Android Gadgets of the Week! [#1]

First, we have the SanDisk Extreme USB 3.0 flash drive. This is one of the fastest USB flash drives you can buy for the money you spend, currently the 64GB version is being sold for just $38 on Amazon. In real world usage, I found I get about 190Mb/s for read and 150Mb/s for write to my PC. Overall, that’s really good for a USB 3.0 flash drive that cost me less than $40. If you use tend to transfer a lot of data using USB flash drive, this may definitely one of the best deals right now. Of course, if you have an OTG cable, you can hook it up to your Android device, which I got pretty decent speeds of 38Mb/s for read and 40Mb/s for write.

Amazon Echo Review & Voice Controlled Home Automation HOWTO w/ WeMo!

When I first got the Amazon Echo, it was a pretty cool device that you could talk to when you are bored but there were limits to the device as I was used to doing complex things with my Google Now already.  Of course, I also find playing music rather convenient, especially when I am doing dishes, I can turn on music without bothering to dry my hands, I really like that.  But at the price of near $200, is this gadget worth it?

Wireless Charging Qi USB Power Bank!

Couple weeks back I was looking for a product that is truly wireless, a wireless Qi charger that doesn’t require wires.  Well, my search didn’t go too well until I saw one of Flossy Carter’s YouTube videos, where he was testing the Galaxy S6 cases and finding out if thicker cases affected the wireless charging.  In that video, he was using one of these truly wireless Qi USB power banks!
