Is the image quality worth it, though? Read our review to find out!

JmGO View packs a 180″ screen into a small package

The idea of portable projectors has been around for a while.

Plus, you're stuck using your phone's speakers for audio. That might be alright for a business presentation in conference room with the lights off. But JmGO thinks they've got something better.

New LG Minibeam projectors boast Bluetooth wireless freedom

Gone are the days when all projectors are hulking boxes of weight and heat that you'd only use sparingly at the office or some public speaking event. Now projectors are small enough to fit inside tablets and even smartphones. While that latter part might still be an eccentricity, portable projectors are becoming quite the fad. And the new members of LG's Minibeam projector line, specifically the PH550, PW1000, and PW1500 take that portability even further by adding Bluetooth connectivity into the wireless mix.

Lenovo YOGA Tablet 2 Pro Review

The Lenovo YOGA Tablet 2 Pro is a unique piece of work. Lenovo didn't fall into the same trap many manufacturers make in creating tiny boosts for their devices each year, changing only base configurations. They didn't say, hey, this YOGA Tablet is neat enough, let's just give it a better display for the tail end of 2015.

Suddenly this tablet business seems like a whole different ball-game.
