SlateGo Mobile AirDesk review: your laptop’s best friend

SlateGo Mobile AirDesk review: your laptop’s best friend

The term “laptop computer” is a bit misleading. Sure, your Macbook might fit on your lap, but it’s definitely not designed just for that. A flat, metal bottom that gets noticeably warm when you use it for prolonged periods only leaves you shifting in your seat, or shoving a pillow underneath. The last thing you want is to leave the comforts of your favorite chair and head to a desk. The SlateGo wants to help end your warm-legged shuffle, but does it really work? Let’s find out!

Moto 360 Review: Flawed Charm

Moto 360 Review: Flawed Charm

The Moto 360 has a lot to live up to. Motorola's wearable spoiled our first taste of Android Wear smartwatches back in July, leaving the first square-faced examples to run the platform looking hopelessly geeky in comparison.

Simplicam review: the Dropcam killer has arrived

Offering a bit more technical savvy than the Dropcam, Simplicam may end up the home security camera you should be considering instead of others it competes with.
