NVIDIA SHIELD Review

Delivered in NVIDIA SHIELD is the first full-fledged mobile device crossover into the desktop gaming universe. SHIELD is an Android-based physical gaming controller with its own clamshell hinge-attached display, powered by NVIDIA's newest mobile processor, stepping up as what the company claims is the world's most powerful mobile gaming device.

HP Slate 7 Review

HP Slate 7 Review

HP’s first go-around with a tablet didn’t actually go so well. The webOS-based TouchPad didn’t last long and was quickly discontinued. However, the company is back with another slate, only this time it’s running the more widely-adopted Android operating system, and it seems as though HP wants to give tablets another whack with its first-ever Android tablet, the Slate 7. We took a peek at it during CES 2013 back in January, and it’s a metal-infested 7-incher that looks to take on Google’s Nexus 7 with a relatively stock user interface in a clean and simple package. Let’s see how it fares.

Verizon BlackBerry Q10 Review

BlackBerry’s rolling the dice this year, with a complete overhaul of their operating system and releasing all new devices. We’ve taken a look at both the BlackBerry Z10 and Q10 in full, with the latter being a 2013 version of a classic BlackBerry device that we’ve grown to know. All four major carriers have signed on to offer the Q10, and we’ve decided to take a look at Verizon’s variant to see what the device offers on Big Red. While we’ve reviewed the Q10 before, this’ll be the first time we’ve taken a look at the handset on a US carrier, so let’s see what the QWERTY-equipped device has to offer for us Americans.

HP Pavilion 14 Chromebook Review

HP Pavilion 14 Chromebook Review

HP has officially entered into the Chromebook market with their new $329 Pavilion 14 Chromebook. As a laptop, it doesn’t deviate too far from HP standards, and it still sports the same curves and style that you’d expect out of a laptop from the company. Plus, despite being a Chromebook, it feels more like a traditional Windows laptop with it’s fairly spacious keyboard and trackpad, along with the 14-inch display. However, looks aren’t everything, and it’s the internal hardware and performance that can make or break a notebook. Is the Pavilion 14 worthy of a spot on your college laptop shortlist for the upcoming school year? Let’s find out.

Google Chromebook Pixel Review

Google Chromebook Pixel Review

Google certainly put on a spectacle when they announced the all-new Chromebook Pixel, and the display is truly wonderful. Everything about this new Chromebook is top notch. The design is elegant, the screen is crisp and beautiful, but we still have what many would probably agree is a love-hate relationship with the Chrome OS. Add in a touchscreen for our smartphone accustomed brains and we could really have something here. However, read on to find out if the $1,299 price is worth the risk.

Online banking is becoming more prevalent nowadays, with many of the big banks offering their services for free online, but what about banks that only operate online? Would it be inconvenient? Maybe a little strange? A new service called Simple looks to revolutionize online banking by taking the entire banking experience online and giving users a clean and easy user interface. However, Simple isn’t a bank, but rather a service that operates under an actual bank -- in this case, Bancorp Bank. We ended up checking out the service for ourselves -- namely the iOS app -- to see what all the fuss is about.

BMW X1 Crossover Review (2012)

BMW X1 Crossover Review (2012)

BMW doesn't believe that crossover need mean compromise, and the BMW X1 is the "premium compact" it intends to prove that with. Headed to the US for the first time this month, the smallest of BMW's X-model SUVs has already carved itself a niche in Europe. Can BMW light a fire underneath the crossover segment, and deliver a small SUV that delivers both an elevated driving position and the sort of driving dynamics the German marque is known for?
