Nextbit taps Foxconn to build its first smartphone — Earlier this week, mobile software startup Nextbit revealed that it's about to launch its first smartphone, according to . The move comes as no surprise, because it'd be silly for a company to hire Scott Croyle, HTC's former head of design, just to work on some cool continuity software on Android, right?

OnePlus 2 is a $329+ metallic upgrade with a beefed-up camera — Almost exactly 15 months ago, the OnePlus One made its debut as a $299 flagship smartphone to wow the geeks; and it's even been lowered to $249 as of last month. That, of course, is to make way for the company's next act, the OnePlus 2 (we were asked to stick with "2" instead of "Two").

As we sat in OnePlus' funky recreational room, CEO Pete Lau revealed that about 60 to 70 percent of the sales come from overseas, which is a significant change from the 50/50 ratio back in November.

Lumos helmet keeps cyclists safe with automatic brake lights — For cyclists, the road can be a nasty place to be at night, so we're all for technologies that can help draw drivers' attention in order to reduce the number of accidents. The latest of such attempt is the Lumos helmet, which not only comes with turn signal indicators that can be controlled wirelessly, but also packs a brake light that comes on automatically as you slow down.

Shuhei Yoshida on China and why PlayStation can never go Home again — One does not simply get enough of Shuhei Yoshida, the head of Sony PlayStation's Worldwide Studios. So following our nice, long chat with him at E3 (seriously, go read it), we managed to get hold of him again in Hong Kong and picked his brain with more questions about Project Morpheus.

Sony's Shuhei Yoshida reacts to the 'Nintendo PlayStation' — Not long after our last intimate chat with Shuhei Yoshida, the President of Sony Computer Entertainment's Worldwide Studios at E3, a Redditor managed to dig up a prototype of the never-released " Nintendo PlayStation" that eventually led to the birth of Sony's very own gaming console.

小米之家香港站開幕啦,提供配件和一小時維修服務 — 在香港,小米的手機和配件隨處可見,不過維修站點卻只有一家,所以售後服務一直都是痛點。為了解決這個問題,小米終於在香港旺角的荷里活商業中心 20 樓開設了全球第二十個小米之家(咦,魅族就在樓下),也是首個在大陸以外的小米之家。小米承諾會提供一小時特快維修服務,不過前提是你必須先在官網預約,還有水貨和香港沒賣的

Get tailor-made headphone audio with this little device — Audio snobs may already be boasting their high-end audio equipment, be it a special chip inside their smartphones or portable headphone amps, but these are no good if your ears have slight hearing loss. Even if you deem your ears to be pitch perfect, chances are your left and right ears have different sensitivity to certain frequencies.
