New LG Music Flow Wi-Fi Series products coming at CES 2015

lg_music_flow_2015_lineup

There are less than two weeks until CES 2015 begins and LG is already announcing some new hardware. At the event in Las Vegas next month, LG will showcase its new lineup for the Music Flow Wi-Fi Series. The products include a Wi-Fi speaker, sound bars, and a Blu-ray player. Each device supports dual band Wi-Fi (2.4/5GHz). All of them work with the Music Flow app and a multitude of music services. The Music Flow app syncs the content between devices; for example, entering the house after listening to music on headphones will activate the Music Flow speakers or sound bars.

It looks like LG has something on its hands that can go head-to-head with Sonos and others in the wireless audio space.

Hit the break for the full press release.

anker_2nd_gen_astro_e4_13000mah

Battery life is much better than what it once was, but it could always be improved. Until devices can run for days without requiring a charge, external battery packs will have a demand. Anker, the company that produces some of the strongest external battery packs, has three models available at a discount through Amazon. The sizes range from 13000mAh to 20800mAh. Even that smallest capacity is able to charge some of today’s smartphones four times. The largest is enough to at least charge a phone and a tablet twice each. And, unlike many other external battery packs, Anker’s have multiple ports for simultaneous charging.

The following are the external battery packs with the corresponding coupon code:

  • Anker 2nd Gen Astro E4 External Battery Pack with PowerIQ 13000mAh — ANKEREE4 [Amazon]
  • Anker 2nd Gen Astro E5 External Battery Pack with PowerIQ 16000mAh — ANKRPPE5 [Amazon]
  • Anker Astro E6 External Battery Pack with PowerIQ 208000mAh — ANKRCWE6 [Amazon]

What is one of the things we all dread the most? For me, it’s seeing a pop-up that reads, “Your password has expired, please change it.” And each website or device has different criterias, some like only alpha-numeric, some require special characters, while others require at least one capital letter. Oh, the humanity!
