Boss Katana-Air is a compact wireless guitar amp you can use anywhere

Image
Guitar players wanting to liberate themselves from long instrument cables that tether them to a spot on stage (or clutter up their practice space) usually have to buy a whole system with transmitters and receivers and such. Now, however, Boss has just announced a new compact stereo practice amp called the Katana-Air with wireless built right in, available now for $399.99.Looking like a cross between a guitar amplifier and a boombox, this battery-powered device has a built-in low-latency wireless transmitter that plugs into your guitar. Like the Fender Mustang GT, you can use this Boss amp as a Bluetooth speaker, as well, which makes playing along to your favorite songs easy. The Katana-Air has five different amp models, including Acoustic, Clean, Crunch, Lean and Brown. It also carries more than 50 Boss effects onboard, with six memory slots to store your favorite amp modeling and effects. You use the Boss Tone Studio app to manage the onboard sounds and get even more presets online.B…

Acer adds a free Echo Dot to its Alexa-equipped laptops

Image
If you've been eyeing Acer's Alexa-enabled laptops, you may want to check out the company's deals on Amazon for Prime subscribers. The manufacturer has slashed $50 off all available models' prices, which really isn't that much -- good thing Acer is also giving out a free Echo Dot speaker with every purchase. These laptops come built-in with Amazon's voice assistant, and you can ask it questions and access skills like you would on one of the tech giant's Echo speakers. The available models include some of the first Alexa-equipped laptops on the market, including convertibles like the Acer Nitro 5 Spin made for students and casual gamers. There's also the Spin 5, another convertible that has various configurations, including different display sizes and processors. Of course, some models from Acer's Aspire series are also in the list if you're looking something more affordable than the convertibles, which are priced between $800 to $1,000. These de…

Alexa voice control arrives for select DirecTV set-top boxes

Image
If you have DirecTV and you're fed up of having to use an old-fashioned remote to get to the content you want to watch, starting today, you can just holler at Amazon's Alexa voice assistant to do the work for you. Alexa is now compatible with the Genie HR44, HR54, Genie 2 and Genie Mini set-top boxes.You'll first need to connect your DirecTV account to Alexa, which you can control with (for instance) an Echo, a mobile app or the new Fire TV Cube. It's then a matter of using your voice to play, rewind and record shows, or change the channel. You can search for what you want to watch too, such as movies starring a certain actor. It's a far cry from the old days of voice control, before remotes existed, when you would just ask a child to get up and switch the channel on the TV itself.

Apple announces $300 million fund for clean energy in China

Image
Tonight Apple announced a new partnership that will connect its suppliers in China to renewable energy sources. This isn't its first push to increase the use of clean energy in the country that has been called the world's most polluting, but it does increase the scale. Along with ten suppliers, the company will jointly invest "nearly $300 million" over the next four years in to the China Clean Energy Fund.The fund itself will be run by European asset management company DWS Group, with a plan to "give its participants the advantage of greater purchasing power and the ability to attain more attractive and diverse clean energy solutions." That's because even as clean energy project increase, Apple said that smaller companies may not have access to them. Just a few months ago Apple said that it is entirely powered by clean energy (when you include renewable energy certificates it has purchased to cover about 34 percent of its usage), and by 2020 it will, al…

You can now use Alexa to control your DirecTV set-top box

Image
Amazon first announced an update to its Alexa Video Skill API back in March that would make it easier for set-top box makers to add DVR and playback controls via voice, but it's taken a little while for its initial partners to enable the feature. TiVo added it to select devices back in May, and now DirecTV is joining the club with an announcement today that its Genie HR44 DVR, among other DirecTV set-top boxes, finally supports Alexa. With the update, you should be able to use your voice to ask an Alexa-enabled Echo device to record TV shows, change channels, and perform other playback functions for your DirecTV set-top box. Commands like, "Hey Alexa, record that show," can be used for specific programs, and you can also specify for...Continue reading…

'Drive' director's free cult-movie streaming service enters beta

Image
Director Nicolas Winding Refn's (Drive) movie streaming service has officially entered its beta test. If you signed up for updates when it was announced last October, you should see the byNWR invite in your inbox this week, if not today. The debut theme is "Regional Renegades," and features three exploitation films: The Nest of the Cuckoo Birds, Hot Thrills and Warm Chills and Shanty Tramp. Previously, Refn promisedThe Burning Hell would join, but it didn't make the cut for one reason or another. Regional Renegades was curated by the director along with journalist and Neil Young biographer Jimmy McDonough.If you were worried that Refn would skimp just because the service was free, well, based on this first edition, those fears were unfounded. Each film has a smattering of essays, photos and videos to read, look at and watch. Again, all tied in some way to the movies on offer.Video quality looks great too, based on a few minutes with The Nest of the Cuckoo Birds. It&…

Uber lets riders pay with Venmo

Image
Uber riders in the US can now pay for their rides with Venmo. Starting today, users will see a "Pay With Venmo" option next to one for Apple Pay. This could make it easier for anyone who prefers not to link their financial informaiton to the ridesharing company, especially temporary users. Of course, it'll also benefit the lazier folks among us who just end up sending cash to their friends for ordering them a ride."There have been 6 million transactions inside of Venmo in the last year alone that were discussing Uber," BIll Ready, COO of the Venmo parent company PayPal Holdings, told Bloomberg.Uber is now the largest retailer to accept Venmo payments, according to Bloomberg. The service introduced 'Pay with Venmo' last fall, which enabled retailers to let customers make purchases with the feature, though that shifts transaction fees to the company.Source: Bloomberg

The latest Spike Lee Joint is all about Uber drivers

Image
Uber apparently has a lot of money to fight an ongoing public relations battle. The beleaguered ride-sharing company has enlisted... wait, what? Spike Lee has directed and produced five new short films (also called commercials) for Uber called, wait for it, Da Republic of Brooklyn.The five films are subtitled for Uber drivers in Brooklyn (that Uber paid for their participation), including an aspiring actress, and art restorationist, a serial entrepreneur, a "passionate carer" for animals and a hairstylist (and mother of two). The auteur apparently chose the featured folks by himself out of thousands of Uber non-employees in the area."I was attracted to this project because I know a lot of people who drive on the Uber platform and it gives them the flexibility they need to pursue their dreams," wrote Lee in a statement. "That's how we do it in Brooklyn – that's the Brooklyn hustle."Source: Uber
