Wireless charging is a convenient technology, allowing users to charge their smart devices without worrying about cables.

The leather-back options for the LG G4

LG's flagship smartphones don't have the marketing clout of rivals from Apple and Samsung (and apparently LG also lags behind in secrecy, as the new LG G4 was leaked from here to Timbuktu before today's announcement).

With the recent rise of drones, this has come to include getting eyes up into the sky to give some first responders an aerial perspective. The latest move to enhance search and rescue efforts comes from Lockheed Martin, which will team up with non-profit Project Lifesaver to help locate people with cognitive disorders that wander away from their home.  Read More
