Apple’s AirPods made a serious splash during the holiday season with its truly wireless design and deep integration into iOS. Other manufacturers have taken note, both in design and software. Sony unveiled its new Xperia earbuds at Mobile World Congress with a few familiar features. Aside from the wire-free design, Sony’s Agent digital assistant is built-in much like Siri. From an audio standpoint, we do not often see an open-ear style on earbuds. This is typically reserved for over-ear headphones, with its ability to not only hear the music but your environment as well.

Sony is using metal materials on its latest release with an intriguing driver unit that uses bone conduction to transfer sound. Early reports out of MWC suggest that while listeners can hear noise around them, the audio is not loud enough for people nearby to be distracted. While it’s easy to see these earbuds as an audio-first device, Sony is billing them as a way to communicate with artificial intelligence. It’s important to note that the Xperia Ear is a prototype for now. If and when it comes to market, it will also have access to Google Assistant.

The Moar Folding Electric Bike doesn’t follow the trends of previous alternative energy transports that we’ve featured here on 9to5Toys. Instead of a commuter-friendly design, this two-wheeler is high-powered and ready for just about anything. It is backed by a 500W rear electric hub or 750W mid-drive motor. While it does fold up into a smaller package, Moar’s latest creation features off-road tires and a bulkier frame.

After a brief stint on Indiegogo, it has raised over $81,000, easily surpassing the initial $30,000 goal. Moar uses a 48W battery to power the internal motor, as well as a built-in LED dashboard and turn signals. Cycling enthusiasts will note the inclusion of seven-speed Shimano gears on this eBike, bringing a bit of name recognition to this crowdfunding project. The entry-level $999 model provides up to 50-miles of range while the more powerful $1,199 rendition provides around 65-miles. Stepping up to the top-end $1,999 “Rapt” version brings an 85-mile battery. Moar is expected to begin shipping units in May.

Electronics Valley (99.7% positive feedback, Top-Rated Plus Seller) via eBay Daily Deals offers Apple’s latest 13-inch MacBook Air 1.6GHz/8GB/128GB (model MMGF2LL/A) on sale for $796.99 shipped. That’s down from its list price of $999. We saw it for as low as $725 in Best Buy’s Presidents Day sale, but that deal required Visa Checkout. Shoppers in just a few states are required to pay tax at the time of purchase here, so that sweetens the deal a bit more.

This is a solid entry-level MacBook that blends performance and price. Features include two USB 3.0 ports, Thunderbolt 2, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, SDXC card slot and two microphones.

Need more storage? We still have the 256GB model on sale for $950 shipped (Reg. $1,099).
