first and foremost. Instead of a large digital screen, you have a large analog watch. The OLED screen is located on the bottom face of the watch. To control it there are a couple of push buttons on the side of the watch. On the other side of the watch you’ll find your USB charge port. The analog watch and OLED screen use their own battery. So if you’re smartwatch battery drains completely, you’ll still be able to tell the time.

With all this tech built into the smartwatch it does not feel heavy, get too hot, or feel too bulky. It fits on your wrist just like a regular watch does. Even though the OLD screen is only 96 x 16 pixels, you’re able to read the screen perfectly.

One feature that I know everyone will enjoy is that you can set your Martian mVoice Smartwatch to have your smartphone beep if you get to far away from it. This way you’ll never lose your smartphone again.

Once you pair the Martian mVoice Smartwatch with your smartphone via bluetooth and download the Amazon Alexa app you’re going to find even more cool features. There are literally over 5,000 skills that Alexa has, which you can activate with the Martian mVoice Smartwatch. You won’t have to take out your smartphone to activate these skills. Keep the smartphone in your pocket and simply use your voice with your Martian mVoice Smartwatch to do the activity. You can use the OLED screen to read text messages or even answer phone calls talking via your smartwatch.

This design seems to make for a lot easier and quicker functionalities than what we’ve seen so far in the smartwatch industry. The Martian mVoice Smartwatch is both a watch and a smartwatch and that’s a good thing.

BeMe D200 Review

Basic earphones are just that, basic. The BeMe D200 earphones are for those in the Apple echosystem who want a more sophisticated way of listening to their favorite songs.

I was shocked when I unboxed the earphones and put them in my ear how quiet the world around me become. Even if you’re not listening to music and simply want to drown out some background noise the BeMe D200 work very well at that.

I plugged the earphones into the iPhone and played some music. It sounded a lot more clear than the standard iPhone earphones. Best of all you won’t need an additional battery to power the active noise cancellation.

The inline remote allows you to quickly adjust the volume, play/pause, answer a call, and adjust ambient noise levels all without touching your iPhone. This remote does add extra weight to the earphones, which I have found causes the earphones to pull the earphones out of my ear. Thankfully a clip is included to attach the cord to your shirt. Also there are four sized ear tips that you can swap on to see which fits into your ear best. Using those two features you should be able to avoid the earphones from falling out.

If you’re an audiophile there’s a beem united app that you can download from the App Store. Here you’ll have 10-band equalizer control and adjust the active noise cancellation.

A carrying pouch is included to help keep your earphones from getting trashed in your purse or backpack.

Michael Bay Runs Off Stage

Definitely the most interesting moment so far at CES 2014. For some reason Michael Bay was having issues with the teleprompter. I’m totally not dissing the guy here cause as we all know it can be nerve wracking saying something in front of a live audience. Still though accidents happen and Michael’s walk of shame off the stage is very amusing. What he was going to say according to his website was “I’m doing a special curved screen experience with Samsung and Transformers 4 footage that will be traveling around the world.”
