    Hands On With The Moto G - One Cool Thing

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it. That seems to be Motorola's strategy with its best selling device in the Moto series, the Moto G, as a new version just hit stores. The new G now sports a 5-inch display, which results in noticeably bigger but only slightly heavier phone than the original G, which has a 4.5 inch display.

    Hands On With Withings Aura - One Cool Thing

    [video=youtube_share;5BbePXXgKzw]http://youtu.be/5BbePXXgKzw[/video]

    The Withings Aura has three parts: a Bedside Device, a pretty big sensor that goes under your mattress, and the Withings Healthmate mobile app. When it's time to go to bed, you can set an alarm clock in the app, and rather than set an exact time to wake up, you can set it to a window, like, 6:30 a.m. plus or minus 10 minutes. The alarm goes off anytime in that window when you're at an ideal moment in your sleep cycle, so that it doesn't try to knock you out of a deep sleep.

    Most HDTVs are LCDs, or liquid crystal displays. A dwindling few are plasma screens. The curved 55EC9300 is something completely different: an organic light-emitting diode, or OLED display.

    The two new iPhones have a lot in common. They're bigger, slimmer, and more rounded than the iPhone 4 or 5 series. Both phones should show more real estate than the older iPhones, once apps are coded for them. For now, though, they just show everything bigger.

    This is a desktop power strip with a portable battery that pops right out, so you'll never forget to charge it. The Pickup Power comes in two different configurations: a $129.99 model, which has a 6,000mAh battery with two USB ports, and a $99.99 version with a 4,000mAh battery and one USB port.

    This big, square smartphone is going to be one of the most divisive devices of the year. BlackBerry says it's for "working wide." You can see a lot of Word documents, spreadsheets or Web pages on this 4.5 inch, 1440 by 1400 LCD screen, and you can tap out emails super-quickly with the combination physical-virtual keyboard.

    This is definitely a cool product, even among 3D printers. This model, geared to product designers and other professionals, prints gorgeous objects at high resolution, and uses a different approach to printing than the other 3D printers we’ve looked at.

    While there are plenty of inexpensive Chromebooks on the market, the Chromebook 13 is the first with Nvidia's Tegra K1 processor. The new processor offers a couple features that past Chromebooks have not, promising better graphics processing than any other Chromebook we've seen, and offering support for WebGL and Unity 5 for 3D capability.

    One Cool Thing - New 27" iMac

    [video=youtube_share;QiUSSlS2CDU]http://youtu.be/QiUSSlS2CDU[/video]

    Published on Oct 20, 2014
    Most of the time we feature something small on One Cool Thing, but today it's something big. Really big. Apple's new iMac 27-inch may look quite familiar when it's turned off, but once you power it up, the sharpness of the new Retina 5K display is instantly apparent. Even though we’re shooting here in 1080p HD, you can't fathom the improvement in quality until you're in front of the new iMac. The 27-inch screen with 5,120-by-2,880 resolution blows past 4K (3,840-by-2,160), packing an unheard-of 14.7 million pixels

    One Cool Thing iPad Air 2

    The iPad Air 2 is the thinnest, lightest, and fastest Apple tablet yet. As you can see here, at 6.1 millimeters, it’s noticeably thinner than the last iPad air, and it’s under a pound. The Air 2 upgraded its rear camera from 5 to 8 megapixels and added a touch ID sensor on the front, but the most important changes are inside.

    The iPad Mini 3 looks and acts a lot like last year’s iPad Mini 2, which costs $100 less. So what’s the difference? We found three differences between Apple’s two small tablets.

    This is the first Sony smartphone to land on Verizon Wireless in three years, and luckily, it's a good one. For the standard going rate of $200 with a two-year contract, the Z3v offers an attractive waterproof design, excellent performance, and a great camera. It stands up well to competitors like the Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One (M8), even if it's not exactly the flashiest phone.

    Amazon Fire HDX 8.9 High End Media Tablet - One Cool Thing

    Amazon's latest high end media tablet is the best thing we've seen recently for music and video playback on the go, especially if you bought your media from Amazon. It's slim and light, with a nice matte back, and a sharp 2560 by 1600 screen. What makes this tablet so great for media, though, are the powerful speakers and easy TV output with an HDMI adapter like this one.

    This Time around, we've got the Asus Republic of Gamers G20. It doesn't look like the usual gaming tower desktop, and that's on purpose. Its compact size is similar to a gaming console or some other piece of home theatre equipment.

    The Fitbit Charge is the latest activity tracker from Fitbit. At $129, the Charge is a wonderfully sleek and slim wristband that measures your steps, miles, calories burned, sleep, plus other exercise and activities, but it's not super sophisticated consider what else is on the market.
