Next-generation consoles already have to deal with the disappointment of backward incompatibility when it comes to games, so how do the accessories and peripherals hold up? The answer is mostly a mixed bag.
Want to have a better idea about the accessories you already have? What about audio specifications?

If you want a colorful cover or case for your older iPad, you'll no longer get it through Apple.
Apple will continue to sell the polyurethane accessories, which run for $39 and $49 respectively, but only in a dark gray color.
Those who want one of the five other (now discontinued) colors will have to find it from another retailer, or go with another similar accessory, which Apple … Read more
Google Glass users now have an accessory store where they can buy add-ons for their eyewear.
The Glass Accessory Store went live this week, offering just a few options for Explorers, according to user Nick Starr. An extra mono earbud will cost customers $50, while a clear shield will set them back $75. Google is also selling an extra cable and charger for $50.
Google is in the midst of improving its Glass technology. The company has promised current Explorers -- that is, early adopters of the high-tech headpiece, formally known as Google Glass Explorer Edition -- that by year'… Read more
With Google Glass being released into the wild in the coming months, Google has begun to partner with different companies to roll out accessories for its computer-enabled eyeglasses.
On the Glass Explorers forum a new thread popped up Wednesday pointing to help pages that outline how the earbuds will work, who Google has partnered with for shades and shields, how Glass charging works, along with other material.
While none of this information has been officially announced, it is publicly available for users to peruse online.
I really don't want a smartwatch. What I want is something that notifies me when a call or text message comes in. That way I'll stop missing them because I can't hear my phone ring or feel it vibrate.
The Vybe, as described, is a simple rubberized wristband with an embedded (but removable) gizmo that connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth.
When a text message comes in, it vibrates once. When a call comes in, it vibrates at 1-second intervals until you answer the call or it goes to voice mail. You can also reject a call … Read more
This announcement dovetails with an earlier statement that Samsung would push out the update on a global scale.
The Premium Suite software package will give the Samsung Galaxy S4, Galaxy S3, and Galaxy Note 2 smartphones the enhancements they need to work with the new smartwatch, a $300 accessory that previously only paired with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
One of my favorite products to come out of CES 2013 was the Nomad ChargeCard, a smartphone sync/charge cable barely larger than a credit card -- and therefore able to ride around in your wallet.
Nomad's ChargeKey is its logical successor, a smartphone sync/charge cable that rides around on your keychain.… Read more
When buyers pick up their new, thinner iPad Air or Retina Display iPad Mini in November, Apple will also be ready with accessories to protect them. At today's iPad event in San Francisco, Apple announced new leather Smart Cases for its freshly announced tablet products.
The new covers offer all-around coverage for the tablets, combining the rear and edge protection of the iPhone 5S' new case with the screen protection of a Smart Cover.
Like the new iPhone's case, these Smart Cases will be made of dyed leather on the outside that is available in six colors: brown, … Read more
I've had a love affair with high-tech watches for as long as I can remember. I still recall with fondness my beloved Casio Marlin W-300, which I cherished as a tot. I've also proudly worn some truly laughable devices out in public, much to my friends' annoyance and eventual entertainment. Remember the Pimp series from Tokyo Flash? On second thought, perhaps it's better that you don't. … Read more
