Logitech has just announced a pretty big purchase: Jaybird, the wireless audio manufacturer. It’s a little surprising considering Logitech mostly handles computer peripherals, but with the trend of headphones moving towards wireless devices, it’s an acquisition that makes sense.
USB Type-C is great! It’s reversible, charges quickly, and it’s fast on data transfers. It’s quickly becoming the standard for tons of devices, including smartphones, tablets, and laptops, which we’ve already seen on Nexus devices, the HTC 10, LG G5, and several other phones. But on the other side of things, bad USB Type-C cables can also destroy your device.
One of the more unique items HTC brought to market with past flagship smartphones was the Dot View case that permitted some limited access to phone notifications with the case closed.

Coachella’s organizers have partnered with Square to bring Android Pay-enabled readers to the event, meaning music lovers can spend with their smartphones.
Samsung’s Gear 360 was unveiled alongside the Galaxy S7 this year, but without a solid release date or price tag. We still don’t have the release date pinned down outside of Q2 2016, but the price for the advanced camera has shown up ahead of launch.
