Motorcyclists gain wireless audio cred from Interphone

If you take to the streets on two wheels, you don’t get to listen to the radio. That’s one of the disadvantages of taking a motorbike, but a little gadget could help fix that.

Motorola’s circular 360 smartwatch comes to Aussie wrists October 31

There’s a smartwatch on the wrist of at least one GadgetGuy staffer daily, and that’s proof that we like them, but so far, we’ve only been able to play with rectangular or square watches, and we’d like that to change. Fortunately, Moto’s 360 is ready.

Aldi takes on Motorola with a sub-$300 dual-SIM smartphone

High-speed 4G isn’t everywhere yet, and there are people that just don’t need it, so if you don’t want to spend more than $300 on a phone, where do you turn? Apparently Aldi is one such place.

Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus reviewed

Apple has steered clear of tablet-sized phones for a while now, leaving it to Samsung and other manufacturers, but now Apple is here with a phablet of its own. Is the iPhone 6 Plus the best big phone of the lot?

Ruark dabbles with Bluetooth in a DAB+ radio

One of our pet peeves in modern radios is how the gadgets often only serve one purpose, and that’s the playback of radio. We wish more of them had Bluetooth for streaming, allowing us to play our own music when the radio selections just weren’t good. Fortunately, there’s now an option.
