Back at PAX East I met up with the guys at Plantronics, and they gave me a set of light and sporty Backbeat GO stereo Bluetooth headphones to try out. They adopt the ultra-light look that seems to be all the rage in stereo Bluetooth accessories. As if the form factor wasn't enough to entice music-loving busybodies, the Plantronics Bluetooth guy told me that there's a light oleophobic coating on the headphones to fend off sweat.
The Loewe AirSpeaker has been on the market for a little while now, but at the recent IFA Global Press Conference in Sardinia, the German manufacturer was on hand to show it off.

HAPIfork, the smart dining utensil we first saw at CES 2013 has finally found its way to Kickstarter and is now available for your backing pleasure. The concept is simple enough: HAPIfork includes some clever tech that measures how fast you're shoveling food into your mouth, and if it determines you're eating too fast, the handle vibrates to remind you to slow down and better enjoy meal. Since eating too fast has been correlated with weight gain -- essentially because the brain can't tell you your stomach is full fast enough -- slowing down can lead to better health and weight control. According to their Kickstarter page:
I love the Satechi Smart LED Desk Lamp. It's beautiful. It's bright. It's got easy-to-use touch controls. And what's more, it's got a handy USB port so you can plug in your 30-pin Dock or Lightning cable and charge your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad right from the lamp.
You can pivot the Satechi Smart LED Desk Lamp to several different angle, though sadly not all the way upwards. There are also several different modes, including reading mode, study mode, relaxation mode, and bedtime mode.
