    We were doing some speculating on last week's episode of the Pocketnow Live, and, as tends to happen, we got to talking about the future. Not the distant future, where embedded transceivers and wearable gadgets have replaced the smartphone, but some time before that. An era close to our own, with smartphones in nearly every pocket and more connectivity than ever, but with an important catch: this hypothetical world features connectivity without cables. Signal without strings. Phones without ports. The idea is amazing. So amazing I can't claim credit for it. Sure, other publications have ...

    The Pocketnow Weekly podcast is a labor of love for those of us who routinely grace its silvery sound waves. It takes a lot of effort and time to put the Weekly on the feeds every seven days, and we're pretty proud of the listenership we've accrued since re-launching our podcast presence lo those many months ago. Since that reboot, the podcast has grown in scope and in refinement: we've added such luxuries as topic lists, time codes with jump points, and a rotating cast of co-hosts - but we've never tweaked the YouTube presence of the Weekly. For eight months, listeners taking in our ...

    Wireless charging may finally have a shot at going mainstream in 2013, and we've recently seen companies like Samsung begin to more publicly embrace the technology with the creation of their own wireless chargers. The latest one to be announced comes to us from LG, and it is one tiny little thing – LG calls it the smallest in the world. LG's model WCP-300 looks like a flattened hockey puck; imagine taking the comparatively bulky Nexus 4 charger and just chopping off the bottom. You're left with a charger that looks more like a coaster than anything else, and should fit in right at home ...

    At long last, the official Wireless Charger for the Google Nexus 4 hit the Play Store for a cool $60 last Monday. For a cool $59.99, plus tax and shipping, the official charger isn't exactly cheap, but neither is any other wireless charger. This one comes with a premium feel, solid build and, most importantly, Nexus branding. A unit landed on my doorstep late last week and I immediately stopped what I was doing to tear into the packaging and see what all the hubbub was about. Having only two functions, charging and propping up the device, there aren't a lot of tricks in this product's bag. ...
