I have seen the future of wearable payments, and it is magical

51

Disney World does mobile payments right.

I went to Walt Disney World at the beginning of December. It was absolutely glorious. And each day, while in the parks, I did not take a wallet with me. I stuck my driver's license in the back of my phone's clear case, and that was all I brought. And while I bought tons of keepsakes and food, my credit cards stayed safely in my hotel room.

Did I use Android Pay? Samsung Pay? Apple Pay? No; I used something even better.

Kinivo BTH260 Bluetooth Headphones review

34

If you were to pick me out of a crowd, I'd be the girl with the headphones.

I hate noise. Music keeps me sane. This is why the most important device leaving the house isn't my phone, it is my headphones. My primary headphones are worn around my neck every day, they are one of the features coworkers and cohorts recognize me most by (after my hat, of course). As a very particular person, finding a good pair of headphones is a bit like finding a magic wand, except instead of just going to Ollivander's, you're looking quite literally in every shop you can find for something that fits your life, your lifestyle, and your wallet.

Lucky for me, the Kinivo BTH260 Bluetooth Headphones fit all three.

Sennheiser PXC 550: Better than Bose?

17

The Sennheiser PXC 550 can keep your ears closed off to the rest of the world. A must-have for those of you with long holiday travels and long holidays with family. They're good-looking and long-lasting, just like everything you'd want in a ... pair of noise-reducing headphones. With the added luxury of a touch-sensitive panel to help control what you're listening to, you'll really drive your ... headphones wild.

MrMobile, in his infinite wisdom, will help you decide if these cans are what your ears have been looking (listening?) for, or if you're better off with the Bose QC35. Take Michael Fisher's advice, and you'll be ready for all that December has to offer.

Stay social, my friends

Best Streaming TV Services For Cord-cutters

89

Want to join the cord-cutting revolution? Here are some services you ought to read up on!

Cutting the cord is becoming more commonplace every year. While popular streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu have done an excellent job of leading the charge, some people would love to cut the cord but still enjoy the same TV programming their cable provided provides them.

Streaming TV Services are a blend of traditional cable and streaming services that allow you to access not only on-demand but also live TV channels, so you don't have to miss out on your favorite shows.

Playstation Vue

Available for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 consoles across the U.S., PlayStation Vue lets you access some of the most popular networks on television for a monthly subscription fee.

They have four different subscription packages, that range from $39.99 to 79.99 a month, meaning you should be able to find the package that is right for you. All of the packages come with a slew of channels such as AMC, Cartoon Network, CNN, Discovery, Disney Channel, E!, ESPN, ESPN2, Food Network, Fox News Channel, Syfy, USA, and more! Plus, you can add individual premium channels to any package for an additional monthly cost.

PlayStation Vue also allows you to record live TV so you can watch it later, just like a DVR, and even has an explore mode to give you suggestions of what to watch when you can't decide.

See at PlayStation

Sling TV

The first thing that may excite you about Sling TV is its price of $20 per month, but there is more to life than just its price tag.

Sling TV is accessible through an app for Android, iOS, Roku, and Apple TV, so chances are you don't have to invest in a device to enjoy the service. Plus it comes with some great channels which include AMC, TNT, ESPN, CNN, History, HDTV and the Disney Channel, so you're bound to find something to keep you entertained.

Sling TV does have a few drawbacks. There is no DVR, so most channels don't let you control playback, and right now you can only stream to three screens at a time, so if you are a family with lots of TVs on all the time that could be problematic.

See at Sling TV

DirectTV NOW

DirectTV NOW certainly sounds like an impressive deal; you get 100 channels for $35 a month, which is the most channels for the lowest price currently on the market for service like this.

You can even get local shows depending on where you live. Certain regional sports programs, as well as regional divisions of networks like NBC, are available in the major cities plus you can add premium channel like HBO and Showtime for only an extra $5 per month.

Spotify now lets you control Sonos speakers from its app

5

Stream to your Sonos speakers straight from Spotify.

Premium Spotify users can now stream music to Sonos speakers directly from within the Spotify app using Spotify Connect. Spotify has teamed up with Sonos to better integrate the popular music service with the high-end wireless speakers, and the result looks pretty damn cool. In essence, if you have Sonos speakers set up throughout your home and rely on Spotify Premium for your music, you can control both your Spotify music and your Sonos speakers all through the Spotify app. The announcement comes after a brief beta testing period.

Check out the video Sonos released to announce the new feature:

Now you can quickly tap to cast the music playing in your headphones to your Sonos speakers when you arrive home — all within the Spotify app — so you never skip a beat. You're also able to group and ungroup Sonos speakers as needed right from the Spotify app, so you can bring your whole home to life with music or keep it all contained to one room on the fly.

It's all apart of the new integration between the Sonos and Spotify apps, which actually goes both ways. so you can start your playlist in the Spotify app, then switch over and control everything from the Sonos app, if you so prefer. If you've got Spotify Premium and some Sonos speakers set up around your home, make sure to keep an eye out for these new features in the Spotify app.
