Muse is An Echo Dot Designed For Your Car

Want to bring Alexa into your car, of course you do. You could buy that Garmin Speak for $150 that we wrote about last month, but honestly it would just be cheaper to slap a Amazon Dot in your car. Well, apparently another company figured this out as Speak Music, a San Jose based company, have just announced the Muse, a $49 Dot for your car. Genius.

It works like a regular Dot, though it’s ergonomically designed for use in the car, and ships with a car charging cable. And like its land-based sibling, Alexa can either be activated though a tap of the button or saying ‘Alexa’. Though, do they really expect Alexa to pick up my voice when I’m blasting the Spice Girls at full volume?

The Muse seems like a no-brainer for anyone who enjoys the Alexa Assistant, as it brings the full power of the service right to your car with no compromises. Those interested can pre-order the Muse now for pre-holiday delivery at $49.

Seems like a winner, but, and I’m dead serious here, hit the jump to watch the worst acted video of all-time.

Chain Chomp Lamp For The Super Mario Fan In Your Life

Remember World 1 on Super Mario 64? Bob-Omb Battlefield? Man, when I was a kid, I used to be so afraid of the Chain-Chomp that would jump at you and make that barking noise, those were the days.

Anyway, relive those memories with the Chain-Chomp desktop lamp. Its adjustable head will allow some degree of movement, though the chain itself doesn’t move as it’s welded steel. The lamp also has a 60 lumens LED, which’ll light up that last-minute homework with much more natural light than a traditional lamp. “Wow, I can really see my procrastination.”

The Chain Chomp Lamp is available for $50, and will begin shipping in mid-December.

Tongue-in-Cheek Grammar Book is For The Grammar Nazi In Your Life

Tongue-in-cheek sounds like it’d leave a bad taste in your mouth.

We’ve all had those moments where we don’t know how to use proper grammar. Hell, I’d say every single semicolon I’ve ever used has been a complete shot-in-the-dark. But now there’s a book that’ll take your hand and guide you though the do’s and don’ts of grammar.

It’s called ‘Know Your S**t or Know You’re S**t’ and sure, you could get it for yourself to try and improve your grammar, but let’s be honest, this is the book that you get for that friend that won’t stop correcting you.

“Oh God Derek, I could care less about the new iPhone.”

“That means you do care, at least a little.”

The book is available on Amazon for $12, though you could always just find a new Derek.

Spotify Will Soon Start Selling Makeup

It seems like Spotify is trying to make a little extra dough on the side, as they’re expanding their platform to offer a makeup selection that will be offered on artist Maggie Lindemann’s Spotify page.

Now, Spotify has been allowing artists to connect with their service called Merchbar in order to sell things like posters and band tees, but this is the first time Spotify has allowed an artist to expand beyond that.

What’s next? Is Lady Gaga going to start selling cuts of beef from her dresses, or maybe Taylor Swift is going to sell the posters of Kanye that she been using as dart boards? These are slippery slopes, my friends.

The collection will be available from November 17th, and prices will range from ~$21 for lipsticks to ~$125 for full face palettes.

Bose Announces Sleepbuds For People Who Can’t Fall Asleep

Bose is trying to make it easier for people with sleep difficulties with their newest offering, the Bose Sleepbuds. They are designed to work like modern ear plugs, blocking out as much sound as possible while maintaining comfortability and have a few tricks to hopefully make catching some ZZZ’s easier.

Unlike traditional ear plugs, the Sleepbuds can play soothing noises in two different styles; one for drowning out noises, and another for relaxation. These sounds are also built-in, so you don’t need to worry about streaming from your phone all night. There’s even an alarm feature to wake you up without disturbing your partner, or the vagabond that snuck into your bed.

Unfortunately, there’s no way to add other audio, so you’re stuck with the built-in sounds. And despite Bose being known for their noise-cancelling features in the headphones, it seems the Sleepbuds don’t include this feature at all, most likely due to size constraints.

Bose is selling the Sleepbuds though Indiegogo, and a pair will set you back $175 and should ship in February 2018.

Hit the jump to see Bose’s pitch video for the Sleepbuds.

iPhone X Notch Removing App Is Now Available On The App Store

While the iPhone X is getting strong reviews, many fans are not happy about the notch, the big obstructing bezel on the top of the display which houses the cameras, sensors and speaker. But for those of you who can’t seem to adjust, there is now an app you can download to make the adjustment easier.

The app is called Notch Remover, and like its name, it removes the unsightly notch. Now, it doesn’t actually remove the notch or the functionality of it, but it hides it under a black bar that you save as wallpapers. I couldn’t find any confirmation, but it seems like this app would only apply to the home screen and lock screen.

Still, if you hate the notch that much, it’s not a bad idea to spend $0.99 on an app to try and mask it. After all, you just spent $999 on the phone itself, what’s another buck?
