Sennheiser RS 175
March 25, 2015
The home theater-focused wireless headphones categoryis, compared withthe larger realm of Bluetooth headphones, a niche market. Sennheiser continues to fill it with quality offerings, however. Introduced at CES, the $279.95 Sennheiser RS 175 is a powerful set of wireless headphones, with a dedicated recharging stand and transmitter that accepts both analog and digital inputs from your home theater components. It's strictly for home use, using its own modulating transmitter instead of Bluetooth or another mobile-friendly standard. The sound signature is very sculpted, with bright highs and rich lows, as well asthe ability to add more bass. There's also a Surround effect mode for movies and television. Purists seeking flat-response audio should steer clear, but if you love rumbling bass with your movies and music, the RS 175 is a solid wireless-but not portable-option to consider. If you want quality wireless audio on the go, theHarman Kardon BT is an excellent Bluetooth choice.

2015 Ford Edge
March 24, 2015
When the Ford Edge was introduced in 2007, it hit the market just in time to take advantage of the burgeoning crossover craze. But due to a surplus of new competitors and an aging design, sales of the Edge were down last year while the overall CUV category was up. For the all-new 2015 model, the Edge receives a more refined exterior and interior, revised drivetrains that increase both performance and fuel efficiency, and an extra helping of driver assist systems. Unfortunately, the car'sin-dash tech in the form of MyFord Touch is carried over. How Much? The 2015 Ford Edgestarts at $28,100 for the base-level SE trim. It goes up to $31,500 for the SEL, $35,600 for the Titanium, and $38,100 for the flagship Sport model. We tested the Titanium AWD with a base price of $37,095, and the addition of the $5,645 Equipment Group 302A option bumped the final sticker to $42,940.

Why Smart Bulbs Are Quietly Becoming the Most Exciting Thing in Tech
March 23, 2015
Over the last two years, I've received various press releases from light bulb companies hyping their latest bulb to be hooked in to the Internet of Things (or IoT). Initially, I was underwhelmed by this phenomenon since most of them appeared to be little more than app-controlled lights that would allow you to switch them on or off or alter the hue from your smartphone. If you wanted to stretch the definition of smart products to include anything with a digital connection, then I guess these were indeed part of the IoT or-as they've come to be branded-"smart bulbs." However, I always thought there had to be more to this category. I felt they could be smarter.
