I’m sure we’ve all been on the end of a VoIP call with someone who likes to type loudly while you’re talking to them. It’s rude and it’s annoying, particularly if they’re using a microphone built into a notebook. But a new feature built into Google+ means you’ll never have to hear that sound again during a Hangout.
Google+ now automatically mutes your microphone when it detects that you’re typing, saving other participants from your tap-tap-tapping.
Discovering great headphones from a company that specializes in making bags was surprisng at first, when we reviewed Incase’s Sonic headphones late last year. A month later we were less stunned when we grunted in approval at their Capsule in-ear ‘phones during our budget(ish) canalphone shootout.
This time around we played with a new denim-clad version of the on-the-ear IncaseReflex headphones ($80) — which sit between the $150 over-the-ear Sonic and the canalphone Capsules — and came away with the impression that the Reflex may very well be the best bang-for-buck of the bunch.
