Sprint and T-Mobile could be rethinking a possible, according to sources close to the two companies who have been speaking to The Wall Street Journal. SoftBank CEO Masayoshi Son is reportedly interested in the deal as well — but not if it is unlikely to be approved.
It has the technological sophistication of a sonic screwdriver. Its design elements look as if pulled straight out of another dimension. And there may not be another set of headphones on this planet — or any other — baked with as many ingredients as the Parrot Zik.
But we were curious — would all this tech work? And how would the Ziks sound? So we poked them with a stick, and here’s what we discovered. Allons-y!

You can’t get Altec Lansing’s new The Jacket iMW455 Bluetooth speaker/speakerphone from anyone other than Verizon, which explains the red and black skins the Jacket comes with.
Don’t like red or black? No problem — because, like a moulting lobster, The Jacket’s special trick is its ability to swap skins. The speaker comes with the two free skins, with more colors available for a price — though we’re not yet sure which colors or how much.
It’s been a long time coming, but the waterproof, shockproof, modular LifeProof phone cases has evolved from their iDevice origins and now protect their first Android phone, the Samsung Galaxy S3.
Two models of the LifeProof case have arrived for the Galaxy S3 this week: The Fre, the original case from LifeProof; and the Nuud, which is similar to the Fre but is free of a screen protector and allows unobstructed access to the S3’s screen. LifeProof says these cases are the thinnest and lightest fully protective cases yet made for the S3.
TeamViewer has been around at the App Store since 2010, when its first iOS app allowed users to remotely pilot a PC or Mac.
Now TeamViewer has pulled a pulled a 180; the company’s latest trick allows any Mac or PC user to remotely peer into an iPhone, iPad or an Android device equipped with their new TeamViewer QuickSupport iOS and Android apps.
Runners, cyclists and other outdoor fitness enthusiasts are probably familiar with ANT+, a data-streaming technology that allows sensors like heart-rate monitors and bike speed or cadence sensors to communicate with something capable of displaying the data, like a watch — or a phone.
Problem is, only a very few handsets, like the Sony Xperia Ion, come standard with ANT+ technology built in. That’s where the Selfloops adapter comes in handy, allowing all those fitness sensors to talk to your phone — and it doubles as a massive 2000 mAh battery as well.

I never make snarky remarks about gadget’s name (well, almost never). It’s tough enough being a marketing guru — what with the treacherous task of having to choose font colors for product brochures or painstakingly constructing diabolical puzzles that keep the purchaser occupied for hours as he tries desperately to separate the gadget from its box — without some jerkwad tech blogger jeering at you.
But if there were a product I’d wince at and say “really?” when I looked at the name, it’d probably be the MobiAria (but I won’t. I won’t!)
Moxtra makes it easy for a team with members spread all over the country (or globe) to collaborate on the same project. Media and documents can be stored in Moxtra’s “binders,” which can then be annotated with drawing tools, voice recordings or screencasts — even in realtime. Up till now, the free app has only been available on iOS, but earlier this week it finally arrived for Android.
On the iOS side, Moxtra gets some shiny new features.
