When I think about the biggest changes in the world of technology over the past 10 years, one that stands out is the global transition to wireless gadgets. We’ve ditched landlines for smartphones, cable boxes for media streamers, and desktops for laptops.
Our speakers and headphones play music that’s streamed over Wi-Fi or a cellular network from a phone via Bluetooth, which is good because it probably doesn’t have a headphone jack anymore. We don’t need to plug our smartphones to a power source with a cable anymore, nor do we have to plug our gaming consoles into a router over ethernet to play games with our friends online.
This future is great for a lot of reasons, but my favorite is having a nice, clean desk that’s free of cords that are slowly fraying despite me trying to keep them in good shape. It also means fewer cables in trash cans, landfills, and junk drawers.
If you’re trying to embrace this cord-free world, the Insider Picks team can help. We’ve rounded up all of the wireless technology we use on a regular basis to help you get started. Whether you’re looking to get your first pair of Bluetooth headphones, want a rock-solid Wi-Fi system, or need a subtle way to integrate wireless chargers into your home, you’ll find what you’re looking for below.
