Ever since IKEA and Samsung announced that they were teaming up to introduce a line of furniture with embedded wireless charging, we have been dying to get a look at the options, prices, and opportunities to buy them. With the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, along with a handful of other devices showing love to wireless charging these days, the thought of having furniture in our lives with built-in wireless charging sounds pretty incredible.

LG Just Confirmed the Look of the G4, Luxury and Vegetable-Tanned Leather (Updated)

Remember that massive LG G4 leak that sprung over the weekend? It was all real. That was the LG G4. That still is the LG G4. LG confirmed as much last night in posts to their Facebook and Google+ profiles.
