    As much as Samsung wants you to buy its new Galaxy S5, not everyone is sold on buying a new Galaxy. The company has fitted its new flagship with all the health sensors it could, like a heart rate monitor, but what if you want to do this without having to buy a new phone? Well, there are some wearable solutions out there, but a company named Azoi just came out of the blue with an iPhone case that pretends to compete. The new "Wello" case is designed to track your blood pressure, heart rate, temperature, blood oxygen levels, receive ECG waves and even track the health of your lungs. The ...

    I saw something the other day that made me sad. Very sad. It was a slim, sleek, ultra light Samsung GSIII, with a freaking BMW strapped to it. Ok, so it wasn't a BMW, but it was a case that looked like a snow tire wrapped around the phone. The back of the phone was literally 1 cm off the table top. Dang, it was ugly. And the sheer size of these monstrosities. Manufacturers put so much money into making their phones thin and light, and then we consumers take that design a chuck it right out the window for the cheapest piece of rubber we can pull off a shelf at a mall kiosk. It's a sickness ...
