When the Moto 360 first launched, it was only available in a few colors. If you didn’t want anything flashy, the stainless steel and black finishes were okay, but I’m sure many of you have been waiting on something that sticks out a bit more. It looks like Amazon has finally listed a few new color options and bands for the Moto 360, so the wait is almost over.
Sony has today launched its much-anticipated, eagerly-awaited PS4 Remote Play application, which is, for those unaware, a revolutionary new feature that gives users the ability to stream games from their PS4 console to an Xperia Z3 smartphone or tablet.
The Nexus Player pre-order went through a bit of a rough start, but now it is up and available to order, and as of today so is the Nexus Player’s accompanying game controller. A first for Google, the Nexus Player’s gamepad looks like a serious controller with a button arrangement not unlike the Sony’s DualShock controllers. The buttons include 2 analog sticks, a 4-button D-pad and 8 action buttons featuring two pressure-sensitive triggers.
It was only a matter of time before the now Google-owned Nest Learning Thermostat (and smoke detector) became even more integrated in the “Internet of things.”
Now, the device can be paired and controlled with other home automation products, including Pebble smartwatches (to check and control the temperature in your home), ivee (voice-controlled home manager) and Life360 (an app used to check the location of family and friends and can adjust the temperature when people enter and leave your home).
WallyHome, a device that checks for water leaks, is also on the list of compatible products, as is Rachio, which controls sprinklers in the house for fires. Expect more and more products to become compatible with Nest, as Google is looking for more partners to expand the capabilities of its device.
While the Note 4 is being heralded as a premium device with a new premium design, one of the things that hasn’t been upgraded to a new premium feel is the S-pen. It still feels like the Samsung of old with its plastic base and its fake metal accents. Well, International, watch, jewelry, and writing instruments maker Montblanc has those wishing to take the S-pen to the next level covered.
We don’t know what Pebble has up their sleeve for their next smartwatch, but the company says the new watch (which should be out early next year) is going to be “more everything.” While that’s an incredibly vague PR statement that tells us absolutely nothing about the watch, they did clarify a little later.
The new Pebble smartwatch is aiming to be much more customizable than what you see today. Customers should expect more control over their watch over just metal or plastic, and the options should vary beyond just swappable wristbands. The big new development in tech is modular components, so there’s a possibility that we may some Project Ara-esque elements to the new Pebble smartwatch.
The release of the Nexus 9 is just around the corner, and preorders are already live on the Play Store. Also on the Play Store are pre-orders for the official “Magic Cover” and the very attractive (but over-priced) keyboard case. For those who use Amazon as their retailer of choice, both of these cases can now be pre-ordered from the popular website. Both cases are priced identically as they are on the Play Store ($39.99 for the Magic Cover and $129.99 for the keyboard). If you’ve been waiting for them to hit Amazon, hit the source links below and order today.

Back in September, Sony announced PS4 Remote Play — a revolutionary new feature which equips users with the facility to take a PlayStation 4 controller and stream games from their console to an Xperia smartphone or tablet that supports the service.
At the time, the Japanese company revealed that the application would be an exclusive to the Xperia Z3, Z3 Compact and Z3 Tablet Compact. But now, thanks to a blunder on the ‘Xperia Lounge’ app, it appears that Remote Play will be coming to the Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z2 Tablet after all, when the app launches next month.
Hit the break below to see the slip-up in all its glory.
Samsung’s Gear S is going to be the first popular SmartWatch with a 3G connection, so there are a lot of questions to be answered about how the device will be used practically as a separate device on a wireless plan.
