Vapor’s Android app has tossed up a variety of brand-new categories that indicate the opportunity of efficiency apps and additional sorts of non-gaming software application being offered in the near-future. Varying from picture enhancing to accounting, there’s 10 groups that aren’t readily available on the desktop variation. It would open up yet an additional branch for Valve, which currently delivers books and movies with its online store, however until these categories get fleshed-out– they’re presently empty– we’re left guessing as to just what it’s likely to deliver.

We know you’ve got questions, and if you’re brave enough to ask the world for answers, here’s the outlet to do so. This week’s Ask Engadget inquiry is coming to us from reader Conception, who has a pretty hilarious story to tell.

“What is the best wireless headphones on the market (non-gaming headset — no need for microphone) for the cheapest dollar while listening to music / TV around my household and yard. One caveat is that I do not own an iPod, so they just need to work with a normal 3.5mm stereo headphone jack. What is really important to me is the fidelity of the sound, and hopefully distance away from the transmitter. It would seem to me that 900MHz is so last year, and I am tired of listening to my neighbor complain about her marriage when the unit I’m currently using picks up her phone calls. I am not afraid of paying $ 300 to $ 400 if need be but of course, the least expensive option is preferred.”
Look, this man needs help. He needs headphones that play back music, not angered divorce calls. Please help by dropping some knowledge in comments below. Thank you. Thank you.

Tease as much as you want, Sony, but things get real serious when you flip to the other side and look at the magic behind Microsoft’s Kinect camera. Recently, T3 was able to get behind the scenes for a quick lesson on how this Xbox 360 peripheral works, and as part of the tour, it also saw the innocent sensor sitting bare naked in the lab. As you can see above, this little device actually has a lot to pack in — namely the laser emitter and two IR VGA cameras for movement tracking, four downward-facing mics for voice recognition, a quiet motor stuffed inside the bulky base, and all the circuitry components to link them up. Head over to the source link for a detailed briefing — but we all know you’re just gonna go straight to the gallery of Redmond’s naughty pics.
