Today we've got a new accessory — Moto Stream — which connects directly to your stereo and lets adds that same Heist functionality.

So while you may not be able to get your hands on a OnePlus One smartphone just yet due to tight supplies, the company is now showing off a line of branded accessories if you're interested.

Sonos is meant to stream your music wirelessly to speakers throughout your house, and now it can help you do the same for less. The company is now running a promotion wherein you can purchase any Sonos product (excepting the all-connecting Bridge) and get a free six month trial of Google Play Music All Access thrown in on top of that. That's not a bad deal, though you'll be shelling out a minimum of $200 for a Sonos Play:1 speaker to be able to take advantage.
But you can't go hunting around for these weird little inserts, these "blue wireless receiver cards" that fit between the battery and the battery cover. It's basically just a Qi coil, controller board and contacts for phone — a surprisingly simple answer for just a few dollars.

LG improves upon last years QuickWindow case with a circle and better functionality
Much like its predecessor, the G2, LG's new top-of-the-line G3 comes with a special, windowed case. This time out they're calling it the QuickCircle and functionality is certainly improved in this years model. As the name implies, the window this time around has become a circle, and it's a circle that has its uses.
As before you get a variety of different clock faces to display when you close the case, some analog, some digital, and there's still the option to have the current weather conditions, too. You can still activate the window by double-tapping on the display and a swipe across in this years model opens up a whole host of things to do.
Looking for the best wireless charging options for your Galaxy S5? We can help.
When it comes to the Samsung Galaxy S5, wireless charging is where it's at. There are a few reasons for that. The first is convenience. Because of its IP67 rating for water resistance, the Galaxy S5 has a flap covering the microUSB port. You have to remove that flap any time you want to charge your phone. The second reason also is for convenience. It's simply easier to plop your Galaxy S5 down on a Qi-compatible charging pad.
There is a trade-off, of course. One is that your phone won't charge quite as quickly. The other is that the Qi-enabled wireless backs for the Galaxy S5 make the phone a little thicker.
Call me old fashioned, but the words “audio” and “Bluetooth” together tend to scare me. I’m a child of a time where Bluetooth audio was a fantastic concept that failed to produce passable results. I’ve had one too many bad experiences with loss of fidelity, cut out audio, and interference – not the most pleasant experiences when you’re trying to listen to music.
