We've become accustomed to cell phones as noisy, rectangular devices filled with applications that are designed to assist us – but often distract us – in our daily lives. California-based startup Mohohm is looking to buck the trend with Runcible, a round device that doesn't use apps and doesn't beep or vibrate to alert users.
Matchstick is a new streaming dongle aiming to compete directly with Google’s low-cost Chromecast
product. The new stick plugs into your TV or HD monitor’s HDMI port and lets you stream or mirror content to it, just like Google’s device. Things are a little different behind the scenes however, with the Matchstick running Mozilla's Firefox OS
Following its planned move into the smartphone arena
, Mozilla has teamed up with Panasonic to bring the Firefox OS to next-generation smart TVs. The companies say that the open platform, which is based on HTML5 and other web technologies, will give TV viewers more personalized and optimized access to web and broadcasting content and services through the internet.
Mozilla, the company behind the popular Firefox browser, has announced the availability of two developer preview phones for its upcoming Firefox OS platform. The devices are designed to get developers better acquainted with the OS, which faces an uphill battle against the dominant iOS and Android platforms.
