Tinkering in his kitchen, electrical engineer Nathaniel Baldwin created the first set of headphones more than a century ago and sold them to the U.S. Navy. Since that time headphones have evolved from a military tool to a consumer product. By 2016, the headphone manufacturing industry is expected to increase by $1.18 billion, according to market research firm IBISWorld.
Headphones are for more than just hearing your music or taking a call on your mobile -- these days, they're a fashion statement. And there's no lack of options when it comes to color, size and design. Of course, sound quality and price are key factors, too. Whether you're looking for a top-notch set (there are a lot of go…

It's one of the more unconventional Missed Connections ads we've seen: Boy sees girl. Boy accuses girl of farting in grocery store. Girl storms off.
Still, it seems there was a love connection -- for the boy, at least.
A man based in Moncton, Canada spotted the object of his desire at Canadian supermarket chain, Sobeys. He wrote:
You were the tall brunette with the near perfect body that farted in the bread section last night. I…

Know a Disney fan or a wannabe artist? The Disney Creativity Studio app makes a great gift. Through the app, a real Disney artist teaches you how to draw Mickey and other beloved characters with step-by-step tutorials, using your iPad and a stylus.
The Smart Stylus is your creative tool. It feels comfortable in your hand and, of course, features a cheerful picture of Mickey. The stylus magically draws different shapes and textures, like markers, crayons and stamps, as well as a variety of colors and brush sizes. A color palette appears across the top of the screen, and there's an eraser for those inevitable oopsies. Simply flip the stylus over, just like a pencil.

An employee of one of the world's biggest tech companies loses a hotly anticipated new smartphone in a bar, only for it to be found, photographed and posted on the Internet -- sound familiar?
In a case of history repeating, the Google Nexus 4 -- a yet-unannounced model rumored to be running Android 4.2 Key Lime Pie -- turned up at a bar after closing hours.
According to Wired, Jamin Barton, bartender at San Francisco's 500 Club, found the phone but wasn't able to figure out what it was: It was locked and didn't include a SIM card, but did have a "not for sale" sticker and Google logo.
Dave, a tech-knowledgeable regular at the bar, apparently went ahead and called Google HQ about…

Nostalgic for the days of getting home from school or work, firing up the PlayStation 2 and popping Grand Theft Auto: Vice City in the tray? Then get your smartphone ready: Rockstar Games on Friday officially announced the game will be ported to Android and iOS later this fall.
