2016 Infiniti QX60 First Drive

2016 Infiniti QX60 First Drive

Much of Infiniti's recent success has come from its crossover line-up, where it presents three distinctly different choices for luxury-seeking families. Sandwiched between the entry-level QX50 and the high performance QX70 sits the 2016 Infiniti QX60, the logically-numbered full-size hauler that combines respectable room and a comprehensive level of advanced safety, all wrapped in a premium package. Although no major changes have been made for the current model year, the QX60 has been gently refreshed to keep it current with its line-up mates and continue its task of drawing fresh blood to showrooms.

Panono Review : Throwable Panoramic Ball Camera in the house

Panono Review : Throwable Panoramic Ball Camera in the house

This is the Panono, a camera which exists in a spherical configuration, one that you're able to toss into the air to capture unique images. Back in 2011 when we first discovered this piece of technology, it was just a student project. Fast forward to now, the year 2016, and we're getting to experience the magic in final form - ready for consumers - for the first time. Is this the way of the future? Or was this an awesome idea formed before its time, executed too late to make a giant impact in its natural home market - virtual reality?

Razer Nabu Watch – More watch than smart

Razer Nabu Watch – More watch than smart

Back at CES this year, Razer made a surprise announcement. Sure, the Core external GPU solution and the Stargazer webcam, I was shown something that had little to do with gaming at all. I'm talking, of course, about the Razer Nabu Watch.

Samsung Galaxy S7 edge Review

Samsung Galaxy S7 edge Review

Lust. That's what Samsung was counting on with the Galaxy S6 edge: enough people seeing its curvaceous AMOLED screen and uncontrollably coughing up the premium over its flat-fronted sibling. Problem was, though the hardware was clever, the software made little use of it, and so with the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge arriving even sleeker and even swifter, we have to ask: has the functionality finally caught up to the flexibility?

2016 GMC Canyon Diesel Review

2016 GMC Canyon Diesel Review

There's nothing more powerful than an idea whose time has finally come, and in the world of light pickups that particularly prescient thought-form has manifested as turbodiesel power. After decades of denying diesel to anyone outside the heavy-duty truck world, both American and Japanese brands are starting to offer turbodiesel engines across a much wider range of pickup choices.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Review

Samsung Galaxy S7 Review

You could forgive Samsung for harboring a little resentment toward Android phone buyers. After all, it gave us the Galaxy S6 - and in the process answered the most vocal and persistent criticisms of build quality and style, among other things - only to see sales fail to live up to expectations. Turns out, we're a fickle bunch, smartphone buyers, and so the Galaxy S7 arrives with courage screwed to the sticking place but no guarantees. Just one big question: is this the phone to buy if you're an Android fan?

Sugru Review for LEGO customization

Sugru Review for LEGO customization

Sugru is a strange sort of self-hardening glue/clay that comes in a variety of colors and plays very, very well with LEGO bricks. It's made for all sorts of different situations, like fitting around my MacBook power cord to add some protection to the places where it normally feels the most wear and tear. When we were provided a few packs of Sugru to review for SlashGear, we didn't just want to stay within the bounds of the given example uses of the product. We wanted to use the unique qualities of Sugru to step our LEGO game up to the next level.

2016 Dodge Viper ACR Review: Snakes on a Track

2016 Dodge Viper ACR Review: Snakes on a Track

I grew up in the frozen north, which means whenever I find myself thrust into a desert environment I keep an eye out for snakes. You see, I've got all the wrong instincts when it comes to keeping my feet and hands out of the nooks and crannies where rattlers and their ilk love to hang out, and so I maintain a state of hyper-vigilance every time I set foot on the sand.

2016 Audi TT Roadster Review

2016 Audi TT Roadster Review

Audi's TT became a classic almost at the moment it was first launched and, now in its third generation, the TT Roadster can clearly trace its lines back to the original version of 1998. That was legitimately shocking at the time, a Bauhaus rocket ship that instantly left rivals looking flabby, soggy, limpid, or all three.

iPad Pro Review for artists, illustrators, and designers

iPad Pro Review for artists, illustrators, and designers

I don't use most of the advertised features of the iPad Pro. I haven't activated the split-screen multitasking feature more than a couple of times - just to see how it worked. I haven't used Siri. The iPad Pro for me hasn't been about engaging with all the bells and whistles it seemed I was meant to be excited about back when it was first revealed by Apple in September. Instead, I've been using the iPad Pro for sketching ideas and illustrating pictures, and because of this, I find myself enjoying the platform as a tool for the first time in a long time.

Kingston DataTraveler 2000 Review – Encryption made simple

Kingston DataTraveler 2000 Review – Encryption made simple

Data security and privacy is a pretty hot topic right now. Currently Apple is battling it out with the FBI over whether or not they have to unlock an iPhone. It's nice to know that (at least for now) the data on your phone is relatively safe, if you've added a passcode to it. But not everything important that you carry with you is on your phone. What if you need to carry sensitive information on a flash drive? For that, you need something special, like Kingston's DataTraveler 2000, which I've been using for a little while now.
