A quick look at the Logitech Keys-To-Go ultraportable keyboard

Logitech Keys-To-Go ultraportable keyboard

Keyboards haven't yet outlived their usefulness, and Logitech continues to make some of the best for adding a little something extra to your tablet. Here we've got a quick look at the Logitech Keys-To-Go. It's a ridiculously thin keyboard for tablets. The one we have here is technically marketed for Android and Windows — it's got a telltale Windows key as well — but it'll work with iOS, too. (If you just have to have one sans Windows key, there's a more iOS-friendly one available, too.)

There are a couple ways to use this keyboard. The sexier of the two is to already have the tablet propped up somehow (perhaps with Logitech's own propper-upper), and then have the keyboard away from the display in a more comfortable manner. We'll call that "future mode." But given the resolution of tablets these days, you might want it closer. So there's a removable plastic clip that lets you stand the tablet up in the usual position right behind the keyboard.

Luckily, there are some great screen protectors for the Galaxy S6 available that will keep your worries at bay and your display clear of imperfections. Check out some of our favorite picks after the break.

Cruising with the iOttie Active Edge Bike and Bar Mount


Bike mounts for your phone are useful, as long they're sturdy and don't block necessary ports and buttons.

Admittedly, it's been a few weeks since I'd taken my Trek Madone out for a lengthy spin. So, once we received the iOttie Active Edge Bike and Bar Mount in the store, that gave me a reason to test the waters on an accessory that I'd never used before. Now I'm wondering how I ever rode without one.

Kwikset Kevo — an almost awesome smart lock

Kwikset Kevo

It's not what you'd call a complete thought, but Kwikset's Kevo smart lock introduces some unique ideas into the smart lock ecosystem.

The folks at Kwikset have been trying to make locks and deadbolts smarter for a while now, and as a result their products are usually considered some of the best for people looking to add some smarts to their home. Their latest smart lock, the Kevo deadbolt, is an attempt to take what they've learned so far and make the act of locking and unlocking the door more natural. You basically make your smartphone the key, and assuming you keep that key in your pocket you need only reach out and touch the lock when walking up to the door to unlock it. It's simple, reasonably user-friendly, and Kwikset's software for Kevo extends this functionality in a way that makes a lot of sense.

To accomplish this, Kwikset basically walked away from all of the things that made their existing smart locks functional and user-friendly.

This, as well as some painfully absent device support, is where things start to go wrong.

Best wireless chargers under $20


Don't be put off by expensive wireless chargers. There are affordable options that do exactly the same thing.

It wasn't uncommon to see ridiculous price tags on the newest OEM wireless chargers, especially after flagship devices started packing Qi-compatibility. Shortly after, however, aftermarket manufacturers stepped in — providing essentially the same convenient chargers — but at a fraction of the price.

This brief list of affordable wireless chargers will give you the sweet freedom from cables that most of us desire without breaking the bank.

VR for G3 — Google Cardboard for LG folk

VR for G3

LG's first step into mobile VR doesn't stray far from the current offerings, but G3 owners will still want one of these ASAP.

While the world of virtual reality gaming is heating up at an unprecedented pace, due in no small part to massive contributions from Samsung in Oculus Rift and HTC in Steam VR, there's a whole different kind of VR development happening in mobile. Games are a part of it, but not nearly to the scale of desktop-class systems. Instead, mobile VR is looking for ways to expand upon entertainment consumption. Samsung wants to put you in the middle of a live concert while you sit on your couch, while Google chooses to open up their platform to every idea — including a deep focus on inviting kids to the party.

Google Cardboard is an incredibly cool idea that grows in functionality every day, but if you've tried to stick a recent LG phone inside of these enclosures you might have noticed a slight design conflict. To resolve this, as well as test the waters for their own VR interests, LG has released VR for G3 as a free accessory to anyone who buys one of these phones from select retailers.

The best cases for the Moto X (2014)

It's dangerous to go alone. You better cover up.

Finding the right case for your Moto X can be tricky.

There may be a few reasons for this. First, the first Moto X was the first true Motorola flagship in a few years and casemakers weren't quite sure it'd do well enough to warrant making a case for it. Second, because of Moto Maker's customization of the phones, casemakers might have feared that users would forgo cases that would hide their design.

This year, things are different. The Moto X (2014) isn't an unknown. The Moto X (2014) is a phone people are starting to recognize. It is a phone that many are turning to in lieu of a Nexus they feel is simply too big. It has been here for months, and yet, compared to phones like Samsung's Galaxy line, case selection can be a little sparse.

Here are the best of the bunch.
